It ain't complicated
Well, I've grown to hate it
I never liked the taste of crow but baby I ate it
They tried to warn me
They said that you were ornery
So don't bring me those big brown eyes and tell me that you're sorry
Well you might as well throw gasoline on a fire
The way you lie

You lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor
You lie like a coon dog basking in the sunshine on my porch
You like like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store
It just comes way too natural to you
The way you lie

That ain't my perfume
I bet she had a curfew
You told me you were out with the boys and baby I believed you
So why you lookin' so nervous
You know you're gonna deserve this
I oughta kill you right now and do the whole wide world a service
Well my daddy's gonna straighten you out like a piece of wire, like a piece of wire
The way you lie

You like like the man with the slick black hair who sold me that Ford
You like like a palm tree in the back yard after last month's storm
You like like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store
It just comes way too natural to you
The way you lie

Well, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna drive into the big ol' muddy river
I'm gonna park my car in the middle of the mile-long bridge
And then I'm gonna cry well maybe just a little
Then I'm gonna slip off the ring that you put on my finger
Give it a big ol' fling and watch it sink
Down, down, down
There it's gonna lie
Until the Lord comes back around

Because you lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor
You lie like a coon dog basking in the sunshine on my porch
You like like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store
It just comes so dang natural to you
The way you lie
The way you lie
Well it's what you do, it's who you are

. . .


I like your lips like I like my Coca-Cola, yeah
Oh how it pops and fizzes
You like my shirt like I like it when you hold my hand
The way - it fits - has got me feeling lucky


Lookie, who is stumblin', whoo! You got that somethin'
Boy I wanna be where you are, and I'm gunnin' for ya'
Can't even fall for some other man, 'cause brother man,
You know how to get hip to my heart.

C'mon now!


All the girls in town look you up and look you down, I know
So... come on an' pick your kitten
Purr, baby, purr, go ahead and say the word - let's go!
I - think im the one you're takin'; got me feeling lucky


Lookie, who is stumblin', whoo! You got that somethin'
Boy I wanna be where you are, and I'm gunnin' for ya'
Can't even fall for some other man, 'cause brother man,
You know how to get hip to my heart.


Tell me now, who? Who?
Tell me now, who? Who?


You play it coo-ool, you play it so coo-coo-cool
And what am I supposed to do, when you play it so cool
And I got the hots for you?

Lookie, who is stumblin', whoo! You got that somethin'
Boy I wanna be where you are, and I'm gunnin' for ya'
Can't even fall for some other man, 'cause brother man,
You know how to get hip to my heart.

Lookie, who is stumblin', whoo! You got that somethin'
Boy I wanna be where you are, and I'm gunnin' for ya'
Can't even fall for some other man, 'cause brother man,
You know how to get hip to my heart.

I said, you know how to get hip to my heart.
I said, you know how to get hip to my heart.

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She'll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had, just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had, just enough time

And I’ll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I’m as green as the ring on my little, cold finger, I’ve
Never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand, there’s a
Boy here in town says he’ll, love my forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I’ll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I’m a goner
And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’
Funny when your dead how people start listenin’

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep ‘em in your pocket
Save them for a time when your really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls

Would you walk to the edge of the ocean
Just to fill my jar with sand
Just in case I get the notion
To let it run through my hand
Let it run through my hand

Well, I don't want the whole world
The sun, the moon, and all their light
I just want to be the only girl
You love all your life
You love all your life

Would you catch a couple thousand fireflies
Yeah, put them in a lamp to light my world
All dressed up in a tux and bowtie
Hand deliver to a lonely girl
To a lonely lonely girl

Well, I don't want the whole world
The sun, the moon, and all their light
I just want to be the only girl
You love all your life
You love all your life

Lately I've been writing desperate love songs
Mostly I sing them to the walls,
You could be the center piece of my obsession
If you would notice me, I
Ohh yeah

Well I don't want the whole world
The sun, the moon, and all their light
I just want to be the only girl
You love all your life
You love all your life

You love all your life
Life
Yeah

. . .


