Walk fast, you better walk fast
If you're gonna walk over me
'Cause I won't be a part of your plan
If you're gonna make a dog out of me

Talk fast you better talk fast
Hope you got something good to say
All ears pretty momma won't hear

But you've gotta play fair today
'Cause I don't wanna believe that
It's over, it's over

'Cause if you want me to love you
You better open up the door
And if you wanted to love me
You wouldn't leave me wanting more

'Cause all I wanted was to love you
I wanted to love you
Oh, don't you see me wanting more?

Think twice, you better think twice
Think you're gonna make a fool out of me
Back down, you better back down

Don't give me no third degree
'Cause I don't wanna believe that
It's over, it's really over, no

'Cause if you want me to love you
You better open up the door
And if you wanted to love me
You wouldn't leave me wanting more

'Cause all I wanted was to love you
I wanted to love you
Oh, don't you see me wanting more? Yeah

I never thought it would be easy
If this is it then please release me, no
Before we let it get too late

Got to find a better way
Before we let it get too late, little pretty
My pretty little thing

'Cause if you want me to love you
You better open up the door
And if you wanted to love me
You wouldn't leave me wanting more

'Cause all I wanted was to love you
I wanted to love you
Oh, don't you see me wanting more?

Oh, baby, don't you, don't you
See me wanting more?
Baby, don't you, don't you
See me wanting more love?

We got to find a better way
Before we let it get too late
Got to find a better way
We got to find a better way

We got to find a better way
We got to find a better way

. . .


I'm feeling it, I got a ton a time
You're movin' your body
I'm reeling in, I gotcha on my line
You won't swim away this time

'Cause you started it and you seem into it
Don't you dare act surprised

'Cause only you know what is on my mind
I wanna see you, I'm leaving on the lights
So don't go act all sweetness 'cause honey that's not right
Come on, you know oh oh, what is on my mind

You know the game, your wearing it
And you make the rules
I'm breaking out and it's feeling good
For sure you can't deny

'Cause you started it and you seem into it
Don't you dare act surprised

'Cause only you know what is on my mind
I wanna see you, I'm leaving on the lights
So don't go act all sweetness 'cause honey that's not right
Come on, you know oh oh

'Cause it's human nature girl, it's how we turn the world
What better way to know, that we're alive

Only you know what is on my mind
I wanna see you, so I'm leaving on the lights
Don't go act all sweetness 'cause honey that's not right
Come on, you know oh oh

You know what is on my mind
I wanna see you, I'm leaving on the lights
So don't go act all sweetness 'cause honey that's not right
Come on, you know oh oh, what is on my mind

So don't go act all sweetness 'cause honey that's not right
And don't go act all sweetness, you done this all night
So don't go act all sweetness 'cause honey that's not right
Come on, you know oh oh, what is on my mind

Oh baby, darlin', darlin', darlin' what is on my mind

. . .


Yeah, I found you there on my front steps
Mascara eyes and a threadbare dress
Said, "Is it okay if I stay for awhile?"

You were talking fast and feeling down
So you spent the week, he was out of town
Woke up alone, I should have known you'd be gone

I'm tired of being your other guy
I wanna be more than your good time

But your love is breaking my heart
Come on little pretty, let me out of your dark
Oh, isn't it a pity?

In a Cadillac with the backseat torn out
Looking back I should have turned it around
Love is breaking my heart, so let me go little pretty

Oh, tell me baby, what's your plan?
'Cause I don't really understand
There's got to be a way for me to get to you

Yeah, I got you in when you lost your key
And scored some pills so you could sleep
I went home, woke up alone thinking about you

I'm tired of being your other guy
I wanna be more than your good time

Because your love is breaking my heart
Come on little pretty, let me out of your dark
Oh, isn't it a pity?

