Over Again

Every time that I see
you looking back at me
The tenderness in your smile
You're making it all worthwhile

The silliness of this song
You'll think there's something wrong
But the only thing I want to say
How much you mean to me each day

Over again I'm thinking of what you said
And then over again I fall in love

You'll laugh the whole day long
when you'll hear this stupid song
But I don't care about it
As long as you will stay with me
So I can let you see
How much you mean to me

You probably think I'm crazy
But I'm so glad that you're with me

Over again I'm thinking of what you said
And then over again I fall in love

All the things I wanna do
when I'm so close to you
All the words I wanna say
will come out the wrong way
Believe me I wanna be with you

Every time that I see
you looking back at me
The tenderness in your smile
You're making it all worthwhile

Less Than Nothing

I'll forget the way you touched me
I'll forget the way you looked at me
I'll forget the way you smiled
'Cause that always used to feel so good to me

I wish I could tell you
that if you held my hand again
I would hold it forever
'Cause forever has got no end

I will be less than nothing without you
And I will go on, 'cause I think you want me to

Sometimes the lights are slowly fading around me
Still your flame will keep the fire burning inside of me
You keep my flame burning
You keep my flame burning

I will be less than nothing without you
And I will go on, 'cause I think you want me to

If I see you somewhere
will I recognize you then
'Cause your image has faded
and I don't know if it'll come back again

I will be less than nothing without you
And I will go on, 'cause I think you want me to
I will be less than nothing without you

Could You Be the One

You say I don't care
You know I changed everything for you
You say there is something wrong and I should feel the same way, too
So we disagree, but that's a normal thing in life
We should just go on and leave our differences behind

Could you be the one that shines on me
Could you be the one

Sometimes I would change every single thing that I am
But these are just the thoughts of a lonely, broke and desperate man
'Cause if I really changed every single thing I am
There would be nothing left of the man you love and for whom you cared

Could you be the one that shines on me
Could you be the one

If things were different now
Could it be somehow
That you change your mind and let me stay
Will it go that way, should we go that way

Could you be the one that shines on me
Could you be the one
Could you be the one that shines on me
Could you be the one

1000 Miles

I would walk a thousand miles for you, babe
Until it's my love you take for always
I'll track this world down for you, babe
Until your love will stop my heartache

The light of a candle lights up my beer
The night is alone and I am too
The red-headed girl who's sitting next to me
is waiting for me to make a move

But I'm so tired I just wanna sleep
and be dreaming of you

I would walk a thousand miles for you, babe
Until it's my love you take for always
I'll track this world down for you, babe
Until your love will stop my heartache, my heart aches

I light up a smoke and see girls go by
They won't remind me of you

'Cause I'm so tired I just wanna sleep
and be dreaming of you

I would walk a thousand miles for you, babe
Until it's my love you take for always
I'll track this world down for you, babe
Until your love will stop my heartache, my heart aches

A58

I was just drifting by
With no place to go
Watching the clouds
Far down your road

I've been here before
So many times
I can't handle no more
Any of your lies

A58
Bring me back home
You're taking too long
My patience is gone

A58
Don't take all of my time
I once was your drifter
And you know drifters pass by

I think of your bend
Near the PM Factory
Smoking kills like you do
But man they don't see

I follow your guide
Through meadows and plains
Away from my island
She's fighting the sea

A58
Bring me back home,
You're taking too long
My patience is gone

A58
Don't take all of my time
I once was your drifter
You know drifters pass by

And please don't take
Anymore of our lives
Can't deal with the pain
So keep us alive

First Time

You're getting upset by something he said
But you think of him when you're lying in bed
Is he breaking your heart when he won't show up at your first date
And you don't understand why he never calls back

Did you do something wrong, did you make a mistake
He won't go out of your head
Was it something you said or is it too late

You're falling in love for the first time
You're sure it's ok, 'cause you know it's the last time
You're falling in love for the first time

You see him at school with some other girl
He's laughing with her while you are trying to learn
Is he letting you down, is he making you cry sometimes
Does he not understand that he's hurting you bad

Did you do something wrong, did you make a mistake
He won't go out of your head
Was it something you said or is it too late

You're falling in love for the first time
You're sure it's ok, 'cause you know it's the last time
You're falling in love for the first time

You're falling in love for the first time
You're sure it's ok, 'cause you know it's the last time
You're falling in love for the first time

You're getting upset by something he said
But you think of him when you're lying in bed

You're falling in love for the first time
You're sure it's ok, 'cause you know it's the last time
You're falling in love for the first time

You're falling in love for the first time
You're sure it's ok, 'cause you know it's the last time
You're falling in love for the first time

Come on now, let me take you home now

Ordinary Man

I'm trying to figure out what I have to know
To make your life complete, so you won't let go
Like Barry always sang, you are my everything
My first, my last and even my in-between

I thought I did alright, until you walked into my life

All I know is that I love you so
And I will do my best to get this message through
I just need a little time to get used to this life

Baby, in time, I know I'll find my way again
Maybe in time, I know how I'll learn to understand
And how to let down all my guards
I will do my best but I am not by far the best you'll ever have
I'm just a plain and simple ordinary man
Who thought he did alright, until you walked into his life

So please don't blame me if I should forget sometimes
The things that make me happy or the ones that make me cry
I just need a little time, to get used to this life

