Travis Garman Really different sound than the HALA project, and it's refreshing. Nicely done Ian. Favorite track: IF SHE WAS THE TRAFFIC, I WOULD NEVER GET LOST.

Track Name: QUINCY, DON'T CRY
QUINCY, DON'T CRY.
YOU GOT A LOVER AND ANOTHER ONE AT YOUR SIDE.
QUINCY, DON'T CRY.
I'LL BE YOUR BROTHER AND YOUR SISTER, IN DOUBLE TIME.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WILL EVER.
BREAK THAT CURSE THAT YOU FOREVER.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE DARKNESS YOU KNOW.

QUINCY DON'T CRY.
YOU GOT A LOVER AND ANOTHER ONE AT YOUR SIDE.
QUINCY DON'T CRY.
I'LL BE YOUR BROTHER AND YOUR SISTER, EVEN ON THE DIME.

I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE, YEAH.
PEOPLE TEND TO DECEIVE YOU.
I WILL NEVER KNOW THE DARKNESS YOU DO.

QUINCY....

QUINCY DON'T CRY.
YOU GOT A LOVER AND ANOTHER ONE AT YOUR SIDE.
QUINCY DON'T CRY.
I'LL BE YOUR BROTHER AND YOUR SISTER, EVEN ON THE DIME.
Track Name: LOVE HER SOMEHOW
SHE'S GOT ME RUNNING FOR MY LIFE,
I HAVE BEEN HERE EVERYNIGHT.
NEVER SAID SHE LOVED ME,
EVEN THOUGH I THOUGHT SHE'D MIGHT.
I'VE GOT SOME MONEY IN THE BANK,
SHE SAID THAT THAT WAS TIGHT.
NEVER THOUGHT SHE WAS MY FRIEND,
AND SHE TAUGHT ME THAT NIGHT.

SHE SAID SHE'S GROWING UP FAST,
SHE'S LEAVING HERE NOW.
STOLE A WALLET FROM CHED,
SEX WILL SELL SOMEHOW.
TREAT YOURSELF RIGHT,
I'LL GIVE YOU THE KEY TO THIS TOWN.
ALTHOUGH, MY MONEY IS IN THE BANK,
I WANNA LOVE HER SOMEHOW...

SHE'S GOT ME RUNNING FOR MY LIFE,
I HAVE BEEN HERE EVERYNIGHT.
NEVER SAID SHE LOVED ME,
EVEN THOUGH I THOUGHT SHE'D MIGHT.
I'VE GOT SOME MONEY IN THE BANK,
SHE SAID THAT THAT WAS TIGHT.
NEVER THOUGHT SHE WAS MY FRIEND,
AND SHE TAUGHT ME THAT NIGHT.
Track Name: THE KING I'LL BE
I WOULD RUN AWAY WITH YOU IF I COULD,
I WOULD SAVE UP ALL MY BREAD,
SO WE COULD LIVE LIKE A KING.

I WOULD TAKE A SHOT A FOR YOU IN THE DARK,
I WOULD BE THE ROBIN HOOD FOR A START,
TO LIVE LIKE THEY DO.

I WOULD TAKE A DRINK IF IT'LL MAKE ME FINE.
I WOULD MAKE A TRIP FOR WATER AND WINE.

I WOULD GET MY SHIT IN LINE IF I COULD,
I WOULD LEAVE THIS SCHOOL BEHIND,
TO LIVE LIKE A KING.

I WOULD NOT HURT YOUR FEELINGS EVEN IF I TRIED,
IF THAT DON'T MAKE IT BETTER WELL I TRIED,
LET'S LIVE LIKE THEY DO.

I WOULD TAKE A DRINK IF IT'LL MAKE ME FINE.
I WOULD MAKE A TRIP FOR WATER AND WINE.

WITH A BOOT AGAINST MY HEAD,
I KNOW NOTHING BETTER THAN THIS...
Track Name: I LOVE HER & I LOVE YOU TOO
SHE'S A LAZY MOMMA,
AND SHE LAYS ALL DAY WITH THE BOOK AT HER SIDE.
SHE'S TRIPPING ON JESUS,
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO HIDE FROM YOU.

SHE'S NOT LIKE THOSE OTHER GIRLS,
I LOVE HER & I LOVE YOU TOO.

SHE'S A BROKEN BABY,
SHE'S A BROKEN BABY FROM A BROKEN HOME.
SHE'S DRIVING ME CRAZY,
SHE LIKES CHILLING OUT IN XTC,
YOU KNOW.

