STORY OF LOVE

I'M MOVING TO NASHVILLE

 

 

 

IF YOU WANT ME TO

I wanna know you inside out,

Don't want to waste our precious time in this crowd.

We can catch the last train if we leave now,

Is this too much? Are my feelings too loud?

This could be, or just for fun,

I'm all in, it's your call.

I want to take you home for a conversation,

Have a glass of a wine to set the mood.

You can have a peek at my record collection,

You be Johnny to my June.

If we talk all night and the sun starts rising,

I can make you eggs and orange juice.

This could be the start of a new beginning,

I could be the one if you want me to.

I want to hear you speak your mind,

Cut out the small talk, tell me about the storm inside.

If I hold your hand can I call you mine?

Tell our friends we're leaving for the night.

LIE TO ME
Lie to me, Lie to me

Tell me you love me, say you'll be true to me.
Lie to me, Lie to me

Tell me I'm beautiful, say you'll never leave me.

Let's pretend this is where you want to be,

My whole heart belongs to you but your mind is with the wind.

You can't change the way that you feel,

But for one more night could you try?

And I'll leave your side of the bed made,

Just in case you come back one day.

You don't need to ask if you want to go,

Pack your bags when I'm not around, just leave me a note.

And I'll leave your side of the bed made,

'Cause right now I can't face the heartbreak.

JUST FRIENDS

Wide awake at 2am,
Texting you from my phone.

'Come on over, I hate sleeping alone'.

I know I said we wouldn't work out,

Too busy listening to my friends.

Boy, come on over, let's start over again.

Just me and you and a bottle of whisky will do,

You bring the conversation, I've got the juice.

Let's skip to the part where we make up,

You miss me and I miss us.

I'm sorry for the way I let you down,

You know I don't feel that way now.

Apologise for the things you said,

But help me understand what you meant.

Let's promise to never let this happen again,

I don't wanna be just friends.

Lock the door when you get here,

you know exactly where I'll be,

Come on over, I could make you happy.

We don't have to talk we don't have to fight,

Well at least for tonight.

Boy, come on over, let me make this right.

Just me and you and a bottle of vodka will do,

You've got my spare key and I got the juice.

Just me and you and a bottle of something will do,

We can get drunk under the stars and the moon.

 

 

 

 

SHOULD'VE, COULD'VE, WILL

I should’ve known, when you left me lonely.

I should’ve seen the signs, should’ve left before I wasted all my time.

I’m more disappointed in myself for not knowing my own worth,

But for sticking around for so long maybe its what I deserve.

 

I should’ve been strong and told you no.

I should have given you no choice whether you’d stay or go.

There’s so many things I should have done.

But now these moments have passed.

You should’ve loved me whilst you had the chance.

 

I could’ve taken your hand and shown you the way.

I could have ridden in on my white horse and saved us from a rainy day.

 

I could’ve been strong and told you no.

I could have given you no choice whether you’d stay or go.

There’s so many things I could have done.

But now these moments have passed.

You could’ve loved me whilst you had the chance.

 

I don’t have eyes in the back of my head.

I’m not moving backwards so I might as well focus on where I’m going instead.

 

And next time I will be strong and tell you no.

I will give you no damn choice whether you’d stay or go.

There’s so many things I will have done.

No more moments will pass.

‘Cause you’ll love me whilst you have the chance.

 

 

 

 

FAKE FRIENDS
I saw you out last week, 

You spilled all your troubles and your fifth drink on me.

We said ‘it’s been too long’ since we’ve seen each other.

But you know we’re just killing time.

 

Don’t promise that we’ll meet if you don’t really mean it,

Don’t say you’ll find the time, when we both know you won’t.

Don’t tell me you miss me before this night ends,

‘Cause girl don’t you know, we’re fake friends.

 

There was a time and place when we’d speak everyday,

You’d always have something to tell me, I’d always have something to say.

But I grew and you moved on and left me behind,

It cuts me deep that you don’t need me and you don’t even mind.

 

So, don’t promise that we’ll meet if you don’t really mean it,

Don’t say you’ll find the time, when we both know you won’t.

Don’t tell me you miss me and break my heart again,

‘Cause now I know, we’re fake friends.

 

We have tonight so tell me about your life and the men who’ve let you down,

I’ll say ‘you deserve better’ and when we say goodbye ‘I guess I’ll see you around’.

