Bill Goodman This is some great music. Easy to chill out to and highly enjoyable. At times it can be a little dark and gritty like a Johnny Cash or Lindi Ortega song. "Vampires" reminds me a little bit of the intro to True Detective season 1 only slightly more upbeat.

Track Name: Elevator
I took the Elevator, but my heart fell down the stairs
I raced for the finish line, you were already there

I said "Where you going?"
You said "Where you been?"
I said "I've been running, just to see you again."

You looked in my eyes, you brushed aside my hair
Just for a minute or two, I thought you actually cared
But then you looked at the horizon, and vanished into thin air

I took the Elevator, but my heart fell down the stairs
I raced for the finish line, but you were already there
Track Name: Vampire
He had blood on his lips, on his finger tips
He had the devil in his eyes
His skin was white, like he'd had a fright
It was cold and he asked if he could stay the night

I let him in through the doorway,
And he hung up his long black cloak
In the mirror he cast no reflection
I thought maybe , the mirrors just broke

I guess I knew that he was a vampire
All the signs, they said beware
I guess I knew that he was a vampire
But that night I didn't care

He swept me up the stairs, he laid me on the sheets
Gave me a cold black stare, and he bared his sharp white teeth
I said do you want some wine, he said no, you'll do just fine
And by the way, your immortal soul is mine

I guess I knew that he was a vampire
All the signs, they said beware
I guess I knew that he was a vampire
But that night I didn't care

Now I've got blood on my lips, on my finger tips,
And I've got the devil in my eyes
Track Name: Straight & Narrow
Gonna stay on the straight and narrow
Gonna stay on the righteous path
Gonna stay away from loves arrow
Gonna take my life back

I've been a sinner and you've been a saint
I'm bad news and baby you ain't
Well I hope, you got, no more complaints
Cause I'm stayin, on the straight and narrow

And all I need is a song
All I need is a song
Won't you help me see right from wrong?
Won't you take me back where I belong?
Come on, Come on, Sing along

I've been a sinner and you've been a saint
I'm bad news and baby you ain't
Well I hope, you got, no more complaints
Cause I'm stayin, on the straight and narrow

Gonna stay on the straight and narrow
Gonna stay on the righteous path
Gonna stay away from loves arrows
Gonna take my life back
Take my life back
Take My life back
Take my life back
Track Name: Neon Motel Room
I got a neon motel room just for you
And you can bring whoever you want to
There's nothing in particular we gotta do
And the sign flashes in between red and blue

Just keep on driving down interstate three
Right on past the blockade they set up for me
I could use some lemonade and some company
I've only got about twenty-seven hours to be free

The sign keeps on flashin'
With the fireflies in the air
I'm not even guilty
But the Highway police, they don't care

When you get here just knock on door number two
I've nice little quaint highway view
And you know I'll always take good care of you
And the sign flashes in between red and blue

The sign keeps on flashin'
With the fireflies in the air
I'm not even guilty
But the Highway police they don't care
Track Name: C Blues
The winds keep on howlin'
Telling me, that your gone
The winds keep on howlin
But I don't listen to their song

When you left me
I kept my eyes shut tight
Oh yeah you left me, that's right

The winds keep on howlin'
Since you left me
They cry every single night
Oh that's right
Track Name: Parlor Lights
Turn on your parlor lights
I want to get weak
Turn on your parlor lights
Don't wanna play hide and seek

Well I've been walking a thousand years
With these chains on my feet
Turn on your parlor lights
And set me free

Turn off the road ahead
It's filled with night
Turn off the open road
There's an end in sight

I've been walking a thousand years
With these chains on my feet
So turn on these pretty lights
And set me free

I want to take off these chains that bind me
They're getting old and covered with rust
I want to see a light in the darkness
Shining down through the air filled with dust

Turn on your parlor lights
I want to get weak
Turn on your parlor lights
Don't wanna play hide and seek

Well I've been walking a thousand years
With these chains on my feet
Turn on your parlor lights
And set me free
Turn on those pretty lights
And set me free
Track Name: Can't Leave
My suitcase is in the corner
All my clothes are packed in tight
Got my ticket in my hand, shoes on my feet
But I just can't leave you tonight

I got the can't leave my baby
No I can't leave my baby
Can't leave my baby blues
Can't go, even if I want to
Even if I choose

I know I've been mistreated
It ain't fair and it ain't right
But I got you sleepin in my bed
Swimmin in my head
And I just can't leave you tonight

I've been pacing this room for hours
I know I should be on that flight
But how can I go
When you're so deep down in my soul
How can I leave you tonight

I got the can't leave my baby
No I can't leave my baby
Can't leave my baby blues
Can't go, even if I want to
Even if I choose
Track Name: Sidewinder
Sidewinder, by the side of the road
You ain't gonna wind up with me
Sidewinder, getting ready to go
So take your snake eyes off me

When you shed your skin
We'll see the shape you're in
Your mistakes, everyone will see
Then you'll hiss and shake, like a rattle snake
Not the little lamb you pretend to be

Sidewinder I know your name
Sidewinder I know your game
Sidewinder I know your claim
That you are never to blame

When you shed your skin
We'll see the shape you're in
Your mistakes, everyone will see
Then you'll hiss and shake, like a rattle snake
Not the little lamb you pretend to be

Sidewinder, by the side of the road
You ain't gonna wind up with me
Sidewinder, I'm getting ready to go
So take your snake eyes off me
Track Name: Waltz
You keep waltzing across my mind
Like an old country song
That plays all the time
Even when you are gone
And when I turn out the lights
It still plays on and on

One two three waltz to me
One two three waltz from me
Yes you're gone, and that's fine
You're still waltzing across my mind

Step to the left, step to the right
Spin me around, there's no one in sight
Draw back the blinds, turn off the light

You're still waltzing across my mind
Like an old country song
One two three
One two three
Waltz to me, waltz from me
Yes you're gone and that's fine
You're still waltzing across my mind

You're still waltzing across my mind
Like an old country song
One two three, waltz to me
One two three, waltz from me
Yes you're gone and that's fine
You're still waltzing across my mind
