How I Feel

I'm Alright

After all was said and done
There was nothing left to do
The hardest mile I ever walked
Was the one I walked away from you
So maybe I’m a little ragged around the edges
And I’ve been keeping a little more to myself these days but

[Chorus]
I’m alright
Shot down but I’m still standing
I’m alright
A little banged up from the fall
But I’m alright
Still shaky from the landing
I’m alright, after all

You know it’s really not that bad
No matter how bad it might feel
Cause there ain’t nothing time won’t fix
This ain’t nothing that some time won’t heal
So maybe I’ve been walking a little wounded
I move a little bit slower now but that’s okay cause…

[Chorus]
I’m alright
Shot down but I’m still standing
I’m alright
A little banged up from the fall
But I’m alright
Still shaky from the landing
I’m alright, after all

And every now and then I think about you
Oh, every now and then I cross the line

[Chorus]
I’m alright
Shot down but I’m still standing
I’- alright
A little banged up from the fall
But I’m alright
Still shaky from the landing
I’m alright, after all

I’m alright, after all

Now That I Found You

How can I believe
That my heart would find someone like you
You see me, the real me
No in bewteens, I had nowhere to hide
You took away the walls around me
Made me feel safe to share my truth.

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you.
Now that I found you.

I do believe we’re meant to be
Our chemistry will last forever
And through the years
We’ll see some tears
We’ll conquer fears
And together we will grow
Looking in your eyes
They tell me
I no longer have to feel alone.

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you.
Now that I found you.

You see me, the real me
You believe in me.

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you.
Now that I found you…

Everytime I Cry

You call and wake me up, the way you always do
Say you miss me and you’re sorry, deja vu
You push the button in the heart you know so well
The wall starts coming down then I remind myself

Everytime I think you might have changed
Put aside the anger and the blame
Make myself believe that there’s a way to work it out
Everytime you say let’s try again
Begging me to let you back in
Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

If only promises could just erase the past
I could open up my heart enough to take you back
But we’ve been down that road
Time and time again
I’ve learned the hard way how the story always ends

Everytime I think you might have changed
Put aside the anger and the blame
Make myself believe that there’s a way to work it out
Everytime you say let’s try again
Begging me to let you back in
Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

Everytime I think you might have changed
Put aside the anger and the blame
Make myself believe that there’s a way to work it out
Everytime you say let’s try again
Begging me to let you back in
Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

That's How I Feel

What’s goin’ on in your head
You haven’t heard a word I’ve said
I think we need to talk
Cause you turn your emotions off
And that’s something I don’t understand

Cause that’s how I feel
With my heart
Every beat, every part
Way down deep in my soul
I live and breathe to let you know
That’s how I feel

You think the silence buys you time
To make things clearer in your mind
But I can’t live in the dark
Not knowing who you are
So tell me how you feel inside

Cause that’s how I feel
With my heart
Every beat, every part
Way down deep in my soul
I live and breathe to let you know
That’s how I feel

That’s how I get to know you
If you’ll only let it go
You’ll find its not as scary as it seems

Cause that’s how I feel
With my heart
Every beat, every part
Way down deep in my soul
I live and breathe to let you know
That’s how I feel

That’s how I feel
That’s how I feel
That’s how I feel
That’s how I feel

You're Easy On The Eyes

Shoulda known it was you knocking on my door
At half past a heartache at quarter to four
Were you starting to worry I was finally getting over you
I almost forgot you looked so fine
If you told me some lies, it would be like old times
Just getting to see you is almost worth the things you do.

You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
‘Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart.

I got to admit to you got a smile
That really reeled me in for awhile
But it ain’t funny, honey, what you put me through
So why don’t you send me your photograph
It’d hurt a lot less than taking you back
Then I could still have my favorite part of you.

You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
‘Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart.

You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
‘Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart.

‘Cause you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
‘Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart.

You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart.

Now I realize
You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart…

Getting Even With The Blues

I think I’m gonna smile for a while
Pull the curtain back and let some moonlight in
Gossip on the phone with my old friends
Like I used to do

I’m gonna put your memory away
Show this achin in my heart a thing or two
Cause tonight I’m getting even with the blues

That lonely feelings had it’s way
Ever since the day I heard you say goodbye
The hurting thinks its found a home
But I’m gonna let it know it ain’t welcome here tonight

Tomorrow that old cloud may come around
And there won’t be anything that I can do
But tonight I’m getting even with the blues

That lonely feelings had it’s way
Ever since the day I heard you say goodbye
The hurting thinks its found a home
But I’m gonna let it know it ain’t welcome here tonight

Tomorrow that old cloud may come around
And there won’t be anything that I can do
But tonight I’m getting even with the blues
Oh, tonight I’m getting even with the blues

Till I Get There

There’s a place I’m going to
Where I’ll be over you
And I’m gonna go till I get there
Long as the road don’t run out
Long as my heart don’t let me down
I’ll keep the wheels turning ’round
Till I get there