Baby, in time, I know I'll find my way again
Maybe in time, I know how I'll learn to understand
And how to let down all my guards
I will do my best but I am not by far the worst you've ever seen
'Cause I'm not jealous, I'm not cruel and I'm not mean

I thought I did alright, until you walked into my life

Baby, in time, I know I'll find my way again
Maybe in time, I know how I'll learn to understand
And how to let down all my guards
I will do my best, 'cause I'll stay where you are

Jack & Me

Why should I live with tenderness
If I can live in loneliness without anyone
I'm just having fun

And every night I stumble home
No girls around, just me alone
I can't find my keys, oh, lonely me

The doors I jammed and I'm too weak
I think I'll sleep outside tonight
I'll never drink again, not in this life

Well, last time that I used that line
I felt like shit, 'cause Jack and wine don't mix so good
That's a week ago

And I'm sure something died in my mouth
It hopped right in and never came out
What a bad pickup line, it's probably mine

'Cause this is my month of Jack and me
This is how I wanna be
This is my month of Jack and me
Pour me another one, merci

My stomach burns and turns once more
I'm tasting what I ate before
Slept on the shower floor, now my back is sore

Why is it when I close my eyes
Everything is spinning and just feels like a carousel
A brand new hell

It's 5pm and something's wrong
The bed I'm in is not my own
And where're my pants? I'd better go home

'Cause this is my month of Jack and me
This is how I wanna be
This is my month of Jack and me
Pour me another one, merci

This is my month of Jack and me
This is how I wanna be
This is my month of Jack and me
Pour me another one, merci

Maybe Tonight, Maybe Tomorrow

A picture of you is waiting for me inside my head
It will only appear if I close my eyes and go to bed
Tomorrow morning it will be gone
But I refuse to wait so long

Morning calls and as I look inside my head
There's nothing left only the pain of some beers I've had
Maybe tonight there is a chance
That I'll get a second glance

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Where you will stay

Chances grow and chances fade inside of me
The harder I try the faster they fade, not one left to see
Maybe someday I'll get it right
But until then I won't give up the fight

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Where you will stay

Just a moment back in time, then
I would take that moment, to hold you once again

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Where you will stay

Steal My Heart Away

I've been had, I was blind, I've been down for a while
You kept treating me kind but you just left me there
You're a liar, you're lying and lying

You know I've been here before when you walked out the door
Pushing me aside, even though you heard me crying, crying and crying

And now you're gonna try it again for a change
You'll hold me real close and you won't let go
You'll squeeze me so tight, just like before

But if you wanna steal my heart away
Are you gonna keep it safe every day

You're just like a crook and a fish on a hook, the bait better be good
Or you're not gonna catch me, keep trying
You'd better keep trying

When you're cracking my safe and you're loading the score
Look good what's inside you won't get anymore
There is no denying, there is no denying

And now you're gonna try it again for a change
You'll hold me real close and you won't let go
You'll squeeze me so tight, just like before

If you wanna steal my heart away
Are you gonna keep it safe every day

If you really are gonna steal it
And if you really mean it
Just put your black suit on and try

If you wanna steal my heart away
Are you gonna keep it safe every day

If you wanna steal my heart away
You know you gotta keep it safe every day

What Life Brings

She was barely hanging on
The love of her family kept her strong
She was trying to survive
Trail of death in her eyes

Two kids, a husband and a dog
A minimum wage is rough enough
They had fun and did alright
They had each other and loved life

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

The somewhere around Christmas
Santa brought his gifts but no one noticed
'Cause the dark days were just right
for the news that had arrive

They found a little know inside her breast
"Never saw a smaller one," is what they said
A day of hospital, then move one
You're young at heart and nothing's wrong

Flowers grew and one year passed
Santa's time was here again
And once again the doctor called
"There's nothing we can do. That's all."

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

And then a perfect day in August
she spread her wings and then took off
They laid her body down to rest
next to her father is where she lies best

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

Living In a Lie

All the lies that you told
All the schemes that you sold
The promise you broke
In fact, you looked like another baby

I would've loved to have spent my life with you
Your heart in mine
But I can't find the strength and the time
to fight your betrayal, baby

You're pushing me further down the line
And I don't think that it's right
Running around in town and telling lies

'Cause I don't think that it's right
You're living for yourself, you're pushing me aside
I'm trying hard to step into the light
Girl, I'm living in a lie

Every time you tell me keep your thoughts to yourself
Well, I'm trying so hard, babe, but I don't think I can make it

Stories go on and on where it began
Where did it go wrong
The end is showing her face

You're pushing me further down the line
And I don't think that it's right
Running around in town and telling lies

'Cause I don't think that it's right
You're living for yourself, you're pushing me aside
I'm trying hard to step into the light
Girl, I'm living in a lie

What else can I do? Pretend I don't love you?
When you make me feel like this
I try to understand that time heals everything
But scars will stay forever

'Cause I don't think that it's right
You're living for yourself, you're pushing me aside
I'm trying hard to step into the light
Girl, I'm living in a lie

La Vie en Rose

I thought that love was just a word
they sang in love songs that I heard
It took your kisses to reveal
that I was wrong and love is real

Hold me close and hold me fast
This magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
la vie en rose
