Monday, hard to wake up
Fill my coffee cup, I'm out the door
Yeah, the freeway's standing still today
It's gonna make me late, and thats for sure
I'm running out of gas and out of time
Never gonna make it there by nine

Chorus:
There's gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I'm gonna take my chances
Taking a chance I might
Find what I'm looking for
There's gotta be something more

Five years and there's no doubt
That I'm burnt out, I've had enough
So now boss man, here's my two weeks
I'll make it short and sweet, so listen up
I could work my life away, but why?
I got things to do before die

Repeat Chorus

Some believe in destiny, and some believe in fate
I believe that happiness is something we create
You best belive that I'm not gonna wait
'Cause there's gotta be something more

I get home 7:30 the house is dirt, but it can wait
Yeah, 'cause right now I need some downtime
To drink some red wine and celebrate
Armageddon could be knocking at my door
but I ain't gonna answer thats for sure.
There's gotta be something more!

. . .


They say in this town
Stars stay up all night
Well I don't know, can't see 'em
For the glow of the neon lights
And it's a long way from here
To the place where the home fires burn
Well, it's two thousand miles and one left turn

Dear Mom and Dad, please send money
I'm so broke that it ain't funny
Well, I don't need much, just enough to get me through
Please don't worry cause I'm alright
See I'm playin' here at the bar tonight
Well, this time I'm gonna make our dreams come true
Well, I love you more than anything in the world
Love, your baby girl

Blacktop, blue sky, big town
Full of little white lies, well
Everybody's your friend
You can never be sure
They'll promise fancy cars and diamond rings
All sorts of shiny things but
Girl, you'll remember what your knees are for

Dear Mom and Dad, please send money
I'm so broke that it ain't funny
Well, I don't need much, just enough to get me through
Please don't worry cause I'm alright
See I'm playin' here at the bar tonight, well
This time I'm gonna make our dreams come true
Well, I love you more than anything in the world
Love, your baby girl

I know that I'm on my way
Well, I can tell everytime I play
And I'll know it's worth all the dues I pay
When I can write to you and say

Dear Mom and Dad, I'll send money
I'm so rich that it ain't funny
Well, it ought to be more than enough to get you through
Please don't worry cause I'm alright
See I'm stayin' here at the Ritz tonight
Whatta ya know, we made our dreams come true
And there are fancy cars and diamond rings
But you know that they don't mean a thing
Well, they all add up to nothin' compared to you
Well, remember me in ribbons and curls
I still love you more than anything in the world
Love, your baby girl

Your baby girl
Your baby girl

Dreams do come true

I was born in the heart of a hurricane season
In the house where my mama was raised
That old September wind feels just like a long lost friend
And I...

Chorus:
I want to run though those cottonwood trees
Fall asleep in a big bed of fresh fallen leaves
And in every wind that blows there's a song of letting go
It's no goodbye, it's hello

When we met underneath the blue skies of summer
And those summer skies turn into fall
That sweet September wind made us so must more than friends

On Night...

And we ran though those cottonwood trees
We made love in a big bed of fresh fallen leaves
In every wind that blows there's an innocence that knows
It's not goodbye, it's hello

In the moment that one thing ends
Is the same time that one begins
And return as we must
We are ashes to dust, amen.

When the days of my youth have all faded
And the memories are all that remain
Let that old September wind take me back to where I've been
So I...

Chorus:
I can run through those cottonwood trees
And remember the smell of those fresh fallen leaves
Now in every wind that blows there's a part of me that knows
It's not goodbye, it's hello

. . .


It ain't often I take time to answer calls on the request line
But this one says that we're his best last chance
So all you people in radioland, turn it up loud, loud as you can
Help to carry these words of a desperate man

[chorus]
Do you believe in love and that we were meant to be
Two words can free us, so repeat them after me
"I do", from a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee

It's always scary when you find true love
Hits like lightning from high about
You might only get one chance to say

[chorus]
Do you believe in love and that we were meant to be
Two words can free us, so repeat them after me
"I do", from a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee

He got scared and let her slip away
Now he knows he's not afraid
I'll put him on the air in case she's listening somewhere

Take it to heart, keep in mind
Try to reach out through the telephone line
Caller, you're on the air, say it so she hears

[chorus]
Do you believe in love and that we were meant to be
Two words can free us, so repeat them after me
"I do", from a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee

. . .


