All The Women I Am
Mhmmm, Mhmmm, Owwww, Yeahhhhhh!
Well I can summon up my courage. Take on the whole world. Turn around and break down just like a little girl. And I come out swingin' when my back's against the wall.
And my Mama always told me better walk before you crawl. I need a man who can love all the women I am.
I'm a mother of lost causes. A sister of the road. I give my heart to a song, but I never sell my soul. I'm good at keeping it together when the edges start to fray.
When I'm sewing up the loose ends of everyday. I need a man who can love all the women I am.
A Little Want To
There ain't no excuse that's what my mama said
You gotta get up and get outta bed
Roll up your sleeves put your back into it
If your gonna get it done then you better get to it
No matter what it is you want to do
You got to have a little want to
Inside of you
That goes a long, long way
A little nothing I can't do... Attitude
No matter what folks say
If I Were A Boy
If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I'd roll out of bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it
Cause they stick up for me
Met an old man yesterday
Next to me on a westbound plane
He said "I was married sixty years
I swear it feels like she's still here."
Then he took out a picture
Staring at that black and white
The tears filled up in his eyes
I said "You were a lucky man."
He said "I feel like I still am."
The Bridge You Burn
Better hang on to that matchbook with his number on it
But not for the reason you think
There'll come a day girl that you're gonna want it
To light the past up in flames
He's the lesson you learn
He's the dead end you see when you realize you made a wrong turn
He's that one last look back when you finally get over the hurt
He's the bridge you burn
He's the bridge you burn
No you're not the first one to think they can change him
The Day She Got Divorced
"The Day She Got Divorced" lyrics:
She got up and put her makeup on
Made a pot of coffee extra strong
At the kitchen table sucking on a cigarette
Read the paper in a cloud of smoke
While the dirty dinner dishes soaked
Woke up the kids and coaxed them out of bed
Then she burnt the toast just like the day before
Turn On The Radio
No good, two timin',
Lies comin' outta your mouth.
Cheatin', miss treatin', games
That you played brought you down.
Broke my heart.
Tore it apart.
Look who's got the last laugh now.
Don't you come crawlin' back.
Beggin' please, on your knees.
Baby, if you're missin' me.
When Love Gets A Hold Of You
It's all around you now, but you don't know it
It's tugging at your heart, but you don't show it
It's just a matter of time
It's gonna hit you right between the eyes
You'll wake up in the middle of the night
I'll be the only thing on your mind
Won't be able to shake it loose
When love gets a hold of you
Before you have your first cup of coffee
You're gonna pick up the phone and call me
When You Have A Child
When you have a child
You learn it's a serious business
To have a little fun
You give grace and get forgiveness
Not seven times seven
But seven times seventy one
And when you have a child
Those four walls you call a house
Take on a life of it's own
