"Get Off On The Pain" (2010)

Get Off On The Pain lyrics - gary allan

I don't know why I love women
That love to do me wrong
Don't know why my life sounds like
A heartbroke country song
I ain't really happy
Unless the sky starts driving rain
Maybe I just get off on the pain

My whole life I been picking fights
There ain't no way to win
Got a hundred scars I should have run away
Now tattooed on my skin
There's a side of me that just won't stop
Dancin' in the flame
Maybe I just get off on the pain

Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

Wake up every morning, a thousand miles from home
Praying for forgiveness
For this aching in my bones
It would be so easy
To find a better way
Oh but I know I'll never change

Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
I know I'm the only one to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain
Get off on the pain

I Think I've Had Enough lyrics - gary allan

All the days that ended well into tomorrow
All the times I couldn't lay it on the line
This old conscience that I could never follow
I hate to say it but I wish it wasn't mine

All the broken hearts that didn't see it comin'
All the tears that should have never hit the floor
All the lookin' back but mainly all the runnin'
All these reasons I'm standing at your door

I think I've had enough
This time I'm givin' in
Without you it's too rough
So I'm standing here again
I finally realize
It's love that never dies
And I'm really not that tough
No I'm really not that tough
I think I've had enough

Life is gonna be a circus
Rain or shine
Rides did always make me nervous
So if I'm gonna ride the Ferris wheel I'll need your hand in mine

I've think I've had enough
This time I'm giving in
Without you it's too rough
So I'm crawling back again
I've finally realize
It's love that never dies
And I'm really not that tough
No I'm really not that tough
I think I've had enough
I'm really not that tough
I think I've had enough
Think I've had enough

Today lyrics - gary allan

Today he told he that he loved her
Put a ring around her finger
And promised her forever, together

Today, she smiled for all the pictures
And he was right there with her
Making all the memories without me

And it hurts to say this out loud
Looks like she's really gone now

Today is the happiest day of her life
I should be happy for her today
So tell me why are these tears in my eyes?
I know I should be happy for her

But I've lost everything
I've lost everything I've ever wanted today

Today I thought about the moment
I could have said I loved her
And promised her forever, together

Today, today it really hit me
That she don't really miss me
She's found a new beginning

And I'm wishing
I had one more chance
God knows it's too late for that

Today is the happiest day of her life
I should be happy for her today
So tell me why are these tears in my eyes?
I know I should be happy for her

But I've lost everything
I've lost everything I've ever wanted today

Today is the happiest day of her life
I should be happy for her
But I've lost everything
I've lost everything I've ever wanted

Today he told he that he loved her
Put a ring around her finger

That Ain't Gonna Fly lyrics - gary allan

Well I'm gonna show her
That I can forget her
That little girls lovin'
Meant nothin' to me

If you go lookin' at the bottom
of a whiskey bottle, that's where I'll be
Even though, I already know

That ain't gonna fly, that ain't gonna fly
No it didn't work then, and it dont work now
But do or die, I'm gonna try
To enjoy the ride, all the way down

West Coast cutie, comin on to me
Mama tried to warn ya California blonde
Built like a 10, young like a 20
Party til the money is gone

It'll be fun, but in the long run
That ain't gonna fly, that ain't gonna fly
No it didn't work then, and it dont work now
But do or die, I'm gonna try
To enjoy the ride, all the way down

Kiss Me When I'm Down lyrics - gary allan

It's been a year since last weekend when you swung by with an old friend
Carried out our future box by box
Stack of mail a tube of toothpaste
An empty zeppelin three cd case
Still a few things here that you forgot
They're just a bad excuse
Just something I can use
To call you

Come on over
Drink my wine
Waste my candles
Waste my time
Tell me lies I won't believe
Just don't wake me when you leave
Come on over
Kick me to the ground
Kiss me when I'm down

The bar you're in sounds like it's crowded
People laughin' people shouting
Where you gonna go at closing time
Just pay your tab
And I'll pay your cab
If you want to

Come on over
Drink my wine
Waste my candles
Waste my time
Tell me lies I won't believe
Just don't wake me when you leave
Come on over
Kick me to the ground
Kiss me when I'm down

Just an hour or two
Is better than none of you
I miss you

Come on over
Drink my wine
Waste my candles
Waste my time
Tell me lies I won't believe
Just don't wake me when you leave
Come on over
Kick me to the ground
Kiss me when I'm down
Kiss me when I'm down

We Fly By Night lyrics - gary allan

Wake up Monday morning lookin' at another 50 hour week
Hit the ground, black coffee, runnin' on 2 hours of sleep
Damned old truck won't start and I've got some place to be by eight
You spin around in circles, cookin' breakfast, runnin' late too
You're stressed out, stretched thin, sometimes it's just like a zoo
We come home tired and weary after making it through on more day.

[Chorus]
And we fly by night
Wrapped around each other 'neath the pale moonlight
Everything in the great big world feels right
Baby you and I, we fly by night

Well, traffic's backed up bumper to bumper for 15 miles
Call you on the phone said "Hang on babe, it's gonna be a while"
You say, "Hurry home lover, I'm wearing nothing but a smile for you."
Already got my coat off as I pull into the drive
Sometimes I think I must be the luckiest man alive
When you pull me down on the couch and slowly slide off my boots.

[Repeat Chorus]

No, I wouldn't care if the sun never shined again, again..

[Repeat Chorus]

Baby you and I, we fly by night
Whooooooo

When You Give Yourself Away lyrics - gary allan

When you give yourself away
Love becomes somethin' that you do
Not just somethin' that you say
Ain't it funny how a smile
Makes the world a better place
When you give yourself away

When you open up your heart
You never know how it's gonna end
And that's the scary part
Walls are gonna tumble on down
Dam's gonna break
When you give yourself away

And reaching out for someone
Well, is all that we can do
You reach out for me babe
I'll reach out for you

When you look up to the sky
Feel like ya just dont belong
And wishin' you could fly
You find out you're not alone
And really all the same
When you give yourself away
When you give yourself away

Give yourself away
Never know how it's gonna end
That's the scary part
You've go to give yourself away

Along The Way lyrics - gary allan

Scarecrows and devils are the only thing out this way
What that says about me, it's probably true
I've been carrying all these words around
For too long and now it's time to lay them down
I'm here for forgiveness I need it from you

The road was long and it took so much time
But I learned a lot from my mistakes
I made some wrong turns that I'm not proud of
They made me who I am today
I just got a little lost along the way

I won't blame you if you turn around and slam the door
I understand if you don't want to hear me again
I'm not here to fight, I came to you tonight
To say I'm sorry and to try to make it right
I'm only finding my way back from where I've been, don't know where I've been

The road was long and it took so much time
But I've learned a lot from my mistakes
I made some wrong turns that I'm not proud of
They made me who I am today
I just got a little lost along the way

The road was long and took so much time
But I learned a lot from my mistakes
I made some wrong turns that I'm not proud of
Made me who I am today
I just got a little lost
Just been a little lost
I just got a little lost along the way

Scarecrows and devils are the only thing out this way
What that says about me, it's probably true

She Gets Me lyrics - gary allan

This life I choose
Its always been hard
Lots of tattoos and scars
and broken hearts
And a woman's love, aint been hard for me to find,
But keepin' one's tough, when your gone all the time.
I aint no easy man to understand,
Thank God she can;

And she gets me,
Yeah she gets me,
And she takes me just the way the good Lord made me,
All the faults that I can't hide,
This wild and crazy rock and roll life,
She knows won't ever set me free,
Well, she's the only woman I need,
Yeah she gets me [x2]

I aint no nine to five
I aint no forty hour week
I know Im always chasing rainbows that she can't see
I know Im hard to love, and thats why I pray,
That God will give her patients and the strength to stay,
Cause I know I aint no easy man to understand,
Thank God she can;

And she gets me,
Yeah she gets me,
And she takes me just the way the good Lord made me,
All the faults that I can't hide,
This wild and crazy rock and roll life,
She knows won't ever set me free,
Well, she's the only woman I need,
Yeah she gets me [x2]

All the faults that I can't hide,
This wild and crazy rock and roll life,
She know's wont ever sets me free,
Yeah she's the only woman I need,
Yeah she gets me [x2]

No Regrets lyrics - gary allan

She's been gone about three years
It's been a long road and a million tears
I'm movin slow but I'm movin on
The sweetest memories still remain
The laughter we had and the love that we made
Every night I go to bed alone

With no regrets
A piece of mind
Lived so much time in so little time
I'm so glad when she was here
She was mine
From the day we met
To the night she left
I loved her, no regrets

Well time and fate can be controlled
You play the hand that you're dealt
And the dice that you rolled
And who might of questioned God anyway
Well these days when I look back
I know I'm blessed to be loved like that
I still miss her everyday

With no regrets
A piece of mind
Lived so much time in so little time
I'm so glad when she was here she was mine
From the day we met
To the night she left
I loved her, no regrets

From the day we met
To the night she left
I loved her, no regrets

No regrets
I loved her
With no regrets

"Living Hard" (2007)

Watching Airplanes lyrics - gary allan

Sittin Out here on the hood of this truck looking up
At a caramel colored sunset sky
Checkin my watch doin the math in my head
Counting back words to when you said goodbye
Well those runway lights are gettin brighter

Im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin to figure out which one you might be on
And why you dont love me anymore
Right now im sittin' out here watching airplanes

