NO REGRETS

 

I know youíre leaving, itís too long overdue

For far too long I've had nothing new to show to you

Goodbye, dry eyes

I watched your plane fade off west of the moon

And it felt so strange to walk away alone

 

Thereís no regrets, no tears goodbye

I don't want you back, we'd only cry again

Say goodbye again

 

The hours that were yours echo like empty rooms

The thoughts we used to share I now keep alone

I woke last night and spoke to you

Not thinking you were gone

And it felt so strange to lie awake alone

 

Thereís no regrets, no tears goodbye

I don't want you back, we'd only cry again

Say goodbye again

 

Our friends are trying to turn my nights to day

Strange faces, a new place, can't keep the ghosts away

Now just beyond the darkest hour

And just behind the dawn

It still feels so strange to lead my life alone

 

Thereís no regrets, no tears goodbye

I don't want you back, we'd only cry again

Say goodbye again

 

Thereís no regrets, no tears goodbye

I don't want you back, we'd only cry again

Say goodbye again

 

 

HOLD AN OLD FRIEND'S HAND

 

Another year and I'm still here

Grass just will not grow on this old hill

I just can't let it go

I don't believe it's cause I'm cold

Or partial to the crazy life I'm caught in

 

Sometimes I feel the hand of time

Is moving like its body was broke

Still I miss your sighs

In the tender words you spoke

 

Hey, that's okay

Come on around

Get yourself together

Come on around

Hold an old friend's hand

 

Babe, I promise not to throw you

You don't have to stay

I just want to hold you

Come on around

And hold an old friend's hand

 

Another year is dead and gone

The sun don't want to shine on this old hill

Or anything that's mine

I won't believe it hurts to grow

Even when the crop we sow is a failure

 

Sometimes I wish I had no pride

Could go off and sell my soul

But how do you say goodbye

To the only truth you know

 

Hey, that's okay

Come on around

Get yourself together

Come on around

And hold an old friend's hand

 

Hold an old friend's hand

 

BOULDER TO BIRMINGHAM   

 

I don't want to hear a love song

I got on this airplane just to fly

I know there's life below me

But all that you can show me

Is a prairie in the sky

 

And I don't want to hear a sad story

Full of heartbreak and desire

The last time I felt like this

I was in the wilderness

And the canyon was on fire

And I stood on the mountain

In the night, and I watched it burn

I watched it burn

And I watched it burn

 

I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham

I would hold my life in his saving grace

I would walk on all the way

From Boulder to Birmingham

If I thought I could see

I could see your face

 

Well you really got me this time

And the hardest part is knowing I'll survive

I've come to listen for the sound

Of the trucks as they move down, out on 95

And pretend that it's the ocean

Coming down to wash me clean

To wash me clean

Baby you know what I mean

 

I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham

I would hold my life in his saving grace

I would walk on all the way

From Boulder to Birmingham

If I thought I could see

I could see your face

 

If I thought I could see

I could see your face

 

 

WALKIN' IN THE SUN

 

Things have been going wrong

Long enough to know

Everything is right

Been walkin' in the dark

Long enough to know

I've finally seen the light

I've been losing

Long enough to know

When I've finally won

And even a blind man can tell

When he's walkin' in the sun

 

I've cried enough tears to know

This feeling called a smile

I've been bottom row

Long enough to know

I'm doing it in style

I've been run hard

Long enough to know

There's no more need to run

And even a blind man can tell

When he's walkin' in the sun

 

Wind is at my back

And I'm sailin' on a ship that's overdue

Cause I've blown so many chances

I ain't gonna blow this one with you

I've seen enough bad times to know

Good times have begun

And even a blind man can tell

When he's walkin' in the sun

 

Even a blind man can tell

When he's walkin' in the sun

 

 

LOVER'S LULLABY

 

Lay down now in slumber

Mama's child is torn asunder

All the fields have gone grey

All the leaves have gone brown

 

Let me tell you a story

Lay down, I know you're weary

While the stars in the sky

While the moon's on the rise

 

