Gotta Get Gone I tiptoed out into the darkness Suitcase banging on my knee The neighbor’s dog had started barking And my heart was beating faster than a hummingbird’s wings Almost dawn…Gotta Get Gone I sold your diamond down in Austin Just enough to get me by Who needs to keep an empty promise When the Texas moon dangles like a pearl in the sky Saying come on…Girl, it’s time to get gone Gotta get gone like a thunderbolt flying Gotta get gone like an angel takes wing Gott get gone like a girl who is finding The woman she’s been waiting to be Yeah, I gotta get gone Out here I don’t hear the game on Out here, I can’t smell the beer And I’m not there to put the blame on Every time your mood is changing gear Cause it’s my song…And I gotta get gone Gotta get gone like a scar that is fading Gotta get gone like a shadow in light Gott get gone to a life that is waiting Cause this one never fit me right Yeah, I gotta get gone Gotta get gone like a comet is racing Burning light through a velvet of black Gotta get gone with the radio blasting And this time, I ain’t coming back Yeah, I gotta get gone Now, I’m ten miles out of El Paso Gas tank’s sinking down to “E” Road maps litterin’ the dashboard As I lay down road between my old life and me

Baby We Fly 04:47
Baby We Fly I am the tide. You are the moon Bright in the sky, I follow you You are a feather. I am the wind Soft as a whisper, I pull you in Home in the open sky, miles above ground Love that won’t touch down Baby we fly We don’t know why Coasting on the wind And we don’t even try Baby we fly Fate is the angel. Or was it just luck It doesn’t matter. We’re lighning struck Home in the open sky, miles above ground Love that won’t touch down Baby we fly We don’t know why Coasting on the wind And we don’t even try Baby we fly Closer to heaven with every touch Flying on air we can’t see But that doesn’t mean that it’s worth any less Cause it’s easy Baby we fly We don’t know why Coasting on the wind And we don’t even try Baby we fly

Girls Night Out Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys/Daryl Burgess Jimmy’s fumbling with a diaper, Bobby’s heating up the mac and cheese Pete is stuck on page two of little Johnny’s trigonometry It’s just one night a month when the women aren’t around We’re all down town…Cause it’s Girls Night Out Where we talk about love. We talk about life We talk about ticking clocks, botox and that’s not all We talk about sex We talk about the ex And PMS and clothes We even talk about the big “O” Men don’t really want to know what we talk about On Girls Night Out Having fun catching up on things that make us laugh and cry Yeah, the talking at the table loosens up with every glass of wine And when we get a little crazy, yeah, we get a little loud There’s no doubt…It’s Girls Night Out Where we talk about love We talk about life We talk about high heels, low carbs and spill our hearts We talk about sex We talk about the ex And gravity’s effect down below When you’re closing in on 4 -O Men don’t really want to know what we talk about On Girls Night Out We love our men and we tell ‘em so But there’re some places where a man can’t go You know, you know, you know We talk about love We talk about life We talk about babies and feelings and big dreams We talk about sex We talk about the ex We talk about first dates and soul mates And how we’re not the same- Oh Men don’t really want to know what we talk about On Girls Night Out

Fall to Fly 03:43
On winter days, the snow would glisten like a sea of diamonds in the sun All bundled up in hat and mittens, I’d be out the door and on the run To the meadow, my place Beneath branches of icy lace Arms held out, eyes shut closed I’d lean back and just let go and I would Fall to fly A snow-white angel, I’d spread my wings to the sky How I’d glide But soon I craved the city lights, they seemed far brighter than the moon on snow Turned in my wings for earthly things forgot the feel of clouds on indigo I was strong, I was proud Keeping both feet on the ground I feared love like I feared heights I just didn’t realize that I can Fall to fly A snow-white angel, I spread my wings to the sky Yes, I can fall to fly But now you’ve come along Like fallen snow at dawn you move me And with you by my side We’ll soar, we will climb straight to the heaven’s skies And we’ll fly A snow-white angel, I spread my wings to the sky Yes, I can fall to fly Cause now I’m gonna give love a try Fall to fly On winter days, I wait for snow and then I know the angel flies once more Fall to fly, fall to fly

