Even If If Breaks Your Heart
Way back on the radio dial
The fire got lit inside a bright eyed child
Every note just wrapped around his soul
From steel guitars to Memphis all the way to rock and roll
Oh I can hear 'em playin
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Oh I can hear 'em singing
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart
Every Other Memory
I have this vision in my head
Of your little black suitcase lying on the bed
You standing by the window staring into space
Looking everywhere but the tears rolling down my face
Filling up the room with silence so we wouldn't have to say goodbye
But every other memory
I have of you is good
And if I could rewind time
I hope you know I would
Oh if you wonder if I ever stop and think of you and me
How Quickly You Forget
I remember when your heart depended on me
What was perfect for you, was perfect for me
If something happened we could shake it off
Like we were cut same cloth
And I remember when your heart depended on me
Now you're tellin' everyone
You've made it on your own
Oh but who's the one who loved you when you couldn't be loved
I Love You
Some people wish, some people dance, some never take the chance.
Some people steal, just for the thrill and some drink to get their fill.
But I love You.
Some people preach, some people write, some chose to just stay quiet.
Some people teach, some people roam, some would rather be alone.
But I Love You. Yeah
Some people hurt, some people laugh, some just don't know what they have.
But I Love You. Baby, I Love You yeah.
My Old Man's Son
I know there something about me
I didn't know
I didn't see
Back when I tend to take for granted
The ones who made a man of me
That kid I was
He had no clue
That he'd make the man standing right here in front of you
I was born my old mans son
My momma's secret weapon
Heartache hurts and you can't move on
Blue skies fade to a gray sky dawn
Trying to find a place in this town
Where you don't feel six feet underground
You're so tired, you're so scared
Defeated by the troubles you can't repair
When this world comes crashing you don't have to look away
Don't have to give up no don't let the angels play
A sad song to carry you home it wont be long you discover
The sun still hangin' in the sky
And the world is wide awake outside
And I know there's things we need to do
But I just want to draw the blinds and...
Oh won't you let me pull you into me
Go wherever all these kisses lead
Turn down the bed
Turn out the lights and
I'm a runner that's what I do don't be surprised when I run from you when
You turn around I'll be gone.
I wont leave cuz of something ya said nobody will know which way that I
Beat ya to the door before you get the chance
It aint the falling in love I'm scared of it aint the moonlight shining in
Your eyes it aint the falling baby cuz the fallin I've always liked
I'm good at being lonely lonely's all I got
It aint the fallin in love that'll kill me, it's the sudden stop
Love me now we can't wast time I'm not the kind who likes to stay all night
So, this was not how you planned it.
No, oh you don't understand it.
Why, is it so misleading?
When all you really wanted became so defeating.
Time, well it only got harder
Thought you had one but it was another.
Then, you believed in a breakthrough
But it took you by surprise when you came out a fool.
War On A Desperate Man
Between heaven and hell the devil in me,
Burned another bridge on the family tree,
You take the bottle from my hand and the whiskey off my breath,
Tell me is there really anything left,
There's a limit to livin' on Gods green earth,
I'm still tryin' to figure what that's worth,
Not makin' any choices I'm just makin' mistakes,
Livin' in a world where the sinners are saints,