I don’t know when I don’t know how
But I’m finding my freedome
And that’s somewhere I’ve never gone
Through these tears, I see now
It’s gonna take leavin’
For me to know where I belong

There’s a place I’m going to
Where I’ll be over you
And I’m gonna go till I get there
Long as the road don’t run out
Long as my heart don’t let me down
I’ll keep the wheels turning ’round
Till I get there

It’s just beyond the edge of my sorrow
I’ll turn the key and I’ll be on my way
With the help of my old friend tomorrow
I’m gonna put a million miles on yesterday

There’s a place I’m going to
Where I’ll be over you
And I’m gonna go till I get there
Long as the road don’t run out
Long as my heart don’t let me down
I’ll keep the wheels turning ’round
Till I get there

Not Getting Over You

I woke up at three a.m.
And stumbled in the dark
I don’t sleep much anyway
Since we’ve been apart
But that’s just one of many things
I’ve adjusted to so well
Cause I surrendered long ago
And now finally I can tell

I’m getting used to
Not getting over you
Not wondering how to shake
A hurt that won’t go away
Not knowing where to turn
I something I thought I’d never learn
It’s really nothing new
I’m just getting used to not getting over you

I head down highway40
Past the place we used to go
I don’t stop to cry anymore
I just drive by real slow

And I don’t feel the dagger
When somebody speaks your name
I guess that I’m just growing more
Accustomed to the pain

I’m getting used to
Not getting over you
Not wondering how to shake
A hurt that won’t go away
Not knowing where to turn
I something I thought I’d never learn
It’s really nothing new
I’m just getting used to not getting over you

Not knowing where to turn
Is something I thought I’d never learn
It’s really nothing new
I’m just getting used to not getting over
A feeling that I can’t lose
I’m just getting used to not getting over you

This Ole Heart

This ole heart was made like a train
But this ole heart is flesh and blood
Gets in trouble when it cares too much
Keeps it hangin’ on when it oughta give up
On something that’s past

I wish it had wheels and I wish it had wings
Cause I could sure use just one of those things
Then this danged ole fallin’ out love
Wouldn’t hurt so bad
But this ole heart ain’t made like that

If this ole heart was like an ole tin roof
Beaten by the rain, weathered and used
A fresh coat of paint would make it new
If this ole heart was lik an ole tin roof

But this ole heart is felsh and blood
Gets in trouble when it cares too much
Keeps it hangin’ on when it oughta give up
On something that’s past

I wish it had wheels and I wish it had wings
Cause I could sure use just one of those things
Then this danged ole fallin’ out love
Wouldn’t hurt so bad
But this ole heart ain’t made like that

Cure For The Common Heartache

This morning I’m aching all over
Can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t rest
Oh I need to go see a doctor
For this achin down deep in my chest

Is there a cure
For the common Heartache
An unknown prescription
Any loser can take
I’d be the first to become addicted
If there’s a cure
For the common heartache

I know right where I got it
This sickness that’s got me laid up
I don’t have the strength now to fight it
This old condition called love

Is there a cure
For the common Heartache
An unknown prescription
Any loser can take
I’d be the first to become addicted
If there’s a cure
For the common heartache

Is there a cure
For the Common Heartache

Me Not Loving You

Do you get the feeling
Even when you’re not alone
There’s a memory
Making itself at home
And it don’t let loose no matter what you do
Well thats me not loving you

Lately are you sleeping
And you got the window closed
But there’s a crack somewhere
Cause you can feel the cold wind blow
And it gets to you no matter what you do
That’s me not loving you

Didn’t I tell you when you left
You never would forget the love you could have kept
Now everynight in your empty room
The only thing you’re holding is the truth
If you hear a heartbeat
Where there really should be two
That’s me not loving you

When all you hear is silence
Then you’ll know the voice is mine
If the phone don’t ring
And the bell don’t chime
And that someone new, you never get used to
Well, that’s me not loving you

Didn’t I tell you when you left
You never would forget the love you could have kept
Now everynight in your empty room
The only thing you’re holding is the truth
If you hear a heartbeat
Where there really should be two
That’s me not loving you

Unsung Hero

You sit in the shadows
You don’t complain or criticize
And while the world may see me as a fool
They’re not looking through your eyes
No questions asked, you’re there when I need you
With a love that inspires me to be everything you deserve

‘Cause you’re my unsung hero
And I know it’s not easy to walk in your shoes
Day after day you continue to amaze me
Now I sing this song of love for you

While others long to steal the spotlight
You work your magic quietly
Cause you’re not in it for the glory
The love you give comes naturally
I may not have much, but what I have I give to you
And this song that I sing is my gift
And I swear that I mean every word

‘Cause you’re my unsung hero
And I know it’s not easy to walk in your shoes
Day after day you continue to amaze me
Now I sing this song of love for you

‘Cause you’re my unsung hero
And I know it’s not easy to walk in your shoes
Day after day you continue to amaze me
Now I sing this song of love for you

Now I sing this song of love
For you