I would've lied could've cried should've tried harder
Done anything to make you stay
I wonder what you'd do if you looked out your window
Saw me runnin down the runway just like i was crazy
That fence is too high so am i

So I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore
By now i know you're thirty thousand feet above me
But a million miles away, a million miles away
By now i know i outta act like you don't love me

But im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore

Yeah im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Go by, by, by
Im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Baby bye, bye, bye

We Touched The Sun lyrics - gary allan

We touched the sun
We held the stars
We fell in love with open hearts
We chased our dreams
That went beyond
We did it all
We thouched the sun

When I look back Im glad we found each other
With no regrets along the way
And what was like and endless summer
Its just yesterday

And even if its not forever
We were meant to be together
Even if its only for a while

We touched the sun
We held the stars
We fell in love with open hearts
We chased our dreams
That went beyond
We did it all
We thouched the sun

We chased our dreams
That went beyond
We did it all
We thouched the sun

She's So California lyrics - gary allan

She's a warm summer breeze with bleach blonde hair
Like a fine red wine she can take you there
She's a walk in the sand at sunset
She's the top pulled down on the 405
She'll take you higher than Humbolt sky
She's an earthquake
And you're the fault line
So, when you feel the ground, start movin' around
Hold on tight you're in for a ride

[Chorus:]
'Cause she's so California
She's a wild fire out of control, headed for ya
So, when you get burned, don't say I didn't warn ya
'Cause she's so California

She's a black Mercedes on Laurel and Vine
She's a low cut dress
She's a Hollywood sign
She's a dead head on a Friday night
Oh, and she's so cool, breaking all the rules
Rising star, she'll break your heart

[Repeat Chorus]

She's so California

Like It's A Bad Thing lyrics - gary allan

They say, I drive a little fast
Say, I like to push the limit
Everyday I'm living like it was my last
They say, Im proud of my scars
Each one tells a story
Got guts and glory down to an art
Say, I know whats its like
To see life pass right before my eyes
Like it's a bad thing.

I dont know about you but I was put here to live and love
So, what if I dont do it like everybody else does
I'm out on the edge, I'm too willing to risk
Every bone, every breath, they say, all I am is a crazy dream
Like it's a bad thing.

So, my heart's been broke
So, I keep on falling
Im nothing but all in when I let go
I wear it on my sleeve
Yeah, they call me a fool cause I still believe
Like it's a bad thing.

I dont know about you but I was put here to live and love
So, what if I dont do it like everybody else does
I'm out on the edge, I'm too willing to risk
Every bone, every breath, they say, all I am is a crazy dream
Like it's a bad thing.
I
Dont know about you but I was put here to live and love
So, what if I dont do it like everybody else does
I'm out on the edge, I'm too willing to risk
Every bone, every breath, they say, all I am is a crazy dream
Like it's a bad thing.

Like it's a bad thing

Learning How To Bend lyrics - gary allan

I'm still learning how to pray
Trying hard not to stray
Try to see things your way
I'm still learning how to pray
I'm still learning how to trust
It's so hard to open up
And I'd do anything for us
I'm still learning how to trust

[Chorus:]
I'm still learning how to bend
How to let you in
In a world full of tears
We'll conquer all our fears
I'm still learning how to fly
I wanna take you higher
I'll be there till the end
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'm still learning how to bend

I'm just trying to understand
It's all in someone else's hands
There's always been a bigger plan
But I don't need to understand

[Chorus:]
I'm still learning how to bend
How to let you in
In a world full of tears
We'll conquer all our fears
I'm still learning how to fly
I wanna take you higher
I'll be there till the end
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'm still learning how to bend

I'll be there till the end
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'm still learning how to bend
I'm still learning how to bend
I'll be there till the end
I'm still learning how to bend

As Long As You're Looking Back lyrics - gary allan

Got your feet wet
Got your heart broke
Didn't pan out
Like you hoped

But you played fair
And you swear that
Love had
The damn deck stacked

And you just wanna put it behind you
But you sit and you dwel on the past
Oh cant you see you cant see tomorrow
As long as you're lookin' back

You had someone
You could count on
You believed in
Bet your life on

But your back turned
And the knife fell
And you swear that
Payback
Is gonna be hell

Now you just cant trust anybody
Cuz a friend was just a snake in the grass
Boy cant you see you cant see tomorrow
As long as you're lookin' back

You can't move on
Til you let go of whats gone

No you're never gonna trust anybody
If you sit here and you dwell on the past
Oh can't you see you cant see tomorrow
As long as you're lookin' back....

Got your feet wet
Got your heart broke
Didn't pan out
Like you hoped

Got your feet wet
Got your heart broke
Didn't pan out
Like you hoped

Wrecking Ball lyrics - gary allan

I shoulda known when I caught the glance
That girl just wasn't no count
I shoulda run but she started to dance
That's when the money ran out

Well, she's a heartbreaker, I'm a mess
She's a tornado, I'm a trailer house, that girl's a hurricane in a dress

[Chorus:]
And she blows into town, loves me up and down
Just to watch me fall
She picks me up and then knocks me down again
I'm a wreck y'all, she's a wreckin' ball

She makes it easy to come down hard
She got me all tore up
I'm just a sucker with a stupid heart
Who can't get enough

Well, she's a heartbreaker, hell on wheels
She's a bulldozer, I'm just in the way of a steamroller in heels

[Repeat chorus]

And she's a heartbreaker, I'm a mess

[Repeat chorus twice]

I'm a wreck y'all
Better watch out for that wreckin' ball
Whoa, I'm mess
She's a wreckin' ball

Yesterday's Rain lyrics - gary allan

Sometimes I think about the touch of your skin
The taste of your lips and It all comes rushing back again
And I start to spin
I think about you when the skies turn grey
Always reminds me of the love we made
Back when you were here
Well, here come the tears

Of yesterdays rain
Yesterday's rain
Well, it's better to have loved and lost than not at all
But I still love to feel it fall
Yesterday's rain
It's just yesterday's rain

Well, I've been told I shouldnt stand in your rain
That's the only place I see your face
I can see you face
It took sometime to heal but I've moved on
I still go back in time and stand in your storm's
Familiar's warth
Always feels like home

Of yesterdays rain
Yesterday's rain
Well, it's better to have loved and lost than not at all
But I still love to feel it fall
Yesterday's rain
It's just yesterday's rain

Let your memory soak me to the bone
Reminds me that Im not alone in yesterday's rain
It's just yesterday's rain
That's just yesterday's pain
Think I'll walk in yesterday's rain

Trying To Matter lyrics - gary allan

We walk, we fly, we stay sober, we get high
We sleep all day, stay up all night
Right a wrong, and live our lives

We work, we play, we leave, and we stay
We worry about tomorrow, today
We laugh, cry, cuss and pray

Tryin to matter to somebody
Tryin to get the time of day
Tryin to fit into this crazy world
Somehow, somewhere, someway
And it's all we're all lookin for
It's never too late ya know
To try and matter to the ones that matter most

I've lived, I've learned that bridges don't just burn
Well that's the devil's selfish pride at work
Every chance he gets he'll take his turn

Tryin to matter to somebody
Tryin to get the time of day
Tryin to fit into this crazy world
Somehow, somewhere, someway
And it's all we're all lookin for
It's never too late ya know
To try and matter to the ones that matter most

Tryin to matter to somebody
Tryin to get the time of day
Tryin to fit into this crazy world
Somehow, somewhere, someway
And it's all we're all lookin for
It's never too late ya know
To try and matter to the ones that matter most

It's never too late ya know

Tryin to matter to somebody

Half Of My Mistakes lyrics - gary allan

Half of my mistakes I made stone cold sober
Half of my mistakes I've made at closing time
Half the time I never saw it coming, until it was over
Oh, and half of my mistakes I've made with love the line

Half of my mistakes I swear, I should've known better
Half of my mistakes were just amongst friends
You get a little distance on it, the truth is clearer
On, and half of my mistakes I'd probably make 'em again

[Chorus:]
If I had it all to do over
I'm sure I'd win and lost just as much
But spend alot less time on right and wrong
And a lot more time on love

Half of my mistakes I've made 'cause I was moving to quickley
Half of them were made 'cause my heart was moving too slow
Nobody can tell you a damn thing, if you ain't listening
Oh, And half of my mistakes I've made 'cause I couldn't let go

[Chorus]

Half of my mistakes I'd give anthing to change how it ended
Oh, and half of my mistakes, God, I would'nt change one thing
You can lean too hard on a prayer but I dont recommend it
'Cause half the good things in my life came from half of my mistakes
Yeah, a lot of good things in my life came from half of my mistakes

Living Hard lyrics - gary allan

Woke up this mornin' in yesterday's clothes
Still got my buzz from last night's show
A cup of coffee, Ready to go again

I've got twenty-seven shows in twenty-seven days
Playin' junk yard guitar, Gettin' paid
Gotta check the set list to tell ya what state I'm in

Go, listen
Livin' Hard is hardly livin'
For a hard rockin', road dog, randy musician
Playin' like the Stones, startin' to look like Dylan
Livin' hard is hardly livin'
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

I'm high on the stage, livin' in the spotlight
Airplane, champagne, yeah its just what it looks like
Chasin' dreams one song at a time

