Picture perfect memories
Scattered all around the floor
Reaching for the phone 'cause
I can't fight it anymore

And I wonder if I
Ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It's a quarter after one
I'm all alone
And I need you now
Said I wouldn't call
But I've lost all control
And I need you now

And I don't know how
I can do without
I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey
Can't stop looking at the door
Wishing you'd come sweeping
In the way you did before

And I wonder if I
Ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It's a quarter after one
I'm a little drunk
And I need you now
Said I wouldn't call
But I've lost all control
And I need you now

And I don't know how
I can do without
I just need you now

Whoa, whoa
Guess I'd rather hurt
Than feel nothing at all

It's a quarter after one
I'm all alone
And I need you now
And I said I wouldn't call
But I'm a little drunk
And I need you now

And I don't know how
I can do without
I just need you now
I just need you now

Oh baby, I need you now

. . .


Here we go!

You wear your smile like a summer sky
Just shining down on me and you
I swear your heart is a free bird
On a lazy Sunday afternoon

I love the way that you were up for anything
Never worried 'bout what people say
That's right, oh that's right
What we got is

Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, yeah, that's our kind of love
Mm that's our kind of love

Skipping rocks and leaving footprints
Down along the riverbank
Always holding hands, never making plans
Just living in the moment, babe

You give me life and with those funny faces
You somehow always know just what to say
That's right, oh that's right
What we got is

Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, yeah, that's our kind of love
That's our kind of love

Oh that's right, baby you and I
What we got is

Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, oh
Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, yeah, that's our kind of love

Oo, that's our kind of love
Oh, that's our kind of love

1,2,3, here we go!
Oo, yeah
That's our kind of love, girl
Dontcha know it

. . .


She grow up on the side of the road
Where the church bells ring and strong love grows
She grew up good, she grew up slow
Like American honey
Steady as a preacher, free as a weed
Couldn't wait to get going but wasn't quite ready to leave
So innocent pure and sweet American honey

There's a wild, wild whisper blown in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
oh I miss those days as the years go by
oh nothings sweeter than summertime and American honey

Get caught in the race of this crazy life
Trying to be everything can make you lose your mind
I just wanna go back in time to American honey

There s a wild, wild whisper blown in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
oh I miss those days as the years go by
oh nothings sweeter than summertime and American honey

Gone for so long now
I gotta get back to her some how
To American honey

There's a wild, wild whisper blown in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
oh I miss those days as the years go by
oh nothings sweeter than summertime and American honey

. . .


Traffic crawls, cell phone calls.
Talk radio screams at me
Through my tinted window I see
A little girl, rust red minivan
She's got chocolate on her face
Got little hands, And she waves at me
Yeah, She smiles at me

Hello World
How you been
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel, cold as steel
Broken like I'm never gonna heal
I see a light, a little hope
In a little girl
Hello world

Every day I drive by
A little white church
It's got these little white crosses
Like angels in the yard
Maybe I should stop on in
Say a prayer
Maybe talk to God
Like he is there
Oh I know he's there
Yeah, I know he's there

Hello world
How've you been
Good to see you my old friend
Sometimes I feel as cold as steel
And broken like I'm never gonna heal
I see a light, a little grace, little faith unfurled.
Hello world

Sometimes I forget what livin' for
And I hear my life through my front door
And I breathe it in,
Oh I'm home again
I see my wife, little boy, little girl
Hello world
Hello world

All the empty disappears
I remember why I'm here
Just surrender and Believe
I fall down on my knees
Oh hello world
Hello world
Hello world

. . .


Went walking through town just the other day with nothing much to do
As the sun came breaking down through the clouds
I never seen the sky so blue
I saw a Cajun man with a red guitar singing on the side of the street
I threw a handful of change in his beat up case and said play me a country beat
And it sounded like

Met up with some friends outside of town we were headed towards the lake
I hopped into the back of a jacked up jeep, felt the wind upon my face
We got to the spot and the sun was hot everybody was feeling fine
So we jumped on in for a midday swim then we lost all track of time

CHORUS
It was a perfect day
What I'd give if I could find a way to stay Lost in this moment, now
Ain't worried about tomorrow when your busy living in a perfect day

As the moon came out and the fire burned, everybody was singing along
To some rambling a little Curtis Lowe and all those feel good songs
We danced all night without a care, no place we'd rather be
Cuz these are the days we'll talked about
When we lived so wild and free

CHORUS
It was a perfect day
What I'd give if I could find a way to stay Lost in this moment, now
Ain't worried about tomorrow when your busy living in a perfect day

BRIDGE
We were sitting in the sand as he grabbed my hand and he leaned in for a kiss
I couldn't help but think with the stars above, it doesn't get much better than this

END CHORUS
It was a perfect day
What I'd give if I could find a way to stay Lost in this moment, now
Ain't worried about tomorrow when your busy living feels like dreaming slowly drifting through this perfect day

. . .


