I wear my pride like a shirt under my suit Tucked away in shame for none to see But my feelings for you aren’t as easy to subdue And this heart don’t look good on my sleeve I keep my secrets bottled up inside my shoe And they’ll stay right there so I can have some peace But there’s just one that I can’t keep, and it’s made a fool of me ‘Cause this heart don’t look good on my sleeve This heart don’t look good on my sleeve It’s a bloody mess for all the world to see So darling, if you’d please take this heart and set me free ‘Cause this heart don’t look good on my sleeve I wear this hat upon my head to hide my thoughts And these shades to hide the gaze that I keep But I always mess things up ‘Cause my lips just won’t stay shut Lord, this heart don’t look good on my sleeve This heart don’t look good on my sleeve It’s a bloody mess for all the world to see So darling, if you’d please take this heart and set me free ‘Cause this heart don’t look good on my sleeve Yeah darling, if you’d please take this heart and set me free ‘Cause this heart don’t look good on my sleeve

The Tide 03:12
All of the words that I threw at the wind I knew deep down you were listening And all of the times that I said that was it You seemed to see right through me I played the song of your heartstrings And I broke them one by one You tried to think on the good things But I made sure there were none I thought like the tide I could push you away And somehow I’d manage to pull you back in From seconds to moments to hours to days I realized that I’d never have you again Gone are the songs that your heart sing And gone are your shoes by the door I wait listening for the doorbell to ring, But it don’t make a sound anymore Maybe in time I will take all the blame And be the mistake you won’t make again Sometime down the line, Lord I might change my ways But until then I’ll be your cloudy day

She had daddy around her finger She had her friends all fooled She never dreamed that she would play a game Of someone else's rules So she packed her bags and headed West To make it big somehow, someway No one there to tell her But she knew she'd lost her way Standing on a ground of stars She's gaze into the lights Searching for a constellation Beyond the neon signs Above her a lone star shines Calling from miles She's got a west coast smile, but Texas is in her eyes Now there's brand new cars she'll ride in But none to call her own A 4-bedroom beach side condo, But it doesn't feel like home She spends her evenings with her head in a vase To hide the pain away 'Cause daddy never calls her And her friends won't speak her name But he thinks about the girl That stole his heart in school He can't help but wonder if There's something he can do At night, he thinks back to All the times he could have tried She's got a west coast smile, but Texas is in her eyes Standing on a ground of stars She's gaze into the lights Searching for a constellation Beyond the neon signs Above her a lone star shines Calling from miles She's got a west coast smile, but Texas is in her eyes She's got a west coast smile, but Texas is in her eyes She's got a west coast smile, but Texas is in her eyes

I look around this crowded room Of folks that I call friends And hope that I’ll see one more face Before this whole night ends I’m playing all my hopes up like Someday you’ll come on through But I’ll always want what I can’t have If all I want is you I know you’re just a memory That I should best forget But I’m thinking back to times I missed And things I should have said Despite my hopeless fantasies, I know that it’s all through ‘Cause I’ll always want what I can’t have If all I want is you I walk around in circles in My childhood room Thumbing through the annuals I kept from our old school And I see you in that photograph Just like a dream come true But I’ll always want what I can’t have If all I want is you Yeah, I'll always want what I can't have If all I want is you

Arriba, Maria Don’t leave me standing in the rain It ain’t fair to shut the door In the face of a man with much to say ‘Cause if you’d give me some time I know I could make you mine It’s cold here Maria Don’t leave me standing in the rain Andale, my darling Don’t leave me out here all night ‘Cause I won’t leave this doorstep ‘til We make this whole thing right I know it’s not easy to see But you’re doing something to me Andale, my darling Don’t leave me out here all night I said to myself that I’d never let you drive me insane But when you walked on out I knew that I’d never be the same Arriba, Maria Don’t leave me standing in the rain It ain’t fair to shut the door In the face of a man with much to say ‘Cause if you’d give me some time I know I could make you mine Arriba, Maria Don’t leave me standing in the rain ‘Cause if you’d give me some time I know I could make you mine Arriba, Maria Don’t leave me standing in the rain

Stranger 04:00
Just tell me the words yourself There ain’t no reason to lie I’ll handle it somehow Tomorrow will come by Yeah, I know I have this feeling But all I do is hesitate And if I were to try my hand, You’d just be a stranger anyway So let’s not play pretend I’m just one of those guys I’m not what you need now Or until the end of time Don’t mind me, I planned on leaving I’ve got no reason to stay It don’t matter how or why or when You’d still be a stranger anyway Don’t tell me I’m not myself And don't point out a silver line I’ll spend some time around To stay away from my own mind And if it’s love you think you’re feeling Try your best to stay away A couple years or just one stand You’ll just be a stranger anyway

