Decent Excuse

 

Hiding behind the glasses of an old man’s bottle of rum

Was you

Sitting in that corner all by yourself

Alone

All alone

 

But with a Decent Excuse

I would take it

You decided otherwise

Thanks for helping me to know

You’re not worth it

 

Come on boy grow up

Get over yourself, right now

I’m tired of all your stories

And watching a grown man cry

Oh please...

Over this?

 

But with a Decent Excuse

I would take it

You decided otherwise

Thanks for helping me to know

You’re not worth it

 

You took advantage

Once again

Of who I am

And what I said

I couldn’t care less about what you think of me now

 

Ooo with a Decent Excuse

I would take it

You decided otherwise

Thanks for helping me to know

You’re not worth it


 

I Would Go (Canada Song)

 

I would climb an icy mountain

Yes, I would

And I would walk through a snowy blizzard

Barefoot

And I don’t care if I freeze

As long as you are with me

You’re very presence warms my heart

And that is all I need

 

I would go

Anywhere

To the edge of the world

Till the end of my life

I’m gonna feel alive

I’m gonna feel alive

 

Hide and seek is not so fun

When you are the chaser

It’s your turn now to track me down

So come and try to find me

 

I would go

Anywhere

To the edge of the world

Till the end of my life

I’m gonna feel alive

I’m gonna feel alive

 

Side by side with the 7 seas

We’ll travel the world

But I’m still learning to believe

In a man’s word

But all is change eternal progress

No death

So dry your drunken washed out Eyes and

Live Your Life

 

I would go

Anywhere

To the edge of the world

Till the end of my life

I’m gonna feel alive

I’m gonna feel…

 

I would climb an icy mountain

Oh I would

And I would walk through a snowy blizzard

Barefoot

 

Saturday

 

I’ve been walking down this road to nowhere

Days turn into nights

And I think I’m looking for something

That I just can’t seem to find

And I’m so tired I can’t take it anymore

So please someone, anyone...

Help me to find my way back home

 

Turn tomorrow

Into Saturday

Where all my worries are all thrown away

Where I can live my life the way I want to

 

How do you find your way

In the maze that life creates

Tell me what could I do

When my best has done me no good

And I’m so tired I can’t take it anymore

So please someone, anyone...

Help me to find my way back home

 

So turn tomorrow into Saturday

Where all my worries are all thrown away

Where I can live my life the way I want to

 

Turn tomorrow into Saturday

Where all my worries are all thrown away

Where I can live my life the way I want to

 

Yeah turn tomorrow into Saturday

Where all my worries are all thrown away

Where I can live my life the way I want to


 

Wide Eyes

 

Woke up this morning with a broken heart

Ooo, that’s been every day this month

Of course there’s a boy but I’ll hold that thought

For another song

 

Take me higher

Where eyes are wide

I swear this night

Won’t take me alive

 

Play guitar everyday to pass my time

Dream of a life outside of waitressing

I work my ass off just to get one step

Is that still not enough?

Tell me, is that still not enough?

 

Take me higher

Where eyes are wide

I swear this night

Won’t take me alive

 

Woke up this morning with a blacked out mind

Drinking I think a little too much

Yeah that bottle is my best friend

There when I need her

 

Take me higher

Where eyes are wide

I swear this night

Won’t take me

Won’t take me

Won’t take me alive
 

2 A.M.

 

I didn’t want to call you

And I know it’s late right now

But I’m drunk and it’s 2am

So listen and listen loud

 

I’m tired and angry and I don’t know why

The world keeps trying to change me

And I cannot divide

 

I don’t want to live in the past

But I’m still fighting to catch my breath

No miracle’s gonna save me

So I better change fast

Yeah I better change fast

 

Time and time again

I hate myself

'cause time and time again

I break myself

 

Where did my pond go

The place I called home

'cause now I’m running around in circles

Away from feeling alone

 

I believe in the road that leads to heaven above

But why is mine so Goddamn long

 

Time and time again

I hate myself

'cause time and time again

I break myself

 

Go ahead and say I’m crazy

I feel perfectly sane

Denial it just may be

Still my burden to tame


 

Lady

 

Making out in our brand new apartment

Thinking thoughts, thinking

Of the night you asked me to dance

'cause dancing is the way to my heart

 

The music has changed but we remain

Dancing as lovers do

And there’s no other way I’d spend my days

'cause I’m dancing with you

 

Oh, swing me, sway me

Always call me baby

You are gonna save me

Make me your lady

 

I don’t care bad or good

As long as you try

Life is a dance floor so you don’t you dare be a passerby

I’m gonna move like this and you’ll move like that

I see you staring now I know you love to watch me dance

 

Oh, swing me, sway me

Always call me baby

You are gonna save me

Make me your lady

 

Oh swing me sway me

Always call me baby B-cause

You are gonna save me

Make me your lady

 

Swing me, sway me

Always call me baby

You are gonna save me

Make me your lady

 

Oh swing me, sway me

Always call me baby B-cause

You are gonna save me

Make me your lady

 

Long Haul

 

A gentleman told me the other day

A girl like you should marry for money...

 

And I said, what’s wrong with marrying for size.

My man’s got the heart of a lion

 

Ooo, in it for the long haul

Ain’t we honey

Ooo, in it for the long haul

Ain’t we honey

 

Yeah, I’m his baby, his queen B

We’re in it for the long haul ain’t we honey

 

Ooo and the way he touches me and my tattoos

Who needs a mansion and fancy shoes

We're in it for the long haul

Ain’t we honey

Ooo, in it for the long haul

Ain’t we honey

 

And I thought why is this man

Sharing his advice

With all due respect

I don’t give a damn about your insight

 

We’re in it for the long haul, ain’t we honey

Oo, in it for the long haul, ain’t we honey

Oo, in it for the long haul, ain’t we honey

Oo, in it for the long haul, ain’t we honey

 

 

Big Brown Eyes

 

As I open up my

Big brown eyes

Every morning when the sun rises

And I’m hoping that it’s gonna be a good day

The kind where everything goes my way

 

Oh groove onto this beat as it moves your soul

Love is all around you it’s what makes you whole

 

Maybe find 50 dollars that nobody claims

And the sun is sharing her beautiful rays, where

You and I can dance the night away

That’s my kind of day

 

Oh groove onto this beat as it moves your soul

Love is all around you it’s what makes you whole

It’s better to love than not at all

So sing your melody, baby sing your song

So everybody listening can sing along

 

Come follow me lets take a walk

Watch the sunset and then we can talk

About everything and nothing

And the things that keep us young and alive

Simple yet effective is how I like to spend all of my time

 

Oh groove onto this beat as it moves your soul

Love is all around you it’s what makes you whole

It’s better to love than not at all

So sing your melody, baby sing your song

So everybody listening can sing along