Well, welcome to my world for the next ninety minutes,
I'l be barin' my soul for the price of your ticket
And do it all over again tomorrow night
Go, listen
Livin' Hard is hardly livin'
For a hard rockin', road dog, randy musician
Playin' like the Stones, startin' to look like Dylan
Livin' hard is hardly livin'
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

Go, listen
Livin' Hard is hardly livin'
For a hard rockin', road dog, randy musician
Playin' like the Stones, startin' to look like Dylan
Livin' hard is hardly livin'
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

It's hardly livin'
Whoa, Whoa
Yeah, it's hardly livin'
Rollin' like the Stones, startin' to look like Dylan
Livin' hard is hardly livin'
Wow, Wow
Are you alright?
Yeah, listen
Livin' hard is hardly livin'
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

"Tough All Over" (2005)

Tough All Over lyrics - gary allan

[CHORUS]
Things are tough all over
And I'm losin' badly
I wish you were still here
And I said it sadly
But if you wanna come back
Cause you need a shoulder
Things are tough all over

Guess I should count my blessings
For the life i still have
In a world of misfortune
That can happen so fast
Life size dominoes
One falls after another
Things are tough all over

Baby, if you needed me
I'd of heard by now
Well, I hope you're not turnin'
On the other side of town
Cause things are tough all over

Well, baby, if you needed me
I'd of heard by now
Well I hope you're not hurtin'
On the other side of town

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Things are tough all over
Things are though
Tough
Things are tough
Yeah, things are tough

Best I Ever Had lyrics - gary allan

So you sailed away into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay, love can be so boring
And nothing's quite the same now
I just say your name now.

But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't want me back
You're just the best I ever had.

So you stole my world, now I'm just a phony
Remembering the girl leaves me down and lonely
Well send it in a letter
Make yourself feel better.

But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You dont want me back
You're just the best I ever had.

And it might take some time to patch me up inside
but I cant take it so I, I run away and hide
And I might find in time that you were always right
You're always right.

So you sailed away into a grey sky morning
Now, I'm here to stay, love can be so boring
Was it what you wanted?
Could it be I'm haunted?

But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You dont want me back
You're just the best I ever had.

You're just the best I ever had

I Just Got Back From Hell lyrics - gary allan

I just got back from hell
And im standing here alive
I know it's really hard to tell
Don't know how I survived
But I cant say im doin great
But I think im doin well
The devil's gonna have to wait
Cause I just got back from hell

Well, I just got back from hell
And I guess to tell the truth
Well, I've been mad at everyone, including God and you
When you cant find no one to blame you just blame yourself
And I know I'll never be the same
I just got back from hell

Forgive me if I had any part
If I ever broke your heart in two
Forgive me for what I didn't know
For what I didnt say or do
And God, forgive me as well
Cause I just got back from hell

Well, I just got back from hell
And I need to make some plans
It's the last thing that I wanna do
But i'll do the best I can
I'm gonna learn to live again
But I think i'll sit a spell
Tell the world that i'm alive
And I just got back from hell

I cant say that i'm doin great
But I think im gettin well
Gonna let the world know im alive
And I just got back from hell
And I just got back from hell
I just got back from hell
Got back from hell

Ring lyrics - gary allan

I remember the smile on her face
When I put you on her finger
I felt the love in her sweet embrace
And all the happiness you brought her
I still see it all in my mind
The way she loved me
All the time

[chorus]
Ring, ring
You ain't nothin' but a thing
Yesterday we used to hold her
LIttel band of gold
With a little blue stone
I'm sure gonna miss the hand
That you were on

She'd wear you when we were together
She'd wear you when I was gone
'Cause we believed in love forever
But I guess we were wrong
Now she's found somebody new
She doesn't care about
Me or you

[repeat chorus]

Wish I could put it all behind
But I can't keep her off my mind
Oh, oh
What can I do?

[repeat chorus]

Promise Broken lyrics - gary allan

I'm out here everyday breakin hearts along the way
I cause tears to fall and some to lose it all
This whole world would be
Better off without me
Well, I'm the saddest words you've spoken
I'm a promise broken

I'm the ballgame that you missed
I'm the calls that don't come in
I'm every poor excuse you use to cover up the truth
I tell the people that you love
That they don't matter quite enough
There's no stopping me once I'm in motion
I'm a promise broken

Disappointment, disillusion
Despair, confusion
I've seen it all in their eyes
Don't promise you will if you want
Don't say you do if you don't
It's alright to say you'll try

Well, I get pushed aside when you move on with your life
But I'll stand the test of time in your heart and in your mind
You'll think about me now and then
Wonder how your life might've been
But I will leave you never knowin
Well, I'm a promise broken
I'm a promise broken

Nickajack Cave (Johnny Cash's Redemption) lyrics - gary allan

Every man has to come to a crossroad somewhere along the way.
Johnny Cash came to his crossroad in a place called Nickajack Cave.

Little white pills and whiskey
Honky tonks and smoke
One night stands with his country band
Had him strung out on the ropes
Well, he cried out to Jesus
He said, "Jesus, I think I'm too lost to save."
He already had one foot inside the grave
As he stepped into the mouth of Nickajack Cave

Everything was darkness
Wasn't no light at all
Just the cold dank air and the pitch black dirt
And the spiders on the walls
Well, he laid down beneath a ledge
And curled up there to meet his judgement day
The shivering came upon him wave by wave
Well, he could feel the breath of death in Nickajack Cave

Then high above him shone a light
He never would forget
Then he heard a voice say, "Johnny Cash,
I aint through with you yet.
Get up, I aint through with you yet.
I aint through with you get Johnny Cash,
Get up."

Then he crawled out from beneath that ledge
And felt a gentle breeze
Tears and dirt smeared on his face
As peaceful as could be
Well, he knelt down upon the ground
Raised his eyes up to the light and prayed
He said, "Lord, I'll be your servant from this day."
That's how he became "The Man In Black" in Nickajack Cave

That's how he became "The Man In Black" in Nickajack Cave

Get up Johnny Cash, I aint through with you yet
Get up

Life Ain't Always Beautiful lyrics - gary allan

Life aint always beautiful
Sometimes it's just plain hard
Life can knock you down, it can break your heart

Life aint always beautiful
You think you're on your way
And it's just a dead end road at the end of the day

But the struggles make you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has its own way of takin it's sweet time

[CHORUS]
No, life aint always beautiful
Tears will fall sometimes
Life aint always beautiful
But it's a beautiful ride

Life aint always beautiful
Some days I miss your smile
I get tired of walkin all these lonely miles

And I wish for just one minute
I could see your pretty face
Guess I can dream, but life don't work that way

But the struggles make you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has its own way of takin it's sweet time

No, life aint always beautiful
But I know i'll be fine
Hey, life aint always beautiful
But it's a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride

He Can't Quit Her lyrics - gary allan

She was cool, she was hot, she was smokin' a lot
At the end of the bar
She had more than one too many buttons undone
On that blouse she wore
Starin' too long at hre lost in that Skynyrd song
Was his first mistake
And when she shot him that, "Boy you dont want none of this" look
It was way too late

[chorus]
She's like a needle to a junky, she's like whiskey to a drunk
she's like poker to a gambler, she's like a bullet in a gun
She's in his blood, he can't explain the rush
When he gest with her
Might be the death of him, but he's addicted, man
He can't quit her

Well, she'd ocme to his house and he'd tell her
She belonged just with him
She'd get up and she'd get dressed, take five hundred
No less, and then leave again
He said, "Baby, I'll take care of you, can't stand the thought
Of sharin' you, with them other guys."
She laughed and said, "Well, maybe you shouldnt call me no more then baby."
And he didn't, that first night

[repeat chorus]

She's in his blood, he cant explain the rush
When he gets with her
Might be the death of him, but he's addicted, man
He can't quit her

She was cool, she was hot, she was walkin' cross the parkin lot
With some other guy
Well, he was jealous, he was jonsin'
And he wound up on the wrong end of a fourty-give

What Kind Of Fool lyrics - gary allan

I see you here, night after night
All by yourself in the blue neon light
A drink in your hand, a tear on your face
A beautiful woman so out of place
I guess somebody told you goodbye
In a million years I couldn't understand why

[CHORUS]
What kind of fool
Didn't want you
What kind of fool
Tore your heart in two
What kind of fool
Didn't do everything he could do
To hold on to you
What kind of fool

Well, I ain't no saint and I ain't no king
I don't know it all, but I do know one thing
Whoever it was that made you so blue
Never deserved a woman like you
He should be down on his bended knees
Beggin' you to forgive him please

What kind of fool
Didn't want you
What kind of fool
Tore your heart in two
What kind of fool
Didn't do everything he could do
To hold on to you
What kind of fool

One day he'll wake up
and realize the terrible truth
He'll see that he had it all
When he had you

What kind of fool
Didn't want you
What kind of fool
Tore your heart in two
What kind of fool
Didn't do everything he could do
To hold on to you
What kind of fool
Tell me what kind of fool
What kind of fool

Puttin' Memories Away lyrics - gary allan

I threw our rings into a box
Filled with broken memories and fool's gold
And I woke up again last night in this lonely bed without you to hold
And I walkeda rond this house pullin' picutres off the walls
Just like I've done a hundred times before
Makin' sure I've got 'em all

[chorus]
Makin' sure I've got the hard to find
Little things that make me tink about you
'Cause I'm tired of this house always breakin' me down, feelin' blue
No, there's nothin' left to say
I'm puttin' memories away

