1.  James Dean In Tennessee
       3:31
 


Joey was a fighter
And he fought to dream
He said someday he would have a fancy car
And he'd leave Tennessee

I was just a shy wallflower
Just a wide-eyed teenage girl
But maybe intrigue or just insanity
Made me want to enter Joey's world

His touch made me feel beautiful
So much passion I lost my head

Chorus
He was like James Dean in Tennessee
He was a movie star
A young girl's dream
From what I hear he could never leave
But to me he'll always be
James Dean in Tennessee

He tired to smoke them cigarettes
And he always made me laugh
He said I'd be his pick-up truck queen
And someday I'd be his better half

I left there a year ago
And I heard the rebel went bad
That he had just served time for a minor crime
And he was livin' with his old man

Repeat chorus

I wonder what ol' Joey thinks
When he hears me singing on the radio
Will he ever know I loved him so
Sometimes we're meant to stay
Sometimes we're meant to go

Repeat chorus


 








2.  You Go 1st
       3:16
 


You're kicking tires, I'm sitting on the fence
Love's falling all around us, and it don't make sense
How long can the two of us beat around the bush
We're right on the edge but we need a little push

Dancing on the tightrope, wearing it thin
Instead of closing our eyes and jumping in

Chorus
Do you want to kiss
Do you want to kiss
Do you want to kiss
Do you want to kiss
You go first

You're dodging the moon and I'm playing it safe
Look what we're not doing, oh boy, what a waste
And what could be worse than never saying it at all
Is never knowing the feeling, never feeling the fall

What's it gonna take to get us both there
Can't you see what I'm suggesting, it's a double dare

Repeat Chorus

You start is you have the nerve
I'll trust my heart, but you go first

Repeat Chorus


 










3.  The Riverside
       5:17
 


We spent all night down by the riverside
Laughin' at nothing and talking too much
And the moonlight was so bright in your eyes
Before I knew it, I was falling in love

It was too cold to swim so we just lay there
On the bank 'til the break of day
Though we never went in the water
We were swept away
And the river rolled
And the night got cold
But you held me close
And you warmed my soul
We spent all night down by the riverside

Wonderin' how it happened so fast
And it sure did take us by surprise
When that mornin' sun came up at last

It was too cold to swim so we just lay there
On the bank 'til the break of day
Though we never went in the water
We were swept away

Chorus
And the river rolled
And the night got cold
But you held me close
And you warmed my soul

Repeat chorus

We spent all night down by the riverside
It was too cold to swim so we just lay there
On the bank 'til the break of day
Though we never went in the water
We were swept away

Repeat chorus

Repeat chorus

We spent all night down by the riverside


 










4.  Whatever
       3:20
 


I used to take you at face value
You spoke, I listened and the only thing missing was
the truth
Yeah, promises, promises
Lines as honest as a three dollar bill
You talk the talk
But you don't walk the walk and I've had my fill
Going on like this is so absurd
I'm sick of these words, words, words

Chorus
You say yes, you say no
You say come, you say go
You change just like the weather
First you're up, then you're down
Say you can't hang around
Then you promise me forever
Whatever

Save your breath, I'm tuning you out
Nothing I need to hear gonna plug my ears
And sing real loud
LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA
Baby talk if you want, I don't care anymore
I'm past the breaking point
So I'm blowing this joint, yeah, I'm out the door
I used to take it all so personally
Now it sounds the same to me

Repeat Chorus
I used to take it all so personally
Now it sounds the same to me
Repeat Chorus


 









5.  Unbreakable Heart
       4:09
 


An empty house, a broken fairy tale
A hollow girl with empty arms
From an angel's tears God made the stars
Why can't He make me an unbreakable heart

In my blue world, you shone like heaven's fire
And left me cryin' in the dark
How could anyone be so hard
Did you think I had an unbreakable heart

I suppose I should know
Sometimes love just comes and goes
But I believed, foolish me
We'd go on and on

One day, someone will come to you
And rock you tightly in her arms
Please remember this, when you drop your guard
Nobody has an unbreakable heart

From an angel's wings to a fallen star
God makes everything but unbreakable hearts


 






6.  Hungry Love
       3:32
 


Back in the woods in a shotgun shack
Right above the railroad tracks
In old junk cars and tractor parts
Marylou she grew up
Hungry love

Her daddy he left with a new barmaid
Mama's in town cause she loves to play
Marylou she's all alone with an old stray dog
That she loves to hug
Hungry love

Chorus
To get away from it all she puts her headphones on
And turns the music way up loud
The first boy who comes along
And pays her any mind at all
Will be the only love she's ever found
It's in her blood
Hungry love

Marylou turned seventeen
With a baby bouncing on her knee
Her sweetheart left in a pick-up truck
So she did just what her mama had done
Hungry love

She spent her nights out in the bars
While her baby sat and watched the stars
With an old rag doll she loves so much
Growing up too fast, too tough
Hungry love

Repeat Chorus
It's in her blood
Hungry love
Back in the woods in a shotgun shack
Right above the railroad tracks


 










7.  Heart Shaped World
       3:15
 


This ain't the planet I've been living on
It don't circle round the sun
Ever since the day you came along
Everything I do revolves around you
You're my only one

Chorus
'Cause I'm waking up to love; I'm crossing new frontiers
Living in a heart shaped world
And I'm starting to see that we could stay forever here
Living in a heart shaped world

Now everybody knows the earth is round
Chris Columbus showed us that
Call me crazy but I think I've found
A reason to believe, maybe history
Should review the facts

Repeat Chorus

I've heard that love can turn your world around
But you have changed the shape of my world somehow
Everything I do revolves around you
Now I'm waking up to love; I'm crossing new frontiers
Living in a heart shaped world
And I'm starting to see that we could stay forever here
Just living in a heart shaped world...


