Lyrics - "On The Run" Album 2016

On The Run

 

I've got a pretty little girl

She means so much 

And if she leaves 

I'd miss her loving touch 

 

Well I can't go home

And I don't care

I broke one too many 

Hearts back there

 

Well I said it's alright

When you're on the run tonight

When you feel that rain

That's when you know ... 

You've got the lightening in your brain 

Yeah, it makes you feel so strange

 

Well I work all day 
And I break my back 

Gonna leave one day 

And I won't look back 

 

But I can't go home

And I don't care

Policeman knows 

I robbed a bank back there

 

I said it's alright 

When you're coming down tonight

When you hear that train

That's when you know

You've got the lightening in your brain

Yeah it makes you act insane. Insane. 

 

Got a pretty little girl

She means everything

One day I might buy her a diamond ring

 

Well I can't go home

And I don't care

Policeman knows 

I shot a man back there

 

Well it's alright 

When you're on the run tonight

When you feel that rain 

That's when you know... 

 

But I said it's alright

When you're coming down tonight

When you hear that train

That's when you know ... 

You've got the lightening in your brain 

Yeah it makes you feel so strange

 

You've got the lightening in your brain, boy

It makes you act insane. Insane.

Texas Girls

 

She's like a wildfire

Burning bright at night

Out with her friends

At the club

 

The next day she'll lay 

By Corpus Christi Bay 

Hanging with her legs 

Off the back of the truck 

 

There's only one ... 

Place in the world 

She comes from 

 

Texas Girls 

Just wanna have fun 

They drink their whiskey 

And then dance 'til dawn 

 

Compared to other girls, 

They're second to none

Because, Texas Girls

Deserve all of your love

 

She'll hang in river towns 

Yeah, floating 'til the sun goes down 

Getting that tan 

With all of her friends

 

Playing that music loud

With a couple cold ones around

Cuz down here 

Summer never ends

 

There's only one ... 

Place in the world 

That she calls home 

 

Texas Girls 

Just wanna have fun 

They drink their whiskey 

And they'll dance 'til dawn 

 

Compared to other girls, 

They're second to none

Because, Texas Girls

Deserve all of your love

 

Texas Girls 

Just wanna have fun 

They drink their Tequila

And then dance 'til dawn 

 

Compared to other girls, 

They're second to none

Because, Texas Girls

Deserve all of your love

 

I'm in love with a 

Texas Girl

We Can Get Along

 

All my friends

Try to say it don't mean much 

Ain't no girl that you can trust 

Way out there now

 

But I don't mind 

I still think about her time to time 

Yeah, like when I'm starting to unwind 

Late at night 

 

Well, take all of the things

That you never really said to me 

I packed up all her things 

And said we'll have to see

 

Nah nah nah 

Well I know something's going on

But if you listen to my song, Baby

We can get along someday 

 

Nah nah nah 

You ain't the only one who's doing wrong

But if you listen to my song girl

We can get along

In this big 'ole wide world 

 

Way back when 

I still think about them things again 

You know I lost a couple of my friends 

To the movie business 

 

I don't mind

I still think about 'em time to time

Yeah like when I'm starting to unwind 

Late at night 

 

Take all of the things

That you never really said to me 

I packed up all her things 

And said we'll have to see

 

Nah nah nah 

I know something's going on

But if you listen to my song, Baby

We can get along someday 

 

Nah nah nah 

You ain't the only one who's doing wrong

But if you listen to my song girl

We can get along

In this big wide world, Babe

 

Someday, someday

Ah, if you listen to my song girl

We can get along someday, Babe

Someone Like You

 

She always laughs in the rain

Sometimes the town people call her insane

Those silly things that she does

Well, they might just be 

The things that you miss the most 

 

You wanna hold her so close 

Cuz in her eyes 

You know there's still a ghost 

Of the love that she hides 

But she got some plans 

Down on the Southside 

 

When it falls apart

And you're tearing out my heart

Nights like these, 

Well, I don't know what to do 

 

I know I'll miss your body 

But I hope I find somebody 

Who's someone 

Someone like you 

 

You wanna tell her tonight

That if she leaves

You don't know how you'll surrvive 

And that you love her the most

But she's got some plans 

Out on the West Coast 

 

When it falls apart

And you're tearing out my heart

Nights like these, 

Well, I don't know what to do 

 

I know I'll miss your body 

But I hope I find somebody 

Who's someone 

Someone like you 

 

Shes talks the way you talk 
And she dances all night 

 

I know I'll miss the fight

But I hope that Mrs. Right 

Is someone 
Someone like you

Dance With Me Tonight

 

Put your arms around me girl

And dance with me tonight 

Let's forget the world 

And make it feel alright

 

It's been too long in this town 

Too long feeling down 

Put your arms around me girl 

And dance with me tonight 

 

Been waiting all week 

For this night 

You're looking for that girl 

With that look in her eyes

 

Feel your body move

When the music's right 

You stare across the room

Yeah, she's staring back at you

 

Put your arms around me girl

And dance with me tonight 

Let's forget the world 

And make it feel alright

 

