I Just Wanna Be Mad

Last night we went to bed not talking
Cause we already said to much
I face the wall you faced the window
Bound and determined not to touch

We’ve been married 7 years now
Some days if feels like 21
I’m still mad at you this morning
Coffee’s ready if you want some
I’ve been up since 5
Thinking about me and you
And I’ve got to tell you
The conclusion I’ve come to

[Chorus]
I’ll never leave, I’ll never stray
My love for you will never change
But I ain’t ready to make up or get around to that
I think I’m right I think your wrong
I’ll probably give in before long
Please don’t make me smile
I just want to be mad for awhile

For now you might as well forget it
Don’t run your fingers through my hair
Yeah that’s right I’m being stubborn
No I don’t want to go back upstairs
I’m going to leave for work
Without a goodbye kiss
But as I’m driving off
Just remember this

[Chorus twice]

I just want to be mad for awhile
I just want to be mad for awhile
I just want to be mad for awhile

Three Mississippi

[Verse 1]
I used to believe that things would change but here we go again,
Riding and spinning carousale this circle never ends,
This kitchen table has seen it all before,
These walls are tired of standing…Cant hold us anymore

[Chorus]
One Mississippi I close my eyes
Two Mississippi I’m beggin’ you and we can still survive
Three Mississippi No looking back,
Gone for good and i know that,
I wont Change my mind…OoOh WooOa yea,
Three Mississippi is where I at tonight

[Verse 2]
We’re all out of second chances and all out of one more times.
There’s not a word we haven’t said nothing we have not tried.
My bones are aching from the weight I’m holding down,
I took all that I’m taking,
I’m breaking….breaking down.

[Chorus]
One Mississippi I close my eyes,
Two Mississippi I’m beggin’ you and we can still survive,
Three Mississippi No looking back,
Gone for good and i know that,
I wont Change my mind…OoOh WooOa yea,
Three Mississippi is where I at tonight

[Bridge]
Hold My breath, Close My Eyes…
…Goodbye…
WooOOOo WoOooOO

[Chorus]
One Mississippi I close my eyes
Two Mississippi I’m beggin’ you and we can still survive
Three Mississippi No looking back,
Gone for good and i know that
I wont Change my mind…No I Wont Change My Mind,
Three Mississippi is where I at tonight

Three Mississippi
Three Mississippi

Pain To Kill

I got a headache from the work day
And a heartache from last night
Anything that could’ve lately did not go right
They say time is the ticket
But I sure ain’t got the time
With a little jingle in my pocket
There’s a mission on my mind

I’ve got some pain to kill
Hurt to heal
Anything I have to do I will
So come on baby let’s take a ride
Way on over to the other side
Of this low-down, lonely, no good way to feel
I got some pain to kill

Gonna find me a party
Maybe start one of my own
Light a fire to my troubles
And around the smoke
I might regret it come tomorrow
When I’m nursing the good time flu
But a girl in my condition only has one thing to lose

I’ve got some pain to kill
Hurt to heal
Anything I have to do I will
So come on baby let’s take a ride
Way on over to the other side
Of this low-down, lonely, no good way to feel
I got some pain to kill

Promotion bumped me
Boyfriend dumped me
I gotta do something
So until the sun comes up on Sunday

I’ve got some pain to kill
Hurt to heal
Anything I have to do I will
So come on baby let’s take a ride
Way on over to the other side
Of this low-down, lonely, no good way to feel
I got some pain to kill

I’ve got some pain to kill
Hurt to heal
Anything I have to do I will
So come on baby let’s take a ride
Way on over to the other side
Of this low-down, lonely, no good way to feel
I got some pain to kill

I got some real pain to kill

I Just Called To Say Goodbye

Boy, I didn’t mean to wake you.
I’m ok, yeah everything’s all right.
I’m in a phone booth outside of Denver,
I drove all night.

Well, I would’ve called you sooner,
But I knew you’d talk me out of this.
I’ve had a lot of miles to do some thinkin’,
Now it all-makes perfect sense.

No I haven’t changed my mind,
I just called to say goodbye.

You should see this mountain sunrise,
It looks just the way I dreamed.
I got my map of Colorado in the seat right next to me.
If it ain’t packed in this ol’ Plymouth,
It’s better left behind.
I just called to say goodbye.

Boy, you know I’m gonna miss you….,
But we both know it’s for the best.
We just can’t keep usin’ each other,
As a safety net.

