Drunk Last Night

I got a little drunk last night
There's something 'bout a midnight rain
Staring at the ceiling fan
I couldn't get you off my brain

I guess I wasn't thinking straight
I couldn't tell wrong from right
I went ahead and called you up
I got a little drunk last night

Brought it all up, got it all out
What is it worth, to both of us now
It's off my chest, but never off my mind
Two drinks in, hit that hurt,
You feel bad, and I feel worse
I swear it's the last time every time
Don't know why

Might've been a song on the radio
Might've been nothing, baby I don't know
Might've been a little too tired to fight
Might've been I got a little drunk last night

I got a little too far gone
Heart was talking way too loud
I don't remember what I said
I just remember breaking down

Brought it all up, got it all out
What is it worth, to both of us now
It's off my chest, but never off my mind
Two drinks in, hit that hurt,
You feel bad, and I feel worse
I swear it's the last time every time
Don't know why

Might've been a song on the radio
Might've been nothing, baby I don't know
Might've been a girl who looked like you
Might've been a fluke, might've been a full moon
Might've been a little too tired to fight
Might've been I got a little drunk last night

Might've been a song on the radio
Might've been nothing, baby I don't know
Might've been a girl who looked like you
Might've been a fluke, might've been a full moon
Might've been a little too tired to fight
Might've been I got a little drunk

Brought it all up, got it all out
What is it worth, to both of us now
It's off my chest, but never off my mind
Two drinks in, hit that hurt,
You feel bad, and I feel worse
I swear it's the last time every time

I got a little drunk last night
I got a little drunk last night
Thought I could keep it all inside
But I got a little drunk last night

10,000 Towns

Hell Yeah, Amen
Hallelujah, how ya been
8 point, 8 ball
first base, last call
Chrome grill, mudflap
Party back in the pines

Fight song, tom tom
Friday night, pom pom
Redneck, hip hop
County courthouse clock
Beauty shop turnin off that open sign

Anywhere the crossroads hit
(Anywhere the crossroads hit)
Doesn't matter where it is
I can tell ya this

[Chorus:]
We'll be hittin that Main street hot on a cool night
Sneakin a six pack kiss at a red light
Circlin up out back behind that Texaco
Brushin the blonde hair out of her blue eyes
Countin the stars out under the big sky
Passin the bottle round just to see how far it goes
Some folks swear we ain't got one prayer left inside
But I know everything's gonna be alright
As long as this is goin on in 10,000 towns tonight

Steeples, dive bars
Air and water no charge
Everybody knows who's goin to the graveyard
Pulls over as they're passin by
Yeah that circle's gonna be unbroken in the by and by
Later on tonight

[Chorus:]
We'll be hittin that Main street hot on a cool night
Sneakin a six pack kiss at a red light
Circlin up out back behind that Texaco
Brushin the blonde hair out of her blue eyes
Countin the stars out under the big sky
Passin the bottle round just to see how far it goes
Some folks swear we ain't got one prayer left inside
But I know everything's gonna be alright
As long as this is goin on in 10,000 towns tonight
10,000 towns tonight

[Chorus:]
We'll be hittin that Main street hot on a cool night
Sneakin a six pack kiss at a red light
Circlin up out back behind that Texaco
Brushin the blonde hair out of her blue eyes
Countin the stars out under the big sky
Passin the bottle round just to see how far it goes
Some folks swear we ain't got one prayer left inside
But I know everything's gonna be alright
As long as this is goin on in 10,000 towns tonight
10,000 towns tonight [x2]

Dust

She's sick of this town, she's sick of that boy
Yeah she's sick of dreams that never take flight
There's gotta be more than the same old story
So she's gonna turn the page tonight
And turn the radio up (turn the radio up)
Roll the windows down
She got a full tank of gas (she got a full tank of gas)
Ain't no stopping her now

She's got the pedal to the floor in a hand-me-down Ford,
Yeah, the only thing that's left to do
Is catch a couple green lights and those baby blue eyes
Are leaving nothing in that rearview
But dust, nothing but dust

She's fighting back tears, she's fighting back years
Of the only life she's ever known
There's a future that's bright in the dead of this night,
And all she's gotta do is go
And turn the radio up (turn the radio up)
Roll the windows down
She got an open road (she got an open road)
Ain't no stopping her now

She's got the pedal to the floor in a hand-me-down Ford,
Yeah, the only thing that's left to do
Is catch a couple green lights and those baby blue eyes
Are leaving nothing in that rearview
But dust, nothing but dust
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)

She got the radio up,
She got the windows down,
No she won't look back
Ain't no stopping her,
Ain't no stopping her now...

