what a picture, brown hair and blue jeans
just a baby, still so naïve
full of wonder, are you really me?
33 never even crossed your mind
but it got here so fast i almost left you behind

oh yeah, i remember you
little girl, big dreams, nothin' to lose
a pocketful of possibilities and wings on your shoes
you might not even recognize me now
but i remember you

i remember cool summer nights
just like i'm still there with stars in my eyes
ridin' horses, it felt just like flyin'
before anyone said that it couldn't be done
sometimes i miss what it meant to be young

oh yeah, i remember you
little girl, big dreams, nothin' to lose
a pocketful of possibilities and wings on your shoes
you might not even recognize me now
but i remember you

when i forget my innocence
when life gets in the way
i try to see the world through your eyes
i remember you

a pocketful of possibilities and wings on your shoes
you might not even recognize me now
but i remember you
i remember you

when i get where i'm goin'

right now
i'm down
hangin' on by a thread somehow
hard times
heartache
hard to believe it won't stay this way
but someday… someday

when i get where i'm goin'
i'm gonna' take a deep breath
when i finally arrive
all the seeds i've been sowin'
they're gonna blossom and bloom
they're gonna grow real tall
i won't worry `bout nothin' at all
when i get where i'm goin'
when i get where i'm goin'
i know
tomorrow
will be better but the wheels turn slow
so i tell
myself
i'll look back on this and i'll laugh like hell
someday… someday


when i get where i'm goin'
i'm gonna' take a deep breath
when i finally arrive
all the seeds i've been sowin'
they're gonna blossom and bloom
they're gonna grow real tall
i won't worry `bout nothin' at all
when i get where i'm goin'
when i get where i'm goin'

i don't know where
but i'll get there
someday… someday

when i get where i'm goin'
i'm gonna' take a deep breath
when i finally arrive
all the seeds i've been sowin'
they're gonna blossom and bloom
they're gonna grow real tall
i won't worry `bout nothin' at all
when i get where i'm goin'
when i get where i'm goin'

well i got myself in a real bad situation
i'm so far in i can't find my way out
seems i've gone from bad to worse to desperation
i've prayed as hard as i can pray
i know help is on the way
but i'm in a dive and fallin' fast
is it too much to ask

please be somethin' with wings
a guardian angel come to rescue me
love enough to lift me up
and set me safely back down on my feet
please… somethin' with wings

well i'm face to face with some messy consequences
from all the bad decisions that i've made
some folks say there ain't no second chances
but i've never lost my faith
in your mysterious ways
i know you'll help me out
(but it) sure is a long way down

please be somethin' with wings
a guardian angel come to rescue me
love enough to lift me up
and set me safely back down on my feet
please… somethin' with wings

i'll let go it's in your hands
i know you've got a plan
you know what's best for me
you'll send me what i need
but please… please

please be somethin' with wings
a guardian angel come to rescue me
love enough to lift me up
and set me safely back down on my feet
please...please
please be somethin' with wings
a guardian angel come to rescue me
strong enough to lift me up
and set me safely back down on my feet
please… somethin' with wings
please, please, please, somethin' with wings

blue monday
gray mornin'
it hits me with no warnin'
black coffee
ain't helpin'
silver linin' seems out of the question
it's all about perspective
everything's alright

when i'm seein' the world through the right colored glasses
it's all crystal clear
but when i lose sight of what really matters
that's when i wind up here

green with envy
seein' red
it's only in my head
white knuckled control
why can't i just let go
my reality's golden
if i just open my eyes
when i'm seein' the world through the right colored glasses
it's all crystal clear
but when i lose sight of what really matters
that's when i wind up here

it's all about perspective
everything's alright

when i'm seein' the world through the right colored glasses
it's all crystal clear
but when i lose sight of what really matters
that's when i wind up here

blue monday


that's where i wanna live
templeton thompson/ porter howell/ sam gay
big loud songs%big loud bucks; songs of bud dog music c/o music of windswept%bug music inc; after the fire c/o sony atv tunes llc/there’s one music (ascap)

