Only Love 07:00
[Verse 1] Forget about tonight Forgive away tomorrow Speak of only love Despite the deepest sorrow Forget about the words Forgive the reckless actions Speak of only love The queen of all distractions [Refrain] But Iʼm the king of everything Take this cup away from me Let it pass before I leave Take this cup away from me My God [Verse 2] Forget about the lies Forgive those who abuse you Speak of only love You know they're confused too Forget about your world Forgive human desires Speak of only love And I will take you higher [Refrain] Cause Iʼm the king of everything Know this cup is all for me All shall pass eventually You are the love the world has seen My Son © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

Be Yourself 02:22
[Intro] I ainʼt seen what youʼve seen I ainʼt been where you have been I never claim to, I never want to I never will be just like you [Verse 1] Canʼt you see that Iʼll never be the epitome of this American Dream? But who called it a dream anyway? Weʼre always searching for something else and something more But did you know? [Chorus] If you wanna be somebody (yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself (go off and be yourself) If you wanna be somebody (yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself [Verse 2] From the time that we are small Weʼre taught that being perfect is a possibility Spelling bees, little league, talent shows and show and tell Lord, we all wanna be the richest man in this town [Chorus] If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself) If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself Get down with your bad self [Outro] If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself) If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself) If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself) If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Quit trying to be someone else © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

Last Train 04:17
[Verse 1] I remember being free I remember everything He wanted us all the same So evil plans were made [Verse 2] All too weak to fight So they treat us all alike But none of us look the same On this God forsaken train [Verse 3] Thereʼs sadness everywhere And strangeness in the air Now all of us look the same With different numbers for our names [Outro] Someone has to die for you to stay alive Someone has to die for you to stay alive © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

[Verse 1] We are not lovers But making love is easy Boy/Girl, believe me Oh you know that I could never be your girl/man But I could stay out every night and dance under the moon with you But youʼve heard it all, Iʼm nothing to put your faith in Before you hold my hand, consider letting go [Chorus] Cause I am nothing but a place to hide And you are nothing but a hell of a time So if you want to take a ride with me Then I will gladly show you what it means to be free [Verse 2] Sing another melody Youʼll never get the best of me I think, I think Iʼm drowning in your sea Composed of only bittersweet, the finest whiskey in the east Will grace my tongue before I sleep, but I know that youʼll be leaving Donʼt think that youʼre the first, you better know that you wonʼt be the last One day weʼll all look back and laugh [Chorus] Cause I am nothing but a place to hide And you are nothing but a hell of a time So if you want to spend the night with me Then, I will gladly share your sweet company I am nothing but a place to hide And you are nothing but a hell of a time So if you want to spend your life with me Then I will gladly sing your sweet harmony © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

Play 03:29
[Verse 1] Look at this place around us Look at all the people Watching and waiting And looking for something that’s theirs for the taking Something to make sense out of this crazy world that we’re living in Out of this ultimatum that we’re dealing with Just look at the morning paper or the evening news We're all used and abused And we're forced to choose Should we give ‘em hell or give ‘em shoes? Or drop a few more bombs away Or outlaw guns and don't let kids pray Camo or the Rainbow What about the shade of grey? [Chorus] We ain't gotta choose sides today We ain't gotta choose sides tomorrow Let the kids go out and play We're gonna be ourselves today [Verse 2] Walking down the street Never felt so much like a ghost town Everybody's walking around Smiles upside down, staring at the ground But every now and then You know/when we look up at the sky We all wonder why Is there anyone up there? Why can't he hear us cry? [Chorus] We ain't gonna find God today We ain't gonna find God tomorrow Let the kids go out and play We're gonna be ourselves today [Bridge] If you wanna fight all the good in life you can And if you wanna believe that your hate will get us anywhere Then you can stand beside yourself all alone at the end of the road And for the rest of us, we'll do fine on our own Yeah, we'll do fine on our own [Chorus] We're gonna be ourselves today We're gonna be ourselves tomorrow Let the kids go out and play [Outro] We're gonna be ourselves today (we’re gonna be ourselves, we’re gonna be ourselves) We ain't gotta choose sides today We ain't gonna find God tomorrow (no, no, no) But everything’s gonna be okay We’re gonna be ourselves today © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

