IN YOUR KISS

i get a chill when you touch my hair | i feel the urge oh baby when you touch me there | look into your eyes | i see love | i feel so safe when you hold my hand | you make me feel more than my body can withstand | everything about ya tells my heart | you’re the one | just like the sunrise | on the open bay | everything about ya takes my breath away | i could never love another lover | quite like this | sure as the stars shine | when the day is done | i shine for you | i know you’re the one | i can taste forever | in your kiss | i get so high when you’re by my side | i know that one day you’ll | make me your bride | countin down to the day i see you | on one knee | i feel so low when you’re not around | you say my name and i gotta say i love the sound | you got a way with me | you’re the one | just like the sunrise | on the open bay | everything about ya takes my breath away | i could never love another lover | quite like this | sure as the stars shine | when the day is done | i shine for you | i know you’re the one | i can taste forever | in your kiss

TEXAS

i told ya not to call me | anymore | i didn’t hear from you so | i headed out the door | i took my baggage and i headed west | i thought i’d clear my head | but when i crossed that texas line | i got drunk instead | don’t look back now | there’s nothing more to see | if i break down in texas | please don’t look for me | i’m runnin low on gasoline and | that cup of dreams is empty | you weren’t there then i don’t | expect ya to be now | i’ll get along without you | somehow | i broke down and called you | today | ya seemed surprised to hear that i was | miles away | i told ya everything ya shoulda done | it was just no use | see i was lonesome for you | i needed some excuse | to look back now | there’s nothing more to see | if i break down in texas | please don’t look for me | i’m runnin low on gasoline and | that cup of dreams is empty | you weren’t there then i don’t | expect ya to be now | i’ll get along without you | somehow | there’s an open sky in texas | here’s a world i’d never see | i’ll just fade into the desert | don’t look for me | i told ya not to call me anymore | if i break down in texas | please don’t look for me | i’m runnin low on gasoline and | that cup of dreams is empty | you weren’t there then i don’t | expect ya to be now | i’ll get along without you | somehow

I GOT YOU

i don’t need a fancy house in the mountains or a | black credit card | i got wealth and i got riches and i | don’t even own my car | i got you | and honey you got me | i don’t need a silly five course dinner as a | posh restaurant | i can live without the dress in the window | what more could i want | i got you | and honey you got me | too sure to look around | too high to ever come down | love’s everything i ever hoped it’d be | too right to let you go | too yes to ever say no | i got you | and honey you got me | i don’t need a great big ol’ diamond on a | crazy platinum ring | no royal wedding, no four star suite honey | that just aint my thing | i got you | and honey you got me | too sure to look around | too high to ever come down | love’s everything i ever hoped it’d be | too right to let you go | too yes to ever say no | i got you | and honey you got me | we don’t need a lot honey | just a little bit | a little bit goes a long, long way | we don’t need to be rich and i don’t need to be famous | we’ll be ok | i got you | and honey you got me too

SONG ABOUT NOTHIN

really nothing much to do today | really nothing i got planned | i took a walk down to the beach and i saw nothing but the sand | really no one here to talk to | nobody i should call | i grab my old guitar | hanging all alone up off the wall | i wanna feel something | i got nothing at all | i wish these strings | i wish these things | could just give me something | it aint a lot | but all i’ve got | is this song about nothing | got my car and started driving | but i aint got nowhere to go | i could cruise real fast | but i got lots of time to take it slow | i could turn on some old music | or just listen to the road | roll the windows down and let the sound drown out the radio | it’s no good to me loud | it’s no good to me low | nothings wrong | nothings right | it’s just another day | jaded night | i got nothing to gain | i got nothing to lose

LOVE SONG ON THE RADIO

i know that you’re leaving | i hope you’re not gone | the thought of living without you babe it | chills me to the bones | still i wonder darlin as you’re drive off to work | does that song come on the radio | and hit you where it hurts | baby who are you thinkin about | when you hear that love song playing on your radio | who are you dreaming about | is it me | baby is it me | all my friends are telling me | ya gotta let him go | if it’s really meant to be | both of you will know | they don’t have to listen to that song about you and me | the one we used to dance to | it brings me to my knees | i know i was wrong | i’ll take all the blame | if you’ll come back to me | and i’ll be holding on to every word | of our love song | if i wrote the song that you are listening to right now | these are the words that i will get to you somehow | baby it’s you that i’m thinking about | when i hear that love song playing on my radio | it’s you that i’m dreaming about | it’s you

