Together Lyrics

 

Whiskey Lady



Sitting in the same old bar room
Staring at the same old faces
Hoping for someone new to do you right
Someone to be your lover
Not just another one night stand
A brand new face to take the place
Of the bottle in your hand


Whiskey lady
You ainít gonna find what youíre looking for
In the bottom of an empty bottle, no
Or the motel down the road


You know thereís nothing funny
ĎBout waking up Monday morning yeah
When the pain inside your headís the same
As the hurt that fills your heart.
O give her your understanding
She needs to know that sheís not alone
If the woman she was walked out that door
Let the girl she is go home


Whiskey lady when you wake up
In the morning with no make-up
And the night before
Comes crashing down around you
And the feeling that it gave you
Like the man who lay beside you
Is gone and youíre as empty as
The bottle by the bed

 

 

Ready To Take My Chances



Iíve been down the road of love so many times it scares me
But I guess Iíve always taken the wrong track
ĎCause every time I gave my heart away it just got broken.
Love took me for a ride then circled back


But now Iím ready to take my chances
On falling in love with you,
Faith to give love one last final try.
Ready to be loved again, held in someoneís arms.
Ready to take my chances with you tonight


I never knew that love for me could be so warm and tender
I never knew a kiss would mean this much
But here I am losing all control of my defenses
Completely I surrender to your touch

 

 

Trying To Love Two Women



Trying to love two women is like a ball and chain
Trying to love two women is like a ball and chain
Sometimes the pleasure ain't worth the strain
It's a long old grind, and it tires your mind.

Trying to hold two women is tearing me apart
Trying to hold two women is tearing me apart
One's got my money, the other's got my heart
It's a long old grind, and it tires your mind.

When you try to please two women, you can't please yourself
When you try to please two women, you can't please yourself
At best it's only half good; a man can't stock two shelves
It's a long old grind, and it tires your mind

 

 

Heart Of Mine



There wasnít much love on the day you came
I was feeling my way with a heart gone lame
Life was so cold right then
I thought Iíd never love again
Though my dreams of romance blew away with the wind.
Oh my heart beat slow


Heart of mine
Can we try it one more time?
Can you help but love a girl so free so kind?
Lonely tears helped me waiting all these years
For the day I felt the joy of love inside
When my heartís alive


Believe me I know that the truth sounds strange, oh yeah
How an innocent smile made my whole life change, mm mm
You call it coincidence
But I knew she was heaven sent
When I felt that my heart was beginning to mend
Now my heart beats fast


Heart of mine
I think we made it just in time
We canít help but love a girl so free so kind
Lonely tears helped me looking all those years
And today I felt the joy of love inside
Yes my heartís alive.
And growing stronger all the time

 

 

Beautiful You



Please donít cry,
O my, youíre so blue
But Iím here to help you,
Beautiful you.
You need someone to give you
A love thatís true
Well Iím here to help you,
Beautiful you


Beautiful you,
Youíll need a man someday,
Beautiful you,
You know Iím here to stay
Days go by,
O my, what will you do?
Take me to help you,
Beautiful you


Beautiful you,
Iíll never let you go,
Beautiful you,
Our love will always grow
Please donít cry,
O my, what will you do?
Take me to help you,
Beautiful you

 

 

Take This Heart



Take this heart, give it to a charity
Take this heart, give it to the poor.
Take this heart and give it to the Salvation Army
I donít think I need it anymore.


Dear God, Iím writing you these words
ĎCause I know youíll understand.
Dear Lord Iím sending you this letter
ĎCause I got to leave it in your hands.


My girl, she said she had to leave
This time she said there was no doubt
No doubt about it.
I wore my heart upon my sleeve
Now I guess I wore it out.

 

 

Love Takes Two



Love takes too much time
Love is too hard to find
And Iíve heard that itís blind anyway.
Love is too involved - too easily dissolved
And ĎI doí is just too hard to say.


You want diamond rings and forever things
Seems like all that means so much to you.
Take my advice you had better think twice
Baby your just one and love takes two.


Love takes too much trust
It is all the way or bust
You canít let it rust or run away
Two people caring, two people sharing
All their hopes and dreams that they have ever made.


Letís make one thing clear you wonít ever hear
That old ĎI love you dearí but if you do
Youíll know that I am for real Ė thatís exactly how I feel
ĎCause Iím one of those that love takes two, yes it do
Iím one of those that love takes two.

 

 

A Little More Like Me (The Crucifixion)



It was an April night and I was driving
Been out on the town.
The show was at the palace
So we all went on down.
We all had a ball as I recall
But now it seems absurd
As the madness raged upon the stage
He did not say a word.


He was a little weird and we all feared
He wasnít one of us.
He didnít drink, he didnít smoke
And he didnít even cuss.
Youíd see him now and then with a bunch of men
Hanging round the sea
And I know I would have liked him more
If he were a little more like me.


It was a spring-ish day Ė the clouds were grey
It looked like it might rain.
I thought about the night before
And I was so ashamed
When I heard what they had done to him
The stranger I had known
But the way we all got down last night
Itís a wonder we got home.

 

 

I Can't Imagine Laying Down (With Anyone But You)



Itís all that I can do to make it through another day
And then it seemed to creep along, the time gets in my way
But when my work is done and the day is almost through
I canít imagine laying down with anyone but you.


I donít believe that I can move a mountain anymore
Except for when you dim the lights and lock the bedroom door
Then Iíll do anything you say you want me to
But I canít imagine laying down with anyone but you.


And every time you touch me I can feel the very first time
And when you hold my body you surely hold my mind.


The nighttime is for dreaming and pretending dreams are real
But thereís no dream that could ever touch the way you make me feel.
Darling when Iím in your arms all my dreams come true
And I canít imagine laying down with anyone but you.
No I canít imagine laying down with anyone but you.

 

 

Holdin' On To You



Iíve been the fool and Iíve been the clown
But you could always see right through
That good old boy
Good for a laugh or two.
Yeah


I tried my best to make the change
Some dreamers never do
But it donít matter at all
If Iím still holding on to you.
Holding.


Holding on to you, holding on to you
Iíll let the rest slip by me
If Iím still holding on to you.
Yeah, Baby.


Weíve had some plans and some crazy schemes
But nothing ever turned out right
Except for one that we made
Long ago on a summer night.
I still remember.


Who would have thought that weíd still be together
After all that weíve been through.
You still believe in me
And Iím still holding on to you.
Holding, holding.


Sometimes it ain't easy
Because I love you, I'm holding on to you
They said we couldn't make it
We're still together 'cause I'm holding on to you, yeah
