Song Lyrics

a bar with no mirrors

she used to be always by my side
no matter where i went, she came along more than lovers, we were best of friends she was my music, and my favorite song

i’m looking for a bar with no mirrors so i can’t see where she used to be
i want to find that bar with no mirrors to hide the emptiness next to me

the man in the mirror was so happy he lived for her the woman of his dreams she always seemed to love his affections why did she leave me down and suffering

chorus

when i find that bar with no mirrors
i won’t have to see her smiling face
i can sit and reflect about my broken heart maybe someday she’ll find me in this place

chorus

to hide the emptiness next to me… in that bar with no mirrors

angels all around you

when grandpa was going off to war, grandma held his hand hugged his neck, shed a tear and whispered in his ear daddy come home to me, please come back to me
now let’s believe and agree, this is what we pray

angels all around you, every second of everyday angels all around you, each time you kneel and pray

when daddy was called to serve, mama cried and held him tight she kissed his face, wiped away the tears and sang to him papa come home to me, please daddy come back to me now let’s believe and agree, this is what we pray

angels all around you, they’ll bring you back home with angels all around, you’ll never be alone

not long ago uncle sam called on me, my little girl was sad but she hugged my neck and said daddy i’m so proud of you she held me tight and said,
daddy now that mommy’s an angel, she’ll bring you back to me daddy now that mommy’s an angel, now let’s believe and agree

chorus 1 & 2

baby don’t

baby don’t want drinkin’ round here, my baby don’t want boozin’ round here she can’t handle alcohol, it don’t bother me at all
baby don’t want smokin’ round here, baby don’t want nicotine round here she don’t smoke, dip or chew, like me since i was in school

i can’t drink, i can’t smoke

no cigars, no rum and coke
at joe’s bar is an empty seat ‘cause baby loves me all sober and sweet

baby don’t want cussin’ round here, my baby don’t want swearin’ round here she never says dern or damn, not like the sailor i am
baby don’t want no cheatin’ round here, baby don’t want two timing round here she don’t fool around or flirt, i don’t chase another skirt

i can’t swear, don’t date online
no saying (electronic beep-one syllable), but shucks is fine my little black book is (electronic beep-two syllables) done ‘cause baby’s number is number one

my baby want‘s lovin’ round here, baby wants romance round here she’s my sexy cocktail everynight, baby does my lovin’ just right

baby gets hugs, baby gets kisses baby don’t let lovin’ go missin’ she’s the reason, i’m straight and true ‘cause baby knows that i love her too

baby loves to boogie

first thing she does is jump outta bed, twisting to elvis, singin’ everything he said makin‘ the coffee she rocks and she rolls
servin’ up the bacon or country ham, she plays air guitar just loves to jam my eggs come flyin‘ but they’re done just right

my baby loves to boogie all day long baby loves to boogie singin‘ them songs she boogies 24 hours a day
my baby loves to boogie all night long ain’t nothin‘ sweeter ain’t nothin‘ wrong i love it when she boogie my way

i got rolling stones or dylan for lunch, she’s cutting a rug a pouring the punch my sandwich tastes good with patsy cline
she struts the fried chicken right off the bone
sings like reba when she answers the phone
she rocks to the kitchen and cuts my cake

chorus

she belts out the classics, country or rock, folk or metal, she goes round the clock when i applaud and yell for more, she boogies my bones ‘til i’m too sore

chorus

i love it when she boogie my way, i love it when she boogie my way i love it when she boogie my way

could i love you more

how your skin glows in the morning light
your hair is tangled but lays just right
breathing so soft like the april rain
as i lay here watching you sleep, i’ll lay here watching you sleep

i ask myself could i love you more could i give you the rest of my heart

can we share a life to explore
i say yes we can, i can love you more and more

when you smile with that twinkle in your eye
you fire up those feelings that i can’t deny
your touch is magic and the spell is cast
and i’ll dream here next to you, i’ll dream here next to you

i ask myself could i love you more
could i give you the rest of my life
could we love like never before
i say yes we can, we can love much more and more