The hour hand gets slower As it inches its way toward five She’s running low on self-control And she’ll lose it all tonight She ain’t looking for a silver lining She ain’t looking to start a fight She’s gonna head for the store on the corner And lock up the house for a while Good Lord, Mary Anne Why don’t you take some time to think? You can’t confide in your worried mind Until it’s filled up to the brink You’ll never face your problems Until you finally break the binge ‘Cause four closed walls and alcohol Are now your only friends She’s got her favorite album spinning And the dial cranked to the right She can’t control her feet, but She ain’t stepping on none tonight For some the night is over But hers has just began ‘Cause the bottle’s getting empty And she’s afraid to go to bed Good Lord, Mary Anne Why don’t you take some time to think? You can’t confide in your worried mind Until it’s filled up to the brink You’ll never face your problems Until you finally break the binge ‘Cause four closed walls and alcohol Are now your only friends Good Lord, Mary Anne Why don’t you take some time to think? You can’t confide in your worried mind Until it’s filled up to the brink You’ll never face your problems Until you finally break the binge ‘Cause four closed walls and alcohol Are now your only friends Yeah, four closed walls and alcohol Are now your only friends

Waiting 04:27
Whenever you're tired I'm exhausted Whenever you're lonely I'm lonely, too Whenever you're frightened I fear for the future 'Cause you're the only one I want to be with to see it through I Want to stay right on your mind Because you'll be on mine All the time And I will be waiting for you Here Is a photograph for you It's the least that I could do And I will be waiting for you Remember the battles Remember the heartache We stood through the bad times As well as the good days And now as we look back Through the family album The past has returned once more But nothing's really changed that much 'Cause I Want to stay right by your side Doesn’t matter, rain or shine I will be waiting for you Here Are some photographs for you They're the least that I could do And I will be waiting for you And you're alone, now I can't hold you tight I can't dry your watered eyes And tell you that you'll be fine I'll always be with you But, not just in 3x5's Memories last longer than that And you were my lifetime Oh, 'cause I wanna stay right on your mind 'Cause you'll be on mine All the time And I will be waiting for you Here Are some memories for you They're the least that I could do And I will be waiting for you here

There are no Goodbyes on the road I've got to go I've got to go Give them a hug A hug for me ‘Cause I've got places I've got to be No I don't I don't hate you at all I'll always remember Our time in that loft Love don’t lie But sometimes, it's cold 'Cause there's no goodbyes No goodbyes on the road I can't go Where you've got to go I'm headed for L.A. And you're headed for the crossroads Don't make no decisions That you will regret Please, for me Don't give up yet I'm gonna find you I'll search like a dog And if I die trying I'll die singing this song I won't say goodbye To this town, oh no 'Cause there's no goodbyes No goodbyes on the road

Atlanta 04:08
I’m playing columns with a stuttered line Just trying to keep from losing my mind A day and some change, it sure can take a toll The coffee can only be brewed so strong Now I’ve gotta keep moving on ‘Cause Atlanta, Georgia’s a mighty long way to go I got eighteen wheels and a full 150 Pulling my carcass through Mississippi At 5 AM, there ain’t much here to see I'm weighted down, but I ain’t too slow I got a clean shot down that old big road Racing toward Atlanta like a refugee Passing another state line sign I went by the stop and counted my miles Feels like I just got my second wind A few more hours won’t be that long and It’s worth what I’ll be hauling home ‘Cause a day and some change makes a dollar at the end I’m doubling back from Texarkana Cruising through sweet home Alabama Cradled between the mountains and over the streams Four more hours to Industrial road And one more drive ‘til I get back home Racing toward Atlanta like a refugee Yeah, I got eighteen wheels and almost empty If you blink, then you just might miss me Pulling off into the busy street I got four more miles to Industrial road And I can’t wait ’til I get back home Racing toward Atlanta like a refugee Racing toward Atlanta like a refugee Whoa, I'm racing toward Atlanta like a refugee
11.
Boxes stacked beside the door In the morning, they won’t be there no more ‘Cause when I hear that rooster crow Is about the time I’ll have to go Raced out the backwoods, no tears cried I threw an old Coke bottle at the state line sign Didn’t turn around to say goodbye ‘Cause I’m gonna try the city on for size The country was a suit I couldn’t wear And I ran all out of things to do down there And if the lights in the city don’t hypnotize me The place in the middle’s where I’ll be A half a mile’s a half hour drive I can hardly punch my card on time I know I read that print real fine But I wish I’d never signed that line This yoke around my collar’s hard to bare It’s a tie that binds my will to someone else If the good Lord above could break me free The place in the middle’s where I’d be The place in the middle's where I'd be Yeah, the place in the middle's where I'd be