I wish I would have noticed sooner
All that crazy in your eyes
Do you practice in the mirror
On that temptin' crooked smile
Like the serpent in the garden
You came runnin' back to me
Twice I ate that poison apple
It made me sick of being Eve
I'll admit I was wrong

You said I'd miss you
Oh, yes I do
Honey I miss you being gone

I saw that floozy you been wooin'
On your ex best buddy's arm
And I knew you'd soon be slinkin' back
Turnin' on the charm
Yeah well, cupid ain't a bruiser
In a tavern throwin' darts
Do you think I walk around with a bullseye on my heart
Well I'll admit that I was wrong

You said I'd miss you
Oh, yes I do
Sugar I miss you being gone

I miss you like
Drama queens and cat fights and braces on prom night
I miss you like
Boy bands and cheap cologne
Our song and chaperones
And all the other things that I've outgrown

Well you know you've got the mojo
But it ain't workin' me no more
And I swear I won't be checkin' you out
When you walk out my door
I'll admit that I was wrong

You said I'd miss you
And boy you got issues
Honey I miss you being gone
Being gone
Being gone
Thank God you're gone

He was sweet as cotton candy at a county fair
Well he's a cold drink of water with butterscotch hair
He swore that he loved me
Well I guess he probably did
'cause when he rolled up his sleeve one day
I saw my name next to his

A new tattoo stinging like a hornet
Two little hearts like a big red warning
I wasn't looking for a permanent thing
First comes the ink, then comes the ring

Bummer baby
I bet we could've made a bunch of sweet memories
You should have slowed down mister
Moving like a twister's just a little fast for me

So now it's 0 to 60
And if you ever miss me I'm right there on your arm
Don't you cry, I'll leave you something behind
Skid marks and a double heart

Well he's a tough bronc buster
I bet he sleeps in his boots
Well he tried to throw a rope around me right out of the shoot
He swore that he loved me
Well I reckon he probably did
'cause when he rolled up his sleeve one day
I thought here we go again

A new tattoo burning like a brand
Two little hearts on my rodeo man
I wasn't looking for a permanent thing
First comes the ink, then comes the ring

Bummer baby
I bet we could've made a bunch of sweet memories
You should have slowed down mister
Moving like a twister's just a little fast for me

Well now it's 0 to 60
And if you ever miss me I'm right there on your arm
Don't you cry, I'll leave you something behind
Skid marks and a double heart
I'm a free bird

A new tattoo whistling Dixie
Two little hearts ain't gonna get me
I'm not looking for a permanent thing
So don't you put ink 'til I take the ring

Bummer baby
I bet we could've made a bunch of sweet memories
You should have slowed down mister
Moving like a twister's just a little fast for me

Well now it's 0 to 60
And if you ever miss me I'm right there on your arm
Don't you cry, I'll leave you something behind
Skid marks and a, skid marks and a
Skid marks and a double heart
Well, I'm a free bird

. . .


I remember when my heart caught the fever.
You were standing all alone in the summer heat.
I was with my boyfriend, my new boyfriend; he was as sweet as he could be.
But one look at you and I was through
my heart switched up on me.

Like a postcard from Paris when I've seen the real thing.
Its like finding out your diamond is from an old promise ring.
Come on back from your fortune teller she read your cards upside down.
The meanest thing you ever did is come around
and now, I'm ruined.

In the evening you can catch me daydreaming.
Did that moment send you reeling just like me?
I should have gone over right over I should of never let you leave.
But its the never knowing that keeps this going and drives me.

Like a postcard from Paris when I've seen the real thing.
Its like finding out your diamond is from an old promise ring.
Come on back from your fortune teller she read your cards upside down.
The meanest thing you ever did is come around.

Just when I thought things were alright,
my eyes play tricks on my mind, yeah.
Will I ever be satisfied cause all I ever seem to find is...
a postcard from Paris, when i need the real thing.
its like finding out your diamond is from an old promise ring.
Come on back from your fortune teller she read your cards upside down.
The meanest thing you ever did, the cruelest thing you ever did, the meanest thing you ever did is come around.
I am ruined.

