[1] DONíT LET GO

Shine a light in the dark
Work your way through your sorrow
Youíve got to find the joy in your heart
And donít let go

Shine a light in the dark
See your way to tomorrow
Youíve got to find the joy in your heart
And donít let go

When youíre drowning in falling rain
When your love is all in vain
When youíre dragging a ball and chain
Everything weighing you down

Shine a light in the dark
Work your way to tomorrow
Youíve got to find the joy in your heart
And donít let go
Youíve got to find the joy in your heart
And donít let go

Woh, donít let go...

When youíre drowning in falling rain
When your love is all in vain
When youíre dragging a ball and chain
Everything weighing you down

Shine a light in the dark
Work your way to tomorrow
Youíve got to find the joy in your heart
And donít let go
Youíve got to find the joy in your heart
And donít let go

Woh, donít let go...


[2] LOVERíS MOON

Look up in the sky tonight
Big and round, giving off a mellow light
Moving in above the site
Itís a loverís moon

Drummersí circle playing loud
Thereís a horn band whipping up a side stage crowd
You and me, weíre walking proud
ĎNeath a loverís moon
ĎNeath a loverís moon

And then I feel my arms
Around your waist
Nuzzle my face in your hair
Then the taste
Of your two lips
And then my heart does a flip

Look up in the sky tonight
Big and round, giving off a tender light
Passion burning ever bright
Like a loverís moon
Like a loverís moon

And then I feel my arms
Around your waist
Nuzzle my face in your hair
Then the taste
Of your two lips
And then my heart does a flip

Look up in the sky tonight

Big and round, giving off a tender light
Passion burning ever bright
Like a loverís moon
Like a loverís moon

Keeps on burning like a loverís moon...


[3] MORE THAN A LITTLE BIT BLUE

Iím here
Youíre gone
Coal black night crawls to the dawn
And I am more than a little
More than a little bit blue

They said it was bound to be
But that brings no comfort to me
And I am more than a little
More than a little bit blue

I wonder why, why, why
We had to say goodbye
Makes me so lonesome I
I could cry

Ooh, you flew away
Youíre gone
Guess Iíll learn how to carry on
But right now, Iím more than a little
More than a little bit blue

I wonder why, why, why
We had to say goodbye
Makes me so lonesome I
I could cry

Ooh, you flew away
Youíre gone
Guess Iíll learn how to carry on
But right now, Iím more than a little
More than a little bit blue

I just sit here, and I wonder why, why, why...


[4] THE BEATING OF YOUR VERY OWN HEART

When youíre fumbling in the dark
And you just canít get a spark
Check out the beating of your very own heart

When youíre all up in a bind
And deep blue misery fills your mind
Check out the beating of your very own heart

Ooh, you might be lost on the river
Drifting from the shore
Thinking that you just canít
Take it anymore

Try put one foot in front of the other
Keep walking and discovering
The beating of your very own heart

When your world is in a spin
Fateís about to do you in
Check out the beating of your very own heart

When youíre feeling kicked around
And your life is sorrow bound
Check out the beating of your very own heart
Ooh, you might be lost on the river
Drifting from the shore
Thinking that you just canít
Take it anymore

Try put one foot in front of the other
Keep walking and discovering
The beating of your very own heart

Ooh, you might be lost on the river
Drifting from the shore
Thinking that you just canít
Take it anymore

Try put one foot in front of the other
Keep walking and discovering
The beating of your very own heart
Check out the beating of your very own heart
Listen to the music in the beating of your very own heart


[5] EDGE OF BLUE

On the edge of blue
Out there where the tears are falling
On the edge of blue
Out there where the fears are calling

Then I hear a voice
Coming from another room
Moving through descending gloom
Then I hear a voice
Changing wrong to right
Filling my heart with light

On the edge of blue
Out there where the banks are crumbling
On the edge of blue
Out there where my feet are stumbling

Then I hear a voice
Coming from another room
Moving through descending gloom
Then I hear a voice
Changing wrong to right
Filling my heart with light
And pulling me through
From the edge of blue

Then I hear a voice
Coming from another room
Moving through descending gloom
Then I hear a voice
Changing wrong to right
Filling my heart with light
And pulling me through
From the edge of blue


[6] FEELING MIGHTY LONESOME

Strumming on my old Stella
Trying to get in a groove
Having a bit of a haywire day
Like I canít get up and move

Starting to tally my blessings
All that are good and true
Like how the luckiest day in my life
Was the day that I met you

Feeling mighty lonesome
Very, very lonesome
Here all on my ownsome
Feeling mighty
Lonesome

Been in a mental prison
Been in a rotten jail
Been all of my own making
But Iím just about to get my bail

You will be home in an hour
Thatís what you said in a text
Iím gonna hug you when you walk in
And who knows whatíll happen next

Feeling mighty lonesome
Very, very lonesome
Here all on my ownsome
Feeling mighty
Lonesome

Been in a mental prison
Been in a rotten jail
Been all of my own making
But Iím just about to get my bail

You will be home in an hour
Thatís what you tapped to me in a text
Iím gonna hug you, squeeze you when you walk in
And who knows whatíll happen next

Feeling mighty lonesome
Very, very lonesome
Here all on my ownsome
Feeling mighty
Lonesome

Yeah, Iím feeling mighty lonesome...


