Track Name: Crack In My Heart
What happened to the girl I knew
I don't like what's become of you
I can't believe I loved you way back when

You walk the streets in funny clothes
Your arms are sore with dirty holes
Baby, won't you just come home again

Don't think I'm happy
Sitting in my shiny car
When I hear your street jive rapping
It puts a big crack in my heart
It puts a big crack in my heart

I warned you not to play with fire
But city lights were your desire
I must admit you left me feeling had

If I could I'd take your place
But I'll just kiss your battered face
And baby, don't you know it makes me sad

Don't think I'm happy
Living the life of a star
I miss you on my sheets of satin
And It puts a big crack in my heart
It puts a big crack in my heart
Track Name: Money's No Good
Bought myself a brand new Cadillac
But the repo man says he wants it back
Guess I missed a payment or two
Easy terms too good to be true

Sure like my life but the money's no good
Sure like my life but the money's no good
Sure like my life but the money's no good
The money's no good, the money's no good

My sweet little baby was feeling bad
Took her to the doctor's seeing what she had
Doctor said "Well, she aint't got long
"Cause without insurance I'm sending her home"

Sure like my life but the money's no good...

You all know how the story goes

Went to the boss to see about my raise
He said "You're lucky you even get paid
"You'd better learn to work for free
"Or I'll send that job right overseas"
Track Name: With You
My friends all say
Drinking every day
Makes them feel okay
Keeps the blues away

Who needs the whiskey?
Who needs the hooch?
I get my high with you

My daddy cheats
He wonders the streets
While my mama sleeps
He's under strange sheets

Who needs fast women?
Who needs to cruise?
I get my kicks with you

L.A. is crazy
Action going down
Let's stay lazy
Keep fooling around

Who needs the city?
Who needs the loons?
I'm happy here with you
I'm happy here with you
Track Name: If We Fall
Fairy tales and child like prayers
Don't always mean it's true
Working hard is in the cards
At least for me and you

We may never be the heroes
Standing proud and tall
We may go down as the losers
Slower on the draw
At least we'll be together if we fall

Walk around this side of town
And pain is all you see
Broken teeth and petty thieves
And crippling disease

There were never guarantees
That we would have it all
No one ever promised that we'd
Not run into walls
At least we'll be together if we fall

We may never see the day
When justice is the law
And we may never hear the trumpet
Sound a mighty call
At least we'll be together if we fall

At least we'll be together if we fall
At least we'll be together if we fall
At least we'll be together if we fall
At least we'll be together if we fall
Track Name: When You Smile
Girl, when you smile
You smile so dear
Girl, when you smile
You smile sincere

After a while
I loose my guile
And smile

Girl, when you dance
You dance so fine
Girl, when you dance
You dance divine

You took the chance
I'll take a chance
And dance

I understand that the world is cold and mean
I understand that the world can steal your dreams

But girl, when you love
You love so sweet
Girl, when you love
You love so complete

We stay above
The push and shove
When we love

Girl, when you smile
Track Name: When Goodbye Is All You Say
I’d love you to tell me
The corner has been turned
I wish you could show me
The lesson has been learned

But I feel a restless wind
Blowing your way
You explain so perfectly
When goodbye is all you say

Your life is a drama
That never settles down
While you keep on flying
I watch you from the ground

You don’t have to lie again
I know you’ll stray
No one speaks a truer word
When goodbye is all you say

Loving you has filled my heart with pain and regret
Still somehow my biggest fear is my love you’ll forget

I will never waste your time
Begging you to stay
I have said it all before
When goodbye is all you say
I whisper please hurry home
When goodbye is all you say
Track Name: Rose Hill
Walking on Rose Hill
Soldiers sleep so still
Faces long forgot
Nation's wounds are not

Georgia volunteer
Sad they marched you here
Laid beneath the stone
Far away from home

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Walking on Rose Hill
Soldiers sleep so still

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
(I'm walking on Rose Hill)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
(I'm walking on Rose Hill)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
(I'm walking on Rose Hill)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
(I'm walking on Rose Hill)
Track Name: Someone Waits (For Elvis)
I hope Heaven is everything you thought
I hope you’re there and you are not lost
May angles sing with voices
Praising all that's true
And love alone rejoices
And someone waits for you

I hope there is never any want
I hope your soul is glowing like the sun
May loved ones be together
May all things old be new
And joy will last forever
And someone waits for you
And someone waits for you
Track Name: Mary Went To War
I just heard the bad news
Mary has died in her boots
Everyone in town is so sad
They're flying the flags at half staff

Cause Mary won't be coming home no more
Mary went off to the war

Mary was my dear friend
We dated a little back then
But she couldn't find a career
Beyond serving truckers their beer

Now Mary won't be coming home no more
Mary went off to the war

Her recruiter said
Good things lie ahead

Mary was shipped to Baghdad
To fight 'em there the leader said
She never saw the I.E.D.
Or the profits Halliburton sees

Now Mary won't be coming home no more
Mary went off to the war
Track Name: How Long?
How long must I wait
For my bitter fate?
How long must I wait here for you?

Will these blood shot eyes
See beyond disguise?
How long must they wait to see you?

How long?
How long?
How long must they wait?

Will the Moon and Sun
Know when the day is done
If they're not guided by you?

How long must I wait
At the rusted gate?
How long must I wait here for you?

How long?
How long?
How long must I wait?

How long?
How long?
How long must I wait?
