Wrecking Ball

Ten tons desire ten tons of passion
Pickin’ up steam 2 souls crashin’
No wasted wishes, thrown away kisses
I’ve got a job to do

Rubble and dust, smoke and flames
A glorious mess, wild and untamed
When I take aim, and set my heart on you

I’m a wreckin’ ball
A woman on a mission, pure demolition
Bustin’ right through that wall
No sense in runnin’, you won’t see it comin’
But it feels so good when you fall
I’m wreckin’ ball

It’s a sweet kind of damage, a good kind of broken
Knockin’ that locked up door wide open
You’ll be smiling knowing I’ll swing back through

I’m a wreckin’ ball
A woman on a mission, pure demolition
Bustin’ right through that wall
No sense in runnin’, you won’t see it comin’
But it feels so good when you fall
I’m wreckin’ ball

No holding me back, no slowing me down
When I want what I want and I want it right now
On a cast iron chain, headed your way
You’ll know I ain’t messin’ around

Cuz I’m a wreckin’ ball
A woman on a mission, pure demolition
Bustin’ right through that wall
No sense in runnin’, you won’t see it comin’

I’m a wreckin’ ball
But it feels so good when you fall
I’m wreckin’ ball
Runnin’ on passion, comin’ right at ya
And it feels so good when you fall
I’m a wreckin’ ball
A wreckin’ ball

Breakin' Up Thing

Coffee’s still warm in the cup
On your side of the bed
My head’s still ringing from everything that you said
I believed that you were mine
Fell hard for every line
That was way too smooth it can’t be your first time

You got that breakin’ up thing down
Know how to leave without a sound
I could learn a thing or two watching you
Got that breakin’ up thing down

You’re phone keeps hummin’, I’m wonderin’ who it could be
Text messages comin’, none of them from me
You make misery an art
No respect for the human heart
Take a bow you sure know how to play the part

You got that breakin’ up thing down
Know how to leave without a sound
I could learn a thing or two watching you
Got that breakin’ up thing down

You’re gonna know what lonely means one day
When someone you love just walks away

You got that breakin’ up thing down
Know how to leave without a sound
I could learn a thing or two watching you
Got that breakin’ up thing down

I’m just a diamond in your crown
I could learn a thing or two watching you
Got that breakin’ up thing down

I could learn a thing or two, and honey you
Got that breakin’ up thing down

The One

I hear the whispers as I walk by
They always start with bless her heart
She’s still single and that’s such an empty life
She must not be lookin’ all that hard
They’ve all got their stories of why I’m still alone
But the only truth that matters is my own

I want fireworks to paint the sky
A kiss to burn my lips
I wanna feel the touch that pounds my heart down to my fingertips
And twenty years from now it still won’t be as good as it will get
It might be a lot to ask for but I won’t take any less
Just because I won’t settle don’t mean I won’t settle down
I don’t need a love that I can live with
I want the one I can’t live without

Momma’s always getting on me
She says I don’t give anyone a chance
But if I can’t feel the music when somebody holds me
How am I supposed to dance
There might be a few more lonely nights
But I’m not keeping score
It’s worth the wait for what I’m waitin’ for

Fireworks to paint the sky
A kiss to burn my lips
I wanna feel the touch that pounds my heart down to my fingertips
And twenty years from now it still won’t be as good as it will get
It might be a lot to ask for but I won’t take any less
Just because I won’t settle don’t mean I won’t settle down
I don’t need a love that I can live with
I want the one I can’t live without

And just because I won’t settle don’t mean I won’t settle down
I don’t need a love that I can live with
I want the one I can’t live without
No I can’t live without

Northern Girl

Grew up drivin’ on black ice
Spinnin’ in circles under Northern Lights
Laughter steamin’
Small town dreamin’
Digging tunnels in the deep snow
Sheltered from the shiver of a ten below
And I’m right at home

I’m a Northern girl, wild and free
I’ve got four strong winds to carry me
I’ve been east to west and all around the world
But I’ll always be a Northern girl

Little cottage on a big lake
Sunshine would be a shame to waste
Warm days won’t last
Come and go fast
Bonfire in the moonlight
People I’ve known all of my life
That’s where I belong

I’m a Northern girl, wild and free
I’ve got four strong winds to carry me
I’ve been east to west and all around the world
But I’ll always be a Northern girl

Where I come from
What I’m made of
Where I wanna be
You can take me out of there but you can’t take it out of me

Northern girl, wild and free
I’ve got four strong winds to carry me
I’ve been east to west and all around the whole wide world
But I’ll always be a Northern girl

I’m a Northern girl, Northern girl
True North, strong & free
Carry me
I’m a Northern girl

Beautiful & Broken

Digging in, I see you spinning south
Not again, it’s such a long way out
When I think of all the time we might have spent
Having better days I wonder where it all went wrong

Like a bird in a gilded cage
Paralyzed by the love and rage
Every time I stick my head back in the sand
You show up holding your heart in your hand, again

