Lyrics

Stormy Waters

Outta sight
Outta mind
That’s just not the case this time
I’m not sure if what I want is really even worth a shot

But I need to wipe out all the fears of you and I
I need to jump right off where I can’t fly

Cause my mind’s playing tricks on me, yeah
There’s just no time to breathe
I need to go into the deep unknown
I wish I knew how this would end
Now I’m stuck trying to pretend that I won’t drown
Stormy waters follow me around

You and I are finished before it’s started
Cause in my mind I’ve played it out and I’m left broken hearted

I know it sounds like a sad country song
But it makes it hard when the theme is like a fairytale gone wrong
Cause my mind’s playing tricks on me, yeah
There’s just no time to breathe
I need to go into the deep unknown
I wish I knew how this would end
Now I’m stuck trying to pretend that I won’t drown
Stormy waters follow me around

And I’m not alright
Going on without you in my life
I just can’t tell if this is real or right
Or if this step is really worth the fight
Cause my mind’s playing tricks on me
And it’s left no time to breathe
And Im spinning out of control
And there’s just no letting go of what we are or what could be

Cause my mind’s playing tricks on me, yeah
There’s just no time to breathe
I need to go into the deep unknown
I wish I knew how this would end
Now I’m stuck trying to pretend that I won’t drown
Stormy waters follow me around
Oh, all around, all around

Nashville

I find myself wishing away the days
Wishing the nights would last forever
Cause there is no other place I'd rather be

You keep on running through my brain
I try to play it cool, not to give it away
But I know you're whats kept me sane all this time

So I wanna lie right here with my eyes closed
Pretend to be sleeping so we can be close
Feel your heart beatin' next to mine
Wondering how I'm gonna leave this behind

When I pack my bags and leave you here
Thinking about it can bring me to tears
Remember, when I'm missing you and I will
It’s only 4000 miles to Nashville

Letting go of your hand
Was like folding the page in a book before bed
You know it’s time to lay your head
But you know in your heart that this won't be the end
And I know all this time
Would seem so wrong
If I didn't have you by my side, all along

So I wanna lie right here with my eyes closed
Pretend to be sleeping so we can be close
Feel your heart beatin' next to mine
Living in this moment in time

When I watch you drive off and leave me here
Thinking about it can bring me to tears
Remember, when I'm missing you and I will
It’s only 4000 miles to Nashville

And I've spent my time
Trying to move on
But I still will cry
Because our understanding was so strong

So I wanna lie right here with my eyes closed
Try to sleep without you so close
Feelin’ your heart beatin' next to mine
Just thinking bout seeing you one more time

Well, hopefully life will lead us back
Only God knows what's in the plan
Remember, when I'm missing you and I always will
It's only 4000 miles to Nashville

Heart In Different Places

I've got three places I call home
But here I am on my own
It's the people who make the place, not the town
I'd like to get 'em in a plane and fly 'em all to the same place
So my heart can be together, beat as one

Now I don't know where I'm going
I might just need a moment
I'm so far gone I'm barely holdin, holdin on
My map was blown off in the wind
I gotta draw out my own directions
So my heart can be together, beat as one

I've got my heart in different places
Truth is that I'm wastin' my time
Missing every piece
Gotta use that fire in my soul
From that red hot burning hole in my heart
To get me where I need to be

So I can breathe
So I can breathe

People may have found I'm often lost and off the ground
But I'm never more than just a call away
They know whenever we're together we can weather it forever
So bring the thunder and lightning we'll make it through the rain

I've got my heart in different places
Truth is that I'm wastin' my time
Missing every piece
Gotta use that fire in my soul
From that red hot burning hole in my heart
To get me where I need to be

Cause you are the light
That will not fail
And I carry everywhere I go
It's in my blood and it saves my soul
And I know, we won’t miss a beat
I need to be free with every piece of me be free

I've got my heart in different places
The truth is that I'm wastin' my time
Missing every piece
Gotta use that fire in my soul
From that red hot burning hole in my heart
To get me where I need to be

So I can breathe
So I can breathe
You know I wanna be free
With every piece of me

Nobody's Knockin'

Hey, that’s all it takes
To get my mind planning out our fates
Hey you, now I’m playing it cool
Should you talk to my dad, like are we engaged
Like hey sir can I have her hand
and he said please go right on head cause’

Nobody’s knockin’ down that door and nobody’s waiting in line
He said if I hear her cry im alone once more it might be the end of my time
She might be a little rough on the edges but i swear she has the best of intentions
She’ll keep you warm when times get hard
So don’t you break her heart
Yeah she’ll keep you warm when times get hard, so don’t you break her heart