well i heard a man talkin' `bout a place where
it's alright to be yourself
where the light shines a little bit brighter
and there's always plenty wisdom in the well
that's where, that's where i wanna live
that's where, that's where i wanna live

he said the path is gonna seem a little clearer
not so many stumblin' stones in the way
who you're seein' when you're lookin' in the mirror
you're gonna like a little better every day
that's where, that's where i wanna live
(that's where i wanna spend my time)
that's where, that's where i wanna live

all you really need to get there
is faith and a strong desire
even if you're down at the bottom
you just reach out your hand
let the man with the plan
pull you out the muck and the mire

so i'm packin' up all my old baggage
i'm goin' down to the riverside
i'm gonna throw it all in to the water
and then jump on that peace train and ride
that's where, that's where i wanna live
(that's where i wanna live… everybody say…)
that's where, that's where i wanna live
(that's where i wanna live forever, now)
that's where, that's where i wanna live
(that's where i wanna live… everybody say…)
that's where, that's where i wanna live


a little rain
templeton thompson/kevin fisher
big loud songs%big loud bucks (ascap); songs of the court (bmi)

a little rain'll do ya good
`round here the weather's hit or miss
if you don't think so then you should
`cause that's just the way it is
you can hide, stay inside
or face the clouds with arms out open wide
you decide

a little pain'll do ya good
it'll make you grow up fast
the hurt is so misunderstood
until long after it's passed
then you see, that you're free
from what held you under lock and key
from what used to be

yeah, life can be extraordinary
yeah, but the truth about reality
is what goes up comes down
and i've found
a little pain, a little rain'll do ya good

a little change'll do ya good
it'll open up your eyes
you'll see things you never would
if you didn't have to try
you never know, until you go
down that unfamiliar road
and feel right at home

yeah, life can be extraordinary
yeah, but the truth about reality
is what goes up comes down
and i've found
a little change, a little pain'll do ya good
a little pain, a little rain'll do ya good
a little rain'll do ya good


i can do this
bonnie bramlett/sam gay/templeton thompson
big loud songs%big loud bucks; songs of bud dog music c/o music of windswept%bug music inc (ascap); songs of kicking bird music songs of windswept pacific (sesac)

i can do this, but it's gonna be hard
i can get through this
`cause i've got the scars to prove i have before
and i have survived, i'm still alive

i can do this, but it's gonna take time
i've learned to live with everything that life has handed me
with humility
and i have survived, i'm still alive

this ain't the first time i've been knocked down
this ain't the worst kind of trouble i've seen
god knows that i know what to do down here on my knees
i'm beggin' please, have mercy on me

i can do this, but i'm gonna need help
i know i can't do it all by myself
you know i've tried and tried
and i've paid such a heavy price
but i have survived, i'm still alive


this ain't the first time i've been knocked down
this ain't the worst kind of trouble i've seen
god knows that i know what to do down here on my knees
i'm beggin' please, have mercy on me, `cause with your help, i know….

i can do this


lesson in there somewhere
tt/sam gay/darin lake
big loud songs%big loud bucks; songs of bud dog music c/o music of windswept (ascap); publishing designee (bmi)

well i cowboyed up and climbed on back of that wild-eyed palomino
i was fearless i was foolish i was gonna be the one to settle him down
they said hold on tight, he's a real live el diablo
i was sure of myself right up until i hit the ground

i bet there's a lesson in there somewhere
it's prob'ly obvious, starin' me in the face
but i don't feel like learnin' today
maybe tomorrow

this ain't the first time i've ignored that little voice tellin' me don't go there
but listenin' has never been one of my strongest suits
i tend to jump right in, sink or swim and it's gotten me nowhere
silly me, i still believe my broken heart is waterproof

i bet there's a lesson in there somewhere
it's prob'ly obvious, starin' me in the face
but i don't feel like learnin' today
maybe tomorrow

