Track Name: Come With Me
you only like me sometimes
you never answer my calls in the daylight

when i call are you living your beautiful life
or are you dreaming of another
how she could be your wife
are you choking down your coffee
cause the rest, it just won't come with me
come with me, come with me into the light

i'm holding on for dear life
don't you dare tell me dreams belong in the night

when i call are you living your beautiful life
or are you dreaming of another
how she could be your wife
are you choking down your coffee
cause the rest, it just won't come with me
come with me, come with me into the light

i tell myself, don't love that man more than he loves me
but when i wake i find myself dialing ...

when i call are you living your beautiful life
or are you dreaming of another
how she could be your wife
are you choking down your coffee
cause the rest, it just won't come with me
come with me, come with me into the light
Track Name: Country Boy
ten years ago, in the sleepy south
i was a brand new girl in a country town
i was on my porch, when a boy drove by
he slowed down his car, and he winked and smiled

when i see you, i still see that country boy
i see me powerless, enchanted, overjoyed
i know years have passed, this town has changed
but baby i still see you the same way

i fell in love with that country boy
i would call him baby, he would call me joy
we didn't have no nights, we didn't have no days
he lit up my steps, and i walked his way

when i see you, i still see that country boy
i see me powerless, enchanted, overjoyed
i know years have passed, this town has changed
but baby i still see you the same way

we'd go for walks to the country store
i didn't need no food, just wanted to be with you boy
you would smile at me, and i'd forget to speak
then you'd grab my hands, and my knees get weak

when i see you, i still see that country boy
i see me powerless, enchanted, overjoyed
i know years have passed, this town has changed
but baby i still see you the same way

we found ourselves in a country chapel
we were vowing love, nothing felt more natural
when i said i do, i saw you start to cry
and the whole town cheered, as we waved goodbye

when i see you, i still see that country boy
i see me powerless, enchanted, overjoyed
i know years have passed, this town has changed
but baby i still see you the same way (2X)
Track Name: Speaking My Mind
i don't like who i am when i'm with you
but i love when you look in my eyes
so i'm packing my suitcase and waving goodbye
you have kept me from speaking my mind

i would say i'm not usually silent
i would say i'm not usually shy
so i'm packing my suitcase and waving goodbye
you have kept me from speaking my mind

sweet honey bee
you've overshadowed me

i will save all your sweet forehead kisses
all my heart's softest melody lines
but i'm packing my suitcase and waving goodbye
i am finally, finally, finally, finally ...
i am finally speaking my mind
Track Name: Uncomplicated
first of all, this song's not about you
it's about somebody else
and another thing, i'm thriving without you
oh yes

you're so uncomplicated
it really makes me crazy
see i'm a tangled mess of wire
and you're a simple straight blue line
and i just can't move along now
cause i know you're my tomorrow

and i just can't stay here either
hoping you'll turn on the light
and i just can't wait here either
hating you for being bright

i un-reversed your minute ago
it's too late to pack
you called it the Door of No Return
but i'm back!

you're so uncomplicated
it really makes me crazy
see i'm a tangled mess of wire
and you're a simple straight blue line
and i just can't move along now
cause i know you're my tomorrow
and i just can't stay here either
hoping you'll turn on the light
and i just can't wait here either
hating you for being bright
Track Name: You Were A Story
i had a dream
we had a family
we had a house
we both had cars
and we had jobs
and we had treasure, measured wealth with intangible rods

i had a pen
you were a story
that i could write
the world would read
and it would fix you
and it would lift you back to glory and out of the streets
(repeat)
Track Name: Written On
I've met strangers, that felt nearer baby than you
empty phrases, on blank pages mean more than we do now
I've read make-believe, that felt more real baby than this
you were here, and you wrote all over me (2x)

there's no outlaw, that's more wanted baby than you
there's no reason, for me feeling the way that I do right now
when I think about, all the mayhem you put me through
you were here, and you wrote all over me (2x)

there's no outlaw, that's more wanted baby than you
there's no reason, for me feeling the way that I do right now
when I think about, all the mayhem you put me through
you were here, and you wrote all over me (2x)

on my arms with your warm
on my heart with your cold
on my brain with your words
from my mouth flow these songs
on my now with our then
on my sleeve with your soul
you were here, and you wrote all over me (2x)
