Prayin For Daylight
                                             (Steve Bogard/Rick Giles)
                                             I've got the lights turned up
                                             The door is locked, the bedroom TVs on
                                             Doing the only thing that gets me through the night
                                             Since youve been gone
                                             
                                             Prayin for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
                                             So I can act like my whole life aint going wrong
                                             Baby come back to me, I swear Ill make it right
                                             Dont make me spend another lonely night
                                             Prayin for daylight
                                             
I
                                             made a bad miscalculation
                                             Betting you would never leave
                                             Cause if youre getting on with your new life.
                                             Then where does that leave me
                                             
                                             Prayin for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
                                             So I can act like my whole life aint going wrong
                                             Baby come back to me, I swear Ill make it right
                                             Dont make me spend another lonely night
                                             Prayin for daylight
                                             
                                             Prayin for daylight
                                             Hoping that I didnt wait too long
                                             That this is just the dark before the dawn
                                             
                                             Deep in my heart I know
                                             That you love me as much as I love you
                                             And that you must be lying somewhere
                                             Looking up to Heaven too
                                             
                                             Prayin for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
                                             So I can act like my whole life aint going wrong
                                             Baby come back to me, I swear Ill make it right
                                             Dont make me spend another lonely night
                                             Prayin for daylight
                                             
                                             Prayin for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
                                             So I can act like my whole life aint going wrong
                                             Baby come back to me, I swear Ill make it right
                                             Dont make me spend another lonely night
                                             Prayin for daylight
This Everyday Love
                                             (Danny Wells/Gene Nelson)
                                             
                                             Cant get enough of this everyday love
                                             Cant get enough of this everyday love
                                             
                                             Each morning the sun shines through my window
                                             Lands on the face of a dream come true
                                             I shuffle to the kitchen for my coffee
                                             And catch up on the front page morning news
                                             Then she walks up behind me and throws her arms around my neck
                                             Just another normal thing Ive come to expect
                                             
                                             Its ordinary plain and simple
                                             Typical, this everyday love
                                             Same ol, same ol keeping it new
                                             Emotional, so familiar
                                             Nothing about it too peculiar
                                             Oh, but I cant get enough
                                             Of this everyday love
                                             
                                             Every afternoon I make a phone call
                                             Listen to the voice that warms my heart
                                             I drag myself through a few more hours
                                             Then head on home to try and beat the dark
                                             Her smile will be right there when I step through that door
                                             And it will be there tomorrow, just like everyday before
                                             
                                             Its ordinary plain and simple
                                             Typical, this everyday love
                                             Same ol, same ol keeping it new
                                             (Same ol/This everyday love)
                                             Emotional, so familiar
                                             Nothing about it too peculiar
                                             Oh, but I cant get enough
                                             Of this everyday love
                                             
                                             Wouldnt change one single thing about it
                                             No, its run-of-the-mill, still I cant live with-out it
                                             
                                             Its ordinary plain and simple
                                             Typical, this everyday love

While You Loved Me
                                             (Kim Williams/Marty Dodson/Danny Wells)
                                             
                                             If I ever write the story of my life
                                             Dont be suprised if youre where it begins
                                             Girl, Id have to dedicate every line on every page
                                             To the memories we made, while you loved me
                                             
                                             I was born the day you kissed me
                                             And I died inside the night you left me
                                             But I lived, oh how I lived
                                             (I lived) While you loved me
                                             
                                             Id start with chapter one, love innocent and young
                                             As the morning sun on a new day
                                             Even though I know the end, Well Id do it all again
                                             Cause I got a lifetime in, while you loved me
                                             
                                             I was born the day you kissed me
                                             And I died inside the night you left me
                                             But I lived, oh how I lived
                                             (I lived) While you loved me
                                             
                                             I was born the day you kissed me
                                             And I died inside the night you left me
                                             But I lived, oh how I lived
                                             (I lived) While you loved me
                                             
                                             I was born the day you kissed me
                                             And I died inside the night you left me
                                             But I lived, oh how I lived
                                             (I lived) While you loved me
                                             
                                             
                                             See Me Through
                                             (Gary Levox/Bruce Miller/Eddie Schwartz)
                                             
                                             Before we met I was free
                                             I never had to worry about anyone but me
                                             Now that boy is gone and in his place
                                             Is a man who needs to hold you night and day
                                             So if I stumble, if I fall
                                             Forgive me, Im just learning as I go along
                                             
                                             See me through, see me through
                                             This aching heart has come so far
                                             To be with you, see me through
                                             With angel eyes, just look inside
                                             At all thislove I never want to lose
                                             See me through
                                             
