About Me

Whistles And Bells
written by Radney Foster and Cindy Bullens
 
Whistles and bells won't ever bring you love and happiness
She's never gonna give her heart the way that I would give
She's got you spinning round in circles, I can tell
With her lights, buzzers, whistles and bells

I see her running round this town in her fancy car
A girl who can't afford your hopes and dreams
But darlin' all those pretty toys won't help your broken heart
When she's through and sends you packin' back to me

Whistles and bells won't ever bring you love and happiness
She's never gonna give her heart the way that I would give
She's got you spinning round in circles, I can tell
With her lights, buzzers, whistles and bells

I cried those lonely tears until the day I realized
That you were hurting so much more than me
There are some things in this world that just don't have a price
Like the love that waits here for you patiently

Whistles and bells won't ever bring you love and happiness
She's never gonna give her heart the way that I would give
She's got you spinning round in circles, I can tell
With her lights, buzzers, whistles and bells

She's got you spinning round in circles, I can tell
With her lights, buzzers, whistles and bells
 
I'm Falling Again
written by Martie Erwin, Emily Erwin, Laura Lynch and Matthew Benjamin

No mistaking this time
No changing my mind
No walking away
Then begging to stay
No letting you go
Cause this time my heart knows
We're destined to win
I'm falling again

I'm falling again
Right back where I've been
Trading heartbreak for love that I've missed
It's a gamble and I'll take the risk
I should've known from the start
What you'd do to my heart
We're destined to win
I'm falling again

No waiting to see
If it's right for me
No doubting your eyes
No watching you cry
No turning to run
And no loving for fun
No holding it in
I'm falling again

So please don't say you won't take me back again
Because time away won't be time better spent 

I'm falling again
Right back where I've been
Trading heartbreak for love that I've missed
It's a gamble and I'll take the risk
I should've known from the start
What you'd do to my heart
We're destined to win
I'm falling again

Should've known from the start
What you'd do to my heart
We're destined to win
I'm falling again
 
Shouldn't A Told You That
written by Mike Hiatt

Well he told me that he was tired of being good
And he told me that she don't treat him like she should
Well he told me when he'd be alone
He told me how long she'd be gone
I'm only human
He shouldn't a told me that

Well she told me that her man was really fine
Makes her sorry that she doesn't have more time
Well she laughed and told me how she gets
A little bit just now and then
I'm only human
She shouldn't a told me that

My doctor tells me I should get more exercise
My friends tell me to be alone is so unwise
I'm being good but I don't know for how long
Temptation is comin' on strong

Well I told you that I saw him yesterday
Very sexy, more than that I cannot say
And just before I said goodbye I told him with a little sigh
I'm only human
I shouldn't-a told him that

My doctor tells me I should get more exercise
My friends tell me to be alone is so unwise
I'm being good but I don't know for how long
Temptation is comin' on strong

Well I told you that I saw him yesterday
Very sexy, more than that I cannot say
And just before I said goodbye I told him with a little sigh
I'm only human
I shouldn't-a told him that
 
Desire
written by Kim Richey and Steve Kolander

Last night I took a turn I never should
I knew nothing good could come of this
Morning's come now and the smoke has cleared
How did I get here from a single kiss

I can't undo what's been done
When the web's already spun
I got caught up in desire
No matter what I say
I can't make it go away
The trouble's just begun
Can't undo what's been done

When I get home there will be hell to pay
I wish there was a way to ease the pain
In a heartbeat I could lose it all
Then my tears would fall, fall like pouring rain

I can't undo what's been done
When the web's already spun
I got caught up in desire
No matter what I say
I can't make it go away
The trouble's just begun
Can't undo what's been done

I can't undo what's been done
When the web's already spun
I got caught up in desire
No matter what I say
I can't make it go away
The trouble's just begun
Can't undo what's been done

No I can't undo what's been done
 
There Goes My Dream
written by Jamie O'Hare

There goes my dream
Walkin' down the street
With somebody new
There goes my dream
I love him so
He will never know
What he means to me
There goes my dream

I was dreamin' of happiness
A life of togetherness
No more of this loneliness
A love without end

But there goes my dream
Walkin' down the street
With somebody new
There goes my dream
I love him so
He will never know
What he means to me
There goes my dream

I was dreaming of family
Of him growing old with me
Sharing the memories
Of a wonderful life

But there goes my dream
Walkin' down the street
With somebody new
There goes my dream
I love him so
He will never know
What he means to me
There goes my dream

I love him so
He will never know
What he means to me
There goes my dream
 
One Heart Away
written by Matthew Benjamin and Tom Van Schaik

Well you know how much you mean to me
And babe I know how much you really care
But when we talk about eternity
Forever seems to be too much for you to bear
Put your faith in my heart
And tell me you could be mine