Well, yesterday I found your dress
I guess there's something I missed in our room
But it didnt break me down the second that I found it like it used to
With red wine and tears I've been gatherin' all the years we spent together
I need to move on
'Cause I know that you're gone forever

[repeat chorus]

No, theres nothing left to say
I'm puttin' memories away

No Damn Good lyrics - gary allan

Well, I ain't too sure about this so-called trial separation
I mean it's been three whole days
And I don't know if I can take anymore
And I know i'm the constant source of your frustration
But her I am again knockin' at your door

[CHORUS]
And I'm just no damn good, am I baby
I'm just no damn good, I know it's true
'Cause everyday I go a little more crazy
I'm just no damn good
At not lovin' you

Well, who had the bright idea to do this king of thing anyhow?
If it was me, well, then obviously
I was off the wall
Well, I don't blame you a bit for feelin' angry now
You're right, I'm wrong, I wasn't supposed to call

And I'm just no damn good, am I baby
I'm just no damn good, I know it's true
'Cause everyday I go a little more crazy
I'm just no damn good
At not lovin' you

No good at not holdin'
No good at not seein'
No good at not showin' you
How much I care

And I'm just no damn good, am I baby
I'm just no damn good, I know it's true
'Cause everyday I go a little more crazy
I'm just no damn good
At not lovin' you

Everyday I go a little more crazy
"cause I'm just no damn good
At not lovin' you

Putting My Misery On Display lyrics - gary allan

I live in my own world on 18 wheels
Playing music and writing songs about the way I feel
Tonight I'll play my guitar for you
I'll pour my heart out and tonight it's blue
So gather round and watch me play
I'm putting my misery on display

I was raised with the West Coast bands
I dont change for anyone I stay the way I am
I dont do this for fame, I do this for me
It soothes my soul and keeps my sanity
I'll only be here for today
Putting my misery on display

And this road it's so cold
And at times it feels so long
But I just keep moving on and singing you my songs
'Cause I dont know any other way
Putting my misery on display

Tonight I wish someone would hold me
A woman's touch and put my mind at ease
Her lips, her breaath up against my skin
Spread her wingsa nd take my body in
I'll be gone by the break of day
Putting my misery on display

And this road gest so cold
And at times it feels so long
But I just keep moving on and singing you my songs
'Cause I dont know any other way
Than putting my misery on display

I dont know any other way
Than putting my misery on display

Drinkin' Dark Whiskey lyrics - gary allan

Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies,
One leads to another,
On a Saturday night,
Don't ya cross your heart,
Unless you hope to die,
Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies

Well the first drop burns
But the second one goes down smooth,
Then that old black label gets a hold of you,
It loosens your tongue but it never tells the truth

Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies,
One leads to another,
On a Saturday night,
Don't ya cross your heart,
Unless you hope to die,
Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies

When the bottle starts talkin'
Be careful what he might say,
He talks in the dark like he never would in the day,
Then he gets in trouble just as soon as he gets away,

Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies,
One leads to another,
On a Saturday night,
Don't ya cross your heart,
Unless you hope to die,
Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies

Well a little white lie don't mean anyone no good,
When it's making the rounds all over the neighborhood,
The next thing you know your all misunderstood,

Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies,
One leads to another,
On a Saturday night,
Don't ya cross your heart,
Unless you hope to die,
Drinkin' dark whiskey,
Tellin' white lies

Can't Do It Today lyrics - gary allan

Trying to keep a candle burning in a hurricane,
That's what it's like when you love me and you leave me this way,
Like a dove crying out when he's lost the will to fly,
Yeah, shackled down to the earth by your long chain of lies,
Well,

I'll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn't shine,
Let you back into my life when the oceans are dry,
Take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray,
But I just can't do it today,
I can't do it today,

Well I can see you dancing in that strangers arms,
My world hasn't stopped turning but it's falling apart,
Every breath that I take's a little closer to sane,
Yeah, they say that time is a healer but it's still a long, long ways a way
Yeah,

I'll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn't shine,
Let you back into my life when the oceans are dry,
Take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray,
But I just can't do it today,
I can't do it today,

Don't wanna do it today,
Well there's a part of me that wishes I could just forget,
But I haven't found the mercy yet,
Ain't no mercy yet,

I'll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn't shine,
Let you back into my life when the oceans are dry,
Take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray,
But I just can't do it today,
I can't do it today,

I just can't do it today,
I just can't do it today,
Don't wanna do it today,
Can't do it today,
Not gonna do it today

Tough Little Boys lyrics - gary allan

Well I never once
Backed down from a punch
Well I'd take it square on the chin
Well I found out fast
A bully's just that
You've got to stand up to him
So I didn't cry when I got a black eye
As bad as it hurt, I just grinned
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again.

Scared me to death
When you took your first steps
And I'd fall everytime you fell down
Your first day of school, I cried like a fool
And I followed your school bus to town
Well I didn't cry, when Old Yeller died
At least not in front of my friends
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again

Well I'm a grown man
And as strong as I am
Sometimes its hard to believe
That one little girl, with little blonde curls
Could totally terrify me
If you were to ask
My wife would just laugh
She'd say "I know all about men
How when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again"

Well I know one day, I'll give you away
And I'm gonna stand there and smile
And when I get home, and I'm all alone
Well, I'll sit in your room for a while
Well I didn't cry when Old Yeller died
At least not in front of my friends
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again
When tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again.

See If I Care lyrics - gary allan

I saw you walking down the street last night,
I saw him walking by your side,
I saw the way he stopped and held you tight,
I saw the look in your eyes,
Go on and tell him that you love him,
Go on and show him he's the one,
Go on and give him every sacred thing that you used to save for us,

And see if I care,
Look at the way you're tearing me apart baby,
See if I care,
Look at the tears falling in this heart baby,
Go on go on go on,
Yeah go on go on go on,
And see if I care,

I still can hear the way you whisper,
Softly in my ear,
I lay awake and I remember the way it felt to hold you near,
Go on and run your fingers through his hair,
Go on and lay by his side,
Go on and wrap him in your dark surrender,
And all your tender lies,

And see if I care,
Look at the way you're tearing me apart baby,
See if I care,
Look at the tears falling in this heart baby,
Go on go on go on,
Yeah go on go on go on,
And see if I care,

Look a the way you're tearing me apart baby,
See if I care,
Look at the tears falling in this heart baby,
Go on go on go on,
Yeah go on go on go on,
Well go on,
And see if I care
See if I care......
See if I care.....
See if I care.......

Songs About Rain lyrics - gary allan

Well this town has closed down way too early,
And there's nothing to do,
So I'm driving around in circles,
And I'm thinking about you,
Today I heard you got a new last name,
Sure didn't know it was gonna hit me this way,
And the radio just keeps on playing all these songs about rain
Now there's all kind of songs about babies and love that goes right,
But for some unknown reason nobody wants to play them tonight,
Hey I hope it's sunny wherever you are,
But that's sure not the picture tonight in my car,
And it sure ain't easing my pain all these songs like,

Rainy Night In Georgia,
and Kentucky Rain,
Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again,
Blue Eyes Crying In The early morning Rain,
They go on and on,
And there's no two the same,

Oh it would be easy to blame all these songs about rain,
Well I thought I was over you but I guess maybe I'm not,
Cause when I let you go looks like lonely is all that I got,
Guess I'll never know what could have been,
Sure ain't helping this mood that I'm in,
If their gonna keep on playing me songs like,

Rainy Night In Georgia,
and Kentucky Rain,
Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again,
Blue Eyes Crying In The early morning Rain,
They go on and on,
And there's no two the same,

Oh how I wish I could blame all these songs about rain,
All these songs about rain,
Songs about rain.......

I Can Love You lyrics - gary allan

I can't stop your heart from breaking,
Can't make right mistakes we've made,
Can't dry your crying eyes,
For my little angels sake,
I can't make the sun keep smiling,
Or blow away the clouds,
There's some things in this old world girl,
I can't do nothing bout,

But I can love you,
Like I've always done,
And when the hard times come a knocking,
Honey you won't ever see me run,
I won't leave you,
When you need a friend,
Can't make the bad days that much better,
Baby than they've ever been,
But I can love you,

Can't hold back the ocean waves,
Or stop a sinking ship,
Can't make a mountain move,
Or tell you how to live,

But I can love you,
Like I've always done,
And when the hard times come a knocking,
Honey you won't ever see me run,
I won't leave you,
When you need a friend,
Can't make the bad days that much better,
Baby than they've ever been,
But I can love you,

And I won't leave you,
When you need a friend,
Can't make the bad days that much better,
Baby than they've ever been,
But I can love you,
But I can love you

Don't Look Away lyrics - gary allan

Desperation's causing me,
To question every single word you say,
The distance that keeps growing in between us,
Girl just leaves me so afraid,
Well you tried so hard to carry on,
But I can tell there's something wrong these days,
Well girl I've got to know the truth,
Just give it to me straight,
Don't' look away,

Don't look away,
Don't look away,
When I ask you if you love me still,
And if your gonna stay,
Don't look away,

Well I've known you long enough to know,
You're trying not to let your feelings show,
Lately when I hold you near,
I still feel I'm sitting hear alone,
This confusion setting in your mind,
Blocking all the words you mean to say,
Well girl I've got to know the truth,
Just give it to me straight,
Don't look away,