Little Big Sky I been spending time in these city blocks Been rushing around, Don’t even have time for my thoughts These street lights don’t sparkle like southern stars do The skyscrapers feel like they’re jailing the moon I ask myself what am I doing here Cause life makes more sense where the blacktop disappears I need a Little Big Sky Where I can watch the whole sun rise Want to feel the warm wind blowing my troubles away Need a little simple I could use a little easy And miles and miles of nothing but miles I need a Little Big Sky…I need a Little Big Sky Gonna pack my bags, put the top down and drive Feel my soul exhale when I cross that county line Gonna hug my momma, drink some sweet iced tea Feel the world slow down from her front porch swing That red dirt road always leads me here And life makes more sense where the blacktop disappears I need a Little Big Sky Where I can watch the whole sun rise Want to feel the warm wind blowing my troubles away Need a little simple I could use a little easy And miles and miles of nothing but miles I need a Little Big Sky…I need a Little Big Sky I wanna go home Where you can count the stars falling Home Where my Daddy was born Home Yeah, the heartland is calling Home Is where I belong I need a Little Big Sky Where I can watch the whole sun rise Want to feel the warm wind blowing my troubles away Need a little of simple I could use a little easy And miles and miles of nothing but miles I need a Little Big Sky…I need a Little Big Sky

On Again Off Again I’m stewing in the kitchen So angry that I’m banging those pots and pans And you’re doing What you’re always doing Storming out the driveway saying that’s the end of that But I know that you’ll be back cause Like the turn signal blinking as your truck goes round the bend We’re on again, off again, on again Like a song on your radion with static cutting in We’re on again, off again, on again Our tempers Are like road flares We light ‘em up and hope we don’t get burned And we keep on Making wrong turns Breaking down and breaking up Taking short cuts back to love We don’t ever learn Like the turn signal blinking as your truck goes round the bend We’re on again, off again, on again Like a song on your radion with static cutting in We’re on again, off again, on again Off again We’re living for the passion Rocky ride to love Cause half the fun is fighting Is making up Like the turn signal blinking as your truck goes round the bend We’re on again, off again, on again Like a song on your radion with static cutting in We’re on again, off again, on again Off again

Put That Bottle Down Baby don’t go not tonight There’s nothing for you there Let me love you right You feel the pull, the ache the need Baby, can’t you see what it does to me Put that bottle down…Drink me up Put your arms around me Let me give you that rush Every sip’s gonna take you deeper in this love Put that bottle down…Baby, drink me up You’re a drowning man Who won’t be saved You keep diving in, I’m doing all I can Guess you love the waves You feel the pull, the ache the need Baby, can’t you see What it does to me Put that bottle down…Drink me up Put your arms around me Let me give you that rush Every sip’s gonna take you deeper in this love Put that bottle down…Baby, drink me up I watch you dancing with devil And I dread the day you take that final spin Babe, you know I love you But someday I’m giving up on cutting in Put that bottle down…Drink me up Put your arms around me Let me give you that rush Every sip’s gonna take you Deeper in this love Put that bottle down…Baby, drink me up

Watching The Sparks Fly Fourth of July As barbecues bake the dusk to night Tricia kicks a bottle cap down Pearl Street With a wish and a sigh, She waves a sparkler around in the heat Casting spells Light flickers in her eyes Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July) Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July) Watching The Sparks Fly This hot summer night The Beach Boys blast on 8 track high As Jeremy coaxes his Camaro down Pearl Street He idles at lights Then races out at the green, tires screech A comet’s tail His muffler drags on the white line Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July) Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July) Watching The Sparks Fly Who’s to say what makes the sparks dance Twirling gypsies of light entranced When eyes meet eyes Worlds collide Fourth of July (Fourth of July) As old women gossip like crows on a clothesline Tricia and Jeremy cruise down Pearl Street They’re mesmerized He - by her lip gloss, and her - by his eyes At Lover’s Point They kiss and watch stars shooting by Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July) Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July) Watching The Sparks Fly (Fourth of July)

