Some Things I Know

length: 3:06

There's some things I know to be true
Snow is white and the ocean is blue
Rain is wet when it falls from the sky
And the stars come out every night
And just as sure as the sun will rise
The love is real you see in my eyes
Plant a seed and it will grow
Some things I know
There's some things in life I need
Water to drink, air to breathe
A place to rest when I need sleep
When I'm hungry, food to eat
As sure as I need the Lord above
That's how much I need your love
I need shelter from the cold
Some things I know
There's some things in life I want
A house with a porch, trees out front
Someone to talk with, someone to hold
And walk with as we grow old
And I want all my dreams to come true
And I want them all with you
And I just had to tell you so
Some things I know
There's some things I know to be true

A Little Past Little Rock

length: 4:17
I had to leave my life in Dallas
That town will always be you
In every crowd, on every corner,
Every face I'd see you

So with nothing more than a tank of gas
I drove away without looking back
And I guess that's how I got where I am
Going anywhere as fast as I can

Now I'm a little past Little Rock
Further down the line
Too soon to know what's up ahead
Too late to change my mind

I've got to keep my heart out of this
And both hands on the wheel
I'm learning more with every mile
Just how leaving feels

It's a lonely stretch of blacktop
Out into the blue
Don't know where I'll go
Or what I'll do

I'm a little past Little Rock,
But a long way from over you
These headlights on the highway
Disappear into the dark

And if I could have it my way
I'd go back to where you are
Oh, but I can't turn this thing around
And nothing short of breaking down

Is gonna get me off this road I'm on
But I'm still a far cry from gone
But I'm a little past Little Rock
Further down the line

Too soon to know what's up ahead
Too late to change my mind
I've got to keep my heart out of this
And both hands on the wheel

I'm learning more with every mile
Just how leaving feels
It's a lonely stretch of blacktop
Out into the blue

Don't know where I'll go
Or what I'll do
I'm a little past Little Rock,
But a long way from over you

I'm a little past Little Rock
But a long way from over you

(Now You See Me) Now You Don't

length: 2:41
Better take a good look before I disappear
Because I'm just about to be your used-to-be
You might catch a glimpse of my taillights in the dust
And if you notice something missin', well it's me
'Cause I tried and you lied
I cried and you stood by
Well, here's a little magic thing I do

Now you see me, now you don't
First you do but then you won't
Watch me vanish right before your eyes
You might think you see me there
In a cafe on a street somewhere
Yeah, that might be me but I'll be gone
Now you see me, now you don't

If you ever get the feelin' that it feels like deja vu
Because some stranger feels like someone that you know
Might be the color of her lipstick or the smell of her perfume
That sends a shiver all the way down to your toes
Don't blink 'cause it ain't yeah what you think
It's just your heart playing tricks on you

Now you see me, now you don't
First you do but then you won't
Watch me vanish right before your eyes
You might think you see me there
In a cafe on a street somewhere
Yeah, that might be me but I'll be gone
Now you see me, now you don't

You might think you see me there
In a cafe on a street somewhere
Yeah, that might be me, but I'll be gone
Now you see me, now you don't

Now you see me, now you don't
Now you see me, now you don't
Now you see me

I'd Rather Have What We Had

length: 3:19
It used to be red wine there in room 3-2-9
Over the river where we weren't well-known
Now it's two coffees then off to the office
Then back in the driveway and sittin' at home

Sneaking around with me
Or being tied down with me
Which one would you rather have
(Be honest)
Dying to be with me
Or watching TV with me
Is this what we wanted so bad
I'd rather have what we had

We carefully planned it
What our hearts demanded
No more motel rooms
No more cheatin' lies
Now we're lookin' at it
A neatly wrapped package
But open it up and there's no surprise

Sneaking around with me
Or being tied down with me
Which one would you rather have
(Be honest)
Dying to be with me
Or watching TV with me
Is this what we wanted so bad
I'd rather have what we had

I'd rather have what we had
I'd rather have what we had

The Man Who Made Mama Cry

length: 4:05
All you've ever been
Is a call every now and then
From some old pay phone
After you'd hang up
Lord, she'd take it rough
And want to be alone
I know you from the picture
Of you and her together
Taken at a fair in '68
You've gotta lot of nerve to think
You can walk right in and take her place

To me you're just the man who made my mama cry
Someone who broke a lot of promises in his time
All I know about you is how to live without you
And I can see I have your eyes
But all you've ever been
Is the man who made my mama cry

When she took off my training wheels
Held a job and cooked the meals
Where were you?
Don't even start
She did her part
And yours too
Now you're back to play the part
That was missin' in my heart
When I was growin' up
Well, you're a little late
I don't have the time to waste on catchin' up

To me you're just the man who made my mama cry
Someone who broke a lot of promises in his time
All I know about you is how to live without you
And I can see I have your eyes
But all you've ever been
Is the man who made my mama cry

All I know about you is how to live without you
And I can see I have your eyes
But all you've ever been
Is the man who made my mama cry

I'll Think of a Reason Later

length: 3:39
I heard he was gonna marry some girl from Denver
Then my sister came over, had the Sunday paper with her
There was the girl on the social page
Lookin' in love and all engaged
We decided she don't take a very good picture