I got miles of trouble spreadin' far and wide
Bill on the table gettin' higher and higher
They just keep on comin', theres no end in sight
I'm just holding on tight...
I've got someone who loves me more then words can say
And I'm thankful for that each and every day
And if I count all my blessings, I get a smile on my face
Still it's hard to find faith..

Chorus:
But if can you look in my eyes
And tell me we'll be alright
If you promise never to leave
You just might make me believe

Its just day to day tryin' to make ends meet
What id give for an address on easy street
I need a deep margarita to help me unwind
Leave my troubles behind...

Repeat Chorus

I used to believe in us
When times got tough
Lately I'm afraid that even love is not enough

Chorus:
But if you can look in my eyes
And tell me we'll be alright
If you promise never to leave you just might make
Oh, you just might make me
You just might make me believe

Friday, payday, Lordy got to get away
Had it with the wife thing, living on a shoe string
What’s a poor girl got to do just to have some fun?
All these years without any help
Guess what, honey, clothes just don’t wash themselves!
Neither do dishes, neither does the bathroom floor

So, now if anyone asks, not that they would
I’ll be down in Mississippi and up to no good

No more, what a bore, had enough, I’m out the door
Headed for a breakdown, had it with the small town
Gonna call Lisa, gonna call Carla Sue
Now we’re gonna let it roll, gonna let it rip
Gonna get us a nice room down on the strip
Not that we’ll need it, there won’t be any sleepin’ tonight

So, now if anyone asks, not that they would
We’ll be down in Mississippi and up to no good

Hammer down, here we go
Runnin’ for the riverboat
All you’re gonna see is asses and elbows
Luck’s about to change for these three queens
Tired of getting’ jokers, deal us up kings

Snake eyes, roll the dice, double down and hit me twice
Cashin’ in the big chips, gonna leave a big tip
Hotter than a two dollar pistol, baby, I’m on fire

So, now if anyone asks, not that they would
I’ll be down in Mississippi and up to no good
If anyone asks, not that they would
I’ll be down in Mississippi and up to no good

. . .


Oh I swear this town gets smaller everyday,
and I'm waitin for my chance.
I'm gonna break away.
I'm so sick and tired of being told what's good for me.
People got lots of ideas, of who I'm supposed to be.

Angel carry me, oh so far away.
May my body never... touch the ground.
And If I promise you I'll be back someday,
Will you set me free so I can fly away?

Fly away... fly away...

Well most folks here …well they don't dig too deep.
They can't dream too big... ummmmhmmm...
Cause they've got fields to keep
I could walk away and leave behind my family.
Or get buried alive in this legacy.

Angel carry me, oh so far away.
May my body never... touch the ground.
And If I promise you I'll be back someday,
Will you set me free so I can fly away?

Fly away… fly away

I wanna sleep under a different piece of sky
I wanna live a little bit before I die
I wanna be so close to heaven I see angels...

Carry me, oh so far away.
May my body never... touch the ground.
And If I promise you I'll be back someday,
Will you set me free so I can fly away?

Fly away... fly away...

Fly away... fly away...

