Where You Are

length: 3:54
writer: Catt Gravitt, James LeBlanc
There you are standing strong
I'm a leaf holding on
You believe like a child
In this fire running wild
Oh I love how you see right to the heart of me

You're a waterfall washing over me
I'm a thirsty man let me drink you in
I am on my way
You're a mountain top

When I reach for you
Your love lifts me up
And all that I want is to be
Where you are

I'm the frozen ground
You're the warm sunlight
Shining down on me
Baby, just in time

I have never been in love like this
Oh, you move my soul every time we kiss
And I love how you heal
I can't believe how alive I feel

You're a waterfall washing over me
I'm a thirsty man let me drink you in
I am on my way
You're a mountain top

When I reach for you
Your love lifts me up
And all that I want is to be
Where you are

Bless the Broken Road

length: 3:48
composer: Bobby Boyd, Marcus Hummon, Jeff Hanna
writer: Bobby Boyd, Marcus Hummon, Jeff Hanna
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through

I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yes it did

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
And others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know it's true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yeah

And now I'm rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
Ooh, ooh
That led me straight to you

Then I Did

length: 3:13
writer: Steve Robson, Jeffrey Steele
I thought about calling you when I got off the plane
Every time I see this city through the clouds I get that way
Call me crazy for missing you like this but I do
By now I figured you had all your numbers changed

It's been at least a year since I called you up to say
We need to talk I got this job and I think I'm going to take it
'Cause I been waiting all my life
For a break like this

It's my chance of a lifetime I just know it is
I gotta go find these dreams
Was the last thing that I said
And then I did

I can see clear to the mountains as I head up our old street
I remember how we'd call in sick on days like these
And turn the music up roll the windows down and just drive
You talked me outta givin' up on myself so many times
Convinced me to get in while I could regrets hang heavy on the mind
But you never doubted me you kept pushing me

Saying you've been waiting all your life for a break like this
It's your chance of a lifetime you just know it is
You gotta go find those dreams
Was the last thing that you said
And then I did

But you were wrong
Love was what I wanted all along
And now you're gone

I thought about calling you when I got off the plane
Every time I see this city through the clouds I get that way

But you were wrong
Love was what I wanted all along

Feels Like Today

length: 3:22
writer: Wayne Hector, Steve Robson
Woke up this morning
With this feeling inside me that I can't explain
Like a weight that I've carried
Been carried away, away

But I know something is coming
I don't know what it is
But I know it's amazing, can save me
My time is coming
And I'll find my way out of this longest drought

[Chorus]
It feels like today I know it feels like today
I'm sure it's the one thing that's missin'
The one thing I'm wishin'
Life's sacred blessin' in me
It feels like today I know
Feels like today

You treat life like a picture
But it's not a moment that's frozen in time
It's not gonna wait
Til you make up your mind, at all

So while this storm is breakin'
While there's light at the end of the tunnel
Keep running towards it
Releasing the pressure, that's my heartache
Soon this dam will break

[Chorus]

Feels like, feels like your life changes
Feels like, feels like your life changes

It's the one thing that's missin'
The one thing you're wishin'
Life's sacred blessin'
It feels like today I know

Feels like, feels like your life changes
Feels like, feels like your life changes

Fast Cars and Freedom

length: 4:24
writer: Gary LeVox, Wendell Mobley, Neil Thrasher
Starin' at you takin' off your makeup
Wondering why you even put it on
I know you think you do but, baby, you don't need it
Wish that you could see what I see it when it's gone
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder

[Chorus]
Wait, baby, don't move, right there it is
T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold, but we gave love a chance
Yeah, yeah, to me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset river bank first time feeling

Yeah, smile and shake your head as if you don't believe me
I'll just sit right here and let you take me back
I'm on that gravel road, look at me
On my way to pick you up; you're standing on the front porch
Looking just like that, remember that?

I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder

[Chorus]

I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset river bank first time feeling

When the Sand Runs Out

length: 3:47
writer: Brad Crisler, James LeBlanc
I spent the morning at an old friend's grave
Flowers and Amazing Grace, he was a good man
He spent his whole life spinnin' his wheels
Never knowin' how the real thing feels
He never took a chance or took the time to dance
And I stood there thinking as I said goodbye
Today is the first day of the rest of my life

I'm gonna stop lookin' back and start movin' on
And learn how to face my fears
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
I want to leave something here

[Chorus]
Go out on a ledge, with out any net
That's what I'm gonna be about
Yeah I want to be runnin'
When the sand runs out

'Cause people do it everyday
Promise themselves they're gonna change
I've been there, but I'm changin' from the inside out

