There are people in this country
Who work hard every day
Not for fame or fortune do they strive
But the fruits of their labor
Are worth more than their pay
And it's time a few of them were recognized.

Hello, Detroit auto workers,
Let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin',
Just to send it on down the line
Hello, Pittsburgh steel mill workers,
Let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin',
Just to send it on down the line.

This is for the one who swings the hammer,
Driving home the nail
For the one behind the counter,
Ringing up the sale
For the one who fights the fires,
The one who brings the mail
For everyone who works behind the scenes.

You can see them every morning
In the factories and the fields
In the city streets and the quiet country towns
Working together like spokes inside a wheel
They keep this country turning around.

Hello, Kansas wheat field farmer,
Let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin',
Just to send it on down the line
Hello, West Virginia coal miner,
Let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin',
Just to send it on down the line.

This is for the one who drives the big rig,
Up and down the road
For the one out in the warehouse,
Bringing in the load
For the waitress, the mechanic,
The policeman on patrol
For everyone who works behind the scenes.

With a spirit you can't replace with no machine
Hello America, let me thank you for your time...

Theres a road that I remember leading to a special place
Where the door was always open to a smiling face
Theres a picture on the mantle of a boy that looks like me
Its always the same, theres a stocking with my name

And a candle in the window, a flame against the night
Theres a candle in the window, its like Gods perfect light
It dont take a lot of money to know what riches are
Just a candle in the window

Maybe its just wishful thinking I can hear the sleigh bells ring
Almost taste the pie shes baking, its Christmas Eve

And theres a candle in the window, a flame against the night
The candle in the window, its like Gods perfect light
It dont take a lot of money to know what riches are
Just a candle in the window and Christmas in your heart

Wherever the years may take me no matter how far I go
Theres going to be a candle burning, its always nice to know
It dont take a lot of money to know what riches are
Just a candle in the window and Christmas in your heart

Can this be true? Tell me, can this be real?
How can I put into words what I feel?
My life was complete, I thought I was whole
Why do I feel like I'm losing control?
I never thought that love could feel like this
Then you changed my world with just one kiss
How can it be that right here with me
There's an angel? It's a miracle

Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep
When I look into your eyes, I know that it's true
God must have spent a little more time on you
(A little more time....I'm sure he did....yes he did, babe...)

In all of creation, all things great and small
You are the one that surpasses them all
More precious than any diamond or pearl
They broke the mold when you came in this world
And I'm trying hard to figure out...Just how I ever did without
The warmth of your smile, the heart of a child
That's deep inside, it leaves me purified

Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep
When I look into your eyes, I know that it's true
God must have spent a little more time on you
(A little more time....I'm sure he did....yes he did, babe...)

Ive seen him plow a field of corn all day
Thats reality
His overalls are black with dirt
But his face is still full of dignity
He talks about the waether
And he can tell you when its gonna rain
Told me bout the flood of Twenty-Nine
That washed the crops away

Underneath that Alabama sky
Grandpa told me bout the things hed seen
Underneath that Alabama sky
I listened to my Grandpas memories

At times he mentions Grandma
Turn his head and wipe away a tear
Sometimes wed take her picture down
And sit and pretend that shes still here
Three girls and two boys he raised on love
And simple honesty
And when they finlly have to carry him away
Theyll take a lot of me

Underneath that Alabama sky
Grandpa told me bout the things hed seen
Underneath that Alabama sky
I listened to my Grandpas memories

Underneath that Alabama sky
My Grandpa told me bout the things hed seen
Underneath that Alabama sky
I listened to my Grandpas memories

I was walking home from school on a cold winters day
Took a shortcut through the woods and I lost my way
It was getting late and I was scared and alone
Then a kind old man took my hand and led me home
Mama couldnt see him, but he was standing there
But I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

When life dealt troubled times and had me down on my knees
Theres always been someone there to come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend just to say I understand
Aint it kind of funny at the dark end of the road
Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

They wear so many faces
Show up in the strangest places
Grace us with thier mercy
In our time of need

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

To me it's still magic when we touch
And I have never loved you so much

To me it's still magic when we touch

Clear creeks and cool mountain mornins.
Honest work out in the fields.
Cornbread in my mommas kitchen.
Daddy saying grace before the meal.
Family ties run deep in this land.
And Im never very far from what I am.

I was born country and thats what Ill always be.
Like the rivers and the woodlands wild and free.
I got a hundred years of down home running through my blood.
I was born country and this countrys what I love.

Moonlight and you hear beside me.
Crickets serenadin in the yard.
What more could two people ask for.
Laying here in love beneath the stars.
Now this is where I wanna raise my kids.
Just the way my mom and daddy did.

I was born country and thats what Ill always be.
Like the rivers and the woodlands wild and free.
I got a hundred years of down home running through my blood.
I was born country and this countrys what I love.

I was born country and thats what Ill always be.
Like the rivers and the woodlands wild and free.
I got a hundred years of down home running through my blood.
I was born country and this countrys what I love.

I was born country

Atlanta was on fire, so was she the night he left her
He left her there to bare her pain alone
Hoping to return
Burn, Georgia burn.

Roaring of the guns feel the emptiness inside her
Where once she felt the pounding of her heart
When he held her in his arms the tenderness they learned
Burn, Georgia burn.

He was a body, she was the soul
Of the love affair they couldn't control
While their world was falling down around them
They were not concerned
Burn, Georgia burn.

Winter brought the snow, and the rider down from Franklin
With news about the war had taken a toll
And he would not return
Burn, Georgia burn.

He was a body, she was the soul
Of the love affair they couldn't control
While their world was falling down around them
They were not concerned
Burn, Georgia burn.

While strolling through her mind
She stumbled on an old familier feeling
Of how he touched her many years ago
And how he made her burn
Burn, Georgia burn...

Calling, calling all angels
Oh I'm calling, calling all angels

The night was still, the moon was bright
When he saw a distant light
So he started walkin' till he found
A church outside of town
And he stumbled in and closed the door
Said why I'm here, I'm not sure
It's my baby that I'm lookin' for
Can't she see I'm down on my knees

I've been calling, calling all angels
Bring my baby back
Oh you must know where she's at
Tell me what to do
I know she's one of you
I'm down on my knees, tell her please
That I love her so

Tell me preacher, man to man
Will you do all that you can
I've done wrong, this I know
And I really hurt her so
It's a lonely world I'm livin' in
An ocean of tears I been cryin'
In this greatest hour of need
What can be done for a fool like me

Oh, I'm calling, calling all angels
Bring my baby back
Oh you must know where she's at
Yes I've been a fool
And I know that she's one of you
Now do this for me, tell her please

And if she's lonely
I'll make her understand
That these arms can carry
Both of us back to heaven again

Yes I've been a fool
And I know that she's one of you
Do this for me
Tell her please

Calling, calling all angels
Hear me calling, calling all angels
Oh I'm calling, calling all angels
Hear me calling, calling all angels
Oh I'm calling, calling all angels
Hear me calling, calling all angels
Oh I'm calling, calling all angels

The walls of my mind

Your warm gentle smile
It was all worthwhile
Each moment we knew

Cant forget about you

Breakin my mind in three quarter time makin me blue

When were in a crowd, Im sure youve noticed how
I love to look at you (you, you, you)
No, I cant deny, I get hypnotized
When I look at you (look at you, look at you)
Oh, its the kind of thing, that I cant explain
No matter how I try
Its no mystery, the whole world can see
How I feel inside (feel inside)

(Oh, oh baby)
I cant hide my heart
Its been that way right from the start
These feelings I know
Cant help but show
And I cant hide my heart

When were all alone, oh its just as strong
When I look at you
Maybe even more, behind these doors
As Im loving you (loving you)

(Oh, oh baby)
I cant hide my heart
Its been that way right from the start
These feelings I know
Cant help but show
And I cant hide my heart

Baby you never will be lonely, as long as Im alive
Youll always be my one and only, for the rest of my life
Ooooh, ooooh

(Oh, oh baby)
I cant hide my heart
Its been that way right from the start
These feelings I know
Cant help but show
And I cant hide my heart

I cant hide my heart
Its been that way right from the start
I cant hide my heart (and I cant hide my heart)
Its been that way right from the start
I cant hide my heart
I cant hide my heart

My heart fell to the floor
The night you broke the news
Said you couldnt feel it anymore
Those words that rolled off your tongue
Tore my world in two
As you turned and walked on out the door
Ive been trying to get over you
And get on with my life
But the more I do without you
The more I realize

I cant love you any less, no matter how I try
You left me with a feeling, that just wont seem to die
And its killing me knowing, Ill never hold you like before
I dont love you any less
You dont love me anymore

Well girl I hope you never feel
The way I feel tonight
Its a hopeless kind of pain
Well Im not even comin close
To gettin over you
Feels like its never gonna end
So why do I keep hangin on
And wastin my time
Wish I could let you go
But this old heart of mine

Cant love you any less, no matter how I try
You left me with a feeling, that just wont seem to die
And its killing me knowing, Ill never hold you like before
I dont love you any less
You dont love me anymore

Girl, I dont love you any less
You dont love me anymore

This town ain't big, this town ain't small.
It's a little of both they say.
Our ball club may be minor league but at least it's triple A.
We sit below the Marlboro man, above the right field wall.
We do the wave all by ourself.
Hang off, a blind man could've made that call.
ChorusWe like beer flat as can be.
We like our dogs with mustard and relish.
We got a great pitcher what's his name.
Well we can't even spell it.
We don't worry about the planet much.
We just like to see the boys hit it deep.
There's nothing like the view from the cheap seats.
The game was close, we'll call it a win.
Go off to toast the boys again.
That local band is back in town.
They got a kinda minor league sound.
They're not that bad, they're not that good.
But all in all it's understood.
We wanna dance, they wanna play.
We wouldn't have it any other way.
ChorusCheap seatsNow the majors called up oh what's his name.
And one more buildin' rises come.
And suddenly we're all grown up.
And this old town not quite so small.
But I'll always miss the middle size town.
In the middle of the middle-west.
With no name pitchers and local bands,and mustard
and relish and all the rest.
ChorusCheap seats

Christmas In Dixie
By now in New York City.
Theres snow on the ground.
And out in California.
The sunshines falling down.
And maybe down in Memphis, Gracelands all in lights.
And in Atlanta, Georgia, theres peace on earth tonight.

