colors
yesterday i got lost in the circus
feelin’ like such a mess
and now i’m down i’m just, hanging on the corner
i can’t help but reminisce

’cause when you’re gone
all the colors fade
when you’re gone
no new years day parade
you’re gone colors seem to fade

your mama called she said that you’re downstairs cryin’
feelin’ like such a mess
yeah i hear ya, you’re in the background bawlin’
what happened, to your sweet summertime dress

i know we all, we all got our faults
we get locked in our vaults and we stay

when you’re gone
all the colors fade
when you’re gone
no new years day parade
you’re gone
colors seem to fade
colors seem to fade, yeah

black river
whoa, black river
gonna take my cares away
whoa, black river
gonna take my cares away
gonna take my cares, gonna carry my cares, gonna take my cares away
gonna take my cares, gonna carry my cares, gonna take my cares away

whoa, dear savior
gonna take my cares away
whoa, dear savior
gonna take my cares away
gonna take my cares, gonna carry my cares, gonna take my cares away
gonna take my cares, gonna carry my cares, gonna take my cares away

whoa, sweet whiskey, lord (come on)
gonna take my cares away
whoa, sweet whiskey, lord (you’re gone)
gonna take my cares away
gonna take my cares, gonna carry my cares, gonna take my cares away
gonna take my cares, gonna carry my cares, gonna take my cares away

you’re gonna take my bottle, my bible, my mess
you’re gonna take all of my empty and my loneliness
gonna take all of the sadness inside of me
gonna take it all and set me free

whoa, black river, gonna take my cares away

martin sexton

diner
you might have seen one out in minnesota
or maybe down by the sea in sarasota
they were made back in worcester, mass.
of aluminum and bakelite and glass

like a locomotive they were streamlines
and the blueprints were drawn up from a dream of mine
slap ’em up, put ’em on the train
out to michigan up to maine, ah-ooh

you may find a diner down in georgia or
carolina off the twenty by the piggly wiggly
in the country out of waynsboro

or when it’s gettin’ late and rainy out in new york state
you hang a louie off the thru-way
and you go and grab yourself a chesseburger
at the little gem diner, off the six-niner

diner my shiny, shiny love
in the night you’re all i’m thinkin’ of
diner my shiny, shiny love

the cruiser pulls in where the troopers always stop
as we dine over the chrome and formica table top

the cashier she always squints
by the gum and the bowl of mints
she’s tapping her toe
to the dean martin on the consolette
booth service and a cigarette we’re loving it so

side of fries a dollar
or the haddock plate two ninety five
a rootbeer float a pepsi
and be sure to save some room for some apple pie
better make it a-la-mode

diner my shiny, shiny love
in the night you’re all i’m thinkin’ of
diner my shiny, shiny love

dean martin god rest his soul
talkin’ to me from the cereal bowl
there’s a couple from the show me state
knockin’ back a little meatloaf plate
diner my shiny, shiny love
diner my shiny, shiny love
diner my shiny, shiny, shiny love

candy
hey little jail bait
tell me a story
let me bum a smoke and we can chat a while
i wanna see you talk straight
so let me hear your story
before you get off and make your change

you see, lately i’ve found
that there’s hell goin’ round, and honey
you’ve given one big chase to my strain

talkin’ ’bout a woman whose hasn’t felt a day in a while
talkin’ ’bout a woman who just can’t say no
she needs another lover like she needs another dose in her blood
talkin’ ’bout a woman whose name is
candy
she’s so fine
she’s waiting on the backstreet line
like a
lost angel
not long for this world

don’t usually get emotional
don’t usually show my vein she said
only when i sing or when i’m making tracks
sweatin’s just my mean way
to show me where i am
and to tell me where i need to be

and through those eyes
if she wore her disguise
i’d see through it and say
come in from the rain girl

talkin’ ’bout a woman she loves me like a dog loves a bone
talkin’ ’bout a woman i just can’t let go
i need her as my lover like i need another hole in my head
i’m talking ’bout a woman i know
candy
she’s so fine

but she’s shakin’ on that backstreet line
like a loose cannon
ashamed to explode

in the middle of my day
in the night
when will i learn
to let you go
you’re my candy
you’re my
lost angel
not long for this world

raul midon

state of mind
used to sit and worry about the future
worrying about the future don’t change the past
used to think that tomorrow would be better
but now i know that i’m doing the best i can
i’m just a man trying to find the reasons why i stand
took some time to realize that i am what i am

and i wanna be rich, i wanna be happy
and live inside a love that shines bright enough to last a lifetime
i wanna be rich more than a fantasy
ride the winds and climb, cause it’s all a state of mind

wake up in the morning and i turn the pages
don’t understand what’s going down
everybody’s acting so outrageous
it’s gonna take a lot of love to turn things around
i’m just a man trying to find the reasons why i stand
took some time to realize that i am what i am

and i wanna be rich, i wanna be happy
and live inside a love that shines bright enough to last a lifetime
i wanna be rich, more than a fantasy
ride the winds and climb cause it’s all a state of mind

hear people talk about going to heaven
grab a little bit of heaven right here on earth
troubled times lead to healing times
i was sad now i’m feeling fine
it’s the taking and the giving that makes this life worth living,
makes this life worth living
i wanna be rich, i wanna be happy
and live inside a love that shines bright enough to last a lifetime
i wanna be rich, more than a fantasy
ride the winds and fly,
spread your wings and fly
cause its all a state of mind

ride the winds and climb
spread your wings and fly
cause its all a state of mind

keri noble

talk to me
there you are again
i see you all the time
we haven’t really met yet,
but you know, i don’t mind
’cause i think today’s the day
i’m gonna go right up and say to you
would it be alright
if i called you up sometime?

