Loaded up the car and said goodbye
Looked at that old school one last time
No more homework and tears
And I'll miss the friends that I made here
Chorus: But I'm almost home, where they meet you with a smile and open arms
I'm almost home, where you never see a stranger and folks know who you are
I'm almost home, where I'll be welcomed like a star
I've been waiting for the day and I've been dreaming of your face
and I'm almost home
You placed your hand in mine
And I saw you smile
We walked for a while
Until the sun disappeared behind
I love to hear you sing
The way you laugh at me
We sat in that old swing,
And you say you'll never leave
Chorus: Then I woke up, It was just a dream
Her daddy raised tobacco
He was a hard workin' man
There was kindness in his smile
And there was strength in his hands
She can't remember much about him
Just his name makes her smile
He was supposed to live forever
And it was hard to say goodbye
Chorus: Some days are like a train
He goes out at night, comes home when he wants to
Nobody to tell him what to do, yeah
He drinks 'til the doors close
Brings another girl home
In the morning light, his tears fall again
Chorus: Every day, haunted by what might have been
When night time falls he ties one on again
He chose to have his parties and his friends and a life of sin
How much fun it is for him
Miles of highway, between me and my home
I think about you, when it rains and I'm alone
Another day, another memory
The sun disappears
Another morning without you and I...
cry another tear
Chorus: What I want might not make me happy
What I do might bury me
What I'm chasing might not ever happen
I''ll Remember You
Couldn't stand all the pain, you caused, love was gone
I know you didn't mean to hurt me, but you were cold ,
like a stone
I didn't wanna see, a day without you
Chorus: and I'll move on, I'll never see you again
I'll be strong, I'm gonna ride the wind
The rain is gone, andthe sun is my friend
and I'll remember you
I Can't Win For Losin'
I've waited all my life to find that special someone
Someone I could call my own
Someone to stick by me through good times and bad
No more playing games, I'd never be alone
Someone stole my heart and then he ran away
I gave the best I had to give
I need somebody whose not in it for the taking
Someone who needs me as long as we will live
Chorus: But I can't, win for losin'
Hey little bluebird, how are you?
Is it fun to fly in a sky of blue?
Is it fun to sit and keep an eye on me?
As much as I enjoy to watch you in the summer breeze
Hey little bluebird, why do you stay?
Through all the months of winter and all the snowy days?
Why don 't you fly where the sun is warm for you?
When it's cold outside what do you do?
I can't erase the miles or the lines on my face
There's no need for me to wonder where I might have been
I can't get nowhere without this lonesome road
andI can't remember what happened to my friends
Chorus: This lonesome highway and the wasted miles I've gone
Lonesome highway, leads away from home and tomorrow
I'll be here again
On this lonesome highway, where I've never been
A man in the parking lot, down on his luck
Came and asked if I could spare a few bucks
I shoulda helped him, I shoulda cared
So before I fell asleep I said a little prayer
He must have no one to stand behind his dreams
No matter how crazy they seem
He must be scared, and alone
Begging for a dollar, searching for a home
Chorus: Without a family like mine
Memories & Dreams
I used to see my Daddy every day
He used to race me in the Carolina sun
Back when he was a young man
And he could plow the fields until the day was done
Mama played piano for the choir
Every Sunday afternoon she cooked my favorite things
After church we rode a dozen miles
On old forgotten pathways, now overgrown with trees
Chorus: Home is not the same place that it was
My Poor Old Heart
Don't expect too much from my poor old heart
You can blame the unforgiven for my scars
You might just be the best that I can find
But I can't seem.....
To forget the tears I've cried
Chorus: I don't know that I will ever love again
It's the price that I must pay for all my sins
Time has changed me and left me full of doubt
and my heart may be lost, never to be found
Never Gonna Change
You will never settle down
You'll be ramblin' all around
'Til they put you in the cold, hard ground
You will never settle down
You got leavin' on your mind
You leave me lonesome all the time
Grass is greener on the other side
You got leavin' on your mind
Same Old Me
Remember when it was fun, to stay up all night long
We stayed out in the sun, until those summer days were gone
Remember dressing fine, for a crazy hometown Friday night
We'd get a little wild, come Sundays we were back in line
Chorus: Remember me I'm laughing..... crazy, young and wild and free
Remember me I'm dancing .......and times are changing but I'm still the same old me
Remember when it was fun, to write a little note to your best friend
About the one who stole your heart , and what was going down on the weekend
We were reckless wild and free
It was like a crazy dream
When I found my way to you
We both had so much to lose
We broke so many hearts
We tried to be apart
We wasted so much time
We even tried to say goodbye
What I'm Looking For
It's a cold world, sometimes I feel all alone
It's a long road, that I'm rolling on
And I wonder, if I'm on the path I should have taken
And I'm still here, even though my heart is breakin'
Someday I'm gonna find what I'm looking for
Someday I'll find my place in this world
Someday I'm gonna know why I'm here
When Love Comes Back Again
Have you ever, felt the sting of a broken heart?
Were you watching, while your whole world fell apart?
Have you wondered, how things might have been?
But aint it funny?
When loves comes back again
Have you mastered,
The art of looking strong?
When you're dying, but you never let it show
Have you pretended, you're the best you've ever been?
Where Are You Darlin'
Out there in a sea of lights, and strangers rushing in the night
I'm lonesome for a time
When I had you and felt complete, and then you sailed away from me
Along with all my dreams
I can't go on, I can't go back
I find that I am lost again
Tired of starting all over again
Chorus: Where are you darlin'?
Do you think of me?
Blew out the candles and made a wish
And I hoped it would come true
I had a feeling, that I was dreaming
When I wished for you
Chorus: I wish that you were here
I wish you could see my tears
And I wish I was on your mind,
But if wishes were horses, dreamers would ride
I wanna be with you, when the day is done
I wanna be with you, when the flowers come
I wanna be with you, when the leaves turn brown
I wanna be with you, when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
I wanna ride with you, in the summer wind
I wanna hold your hand, and be your friend
I wanna run with you, in the August rain,
And make you laugh, and make you stay
Will you stay?