Christmas in Dixie, its snowing in the pines.
Merry Christmas from Dixie to everyone tonight.

Its windy in Chicago.
The kids are out of school.
Theres magic in Motown.
The citys on the move.
In Jackson, Mississippi to Charlotte, Caroline.
And all across the Nation, its a peaceful Christmas time.

Christmas in Dixie, its snowing in the pines.
Merry Christmas from Dixie, to everyone tonight.
And from Fort Payne, Alabama..Merry Christmas tonight.

All my friends are asking me where I plan to spend the holidays
People seem to celebrate the season in so many different ways
Some go where the weathers freezing cold while others like it warm
I dont care about the weather just whether I spend Christmas in your arms

We could drive up to the mountains, build a fire and watch it snow
We could sail down to the islands where the gentle breezes blow
Id be happy in the city, Id be happy on the farm
I dont care where I spend Christmas as long as I spend Christmas in your arms

It was only last December I had no Christmas spirit in my heart
My world lay cold and shattered in the ashes of a dream that fell apart
But now youre here beside me, no greater gift is wrapped beneath my tree
And the arms you wrap around me and the precious gift of love you give to me

We could drive up to the mountains, build a fire and watch it snow
We could sail down to the islands where the gentle breezes blow
Id be happy in the city, Id be happy on the farm
I dont care where I spend Christmas as long as I spend Christmas in your arms

I dont care where I spend Christmas as long as I spend Christmas in your arms

Its that time of year when the whole world is heart to heart
You can feel love all around you, you can see it everywhere

Christmas is love, its in the songs were singing
Christmas is love, its families comin home
Christmas is love, its on the childrens faces
Christmas is love

Christmas is love, a warm and friendly feeling
Chirstmas is love, hear the church bells ring
Christmas is love, its sharing in the giving
Christmas is love

We all gather round, watch the lights dancing on the tree
The spirit of the season, you feel it in the air

Christmas is love, its in the songs were singing
Christmas is love, its families comin home
Christmas is love, its on the childrens faces

Christmas is love, a warm and friendly feeling
Christmas is love, just hear the church bells ring
Christmas is love, its sharing in the giving
Christmas is love, Christmas is love, Christmas is love

Theres a blanket of snow coverin up the old road to the house where I was raised
Through the window I see the lights on the tree and a glow from the old fireplace
Though it all looks the same so much as changed from the way it used to be

Christmas memories of happy years gone by
They come back to me and keep me warm inside
Still those Christmas memories make me cry

Now the stockings are filled; the house is still and the kids are dreamin away
Theres that old easy chair, me and Daddy sat there waitin for Santas sleigh
Now Daddys gone but we carry on cause the little ones will need...

Christmas memories of happy years gone by
They come back to me and keep me warm inside
Oh they mean so much to me cry

Just outside of Austin
I turned on my radio
Turned it in to a satellite station
She was talkin on a call-in show
She said it was over, shed made her choice
Her mind was made-up by the sound of her voice

Clear across America tonight
Clear coast-to-coast tonight
Shes long gone, shes outta here
But shes comin through loud and clear
Clear across America tonight

Sounded like he really had it coming
All the times hed done her wrong
She said, I hope hes listening
And hung-up the telephone
All of a sudden, I realized
It was me she was telling good-bye

Clear across America tonight
Clear coast-to-coast tonight
Shes long gone, shes outta here
But shes comin through loud and clear
Clear across America tonight

Hello dj, put me on the air
Give me the chance to tell her I still care
Get her back on the line, tell her Im still in love
Said, "sorry son, but youre breaking up"

Clear across America tonight
Clear coast-to-coast tonight
Shes long gone, shes outta here
But shes comin through loud and clear
Across America tonight

Across America tonight
Clear across America tonight
Clear across America tonight
Clear across America tonight

Sometimes her morning coffees way too strong
And sometimes what she says, she says all wrong
But right or wrong, shes there beside me
Like only a friend would be
And thats close enough to perfect for me

Now shes been known to wear her pants too tight
And drinking puts her out just like a light
Heaven knows shes not an angel
But shed really like to be
And thats close enough to perfect for me

She kisses me each morning, and smiles a sleepy smile
She doesnt have to say it, I can see it in her eyes
Dont you worry about my woman
Or what you think she ought to be
Shes close enough to perfect for me

Sometimes she gets down and starts to cry
But then again the lady has the right
Shes everything Ive ever wanted
Shes all Ill ever need
Shes close enough to perfect for me

She kisses me each morning, and smiles a sleepy smile
She doesnt have to say it, I can see it in her eyes
Dont you worry about my woman
Or what you think she ought to be
Shes close enough to perfect for me

The closer you get
The further I fall
I'll be over the edge now
In no time at all.
I'm fallin' faster, and faster, and faster
With no time to stall
The closer you get
The further I fall

You have me dreamin'
Is this really real?
Is there's something magic
The way that I feel in your arms
Tonight

The closer you get
The further I fall
I'll be over the edge now
In no time at all.
I'm fallin' faster, and faster, and faster
With no time to stall
The closer you get
The further I fall

Keep fallin'
Oh yeah, yeah
I'm fallin'
Mmmm Fallin'
Oh yeah, yeah, I'm fallin'
Yes, I'm fallin', I'm fallin', I'm fallin'
Yes, I'm fallin', I'm fallin', I'm fallin'
Yes, we're fallin, we're fallin', yes we're fallin'

The closer you get
The further I fall
I'll be over the edge now
In no time at all.
I'm falling faster, and faster, and faster
With no time to stall
The closer you get
The further I fall
(Fade)
The closer you get
The further I fall
I'll be over the edge now
In no time at all.
I'm falling faster, and faster, and faster
With no time to stall

I was raised in the shadows of an old cotton mill
Back when believin was the style
Small town heaven and a big-eyed boy
Made sweet music for a while
My daddy worked hard down at the factory
Nights he went to G.I. school
He didnt know nothin bout the silver spoon
But he lived by the golden rule

Summer nights he was gone me and mama stayed home
Out on the front porch swing
Wishin on the stars in the southern sky
And sometimes we used to sing

We were leaning, leaning on
The everlasting arms of love
Livin all those simple joys
This Dixie boy is made of

Got my real education from the T.V. station
And good ole boys down at the park
The say "Hey, Willie" and those rock-a-billies
Made their way into my heart

I remember the old folks sittin round talkin
On laidback Sunday afternoons
They said them young folks sure got a hard road
Oh, theyre growin up too soon

Now I know they were right, and as I sit here tonight
Out on the front porch swing
The stars are shinin in my young boys eyes
Just like they did for me

We are leaning, leaning on
The everlasting arms of love
Livin all those simple joys
This Dixie boy is made of

We are leaning, leaning on
The everlasting arms of love
Livin all those simple joys
This Dixie boy is made of

Alabama - Dixieland Delight

Just off of the beaten path
A little dot on the state road map
That's where I was born and where I'll die.
Things move at a slower pace
Nobody's in a rat race
And these days that's a special way of life.

Down Home, where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home, a mans good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know, if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up down home.

In the corner of the hardware store
Gathered round on a checkered board
Old men telling lies and crownin' kings.
Kids drivin' round the old town square
Cops roll down int he cool night air
Go and see what's shakin' at the Dairy Queen.

Down Home, where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home, a mans good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know, if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up down home.

When I was a boy I couldn't wait to leave this place
But now I wanna see my children raised.

Down Home.

Down Home.

Folks know, if there fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up.

Down Home, where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home, a mans good word and a handshake are all you need
Folks know, if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up down Home.

Down Home.
Way down home.
Down home.
Down home.
Way down home...

Down this road theres an old brick house
My mama cried the day that I moved out
And my first summer job was pumpin gas and fixin flats
But at Henry Walkers Texaco
Down this road, down this road

Down this road theres a maple tree
In a cotton field where Jenny first kissed me
And I can still remember the night she said good-bye
I stood there like a fool and watched her go
Down this road, down this road

And it goes on forever
And it goes by too fast
Itll take you anywhere you want to go
And every memory will bring you back

Down this road theres a small white church
Daddy lived his life by the preachers word
He raised me right, I could always feel his love
Even when the angels called him home
Down this road

And it goes on forever
And it goes by too fast
Itll take you anywhere you want to go
And every memory will bring you back

Down this road
Down this road
Down this road

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I ain't gonna give any more
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
'Cause part of me knows what you're thinking...
Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that I can read your mind, I can read your mind
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry 'cause I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
'Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving

Fantasy, midnight and you and me
Ecstasy, spirits running wild and free
Take me away, away.

Outside on a blanket in the moonlight
It feels right with my arms around you tight
Laying under heaven watching stars play
While me and you and mother nature drift away.

Fantasy, midnight and you and me
Ecstasy, spirits running wild and free
Take me away, away.

--- Instrumental ---

Fantasy, midnight and you and me
Ecstasy, spirits running wild and free.

Fantasy, midnight and you and me
Ecstasy, spirits running wild and free.
Take me away, away.
Take me away, away.
Take me away, away...

