Lyrics

I realize, I let you down too many times

You said goodbye

Now it's so hard for me to face another day

Life just isn't the same

Oh, I've worn my heart on my sleeve

And it's bleeding You might be something I need

Oh, I'm pleading Why can't you just try?

Give me a reason to smile

Used to be, I'd wave hello to everybody on the street

Now I just turn my head and gaze the other way

The sun has disappeared These clouds are here to stay

Life just isn't the same

I've worn my heart on my sleeve

And it's bleeding

You might be something I need

Oh, I'm pleading Why can't you just try?

Give me a reason to smile

Since you went away Life just isn't the same

I've worn my heart on my sleeve And it's bleeding

You might be something I need

Oh, I'm pleading Why can't you just try?

Oh, why can't you just try? Oh, why can't you just try?

Give me a reason to smile

Lyrics

So baby tell me, how'd we let this fire go out?

We're watching TV, at opposite ends of the couch.

We let our passion decline

A few degrees at a time


Chorus:

There's a cold wind blowing, a chill in my spine

Trees dropping leaves in the middle of July

If we ignore it come tomorrow this love will be lost

To The Killing Frost


The heat is busted, and I don't think that you even care

The mercury's falling, and I can see my breath in the air

We're freezing from the inside

I don't know if our love will survive...


Chorus


So baby save your words,

I don't wanna fight

We need a lot less talking 

and more farenheit

6 am. the alarm clock rings

can't figure out how to turn it off

another day, another list of things

when's it ever going to stop?

it seems like everything's so complicated

what happened to the good O'l day's

Liz Taylor in black and white

first kiss on a summer night

waking up to watch the sun rise

from our front porch swing

sunday picnics in the park

skipping stones and counting stars

cherishing the 

these are the simple things

Lyrics

 

Don't have to get-away

to some exotic place

I'm just as happy staying Home with you...

A joyride in the car

Or sleeping 'neath the stars

Wherever you are I'll be there too

I don't care where we go..

The Cayman Islands or Idaho

As long as you're right here next to me

I'm where I wanna be

It always breaks my heart

whenever we're apart

And if you're near or far I'm missing you

I don't care where we go..

The Cayman Islands or Idaho

As long as you're right here next to me

I'm where I wanna be

Lyrics

 

 

It's Friday night. She's working a double

He approaches the bar. Guitar in hand

Orders Captain & Coke... Slips her a note

He says "Hey there gorgeous...

I'd love it if you could….

Start a tab for the band"

As they're setting up, he walks by to mingle

Gets another drink... she can't help but smile

Five minutes to Ten... he tunes up, and plugs in

The spotlight's on. And the entire crowd goes....

wild

He's got a "brown eyed girl" in every town

Praying for the day he'll settle down

Another tortured soul.... Infatuation grows…

She can't let him go…. Gotta face the facts…

She's in love... with "Mr. Rock N Roll"

In the ladies room they gossip about him

And they make their way back to the stage

He sings a cover tune... Examines the room

They all join in… It's her favorite song…

"Turn the Page"

They lock eyes, he's making her nervous

So she turns her head.. has to look away

Heart leaps through her chest... she loosens her vest

She can barely breathe

Now he's staring at her...

Legs

He'll change a single word, in every verse

So he can say he wrote it, just for her

She knows that she can never really have him

But he belongs to her when they're alone

She can only borrow

Cause he'll be gone tomorrow

And he'll take her heart with him... when he goes..

And her frustration grows

She can't let him go, gotta face the facts

She's in love, she's in love... she's in love

I don't know how to make things right

When to give up, and when to fight

I'm just living, with the hope I might

Find some peace of mind

I made my share of huge mistakes

Fell so hard I thought that I would break

But dwelling on the past will only make For wasted time

So far it ain't been easy

But my will is growing strong

You've always tried to keep me

Where you think I belong

You can't drag me down, oh no

Won't be pushed around, no more

I'll pull myself up off the floor

I'm stronger than You ever knew so tell me..

Is that the best you can do?

I'm looking forward to the day

When I can stand tall & be me again

Sure seems like this will never end

But I'm getting by

I see how you manipulate

You push my buttons & you get your way

But i'm telling you, that little game's Not gonna work this time.

So far it ain't been easy But my will is growing strong

You've always tried to keep me Where you think I belong

I've been knocked down Too many times to count

SometimesI feel like I can never win.

I won't lay here and play dead

I'd rather take another blow to the chin.

Lyrics

 

 

You meet him at the club He's perfection with an attitude

Woos you with his knowledge And quotes from Maya Angelou

Now you're at his place All he wants to do is talk about him.

Yes, I can admit, the guy is Hollywood material

A body like an angel, one could argue he's ethereal

But what is with the manicures, the waxing & the baby soft skin?