I bet someday your gonna thank me.
When you finally get a taste of true love.
Baby, what we had was pretty good,
Just not enough.

So here’s to tears we’ll never cry,
I just called to say goodbye.

You should see this mountain sunrise,
It looks just the way I dreamed.
I got my map of Colorado in the seat right next to me.
If it ain’t packed in this ol’ Plymouth,
It’s better left behind.
I just called to say goodbye.

If it ain’t packed in this ol’ Plymouth,
It’s better left behind.
I just called to say goodbye

I just called to say goodbye.

I Wanna Do It All

I’m sitting in traffic
For the 5th year in a row
Wasting my time
Just to get
Where I don’t even wanna go
I started jotting things down
On a krispy kreme sack
Everything I’d do
If I could leave this place
And never look back

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I want to drink tequila
Down in Tijuana
Say why not
When somebody says
Hey do you wanna
I wanna get my heart broke
Once or twice
Settle down with the love of my life
Rock little babies to sleep at night

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I wanna spend a day
Every now and then
Just doin what I want to do
When I wanna do it
Anytime I wanna do it

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankee’s play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law

I wanna do it all
See Niagara falls
Fight city hall
Feel good in my skin
Beating the odds
With my back to the wall
Try to rob Peter
Without paying Paul
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all

The One You Love

( Feat. Vince Gill )

He says it’s none of my damn business, how much he drinks
And he doesn’t have a problem, no mater what the whole town thinks
At his baby’s birthday party, there was whiskey on his breath
Everybody wants to save him, but he’s not ready yet

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope that’s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, it’s the deepest wound there is
When you can’t help the one you love

Her sister reads the bible, her father sits an’ snores
They’re with her every minute, ’cause they may not have many more
She was dancin’ in New Orleans, only seven weeks ago
Life may go on without her, but not the life we know

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope that’s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, it’s the deepest wound there is
When you can’t help the one you love

When someone’s slippin’ away
Right before your eyes
How useless we are
Is a painful surprise

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope that’s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, it’s the deepest wound there is
When you can’t help the one you love

When you can’t help the one you love

Almost Gone

Caught between a rock and a heartache
In the middle of here and torn in two
Not sure which road that I’ll take
On my way to over you

Maybe I’ll get lost in the past
Maybe I’ll get past the lost
Either way, with or without you
I’m takin’ off

Now that my wheels are turnin’
I know I can get there on my own
Now that my fears are burnin’
I’m almost gone
Closer to where I’m headed
Finding my way won’t take me long
I may not be there yet
But I’m almost gone

What if I get stuck in a memory
Even if it’s right in front of me
And I’ll know that’s where I need to be

Now that my wheels are turnin’
I know I can get there on my own
Now that my fears are burnin’
I’m almost gone
Closer to where I’m headed
Finding my way won’t take me long
I may not be there yet
But I’m almost gone

Almost gone
Almost gone

Working Girl

Martha in the mornin’,Oprah in the afternoon,
Weddings in the Garden,
Watchin’ TV on a sick day,
Tel me: whats that mean to you?

[Chorus:]
They say I’m outta touch,
But they don’t know much about my world
got a wing and a prayer and a job on the line.
And there ain’t no time for a Working Girl.

Well,they say they respect me,
in the fashion magazines,
Oh,honey all I see is these girls don’t look like
me! Tell me: What’s it like to be rich? and ever seventeen?

[Repeat Chorus]

Starry nights on the beach,
the worlds in my reach,
But they don’t take American Express.

[Repeat Chorus]

Got A wing and A prayer and
a boss and a job on the line.
A Working Girl,I’m a
Working Girl
Martha in the mornin’,Oprah in the afternoon,

Watchin’ TV on a sick day,

got a wing and a prayer and a job on the line.
And there ain’t no time for a Working Girl.

Better Than You

At a table for two
With a romantic view
He said there’s something
That you need to know
I don’t usually date
So if I hesitate
It’s just that I’m taking it slow

He said, “Darling I don’t want to hurt you,”
As he gently reached out for her hand
She laughed, she picked up her menu
And said mister you don’t understand

I’ve been loved, I’ve been left
I’ve been wronged by the best
I’ve had hopes that were shattered in two
I’ve heard promises spoken
I’ve had dreams left so broken
There was no chance they’d ever come true
It ain’t easy to see
By looking at me
But there’s no hell I haven’t walked through
If you’re worried that’s fine
But this heart of mine’s
Been broken by better than you

When dinner was done
She said I had fun
As they walked to her door he smiled
He said, “It’s only 10 could I come in?
Maybe we could just talk for awhile.”
She said, “Honey I know what you’re after,
and as much as I’d like you to stay,
nothing good ever lasted
when it gets started that way.”

