Track Listing

  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. Long Hot Summer

    I can’t sleep
    Ain’t no sleep a’coming
    I’m just lying here thinking ‘bout you
    I’m in deep
    Falling deep into the picture in my mind of everything we’re gonna do

    Over at the lake and down by the river
    You can feel it start to rise
    Wanna jump in my car, go wherever you are
    ‘Cause I need you by my side

    It’s gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
    With your feet up on the dashboard now
    Singing along with the radio, it’s such a beautiful sound
    And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars come out
    When you hold my hand in the back of my mind, just waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

    I wanna see your brown skin shimmer in the sun for the first time
    I try to be the one who knows just what to do to you to get me that smile
    One chance of meeting, you were walking by me on the street and I said hi
    And that was the beginning of my heart spinnin’ like these wheels in my head tonight

    It’s gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
    With your feet up on the dashboard now
    Singing along with the radio, it’s such a beautiful sound
    And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars come out
    When you hold my hand in the back of my mind, just waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

    The only place that I wanna be is where you are
    ‘Cause anymore than a heartbeat away is just too far

    It’s gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
    All I really want is more than this moment right now
    And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars come out
    And when you hold my hand and I look into your eyes
    I swear it looks like you’re waiting for the sun to go down, the sun to go down

    I swear it’s like you’re waiting for the sun to go down
    Waiting on the sun to go down
    Hey, yeah
    Oh, I’m loving thinking ‘bout you
    I cant sleep, I’m just lying here thinkin’ ‘bout you

  3. Somebody Like You (Radio remix)

    There’s a new wind blowin’ like I’ve never known
    I’m breathin’ deeper than I’ve ever done
    And it sure feels good, to finally feel the way I do

    Now, I wanna love somebody
    Love somebody like you

    An’ I’m lettin’ go of all my lonely yesterdays
    I’ve forgiven myself for the mistakes I’ve made
    Now there’s just one thing, the only thing I wanna do, mmm, mmm

    I wanna love somebody
    Love somebody like you

    Yeah, I wanna feel the sunshine
    Shinin’ down on me and you
    When you put your arms around me
    You let me know there’s nothing in this world I can’t do

    I used to run in circles goin’ no-where fast
    I’d take, uh, one step forward and two steps back
    Couldn’t walk a straight line even if I wanted to, mmm, mmm

    I wanna love somebody
    Love somebody like you
    [- From :http://www.elyrics.net/read/k/keith-urban-lyrics/somebody-like-you-lyrics.html -]
    Whoa here we go now

    Yeah, I wanna feel the sunshine
    Shinin’ down on me and you
    When you put your arms around me
    Well, baby there ain’t nothing in this world I can’t do

    Sometimes it’s hard for me to understand
    But you’re teachin’ me to be a better man
    I don’t want to take this life for granted like I used to do, no, no

    I wanna love somebody
    Love somebody like you
    I’m ready to love somebody
    Love somebody like you, ooh

    An’ I wanna love somebody
    Love somebody like you, yeah

    Oh yeah oh, I wanna be the man in the middle of the night
    Shinin’ like it’s true
    I wanna be the man that you run to whenever I call on you
    When everything that loved someone finally found it’s way
    Wanna be a better man, I see it in you, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, you wanna believe it

  4. Making Memories of Us (Radio single edit)

    I’m gonna be here for you baby
    I’ll be a man of my word
    Speak the language in a voice that you have never heard
    I wanna sleep with you forever
    And I wanna die in your arms
    In a cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm

    And I’m gonna love you like nobody loves you
    And I’ll earn your trust making memories of us

    I wanna honor your mother
    I wanna learn from your pa
    I wanna steal your attention like a bad outlaw
    I wanna stand out in a crowd for you
    A man among men
    I wanna make your world better than it’s ever been

    And I’m gonna love you like nobody loves you
    And I’ll earn your trust making memories of us

    We’ll follow the rainbow
    Wherever the four winds blow
    And there’ll be a new day
    Comin’ your way

    I’m gonna be here for you from now on
    This you know somehow
    You’ve been stretched to the limits but it’s alright now
    And I’m gonna make you a promise
    If there’s life after this
    I’m gonna be there to meet you with a warm, wet kiss

    And I’m gonna love you like nobody loves you
    And I’ll earn your trust making memories of us
    I’m gonna love you like nobody loves you
    And I’ll win your trust making memories of us