In a Cadillac with the backseat torn out
Looking back I should have turned it around
Love is breaking my heart, so let me go little pretty

And don't you call me up when you're in need
And don't you baby 'cause I'm in too deep
I can barely breathe

And I'm tired of trying to tell you
That your love is breaking my heart

Come on little pretty
Let me out of your dark
Oh, isn't it a pity?

In a Cadillac with the backseat torn out
Looking back I should have turned it around
Now love is breaking my heart

Come on little pretty
Let me out of your dark
Oh, isn't it a pity?

In a Cadillac with the backseat torn out
Looking back I should have turned it around
Love is breaking my heart, so let me go little pretty, yeah

So let me go little pretty, yeah, yeah
So let me go little pretty, yeah
So let me go little pretty, yeah, yeah
So let me go little pretty
Breaking my heart, baby won't you go to sleep?

. . .


So in the meantime
You'll be resting on my mind
For the last time
I would leave myself behind

In the evenings
Raise a glass and tell some lies
Make a pass, impress another girl
She was easy on the eyes

She was easy
And so was I

My reflection
In the window when I ride
For Chicago
She is on the other side

Take a picture
Write a letter to my love
Well, I was almost honest
I was almost honest

Been a long time
Since I've lay with you in bed
Conversations
Full of words you never said

I got your message
But I didn't hear the ringing bell
I gave into the loneliness
But I didn't give them nothing else

Which direction
Down this highway that I ride
To Atlanta
She is on the other side

Take a picture
Write a letter to my love
I was almost honest
Well, I was almost honest
Yeah, oh

My reflection
In the window when I ride
Could not save us
But I swear to God I tried

Take a picture
Write a letter to my love
I was almost honest
But I was almost honest
'Cause I was almost honest

. . .


Everyone waits for a knock on the door
Waiting for someone, who knows what it's for
'Cause we spend a lot of money
Feeling bad and looking fine
I'll try to sum it up in a few simple lines

Oh, darling, life is what you pray for
But love is what you stay for
And I know it's pretty damn funny
How simple it can be
But you didn't hear that from me

Everyone says that it's covered in pain
Waiting for someone who'll take on the blame
Oh, it takes a lot of courage to know you're not alone
The sooner you stand up, the sooner you'll know

Oh, baby, life is what you pray for
But love is what you stay for
And I know it's pretty damn funny
How simple it can be
But you didn't hear that from me

When I hear you crying at night
Like the world is on your shoulders
I'll hold you tight, oh now
'Cause I know a secret or two
And the least I can do is share it with you

Share it with you
Share it, baby

Oh, life is what you pray for
And love is what you stay for
And I know it's pretty damn funny
How simple it can be
But you didn't hear that from me

(Life is what you pray for)
You didn't hear that from me
(Love is what you stay for)
You didn't hear that from me
(Life is what you pray for)

You didn't hear that from me
You didn't hear that from me

. . .


Highway ride on a cold dark night
And the sign says 20 miles to Georgia
2 a.m. coming, come again
Been too long and I wanna see my momma

Did she ever think she'd hear me say
After all the years I've been away
I know I'm getting older
Did she ever think she'd see the day
The day her boys had grown and gone away
Does she know she's getting older?

Momma's gonna cook me supper
And Georgia's gonna tuck me in
This town is gonna make me something special
I'm coming home again

Thursday night, see the front porch lights
Wooden sign says my house in on the market
It took me nineteen years, took one thousand years
Till I realized I don't belong to Georgia

Did she ever think she'd hear me say
After all the years I've been away
I know I'm getting older
Did she ever think she'd see the day
The day her boys had grown and gone away
Does she know she's getting older?

Momma's gonna cook me supper
And Georgia's gonna tuck me in
This town is gonna make me something special

She never saw the world, she could never go
Or any foreign shores, she would never go
She deserves so much more than she'll ever know
She'll ever know, oh

Momma's gonna cook me supper
Georgia's gonna tuck me in
This town is gonna make me something special

I'm coming home, I'm coming home again
I'm coming home, I'm coming home again
I'm coming home, I'm coming home baby
I'm coming home, Georgia's gonna tuck me in

I'm driving down the highway, checking the signs
Saying 20 miles away from the Georgia state line
Check it to the left, pass it on the right
Gonna make it home it if takes all night

Driving down the highway, checking the signs
Saying 20 miles away from the Georgia state line
Check it to the left, pass it on the right
Gonna make it home if it takes all night

. . .


