Lyrics

  • 1. Stand

    ‘Cause when push comes to shove
    You taste what you’re made of
    You might bend ‘til you break
    ‘Cause it’s all you can take
    On your knees you look up
    Decide you’ve had enough
    You get mad, you get strong
    Wipe your hands, shake it off
    Then you stand, then you stand

    Life’s like a novel with the end ripped out
    The edge of a canyon with only one way down
    Take what you’re given before it’s gone
    And start holdin’ on, keep holdin’ on

    Every time you get up and get back in the race
    One more small piece of you starts to fall into place – yeah

    Yeah then you stand – yeah
    Yeah, baby
    Woo hoo, Woo hoo, Woo hoo
    Then you stand – yeah, yeah

  • 2. What Hurts The Most

    I can take the rain
    On the roof of this empty house
    That don’t bother me
    I can take a few tears now and then
    And I just let ‘em out
    I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
    Even though goin’ on with you gone still upsets me
    There are days every now and again
    I pretend I’m okay
    But that’s not what gets me

    Chorus

    What hurts the most
    Was being so close
    And havin’ so much to say
    And watchin’ you walk away
    And never knowin’
    What could’ve been
    And not seein’ that lovin’ you
    Is what I was tryin’ to do

    It’s hard to deal with the pain
    Of losin’ you everywhere I go
    But I’m doin’ it
    It’s hard to force that smile
    When I see our old friends and I’m alone
    Still harder gettin’ up, gettin’ dressed, livin’ with this regret
    But I know if I could do it over
    I would trade, give away
    All the words that I saved in my heart
    That I left unspoken

    Not seein’ that lovin’ you
    That’s what I was trying to do
    Oooo, Oooo, Oooo –

  • 3. Backwards

    I was sittin’ on a bar stool in a barbeque joint in Tennessee
    When this ole boy walked in and he sat right down next to me
    I could tell he’d been through some hard times
    There were tear stains on his old shirt and he said –
    “Ya wanna know what ya get when you play a country song backwards?”

    Chorus

    Ya get your house back – ya get your dog back
    Ya get your best friend Jack back
    Ya get your truck back – ya get your hair back
    Ya get your first and second wives back
    Your front porch swing, your pretty little thing
    Your bling, bling, bling and a diamond ring
    You get your farm and the barn
    And the boat and the Harley
    First night in jail with Charlie
    It sounds a little crazy, a little scattered and absurd
    But that’s what you get when you play a country song backwards

    Well, I never heard it said quite like that
    It hit me in the face
    ‘Cause that’s where I’m at
    I almost fell flat out on the floor – he said
    “Wait a minute, that’s not all, there’s even more”

    Chorus

    Ya get your mind back, your nerves back
    Your first heart attack back
    You get your pride back, get your life back
    You get your first real love back
    You get your big screen TV
    A DVD and a washing machine
    You get the pond and the lawn
    The bail and the mower
    You get to go back where you don’t know her
    It sounds a little crazy, a little scattered and absurd
    But that’s what you get when you play a country song backwards

    We sat there and shot the bull about how it would be
    If we could turn it all around and change this C-R-A-P

  • 4. I Feel Bad

    I should be out in that driveway stoppin’ you
    Tears should be rollin’ down my cheek
    And I don’t know why
    I’m not fallin’ apart like I usually do
    And how the thought of losin’ you’s not killin’ me

    Chorus

    I feel bad
    That I can stand here strong, cold as stone
    Seems so wrong, I can’t explain it
    Maybe it’s just I’ve cried so much
    I’m tried and I’m numb, baby I hate it
    I feel bad
    That I don’t feel bad

    I could let myself be angry over wasted time
    And sad about just throwin’ love away
    Yeah, I almost wish my heart was breaking
    But I can’t lie
    All I want to do is turn the page

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Bitter, alone
    I just feel it’s time – it’s time to move on
    I just gotta move on and on and on and on – yeah

    Maybe it’s just I’ve cried so much
    I’m tired and I’m numb, oh baby I hate it
    I feel bad
    That I don’t feel bad
    No, I don’t feel bad