Lay down and don't you wake till morning

Close your eyes and helpless through the night

Lay down and dream of love and glory

This is a lover's lullaby

 

Once was a magician

Fair he was, and handsome

And he brought to the table

All the fool's gold and wine

 

Well he promised us three favours

Said he was a saviour

So we drank all his glory

And we borrowed all his time

 

Lay down and don't you wake till morning

Close your eyes and helpless through the night

Lay down and dream of love and glory

This is a lover's lullaby

 

This is a lover's lullaby

 

 

I'VE GOT TO HAVE YOU

 

You came smiling softly, shining moonbeam

Easy as a dreamer, into my world

And before I realised the danger

I found myself staring into your eyes

Somewhere in their colours

I saw promises of things I've never seen before

It's all over, I've got to have you

 

Holding on to talk and saying nothing

Knowing in a moment I could lose you

Then without a warning I remember

That you trembled at the touch of my hand

Knowing when you came to me

That no one else would ever feel the same in my arms

It's all over, I've got to have you

 

Waking in the morning with the tenderness

Of holding you asleep in my arms

Dreaming while your hair was blowing

Softer than a whisper on my cheek

I don't know the feeling so I don't know if it's love

But it's enough, it's enough

It's all over, I've got to have you

And I can't help it, I've got to have you

 

HE'LL BREAK YOUR HEART   

 

(Did you hear that Scott?

I said, 'flattery will get you anywhere')

 

He don't love you like I love you

If he did, he wouldn't break your heart

He don't love you like I love you

He's trying to tear us apart

 

Fare thee well, I know you're leaving

For the new love that you've found

That handsome guy you've been dating

I've got a feeling he's gonna put you down

 

He don't love you like I love you

If he did, he wouldn't break your heart

He don't love you like I love you

He's trying to tear us apart

 

He uses all the great quotations

He says the things I wish I could say

But he's had so many rehearsals

Girl, to him it's just another play

 

And when the final act is over

And you're left standing all alone

When he takes his bow and makes his exit

Oh darling, I'll be there to take you home

 

He don't love you like I love you

If he did, he wouldn't break your heart

He don't love you like I love you

He's trying to tear us apart

 

He don't love you

And he never will

Like I love you

If he did, he wouldn't break your heart

He don't love you like I love you

He's trying to tear us apart

 

 

EVERYTHING THAT TOUCHES YOU

 

You say you're all alone, with visions of your own

The things you feel, nobody feels the same

But you know me, you know what I've been through

And everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Touches you

 

Friends along the road, they lighten up your load

By saying what they think you really want to hear

But I'll only tell you what I feel is true

And everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Touches you

 

Share, cause I can't take you there

Unless I know a part of what you're thinking

Care, cause it's only fair

Darling, can't you feel my heart is breaking

My heart is breaking

 

Everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Touches you

 

Everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Everything that touches me

Touches you

 

 

LOVERS

 

Once they were lovers, now they're not friends

She's found another, he says it's the end

To think they once tore down a wall for a door

Now they don't speak anymore

 

So he walks the streets, the few nights he can stand

Drinking her memory away, when he can

Friends once would reach out to them from the shore

Now they don't try anymore

 

How does it all come to happen

That's not what loving is for

And if I thought it was

I would leave here in the morning

I'd sooner sleep on the floor

 

Oh when will they learn, really

What loving is, it's not what you take in return

But what you give

To think they once tore down a wall for a door

Now they don't speak anymore

 

BURN OUR BRIDGES   

 

I can tell by the look in your eyes

You've been hurt, well so have I

Leave behind the memories

Concentrate on just you and me

Put aside the hurt and pain

We'll make sure it doesn't happen again

 

We'll burn our bridges behind us

Burn 'em right down to the ground

Burn our bridges behind us

And love's gonna keep us safe and sound

 

Come to me, and when you do

Open arms are waiting for you

Both of us have paid our dues

But this time we got something new

We got a love that can light the way

Better forget about yesterday

 

