Your Place Or Mine

Your Place Or Mine
Words & Music – Pat James, Ryan Blake

You walked din slowly
Sat next to me
We started talking
You said that we should leave
And then you asked me
What kind of car did I arrive in to the bar tonight
I just keep losing all my faith in love

Your place or mine

We started walking
Out the front door
You tried to tell me
You’ve never don this before
But I don’t buy it
I can tell by the way you kissed my hand and said come on lets go
I just keep losing all my faith in love

Your place or mine

I just keep dreaming
I might find
Something to hold on
One of a kind
But I’m reminded
Of all the times that I’ve been wrong before an I’ve been wronged before
I just keep losing all my faith in love

Your place or mine

Cold Blank Stare

Cold Blank Stare
Words & Music – Pat James, Ryan Blake

Oh I see that man
Oh I see that man
And I wonder
Who he is and what he wants

With that cold blank stare
With that cold blank stare
I realize
It is me he’s looking for

In another life
In another life
I have taken
What does not belong to me

You can run so long
You can run so long
Just remember
You’ll be running out of time

You can’t undue what is done in this life
Some wounds they never heal
You can’t take it back when they catch up with you
It’s the price that you pay
The price that you pay

Oh I see that man
Oh I see that man
And I wonder
Who he is and what he wants

You can run so long
You can run so long
Just remember
You’ll be running out of time

You can’t undue what is done in this life
Some wounds they never heal
You can’t take it back when they catch up with you
It’s the price that you pay
The price that you pay

My Life

My Life
Words & Music – Pat James, Ryan Blake

Someone tell me what is this place I’m in
Grey walls all around me 10 inch thick
Cold dead stares, soulless men walking around
Crying out for mercy, but no one hears a sound

My life is just familiar
My life is just familiar
My life is just familiar
To everyone but me

Crying baby your momma’s got to sleep
Working 60 hours just so you can eat
Same old story, same old town
Same old you and me and the world keeps spinning round

My life is just familiar
My life is just familiar
My life is just familiar
To everyone but me

Devil's Grin

Devil’s Grin
Words & Music – Pat James

Around quarter to 10 last night
Where the story begins
Sat down with a few of the boys
And she walked in
Red hair and skin so fair
And a Devil’s Grin
And I knew right away when she looked my way
That I would do anything
Things get a little crazy
Around quarter to one
We’re on a first name basis
No more questions son

We all come for the same thing
No matter what you say
We can get a little crazy here
Some like it that way
It don’t matter if you’re rich or poor
You can come right in
If you’re ready and willing and able to move
With a bit of sin
Things get a little crazy
Another shot of rye
When the room starts spinning
You won’t need no alibi

All I know is I’ve seen this look before
And I am sure to end up praying on the bathroom floor
Even though I say I won’t do this again
I know that I’ll be standing here with the Devil’s Grin

Woke up this morning
Saw the Devil’s Grin
Looked a little bit closer
Saw it was my reflection
Oh man you’re telling me
That was no dream last night
I came and I saw and I did and I went
And I didn’t put up a fight
Things get a little crazy
A double shot of rye
When the room starts spinning
You won’t need no alibi

All I know is I’ve seen this look before
And I am sure to end up praying on the bathroom floor
Even though I say I won’t do this again
I know that I’ll be standing here with the Devil’s Grin

Bet All My Love

Bet All My Love
Words & Music – Pat James, Ryan Blake

Anastasia sets the rules that we play
Chasing a loss is the name of the game
When I see the cards deal them out
Her tell is when I see her pout
She drives me insane

They say the good always out weighs the bad
But they’ve never been in love the way that I have
Always giving more and taking less just a sucker for a pretty dress
She drives me insane

I bet all my love
I bet all my love on you
I bet all this love that I’m feeling the pain never healing
How could you leave me this way

Every evening she walks through the door
I can’t be certain of what she loves more
Well I know that this is gonna hurt but you look so damn good in that skirt
She drives me insane

I bet all my love
I bet all my love on you
I bet all this love that I’m feeling the pain never healing
How could you leave me this way

Get My Gun

Get My Gun
Words & Music – Pat James, Ryan Blake

Phone rings at 3 am
A cold chill runs right through his skin
Phone rings at 3 am
He knows that something’s wrong

Sweet voice on the other line
Tells him everything will be just fine
Sweet voice on the other line
Says please try to stay calm

Where you running to
Gonna get my gun
Gonna take‘em down
Take’em one by one

Don’t try to hold it in
Tell me baby girls just where you’ve been
Don’t try to hold it in
Those boys they are to blame

Sometimes you cross the line
Sometimes you have to pay
Sometimes you try to run
But that won’t help you much today

Where you running to
Gonna get my gun
Gonna take‘em down
Take’em one by one

Now they’re begging for forgiveness
They say they’re sorry
Oh no no no
I don’t think so
It’s the price you have to pay for the innocence lost

Where you running to
Gonna get my gun
Gonna take‘em down
Take’em one by one

Feels Like Rain

Feels Like Rain
Words – Pat Mete

Let me get back to the faith departed
You see my hands were tied
Coming my way looking for trouble
Everybody run, everybody hide

Now you’re sitting there talking how you’re sorry
It’s time to say goodbye
No stopping what you’ve started
Everybody run, everybody hide

Feels Like Rain