She's got the pedal to the floor in a hand-me-down Ford,
Yeah, the only thing that's left to do
Is catch a couple green lights and those baby blue eyes
Are leaving nothing in that rearview
But dust, nothing but dust
Dust, nothing but dust
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)

Angel Like You

I don't know what on earth I'd do without an angel like you.

I'd be lost like a ship at sea that took a wrong turn in the dark
Could put a pen to the story of my life but never know where to start
I'd be skipping days and slipping through the nights without feeling a thing
If you weren't here putting me right, what would my life mean

I don't know what on earth I'd do without an angel like you,
Caught in a fire so hot without the rain to make it stop,
They would paint me a fool in a world that's so cruel,
Would be hell to go through without an angel like you.

All I need is a shot of your smile to chase the blues away
And anybody else woulda give it up, you're the kind of love that stays
All of that time I was looking for you, I knew there had to be a plan
And I get everything I ever wanted in life when you tell me I'm a good man

I don't know what on earth I'd do without an angel like you,
Caught in a fire so hot without the rain to make it stop,
They would paint me a fool in a world that's so cruel,
Would be hell to go through without an angel like you.

I don't know what on earth I'd do without an angel like you,
Caught in a fire so hot without the rain to make it stop,
They would paint me a fool in a world that's so cruel,
Would be hell to go through without an angel like you.

I don't know what on earth I'd do without an angel like you.

Let's Do Something Tonight

If you're looking for a reason not to call it a night, I got one
I wanna get you right up to where you're feeling alright and then some
I wanna take this conversation out of this neon situation
Instead of us not saying what we're both thinking and I'm thinking...

Let's do something tonight
We'll be talking about in the morning, in the morning, in the morning
Let's do something tonight
We'll be talking about in the morning, in the morning, in the morning
Yeah

We can find a little song we ain't ever heard and sing it
Pour a little glass of something smooth and strong and drink it
We can lose all track of time, my eyes on yours and yours on mine
Before the fear of falling starts to sink in, I'm thinking...

Let's do something tonight
We'll be talking about in the morning, in the morning, in the morning
Let's do something tonight
We'll be talking about in the morning, in the morning, in the morning
Yeah

Girl we could do it all night long,
Say the word and we'll be gone,
We can do anything you ever wanted

Let's do something tonight, yeah
Tonight, yeah

Let's do something tonight
We'll be talking about in the morning, in the morning, in the morning
Let's do something tonight
We'll be talking about in the morning, in the morning, in the morning
Yeah
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight

Your Last Broken Heart

Baby you've had your share of a love that went nowhere
It starts out honest then ends in broken promises
I know what you've been through but girl I promise you
I'm not gonna do what you think I'm gonna do, no

Your last broken heart was your last broken heart, baby
Say goodbye to goodbye, I ain't ever gonna change my mind
This is the part where our forever starts
So your last broken heart was your last broken heart
Mmm, your last broken heart

Just forget every tear, drop that brought you here
Just let down your wall, I'll be your wrecking ball
My love will never quit, so just get used to it
Seal it with a kiss so you won't forget

Your last broken heart was your last broken heart, baby
Say goodbye to goodbye, I ain't ever gonna change my mind
This is the part where our forever starts
So your last broken heart was your last broken heart

Hey trust me when I say, I love you every single day
That won't ever change and that won't go away

Your last broken heart was your last broken heart, baby
Say goodbye to goodbye, I ain't ever gonna change my mind
This is the part where our forever starts
So your last broken heart was your last broken heart

Your last broken heart
Your last broken heart
Yeah

What Does

Sorry, you whispered, me too, I replied
As we both sat there at the end of the line
It's not like either of us didn't fight
When the bell was ringing
When we went down swinging, you know

I never thought we'd be one more tragedy
You and me, we're supposed to beat the odds
When you stick it out or when you don't give in
Or when you give it everything you've got
When you hold on through thick and through thin
And when that kind of love doesn't win, what does?
What does?

I think the hardest part of it all
Is that you won't be there after we fall
You'll just be a memory that hangs on my wall
Of a good thing gone
Of a right gone wrong, you know

I never thought we'd be one more tragedy
You and me, we're supposed to beat the odds
When you stick it out or when you don't give in
Or when you give it everything you've got
When you hold on through thick and through thin
And when that kind of love doesn't win, what does?
Oh, what does?

I never thought we'd be one more tragedy
You and me, we're supposed to beat the odds
When you stick it out or when you don't give in
Or when you give it everything you've got
When you hold on through thick and through thin
And when that kind of love doesn't win, what does?
Oh, what does?
Oh, what does?
What does?