Wisper to me softly, breathe words upon my skin.
No ones near and listening, so please, dont say goodbye.
Just hold me close and love me, press your lips to mine.
Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm, feels so right.
Feels so right.

Lying here beside you, I hear the echos of your sighs.
Promise me youll stay with me and keep me warm tonight.
So hold me close and love me, give my heart a smile.
Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm, feels so right.
Feels so right.

Your body feels so gentle, and my passions rising high.
Youre lovin me so easy, your wish is my command.
Just hold me close and love me, tell me it wont end.
Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm, feels so right.

Feels so right.
Feels so right.

He was a stranger in a little town
She was sittin' alone in a crowd
Listening to the old jukebox playin' a song
From the moment we walked through the diner door
She felt something like never before
A feelin' so strong right from the start
It wouldn't stop - it was more than a spark

Fire on fire they were burnin' up
Over a coffee cup, under the table they touched
Fire on fire, in each others eyes they just had to try
'Cause fire on fire just won't die

It was gettin' late but they had all night
They sat there talkin' 'bout their lives
He was sellin', she uas gettin' ready to buy
That ole neon light was glowin' dim
But he could see by the way she was lookin' at him
Tonight would be different, somethin' had changed
His lonely heart was feelin' a flame

Fire on fire they were burnin' up
Over a coffee cup, under the table they touched
Fire on fire, in each others eyes they just had to try
'Cause fire on fire just won't die

She needed him, he needed her
And they both knew, without a word
There was no question, there was no doubt
There was no way they could put it out

Fire on fire they were burnin' up
Over a coffee cup, under the table they touched
Fire on fire, in each other's eyes they just had to try
'Cause fire on fire, fire on fire
Fire on fire just won't die

Fire on fire
Just won't die
Fire on fire

I'll admit I could feel it
The first time that we touched
And the look in your eyes
Said you felt as much

But I'm not a man
Who falls too easily
It's best that you know
Where you stand with me

I will give you my heart
Faithful and true
And all the love it can hold
That's all I can do
'Cause I've thought about
How long I'll love you
And it's only fair that you know
Forever's as far as I'll go

When there's age around my eyes
And gray in your hair
And it only takes a touch
To recall the love we've shared

I won't take for granted
You'll know my love is true
'Cause each night in your arms
I'll whisper to you

I will give you my heart
Faithful and true
And all the love it can hold
That's all I can do
'Cause I've thought about
How long I'll love you
And it's only fair that you know
Forever's as far as I'll go

There are people in this country who work hard every day
Not for fame or fortune do they strive
But the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay
And its time a few of them were recognized

Hello Detroit auto workers, let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin, just to send it on down the line
Hello Pittsburgh steel mill workers, let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin, just to send it on down the line

This is for the one who swings the hammer, driving home the nail
Or the one behind the counter, ringing up the sale
Or the one who fights the fires, the one who brings the mail
For everyone who works behind the scenes

You can see them every morning in the factories and the fields
In the city streets and the quiet country towns
Working together like spokes inside a wheel
They keep this country turning around

Hello Kansas wheat field farmer, let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin, just to send it on down the line
Hello West Virginia coal miner, let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin, just to send it on down the line

This is for the one who drives the big rig, up and down the road
Or the one out in the warehouse, bringing in the load
Or the waitress, the mechanic, the policeman on patrol
For everyone who works behind the scenes

With a spirit you cant replace with no machine
Hello America let me thank you for your time

Wish I had just one more chance to hold you close and say I love you.
Can't believe out romance was just beginning. Now its Through.
I'm looking for tomorrow to start a newlife on my own.
And all I see is sorrow.You're all I lived for.Now you're gone.

I can't seem to get you off my mind no matter what I do.
I'm trying to wipe you from my eyes, but the tears keep fallin' through.
The hardest thing that love has put me through is gettin' over you, gettin'
over you, over you, over you.

Life aint all that easy I can testify to that
Its been up and down and round and round to get to where Im at
If you could see how Im living in this old car I drive
Well youd probably wonder and even ponder why I even wanna stay alive

So give me one more shot Ill give it all Ive got
Let me open my eyes to a new sunrise I pray
Give me one more chance Ill learn to dance the dance
Well Im satisfied just being alive give me one more day

Well I could complain about taxes or the weather were having today
Go on and on about things that are wrong from New York to L.A.
Well thats just not my nature to sit around feeling sad
Were only here for awhile so why not smile hey living aint all that bad

So give me one more shot Ill give it all Ive got
Let me open my eyes to a new sunrise I pray
Give me one more chance Ill learn to dance the dance
Well Im satisfied just being alive give me one more day

When I look around theres lots of folks worse off than me
So I just thank the good Lord and ask him please

So give me one more shot Ill give it all Ive got
Let me open my eyes to a new sunrise I pray
Give me one more chance Ill learn to dance the dance
Well Im satisfied just being alive give me one more day

Well Im satisfied just being alive give me one more day

Give me one more shot Ill give it all Ive got
Give me one more day
Show me the way and give me one more day
Give me one more shot

Can this be true? Tell me, can this be real?
How can I put into words what I feel?
My life was complete, I thought I was whole
Why do I feel like Im losing control?
I never thought that love could feel like this
Then you changed my world with just one kiss
How can it be that right here with me
Theres an angel? Its a miracle

Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep
When I look into your eyes, I know that its true
God must have spent a little more time on you
(A little more time....Im sure he did....yes he did, babe...)

In all of creation, all things great and small
You are the one that surpasses them all
More precious than any diamond or pearl
They broke the mold when you came in this world
And Im trying hard to figure out...just how I ever did without
The warmth of your smile, the heart of a child
Thats deep inside, it leaves me purified

Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep
When I look into your eyes, I know that its true
God must have spent a little more time on you

God must have spent a little more time on you
You
On you
A little more time on you

Before I fly and wave goodbye I'll say to you
Days with you are the best years of my life
But if I don't see you anymore keep my words safely stored
And I'll be back I promise, once more.

Goodbye, goodbye, 'til I see you
Goodbye, goodbye, I'll love and I'll miss you 'til then
Remember me 'cause I care where you are and how you feel
Get in touch with me, golden your face.
I guess its been to much fun, we've shared, and we've won
Yes the best is yet to come.

Goodbye, goodbye, 'til I see you again
Goodbye, goodbye, I'll love, and I'll miss you 'til then
That one word hurts so bad you leave the best you've had
But you keep the faith and pray to return.

Goodbye, goodbye, I'll love and I'll miss you, 'til then
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...

Ive been goin around in a whirlwind not knowing which way to go
Ive been lost in a jungle of heartaches looking for what I dont know
Ive spread my wings and Ive done some things that I never meant to do
Its took me some time but Ive made up my mind Im hanging up my travelin shoes

Hangin up my travelin shoes
My runnin around is all through

Ive been riding a sea of uncertainty running away fom is all

Hangin up my travelin shoes
My runnin around is all through
Im foldin my wings up for you

Hangin up travelin shoes

Smilin faces on city streets, crowded shoppers, busy feet
And every smile just seems to say, were having some Happy Holidays

Twinklin lights on Christmas trees, kids up on Santas knew
Busy lines on telephones, sending a Merry Christmas home

Bells ringing everywhere, season spirit in the air
Up and down the avenue, holiday dreams comin true

A choir singing songs of cheer, carols we all love to hear
Rudolph with his glowin nose, lovers under mistletoe

Postman bringin Christmas cards, reindeer out in the yard
Frosty with his eyes of coal, present wrapped in pretty bows
Sidewalks full of happy eyes, flakes fallin from the sky
Boys and girls at the big parade to see St. Nick up on his sleigh

The scene is set, its beautiful, sounds of Peace, Joy and Love
From all of us wed like to say, have yourself some Happy Holidays

Hey hey baby

We didnt know that times were lean
Around our home the grass was green
It didnt seem like things were all that bad
I bet we walked a thousand miles
Choppin cotton and pushin plows
And learnin how to give it all we had

As life went on and years went by
I saw the light in daddys eyes
And felt the love in mamas hands
They kept us warm and kept us fed
Taught us how to look ahead
Now lookin back, I understand

We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leavin home was the hardest thing we ever faced

When Sunday mornings rolled around
We dressed up in hand-me-downs
Just in time, together with the church
Sometimes I think how long its been
And how it impressed me then
It was the only day my daddy wouldnt work

We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leavin home was the hardest thing we ever faced

We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leavin home was the hardest thing we ever faced

We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walkin in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leavin home was the hardest thing we ever faced

We were walkin in high cotton

A glowin fire and fallin snow, they spark a memory
Stockings hangin, mistletoe, presents beneath a tree
A happy boy wakin up to toys, lookin so surprised
And wondering how Santa knew just when I closed my eyes

Its a Homecoming Christmas, goin back to where it all began
Homecoming Christmas, I wanna be there once again
Memories do sweet and strong and Ive been done too long
Its Christmas time and Im comin home

I can see the Christmas tree and feel the warm fireplace
Handmade decorations, homemade pies and cakes
Family all together with so much love to share
A special time and I cant wait, cant wait to be there

Its a Homecoming Christmas, goin back to where it all began
Homecoming Christmas, I wanna be there once again
Memories do sweet and strong and Ive been done too long
Its Christmas time and Im comin home

How do you fall in love
When do you say "I do"
When is the perfect time
To spend the rest of your life
Now seasons may come and go
Sometimes it rains and snows
And there will be highs and lows
So only you will know

You never know just where it will find you
Cause it can come on you so fast
Or seems like it takes forever
When you want it so bad
But dont ever take it for granted
Cause its more than sowing some seeds
It takes sun and water
So give it what it needs

Thats how you fall in love
Thats when do you say "I do"
Thats when you know its time
To spend the rest of your life
Now seasons may come and go
Sometimes it rains and snows
And there will be highs and lows
So only you will know
And there will be highs and lows
So only you will know

Is that what time it is
Im sorry if I woke you with this call
But all this wine is in my head
And Im so lonely from it all
Dont hang up
Baby hear what I gotta say
We started out such a beautiful story
We just cant end this way

I wanna come over I wanna love you tonight
I dont care about the time or whos wrong or whos right
Just say its OK and Ill be on my way
I wanna come over could you get outta bed
Ill try to unsay all the things Ive said
Please say its OK and Ill be on my way

Is that what time it is
Im sorry if Im keeping you from your sleep
But all these feelings are running through me
You know I never knew they ran so deep
Whats that youre sayin
That just before I phoned
You were gettin ready to give me call
Cause you were feelin so alone

I wanna come over I wanna love you tonight
I dont care about the time or whos wrong or whos right
Just say its OK and Ill be on my way
I wanna come over could you get outta bed
Ill try to unsay all the things Ive said
Please say its OK and Ill be on my way
I wanna come over
I comin over
I wanna come over
Just let me come over tonight

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

Don't know why
I have to drive so fast
My car has nothing to prove
It's not new
But it'll do 0 to 60 in 5.2.