  5. Days Go By

    I’m changing lanes
    I’m talking on the phone
    I’m drivin’ way to fast
    And the interstate’s jammed with
    Gunners like me afraid of coming in last
    But somewhere in the race we run
    We’re coming undone

    Days go by
    I can feel ‘em flying
    Like a hand out the window in the wind as the cars go by
    It’s all we’ve been given
    So you better start livin’ right now
    ‘Cause days go by

    Out on the roof just the other night
    I watched the world flash by
    Headlights, taillights running through a river of neon signs
    But somewhere in the rush I felt
    We’re losing ourselves

    Days go by
    I can feel ‘em flying
    Like a hand out the window in the wind as the cars go by
    It’s all we’ve been given
    So you better start livin’ right now
    ‘Cause days go by

    We think about tomorrow then it slips away
    We talk about forever but we’ve only got today

    And the days go by
    I can feel ‘em flying
    Like a hand out the window
    As the cars go by

    It’s all we’ve been given
    So you better start livin’
    You better start livin’
    Better start livin’ right now

    Cause days go by
    I can feel like ‘em flying
    Like a hand out the window in the wind as the cars go by

    It’s all we’ve been given
    So you better start livin’ right now

    Cause days go by
    These days go by

    So take ‘em by the hand
    They’re yours and mine
    Take ‘em by the hand
    And live your life
    Take ‘em by the hand
    Don’t let ‘em all fly by

    Come on, Come on now
    Don’t you know the days go by

  6. Put You In A Song

    Well here you come again and you’re lookin’ so fine
    You don’t notice me but it’s alright
    I’m just a guy who wishes that I could be your man someday
    Yeah a picture paints a thousand words it’s true
    But it’s still not enough for how I feel about you
    I wanna put you in a melody, I gotta set you to a groove

    I wanna put you in my car and drive
    And turn you up loud, roll down all the windows and shout it out
    I love this girl oh
    If I could press play, repeat how happy I’d be
    Wherever I’d go I’d have you there with me
    You’d be right where you belong
    I wanna put you in a song, oh oh oh
    Well I’d sing about your smile and your pretty blue eyes
    The way your hair shimmers in the sunlight
    It’d be so easy I’d just write it from my heart
    ‘Cause I gotta tell the world what you mean to me
    Wrap you up in a melody so you’ll be
    Stuck in my head all day
    ‘Cause you’re already there anyway, yes you are

    I wanna put you in my car and drive
    And turn you up loud, roll down all the windows and shout it out
    I love this girl
    If I could press play, repeat how happy I’d be
    Wherever I’d go I’d have you there with me
    You’d be right where you belong
    I wanna put you in a song
    And if I get it right everybody will be singing along yeah
    And when they see you on the street they’ll say
    Hey ain’t you the girl in that song

    I wanna put you in my car and drive
    And turn you up loud, roll down all the windows and shout it out
    I’m in love with this girl
    Yeah if I could press play, rewind a couple million times
    Imagine for a moment that you’re all mine
    Every night I’d drive you home
    If I could put you in a
    Let me put you in a song
    Let me put you in a song
    Oh a pretty little song about you baby

  7. Without You

    I loved you since the very first day
    When I caught you looking my way
    I smiled and just knew it
    And up until you came along
    And no one ever heard my song
    Now it’s climbing with a bullet

    It’s nice to have someone so honestly devoted
    But when it’s said and done girl I hope you know that

    The traveling, the singing, it don’t mean nothing without you
    The fast cars, the guitars, they are all just second to
    This life, this love that you and I’ve been dreaming of for so long
    Would all be as good as gone without you

    Oh Without you yea yea

    Along comes a baby girl
    And suddenly my little world
    Just got a whole lot bigger, yes it did
    And people that I barely knew
    They love me cause I’m part of you
    Man it’s tough to figure

    How two souls could be miles from one another
    But still you and me somehow found each other

    The traveling, the singing, it don’t mean nothing without you
    The fast cars, the guitars, they are all just second to
    This life, this love that you and I’ve been dreaming of for so long
    Would all be as good as gone without you

    Without you oh

    Without you I’d survive
    But I’d have to have the notion
    That I could live this life
    Just going through the motions