Just a minute of your time
I'll pull you closer til I make you mine
If you really love me let's start today
Our love is only one heart away

You say that you've been burned by the flame
And that you're never gonna try love again
But there's just one thing that I need to say
For you to think of me as more than just your friend
When I look in your eyes
I see your heart in mine

Just a minute of your time
I'll pull you closer til I make you mine
If you really love me let's start today
Our love is only one heart away

I don't know what your heart's been thinking
I only know that mine really needs you
We've been together long enough to know
We should just hold on

Just a minute of your time
I'll pull you closer til I make you mine
If you really love me let's start today
Our love is only one heart away

Just a minute of your time
I'll pull you closer til I make you mine
If you really love me let's start today
Our love is only one heart away
 
The Thrill Is In The Chase
written by Laura Lynch and Dave Peters

Girls never like to know their love for him is true
Cause the nature of the beast says he wants to pursue
He wants what he cannot have and he won't be outdone
He'll always love the one that keeps him on the run

The thrill is in the chase and I guess they know that too
Cause I've been running long and hard and can't catch up to you
Girls if you think you've found true love keep your poker face
Cause I know better, the thrill is in the chase

If he's far, far away don't call him on the phone
Never let him know you spend some nights alone
I can tell you one thing more that I've found to be true
That he'll always love the one that makes him blue

The thrill is in the chase and I guess they know that too
Cause I've been running long and hard and can't catch up to you
Girls if you think you've found true love keep your poker face
Cause I know better, the thrill is in the chase

Girls if you think you've found true love keep your poker face
Cause I know better, the thrill is in the chase

Cause I know better, the thrill is in the chase
 
I Wasn't Looking For You
written by Matthew Benjamin

It never crossed my mind
It never mattered much
Who was going to be there for me to hold and touch
I never thought I'd care
Like I do
I wasn't looking for you

Must've been blind
I couldn't see
There was going to be that someone waiting for me
You stole my heart
Nothing I could do
I wasn't looking for you

It was the easiest thing I ever had to do
Lay down my heart, lay down yours too
Spend all my life not knowing who
I wasn't looking for you

It never crossed my mind
It never mattered much
Now I need you more than ever to hold and touch
Your hand in mine
There's nothing I won't do
I wasn't looking for you

Lonely nights are dead and gone
'Cause of you I will never be alone

It was the easiest thing I ever had to do
Lay down my heart, lay down yours too
Spend all my life not knowing who
I wasn't looking for you

I wasn't looking for you
 
I've Only Got Myself To Blame
written by Tony Lane

Hot night tonight I've got a fever in my bones
I don't know what it is that drives me so far away from home
But I've walked the white line 'til the time that I cannot stand no more
Then I take my boots off and I lay down on the floor

And if you find me by the roadside
Don't be afraid to call my name
And if I seem a bit uneasy
You know that I've only got myself to blame
You know that I've only got myself to blame

Walkin' down the road
I start to fade into the night
I know I've seen the dark of day but have I seen the light
All along a country song kept burnin' in my head
I've turned my back on better days
But tonight I'll stay in bed

And if you find me feelin' lonesome
Don't be ashamed to call my name
And if I seem a bit uneasy
Know that I've only got myself to blame

Now I turn my head up to the sky and it's down the road I go
I'll tell you where I'm going but it's truly I don't know
And I don't look for no affection, I've always gone alone
When you see me coming home you'll know I'll soon be gone

And if you find me by the roadside
Don't be afraid to call my name
And if I seem a bit uneasy
You know that I've only got myself to blame
You know that I've only got myself to blame
 
Planet of Love
written by Jim Lauderdale and John Leventhal

I've found a new planet that only I can see
Just came back to get you, let's leave this misery
Nothing can reach us so far from harm's way
Only sunshine and rainbows every day

We've got to get back there, hurry up and get your things
The countdown has started, go ahead, try on these wings
Don't need no spaceship for what I'm thinkin' of
Didn't I tell you that I'd take you to the planet of love

I got tired of losin', but now I'm in control
So help me start packin', we don't have far to go
I found a new planet, don't revolve around the sun
We'll make a new start there, the journey's just begun
Won't get into trouble in our new world so far above
Didn't I tell you that I'd take you to the planet of love
Didn't I tell you that I'd take you to the planet of love
 
Boo-Hoo
(Hidden Track)
written by Edward Heyman, Carmen Lombardo and John Jacob Loeb

Boo-hoo, you've got me cryin' for you
And as I sit here and sigh
Cause I, I can't believe it's true, Boo-hoo
I'll tell my mother on you
The little game that you played
Has made her baby oh so blue
You left me in a lurch
You left me waiting at the church
Boo-hoo, that's why I'm cryin' for you
Someday you'll feel like I do
And you'll
be boo hoo hoo-in too