And it’s been a test of will and mind
But I’d do it all again
We’ve been through the best and worst of times
And I still call you friend
Even when you’re beautiful and broken

Just believe, everything is fine
Drink it down, like a good red wine
Let the peace of knowing nothing’s gonna change
Bring you comfort, let it guide you through the fear and pain

And it’s been a test of will and mind
But I’d do it all again
We’ve been through the best and worst of times
And I still call you friend
Even when you’re beautiful and broken

Broken…
Broken…

Lonesome's Last Call

He drinks while he stares
At the smoke in the air
For him, time seems to crawl
He’s got no one at home
So he sits there alone
Waiting on lonesome’s last call

She came in by chance
Longing to dance
She once was the belle of the ball
But flowers will fade
She’s showing touches of gray
And she’s waiting on lonesome’s last call

While the fiddles are playing
The dance floor is swaying
To the beat of an old fashioned waltz
Their watching the hands of the clock on the wall
And waiting on lonesome’s last call

Soon the lights will go on
But the empty they’ve known
Won’t be felt in this moment at all
There was love in the air
And it found their hearts there
Waiting on lonesome’s last call

While the fiddles are playing
The dance floor is swaying
To the beat of an old fashioned waltz
Their watching the hands of the clock on the wall
And waiting on lonesome’s last call
They’re waiting on lonesome’s last call

The Good Was Great

Running my fingers
Slowly through your locks of ebony
Hearing you sing “Blackbird” in the shower
Just a little bit off key
Ain’t that just like me?
And my selective memory

To forget about the hurt, the tears, and the lies
Forget slammin’ doors, and a hundred goodbyes
I miss you like crazy, make no mistake
The bad was bad baby, but the good was great

We’d break up just to make up
Then we’d do it all again
But the moments that we made love
I never wanted it to end
Leave the bitter, keep the sweet
That’s the part I’ll, take with me

And forget about the hurt, the tears, and the lies
Forget slammin’ doors, and a hundred goodbyes
I miss you like crazy, make no mistake
The bad was bad baby, but the good was great

We came so close, a real almost
And that’s the honest truth
All that said, I don’t regret
One day of loving you…

I miss you like crazy, make no mistake
I miss you like crazy, what can I say
The bad was bad baby, but the good was great
The good was great

Smile

She packed my lunch up in a box for my first day of school
I said I wish you could go with me today
She said you’re gonna be alright just like I promised you
Just remember any time you feel afraid

I want you to smile
And know you’re not alone
Dry those little eyes
I’ll be here when you come home
I’m always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It’s only for a while
So I want you to smile

She packed my suitcase in the trunk when I turned 18
And drove me all the way to Tennessee
She said I know you’re gonna make it, I’ve got faith in you
And while you’re out there chasin’ down your dreams

I want you to smile
And know you’re not alone
Dry those little eyes
I’ll be there when you come home
I’m always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It’s only for a while
So I want you to smile

She fought for three long years and didn’t wanna leave
No matter what they told her, she still believed
So she used the tools God gave her
But in the end they couldn’t save her
As I sat there by her bed watchin’ her sleep
She must have heard a tear roll down my cheek
That’s when she said to me

I want you to smile
And know you’re not alone
Dry those little eyes
I’ll be there when you come home
I’m always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It’s only for a while
So I want you to smile

We're Here for a Good Time

A very good friend of mine
Told me something the other day
I’d like to pass it on to you,
’Cause I believe what he said to be true

He said:
We’re here for a good time
Not a long time (not a long time)
So have a good time
The sun can’t shine everyday

And the sun is shinin’,
In this rainy city,
And the sun is shinin’,
Ooh isn’t a pity?
That every year has it’s share of tears,
Every now and then it’s gotta rain

We’re here for a good time
Not a long time (not a long time)
So have a good time
The sun can’t shine everyday

And the sun is shinin’,
In this rainy city,
And the sun is shinin’,
Ooh isn’t a pity?
That every year has it’s share of tears,
Every now and then it’s gotta rain

We’re here for a good time
Not a long time (not a long time)
So have a good time
The sun can’t shine everyday

Flowers In Snow

How many heartaches
Until the bough breaks
Only so much I can bend
So tired of crying
Hell bent on trying
Over and over again

Another season fading
Nothing new to show
We squander our love
And still wonder why it won’t grow
We’re planting flowers in snow

The ground is still frozen
North wind keeps blowing
Praying for gray to turn blue
Winter seems longer
Hurt’s even stronger
The farther we drift from the truth

Another season fading
Nothing new to show
We squander our love
And still wonder why it won’t grow
We’re planting flowers in snow

You can’t be someone you’re not
Something I wished and forgot
No chance of changing
Doing the same thing
Here goes another last shot

Another season fading
Nothing new to show
We squander our love
And still wonder why it won’t grow
We’re planting flowers in snow

We’re planting flowers in snow
