These Days

length: 4:16
writer: Steve Robson, Jeffrey Steele, Danny Wells

Hey Baby, Is that you?
Wow your hair got so long.
Yea, yea! I love it, I really do.

Norma Jean ain't that the song
We'd sing in the car
Drivin' down town,
Top down makin' the rounds,
Checkin' out the bands on Dull Hinney Avenue.

Yea life throws you curves,
But you learned to swerve.
Me I swung and I miss
And the next thing you know I'm reminiscing.
Dreaming old dreams,
Wishing old wishes,
Like we would be back again.

[Chorus]
I wake up and tear drops,
They fall down like rain.
I put on that old song we danced to and then,
I head off to my job,
Guess not much has changed.
Punch the clock.
Head for home.
Check the phone,
Just in case.
Go to bed,
Dream of you,
That's what I'm doing these days.

Yea that's what I'm doing.

Someone told me, after college,
You ran off to Vegas,
You married a rodeo cowboy...why
That ain't the girl I knew.

Me I've been a few places,
Mostly here and there once or twice.
Still sortin' out life, but I'm doing alright.
Yea, It's good to see you too.

Well hey girl, you're late.
And those planes they don't wait.
But if you ever come back around
This sleepy old town,
Promise me you'll stop in
To see an old friend,
And until then

[Chorus]

[Repeat x3]
I wake up and tear drops,
They fall down like rain.
I put on that old song we danced to and then,

Too Good Is True

length: 3:20
writer: Jay DeMarcus, Danny Orton
I guess it's cause and effect
Your heart and mine
The way that we connect
Keeps blowing my mind
There you go again, it never ends
What you do to me

[Chorus]
That I have seen the light of day
Love is finally going my way
Is it too good to be true
Give me one more kiss, one more touch
Baby, I just can't get enough of you
This time too good is true

All of a sudden
I'm not who I used to be
I had my heart locked
But you held the key
And you find a way, everday
To show me even more

[Chorus]

Some people say we're too good to be true
But they don't get to be loved by you

[Chorus]

Oh this time, too good is true
Yes it is, yeah

I Melt

length: 3:55
writer: Gary LeVox, Wendell Mobley, Neil Thrasher
When you light those candles
Up there on that mantle
Setting the mood
I just lie there staring, silently preparing
To love on you
I can feel the heat from across the room
Ain't it wild what a little flame can make you wanna do

I melt
Every time you look at me that way
It never fails
Any time, any place
This burn in me is the coolest thing that I've ever felt
I melt

Don't know how you do it
I love the way I lose it every time
And what's even better
Is knowing that forever you're all mine
The closer you get, the more my body aches
One little stare from you is all it takes

I melt
Every time you look at me that way
It never fails
Any time, any place
This burn in me is the coolest thing that I've ever felt
I melt

I melt
Every time you look at me that way
It never fails
Any time, any place
This burn in me is the coolest thing that I've ever felt
I melt

Every time you look at me that way
I melt
I melt

Mayberry

length: 4:34
composer: Arlos Smith
lyricist: Arlos Smith
(Arlos Smith)

Sometimes it feels like this world
Is spinning faster
Than it did in the old days
So naturally, we have more
Natural disasters
From the strain of a fast pace
Sunday was a day of rest
Now it's one more day for progress
And we can't slow down 'cause
More is best
It's all an endless process

(Well) I miss Mayberry
Sitting on the porch drinking
Ice cold Cherry Coke
Where everything is black and white
Picking on a six string
Where people pass by and you call
Them by their first name
Watching the clouds roll by
Bye, bye

Sometimes I can hear this old
Earth shouting
Through the trees as the wind blows
That's when I climb up here on
This mountain
To look through God's window
Now I can't fly but I got two feet
That get me high up here
Above the noise and city streets
My worries disappear

(Well) I miss Mayberry
Sitting on the porch drinking
Ice cold Cherry Coke
Where everything is black and white
Picking on a six string
Where people pass by and you call
Them by their first name
Watching the clouds roll by
Bye, bye

Sometimes I dream I'm driving
Down an old dirt road
Not even listed on a map
I pass a dad and son carrying a
Fishing pole
But I always wake up every time I try
To turn back

(Well) I miss Mayberry
Sitting on the porch drinking
Ice cold Cherry Coke
Where everything is black and white
Picking on a six string
Where people pass by and you call
Them by their first name
Watching the clouds roll by
Bye, bye

Bye, bye
(I miss Mayberry, I miss Mayberry)

Love You Out Loud

length: 3:06
writer: Lonnie Wilson, Brett James
I have always been a little shy
I've always been the quiet type till now
And I never let my feelings show
I never let anybody know
Just how much I was so deep in love
But now that you're in my arms

I'm gonna stand on a rooftop, climb up a mountaintop
Baby, scream and shout
I want to sing it on the radio, show it on a video
Baby, leave no doubt
I want the whole world to know just what I'm all about
I love to love you out loud

You keep bringing out the free in me
What you do to my heart just makes me melt
And I don't think I can resist
But I've never been one to kiss and tell
A love this true can't be subdued
So I'm gonna let out a yell