if there’s a miracle for me, i’m holding you right now nothing else on this earth means a thing
i can’t imagine my days and nights without you
i can love you more, more than anything

chorus

i can love you more and more…

every drink is a story

her glass of wine was empty as she talked about his ways

the bartender poured another story called cabernet

she wondered if he’d ever find another love like hers

a glass of red wine spoke of better days

every drink is a story, a life of it’s own
telling memories of heartbreak and joy
pour another shot to help me think
my story is in this drink

his whisky went down as he pondered her leaving

the bartender poured a message from black jack

he talked about her hair, her glow in the mornings

another shot had him wanting her back

chorus

if you see me on a barstool with a shot of tequila

join me with your cocktail of life

we can trade tales of the perfect romance

bartender you can pour us one more chance

when i first saw you, time stood still

i deleted all the lovers that came before

there were none who could compare

i saw our future and so much more

darling, i can be forever in your love
i can hear forever in your sighs
i can feel forever in your arms
baby, i can see forever in your eyes

i’ve given up everything to be with you

time and space will bond us as one

eternity together is all we will need

to make our love brighter than the sun

chorus

when i look at you, the past fades away

i place my soul in your hands to keep

time will stop and the stars can fade

but our love will remain true and deep

chorus

baby, i can see forever in your eyes

galactic love

sitting on my porch with my 6 string crying out

a bright light in the sky made me give a shout

humming and a buzzing, it landed in my field

hoped i was dreaming but i feared it was for real

a door began to open, my heart skipped a beat

there she stood, a goddess, i was glued to my seat

she asked in perfect english did i hear you sing a song

i said it was my tune, was there anything wrong

she said your chorus is too weak, the bridge just falls apart
you’ve over rhymed and over used the organ you call a heart
i will teach you loves universal ways
a night with me among the stars will change your day

she showed me all the planets created by romance

she sang to me her song of love with a sensuous dance

when morning light woke me i began to sing

all about the pleasures galactic love did bring

my guitar cried so sweetly, a song was given birth

as i recalled last night with a goddess not from earth

break

time passes and at night i sing under the stars

hoping she will come again from venus or was it mars

inspiration comes to me, i hear her voice at times

telling me to write the songs she left inside my mind

she said my lyric is poetic the hook is mighty strong
you didn’t rhyme charms and arms in this loving song
remember when i came to you from the stars above
you will write a hit and remember our galactic love

gonna open a bar

trying to be heard for so many years, just couldn’t get a break paying my dues, playing the blues, living on give and take all the rejection, and now in reflection, i see what i must do get my own place, promote my face and play my songs for you

gonna open a bar,
be your cocktail star
play my songs for you, have a long neck or two ‘cause i’m gonna open a bar

tasty libations, and down home music, says the sign on my door pour you a bourbon, while i sing like urban, bet you’ll yell for more i’ll hire a house band, with my songs in demand, this is what i must do open a bar, tune my guitar and share my songs with you

chorus

i’ll play what i wrote, every verse, every note, no one to please but you happy hour all night, we can jam ‘til it’s light, it’s my bar and i’ll party for you i’ll hire a house band, with my songs in demand, this is what i must do open a bar, tune my guitar and share my songs with you

he doesn’t have the heart

when he got the news he bowed his head in silence he journeyed back down the road of no regrets wrestled with his fear, hugged the angels that were near and prayed his time with her will be the best yet
to accept that he’s got a year or less to love her she’ll go on loving him to the end of his world
she has so much love to give, and he wants her to live he can’t share this kind of news with his girl

he doesn‘t have the heart to break hers doesn’t want her to carry his pain
he‘d rather laugh with her than see her crying he doesn’t have the heart to break hers

he won’t watch her endure a slow waitng game she doesn’t need to know when he will go
it’s better that she keeps living and let him keep giving all the love he has left to let her know

chorus

if he told her she’d die a little each day, she’d question her faith and ask why is it selfish to say, to keep her this way, so her love for him will never die

chorus

he doesn’t have the heart to break hers he doesn’t have the heart to break hers

his place

i just came from his place, i know he didn’t see me parked across the road in the black of night
i saw him working on that fifty-six corvette
he gave it to me, hoping it would make things right