I’ve been loved, I’ve been left,
I’ve been wronged by the best
I’ve had hopes that were shattered in two
I’ve heard promises spoken
I’ve had dreams left so broken
There was no chance they’d ever come true
It ain’t easy to see
But take it from me
There’s no hell I haven’t walked through
And I wont cross that line
‘Cause this heart of mine’s
Been broken by better than you

No I won’t cross that line,
‘Cause this heart of mine’s
Been broken by better than you

Not A Bad Thing

I’m sittin’ in this cafe,
People talkin’ so loud I can’t hear myself think.
That’s not a bad thing.
The coffee keeps on coming,
The waiter who keeps smilin’
as I’m ridin’ on a river of caffeine,
An’ that’s not a bad thing.

I used to feel sorry for someone like me,
In a corner booth pretendin’ to read on a Friday night.
I used to say: “It just ain’t right.”
How could anybody ever have any fun,
Without somebody, without someone?
It never dawned on me,
The possibility,
That it’s not a bad thing.

Those naggin’ thoughts about you,
How I left without you tonight:
You know, they’re few and far between.
The waiter’s name is Joey, he told me,
And that’s when I noticed he ain’t wearing any ring.
An’ that’s not a bad thing.

And there is a tug on the edge of my heart,
It’s you again sayin’: “Don’t you start lettin’ go of me.”
But I ain’t listenin’.
For once in my life, I’ll feel what I feel,
Let it be, let it be real.
Let it flow through me,
An’ wash me clean.
That’s not a bad thing.

As I’m drivin’ home, I’m thinkin’,
The worst might be over,
Or maybe I’m a little bit naive.
But the street lights seem brighter,
As I walk to my front door,
And I’m all alone when I turn the key.
An’ that’s not a bad thing.

I used to feel sorry for someone like me,
In a corner booth pretendin’ to read on a Friday night.
I used to say: “It just ain’t right.”
How could anybody ever have any fun,
Without somebody, without someone?
It never dawned on me,
The possibility,
That it’s not a bad thing.

The First To Fall

I’ve had love and love’s had me
I’ve been held and been set free
And I have lived enough to know
That you might stay or you might go
So here I am one more time
Call me brave call me blind

I’m gonna count to 3
I’m gonna hold my breath
Try not to be afraid
Tho it scares me half to death
I’m out here on a limb
Although I know that it might break
My heart is gonna want you anyway
And if this love has any chance at all
Someone’s gotta be the first to fall

The best is just a touch away
We’ll make forever day by day
It’d be a shame to let this go
How sad to think we’d never know
How the morning light would fall on us
After we make all night in love

I’m gonna count to 3
I’m gonna hold my breath
Try not to be afraid
Tho it scares me half to death
I’m out here on a limb
Although I know that it might break
My heart is gonna want you anyway
And if this love has any chance at all
Someone’s gotta be the first to fall

So here I am one more time
Call me brave call me blind

I’m gonna count to 3
I’m gonna hold my breath
Try not to be afraid
Tho it scares me half to death
I’m out here on a limb
Although I know that it might break
My heart is gonna want you anyway
And if this love has any chance at all
Someone’s gotta be the first to fall…

God And Me

Sun’s commin’ up on a Sunday morning
I’m looking out the window at a beautiful view
Turn on the TV and somebody’s talkin’
About the wrong, the right and the ulitmate truth
I listen for a minute, but my heart is somewhere else
‘Cause I’ve got my own convictions
But I keep them to myself

[Chorus:]
When I feel the world around me
How can I not believe
If I’m high up on a mountain
Or down on my knees
It’s just between God and me

Secrets I’ve been holdin’
Tears cried, nobody else sees
Sometimes I’m alone but I know
There’s somebody watchin’ over me
There’s so much I’m afraid of
And I’m really not that strong
But there’s one place I can go to
Where all fear is gone

[Chorus:]
When I feel the world around me
How can I not believe
If I’m high up on a mountain
Or down on my knees
It’s just between God and me

Every picture’s painted differently
Everybody’s got a vision in their mind
That fills the heart with answeres
And the missing peace that we all hope to find
And this heart of mine

[Repeat chorus twice]

God and me
It’s just between God and me
