  1. Kiss a Girl

    To kiss and tell, it’s just not my style.
    But the night is young, and it’s been awhile and she broke my heart, broke it right in two,
    and it took some time but I’m feelin’ like I’m finally ready to find, find somebody new

    I wanna kiss a girl
    I wanna hold her tight
    Maybe make a little magic in the moonlight
    Don’t wanna go too far just to take it slow
    But I shouldn’t be lonely in this big old world
    I wanna kiss a girl

    It’s that moment when you start closin’ in
    First you’re holding back, then surrenderin’
    It can start a fire, light up the sky, such a simple thing.
    Do you wanna try?
    Are you ready to say good-bye to all these blues?

    I wanna kiss a girl
    I wanna hold her tight
    Maybe make a little magic in the moonlight
    Don’t wanna go too far just to take it slow
    But I shouldn’t be lonely in this big old world
    I wanna kiss a girl

    ‘Cause maybe tonight it could turn into the rest of our lives, oh yeah.
    Are you ready? Are you ready..to cross that line, put your lips on mine??

    (Put your lips on mine baby)

    Do you wanna try?
    Are you ready to say good-bye to all these blues?

    I wanna kiss a girl
    I wanna hold her tight
    Maybe make a little magic baby
    Don’t wanna go too far just to take it slow
    But no one should be lonely, I shouldn’t be lonely

    [Repeat chorus]

  2. If Ever I Could Love

    I used to cry in the middle of the night
    Baby hold me tight
    There was nobody beside me when I opened my eyes
    Now I’ve turned the color of those days and nights
    Now somethings inside me changed and I think I might be starting over
    I don’t wanna run
    Oh no, cause you might be the one, baby

    If ever I could love, I think it could be with you
    If ever I thought Id find somebody so true
    I wonder if you feel the same way that I do
    If ever I could love I think it could be with you

    You know I cant read your mind my love but it seems to me
    Your heart and mine tonight are defying gravity
    Somethin’ so familiar its still so unknown
    The closer that I get I swear it feels like coming home
    I ready to be brave
    Oh yeah, When you look at me and say

    If ever I could love, I think it could be with you
    If ever I thought Id find somebody so true
    I wonder if you feel the same way that I do
    If ever I could love I think it could be with you

    If ever I could love, baby
    If ever I could love
    If ever I could love

    If ever I could love, I think it could be with you
    If ever I thought Id find somebody so true
    I wonder if you feel the same way that I do
    If ever I could love I think it could be with you

    I still never forget when the baby came and she walked out of my life
    And got hurt so bad
    I swore Id never let another get inside this heart of mine
    But she touched my hand and everything plan I had disappeared like a falling star
    Now theres a new beginning and Im moving to the rhythm of a new and braver heart
    A braver heart
    If ever I could love, oh oh
    If ever I could love, yea yea

  3. Sweet Thing

    When I picked you up for our first date baby
    Well, your pretty blue eyes, they were drivin’ me crazy
    And the tiny little thought that was so amazing
    Is they were lookin at me.

    I held open the car door for you then you climbed
    Inside and slid on over
    To the other side.. I thought my, oh my..

    Sweet thing
    The moon is high and the night is young
    Come on and meet me
    In the backyard under the cottonwood tree
    It’s a good thing and I’m wishin
    C’mon sweet thing
    Won’t you climb on out of your window
    While the world is sleepin
    Cause you know I need you
    And there’s no way I’ll be leavin
    Til we’re kissing on the porch swing
    Oh my little sweet thing

    Yeah I know I’m gonna see you first thing tomorrow
    But I just couldn’t wait so I had to borrow
    Uncle jake’s mustang, its his favorite car
    And so I can’t stay long..

    Standin here feeling like a love struck romeo
    All I wanna do is hold you close and steal a little
    More time, is that such a crime?

