THIS TIME

Let me get it this time
I won’t fool around
Let me get it this time, lord
I won’t let you down

I know you’ve seen me trying
And only causing pain
But I’ve got one more in me, lord
To try and break the chain

Give me one last chance to turn this thing around
It ain’t gonna be
Like the last time

Or the time before that
I’ll be a good man
Can you picture that?

Let me get it this time
I don’t need a plan
Let me get it this time, lord
Now I understand

I’ve been out there running
Trying to play the game
Every time I think I get it, lord
Things just stay the same

But now I’ve got my feet back on the ground
It ain’t gonna be

Like the last time
Or the time before that
I’ll be a good man
Can you picture that?

SHE’S A WINNER

Now I wouldn’t write a song about you
If I didn’t think you were sweet
And I must have done something to please the lord
‘Cause he introduced you to me

When we met you had another man
But now I’ve got you in my hands
Now I’m telling all my friends about you, baby
I say catch her while you can

Pony up cause she’s a winner
And I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
Pony up cause she’s a winner
And I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride

Now that I’ve got my shit together
I gotta think up a plan
I’m gonna need some company
As I travel all across the land

If someday I meet my demise
Just wipe the tears back from your eyes
You know I’d never talk bad about you, baby
Cause that would just be lies

Pony up cause she’s a winner
And I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride

Pony up cause she’s a winner
And I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride

HOW HAVE I LIVED

Wolf in the night on a long night out
And you warned me about them before
Gave you a kiss before I walked out
And I told you, “Please lock the door”

How have I lived my life this long
Without you getting through to me?
How have I lived my life this long
Without you getting through to me?
‘Cause I’ll keep getting high if it’s up to me

Was out with a friend he said don’t look now
When I saw her laying next to you
Was done for the night but you grabbed my arm
And you stoned me until my face was blue

I asked you if anything gets better
You said it’s up to me
But that’s just not true

‘Cause when it’s up to me, I always pay the price
And when I listen to him
Everything seems to turn out nice

How have I lived my life this long
Without you getting through to me?
How have I lived my life this long
Without you getting through to me?

THESE ARE THE DAYS

These are the days
When your good graces have left and gone
You’re left counting the ways
That I’ve done you wrong

They’re gonna hang me high
For my crimes
I’ve got nothing to lose now
But these tears I’m crying

It’s high time that I paid the price
So that the next time maybe I’ll think twice
Does it matter to you, girl
To know that I’m in misery?

These are the days
When your good graces have left and gone
You’re left counting the ways
That I’ve done you wrong

It’s five o’clock in the morning
And I’m not home
I’m surrounded by people
But I’m really alone

I know I’m keeping you waiting, girl
But I don’t care
I’d come running to you
If I weren’t tied to this chair

I’m so tired of hiding, baby
And getting wrapped up in lies

These are the days
When your good graces have left and gone
You’re left counting the ways
That I’ve done you wrong

CHANGES, PTS. 1 & 2

Changes, running through my life
And you get farther, and farther behind me
But I’m not answering
For anything I did anymore

Changes, running through my life
And it gets harder and harder to find me
But I’m not living
The way I did anymore

There’s a lot of people round and they’re saying
That there’s something not right with me
Just sitting here hoping and praying
That you’ll be the one to see

Taken a wrong turn once or twice
And I’m not really sure how to live my life
I’ll just take it slow, I’ll just take it slow

Changes, running through my life
And you get smaller and smaller inside me
And I’m not living
The way I did anymore

There’s a lot of people round and they’re saying
That there’s something not right with me
Just sitting here hoping and praying
I’ll just take it slow

There’s a lot of people round and they’re saying
That there’s something not right with me
Just sitting here hoping and praying
And it gets harder

There’s a lot of people round and they’re saying
That there’s something not right with me
Just sitting here hoping and praying
I’ll just take it slow and it gets harder

LAUREN

Well we’ve loved and we’ve lost
And at such a cost
And it seems you made a fool of me
But that’s the coin I tossed
You've got me wrapped around your finger

I’m at your beck and call
I’m obliged to let you use me
But you don’t care at all

You’re so pretty
You’re like a vision oh my lord
And you don’t hide it
Even though you’re modest with your words

And now I’m crying
‘Cause I’m the fool who chased you here
And If I said I loved you, you wouldn’t even hear
And If I died right now you wouldn’t even shed a tear

Well I chased you down to San Antone
But you weren’t at home
Your mama had enough of you
So she sent you off alone

Up in Austin where I found you
Living in your car
Where’s your boyfriend when you need him
Did he travel far?

Whisper in my ear your excited invitations
About all the fun you’re having and wishing I was here
Lead me down the path of misguided expectations
I thought I’d get to have you but now I’m flying home alone

Oh, what a fool you made me

You’re so pretty
You’re like a vision oh my lord
And you don’t hide it
Even though you’re modest with your words

And now I’m crying
‘Cause I’m the fool who chased you here
And If I said I loved you you wouldn’t even hear
And If I died right now you wouldn’t even shed a tear

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOUR LOVE

I asked my neighbor about you, baby
I asked him if your love could save me
He said listen to me, brother, I can’t tell you
How to do what’s right

And I don’t want you to hear me singing
Cause then you’ll know just what I’m thinking
God forgive me and remove me from the ashes
Of the life I lived before

I don’t love you ‘cause I want to
I don’t love you ‘cause I have to
I love you ‘cause I need to
I’m lucky that I have you
I love you ‘cause I need you
And I couldn’t live without your love

Now that you have me while you need me
Hurry up because I’m leaving
Lock me up but don’t forget me ‘cause I’m yours
As long as I’m here

I keep asking you for answers
But I don’t like, I don’t like the things I’m hearing
Help me please get some sleep tonight

Don’t read too closely to what I’m saying
I can’t be trusted unless I’m praying
Lord forgive me for the things that I’ve done and the things I’ve yet to do

I don’t love you cause I want to
I don’t love you cause I have to
I love you cause I need to
I’m lucky that I have you
I love you cause I need you
And I couldn’t live without your love

PUT IT IN HIS HANDS

Hey put it in his hands
Who you gonna trust now?
Hey put it in his hands

Now ain’t that strange to you
To listen to your God
It seems like yesterday
That I was lost

And what is happiness
Is to just stop trying
And once you give it up
You’ll have peace of mind
