  1. Can't Stop Rockin' 3:51 Lyrics

    I can’t stop, can’t stop rockin’…

    The whole thing started 1963
    Young girls screamin’
    Black and white T.V.
    I was so ready, for something to set me free
    Those four boys from England, singin’ right to me

    That night I had a dream, of a rock ‘n’ roll band
    Everyone said no, no, no. I said yeah, yeah, yeah

    I can’t stop, can’t stop rockin’…

    Never really fit in
    Couldn’t quite be cool
    Got my ass kicked up and down the halls of my high school
    When things got too crazy
    When life got too cruel
    I would just remember the boys from Liverpool

    When I was lost, they were there to hold my hand
    When everyone said no, no, no. They said yeah, yeah, yeah

    I can’t stop, can’t stop rockin’…

  2. I Still Love You 4:11 Lyrics

    I was with you, you were alone
    Now I’m standing here
    Wisdom came only after you’d gone
    Now I’m starting all over, with a tear in my eye
    I just never thought you’d disappear

    In the night your spirit arises
    With it comes the pain
    I hope I’m dreaming cus it hurts so bad
    When I reach out for you, I’m alone in some room
    I just never thought you’d disappear

    I still love you like a child
    Wasn’t that good enough?
    I still want you, it drive me wild
    The pain is just too much
    Maybe I’ve lost enough

    Time heals all, so they say, I don’t know
    Sometimes nothing’s clear
    Maybe someday I’ll understand
    But I know for a start
    There’s a place in my hear that is yours
    And it won’t disappear

    I still love you like a child
    Wasn’t that good enough?
    I still want you, It drives me wild
    The pain is just too much
    I still love you

  3. Building The Bridge 4:44 Lyrics

    Father to son, husband to wife
    Brother to brother, black man to white
    Living together, falling apart
    Looking for the common ground in every human heart
    It all comes down to the two of us
    Yeah this is where we start

    We are building the bridge
    One small stone at a time
    With a lot of love
    And some help from above
    From your heart to mine

    There’s a land of justice, cities filled with pride
    A mountain of hope, just on the other side
    Across a river of indifference, and a valley of despair
    There’s a tower of courage, piercing through the air
    I have a dream for our children, I want to take them there

    And we are building the bridge
    One small stone at a time
    With a lot of love
    And some help from above
    From your heart to mine

    As we seek out understanding
    As we learn to forgive
    When we open up our minds
    When our words are true and kind
    We are building the bridge

  4. When I Get Home 4:33 Lyrics

    I can’t kiss the telephone, I can’t hug your picture
    And these postcards just remind me how far away you are
    There’s two thousand miles of highway lyin’ between us
    But the way I feel tonight it doesn’t seem like all that far

    `Cus when I get home
    I know the first thing we’re gonna do
    When I get home
    I’m gonna turn my body loose on you
    It’s been so long, I’ve been so true
    I want you when I get home

    If I could I’d order you for breakfast every morning
    There’d be a headline story about you in my USA Today
    Every in-flight movie’d feature you and all your glory
    And into your friendly skies, this airplane would carry me away

    `Cus when I get home
    I know the first thing we’re gonna do…

    Now you could move and leave no forwarding address
    You could be living on the moon
    But I know just where you are, I don’t have to guess
    You’re waiting up for me and praying that I’ll be home safe and soon

    `Cus when I get home
    I know the first thing we’re gonna do…

  5. Then I Met You 4:52 Lyrics

    I thought I had all I could ask for
    Only a fool would think there was more
    I would never have believed
    That anything could feel brand new
    Then I met you

    I’d been around the world, and then some
    Anything I wanted I could get some
    But I had not been anywhere
    I could not share the things I knew
    Then I met you

    Ooh then I met you

    I never thought I would ever say
    That I need you the way I do
    But then I never felt what I’m feeling today
    I just never knew, then I met you

    I’ve heard my songs over the radio
    They follow me wherever I go
    I wold listen to my own words
    And wonder why they’d never ring quite true
    Then I met you…and I knew

  6. Look The Other Way 3:28 Lyrics

    I know she’s sleeping with him
    But it can’t be true
    She loves me too much
    That’s just something she wouldn’t do

    Now you may say I look the other way
    You may think I’m blind
    But I say don’t go looking for what you don’t want to find

    Wouldn’t I be the one that you’d come running to
    Wouldn’t they be my arms
    I look into your eyes as you tenderly hold me
    So safe and secure, oh how I wish I were

    I know she’s sleeping with him
    But it can’t be true…

    I say to myself, I’ve given all I can
    I tell myself this game must end
    But in the mirror do I see a new man
    Or will I look the other way again?