                                             I know sometime I let you down
                                             But Im still getting used to having you around
                                             And if I ever make you cry
                                             Theres nothing I wont do to make things right
                                             Im not perfect and thats for sure
                                             A little time is all Im asking for
                                             
                                             See me through, see me through
                                             This aching heart has come so far
                                             To be with you, see me through

One Good Love
                                             (Annie Roboff/Marcus Hummon)
                                             
                                             One good love
                                             Erases all the bitter tears on an empty dance hall
                                             All those lonely nights when she never called
                                             It just dont seem so tragic after all
                                             With one good love
                                             
                                             One good love
                                             And daddys hands were strong and fair
                                             And momma understands because shes been there
                                             And all mistakes were just because they cared so much
                                             With one good love
                                             
                                             One good love
                                             You bless all my memories
                                             You soften the fall of my tears
                                             And in my arms youre more than enough
                                             Youre one good love
                                             
                                             Hey, youre one good love
                                             Yeah, youre one good love
                                             
                                             One good love
                                             You bless all my memories
                                             You soften the fall of my tears
                                             And in my arms youre more than enough
                                             Youre one good love
                                             
                                             One good love
                                             And born again means more than pass the plate and bow your head
                                             Yes, you bury what needs burying, you raise it from the dead
                                             The very best, you heal the brokenness, give grace to everyone
                                             With one good love

                                             In your dreams at night
                                             
                                             Tell me that you wake up crying
                                             And youre not sure exactly why

                                             That youve waited all your life to see
                                             That you want so badly to believe
                                             Tell me that its not just me

                                             Standing in the pouring rain
                                             At a loss for words and running out of time
                                             I said this crazy thing (crazy thing), I said
                                             
                                             Tell me that you live for love
                                             That forever is never enough
                                             That youve waited all your life to see
                                             That you want so badly to believe

                                             Hold me now and tell me that you do believe
                                             In a soul, a soul mate
                                             And tell me, and tell me, tell me
                                             
                                             Tell me that you live for love
                                             That forever is never enough

                                             That you want so badly to believe
                                             Tell me that its not just me

                                             I was tired of waiting
                                             Every night was praying

                                             I grew so impatient, how long would it take

From Time To Time
                                             (Rich Alves/Bill Rice)
                                             
                                             From time to time I have regrets
                                             For all the tings I didnt say
                                             That were on my list
                                             From time to time my memory slips
                                             But youre the one thing in my life
                                             I wont forget
                                             
                                             Therell never be minute of the day
                                             I wont think of you
                                             My feelings are so strong in me
                                             I feel it through and through
                                             Therell never be a night thats so dark that we wont shine
                                             Or a dream that weve lost that we cant find

                                             Therell never be a night thats so dark that we wont shine
                                             Or a dream that weve lost that we cant find
                                             Youll always be, oh the one for me
                                             I think of you from time to time
                                             And in between
                                             
                                             Youll always be, oh the one for me
                                             I think of you from time to time
                                             And in between
                                             Oooo, yeah
                                             
                                             Long Slow Beautiful Dance
                                             (Kevin Fisher/Fred Wilhelm)
                                             
                                             Sounds like a scene from the silver screen
                                             Yeah, thats how it was
                                             Love doenst always look like a picture perfect storybook
                                             Ah, but sometimes it does
                                             
                                             Standing beside her the stars shined even brighter
                                             And for a moment all the world was, all the world was still
                                             I knew we belonged together the moment my eyes met hers
                                             And I thought nothing last forever, but maybe this one will
                                             
                                             A deep breath and baby steps
                                             thats how the whole thing starts
                                             Its a long slow beautiful dance
                                             To the beat of a heart
                                             
                                             The world starts to spin again, you learn things you didnt know then
                                             Feels like the bloom is off the rose
                                             But you weather a few storms and you pull out a few thorns
                                             And together the garden grows and grows
                                             
                                             A deep breath and baby steps
                                             thats how the whole thing starts
                                             Its a long slow beautiful dance
                                             To the beat of a heart
                                             
                                             Its a long slow beautiful dance
                                             
                                             The house is filled with so much love
                                             We got more than enough for two
                                             So weve been thinking about having a baby
                                             I know it sounds crazy, but it seems like the natural thing to do
                                             
                                             Im Movin On
                                             (Phillip White/Vincent Williams)
                                             
                                             I've dealt with my ghosts and faced all my demons
                                             Finally content with a past I regret
                                             Ive found you find strength in your moments of weakness
                                             For once Im at peace with myself
                                             Ive been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
                                             Im movin on
                                             
                                             Ive lived in this place and I know all the faces
                                             Each one is different but theyre always the same
                                             They mean no harm but its time that I face it
                                             Theyll never allow me to change
                                             But I never dreamed home would end up where I dont belong
                                             
