Audio Commentary:
Young And In Love
Words and Music By: N.Dumwoody/Infinity

Got twenty-five bucks in her pocket
Got his picture in a heart-shaped locket
Tells him she loves him
She believes she does

They talk every waking minute
Knowing that they should begin it
Tells her that he loves her
He believes he does

Takes the first flight down to see him
Excitement is so overwhelming
They know their love is growing
They believe they do

They were so young and free
With no responsibilities
After all these years
Through the laughter and the tears
We were young and in love

Now there’s wrinkles on our face
Still nothing’s changed our pace
We didn’t know what we were doing
We were young and in love

We were young and free
With no responsibilities
After all these years
Through the laughter and the tears
We were young and in love

We were young and in love

Daddy's A Loved Man
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

Daddy was never home
He was out working over-time
Putting together cars
Coming down the assembly line

He worked long days and nights
With hardly any rest
But he made sure
We had nothing but the best

Momma needed daddy
To be home
She waited for daddy’s call
Over the telephone

He worked long days and nights
With hardly any rest
But he made sure
We had nothing but the best

He did his best
Without any plan
His love was soft as sand
Oh daddy…you’re a loved man

When daddy got home
It was a happy time
But when the lights went down
You could hear him cry

He could hardly pay for our food
Or enough to survive
But still he tried to keep us all right

Momma said son
It’s hard for your daddy
Someday you’ll be a man
Then you’ll understand


Those long days and nights
With hardly any rest
Always make sure
You give them nothing but the best

She's Leaving Home
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

She’s walking around the room
In her favorite blue-jeans
Talking about when she lived in Dallas
But now she's going to New-Orleans

She concocts a smile
For she knows
That it's only going to be awhile
Before she's on her own

Her daddy said
She was too young to marry him
And she believes that her new life
Will just start again

She's leaving home (leaving good memories)
In his mind (he doesn't know she's leaving him behind)
They met when they were just teens
Now she's decided to pursue her dreams

She's leaving home
She's leaving home

She was only 17 when he asked her to be his wife
He gave her stability and love, the perfect kind of life
But her inner desires and the growing arguments at home
Would always end in both of them sleeping alone

Her daddy said
She was too young to marry him
And she believes that her new life
Will just start again

She's leaving home (leaving good memories)
In his mind (he doesn't know she's leaving him behind)
They met when they were just teens
Now she's decided to pursue her dreams

She's leaving home

She packs up her bags
Then throws them in the truck
As she waves goodbye
Her folks wish her good luck

She's leaving home


Lonesome Fool
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

He get's lonesome
He gets blue
You'd never know
For he plays it cool

Unfortunately his heart is cruel
He'll remain a lonesome fool

Lonesome fool
There’s never anybody good enough for you
Lonesome fool
It's hard to admit but you know it's the truth

He's never been in love before
He's gotten close
But he just shuts the door

Unfortunately his heart is cruel
He'll remain a lonesome fool

Last night on the dance floor
You got that look
She was in the mood
Like an open book

But once again you blew your chance
You should have said yes when she asked you to dance

Lonesome fool
There’s never anybody good enough for you
Lonesome fool
It's hard to admit but you know it's the truth

Lonesome fool
Man your such a fool

He get's lonesome
He gets blue
You'd never know
For he plays it cool

Unfortunately his heart is cruel
He'll remain a lonesome fool
Lonesome fool

Inbetween The Lines
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

Another long Monday
It's near sunrise
I’m waking up tired again
Need to open my eyes

I drove all night
Was on the phone with a friend
They help me to stay on the road
And get me back home again..Yea

Time to get back in my rig
Grab a cup of coffee
Get in another swig
Punch it in the GPS where I’m going

Hey honey it's me
I'm on the telephone
I know you've missed me
I'm just about home
I can't wait to see you and those kids of ours
I'll be back home in a couple of hours..Yea

Time to get back in my rig
Grab a cup of coffee
Get in another swig
Punch it in the GPS where I’m going

I need to try and keep myself awake
I need to get back home, whatever it takes
And be on time
Tired of living in between the lines

I’m tired of living in between the lines
I’m tired of living in between the lines
I’m tired of living in between the lines

Goodbye Mary
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

Goodbye Mary
I’m off again
I know you need more
But we can only be friends
I could never give my heart to you