She's no good for me

a wildflower

She's got a restlessness

But here I am again

Chorus:
It's like I love this pain
a little too much

It's just an on again
and off again
situation

It's a strikin match
a tank of gas
combination

But here I am again
lightin it up
knowin that she'll just burn me

Chorus

Its like I love this lie
but nothings right
and somethings wrong
Its like Im just not me

a sad sad song

Chorus

Oh yeah

I cant walk away
oh no

. . .


Everybody keeps telling me I'm such a lucky man
Lookin at you standin there I know I am
Barefooted beauty with eyes that blue
The sun shine sure looks good on you
I swear

Oh I can't believe I finally found you baby
Happy ever after, after all this time
Oh there's gonna be some ups and downs
but with you to wrap my arms around
I'm fine

So baby, hold on tight
Don't let go
Hold onto the love we're making
Cause baby when the ground starts shakin
You gotta know when you've got a good thing

You know you keep on bringin out the best of me
And I need you now even more than the air I breathe
You can make me laugh when I wanna cry
This will last forever I just know, I know

Hold onto the love we're making
Cause baby when the ground starts shakin
You gotta know when you've gotta good thing

Woah, woah, woah, woah

. . .


Girls in their heels and a skinny pair of blue jeans
Boys in their black pearl buttons looking just like Sprinsteen
Mama says "Why you wanna play in a silly rock and roll band?"
Well if you stood here, Mom, I know you'd understand

It's the lights, it's the hype
It's the roar of the crowd on a Friday night

And everybody's screaming out yeah, yeah, yeah
And everybody's singing out yeah, yeah, yeah
Get on your feet if it feels good, it feels right
'Cause we're all stars tonight
So sing it out yeah, yeah, yeah

Let's all get a little rowdy - gonna party all night long
And boys sway with your girls when we play a little slow song
Put your hands in the air, shine a lighter or a cell phone
You better buy another round, we ain't going home

On the floor, in the stands, tonight we're all in the band

And we're screaming out yeah, yeah, yeah
And everybody singing out yeah, yeah, yeah
Get on your feet if it feels good, it feels right
'Cause we're all stars tonight
So sing it out yeah, yeah, yeah

Everybody's screaming out yeah, yeah, yeah
Everybody's singing out yeah, yeah, yeah

And Everybody's screaming out yeah, yeah, yeah
Everybody's singing out yeah, yeah, yeah
Get on your feet if it feels good, it feels right
'Cause we're all stars tonight
So sing it out yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

The First Time That I Saw You
Looking Like You Did,
We Were Young
We Were Restless
Just Two Clueless Kids,
But If I Knew Then
What I Know Now
I'd Fall In Love.

You're On A Bus In Chicago
Three Rows To The Left
You Know My Heart
Is Reaching For You
But We Never Even Met
If I Knew Then
What I Know Now
I'd Fall In Love.

'Cause Love Only Comes
Once In A While
And Knocks On Your Door
And Throws You A Smile
And Takes Every Breath,
Leaves Every Scar,
Speaks Through Your Soul
And Sings To Your Heart
But If I Knew Then
What I Know Now
I'd Fall In Love.

On A Summer Night
In August
Backseat Of My Car
Said Im Trying To Get
To Know You,
I Took It Way To Far
But If I Knew Then
What I Know Now
I'd Fall In Love.

(Wooaahh)
'Cause Love Only Comes
Once In A While
And Knocks On Your Door
And Throws You A Smile
And Takes Every Breath,
Leaves Every Scar,
Speaks Through Your Soul
And Sings To Your Heart
But If I Knew Then
What I Know Now
I'd Fall In Love.

(Woah)
I Used Up
A Lot Of Chances
But You Give Them Back
But If Again
It Comes Crawling
Im Gonna Make It Last..