You tell me you're in love with a pretty boy....

He stole your heart & made you weak in the knees....

But I could never be with a pretty boy....

Can't date a guy who's more high maintenance than me

You probably think I'm jealous, he's got better hair than I do

And twice as many spa & facial products in his bathroom.

Maybe I am wrong, but this phenomenon, I'll never understand.

And don't you think it's odd, his favorite movie is "Love Actually"?

I swear he wears mascara but he claims they're like that naturally.

Keeps his modeling portfolio and head shots In a pile by the bed

Does he think he's the cute one in a boy band?

God forbid he has some stubble or a farmer's tan.

As for me, I like a rugged, blue collar man

With a 5 o'clock shadow Who is good with his hands

Tissues in her pocket

And weepy blood-shot eyes

Her daughter's face in a locket

Reminds her it'll be alright

A Scarlett letter branded like a tattoo

She's moving on There's nothing left to lose

She's gonna run She's gonna fly

And let the hurt remind her she's alive

And even when she's crying inside

She'll hike up her skirt And flash that pretty smile

Cause even in the darkest of times

She's gonna shine

She's got a dream And she's waited all her life

Caught in between What is wrong and what is right

There's fire in those angel eyes

A restless heart. A constant drive

Not going back, what's done is done

Never meant to hurt no one

They don't know what she's been through

So here she stands… She's got nothing to prove

You can't afford me honey

I don't care 'bout Ralph Lauren

it ain't about the money Or the presents that you send

What I need's a man who wants to spend All his time w/ me

So, you can't afford me,

You can't afford me, honey.

You're looking at me, like you don't even have to try

Think I'm just a girl, that you can buy

But that don't work for me I need somethin, you can't provide

You're too busy w/ expensive toys And counting your dimes.

All the money in this whole wide world won't change my point of view

It takes more to satisfy this girl

Deep down, you know it's true

You're thinkin I'm crazy What I'm saying's just a lie

We don't have to be rich To live the good life

Sometimes I crave those things

It's all stuff, that I don't need

I'd much rather spend my precious time With a good man, who loves me.

And All the money in the whole wide world won't change my point of view

It takes more to satisfy this girl

Deep down you know it's true

Here I am, Just goin' about my day

When thoughts of you rush in, and carry me away

Try to keep these untamed feelings at bay

But the tide is rolling in, and I'm wading anyway

It's so crazy what you do to me

I don't buy that there are other fish in the sea

All i know is you keep me smilin

feels so good it's like a dream,

My heart leaps when you walk by and Yes, I do believe

that you just gotta be The only one for me..

only one for me

There you are, with my heart in your hands

Maybe I'm naive, maybe I don't understand

But, I can't stop myself from feeling this way

You reel me in again and again

By your side I gotta stay

It's so crazy what you do to me

I don't buy that there are other fish in the sea

Lyrics

 

 

I've been having writers block for way too long..

It seems my life is just too good to write a country song.

Lord, if you can hear me, can you change the situation?

I need a scandal, & a broken heart To bring me inspiration

You know that I don't ask you for a lot of things.

And a sliver of some tragedy Would mean the world to me

The sorta pain that really stings, Something I can feel.

That's the only chance I got To land this record deal.  

So, just kill my dog & have a jilted lover smash my truck?

Do you even care? Now, it ain't fair. I should be running out of luck.

If I get hammered?

have a one night stander?  

Start a brawl down at the bar?

Will it get me on radio, so I can be a star?

See, I don't wanna take my fate Into my own hands.

But I'm pretty sure you're sayin That you got other plans

Lord, if you can hear me & my prayer of desperation?

I need some drama if I'm ever gonna Make it on an FM station

I've been told a million times Gotta write about what you know

And perfect, boring, unassuming lives...

Don't make it on the radio...

No no no..

So, just kill my dog & have a jilted lover smash my truck?

Do you even care? Now, it ain't fair I should be running out of luck.

If I get plastered & lower my standards For the low-life at the bar?

Will he get me on radio, so I can be a star?

What else can i say?

I really like the way we play

t makes me feel like I am ten again

And when I'm with you

It doesn't matter what we do

Just as long as I'm with my best friend

The gleam in your eyes, & the grin on your face

The times when you pout, cause you can't get your way

It's all the silly things you do & say

And even when you're 92, I'll always see...

the kid in you

And when i'm feeling down

I'll always have my Charlie Brown.

To make me laugh with a goofy joke or two

I just can't believe

What your love has done to me

Obviously, my love has done the same to you

Maybe we are Peter Pan & Wendy

Holding hands & flying 'cross the sea

When all is said & done

They'll know that we had fun, just dreaming..
