Let’s make sure we kiss goodbye

January 29, 2008

Let’s make sure we kiss goodbye

Kiss me like you’ll never see my face again
As soft and tender as you can
Hold me like we’ll never make sweet love again
Please make me feel like a man

CHORUS:
So let’s send up a prayer
For this love that we share
‘Cause it could change in the blink of an eye
You just never know
How tomorrow will go
So let’s make sure we kiss goodbye
Let’s make sure we kiss goodbye

Look at me just like the day we fell in love
And found the missing pieces to our souls
You and me have always fit just like a glove
Wherever you are feels like home

I quit

January 29, 2008

I quit When you said you were leavin’ I said here we go again I ain’t even breakin’ even In this game I just can’t win The cards are stacked against me Your aces beat my twos Seems like bad luck travels with me Like I was born to lose I quit I’ve had enough of fallin’ in and out of love I’m done, I’m through, that’s it If I can’t have you… I quit You were my only sunshine In a world of pouring of pouring rain So this will be my last time I can’t go through this again Chorus I’m done, I’m through, that’s it If I can’t have you… I quit

When love finds you

January 29, 2008

When love finds you

Love sure is something no one can explain
It can bring you such joy, it can bring you pain
And with every emotion, love puts us through
There’s nothing you can say, when love finds you

Love is the power that makes your heart beat
It can make you move mountains, make you drop to your knees
When it finally hits you, you won’t know what to do
There’s nothin’ you can say, when love finds you

Chorus:
Give it all you can give it, when your love comes around
If you put your heart in it, then it won’t let you down
You’ll find out it’s true, baby, someday when love finds you

And when you least expect it, it will finally come true
There’s nothing you can say when love finds you

Repeat Chorus

You’ll find out it’s true, baby, someday when love finds you

Sight for sore eyes

January 29, 2008

Sight for sore eyes

When the storms of the day have all blown away Along with fair weather friends
There’s a place I can go where the wind doesn’t blow
It’s the best place I’ve ever been

You’re a sight for sore eyes
When I need a friend
You’re a sight for sore eyes
Let the healing begin

When the chips are all down and there’s no one around
To count on like I count on you
I just picture your face and let it erase
All the pain I’m goin’ through

You’re a sight for sore eyes
When I need a friend
You’re a sight for sore eyes
Let the healing begin

When I get lost and I can’t find my way
And there’s nowhere to turn at the end of the day

You’re a sight for sore eyes
When I need a friend
You’re a sight for sore eyes
Let the healing begin

You’re a sight for sore eyes
Let the healing begin

South side of Dixie

January 29, 2008

South side of Dixie

You know I’m about to lose my mind
I got a woman down below the Mason-Dixon line
She deals the cards awful good to me
She’s a blackjack dealer on the Delta Queen

Chorus:
On the south side of Dixie
From Savannah Georgia down to New Orleans
On the south side of Dixie
Women there they don’t treat you mean
On the south side of Dixie
A side of the south you ain’t never seen

Half a tank north of Birmingham
Red eye gravy and country ham
Chattanooga woman sure is sweet
She’s a hillbilly singer from Tennessee

Repeat Chorus

If you go down south, you’re gonna have a ball
You’ll go half crazy tryin’ to love ’em all
You might get lucky, you can’t never tell
With them Georgia peaches and them southern belles

Take your memory with you

January 29, 2008

Take your memory with you

I can read the writing on the wall
You pretend that nothing’s changed at all
I’ve got just one thing to ask you if it’s so
Just take your memory with you when you go

So I won’t have to think about
The lonely nights I’ll be without
Someone to hold me when the cold wind blows
Take your memory with you when you go

I walk the floor and wonder what went wrong
I’ll have to find a way to carry on
Why don’t you leave before the heartache starts to show
Take your memory with you when you go

So I won’t have to think about
The lonely nights I’ll be without
Someone to hold me when the cold wind blows
Take your memory with you
So I won’t have to miss you
Take your memory with you when you go

Sparkle

Sparkle

Sparkle, there’s gotta be a sparkle
For you to love somebody
For you to really know
Brighter than the lights in the city
It’s more than being pretty
The way you are inside

Why are you cryin’
Somebody’s tryin’
To be with you only all the time
You hide behind tears
Counting the fears
You’re so used to being alone

Sparkle, there’s gotta be a sparkle
For you to love somebody
For you to really know
Sparkle, you got a certain sparkle
I know I love somebody
I gotta let it show

(Instrumental Break)

Nobody knows you
They can’t get too close to
A girl who won’t let down her disguise
You won’t believe how much someone could love you
That someone is looking in your eyes

Sparkle, it’s gotta be a sparkle
For you to love somebody
For you to really know
Brighter than the lights of the city
It’s more than being pretty
It’s the way you feel inside
Sparkle

Something’s missing

January 29, 2008

Something’s missing

The street looks different tonight
Something has changed
I had this picture in mind
But it’s just not the same

Had this great expectation
About a heart that’s free
I thought that’s what i wanted
Would be waiting for me

Chorus:
Baby something’s missing tonight
Something ain’t feeling right
Baby something’s wrong and i’m so confused
Baby something’s missing inside
Something i can’t find in the night
I finally realized what i’m missing is you

In this crowd of old friends
Why do i feel alone
I thought i’d fall back in step
This is where i belong

I thought that freedom was a voice
Calling from the dark
Now i see i was only free
When you were in my heart

Chorus

I thought that freedom was a voice
Calling from the dark
Now i see i was only free
When you were in my heart

Chorus

The hills of Caroline

January 29, 2008

The hills of Caroline

I was born in Guilford County
Way back up in the pines
It’s where I hold the sweetest memories
In the hills of Caroline

My daddy wasn’t much of nothin’
He spent his life doin’ time
Mama learned me about Jesus
In the hills of Caroline

I met a girl her name was Hattie
Fair and tender, sweet and kind
She showed me how to love a woman
In the hills of Caroline

I always thought that we would marry
One sweet day she would be mine
But Hattie’s gone, to live with Jesus
In the hills of Caroline

If I should die before tomorrow
Just one request if you don’t mind
Just bury me right next to Hattie
In the hills of Caroline
Bury me right next to Hattie
In the hills of Caroline

Say hello

January 29, 2008

Say hello

I walk down these lonely strets and try to find you
In all the same old places we use to go
And the old friends that i meet still ask about you
And they tell me if i see you say hello

Say hello to the arms that used to hold me
Hold me close when those chilly winds would blow
Say hello with the lips that used to kiss me
And whisper in my ear i love you so

I remember the night when i first met you
I knew that i could never let you go
Now i can’t find a way to forget you
I’d give anything to hear you say hello

Say hello to the arms that used to hold me
Hold me close when those chilly winds would blow
Say hello with the lips that used to kiss me
And whisper in my ear i love you so

I’d give anything to hear you say hello