i used to call his place, our place
i used to walk with him hand in hand i used to call his place a loving home it still is for another woman’s man

don’t know why i stopped by, curiosity i guesws it’s been forever since i said so long
i wonder if he ever thinks i’ll show up again but after all this time, it would do us wrong

chorus

time has healed the wounds i carried for years now i’ve learned to forgive and stand tall and now i’ve seen his happy life with her i’ll stay a faded memory that’s all

i wonder if he ever thinks i’ll show up again but after all this time, it would do us wrong

sometimes you drive me up the wall, sometimes we squabble and fight but when we get it together, we’re gonna be lovin’ all night
i hear you nagging ‘bout chores, well here’s a list of honey doos
i don’t regret we ever met, but sometimes we sing the blues

baby i love you when we touch, but when we argue, not so much i can’t say who’s right or wrong

baby i like you better, baby i like you better, baby i like you better, when you’re gone

i don’t care for your chihauhau, i’m allegic to your cat we see life a little different, but making love is where it’s at i can’t drive your monster truck, well i can’t stand your s.u.v. we get along together ‘cause we let each other be

chorus

i got my mancave, i love my sheshack, you text me imogees, i send smileys back meet in the kitchen for a bite or two, i find myself making sweet love to you

it only takes a moment

never was a religious man ‘til an angel changed my mind
couldn’t believe a memory would turn me back in time
didn’t know a kiss could change the way i felt inside
all these things escaped me ‘til you silenced my pride

it only takes a moment
one click of the clock, one turn of the lock
a moment for love to heal a soul
a hug in the rain, to turn back the pain
we all need someone to hold, we all need someone to hold

never asked questions ‘til i was told not to speak

can’t say I remembered the pain from week to week

didn’t grasp the need for compassion and giving

all you shared with me, changed my way of living

it only takes a moment
one click of the clock, one turn of the lock
a moment for the past to melt away
sharing a walk, making time to talk
to turn night back into da, yto turn night back into day

so here i am , loving you more than you k now

so here i am , loving you more than i can show

i never knew what real love did ‘til you gave it back to me

i w ant that moment a gainwhen you made my heart see

i was blinded

i was blinded by her beauty, she’s a girl you want to keep

i should’ve remembered what daddy said, that beauty is only skin deep

i was blinded by her talk, you knew she was using me

i know you told me true now baby, i wish my blinded eyes could see

blinded by her looks,
blinded by her grace
blinded by her twisted words,
but you should’ve been in her place

i was blinded by her beauty, she had me acting such a fool

i should’ve seen that you loved me more, i see i was being schooled

i was blinded by her cheating, when i fell on my face

when i saw your sweet, sweet smile, i knew i was in the right place

now i know that you love me, you’ve always been here for me

you took my heart and opened my eyes, baby you’re as beautiful as can be

i was made this way

some people say i’m hard as nails, a few have felt it for real

i try and be just middle of the road, but they say i can’t feel
i don’t go looking for trouble but i do enjoy a rockin’ good time now sometimes things get rowdy, it‘s always wrong place, wrong time

don’t hold it agains me darling, i struggle with demons everyday all i can do is work hard for you, after all, i was made this way

some people question my sincerity, a few have made that mistake

i have always told the honest truth, i ain’t got nothing that is fake i’ve tried to live by the golden rule but some have crossed that line when my motor’s hot, it’s hard to stop they’re dancing on borrowed time

for all the reasons you love me, i’m a better man now than yesterday all i can do is work hard for you, after all, i was made this way

i was made this way and yet you stay, that’s devotion true and deep your honor i’ll protect, harm i’ll deflect, for your love i promised to keep

people say i’m getting better as long as they let me be

i used to do unto others before they could do unto me
i try and see the good in folks and use a kind word or two watch my tongue and shield my ears so i can come home to you

darling keep holding me up, i’ll win this battle day after day all i can do is work hard for you, after all, i was made this way after all, i was made this way

last call before christmas

it’s christmas eve once again, by myself but with friends

we’re all regulars at sheila’s bistro and tap
over the bar hangs a wreath, with a sign just beneath
it says feliz navidad to the world

