  1. Don't Let Him Go

    So you figure that you've got him all figured out
    He's a sweet talkin stud
    Who can melt a girl's heart with his pout
    He's the kind of lover that the ladies dream about

    He's got plenty of cash
    He's got plenty of friends
    He drives women wild
    Then he drives off in a mercedes-benz
    He's got a long wick with a flame at both ends
    He's hot

    But don't let him go
    Just give him a chance to grow
    Take it easy, take it slow
    And don't let him go

    He makes you so angry
    He makes you so sore
    The weight may be worth it
    But how can you wait anymore
    When you're wonderin what you're waitin' for
    Baby I don't know

    But don't let him go
    He just needs a chance to grow
    Take it easy, take it slow
    And don't let him go
    Don't let him go

  2. Music Man

    Recently I've been thinkin about what I am and where my priorities lie
    Gettin it together on some future plan, decidin what I need to get by
    I tried workin and schoolin but there just not my plan, oh no
    Can't ya see I'll always be a music man

    Well I could be pickin bluegrass or singin the blues, it doesn't really matter to me
    As long as I'm playin the music I just can't lose, and noones gonna tell me differently
    Cause all I really care about is sittin right here in my hands, oh yeah
    Can't ya see I'll always be a music man

    Well my momma sits and worries about me for days
    Even though she really likes the way the boy plays
    My daddy tells her I'm just goin through a phase
    But that's just what he always says
    I hear what they're sayin but I take it with a grain of sand, oh yeah
    Can't ya see I'll always be a music man
    (repeat) yeah

    To be happy you need only be real
    So don't let anyone try to turn your head around

  3. Take It On The Run

    Heard it from a friend who
    Heard it from a friend who
    Heard it from another you been messin' around
    They say you got a boy friend
    You're out late every weekend
    They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down

    But I know the neighborhood
    And talk is cheap when the story is good
    And the tales grow taller on down the line
    But I'm telling you, babe
    That I don't think it's true, babe
    And even if it is keep this in mind

    {Refrain}

    You take it on the run baby
    If that's the way you want it baby
    Then I don't want you around
    I don't believe it
    Not for a minute
    You're under the gun so you take it on the run

    You're thinking up your white lies
    You're putting on your bedroom eyes
    You say you're coming home but you won't say when
    But I can feel it coming
    If you leave tonight keep running
    And you need never look back again

    {Refrain x 3}

    Heard it from a friend who
    Heard it from a friend who
    Heard it from another you been messin' around

  4. Keep Pushin

    I used to be lonely till I learned about livin alone
    I found other things to keep my mind on
    And I'm gettin to know myself a little bit better
    Whoa , I keep pushin on
    Keep pushin on, yeah

    Goin through all the changes I made so many mistakes, oh yes I did
    Tryin to leave behind the heartaches
    And sometimes I think I was a little bit crazy, oh yeah
    Whoa, I keep pushin on

    Keep pushin, keep pushin, keep pushin, keep pushin on
    Keep pushin, keep pushin, you know you have got to be so strong
    Keep pushin, keep pushin, well even if you think your strength is gone
    Keep pushin on

    (solo)

    Well it's comin together I finally feel like a man, oh yes I do
    I never thought that I'd be where I am, oh
    Everyday I wake a little bit higher
    Whoa I keep pushin on, oh yeah

  5. Can't Fight This Feeling

    I can't fight this feeling any longer
    And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow
    What started out as friendship, has grown stronger
    I only wish I had the strength to let it show

    I tell myself that I can't hold out forever
    I said there is no reason for my fear
    Cause I feel so secure when we're together
    You give my life direction
    You make everything so clear

    And even as I wander
    I'm keeping you in sight
    You're a candle in the window
    On a cold, dark winter's night
    And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

    And I can't fight this feeling anymore
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for
    It's time to bring this ship into the shore
    And throw away the oars, forever

    Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for
    And if I have to crawl upon the floor
    Come crushing through your door
    Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

    My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
    I've been running round in circles in my mind
    And it always seems that I'm following you, girl
    Cause you take me to the places that alone I'd never find

    And even as I wander I'm keeping you in sight
    You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
    And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

    And I can't fight this feeling anymore
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for
    It's time to bring this ship into the shore
    And throw away the oars, forever

    Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for
    And if I have to crawl upon the floor
    Come crushing through your door
    Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

  6. Tough Guys

    She doesn't like the tough guys.
    They think that they can do anything they please.
    But they're gonna get a surprise,
    When she brings them to their knees.

    'Cus she doesn't like the rough guys.
    They act like they can have any girl they choose.
    They've got tricks, but my baby got wise,
    So in case you haven't heard the news,

    She doesn't like the tough guys.
    She doesn't like the rough guys.
    So find some one you own size,
    'Cus she's not afraid of you.

    She doesn't like the tough guys.
    She thinks that they've got brains all where they sit.
    They think they're full of fire,
    She thinks they're full of shit.

    She doesn't like the tough guys.
    She says she's heard enough lies.
    She's gonna call your bluff, guys.
    And you better believe it's true.

    She don't like you.

