Sherry Cooke I love the beat, the vocals and acoustic blendings of this song. Corey's genius continues throughout the album! Favorite track: Perfect Ten.

Track Name: Change The World
A sleepwalkin collar with nowhere to go
Except back to work to put his head in the hole
Then he has the nerve to bitch and complain
That all the walls around him are always the same

He has his problems but don't we all
Start dialin questions man
And the answers will call

You wanna change you world you can't stand by
And just so you know man it starts inside
You gotta stop stumblin in darkness,
to start walkin in light
You wanna change you world you can't stand by

Every four years he goes out to vote
For the less of two devils, its easy, why rock the boat
They with two faces but its not a lie
Cuz we trust our TV's more than our two eyes

Turn off the TV let your mind grow
Take that cold shower man
Before there's no hope

You wanna change you world you can't stand by
And just so you know man it starts inside
You gotta stop stumblin in darkness,
to start walkin in light
You wanna change you world you can't stand by

Sally burned her bra and fights with picket signs
With nothin but the faces of our children on her mind
No diamond rings no picket fence no shopping sprees
She gave it all away, so we could see
WHY DON’T WE SEE?

She gave her all head high and walkin tall
Bloody lips and bruises man
Don't you let it go to waste

You wanna change you world you can't stand by
And just so you know man it starts inside
You gotta stop stumblin in darkness
To start walkin in light
You wanna change you world you can't stand by
Track Name: On My Way
Well I’m on my way
Gonna bask in the sun while I’m made in the shade
I’m on my way again
Gonna save my tears for the happy days

It’s been a bumpy road
But I know that I am not alone
You know I'm not alone
We all have our vices, our crosses to bare
And the demons inside will always be there
But its just an illusion, I don’t have to serve them

Well I’m on my way
Gonna bask in the sun while I’m made in the shade
I’m on my way again
Gonna save my tears for the happy days

I’ve been hard on myself
And I’m alway hearin it from
everyone else
But its much much easier when you let it flow
Cuz when you look inside you already know
Which card to play, which road to travel

Well I’m on my way
Gonna bask in the sun while I’m made in the shade
I’m on my way again
Gonna save my tears for the happy days

I know its all inside
Just gotta turn the key and start to drive
Ya give me the keys man
I feel a passion, I feel the burn
A purpose growing the more I learn
They lead to higher places and lots of smiley faces

Well I’m on my way
Gonna bask in the sun while I’m made in the shade
I’m on my way again
Gonna save my tears for the happy days
Track Name: Take This Ring
Walkin through my life with half a smile on my face
standing all alone with my shadow
tryin real hard not to open doors to more empty space
Wonderin’ will I get some fire to light my way
 
Then I saw you there with a smile on your face & a spark in your eye
And now i'm standing here cuz I know I can't let you go
 
Take, Take this ring and me mine for evermore
be the beat of my heart and my sunshine when its grey
All I need is you like the birds need the sky
to spread their wings and fly away Just take this ring my love
 
Since we met i don't wanna spend a second without you
You make me laugh and your always quick with a compliment
When we're apart, I get goosebumps just thinkin about you
I crave your touch, it makes me feel so alive
 
Now I see you there with a smile on your face & a spark in your eye
and now i'm standing here cuz I know I can't let you go
 
Take, Take this ring and me mine for evermore
be the beat of my heart and my sunshine when its grey
All I need is you like the birds need the sky
to spread their wings and fly away Just take this ring my love

I wanna see you there, every morning when I wake up and I open my eyes
And when I lay down at night I wanna hold you till drift away

Take, Take this ring and me mine for evermore
be the beat of my heart and my sunshine when its grey
All I need is you like the birds need the sky
to spread their wings and fly away Just take this ring my love
Track Name: Minnesota Got Colder
Take another step toward the light
We are gathered here to celebrate your life
Endless rows of flowers represent the life you gave
From the lives you touched in oh so many ways

I can’t believe you’re gone

Minnesota got cold colder today
But all the tears I cry they won't wash away
Smiles we shared and mountains that we moved
these memories keep me walking with you.... and you feel so alive

Pictures cast a sunlight they warm this cold and empty space
they record your beaming face on your happiest days
You made your difference you showed us what it means to be alive
Hugging every moment before they walk on by

I can’t believe you’re gone

Minnesota got cold colder today
but all the tears I cry they won't wash away
smiles we shared and mountains that we moved
these memories keep me walking with you.... and you feel so alive

if you were right now i know what you would say
life is for the living, don't cry over me
we'll meet again sometime and we'll laugh it all away
But for now, I'm in better place, better place

Minnesota got cold colder today
but all the tears I cry they won't wash away
smiles we shared and mountains that we moved
these memories keep me walking with you.... and you feel so alive
Track Name: One Step At A Time
Feelin Kinda Lazy like a bump on a log
Like a cold hard stone like a junkyard dog
Think I grab a beer and a smoke

I’ve been beaten down from a long hard week
And now I’m sittin down with a front row seat
To a bartender named Puff

Gonna take my time one step at a time

Well its cold outside, there is snow in the air
My fingers and my toes don’t feel all there
But I’m warm inside baby

Winters fine but its way to long
So grab yourself a bottle of something strong
And stick around around, for awhile

Gonna take my time one step at a time

Well I’ve been waitin all week for a little bit relaxation
I got a real bad case of beer starvation

Now the suns shinin bright and I don’t seem to care
About anything else except my big lawn chair
And my big red cooler

Funny how the stars align
When your all laid back with a peaceful mind
Luxury is all in your mind

Gonna take my time one step at a time
Gonna take my time one step at a time
Track Name: Perfect Ten
How’s it going? where you been?
Could YOU be my perfect ten?
Fast and furious, slow and easy
Angel innocent, sexy sleazy

On and on preoccupied
Always looking for that one great ride
You think I’d learn, you’d think I see
But that’s just not my reality

And I’m going down
Yes I’m going down, down
But it can’t get me down
Cuz the perfect ten is just a fantasy

Then one day through doubting eyes
I finally came to realize
Like old St. Nick and a tooth mad fairy
The ONE’S not who a person marries

Understanding, forgiveness and trust
all real, not surreal like self serving lust
you gotta take the time, gotta give to take
and you gotta respect for the cycle to break

And I’m going down
Yes I’m going down, down
But it can’t get me down
Cuz the perfect ten is just a fantasy

No perfect ten in any face I see
While the whole world rests on bended knee
peace and love and happiness
Are all part of a greatest quest

So I keep looking, I keep searchin
I keep lovin and I keep on hurtin
Its not about what I take in life
But what I’m willing to sacrifice

And I’m going down
Yes I’m going down, down
But it can’t get me down
Cuz the perfect ten is just a fantasy
Track Name: To All The Girls (Bitterness)
To all the girls I’ve loved before
Who left me feeling oh so sore
I’ve got a little song for you

You’ve broke me down you've lied to me
And now its time for you to see
The evils of your ways

To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell
To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell

You’ve slapped me up, punched my face
Wrote dear Johns from out of state
Screwed a guy right under me

Controlled my ways, stomped my pride
Announcing all that I confide
All because my dick did the thinkin

To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell
To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell

Noodles in, LaCreatures grin
Direct it all right at my chin
I can only look back and smile

You showed me how your sweet caress
Could turn into such bitterness
Time to let it go

To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell
To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell

Left me alone with Alan Jackson
You could always keep me guessin
You said it not my fault

I’ve always let myself get played
Always let my manhood fade
NEVER AGAIN BABY

To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell
To all the girls I’ve loved before
You can all just go to hell