Dream Song 06:54
[Verse 1] As you sleep, everything is at peace You start to dream and anything becomes possible You lie in your bed and visions coming swirling through your little head Youʼre all alone for now [Refrain] But all I can think of is the worst I canʼt keep these thoughts away I know the darkness is coming soon I hope these dreams are not here to stay [Chorus] One more night One more night One more night, I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go Let me go now Let me go now Let me go now [Verse 2] As you know, this is not your fault But these dark dreams, they will steal it all The lie to you never gives you any comfort I tell you my friend, this I know But all I can think of is the worst [Refrain] I canʼt keep these thoughts away I know the darkness is coming soon I hope these dreams are not here to stay [Chorus] One more night One more night One more night I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go Let me go now Let me go now Let me go now [Refrain] All I can think of is the worst I canʼt keep these thoughts away I know the sunrise will come up soon And that these dreams are not here to stay [Chorus] One more night One more night One more night I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go One more night One more night One more night [Outro] I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go Let me go now Let me go now Let me go now © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

[Verse 1] He spends his days screaming at the sky Haunted by a lover, he canʼt seem to sleep at night Finding fault in everything, shouting up at God Looking for a reason, looking for something [Verse 2] He roams the streets at night in search of another her Too many faces passing, his vision starts to blur Falling to the floor, shouting up at God What am I hear for? Is there really something more? [Chorus] Will we ever know? (Will we ever find?) Is there a reason? (One weʼve all been looking for) Is there an answer? (Thereʼs gotta be something more) Will we ever know? [Verse 3] She spends her days being everybodyʼs favorite Walking the fine line and never losing sight of it Praying for everyone, always looking up to God Looking for a reason, looking for something [Verse 4] She always faked a smile and pretended to be content But she always wanted more than the simple life she was given As she left the driveway, she looked right up at God Saying, what am I here for? [Chorus] Is there really something more? Will we ever know? (Will we ever find?) Is there a reason? (One weʼve all been looking for) Is there an answer? (Thereʼs gotta be something more) [Outro] Will we ever know? Will we ever know? Will we ever find? Is there a reason? One weʼve all been looking for Is there an answer? Thereʼs gotta be something more Will we ever know? Will we ever know? Will we ever know? Will we ever find? Is there a reason? One weʼve all been looking for Is there an answer? Thereʼs gotta be something more Will we ever know? © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

[Verse 1] I do not like the way That you throw your life away But who am I, am I, am I, am I To be giving you advice I donʼt know why I even try But who am I, am I, am I, am I [Chorus] Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride You gonna take it in [Verse 2] And you think you are the queen But you donʼt know everything (You think you do, you think you do) But it’s a lie, a lie, a lie, a lie And you think you got it made And that pretty face will never fade away (fade away) But it’s a lie, a lie, a lie, a lie [Chorus] Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride You gonna take it in Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride You gonna take it in © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

[Verse 1] You could whisper Almost anything And it would immediately steal my attention Bite your bottom lip Act like you donʼt know what youʼre doing Iʼm just boy and you know just how to get me going Is this responsible, I think not, baby This is spontaneous Maybe even bit contagious I am addicted to every little thing that you do [Chorus] So come little closer dear Iʼve got something I have to tell you I need you I want you I gotta have you (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) I need you I want you I gotta have you [Verse 2] I could/can almost Taste those lips From across this crowded room But Iʼd rather have them close to mine And here you come now You start to move somehow You got that fire in you smile Now your hand is in my pocket Close the blinds, Iʼm all yours Slam the door, just make sure you lock it I'm addicted to every little thing that you do [Chorus] So come a little closer dear Iʼve got something I have to tell you I need you I want you I gotta have you (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) I need you I want you I gotta have you I need you like the summer trees need the breeze [Bridge] Youʼre blowing through my mind and I need you all the time And I need you just like Coltrane needed Chambers You got the time but girl youʼre making me lose my mind And I need you like the autumn streams need the leaves Youʼre colorful, you keep me warm/youʼre so beautiful [Outro] And you got it/you keep me going on I need you way more than I can stand Iʼm falling over (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) I need you I want you I gotta have you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) I need you I want you I gotta have you I need you I want you I gotta have you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) I need you I want you I gotta have you © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement

Blindman 04:23
[Verse 1] I have seen the seven seas The blindman said to me I have held the treasures of a thousand kings I was there before Someone decided to bite the apple And Iʼll be right here Preparing for the final battle [Chorus] Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here [Verse 3] That is alI, my precious boy Youʼve been taught that I only destroy But if you take little walk with me Iʼll show you things beyond your wildest dreams I shook his hand and I felt regret A fiery feeling I wonʼt forget Did I just make a deal with the devil? [Chorus] Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here [Verse 3] On our little walk through the night He revealed the mysteries of life But he began walking and speaking in circles And then I woke up [Chorus] Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here © ℗ 2016 Colten Settle © ℗ 2016 The Settlement
