Nicholas Cooke Only picking Slow Down because it's the first song I heard. This is simply a solid alternative, reggae inspired rock album with great vocals. Favorite track: Slow Down.

Track Name: Soul Thief
Now you’re deceiving smile hides behind
The silver lining that lines your eyes
I know all your tricks, and I’ve heard all your lies
But I’ll still be outside…singing….


Could you give me somewhere to lay my head down
Give me something I cant live without
Like a little piece of heaven in an ordinary world
Stealing my soul girl….


Smile on now girl
This is you, this is your world
I promise I’d never tell you a lie
But you wouldn’t give me a try


Now this is all your fault
For putting up these here prison walls
And I promised I’d never take you for a ride
But you wouldn’t give me a try…
Track Name: Away
Looks like I'm at it again
And I can't remember how this started
It's been three years since I've seen your face
Not something I could easily erase
It's raining again this morning
My mind shares in the feeling
Probably won't do much with today
My soul's asleep anyway

Can't say that I'm surprised
I'll do this every time
Give me just enough rope and I will drive you away

I know this may reach you too late
And I know you owe nothing to me
I would take back so many things if I could
Put you right next to me
But at the risk of making the same mistake again
I think I'm gonna go back to sleep instead
And let you drive away

Got to get out from this weight I am under
Cancel the plans that I have for the summer
Drive all night stand outside your place
Maybe one more time I could see your face

Can't say I didn't try
Gonna change it up this time
Give you just enough rope
Let you drive me away
Track Name: Not as Far
I will stand atop everything that is mine
All that's around, beneath and inside
I'll show courage when I feel weak
I will listen much more than I speak
I will accept the good
Show more patience than I usually would
Sure as we'll someday grow old
I will fight for the ground that I hold

No one said it would be easy
With everyday its a little less hard
Stay pointed to where I am going
With everyday its not as far

Every chance I get, I'll try to express
Give thanks for how much I've been blessed
Sure to take pride in all I do
Be someone my people can bare witness to
I'm not trying to preach or impose
I'm a work in progress and so it goes
And sure as the next day will come
I'll work til my work is done

I will shake this hurried notion
That the best is yet to come
I will stumble here and there
The straight and narrow, easier said than done.
Track Name: Maybe I'm Sorry
Here we go for the hundredth time
You've got your reasons and I've got mine
Let's not talk this over
I know all the words that you're gonna say
"why you always gotta act this way?"
Let's just call this over

You think that it's all my fault
What does that matter now?

Excuse me, but its time I go
But first I want to let you know
That baby I'm sorry
Don't you think its plain to see, you don't want to be with me at all
Maybe you're sorry
This time there'll be no next time
to say 'baby I'm sorry'

Here we go just one last time
And I know that you'll be just fine
Let's not talk this over
You're gonna be who you're gonna be
And find someone a little less like me
Good luck with another
'Cuz I know this can't be my fault
We were in this together

Excuse me, but it's time I go
But first I want to let you know
That, baby I'm sorry
Don't you think its plain to see
That you don't want to be with me at all
Maybe you're sorry

This time there'll be no next time
This time there is no next time
to say 'baby, I'm sorry'
Track Name: Back Again
You can lead me
Down to the water
But you can't make me swim
You can lead me
To the middle of nowhere
But be sure, I'll find my way back again
Back again

Ask me, any little question
I'll try to give you the answers you need
Tell me, anything little you want to
And trust me, to never tell anyone
No, I won't tell anyone

I'm tellin' you now please
Hope you understand
You can take my heart but
You got to leave my hand

Don't blame me
Like some kinda fool
Don't think you're gonna break me
Like some old wooden stool
'Cuz I'm solid like a stone
So don't try to roll me
Just ask me
And I will go anywhere

I'm tellin' you now please
Hope you understand
You can take my heart but
You got to leave my hand
Track Name: Slow Down
A little bit further, we're almost there
Hope you get your second wind
There may not be an ounce of sleep tonight
Wouldn't sleeping be a waste of time
'Cuz it's better to just be here and we're taking it in
May there never be another moment wasted on the trouble I'm in

Slow down just a bit there
You'll miss the best part
Don't know what day it is nor do I care
Before the day comes around you have to slow down

And if I close my eyes could I freeze myself in time
And stay here forever
You know that I would do anything you tell me to
If I could feel this way forever
I'm better when you are here, better within
Take the strength you have when I am near
And when the world seems too much
Remember to...

Slow down just a bit there
You might miss the best part
Don't know what day it is nor do I care
Before the day come around you have to slow down
We don't listen cuz we're gonna do it our way

I hold you, you hold me and we'll be okay
Gonna stay close to every breath that you take
Everything is okay, together we'll be okay

A little bit further, we're almost there
This is your second wind
Hope you never forget a thing about tonight
Until you see me again
Although it's better when you are here and we're taking it in
Keep myself busy and wait it out
Until we do this all over again
Track Name: Gone
Won't be long before the sky gives way
And the world comes alive again
I been awake all night,
Praying I don't mess this up and then
I brush if off,
Cant think too much
I'm outta here by noon today.
So I get my stuff,
I don't bring too much,
I wont need it anyway.

Here goes nothing,
I'll leave my keys by the door.
I'm settled on something,
Worth leaving for.
Just my reflection,
On an empty floor.
And then once more, I'm gone.

You called me but a few months later
Said 'man its not like it used to be"
People are comin' up to you
Askin' what did ever come of me
Well my friend,
This is not the end.
And I'm sorry that you feel that way.
Some time from now,
We will meet again.
But you knew I wouldn't stay.