That was then and this is now
I'm a new man, yeah, I'm a brand new man
And when they carve my stone they'll write these words
"Here lies a man who lived life for all that its worth"

I'm gonna stop lookin' back and start movin' on
Learn how to face my fears
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
I want to leave something here

Go out on a ledge, with out any net
That's what I'm gonna be about
Yeah I want to be runnin'
When the sand runs out

And as the cold wind blows
Across the graveyard
I think I hear the voice
Of my old friend
Whisper in my ear

[Chorus]

I want to be runnin' when
The sand runs out
Ooo, yes I do

Here's to You

length: 3:39
writer: Jay DeMarcus, Wendell Mobley, Neil Thrasher
They got three in the front and four in the back of a civic
Camped out all night on the sidewalk just to get tickets
With their hands on the fence in the back by the buses and the limousines
Just to get a glance at a drummer or singer yeah anything
And they come from miles around
For that moment when the lights go out
And they scream

It's the girls in the front row singin'
It's the boys with the wheels that bring them
Its lighters in the air and you guys up there
You're the heart and soul and the reason we do what we do
Here's to you

There's a silver tongued blonde trying to sweet talk her way back stage
There's a mom and a dad in the aisle not acting their age
There a wet Corvette red lipstick print a on Coors Light cup
And judging by the way she's dancing I'd say she's had enough

The guitars come alive
And you make us wanna stay all night
And they scream

It's the girls in the front row singin'
It's the boys with the wheels that bring them
Its lighters in the air and you guys up there
You're the heart and soul and the reason we do what we do
Here's to you, here's to you

The Day Before You

length: 4:07
composer: Matthew West
lyricist: Matthew West
I had all but given up on finding
The one that I could fall into
On the day before you
I was ready settled for
Less than love and not much more
There was no such thing as a dream come true
Oh, but that was all the day before you

Now you're here and everything changes
Suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
And find out this promise is true
I would never have to go back to
The day before you

In your eyes I see forever
Makes me wish that my life never knew
The day before you

The Heaven knows those years without you
Shaping my heart for the that day I found you
You're the reason for all that I've been through
Then I'm thankful for the day before you

Now you're here and everything changes
Suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
And find out this promise is true
I would never have to go back to
The day before you

Break Away

length: 3:12
writer: Joe Don Rooney, Randy Cantor, Dennis Matkosky
Opened my eyes this morning with a smile on my face
My arms wrapped around you, took me away
And it got me to thinkin', what we need to do
Is take a Sunday drive, and drive on through
Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday too

Let's disappear, gotta jet out of here
Feel the wind across our face
We'll have some fun, gonna dance on the run
It's a perfect day to break away

We'll hit Tulsa by Tuesday, follow the stars above
Spend the weekend in Vegas and gamble on sweet, sweet love
It don't matter what we do, as long as I'm with you

Let's disappear, gotta jet out of here
Feel the wind across our face
We'll have some fun, gonna dance on the run
It's a perfect day to break away

Yeah, yeah
Break away
Yeah, yeah

Let's disappear, gotta jet out of here
Feel the wind across our face
We'll have some fun, gonna dance on the run
It's a perfect day to break away

Let's disappear, gotta jet out of here
Feel the wind across our face
We'll have some fun, gonna dance on the run
It's a perfect day...

Girl, it's a perfect day to break away

Holes

length: 4:19
writer: Gregory Becker, John Paul White
There's three in the wall from those pictures in the closet
Two in the bedroom from that night I lost it
One deep inside me determined to stay
They don't get any bigger but they don't go away

Holes in and around me I keep falling back into
Holes digging its around me
God knows what I'm gonna do
To fill in these holes left by you
Left by you

I pour drink after drink but nothing hit bottom
I've been on my knees admitted my problem
The love that we made still barely an echo
I'll try anything in these vacant hollow

Holes in and around me I keep falling back into
Holes digging its around me
God knows what I'm gonna do
To fill in these holes left by you
Left by you

There's two through my hands and one through my feet
From this cross that I bear until the day that I see

Oklahoma-Texas Line

length: 3:03
writer: Jay DeMarcus, Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney
Got an old dog, it don't like me much
That thing starts to bark his head off every time we touch
Sittin' on the porch listenin' to the radio
We sing every single song we know

Even the ones we don't
When she moves a little closer
She puts her hand in mine
Oh what I wouldn't give to stop the hands of time

[Chorus]
She's got long blonde hair and deep blue eyes
I got all I ever need when at girl is by my side
Everything I love is there inside
A little brick house on the Oklahoma-Texas Line

She's got a part time job at the Tastee-freeze
She took the weekend off to spend a little bit of time with me
I got an old car we drove to the edge of town
We stopped by old man Millers' farm
Just to watch the world spin around

And she moves a little closer
She puts her lips to mine
Ain't funny how the good Lord out does himself sometimes

[Chorus]

Everything I love is there inside
A little brick house with a black top drive
Big oak tree with our names carved on the side

[Chorus]

Oh here they come
Long blonde hair and deep blue eyes
Everything I love...

