I'll Be Gone 02:29
Verse Took a while before I could tell You're a cold hearted man with a pretty shell Don't know how I let you cast your spell It was a total eclipse of my senses Verse You give your love in tiny bits You come and go in starts and fits Your Indian summer has remit To a long and lonely winter Chorus This silence is louder than any words you ever said I'm trying to drown it out but it's like thunder in my head After all these years of loving you I'm leaving you come dawn When you find something to say I'll be gone Verse I'm leavin you can't hardly wait Gonna rid myself of all this hate Drive my car right through that gate And find my liberation Verse My lips are wet n ready for kissin I'm sitting in a pole position To find me a little of what I've been missin Ain't no one gonna stop me Chorus This silence is louder than any words you ever said I'm trying to drown it out but it's like thunder in my head After all these years of loving you I'm leaving you come dawn When you find something to say I'll be gone Bridge Don't look for me don't call my name I'm moving on, gonna stake my claim Make something sweet from all this sorrow You can take this bitter pill and swallow Chorus This silence is louder than any words you ever said I'm trying to drown it out but it's like thunder in my head After all these years of loving you I'm leaving you come dawn When you find something to say I'll be gone

Heartstrings 03:36
Chorus Got a million things Pullin' on my heart strings Cause my love is gone Verse My love is gone and I'm having trouble moving on There's so much I can't forget Like his kiss, his kiss, well of course that's what I miss And from anyone else's lips a kiss ain't got no bliss, no Chorus Got a million things Pullin' on my heart strings Cause my love is gone Verse There's a long line of pretty boys tryin' to treat me kind Only one thing's on my mind It's his touch, his touch, well that's what I miss so much And I'm waitin' on another man whose love can measure up Chorus Got a million things Pullin' on my heart strings Cause my love is gone Verse I know this song's been sung a thousand times or more But all I'm asking for Is some skin on my skin, oh where do I begin I know it won't be long 'fore I feel it once again Chorus Got a million things Pullin’ on my heart strings Cause my love is gone My love is gone My love is gone

You Can Lie 02:50
Verse Maybe I shouldn't call you on nights like these I'm running out of ways to set my mind at ease But in the morning, I'll be on my way Don't worry babe, cause I won't wanna stay Chorus And you can lie to me, but don't bother Cause either way I won't believe you And after all that I have been through I ain't lookin for love anyway Verse So hold me baby yeah let me feel your touch We'll take comfort in each other, but not too much Cause I'm warning you there's a price to pay Don't ask me to cause I ain't gonna stay Chorus And you can lie to me, but don't bother Cause either way I won't believe you And after all that I have been through I ain't lookin for love anyway Bridge Why should we pretend I know how this will end Baby I've learned better than to believe in forever Chorus So go on lie to me, it don't matter Cause either way I won't believe you And after all that I have been through I ain't lookin for love anyway Yeah I ain't lookin for love anyway

Nice Girl 02:37
Verse I charmed you with my pretty smile now didn't I And I charmed you with my understanding eyes What I'm about to tell you might come as a surprise But sooner or later you'll find out that sometimes Chorus I wanna scream and yell and run like hell and play it really loud So think twice before you come my way I ain't always such a nice girl Verse And I wish I could have expensive fancy things But my closet's all filled up with skeletons I'm not so speedy to forgive but I can be quick to judge Sometimes I like to hold on to a grudge Chorus And scream and yell and run like hell and play it really loud So think twice before you come my way I ain't always such a nice girl Verse I get jealous of other people's love I can't help it Sometimes I wish your pretty man was mine I screen my calls when I'm at home with nothing else to do Cause I don't feel like talking to you Chorus I wanna scream and yell and run like hell and play it really loud So think twice before you come my way I ain't always such a nice girl Bridge And maybe it'll come back to haunt me Maybe it'll come back to haunt me Verse Don't get me wrong it's not that I'm a fake I have a nicer side but some rules I like to break You can judge me all you like but at least I'll sing it free I ain't all that I am cracked up to be Chorus I wanna scream and yell and run like hell and play it really loud Cmon cmon and come my way I ain't always such a nice girl Ain't always such a nice girl I ain't always such a nice girl

Verse Life is a river Meant to carry me So why was I standing still? It took something stronger To sweep me off my feet And it's carrying me still Chorus I don't know what you do to me But I like it, what you do I am yours to do with as you please All I know is what you do You do so nice and easy So won't you keep on doing what you do to me Verse If I was lost You helped me find Where I was meant to be Now I can never go back To that place I left behind After what you've done to me Chorus I don't know what you do to me But I like it, what you do I am yours to do with as you please All I know is what you do You do so nice and easy So won't you keep on doing what you do to me Bridge Touch me, love me the whole night through All I can tell you is Chorus What I know is what you do to me And I like it, what you do I am yours to do with as you please All I know is what you do You do so nice and easy So won't you keep on doing what you do to me Keep on doing what you do to me