    Sweet thing
    The moon is high and the night is young
    Come on and meet me
    In the backyard under the cottonwood tree
    It’s a good thing and I’m wishin
    C’mon sweet thing
    Won’t you climb on out of your window
    While the world is sleepin
    Cause you know I need you
    And there’s no way I’ll be leavin
    Til we’re kissing on the porch swing
    Oh my little sweet thing

    Sweet thing, sweet thing..

    Oh my sweet thing
    The moon is high and the night is young
    Come on and meet me
    In the backyard under the cottonwood tree
    It’s a good thing and tell me I’m not dreamin
    C’mon sweet thing
    Won’t you climb on out of your window
    While the world is sleepin
    Cause you know I need you

  4. Til Summer Comes Around

    Another long summer’s come and gone
    I don’t know why it always ends this way
    The boardwalk’s quiet and the carnival rides
    Are as empty as my broken heart tonight

    But I close my eyes and one more time
    We’re spinning around and you’re holding on tightly
    The words came out, I kissed your mouth
    No Fourth of July has ever burned so brightly
    You had to go, I understand
    But you promised you’d be back again
    And so I wander ’round this town
    ’til summer comes around

    I got a job working at the old park pier
    And every summer now for five long years
    I grease the gears, fix the lights, tighten bolts, straighten the tracks
    And I count the days ’til you just might come back

    But then I close my eyes and one more time,
    We’re spinning around and you’re holdin’ on tightly
    The words came out, I kissed your mouth,
    No Fourth of July has ever burned so brightly
    You had to go, I understand
    But you swore that you’d be back again
    And so I’m frozen in this town
    ’til summer comes around

    Oh and I close my eyes and you and I
    Are stuck on a ferris wheel rockin with the motion
    Hand in hand we cried and laughed
    Knowing that love belonged to us girl, if only for a moment
    And “Baby I’ll be back again” you whispered in my ear
    Bot now the winter wind is the only sound
    And everything is closing down
    ’til summer comes around

  5. My Heart is Open

    I thought I was doing all right being alone
    I swore I’d never let somebody get close again
    I was never gonna let my guard down Not for anyone
    But there’s a light in your eyes and it’s got me moving’ in
    And tonight these walls are all coming down

    And my heart is open
    I’m letting you in
    Cause you give me a reason and the faith I’ve been needing to start again
    And your love is healing
    I’m finally breathing
    I’ve been waiting so long hoping for this moment
    My heart is open

    These days it seems like everybody’s just walking away
    Like there’s no forever and love is just a game
    But don’t you know you can believe me when I say that I’m your man

    My heart is open
    I’m letting you in baby
    Cause you give me a reason and the faith I’ve been needing to start again
    And your love is healing
    I’m finally breathing
    I’ve been waiting so long hoping for this moment
    My heart is open

    I can’t wait anymore, no no
    Because I’ve got nothing left to prove
    And I’ve got so much left to use
    That’s why I’m tearing out the walls and baby I’m kicking down the doors

    And your love is healing
    Baby, I’m finally breathing
    I can hear you calling, I’m ready to fall in love again
    My heart is open

    My heart is open

    My heart is open

  6. Hit the Ground Runnin’

    Well if you ever said goodbye
    I wouldn’t waste all of my time cryin’
    I wouldn’t sit home alone wondering where I went wrong
    I’d be rockin’ on out of here
    Baby, faster than a rolling tear
    Ain’t no grass gonna grow under me when you’re gone
    No, I won’t stay down for long

    I’d hit the ground
    I’d hit the ground runnin’
    I know exactly what I’d do, honey
    I’d hit the ground
    I’d hit the ground runnin’
    I’d hit the ground runnin’ after you

    Yeah Woo

    I’m gonna stop in …
    For a couple things I gotta pick up
    Like some pretty red flowers and a store bought card
    That say what I really feel
    That I need ya’ and I always will
    And the three little words that used to come hard
    Then I jump in back in my car and then