(CHORUS)

Wont be long before the sky gives way
And the world comes alive again.
Cant remember feeling this at home,
At home since God's knows when.
Well my friend,
Its like I said,
I'm sorry that you feel that way.
Some time from now,
We'll meet again.
But this is where I'm gonna stay.
Track Name: I Believe
I believe I could be
Better than I used to be
Until then I just wont stop
Eventually you will see
I don't give up so easily

Easy does it now
Times come I take a vow
To the end, I will hold true
Provided, I've been here before
And lied 'cuz this same oath I swore
But man, I'm just a man, just like you.
Don't you see I've recognized the error of my ways
I've apologized for everything

Now I've taken advantage and I've taken for granted
But some truths I still work to hide
Thought I know the evidence
Will show I've left my finger prints
When ignorance and innocence collide
Don't you see I've recognized the error of my ways
Its too late to apologize for everything but...

I believe I can be, better than I used to be
Until then I just wont stop
Eventually you will see,
I won't give up so easily
I believe.

You see I carry the weight upon my back on my mistakes
Sometimes I struggle just to learn to let 'em go
To know whats done is done, but I can change what is to come
If I believe in me enough to make it so
I know that the road to redemption is never an easy one
I know I will make it, just as long as...

Its hard to know if our control is gone
'Cuz I've been watching everything going on
I've been just staring at the paper thinking all this is wrong
It's hard to tell if its too late for a change
I've been around enough to know what I'm sayin'
I've seen it go from black to white
And still its always the same

Maybe we can change...
Track Name: Help
Help, I need someone to pull me down
Help, I'm hanging from a chance
Help, but no please don't help
This time I wanna drop myself
I'll crash, I'll burn out
If I have to.

Cuz when the sun is setting on
Everything you counted on
What do you do now?
Reality creepin' through
Rising up inside of you
Realize that you can help yourself.

Help, I need someone to pull me through
Help, I'm stuck between the old and nothing new
Help, no please don't help
I'm doing fine by myself
I will crash and burn out
If I have to

Cuz when the sun is setting on
Everything you counted on
What do you do now?
Reality creepin' through
Rising up inside of you
Realize that you can help yourself
Track Name: Found Out
I admit that
For a bit it got the best of me
But now its just funny more than anything
You won for a minute
But that minute has passed

It's so easy
Can you see the smile on my face?
I don't remember what I liked in the first place
I can't help but bring it back to light

You didn't think this would happen
Hope its everything that you imagined
People like you, they just never learn...

Thought it wouldn't come around
Thought I'd never find out
'Bout all the things you wish nobody knew about
Thought it wouldn't come around
Thought I'd never find out
No matter what you come to be
You'll know that you were found out

I'll beat back the urges that go through my head
Hold back when I think about what you said
I won't give you that satisfaction
I'll kick back, focus on the other things I gotta do
When you're gone, everyone else will too
Feels so good to bring it back to light

Bet you didn't think this would happen
Hope its everything that you imagined
People like you, they just never learn

Thought it wouldn't come around
Thought I'd never find out
'Bout all the things you wish nobody knew about
Thought it wouldn't come around
Thought I'd never find out
No matter what you come to be
You'll know that you were found out

I could just let it go
Pretend like I didn't know
But that would be no fun at all for me
Now you see...
Track Name: Love Move a Mountain
Faith
But I'm not climbing that mountain
Truth
But I'm working around it
Trust
But I'm not thinkin' about it
Love
I been livin' without it

You gimme faith that lovin' you
Is all that I ever had to do
Trust that when I'm not right there beside you
You gave me truth that I could not find
Showed me the world in a different light
Opened my heart, and I wrap my love around you

Faith
Now I'm climbin' that mountain
Truth
I'm not speakin' without it
Trust
Start building around it
Love
Now I've finally found it

You gimme faith that lovin' you
Is all that I ever had to do
Trust that when I'm not right there beside you
You gave me truth that I could not find
Showed me the world in a different light
Opened my heart, and I wrap my love around you
Track Name: Easier Way
A declaration
A once unified nation
Why's it always gotta be us against them?

Desperation
Down at the police station
We got kids killin' cops
And cops killin' kids right back
So I say...

There's got to be an easier way
Tell me there's a better way

Perscription
Another high-class recreation
Most of these people ain't seen a doctor in years
Reputation
Of my generation
The people with the power don't think we know
But we know...

There's got to be an easier way
Tell me there's a better way

If we all start runnin'
And we just do nothin'
There'll never be an easier way

Got to be an easier way
Tell me there's a better way
Track Name: Higher Love
What if our lives had never crossed?
What if our worlds came between us?
Imagine the love that would have been lost
If fate had not seen us.

Do you believe, that ultimately
Higher Love will find us wherever?
That you and me, can together be
Higher Love forever.

Ours is a special situation
One that left us no other option
We're solid down to the foundation
Never let anything stop us

Oh I believe, that ultimately
Higher Love that brought us together.
That you and me, can together be
Higher Love forever.

Now that our lives, they have crossed
Feels like the world is against us
Through the troubled times I trust
That fate will guide us.
Track Name: Higher Love 2.0
What if our lives had never crossed?
What if our worlds came between us?
Imagine the love that would have been lost
If fate had not seen us.

Do you believe, that ultimately
Higher Love will find us wherever?
That you and me, can together be
Higher Love forever.

Ours is a special situation
One that left us no other option
We're solid down to the foundation
Never let anything stop us

Oh I believe, that ultimately
Higher Love that brought us together.
That you and me, can together be
Higher Love forever.

Now that our lives, they have crossed
Feels like the world is against us
Through the troubled times I trust
That fate will guide us.
