NOT A DAY GOES BY

Show Lyrics

NOT A DAY GOES BY
Our favourite restaurant
A table for two
Talking the night away
So easy with you
You’d climb into the truck
And I’d drive you home
Yeah, we planned our life together
But now I’m alone

CHORUS
And not a day goes by
I don’t look in the mirror
And see a fool
Looking right back at me
Not a day goes by
I don’t fall on my knees
Praying “Take me back to the time
She was mine”

Well you’d made it clear to me
That I was the one
I wanted daughters
You said you’d love a son
But you couldn’t wait forever
For me to commit
And I waited long enough
That you called it quits

CHORUS
Now not a day goes by
I don’t look in the mirror
And see a fool
Looking right back at me
Not a day goes by
I don’t fall on my knees
Praying “Take me back to the time
She was mine”

Well, you called me yesterday
And asked how I was
I tried to lie, but you saw
Right through to my love
We talked for hours
It was just like the past
And you started crying
When I told you at last

CHORUS
That now not a day goes by
I don’t look in the mirror
And see a fool
Looking right back at me
Not a day goes by
I don’t fall on my knees
Praying take me back to the time
You were mine

FINAL CHORUS (shift)
Now not a mile goes by
I’m not closer to you
Same old truck
But this boy’s brand new
Not a mile goes by
I don’t sing out my joy
As I drive back into the time
You’ll be mine
Yeah, you said you’ll be mine again
No more wasting time, no
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine again
I’ll be yours, you’ll be mine
You’ll be mine, I’ll be yours
I’ll be yours, you’ll be mine again
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine again
Yeah


DON’T YOU DARE LET GO

Show Lyrics

DON’T YOU DARE LET GO

She was the one who broke my heart
But I am the fool who walked away
On that day, so long ago
She wasn’t proud of what she’d done
But I was too weak for honesty
On that day, so long ago
We had the kind of love that ages like fine wine
If you have a love like that
Then fight to hold the line
Don’t let go
Oh no, son
Don’t you dare let go
Don’t let go

They had been married five good years
And weathered every single storm
Sent their way, ‘til that day
Standing angry toe-to-toe
Hurtful words and wounded pride
In their way, on that day
Never thinking in that moment love could die
Feeling nothing when you touch
So you decide to let go
I know how
You feel yourself let go
You just let go

They had forgotten I was there
So I spoke a gentle word
To my son, on that day
He turned with anger in his eyes
But I knew the deepest fear inside
Of my son, on that day
He let me lead him from the room so she could cry
And I knew the time had come
To tell him of the time
I let go, oh Lord how,
How I just let go
I just let go

I said, “She was the one who broke my heart
But I am the fool who walked away
On that day, so long ago
She wasn’t proud of what she’d done
But your mother never tried to hide
What’d gone on, and on that day
She took a chance that I was worthy of her love
If you have a woman who would offer you as much
Don’t let go
Oh no, son
Don’t you dare let go
Don’t let go”

FOREVER MIGHT BE NEVER

Show Lyrics

FOREVER MIGHT BE NEVER
Forever might be never
If I don’t make my move
Forever might be how long I’m stuck
If I don’t leave real soon

Well I sat there with my elbows on my knees
And my gaze down at the floor
My grandma sitting across the kitchen table
Like so many times before

Well I’d been telling her how I’d done everything I could
To try to make my marriage work
Cause I knew she’d be the one to back me up
And tell me, Son, no wonder you feel hurt

Well she’d sat there and listened without a word
Just nodding and letting me go on
And now that she started to tell me what she thought
Well I just knew she’d say my wife was wrong

But Grandma said, “Son, a woman has a strong breaking point
In body and in mind
But comes a time we just can’t take no more
And boy, you’re on the line

Now you tell me you’ve been working so hard
And yes, I can see it in your face
But every day you’re gone I watch her
Taking good care of the kids and this place

Well I love you with every beat of my heart
But I know that she does too
So go on in there now and hold her real tight
Cause Son, she’s the woman for you”

And forever might be never
If you don’t change your ways
Forever might be how long you’ll wait
‘Til you see better days
Forever might have been on your lips
When you made all your vows
But forever might be never again
If you don’t hold her now

Forever might be never
If you don’t tame that pride
Forever might be how long you’ll live
With no one by your side
Forever might have been on your lips
When you made all your vows
But forever might be never again
If you don’t hold her now


MEAN STREAK

Show Lyrics

MEAN STREAK

(Verse 1)
Mean-lookin’ alley down at Broadway and Main (Un huh)
Been there before and she’ll be back there again (Okay)
She’s not a hooker, she’s just lookin’ for fun (Alright then)
She carries money and she carries a gun (Say what?)
It’s Broadway Betty with those sweet-lookin’ eyes (Ahhh)
Better be ready boys it’s just a disguise
She got a mean streak

(Chorus)
She got a mean streak, Broadway Betty
Got a mean streak, that Broadway Betty
Such a mean streak, she’s always ready
With a mean streak, Broadway Betty
She got some lovin, “A-Number One”
But you don’t walk away
You run, run, run, yeah