there you go again
i let you get away from me
at least i’ve got more time
to think of what i might say (like)
“couldn’t we be good” (or maybe)
“don’t you think that we should find
some quiet little place where we’d make love all day?”

come and talk to me
what are you waiting for
’cause i can see you passing every day and i’m always wanting more
come and talk to me
what are you gonna do
’cause i can’t seem to get the nerve to get off my own ass
and come and talk to you

you know i love the type
you look like you’ve been up all night
and yet somehow still look beautiful
you do it all at the same time
whenever you walk by
you always look me in the eyes
and in that moment I know
the same thing’s on your mind

it always seems to be that i let the good things pass by
because i let my fear stop me (but not this time)

paolo nutini

last request
slow down, lie down
remember it’s just you and me
don’t sell out, bow out
remember how this used to be

i just want you closer
is that alright
baby let’s get closer tonight

grant my last request
and just let me hold you
don’t shrug your shoulders
lay down beside me
sure i can accept that we’re going nowhere
but one last time let’s go there
lay down beside me

and i’ve found, that i’m bound
to wander down that one way road
and i realize all about your lies
and i’m no wiser than the fool i was before

i just want you closer
is that alright
baby let’s get closer tonight

grant my last request
and just let me hold you
don’t shrug your shoulders
lay down beside me
sure i can accept that we’re going nowhere
but one last time let’s go there
lay down beside me

oh, baby, baby, baby,
tell me how can, how can this be wrong

grant my last request
and just let me hold you
don’t shrug your shoulders
lay down beside me
sure i can accept that we’re going nowhere
but one last time let’s go there
lay down beside me

grant my last request
and just let me hold you
don’t shrug your shoulders
lay down beside me
sure i can accept that we’re going nowhere
but one last time let’s go there
lay down beside me

jenny don’t be hasty (live at bush studios)
you said you’d marry me if i was 23
but i’m one that you can’t see if i’m only 18
tell me who made these rules
obviously not you
who are you answering to

oh, jenny don’t be hasty
no, don’t treat me like a baby
let me take you where you’ll let me
because leaving just upsets me

i’ll be around again to see these other men
they’re more adequate in the age department
i did not think you cared
there’d be no problems here
but now you’re looking at me like you’re disgusted
then i’m definitely waiting for you to smile and change your mind
then i’ll say i’m sorry and i’ll wrap my arms ’round your body
i really hope that you forgive in a hurry
and don’t just ask me to leave

oh, jenny don’t be hasty
no, don’t treat me like a baby
let me take you where you’ll let me
because leaving just upsets me

oh, jenny you are crazy
first i’m perfect, then i’m lazy
and i was calling you my baby
now it sounds like you just left me
and it kills me

oh, jenny don’t be hasty
no, don’t treat me like a baby
let me take you where you’ll let me
because leaving just upsets me

oh, jenny you are crazy
first i’m perfect, then i’m lazy
and i was calling you my baby
now it sounds like you just left me
and it kills me

you said you’d marry me if i was 23
but i’m one that you can’t see if i’m only 18

chet atkins

i still can’t say goodbye
when i was young my dad would say
come on son let’s go out and play
sometimes it seems like yesterday

that i’d climb up the closet shelf
when i was all by myself
grab his hat and fix the brim
pretending i was him

no matter how hard i try
no matter how many tears i cry
no matter how many years go by
i still can’t say goodbye

he always took care of mom and me
we all cut down a christmas tree
he always had some time for me

wind blows through the trees
streetlights they still shine bright
moon still looks the same
but i miss my dad tonight

i walk by a salvation army store
saw a hat like my daddy wore
tried it on when i walked in
still trying to be like him

no matter how hard i try
no matter how many years go by
no matter how many tears i cry
i still can’t say goodbye

queen

who wants to live forever
there’s no time for us
there’s no place for us
what is this thing that fills our dreams
yet slips away from us

who wants to live forever
who wants to live forever

there’s no chance for us
it’s all decided for us
this world is only one sweet moment
set aside for us

who wants to live forever
who dares to love forever

who wants to live forever
when love must die

so touch my tears
with your lips
touch my world
with your fingertips

and we can have forever
and we can have forever
forever is our today

who wants to live forever
who wants to live forever
forever is our today

who waits forever anyway
