Track Name: Heartbreak Can't Last Forever
Well I walked into your place last night
And barely said hello
When you told me we were over
You didn't love me anymore
Well it’s taken time to sink in
It’s so hard to say goodbye
So I’m leaving this door cracked open
For you just one more night

I might pretend that everything is ok
I’m not sure that I could be that clever
Losing you has cut me to my very soul
You think I might've seen it coming
I can say never

Honey heartbreak can't last forever
Honey heartbreak can't last forever
Honey heartbreak can't last

The days are dark and the nights are long
Now that we've reached the end
I haven’t heard from you for days
I guess I thought we'd still be friends
What I’d give to hold you close again
And love you one more time
So I’m leaving the door cracked open
For you just one more night

I might pretend that everything is ok
I’m not sure that I would be that clever
Losing you has cut me to my very soul
You think I might've seen it coming
I can say never

Honey heartbreak can't last forever
Honey heartbreak can't last forever
Honey heartbreak can't last

It’s only been a few long days
But it seems like you’re so much farther away
And I’m stuck here in this world of pretend

Honey heartbreak can't last forever
Honey heartbreak can't last forever
Honey heartbreak, no it just can't last
Honey heartbreak can't last
Ain’t gonna last
I’m moving on, moving on
Track Name: Every Memory
It was April 1980, when I first held your hand
I remember how our fingers fit
I knew I had to be your man
You had me begging and pleading
I had to make you see€
There was no other man than me

Cause you're in every memory
In every face I see
A chance to live a dream
A part of any place I’d want to be
You’re my past and present
And the only future I can see
You’re in every memory

Sometimes love has to stumble
In order to find its way
There were darker moments
Before we hit the brighter days
I would've fought a lion
To show you I was real
There was no other way to feel

Cause you're in every memory
In every face I see
A chance to live a dream
A part of any place I’d want to be
You’re my past and present
And the only future I can see
You’re in every memory

As you stand before me
Wedding ring and all
I look back on the sad times
And the tears we both saw fall

You're in every memory
In every face I see
A chance to live a dream
A part of every place I want to be
You’re my past and present
And the only future I can see
You’re in every memory
Track Name: Call Me Lucky
It took me a long time
And the help of a few God given signs
To finally make her mine, all mine

Like breaking into Fort Knox
Her heart had its own three lock box
She had a few too many hard knocks over time

I was trying every slick move
Anything I could do to give her proof
That my love for her was right on time

Her heart was hidden by a brick wall
With gates that reached a hundred feet tall
And I was a lovesick man
Ready to climb

Some people will call me lucky
Some people get mad cause I have something they don’t
Some folks stay broken hearted
I’ve got a feeling I won’t
Call me lucky

Well I had to make a hard shift
She was looking for a love that would uplift
And I was waiting for the neon to shine

I was hanging by the bar stools
Looking to break each and every rule
Thank God for love’s sake I survived

Some people will call me lucky
Some people get mad cause I have something they don’t
Some folks stay broken hearted
I’ve got a feeling I won’t
Call me lucky

She’s a natural
She’s remarkable
She’s responsible for all of my fantasies
She’s unstoppable
Simply incredible
The things she does for me
Call me lucky

Some people will call me lucky
Some people get mad cause I have something they don’t
Some folks stay broken hearted
I’ve got a feeling I won’t

Some people will call me lucky
Some people get mad cause I have something they don’t
Some folks stay broken hearted
I’ve got a feeling I won’t
Call me lucky
Call me lucky
Track Name: She's My Life
My lady and I had been having it rough
For a couple of years or so
Nothing I thought that we couldn’t fix
If we both continued to grow

But on a Tuesday morning she took me to work
And when I got out of the car
She gave me the word
Take a taxi ride home
Tonight I’m gonna be gone

She’s my life
But she can’t live with me
I’m rough around the edges and it drives her crazy
I’m bad with money
I’m just plain lazy
And she doesn’t want me around anymore

She’s my life and my life was empty
The minute that she closed that door
She’s my life and my life don’t love me no more

Well it wasn’t long after she served me the papers
And changed the locks on the house
She called all my friends
And gave her views of her lazy no good spouse

And on a Wednesday morning
She called me at work
And when she got me on the phone
She said she had known
For six months or so
That she’d be walking out that door alone

She’s my life
But she can’t live with me
I’m rough around the edges and it drives her crazy
I’m bad with money
I’m just plain lazy
And she doesn’t want me around anymore

