She tells me all her little secrets The ones she doesn’t share with anyone else. She’s got a book upon her shelf That only I get to read. She wakes up early in the morning. She’s quiet as she slips from bed. She’s a cooking on the fire And dreams are dancing in my head. Chorus She tells me all her little secrets. She tells me all her little secrets. She tells me all her little secrets. I know. She gets restless with the seasons. After all, she was raised up on the road. And there’s no feeling quite so pleasin’ As going some place you never know’d. We get to singing in the evening. Oh, her voice is a high and mellow breeze. And she sways just like a willow Sways just like a willow tree. Chorus She tells me all her little secrets. She tells me all her little secrets. She tells me all her little secrets. I know.

I’m head over heels and I hate how it feels. I don’t want this. I lay here at night, without any lights, thinking of you. I’m here in between a curse and a dream. And I don’t know where it’ll go. I try to breathe slow, but my heart’s thumpin’ so. Damn girl, you’ve got me. Chorus You came along when nothing was wrong. I was just fine, but now I’m out of my mind. The look in your eye, the swish in your walk, girl, you’ve move me. The way that you smile, your sweet baby talk cuts right through me. But it’s so hard to say if you’re coming my way. It changes day by day. I try to breathe slow, but my heart’s thumpin’ so. Damn girl, you’ve got me. Chorus You came along when nothing was wrong. I was just fine, but now I’m out of my mind. Ah, you’ve got me. Ah, you’ve got me. Ah, you’ve got me. Ah, you’ve got me. Copyright 2010 by Eric Beverly

Baby, don’t misunderstand me. It’s not that I don’t dig you. I do. But, I’m looking for someone to expand me. Not to break me down and leave a me blue. Baby, you’ve got to stop your games. Or you’ll lose the best man around town. I can see the way you treat me, There’s no point in sticking around. Chorus If you wanna play your games You’ll have no one else to blame When you call me on the phone ‘Cause I won’t be alone. Baby, don’t misrepresent me When you’re talking to your good time friends I’m not the one who’s done what you’ve done And that’s no way to make amends Baby, you’ve got to stop your games. Or you’ll lose the best man around town. I can see the way you treat me, There’s no point in sticking around. Chorus If you wanna play your games You’ll have no one else to blame When you call me on the phone ‘Cause I won’t be alone. Bridge Remember when you met me? You promised never to upset me. How was I to know You’re a really bad liar? Guitar solo Chorus If you wanna play your games You’ll have no one else to blame When you call me on the phone ‘Cause I won’t be alone.

First laid eyes on Valerie At the grocery store. She was a little cold, Kept her distance. Valerie I couldn’t wait to see her again So I followed her home. But I couldn’t stay We weren’t alone. Valerie Chorus Valerie, you breathe and break a heart. Valerie, I’ve known you from the start. Valerie, you breathe and break a heart. Valerie, be careful in the dark. I kept in touch And the feelings grew stronger. I knew I couldn’t stand by And wait much longer. Till we were side by side Sweet Valerie and I I’d know no peace, get no sleep Just keep a watchful eye On my… Chorus Valerie, you breathe and break a heart. Valerie, I’ve known you from the start. Valerie, you breathe and break my heart. Valerie, be careful in the dark. Guitar solo Chorus Valerie, you breathe and break my heart. Valerie, I’ve loved you from the start. Valerie, you breathe and break my heart. Valerie, be careful in the dark. Bridge Now, I’m not a jealous guy. But I can’t let this slip by me. And I could break right down and cry. But I’d rather settle the score Even if you’re not around anymore Sweet Valerie Valerie Valerie Oh, oh, oh, oh Valerie. Copyright 2010 by Eric Beverly

After all these years You’d think that you would know someone. Ah, but then these tears Offer up a new lesson. You thought you had it made Laying side by side in bed You think of all the sweet loving you’ve made So bitter now that it’s really dead. Chorus I’m drifting through a dream Holding back a scream Nothing seems to be what it was Out off the highway Lying in a motel bed I’m burning a candle Trying to get this darkness out of my head But it’s no use And nothing now will change the past I wish that we had known how How to make it last Chorus I’m drifting through a dream Holding back a scream Nothing seems to be what it was Slide guitar solo If I could just forget There’d be nothing to regret. And if I could believe That there’s someone else out there for me Maybe I could sleep A dreamless sleep and wake up with a smile And I could be at peace Not feel so desperate and wild. Chorus I’m drifting through a dream Holding back a scream Nothing seems to be what it was Copyright 2010 by Eric Beverly

I’ve been awake all night Just trying to get it right For you, for you. When I call you at home Say that you’ll be alone and blue. Chorus I’m not saying I was right. You know how hard I’m tryin’. You know I treated you mean When I said those things last night. I was having my doubts Thought you were stepping out on me. Chorus I’m not saying I was right. You know how hard I’m tryin’. I hope you’ll keep it in mind. Don’t be the hurting kind. Bridge Will you be there when I call you now? Or are you dancin’, baby, out on the town? Are you thinking of us deep in your mind? Or are you dancin’, baby, with some other guy? Well, I hope I was wrong And your love is strong and true. When I call you at home Say that you’ll be alone and blue. Chorus I’m not saying I was right. You know how hard I’m tryin’. I hope you’ll keep it in mind. Don’t be the hurting kind. Don’t be the hurting kind. Don’t ya be the hurting kind. Copyright 2010 by Eric Beverly

Someone else broke my heart I needed you to learn the part You took the role and played the tart It’s all I wanted I was cold and steadily cruel You came ‘round like going to school I gave you lessons and broke the rules It’s all I wanted Chorus It’s all I wanted, all I wanted You opened up, I shut it down I went out scamming on the town That night you found me half up her gown It’s all I wanted I saw the pain in your eyes It made it easy to despise / you For staying with such a guy It’s all I wanted Chorus It’s all I wanted, all I wanted Bridge I tired of you and kissed you off I thought about you, but not a lot Till late last Friday I heard you laugh It’s all I wanted. It’s all I wanted. It’s all I wanted. We tried again, this time much worse All the patterns we had rehearsed But soon I found the roles reversed It’s all I wanted Chorus It’s all I wanted, all I wanted Copyright 2010 by Eric Beverly