Oh, I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

Can't be late
I leave in plenty of time
Shaking hands with the clock
I can't stop
I'm on a roll and I'm ready to rock.

Oh, I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

I hear a voice
That say's I'm running behind
I better pick up my pace
It's a race
And there ain't no room
For someone in second place.

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why...

Theres something sexy bout the way youre dressed
I can see youre lookin your best tonight, thats right
Youre walkin with a new attitude
Theres something different bout the way youre movin tonight, thats right
But before we walk out the door, let me say one thing more

Save one last dance for our bedroom
Baby, Im in that kind of mood
There aint no tellin what we might do
When its all over and the night is through
Baby, how bout you, Im in that kind of mood

Its been a while since weve been out

Its feelin like our first date
To tell the truth now honey I cant wait to go
And I think you know
Well tonight its just us two and baby I want you

But before we walk out the door, let me say one thing more
Save one last dance for our bedroom

If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and lets all dance
If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

I remember down in Houston we were puttin on a show
When a cowboy in the back stood up and yelled, "Cotton-Eyed Joe"!
He said, "We love what youre doin, boys dont get us wrong
Theres just somethin missin in your song"

If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and lets all dance
If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case
You say yall all wanna two-step
You say ya wanna doe-si-doe
Well, heres your fiddlin song before we go

If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and lets all dance
If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and lets all dance
If youre gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

Ive got her photograph on the stand by my bed
Two on the mantle and thousands in my head
I cant believe how fast shes growing it aint supposed to be like this
Everytime I look at her I see how much Ive missed

I missed her first steps, her first words
And I love you Daddy is something I seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so to watch my girl grow up in pictures

I sent her money down do my best to do my part
But it cant compare to what I pay with my heart
Theres still one unanswered question weighing heavy on my mind
Will she ever understand the reasons why

I missed her first steps, her first words
And I love you Daddy is something I seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so to watch my girl grow up in pictures

It takes all I have to keep the tears inside
What I wouldnt give if I could turn back time

I missed her first steps, her first words
And I love you Daddy is something I seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so to watch my baby grow up in pictures

Is the magic still there whenever I hold you
Do these lips of mine send chills down your spine
Like they used to
Or is it slipping away
Baby come out and say
Im asking because I care
I just need to know is the magic still there

Oh I still recall our first time together
Oh we kissed and we touched
We couldnt get enough of each other
And when we said goonight
Beneath that old porch light
It left us wanting more
But Im wondering now if time has somehow
Changed what we felt before

Is the magic still there whenever I hold you
Do these lips of mine send chills down your spine
Like they used to
Or is it slipping away
Baby come out and say
Im asking because I care
I just need to know is the magic still there

Am I still the one that you daydream of
When we turn out the light
Is there fire in the night when we make love
Dont want to take you for granted
So baby Im askin only because I care
I just want to know

Is the magic still there whenever I hold you
Do these lips of mine send chills down your spine
Like they used to
Or is it slipping away
Baby come out and say
Im asking because I care
I just need to know is the magic still there
Is the magic still there
Is the magic still there

Out here is the country theres magic in the air.
Its the middle of December theres excitement eveywhere

Everyones invited, the celebrations planned
The gift is just whats in your heart and not whats in your hand

Whos the one we need to thanks
Whos the party for
Whos the one responsible for all this peace and joy
Who deserves the credit for the blessings we enjoy
Preacher said last Sunday it was Joesph and Marys boy

There were times we didnt think wed make it through the year
The bankers tried to take our farms but somehow were still here

I dont know how the crops survived the drought and then the rain
It must have been a miracle how else could you explain

Whos the one we need to thanks
Whos the party for
Whos the one responsible for all this peace and joy
Who deserves the credit for the blessings we enjoy
Preacher said last Sunday it was Joesph and Marys boy

The Christ Child born in Bethlehem
He was Joesph and Marys boy

Youve got me achin
More than I should
My heart is breakin
Oh dont it feel good
Cause I know for certain
Were magic in love
Youve got me hurtin
Cause I cant get enough

I just couldnt say no
Even though I should
Even if I did
Wonder if you could
I just couldnt say no no
When your eyes say yes yes
I just cant say no
Ive tried my best

The way you tease me
Makes me want you more
You purr like a kitten
But I hear you roar
Your body language
Is talkin to me
Right here in the darkness
Its so plain to see

I just couldnt say no
Even though I should
Even if I did
Wonder if you could
I just couldnt say no no
When your eyes say yes yes
I just cant say no
Ive tried my best
I just cant say no

I just couldnt say no no
When your eyes say yes yes
I just cant say no

Keep on dreamin with me

Your hair is so soft and your eyes are so brown
Your bodys warm here next to me
You be my woman and Ill be your man
And your love is all Ill ever need

It took so long for me to find you
Ive been lonely for so long, lonely
You came into me life to love me
Now my loneliness is gone

You cant improve on perfection
And you are perfect for me
Cast your love in my direction
And I know that you will see

I am so happy with you in my arms
Honey dont you ever leave
Lay back and love me and tell me youre mine
Keep on dreamin with me
Lay back and love me and tell me youre mine
Keep on dreamin with me
Lay back and love me and tell me youre mine
Keep on dreamin with me

Its her first night on the town since she was just eighteen
A lady down on love and out of hope and dreams
The ties that once bound her now are broke away
And shes like a baby, just learning how to play

She never thought that love could ever end so soon
Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon
When he asked her to marry and she glady said O.K
And a woman came to be from the girl of yesterday

Now shes a lady down on love
She needs somebody to gentley pick her up
Shes got her freedom, but shed rather be bound
To a man who would love her and never let her down

Well, I know a lady thats down on her love
Cause I used to hold her and have that special touch
But work took me a way from home late at nights
And I wasnt there when she turned out the lights
Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust
And she just couldnt live with a man she couldnt trust

Now shes a lady down on love
She needs somebody to gently pick her up
Shes got her freedom, but shed rather be bound
To man who would love her and never let her down
Now shes a lady down on love

You say hello, I say goodbye
You go your way and I go mine
Theres not much time for you and I these days
We work too hard, were gone too much
And were too tired to even touch
So just how long can we go on this way

Oh, lifes too short to love this fast
If we dont slow down our hearts wont last
We cant keep up this pace were on right now
We burn the candle at both ends
The circle turns, we start again
Lets make our future better than our past
Lifes too short to love this fast

Lets take some time, lets get away
Lets pack our bags and leave today
Girl, anyplace would be okay right now
Just leave your pager here at home
And I wont carry my cell phone
We need to find some time alone somehow

Yeah, lifes too short to love this fast
If we dont slow down our hearts wont last
We cant keep up this pace were on right now
We burn the candle at both ends
The circle turns, we start again
Lets make our future better than our past
Lifes too short to love this fast

Were spinnin our wheels
Forgetting how love feels
Lets slow down before its too late

Cause lifes too short to love this fast
If we dont slow down our hearts wont last
Lets make our future better than our past
Lifes too short to love this fast

Love this fast
Lifes too short

You call me up for nothin

We start talkin bout lovin
You get to me everytime

Its those little things you do that make me love you so
Little things that only you and I could ever know
You dont have to lay the whole wide world here at my feel, oh no
Its those little things you do that mean the most to me

Lyin in the bed beside you
Touchin in the middle of the night
No you dont have to do any talkin
To tell me everything is all right

Little things that only you and I will ever know
You dont have to lay the whole wide world here at my feel, oh no
Its those little things you do that mean the most to me

It's her first night on the town since she was just eighteen
A lady down on love and out of hope and dreams
The ties that once bound her now are broke away
And she's like a baby, just learning how to play

Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon

She needs somebody to gentley pick her up
She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound
To a man who would love her and never let her down

'Cause I used to hold her and have that special touch
But work took me a way from home late at nights
And I wasn't there when she turned out the lights
Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust
And she just couldn't live with a man she couldn't trust

Now she's a lady down on love
She needs somebody to gently pick her up
She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound
To man who would love her and never let her down
Now she's a lady down on love

When the last drop of rain has fallen
When the final note has drifted away
When the earth ceases to turn
And the last fire has burned

When the wind stops its ceaseless blowing
When the last wave has come into shore
When the sun has called it a day
And the stars have all floated away

My heart will still be yours, baby
My dreams will still be yours, darlin
You and I will find nothing has changed
Love, love, love
Love, love, love (remains)

When we have grown old together
And the hourglass runs out of sand
Darlin you will kiss me and then
Forever starts all over again

My heart will still be yours, baby
My dreams will still be yours, darlin
You and I will find nothing has changed
Love, love, love
Love, love, love (remains)

My soul is one with yours, baby
Just to hold you drives me crazy
In your eyes I see... you feel the same
Love, love, love
Love, love, love remains

Love remains like an endless flame
Through the brightest joys and the darkest pain
In the end....