BROADER HORIZONS

there was a time | there was a day | there was feeling everything was gonna be ok | there is a sadness | deep inside me | hidden away beneath my skin so that you don’t see | just because ya got a dream don’t mean | you’re gonna make it come true | now matter how hard you try | no matter what they all tell you i need | broader horizons | room to make big plans | time to smell the flowers | time to till the land | closer to the water | lots of space to roam | farther from this city | the city aint my home | there is a place | i gotta find | there is a life for me out there i’m gonna make it mine | maybe montana | or tennessee | maybe ohio holds a special place for me | just because ya got the will don’t mean | you’re gonna get what you want | now matter how hard you tried | no matter how tough you fought | broader horizons | room to make big plans | time to smell the flowers | time to till the land | closer to the water | lots of space to roam | farther from this city | the city aint my home | it’s never gonna be | i don’t wanna live like this | i swear it’s killin me | oh no … i gotta get away | i gotta leave this town | on my way i’m highway bound

AUTUMN

just wanted a share of life but i think i took too much | never stopped to realize and now i’m slowly losing touch | i’ve seen the ups and downs | i know where paths will lead | but i never seem to know quite what i need | just wanted to spread my wings but i think i flew too far | caught a glimpse of that ariel view found a place in my own heart | i didn’t take the time to see how the world around me’s changed | how the people struggle to make themselves a name | autumn you know what to do now | let those old leaves fall | autumn start a new beginning | don’t ya hear that winter call | ya know i hate to see your world so barren | can’t help that i can’t stop caring | i can see how thin your soul’s been wearing | aren’t you ready for a change | so they say that good things come to hard working people who wait | b there’s very little time ya know before it all becomes too late | so we stick to what is stable and what makes us feel secure | instead of going out and looking for something more

CRIMINAL

i don’t go to parties anymore | i don’t date your boyfriends | i sit around at home with my guitar until your work shift ends | i do the dishes and the laundry too | i don’t ask for that much from you | what you’re asking of me boy | well that’s everything | it’s criminal | criminal baby blue | more from me than what i want to give to you | criminal | i think you’re taking me for a fool | i ought to take my heart – and your jacket too | there’s a shanky bar down the road | the cost of drinking is fair | the music’s loud and the beer is cold | and your not welcome there | i tried acting like a nice girl | tried feeding your needy ways | i guess it worked for a little while | but honey – these days | got me feeling like a … there’s a shanky bar down the road | the cost of drinking is fair

RIDE ALONG

some things | you can’t change | you’re gonna have regrets | now who’s judging who and whatcha gonna do about it | and your fears | they’re gonna chase you down | you’re gonna hurt inside | ya gotta be tough | just tough enough, just tough enough to get by | train keeps rolling
down the line | i really hate to ride it alone | so if you feel ok with me by your side ride along | let’s head west | where there’s space | we could grow our own food | we could find our place | make a family | cuz nothin else is real | no nothin else is real | and when your world comes tumbling down | i’ll be your friend | i got your hand | in it to the end honey | train keeps rolling down the line | i really hate to ride it alone | so if you feel ok with me by your side ride along | ride along by my side | i’ll take care of you | comfort you | tell you everything’s alright | take my hand | i’ll be your lover | i’ll be your friend

EVER THERE

i’ve been drinking for days | guess i’m trying to wash you away | but even in my darkest moments | i still long for you babe | i long for you baby | i can’t figure me out | guess i’m just too full of doubt | i thought i could leave you honey | honey take a look at me now | look at me now | i’m broken inside | no amount of anything is ever gonna hide it | it hurts when you tell me you miss me | hurts when you tell me you care | how do i get over | you’re the only thing that’s ever there | ever there | i can’t handle your love | you always gave me too much | and anytime i tried to please you | it was never enough | never enough | i’m screaming inside | no amount of anything is ever gonna hide it | it hurts when you tell me you miss me | hurts when you tell me you care | how do i get over | you’re the only thing that’s ever there | ever there