Love Another Day

length: 3:19

It's 3 AM and you're still wide awake
Wondering how much more your broken heart can take
All he left you with was shattered dreams
I know it's hard to see right now, it's not as bad as it seems

You'll live to love another day
Happiness is on it's way
Hold on
It won't be long
I know the pain you're living in
Sometimes you've got to lose to win
It's okay
Don't you worry baby
We all live to love another day

I know you say you've lost your faith in love
And it's not written in the stars above
I wouldn't tell you anything but the truth
I've been where you are
And I'm living proof

You'll live to love another day
Happiness is on it's way
Hold on
It won't be long
I know the pain you're living in
Sometimes you've got to lose to win
It's okay
Don't you worry baby
We all live to love another day

What's here right now didn't come to stay
The sun is gonna rise again and the clouds will roll away
Believe me when I say

You'll live to love another day
Happiness is on it's way
Hold on, hold on
I know the pain you're living in
Sometimes you've got to lose to win
It's okay
Don't you worry baby
We all live to love another day

Don't you worry baby
We all live to love another day


Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me

length: 3:38
Girl, you're getting that look in your eyes
and it's starting to worry me
See, I ain't ready for no family ties
no woman's gonna hurry me

Just keep it friendly girl
'cause I don't wanna leave
If you start clinging to me
you know that I can't breathe

Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me
Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me
'Cause I'll just use you and I'll set you free
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me

You've been my hot lovin' woman
And it's hot where you've been touching me
And I can tell by your trembling lips
You've been seeing just a little too much of me

Now don't let your life get all tangled up in mine,
'Cause I'll just use you, I can't take no clinging vine

Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me
Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me
'Cause I'll just use you and I'll set you free
Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me

Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me
no, no, no, Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me, no
'Cause I'll just use you and I'll set you free, set you free
Baby, baby don't get hooked on me

The Man In Love With You

length: 4:27

If you think I've second guessed it
Or for one minute I'd regret it
This life with you
No, there's never been a moment
Not one time I haven't known it
What I have with you
You hold my heart
Deep inside of every single part

[Chorus]
If I could be anything
I wish that I could be, oh baby
If I could rule all the kingdoms
Maybe even sail the seven seas
If I could do all the things
I only dream that I could do
I'd still be
The man in love with you

I try every day to show it
Just to make sure that you know it
I'm here to stay
And you'll never have a reason
To ever think I'm leaving
There's just no way
It's no mystery
How I feel
Baby, can't you see

[Chorus]

I can't go places
I always see traces
Of the only thing in life I'll ever need

If I could do all the things
I only dream that I could do
I'd still be
The man in love with you
I'd still be
The man in love with you


Skin

length: 4:22
writer: Joe Henry, Doug Johnson
Sara Beth is scared to death
To hear what the doctor will say
She hasn't been well, since the day that she fell
And the bruise it just won't go away

So she sits and she waits with her mother and dad
And flips through an old magazine
Till the nurse with the smile stands at the door
And says will you please come with me

Sara Beth is scared to death
'Cause the doctor just told her the news
Between the red cells and white, something's not right
But we're gonna take care of you

Six chances in ten, it won't come back again
With the therapy we're gonna try
It's just been approved, it's the strongest there is
And I think that we caught it in time
And Sara Beth closes her eyes.

She dreams she's dancing
Around and around without any cares
And her very first love is holding her close
And a soft wind is blowing her hair

Sara Beth is scared to death
As she sits holding her mom
'Cause it would be a mistake for someone to take
A girl with no hair to the prom

For just this morning, right there on her pillow
Was the cruelest of any surprise
And she cried when she gathered it all in her hands
The proof that she couldn't deny
And Sara Beth closes her eyes

And she dreams she's dancing
Around and around without any cares
And her very first love is holding her close
And a soft wind is blowing her hair

It's quarter to seven, that boy's at the door
And her daddy ushers him in
And when he takes off his cap
They all start to cry
'Cause this morning where his hair had been
Softly she touches just skin

And they go dancing, around and around
Without any cares
And her very first true love is holding her close
And for a moment she isn't scared