SHE'S NOT LIKE THOSE OTHER GIRLS,
I LOVE HER & I LOVE YOU TOO...
Track Name: YOU TAKE MY MONEY
I AM MY OLD MAN,
BECAUSE I LOVE THE WAY,
YOU TREAT ME,
BECAUSE YOU KNOW I'LL STAY.

AND I OWN MY OWN WORLD,
ON A STOLEN PASS,
YOU'LL LEAVE ME,
BECAUSE I BROKE YOUR GLASS.

I LOVE MY MOMMY.

BUT I DON'T LIKE THE WAY,
YOU TAKE MY MONEY.
I JUST DON'T KNOW,
IF YOU'VE GOT ANY SOUL.
YOU TAKE MY MONEY,
JUST LIKE YOU TOOK ME THAT DAY,
I LOVE MY MONEY,
I JUST DON'T SAY.

OOH.
Track Name: SHE MIGHT NOT ALWAYS
SHE MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE MY GIRL,
BUT SHE'S ALWAYS MEANT THE WORLD.
SHE MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE MY GIRL,
BUT SHE'S ALWAYS MEANT THE WORLD.

TO ONE,
WHO IN YOUR HEART YOU DON'T KNOW,
WILL BREAK YOUR FEELINGS SO GO,
AWAY FROM SHARING FROM US ALL...

SHE MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE MY GIRL,
BUT SHE'S ALWAYS MEANT THE WORLD.
SHE MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE MY GIRL,
BUT SHE'S ALWAYS MEANT THE WORLD.

TO ONE,
WHO IN YOUR HEART YOU DON'T KNOW,
WILL BREAK YOUR HABITS SO GO,
AHEAD AND HIDE FROM US ALL...

SHE MIGHT NOT ALWAYS MEAN THE WORLD,
BUT SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN MY GIRL...
Track Name: IF SHE WAS THE TRAFFIC, I WOULD NEVER GET LOST
IF SHE WAS THE TRAFFIC,
I WOULD NEVER GET LOST.
YOU'RE DRIVING THE MATH WORK,
BUT BABY THAT'S JUST HER CAUSE.

IF SHE WAS THE TRAFFIC,
I WOULD NEVER GET LOST.

YOU'RE PUSHING THE TASK WORK,
AND BABY THAT'S SOMETHING,
YOU'VE BEEN MUMMBLING,
JUMBLING, AROUND,
WHEN YOU COME DOWN, COUNTDOWN,
TRIPPING OF THE CLOWN, A WAVE JUST FALLING OFF A WELL.
Track Name: CHAMPION (THE UNFINISHED SONG)
SHE WAS A CHAMPION AND SHE PLAYED BY HER OWN RULES.
SHE HAD A WHEATIES BOX, AND THE OTHER GIRLS THEY ALL LOOKED A FOOL.

NOW SHE HANGS HER HEAD IN DEFEAT,
SHE DON'T PLAY AT NO MAN'S FEET.

SHE WAS A CHAMPION AND SHE PLAYED BY HER OWN RULES.
SHE HAD THE WHEATIES BOX, AND THE OTHER GIRLS LOOKED A FOOL.

NOW SHE HANGS HER HEAD IN THE STREET,
SHE WANTS TO TELL THAT MAN HIS DEFEAT.

SHE WOULDN'T DO THAT, DO THAT, TO YOU.
SHE WOULDN'T DO THAT, DO THAT, TO YOU.
SHE WOULDN'T DO THAT, DO THAT, TO YOU.
AND NOW SHE HANGS HER HEAD IN DEFEAT,

SHE BEAT ALL THE GUYS ON HER STREET.
BUT SHE CAN'T BEAT THAT.
Track Name: SHE'S GOING MY WAY
SHE'S BEEN RUNNING HALF HER LIFE,
I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND.
WHY PEOPLE TALK SO LOUD AT NIGHT,
I JUST NEED A HELPING HAND.

SHE'S GOING MY WAY.
SHE'S GOING MY WAY, MY WAY...

SHE'S BEEN LYING HALF HER LIFE,
YOU AND ME DON'T UNDERSTAND.
WHY PEOPLE TELL ME EVERY NIGHT,
I JUST NEED A HELPING HAND FROM SOMEONE.

SHE'S GOING MY WAY.
SHE'S GOING MY WAY, MY WAY...

OH, OH, OH...

SHE'S GOING MY WAY.
MY WAY, MY WAY...