My heart will still be yours, baby
My dreams will still be yours, darlin
You and I will find nothing has changed
Love, love, love
Love, love, love (remains)

My soul is one with yours, baby
Just to hold you drives me crazy
In your eyes I see... you feel the same
Love, love, love
Love, love, love remains
Love, love, love
Love, love, still remains
Love, love, love
Love, love, remains
Love, love, love
Love, remains
Love, love, love
Love, love, still remains
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, still remains
Oh, love, love, love
Love, love, love
Oh, love, love, love

I`ve rehearsed this day a thousand times
Ive played this scene out in my mind
You spread your wings, you need to fly
It breaks my heart to say goodbye
These arms of mine wanna pull you close
But I love you enough to let you go

My mind goes back to memories
Of pony rides upon my knee
First day of school, your brand new bike
And football games on Friday nights
And through the years Ive watched you grow
And I love you enough to let you go

Dont look back when you drive away
I dont wanna change your mind
I know in all your eighteen years
Youve never seen your daddy cry

So many things I wanna say
Youll meet new friends, youll be okay
Ill pray for you out on your own
But dont forget your way back home
And though I may not let it show
I love you enough to let you go

Dont look back when you drive away
I dont wanna change your mind
I know in all your eighteen years
Youve never seen your daddy cry

These arms of mine wanna pull you close
But I love you enough to let you go

I dont mind the cold and rain where Im waiting
Im holding on to your memry as tight as I can
And silver wings are bringing you back so I can hold you
And let me know that Im still your lovin man

You carry my dreams through the darkness while Im sleeping
The part of love that I need to fit my plan
And I dont need nobody else to ease my feelings
As long as I can be your lovin man

I been waiting here for days to see that big steel bird arrive
And just the thought of lovin you is whats kept this man alive

Share with me all the joy life can bring us
Though my kingdows may be castles made of sand
Darlin please spend your sunshine days beside me
And let me always be your lovin man

Your lovin man (lovin man)
And let me be (your lovin man)
Your lovin man (lovin man)
And let me be (your lovin man)
Your lovin man (lovin man

Oh, play me some mountain music
Like grandma and grandpa used to play
Then Ill float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway

Drift away like Tom Sawyer
Ride a raft with ol Huck Finn
Take a nap like Rip Van Winkle
Daze dreamin again

Oh, play me some mountain music
Like grandma and grandpa used to play
Then Ill float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway

Swim across the river
Just to prove that Im a man
Spend the day bein lazy
Just bein natures friend

Climb a long tall hickry
Bend it over, "skinnin cats."
Playin baseball with chert rocks
Usin sawmill slabs for bats

Play some back-home, come-on music
That comes from the heart
Play something with lots of feelin
Cause thats where music has to start

Oh, play me some mountain music
Like grandma and grandpa used to play
Then Ill float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway, hey hey

Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play
Yeehaw

I`ve got sunshine
On a cloudy day
And when its cold outside girl
I`ve got the month of May
Oh I guess youd say
What can make me feel this way
My girl, (my girl my girl) talkin bout my girl
My girl

I`ve got so much honey
The bees envy me
I`ve got a sweeter song baby
Than the birds in the trees
Well I guess youd say
What can make me feel this way
My girl, (my girl my girl) talkin bout my girl
My girl

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
I dont need no money
Fortune or fame
I`ve got all the riches baby
One man can claim
Well I guess youd say
What can make me feel this way
My girl (my girl my girl) talkin bout my girl
My girl talkin bout my girl
On a cloudy day with my girl
I`ve even got the month of May with my girl
Talkin bout talkin bout my girl
Talkin bout my girl

Drinkin was forbidden in my Christian country home
I learned to play the flattop on them good ol Gospel songs
Then I heard about the barrooms just across the Georgia line
Where a boy could make a livin playin guitar late at night

Had to learn about the ladies, too young to understand
Why the young girls fall in love with the boys in the band
When the boys turn to music, the girls just turn away
To some other guitar picker in some other late night place

Yeah, held on to my music, I let the ladies walk away
Took my songs and dreams to Nashville then I moved on to L.A.
Up to New York City all across the USA
I lost so much of me but theres enough of me to say that my

Homes in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head
My homes in Alabama, Southern born and Southern bred

What keeps me goin I dont really know
Cant be the money Lord knows Im always broke
Could it be the satisfaction of bein understood
When the people really love ya and let you know when its good

Oh Ill speak my Southern English just as natural as I please
Im in the heart of Dixie, Dixies in the heart of me
And someday when I make it, when love finds a way
Somewhere high on Lookout Mountain Ill just smile with pride and say that my

Homes in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head
My homes in Alabama, Southern born and Southern bred
Southern born and Southern bred
Southern born and Southern bred

And my homes in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head
My homes in Alabama, Southern born and Southern bred
Southern born and Southern bred
Southern born and Southern bred

Baby, lets make a date for a night on the town
How does the turn of the century sound
I guarantee that well have a good time
New Years Eve 1999

Now I know it sounds a bit premature
But Im askin you now cause I want to be sure
Do you have anything else in mind
New Years Eve 1999

Well drink pink champagne from a plastic cup
Dance all night til the sun comes up
Well say its been a pretty good century
Except for that weekend in 93

Then well go home to our warn winter bed
And tuck in the kids with a kiss on the head
And sing one more chorus of Auld Lang Syne
New Years Eve 1999

Ill be your sweetheart if youll be mine
New Years Eve 1999, New Years Eve 1999

Why do you ask
Of course Im alright
I guess I wasnt thinking
Id run into you tonight
Do I seem surprised
I guess you caught me off guard
Yes Im really doing fine
No it hasnt been that hard

How bout you
Getting on with your life
Theres so much to tell you
That I wont even try
My, its good to see you
How long has it been
I must admit I think about you
Every now and then

Like when I open my eyes
When I lay down at night
Every moment ever since
The day you said goodbye
But youll never know
Ccause I keep it inside
How am I doing without you
Of course Im alright

Well to tell you the truth
I guess I have felt better
God just look at you wow
You make it look so easy
I can see it on yout face
Everything we used to be
Is gone without a trace

If you wanna know
Right now Im sinking fast
Girl you always could see
Right behind this mask
But I wont give it away
Gonna keep it inside
How am I doing without you
Of course Im alright

If you dont want to know the truth
Of course Im alright

saw you starin' at each other
I saw your eyes begin to glow
And I could tell you once were lovers
But you ain't hidin' nothin' that I don't know.

There's an old flame burnin' in your eyes
That tears can't drown and make-up can't disguise
Now that old flame might not be stronger but it's been burnin' longer
Than any spark I might have started in your eyes.

--- Instrumental ---

You said it ended when he left you
You say your love for me is strong
But those old memories still upset you
Well, I might be a memory before too long.

'Cause there's an old flame burnin' in your eyes
That tears can't drown and make-up can't disguise
Now that old flame might not be stronger but it's been burnin' longer
Than any spark I might have started in your eyes.

There's an old flame burnin' in your eyes
That tears can't drown and make-up can't disguise
Now that old flame might not be stronger
But it's been burnin' longer...

Well its concrete and asphalt
Drivin into work every day
This livin cant be healthy
But the Lord knows I got bills to pay
And theres others here just like me
They got families to feed

One more time around (time around)
On the job is where Ill be found
One more time around (time around)
Earn my pay and hear that whistle sound

Well thunder and lighting
It dont matter, nothin stops the clock
The radios are blastin
Mine is playin country some play rock
The rhythm and blues of the workplace
We take pride in everything we make

One more time around (time around)
On the job is where Ill be found
One more time around (time around)
Earn my pay and hear that whistle sound

Five oclock is comin
Were all racin down the same track
Life is a circle
Sometimes we meet ourselves comin back

Well one more time around (time around)
On the job is where Ill be found
One more time around (time around)
Earn my pay and hear that whistle sound

One more time around
Time around, time around
Time around, time around
Time around, time around
Time around

Lets roll the windows down, turn the radio up
Let the wind blow through our hair
Love is reckless
Lets get reckless tonight

There aint nothin out here but a big ol Texas sky
Theres a red sun painted across the coming night
Well, your daddys got plans for you
and mine thinks Im at school
They say its reckless to chase a dream
But this towns got nothing for you and me

Lets roll the windows down, turn the radio up
Let the wind blow through our hair
Theres a moon tonight and a road outside, baby
Were gettin out of here.
I could care less where it leads us
Love is reckless lets get reckless tonight

Lets take my Thunderbird and leave tonight,
Ill keep the pedal to the floor till we see the morning light.
They cant live our lives for us,
If we let them well lose our love.
And love dies hard in this Texas sun,
Id rather be reckless and on the run

Lets roll the windows down, turn the radio up
Let the wind blow through our hair
Theres a moon tonight and a road outside, baby
Were gettin out of here.
I could care less where it leads us
Love is reckless lets get reckless tonight

When youre crazy in love you gotta take a chance,
Burn the bridge and dont look back.

