Lyrics YOU CALLED ME BY HER NAME AGAIN,
THINKING I WAS HER AGAIN,
WHEN'S THIS EVER GONNA END, OH,
YOU'RE LIVING SOMEWHERE IN THE PAST,
MISSING LOVE THAT DIDN'T LAST,
AND WHAT WE HAVE IS FADING FAST.

OH...OHAND
THIS AIN'T NINETEEN NINETY NINE,
THIS IS HERE AND NOW,
YOU ARE MINE
BUT YOU'RE CHEATIN' ON ME,
YOU'RE CHEATIN' ON US,
YOU'RE CHEATIN' YOURSELF
RIGHT OUT OF LOVE.
YOU'RE SLIPPING AWAY
FROM ME UNCONSCIOUSLY,
AND I'M LOSING YOU
TO SOME OLD MEMORY.
YOU'RE HAUNTED
BY THAT GHOST IN YOU,
SHE ALWAYS GETS THE MOST OF YOU,
JUST WANT TO BE THAT CLOSE TO YOU.

I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG,
I CAN'T CHANGE YOUR MIND.
BUT THE ONLY THING I KNOW
IS THAT I'M BEING LEFT BEHIND,
I'M BEING LEFT BEHIND.

Lyrics SHE SAT ALL ALONE
ON A BUS OUT OF BEAUMONT,
THE COURAGE OF JUST EIGHTEEN YEARS.
A PENNY AND QUARTER TAPED TO A LETTER,
AND MOMMA'S GOODBYE IN HER EARS.
SHE WATCHED
AS HER HIGH SCHOOL FADED BEHIND HER
AND THE HOUSE
WITH THE WHITE PICKET FENCE,
THEN SHE READ THE NOTE
THAT HER MOMMA HAD WROTE,
WRAPPED UP
WITH TWENTY SIX CENTS.

WHEN YOU GET LONELY,
CALL ME, ANY TIME AT ALL.
I'LL BE THERE WITH YOU,
ALWAYS,
ANYWHERE AT ALL.
THERE'S NOTHING I GOT
THAT I WOULDN'T GIVE,
AND MONEY IS NEVER ENOUGH.
HERE'S A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS,
A QUARTER FOR THE CALL,
AND ALL OF YOUR MOMMA'S LOVE.

A PENNY AND A QUARTER
BUYS A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING
TAPED TO AN OLD WRINKLED NOTE,
AND WHEN SHE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH
SHE HAD ALL MOMMA'S LOVE
INSIDE THAT OLD ENVELOPE.

OH, IT'S BEEN YEARS
SINCE MOMMA'S BEEN GONE.
BUT WHEN SHE HOLDS THE COINS
SHE FEELS THE HER LOVE
JUST AS STRONG.

Lyrics YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING ME
FROM A DISTANCE,
TRYING TO KEEP THE PIECES
ALL IN PLACE.
IN MY HEART
IS A FOOLISH PERSISTENCE,
BEEN TAKING YOU FOR GRANTED
UP UNTIL TODAY.
WHAT WE HAVE IS GOOD
BUT COULD SOON BE GONE,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE YOU
TO BE SO STRONG.

ALL ALONG,
YOU'VE BEEN RIGHT THERE
WAITING PATIENTLY.
ALL ALONG,
WHILE I WAS CHASING
DREAM AFTER DREAM
ON MY OWN.
I'VE SPENT ALL MY TIME
TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT STAR
TO WISH UPON.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT IT WAS YOU
ALL ALONG.

CAN'T YOU SEE THE REGRET,
HOW IT HOLDS ME,
WRAPPED AROUND MY SOUL
LIKE A WINTER CHILL.
I COULD LET IT GO
IF YOU TOLD ME
THAT YOU ALWAYS LOVED ME
AND YOU ALWAYS WILL.
WHAT WE HAVE IS GOOD
BUT COULD SOON BE GONE,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE LOVE
TO BE SO STRONG,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE YOU
TO KEEP OUR LOVE
BURNING STRONG.