    The traveling, the singing, it don’t mean nothing without you
    The fast cars, the guitars, they are all just second to
    This life, this love that you and I’ve been building up so high
    It’s never gonna touch the sky without you

    Without you
    Without you baby baby baby without you
    Without you

  8. You Look Good In My Shirt

    When you walked up behind me and covered my eyes
    And whispered in my ear, guess who
    I rattled off names like I really didn’t know
    But all along I knew it was you

    And, the longer we talked, the more we laughed
    And wondered why we didn’t last
    It had been a long time, but later last night
    Baby, we caught up real fast

    And maybe it’s a little too early
    To know if this is gonna work
    All I know is you’re sure looking
    Good in my shirt
    That’s right
    You look good in my shirt

    Well now I’m not saying that we solved overnight
    Every way that we went wrong
    Oh, but what I’m seeing I’d sure love seeing
    Every morning from now on

    And maybe it’s a little too early
    To know if this is gonna work
    All I know is you’re sure looking
    Good in my shirt

    C’mon now
    Aww that’s right
    Oh you look so fine

    And maybe it’s a little too early
    To know if this is gonna work
    All I know is you’re sure looking
    Good in my shirt

    And maybe it’s a little too early
    To know if this is gonna work
    All I know is you’re sure looking
    Good in my shirt
    You look good in my shirt
    You look good in my shirt

  9. Stupid Boy

    Well, she was precious like a flower
    She grew wild, wild but innocent
    A perfect prayer in a desperate hour
    She was everything beautiful and different

    Stupid boy, you can’t fence that in
    Stupid boy, it’s like holding back the wind
    she let her heart and soul right in your hands
    And you stole her every dream and you crushed her plans
    She never even knew she had a choice and that’s what happens
    When the only voice she hears is telling her she can’t
    Stupid boy, stupid boy
    Oh

    So what made you think you could take a life
    And just push it push it around
    I guess to build yourself up so high
    You had to take her and break her down

    she let her heart and soul right in your hands
    And you stole her every dream and you crushed her plans
    She never even knew she had a choice and that’s what happens
    When the only voice she hears is telling her she can’t
    You stupid boy

    Oh, you always had to be right but now you’ve lost
    The only thing that ever made you feel alive
    Yeah, yeah

    Well, she let her heart and soul right in your hands
    And you stole her every dream and you crushed her plans
    Yes, you did
    She never even knew she had a choice and that’s what happens
    When the only voice she hears is telling her she can’t
    You stupid boy, oh, I’m the same old
    Same old stupid boy

    It took awhile for her to figure out she could run
    But when she did, she was long gone
    Long gone, long gone
    Ah, she’s gone

    Nobody’s ever gonna love me like she loved me
    And she loved me, she loved me
    God please, just let her know
    I’m sorry, I’m sorry
    I’m sorry, I’m sorry
    Baby, yeah, I’m down on my knees
    She’s never coming back to me

  10. Once In A Lifetime (Radio edit)

    …Mm hmm

    I can see it in your eyes
    And feel it in your touch
    I know that you’re scared
    But you’ve never been this loved (mm hmm)

    I know it’s true.
    But if anyone can make it,

    And it’s a leap of faith
    But we’re never giving up
    Cuz i know we’ve got a once in a lifetime love

    Everybody’s looking
    For what we’ve found
    Some wait their whole life
    And it never comes around. (uu huhh)

    I close my eyes and i see you standing right there
    Sayin ‘i do’ and they’re throwing the rice in our hair.

  11. 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..

    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

  12. You’ll Think Of Me

    I woke up early this morning around 4am
    With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
    I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
    But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake
    Ever since you found yourself in someone else’s arms
    I’ve been tryin’ my best to get along
    But that’s OK
    There’s nothing left to say, but

    Take your records, take your freedom
    Take your memories, I don’t need’em
    Take your space and take your reasons
    But you’ll think of me
    And take your cap and leave my sweater
    ‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
    In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
    But you’ll think of me, you’ll think of me

    I went out driving trying to clear my head
    I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
    I guess I’m feeling just a little tired of this
    And all the baggage that seems to still exist
    It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
    Is not knowing what we could have been
    What we should have been
    So

    Take your records, take your freedom
    Take your memories, I don’t need’em
    Take your space and take your reasons
    But you’ll think of me
    And take your cap and leave my sweater
    ‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
    In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
    But you’ll think of me