Thunder, hard rain, I'm lonely
I know you're lonely too
Late night, thinking I need you
I know you need me too

So when you get the nerve
Just call and give the word
'Cause you're really something, baby, hey hey

I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
'Cause you're something, baby

I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
'Cause you're something, baby

When I'm touching you
Flawless, undressed, I'm nervous
I know you're nervous too
Motion, no rules, I'm learning
I know you're learning too

So when you get the nerve
Just call and give the word
'Cause you're really something, baby

When I get the urge
I'll give the love that you deserve
You're really something, baby, hey, hey, hey

I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
'Cause you're something, baby

I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
'Cause you're something, baby

Speak to me, woman, I got to hear you calling
And sing so I know what you're looking for
I might not give you what you want, little darling
But you better believe, I'm sure
Sure gonna give you what you need

So when you get the nerve
Just call and give the word
'Cause you're really something, baby, hey hey

And when I get the urge
I'll bring the love that you deserve
'Cause you're really something baby, hey hey

I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
'Cause you're something, baby

I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
I said lover, lover, I'm gonna come up
'Cause you're something baby, hey, hey

Wanting you feels so right, feels so nice

. . .


Sweet, sweet, magenta lips
Whispering another lie
What I wouldn't do for just one kiss
Follow her to the edge of life

And I know your shameless heart ain't true
And I know every move you make is cruel

Your shameless heart ain't true
I don't know where to start
There's nothing you won't do
It's tearing me apart

I could ride her curves to the moon
With childlike innocence
Oh, I don't care, I'm being used
I've fallen in her abyss

And I know your shameless heart ain't true
Oh, every move you make is cruel

Your shameless heart ain't true
There's nothing more to say
There's nothing I can do
I just can't keep away

Everyone is searching
Searching for the truth
But all this lonely boy
Is searching for is you

I know your shameless heart ain't true
And I know every move you make is cruel

You're so shameless

You're shameless heart ain't true
I don't know where to start
There's nothing you won't do
You know it's tearing me apart

Your shameless heart ain't true

. . .


Oh, you are a contradiction
My beautiful addiction
The more you get, the less you want
A dead-on prediction

Was I too easy with the truth?
Was I kind when you wanted cruel?

I laid a ray of sunshine down for you to follow
I gave you every ounce of my love
But we lost tomorrow
Or was I too good to you?

You were out, I brought you in
Out of the weather, you were happy, baby
We were getting better and better
Was I too good to you, baby?
Tell me now, was I too good to you?

You are the main attraction
A physical reaction
And yet, the more you need
The less you see, love is a distraction

Oh, was I too easy with the truth?
Was I kind when you wanted cruel?

I laid a ray of sunshine down for you to follow
I gave you every ounce of my love
But we lost tomorrow
Was I too good to you?

You were out I brought you in
Out of the weather, you were happy, baby
We were getting better and better, Lord
Was I too good to you, baby?
Tell me now, was I too good to you?

Should I have held on, should I have held back
Could I have done so much more than that
You couldn't receive, you wouldn't believe
And now I'm just waiting out the days we're not together

I said I'm waiting out the days

Lay a ray of sunshine down for you to follow
I gave you every ounce of my love
But we lost tomorrow
Was I too good to you?

You were out I brought you in
Out of the weather, you were happy, baby
We were getting better and better
Was I too good to you, baby?
Tell me now, was I too good to you?

I lay a ray of sunshine down for you to follow
I gave you every ounce of my love, but we lost tomorrow
Was I too good to you, baby?
Tell me now was I too good to you?

