Lyrics HE WAS ROUGH,
HE WAS TOUGH
AND HE DRANK HIS WHISKEY STRAIGHT.
HE WOULD FIGHT EVERY NIGHT
IF HE DIDN'T GET HIS WAY.
SHE WAS KIND,
SHE COULD FIND
ALL THE GOOD IN EVERYONE.
THEN ONE DAY,
SHE PASSED HIS WAY,
HE FELT REBORN
IN THAT MORNING SUN
HE SAW HER FACE,
SHE CALLED HIS NAME,
FROM THAT MOMENT HE KNEW
HE'D NEVER BE THE SAME.

WHAT YOU CAN FIND
IN THE EYES OF A WOMAN
IS A REASON TO BELIEVE.
LOOK INSIDE
THE EYES OF A WOMAN,
SEE THE MAN
YOU WANT TO BE.

I'D BEEN DOWN,
KICKED AROUND,
THE WORLD WAS GETTIN'
THE BEST OF ME
OUT OF ROPE,
LITTLE HOPE
I'D EVER GET BACK ON MY FEET.
SHE TOOK MY HAND,
SAID, YES YOU CAN,
ONE LOOK AT HER
AND I'M A BRAND NEW MAN.

WHAT YOU CAN FIND
IN THE EYES OF A WOMAN
IS A REASON TO BELIEVE.
LOOK INSIDE
THE EYES OF A WOMAN,
SEE THE MAN
YOU WANT TO BE.

WHEN I FEEL THE NEED
FOR INSPIRATION,
WITH JUST ONE LOOK
I FOUND MY SALVATION.

WHAT YOU CAN FIND
IN THE EYES OF A WOMAN
IS A REASON TO BELIEVE.
LOOK INSIDE
THE EYES OF A WOMAN,
SEE THE MAN
YOU WANT TO BE.

Lyrics verse 1:
HOT SUN DANCIN'
ON THE RIVER,
WE'D SIT ON THE BANK
AND WATCH
THE WORLD ROLL BY.
OUR FEET IN THE WATER,
HE'D PRESS HER LIPS
TO MINE,
WE WERE SO LONG ON LOVE
AND SHORT ON TIME.
SHE COULD BE HONEYMOON SWEET
AND A LITTLE WILD,
SHE WAS MINE
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

Chorus:
I LAUGH WHEN I START
TO THINK ABOUT US,
WE SENT THE SUMMER
OUT IN STYLE.
SHE'S GONE
BUT SHE LEFT ME
WITH A SMILE,
'CAUSE SHE WAS MINE
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

verse 2:
WE'D TAKE A DRIVE
AND PARK
OUT NEXT TO AIRPORT ROAD,
PUT THE SEATS BACK
AND WATCH
THE PLANES LEAVE TOWN.
SHE ALWAYS SAID
NOBODY'S STRONG ENOUGH
TO TIE HER DOWN,
BUT I WASN'T LOOKIN' FOR THAT
ANYHOW.
I KNEW SHE'D LEAVE,
BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHEN,
I THINK ABOUT IT NOW,
BUT I DIDN'T BACK THEN.

Chorus:
I LAUGH WHEN I START
TO THINK ABOUT US,
WE SENT THE SUMMER
OUT IN STYLE.
SHE'S GONE
BUT SHE LEFT ME
WITH A SMILE,
'CAUSE SHE WAS MINE
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

interlude:
I KEEP SEEING PICTURES
OF ME AND HER
AND THOSE SUMMER NIGHTS,
MY MIND'S STILL WITH HER,
OH, BUT THAT'S ALRIGHT
'CAUSE...

Chorus:
I LAUGH WHEN I START
TO THINK ABOUT US,
WE SENT THE SUMMER
OUT IN STYLE.
SHE'S GONE
BUT SHE LEFT ME
WITH A SMILE,
'CAUSE SHE WAS MINE
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

Lyrics verse 1:
I'M NOT GONNA BEG YOU
FOR A LITTLE KISS,
LOVE AIN'T GONNA LAST VERY LONG
LIKE THIS.
YOU EXPECT ME
TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE
AND EVEN THEN
YOU NEVER GET IN THE GROOVE.
YOU DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT,
BUT HONEY,
I DO
YOU THINK A LITTLE
GOES A LONG WAY,
I'VE HAD A LITTLE
MORE THAN I CAN TAKE.

Chorus:
WELL I'M THROUGH
SQUEEZIN' THE LOVE OUTTA YOU,
IT'S LIKE TRYIN'
TO GET WATER FROM A DESERT DUNE.
BABY,
IF THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN DO,
I'M THROUGH,
SQUEEZIN' THE LOVE OUTTA YOU.

verse 2:
YOU MUST THINK
THAT I GOT ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD,
I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW,
BOY, YOU GOT THE WRONG GIRL.
I'VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH
FOR YOU
TO ACT LIKE YOU ARE IN LOVE,
I GUESS
IT'S FINALLY COME DOWN
TO GIVING UP
I SPENT TOO MUCH TIME
HOLDIN' ON TIGHT
WITH BOTH OF MY HANDS
AND ALL MY MIGHT.

Chorus:
WELL I'M THROUGH
SQUEEZIN' THE LOVE OUTTA YOU,
IT'S LIKE TRYIN' TO GET WATER
FROM A DESERT DUNE.
BABY,
IF THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN DO,
I'M THROUGH,
SQUEEZIN' THE LOVE OUTTA YOU.

IT'S LIKE TRYIN'
TO GET TOOTHPASTE
OUT OF AN EMPTY TUBE,
TRYIN' TO FIND A BLIZZARD
DOWN IN BATON ROUGE
YOUR LOVE'S SLOWER
THAN HONEY DRIPPIN' FROM A SPOON,
I'M THROUGH
SQUEEZIN' THE LOVE OUTTA YOU.

YEAH, I'M THROUGH
SQUEEZIN' THE LOVE OUTTA YOU.
