Track Name: Cinnamon
Cinnamon - Ryan Brookhouse

Time in the desert makes me smile
Cause thinking of you is all I think I need to survive
Lost in Tenderness
She’s gunna make a mess for me

When she’s in the kitchen cookin’ it up
With sugar and spice and that cinnamon dust
I think I’m crazy
For her I’m a fool
‘cause it tastes so good I could cry.

Cinnamon, cinnamon.

I was workin’ in the city all night long
And I was comin’ home from the city lights
And she was standing there
And I smelt cinnamon rise into the air
And I was lost in tenderness
She’s gunna make a mess for me

When she’s in the kitchen cookin’ it up
With sugar and spice and that cinnamon dust
I think she’s crazy to cook for a fool
But it tastes so good I could cry

Cinnamon, Cinnamon, cinnamon
Track Name: Electric Girl
Electric Girl - Ryan Brookhouse

Every time we touch
There’s a little spark
We don’t get too complicated
Electric Girl
Electric Heart

Darlin’ don’t you know
I’ve seen it all before
All in my mind
I was lyin’ on the floor
And I need somebody to touch
Yeah you give me a spark

Electric Girl
Electric Girl

I saw her on an open page
A self portrait touched up with software
I couldn’t believe my own mind
My Electri Girl with her Electric eyes

Darlin don’t you know
Your community’s all in your head
Darlin can’t you see that you need somebody to touch
Yeah you give me a spark

Electric Girl
Electric Girl

Darlin’ don’t you know
That your security is all in my hands
Baby can’t you see
I’ll show you somebody
A machine with all of the parts

Electric Girl

Track Name: Dangerous Houses
Dangerous Houses - Ryan Brookhouse

There’s a street on the other side of town
Don’t you go there boy, don’t you hang around
Those dangerous houses down by the shippin’ yard
And if you’re riding past, don’t you catch their eye
Just come on home boy, just pass them on by
Those dangerous houses down by the shippin’ yard

Dangerous Houses, Dangerous houses
They’re gunna fall on a young man’s pride

Well I’ve got something to say to you boy
Yeah I’ve got a story to tell
I did my time in them houses down there and it’s a portal, leads straight down to hell.
Did I tell you that there’s little honey
When you’re stingin’ from all of them bees
Did I tell you that there’s nothin’ funny
Down that dirt road of mystery.

Dangerous houses, Dangerous houses
They’re gunna fall on a young man’s pride
Dangerous Houses, Dangerous houses
Don’t you fall like your daddy’s kind
Baby don’t you fall

Ohhh, awww
Yeah I did my time, little boy don’t you roam too far.

Yeah cause your father was a driftin’ man
He’d drift from town to town and that’s how he ran
Til he put his dirty boots under your mamma’s bed
And he smelled like hand rolled cigarettes, smoke and fire and whisky breath
And child it is in that place that you were bred.

Down in them Dangerous houses, Dangerous houses
Don’t you fall like your daddy’s kind.
Track Name: Pieces On
Pieces On - Ryan Brookhouse

I took a ride on a lost highway
When I woke I was miles away
I found myself blinded by hate
So I taught myself to considerate

You see my girlfriend took all o my things and
She threw em on the front lawn for all of my sins
My underwear was flyin’ around
And I saw my life in pieces on the ground

Pieces On, Pieces On
This old song
Pieces On.

I’ve been to heaven’s gate
And I’ve tasted crumbs and cake
When you see me at your door
You know I’ll be beggin for more
You know I’ll be beggin’
For them

For them Pieces on, Pieces on
This Old song
Reminds me of them pieces on.

When I consider my broken heart will mend in time
The night is sweet
As the day is long
And i’ll rest my head with a sweet old song
Pieces On
Pieces On
Track Name: Ticket to the Sky
Ticket to the sky - Ryan Brookhouse

The day that she arrived she got down to the station
And she didn’t know which direction to go
She said Sir Station Master you didn’t see me comin’
but I’d like to buy a ticket for to ride

To the sky
To the sky
I’d like to buy a ticket to the sky
And he said my
My oh my
To the sky is where I want to ride

I’ve got a desperate intention
To fade right into blue
There aint no awkward intervention
Could ever place a hold on you

Sir please wont you listen
Listen to a country girl gone wrong
Well I could ride the trains, the planes, the busses and the taxi rides
The neon signs will all show me the way

To the sky
To the sky
I’d like to buy a ticket to the sky
To the sky
Where we’ll get high
To the sky is where I want to ride

I gotta desperate intention
And I’m burnin’ up inside
You see I wanna be somebody
And I’ve been waiting all my life
To get to the sky
Track Name: Rain in the City
Rain in the City - Ryan Brookhouse

She called me on a telephone
Broken down in a strange location
Just to see how far she could ride
Just to see how far that old car could take her
Just to see the open sky
Now it’s rainin’ on this city of mine

Rain in the City
Rainin’ on the ground
Ease my pain and pity
Darlin ‘cause she’s nowhere to be found

Now it’s 3am and I’m waitin’ on that train
I didn’t have a destination
Just to see how far I could ride
I didn’t have an explanation
Just to see the open sky
Now it’s rainin’ on this city of mine

Rain in the City
Rainin on the ground
Ease my pain and pity
Just gimme the rain on the city
And a pretty girl

Baby don’t worry
No matter where you are
Just don’t be sorry
Just don’t be sorry

Down in the city
It’s rainin’ on the ground
Yeah I would trade in all my pity
For a little sunshine
And a little Kiss
Track Name: Bound by Love
Bound By Love - Ryan Brookhouse

Runnin’ on the smell of an oily rag
Fifteen hundred miles on a tank of gas
She done all the things that you never wanted to

Pickin’ up speed like a hurricane
Walkin’ on glass in a world of shame
She done all the things that you shouldn’t have to do

She listened to the songs on the radio
But none of them sounded right
‘Cause none of them sound the way she felt tonight

She was cutting back
She was wearin’ black
Playin’ Johnny Cash
On an 8 track in her Cadilac

Bound by love
And only one direction
Drivin’ wild
And no one could deny
That she was bound by love
And the feelin’ of a notion
Of drivin’ wild
You could see it in her eyes

Snatchin’ up a dream from a garbage can
Runnin for her life from the reaper man
Livin by the law of hope and novocaine
Now she’s runnin on down, down to paradise
Livin her life like a rollin’ dice
Packin’ all the baggage that she could never afford

Bound by love
And only one direction
Bound by love
No one could deny
Steal my heart
With the feelin’ of a notion
The notion of perfection
Track Name: Guns
Guns - Ryan Brookhouse

She likes situations that bother me
Sometimes they bother me
She likes to fly so high
Sometimes it bothers me
Like the big blue sky

Life is a gun
Loaded with bullets
Shot to the sun

Time is a girl
Without hesitation
To take what she’s won

We are all like loaded guns
With loaded hearts and loaded tongues
Yet peace on earth is what you’ll find
Just give it away
You won’t be so blind

They like conversations that bother me
Sometimes they bother me
They like to shoot the stars
Sometimes it bothers me
Like the way they do

Life is a gun
Loaded with bullets
Shot to the sun

Time is a girl
Without hesitation
To show the whole world

That we are all like loaded guns
With loaded hearts and loaded tongues
Let peace on earth be what you find
Just give it away
You won’t be so blind
Just give it away
Who knows what you will find
Just give it away, Just give it away, give it away
Give it away