It's been too long in this town 

Too long feeling down 

Put your arms around me girl 

And dance with me tonight 

 

And you never wanna see 

An end to this night 

You've been looking for that girl 

With that look in her eyes

 

You feel your body move

When the music's right 

You stare across the room 

Yeah, she's staring back at you

 

Put your arms around me girl

And dance with me tonight 

Let's forget the world 

And make it feel alright

 

It's been too long in this town 

Too long feeling down 

Put your arms around me girl 

And dance with me tonight

Wildflower Lane

 

In my mind 

She's running 'round 
And I can't even

Go to town again 

 

Cuz I know 

That there's no one there

That I would even 

Wanna share my hand 

 

Late at night 

The lights go down 
And I can still 

Hear the sound 


And I know she's there

Calling me back home ... 

 

Take me back, take me back

From where I came 

Take me back, take me back 

To Wildflower Lane 

 

I know that if I 

Hitch a ride

I could leave this 

All behind someday 

 

Visions of her 
Starry eyes

Her lucious lips

And how she sigh 

My name 

 

Late at night 

The lights go down 
And I can still 

Hear the sound 


And I know she's there

Calling me back home ... 

 

Oh, 

Take me back, take me back

From where I came 

Take me back, take me back 

To Wildflower Lane 

 

Oooh, oooh

Wildflower Lane

Dirty Mind 

 

Well my girl she's so pretty 

She's got a dirty mind

I said my girl she's so pretty 

She's got a dirty mind 

 

Yeah, we used to meet up in the city 

But now she says anywhere is fine

 

Well, my girl she's so lovely 

She's got a dirty soul 

I said, my girl she's so lovely 

She's got a dirty soul

 

Her family tries to put it on me 

But I say, Baby that's just Rock N' Roll 

Rock N' Roll 

 

One time for when she loves me 

Two times for when she leaves

Three times for when she comes back 

Crawling on her knees 

Uh huh 

I say, that's Rock N' Roll 

 

Her Mama tried to put it on me 

But I say it's always been there

At the bottom of her soul 

 

Well my girl's so pretty 

She's got a dirty mind

I said my girl she's so pretty 

She's got a dirty mind 

 

But if she ain't thinking of me 

You know I miss that girl all the time

Lyrics - "Baby L.A." Album 2015

 

Crawling Back 

 

I went up and down 

And all around

In every single

Bar in town

Just to find out 

Where you've been 

 

I was looking

For a reason why

You never thought 

Or even tried

Looking me up again

 

It's always the same, every day 

Since she went away 

I'm no good at being lonely, it's true 

So I guess I'll … 

I'll just come crawling back to you 

That's what I'll do 

And start things over, babe

 

Crawling back to you (oh)

That's what I'll do 

And show you how I've changed

 

I called up all 

Of our old friends

And asked if you'd

Run into them

But they didn't 

Have no clue 

 

I've gotta tell ya

I've been sore 

I've never felt 

This low before

Don't know what 

I'm gonna do 

 

It's always the same, every day 

Since she went away 

I'm no good at being lonely, it's true 

So I guess I'll … 

Come crawling back to you 

That's what I'll do 

And start things over, babe

 

Crawling back to you (oh)

That's what I'll do 

And show you how I've changed

 

How I've changed …

Baby L.A. 

 

Baby L.A.'s calling

From the other side 

Of the lonely USA

 

Maybe she's just bawling? 

You know she never

Liked you much anyway

 

Baby L.A. needs you

But she doesn't 

Know why

She ever feels this way 

 

Maybe if she gets through? 

She might erase

All them years of pain

 

When she calls 

I'm not home

I'm not home 

Broke my heart

Broke my heart

So she ought to know 

 

I won't go

I won't go 

In the night

 

Baby L.A.'s calling

From the other side

Of the lonely USA

 

Maybe she's just stalling? 

You know she never 

Meant much anyway

 

When she calls 

I'm not home

I'm not home 

Broke my heart

Broke my heart

So she ought to know 

 

I won't go

I won't go 

I won't go

 

Got my start 

Got my start

On the open road

 

No, I can't tell you 

How many times

The phone would ring 

And it'd start a fight 

 

I won't go 

I won't go

In the night

 

Baby L.A.'s calling

From the other side

Of the lonely USA

 

Maybe she's just bawling? 

You know she never

Meant much anyway 

 

When she calls 

I'm not home

I'm not home 

Broke my heart

Broke my heart

So she ought to know 

 

I won't go

I won't go 

I won't go

Got my start 

Got my start

On the open road

 

Now I can't tell you 

How many times

The phone would ring 

In the lonely night

No I can't tell you

How many times

The phone would ring

And it'd start a fight 

 

I won't go 

I won't go

I won't go

Got my start

Got my start 

On the open road

 

I won't go

I won't go

In the night

 

Oh, in the night

Best of Your Love

 

I can't be 

What you want me to be 

Every little thing

That you can't believe 

Get up now

Get up now 

 

There's some things 

That you can't deceive

Like the cemetery, baby

Out in the street

Get up now

Get up now 

And tell me all about it 

 

Who's got the 

Best of your loving? 