'Cause Love Only Comes
Once In A While
And Knocks On Your Door
And Throws You A Smile
It Takes Every Breath,
Leaves Every Scar,
Speaks Through Your Soul
And Sings To Your Heart
But If I Knew Then
What I Know Now

(Woah)
If I Knew Then
What I Know Now

I'd Fall In Love...

. . .


Well there's something bout a woman with my tshirt on
Hair in her eyes and no makeup on
Standing there smiling with my coffee cup
Yeah, there's something bout a woman that's easy to love

Yeah, there's something bout a woman that's a clear blue sky
Ain't found nothing better that will get you high
The colors of the sun at the end of the day
Yeah, there's something bout a woman makes you feel that way

She's like fire on a mountain
Like some kind of heaven that's pouring down on me
She's a child, she's a lady
She's got everything that I could ever need
Yeah, there's something bout a woman in me

Yeah, there's something bout a women when she gets fixed up
Slips a red dress on and her eyes light up
I love to watch her walking from across the room
Yeah, there's something bout a woman and the way that she moves me
She moves me
Oh, she moves me

She's like fire on a mountain
Like some kind of heaven that's pouring down on me
She's a child, she's a lady
She's got everything that I could ever need
Yeah, there's something bout a woman in me

She moves me
She moves me
Oh, she moves me

She's like fire on a mountain
Like some kind of heaven that's pouring down on me
She's a child, she's a lady
She's got everything that I could ever need
Yeah, there's something bout a woman in me

Yeah, there's something bout a woman that makes me still
There's something bout a woman that always will

. . .


Seems like I was walking in the wrong direction
I barely recognize my own reflection, no
Scared of love but scared of life alone

Seems I've been playing on the safe side baby
Building walls around my heart to save me, oh
But it's time for me to let it go

Yeah, I'm ready to feel now
No longer am I afraid of the fall down
It must be time to move on now
Without the fear of how it might end
I guess I'm ready to love again

Just when we think that love will never find you
You runaway but still it's right behind you, oh
It's just something that you can't control

Yeah, I'm ready to feel now
No longer am I afraid of the fall down
It must be time to move on now
Without the fear of how it might end
I guess I'm ready to love again

So come and find me
I'll be waiting up for you
I'll be holding out for you tonight

Yeah, I'm ready to feel now
No longer am I afraid of the fall down

It must be time to move on now
Without the fear of how it might end
I guess I'm ready, I'm ready to love again

. . .


I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to you

Chorus
This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you’re the only one I run to
I run to you

We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin’ right on through
And our love’s the only truth
That’s why I run to you

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus

. . .


Look me up when you're back in town
You know the number, I'll be around
Doing what I do
Living my life as a Simple man
Being alright with where I am
But when it comes to you, when it comes to you

Wish I would have taken a few more chances
Spun you around the room a few more dances
Just for once slip past these fences
Follow your heart over that horizon
Never looking back, just keep on driving
But holding you is just like trying to
Bottle up lightning

There's one little voice on the silfor?? side
Just dying to tell you don't say goodbye
But I can't make you stay
You might stay a day or a couple weeks
Sooner or later you'll find your wings
And you just fly away
And you hear me say

Wish I would have taken a few more chances
Spun you around the room a few more dances
Just for once slip past these fences
Follow your heart over that horizon
Never looking back, just keep on driving
But holding you is just like trying to
Bottle up lightning

Wish I would have taken a few more chances
Spun you around the room a few more dances
Just for once slip past these fences
Follow your heart over that horizon
Never looking back, just keep on driving
But holding you is just like trying to
To bottle up lightning
To bottle up lightning

. . .


There's a towel on the bathroom door
A t-shirt in my dresser if you like
And I'll go put the coffee on
I'll pour a cup for you if you've got the time

All these years we been nothing but friends
And even though we didn't plan on this

Can last night last
Or was it just too much red wine
Or one too many lonely nights
Can last night last
And could this be the start of us
Every morning waking up
To your sleepy eyes smiling back
Or is it just too soon to ask
Can last night last

I probably should be going now
Cause I'm not quite sure what to say
I'm so afraid you might get scared
If I told you how much I wanna stay

Here we are somewhere between lovers and friends
Is this the end, or where it begins

Can last night last
Or was it just too much red wine
Or one too many lonely nights
Can last night last
And could this be the start of us
Every morning waking up