She’s my life and my life was empty
The minute that she closed that door
She’s my life and my life don’t love me no more

Oh man it’s killing me
Knowing this one’s over and done
No matter what I tell myself
I feel like I’m the lonely one

Its only been a month or so
But I know she’s moving on
Sad thing is, if she said the word
Back to her I’d run

She’s my life
But she can’t live with me
I’m rough around the edges and it drives her crazy
I’m bad with money
I’m just plain lazy
And she doesn’t want me around anymore

She’s my life and my life was empty
The minute that she closed that door
She’s my life and my life don’t love me no more

No more
She don’t love me no more
She don’t love me no more
Track Name: We Don't Kiss Like That Anymore
Remember when we used to kiss
So long we didn’t take a breath
Those were the kinda kisses that
Would make me wanna sweat
Those were the kind of kisses
That we thank the French for
Well we don’t kiss like that anymore

Oh we don’t kiss like that anymore
It just takes too much time away from our chores
Honey when you’re kissing me like that
It knocks me to the floor
We don’t kiss like that anymore

Remember back when we first met
They couldn’t break us apart
We were locked at the lip and attached heart to heart
Back then, kissing was what Friday nights were for
Well, we don’t kiss like that anymore

Oh we don’t kiss like that anymore
It just takes too much time away from our chores
Honey when you’re kissing me like that
It knocks me to the floor
We don’t kiss like that anymore

After all those hugs and all those kisses
All our friends are calling us Mr. and Mrs.
There ain’t never enough time
for love and all of its bliss
Come on girl, give me one more hit

Hey, we don’t kiss like that anymore
It just takes too much time away from our chores
Oh, Honey when you’re kissing me like that
It knocks me to the floor

Oh, we don’t kiss like that
Oh, we don’t kiss like that anymore
Track Name: Another Dry Place
I’ve had broken hearts
And I’ve had broken dreams
I’ve worn scars above
And I wear scars beneath
I count the miles in between
As I push my tired feet

And I’m praying for a welcome change
And I look for luck to rearrange
There’s no way to escape this rain
Except to look for
Another dry place

I’m driven by a beat
That doesn’t know an end
I’m looking for a stranger
That’s got an ear to lend
Listen to this message
That I’m struggling to send

And I’m praying for a welcome change
And I look for luck to rearrange
There’s no way to escape this rain
Except to look for
Another dry place

Did you hear the bad news
About a broke man paying extra dues
Another broken heart born to lose
Cause he’s looking for a better road to choose

Did you hear that man sing his blues
About the many times he broke the rules
It was all that he could do

I’ve got a hand full of hopes
And I’m hanging on by a thread
I’m trying to say something
That's already been said
I'm pretending I’m the strongest man
When inside my eyes are wet

And I’m praying for a welcome change
And I look for luck to rearrange
There’s no way
To escape this rain
Except to look for
Another dry place
Another dry place
Another dry place
Track Name: Shame On Me
Day in, day out
We always travel the same route
Leave home early
Get home late
Boy, but I can hardly wait
To see my lady’s pretty face

Shame, shame shame
Shame on me

I’m working all the day and the night
While my girl I never see
With a special lady
Like the one I love
You know I’m living in misery

Shame, shame shame
Oh honey, shame on me

One hour, maybe two
There’s always so damn much to do
A hello hug and a goodbye kiss
That’s what we call wedded bliss
That little girl is hard not to miss

Shame, shame shame
Shame on me

I’m working all the day and the night
While my girl I never see
And with a special lady
Like the one I love
You know I’m living in misery

Shame, shame shame
Oh honey, shame on me

How can I be so many miles
From a woman blessed with so much style
Why can’t I just stay in one place
Soaking up all of that beauty and grace

Shame, shame shame
Shame on me

I’m working all the day and the night
While my girl I never see
And with a special lady
Like the one I love
I’m living in misery

Shame, shame shame
Shame, shame shame
Shame, shame shame
Shame on me
Shame on me
Shame on me
Track Name: Dancing With A Friend
One day you’ll count the second hand among your closest friends
For allowing you the time to see another day begin
And the music we call life
Is the heart that beats within
Swirling all around you
When you’re dancing with a friend

Sometimes the pathway branches off
To pastures much less green
And takes away the luster of the love we wish to feel
But life soon picks another beat
To start a better trend
And the melody is sweeter
When you’re dancing with a friend