                                             Im movin on
                                             At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
                                             And I know theres no guarentees, but Im not alone
                                             There comes a time in everyones life
                                             When all you can see are the years passing by
                                             And I have made up my mind that those days are gone
                                             
                                             I sold what I could and packed what I couldnt
                                             Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
                                             Ive loved like I should but lived like I shouldnt
                                             I had to lose everything to find out
                                             Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
                                             Im movin on

THESE DAYS
Steve Robson, Danny Wells, Jeffrey Steele

Hey baby, is that you
Wow, your hair got so long
Yeah, yeah I love it, I really do
Norma Jean, aint that the song wed sing
In the car driving downtown
Top down, making the rounds
Checking out the bands on Doheny Avenue

Yeah, life throws you curves
But you learned to swerve
Me, I swung and I missed
And the next thing you know, Im reminiscing
Dreaming old dreams
Wishing old wishes
Like you would be back again

Chorus
I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I head off to my job, guess not much has changed
Punch the clock, head for home, check the phone just in case
Go to bed, dream of you
Thats what Im doing these days
Yeah, thats what Im doing

Someone told me after college
You ran off to Vegas
You married a rodeo cowboy
Wow, that aint the girl I knew
Me, Ive been a few places
Mostly here and there once or twice
Still sorting out life but Im doing alright
Yeah, its good to see you too

Well hey girl youre late
And those planes, they dont wait
But if you ever come back around
This sleepy old town
Promise me youll stop in
To see an old friend
And until then

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then

(Fade)

TOO GOOD IS TRUE
Jay DeMarcus, Danny Orton

I guess its cause and effect
Your heart and mine
The way that we connect
Keeps blowing my mind
There you go again, it never ends
What you do to me

Chorus
That I have seen the light of day
Love is finally going my way
Is it too good to be true
Give me one more kiss, one more touch
Baby, I just cant get enough of you
This time, too good is true

All of a sudden
Im not who I used to be
I had my heart locked
But you held the key
And you find a way, everyday
To show me even more

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Some people say were too good to be true
But they dont get to be loved by you

(Repeat Chorus)

Oh this time, too good is true
Yes it is, yeah


I MELT (Lyrics)
Gary Levox, Neil Thrasher, Wendell Mobley

When you light those candles
Up there on that mantle, setting the mood
Well, I just lie there staring
Silently preparing to love on you
Well, I can feel the heat from across the room
Aint it wild what a little flame can make you wanna do

Chorus
I melt every time you look at me that way
It never fails, anytime, any place
This burn in me is the coolest thing Ive ever felt
I melt

Dont know how you do it
I love the way I lose it, every time
Whats even better
Is knowing that forever youre all mine
The closer you get, the more my body aches
One little stare from you is all it takes

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

Every time you look at me that way
I melt, I melt


MAYBERRY (Lyrics)
Arlos Smith

Sometimes it feels like this world is spinning faster
Than it did in the old days
So naturally, we have more natural disasters
From the strain of a fast pace
Sunday was a day of rest
Now, its one more day for progress
And we cant slow down cause more is best
Its all an endless process

Chorus
(Well) I miss Mayberry
Sitting on the porch drinking ice-cold cherry Coke
Where everything is black and white
Picking on a six string
Where people pass by and you call them by their first name
Watching the clouds roll by
Bye, bye

Sometimes I can hear this old earth shouting
Through the trees as the wind blows
Thats when I climb up here on this mountain
To look through Gods window
Now I cant fly
But I got two feet that get me high up here
Above the noise and city streets
My worries disappear

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Sometimes I dream Im driving down an old dirt road
Not even listed on a map
I pass a dad and son carrying a fishing pole
But I always wake up every time I try to turn back

(Repeat Chorus)

Bye, bye
(I miss Mayberry, I miss Mayberry)

(Fade)


LOVE YOU OUT LOUD (Lyrics)
Brett James, Lonnie Wilson

I have always been a little shy
Ive always been the quiet type till now
And I never let my feelings show
I never let anybody know
Just how much I was so deep in love
But now that youre in my arms

Chorus
Im gonna stand on a rooftop, climb up a mountaintop
Baby, scream and shout
I wanna sing it on the radio, show it on a video
Baby, leave no doubt
I want the whole world to know just what Im all about
I love to love you out loud

You keep bringing out the free in me
What you do to my heart just makes me melt
And I dont think I can resist
But Ive never been one to kiss and tell
A love this true cant be subdued
So Im gonna let out a yell

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Baby, I want the whole world to see
Just how good your love looks on me

(Repeat Chorus)

