    Half your life you struggle
    Half your life you fly
    Half your life makin' trouble
    Half your life makin' it right
    One day I'm the exception
    Most days I'm just like most
    Some days I'm headed in the right direction
    And some days I ain't even close

    I'm a little bit steady but still little bit rollin' stone
    I'm a little bit heaven but still a little bit flesh-and-bone
    Little found, little don't-know-where-I-am
    I'm a little bit holy water but still a little bit burning man
    Burning man yeah

    I always loved the highway
    I just don't run it as fast
    I still go wherever the wind blows me
    But I always find my way back
    I still don't get it right sometimes
    I just don't get it as wrong
    I still go a little bit crazy sometimes
    Yeah, but now I don't stay near as long

    I'm a little bit steady but still little bit rollin' stone
    I'm a little bit heaven but still a little bit flesh-and-bone
    Little found, little don't-know-where-I-am
    I'm a little bit holy water but still a little bit burning man
    Burning man
    Still just a burn, burn, burning man
    Just a burning man, uh

    Maybe I'll go to the desert
    Find myself in the Joshua Tree
    If we pass in the night then just hand me a light
    And tell me you burned just like me

    I'm a little bit steady but still little bit rollin' stone
    I'm a little bit heaven but still a little bit flesh-and-bone
    Little found, little don't-know-where-I-am
    I'm a little bit holy water but still a little bit burning man
    Burning man
    Still just a burn, burn, burning man
    Just a burning man

    Uh uh

    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Jon Randall, Luke Dick, Natalie Hernby
    Produced By: Arturo Buenahora, Jr., Jon Randall Stewart, Ross Copperman


    Well I bet my soul on a six string gamble
    And I climb like hell through the brush and the bramble
    Even though I had my doubts, told myself don't look down
    And I turned that hill into a pile of gravel

    It was only a mountain, nothing but a big ol' rock
    Only a mountain, it ain't hard if you don't stop
    It just took a little step, a right then a left
    Then a couple million more, who's counting?
    Yeah, that's only a mountain

    Well you better know the bottom if you wanna be a climber
    'Cause there's always another one a little bit higher
    Just when I think I'm finally done I'm staring at another one
    So I reach down deep and I lace 'em up tighter

    It was only a mountain, nothing but a big ol' rock
    Only a mountain, it ain't hard if you don't stop
    It just took a little step, a right then a left
    Then a couple million more, who's counting?
    Yeah, that's only a mountain

    Now I'm standing at the top with the sweat behind me
    Yeah, you gotta look up if you ever wanna find me

    It was only a mountain, nothing but a big ol' rock
    Only a mountain, it ain't hard if you don't stop
    It just took a little step, a right then a left
    Now I'm standing at the top just shouting
    Yeah, that's only a mountain
    It's only a mountain, it's only a mountain
    Only a mountain
    Only a mountain, it was only a mountain

    Produced By: Arturo Buenahora, Jr., Jon Randall Stewart, Ross Copperman


    This mornin' I got up at 6:01
    I walked out and saw the rising sun
    And I drank it in like whiskey
    I saw a tree I've seen a thousand times
    A bird on a branch and I watched it fly away in the wind
    And it hit me
    It's a beautiful world sometimes I don't see so clear

    Some days you just breath in
    Just try to break even
    Sometimes your heart's poundin' out of your chest
    Sometimes it's just beatin'
    Some days you just forget
    What all you've been given
    Some days you just get back
    And some days you're just alive
    Some days you're livin'
    Some days you're livin'

    I went back in and fired the coffee up
    She walked in the kitchen like she always does
    In my t-shirt and it killed me
    And I kissed her like it was the first time
    She laughed and looked at me like I'd lost my mind
    I said "Baby, I love you, can't live without you, I know I don't say it enough"

    Some days you just breath in
    Just try to break even
    Sometimes your heart's poundin' out of your chest
    Sometimes it's just beatin'
    Some days you just forget
    What all you've been given
    Some days you just get back
    And some days you're just alive
    Some days you're livin'
    Some days you're livin'

    Like you never die
    Blue's a little bluer up in the sky
    You're high's a little high
    You feel that fire you've been missing
    Some days you're living

    It'a beautiful world sometimes I don't see so clear

    Some days you start singin'
    And you don't need a reason
    Sometimes the world's just right
    Your clear eyes ain't even blinkin'
    Got a heart full of grateful
    For all you've been given
    Some days you just get by
    Yeah some days you're just alive
    Some days you're livin'
    Some days you're livin'

