SWEET COWBOY KISS

Every spring
My cowboy brings
Me bouqets of blossoms
Breathtaking
Hands shaking
Soft brush of lips
Heart robbing
Pulse throbbing
Sweet cowboy kiss

~~~*Chorus*~~~
His confidence, faith and pride
All wound up within the ride
This is where a cowboy has control
It's everything he knows
Making room for something new
Takes a little time to do
Hard to believe...
He's not afraid of anything
Anything but me
~~*~~

Every night
My cowboy writes
Me letters of promise
I'm waiting
Anticipating
Futures full of dreams
Strength showing
Love growing
Cowboy and me

~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
 Circuit life is such a rush
I get a glance and a pretty blush
Bucking broncs and raging bulls
A life of stitches and broken bones
Hard to believe...
He's fearless of these things
No he's not afraid of anything
but me...
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
His confidence, faith and pride
All wound up within the ride
This is where a cowboy has control
It's everything he knows
Making room for something new
Takes a little time to do
Hard to believe...
He's not afraid of anything
Anything but me
~~*~~
Soft brush of lips
Sweet cowboy kiss
~~*~~

THE FIRST TIMES

I've been with...
My share of men
I've known pain...
I have been loved
But there's nothing 
like the first time
When you...
 Can't get enough

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Enough of his attention
All that I won't mention
Challenge flashing in the eyes
I've never found
Feelings as profound
As the first times
~~*~~

And oh boy it's tough...
So tough
Because you'll never...
No...
Never
Never get enough...

Not enough...
 Of his laughter
Or his body...
 By your side
You go beyond 
Your comfort zone
For the first time 
In your life

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
When his voice sets into motion
All those phantom butterflies
Life couldn't be more excellent
When a rainy day still shines
It all shines...
With the first times
~~*~~
But oh boy it's tough...
So tough
Because you'll never...
No...
Never
Never get enough...

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Enough of his attention
All that I won't mention
Challenge flashing in the eyes
I've never found
Feelings as profound
As the first times
~~*~~

MAKE YOUR DADDY PROUD

My Daddy 
He was old school
The master of his house
When he said no
We said yes sir
He never had to shout
When he laid down the law
We heard every word he said
Don't play with fire
Don't run with sticks
And you boys use your heads
That's what my Daddy said...

~~~*Chorus*~~~
We listened to our Daddy
While we had the chance
When you've got one 
As fine as mine was
You'll always want them back
Listen to your Daddy's words
Be good and make him proud
Don't wait to change
Your rebel ways
Until he's not around
Start now...
Make your Daddy proud
~~*~~
We loved him
We were good Sons
Our Daddy's pride and joy
And we listened
Tears still glisten
He raised respectful boys

When he laid down the law
We heard every word he said
Don't ever lie
Don't you be mean
Be smart, and use your heads
That's what my Daddy said...

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Don't wait till he's in Heaven looking down
Do it now
Make your Daddy Proud
~~*~~

~~~*2 nd Chorus*~~~
Listened to your Daddy
While you have the chance
When you've got one 
As fine as mine was
You'll always want them back
Listen to your Daddy's words
Be good and make him proud
Don't wait to change
Your rebel ways
Until he's not around
Start now...
Make your Daddy proud
~~*~~

MY SPRINGTIME

Beneath the snow
lifeless and cold
No warmth to touch
What longs to grow

Seeking the sun
Hopeless as it seems
Keeping the faith
There is always spring

~~~*Chorus*~~~
You're my springtime
Golden sunshine
Warmth that wakes me
From my sleep
Empty shoulder
Long to hold you
Springtime...
Come to me
~~*~~

Under the dirt
Lonely and hurt
A plain old seed
Awaiting birth

Caress me sun
For when you're done
The beauty blooms
As love shines through

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Find me in my prison
The darkness no veneer
Beg to touch me
Fight to love me
And rescue me from here
Be the sun that finally comes
Close enough for heat and light
Come to me...
Springtime
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
You're my springtime
Golden sunshine
Warmth that wakes me
From my sleep
Empty shoulder
Long to hold you
Springtime...
Come to me
~~*~~

ATTITUDE

If you really want to know...
I'm feeling
Feeling like I could explode
I'm busting up in here
On the verge of tears
And you can't understand
Life is getting
Life is feeling
Like it is out of hand

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I need sweet summer breezes
Time alone with Jesus
Quiet for an hour or two
Beauty for my eyes
Bright sunny skies
For a better attitude
Yeah...
That'll do
~~*~~

If you really cannot tell...
You're blinded
Blinded by your selfish needs
You're not the only clown
The world revolves around
Oh, my limits, you do test
Life is loving
Life is giving
And don't forget you're blessed

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
I adore you beyond reason
Even when I don't approve
Good thing that there's Jesus
To adjust my attitude
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I need sweet summer breezes
Time alone with Jesus
Quiet for an hour or two
Beauty for my eyes
Bright sunny skies
For a better attitude
Yeah...
That'll do
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
When I can't get through
Reasoning with you...
I need Jesus
Cause only Jesus
Can help my attitude
~~*~~

DON'T HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE

I wish I didn't have to leave you all alone
But it's time for me to go
Don't cry
We don't have to say it
Don't have to say goodbye

~~~*Chorus*~~~
No goodbyes...
I'll see you soon
Count the days
The sun and moon
The brightest skies
The darkest nights
La la la
No goodbyes
~~*~~

I will see you again 
With the changing of the winds
I'll come back, and I'll never leave again
For now someone's in need
And though you can' t come with me
Remember, love, that time really flies
And we don't have to say it 
Don't have to say goodbye

~~~*Chorus*~~~
No goodbyes...
I'll see you soon
Count the days
The sun and moon
The brightest skies
The darkest nights
La la la
No goodbyes
~~*~~

SIMPLE WORDS

You wrote me a note
That said I love you
So why don't I feel satisfied
Why do those simple words
 That everyone has heard
Always seem to be applied

~~~*1st chorus*~~~
Don't write I love you 
On the beach shore
The tides will wash it all away
Prove it to my heart
So it remains a part
Of me 
Every single day
~~*~~

To say I love you
Has become easy
Proof is what I now desire
Don't use those simple words
 That everyone has heard
Show me, set my heart on fire

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Babe I love you
Might be true
Love that ring
Ooo, love those shoes
Love that painting
Love this day
Simple, simple words to say
~~~*2nd chorus*~~~

Don't write I love you 
On the sand dunes
The wind will blow it all away
Prove it to my heart
So it remains a part
Of me 
Every single day
~~*~~
