Don't Do It Lyrics

Baby don't you do it, don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

A sacrifice would make you happy if nothing for myself
Now you wanna leave me for the love of someone else
My pride is all gone whether I'm right or wrong
I need you baby to keep on keepin' on

You know I'm trying to my best
Oh i'm trying to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
Well I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

Go down to the river and there I be
I'm gonna jump in girl, but you don't care bout me
Open up your eyes
Can't ya see I love ya?
Open up you heart, girl
Can't ya see I need ya?

Oh baby don't do it, do it, do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
You know I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

Stare It Cold Lyrics

Under the weather
I never got better
Wrapped up in my disease
Mile away, she want to count my day
Look a little older in the light

Under the weather
Feelin' very heavy
Never up for no air

Sea legs start to wigglin'
And sick I'm still feelin'
Just know I never cared

Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold
Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold

Never thought about it
And never no questions
Seein' where I've gone wrong

No kiss made it magic
'Cause that old girl has had it
Then it's time for me to run along

Go Tell The Congregation Lyrics

Here I am
There I was
Here I go
Just follow me

If it was
Then it can
And we know
How it will be

When it was
Just because
Yes you know
It's not a dream

It's just all
C'mon y'all
I'll tell you
What I mean

When you want to lose your blues
Go tell the congregation
When there's nothing left that you can do
Go tell the congregation
When you want to tell the truth
Go tell the congregation
When the devil's got a hold of you
Go tell the congregation

Don't look back
Stay on track
It's a fact
A lesson to me

Keep in stride
With your pride
Now you know
How strong you can be

There's no time
Draw a line
Yes I know
That you can know me

Look alive
No surprise
Everybody wants to be free

"Everything is everything"

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Seeing Things Lyrics

I find it hard to shed a tear
You brought it all on yourself my dear
Wrong, yes I may be
Don't leave a light on for me
'Cause I ain't comin' home
It hurts me baby to be alone
Yes, it hurts me baby

A hundred years will never ease
Hearing things I won't believe
I saw it with my own two eyes
All the pain that I can't hide

And this pain starts in my heart
And this love tears us apart
You won't find me bent down on my knees
Ain't bendin' over backwards baby
Not to please

'Cause I'm seeing things for the first time
I'm seeing things for the first time, oh yeah
I'm seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

I used to dream
Of better days that never came
Sorry ain't nothin' to me
I'm gone and that's the way it must be
So please I've done my time
Lovin' you is such a crime
You won't find me down on, on my knees
Won't find me over backwards baby
Just to please

'Cause I'm seeing things for the first time
I"m seeing things for the first time
Seeing things for the first time
Oh I'm seeing things for the first time
Yeah, seeing things for the first time
I'm seeing things for the first time
Yeah, I'm seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

Girl From A Pawnshop Lyrics

With pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
She sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, well should she leave town
To play the role of lover expatriate
A nod to the waiter, always her flirty behavior
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter
From a bag under her sweater
And before she reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number
I never lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
We'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter
One tear falls like a feather
And disappears on the bar room floor
The gratuity included
You know the letter concluded
P.S. with all my love

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

I said P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love

Space Captain Lyrics

Once while travelling across the sky
This lovely planet caught my eye
And being curious, I flew close by
And now I'm caught here 'til I die

Until we die, until we die
We're just learning to live together
Learning to live together
Learning to live together

I lost my memory of where I've been
We all forgot we could fly
We all changed into peaceful men
And we'll return now to the sky

Chorus

We've got to get it together
It's getting better and better
we've go to get it together
It's getting better and better

Chorus

High Head Blues Lyrics

Sometimes I have a ghetto in my mind
Other times sunshine high head fine
In between I get cold, old mean
Intertwined with country pride open and kind
This draws a line

Sorry to coin a phrase
On either side is wisdom and rage
So keeping track of time
Racing with my age
Sleeping with the snakes
Forget that you showed up late
It ain't worth it baby

Chorus:
A charmed life it is
At least they tell you so
I got a good idea
It ain't like they say is so
And if it is then let me go
Let me go

Any day there might be hell to pay
But in other ways
It makes it seem ok
I'll tell you what I mean
It's not a plot nor a scheme
It's just peace in my mind
Again can I use the word kind
I ain't sorry about it baby

Chorus

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

How Much For Your Wings? Lyrics

How much for your wings?
How much for your wings?
Well it comes and it goes
How much for your wings?
And it's high and low
How much for your wings?
I can name a price
How much for your wings?
Many forget their pride

chorus

If I were you and and you were me
We'd know
And could it be what you perceive
Is wrong?
And what I mean what wrong could be
I don't know
I'm not naïve but I believe
So I may grow

How much for your wings?
The soul you kiss good-bye
How much for your wings?
Watch the stars collide

How does it feel
When you're the only one?

Young Man, Old Man Lyrics

Chorus:
Young man crazy
Old man wise
Some folks real
Some just jive
Young man crazy
Old man wise
Sun, stars, earth
Moon, sky, tides

Its been tough, livin rough
But you're here to stay
Six feet under the ground's
Not as hard as it sounds ok
Getting high, seeing with three eyes on a rainy day
Well I've been dusted, busted and blown away
Getting in your ear with nothing to fear
Let the music play
Big or tall it's gonna hit you all
Or get out the way
Come along baby, sounding strong baby
What I say
We all got lines and at the end we're all gonna pay

Chorus

Murder in mind and this time baby its all real
Take the devil aside its time to make a deal
Wash the blood if you want
But this truth you can't conceal
I'm gonna roll on, driving wheel

Chorus

Sun...
Stars...
Earth...
Moon...
Sky...
Tides...

I said if anybody wants some
Let me hear you say

Twice As Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

She Talks To Angels Lyrics

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna' make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

(Repeat Chorus)

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

(Repeat second verse)
(Repeat Chorus)

Shake Your Money Maker Lyrics

Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker, and then

I got a girl lives up on the hill
I got a girl lives up on the hill
Says she gonna love me but I don't believe she will

You gotta shake your moneymaker
Shake your money maker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker, and then

I got a girl and she just won't be true
I got a girl and she just won't be true
She's locked to the bridge, she won't do a thing I tell her to

She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
She wanna roll her activator
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't