. . .


I was meant to be by your side
And I have waited here a long time
For you to turn around and notice me
But now you're here holdin' hands with me

Walk me down the middle of the county fair
Walk me down the middle like you don't care
Walk me by the ferris wheel and make sure that she sees
Let the whole world know you belong to me

I've heard about your bitter end
'bout how she stole your heart and put it back again
Well I may not be the prettiest girl around
But I sure am a sight for sore, sore eyes

Walk me down the middle of main street
Walk me down where the whole town will be
I don't need no parade but make sure that she sees
Let the whole world know you belong to me

I'd walk through fire for you
Walk through barbed wire for you
I'd walk miles, it's true
Just to be with you

If you'll walk me down the middle of my mama's church
Walk me down that aisle in your finest shirt

Let the whole world know
You will walk me down the middle of the county fair
Oh walk me down the middle like you don't care
Walk me by the ferris wheel and make sure they all see
Let the whole world know you belong to me

. . .


Would you walk to the edge of the ocean
Just to fill my jar with sand
Just in case I get the notion to let it run through my hand
Let it run through my hand

Well, I don't want the whole world, the sun and moon and all their light
I just want to be the only girl, You love all your life, You love all your life

Would you catch a couple thousand fireflies , yeah,
put them in a lamp to light my world all dressed up in tux and bow tie and delivered to a lonely girl, to lonely, lonely girl

Well, I don't want the whole world, the sun and moon and all their light
I just want to be the only girl, You love all your life, You love all your life

Lately I've been writing desperate love songs, and mostly singuing them to the wall
You could be the center piece of my obsession, If would noticed me at all

Well, I don't want the whole world, the sun and moon and all their life
I just want to be the only girl, You love all your life, You love all your life
You love all your life, life, yeah

. . .


I don't know what I was thinking
You were no good but you could do some fancy talking
I know your tricks and delight for a Gumball Machine (nooo...)
You can keep your quarter man 'cause you won't get nothing sweet out of me

I'm quitting, (quitting), quitting, (quitting), quitting, I'm quitting you
Like a girl wants her chocolate, yeah, I know that I'll miss you
But I'm quitting, (quitting), quitting, (quitting), quitting, I'm not kidding I'm kicking you,
Cause you're my bad habit and I'm quitting you

What don't know what the heck you're thinking
It's gonna, gonna take a better man, I bet, to win my hand,
I'm not gonna play your game, I don't like the high stakes,
I'd rather sit alone at home than one more round of old maid

I'm quitting, (quitting), quitting, (quitting), quitting, I'm quitting you
Like a gambler leaving Vegas, boy, you know that I'll miss you
But I'm quitting, (quitting), quitting, (quitting), quitting, I'm not kidding I'm kicking you,
Cause you're my bad habit and I'm quitting

Cold turkey, giving you the cold shoulder,
Off, like a band-aid, one quick sting, then it's over

I'm quitting, (quitting), quitting, (quitting), quitting, I'm not kidding I'm kicking you,
Cause you're my bad habit and good ... have it,
You're my bad habit and I'm quitting you, you, yeah yeah yeah

. . .


When I first laid eyes on you
Well, the night just felt so odd
You looked at me and the stars lined up
So I thought I'd heard from God
And I gave him my best shot

Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
I tried to hold on to you
Took a ride on a tilt-a-whirl that sits on top of the world
Man, I thought I could show you
I've always been afraid of flying
But you can't blame a girl for trying

Felt like a pearl when I was holding your hand
So precious I forgot
You could have any girl but I only wanted one man
And you were everything I'm not
Still I gave it my best shot

Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
I tried to hold on to you
Took a turn on a high trapeze swinging over the deep
I thought I could show you
I've always been afraid of flying
But you can't blame a girl for trying

Like a vine bends a tree to the ground
I won't hold you down
I tried to climb just as high
But I found all the clouds touch the ground
In this small town

Took a ride on a high trapeze swinging over the deep
I thought I could show you
That I've always been afraid of flying
But you can't blame a girl for trying
No, you can't blame a girl