Cuz I don't know 

Where it's gone

Who's got your 

Nights and your mornings? 

Thought I was the only one

 

Live cheap 

In the big city 

Started with a kiss 

Then you're on your knees

Get up now 

Get up now

 

Cuz there's some things

That can't deceive 

Like all the pretty lies

That you said to me 

Get up now 

Get up now

And tell me all about it 

 

Who's got the 

Best of your loving? 

Cuz I don't know 

Where it's gone

Who's got your 

Nights and your mornings? 

Thought I was the only one

 

Well she's that girl 

With the diamond rings

She'll make you break down 

She'll make you sing

But deep down

She's everything

 

She's that girl 

With the pearly beads

She'll make you shake down

Or make you scream 

Deep down 

She's everything and 

You've got to keep going

You've got to keep going 

 

Who's got the 

Best of your loving? 

Cuz I don't know 

Where it's gone

Who's got your 

Nights and your mornings? 

Thought I was the only one

Go Down Slow 

 

Just because he's there

Don't mean that it's true 

Cuz baby girl, I swear

That I'll be here for you 

 

If you need some time

To run it through your mind 

We could stay out late

Find a way to unwind 

 

We could go down slow tonight 

Let your hair down

And go for a ride 

 

Tell me that you love me

Only thinking of me 

It's alright … 

It's such a beautiful lie 

 

 

Nah nah nah nah nah 

 

I know a little place

That's pretty hard to find

We could save a date

And set aside some time

 

Cuz if this thing is real 

Darling, don't be scared

I'll tell you how I feel 

You better be prepared 

 

We could go down slow tonight 

Let your hair down

And go for a ride 

 

Just tell me that you love me

Only thinking of me 

It's alright … 

 

We could go down slow tonight 

Chase our tail 

Around in the night 

 

Just tell me that you're lonely

Only waiting for me 

It's alright … 

It's such a beautiful lie

Lonely City 

 

If you need a light

When it's dark at night

I'll be by your side

For another try 

 

Just tell me 

That you won't give in 

That you'll keep on living 

 

Say you want me 

And that you won't leave 

And I'll do what you want me to 

 

Cuz it gets lonely 

In this city 

But I gotta believe in you 

And just us two 

Just us two

 

If you need some time

To run it through your mind 

I'll be by your side 

For another try 

 

Just tell me 

That you won't give in 

That you'll keep on living 

 

Say you want me 

And that you won't leave 

And I'll do what you want me to 

 

Cuz it gets lonely 

In this city 

But I gotta believe in you 

And just us two 

Just us two

Weak in the Knees

 

Everybody loves my baby 

Everybody loves my baby

When she's in the room 

All them boys go crazy 

Everybody loves my baby

 

How 'bout you? 

What you think you're gonna do boy? 

 

Everybody wants her honey 

Everybody wants her honey 

When she's in the room 

They always spend their money

Everybody wants her honey  

 

How 'bout you? 

What you think you're gonna do boy? 

 

Don't you know 

She belongs to me? 

She's the only girl 

Who makes me 

Weak in the knees

 

Don't you know 

How she longs for me? 

She's the only one 

Who's been there for me 

She's the only one

She's all I need

 

---

 

Run With You 

 

When you see her walking 

Yeah you're wondering 

What she's going out for 

Could she be headed to your door? 

 

When you hear her talking

Yeah you're dropping 

Whatever you're working on boy 

Pretty soon you'll be her toy 

 

You say, I can't lie 

Since we met 

You're always on my mind 

 

Well I … I just wanna go for the ride 

 

You're never gonna stop her

Never gonna stop her now 

Even if you wanted to 

 

But I'll run with you 

I'll run with you 

Wherever you're going to 

 

When you see her dancing

Yeah you're chancing 

That you might go over there

She can tell 

Right by your stare

 

Pretty soon you're dancing 

Your heart's romancing 

Think you're falling in love, boy

Is she the secret to your joy? 

 

You say, I can't lie 

Since we met 

You're always on my mind 

 

Well I … I just wanna go for the ride 

 

---

 

Over + Over

 

Just forget about the past 

Cuz it's all over now 

All you need to make it last 

Is just a little bit of love 

 

And I try to read 

What's on her mind 

It's not enough 

Just forget about the past 

Cuz it's all done and gone

 

Oh what took so long? 

For you to come back 

In my life

I might be wrong 

But the feeling's strong

For you to come back 

One more time 

One more time 

 

I finally figured out 

Why you're running out 

Cuz we hit the ground 

Over and over

 

Can I talk to you? 

Are you leaving soon? 

Say I'm in love with you 

Over and over 

 

Don't forget to make time to laugh 

Before it's all over now 

All you need to make it last 

Is just a little bit of fun 

 

And I try to live 

Every day of my life 

It's not enough 

Don't forget to make time to life 

Before it's all done and gone 

 

Oh what took so long? 

For you to come back 

In my life

I might be wrong 

But the feeling's strong

For you to come back 

One more time 

One more time