tree lights twinkle, while we toast kris kringle
the bar is full of holiday cheer
i hear sinatra singing of sleigh bells ringing
it should be the happiest day of the year

we lift a drink to this season, for broken hearts with a reason
to be without a loved one this year
i have no yuletide expectations, just this bar room celebration
last call is all i’m waiting to hear

santa will be calling as snow begins falling
the bar is full of holiday cheer
under mistletoe couples kissing, but there’s one that i’m missing
it’s the loneliest day of my year

sheila pours me a shot, she says i think of you a lot
it’s your last call and it’s on me
it’s closing time for the bar and i don’t live that far
would you come home and share christmas with me

snowflakes are dancing, my heart is romancing
this home is full of holiday cheer
the girl i’ve been missing, is the one that i’m kissing
it’s the happiest night of my year
it’s the happiest night of my year
last call before christmas this year

making love by the light of your smartphone

we used to get all hot & sweaty, getting so worked up & ready.
any place, any time, you’d be all mine, all night rocking steady.

time rolls on, life gets in the way, kids & work, no time to play.
night falls, my libido calls, i’m on instagram i hear you say?

making love by the light of your smartphone
while you’re texting to all your friends
did you snap my pic of lust, it’s on facebook i trust
posting hashtag sex maniac once again

you’re storming the enemy’s gate, you’ll be fighting way past late.
i should come first, that phone is a curse, guess i have to wait

my body used to drive you wild, but now i’m just a video file.
skype when you can, if you want this man, tweet for me awhile.

she rocked my country

i was satisfied playin’ it good
takin‘ care of business, doin’ what i should
classic country was my status quo, until she strutted into my show

she turned my sound upside down she sent my guitar round and round she counted down a different time she rocked my country, that girl of mine

she don‘t mind willie, jones or hank, it’s their music she would thank baby can waltz and two step the best, but she rocks that country east to west

my baby loves to rock, she loves to roll, she’s still my country girl down to her sou

songs i could have wrote

staring down at that glass of red, red wine

drinkin’ with hank williams and patsy cline

feeding the juke box and singing along

to the tunes that should’ve been my songs

songs i could have wrote, every verse and every note
they take me back to when i loved you so
songs i should have wrote, full of sadness and hope
they take me back to when i watched you go

playin’ those golden melodies from the past
listenin’ to the songs that will always last
drinkin’, cheatin’, crazy love and the wrongs
they’re tunes that could’ve been my songs

chorus

in my neon memory of your face

i remember the love i misplaced

dancing with you once again in my mind

to all those songs that stand the test of time

the life i live

getting off work, calling an uber, drinking some beer at the neon moon

and i’m gonna screw… in that bug light on their porch

hitching a ride to the football game, doing shots with the coach’s wife

and i’m gonna screw… on a new sign in the locker room

ain’t nothing like the life i live
i take a little, but i love to give
i give as good as i get
it’s tit for tat and tat for tit

after church i’ll go catfish noodling, grab some bar-b-que with the boys
then i’m gonna screw… on my new vanity plate… it says “uberneck”

ain’t nothing like the life i lead
i take no crap ain’t afraid to bleed
i’ll lend a stranger a helping hand
i salute the flag and take a stand

break

gonna head on back to the neon moon, shoot some 9 ball with the waitress
and i’ll get a screw…driver with extra salt on the rim

ain’t nothing like the life i got
i’ll try things out and take a shot
i cross the t’s and dot the i’s
i keep praying for that lottery prize

there’s a song in here

i’ve seen that look before, he had nothin’ to say
a tear roll down her cheek as he walked away the suit at the end of the bar buys her a drink
a tattered old man sips his gin and gives her a wink

there’s a song or two in here some million sellers sitting near i’ll write ‘em after a few more beers i know there’s a song in here

the bartender’s pretty secret is giving him a show the war hero feeds the jukebox and lights up music row the waitress has somewhere else she’d rather be and the girls night out all singing a drunken melody

chorus

the bar owner tells his story again how his future was taken away when a college star was drafted into a war he fights everyday

