Track Name: It Don't Matter
IT DON'T MATTER - LYRICS + CHORDS

Capo 2

G
All my friends I left behind

I keep the ones I know

Everything get's lost with time

I can't wait till I'm old

C G
Till it don't matter anymore
C G
Yeah it don't matter anymore
C D
I'd rather stay at home
G C
You see I'm better off alone
G
Yeah it don't matter anymore

I thought I caught her eye

She said it ain't polite to stare

With the devil in her smile

C G
Yeah it don't matter anymore
C G
Oh it don't matter anymore
C D
I'd rather stay at home
G C
You see I'm better off alone

We came undone
C G
I've been lying
E G
I'm sorry love
C D
It's time that I get gone
Track Name: Got a Girl
I got a girl and she's got me
She plays my heart like a song
We fell in love on a summer breeze
And now it's eight years on

She brings me coffee in the morning
And loves all my favourite TV shows
Every night we'll sit for hours
Planning where we'll go

I'm made for only one
Steady like the setting sun
Girl look how far we've come
Yeah we're only getting started
And the best is yet to come

My girl likes to wear her ring
And ink on her skin
When my folks come to visit she hides it
With a cardigan

She gets down on herself sometimes
But she doesn't let it out
I see through her armor plating
And kiss her on the mouth

I'm made for only one
Steady like the setting sun
Girl look how far we've come
Yeah we're only getting started
And the best is yet to come

She came into the world
An optimistic girl
Then life hit hard and she started to doubt
Her time upon this earth
And what she's really worth
I'll tell it to you now
She's the other half of me and I'll say it loud

I'm made for only one
Steady like the setting sun
Girl look how far we've come
Yeah we're only getting started
And the best is yet to come
Track Name: Church Goin Man
I am not a church goin man
I keep my faith in my own hands
We try as best we can
With no regrets and a forward plan

No it's not the ending
Yeah the world will keep on spinning
I'll be home for the weekend
But please don't take any offense
I'm not staying

It's my, it's my time I waste
Holding on to a time and place
Goodbye, did you hear me say
I'm moving on never will I fade

No it's not the ending
Yeah the world will keep on spinning
I'll be home for the weekend
But please don't take any offense
I'm not staying

You can try to be there but you won't, won't
I've heard your sorries too many times so don't, don't
Say it again

I am not a church goin man
I keep my faith in my own hands
We try as best we can
With no regrets and a forward plan
Track Name: Headlights
It's getting too bright
I'm naked in the headlights
We bark before we bite
And hope it doesn't backfire
I feel just like an outline
Of what I should be

Everything ends eventually

How long has it been?
This road is more a pipe dream
It's time for coming clean
I've seen all there is to see
I feel just like a shadow
Of what I should be

Everything ends eventually

I'm running out of time
I've stepped upon a landmine
If I run and hide
I'll surely die by landslide
So let the fire swallow
All that I could be

Everything burns eventually
Track Name: I Believe
I believe in honesty
Simple living and poetry
Friends you can count on and family
That's more than enough for me

I always get the words all wrong
How do we find the strength to carry on
Cause it's you and I'll never let you down
I guess that's why you're keeping me around

I believe in you and me
Old romance and chivalry
We don't need money we're living free
We've got more than I ever dreamed

I always get the words all wrong
How do we find the strength to carry on
Cause it's you and I'll never let you down
I guess that's why you're keeping me around

I believe in tall tall trees
Rolling hills and winding streams
City living's not for me
Take me to the country

I always get the words all wrong
How do we find the strength to carry on
Cause it's you and I'll never let you down
I guess that's why you're keeping me around
Track Name: Since You've Gone
I've been staring into space
You would be amazed how I'm wasting all my days
Since you've gone
And left me here

I keep time by speaking in a rhyme
I must've missed the sign where it said I'd be just fine
Since you've gone
And left me here

Don't go, I said I'm sorry
Don't go, darling what's your hurry?

I've had the darkest of days
I know this might sound strange but I think I've really changed
Since you've gone
And left me here

It's been a very long year
I've grown a smallish beard and always think of you my dear
Since you've gone
And left me here

Don't go, I said I'm sorry
Don't go, darling what's your hurry?
Track Name: Last One Out
My heads up in the cloud
You say that's not allowed
Don't you ever want to make me proud?

I ain't no bastard son
I keep no loaded gun
But these hands of mine have done me well

I've been running round for days
Should I go or should I stay?
I don't wanna be the last one out
It's time you told me just what we're talking about

I'm never slowing down
This train is glory bound
Hold me tightly or we'll hit the ground

Please clear this crowded head
I feel I've been misled
I can't tell if this is making sense

I've been running round for days
Should I go or should I stay?
I don't wanna be the last one out
It's time you told me just what we're talking about
Track Name: Slowly
Oh she's a pretty one
Oh she takes what she wants
We're kept under her thumb
Waiting for a day that'll never come

Oh slowly slowly
You're heading for a fall
It don't bother me at all
That your time is running out

Look where you're going
You've run into a wall
Oh no there's no one to call
When you're on your way out

Oh she's an empty girl
Oh it's a scary world
Everything fades everything dies
While she's dreaming of once upon a time

Oh slowly slowly
You're heading for a fall
It don't bother me at all
That your time is running out

Look where you're going
You've run into a wall
Oh no there's no one to call
When you're on your way out

Now you've got nowhere to go
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
And you've got no one to hold
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Do exactly as your told
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
And start, start again
Track Name: The Door
Tell me your story and I'll tell you mine
They don't end the same way but they intertwine
I saw it coming but ignored the signs
What's done is done and I think it's time

I need more, I'm heading for the door
No I won't be back what do you take me for?
I'm leaving town, no need to stick around
I'll make my way somewhere I won't be found

I box all my things and then I close the door
You won't have to think about us anymore
Maybe someday I'll find what I'm looking for
An honest soul deep down to the core

I need more, I'm heading for the door
No I won't be back what do you take me for?
I'm leaving town, no need to stick around
I'll make my way somewhere I won't be found

We never spoke out loud
We're callous and we're proud
With our heads stuck in the ground
We go to waste
We've run the race
And we lost

I need more, I'm heading for the door
No I won't be back what do you take me for?
I'm leaving town, no need to stick around
I'll make my way somewhere I can't be found
Track Name: Fight or Flee
These days I'm living out of reach
Seems you're getting the best of me
So here's the question
Fight or flee?
I'll be running away from me

Take me home
I've had enough of this
Take me home
Take me away from here
I've been losing sleep for a while now dear
Let me go so I can rest

How did you know I'd call you bluff?
I've seen it all now I've seen enough
It's a process and mines begun
I'm not waiting till the morning comes

Take me home
I've had enough of this
Take me home
Take me away from here
I've been losing sleep for a while now dear
Let me go so I can rest