It may be my family's redneck nature
Rubbin' off, bringin' out unladylike behavior
It sure ain't Christian to judge a stranger
But I don't like her
She may be an angel who spends all winter
Bringin' the homeless blankets and dinner
A regular Nobel peace prize winner
But I really hate her, I'll think of a reason later

I drew horns and blacked out her tooth with a marker
Childish, yes, but she made such a thin little target
I couldn't be happier on my own
But I've got the slightest of a jealous bone
And seein' her with him tends to enlarge it

It may be my family's redneck nature
Rubbin' off, bringin' out unladylike behavior
It sure ain't Christian to judge a stranger
But I don't like her
She may be an angel who spends all winter
Bringin' the homeless blankets and dinner
A regular Nobel peace prize winner
But I really hate her, I'll think of a reason later

Inside her head may lay all the answers
For curing diseases from baldness to cancer
Salt of the earth and a real good dancer
But I really hate her, I'll think of a reason later

Don't Tell Me

length: 4:04
Tell my heart to stop beating
Tell my mind not to think
Thrown a stone in the ocean
And tell that stone not to sink

Tell the world to stop turnin' around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin' down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Don't tell me to stop loving you

Tell the past to be forgotten
Tell my life not to exist
Tell a promise made to be unspoken
And my lips not to have been kissed

Tell the world to stop turnin' around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin' down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Don't tell me to stop loving you

I can't do it, I can't stop
It's something that love has sealed
Only the broken-hearted know the way I feel

Tell the world to stop turnin' around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin' down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Don't tell me to stop loving you

I Keep Forgetting

length: 3:37
If I see you on the street and start to cry
If it looks like I'm so lonesome I might die
If you can hear my heart just breaking right in two
Remind me once again who left who

I keep forgetting
That I don't need you now
It slips my mind
That's I'm the one who said we were through
I just can't seem to remember
It was me who walked out the door
I keep forgetting
I don't love you anymore

If your phone should ring in the middle of the night
If missin' you's a feelin' I can no longer fight
If I beg you please just give me one more try
Remind me I'm the one who said goodbye

I keep forgetting
That I don't need you now
It slips my mind
That's I'm the one who said we were through
I just can't seem to remember
It was me who walked out the door
I keep forgetting
I don't love you anymore

I keep forgetting
I don't love you anymore
Keep forgetting

If You're Ever Down in Dallas

length: 2:33
Well, I'm sure Fort Worth has seen it's share of heartached
But it's plain to see your heart's not broken now
You're in love with someone new and up on top of the world
You say you've seen the last of the lonely side of town

But if you're ever down in Dallas, darlin'
Wonderin' what to do
Just call on me, 'cause I've been there too
Maybe I could help
"Cause I know so well how it hurts to lose at love
If you're ever down in Dallas, look me up

Well, I gave up on our love and left you cryin'
But there's times we all make choices that we regret
So if you wind up lonely 'cause you've made the same mistake
I can take you all the places a fool goes to forget

But if you're ever down in Dallas, darlin'
Wonderin' what to do
Just call on me, 'cause I've been there too
Maybe I could help
"Cause I know so well how it hurts to lose at love
If you're ever down in Dallas, look me up
If you're ever down in Dallas, look me up

When the Wheels Are Coming Off

length: 3:41
We started down this road together
It was paved with hope and dreams of forever
We've been coasting for a while
And you act like nothing's wrong
But even I can tell when the wheels are comin' off

What isn't taken care of falls apart
Now we've got a pair of neglected broken hearts
We may get another mile or two before somebody walks
But even I can tell when the wheels are coming off

You've got to help me fix this
Oh, it's time to face the facts
We can't go on like we have been
And it's too late for turnin' back
When it comes down to what makes love work
I'll admit I'm lost
But even I can tell when the wheels are comin' off

You've got to help me fix this
Oh, it's time to face the facts
We can't go on like we have been
And it's too late for turnin' back
When it comes down to what makes love work
I'll admit I'm lost
But even I can tell when the wheels are comin' off

When it comes down to what makes love work
I'll admit I'm lost
But even I can tell when the wheels are comin' off

The Preacher Won't Have to Lie

length: 4:18
I used to believe what money could bring
Was worth more than anything else
But all that changed when I had a dream
And I got a good look at myself
I stood face to face with the ghost of my past
And the spirit what was to come
And they made it clear that one day I'd have to
Answer for what I had done
And I saw what I'd become

The choices you make
The chances you take
They'll follow you all of your life
I'm just tryin' to live so when I die
The preacher won't have to lie

I ain't no prophet and I ain't no saint
And I ain't made no great sacrifice
I just keep tryin' to carry my weight
I keep trying to do what is right
And it's hard to do right sometimes

The choices you make
The chances you take
They'll follow you all of your life
I'm just tryin' to live so when I die
The preacher won't have to lie

The choices you make
The chances you take
They'll follow you all of your life
I'm just tryin' to live so when I die
The preacher won't have to lie

Oh, the preacher won't have to lie