    I’d hit the ground
    I’d hit the ground runnin’
    I know exactly what I’d do
    I’d hit the ground
    I’d hit the ground runnin’
    I’d hit the ground runnin’ after you
    There ain’t no doubt, I ain’t that proud
    There ain’t no doubt about what I’d do
    I’d hit the ground
    Hit the ground
    Hit the ground runnin’ after you, yes, I would, woo

    So if you gotta go baby, I won’t stop you
    And I won’t sit around and miss you, no , no , no
    ‘Cuz if you leave I’m – a – comin’ with you
    Comin’ with you, baby

    I’d hit the ground
    I’d hit the ground runnin’
    I know exactly what I’d do, sugar
    I’d hit the ground
    I’d hit the ground runnin’
    I’d hit the ground runnin’ after you
    There ain’t no doubt, I ain’t that proud
    There ain’t no doubt about what I’d do
    I’d hit the ground

  7. Only You Can Love Me This Way

    Well I know there’s a reason
    And I know there’s a rhyme
    We were meant to be together
    That’s why …
    We can roll with the punches
    We can stroll hand in hand
    And when I say it’s forever
    You understand …

    That you’re always in my heart,
    You’re always on my mind
    But when it all becomes too much,
    You’re never far behind
    And there’s no one that comes close to you
    Could ever take your place
    Cause only you can love me this way

    I could have turned a different corner
    I could have gone another place
    Then I’d of never had this feeling
    That I feel today, yeah..

    And you’re always in my heart,
    Always on my mind
    When it all becomes too much,
    You’re never far behind
    And there’s no one that comes close to you
    Could ever take your place
    Cause only you can love me this way

    Ooooh…

    And you’re always in my heart,
    You’re always on my mind
    And when it all becomes too much,
    you’re never far behind
    And there’s no one that comes close to you
    Could ever take your place
    Cause only you can love me this way

    Ooooh…

    Only you can love me this way.

  8. Standing Right in Front of You

    Out on the street corner
    Just like every morning I sit here
    And I watch you walk my way
    And even though I don’t know you
    As you get closer I swear I feel
    My heart start racing, aching
    Maybe it’s in my mind
    And maybe I’m only dreaming
    And I swear you catch my eye
    As you walk on by
    Oh why you gotta leave me so blue

    Baby why can’t you see
    That I’m the only one for you
    You could search the world over
    But you’ll never find another so true
    Cause if you’re looking for love
    I’m standing right in front of you

    I bet your heart, like mine
    Has been broken by someone
    We never should have given it to (oh no)
    So we put up a wall to keep from falling so hard
    It’s so sad
    Cause there’s such good love inside
    And I’ve been hoping that I might find
    Someone who feels the same way
    Someone to share my life
    On this beautiful ride together
    We could see it all through

    Baby why can’t you see
    That I’m the only one for you
    You could search the world over
    But you’ll never find another so true
    Cause if you’re looking for love
    I’m standing right in front of you

    So this morning I’m just going to walk up and say hello to you
    Cause if given a choice between love and being alone
    I know which one
    I know which one I choose
    And give me a chance
    I’d be a better man for you (I believe I would)
    And open your heart girl
    Let me make your dreams come true

    You can search the world over
    But I can take it to the moon
    Cause if you’re looking for love
    I’m standing right in front of you (yes I am)
    Standing right in front of you
    Open your eyes, I’m standing right in front of you
    Just give me a chance baby
    I’m standing right in front of you

  9. Why’s It Feel So Long

    I just kissed you goodbye a half an hour ago
    I know you’ve driven to the airport
    But I just gotta pick up the phone
    And hear you one more time
    Saying my name
    I must be going outta my mind

    Why’s it feel so long
    Since you’ve been gone
    Why’s it feel so long

    Time keeps dragging on
    Til you get back home
    Why’s it feel so long
    Baby now

    Cause I miss you babe

    I’ve never loved anyone like I love you
    So when you’re not around
    I must confess I lose myself
    And I don’t know who or where I am
    I might be crazy
    Crazy about being your man

