Track Name: "Everything To Lose" - Bess Rogers
You've got no reason to be unhappy
No you've got nothing to cry about
And while you should be counting your blessings
Instead you're counting your bank account

So why so down baby, why so glum honey?
If the only thing you love is money than you're only gonna sing the blues
Why so down baby, why so glum honey?
If the only thing you want is money than you've got everything to lose

So you've been searchin' for an answer
Yeah you've been lookin' for the key
To make you wealthy beyond all measure
But you're not seeing the love that's free

So why so down baby, why so glum honey?
If the only thing you love is money than you're only gonna sing the blues
Why so down baby, why so glum honey?
If the only thing you want is money than you've got everything to lose

And you're gonna hit bottom soon
Better watch your step 'cause you're gonna hit bottom soon
Better hold your breath ‘cause you're gonna hit bottom soon
Better do your best ‘cause you're gonna hit bottom soon

Haven't you wondered about the hole inside your heart?
The piece of you missing and when the money's gonna start to fill it in
To make you whole again
To fill it in
So you can be whole again

So why so down baby, why so glum honey?
If the only thing you love is money than you're only gonna sing the blues
Why so down baby, why so glum honey?
If the only thing you want is money than you've got everything to lose
Track Name: "Travel Back" - Bess Rogers [FREE DOWNLOAD]
How could I have been so dead wrong?
For so long, for so long
Days I spent with you turned into months
And into years that are long gone

So I ask, I ask, what have I learned from the past?

That even if I could travel back, travel back, travel back
With all of the knowledge that I have
I would still be falling for you
(x2)

In my old age, I know better
That you were never, never good for me
Somehow I remember, your kisses
So very clearly

So I ask, I ask, what have I learned from the past?

That even if I could travel back, travel back, travel back
With all of the knowledge that I have
I would still be falling for you
(x2)

Ooh, ooh, ooh (repeated)

So I ask, I ask, what have I learned from the past?

That even if I could travel back, travel back, travel back
With all of the knowledge that I have
I would still be falling for you
(x3)
Track Name: "Yellow Bird" - Bess Rogers
Yellow bird in the mines
I gave you my word you'd be fine
I said I'd be at your side

One more reason to go
Far from the soot and the snow
Just another told you so

I sealed the cage around your heart
I let the birds pick you apart
I sealed the cage around your heart

Yellow bird in the mine
I gave you my word you' be fine
Track Name: "Dirty Lies" - Bess Rogers
You know those sayings meant to break your fall?
It's better to love and to lose and so on, so on
I think I've heard them too many times
‘Cause they don't change nothin'
They don't ease my mind
So shut your mouth and open your eyes

They're just dirty lies
Your mother tells you to make the pain subside
Dirty lies
You hold on to like a lover in the night
Dirty lies
You can call it wisdom
I call it denial
So keep, just keep your dirty lies

My pocket’s empty but you see my heart’s full
Well I need something my five fingers can hold
And maybe time will heal all my wounds
But I’m sick of waiting to see if it’s true
So try your best I will not be fooled

They're just dirty lies
Your mother tells you to make the pain subside
Dirty lies
You hold on to like a lover in the night
Dirty lies
You can call it wisdom
I call it denial
So keep, just keep your dirty lies

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Dirty lies
Your mother tells you to make the pain subside
Dirty lies
You hold on to like a lover in the night
Dirty lies
You can call it wisdom
I call it denial
So keep, just keep, just keep your dirty lies
Track Name: "Bulldozer" - Bess Rogers
I took a bulldozer to my brain
And from the driver's seat
Through grinning teeth
I sang that old villainous refrain
There is only room for one of us in this town

Maybe now you'll stop pushing me, pushing me around
Maybe now you'll stop holding me, holding me down

I wrote a letter to explain
That what I did to you
I had to do
‘Cause every time I skipped a beat
You were right behind saying
Don't trust him, trust me

Maybe now you'll stop pushing me, pushing me around
Maybe now you'll stop holding me, holding me down

You told me ‘bout the bad
Before the good could start
You told me it was wrong
To live with too much heart
You said it was naive

I took a bulldozer to my brain
Now can you hear that blood
Running through my veins
It's the only sound there is
It's so quiet now
So easy to give in

Maybe now you'll stop pushing me, pushing me around
Maybe now you'll stop holding me, holding me down
(x4)
Track Name: "I Don't Worry" - Bess Rogers
I don't worry about my job
Let them throw me out on the street
Let them cut my pay
I won't grovel at their feet

I don't worry about my car
Let my registration expire
Break in through the glass
Let the air out of my tires

But I can't help thinking, ooh, about you
Will you be the one to see me through?
‘Cause I'd hold on tight if I was holding on to you
Yeah I'd hold on tight if I was holding on to you

I don't think about the past
Or the things that I didn't say
What a waste of time
What a waste of energy

‘Cause I'm facing the facts
Something's coming our way
I don't worry 'bout it
Cause it's never gonna change

But I can't help thinking, ooh, about you
Will you be the one to see me through?
‘Cause I'd hold on tight if I was holding on to you
Yeah I'd hold on tight if I was holding on to you

Yeah the weather's changing and so are we
So ease my only worry
Will you be the one to see me through?

Lace your fingers between mine
And let’s close our eyes
I don't need to live to 90 if you're dying by my side

‘Cause I'd hold on tight if I was holding on to you
Yeah I'd hold on tight if I was holding on to you

Yeah the weather's changing and so are we
So ease my only worry
Will you be the one to see me through?

Will you be the one to see me through?