not today, not right now

it's just too hard, for cryin' out loud
what doesn't kill ya, only makes you stronger they say
but i don't feel like learnin' today
maybe tomorrow
but not today….i bet there's a lesson in there somewhere…


what i believe
templeton thompson/sam gay
big loud songs%big loud bucks; songs of bud dog music c/o music of windswept%bug music inc (ascap)

i believe that the sky is blue
that trees are green and ice is cool
when it hits your tongue on a hot summer day

and i believe in the moon and stars
and that's it's alright to be who you are
and i know god can hear me when i pray

that's what i believe
it's my own interpretation
what i believe
without any reservation
i don't mind and it's just fine if you disagree
that's what i believe

i believe in workin' hard
that workin' hard will get you far
but what i do ain't all of who i am

and i believe in askin' questions
gettin' up instead of sittin' down
when it's time to take a stand

that's what i believe
it's my own interpretation
what i believe
without any reservation
i don't mind and it's just fine if you disagree
that's what i believe

i believe in angels
i think they're watchin' over us
and i believe we're able
but mostly i believe in love

that's what i believe
it's my own interpretation
what i believe
without any reservation
i don't mind and it's just fine if you disagree
that's what i believe


we're all on our way somewhere
templeton thompson
big loud songs%big loud bucks (ascap)

we're all on our way somewhere
headed down some different roads
it's easy to get lost out there
we don't always find our way back home
sometimes life ain't fair
we're all on our way somewhere

we're all doin' the best we can
sometimes that's the hardest thing to do
we all need a helpin' hand
to pick us up, to pull us through
when we can't find the strength to stand
we're all doin' the best we can

yeah we're twistin' and turnin'
constantly learnin'
tryin' to make sense of it all
walkin' and crawlin'
stumblin' and fallin'
but we're always stronger after the fall

we all got our own story to tell
they might sound similar, but they're not the same
me i've lived through some livin' hell
and i'm still dealin' with the pain
but i'm feelin' better than i've ever felt
we all got our own story to tell

yeah we're twistin' and turnin'
constantly learnin'
tryin' to make sense of it all
walkin' and crawlin'
stumblin' and fallin'
but we're always stronger after the fall

we're all on our way somewhere
headed for the great unknown
and i've gotten lost out there
but i always know i'm not alone
it ain't easy and life ain't always fair
we're all on our way somewhere
we're all doin' the best we can
we all got our own story to tell
we're all on our way somewhere


it takes her away
templeton thompson
songs of peer, ltd (ascap)

what's a matter honey please don't cry
me and daddy don't mean to fight
it's almost over
god love that little girl
carryin' the weight of the world
on her shoulders
she runs outside, climbs on her chestnut horse
before too long she won't be cryin' anymore

it takes her away gives her wings to fly
opens her heart and frees her mind
there's no denyin', when she's ridin'
her ev'ry worry disappears
the wind whispers away her tears
from the moment she takes the reins
it's sweet savin' grace
yeah it takes her away

whoever said life was fair
either never had to get nowhere
or don't know nothin'
now she's a woman not a little girl
livin' out in a grown up world
where it's always somethin'
yeah it's so easy to get let down and hard to find relief
but once she's in the saddle she can breathe

it takes her away gives her wings to fly
opens her heart and frees her mind
there's no denyin', when she's ridin'
her ev'ry worry disappears
the wind whispers away her tears
from the moment she takes the reins
it's sweet savin' grace
yeah it takes her away

away from the madness
away from the emptiness
the freedom feeds her soul
when she's not sure how much further she can go

it takes her away gives her wings to fly
opens her heart and frees her mind
there's no denyin', when she's ridin'
her ev'ry worry disappears
the wind whispers away her tears
from the moment she takes the reins
it's sweet savin' grace
yeah it takes her away

what's a matter honey please don't cry, me and daddy don't mean to fight


must've been a cowboy
tt/sam gay
songs of peer, ltd (ascap)


i'm a young woman, but i've got an old soul
you can see it when you look in my eyes
i've always had a notion that i was born too late
i've felt that way since i was just a child