 

Don’t promise that we’ll meet if you don’t really mean it,

Don’t say you’ll find the time, when we both know you won’t.

Don’t tell me you miss me ‘cause we can’t pretend,

We’re just fake friends.

 

PARADISE

I can't say I'm not scared as the sun starts to fall,

I don't want to close my eyes in case we don't get tomorrow.

So hold me closer than close and promise you won't leave my side,

I'll surrender to you my body, my time.

'Cause I'm yours and I know that you want me too,

Don't hesitate no need to think it through,

It's me and you.

As we fall in to the night whisper softly "I am yours and you are mine",

And as our hearts begin to ignite I know we have found paradise.

Take me up to the moon, let me swim with your stars,

Anywhere we go is heaven as long as I'm in your arms.

Take me higher and higher and promise you won't let me fall,

And to you I'll surrender my heart, my soul.

'Cause I'm yours and I hope that you want me too,

Don't lie my heart is black and blue,

The way you feel please tel me the truth,

Is it me and you?

CHANCES ARE

Chances are she'll go home with him,

It won't be love but it's how it begins.

You won't bat an eye or count your lucky stars,

He won't know how lucky he is.

Chances Are you don't know how I feel,

Chances Are I'm not bold enough to steal your heart,

I come apart, cupid's shooting in the dark,

You dance with him while I wonder what my chances are.

Do you recall the night we met?

Between Jack and Jim I woke up in your bed.

We keep hanging out but never went there again,

After all this time we're still just friends?

Chances Are you don't know how I feel,

Chances Are I'm not bold enough to steal your heart,

It's hard to hit your mark when cupid's shooting in the dark,

While I wonder what my chances are.

REAR VIEW MIRROR

You suit my rear view mirror hunny,

Now there's a picture I could frame sit you on my bedside table night and day.

Thinking you'll pick me up in that rusty truck,

We'll drink some beer and laugh it off​.

It don't work that way.

'Cause my mumma didn't raise no saint,

But my daddy wont allow a sinner.

I guess we'll find our the hard way.

 

You suit my rear view mirror hunny,

Now there's a picture I could frame sit you on my bedside table night and day.

And you can keep on dreaming on darling,

I'm a gun with just one shot, you're in my dust you're long forgotten.

 

Thought we had it all but I was wrong,

You were on the other side of town having "fun"

& that's not all.

I guess you thought it would be fine,

When you said her name instead of mine.

It's a long way to fall.

 

Won't make that mistake again.

 

So I hitched a ride out of town,

But not before I spread the word around.

STORY OF LOVE

I am yours, promise to love me so

'Cause without you I'd rather walk alone.

Give me love until my skin grows cold,

I will never be letting you go.

I see my future in your eyes,

Your past it don't matter to me.

I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,

I could not lie to myself.

I'm exactly where I want to be.

We've come such a long, long way,

We've only scratched the surface of us.

So don't look down 'cause I'm never looking back,

Keep me shining brighter then the stars above.

This is our story of love.

Take my hand, of course, you already have my heart,

& when you leave I hate seeing you go.

Promise me you'll return don't keep me hanging on and on,

And like a fool in love I'll welcome you home.

I'M MOVING TO NASHVILLE

I'm moving to Nashville,

With a suitcase full of hopes and dreams.

I'm trading in my cow for a bag of magic beans.

For all that I've given, to get here,

With all the miles in between.

Please don't let me one way ticket just be a handful of seeds.

I'm moving to Nashville.

I'm moving to Nashville,

To those I've left behind I leave a trail of breadcrumbs so I'm easier to find.

When you hear a sad song, in a small bar, I hope you think of me.

Please don't let my music fade in to a memory,

'Cause I'm moving to Nashville.

Life is a journey, not a destination,

Why'd it take me so long to have this realisation?

When I moved to Nashville,

There was no gold at the end of rainbow,

Just people pulling strings at a grandiose puppet show.

It's about who you know, not what you know,

It's about where you've been and where you'll go.

When I moved to Nashville.

But I moved to Nashville,

& I'm going home with more than hopes and dreams,

I know just who I am and exactly where I need to be.

I'll never forget it or regret it,

'Cause now i'll always know.

Life's a journey, it's not where you go.

Life's a journey, make it own.

Your life's a journey, and now i know,

I moved to Nashville.