Now please understand…

Goodbye Denise
I’m off again
I know you need more
But we can only be friends
I could never give my heart to you

Now please understand…

I remember way back when
You and I became friends
I said I could only stay for awhile
Till the morning comes again
Goodbye Mary

I found out I was never cut out
For that kind of life being a family man
The road kept calling me again
Just like an old friend

It was sad, the way it all just had to end

I left my wife and three children behind
Sometimes at night
Their memories haunt my mind
Of their cries when I had to leave

They didn’t understand

Goodbye Mary
I’m off again
I know you need more
But we can only be friends
I could never give my heart to you

Now please understand…
Singing Owl
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

Some nights I really can
Hear him sing again
As he flies around

From tree to tree
He sings his melodies
Then he flies away

Into the night

Singing owl, please sing
You sing about every wonderful thing

Last night I heard
Not a single word
I thought he was gone

I was waiting around
To hear his nightly sound
I wished I was wrong

The singing owl couldn’t be found

Singing owl, please sing
You sing about every wonderful thing

The night was quiet
Not a Hoo around
I was becoming sad

But just then I heard
That crazy bird
Land right in front of my window
And I heard him sing

ADD ON
Singing owl…Sing out…Singing owl…Sing it loud
Singing owl…Sing out...Singing owl…Sing it proud

Singing owl, please sing
You sing about every wonderful thing

Singing owl
Please come around any time you please
So tonight I dream about the joy you bring
So sing it right out loud

Sing it right out loud
Singing owl…Ahh…Singing owl


Grandma's Stories
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

I love grandma's stories
They were the best around
Before every story she'd tell
She'd have us sit down

Right in front of the oven
Where her tasty cookies would bake
With our hungry tummies
We would patiently wait

Then she’d begin her stories
As we sat on her knee
Eating soft baked cookies
As we sailed off to sea

In all her stories
The good guys would always win

I loved grandma's stories
From front to end

All my grandma's stories
I knew all along had a special meaning
They taught us the difference between right and wrong

My grandma helped me
When times were good and times were bad
She was the best friend
You could ever have

My grandma told those stories
Until she was 93
Now it’s me and gramps
And all the grandchildren on our knee

I loved grandma's stories
From front to end
I just wish she was here to tell them again
My grandma, she was my best friend

Same Winds
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

All my life
It’s been the same old story
Too much time feeling alone

No trust in myself or anyone around me
Wish that I would have known

That all along you really cared
Even then when I became scared

We used to travel in the same wind
We used to travel in the same wind

And we both know that this feels right
So let love you for the rest of your life

I once lost someone before you
Clearly wasn’t meant to be
My heart broke into a million pieces
Now just a bad memory

That all along you really cared
Even then when I became scared

We used to travel in the same wind
We used to travel in the same wind

And we both know that this feels right
So let love you for the rest of your life

Baby…All my life
I’ve waited for you to say
I love you…

We used to travel in the same wind
We used to travel in the same wind

And we both know that this feels right
So let love you for the rest of your life

I Am Without You
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

Sometimes love can be like a poison
There’s no cure it just burns deep
Changes your world still you let it sweep you
Off of your two feet

Then when it ends
You try to be friends
But inside you needed more

I felt this once too many times
Here I go again
I must be blind
And still paying for it all

After all this time
I feared I’d lose my mind
I knew I wouldn’t be the same
I still cannot believe that I am without you

There must be some higher power
That gets me through everyday
I never thought it would be hard
I knew I’d be ok

Tried to be friends
Did the best till the end
Deep inside we needed more

I felt this once too many times
Here I go again
I must be blind
And still paying for it all

After all this time
I feared I’d lose my mind
I knew I wouldn’t be the same
I still cannot believe that I am without you

You said you’d turn our love back around
Make it what it used to be
You said that you belonged to me
Together we fit so perfectly

So why am I sitting I felt this once too many times
Here I go again
I must be blind
And still paying for it all

After all this time


Stories On Strings
Words and Music By: Jim Infinity

Once again
Here we are my old friend
In our room

Once again
Here we are my old friend
In the dark

We’ve had so many stories to tell each other
Through the years

Always alone
Just the two of us
Drowning out our tears

We held each other so tight
To get us through the night

Of our stories on strings
