Start Again

I’ll be kind, if you’ll be faithful
You be sweet and I’ll be grateful
Cover me with kisses dear
Lighten up the atmosphere
Keep me warm inside our bed
I got dreams of you all through my head
Fortune teller said I’d be free
And that’s the day you came to me
Came to me

Come to me my sweetest friend
Can you feel my heart again
I’ll take you back where you belong
And this will be our favorite song
Come to me with secrets bare
I’ll love you more so don’t be scared
And when we’re old and near the end
We’ll go home and start again

I caught you burnin’ photographs
Like that could save you from your past
History is like gravity
It holds you down away from me
You and me, we’ve both got sins
And I don’t care about where you’ve been
Don’t be sad and don’t explain
This is where we start again
Start again

Come to me my sweetest friend
Can you feel my heart again
I’ll take you back where you belong
And this will be our favorite song
Come to me with secrets bare
I’ll love you more so don’t be scared
And when we’re old and near the end
We’ll go home and start again
Start again

Today’s the day I’ll make you mine
So get me to the church on time
Take my hand in this empty room
You’re my girl, and I’m your groom

Come to me my sweetest friend
This is where we start again,
Again

Come to me my sweetest friend
Can you feel my heart again
I’ll take you back where you belong
And this will be our favorite song
Come to me with secrets bare
I’ll love you more so don’t be scared
When we’re old and near the end
We’ll go home and start again
Start again

Goo Goo Dolls – Come to Me

Mine Would be You

What’s your all time high, your good as it gets?
Your hands down best ever make-up sex?
What’s your guilty pleasure, your old go to?
Well if you asked me, mine would be you

What’s your worst hangover, your best night yet?
Your 90 proof, your Marlboro Red?
The best damn thing you lucked in to
That’s easy girl, mine would be you

Mine would be you
Sun keeps shinin’, back road flyin’
Singing like crazy fools
Makin’ up our own words
Laughin’ ’til it hurts
Baby, if I had to choose
My best day ever
My finest hour, my wildest dream come true
Mine would be you

What’s your double dare, your go all in?
The craziest thing you ever did?
Plain as your name in this tattoo
Look on my arm, mine would be you

Mine would be you
Sun keeps shinin’, back road flyin’
Singing like crazy fools
Makin’ up our own words
Laughin’ ’til it hurts
Baby, if I had to choose
My best day ever
My finest hour, my wildest dream come true
Mine would be you

What’s the greatest chapter in your book?
Are there pages where it hurts to look?
What’s the one regret you can’t work through?
You got it baby, mine would be you
Yeah you got it baby, mine would be you

Mine would be you
Taillights fadin’
Daylight breakin’
Standin’ there like a fool
When I should’ve been runnin’
Yellin’ out somethin’
To make you wanna hold onto
The best love ever
Girl, can you tell me
The one thing you’d rather die than lose?
Cause mine would be you
Mine would be you

Cowboys and Angels

There’s a want and there’s a need
There’s a history between
Girls like her and guys like me
Cowboys and angels

I’ve got boots and she’s got wings
I’m hell on wheels and she’s heavenly
I’d die for her and she lives for me
Cowboys and angels

We ride side by side
A cloud of dust, a ray of light
My touch is her temptation
Her kiss is my salvation
She’s sweet, I’m wild, we’re dangerous
Cowboys and angels

I’m not sure why her path crossed mine
Accident or grand design
Maybe God just kinda likes
Cowboys and angels

Acoustic version:

Original version:

All the Crazy in My Dreams, Both My Broken Wings

I’m a long-gone Waylon song on vinyl,
I’m a back row sinner at a tent revival,
But she believes in me like she believes her Bible,
And loves me like Jesus does.

I’m a lead foot leaning on a souped-up Chevy,
I’m a good old boy, drinking whiskey and rye on the levee,
But she carries me when my sins make me heavy,
And loves me like Jesus does.

All the crazy in my dreams,
Both my broken wings,
Every single piece of everything I am,
Yeah, she knows the man I ain’t,
She forgives me when I can’t,
The devil, man, no, he don’t stand a chance,
‘Cause she loves me like Jesus does.

I always thought she’d give up on me one day,
Wash her hands of me, leave me staring down some runway,
But I thank God each night, and twice on Sunday,
That she loves me like Jesus does.

Hank

To a boy who looks just like his mother,
Who’s a sister to her brother
Who sings this song to that boy from far away

I am young but you are younger
And til you speak more words than mumble,
You’ll have to lend an ear to everything i say

So be kind and love your mother and your father
Though sometimes they seem to bother
Come my age and you’ll know

There the ones who’ll always love you and support you,
They prayed for you before you
Stepped foot into this world
That’s one thing that I’ve learned

I remember you were walking
In a month I’ll hear you talking
There’s a million things I’d love to say to you

And though your parents, they are wiser
And will be better advisers,
Maybe hearing these things twice will get them through

So go and find a girl for whom your love is selfless
Someone who makes you helpless
To change the way you feel
But stay away from girls who always look so pretty,
But who’s hearts just aren’t fitting
For the man in you I see

Would you remember that for me?

When you find yourself alone
In times of trouble
Reach inside you and above you
There’s nothing He can’t heal

And if it is you do not end up with a brother
Just call your older uncle
I would always lend an ear

Would you remember that for me?

I’ve Been Trying

I’ve been trying to do it right
I’ve been living a lonely life

I’ve been sleeping here instead
I’ve been sleeping in my bed

So show me family
And all the blood that I would bleed

I don’t know where I belong
I don’t know where I went wrong

Where the Ocean Meets the Land

Well I’ve been hanging round this place
I’ve been looking through your space
I’ve been waiting for you

All the places that you go
All the people that you know
I’ve been looking for you

And all these pretty people up on El Cerrito Place
They all got something in their pockets,
All got something on their face
They roll down to La Brea where it meets the boulevard
Singing hallelujah while they dance over the stars
They all say they’re going far

Me, I’ve been looking for you baby…

Someone said they might have seen you where the ocean meets the land
So I’ve been out here all night looking for your footprints in the sand
Did you hear the ocean singing
And baby did you sing along
While you danced out in the water to some old forgotten song
Or were you even here at all?

Somehow I wound up in the desert
Just after daylight
Where the Joshua trees grow
That little place you always liked
These pioneer town people ain’t got too much to say
And if you ever were here baby they ain’t giving you away
And now it’s been two days

Think I’ll go back to the city
Back to El Cerrito Place
That’s the last time that I saw that pretty smile upon your face

The Best Day – Taylor Swift

This is to my amazing Mom:

I’m five years old and it’s getting cold
I’ve got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you
I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides
Look now the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you’re not scared of anything at all
Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I’m thirteen now and don’t know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop till I forget their names

I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school
But I know I’m laughing on the car ride home with you
Don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel ok
But I know I had the best day with you today

i have an excellent father
His strength is makking me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out he’s better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house and i had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video i found from back when i was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you’re talking to me
It’s the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
Daddy’s smart and you’re the prettiest lad in the whole wide world

Now i know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine and I didn’t know if you knew
So I’m taking this chance to say that i had the best day with you today

Where I Stood…

“Where I Stood” by Missy Higgins

I don’t know what I’ve done
Or if I like what I’ve begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it’s all or none

There were sounds in my head
Little voices whispering
That I should go and this should end
Oh and I found myself listening

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right
But you ain’t leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I won’t be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you
This is what I have to do

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
Oh, she who dares to stand where I stood