    Livin' like you'll never die
    Blue's a little bluer up in the sky
    You're high's a little high
    You feel that fire you've been missin'
    Some days you're living
    Some days you're living

    Woman, Amen

    "Woman, Amen"
    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Josh Kear, Ross Copperman
    Produced By: Ross Copperman


    I'd lose my way and I'd lose my mind
    If I faced one day on my own
    I know I was saved
    The night that she gave this drifter's heart a home

    Every night I should be on my knees
    Lord knows how lucky I am
    I'll never say near enough
    Thank God for this woman, Amen

    This world has a way of shaking your faith
    I've been broken again and again
    But I need all the cracks in my shattered heart
    Cause that's where her love gets in

    Every night I should be on my knees
    Lord knows how lucky I am
    I'll never say near enough
    Thank God for this woman, Amen

    She gives me faith
    She gives me grace
    She gives me hope
    She gives me strength
    She gives me love
    Love without end
    Thank God for this woman, Amen

    Thanks for the moon and the stars up above
    Forgiveness of sin in your undying love
    Every twist every turn for the way you made sure
    All my roads led to her

    So tonight I will fall down on my knees
    Cause Lord knows how lucky I am
    I'm gonna shout at the top of my lungs
    Thank God for this woman, Amen
    And thank God for this woman, Amen

    She gives me faith
    She gives me grace
    She gives me hope
    She gives me strength
    She gives me love
    Love without end
    Thank God for this woman, Amen

    You can try to wrap your words like rocks around my ankles
    And push me off a bridge in hope that I might drown
    Any cheap shots that you got, yeah, I can handle
    You don't get this far without knowing how to get up off the ground

    So I turn up a cold one, and I turn up the volume
    On life, on love, on the way I feel right now
    Yeah, I learned how to let go, and how to take the high road
    I'm on another level, you can't bring me down
    Na na na na na na

    Na na na na na na

    I'll be the first to say I've made some bad decisions
    I been a little quick to call the kettle black
    But it's true what they say about forgiveness
    And once you find a man, there ain't nothing that can hold you back

    So I turn up a cold one, and I turn up the volume
    On life, on love, on the way I feel right now

    There ain't nothing like the way my baby holds me
    There ain't nothing like this sweet piece that I've found
    It takes off all the shackles, so save yourself the battle
    Yeah, ha, you can't bring me down

    So I turn up a cold one, and I turn up the volume
    On life, on love, on the way I feel right now

    "Nothing On But The Stars"
    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Jon Randall, Jon Mark Nite, Ross Copperman

    You know we didn't get it right
    But it wasn't all wrong
    It wasn't just a phase
    And it isn't all gone
    Before we go and let the lonely
    Do what it does
    I want one more memory of us

    With nothing on but the stars
    Through the window pane
    Burn your silver silhouette into my brain
    I can't have you forever
    But I'll take tonight
    I wanna remember you right now just like you are
    With nothing on but the stars
    Yeah

    You can take your things
    And I'll take my mine
    Before you go and leave it all behind
    I wanna drink you all up
    And you soak you all in
    And watch those constellations crawl across your skin

    With nothing on but the stars
    Through the window pane
    Burn your silver silhouette into my brain
    I can't have you forever
    But I'll take tonight
    I wanna remember you right now just like you are
    With nothing on but the stars
    My hands in your hands in the dark nothing on but the stars

    'Cause I ain't ready to let you let me go
    Just give me one more night to hold you close

    With nothing on but the stars
    I can't have you forever
    But I'll take tonight
    I wanna remember you right now just like you are
    With nothing on but the stars
    My hands in your hands in the dark nothing on but the stars

    Before we go and let the lonely
    Do what it does

    Goodbye in Telluride

    "Goodbye In Telluride"
    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Ashley Glenn Gorley, Ross Copperman, Scooter Carusoe
    Produced By: Ross Copperman, Jon Randall, Arturo Buenahora Jr.