We'll burn our bridges behind us

Burn 'em right down to the ground

Burn our bridges behind us

Love's gonna keep us safe and sound

 

We'll burn our bridges behind us

Burn 'em right down to the ground

Burn our bridges behind us

Love's gonna keep us safe and sound

 

Burn our bridges behind us

Burn 'em right down to the ground

Burn our bridges behind us

Love's gonna keep us safe and sound

 

Burn our bridges behind us

Burn 'em right down to the ground

Burn our bridges behind us

Love's gonna keep us safe and sound

 

Burn our bridges behind us

Burn 'em right down to the ground

Burn our bridges behind us

Love's gonna keep us safe and sound

Burn our bridges behind us

 

REMEMBER ME   

 

Remember me, I'm the one who lived outside your door

Remember me, I'm the one that needed so much more

I cried every night for something of you

I died every time and nothing came through

All for you

 

Remember me, I'm the one who held on when you'd gone

Remember me, I picked up the pieces that you'd torn

I lived everything in my life for you

You lived every one but that wouldn't do

Do for you

 

Remember me, in the way you want me to remember you

You know I'm going to remember you in a way you can't believe

Remember me

 

Remember me, the fool who stopped that chance you had to cross

Remember me, who traded life for you

Lord, it seems I lost

 

You try everything and throw it away

I'll try you again if you want to stay

All my way

 

Remember me, cause I'll remember you

You remember me, cause I'll remember you

And you'll remember me

 

 

LOVING ARMS

 

If you could see me now

The one who said he'd rather be alone

The one who said that he would rather roam

If you could only see me now

 

If I could hold you now

Just for a moment, if I could make you mine

Just for a moment, turn back the hands of time

If I could only hold you now

 

I've been too long in the wind

Too long in the rain

Taking any comfort that I can

Looking back and longing for

The freedom of my chains

Living in your loving arms

Living in your loving arms again

 

If you could hear me now

Singing softly in the summer night

Longing for the arms that held me tight

If you could only hear me now

 

I've been too long in the wind

And too long in the rain

Taking any comfort that I can

Looking back and longing for

The freedom of my chains

Living in your loving arms

Living in your loving arms again

Living in your loving arms again

 

 

I NEVER DREAMED YOU'D LEAVE IN SUMMER

 

I never dreamed you'd leave in summer

I thought you would go, then come back home

No, I never dreamed you'd leave in summer

And now my quiet nights are spent alone

 

You said you would be the warmth in springtime

That is when you started to be cold

No, I never dreamed you'd leave in summer

And now I find myself so all alone

 

You said you would be the warmth in autumn

Said you'd be the one to show the way

No, I never dreamed you'd leave in summer

And now I find my love has gone away

Why didn't you stay

 

 

THE MOON'S A HARSH MISTRESS

 

See her how she flies

Golden sails across the skies

She's close enough to touch

But careful if you try

Though she looks as warm as gold

The moon's a harsh mistress

The moon can be so cold

 

Once the sun did shine

And Lord it felt so fine

The moon, a phantom moon

Through the mountains and the pines

And then the darkness fell

The moon's a harsh mistress

 

I fell out of her eyes

I fell out of her heart

I fell down on my face

I tripped and missed my star

Fell and fell alone

The moon's a harsh mistress

The sky is made of stone

The moon's a harsh mistress

She's hard to call your own

 

 

MARIE

 

You looked like a princess the night we met

With your hair piled up high, I will never forget

I'm drunk right now baby, but I've got to be

Or never could tell you what you mean to me

I loved you the first time I saw you

Always will love you, Marie

I loved you the first time I saw you

Always will love you, Marie

 

The song the trees sing when the wind blows

Your flower, your river, your rainbow

Sometimes I'm crazy, but I guess you know

I'm weak and I'm lazy, and I hurt you so

I don't listen to a word you say

When you're in trouble I turn away

But I love you

And I loved you the first time I saw you

Always will love you, Marie

I loved you the first time I saw you

Always will love you, Marie

 