[7] LYDIA ANNE

Lydia Anne
No one can thrill me quite like you can
Lydia Anne
Iím so thankful I am your man
Understand, Iím your biggest fan
Lydia Anne

Lydia Anne
We stroll along walking hand in hand
Lydia Anne
Living our lives and making our stand
No piece of paper or a wedding band
Lydia Anne

Well, we fell in love
Back in high school
Now I do declare
Iím still a love-struck fool for you

Lydia Anne
No one can thrill me quite like you can
Understand, Iím your biggest fan
Lydia Anne

Well, we fell in love
Back in high school
Now I do declare
Iím still a love-struck fool for you

Lydia Anne
No one can thrill me quite like you can
Understand, Iím your biggest fan
Lydia Anne
Iím so glad that Iím your man
Lydia Anne


[8] BIG MOUTH SHUT

Said a word, kind of half in fun
Now I seem to be on the run
Out in the backwoods, hiding in a hut
I should have kept my big mouth shut

Said a word, kind of off the cuff
Never dreamed it could get so rough
Now Iím like a car wheel, spinning in a rut
I should have kept my big mouth shut

You might want to pick your battles
Think, before
You play your knucklehead games
You might want to pick your battles
Quick, before
Everything goes up in flames

You might want to pick your battles
Think, before
You play your knucklehead games
You might want to pick your battles
Quick, before
Everything goes up in flames

Said a word that I shouldnít have said
Now itís ricocheting in my head
Big remorse come and hit me in the gut
I should have kept my big mouth shut

Now Iím like a car wheel, spinning in a rut
I should have kept my big mouth shut
Out in the backwoods, hiding in a hut
I should have kept my big mouth shut


[9] HEART HAVE MERCY

Come on, heart
Heart have mercy
Climb out of your secret space
I know youíre there
Deep in the hide of me
Ooh, come on, heart
Heart have mercy
Put those memories in their place
Help me get back
To the brighter side of me

Youíre the well that I crawl to
When my soul is cracked and dry
Youíre the courage I call to
When Iím too afraid to cry

Come on, heart
Heart have mercy
Climb out of your secret space
I know youíre there
Deep in the hide of me

Ooh, come on, heart
Heart have mercy
Put those memories in their place
Help me get back
To the brighter side of me

Youíre the hope that Iím saving
When I misplace the will to live
Youíre the love that Iím craving
When Iíve forgotten how to forgive
Ah, please help me remember how to forgive

Come on, come on, heart
Heart have mercy
Climb out of your secret space
I know youíre there
Deep in the hide of me

Ooh, come on, heart
Heart have mercy
Put those memories in their place
Help me get back
To the brighter side of me
I know youíre there
Deep in the hide of me
Help me get back
To the brighter side of me

Ooh, come on, heart...


[10] RUMBLE STRIP

Midnight is falling
Stretching out ahead
We should be at home
Rolling in our big brass bed
But weíre out on this highway
Doing the swerve and dip
Weíre tuned in
For the wake-up call

When the tires hit the rumble strip
Swing it back on the road
Got no time to
Hit the ditch

Gonna ride with our ears wide open
For the clatter of the rumble strip
Oh, the rumble strip

Temperature dropping
Out in the rising storm
Weíre headed for shelter
Weíll be living safe and warm
Steady hands on the big wheel
Ah, they will not lose their grip
Tuning in
For the wake-up call

When the tires hit the rumble strip
Swing it back on the road
Got no time to
Hit the ditch
Gonna ride with our ears wide open
For the clatter of the rumble strip
Oh, the rumble strip

Sometimes a guy lands right on top
Or maybe he takes a hard fall
Either way, why should a guy up and stop
Why fumble or crumble
Or let your mind get all in a jumble
Keep it right on the ball

Right on the ball

Tuning in
For the wake-up call

When the tires hit the rumble strip
Swing it back on the road
Got no time to
Hit the ditch
Gonna ride with our ears wide open
Gonna ride with our ears wide open
For the clatter of the rumble strip
Oh, the rumble strip...