  • 5. My Wish

    I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
    And each road leads you where you want to go
    And if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose
    I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
    And if one door opens to another door closed
    I hope you keep on walkin’ ‘til you find the window
    If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
    But more than anything, more than anything

    Chorus

    My wish for you
    Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
    Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
    You never need to carry more than you can hold
    And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
    I hope you know somebody loves you
    And wants the same things too
    Yeah, this is my wish

    I hope you never look back but you never forget
    All the ones who love you
    And the place you left
    I hope you always forgive and you never regret
    And you help somebody every chance you get
    Oh, you find God’s grace in every mistake
    And always give more than you take
    But more than anything, yeah more than anything

    This is my wish
    I hope you know somebody loves you
    May all your dreams stay big

  • 6. Pieces

    From the moment that we met
    My world was turned around, upside down
    To some degree I still regret my memory
    For keeping you around
    Girl, I thought that you were mine
    But my broken heart’s been shattered
    One too mine times

    Chorus
    And I don’t wanna see you anymore
    I’m just not that strong
    I love it when you’re here
    But I’m better when you’re gone
    I’m certain that I’ve given
    And oh how you can take
    There’s no use in you lookin’
    There’s nothin’ left for you to break
    Baby, please release me
    Let my heart rest in pieces, in pieces

    Someone let you down again
    So you turn to me, your convenient friend
    Oh, but I know what you’re doin’ and what you hope to find
    I’ve seen it a thousand times
    All the fire we had before
    Are now just bitter ashes
    Left scattered on the floor

    We both know that you don’t need me
    Let my heart rest in pieces, in pieces
    Let it rest

  • 7. Yes I Do

    Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo

    Do I cry in the night
    Do I long to hold you tight
    Do I wake wanting you
    Yes I do

    Do I recall every day
    How you took my breath away
    Do I remember loving you
    Yes I do

    Chorus
    Yes I do dream of all we had together
    Guess it’s true we lost it all forever
    Do I pray anyway
    Yes I do

    I don’t live in the past
    Wanting love that wouldn’t last
    And I don’t ache like I used to
    Yes I do

    Yes I do
    Do I pray
    Yes I do dream of all we had together
    Yes I do – and yes I do

  • 8. To Make Her Love Me

    You waved your hand and it was done
    Said let it be and there it was
    A mountain so high
    It broke through the sky
    A canyon so deep
    It’d bring a man to his knees

    Chorus
    I’ve seen what you can do
    I’ve seen you make miracles
    And hopeless dreams come true
    You made the heavens and the stars
    Everything – come on, how hard could it be
    To make her love me

    I said some things I shouldn’t have
    Tried everything to win her back
    I’m human, I messed up
    Is she gone, are we done
    Forgiveness, another chance
    That’s all I want, it’s in your hands

    To make her love me – yeah, yeah, yeah
    To make her love me – Ooo, Ooo, Ooo

  • 9. Words I Couldn't Say

    In a book in a box in the closet
    In a line in a song I once heard
    In a moment on a front porch late one June
    In a breath inside a whisper beneath the moon

    There it was at the tip of my fingers
    There it was on the tip of my tongue
    There you were and I had never been that far
    There it was the whole world wrapped inside my arms

    And I let it all slip away –

    Chorus
    What do I do now that you’re gone
    No back up plan, no second chance
    And no one else to blame
    All I can hear in the silence that remains
    Are the words I couldn’t say

    There’s a rain that’ll never stop falling
    There’s a wall that I’ve tried to take down
    What I should’ve said just wouldn’t pass my lips
    So I held back and now we’ve come to this

    And it’s too late now –

    Are the words I couldn’t say
    I should have found a way to tell you how I felt
    Now the only one I’m tellin’ is myself

    What do I do, what do I say
    And no else to blame
    All I can hear in the silence that remains
    Are the words I couldn’t say

  • 10. Me And My Gang

    Way on down to southern Alabama
    With the guitars jammin’
    That’s where we’re headed
    Straight up to Butte, Montana
    Singin’ “Lord, I Was Born a Ramblin’ Man”
    California to Oregon, even New York City
    Got one or two hillbillies
    Ready to hit the road

