Circle Dance

I dont' know why it should be so hard
Givin' up this circle dance
Worn out steps from long ago
don't give love a chance
It's a bitter heirloom handed down
these twisted parts we play
I'm not her and you're not him
It just comes out that way
Can't go back to make things right
(though I) wish I'd understood
time has made things clearer now
We did the best we could
I'll be home soon, that's what you'd say
And a little kid believes

After a while I learned that love
Must be a thing that leaves
I tried so ahrd just to hold you near
Was as good as I could be
Even when I had you here
You stayed so far from me
Can't go back to make things right
(though I) wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer now
You did the best you could
Now that this has occurred to me
I just wanted you to know
I've been too faithful all my life
It's time to let you go

Best Old Friend

Fate is mighty cruel
Where true love is concerned
It seems you give out more
Than you ever have returned
Lately I have tried
To make it on my own
Another nite has passed
Looks like I'm bound to be alone
Bound to be alone

Now solitude is fine
When you really need it
When your soul is dry
Sometimes loneliness can feed it
When you need a lover
You know there's nothin' else will do
When you need love most
You know it turns it's back on you

Oh, I can make it thru without your company
I only wish I knew why you won't comfort me
I thot that I could count on you
To hear me cryin' out
I guess that's one comfort
I will learn to do without

Fallin love too easily
But never quite so fast
So you are not the first and, lord
You sure won't be the last
The thing about the situation
That makes me feel so sad
I could've been the best old friend
That you have ever had
I could've been the best old friend
That you have ever had

Women Be Wise

Women be wise, keep your mouth shut, don't advertise your man
Don't sit around gossiping, explaining what your good man really can do
Some women nowadays, Lord they ain't no good
They will laugh in your face, Then try to steal your man from you
Women be wise, keep your mouth shut, don't advertise your man

Your best girlfriend, she might be a highbrow, she changes clothes 3 times a day
What do you think she's doing now, while you're so far away
She's loving your man in your own damn bed
You better call for the doctor, mama, try to investigate your head
Women be wise, keep your mouth shut, don't advertise your man

Women be wise, keep your mouth shut, don't advertise your man
Don't sit around, girl, telling all your secrets,
Telling all those good things he really can do
If you talk about your baby, you tell me he's so fine
Lord honey, I just might sneek up and try to make him mine
Women be wise, keep your mouth shut, don't advertise your man

Don't be no fool, don't advertise your man (baby don't do it)

Feeling Of Falling

Sometimes I miss that feeling of falling
Falling on over the ledge
You know I miss that feeling of falling
Falling on over the ledge
And when my mind it gets to worryin'
And I just can't get no rest
Oh Baby, that's when I call you up instead
It's after midnight baby, I'm sittin' here all alone
I tried to call your number baby,
but you weren't at home
I been a good girl baby, through with all that mess
But the way I'm feelin' now, darlin'
Well it scares me half to death
Well I miss that feelin', of fallin'
on over the ledge
That summer night in Texas, baby
Too hot and wet to sleep
I heard you pull up in the distance
You're comin' to get me relief
We went screamin' down the highway, baby
So much faster than we should
You pulled me over in the moonlight
Man, I still can feel that hood
Well I miss that feeling of fallin',
on over the ledge
When that rain starts baby, I want to take a real
Good look at that ledge
It ain't something you get over
You might think you made it through
You can turn your head and walk away
But it never takes it's eyes off you
It'll push your foot right through the floorboard
Make you cut them streamers down his back
You waste what's precious and you can't afford
It runs your life right off the track
Keeps you boilin' in that poison
Only the truly twisted know so well
You don't need drugs to show you heaven, baby
'cause there's plenty clean in hell
That miss that feelin' of fallin'
of fallin' on over the ledge
When the blues start callin' I want to crawl way up close to the ledge.

Green Lights

Any old time
You got your tuned in
Baby by your side
And your pretty little cool ride
It feels so good
You got the top pulled in
Wind in your hair
Destination you don't care

Now move it on up
You know it's steerin' all rite
Foot's to the floor
But you think that you can domore
Wind shield clean
And the nite is so brite
Baby so near
And She's givin' you a green lite

Great sound on the radio
She feels something
Now you know there's no place that you'd rather be

Great sounds..

Any old time
You got your tuned in
Baby by your side
And your pretty little cool ride

The Bed I Made

All the ways I cared for you
Are working like you want them to
As I break down and you stay strong
I write my own forgiveness song

I try to lie down and sleep it off like a drug
But it's not your concern
Another night and it's only right
I toss and I turn in the bed I made

The wine dark room, the flashing eyes
That hung me from my string of lies
You said you were numb from wondering
I guess I wasn't listening

I try to lie down and sleep it off like a drug
But you're not concerned
Another night and it's only right
That I toss and I turn in the bed I made

With my own hands
I fashioned this frame
And into the wood
I carved out my name

I try to lie down and sleep it off like a drug
But you're not concerned
Another night and it's only right
That I toss and I turn in the bed I made

And it's only right
That I toss and I turn in the bed I made
The bed I made

Slow Ride

Feels like nothin happens fast enough
Well maybe I just want too much
But when something's wrong between us, Baby
Nothin feels right.

I think it's time we cleared the air
Take a long drive far away somewhere
Tell me everything you feel inside
We got nothin but time.

Slide over, Baby
Here by my side
I wanna take you on a Slow Ride
On a Slow Ride.

Your history shows on your face
Yeah, you've been hurt you've been betrayed
Now we can't change the past, but we can
Leave it behind.

We'll forget about tomarrow, Baby
We'll just steal away into the night
And we'll just be two shadows, Darlin'
In the dashboard light.

Slide over, Baby
Here by my side
I wanna take you on a Slow Ride
On a Slow Ride.

Real Man

Donít want no secret agent
Donít need no long Cadillac
I donít want nobody with no problems
I donít need a man with a monkey on his back

I want a real man
I said, ďA real manĒ
I need a real man
Ainít messing with no toy
I donít need no baby boy

Donít need to send me no flowers, babe
Sending flowers is real nice
Way Iíve been feeling, my hearts been a-reeling
I need a man that loves me once
I want a man that loves me twice

Itís a sticky situation, babe
Keep me up late at night
Honey, donít know the difference
Wanna go left when you shoulda gone right

I want a real man
I said, ďA real manĒ
I need a real man
Iíve been around the world
Iím a woman not a girl

I donít want to million dollars
I donít need no diamond ring
You can twist and shout
For to knock yourself out
I donít care about material things

I want a real man
I need a real man
I want a real man
I said, ďA real manĒ

I want a real man
I need a real man, baby
I want a real man
I want a real man
Real man

Ainít messing with no toy
I donít need no baby boy
Iíve been around the world
Iím a woman not a girl
Real man

I said, ďA real manĒ
I want a real man
Got a real man, real man
Real man