Turn the radio up roll the windows down
Let the wind blow through our hair
Theres a moon tonight and a road outside,
Baby were gettin out of here
Roll the windows down.
Turn the radio up

I remember campin all night
Down by the rivers edge
Skinny dippin in the bright moonlight
Divin off a ledge
Skippin rocks across the water
Fishin on an old trout line
Giggin frogs til the early mornin
Smokin dried crossvine

Take me back down where the Red River rolls
Send me back to Louisianne
Take me back down where the white water flows
To the Cajun promised land
Give me my line and my old pirogue
Get me back as fast as you can
Take me back home where the Red River rolls
Take me back home where the Red River rolls

Floatin down the river on a patched up inner tube
Eatin dinner on the ground
Made of fresh caught catfish stew
Lay wake at night
When I hear a wildcat scream
Tellin tales by campfire light
About the girls in our dreams

Take me back home where the Red River rolls
Send me back to Louisianne
Take me back down where the white water flows
To the Cajun promised land
Give me my line and my old pirogue
Get me back as fast as you can
Take me back home where the Red River rolls
Take me back home where the Red River rolls

Take me back home where the Red River rolls
Send me back to Louisianne
Take me back down where the white water flows
To the Cajun promised land
Give me my line and my old pirogue
Get me back as fast as you can
Take me back home where the Red River rolls
Take me back home where the Red River rolls

Seems like everywhere I look
Theres another version of the same old book
And someone telling me its new
Every song on my radio sounds like one I heard a long time ago
Different windows, same old view
Yeah
Uh-huh

All the clothes in the magazines I could swear Ive already seen
In my closet years ago
Hairstyles and super-malls, youve seen one well youve seen them all
Tell me something I dont know

But in a world thats mostly imitation
Its hard to recognize the real
It takes a brave heart to resist temptation
To take the easy way and reinvent the wheel
(Yeah)

A friend of mine finds Mr. Right every other Friday night
At a smoky singles bar
And she cant seem to understand why life dont go like she plans
She goes on whishing on a star
Yeah

But in a world thats mostly imitation
Its hard to recognize the real
It takes a brave heart to resist temptation
To take the easy way and reinvent the wheel
(Yeah)

But in a world thats mostly imitation
Its hard to recognize the real
It takes a brave heart to resist temptation
To take the easy way and reinvent the wheel
(Yeah)

Reinvent the wheel

Well, rockin around the Christmas tree at the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see every couple of tries to stop
Rockin around the Christmas tree let the Christmas spirit ring
Later well have some pumpkin pie and well do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling, when you hear voices singing
"Lets be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly"

Well, rockin around the Christmas tree, have a happy holiday
Everyone feeling merrily in the new old-fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling, when you hear voices singing
"Lets be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly"

Yeah, rockin around the Christmas tree have a happy holiday
Everyone feeling merrily in the new old-fashioned way

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler roll on (roll on)

Well its Monday morning, hes kissin momma goodbye
Hes up and gone with the sun
Daddy drives an eighteen-wheeler
And hes off on a midwest run
As three sad faces gather round momma
They ask her when daddys comin home
Daddy drives an eighteen-wheeler
And they sure miss him when hes gone (yeah they do)

Ah, but he calls them every night and he tells them that he loves them
He taught them this song to sing

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler, roll on (roll on)

Well its Wednesday evening, mommas waitin by the phone
It rings but its not his voice
Seems the highway patrol has found a jack-knifed rig
In a snow bank in Illinois

But the driver was missin and the search had been abandoned
For the weather had everything stalled
And they had checked all the houses and the local motels
When they had some more news theyd call
And she told them when they found him to tell him that she loved him
And she hung up the phone singin

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler roll on

Momma and the children will be waiting up all night long
Thinkin nothing but the worst is comin
With the ringin of the telephone
Oh, but the man upstairs was listening
When momma asked him to bring daddy home
And when the call came in it was daddy on the other end
Askin her if she had been singin the song, singin

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler, roll on (roll on)

Eighteen-wheeler
Eighteen-wheeler
Eighteen-wheeler
Eighteen-wheeler
Roll on
Roll on
Roll on
Roll on

thought that you could fly
I thought that you had wings
I guess that I believed
Youd never say goodbye
But my world stopped turnin round
The stars turned upside down
It knocked me to the ground on my knees

Now theres a sad lookin moon
Shinin down on me
Theres a sad lookin sky
As far as I can see
I always believed
And I thought the stars could see
But theres a sad lookin moon
Shinin down on me

I shared with you my dreams
I gave you everything
I opened up my heart
And I gave you my ring
Well I spent days and nights
Just thinkin about the time
When you would be mine all my life

Now theres a sad lookin moon
Shinin down on me
Theres a sad lookin sky
As far as I can see
I always believed
And I thought the stars could see
But theres a sad lookin moon
Shinin down on me

Theres a sad lookin moon
A sad lookin moon
Theres a sad lookin moon
Shinin down on me

You always come around this time of year with your big ole bag thats full of Christmas cheer
And when it starts to snow the little boys and girls all know soon theyll hear the sound of your reindeer

Now sometimes grownups grow up to believe that you dont really come on
Christmas Eve
But I dont think thats true cause I know I see you in sparking little eyes around the tree

Oh Santa Claus, I still believe in you
And theres still a kid inside of me that still believes youre true
Oh Santa Claus, the kids are tucked in tight
And its time to play ole Santa Clause tonight

Well I dont see how anybody could ever doubt that theres really a Santa Clause.
Not if theyve ever seen a little girl with her arms wrapped around her baby doll,
So tight both of em waking up Mama and Daddy way before daylight
And Grandma and Grandpa are looking young and full of life,
Just knowin that their grandkids are gonna be alright
And Mama and Daddy, theyll be waitin up to answer ole Santas call.
"Cause tonight they aint worried about the bills- Lord theyre just lovin it all

Oh Santa Claus, I still believe in you
And theres still a kid inside of me that still believes youre true
Oh Santa Claus, the kids are tucked in tight
And Ill be waiting up for you tonight
Ho-Ho-Ho

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She dont love carelessly thats what Ive always heard
Cant use the usual lines she measures every word
No empty promises proof is what it takes to win her heart
The truth and nothing less, simple things that set her far apart
Save your diamonds and your furs shes not your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary, no shes not
She aint your ordinary girl
She aint your ordinary, oh no
She aint your ordinary girl

No midnight alibis, no foolish games for her
And if you cross the line youll get what you deserve
But when you see her smile nothing seems to matter anymore
And in a little while youll feel like youve never felt before
Like no other in the world, shes not your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary, no shes not
She aint your ordinary girl
She aint your ordinary, oh no
She aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

Save your diamonds and your furs, she aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She aint your ordinary
She aint your ordinary girl

She and I live in our own little world
Don't worry about the world outside
She and I agree
She and I lead a perfectly normal life.

Ah, but just because we aren't often seen socially
People think we've got something to hide
But all our friends know we're just a little
Old fashioned, she and I.

Oh, ain't it great (ain't it great)
Ain't it fine (ain't it fun)
To have a love (a love) someone (someone) that others can't find
Ain't it wonderful to know all we ever need is just the two of us?
She and I
So wonderful, she and I.

Ah, she and I share with every body else
The same wants, needs and desires
Ah, she and I save
She and I pay on everything we acquire.

Ah, but just because we aren't often seen separately
People think we live one life.
It's hard for them to see how anyone could be
As close as she and I.

Oh, ain't it great (ain't it great)
Ain't it fine (ain't it fun)
To have a love (a love) someone (someone) that others can't find
Ain't it wonderful to know all we ever will need is just the two of us?
She and I.

(She and I live in our own little world) Ain't it wonderful?
(She and I live in our own little world) Ain't it wonderful?
She and I, I, I
Ain't it wonderful? oh, wo, ho
So wonderful, Oh remember, she and I
So wonderful.

Ah, she and I live in our own little world
Now, now, any place, anyone
So wonderful

She and I... ooh, ooh, ooh...

He was a good time beer bar picker
Until the night she came along
He gave up his women and his liquor
And she put the sad in all his songs

Something about her made him sorry
She was holy in his eyes
She had him bound and hypnotized

She put the sad in all his songs
She put the blues in his guitar
She took what he had and she made it wrong
She put the sad in all his songs

She was the rattlesnake that bit him
SHe was the blow fromup behind
She thought the tear in his eye just might fit him
And he was the last thing on her mind

She put the sad in all his songs
She put the blues in his guitar
She took what he had and she made it wrong
She put the sad in all his songs

She put the sad in all his songs
She put the blues in his guitar
She took what he had and she made it all wrong
She put the sad in all his songs

She put the sad in all his songs
She put the blues in his guitar
She took what he had and she made it wrong
She put the sad in all his songs

Shes still got those pretty eyes
Like she did in school
The first time that she looked at me
My heart went ka-boom
Today I saw that look again
On sale in summer square
She looked so good in what she wore
Somehow it dont seem fair

Shes got that look in her eyes
Just like shes always had
Shes got that smile on her lips
That always drives me mad
When she looks at me
The way I feel comes as no surprise
I love that look
When shes got that look in her eyes

Just today she looked at me
And I felt like a kid
Even though Im grown up now
The puzzle seems to fit
I may never have her
But Ill still love her still
Oh I may never hold her
In my mind I always will

Shes got that look in her eyes
Just like shes always had
Shes got that smile on her lips
That always drives me mad
When she looks at me
The way I feel comes as no surprise
I love that look
When shes got that look in her eyes

When she looks at me
The way I feel comes as no surprise
I love that look
When shes got that look in her eyes

Out on highway 1, I saw a camper van parked out on the shoulder
Thinkin they had broken down, I pulled over
There was a little old lady and her old man kickin back relaxin
They said "sit down and help us celebrate our golden anniversary"
They had foldin chairs, they were holdin hands starin at the fields
I said "man this aint no movie, this is real"