I'm gonna stand on a rooftop, climb up a mountaintop
Baby, scream and shout
I want to sing it on the radio, show it on a video
Baby, leave no doubt
I want the whole world to know just what I'm all about
I love to love you out loud

Baby, I want the whole world to see
Just how good your love looks on me

I'm gonna stand on a rooftop, climb up a mountaintop
Baby, scream and shout
I want to sing it on the radio, show it on a video
Baby, leave no doubt
I want the whole world to know just what I'm all about
I love to love you out loud

Baby, I love to love you out loud
Yeah, I love to love you out loud

Dry County Girl

length: 3:17
writer: Marcus Hummon, Chuck Jones
A tall drink of water in a cotton dress
That preacher's daughter, she sure is blessed
As sunlight passes through the fabric so soft
You can imagine what goes through my thoughts
She says they'll be a time for all of that
When my dress is white and your suit is black

[Chorus]
There's so many fish in the sea
And I know it's a great big world
But I couldn't help but fall in love so hard
For my dry county girl
For my dry county girl, yeah

It's widely known that I have my flaws
While she's the Joan of Arkansas
Her lips won't touch the demon wine
But her eyes are full of pure moonshine
And I get drunk just holding her hand
I get high thinking I could be her man

[Chorus]

For my dry county girl
Lord, I fell so hard
For my dry county girl
For my dry county girl, yeah
Yeah, talking about my... [Fade]

Like I Am

length: 4:06
writer: Joe Don Rooney, Danny Orton
Lying here with you
I watch you while you sleep
The dawn is closing in
With every breath you breathe

I can feel the change
The change you've made in me
But will I ever see
All the things you see in me

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

When it comes to love
I may not know the rules
But there's one thing I know
My heart belongs to you, just you

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

You show me you love me
With a fire that burns deep inside

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

I am
I'll never understand
I don't think I'll ever understand
Why you love me
Why you love me just like I am

You

length: 4:08
writer: James LeBlanc, Brad Crisler
[Chorus]
Every road that I've been down
The only truth that I have found
There's only one thing I can't live without
You

I was searching for something I thought I would never find
Losing my mind
In and out of bad love, I though I was born to lose
Then came you
I thought I knew what the real thing was
But nothing shakes me like your love does
I've been hypnotized
Now I realize

[Chorus]

Every time I get lost in a temperamental mood
You still stay cool
Just when I think this life's about to drive me insane
You take the reins

Every time I feel I'm drifting off course
You're my compass, you're my one true north
In a mixed up world
You make sense to me world

[Chorus]

Yeah, every road baby
Leads me to you
And baby, that's all I need to know

[Chorus]

Every road that I've been down
The only truth that I have found
There's only one thing I can't live without
You

Every road that I've been down in my life
Every time I feel I'm taking off
Every road that I've been down in my life
Every road girl, leads me to you
Yes it did, yes it did
Every road girl
Every road leads me to you

Fallin' Upside Down

length: 2:34
writer: Derek George, John Tirro
There's no gravity up here
It's kind of hard to explain
Every time I'm holding you
It's like backwards rain, yeah

You lift me up like a kite on a string
Like a bird on newfound wings
So high on you, I'm floating and
Flying around
Your love's like fallin' upside down

You've got me so lightheaded
It's a dizzy mood
Spinning uncontrollably
And gaining altitude

You lift me up like a kite on a string
Like a bird on newfound wings
So high on you, I'm floating and
Flying around
Your love's like fallin' upside down

Look at me
Used to be, I could keep my feet
On the ground
When you said you could take
Me higher
You weren't playing around
(You weren't playing around)

You lift me up like a kite on a string
Like a bird on newfound wings
So high on you, I'm floating and
Flying around
Your love's like fallin' upside down

Shine On

length: 3:02
writer: Jay DeMarcus, Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney
I was lost in darkness and sinking sand
Well I was barely nothing, a broken man
But you picked up the pieces of my heart in your hand
Then you came and showed to me love's second chance

[Chorus]
Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Whenever something's missing
You're exactly what I need
Your love has shown me the light and now I finally see
Shine on, shine on, shine on me

Lord knows that I'm not perfect but I sure do try
And I see the man that I can be in your eyes
Well there are times I still get lost in yesterday
But you out the past behind me and you light my way

[Chorus]

Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Won't you keep on shining, yeah
Won't you keep on shining your love
Down on me, baby

Won't you keep on shining, yeah
Won't you keep on shining your love
Yeah, you're exactly what I need, baby
Yeah, you are

My Worst Fear

length: 3:55
writer: Al Anderson, Anthony Smith
Last night you gave me a kiss
You didn't know it, but I was awake when you did
You were quiet, you were gonna let me sleep
So I just laid there pretending to be

You said some things you didn't
Know I could hear
And the words "I love you" never
Sounded so sincere

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

This morning I rolled out of bed
Recalling all the sweet things you said
This was the day I was gonna hurt you bad
Called out your name, but you
Didn't answer back
I searched the house to find out what was wrong
Like a ton of bricks, it hit me you were gone

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

All along I knew that there was
Something missing
And only one thing left to do
I had to leave behind this life that
We'd been living
But the only thing that left was you

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But being alone is my worst fear
And staying here is my worst fear