 











8.  Iíll Take Your Heart
       3:35
 


Movin' up---where you never been
Tie your seat belt---strap yourself in
Start a rumor---nothing to it
It's a dirty job baby---but someone's got to do it

I don't want to be the lonely game in town
I just wanna be the only girl around
Yeah, I'm gonna take you straight to the top
Never ever stop---show you what I've got

Chorus
I'll take your heart---before you know it's gone
Leave you standin'---but you won't be alone
Take your rhythm---and leave you out of time
I'll take everything and give you all of mine
I'll take your heart---and you ain't gonna feel it
Can't do nothing babe, you know I'm gonna steal it

I'll take your heart---before you know it's gone

Lady luck---just be good to me
Send me love---special delivery
Ain't in a movie---I ain't on TV
I'm a livin', lovin', breathin', leadin' kinda lady
I don't wanna be alone at the end of the phone
I just wanna be the one who turns you on
Yeah, I'm gonna take you straight to the top
Never ever stop---show you've what I've got

I'll take your heart---before you know it's gone
Leave you standin'---but you won't be alone
I'll take your heart---and you ain't gonna feel it
Can't do nothing babe, you know I'm gonna steal it

Some girls will leave you all alone
Some girls won't even take you home
But this girl is gonna turn you on
You know I'm never wrong

Repeat Chorus

I'll take your heart---before you know it's gone
Leave you standin'---but you won't be alone


 






9.  I Do Now
       3:21
 


Where in the world did you come from
Seems like I looked upi and there you were
Didn't think about it then, but when I look back, I
believe now
That miracles do occur...

Chorus
'Cause I can reach up and touch any star in the sky
Put my arms 'round the moon if I try
Never thought I could feel so much love in my life
No, I never thought I'd know how...but
I do now

Is this a dream or are you real
I'm trying hard not to lose my cool
But when you're kissing me
I just get so lost in the moment
I hope I'm not acting like some kind of fool

Repeat Chorus

Never had no one to miss me
Never had no one who kissed me like you
Never had no one who loved me like you

I can reach up and touch any star in the sky
Put my arms 'round the moon if I try
Never thought I could feel so much love in my life
No, I never thought I'd know how...but
I do now


 









10.  Iíve Been Waiting For You
          3:09
 


They say Montana has a real big sky
And the Grand Canyon is deep and wide
There's a whole lot of livin' that I wanna do
But I'd rather see the world from your point of view

Chorus
I didn't go to Memphis to see the king
Or ride the Mississippi down to New Orleans
I could've found someone to give my love to
But I've been waiting for you

I've got a little money stashed away
Just sittin' on ready for a rainy day
Anticipating escaping with you
Doin' all the crazy things that I didn't do

Repeat Chorus

Oh, no I didn't wanna settle for
Just settlin' down
I was lookin' for the right one, baby
And that's what I've found

Repeat Chorus
I've been waiting for you


 










11.  Ruby Shoes
          3:21
 


The moon cast a shadow
On my bedroom wall
One silhouette not two
Nothing about this
Is familiar at all
Guess it's all what you're used to
I never pictured myself in this frame of mind
Maybe things will be different
When I open my eyes

Chorus
But my name ain't Dorothy
These ain't ruby shoes
I can't click my heels anytime I choose
And fly away
That ain't a tornado
Blowing out that door
That's the sound of him leaving
'Cause he don't love me anymore
I'll just walk the floor
Oh, but I sure could use
Some of them ruby shoes

Wish I could wave a wand
Like he waved goodbye
And change the lock on my heart
This is gonna drown on me
One tear at a time
If I don't stop it before it starts
Just sitting here wishing
Won't get it done
I know there's a road outta here
But I don't know which one

Repeat Chorus
Sure could use
Sure could use
Some of those ruby shoes...


 













12.  I Will Be There For You
          3:20
 


When I lost faith
You believed in me
When I stumbled
You were right there
For every act of love you've done
I owe you one...

There were hard times
I know we survived
Just because you stayed by my side
With all I have, with all I am
I promise you all my life...

Chorus
Whenever the road is too long
Whenever the wind is too strong
Wherever this journey may lead to
I will be there for you
I will be there for you...

Through sorrow
On the darkest night
When there's heartache
Deep down inside
Just like a prayer, you will be there
And I promise you all my life...

Repeat chorus

Repeat chorus
I'll always be there