Hands and hearts will hold
The dance is long and slow
And all you’ll need to know

Hands and hearts will hold
The dance is long and slow
And all you’ll need to know

So now you feel the rhythm of the days that lie ahead
And the dreams that stand within the strength of words that you have said
And your dreams won’t ever have to end
They will never leave you
When you’re dancing with a friend

Dancing with a friend
Dancing with a friend
Track Name: Trouble In A Skirt
She likes to flirt, but boy, you’re in over your head
She plays you like a winner, then kicks you to the curb instead
That smile turns you into a sucker right on site
You go from royalty to the jester in a single night

She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
The devil in heels, she hits you where it hurts
She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
One minute king of the hill, face down in the dirt

She wears black stiletto heels, with bare legs to pave her way
And that low cut blouse is guaranteed to make your day
Those pretty blue eyes are begging you to hold her tight
And then she rocks your world when she ends up with another guy

She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
The devil in heels, she hits you where it hurts
She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
One minute king of the hill, face down in the dirt

Her black book is filled with a thousand names
They saw that body and got trapped by her evil ways
Well maybe you could be the one who manages to win the fight
Cause it’ll take a crazy man that has to keep that woman for life

She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
The devil in heels, she hits you where it hurts
She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
She makes you feel like a man and then kicks you to the curb

She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
The devil in heels, she hits you where it hurts
She’s trouble, trouble in a skirt
You’re one minute king of the hill, face down in the dirt
Track Name: The Thin Blue Line
Steven was one of Carolina's finest
He was proud to wear the badge
And drive the black and white

He was an honest man
A good husband, and a father
That read his daughter stories when
she went to bed at night

He made sure to tell his wife he that he loved her
He told her to feel good about the way he spent his life
And he called himself a man of education
Cause every other night he taught somebody else
how to see wrong and right

And he said,
If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

All I wanted to do is care
For my family
And give the world a little more light
While I walk the Thin Blue Line

Steven was a beat cop down in Charleston
From the Meeting Street extension
to the city market lights
He knew the freaks out on every corner
And the rats in every crevice, he knew where to find

And he held his gun with the right kind of confidence
When the sirens started crying
and the night was feeling tight
And sometimes his wife would have
a hard time sleeping
Cause she knew her man was out there somewhere keeping rule in the night

And he said,
If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

All I wanted to do is care
For my family
And give the world a little more light
While I walk the Thin Blue Line

It was late on a Thursday when he was called to action
A robbery in progress
He was the first on site
And he never saw the man behind the counter
He never had a chance to tell
his wife and child goodnight

And through the tears she knew somewhere
someone was thankful
For the life that he had given to uphold what was right
After all he was a man of education
Helping us all to see a better way of life

And she would hear him say,
If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

All I wanted to do is care
For my family
And give the world a little more light
While I walk the Thin Blue Line

If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

Thin Blue Line
Track Name: Two Nights In A Row
One night she’s one hundred degrees
The next night fifty below
One night she says yes to me
And the next night she says no
All that I can say is girl you drive me crazy
When we’re dancing toe to toe
I’d like to know if I could get a little lovin’
Two nights in a row

Two nights in a row oh come on honey
I’ll even give you some shopping money
Two nights in a row I’ll take you to dinner
If you take me home and make me a winner
Well come on pretty girl, you know I’m goin’ crazy
Like a geyser getting ready to blow
I’d like to know if I could get a little lovin’
Two nights in a row

One night she’s got a smile for me
The next night it’s a frown
All I’d like to know are the three magic words
That will make her want to fool around
Come on little girl you know I’m goin’ crazy
Like a geyser getting ready to blow
I’d like to know if I could get a little lovin’
Two nights in a row

Two nights in a row oh come on honey
I’ll even give you some shopping money
Two nights in a row I’ll take you to dinner
If you take me home and make me a winner
Well come on little girl, you know I’m goin’ crazy
Like a geyser getting ready to blow
I’d like to know if I could get a little lovin’
Two nights in a row

Two nights in a row oh come on honey
I’ll even give you some shopping money
Two nights in a row I’ll take you to dinner
If you take me home and make me a winner
Ah come on pretty girl, you know I’m goin’ crazy
Like a geyser getting ready to blow
I’d like to know if I could get a little lovin’
Two nights in a row
I’d like to know if I could get a little lovin’
Two nights in a row