    I know she’s sleeping with him
    But it can’t be true…

    I know it, you know it, everybody knows it
    I can’t look the other way
    I won’t look the other way again

  7. After Tonight 4:44 Lyrics

    Staring up at the moonlight
    Looking up at the stars
    I’m alone and I just want to be with you
    But I don’t know where you are

    Maybe I took you for granted
    So blind, I let your love slip away
    Now I’m missing you so much I can’t stand it
    Please believe me when I say,

    After tonight, I never will be the same again
    This time I’m sure that nothing means more
    Than giving you all the love I can
    After tonight I promise, I’m gonna be a better man
    Just hold me tight, and I’ll be all right
    After tonight

    Anticipating the moment
    When I can make love with you again
    Patience is a virtue I’m finding
    Very hard to understand

    After tonight, I will never be the same again
    This time I’m sure that nothing means more
    Than giving you all the love I can
    After tonight I promise, I’m gonna be a better man
    Just hold me tight, and I’ll be all right
    After tonight

  8. Hey Wait A Minute 5:20 Lyrics

    Hey, wait a minute Something just ain’t right
    Hey, wait a minute Something’s just not fair
    I was supposed to win the lottery
    I’m supposed to be a millionaire
    I’m supposed to be a worldwide tourist
    With lots of equity and life insurance
    Yes I’m supposed to be a gold card member
    Rubbin’ elbows with the big time spenders
    I’m supposed to be a wealthy man
    But all I’ve got are blistered hands
    Hey, wait a minute!

    Hey, wait a minute
    There’s got to be a better way
    I’m workin’ twice as hard but gettin’ no richer
    Than I was yesterday
    I’m supposed to drive a big Mercedes
    Live in a mansion full of naked ladies
    I’m supposed to own my own casino
    Be a superstar like Sammy, Frank and Dino
    Some day I’m gonna be a big success
    And tell my boss to kiss my ass

    Hey, wait a minute
    Something must be wrong
    I’m supposed to be dining on caviar
    And drinking Dom Perignon
    Yes I’m supposed to have open invitations
    To classy country clubs all across the nation
    Yes I’m supposed to have jewelry and diamonds
    And a fifty foot yacht I can sail around the islands
    I’m supposed to be so carefree
    But all I’ve got is misery
    Hey, wait a minute
    Something’s just not right

  9. One True Man 4:43 Lyrics

    You made my decision
    Now take hold of my hand
    And I’ll promise in front of the world
    To be your one true man

    I’ll stand among my best friends
    They all understand
    That I’m changing for the better (yes I am)
    I’m your one true man

    I am your one true man
    Your one true man I am
    I’m gonna love you like no one man can
    Your one true man, I am

    Living wit me isn’t easy
    My life has its demands
    But I want you to know that wherever I go
    I’m your one true man

    I am your one true man
    You one true man I am…

    Sometimes I get so crazy
    You get so hard to hold on to
    But I won’t let you go
    Cus I know, I know who I am

    I am your one true man
    Your one true man I am
    I’m gonna love you like no one man can
    Your one true man I am

  10. She's Gonna Love Me 4:01 Lyrics

    She’s gonna love me like you never could
    She’s gonna treat me like you never would
    She’s gonna love me live I’ve never been loved before

    You should have grabbed me when you had your chance
    You got a little bit too big for your own leather pants
    I could have told you from the start
    No one’s ever taken better care of your heart
    Now your gone, I don’t care
    I’ve got a woman who will always be there, and…

    She’s gonna love me like you never could
    She’s gonna treat me like you never would
    She’s gonna love me like I’ve never been loved before
    She’s gonna spin me like a roulette wheel
    She’s gonna treat me like I’m her last meal
    She’s gonna love me and I keep comin’ back for more

    Ooh she’s gonna love me
    Ooh she’s gonna love me
    She’s gonna love me like her favorite hobby
    Throw me down and love me in the hotel lobby

    You figured I’d just always be around
    You thought we were so hot, you could have any boy in town
    Baby I’ve got some news for you
    I’ve got places to go and people to do
    Yeah, I cried a little when you said good-bye
    But now my eyes are filled with tears of joy, cus-
    She’s gonna love me like you never could
    She’s gonna treat me like you never would

  11. Ballad Of The Illnois Opry 4:10 Lyrics

    Found myself heading down toward Springfield
    The last sign said it was twelve miles west
    It’s gettin’ hard to see through the salt on my windshield
    But it looks like I’m gonna make it before the sun sets

    The morning I arrived was Lincoln’s birthday
    So I walked through his house and saw his tomb
    I decided that a tour through the Civil War Memorial Museum would be a drag
    I was tired of seeing monuments about other men’s doom

    Now I don’t want you people to think that all there is around Springfield Illinois
    Are landmarks telling `bout the good old Lincoln years
    Cus just north of town I saw a sign that said the Illinois Opry is open tonight
    And the sweet sound of country music filled my ears

    And I want to be a star in the Illinois Opry now
    The people in the country certainly know how to play
    It may be a while before I’m ready
    But I’m gonna be up on that stage someday

    I could easily write a whole song about the licks that guitar man was pickin’
    I could go on for hours `bout the old boy on pedal steel
    But I’m not singing `bout people who were just playin’ music
    I’m singing about how fine their music made me feel

    There’s a lot of people who have taken years of lessons
    Trying to learn how to make their music fit the trend
    But the simple folks at the Opry have got somethin’ special
    And I think that we all could use a lesson or two from them

    And I want to be a star in the Illinois Opry now
    The people in the country certainly know how to play
    It maybe a while before I’m ready
    But I’m gonna be up on that stage someday