Love should be as simple as that
Foldin chairs, holdin hands and matching baseball caps
Love is wanting what you have
Love should be as simple as that

They said "stay awhile", I siad "I thought I might and ask some burnin questions"
Like howd you make love last so long, they started laughing
He said "to keep our love from danger, I treat her like a stranger"
Courteous, considerate and kind

Love should be as simple as that
Foldin chairs, holdin hands and matching baseball caps
Love is wanting what you have
Love should be as simple as that

So I went home and I said "baby, baby listen"
Theres something missin in our lives
She said " I know, I been tryin to tell you"
We need more communication, an exotic vacation
Big screen tv, redwood jacuzzi
Dinners out, concerts and movies
New kitchen, big addition, a pool, jewelry
Sauna, fish pond and a five acre lawn
I said " get in the camper"

Love should be as simple as that
Foldin chairs, holdin hands and matching baseball caps
Love is wanting what you have
Love should be as simple as that

Love should be as simple as that
Love should be as simple as that

Theres a little cafe on the corner of town
Lucy works there til the sun goes down
It aint very much but she brings home the bacon and the bread

We got a mortgage we pay just a little bit on
But it seems like all of our money is gone
Before we get a chance to get ahead
Thats small stuff, we dont sweat the small stuff

Why worry about the mortgage and the minimum wage
Traffic and the taxes and the coming of age
Small stuff
Theres a comfort in the knowing theres a spirit in us
Giving us the courage and the wisdom to trust
In a love thats so much greater than all the small stuff
So we dont sweat the small stuff

Theres a little bitty hole in the ceiling above
Sometimes the rain drips down on our temple of love
We have to put a pot smack dab in the middle of the bed
Somebody hit my car at the diner last night
Had to drive it home with one taillight
When I went out this morning, the engine was dead
Thats small stuff, we dont sweat the small stuff

Why worry about the mortgage and the minimum wage
Traffic and the taxes and the coming of age
Small stuff
Theres a comfort in the knowing theres a spirit in us
Giving us the courage and the wisdom to trust
In a love thats so much greater than all the small stuff
So we dont sweat the small stuff

Theres a little cafe on the corner of town
Lucy works there til the sun goes down
And she dont sweat the small stuff

I remember, walking through flowers
In a garden of a memry Im thinkin of
I remember, being in heaven
Some other place, some other time, some other love
I remember, walking on silver sand
With a mid summer moon shining above
And I remember, the taste of her sweet lips
Some other place, some other time, some other love

I remember holding her close to me
And I can picture the nights we shared alone
When Im dreaming, it all seems so real to me
Then I wake up and find its all done

Tomorrow, I may be holding another girl
But tonight shes not the one Im thinkin of
Could it be, my life would just be a memry
Of some other place, some other time, some other love
Of some other place, some other time, some other love
Of some other place, some other time, some other love

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie, and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't no body lookin' back again.

Cotton on roadside, cotton in the ditch
We all picked the cotton but we never got rich
Daddy was a veteren, a southern democrat
They oughta get rich man to vote like that.
Singing:

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie, and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't no body looking back again.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, somebody told us wall street fell
But we were so poor that we couldnt tell
The cotton was short, and the weeds was tall
But Mr. Roosevelt's a-gonna save us all.

Well, momma got sick, and daddy got down
The county got the farm, and we moved to town
Poppa got a job with the T.V.A.
We bought a washing machine, and then a Chevrolet.

Singing: Song, song of the south
Sweet potatoe pie, and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There aint nobody looking back again.

Song, song of the south
Sweet potatoe pie, and I shut my mouth.

Singing: Song, song of the south
Sweet potatoe pie, and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There aint nobody looking back again.

Song, song of the south
Sweet potatoe pie, and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There aint nobody looking back again.

Song, song of the south
Sweet potatoe pie, and I shut my mouth...

He just cant wait to graduate
Hes marking time and counting days
Hell toss that cap and watch that tassel fly
So he can start living
Yeah, finally start living
Cause hes got big plans
And hell have time on his hands
To start living

Before he knows ten years are gone
A dead-end job, a mortgage loan
He wonders where the chances passed him by
To really start living
Yeah he wants to start living
And soon hes sure
He can finally afford
To start living

Hell read more books
Hell make more love
Hell talk more to the man above
Hell watch the sunset in the west
And visit Mexico
Hell learn to cook, hell play some ball
Hell write that book, hell make that call
Hell take the time
Some other time
Someday hell do it all

Well sittin in the barber chair
He sees the silver in his hair
Those golden years are comin right behind
And then hell start living
Hell really start living
Yeah he feels tired
Ah, but soon hell retire
And start living

Hell read more books
Hell make more love
Hell talk more to the man above
Hell watch the sunset in the west
And visit Mexico
Hell learn to cook, hell play some ball
Hell write that book, hell make that call
Hell take the time
Some other time
Someday hell do it all

Well the doctor says, Ive got bad news
Afraid theres nothing we can do
And all at once the tears are in his eys
Hell never start living
Never really start living
Yeah he had big plans
But theres no time on his hands
To start living

When he sees the pearly gates
Hell really start living

Fly away with me tonight
Take me on a one-way flight
In your lovin arms
Everythings gonna be alright

Youre the one who took my hand
No one else could understand
Youre the one who moves me

Take me down and love me all night long
Hold me close and make me strong

In your eyes, I see a light
Its your emotions glowing bright
So keep the fires burning
Let it warm me through the night
You can be a part of me
Cause youre what love was meant to be
You and me, baby

Everytime we get together
Maybe love was meant for you and me

Take me down and love me all night long
Hold me close and make me strong

Come on weather man give us a forecast snowy white
Cant you hear the prayers of every childlike heart tonight
Rockies are callin, Denver snow fallin
Somebody said its four feet deep, but it doesnt matter
Give me the laughter, Im gonna choose to keep

Another tender Tennessee Christmas, the only Chirstmas for me
Where the love circles around us like the gifts around our tree
Well I know theres more snow up in Colorado than my roof will ever see
But a tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me

Every now and then I get a wanderin urge to see
Maybe California, maybe Tinsel Towns for me
Theres a parade there, wed have it made there
Bring home a tan for New Years Eve
Sure sounds exciting, awfully inviting, still I think Im gonna keep

Another tender Tennessee Christmas, the only Christmas for me
Where the love circles around us like the gifts around our tree
Well they say in L.A. its a warm holiday, its the only place to be
A tender Tennessee Christmas, is the only Christmas for me

Well I know theres more snow up in Colorado than my roof will ever see
But a tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me
A tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me

I was born across the river
In the mountains where I call home.
Lord, times were good there.
Don't know why I ever roamed.

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band.

--- Instrumental ---

Me and my woman's done made our plans
On the Tennessee River, walkin' hand in hand
Gonna raise a famly, Lord, settle down
Where peace and love can still be found.

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band.

Oh, Tennessee River.
--- Instrumental ---

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band.

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,

Oh, Tennessee River...

I stand here lookin up at the starts tonight, how can one man have so much in life
As I look around me, what a picture it paints, Im much more than lucky, I oughta give my thanks
Theres food on the table, a log on the fire, and in my womans eyes theres love and desire

The blessings, sent from above, oh, the blessings, a life full of love
When I look around I can see, all thats been given me, so lift my eyes up to the sky
I wanna give my, my, my, my, my thanks for the blessings

Sometimes I fall asleep at the end of the day and I forget to thank you, Im ashamed to say
But as I lay m down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I know you can hear me here on Earth, thank you for giving me more than I deserve

The blessings, sent from above, oh, the blessings, a life full of love
When I look around I can see, all thats been given me, so lift my eyes up to the sky
Cause I wanna give my, my, my, my, my thanks for the blessings

Blessings, when I look around, I can see, all thats been given me
So, I lift my eyes up to the sky, cause I wanna give my, my, my, my, my thanks for the blessings
The blessings, oh, the blessings

I see the lights of the city tonight and I see a star shinin so bright
A babe in a manger in swaddling clothes, its you, its me everyone knows

The Christmas spirit is in the air, the Christmas spirit is everywhere
Like the day Christ was born in Bethlehem, the Christmas spirit has been coming down

I hear the sound of church bell ring, and I see kids and grown-ups sing
A real live nativity scene, its you, its me, we all know what it means

The Christman spirit is in the air, the Christmas spirit is everywhere
Like the day Christ was born in Bethlehem, the Christmas spirit has been coming down

An its time to let the angels sing, its time to praise the newborn King
Its time for that eastern star to shine, its time, its Christmas time

Yes, its time to let the angels sing, its time to praise the newborn King
Its time for that eastern start to shine, its time, its Christmas time

Since the day Christ was born in Bethlehem, the Christmas spirit has been coming down

I was taught to believe and never to doubt
The man up above knows what he's talking about
So when I heard that voice so loud and clear
Speak to my heart I knew that she must be near.

The maker said take her and love her forever
Take care of her for life
And treat her right.

--- Instrumental ---

I never was the one for listening very well
I walked my own way and felt what I felt
Further out of touch with the master plan
She was like a flight to the promised land.

The maker said take her and love her forever
Take care of her for life
Never forsake her, don't be a heartbreaker
The maker said take her and treat her right.
Just treat her right.

--- Instrumental ---

He placed an angel in the palm of my hands
For once of my life I obeyed his comands.

I'll take her and lover her forever
Take care of her for life
Never forsake her, don't be a heartbreaker
The maker said take her and treat her right.
Just treat her right.

Oo, Just treat her right.

The maker said take her and love her forever;
Take care of her for life.
Never forsake her, don't be no heartbreaker
The maker said take her and treat her right.
Treat her right.

For life...

