Track Name: The Sun Shall Shine
It can’t always be bright and sunny
it won’t always stay dark and gray
remember that the rain is temporary
and better days are heading your way

There’s bound to be some pain now and then
You’ve got to make it through and do the best you can
Don’t worry ‘bout those rainy days, my friend
for the sun shall shine upon you again

I know that the rain can make you weary
walking through the darkness for so long
Sometimes the rain is necessary
Sometimes our mistakes help make us strong

There’s bound to be some pain now and then
You’ve got to make it through and do the best you can
Don’t worry ‘bout those rainy days, my friend
for the sun shall shine upon you again

The cloudy days will clear away
though we may not know when
You will find that in time
well, the sun shall shine upon you again

guitar…

There’s bound to be some pain now and then
You’ve got to make it through and do the best you can
Don’t worry ‘bout those rainy days, my friend
for the sun shall shine upon you again

the sun shall shine upon you again
the sun shall shine upon you again
Track Name: Lucky with You
I may not have a million bucks
but that don’t matter one bit
‘Cause what I got is so damned good
I just can’t get enough of it

No matter where our lives may take us
no matter where we go
No matter what the future brings us
there’s one thing I know

I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky it’s true
I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, ’Cause I got lucky
Lucky with you

I may not have a bit old house
but what I got is just fine with me
‘Cause it’s my castle and I feel like a king
just as long as you are my queen

No matter where our lives may take us
Or what the future brings
throughout life’s uncertainty
I’m sure of just one thing

I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky it’s true
I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, ’Cause I got lucky
Lucky with you

i can dream that in the future
I finally get my due
But even if that day never comes
I still got lucky with you…
…and I think you got lucky too..

I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky it’s true
I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, ’Cause I got lucky
Lucky with you

Lucky with you
Track Name: What Do I Have To Do?
I poured out my heart
and let you into my mind
and it tears me apart
that you won’t lend me your time
I’m not asking for a lot
just you give this a try
and if it’s not what you want
I won’t question your good-bye

What do I have to do
just to get through to you
What do I have to say
just so you look my way
I always seem to lose
No matter how I choose
so tell me what do I have to do?

Well now I understand
I’m not the only one that’s out there
I feel like a grain of sand
washed up along the beach
Well now I wish I could
find a way to make you notice
But no matter what I do
you’re always out of reach... yeah..
you’re always out of reach

<solo>

What do I have to do
just to get through to you
What do I have to say
just so you look my way
I always seem to lose
No matter how I choose
so tell me what do I have to do?

I always seem to lose
No matter how I choose
so tell me what do I have to do?
Track Name: Internal Combustion
You’ve got curves in all the right places
One look at you and I wanna take a ride
All your proportions have me off to the races
my motor’s running and that I can’t deny

I’m overheating, Can barely function
internal meltdown, spontaneous combustion

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow, well, you know
Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow, and there you go…

Your frame’s so tight, what a nice chassis
I can’t wait till i get to squeeze inside
You’re so racy, and yet so classy
Let’s take it up to the red line tonight

Can’t help myself such sweet seduction
Let’s rev it up, yeah Internal Combustion…

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow, well, you know
Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow, and there you go…

I’m out of gas Thrashed for an hour
you keep it running switch to battery power…

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow, well, you know
Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow, and there you go…

Internal...
Combustion...
Track Name: Sweet Like Candy
I try to keep it clean but I always find
she’s a sticky situation always on my mind
I pretend to deny it but it’s plain to see
when she’s around my sweet tooth gets the better of me

Sweet like candy, she’s sweet like Candy
Sweet like candy yeah she’s so fine
Sweet like candy she’s sweet like candy
Got to have some candy baby all of the time…

Honey glisten on my fingers sugar glaze everywhere
I know she’s just too much but I don’t really care
when she licks her cherry lips it drives me insane
I love her cream filled center and she loves my candy cane…

Sweet like candy she’s sweet like candy
Sweet like candy yeah she’s so fine
sweet like candy she’s sweet like candy
Got to have some candy baby all of the time…

Sweet like candy sweet sweet like candy
Sweet like candy yeah it’s all right
Sweet like candy sweet sweet like candy
Sweet like candy baby all night

Sweet like candy sweet sweet like candy
Sweet like candy yeah it’s all right
Sweet like candy she’s sweet like candy
Sweet like candy baby all night

[solo]

Sweet like candy she’s sweet like candy
Sweet like candy yeah she’s so fine
sweet like candy she’s sweet like candy
Got to have some candy baby all of the time…

Sweet like candy sweet sweet like candy
Sweet like candy yeah it’s all right
Sweet like candy sweet sweet like candy
Sweet and sticky candy baby all through the night.
Track Name: Nothing
Inertia sets in a body at rest
Every day is a brand new test
Will you WON’T or will you DO?
Life sets forth this challenge to you

Nothing is free and nothing is easy
Put nothing in and
nothing’s what you’ll get in return

Inertia sets in a victim is found
but will you go and let it slow you down?
It’s always hardest before you begin
The only changes can come from within

Nothing is free but it’s guaranteed
when nothing is invested then
nothing will be all that you earn

We all know that time should not be wasted
We can never go back and do it over again
There’s no time for us to be complacent
Just remember that time is not our friend…
and nothing is easy…

<solo>

Nothing is free and nothing is easy
Put nothing in and
nothing’s what you’ll get in return
Nothing is free but it’s guaranteed
when nothing is invested then
nothing will be all that you earn

When nothing is attempted then
Nothing will be all that you learn…

Nothing is easy… Nothing is easy…
Nothing is easy… Nothing is easy…
