The Road Is Calling 

Chorus
The road is calling out to me
Highway one, so much to see
Seeing sights and different faces
Winding roads and open spaces
The road is calling out to me
From St. John to Port Hardy

Maple syrup and hockey teams
City living near country scenes
Great lakes and National parks
Province and Territory landmarks

The road is calling out to me
Highway one, so much to see
Seeing sights and different faces
Winding roads and open spaces
The road is calling out to me
From St. John to Port Hardy

You Never Know

Singing down the street
Friends dancing to the beat
Having fun on the way home
Party night to celebrate
Everyone's feeling great
Last one is dancing all alone

Who you'll find
You never know, you never know
Find a surprise

Walking in the dark
Quiet stillness in the park
Take the way that's well known
Silence broken, a dog barks
Senses say, be on guard
Out of range for the phone

Running On Empty 

Verse 1 (male voice rap)
Pushing limits, trying to get by
Like so many others, working through the night
4am is really tough, no more coffee breaks
Hope there's no mistakes
So tired...Running on Empty

Chorus (female voice sung)
Baby, thinking of you
Watching while you sleep, feeling it too
Working nights, I work days
Pass each other on our way
I'm feeling blue
Running on empty

Verse 2 (male voice rap)
Dragging home, I try to sleep
Woken up to noise on the street
My minds in a haze, messed up, don't know the date

Doesn't Matter aka Missing You Blues 

 Intro
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter
Doesn't matter what I do
Today I'm feeling blue
Today I'm missing you
Chorus
When I think of you
Plan fun things we can do
Helps pass the time each day
When you are...so far away
Verse1
Doesn't matter what the words are
When they come from your hear
Doesn't matter that they feel strong
I still feel how far we're apart
Verse 2
Doesn't matter that I'm lonely
When there's people all around
You know you are my one and only
When will you be back in town
Chorus