Don't look away,
Don't look away,
When I ask you if you love me still,
And if your gonna stay,
Don't look away,

Don't look away,
Don't look away
Well girl I've gotta know the truth,
Just give it to me straight,
Don't look away,
When I ask you if you love me still,
And if your gonna stay,
Don't look away

Guys Like Me lyrics - gary allan

Well there's no more smokey bars in California,
There ain't no wildlife left in Tennessee,
But I keep on living every song I'm singing,
And their trying to put an end to guys like me,
All that's left in Bakersfield is a jukebox,
And it's haunted by old songs and memories,
It's getting hard to find a place to play my guitar,
And their trying to put an end to guys like me,

Well, I'd like to find a place where love surrounds me,
Some town where they don't mind me hanging around,
A place where life don't move to fast,
And what you are is not a thing of the past,
Where you can land your dreams on solid ground,
Well, I'm sitting on a barstool down on Broadway,
Waiting for my turn to sing my dreams,
I'm just a California boy with my old guitar,
And their trying to put and end to guys like me,

Well, I'd like to find a place where love surrounds me,
Some town where they don't mind me hanging around,
A place where life don't move to fast,
And what you are is not a thing of the past,
Where you can land your dreams on solid ground,
Well, I'm sitting on a barstool down on Broadway,
Waiting for my turn to sing my dreams,
I'm just a California boy with my old guitar,
And their trying to put and end to guys like me,

Yeah their trying to put an end to guys like me

Nothing On But The Radio lyrics - gary allan

I sure do hope this is a long night,
Cause I've never felt one so right
Each look into your eyes I fall in,
A little more and more,
Looks like we started us a fire,
Wrapped up in flames of desire,
With every touch their burning higher,
Two shadows dancing on the wall,

With nothing on but the radio,
Feel the music playing soft and slow,
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio

We'll fall asleep here in the moonlight,
In tangled sheets we'll be here all night,
And when we wake up in the morning,
We might stay like this all day,
Two people meant to be together,
Two lovers dreaming of forever,
And it just keeps on getting better,
With every tender little kiss,

With nothing on but the radio,
Feel the music playing soft and slow,
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio

Two people meant to be together,
Two lovers dreaming of forever,
And it just keeps on getting better,

With nothing on but the radio,
Feel the music playing soft and slow,
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio

You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio

You Don't Know A Thing About Me lyrics - gary allan

To you I'm just the man who let you down,
The one who never gave you what you need,
It's true I wasn't always around,
Back when you were reaching out for me,
I know you think I didn't care,
You say I'm just the hurting kind,
And I know you think my heart wasn't there,
But I'm begging you to think it through one more time,

Cause you don't know a thing about me,
If you don't know how much I miss you,
And you don't know a thing about me,
Unless you know how much I need to be with you,
Well I see the mistakes I made,
The way I acted carelessly,
But if you don't know how much I need your forgiveness,
Then you don't know a thing about me,

If I could just go back and make it right,
And take the tears away you know I would,
I've come to you with no excuse tonight,
Just a prayer that I'll be understood,
You tell me that I'm never gonna change,
I'll always be the same old guy,
You think there's nothing left for us to say,
Before you write me off take a look in my eyes,

Cause you don't know a thing about me,
If you don't know how much I miss you,
And you don't know a thing about me,
Unless you know how much I need to be with you,
Well I see the mistakes I made,
The way I acted carelessly,
But if you don't know how much I need your forgiveness,
Then you don't know a thing about me,

If you don't know how much I need your forgiveness,
Then you don't know a thing about me,
No you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me,
Well you don't know a thing about me......

A Showman's Life (feat. Willie Nelson) lyrics - gary allan

A showman's life,
Is a smokey bar,
And the fevered chase,
Of a tiny star,
It's a hotel room,
And a lonely wife,
From what I've seen,
Of a showman's life,

Nobody told me about this part,
They told me all about the pretty girls,
And the wine,
And the money,
And the good times,
There's no mention of,
All the wear and tear,
On an old honky tonker's heart,
Well I might of known it,
But nobody told me about this part,

A boy will dream,
As children do,
Of a great white way,
Until the dream comes true,
And a phony smile,
In a colored light,
Is all there is,
To a showman's life,
Nobody told me about this part,

Nobody told me about this part,
They told me all about the pretty girls,
And the wine,
And the money,
And the good times,
There's no mention of,
All the wear and tear,
On an old honky tonker's heart,
Well I might of known it,
But nobody told me about this part,

But nobody told me about this part,

Nobody told me about this part,
They told me all about the pretty girls,
And the wine,
And the money,
And the good times,
There's no mention of,
All the wear and tear,
On an old honky tonker's heart,
Well I might of known it,
But nobody told me about this part,

Well I might of known it,
But nobody told me about this part

Man To Man lyrics - gary allan

You're throwin' around a lot of serious accusations
Ain't too hard to tell what you're insinuatin'
You think I'm the one who stole her away
And if not for me she'd still be yours today
We're both men here so why play games
Why don't we call a spade a spade

Man to man
Tell me the truth, tell me
Were you ever there when she needed you
Man to man
Look me in the eye, tell me
If you really loved her
Why'd you make her cry
Man to man
Who cheated who
You're the one to blame
Tell me it ain't true
Man to man
Man to man

Well you think al you anger is justified
Me, I think, it's just your wounded pride
What did you really think she was gonna do
She's a real woman, not a doormat for you
You want her back, but it's too late
Why don't we just cut to the chase

Man to man
Tell me the truth, tell me
Were you ever there when she needed you
Man to man
Look me in the eye, tell me
If you really loved her
Why'd you make her cry
Man to man
Who cheated who
You're the one to blame
Tell me it ain't true
Man to man

Man to man
Tell me the truth, tell me
Were you ever there when she needed you
Man to man
Look me in the eye, tell me
If you really loved her
Why'd you make her cry
Man to man
Who cheated who
You're the one to blame
Tell me it ain't true
Man to man
Man to man
Man to man...

The Devil's Candy lyrics - gary allan

Smoky old bars, bright neon lights
Good ole boys and girls of the night
An ice cold beer and a good shot of brandy
I've always had a sweet tooth
For the devil's candy

And I've fought it all my life
And the battle's now a war
But I'll get up tomorrow
And I'll fight it all once more
I want to do what's right
But I'll never understand me
I've always had a sweet tooth
For the devil's candy

Well I've played the cards, and I've rolled the dice
Well I gave up heaven for a fool's paradise
I once lost an angel when a bad girl was handy
I've always had a sweet tooth
For the devil's candy

And I've fought it all my life
And the battle's now a war
But I'll get up tomorrow
And I'll fight it all once more
I want to do what's right
But I'll never understand me
I've always had a sweet tooth
For the devil's candy

I want to do what's right
But I'll never understand me
I've always had a sweet tooth
For the devil's candy
Yes I've always had a sweet tooth
For the devil's candy

What I'd Say lyrics - gary allan

Talkin' to the mirror, whispering your name
It's just like you were here, you'd think I was insane
I hold these conversations in the silence of my room
Rehearsing all the things I'd say should I run into you

How's it goin', might be what I'd say
Well you broke my heart you know
Or it looks like rain today
Or God I've missed you
Since you went away
You're lookin' well
Or go to hell
Might be what I'd say

There's time I've been so angry
I could put my fist right through the wall
And then there's times I've come so close
To givin' you a call
I love you and I hate you
All at the same time
Then I pray you'll come back to me
Before I lose my mind

How's it goin', might be what I'd say
Well you broke my heart you know
Or it looks like rain today
Or God I've missed you
Since you went away
You're lookin' well
Or go to hell
Might be what I'd say

Or maybe, God I've missed you
Since you went away
You're lookin' well
Or go to hell
Might be what I'd say

Man Of Me lyrics - gary allan

Well high school got me educated
Still when I graduated
I didn't have a clue

Did a stand in the Navy
They did they're best to break me
Somehow I made it through

I've had some hard knocks
I've been around the block
But baby I believe
That love and you made a man of me

Raising hell racing cars
Closing down the local bars
That what I used to do

Family told me settle down
Find yourself some solid ground
Where you can put down some roots

Back then I thought love
Was only sissy stuff
But now I see
That love and you made a man of me

Love and you made a man of me

Don't know what it is you do
But everytime I'm holding you
I know what my heart is for

I'm the one you lean on
Gotta be strong
It's not just about me anymore

Well goodbye to my blind and imature days
Love and you made a man of me
Made a man of me, yeah
Made a man of me, wow

I'd still be only lost and lonely
Can't ya see
That love and you made a man of me
Love and you made a man of me

Ya made a man of me
Man of me, yeah

Adobe Walls lyrics - gary allan

Buenos noches senorita, I'm mighty pleased to meet ya
Maybe you and I could sit a spell and talk
I'm new to Santa Fe, I just rode into town today
Thought I'd spend some time in these adobe walls
It's dark in this cantina, it's a wonder that I seen ya
Sittin' without any company at all
I was wondering if we might dance away this lonely night
Like two shadows on these old adobe walls

I hear Celito Lindo softly playing
As I take you in my arms and hold you close
Though I don't understand a word you're saying
Your brown eyes tell me all I need to know

These walls have stood for ages and though time still turns its pages
Hearts are still the same when night begins to fall
Sure as there are stars above we're not the first to fall in love
That's the magic of these old adobe walls

