Andrew Hart One word - Heart. It would be worth the money on it's own, but the rest is just as good! Favorite track: Heart.

Highway 04:25
Volkswagon Bus rolling down the road Rock and roll dream never growing old I never wanna stagnate I gotta find my own way home You're never gonna know if you never go So go! I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way We're always on the run I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way (yeah!) We're always on the run, run We're always on the run I work a 9 to 5 and it kills my soul I don't wanna die with nothing to show I never wanna stagnate I gotta find my own way home You're never gonna know if you never go I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way We're always on the run I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way (yeah!) We're always on the run, run We're always on the run And I don't believe you. You led me blindly in the dark. I don't trust you. I'm letting go to defend my heart. I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way We're always on the run I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way We're always on the run I'll be on the highway Slowly making my way (yeah!) We're always on the run, run We're always on the run

Heart 03:29
I fell down from the mountain On all of my mistakes I washed the blood from my hands You washed blood from my face Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? I know I could've been should've been more I know I could've been should've been more You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart Stand up dust off my jeans now Look at the mess I've made Start now to keep my commitments Start now to take my place Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? I know I could've been should've been more I know I could've been should've been more You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday? You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart You said I know you've got I know you, you've got heart

Dad's Song 05:22
Driving, hear my father's voice callin' from the side seat sayin' slow better cool your engines pal or you're gonna drive us off the road from Cascade Lake to Madison Park i was the match and you were the spark for me left home at just 19 and Mamma left after me and with Mumford on the radio it takes me back to our longest road thanks for your hands and the love they've shown they've always shown they've always shown shown me love from docking bays to boy-to-boy days sock wars up the spiral staircase, no when I fell down hard you got me up and set me on the road you always tried to teach me to work but all i remember is being a jerk to you well i'm sorry for the wrinkles on your head Sorry for the pain I caused you and with Mumford on the radio it takes me back to our longest road thanks for your hands and the love they've shown they've always shown they've always shown I hear a whisper calling in the dark brothers and sisters this is all we are i want my childrens' hands to feel those big hands that help me sit still and listen to papa's stories i know they will i know they will and with weezer on the radio 14 showing you the first songs I wrote thanks for not laughing or making jokes I love you so , I love you so I love you so
