Songs From My Favorite Album

Captivated

Your eyes, your eyes
Look like an angel’s and comfort me
Your love, your love
Runs like a river and covers me
Underneath my pride is where I hide
Every day is a circus ride
You’re the only one that sees me for me
Still, you always forgive for free

Captivated, captivated
Nothing else matters to me
Captivated, captivated
By your eyes, all I can see
Are the colors of love in the skies of eternity
You captivate me

Your heart, your heart
Beats with compassion and sustains me
Your touch, your touch
Must be from Heaven I can’t get enough
It’s hard to express the way I feel
But trust me, my love is real
Throw me in the fire I’ll burn for you
Just to prove my love is true

Captivated, captivated
Nothing else matters to me
Captivated, captivated
By your eyes, all I can see
Are the colors of love in the skies of eternity
You captivate me

Where would I be without you
Who would I be without you

Every day with you I’m in a dream
Joy flows through my bloodstream
I need you like the air that I breathe
Please stay here and never leave

Come Home Soon

Phone calls from Boston
Can’t replace touching your skin
I need a slow dance
Beneath the silver hanging moon
I need it soon

Tell me why I can’t escape your eyes
Tell me why my pride falls at your side
I need, I need, I need, I need, I need you
Photographs or memory won’t do
I need you

Postcards from New York City
Can’t satisfy me
I need a long walk
Beneath the silent midnight clouds
I need it now

Tell me why I can’t escape your eyes
Tell me why my pride falls at your side
I need, I need, I need, I need, I need you
Photographs or memory won’t do
I need you

Before the sun goes down
Before the time runs out
Let me say I love you

Tell me why I can’t escape your eyes
Tell me why my pride falls at your side
I need, I need, I need, I need, I need you
Photographs or memory won’t do
I need you

Pictures from Vegas
Can’t substitute for a kiss
I need a warm love
That I can feel not just dream of
So come home soon

Cowboys Forever

The prairie wind touches our skin
Another maverick morning begins
Wild west eyes rise before the sun
We are young guns on the run

Hang’em high, pistols to the sky
We ride, we ride, ‘cross the line

It’s in our veins
The feel of the reins
.45’s, chaps, bandannas and spurs
We are cowboys forever

Stay here today, gone tomorrow
The open range is our home
All that we own lives inside our soul
We are cowboy to the bone

Hang’em high, pistols to the sky
We ride, we ride, ‘cross the line

It’s in our veins
The feel of the reins
.45’s, chaps, bandannas and spurs
We are cowboys forever

Riding Bullet across the plains
To avenge our kin’s blood and name
In bedlam we will rise and stand
With strength and honor to defend our land

Hang’em high, pistols to the sky
We ride, we ride, ‘cross the line

It’s in our veins
The feel of the reins
.45’s, chaps, bandannas and spurs
We are cowboys forever

We are, we are
Cowboys forever

Don’t Look Back

Don’t look back from where you’ve come
You can’t erase the things you’ve done
Yesterday’s gone – time to move on
If you live life in reverse, it will get worse

As regret lingers and slowly attacks
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back
As failure creeps and leaks through the cracks
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back
When life blind-sides you and knocks you off track
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back

Don’t look back at what could have been
Who’s to say what should have been
Yesterday’s gone – time to move on
If you live life in reverse, it will get worse

As sorrow grows a famine and gold turns to black
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back
As heartache wakes and stabs you in the back
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back
When the world tries to tell you all that you lack
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back

The ghosts of memories cry
Echoes through the thoughts in our minds
The phantom of the past
Hovers in the ocean of contrast
You can’t get anywhere
If you live life looking through a mirror

Don’t look back from where you’ve come
You can’t erase the things you’ve done
Yesterday’s gone – time to move on
If you live life in reverse, it will get worse

Live Your Dreams

Something in the air strikes and ignites
Exploding from a dream into life
Let the moment rain down from the sky
Feel the feeling swell and start to rise

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it now?

With every breath you breathe, live your dreams
In every sight you see, live your dreams
Every chance you take, every move you make
Live your dreams awake

The electric sky bursts through the heights
Painting memories with diamond lights
Time hangs in the wind as fate begins
To sweep across your skin once again

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it now?