When I think of how this ends
I think 3 kids with a maid and chef
You take me, annually to our Hawaiian estate on our private jet
So sit me down try that glass shoe
My dad will make sure that I squeeze into cause

Nobody’s knockin’ down that door and nobody’s waiting in line
He said if I hear her cry im alone once more it might be the end of my time
She might be a little rough on the edges but i swear she has the best of intentions
She’ll keep you warm when times get hard
So don’t you break her heart
Yeah she’ll keep you warm when times get hard, so don’t you break her heart

They say these things happen when you least expect it
When I don’t expect it I expect the unexpected
Stuck on this merry go round round
Come on let me make my family proud cause

Nobody’s knockin’ down that door and nobody’s waiting in line
He said if I hear her cry im alone once more it might be the end of my time
She might be a little rough on the edges but i swear she has the best of intentions
She’ll keep you warm when times get hard
So don’t you break her heart
Yeah she’ll keep you warm when times get hard, so don’t you break her heart

Incredibly Single

I have waited around for a guy to sweep me off the ground
I’m not gonna cry okay I’m not gonna lie
It burns me deep down

Cause I’d say I don’t need a man at all
But I don’t wanna be the one with 50 cats in my home

Said hey, hey guys
Yeah you, you’re looking pretty fine
If you wanna take my hand
I’ll show you how to be my man

You could have long blonde hair
Could be a blue eyed pair and an accent, we could fit
From the British land or Paris France or the southern continent
You gotta make me laugh add a little romance
and the cute things wouldn’t hurt

Cause I am incredibly single
And I’m ready to mingle

I’m not crazy or complicated
Just stick to the rules and you won’t be jaded
I’m not asking for much around here so step on up and get your butt in gear now
Please don’t take your time see im pretty cool if you haven’t realized

Don’t ask me why
I’m as clueless as I’ve ever been
So I’ll say it again

Hey, hey guys
Yeah you, you’re looking pretty fine
If you wanna take my hand
I’ll show you how to be my man

Maybe bout 6 feet tall
Catch me when I fall
And a charmer I could deal
I need a Worldly man with a healthy
Bank account could this be real

Cause I am incredibly single
And I'm ready to mingle

You may say I’m overdramatic
But I’m just being me, yeah
Don’t hesitate ask me on a date
If you’re liking what you see

Said hey, hey guys
Yeah you, you’re looking pretty fine
If you wanna take my hand
I’ll show you how to be my man

Cause I’m not desperate
I'm just lonely
If you feel the same
Come on just phone me

Cause I'm incredibly single

Sad For Awhile

Sometimes this life gets to me
And it’s hard to control
I hold it in
So you cant see
My life unfold

Cause my fear is being weak
But I’m human just like you
So when it feels like I just can’t go on
I turn to you

So don’t say anything
Don’t even make a sound
Cause at this point I just wanna know
That you’re around
Don’t question
Don’t act rational
Just hold me close cause that’s all I need
When I just wanna be
Sad for awhile

And when I don’t know how
To face this world on my own
And when I’m feeling low
Like I’m letting everybody down
You have this way of reassuring
That it’s all gonna be alright
And I feel so warm when you’re with me
Holding me tight

So don’t say anything
Don’t even make a sound
Cause at this point I just wanna know
That you’re around
Don’t question
Don’t act rational
Just hold me close cause that’s all I need
When I just wanna be
Sad for awhile

And when the force of this world
Is pushing me down
You need the strength to confide
Can give the power to move on
But until I get there
Oh until I get there
You know the right way
You know the right way

You won’t say anything
Won’t even make a sound
Cause at this point I just wanna know
That you’re around
You won’t question
Won’t act rational
Just hold me close cause that’s all I need
When I just wanna be
Sad for a while

Mistake

How could something so wrong seem so right
How could such a pretty man deceive my eyes
And you walk around like you don’t know what you do
You make me so confused

That’s why I put my lipstick on and get ready to go
I get my heart set up cause it’s bound to get broke
I know they warned me of you but I guess I’ll just have to learn
Cause you’re the mistake that I wanna make
The hard way

I watch my phone thinking you might call
But I know you’re not thinking about me at all
It drives me crazy but I just can’t let go
You make me lose control

That’s why I put my lipstick on and get ready to go
I get my heart set up cause it’s bound to get broke
I know they warned me of you but I guess I’ll just have to learn
Cause you’re the mistake that I wanna make
The hard way