(Verse 2)
Somebody told me that she used to be shy (Un hun)
She wouldn’t even look a man in the eyes (Aww)
And then some guy called Eddie taught her to play (Hmm)
Stole all her money and he’d cheat every day (Boooo!)
When they found Eddie he was missin’ some parts (Oh ohh)
They couldn’t prove it but they noticed the start
Of Betty’s mean streak

CHORUS

(Verse 3)
Well when I met Betty I was singin’ the blues (Aww)
I wasn’t really in a romantic mood (Un hun)
One hour later I was under her spell (Ohhh!)
She promised heaven so I said “Might as well” (Yeah, I get it)
She took me home and showed me all of her games
They start out with pleasure but they end up with pain

CHORUS … ( ending)
She got a mean streak, Broadway Betty
Got a mean streak, that Broadway Betty
Such a mean streak, she’s always ready
With a mean streak, Broadway Betty
She got some lovin, “A-Number One”, yeah
She’s gonna promise you it’s gonna be fun, yeah
But guarantee you as soon as she’s done
That you won’t walk away
You’ll run, run, run
Better watch out boys, here she comes (Oh ohh)

IT’S EASY

Show Lyrics

IT’S EASY

(Verse 1 & 2)

Count all the stars above
Name every one
Enter the darkest night
And turn on the sun

Solve every mystery
Right every wrong
Act like it’s no big deal
You’re gone

Push on a piece of thread
Pull on the air
Try to forget the feeling
Of touching your hair

Don’t see a sign of you
In every face
Find someone else
To take your place

(Chorus)

It’s easy
So easy
It’s so easy
To let you go
It’s easy
So easy
It’s so easy
To let you go

(Verse 3 & 4)

Well I’m not a man of many words
I try to let my actions talk
But obviously I hurt you bad
For you to get up and walk

So I’m down here on my knees now girl
And I pray to God you can hear
Ain’t no day worth waking up
‘Cept to wake and have you near

(Chorus)

Yes, it’s easy
So easy
It’s so easy
To let you go
It’s easy
So easy
It’s so easy
To let you go


FROM THIS WRECK OF LOVE

Show Lyrics

FROM THIS WRECK OF LOVE
I come home to find your suitcase on the bed
You just sitting there, your eyes are red
I sit down and wait for you to find the words
That tell me where we have gone wrong

If I’m honest I’ll admit I’m not surprised
It’s been there quite a while, in your eyes
Every time you said you’re fine, then turned away
I knew a part of you was gone

Well, can we salvage friendship from this wreck of love
Find a way to carry on
Can we salvage friendship from this wreck of love
Well, I don’t know if I’m that strong
No, I don’t know if I’m that strong

Well, you’ve been gone a while and I’m still on my own
Kicking ‘round this house that was a home
Picking up the pieces scattered here and there
A shattered heart, a broken soul

Then I come home to find your note taped to the door
Asking me to please, please call
I take it inside and it’s heavy in my hands
As I sink down against the wall

Well, can we salvage friendship from this wreck of love
Find a way to carry on
Can we salvage friendship from this wreck of love
No, I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong


YOU’RE GONNA LOVE ME

Show Lyrics

YOU’RE GONNA LOVE ME

(Verse 1)
At the county fair
Smiling right at you
But you just look down
Shy boy, you’ve got no clue
What you do to girls
What you do to me
But you’ll soon find out
Oh yeah, I guarantee

(Lift)
You’re gonna hear me say it
And it might be real soon
That I saw the love inside you
Long before you even knew

(Chorus)
You’re gonna love me
Just like I’ll love you
You’re gonna love me
All life long, yeah
It’s what we girls see
Long before you boys lead
You’re gonna love me
All our long life long
Oh yeah
All life long, yeah
Here we go

(Verse 2)
Three weeks go by ’til
Friends help us meet
And when I get you talking
Shy boy, you blush so sweet
But I see that light
Going on inside
Like you feel it too
And suddenly you realize

(Lift 2)
Somebody’s gonna tell you
And it might just be real soon
She saw the love inside you
Long before you even knew

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Six months later by your side
Walking on the beach in the bright moonlight
When you stop and lift my hands to your heart
And tell me what I’ve known right from the start, that

(Chorus)

All life long
All life long, yeah
All our long life long


I GOT HALF A MIND

Show Lyrics

I’VE GOT HALF A MIND

(Verse 1 & 2)
We made every promise
Like new lovers always do
Never cheat, never lie, no
And always be a friend to you

Now you have your lawyer
And of course I have mine, too
And they stand between us
Like a wall we can’t get through

(Chorus)
I’ve got half a mind to pack the whole thing in
Wrap my sorrows up and drown them all in gin
I’ve got half a mind to give you one last call
But I’ve got half a mind, that’s all

I’ve got half a heart to blame it all on you
Play the martyr that’s what cowards always do
I’ve got half a heart that says you’d take my call
But I’ve got half a heart, that’s all

(Verse 3 & 4)
Used to be so easy
We were full of love and hope
Now it’s hard to reach out
With only one hand on the rope

There’s a cold wind howling
There’s a hard rain on the roof
It’s a deep, dark nightmare
Guaranteed we both will lose

(Chorus)

(solo)

(Chorus)
