about

Track Name: All Her Little Secrets
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.

Track Name: Girl, You've Got Me
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.

Track Name: I Won't Be Alone
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.

Track Name: Valerie
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.

Track Name: Drifting Through a Dream
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

Track Name: The Hurting Kind
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.

Track Name: All I Wanted
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
