(CDJ/Bobby Pinson)

Jenny's got Jack tacked up on the freezer
Jack's got Jenny in the back of his mind
She'd do anything to see him
He'll see her when he's got time…yeah
He called her up last minute for dinner
She put her friends on the burner in the back
They tell her she don't know what she's in for
She tells them they don't know Jack
And she'll make it up to them
So she stands them up again

Love and negotiation
Makes the world go round
At the bottom of the situation
When you break it down
It's all about
Love and negotiation

I've kissed a few Jack's back in my day
Turned a few princes into toads
I traded in all my lonely
For a six foot dead end road….yeah
I got my knight in rusty armor
He still gets his night out with the guys
I try hard not to be his mother
He knows I can put up a pretty good fight
To get my way
It's a give and take

Repeat Chorus

We plant our feet
We draw the line
The line moves from time to time
We always try to keep our minds open

Repeat Chorus

. . .


(CDJ/Sunny Russ)

I am from a tiny town
Where I learned how to tough it out
Where I kicked the dirt and my dreams around
To conquer the whole world
My uncle slipped me fifty bucks
Some rolled there eyes and wished me luck
Yeah I spent the first night in the cab of my truck
And I am still that girl

I like a challenge, I like to fly
I'm not always perfect, I'm not always right
When I go to weddings
It always makes me cry
My heart is fragile, and I can be hurt
I can crumble inside at the drop of a word
But I can jump off a limb
Into a river of change
I'm taking back my brave

I kinda lost it for awhile
Had to force myself to smile
I quit going that extra mile
Abandoned my belief
And I spent hours on the phone
Crawling back to my comfort zone


Then I woke up one day and said I'm not running home
It's just not like me cause…

I like a challenge, I like to fly
I'm not always perfect, I'm not always right
Newborn babies always make me cry
My heart is fragile, and I can be hurt
I can crumble inside at the drop of a word
But I can jump off a limb
Into a river of change
I'm taking back my brave

I'm my momma's only girl
The child in the middle
I've been pushing the limits
Since I was little…..yeah

. . .


(CDJ/Kylie Sackley)

Full tank-a hot day
Ice cold gas station lemonade
Just to cool me off
My girlfriend-on the phone
Giving me the skinny on my brand new beau
I can always count on her to know what's going on
Tom Petty's singing me Free Fallin'
I hear summertime a callin'

I've got the sunshine and the blue sky up above
I got the blacktop under my wheels
I got big dreams
And I got people that I love
And there ain't nothin' wrong
I got a good day goin' on

Windows-way down
Smell of sweet honeysuckle all around
I just have to breathe in
Look left-look right
Look to see the scenery is outta sight
It just doesn't get better than this
No sense of time-no direction
Just gonna bask in this perfection

Repeat Chorus

Got a good, got a good, got a good day
Got a good, got a good, got a good day

Hey, hey throw your hands up
If you're feeling the beat
And you're having some fun
Hey, hey throw your hands up
If you gotta good day goin' on

Repeat Chorus

. . .


(CDJ /Tom Shapiro)

I'm picturing me in your arms tonight
I'm starting to taste your lips against mine
It's nothin' you're doing
It's something I'm feeling
I've never felt before
You're sitting here talking
While I'm busy dreaming 'bout so much more

You got me thinkin' things
Imagining
Everything that's possible later
When it's just the two of us
I'm curious
Baby what's waiting behind those eyes
Yeah when you look into mine
You got me thinkin' things

When did my heart change I don't know
This isn't a place I thought that I'd go
I'm thinking that I'm not the only one
Who's walked across that line
The way that you're smiling
Is saying I read what's on your mind

Repeat Chorus twice…

. . .


(CDJ)

We all have dreams
Imagine things
Who we want to be
Straight to the top
Don't give up, don't stop
Be perfect visually

I don't have to be the girl that turns everyone's head
I don't have to be behind the number one door
I don't have to be everybody's favourite
But I definitely have to be
Have to be yours
I have to be yours

I wanna make you laugh
The best you've ever had
I wanna be your last
Be your every need
Your everything
Your future and your past

Repeat Chorus

I got one wish

And it is this
I will be the one that you will run to when your looking for love
Cause I will love you
I will love you
Like you've never been before
I promise this if I am yours

I don't have to be the girl
Don't have to be the girl
Oh but I have to be yours
I have to be yours
I don't have to be the girl that turns everyone's head
But I have to be your favorite

. . .



The hopeful possibilities
Have come and gone away
We've both run out of reasons to stay
Who we are and who we thought we were has somehow changed
We kept trying anyway

It's just not gonna work
It's just not gonna fly
We've been frozen on the edge
Staring at good-bye
We've both reached for the stars
Shared the victories, shared the scars
Made each other's dreams come true
I never thought I'd do
My dreaming without you

You'll go one way, I'll go mine
And take some awkward steps
Almost free except for these regrets
Moving one's the only thing that we have left to do
No one can say we didn't see this through
But…

Repeat Chorus

I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you

We've both reached for the stars
Shared the victories, shared the scars
Made each other's dreams come true
I never thought I'd do
My dreaming without you

. . .