Verse Lately I’ve been having trouble getting out of bed Cause my neck ain’t strong enough to hold my head Too much swimming round it’s clogging up the drain It bubbles up and boils over soaks into my brain Verse When I lay down at night I can’t leave the day behind It sticks with me sickens me and sleep is hard to find Awake I lay, awake I stay, I wait for night to end I wait for light to start this thing all over again Chorus I've been tryin to remember There's things I’d better forget I'm trying to find some piece of mind I sure ain't got it yet Verse There’s gotta be a way to thicken up this skin To keep the bad stuff out and let good the stuff in I know the past gone and future I can’t see Life is now so why is that the hardest place to be Chorus I've been tryin to remember There's things I better forget I'm trying to find some piece of mind I sure ain't got it yet Bridge None of this is new And most of the time there ain’t nothing I can do I gotta find a way To drown my demons at bay Verse I ain’t gonna do it with a powder or a potion And there ain't no use to run away in crazy constant motion I'll find peace in waging a different kind of war I'll raise my voice to sing and I’ll hold onto this guitar Chorus Ill keep tryin to remember There's things I better forget I'm trying to find some piece of mind I sure ain't got it yet Well I sure ain't got it yet

Verse I know I just arrived here but I don't think I can stay See my mind keeps running northward to keep my soul at bay I know there's something ailing me, a reason why I hurt And I gotta leave this pavement for the dirt Chorus So I'll go through a tunnel come out on a bridge Take me high over a river across a Tennessee ridge No rest will I take until I reach that northern town And I find you in the darkness and I lay my burden down Verse Long days in August haze this summer craze has led To all this fire in my blood and thunder in my head Until that sweet September comes I'll look to northern skies To wash all this burning from my eyes Chorus So I'll go through a tunnel come out on a bridge Take me high over a river across a Tennessee ridge No rest will I take until I reach that northern town And I find you in the darkness and I lay my burden down Bridge I've been waiting for to find you here It feels like a lifetime since I've had you near Verse Will you tell me about your summer, and I'll tell you of mine Can we take the future in our hands and leave it all behind You’ll hold me in this quiet night and rock me to and fro I'll wish I didn't have to let you go I wonder how I'll ever let you go Chorus After I went through a tunnel came out on a bridge Took me high over a river across a Tennessee ridge No rest could I take until I reached you in this town And you held me in the darkness and you laid my burden down

Verse Went running in the rain I'm soggy and wet Had a worried mind but now I forget It washed away my frown and fret Left me happy and soggy and wet Chorus Some days I got nothing but the blues Other days I'm just so easily amused Verse Went out in the cold to play in the snow Had a worried soul, why I don't know It cooled right down my hot hot head Left me cool and calm again Chorus Some days I got nothing but the blues Other days I'm just so easily amused Bridge And the sun came out and kissed my skin I knew I could begin again The rain and the snow showed me through Cheered me up when I was blue Chorus Some days I got nothing but the blues Other days I'm just so easily amused

Intro By the light of this lonesome moon I'm dreaming of our dreamy afternoon And I'd wonder what you'd say If I told you I feel this way Verse Daylight is now to dusk Can't stop thinking of us So I'm singing this tune And I'm dreaming of our dreamy afternoon Chorus I'd wonder what you'd say If I told you I feel this way Verse Remember that day in June The air was thick in the bayou I swear you felt it too But maybe I'm just dreaming up that dreamy afternoon Chorus I wonder what you'd say If I told you I feel this way Verse Dance with me, put your hand in mine This pounding in my chest'll keep us in time Kiss me slow So I can know your taste before you go Chorus I'd wonder if you'd stay If I told you I feel this way Well I don't know what you'll say When I tell you I feel this way

Song For Amy 03:43
Verse Summer heat weighed down the air until it lost hold and fell Dense rain on my window woke me from this sleepy spell The peaceful innocence of slumber gave way to a violent dawn Assaulting me again as I realize you are gone Chorus In my grief I know it's so much better where you are I feel your spirit lifting me, carrying me from afar Verse Memories are all around the steps that I retrace I recollect them sweep them up into a sacred place I play them like a feature film on a big screen in my mind And smile to myself as the tears fall from my eyes Chorus In my grief I know it's so much better where you are I feel your spirit lifting me, carrying me from afar Verse The sun, heavy in the sky, falls slowly to the ground I'll think of you a thousand times before it touches down I'll sing this song to ease our pain while hand in hand we mourn Through these words we'll come together, in this melody you'll be reborn Chorus We have our peace in knowing it's so much better where you are We feel your spirit lifting us, carrying us from afar