LINES   

 

Bus line down the centre line took me from the dotted lines that bore my name

Rolling 'cross the border lines looking for a peace of mind that never came

And now, at last Iím free, but there's nobody here

But me to fill my bed, I wish that I had read between the lines

 

Bread lines and the cheap wines, they're the only life lines that I have left

No more debts to pay back cause I can't find a way back to save myself

And now, at last Iím free, but there's nobody here but me

Lord, I'm strung out, soaking wet and hung out on the lines

 

And now at last Iím free, but there's nobody here

But me to fill my bed, I wish that I had read between the lines

 

 

TAKING IT ALL IN STRIDE

 

Rainy days, rainy nights

Seems like it's been raining for a while

Wind is blowing, ground is frozen

I haven't seen a single soul smile

 

Empty halls, cat calls

And Lord this is a lonely time of year

Well I've lost you, but I'm not through

And you won't see me shed a single tear

 

I will be taking it all in stride

Ain't gonna run, ain't gonna hide

I've got too much to give inside

To give up on loving

 

I will go up and I will go down

But somehow I'll always be around

There's too much out there to be found

To give up on loving

 

Not long ago you let me know

I was all that mattered in your life

We drank a toast, you said you loved me the most

I wondered will this really be right

 

But times change and love is strange

And nothing ever really lasts for long

Oh I lost you, but I'm not through

I know it's always dark before the dawn

 

I will be taking it all in stride

Ain't gonna run, ain't gonna hide

I've got too much to give inside

To give up on loving

 

I will go up and I will go down

But somehow I'll always be around

There's too much out there to be found

To give up on loving

 

I will be taking it all in stride

Ain't gonna run, ain't gonna hide

I've got too much to give inside

To give up on loving

 

I will go up and I will go down

But somehow I'll always be around

There's too much out there to be found

To give up on loving

 

 

INSIDE OF YOU

 

I have been lonely

Lost and forgotten

Crying at sundown

Bird in the mountain

 

The beauty of that freedom

Can't match the beauty

Of what I feel

When I'm inside of you

 

I've been a young man

Running at day-break

Hearing my footsteps

The sound that the wind makes

 

Prisoner of my past

Held by dreams that never last

I can only be myself

When I'm inside of you

 

All of the lonely smiles

The broken dreams

The endless miles

 

All of the days and years

The promises

The held back tears

Disappear

 

Always on the outside

Never knowing why

Then you let me in your heart

It felt so good to cry

And I feel like I belong

When I'm inside of you

 

And when I'm long gone

Rolling in darkness

All of my sad songs

Resting in silence

No matter where my soul may be

I will have a memory

Of what it was to be

Inside of you

 

No matter where my soul may be

I will have a memory

Of what it was to be

Inside of you

 

 

HAVE YOU SEEN MY BABY

 

Have you seen my baby on the avenue

You know she drives me crazy with the funny things she do

I've seen her with the milkman, they was walking down the street

I said, "When you're through with my baby, Mr Milkman"

"Send her on home to me"

Hold on, baby, hold on

Hold on, baby, hold on

Oh it's been so long

Since my gal has been gone

So hold on, baby, hold on

 

I've seen her with a gypsy, they was dancing in a wood

You know that girl ain't never been faithful to me, people

Lord, she ain't no good

I said, "Please don't talk to strangers mama", but she always do

She said, "I talk to strangers if I want to cause I'm a stranger too"

Hold on, baby, hold on

Hold on, baby, hold on

Oh it's been so long

Since my gal has been gone

Hold on, baby, hold on

 

I've seen her with a gypsy, they was dancing in a wood

You know that girl, ainít been faithful to me, people

Lord, sheís just no good

I said, "Please don't talk to strangers mama", but she always do

She said, "I talk to strangers if I want to cause I'm a stranger too"

Hold on, baby, hold on

Hold on, baby, hold on

Whoh it's been so long

Since my gal has been gone

So hold on, baby, hold on

Hold on, baby, hold on

So hold on, baby, hold on