(CDJ/Gordie Sampson/Troy Verges)

Familiar, this sounds so familiar
You tell me I'm a drama queen
You act like you don't care
You look right past me
Like I was a ghost
Someone you don't even know
I don't know why I still love you
When all you do is make me

Cry, cry, cry baby
I don't know why, I think you're gonna save me
You just stand and watch my tears hit the floor
Like it doesn't even matter anymore
I don't really wanna leave tonight
But I don't wanna be your
Crybaby

Lonely, I can take being lonely
I've kinda gotten used to it
You treat me like you don't know me
Well maybe you never did
They say there's nothin' to it

Someone's gotta do it
So I'm telling you goodbye
And all I wanna do is…

Repeat Chorus

I don't really wanna leave tonight
And it rips me apart inside
But I'm not gonna be your crybaby
No I'm not gonna be your cry, crybaby

You just stand and watch my tears hit the floor
Like it doesn't even matter anymore
I don't really wanna leave tonight
But I don't wanna be your crybaby

. . .


(CDJ /Jeffrey Steele)

I shouldn't be missin' you
It makes no sense
Should be wearing I'm-over-you boots
And goin' dancin'
I'm having one of those, one of those days
God knows I've had a few
But I know that it's temporary

I've got a good life now
But every once in awhile I have a little
Breakdown
It ain't no big thing
I'll be driving along and hear a song we used to sing
And get lost
Yeah I have to stop
Cause I get all caught up in the sound
I have a little breakdown

I think it's over and done
Then I lose control
But when you've given your heart to someone
It's inevitable
The first thing you never learn about love
Is that you never really let it go
I'm a walking contradiction

Repeat Chorus

Breakdown
Have a little breakdown
I lose sleep, but hey I can always catch up the next day
A few tears, everyone needs a good cry now and then, anyway….yeah

Repeat Chorus

I shouldn't be missin' you
It makes no sense
Should be wearing I'm-over-you boots
And going dancin'

. . .


(CDJ/Matraca Berg)

I'd like to sleep in on Saturdays
But I hate to miss the good yard sales
In my dreams I pay a buck for matching lawn chairs
I don't like people who are rude to waitresses
I like to leave a big tip 'cause God knows I've been there

I ain't no angel baby, far from it!
But I never broke a heart, just for the fun of it
That's all you need to know
A little mystery is not so bad
What you don't know won't hurt you, I can promise that
That's all you need to know right now

I used to cruise down on main street
I wished I had my own boyfriend
I like to watch your hands while you're driving
I like the way you smile when no one's watching
I have to catch myself here I go flying

There's so much more……and it's all worth waiting for!

. . .


(CDJ/Mary Danna/Shaye Smith)

If he doesn't call when he says he'll call
Or if he doesn't even call at all
Well he just might not be that into you

If he's too busy to see you on the weekends
And he doesn't introduce you to his friends
Well he just might not be that into you

Cause if he was
He'd be hangin' on your every word
He'd put away his little black book and put you first
He'd be doing double back flips to make it work…..out

If he's a month late for your birthday
Or if he calls you by another girl's name
Well he just might not be that into you

Repeat Chorus

If he says he's not the marrying type
And he only calls you in the middle of the night
Well he just might not be that into you

Yeah, yeah

I got your back, yeah
You gotta listen, girl
If you're not the centre of his world
He's not that into you, yeah

Repeat Chorus

If he says she's just a friend, like a sister
Then one day you see him up and kiss her
Well he just might not be that into you
Yeah you just might wanna find somebody new
Yeah that's what I would do
Girl if I were you

Yeah, yeah, find somebody new
Yeah he's not that into you
Yeah, yeah, girl find somebody new
You know you're gonna find someone out there who loves everything about you
It's so great
Just hold out
It's worth it

. . .


(CDJ/Mary Danna)

I'm staring out the window
On a bright and sunny day
And even though it's beautiful
To me it still looks grey
The condition of my heart is in a desolate state

There's nothin' good about lonely
It hurts like hell
And although I've never been down there
I've felt enough pain to know it just as well
I feel so empty
Without you here to hold me
I'm trying so hard to be happy
But there's nothin' good about lonely

I thought a change of scenery
Would change my point of view
But even the magical ocean
Was just another shade of blue
Getting outta bed is getting harder to do

Repeat Chorus

. . .


(CDJ/Mary Danna)

I can't find a smile underneath the pain
Since you've been gone, there's been nothing but rain
I didn't want to be left behind

I know I'll see you someday
But it's hard to wait
And I know I'll have this heartache
That won't go away
Yeah it hurts
But I know
That you just got there first

I never thought we would run outta time
We were just getting going, we were starting to fly
So many things left undone

Repeat Chorus

I know you're waiting on the other side
I guess I'll get there when the time is right

Repeat Chorus