With every breath you breathe, live your dreams
In every sight you see, live your dreams
Every chance you take, every move you make
Live your dreams awake

Find a way to find a way
To live your dreams awake

Something in the air strikes and ignites

Morning In May

Memory never sleeps she seeks
The perfect time to rewind
The movie inside your mind that plays
Like it was yesterday
Close your eyes just close your eyes
Drift off with me to that place in time

That morning in May
We danced in a field of roses
As time began to fade
That morning in May
We walked in an amber gold mist
Under a violet haze
That morning in May will always remain
The best day of my life

Photographs always frame the past
Into ghosts that remind
Like the time my pride went blind
As my soul climbed into your eyes
Close your eyes just close your eyes
Drift off with me to that place in time

That morning in May
We danced in a field of roses
As time began to fade
That morning in May
We walked in an amber gold mist
Under a violet haze
That morning in May will always remain
The best day of my life

As fast as the wind can blow
The heart feels where the mind goes
As long as the river flows
Memories will lead to home
Take me home

That morning in May will always remain
The best day of my life

No Words Can Speak

When was the last time you forgot about time
And could not remember the troubles on your mind
And then your soul seemed to stand still
Floating like a shadow in a field
This is the way that you make me feel

No words can speak what I want to say
No heart can feel the way I feel today
No eyes can see color in this way
With you, I will remain
In this moment and never fade away

When was the last time you watched the sun rising
And saw a halo glow that shined like a diamond ring
Just as your bones got the chills
And your heart dropped and rolled down a hill
This is the way that you make me feel

No words can speak what I want to say
No heart can feel the way I feel today
No eyes can see color in this way
With you, I will remain
In this moment and never fade away

One Year

Another walk along the hills of Gardendale
I am lost in the silence and the colors in the air
Sometimes I feel like I have disappeared
Into the mesmerizing realm of the setting sun’s glare

It’s been one year since I left Stillwater
It’s been one year since I last called and talked to her
It’s been one year of not knowing where to go
But through it all, I’ve learned how to grow

My memories are hazy like a ghost in the wind
I’ve been all the way around the sun, another cycle ends
Sometimes I feel like I am in a dream
And can’t decipher fake from real – what does that mean

It’s been one year since my mind has been at peace
It’s been one year since I have felt any relief
It’s been one year of constant longing
But through it all, I have become stronger

As broken as I’ve been
With all the scars on my skin
I would do it all over again
This is only the beginning

It’s been one year since I came to Nashville
It’s been one year since I told anyone how I feel
It’s been one year of wanting to move along
But through it all, I’ve found where I belong

Phoenix

Look at me like you look at no other
Hold me like you’ll never hold another
I want to feel your heart as it beats
I want to hear your soul as it speaks
Tell me how does it feel
To hold the fate of another’s dream
Only you can make the dream come true

Let’s forget the world and lose our sense of time
Let’s hold on to each other and never say goodbye
Can we stay here forever under the golden sky,
And never say goodbye

Look at me like you look at no other
Kiss me like you’ll never kiss another
I want to be the one that you need
I want to give you everything
Tell me how does it feel
To hold the fate of another’s dream
Only you can make the dream come true

Let’s forget the world and lose our sense of time
Let’s hold on to each other and never say goodbye
Can we stay here forever under the golden sky,
And never say goodbye

I cannot explain the way that I feel inside
All I know is that I need you – no longer can that hide
Tonight I’m praying that our souls will collide,
And never say goodbye

Only you can make the dream come true

Someday, Someday

Reminded by the sign of the church bell’s chime
Everything has its place everything has its time
So why’s it so hard for me to find mine
I’m a sinking ship with no rescue line

Nowhere to go and nothing to lose
To give up or fight, it’s my choice to choose
When my soul’s dry that’s when my spirit moves
I’m not ready to die, that what I’m here to prove

Some day, some day, some day, some day
I will not be a rolling stone
Some day, some day, some day, some day
I will not be okay all alone
Some day, some day, some day
I will find myself a home

All that I see is my blood on the ground
I’ve been bent all around, but I’m not broken down
If I’m still breathing, I can still hear the sound
That will save me and change my lost soul to found

Some day, some day, some day, some day
I will not be a rolling stone
Some day, some day, some day, some day
I will not be okay all alone
Some day, some day, some day
I will find myself a home

I can hear a train in the distance bringing rain
I pray that the water can wash away my pain
I’m not sure what I want, but I don’t want to be the same
I’m just a sinner desperately seeking change
