    I should have known you were going to be too hard to hold When I saw you drinking doubles in an empty bar You were staring at the bottom of your glass like it broke your soul So I knew buying you another wouldn’t get me far When I sat down you didn’t say a word I ordered something strong Thinking “this one’s gonna hurt” This ain’t going down smooth Its always harder than I think and it burns hot A bit too much too soon We’re gonna find out just how tough I’m not Don’t waste my time with white wine, it’s not that kinda buzz And beer ain’t get me numb enough God help me this is gonna be A whiskey kind of love Every day and night after that one was just a blur (alternate lyric: Left me in a daze) Flying high in a love that felt better than it should And I knew I was digging a hole that would be my grave But I was in too deep to climb out even if I could When you packed your things you didn’t say a word I poured me something strong, cause this was gonna hurt This ain’t going down smooth Its always harder than I think and it burns hot A bit too much too soon We’re gonna find out just how tough I’m not My buddies say i’m better off, but the truth is i’m not sure Why I’m missing you or missing what it was God help me this was gonna be God help me, this was always gonna be God help me and set me free from A whiskey kind of love A whiskey kind of love

    TURN AROUND

                                                         
                                                            

    TURN AROUND ©2016 Cari Lynn York / Don Goodman (360) 471-7220 V1 When this old world we're living on journeys around the sun, part of us is left behind; part has just begun. No one day we ever live determines who we'll be. Yesterday I barely knew you; tomorrow you may not know me. Ch Turn around and we were strangers; turn around and we were friends; turn around and now we're lovers turning around again. V2 The youthful pray the time will pass; the old beg it to stay. Moments last a lifetime; years just slip away. You and I will live and die, and all we'll really leave fading footprints in the sand; precious memories. Ch Turn around and we were strangers; turn around and we were friends; turn around and now we're lovers turning around again. Br I've heard each star in heaven is a heart that's come and gone. And I pray someday we'll be the stars lovers wish upon. Ch Turn around and they'll be strangers; turn around and they'll be friends; turn around and they'll be lovers turning around again.

    The Other Side Of Midnight Been but a little while baby since you've been gone Here in the early hours before darkness touches dawn I found the brightest star and made a wish That I don't spend another lonely night like this Thinking bout your smile your laugh your touch your kiss I miss (CHORUS) Your yellow sun dress hair all in a mess but the prettiest girl I'd see As you walked passed some guys you'd catch their eyes yet you were going home with me But that was then and here I am all alone tonight Things don't look the same when there's little light On the other side of midnight Seems I’m all caught up in a cruel twist of fate I want to call you up in many ways it's much too late I'm lying here trying to get some sleep It's tough with a trace of your perfume still on my sheet And visions playing in my head of you stuck on repeat (CHORUS) (CHORUS) Copyright nickastro@yahoo.com (856) 206 7191

    So soft you touch, a breath, a whisper that calms the waves and soothes the storm In your light, the darkness withers the healing sun grows bright and warm And all that rages in me subsides as a heart of stone and ashes comes to life I'm alive when I am in your arms far away from all that weighs me down When you smile, I have everything my heart begins to sing When I am in your arms Like summer rain, gently dancing comes to kiss the thirsty ground When my soul is dry and empty your tender love comes falling down I'm alive when I am in your arms far away from all that weighs me down When you smile, I have everything my heart begins to sing When I am in your arms In your arms, I am stronger In your arms, I am free I'm alive when I am in your arms far away from all that weighs me down When you smile, I have everything my heart begins to sing When I am in your arms When I am in your arms

    Scared Of Heights ©…..Elias James Edlund, Jeff Johnson, Lucy LeBlanc V1 I used to be fearless I never really got past you and I We used to be reckless Flyin in our atmosphere each night Pre It's easy to look down now When you know what's at the bottom It’s harder to hold on now when the ground you're on starts falling CH Tonight I’m hanging on the edge Of your goodbye to fall in love again Got me terrified, terrified to fall or fly, I guess that’s why I'm scared of heights Summer was endless Waiting to tear down all these walls You left me breathless I guess I'm only human after all Chorus

    drawn to the neon lights V1 In the neon bar light, about half past twilight She flutters in and settles down Along the bar he orders her a drink he says it doesn't mean a damn thing Oh, he Just wonders could he keep her Keep her company Chorus And, Oh, the night can get so lonely And they're Back again If only for a little while When On and on, the silent night goes on From the edge of dusk to dawn They're drawn Drawn to the neon lights Verse 2 She said when her man left her maybe God blessed her The way he'd been treating her It had to end And Now she wants to travel Head west and unravel then lay beneath the redwoods until she mends Chorus Bridge across the world they live their lives Do their best to feel alright But sometimes a place alone don't feel enough like home Final Chorus