I hear Celito Lindo softly playing
As I take you in my arms and hold you close
Though I don't understand a word you're saying
Your brown eyes tell me all I need to know

These walls have stood for ages
And though time still turns its pages
Hearts are still the same when night begins to fall
As sure as there are stars above
We're not the first to fall in love
That's the magic of these old adobe walls

As sure as there are stars above
We're not the first to fall in love
That's the magic of these old adobe walls

What's On My Mind lyrics - gary allan

I can't have this conversation
Without lots of reservations on the line
If there's a way to slip around it
Then I'm bound to get around it one more time

Honey you are so persuasive
But it makes me more evasive when you pry
You can label me elusive
But the facts are inconclusive at this time

'Cause you can't handle what's on my mind
I've got roses growing over what you'd find
But keep on asking if you're inclined
'Cause you can't handle what's on my mind

I don't mean to drive you crazy
Comin' off all vague and hazy just because
I don't have an answer for you
I just wouldn't want to bore you if it does

'Cause you can't handle what's on my mind
I've got roses growing over what you'd find
But keep on asking if you're inclined
'Cause you can't handle what's on my mind

But keep on asking if you're inclined
'Cause you can't handle what's on my mind
Because you can't handle what's on my mind

Alright Guy lyrics - gary allan

You know just the other morning
I was hanging around in my house
I had that old book with pictures of Madonna naked
And I was checkin' it out
Just then a friend of mine came to the door
She said she never pegged me for a scumbag before
Said she didn't ever want to see me no more
And I still don't why

I think I'm an alright guy
I think I'm an alright guy
Well I just want to live until I gotta die
I know I ain't perfect but God knows I try
I think I'm an alright guy
I think I'm alright

This one time for medicinal purposes they forced me to smoke some dope
I'm pretty sure I can still be the President
But I don't think I'll ever get to be the Pope
Well I get wild and I know I get drunk
It's not like I got a bunch of bodies in my trunk
My old man used to call me a no-good punk
And I still don't know why

I think I'm an alright guy
I think I'm an alright guy
Well I just want to live until I gotta die
I know I ain't perfect but God knows I try
I think I'm an alright guy
I think I'm alright

You know just the other night
The cops pulled me over outside the bar
When they turned on their lights
And they ordered me out my car
Man I was only kiddin' when I called 'em a couple of dicks
But still they made me do the stupid human tricks
Now I'm stuck in this jail with a bunch of dumb hicks
And I still don't know why

I think I'm an alright guy
I think I'm an alright guy
Well I just want to live until I gotta die
I know I ain't perfect but God knows I try
I think I'm an alright guy
I think I'm alright

The One lyrics - gary allan

No rush though I need your touch
I won't rush your heart
Until you feel on solid ground
Until your strength is found, girl

I'll fill those canyons in your soul
Like a river lead you home
And I'll walk a step behind
In the shadows so you shine
Just ask it will be done
And I will prove my love
Until you're sure that I'm "the one"

Somebody else was here before
He treated you unkind
And broken wings need time to heal
Before a heart can fly, girl

I'll fill those canyons in your soul
Like a river lead you home
And I'll walk a step behind
In the shadows so you shine
Just ask it will be done
And I will prove my love
Until you're sure that I'm "the one"

Trust in me and you'll find a heart so true
All I want to do is give the best of me to you
And stand beside you

Just ask it will be done
And I will prove my love
Until you're sure that I'm "the one"

I'm Doin' My Best lyrics - gary allan

Single six months yesterday
Thought I oughta celebrate
So I went down to grab a couple beers

And I got so drunk I ripped my pants
I asked the bouncer for a dance
I thanked him as he threw me out
I woke up at a Waffle House
With a shiner and a wild brunette
She don't know my real name yet
Well no I ain't over you

But I'm doin' my best
Every day and every night
Hangin' on by a thread
That's stretched just a little too tight
If I can't find some peace of mind
I'll take what I can get
I ain't doin' much good
But I'm doin' my best

I decided I'd get smart
And have a long talk with my heart
At some quiet spot outside of town

So I took my best friend's Pontiac
I drove it like a maniac
Right into the reservoir
I guess we ain't best friends no more
Just my luck a cop came by
Who I beat up in junior high
He said I better have a good excuse

I said I'm doin' my best
Every day and every night
Hangin' on by a thread
That's stretched just a little too tight
If I can't find some peace of mind
I'll take what I can get
I ain't doin' much good
But I'm doin' my best

Some day I just might join the human race again
If I can ever find a place to show my face again
Yeah I'm doin' my best

I said I'm doin' my best
Every day and every night
Hangin' on by a thread
That's stretched just a little too tight
If I can't find some peace of mind
I'll take what I can get
I ain't doin' much good
But I'm doin' my best
I'm doin' my best
I'm doin' my best

I Don't Look Back lyrics - gary allan

I was born to travel down blue highways
I never seem to learn much from my past
I don't make excuses for my mistakes
I take each day and I live it
Like it was my last

I don't look back
One foot in front of the other
On this one way track I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back

I'm sure there's memories I've missed out on
There's been a couple of loves I've left behind
I haven't found a heart hat I can count on
But don't feel sorry for me
I ain't the lonesome kind

I don't look back
One foot in front of the other
On this one way track
I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
No I don't look back

I don't look back
One foot in front of the other
On this one way track
I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
No I don't look back
No, no I don't look back
I don't look back

What Would Wille Do lyrics - gary allan

I was lost in trouble and strife, I heard a voice and it changed my life
And now it's a brand new day, and I ain't afraid to say
You're not alone when you're down and out
And I think you know who I'm talking about
When I don't know how I'll get through
I ask myself what would Willie do

What would Willie do, well he'd travel so far with nothing but a song and his old guitar
And a tour bus and some semi-trucks, thirty crew men and a little bit of luck
Well he loves all the people, the ugly and the randy
If you don't believe me take a look at the family
And they'll tell you that it's true
When skies are gray what would Willie do

Well long ago he came unto us, his words were simple but they went right through us
And the whole world sang along, but then they didn't want to hear his songs
He was gone and we thought we'd lost him
But he grew his hair and he moved to Austin
And all of the people smiled, they came to hear him sing from miles
Like a miracle all those rednecks and hippies
From New York City down to Mississippi
Stood together and raised a brew
When it's all gone wrong what would Willie do

You know sometimes I wonder when I ain't gettin' nowhere
What would old Willie do when it all gets too much to bear
And I can see him on his lonely old tour bus
And he's got his problems just like any of us
Well he'd just take a deep breath and then he'd let it all go
And he'd take another deep breath and let it all go
And he'd take another deep breath...and he'd hold it
Ah and I bet he'd feel hungry in a way that seems strange
Yeah hungry for all the things that he just can't change
Like the time he passed out in is own bedroom
And his wife sewed him up in the sheets and beat him with a broom and he forgave her
And you think that's rough, well then the IRS came and they took away all of his stuff
They took his golf course and his recording studio, and he just went out and did another show
So when it's all coming down on you
You better ask yourself what would Willie do

What would Willie do, well he'd take a little time
And talk to old rooser as he'd drive on down the line
And there's millions down that road, and with a word he's gonna lighten their load
He loves all the people no matter their races
Hell he even had a hit country song with Julio Iglesias
And that ain't easy to do, so when it's all too much, what would Willie
When the game gets tough what would Willie
When they call your bluff what would Willie do

"Smoke Rings In The Dark" (1999)

Smoke Rings In The Dark lyrics - gary allan

Well I won't make you tell me
What I've come to understand
You're a certain kind of woman and
I'm a different kind of man
I've tried to make you love me
You're tried to find a spark of the flame that burned and
Somehow turned to smoke ring in the dark

The loneliness within me
Takes a heavy toll
'Cause it burns as slow as whiskey through an empty aching soul and
The night is like a dagger
Long and cold and sharp
As I sit here on the front steps
Blowing smoke rings in the dark

I- I- I know I must be going
'Cause loves already gone and
All I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart and
All I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark

The rain falls where it wants to
Wind blows where it will
Everything on earth goes somewhere
But I swear we're standin' still
So I'm not going to wake you
I'll go easy on your heart
I'll just touch your face and drift away
Like smoke rings in the dark

I- I- I know I must be going
'Cause loves already gone and
All I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart and
All I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark

Right Where I Need To Be lyrics - gary allan

There's a plane flyin' outta here tonight
Destination New Orleans
Boss man says my big promotion's on the line
He says that's right where I need to be

Lately I've been on the road more than I've been home
All this leavin' her alone is killin' me
And holdin' her right now has got me thinkin' more and more
This is right where I need to be

Where when I hear her I can see her
I can smell her sweet perfume
I can feel her skin against me when I sleep
Where I won't miss her I can kiss her
Anytime that I want to
Yeah that's right where I need to be
Yeah that's right where I need to be

There's a plane flyin' outta here tonight
With an empty first class seat
'Cause I've finally got all my priorities in line
And I'm right where I need to be

Where when I hear her I can see her
I can smell her sweet perfume
I can feel her skin against me when I sleep
Where I won't miss her I can kiss her
Anytime that I want to
Yeah that's right where I need to be
Yeah I'm right where I need to be

Don't Tell Mama lyrics - gary allan

I was headed north on Highway Five
On a star-lit Sunday night
When a pick-up truck flew by me out of control
As I watched in my headlights
He swerved left then back right
He never hit the brakes
As he left the road