  7. That Ain't Love

    You tell me what you think I'm feelin', you know why I do what I do
    Why should you listen to a word I'm sayin', when it's already so clear to you
    You tell me 'bout my bad intentions, you doubt the very things I hold true
    I can no longer live with your misconceptions, baby all I can say to you, is

    Chorus:
    That ain't love, I believe you've got the wrong emotion
    That ain't love, at least it doesn't feel like love to me
    As long as I say what you wanna hear
    Do what you wanna do, be who you want me to be
    You think that's love, well baby that ain't love to me

    We've got to talk it over sometime, these feelings won't just disappear
    I'm just gonna keep telling you what's on my mind
    Even if it's not what you wanna hear
    Oooh right now your world and mine are such different places
    Through yours I wander lost and confused
    And I feel like I'm speaking in a different language
    And the only words I haven't used, are

    chorus

    You keep tellin' me, you know a place where your life would be better
    You're makin' plans long-range
    But I don't know how you expect to get there, when you refuse to change

    (Solo)

    Oooh baby - chorus

    Ooh baby that ain't love, that ain't lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-love
    That ain't love, oh no, baby that ain't love, that ain't love
    (That ain't love, that ain't love, that ain't love, oohoo)

  8. Time For Me To Fly

    I've been around for you
    I've been up and down for you
    But I just can't get any relief
    I've swallowed my pride for you
    I've lived and lied for you
    But you still make me feel like a thief

    You got me stealin' your love away
    'Cause you never give it
    Peeling the years away
    And we can't relive it
    I make you laugh
    And you make me crya
    I believe it's time for me to fly

    You said we'd work it out
    You said that you had no doubt
    That deep down we were really in love
    Oh, but I'm tired of holding on
    To a feeling I know is gone
    I do believe that I've had enough

    I've had enough of the falseness
    Of a worn out relation
    Enough of the jealousy
    And the intoleration
    I make you laugh
    And you make me cry
    I believe it's time for me to fly

    {Refrain} Time for me to fly
    Oh, I've got to set myself free
    Time for me to fly
    And that's just how it's got to be
    I know it hurts to say goodbye
    But it's time for me to fly

    Oh, don't you know it's...
    {Refrain}

    It's time for me to fly
    {Repeat to end}

  9. Back On The Road Again

    Please don't hate me mama for what I'm about to do
    But the good times we've had together are just about now through
    Please don't misunderstand me, I hate to see you cry
    But I think that it might look better if I told you now goodbye

    I'm back on the road again, it's time I leave you now
    And maybe I'll see you next time, that I'm around
    Until then I hope your happy baby and good times come your way
    I'm back on the road again, I'm on my way

    Well I've loved you since the day I met you and I'll love you till the day I die
    But we both know the life I'm livin and we both know the reason why
    That I've got to leave ya mama and I've got to leave today
    But you know that I'll see you next time that I come through your town to play

    (chorus) ooh, bye-bye baby

  10. Keep On Lovin' You

    You should've seen by the look in my eyes, baby
    There was somethin missin
    You should've known by the tone of my voice, maybe
    But you didn't listen
    You played dead
    But you never bled
    Instead you lay still in the grass
    All coiled up and hissin

    And though I know all about those men
    Still I don't remember
    Cause it was us baby, way before then
    And we're still together
    And I meant, every word I said
    When I said that I love you I meant
    That I love you forever

    And I'm gonna keep on lovin you
    Cause it's the only thing I wanna do
    I don't wanna sleep
    I just wanna keep on lovin you

    (solo)

    And I meant every word I said
    When I said that I love you I meant
    That I love you forever

  11. Roll With The Changes

    As soon as you are able
    Woman I am willing
    To make the break that we
    Are on the brink of
    My cup is on the table
    Our love is spilling
    Waiting here for you to
    Take and drink of

    So if you're tired of the
    Same old story
    Turn some pages
    I'll be here when you are ready
    To roll with the changes

    I knew it had to happen
    Felt the tables turnin'
    Got me through my darkest hour
    I heard the thunder clappin'
    Felt the desert burnin'
    Until you poured on me
    Like a sweet sunshower

    So if you're tired of the
    Same old story
    Turn some pages
    I'll be here when you are ready
    To roll with the changes

    Roll with the changes

  12. Ridin' The Storm Out

    Ridin' the storm out, waitin' for the thaw out
    On a full moon night in the Rocky Mountain winter.
    My wine bottle's low, watching for the snow
    I've been thinking lately of what I'm missing in the city.

    And I'm not missing a thing
    Watchin' the full moon crossing the range
    Ridin' the storm out
    Ridin' the storm out.

    My lady's beside me, she's there to guide me.
    She says that alone we've finally found home.
    The wind outside is frightening,
    but it's kinder than the lightning life in the city.
    It's a hard life to live but it gives back what you give.

  13. 157 Riverside Avenue

    We flew into town on Sunday, had to find a place by Monday
    Tried Bridgeport and Westport, 'til we found a place that we thought would do
    157 Riverside Avenue.

    Saugatuck River's flowin', Mother nature's colors were showin'
    So cold, so rainy, we couldn't help feelin' blue
    Not enough time, too many things to do.

    We met a young girl on Main street, wanted to just pass her by
    She was homely, so lonely, She said, "Can I make love to you."
    We shouted 157 Riverside Avenue.

    It's over, Miss Lena, we're leaving. Such a pleasant stay, I must say.
    So nice, so easy, we hate to say goodbye to you
    At 157 Riverside Avenue.
