Track Name: Crossed My Mind
Crossed My Mind
(Christopher M. Murphy)

I don’t wanna be anyone other than me.
I’m content in good company.
But sometimes my mind and my heart,
Get off to a rocky start.

I know a lot of people that got issues with me.
They hold a grudge but I forgive em’ you see.
There’s one thing my mind won’t hold onto.
Bad memories of me and you.

And that’s just fine.
It’s crossed my mind.
A hundred times.
That is why…

I got a lot of stories that begin and end with me.
But you’re the lead in this here story.
Sometimes my mind’s preoccupied.
But you should know I listen all the time.

And that’s just fine.
It’s crossed my mind.
A hundred times.
That is why…

Why can’t you see…
All the good around you?
Why can’t we be…
What we’ve always doubted?
Why can’t we be…
Ourselves?

I don’t wanna be anyone other than me.

I don’t wanna be anyone other than me.
I’m content in good company.
But sometimes my mind and my heart,
Get off to a rocky start.

And that’s just fine.
It’s crossed my mind.
A hundred times.
That is why…
A hundred times.
That is why…
Track Name: Take It Back
Take It Back
(Christopher M. Murphy)

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.

Well she thinks she’s going home down to Louisiana.
A backwards old gal I can’t even stand her.
Her jeans hang down upon her waste.
She lives her life at a slow pace.
Thumb in the air, begging for a ride.
Shoes worn thin, no future in site.
Where did ya find her my friends all ask.
Down by the corner right next to the trash.

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.

I didn’t know her name or her purpose here.
I knew she was different from what I hear.
She got a smile that’ll rival the ages.
Her mood swings in seventeen stages.
Now I’m not gentle nor am I aggressive,
But this here girl thought I was impressive.
A ford truck that my parents bought.
Driving for days yet we never fought.

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.

Yeah and all the times she cried out loud,
“My daddy treated me bad and I ain’t proud”.
A contradiction to what she was told.
I took that little lady right out of the cold.
Well we went our separate ways.
I still can’t believe shit happened that way.
And now I sing this song because, well I…
I miss her

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.
My ma’ and pa’.
Track Name: As Time Goes By
As Time Goes By
(Christopher M. Murphy)

I recollect when I was young,
Think before you speak and always hold your tongue.
The path we chose was winding through,
What we planned and what we thought we knew.

As time goes by,
Then we grew.
As time goes by,
Then we knew.

The Darkness Hides throughout the night.
It was difficult to see without the light.
We side stepped to avoid the wind.
We would so often lose it felt so good to win.

As time goes by,
Then we grew.
As time goes by,
Then we knew.

Strung Out
Strung Out
Against the odds
Against the odds

The path we chose was winding through,
What we planned and what we thought we knew.
Track Name: Going Forward
Going Forward
(Christopher M. Murphy)

You think that you are like no other.
You think a conscience doesn’t bother.
All the people that surround you.
We’ve all made mistakes and all you can do…

Is try to block out little habits.
That you no longer should do.
Ashamed but you still learn a lesson.
Now you know what not to do.

Be a better person going forward.
Be a better soul than you once were.
We’ve all made some rash decisions.
Yeah, it’s up to you from this day forth.

So take a look out all around you.
Some will fall but get back up.
But don’t let imperfections gather.
Prevent you from growing up.

Be a better person going forward.
Be a better soul than you once were.
We’ve all made some rash decisions.
It’s up to you from this day forth.
