Lyrics From the Album "Wide Open Spaces"

I Can Love You Better
She's got you wrapped up in her satin and lace
Tied around her little finger
She's got you thinkin you can never escape
Don't you know your heart's in danger
There's a devil in that angel face
If you could only see the love that you're wastin

I can love you better than that
I know how to make you forget her
All I'm asking is for one little chance
Cause baby I can love you, baby I can love you better

I'm gonna break the spell she's got on you
You're gonna wake up to find
You're my desire my intentions are true
Hey babe I know it's time

You're gonna see what you mean to me
So open up your eyes cause seein is believin

I can love you better than that
I can love you better
I'll I'm askin is for one little change
Cause baby I can love you, baby I can love you


Wide Open Spaces
Who doesn't know what I'm talking about
Who's never left home, who's never struck out
To find a dream and a life of their own
A place in the clouds a foundation of stone

Many precede and many will follow
A young girl's dream no longer hollow
It takes the shape of a place out west
But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed

CHORUS:
She needs wide open spaces
Room to make her big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes

She traveled this road as a child
Wide eyed and grinning she never tired
But now she won't be coming back with the rest
If these are life lessons, she'll take this test

CHORUS

As her folks drive away her dad yells, "Check the Oil!"
Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm leaving my girl"
She says, "it didn't seem like that long ago
When she stood there and let her own folks know"

CHORUS
She knows the high stakes (4X)


LOVING ARMS
If you could see me now
The one who said that she'd rather roam
The one who said she'd rather be alone
If you could only see me now

If I could hold you now
Just for a moment, If I could really make you mine
Just for awhile, turn back the hands of time
If I could only hold you know

CHORUS:
I've been too long in the wind
Too long in the rain
Taking any comfort that I can
Looking back and longing for
The freedom of my chains
And lying in your loving arms again

If you could hear me now
Singing somewhere through the lonely nights
Dreaming of the arms that held me tight
If you could only hear me now

CHORUS
I can almost feel your loving arms again


There's Your Trouble
Should've been different
But it wasn't different
Was the same old story, dear John, and so long
Should've fit like a glove
Should've fit like a ring
Like a diamond ring
A token of true love
Should've all worked out
but it didn't
She should be here now
but she isn't

CHORUS:
There's your trouble, there's your trouble
You Keep seeing double with the wrong one
You can't see I love you, You can't see she doesn't
But you just keep a holding on
There's your trouble

So now you're thinking bout
All you're missing
How Deep you sinking
Round and round and dragging down
Why don't you cash in your chips
Why don't you call it a loss
Not such a big loss
Chalk it up better luck
Could've been true love
But it wasn't
It should all add up
But it doesn't

CHORUS
Should have all worked out
But it didn't
She should be here now
But she isn't

CHORUS

You Were Mine
I can't find a reason to let go
Even though you've found a new love
And she's what your dreams are made of
I can find a reason to hang on
What went wrong can be forgiven
Without you it ain't worth livin, alone

CHORUS:
Sometimes I wake up crying at night
And sometimes I scream out your name
What right does she have to take you away
When for so long, you were mine

I took out all the pictures of our wedding day
It was a time of love and laughter
Happy ever after
But even those old pictures have begun to fade
Please tell me she's not real
And that you're really coming home to stay

CHORUS
I can give you two good reasons
To show you love's not blind
He's two and she's four
And you know they adore you
So how can I tell them you've changed your mind
CHORUS
I remember when you were mine

NEVER SAY DIE
Lyin' next to you in the dark
I can feel your beating heart
You've been here beside me through the test of time
We've both had out share of doubts
Waited out those old storm clouds
But it's nights like this that I know why
Lovers like you and me will never say die

CHORUS:
Cause there's a long line of folks giving up on love
So many hearts are broken in the push and shove
I'll believe in your for the rest of my life
Baby lovers like you and me will never say die

Tears of joy and tears of pain
Tears say more than words explain
There's no need for words here tonight
We've both felt each others power
A tender touch in the wee small hours
Is strong enough to hold us for a lifetime
Lovers like you and me will never say die
CHORUS
Oh lovers like you and me will never say die

Tonight the Heartache's on Me
Could've heart a pin drop
When they walked through the door
Had to turn my eyes away
My heart fell to the floor
Someone whispered, "Where her halo?"
Cause she had an angels face
He stood there smiling, holding on
To the one who took my place
So...