I found him lying in the grass
Among the steel and glass
With an empty whiskey bottle by his side
And through the blood and tears
He whispered in my ear
A few last words just before he died

Don't tell Mama I was drinkin'
Lord knows her soul would never rest
I can't leave this world with Mama thinkin'
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath

I still think about that night
And how that young man died
And how others sometimes pay for our mistakes
The last thing on his mind
As he left this world behind
Was knowing someone else's heart would break

Don't tell Mama I was drinkin'
Lord knows her soul would never rest
I can't leave this world with Mama thinkin'
I met the Lord with whiskey on my breath

Don't tell Mama I was drinkin'

Lovin' You Against My Will lyrics - gary allan

I don't wanna hurt nobody
Don't wanna make nobody cry
I don't wanna do wrong, I don't wanna do wrong
I don't wanna tell no lies
I'm lovin' you, lovin' you against my will
Lovin' you, lovin' you against my will

I don't wanna hear the phone ring
Don't wanna hear your voice on the line
I don't wanna come to you, I don't wanna come to you
I don't wanna give in this time
Girl, I'm lovin' you, lovin' you against my will

Your love is like a deep dark river
Pullin' me out to sea
The harder I try to resist you
The weaker I seem to be

I don't wanna turn down your side street
I don't wanna pull in your drive
Don't wanna see you standin' there, don't wanna see you standin' there
Don't wanna see that look in your eyes
Girl, I'm lovin' you, lovin' you against my will

Your love is like a deep dark river
Pullin' me out to sea
The harder I try to resist you
The weaker I seem to be

I don't wanna feel your heartbeat
I don't wanna taste your kiss
I don't wanna call your name, I don't wanna call your name
I don't wanna want you like this
Girl, I'm lovin' you, lovin' you against my will
Lovin' you, lovin' you against my will

Sorry lyrics - gary allan

Ooh ooh ooh ooh sorry, ooh ooh ooh ooh sorry

Well I came home from work in the middle of the day
Two hours early, but a little too late
She was coming down the stairs, looking mighty grand
With a big brown suitcase in her hand

I said, "What's goin' on, baby, what's the deal"
She said, "I just don't feel like I used to feel"
With the devil's own smile right out of the blue
She said, "I done went and found myself somebody new"
She said,

Sorry it didn't work out
Sorry, guess I'll see you around
She ruined my life, left me broken hearted
And all she had to say was, "Sorry"

Well, I laid awake cryin' for many a night
I just couldn't seem to get her off my mind
I went to her, got down on my knees
Said, "Baby, won't ya please come back to me"
She said,

Sorry it didn't work out
Sorry, guess I'll see you around
She ruined my life, left me broken hearted
And all she had to say was, "Sorry"

Well, time went by and my poor heart healed
I found me a woman who's love is real
Man she's a looker, the apple of my eye
And every head turns when she walks by

Well, we ran into my old flame the other day
It blew my mind what she had to say
She said, "Hello, baby, well how have you been
I was hopin' maybe we could get together again"
And I said,

Sorry it didn't work out
Sorry, guess I'll see you around
You ruined my life and left me broken hearted
And all you had to say was, "Sorry"

You said, "Sorry"

Cryin' For Nothin lyrics - gary allan

I am a full grown fool and I shoulda known better
But I tried and I tried and I could not forget her
I would go back to her time after time
Man I must have been out of my mind

All of that cryin' for nothing
All of that tryin' for nothing
What has it ever got me
What has it ever taught me
I've got to keep believing
In somethin' baby
'Stead of just tryin' for nothing
Cryin' for nothin' at all

Well we fought for love and we fought for trust
And the whole blessed time it was right there in front of us
We could not reach it and I don't know why
It took so long just to say goodbye

All of that cryin' for nothing
All of that tryin' for nothing
What has it ever got me
What has it ever taught me
I've got to keep believing
In somethin' baby
'Stead of just tryin' for nothing
Cryin' for nothin' at all

Well her friends all told her, mine told me
But we would not listen, could not see
Me and my pride, her and her dreams
We never ever stood a chance it seems

All of that cryin' for nothing
All of that tryin' for nothing
What has it ever got me
What has it ever taught me
I've got to keep believing
In somethin' baby
'Stead of just tryin' for nothing
Cryin' for nothin' at all

'Stead of just tryin' for nothing
Cryin' for nothin' at all

Bourbon Borderline lyrics - gary allan

I wake up in the morning full of dread
Tryin' to remember what I'd said
I say that I won't call you
And I mean it every time
Until I cross that bourbon borderline

I wish that I could tell you why I call
Sometimes it's just hard for me, that's all
I know that it's over and it's just a waste of time
Until I cross that bourbon borderline

Memories of you surround me
And I'm afraid the tears might drown me
Oh, I think I'm doing fine
Until I cross that bourbon borderline

It's good that I just do this now and then
You know I'm really not a drinking man
But I can't bear to talk about us any other time
Until I cross that bourbon borderline

Memories of you surround me
And I'm afraid the tears might drown me
Oh, I think I'm doing fine
Until I cross that bourbon borderline

Oh, I think I'm doing fine
Until I cross that bourbon borderline

Runaway lyrics - gary allan

As I walk along I wonder
What went wrong with our love
A love so rare and strong

And as I walk along, I think of
The times we had together
While our hearts were young

I'm a walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery and I wonder
I wa wa wa wonder
Why, why why why why why she ran away
And I wonder where she will stay
My little runaway, a run run run run runaway

I'm a walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery and I wonder
I wa wa wa wonder
Why, why why why why why she ran away
And I wonder where she will stay
My little runaway, a run run run run runaway

A run run run run runaway
A run run run run runaway

Learning To Live With Me lyrics - gary allan

I used to wish that I was
Great as any man
Better than I am
Could do things no one can
And I used to wish that I was cool as I could be
But now I'm learning to live with me

Is anybody satisfied with who they really are
You could be the moon
And still be jealous of the stars
You gotta' learn to swim
If you can't walk upon the sea
So I'm learning to live with me

And I used to wish that I was
Braver than the rest
A hero nothin' less
A big duke in the west
But I know the way I am is who I'm gonna be
So I'm learning to live with me

Is anybody satisfied with who they really are
You could be the moon
And still be jealous of the stars
You gotta' learn to swim
If you can't walk upon the sea
So I'm learning to live

Learning to forgive
Learning to live with me

Cowboy Blues lyrics - gary allan

Well there's a lonesome feelin' that comes over me
When I hear that highway moan
I know it's where the good Lord meant for me to be
A dreamin' drifter far from home

I roam from town to town out on the interstate
I'm always only passin' through
I need my woman's lovin' she's so far away
I'm singin' the cowboy blues

Stranger don't you know I'd like to be your friend
If I had the time to stay
But I'm a tumbleweed a blowin' in the wind
I've got to catch another stage

I strap on my guitar just like a .45
I pray each night my aim is true
I'm shootin' for the heart a lookin' in your eyes
Singin' the cowboy blues

Sometimes I get to thinkin' 'bout settlin' down
Fade off into a memory
Every night that I step out to face the crowd
I know this is the life for me

I strap on my guitar just like a .45
I pray each night my aim is true
I'm shootin' for the heart a lookin' in your eyes
I'm singin' the cowboy blues
Singin' the cowboy blues
Singin' the cowboy blues

I'm The One lyrics - gary allan

If you need someone to take you by the hand
And help you heal your broken heart
Show you how to find the faith in love again
So you can make a brand new start
If you're looking for the man to chase away your clouds
And be your morning sun
Oh, baby I'm the one

Believing in tomorrow is so hard
When all your yesterdays are filled with pain
Trusting in the future isn't easy
When the past is just pouring rain
All you need it someone to take away
The memory of what he's done
Oh, baby I'm the one

I'm the one who longs to kiss your lips
And hold you tight
I'm the one who longs to love you
For the rest of your life
So if you're looking for the kind of man who loves
Forever and will never run
Oh, baby I'm the one

I'm the one who longs to kiss your lips
And hold you tight
I'm the one who longs to love you
For the rest of your life
So if you're looking for the kind of man who loves
Forever and will never run
Oh, baby I'm the one
Oh, baby I'm the one

Greenfields lyrics - gary allan

Greenfields backed by blue skies
'Bout as blue as your two true blue eyes
And I wonder do you feel the way I feel
When you see greenfields

Sometimes, oh, I wish you were still mine
And I'd go back in time and I'll always find
You in greenfields and you're layin' by my side
And love was real and I could taste it
On these lips of mine in

Greenfields backed by blue skies
'Bout as blue as your two true blue eyes
And I wonder do you feel the way I feel
When you see greenfields

When I see cotton candy clouds up in heaven
I close my eyes and then we drift away
And I'm loving you and holding on forever
There in your arms where I used to lay in

Greenfields backed by blue skies
'Bout as blue as your two true blue eyes
And I wonder do you feel the way I feel
In greenfields

"It Would Be You" (1998)

It Would Be You lyrics - gary allan

It's hard describing a heartache
All because it's a one of a kind of thing
A serious injury
And a whole lot of endless pain
If it was a storm
I'd compare to a hurricane
Oh it's even got a name

If it was a drink
It would be a strong one
If it was a sad song
It would be a long one
If it was a color
It would be a deep deep blue
But if we're talking about a heartache
It would be you

If it was a full moon
It would be a total eclipse
If it was a tidal wave
It would sink a thousand ships
If it was a blizzard
It would be a record breaking cold
If it was a lie
It would be the biggest story you've ever told

If it was a drink
It would be a strong one
If it was a sad song
It would be a long one
If it was a color
It would be a deep deep blue
But if we're talking about a heartache
It would be you

If it was a color
It would be a deep deep blue
But if we're talking about a heartache
It would be you

No Man In His Wrong Heart lyrics - gary allan

On the inside flap of a matchbook cover
She made me the kind of offer
That no man in a weak state could outrun
I tried to think what a gentleman would say
Turnin' that kind of opportunity away
I tried my best to tell her I'm not the right one
Like no man in his wrong heart would've done

I said no ma'am
Like no man would've said if he wasn't in love
With you the way I am
It could've been easy for me to be a gooner
But something a whole lot stronger made me run
Like no man in his wrong heart would've done.