    Why’s it feel so long
    Since you’ve been gone
    Why’s it feel so long
    I don’t know why
    Time keeps dragging on
    Til you get back home
    Why’s it feel so long

    When I finally see you
    I know it’d be like never left alone
    But there’s no cantillation
    Tonight isn’t waiting
    Praying maybe you’ll come
    Coming coming babe

    Tell me now

    Why’s it feel so long
    Since you’ve been gone
    Why’s it feel so long
    I don’t know why
    Time keeps dragging on
    Til you get back home
    Why’s it feel so long

    Why’s it feel so long
    Since you’ve been gone
    Why’s it feel so long
    I don’t know why
    Time just crawls along
    ’til you get back home
    Why’s it feel so long

    I look in my watch
    Stare at the clock
    They don’t move
    I don’t either, I’m just frozen on the couch
    Oh the seconds feel like hours
    Hour is like a day
    It’s twilight zone in this home
    When you go away

    At least don’t go away

  10. I’m In

    Love doesn’t come with a contract
    You give me this I gave you that
    It’s scary business
    Your heart and soul is on the line
    Baby why else would I be standing round here so tongue-tied

    If I knew what I was doing I’d be doing it right now
    I would be the best damn poet
    silver words out of my mouth
    Well my words might not be magic
    But they cut straight to the truth
    So if you need a lover and a friend
    Baby I’m in … I’m in

    Baby come on in the water’s fine
    I’ll be right here you take your time
    Just let me hold you and we’ll both take that leap of faith
    It’s like I told you there’s no guarantees when you feel this way

    If I knew what I was doing I’d be doing it right now
    I would be the best damn poet
    silver words out of my mouth
    Well my words might not be magic
    But they cut straight to the truth
    So if you need a lover and a friend
    Baby I’m in I’m in baby I’m in I’m in

    Baby come here next to me I’ll show you how good it can be
    I’ll breathe each breath you breathe I can pour out everything I am

    If I knew what I was doing I’d be doing it right now
    I would be the best damn poet silver words out of my mouth
    Well my words might not be magic
    But they cut straight to the truth
    Now if you need a lover and a friend
    Now if you need a lover and a friend
    Baby I’m in I’m in baby I’m in I’m in

  11. Thank You

    There were nights where I was sure
    I wouldn’t see the morning sun
    And there were days that seemed so dark
    I couldn’t wait for night to come
    I couldn’t stand to think about how
    My life used to be
    And how without a single warning
    It all slipped away from me
    Like a fool I thought I could fight
    The shadows on my own
    To the dark I was no stranger
    But this was stronger than I’d known
    And by the time I knew that I was too deep I’d gone too far
    And the light that used to guide me
    Had faded from my heart
    And I found myself in places I thought I’d never go
    Surrounded by stangers I was so far away from home
    And I don’t know how you found me
    All I know is I owe you everything
    Yes I do

    [Chorus]
    And I thank you for my heart
    I thank you for my life
    And I thank god for grace and mercy
    And that you became my wife
    I’m seeing for the first time
    The stars, the sun and moon
    But they’ve got nothing on the power
    Of this love I have for you
    And I thank you, thank you

    Now people say they’ll stand beside you
    They swear they’ll never leave
    But when the rain started falling
    You know it only fell on me
    When all I felt was so much pain and guilt and shame
    I couldn’t even ask for help
    I don’t know if I believe in other lives
    But when you came
    There was something so familiar
    About the way you said my name
    And the whole world started turning
    And I swear that I’d been born againbrand new
    And it’s all because of you

    [Chorus]

    And I’ve seen so many things
    That I just can’t explain
    But the miracle of miracles is how
    With your love I was saved

    [Chorus]

    And I thank you for my heart
    I thank you for my life
    I thank god for grace and mercy
    And that you became my wife
    The day I started breathing
    Was the day you took my hand
    And ’til the day I die
    Baby
    I’ll forever be your man
    And I thank you, I thank you