must've been a drifter, `cause baby i still love to roam
must've been a dreamer, `cause the dream still isn't gone
and i still get this feelin' time to time
that i must've been a cowboy in another life

at night i dream of horses, feel the thunder of the herd
and the coolness of a frontier summer night
and it ain't just imagination, it's like these memories are real
catchin' up to me from some forgotten time

must've been a drifter, `cause baby i still love to roam
must've been a dreamer, `cause the dream still isn't gone
and i still get this feelin' time to time
that i must've been a cowboy in another life

i knew these stars when they were younger
i've been down this road before

must've been a drifter, `cause baby i still love to roam
must've been a dreamer, `cause the dream still isn't gone
and i still get this feelin' time to time
that i must've been a cowboy in another life


they can't hurt you now
tt/sam gay/sally barris
universal music-mgb songs; music of windswept%bug music inc; wrensong publishing corp (ascap)

i don’t know who it was that told you you’re not good enough
i don’t know who it was that showed you all the wrong kinda love
and i don’t know who tried to break your spirit down
but i’ll tell ya here & now they don’t see what i see

all those ghosts that used to haunt ya
they can’t hurt you now
all those voices from your past
you can shut ‘em out
they can’t hurt you now

you’re stronger than you think you are you’re just frozen by the fear
just take it one step at a time now baby when you need me i’ll be here
pretty soon those mountains won’t seem quite so high
‘cause over on the other side
you’ll fin’lly be free from

all those ghosts that used to haunt ya
they can’t hurt you now
all those voices from your past
you can shut ‘em out
they can’t hurt you now

shadows of doubt might slow you down sometimes
before you know it you will say goodbye to

all those ghosts that used to haunt ya
they can’t hurt you now
all those voices from your past
you can shut ‘em out
they can’t hurt you now
can’t hurt you now


i love to run
tt/sam gay
connected at the hit songs (ascap)

steppin' out into the light, my whole life's led me to this moment
i'll lay it all out on the line, time to shine, time to rock & roll
i'm feelin' a million butterflies oh but i've never been so ready
watch me when i hit my stride, speed of light, yeah i'm strong & steady

i love to run
there's a feelin' that drives me
a fire down inside me that burns like the sun
and fly, i gotta fly
'cause for me it's like breathin'
my reason for bein'
when i'm most alive
i love to run

if you see me start to fade, if the day seems to have my number
ain't no need to be afraid, i'll escape from the cloud i'm under
'cause i ain't in it for the fame, or the pay or the so-called glory
i'm just livin' how i'm made, that's what they'll say
when they tell my story

i love to run
there's a feelin' that drives me
a fire down inside me that burns like the sun
and fly, i gotta fly
'cause for me it's like breathin,'
my reason for bein'
when i'm most alive

i won't settle for good enough
i reach and i rise above
heart & soul i'm all in
i'm challengin' gravity
ridin' on angels wings
out here i'm one with the wind

i love to run
there's a feelin' that drives me
a fire down inside me that burns like the sun
and fly, i gotta fly
'cause for me it's like breathin'
my reason for bein'
when i'm most alive
i love to run

never be the same
tt/roy hurd
universal music-mgb songs(ascap); warner-tamerlane publishing corp (bmi)

you taught me how to really see
and to hear God’s voice speakin’ to me
thoughts of you they break my heart
and heal it too all at the same time

let my tears fall into the river
let it carry away my pain
let the sun draw up the water
‘til the clouds send down the healin’ rain
i will walk up on the mountain
to the wind i’ll speak your name
without you here beside me
i will never be the same

i see you when the ponies run
in the golden hour of the setting sun
you walk with me every night in my dreams
and though you’re gone i’m never alone

let my tears fall into the river
let it carry away my pain
let the sun draw up the water
‘til the clouds send down the healin’ rain
i will walk up on the mountain
to the wind i’ll speak your name
without you here beside me
i will never be the same

i will walk up on the mountain
to the wind i’ll speak your name
without you here beside me
i will never be the same
never be the same
