Asbury Park 03:32
Asbury Park Asbury Park in the broken light of a new day The suns coming up from under the ocean Horizon line where the water meets the heaven I’m driving fast just to see it The boardwalk is empty in the morning before the people come Got one hand on the wheel got one hand on my heart ‘Cause I need to know I need to know theres something more something real In this life that we live I need something to believe Will you come see me if I drove there all night long Will you believe me if I sang you one last song I’m gonna drive away the dark On the streets of Asbury Park I’ve said goodbye a thousand times before But it looks like I’ll be coming back for more Its my home its my burden its my love its my chains I’m driving fast to the sea just to wash away the pain

Never Should Apologize I don’t know where it’s going I don't know how its gonna end But I want you And I wish that I could say That I never felt this way That I never made someone cry before And I know you should never ever apologize For what is in your heart And I know you should never ever apologize For feeling the way you do Maybe theres other boys out there Who all say that they care Who am I to think they don’t And I know you are free To do exactly as you please I don’t want to change a thing about you So baby here I am I’m showing you my hand I’m just a simple man But I’m not afraid to feel All the things that we conceal I’m gonna give them all away to you

Rock Bottom 04:31
Rock Bottom I’m running on empty I’m nearly broke But just like daddy said its the life you chose I’ll never settle I wont give in I’m gonna climb my way back to my feet again Spent my last twenty dollars on a tank of gas Got a car full of speakers and guitars packed At the show they paid me in free beer Now I’m all alone and standing here But I’m gonna find a way out of this hole I’ve done it now a dozen times or more The hard times don’t kill you They'll just tear down your soul Rock bottom, c’mon lets go My parents were born in a foreign land when they came here had to start again I left them when I turned eighteen Now I’m out here chasing their dream Now I may be on the losing side And I’ll be fighting my whole life But if there one thing I believe It’s that someday my song will set me free

Battles 03:48
Battles The road salt shines like diamonds On ninety five The new jersey turnpike Is a sea of red taillights Fare well darling I’m glad you got out From this wasteland From this dying town We were never lovers Were we ever friends Or were we just lost souls Crossing paths again We met when we were just kids I remember the day You were crying on the hill Playing run away Are you still running from your demons Or are you gunning for your dreams Everybody pays a price it seems We’re all fighting our own battles But not the ones we choose You better keep that fire burning inside of you Refinery lights shine Like a palace made of stars Glowing in the night As we drive to another bar The highway is on fire Humming low and deep It used to keep me up at night Now it helps me sleep

If Only I 04:05
If Only I If only I could have held myself Watched you pass like a distant dream If only I could appreciate  You as you passed me by If only I could go back to where I laid my eyes on you Then I would keep myself from falling in love with you Because here we are Both of us blue and unsatisfied  And all we’ve got to share Are the tears we cried So let the waters rise Let them wash over you Theres some things in this world  You cannot undue If only I could have just said no Let you go on your merry way If only I could have had the strength  To simply walk away If only I could have seen all the damage we could do  Then I would keep myself from falling in love with you Because here we are Both of us blue and unsatisfied  And all we’ve got to share Are the tears we cried So let the waters rise Let them wash over you Theres some things in this world  You cannot undue If only i could go back to where I laid my eyes on you Then I would keep myself from falling in love with you
