Track Name: When You Got Nothin'
Verse 1

I see you standin’ there

With your back to me like you don’t care
You got things, fancy clothes

But with all that shit ya still want more
Lemme take off your things

Lemme see straight to that human being
‘Cause what ya have is inside

Don’t you ever ask yourself

Chorus 1

What if there’s a time when you got nothin’, do you hide against the wall?

Or do you have somethin’? Underneath it all
When you got nothin’, don’t you feel so small?
When you got nothin’, you see through it all

Verse 2

I’ve been lost; oh I’ve been down

But somehow I kept my feet on the ground
‘Cause I’ve been strong, I’ve been fine

I’ve seen truths and lies too many times
But I get up, oh I keep goin’

I stay strong, and I keep lovin’

And you have things, and you are fine
Don’t you every ask yourself

Chorus 2

What if there’s a time when you got nothin’, do you hide against the wall?

Or do you do somethin’? With everything you’ve got
‘Cause if you got somethin’, sometimes you feel so strong
But when you got nothin’, you see through it all

When you got nothin’, do you hide against the wall?

Or do you have somethin’? Underneath it all

When you got nothin’, don’t you feel so small?

When you got nothin’, you see through it all

When you got nothin’, you see through it all

Bridge

Nothin’?
Somethin’?
Nothin’?
Nothin’? x5

Final Chorus

Do you hide against the wall?

Or do you have somethin’? Underneath it all
When you got nothin’, don’t you feel so small?
When you got nothin’, you see through it all
When you got nothin’, you see through it all

Outro

When you got nothin’, do you hide against the wall?
Or do you have somethin’, underneath it all?
Track Name: Ain't Got You
Verse 1

I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
I gotta basket full’a lemons, but I ain’t got nothin’
A plane takes me wherever I go
I get a champagne bottle in my hotel room
But I ain’t got you
I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
But I’m pretty sure that when I left you I had nothin’
Don’t know where I had to go
Yeah, I guess I always thought that I would come back soon
Still ain’t got you

Prechorus

I treated your love like the gambler I am
I bet it all on nothin’, hopin’ ta win
You’re my desire, baby
You are the only thing true

Chorus (half time)

But I ain’t got you
No, I ain’t got you

Verse 2

I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
I gotta million little people always runnin’ around me
No peace wherever I go, everybody says I hope to see you soon
But I never see you
I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
These people always tell me that I need to get past it
It just takes time, telling me they know what I am going through
But they never lost you

Prechorus

I treated your love like the gambler I am
I bet all on nothin’, hopin’ ta win
You’re my desire, baby
You are the only thing true

Chorus (half time)

But I ain’t got you
No, I ain’t got you

Outro

I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
I gotta basket full of lemons, but I ain’t got nothin’
Track Name: Bleed On the Saddle
Verse 1

Been stuck on my love life lately
Been feelin’ so crazy
If feelings flow like water
Water falls every day here
Been checkin’ my watch, and
I’m feelin’ like maybe
I think I want ya
But I can’t find you lately

Prechorus

Ooohh, you been bringin’ my whole world down
I’ve been thinkin’ of you
In my mind it goes ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
The whole day through
You’ll be on my mind, ohh, time will haunt you
I want you

Chorus

Ya bleed on the saddle
And I know what you’re fightin’ for
Ya bleed on the saddle
You’re everything I wanted and more
(Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle, [the saddle], woah)
More (Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle, woah)

Verse 2

Been stuck on my love life lately
Was hopin’ you’d save me
And I know you’re cautious
But I am praying
Been checkin’ my watch, and
I’ve been waiting
There ain’t no stoppin’
My heart from cavin’

Prechorus

Ooohh, you been bringin’ my whole world down
I’ve been thinkin’ of you
In my mind it goes ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
The whole day through
You’ve be on my mind, ohh, time will haunt you
I want you

Chorus

Ya bleed on the saddle
And I know what you’re fightin’ for
Ya bleed on the saddle
You’re everything I wanted and more
(Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle, the saddle)
More (Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle)
Track Name: Dreamin' of Love (feat. Garrett Eaton)
Hook

Ya got me here dreamin’ of love
You’re all that I’ve been thinkin’ of
Oh, if it grows stronger
I won’t last much longer
Ya got me here dreamin’ of love
You’re all that I can think
If it grows stronger
I won’t last much longer

Rap

Bow down, lean back
You don’t seem to notice
Give a little, get a little back on the track
Your love, now Taylor, I’ll hold it
I’ma take you and go with it
Fix it and risk it until I wish I had it sooner ‘cause you know that I been
missin’ it
My mind is racin’
‘Cause the taste of your lips on mine was crazy
And it may be a wish, but I wish that ya did your man and call me, baby
You know you’re all I’m thinkin’
But I can’t blame you for breakin’ me down so much it touches enough to
drive me crazy
Just sayin’

Hook

Ya got me here dreamin’ of love (mhm)
You’re all that I’ve been thinkin’ of
Oh, if it grows stronger
I won’t last much longer
Ya got me here dreamin’ of love
You’re all that I can think
If it grows stronger
I won’t last much longer

Bridge

In my car, and when I walk
You are all I’m thinkin’ of
It’s nothin’, it’s nothin’, it’s nothin’
I keep tellin’ myself, but it’s
It’s never gonna stop
And now every other love
Is nothin’, is nothin’, is nothin’
Since I met you

Hook

Ya got me here dreamin’ of love
You’re all that I’ve been thinkin’ of
Oh, if it grows stronger
I won’t last much longer
Ya got me here dreamin’ of love
You’re all that I can think
If it grows stronger
I won’t last much longer

Outro

Ya got me here dreamin’ of love
You’re all that I’ve been thinkin’ of (if it grows stronger)