    Baby, you ain't gotta wait forever
    Before you go and break my heart
    If you're thinking that we shouldn't be together
    Just leave me in the dark a little longer

    Do it on the highway, do it on the drive way
    Chevrolet backing out
    But not here in this cafe booth with you
    Don't ruin this perfect time

    Say it's over over on the west coast somewhere
    In the middle of the city, New Years Eve time square
    If you gotta let me go I'm gonna be alright
    Just don't tell me goodbye here in Telluride
    No, don't take me down low when we're up this high
    Don't you tell me goodbye here in Telluride

    Ever since we touched down in Colorado
    I could tell something wasn't right
    'Cause you look at those snow capped mountain
    You won't look into my eyes

    Do it in a text, better yet in a letter
    You can leave my pillow case
    You can rack me back in Tennessee
    Anywhere but this place

    Say it's over over on the west coast somewhere
    In the middle of the city, New Years Eve time square
    If you gotta let me go I'm gonna be alright
    Just don't tell me goodbye here in Telluride
    No, don't take me down low when we're up this high
    Don't you tell me goodbye here in Telluride

    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh

    Do it on the highway, do it on the drive way
    Chevrolet backing out
    But not here in this cafe booth with you
    Don't ruin this perfect town

    Don't say it's over underneath this sky so blue
    Don't say it's over, have a little mercy girl, won't you?

    Say it's over from your window seat on our flight home
    Maybe once we get back do it over the phone
    If you gotta let me go I'm gonna be alright
    Just don't tell me goodbye here in Telluride
    No, don't take me down low when we're up this high
    Don't you tell me goodbye in Telluride
    Don't you tell me goodbye in Telluride

    My Religion

    "My Religion"
    Written By: Ben Burgess, Rick Markowitz, Michael Pollock, Jamie Kenney
    Produced By: Ross Copperman, Jon Randall, Arturo Buenahora Jr.

    I fell in love on the L train
    Headed somewhere north of where you are
    Thought I knew where I was going
    Now I know I'm going where you are

    Ain't gonna lie I've been drinking
    That Colorado's got me stoned
    And every time I close my eyes the angels are singing
    Loving you ain't my decision
    Loving you is my religion

    I wanna hear what's been hurting
    I carve that on a bench in Central Park
    And when I showed up there the next day
    You'd written your initials in a heart

    Ain't gonna lie I've been drinking
    That Colorado's got me stoned
    And every time I close my eyes the angels are singing
    Loving you ain't my decision
    Loving you is my religion

    I'm in love out in LA
    Paris, Tokyo, coast to coast
    And it's you that keeps me going
    Love from you will always mean the most

    Ain't gonna lie I've been drinking
    That Colorado's got me stoned
    And every time I close my eyes the angels are singing
    Loving you ain't my decision
    Loving you is my religion

    One Way

    "One Way"
    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Jeff Hyde, Laura Jeanne Veltz
    Produced By: Ross Copperman, Jon Randall, Arturo Buenahora Jr.

    Well she could be like a song
    The kind that with time always comes back on
    Something tells me she's gone
    There's no coats, there's no rhymes
    There's no singing along

    I pushed her a little too far for a little too long
    It's a little too late to keep her from
    Highways and byways that'll take her anywhere but my way
    There's so many ways she could say goodbye
    Railways and runways
    From the way she was looking, I'm afraid that
    Whatever the way, it's gonna be one way this time

    Well she was like my guitar
    Always waiting around just to be in my arms
    But you can't play with a heart
    Shouldn't ever have left her alone in the dark

    I couldn't see it back then
    Ah but look at her now
    You can't pick it back up once it's headed down

    Highways and byways that'll take her anywhere but my way
    There's so many ways she could say goodbye
    Railways and runways
    From the way she was looking, I'm afraid that
    Whatever the way, it's gonna be one way this time

    I pushed her a little too far for a little too long
    Gave her little choice but to get on

    Highways and byways that'll take her anywhere but my way
    There's so many ways she could say goodbye
    Railways and runways
    From the way she was looking, I'm afraid that
    Whatever the way, it's gonna be one way this time
    Whatever the way, it's gonna be one way this time

    Son of the Sun

    "Son of the Sun"
    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Jon Randall, Jon Mark Nite
    Produced By: Ross Copperman, Jon Randall

    There's a cactus fly where somewhere out there
    Knows my deepest thoughts
    There's a tumbleweed inside of me that's never gonna stop
    There's a mountain out there somewhere I still haven't climbed
    You know I love you baby, I just need a little time

    'Cause I'm a son, of the sun
    A brother to the sky
    Sometimes I gotta lose myself so I don't lose my mind
    I get some dust on my boots
    Found some truth in the blue
    Let the desert air burn inside my lungs
    'Cause baby I'm a son of the sun