All I know is the same old contradictions
Follow us wherever we go
You're beautiful, tell me was I too good to you, baby?
Tell me now was I too good to you?

You don't know how to feed and protect my love
So open up to where you belong, girl
Tell me, was I, was I too good to you?

. . .


Some words aren't meant to be spoken
But you gotta say something
Some things aren't meant to be broken
But you gotta break something

Sometimes you don't wanna try
But you gotta try something
Sometimes you don't wanna feel
Don't wanna feel nothing

I don't mind singing
You gotta try something

Sometimes you misunderstand me
Why don't you just listen?
Let me out of your shadow
Let me out of your prison

I wish I could make up my mind
So many decisions
I know that I will be fine
I will be forgiven

I don't mind singing
You gotta try something

I'll be waiting for the rest of my life
Don't need anyone to save me

I don't mind singing
You gotta try something
Don't wanna feel nothing
Why don't you just listen?
Let me out of your prison

Wish I had the words, the words to say
I wish you had the patience anyway
To let it go, to let it go
I wish I had the words, the words to say
Wish I had the patience anyways
Just let it go, to let it go

. . .


The day you walked into my life
Was like a hurricane inside
I couldn't walk, I couldn't talk
It happened to me

I took you deep inside my world
I made you want to be my girl
You couldn't walk, you couldn't talk
You know it happened to you

Well, let me tell you now, hard times happen
Can you hear fate saying
"Told you so, look at you now"
Do you really wanna wanna give in, give in, Lord?

This time around, there's no way I can let you down
'Cause I'm here and I plan to stay
I've seen the other side
Your light shines brighter than the best
I want you for the rest of my days

Thought I was better off alone
Keep it simple, I've been told
Cut the line, you'll have more time for fooling around

But I was blind to let you go
I came back to let you know
I couldn't walk, I couldn't talk, without my baby by my side

Hard times happen
Can you hear fate saying
"Told you so, look at you now"
Do you really wanna wanna give in, give in, Lord?

This time around, there's no way I can let you down
'Cause I'm here and I plan to stay
I've seen the other side
Your light shines brighter than the best
I want you for the rest of my days

I am no saint, I know you think I could never change
Another hopeless case in Hollywood
But you've saved me from myself, you've conquered me
And I will have nothing less than all of you

Help me momma, it's cold outside

Oh, this time around, there's no way I can let you down
'Cause I'm here and I plan to stay
Oh, I've seen, I've seen the other side
Your light shines brighter than the best
I want you for the rest of my days

I want you for the rest of my days, baby
I want you for the rest of my days, baby
I said I'm sorry
I'm sorry, sorry, sorry

There's no way I can let you down
Your light shines brighter than the best

There's no way I can let you down
Your light shines brighter than the best
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, baby

. . .


I caught your perfect smile
As I watched you sleep
I saw your beautiful soul

When I felt your heart beat
Your body small your spirit deep
What might have been
Just makes me weep

Lydia
Where have you been?
Dreams of you
Washed up again

It's the perfect time of day
To be thinking of you
The sun's going down
And the sky's still blue

When you're looking down
Do you approve?
'Cause life downstairs
Gets hard on you

Lydia
Where have you been?
Dreams of you
Washed up again

Will you be gone forever?
Where do I begin
Your face in the moon
Reminds me
I will see you again

. . .

Caroline

[No lyrics]

{Refrain}
You are the woman that I've always dreamed of
I knew it from the start
I saw your face and that's the last I've seen of my heart

It's not so much the things you say to me
It's not the things you do
It's how I feel each time you're close to me
That keeps me close to you

{Refrain}

It's not so much your pretty face I see
It's not the clothes you wear
It's more that special way you look at me
That always keeps me there, woh-oh

{Refrain}

It's hard to tell you all the love I'm feelin'
That's just not my style
You got a way to set my senses reelin'
Every time you smile, woh

{Refrain}

Of my heart, ooh, woh my heart