A Lot Like Love

Yeah, love's a new born baby smile
Daddy walking his daughter down the aisle
A long first kiss that lingers in your mind
The smell of that first summer rain
A feeling that you can't explain
Makes you wish you could go back in time

Of all the memories, good and bad
Still find myself looking for what we had
I always thought I'd find a better one
And I bought into that young man's life
But looking back now I realize
I still don't know exactly what it was
It sure felt a lot like love

And I wasted good years running round
Trying to be the king of this old town
Always moving onto something new
But time goes by and I'm still here
And all the new has disappeared
Finally I'm forced to face the truth

Of all the memories, good and bad
Still find myself looking for what we had
I always thought I'd find a better one
And I bought into that young man's life
But looking back now I realize
I still don't know exactly what it was
It sure felt a lot like love

Do you ever think about me?
Do you ever feel the same?
Am I just a faded picture
In a broke and dusty frame?

Of all the memories, good and bad
Still find myself looking for what we had
I always thought I'd find a better one
And I bought into that young man's life
But looking back now I realize
I still don't know exactly what it was
Oh, it felt a lot like love
A lot like love, yeah

Baby smile, down the aisle
Summer rain, you can't explain
You can't explain, you can't explain

Just Add Moonlight

You can buy her flowers and a good champagne
Write her a song on your old six-string
But if you really wanna change the game tonight
Just add moonlight

If you've said everything you wanna say
You're still not sure it's gonna go your way
If you're afraid that her heart's just out of sight
Just add moonlight

Kisses are sweeter and the world seems right
With that big yellow ball shining in her eyes
If you wanna make her fall in love tonight
Just add moonlight

There's a secret all the poets know
There's something special in the way it grows
If you wanna make a love song turn out right
Just add moonlight

Kisses are sweeter and the world seems right
With that big yellow ball shining in her eyes
If you wanna make her fall in love tonight
Just add moonlight

You hold her tighter and the whole world sings
It's that magic moment that's in every girl's dreams
If you wanna make her fall in love tonight
Just add moonlight, oh yeah

You hold her tighter and the whole world sings
It's that magic moment that's in every girl's dreams
You wanna make her fall in love tonight
Just add moonlight

Kisses are sweeter and the world seems right
With that big yellow ball shining in her eyes
If you wanna make her fall in love tonight
Just add moonlight, oh yeah
Just add moonlight, oh yeah
Just add moonlight, oh yeah
Just add moonlight

Revelations

Judgement day is finally here
Time to testify, my dear
Cheating ain't your only crime
You killed love, stole my time

Thank God I learned what you are
Before we went too far

Hallelujah and amen
For the lies I caught you in
Funny how your sin led to my salvation
We were this close to our due
Almost sold my soul to you
Praise the Lord for guilty hands and revelations

I might not have caught on to you
But you left a trail of clues
Working late, hung up calls
Hotel keys and paper-thin walls

And there's no good reason why
You've got no alibi

Hallelujah and amen
For the lies I caught you in
Funny how your sin led to my salvation
We were this close to our due
Almost sold my soul to you
Praise the Lord for guilty hands and revelations
For revelations

I wanna shout and clap my hands
Cause you make me one happy man

Hallelujah and amen
For the lies I caught you in
Funny how your sin led to my salvation
We were this close to our due
Almost sold my soul to you
Praise the Lord for guilty hands and revelations

I was blind but now I see
Everything you've done to me
Praise the Lord for guilty hands and revelations
For revelations

Prayer For The Road

I found it outside of Birmingham headed to another place
Took me five hundred miles to get to the bottom of my suitcase
It was in between a pair of jeans and my old black winter coat
It took my breath away when I read what she wrote

May the wheels keep turning, get you where you need to go
I'll keep the porch light burning 'til you get back home
May the angels fly beside you, down every mile you roll
May heaven hear this prayer, prayer for the road

As much as she misses me, she found the words to write
Enough to keep me warm on a cold December night
And when I'm running on empty and I'm feeling lost
I can hear her voice, whispering to God

May the wheels keep turning, get you where you need to go
I'll keep the porch light burning 'til you get back home
May the angels fly beside you, down every mile you roll
May heaven hear this prayer, prayer for the road

Must have read that note at least a thousand times
It always takes me where the highway meets the sky

May the wheels keep turning, get you where you need to go
I'll keep the porch light burning 'til you get back home
May the angels fly beside you, down every mile you roll
May heaven hear this prayer, prayer for the road