    I wanna look down on a valley
    Where the river splits the stone
    And Let the great wide open
    Open wide my soul
    I could never live without you
    I always come back to you
    But sometimes I need to catch the wind
    And go howl at the wind

    'Cause I'm a son, of the sun
    A brother to the sky
    Sometimes I gotta lose myself so I don't lose my mind
    I get some dust on my boots
    Found some truth in the blue
    Let the desert air burn inside my lungs
    'Cause baby I'm a son of the sun

    I'm a son, of the sun
    A brother to the sky
    Sometimes I gotta lose myself so I don't lose my mind
    I get some dust on my boots
    Found some truth in the blue
    Let the desert air burn inside my lungs

    Written By: Dierks Bentley, Heather Lynn Morgan, Ross Copperman

    Found some old forgotten photographs, yeah
    Looking at them kinda made me laugh, at the
    Big hair and the, drunk smile
    I ain't seen him in quite a while

    I been lucky to live two lives but I
    Wouldn't want to live that one twice
    Yeah the past is best left on the shelf

    I was a stranger to myself
    Before you came along
    Who I was back then is like an old forgotten song
    You showed me who I am
    You handed me the keys
    And I unlocked the door to the better part of me
    Without your love
    I'd still be
    Someone else
    A stranger to myself

    Just sitting on the porch with you
    Knowing now what I never knew, like
    How much more the laughter is, when you
    Have someone, to share it with
    You stretched this heart of mine
    A million miles wide
    You wouldn't even recognize the old me

    A stranger to myself
    Before you came along
    Who I was back then is like an old forgotten song
    You showed me who I am
    You handed me the keys
    And I unlocked the door to the better part of me
    Without your love
    I'd still be
    Someone else
    A stranger to myself

    Without your love, without your kiss
    Showed me what life really is
    I never wanna go back there again
    To when

    I was a stranger to myself
    Before you came along
    Who I was back then is like an old forgotten song
    You showed me who I am
    You handed me the keys
    And I unlocked the door to the better part of me
    Without your love
    I'd still be
    Someone else
    A stranger to myself

    I used to carry my past like a duffel bag
    It's been hurting my head and breaking my back
    But when you live in the rear view you just crash
    Oh, I'm done carrying my past like that

    I'm travellin' light

    With all my hurt and my regrets and my mistakes
    I'm tired of living unforgiven
    So I'm travelling light
    Oh, I'm travelling light

    Don't lay the blame on anyone else
    I'm always last to forgive myself
    Well starting over is overdue

    And it's all gonna be alright
    I only got room for some love and some truth
    And a little bit of peace of mind

    So I'm travelling light
    And I'm laying it down
    All those demons, I left 'em buried in the ground
    I'm cutting the ties

    How I'm Going Out

    "How I'm Going Out"
    Written By: Jessi Alexander, Jon Randall
    Produced By: Ross Copperman, Jon Randall, Arturo Buenahora Jr.

    Someday somebody's gonna stop and look
    Or scratch their head and say
    "What happened to him? It's been a while since I heard that name"
    The story goes
    I told one last joke, bum one more smoke
    And then paid my tab and just disappeared one day

    I've kicked around this old town long enough to see
    The one's who left to soon
    And the ones who didn't know when to leave

    And when it's my turn to jump off this carousel
    I'm gonna ride on that white horse and run like hell
    Be thankful for the friends I've made
    The hungry years, the glory days
    Give 'em one more song and lay this guitar down
    That's how I'm going out

    When I go
    I'll be another page torn away, a memory made
    Another ghost on music road
    But I can say
    I gave it hell, I rang the bell
    But I'll know when there's no more dreams to chase

    And when it's my turn to jump off this carousel
    I'm gonna ride on that white horse and run like hell
    Be thankful for the friends I've made
    The hungry years, the glory days
    Give 'em one more song and lay this guitar down
    That's how I'm going out
    That's how I'm going out

    And when it's my turn to jump off this carousel
    I'm gonna ride on that white horse and run like hell
    No slowing down, no looking back
    Let the credits roll and fade to black
    Give 'em one more song and lay this guitar down
    Sing one more song and lay this guitar down
    That's how I'm going out

    That's how I'm going out
    Someday somebody's gonna stop and look
    Or scratch their head and say
    "What happened to him? It's been a while since I heard that name"