    Someday I’m gonna run across your mind
    Don’t worry, I’ll be fine
    I’m gonna be alright
    While you’re sleeping with your pride
    Wishing I could hold you tight
    I’ll be over you
    And on with my life

    So take your records, take your freedom
    Take your memories, I don’t need’em
    And take your cap and leave my sweater
    ‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
    In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
    But you’ll think of me

    So take your records, take your freedom
    Take your memories, I don’t need’em
    Take your space and all your reasons
    But you’ll think of me
    And take your cap and leave my sweater
    ‘Cause we got nothing left to weather
    In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
    But you’ll think of me, you’ll think of me, yeah

    And you’re gonna think of me
    Oh someday baby, someday

  13. I Told You So (Single edit)

    You said you needed your space
    I wasn’t where you wanted to be
    I didn’t stand in your way
    I only want you to be happy
    And so how surprised am I to see you here tonight

    Well, oh, can’t you see that for worse or for better
    We’re better together
    Please, just come back home
    And don’t say that you’re sorry
    And I won’t say I told you so

    Sometimes in our lives
    We get to where we wonder if
    The long road that we’re on
    Is heading in the same direction
    When it comes to you and me
    We’re right where I know we should be

    Oh, can’t you see that for worse or for better
    We’re better together
    Please, just come back home
    And don’t say that you’re sorry
    And I won’t say I told you so

    Sometimes it’s like we’re deep in nothing but love
    And the slightest thing can grow so foolishly
    Remind me, please

    Oh, can’t you see that for worse or for better
    We’re better together
    Please, just come back home
    And don’t say that you’re sorry
    And I won’t say I told you so
    But I told you so
    Should have known better
    Than to leave me, baby
    Should have known better
    Than to leave me, darling

  14. 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.

  15. You’re My Better Half

    Car door slams, it’s been a long day at work
    I’m out on the freeway and I’m wondering if it’s all worth
    The price that I pay, sometimes it doesn’t seem fair
    I pull into the drive and you’re standing there
    And you look at me
    And give me that come-here-baby smile
    It’s all gonna be alright
    You take my hand
    You pull me close and you hold me tight

    [Chorus:]
    It’s the sweet love that you give to me
    That makes me believe we can make it through anything
    ‘Cause when it all comes down
    And I’m feeling like I’ll never last
    I just lean on you ’cause baby
    You’re my better half

    They say behind every man is a good woman
    But I think that’s a lie
    ‘Cause when it comes to you I’d rather have you by my side
    You don’t know how much I count on you to help me
    When I’ve given everything I got and I just feel like giving in
    And you look at me
    And give me that come-here-baby smile
    It’s all gonna be alright
    You take my hand
    Yeah you pull me close and you hold me tight

    [REPEAT CHORUS]

    Well, you take my hand
    Yeah you pull me close and I understand

    It’s the sweet love that you give to me
    That makes me believe that we can make it through anything

    Oh baby, it’s the sweet love that you give to me
    That makes me believe we can make it through anything
    ‘Cause when it all comes down
    And I’m feeling like I’ll never last
    I just lean on you ’cause baby
    You’re my better half

    Oh, oh baby you’re my better half
    Ooh, hey baby you’re my better half

  16. For You
  17. Better Life

    Friday night and the moon is high
    I’m wide-awake just watchin’ you sleep
    And I promise you you’re gonna have
    More than just the things that you need
    We ain’t got much now, We’re just startin’ out
    But I know somehow paradise is comin’

    [Chorus:]
    Someday baby, You and I are gonna be the ones
    Good luck’s gonna shine
    Someday baby you and I are gonna be the ones
    So hold on
    We’re headed for a better life

    Oh now there’s a place for you and me
    Where we can dream as big as the sky
    I know it’s hard to see it now
    But baby someday we’re gonna fly
    This road we’re on, you know it might be long
    But my faith is strong
    It’s all that really matters

    [REPEAT CHORUS]

    So hold on, hold on
    C’mon baby, hold on

    Yeah, we’re gonna have it all
    And ooh

    [REPEAT CHORUS TWICE]

    Oh, a better life
    Hey we’re gonna leave this all behind us baby, wait and see
    We’re headed for a better life, you and me
    We’re gonna break the chains that bind and, finally we’ll be free
    We’re gonna be the ones that have it all, you and me
    Just hold on tight now baby
