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


The heart won’t lie

January 29, 2008

The heart won’t lie

Looking back over the years
Of all the things i’ve always meant to say
But the words didn’t come easily
So many times through empty fears
Of all the nights i tried to pick up the phone
So scared of who might be answering

You try to live your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

Chorus:
Cause the heart won’t lie
Sometimes life gets in the way
But there’s one thing that won’t change
I know i’ve tried
The heart won’t lie
You can live your alibi
Who can see you’re lost inside a foolish disguise
The heart won’t lie

Long after tonight
Will you still hear my voice through the radio
Old desires make us act carelessly
Long after tonight, after the fire
After the scattered ashes fly
Through the four winds blown and gone
Will you come back to me

You try to love your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

Repeat chorus


Til the best comes along

January 29, 2008

Til the best comes along

Now I ain’t the best lookin’ guy in the world
And I ain’t got much money at all
But when our eyes met, I’ll never forget
And for you I could easily fall

Chorus:
So why don’t we just keep on dancin’
While the band sings an old country song
Well I won’t be depressed
If I ain’t the best
But will I do ’til the best comes along

I ain’t got a mansion on some mountain top
And I ain’t got no long limousine
But I’ve got a heart as warm as the sun
And could love you like you’ve never seen

Chorus

No, I won’t be depressed
If I ain’t the best
But will I do ’til the best comes along


Under these conditions

January 29, 2008

Under these conditions I know we’re both married Yet we’re both alone He’s always working And she’s never home If we got together It would be so good But under these conditions I don’t think we should ’cause we both have children And they need us around Although we’re both willing We can’t let ’em down As much as we want to You know where we stand Under these conditions I don’t think we can We love each other But it’s only in dreams But we have to get used to the fact It’s just one of those things We’ll never know how This love could feel And under these conditions We never will


The luckiest guy in the world

January 29, 2008

The luckiest guy in the world

I’ve got a secret I keep in my heart
A secret that sure makes me smile
And I’ve got a feeling deep down in my soul
That I haven’t felt in a while
I’ve found somebody that really does love me
And I know that she’ll always stay
I’m the luckiest guy in the world
‘Cause my heart feels this way

We watch old movies and cry at the endings
And get lost in each other’s eyes
We hold hands when we’re walking and
Spend all night talking and making love as the sun starts to rise
She’s found somebody that really does love her
And she knows that I’ll always stay
I’m the luckiest guy in the world
‘Cause her heart feels this way

We share the same hopes
We dream the same dreams
Oh lifelong companions I’d say
I’m the luckiest guy in the world
‘Cause our hearts feel this way
I’m the luckiest guy in the world
‘Cause our hearts feel this way