ALL ALONG,
YOU'VE BEEN RIGHT THERE
WAITING PATIENTLY.
ALL ALONG,
WHILE I WAS CHASING
DREAM AFTER DREAM
ON MY OWN.
I'VE SPENT ALL MY TIME
TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT STAR
TO WISH UPON.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT IT WAS YOU
ALL ALONG.

Lyrics BOY OH BOY
LOOKED AT ME,
BOY OH BOY
SMILED THAT WAY,
BOY OH BOY
THIS HEART OF MINE
STOOD STILL.
THOUGHT MY WORLD
WAS UNAFFECTED
'TIL THE MOMENT
I LEAST EXPECTED
BOY OH BOY
LOVE'S MOVIN' IN FOR THE KILL.

AND I'M FALLIN'
THIS SPELL I'M UNDER,
I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S UP OR DOWN.
I'M FALLIN'
IT MAKES ME WONDER
WHY I'VE SPENT TIME FOOLIN'
'ROUND WITH BOYS.
BOY OH BOY
THIS MUST BE LOVE.

BOY OH BOY
I FEEL SO SHAKEN,
BOY OH BOY
CAN'T BE MISTAKEN,
THIS IS MORE THAN PASSION
AT FIRST SIGHT.
HIS BROWN EYES TELL THE TRUTH,
I'M SURE HE FEELS THE WAY I DO,
'CAUSE BOY OH BOY
I'M CERTAIN
THAT IT'S RIGHT,
RIGHT,
RIGHT.

I'LL BE SWEET
AND CHARMIN',
I'LL BE COY,
OH YEAH,
BUT WHEN I'M IN HIS ARMS,
BOY OH BOY!

Lyrics YOU SAY YOU'LL CALL
WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT,
YEAH, RIGHT.
YOU MUST THINK THERE'S SOMETHING BETTER,
AND YOU JUST HAVEN'T MET HER,
SO I SHOULD PUT MY LIFE ON HOLD
AND WAIT.
YOU'LL BE BACK
WHEN YOU'RE READY,
FUNNY,
YOU EXPECT ME TO GATHER DUST,
TO TRUST THAT MUCH.

WELL BABY,
I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
BABY,
I DON'T SIT ON SHELVES,
LIKE A COAT THAT'S OUT OF FASHION
WHILE YOU GO
AND TRY ON SOMETHING ELSE.
I DON'T STAY IN STORAGE
LIKE YOUR BEATLE ALBUMS DO,
BABY, I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
WAITIN' AROUND FOR YOU.

YOU SAY WE'RE MOVING A BIT TOO FAST...
THAT'S ALL.
YOU WANT ME TO BE PATIENT,
A SELFISH EXPECTATION
WHEN YOU DECIDE
THAT MY LOVE FITS YOU JUST RIGHT.
YOU'LL WANT ME TO BE HERE
WHEN YOU SEE YOUR WAY CLEAR
TO CARRY ON,
WELL, THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE WRONG.

BABY, I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
BABY, I DON'T SIT ON SHELVES,
LIKE A COAT THAT'S OUT OF FASHION
WHILE YOU GO
AND TRY ON SOMETHING ELSE.
I DON'T STAY IN STORAGE
LIKE A WORN OUT PAIR OF SHOES,
BABY, I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
WAITIN' AROUND FOR YOU.

I'M NOT SOME HAND-ME-DOWN,
I WON'T BE A PLACE TO FALL,
AND I WON'T BE AROUND
WHEN YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
AFTER ALL.

I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
BABY, I DON'T SIT ON SHELVES,
LIKE A COAT THAT'S OUT OF FASHION
WHILE YOU GO
AND TRY ON SOMETHING ELSE.
STACKED UP IN THE CORNER,
JUST YESTERDAY'S NEWS,
OH, NOBABY
I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS
WAITIN' AROUND FOR YOU.

Lyrics HEY MRS. SMITH
IS YOUR DAUGHTER HOME?
IS SHE OFF THE PHONE,
I'VE BEEN TRYING TO CALL HER.
MRS. SMITH
I CAN'T EXPLAIN,
WE WERE AT A GAME
AND SOMETHING HAPPENED:
I TOOK HER HAND
ND I STOLE A KISS,
I GUESS YOU KNOW
I'M NEW AT THIS.