Didn't want her to think that I wasn't flattered
Her interest in me, believe me it mattered
So I dropped several quarters in the old jukebox
I said I want you to dance all night on me
In a lucky man's arms
Whoever he might be
Then I hit that door like I was shot from a gun
Like no man in his wrong heart would've done

Don't Leave Her Lonely Too Long lyrics - gary allan

Well my friend you ask me what to do
If I were you, and feeling blue
I know inside that you still care
You want her here, but she's out there

Don't leave her lonely too long
'Cause she'll be gone, gone, gone
Don't leave her lonely too long
'Cause she'll be gone, gone, gone

You still have time to change her mind
She needs to know, the way you feel
And there could be no better time
You've got to show her your love is real

Don't leave her lonely too long
'Cause she'll be gone, gone, gone
Don't leave her lonely too long
'Cause she'll be gone, gone, gone

There's strangers waiting in line
To take your place and leave you behind
And then too late you'll change your mind
Your heart will break a million times

Don't leave her lonely too long
'Cause she'll be gone, gone, gone
Don't leave her lonely too long
'Cause she'll be gone, gone, gone
She'll be gone, gone, gone

I'll Take Today lyrics - gary allan

Yeah, she's the one
The one I told you all about
Yeah, it was serious, but it was long ago
She just might walk over here
And give me a kiss for old times
But don't you worry dear
Old times, next to you, can never come close

I'll take today over yesterday, anyday
I'll take lyin' in your arms tonight
Over and above any love, I've known
Memories may find me, but they'll always be behind me
I'll take today over yesterday, anyday

I'd be lyin' if I tried to tell you now
That I never loved her
And she doesn't ever cross my mind
But that was yesterday, and baby, I don't wanna go back
Here is where I'm gonna stay
With you in each tomorrow of my life

I'll take today over yesterday, anyday
I'll take lyin' in your arms tonight
Over and above any love, I've known
Memories may find me, but they'll always be behind me
I'll take today over yesterday, anyday

Memories may find me, but they'll always be behind me
I'll take today over yesterday, anyday

I Ain't Runnin' Yet lyrics - gary allan

I've come to see it's a pattern with me
To make a fast getaway
Everytime I get a little too near to love
Somebody gets too close
The next thing I know
I'm up and gone again
Chasin' the wind and the distant stars above

Ah girl
But I don't know what's been goin' on
Since the night we met
All I know is
I ain't runnin' yet

Girl I can see when you look at me
You're lookin' for a sign
That somewhere in this heart of mine there's a place for you
But I want you to know
When those feelings show
That's what chases me away
But tonight I just gotta stay and see this through

Ah girl
But I don't know what's been goin' on
Since the night we met
All I know is
I ain't runnin' yet

I ain't runnin' away from the love I see so deep in your eyes
I ain't runnin' away and I can't even say just why
Oh I don't know what's been going on since the night we met
All I know is I ain't runnin' yet

I ain't runnin' away from the love I see so deep in your eyes
I ain't runnin' away and I can't even say just why
Oh I don't know what's been going on since the night we met
All I know is I ain't runnin' yet

Girl I don't know what's been goin' on
Since the night we met
All I know is
I ain't runnin' yet

She Loves Me, She Don't Love You lyrics - gary allan

Well, I can see you're dancing every dance with her
And it seems to me you're dancing much too close to her
When you're sitting at our table you're sitting next to her
But my heart knows that it's true that she loves me, she don't love you

Well let me tell you friend I'm wise to your lies
Even telling me that I'm the guy for her
And every little thing that you do and say
Has given me the way you're in love with her

Well just one more dance with her
And friend you're gonna see
What it's like to hit the floor
And do a little dance with me
So here's your coat and here's your hat
I think you'd better leave
'Cause she just told me it's true
She loves me, she don't love you

Well let me tell you friend I'm wise to your lies
Even telling me that I'm the guy for her
And every little thing that you do and say
Has given me the way you're in love with her

Well just one more dance with her
And friend you're gonna see
What it's like to hit the floor
And do a little dance with me
So here's your coat and here's your hat
I think you'd better leave
'Cause she just told me it's true
She loves me, she don't love you

So here's your coat and here's your hat
I think you'd better leave
'Cause she just told me it's true
She loves me, she don't love you

I've Got A Quarter In My Pocket lyrics - gary allan

I've got a quarter in my pocket
Won't you tell me what I should do
Should I put it in the phone
So I can come crawling home to you
Or should I put it in the jukebox
And play another heartbreak song
I'm leaning towards the latter
And I really hate being alone

Gonna flip it in the air
Gonna watch it fly
If it's heads I might love again
If it's tails I'll cry

I've got a quarter in my pocket
Won't you tell me what I should do
Should I put it in the phone
So I can come crawling home to you
Or should I put it in the jukebox
And play another heartbreak song
I'm leaning towards the latter
And I really hate being alone

Here I am again
On the same ol' stool
With the same ol' question
And the mind of a fool

I've got a quarter in my pocket
Won't you tell me what I should do
Should I put it in the phone
So I can come crawling home to you
Or should I put it in the jukebox
And play another heartbreak song
I'm leaning towards the latter
And I really hate being alone

Well I've got a quarter in my pocket
And I really hate being alone

Baby I Will lyrics - gary allan

If he don't dream 'bout you night after night
If you don't think that he's treatin' you right
If he don't worship the ground that you walk on
It's easy to see somethin's wrong

I can't stand to see you cry
Over love that just ain't real
If he don't love you
Baby I will

If he don't whisper sweet words in your ear
Things a good woman loves to hear
Why can't you see what he's puttin' you through
How long can your heart beat feelin' so blue

I can't stand to see you cry
Over love that just ain't real
If he don't love you
Baby I will
Baby I will

I can't stand to see you cry
Over love that just ain't real
If he don't love you
Baby I will
Baby I will
Baby I will

Red Lips, Blue Eyes, Little White Lies lyrics - gary allan

Red lips, blue eyes and little white lies
Oh darlin' I'm a fool for you
Hey darlin' why can't you can be true

Red lips, blue eyes and sweet disguise
Oh darlin' the things you put me through
Your little white lies are breaking my heart in two

You come around and tell me that you love me so
You take a little loving then you say you gotta go
I know he's waiting for you on the other side of town
Well I'm a fool to love you baby 'cause I know you're messing around

Red lips, blue eyes and little white lies
Oh darlin' why can't you be true
I'm crazy to love you baby you know I do, yeah

Sooner or later you'll have to face the truth
Little white lies will catch up with you
With nowhere to run and no where to hide
And no one to love you there by your side

Red lips, blue eyes and little white lies
Oh darlin' the things you put me through
But your little white lies are gonna catch up with you
Oh your little white lies are gonna catch up with you
Baby your little white lies are gonna catch up with you

It Took Us All Night Long To Say Goodbye lyrics - gary allan

It only took a minute for us to finally end it
I guess we'd seen it comin' for some time
And it only took one hour to sit and talk it over
But it took us all night long to say goodbye

Now the flame is gone I know
And the ashes have grown cold
And the love we had we'll never have again
But there's one ember left that must have never died
'Cause it took us all night long to say goodbye

Too many tears have fallen, too many dreams were broken
And holdin' on would be a waste of time
But sometimes I know I'll wonder if it was really over
'Cause it took us all night to say goodbye

Now the flame is gone I know
And the ashes have grown cold
And the love we had we'll never have again
But there's one ember left that must have never died
'Cause it took us all night long to say goodbye

There's one ember left that must have never died
'Cause it took us all night long to say goodbye

Forgotten, But Not Gone lyrics - gary allan

Her birthday came and went without a card, or a single I love you
On their anniversary she sat all alone at a table set for two
She tries her best to please him, but she never hears one single word of praise
She feels just like a stranger, in a home where love has seen its better days

Well he's taken her for granted
God only knows why she keeps hangin' on
'Cause it's better to be gone, but not forgotten
Than to be forgotten, but not gone

Somehow he can't remember, when he's late to even take the time to call
And even on the nights he's there she gets the feeling he's not there at all
She's become a prisoner in that big old house where sweet love used to be
Well, it's not even over but Lord she feels just like a memory

Well he's taken her for granted
God only knows why she keeps hangin' on
'Cause it's better to be gone, but not forgotten
Than to be forgotten, but not gone

'Cause it's better to be gone, but not forgotten
Gone, but not forgotten
Than to be forgotten, but not gone
