Track Name: Too Far Gone (Demo)
"Too Far Gone"
(Words and music by James Dunning)

I know it's late so I'll be quick
Wanted to hear you voice a bit
Another hour we're in LAX
And it's too far gone

When you dream, dream of me
Play my CD and let it be
Fall asleep under that willow tree
It's too far gone

When you wake in the early light
My heart, my mind, my soul just might be near

There's a pot of gold out in Hollywood
I'll never find, but I wish I could
Can't tell the Bad from beneath the Good
'Cause their too far gone

And how I wish that you were hear
To hold me close and call me dear
With your strength I no longer fear
What's too far gone

When you wake in the early light
My heart, my mind, my soul just might be near
Close your eyes, count back from 10
I would if I could start all over again

Oh, too far gone
Oh, too far gone

I didn't play my best show
But tin-eared giants will never
When ink is dry we'll hit the road
And be too far gone

I'm heading east on a midnight plane
Thoughts of you blurring with the rain
Silver wings yield a yellow flame
Now I'm too far gone

When you wake in the early light
My heart, my mind, my soul just might be near
Close your eyes, count back from 10
I would if I could start all over again

Oh, too far gone
Oh, too far gone
Track Name: Long Way Down (Demo)
"Long Way Down"
(Words and music by James Dunning and Craig Hinkle)

Get up
Don't fight the feeling
Just bite the bullet
I know your name

Downtown
I say your lady
She was looking so fine
You know I'm game

Here we go now, baby
Lay that hammer down
Stop messing around
It's just a long way down

Hot damn
Just take the shot now
Let it slide on back
You're feeling all right

Shut up
You've been talking too much
Just walk on away
'Cause you're out of sight

Here we go now, baby
Lay that hammer down
Stop messing around
It's just a long way down

And i want to know
All of the lies
You like to sing

Here we go now, honey
Lay that hammer down
Stop messing around
it's just a long way down

Here we go now, baby
Lay that pedal down
Stop messing around
It's just a long way down

It's just a long way down
It's just a long way down
Track Name: Hey Tommy (Demo)
"Hey Tommy"
(Words and music by James Dunning and Craig Hinkle)

Hey Tommy, why did you go?
I didn't even get a chance to say "hello"
Better still, won't you take me along?
I guess it's been too long to find me now

How did you see it all coming down?
Was it a vision you had
Or daydreams possibly, that made you see
It was time for an exit from mediocrity?

So you ran to the place
Where the sunsets are free
And the people that you love
Are tightly held memories
Oh, I wish I could go
How I wish, wish I had known
Hey, Tommy
Hey, Tommy, why did you go?

Hey Tommy someone said your name
Just the other day, but it's all the same
Seems to me they think you're dead
They've forgotten the colors to paint inside their head

Hey Tommy, I wanna run
Like a bullet shot from a desperate gun
Faster than light and sound combined
Hey Tommy, tell me what did you find?

When you ran to the place
Where the sunsets are free
And the people that you love
Are distant memories
Oh, I wish I could go
How I wish, wish I had known
Hey, Tommy
Hey, Tommy, why did you go?

Yeah, put 'em all in line
And I'll be the first to buy
Buy a ticket to their show
Heaven help me and those who know
That you found it somewhere
Where the skies are always clear
Like a city on a hill
You life really fits the bill
And I'd like to die the way that you did
But I'd have to lose myself
And I've worked so hard on me
Here in my life of mediocrity

So you ran to the place
Where the sunsets are free
And the people that you love
Are tightly held memories
Oh, I wish I could go
How I wish I could go
Hey, Tommy
Hey, Tommy, why did you go?
Track Name: Don't Wait on Me (Live)
"Don't Wait on Me"
(Words and music by James Dunning)

The call went out
But I wasn't there
Slipping into this
Familiar despair
I did what I could
But you wanted more
Hard to reach you
Lying here on the floor

Don't wait on me, girl
Don't wait on me, girl
You don't wait on me, girl
Do you?

I tasted life
Then I tasted love
Floated away
To the stars high above
Come into my world
And see what you see
An emptier shelf
Where a heart used to be

Don't wait on me, girl
Don't wait on me, girl
You don't wait on me, girl
Do you?

I did what I can
To make this pain fade
And after you're gone
I'll still be the same

Don't wait on me, girl
Don't wait on me, girl
You don't wait on me, girl
Do you?