MOMMA DON'T I HAVE A HEART?
DON'T I HAVE TWO ARMS?
THIS CAN'T ALL BE IMAGINATION.
TELL ME HOW YOU KNOW
WHEN TRUE LOVE REALLY STARTS.
I DON'T HAVE A CLUE,
BUT DON'T I HAVE A HEART.

MRS. SMITH
DO YOU REALLY MEAN IT?
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT,
SHE SAID THAT TOO.
YOU BOTH STAYED UP
UNTIL WAY PAST ONE,
NO HOMEWORK DONE
AND SHE SAID TO YOU:
HE STOLE A KISS
ND I LOOKED AT HIM
BUT HE DIDN'T EVEN TRY AGAIN.

HEY MRS. SMITH,
I HOPE THAT I'M NOT OUT OF PLACE.
PLEASE GO GET HER,
GOTTA TELL HER FACE TO FACE.

Lyrics THE DIAMOND RING
NEVER LOST ITS SHINE,
SHE'S STILL SEVENTEEN
WHEN SHE LOOKS IN HIS EYES,
SHE CAN'T IMAGINE
ANYTHING BETTER,
THAN THIS LIFE
THEY'VE GOT TOGETHER.

BUT, EVERY NOW AND THEN
SHE WONDERS WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
IF THE PATH SHE CHOSE
WAS A DIFFERENT ROAD
THAT NEVER LED TO HIM.
SHE WOULDN'T CHANGE ONE SINGLE THING
IF SHE COULD DO IT OVER AGAIN,
SHE JUST WONDERS ABOUT IT
EVERY NOW AND THEN.

WHERE WOULD SHE BE
IS ANYONE'S GUESS
IF SHE HADN'T HAPPENED
UNTO A HEART LIKE HIS.
ONE THING'S FOR SURE
THE NIGHTS WOULD BE COLDER
IF SHE HAD CHOSEN
OTHER ARMS TO HOLD HER.

BUT, EVERY NOW AND THEN
SHE WONDERS WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
IF THE PATH SHE CHOSE
WAS A DIFFERENT ROAD
THAT NEVER LED TO HIM.
SHE WOULDN'T CHANGE
ONE SINGLE THING
IF SHE COULD DO IT OVER AGAIN,
SHE JUST WONDERS ABOUT IT
EVERY NOW AND THEN.

SHE WOULDN'T CHANGE
ONE SINGLE THING
IF SHE COULD DO IT OVER AGAIN.
SHE JUST WONDERS ABOUT IT
EVERY NOW AND THEN,
SHE JUST WONDERS ABOUT IT
EVERY NOW AND THEN,
EVERY NOW AND THEN.

Lyrics SOMETIMES
I SWEAR I LIVE WITH AN ANGEL
SENT FROM ABOVE
TO WATCH OVER ME.
HE WEARS HIS LOVE
JUST LIKE A HALO,
IF HE'S NOT AN ANGEL,
WHAT ELSE COULD HE BE?
HE WOULDN'T SAY
HE'S ANYTHING SPECIAL,
BETCHA THAT'S HOW
ALL THOSE ANGELS ARE.
BUT WHEN HE COMES AROUND
MIRACLES HAPPEN,
I FELT THE FIRST ONE
WHEN HE TOUCHED MY HEART.

THOUGH I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM FLY
ON THE WINGS OF LOVE HE CARRIES ME.
HEAVEN BOUND
I'M MYSTIFIED
HOW WITH JUST ONE KISS
HE MADE ME BELIEVE IN ANGELS
THOUGH I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM FLY.

THIS MORNIN' HE WALKED UP,
SMILED,
AND I KISSED HIM,
I NEVER LET ON
THAT HE'S NOT FOOLIN' ME.
BUT I THINK IT'S SO CUTE
HOW HE SAYS HE'S FROM HOUSTON,
I SWEAR
THERE'S WINGS TUCKED UP HIS SLEEVES.