    Chorus
    It’s a brothers and a sisters kind of thang
    Raise up your hands if you all wanna hang
    With me and my gang
    We live to ride, we ride to live
    Me and my gang, jump on that train
    Grab hold of them reigns
    We’re gonna rock this thang, cock this thang
    Me and my gang, yeah – me and my gang

    We got hippies, gypsies, freaks and geeks
    High class women in Daisy Duke denim
    Bangin on gongs and singing our songs
    Dude named Elrock jammin’ on an iPod
    Beer and bonfires
    Wide open throttle
    Coors in a bottle
    It’s all for one and one for all, ya’ll

    Yeah – Woo!
    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na

    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na

    Yeah – With me and my gang
    Jump on that train – whoa!
    Grab hold of them reigns, baby!

  • 11. Cool Thing

    We were wrapped up in a blanket
    Red wine buzz kickin’ in
    A little Sarasota moonlight
    Driftwood fire burnin’
    She was on break from Ohio State
    And I was down there sellin’ parasail rides
    Just another summer day
    Till I strapped her in and watched her fly

    Chorus
    Talk about a sunset
    All I could see were purples and reds
    And her silhouette wavin’ goodbye
    She didn’t come there lookin’ for love
    And the cool thing was
    Neither did I and neither did I

    She dipped down in the water
    As I slowed down holdin’ that line
    Wet T-shirt on a two piece
    We ditched that boat and hung outside
    And we walked ankle deep in ocean
    You know that place where footprints disappear
    Just like that evenin’ she drove away
    It’ll be burned in my mind for a million years

    Woo, woo, woo

  • 12. Ellsworth

    Grandma burned the biscuits
    Nearly took the house down with it
    Now she’s in assisted livin’
    We all knew that day would come
    We knew she was too gone to drive
    The day she parked on I-65
    Found her on the shoulder cryin’
    She didn’t know where she was

    It’s like her mind just quit
    Oh, but bring up grandpa
    It’s like someone flipped a switch

    Chorus
    A front porch light and blue Desoto
    Couple of straws in a Coca-Cola
    You could see it all goin’ down
    A handsome boy in army green
    A tear on his face, down on a knee
    Shaky voice, a diamond ring
    She’ll put you in that town
    Tomorrow she won’t remember what she did today
    But just ask her about Ellsworth, Kansas 1948

    She takes out his medals
    A cigar box of letters
    Sits and scatters pictures
    Black and whites of days gone by

    We started losin’ her when she lost him
    But to hear her carry on
    You’d swear she’s seventeen again

    Chorus
    Football games and leaves are cracklin’
    Walking her home in his letter jacket
    You could see it all goin’ down
    A perfect night on a front porch glider
    Sayin’ goodnight for the next three hours
    Her tired eyes grow wide and bright
    When she talks about that town
    Tomorrow she won’t remember what she did today
    But just ask her about Ellsworth, Kansas 1948

    While the world is fading all around her
    Sharin’ a sundae at the counter
    He’s goin’ on and on about her
    Bet she’s right there right now
    Tomorrow she won’t remember what she did today
    But just ask her about Ellsworth, Kansas 1948

  • 13. He Ain't The Leavin' Kind

    They tried their best to drag him out
    Of a courthouse down in Montgomery
    And now they wanna kick him out of school
    And take him off our money
    They can take those words off of paper and stone
    But he ain’t gone, no

    Chorus
    He ain’t the leavin’ kind
    He’d never walk away
    Even from those who don’t believe
    And wanna leave him behind
    He ain’t the leavin’ kind

    She stayed mad at him for a lot of years
    For takin’ her husband
    Started losin’ her faith
    And thinkin’ that her life meant nothin’
    But when she looks at those kids she raised all by herself
    She knows she had some help, yeah she knows

    No matter what you do
    No matter where you go
    He’s always right there with you

    Even from those who don’t believe
    And wanna leave him behind
    He ain’t the leavin’ kind

    No, no
    He ain’t the leavin’, he ain’t the leavin’ kind
    He ain’t the leavin’ kind
    He ain’t the leavin’ kind