We drove all night to get to Corpus Christi
My parents slept right through, they never missed me
We were far from sleepin’ when the truth began to creep in
That we weren’t going home anytime soon
The morning light sure took us by surprise
We grabbed our clothes, watched a beautiful sunrise
We were one together and must have talked forever
And it was then and there I realized

I don’t want to wait even one more night
It’s hard to slow down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we’re holding on tight
We’re traveling at twice the speed of life

We worked our way through college waiting tables
Bought a little white house with a picket fence and cable
I asked if he was ready to become a mom and daddy
And then I found my answer in his eyes
And he said…

I don’t want to wait even one more night
It’s hard to slow down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we’re holding on tight
We’re traveling at twice the speed of life

Now our oldest girl is almost grown
She’s got a boyfriend of her own
I heard her sneaking out with him last night
And is she is anything like me
She’s desperate to be wild and free
We know it’s just a matter of time
‘Til she says…

I don’t want to wait even one more night
It’s hard to slow down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we’re holding on tight
We’re traveling at twice the speed of life

. . .


Well, it’s 2 miles east to west
Only 4 miles north to south
When you pass the only red light
You will see the pastor’s house
People look you in the eye
And they smile at you and wave
Yeah, they always take the time
To stop and ask you, “How’s your day?”
It’s hard to say goodbye, ‘cause baby, it’s a good life

At the high school football game
Is where I got my first kiss
I still feel the butterflies
I still taste it on my lips
When we lost our Uncle Jake
Back in 1983
We heard Daddy upstairs weepin’
So we cried ourselves to sleep
It’s hard to say goodbye, ‘cause baby, it’s a good life

Goodbye to memories that I’ve saved
Goodbye to all the friends I’ve made
Goodbye to all the home I’ll ever know
Small town Jericho

Every road here looks the same
This old town won’t ever change
That’s what I love the most
And it’s the reason I must go

I put boxes on the porch
Daddy puts them in the car
Best to get the loadin’ done
Won’t be easy in the dark
‘Cause I’m leaving after midnight
And if anyone asks why
I wanna wait till mamma’s sleepin’
I can’t bear to see her cry
It’s hard to say goodbye, ‘cause baby, it’s a good life

Goodbye to memories that I’ve saved
Goodbye to all the friends I’ve made
Goodbye to all the home I’ll ever know
Small town Jericho…goodbye

. . .


I was on a fast curve, lost my nerve on a dead end road
I was goin’ nowhere faster than two legs can go
Never thought I’d slow down
I’m glad I finally know now

That’s life, if you open up your eyes
You’ll find it gets better all the
Time, time, time

I never really noticed when he moved in next to me
Sometimes it’s amazing just how blind a girl can be
If I weren’t busy runnin’
I might have seen it comin’

That’s life, if you open up your eyes
You’ll find it gets better all the
Time, time, time

Running out of time, I’m runnin’ away
I’m running out of ways of running away
Got to slow down, if you don’t, you’re gonna breakdown

I’m runnin’ out of time, time, time

I was cooking dinner, heard a ring at my front door
I opened up and saw him, never felt like that before
The moment that our eyes met I knew I’d never forget
Sometimes the thing you most need is right there, but you can’t see

That’s life, if you open up your eyes
You’ll find it gets better all the
Time, time, time

. . .


Go ahead and take your best shot,
Let 'er rip, give it all you've got,
I'm laid out on the floor, but I've been here before,
I may stumble, yeah I might fall,
Only human aren't we all?
I might lose my way, but hear me when i say,

I will stand back up,
You'll know just the moment when I've have enough,
Sometimes I'm afraid, and I dont feel that tough,
But I'll stand back up,

I've been beaten up and bruised,
I've been kicked right off my shoes,
Been down on my knees more times than you'd believe,
When the darkness tries to get me,
There's a light that just won't let me,
It might take my pride, and my tears may fill my eyes,
But I'll stand back up,

I've weathered all these stroms,
But I just turn them into wind, so I can fly,
What don't kill you makes you stronger,
When I take my last breath,
That's when I'll just give up,

So, go ahead to take your best shot,
Let 'er rip, give it all you've got,
You might win this round but you can't keep me down,

'Cause I'll stand back up,
And you'll know just the moment when I've had enough,
Sometimes I'm afraid and I don't feel that tough,
But I'll stand back up,

You'll know just the moment when I've had enough,
Sometimes I'm afraid and I dont feel that tough,
But I'll stand back up.