CHORUS:
Tonight, the heartache's on me, on me
Let's drink a toast to the fool who couldn't see
Bartender pour the wine, cause the hurtin's all mine
Tonight The Heartache's on me

I wonder if he told her
She's the best he's ever known
The way he told me ev'ry night
When we were all alone
She'll found out when the new wears off
He'll find somebody new
She'll learn what heartache's all about
And what I'm going through
But...
CHORUS
But...
CHORUS
Yes, tonight, the heartache's on me

Let 'Er Rip
I can tell, there's something you don't wanna tell me
Its killing you 'cause words are hard to find
I know you want to break it to me gently
Well sweet baby say whats on your mind

CHORUS:
Let 'er rip, let it fly
Come on baby say it, do you think I'm gonna cry
I ain't about to bawl, and I ain't gonna die
So if you're gonna say good-bye, don't take all day and night

Why the drama, we don't have to drag out this situation
It wasn't you, it wasn't me, sometimes the chemistry don't ignite
There ain't no rings, no mortgage, there ain't any complications
It's just a hyphenated word, get it out, I'm sure I'll be alright

CHORUS
It ain't not big deal, it ain't no great loss
You and I are on the same train of thought
So you don't have to tell me where to get off
Maybe I misunderstood you, if you're leaving baby, would you

CHORUS
So if you're gonna say good-bye don't take all day and night
Let 'er rip, let it fly

Once You Loved Somebody
I should go out tonight
Get on with my life
Break these chains of solitude
With a little luck and a little help
I might even find myself
In the arms of someone new

CHORUS:
Once you loved somebody
It ain't that easy to do
Once you've loved somebody
Like I loved you

Look what you've gone and done
You've ruined everything for everyone
Who tries to steal this heart away
I can't get you off of my mind
I've tried to tell myself a million times
A little time is all it takes

CHORUS
I gave you everything that I had to give
I don't know if I can go that far again

CHORUS

I'll Take Care Of You
Times are hard and rents are high
What can a working girl do
But struggle through another day
Then I'll take care of you

Nights are long and dreams are cold
If they're all you wake up to
But should you rise with crying eyes
I'll take care of you

CHORUS:
So let them talk about us
Let them call us funny things
People sometimes do
I don't care as long
As you know I love you
Oh, and you know I do

I'll be there, but you might not see me
It's never easy to get through
But when the laughter dies away
I'll take care of you

CHORUS
I'll be there, but you might not see me
It's never easy to get through
But when the laughter dies away
I'll take care of you
Darling, I'll take care of you

Am I The Only One (Whose Ever Felt This Way)
There is no good reason
I should have to be so alone
I'm smothered by this emptiness
Lord I wish I was made of stone
Like a fool I lent my soul to love
And it paid me back in change
God help me
Am I the only one who's ever felt this way

A heart that's worn and weathered
Would know better than to fight
But I wore mine like a weapon
Played out love like a crime
And it wrung me out and strung me out
And it hung years in my face
God help me
Am I the only one who's ever felt this way

Now my sense of humor needs a break
I see a shadow in the mirror
And she's laughing through her tears
One more smile's all I can fake

There is a wound inside me
And it's bleeding like a flood
There's times when I see a light ahead
Hope is not enough
As another night surrounds me
And it pounds me like a wave
God help me
Am I the only one who's ever felt this way
God help me
Am I the only one who's ever felt this way

Give It Up or Let Me Go
Well I told you pretty baby
Such a long time ago
If I found you with another
Well, I'd walk right out your door
You might call me crazy
There's one thing you should know
Well, if you want me to love you, got to
Give it up or let me go

I know it's useless to be jealous
I wouldn't tie you if I tries
When I think you're messin' around my back
It sure brings a pain I just can't hide
Oh baby, I've been true to you
And if I can make that sacrifice
Honey you can do it too

Well, you come home drunk and nasty
You won't tell me where you've been
Just when things are nice and sweet
You're going back out again
Why do you want to mess up a good thing
I'm gonna find me another man
One who wants to give me everything

Well I told you pretty baby
Such a long time ago
If I found you with another
Well I'd walk right out the door
You might call me crazy
Here's one thing you should know
Well, if you want me to love you, got to
Give it up or let me go (2X)