Baby, I love to love you out loud
Yeah, I love to love you out loud


DRY COUNTY GIRL (Lyrics)
Marcus Hummon, Chuck Jones

A tall drink of water in a cotton dress
That preachers daughter, she sure is blessed
As sunlight passes through the fabric so soft
You can imagine what goes through my thoughts
She says there`ll be time for all of that
When my dress is white and your suit is black

Chorus
There`s so many fish in the sea
And I know its a great big world
But I couldnt help but fall in love so hard
For my dry county girl
For my dry county girl, yeah

Its widely known that I have my flaws
While shes the Joan of Arkansas
Her lips wont touch the demon wine
But her eyes are full of pure moonshine
And I get drunk just holding her hand
I get high thinking I could be her man

(Repeat Chorus)

For my dry county girl
Lord, I fell so hard
For my dry county girl
For my dry county girl, yeah
Yeah, talking about my

(Fade)

LIKE I AM (Lyrics)
Joe Don Rooney, Danny Orton

Lying here with you
I watch you while you sleep
The dawn is closing in
With every breath you breathe

I can feel the change
The change youve made in me
But will I ever see
All the things you see in me

Chorus
When you say that Im one of a kind
Baby, I dont see it but you believe
That Im so strong and true, I promise you
Ill try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

When it comes to love
I may not know the rules
But theres one thing I know
My heart belongs to you, just you

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
You show me you love me
With a fire that burns deep inside

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

- I am
Ill never understand
I dont think Ill ever understand
Why you love me
Why you love me just like I am

(Fade)

YOU (Lyrics)
Brad Crisler, James LeBlanc

Chorus
Every road that Ive been down
The only truth that I have found
Theres only one thing I cant live without
You

I was searching for something I thought I would never find
Losing my mind
In and out of bad love, I thought I was born to lose
Then came you
I thought I knew what the real thing was
But nothing shakes me like your love does
Ive been hypnotized
Now I realize

(Repeat Chorus)

Every time I get lost in a temperamental mood
You still stay cool
Just when I think that this life`s about to drive me insane
You take the reins
Every time I feel Im drifting off course
Youre my compass, youre my one true north
In a mixed up world
You make sense to me girl

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Yeah, every road girl
Leads me to you
And baby, thats all I need to know

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

Every road that Ive been down in my life
Every time I feel Im taking off
Every road that Ive been down in my life
Every road girl, leads me to you
Yes it did, yes it did
Every road girl
Every road leads me to you

(Fade)

FALLIN UPSIDE DOWN (Lyrics)
Derek George, John Tirro

Theres no gravity up here
Its kind of hard to explain
Every time Im holding you
Its like backwards rain - yeah

Chorus
You lift me up like a kite on a string
Like a bird on newfound wings
So high on you, Im floating and flying around
Your love is like fallin` upside down

Youve got me so lightheaded
Its a dizzy mood
Spinning uncontrollably
And gaining altitude

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Look at me
Used to be, I could keep my feet on the ground
When you said you could take me higher
You werent playing around
(You weren`t playing around)

(Repeat Chorus)

SHINE ON (Lyrics)
Gary Levox, Joe Don Rooney, Jay DeMarcus

I was lost in darkness and sinking sand
Well I was barely nothing, a broken man
But you picked up the pieces of my heart in your hand
Then you came and showed to me loves second chance

Chorus
Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Whenever somethings missing
Youre exactly what I need
Your love has shown me the light and now I finally see
So shine on, shine on, shine on me, yeah

Lord knows that Im not perfect but I sure do try
And I see the man that I can be in your eyes
Well there are times I still get lost in yesterday
But you put the past behind me and you light my way

(Repeat Chorus)

Shine on (let your love shine)
Shine on (on me)
Shine all your love on me, yeah
(Your love on me)
Shine all your love on me, yeah

(Repeat Chorus)

Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Wont you keep on shining, yeah
Wont you keep on shining your love
Down on me, baby
Won`t you keep on shining, yeah
Won`t you keep on shining your love
Yeah, youre exactly what I need, baby
Yeah, you are


MY WORST FEAR (Lyrics)
Anthony Smith, Al Anderson

Last night you gave me a kiss
You didnt know it, but I was awake when you did
You were quiet, you were gonna let me sleep
So I just laid there pretending to be
You said some things you didnt know I could hear
And the words I love you never sounded so sincere

Chorus
Its gonna make it hard to tell you that Im leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

This morning I rolled out of bed
Recalling all the sweet things you said
This was the day I was gonna hurt you bad
Called out your name, but you didnt answer back
I searched the house to find out what was wrong
Like a ton of bricks, it hit me you were gone

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
All along I knew that there was something missing
And only one thing left to do
I had to leave behind this life that wed been living
But the only thing that left was you

Second Chorus
It`s gonna make it hard to tell you that I`m leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But being alone is my worst fear
And staying here is my worst fear