Just Like It Was Texas I’ve handled the road of my life with great caution Afraid to watch the speedometer rise And I thought that love should be smooth as a highway True as a blue summer sky With mile after mile of your wide open smile From Amarillo to San Padre Isle Your drove cross my heart…Just like it was Texas Wide-eyed and restless I let you in And I’ve got the smile To prove you were speeding Tire tracks leading to the border and back Our love like the wind danced a wicked wild two-step As stars do-see-doed way up in the sky You raced my heart way over the limit Til I felt it would burst like a fireflies’ light With mile after mile of your wide open smile I’ve never felt so alive Your drove cross my heart…Just like it was Texas Wide-eyed and restless I let you in And I’ve got the marks To prove you were speeding Tire tracks leading to the border and back Your love’s taken me places that I’ve never been From Houston to heaven to heartache And even though you left me as fast as you found me I’d do it all again Just to say Your drove cross my heart…Just like it was Texas Wide-eyed and restless You blew into town And I’m keeping the marks To prove you were speeding Tire tracks leading to the border and back

Shave 02:37
Shave Six AM hits me like a freight train Alarm clock wailing like a demon gone mean Clinging to the bed I start negotiating Five more minutes on that last dream Then I hear the water running Baby, I come stumbling in With my head in a haze Just to watch you Shave Something about you working up a lather In nothing more than a smile and a towel It ain’t the steam that’s fogging up the mirror It’s safe to say I’m wide awake now You do it slow and easy Like you’re trying to please me It’s so hard to behave When I watch you Shave When that five o’clock shadow moves across your chin I say, hot damn, baby, time to do it again I’m bubbling like the soap on your beautiful face Shame to let a moment like this go to waste Then there’s no resistin I got to get to kissin’ What a way to start the day, yeah, I love to watch you Shave I love to watch you Shave Til it all turns gray I’m gonna watch you Shave

Country is the State I’m In When I’m tired of the city and always feeling gritty, I need a little change of pace I close my eyes, imagine prairie skies And soon I’m in a different place Instead of concrete, there’s miles of mesquite And cactus stretchin’ arms up high And I feel so happy that I want to grin Country is the State I’m In Country is the State I’m In It’s a paradise that I’m imaginin’ If you see me smilin with a big ole grin Country Is the State I’m In When my head hits the pillow, I dream of Amarillo And so begins my fantasy Where my heap of junk becomes a shiny red truck Cruisin into Abilene These high heeled shoes turn into steel-toed boots Two-steppin in a country line While a cowboy serenades me on his mandolin Country is the State I’m In Country is the State I’m In It’s a paradise that I’m imaginin’ Where my cowboy boots fit like a second skin Country Is the State I’m In I don’t need meditation just some imagination To take me where I want to go My mind heads west and then the fun begins Country is the State I’m In Country is the State I’m In It’s a paradise that I’m imaginin’ It’s as close to heaven as I’ve ever been Country Is the State I’m In

Handle With Care Be kind when you kiss me Or hold me real close The gentler the touch Brings the blush to the rose Cradle my heart And I’ll always be there Hold me. Unfold me Handle with care I’ve danced close to love My heels floating on hope I’ve dangled from dreams While despair held the rope My soul’s been torn beyond repair Heal me. Reveal me Handle with Care Just a little bit of tenderness is my request when I let you in Let the world unwind We’ve got the time to make the night wash away the past cause we were meant to last Moondust finds us We stand face to face You lean in to kiss me A moment of grace Time holds it’s breath It’s feels just like a prayer Save me. I’m waiting Hold me Unfold me Heal me Reveal Me Handle with Care