chorus

i’ll write this honkytonk biography, these stories i know so well now you can see, it’s so close to me, it’s part of my life to tell

too much together

you’re amazing, so beautiful, you finish what i’m thinking

you’re smart and oh so crazy, so full of life and happy

everything i wanted, all that i need, you complete me darling…

can’t get enough of you

we have too much together and i’m still wanting more
all i do is watch the clock until you’re back again
too much together, my heart’s an open door
i’ll let you in anytime, you know where my love’s been

you’re spiritual, compassionate, support what i’m doing
you’re light and so much fun, so full of love and smiles
everything i wanted, all that i need, you complete me darling…
never get enough of you

chorus

take all of me you need, i’m yours forever, i’ll promise to be always by your side

i’ll share my life with you and no other, come along and be my guide

wonderin’

you’re sin, a sin-sation, sinsational to me
what kind of woman, do you want me to be
i’ve been in, in this place, more than a time or two
but i ain’t never seen, a man quite like you… well

i wonder how you feel about me…
i wonder how you feel next to me…
so much i wanna know, where do i begin
you got me guy… and i’m wonderin’

you’re sin, a sin-sation, sinsational for sure
how much of your lovin’, do you think i could endure
i’ve been in, in this place, more than a time or two
but i ain’t never fell, for a man quite like you

chorus

break over verse

how is it that you tied up my heart, and set my mind on fire
can i do the same for you… will you let me be your desire

you can’t dance

i rolled into san diego from the high sierra plains

hadn’t seen the big city for a couple of years

asked a cabby to take me somewhere pure country

to hear some george strait and have a couple of beers

it was a wanna be dance hall on a friday night

all the people were dressed the same

urban cowgirls, bourbon cowboys all playin’ the mating game

i remember her walkin’ up to me
with the prettiest smile she said what’ll it be
i said a cold beer, a warm heart and a chance
you’re the prettiest girl in the bar and you can’t dance

i stayed all night leanin’ on that rail until closin’ time
watchin’ her work her charm with all around
her name tag said julie, her eyes sparkled like the desert sky
she said i’d love to serve you when you come back to town

chorus

under the stars i’m thinking of her so far away

heading back to san diego, this time i’ll hear her say

i’d like to spend some time with you, and take a chance

on a cold beer, warm heart and a dance

your 2 timing

i heard it from a friend who heard it from you
that you were running ’round with someone new
i guess i looked a little confused, i guess i felt a little bit used

well i found out that it was true
you were running ’round with someone new
i went out and found love a waitin’, there were no questions, no hesitatin’

your two timing is the right timing
’cause i’ve found somebody new
your two timing is the right timing, for me to leave you

i’d never gone looking if you’d been true
i never needed anyone else but you
when i found out that you were cheatin’, i knew my feelings were self-defeatin’

i never thought i’d see the day
when you would lie and cheat me that way
i guess i looked a little confused, i guess i felt a little bit used

chorus

i heard it from a friend who heard it from you
that you were sorry and oh so blue
i bet you looked a little confused, i bet you felt a little bit used

well i found out that it was true
you were kicked out for someone new
i hope you’ve learned and now you see, what a good thing you had with me

chorus

yeah, that’s what you get when you leave a good thing baby… you know i was the best
thing that ever walked through your door. oh i bet the nights are lonely now… you know
my new squeeze is… ha! aw baby!

your jeans look good tonight

boy it’s great to see you again, i’ve missed your body talk
it’s been a long time, you’re looking real fine
i wanna shout it out loud that you’re mine

your denims are fittin‘ real tight
the way you’re dancing makes it right
those levi‘s are inviting, your movements are exciting
baby your jeans look good tonight

boy where have you been, did you miss my lovin’ arms
can i say one thing, just let me sing
about how your lovin’ is king

chorus

back in town, and in my arms, i don’t think i’ll let you go
we’re gonna dance all night, the way you hold me tight
i’m yours boy i can’t say no
i’ll hear you say you’re here to stay, before the morning light
just give me a chance to get close to those pants
and i’ll promise to love you just right

break (over verse)