Youve got your secrets, girl Ive got mine
Were fallin apart one glance at a time
Night after night, actin like strangers
Out of emotion, nothing to say
I brush your shoulder but you turn away
Nobody tries, nobodys changin
Wholl be the first to say its really the end
Whos gonna walk out the door
How did we let it get so out of control
Our hearts cant take anymore

Then we remember how much we love each other
Pick the pieces up for one more try
Then we remember how much we need each other
Do we really wanna say goodbye

One night of passion wont stop the pain
Back to the same old feelin again
Time after time, is it worth savin
Wholl be the first to say its really the end
Whos gonna walk out the door
How did we let it get so out of control
Our hearts cant take anymore

Then we remember how much we love each other
Pick the pieces up for one more try
Then we remember how much we need each other
Do we really wanna say goodbye

Then we remember how much we love each other
Pick the pieces up for one more try
Then we remember how much we need each other
Do we really wanna say goodbye

Then we remember how much we love each other
Pick the pieces up for one more try
Then we remember how much we need each other
Do we really wanna say goodbye

Then we remember how much we love each other
Pick the pieces up for one more try
Then we remember how much we need each other
Do we really wanna say goodbye

As I lay by your side and hold you tonight,
I want you to understand,
This love that I feel is so right and so real,
And I realize how lucky I am.
And should you ever wonder if my love is true,
Theres something that I wanna make clear to you.

Theres no way I could make it without you,
Theres no way that Id even try,
If I had to survive, without you in my life,
I know I wouldnt last a day,
Oh baby, theres no way.

It means so much to me, whenever I see,
That "wanting me look" in your eyes,
I dont know how I could do without,
Holding you close every night.
Ive waited so long just to have you to hold,
And now that Ive got you, Ill never let go.

Theres no way I could make it without you,
Theres no way that Id even try,
If I had to survive, without you in my life,
I know I wouldnt last a day,
Oh baby, theres no way.

I never knew until you, what I was missing,
Now you say forever, and I find my heart is listening.
Yes Im listening.

Theres no way I could make it without you,
Theres no way that Id even try,
If I had to survive, without you in my life,
I know I wouldnt last a day,
Oh baby, theres no way.

Baby, theres just no way.

The factories are all shut down and the shopping malls are all closed
And the busy streets are all empty except for the falling snow
And in the small towns, in the cities families gather as one
Cause the night of love and sharing they look forward to has come

Cause tonight is Christmas, tonight is love
Tonight we celebrate Gods one and only Son
Tonight theres hope for peace on earth eternally
Tonight is Christmas and the worlds in harmony

But across the seas two armies stare down at each others guns
Each believing in their cause enough to die or kill the other one
But tonight therell be no shooting, not a drop of blood will spill
They will cease their fire this silent night in the name of peace and goodwill

Cause tonight is Christmas, tonight is love
Tonight we celebrate Gods one and only Son
Tonight theres hope for peace on earth eternally
Tonight is Christmas and the worlds in harmony

Too much love
Too much love

At times I make you crazy
At times I make you sad
Sometimes you make me feel like
Theres no one quite as bad

But theres just too much love between us
Theres just too mcuh love between us

We can work it out
Oh, I know we can
Cause its all left in our hands
If we give ourselves just a little time
Itll all work out just fine

Cause theres just too much love between us
Yeah, theres just too much love between us

Silence can be deafening
When you dont make a sound
At times you make me wonder
Why you want me around

I guess theres too much love between us
Theres just too much love between us

There are rocky roads
And its touch and go
And there are times to be alone
But theres something deeper
That we cant explain
Its an everylasting flame

Now theres just too much love between us
Now theres just too much love between us
Theres just too much love between us
Theres just too much love between us

Too much love between us
Too much love between us
Too much love
Too much love between us
Too much
Too much love
Too much love between us
Too much love between us
Yes there is
Too much love between us
Too much love
Too much love between us
Too much love between us

Twentieth Century

Oh, the twentieth century wasnt all that bad
It was a time like no one else has ever had
We learned to drive, we learned to fly
We sent a man into the sky
When he walked on the moon, we were so glad
Yeah, the twentieth century wasnt all that bad

Yeah, the twentieth century was quite a ride
We had to learn to see the other side
We had demonstrations and liberations
Great depressions and good vibrations
And doors that once were closed were opened wide
Oh, the twentieth century was quite a ride

We had movin pictures and radio
And Broadway, country, rock and roll
In 1900, whod a bet wed all be surfing on the internet

Yeah, the twentieth century was a heck of a show
We all had our fifteen minutes, dont you know
Assembly lines, celebrities, the spotlight shined on you and me
And everybody got a standin O
Yeah, the twentieth century was a heck of a show

From blocks of ice to air-condition
Telegraph to television
In 1900, whod a known we all wind up with pocket phones

The twentieth century wasnt all that long
Just a hundred years has come and gone
We cant go back even if we try
So Ill just smile and wave goodbye
To see it leavin makes me kinda sad
It was a time like no one else has ever had
Oh, the twentieth century wasnt all that bad

The twentieth century
Bye-bye

The twentieth century
Goodbye

She said, "I spent eight years in California
Thats the reason why I talk the way I do
But Ive heard how Southern men respect the ladies
And Id like to meet a gentleman like you"

Well, I spent most of my life in Alabama
Thats the reason why I talk the way I do
And Ive always had this thing for sun-tanned ladies
And Id really like to spend some time with you

And we walked on the beach till early morning
And we watched as the sun came up again
And somehow we both shared the feelin
That wed just made a very special friend

Tomorrow Ill go back to Alabama
And youll fly from Atlanta to L.A.
And Ill get back to takin care of busness,
And youll go back to starrin on the stage

But well think of the beach come Monday morning
When both of us get back to push and shove
And somehow we will always remember
The night we shared a very special love

I spent most of my life in Alabama
Thats the reason why I talk the way I do
I know we shared a very special friendship
The night we made a very special love

We were all we ever wanted
Before there was a single brick in this wall
That keeps the distance here between us
We built a life but we forgot we already had it all

When we made love, we made love
Baby, we had something that nothing else could touch
We made love

Through the lonely that divides us
And I can feel you reachin from the other side
Lets tear this wall down and start over
And get back to, oh that simple life

When we made love, we made love
Baby, we had something that nothing else could touch
We made love

Were just past the doubt, beyond the hurt
Were not too far from where we were

When we made love, we made love
Baby, weve got something that nothing else can touch
When we made love

Early morning and as I rise
you wont even open your eyes
You used to love this time together
Now you wont even say goodbye
With the passin time Ive watched you change
My love for you still remains the same
Your love for me used to come so easy
Now it seldom comes at all

Could it be were really over
Has all the lovin gone
Is it finlly time to face the hurt
Ive dreaded for so long
Tell me what in the name of love
Have I done wrong

I hope in time well find a way
To bring our lovin back someday
If your new lifes not what you expected
Call and Ill come back home
I hate to leave but Ive got to go
Dont ask why Im sure you know
Your love for me I cant share with another
It hurts me so

Could it be were really over
Has all the lovin gone
Is it finlly time to face the hurt
Ive dreaded for so long
Tell me what in the name of love
Have I done wrong

Could it be were really over
Has all the lovin gone
Is it finlly time to face the hurt
Ive dreaded for so long
Tell me what in the name of love
Have I done wrong

Early morning and as I rise
You wont even open your eyes
Your love for me used to come so easy
Now it seldom comes at all

Theres a light in your eyes tonight
You know Id know that look anywhere
Youve got plans and Im one lucky man
Before we get so carried away
Theres just something Ive been wanting to say

When we make love
Its more to me than just an affair
I want you to know how much I care
When we make love
Oh its such a precious time
We share our hearts, our souls, and our minds
When we make love

Watching you make your little moves
I can tell its gonna be a long night
All day long, we keep holding on
It couldnt be any better than this
I got it all at my fingertips


When we make love
Its more to me than just an affair
I want you to know how much I care
When we make love
Oh its such a precious time
We share our hearts, our souls, and our minds
When we make love

These moments.....these feelings.......Mmmmmmm

When we make love
Its more to me than just an affair
I want you to know how much I care
When we make love
Oh its such a precious time
We share our hearts, our souls, and our minds
When we make love

Now lets make love......Sweet love

Why lady why cant I leave you alone
I try lady try but the feelings too strong
You stay on my mind feel just like a fool
Why lady why cant I get over you

Why lady why it was easy before
I try lady try but it aint easy no more
To be on my way would be the best thing to do
Why lady why cant I get over you

Why lady why cant I leave you alone
I try lady try but the feelings too strong
To be on my way would be the best thing to do
Why lady why cant I get over you

Its almost summer you know and I cant wait to go
Diggin my toes in the sand
Spendin long summer days soakin up some rays
To the sound of a reggae band

My baby looks so good but I knew she would
And Im so glad shes mine
Im gonna kiss her again while the waves roll in
Its just a wonderful waste of time

Oooh, put all our cares behind us
Wrapped in each others arms is where youll find us

Kickin back on a beach with my lover in reach
Holdin her hand in mine
Crazy things that we do may not matter to you
Its just a wonderful waste of time

Ooooh, were dancin a hole to China
Even though were on a beach in Carolina

Ooooh, moonlight walks by the ocean
Ooooh, theres no need to control our emotions

I wanna tell you my friend Id like to do it again
Theres no reason or rhyme
Spendin time on the shore, Id like to do it some more
Its just a wonderful waste of time

Yes, its just a wonderful waste of time, just a wonderful waste of time
A wonderful waste of time, its a wonderful waste of time
A wonderful waste of time, a wonderful waste of time
A wonderful waste of time, a wonderful waste of time