They say why would anyone put their heart on the line
Why would anyone let him waste all their time
I say it all seems a little bit worth it when I’m with you

That’s why I put my lipstick on and get ready to go
I get my heart set up cause it’s bound to get broke
I know they warned me of you but I guess I’ll just have to learn

That’s why I put my lipstick on and get ready to go
I get my heart set up cause it’s bound to get broke
I know they warned me of you but I guess I’ll just have to learn
Cause you’re the mistake that I wanna make
You’re the mistake that I wanna make
You’re the mistake that I wanna make
The hard way

Take Me Out Dancing

Spent another week sittin' passing the time
I get a little tired trying to figure out life
Wanna get out of my head just a little
Won't make you ask no it won't be a riddle

Lace up for the game you won't find me in heels
I gotta be able to move that's the deal
When my feet hit the floor yeah we’re in for the night
You’ll know if you're any man of mine

Take me, take me out dancing
Romancin, two steppin hand clappin kind
I want the real thing, nitty gritty
So baby don't take your time
I wanna go fishin in the dark on your cadillac ranch
Down to Chattahoochee to see what we can catch tonight

Don’t be the guy who says i don’t dance
You call the cab and I'll call the friends
Lets tap the keg and fill up some cups
Cause we ain’t going down 'til the sun comes up

Take me, take me out dancing
Romancin, two steppin hand clappin kind
I want the real thing, nitty gritty
So baby don't take your time
I wanna go fishin in the dark on your cadillac ranch
Down to Chattahoochee to see what we can catch tonight
Oh tonight

Take me where the margaritas flow like water
Boot scoot over here to where the parties hotter
Dust off the bottle from that 9-5
Kick into gear this is my kinda night

Take me, take me out dancing
Romancin, two steppin hand clappin kind
I want the real thing, nitty gritty
So baby don't take your time
I wanna go fishin in the dark on your cadillac ranch
Down to Chattahoochee to see what we can catch tonight
Oh tonight

I wanna go fishin in the dark on your cadillac ranch
Down to Chattahoochee to see what we can catch tonight

Take me, take me out dancing
Romancin, two steppin hand clappin kind
I want the real thing, nitty gritty
So baby don't take your time
I wanna go fishin in the dark on your cadillac ranch
Down to Chattahoochee to see what we can catch tonight
Oh tonight

Heartbreaking

You say my curiosity ended this
You say if I didn’t worry bout the lies
I wouldn’t miss
You the way I do
You know I’m trying to

Stop replacing the bad times with the good
Stop forgetting why I did what I thought I should
But go ahead put the blame on me
If you feel better cause all I see
Is someone so confused
By how not telling the truth
Can be so heartbreaking

You keep saying get over it
You keep saying you can change
But when you lose the faith
You lose the game
So I just gotta go my way

Stop replacing the bad times with the good
Stop forgetting why I did what I thought I should
But go ahead put the blame on me
If you feel better cause all I see
Is someone so confused
By how not telling the truth
Can be so heartbreaking

How can you not see the problem here
Why can’t you see how I would live in fear
Putting my heart in your hands
Just for you to break it again

Stop replacing the bad times with the good
Stop forgetting why I did what I thought I should
But go ahead put the blame on me
If you feel better cause all I see
Is someone so confused
By how not telling the truth
Can be so heartbreaking

Something Right

Come to the table my dear
I’ve been waiting on you for years
You are my queen king aces I’ll take you to all the places
You dream, you’re safe and sound here with me

What would I do if I never had the chance to meet you
Who would I be if I didn’t have your faith to guide me
Were dealt one hand to use the wrong or right way
So you can fill you life with love and it won’t leave you lonely

Oh we must’ve done something right
I’m not much of a gambler but the cards were on our side
I will go all in always
That’s a bet I will never, never wave
Cause I like these odd

Your love keeps me still
And I don’t want to miss a moment that you will
Leave every barrier behind you broken
We both know your path’s not for the faint of heart
Just as you have done for me i will help you through the dark

Oh we must’ve done something right
I’m not much of a gambler but the cards were on our side
I will go all in always
That’s a bet I will never, never wave
Cause I like these odd

And when the door looks like its almost closed
And were on separate ends of this big old world
I know, your voice will feel like home
There’s nothing you could do or say
That could break my love in anyway
You know, I’ll never fold

Oh we must’ve done something right
I’m not much of a gambler but the cards were on our side
I will go all in always
That’s a bet I will never, never wave
Cause I like these odd