Lyrics BOYS COME AND GO AT SEVENTEEN
AND HEARTS GET BROKEN IN BETWEEN,
EMOTIONS RACE LIKE FAST CARS,
PATIENCE COMES SO HARD.

BUT I KNOW I'VE GOT TO MAKE,
MAKE MY OWN MISTAKES
NO ONE'S GONNA MAKE THEM FOR ME,
AND I'VE GOT TO CRY MY TEARS,
IT MIGHT TAKE ME YEARS,
BUT WHEN IT'S FINALLY HERE
I'LL KNOW LOVE.

FOR NOW
IT'S JUST A QUESTION MARK
'TIL SOMEONE WRITES
THE ANSWERS IN MY HEART,
'TIL LOVE FILLS UP THE PAGES,
ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT...

I'LL FIND THE ONE
THAT I'VE BEEN DREAMING 'BOUT,
IT'LL BE OKAY,
IT'LL ALL WORK OUT 'CAUSE...

Lyrics ME, SITTING HERE BY MYSELF
WONDERING WHAT I CAN DO
NOW THAT I DON'T HAVE YOU.
AND ME, TRYING TO TELL MYSELF
THAT I'M GONNA FIND A WAY
TO CHANGE YOUR MIND SOMEDAY.

ME, MYSELF AND I:
THERE'S THREE GOOD REASONS WHY
YOU SHOULD TURN AROUND
AND COME BACK HOME TONIGHT.
AND MY HEART IS SURE
NO ONE ELSE COULD LOVE YOU MORE
THAN ME MYSELF AND I.

ME, LOOKING HARD AT MYSELF
WITHOUT YOU BY MY SIDE,
HOW WILL I EVER SURVIVE?
AND YOU, DO YOU EVER THINK OF US
AND WONDER WHO STILL LOVES YOU?
WELL I KNOW THREE FOOLS THAT DO:
ME, MYSELF AND I.

Lyrics YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
HOW CLOSE WE CAME,
THE WORD GOODBYE
WAS ALMOST SPOKEN,
JUST ONE MORE THOUGHTLESS WORD
AND I WAS READY TO LEAVE.
THEN THE THOUGHT OF HOW I'D FEEL
WAKING UP ONE DAY WITHOUT YOU,
I CLOSED THE DOOR
ND TURNED AROUND,
YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT
IF YOU HAD SEEN IT.

THERE I WAS...
THE NOTE WAS EVEN WRITTEN,
SEVEN PAGES...
IT TOOK ALL DAY,
THERE I WAS...
I'D MADE MY DECISION
WITH NOTHING BUT LOVE
STANDING IN THE WAY.

THIS IS WORTH THE EMPTY CAB,
THIS IS WORTH THE BAG UNPACKING,
IF ONLY FOR THE LESSON LEARNED,
I'M GLAD
TO GO THROUGH THIS MOMENT OF TRUTH,
YEAH.

NOTHING
BUT THE TOUCH OF YOUR HAND,
NOTHING
BUT YOUR KISS, I KNOW,
DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO THINK TWICE,
BABY, HOW COULD I GO?

Lyrics TIME,
IT GOES SO FAST,
LIKE A RIVER RUNNING PAST.
AND YOU'RE LUCKY
IF YOU CAN FIND AT LAST
JUST ONE FAITHFUL HEART.
SO I WATCH HER
AS SHE SLEEPS
ALL CURLED UP IN HER DREAMS.
SOMEWHERE
BENEATH THE QUILT AND SHEETS
GENTLY BEATS ONE FAITHFUL HEART.

AS CONSTANT AS THE NORTHERN STAR,
AND AS SURE AS GRAVITY,
HER LOVE MAKES ME COMPLETE,
MAKES MY LIFE SO SWEET.

THIS NIGHT WILL SLIP ON BY,
SOON SHE'LL OPEN UP HER EYES,
AND I WILL SEE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES
FROM JUST ONE FAITHFUL HEART.

I LIVE TO SEE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES
FROM JUST ONE FAITHFUL HEART.
