Two Highways-Alison Krauss



Two highways lay before me, which one will I choose
Down one lane I'd find happiness and down the other I would lose
There is no one that I can trust, I must decide alone
My decision is an awful one, which road will take me home

In the mornin' would I wake to find, down the wrong road I have gone
Will I hear the melodies I've searched for oh so long
Only time will tell if I have made a loser's choice
And though sadness cries my inner soul, goodbye lover moans my voice

Perils, there are many, as I set out on my way
If I lose your love I know that I can call it back someday
Rambler, lonely rambler, just 'cause anyplace is home
Nashville, lights how you have always shined

Wishing now that you had found a word or two to say
But the mornin' came and we both knew my eyes gave it away
As I kissed your cheeks and said goodbye I thought only time will tell
And you can't draw water from an empty well

In the mornin' would I wake to find, down the wrong road I have gone
Will I hear the melodies I've searched for oh so long
Only time will tell if I have made a loser's choice
And though sadness cries my inner soul, goodbye lover moans my voice

Sleep On-Alison Krauss

Could your heart ever be mine?
Your arms hold me so close to you all through the night
Your eyes gaze into mine
Sayin' I should believe you, I always do, I don't know why

Cause you taught me a lesson the hard way one time
Told me you loved me but then changed your mind
I never told no one how I hurt down inside until now
Sleep on

Could your heart ever be mine?
My arms hold you so close to me all through the night
My heart warned me this time
But I need to believe you, so I do, just for tonight

But you taught me a lesson the hard way one time
Promised to love me but then changed your mind
I never told no one how I hurt down inside until now
Sleep on

On The Borderline-Alison Krauss

There's a chill on this evening, nights right for greaving,
Darkness surrounds him as he wanders alone
He walked past the dim lights, the pathways and street lights
They remind him, of nights long ago,
When his love was strong and his muscles hard, His whiskey throat was barley marred,
Seeking misfortune in the lies that he told, Then a brokin heart bought him to his knees,
In the hour of his greatest need, Lost and forsaken by the love, he could not hold

[Chorus:]
On the Border line of love again, Its bound to make you pay
On the Border line, we'll make our stand, Then watch it fall away

And he stands in quiet solitude, The nights reflects upon his mood,
Seeking the vision that had once been so clear, When he felt the touch of his women's love
His pounding heart was warm and young, Now locked inside him with his anger and fear

As he moves on slowly, past the trees, Down the path way home through fallen leaves
He can't believe, how he'd sunken so low, So he learned to live with his injured pride
His purple heart hidden, deep inside, The only reward, for a love he could not hold

[Chorus 2x]

Gentle River-Alison Krauss

I've lived a life full of sorrow
With no where to run or to hide
Happiness you'll see is borrowed
All I want is you by my side

[Chorus:]
Gentle river take me away
to the time of happier days
All I need is love and company
Gentle river bring him back to me

You can spend all your time a'cryin
Listen here I don't need your sympathy
Cause I've made my life to live it
All I need is you here with me...

[Chorus]

Gentle river bring em' back to me

Don't Follow Me-Alision Krauss

When I step on board that big jet plane
I'll be leaving our love behind
I hope its wings will carry me somewhere
I can mend this heart of mine

[CHORUS]
So don't follow me, don't follow me
I'm bound to a place I can't recall
I feel the big jet slice through midnight skies
I'll search for the answers alone
And wait for the time to go home

Hear the wind outside, blowin' loud & strong
Hear the mighty engines moan
I'll be far from here when the sun comes up
And a love that has grown ??

[CHORUS]

I feel the wheels touch down as I awake from a dream I left with you
I hope a better day will find us soon
The love that we thought to be true

[CHORUS]

In Your Eyes-Alision Krauss

In your eyes, I see gentle rain
Springtime comes, in love again
puts me back on my feet again
and in your eyes, i feel no pain

and in my mind, I saw love walk past
a lovers dream within my grasp
I never knew I could fall so fast
but in your eyes I found love at last

I found your love waiting at my door,
I found a dream come true
I've never known a love like this before
and if you take me there, I'll be waiting for you

I found your love waiting at my door,
I found a dream come true
I've never known a love like this before
and if you take me there, I'll be waiting for you

In your eyes, I see gentle light
it gives me hope, it gives me life
it gives me love when I hold you tight
and in your eyes I found love tonight
and in your eyes I found love tonight

If I Give My Heart-Alision Krauss

If I give my heart to you tonight
Will you still be by my side?
Or will you be gone with the morning sun
Like a restless bird in flight?

Take me in your arms
Let the love you seek
Wash away your sorrow,
Let the morning be ours to keep.

And if I should tell you of the love that I feel
Will you still be there for me
Or will I awake to a faded love searching for freedoms gain

Take me in your arms
Let the love you seek
Wash away your sorrow,
Let the morning be ours to keep.

Take me in your arms
Let the love you seek
Wash away your sorrow,
Let the morning be ours to keep.

If I give my heart to you tonight
Will you still be by my side?
Or will you be gone with the morning sun
Like a bird who yearns to fly?

Song For Life-Alision Krauss

I don't drink as much as I used to
Lately, it just ain't my style
And hard times don't last like they used to
They pass quicker, like when I was a child.

[Chorus:]
Somehow I've learned how to listen
To a sound like the sun going down
And the magic the morning is bringing home
A song for a life I have found
It keeps my feet on the ground

[Solo]

The midsummer days sit so heavy
But don't they blow like a breeze through your mind
When nothing appears in a hurry
To make up for someone's lost time

[Chorus]

Foolish Heart-Alision Krauss

I think I'll take my foolish heart, my friend, and head right for the door.
There'll be a better world waitin' if I do.
'Cause I know I've been down this road a time or two before,
The only time I let my heart turn to you.

Now, I won't be blue with dreams that won't come true.
I'll take my heart, and head right for the door.

Still somethin' deep inside keeps tellin' me to make the sacrifice,
And askin' me to walk the extra mile.
I've walked it now to many times with freedom for the price.
Too many times to fight back tears behind my smiles.

Now, I won't be blue with dreams that won't come true.
I'll take my heart, and head right for the door.

I know I must seem quite unkind to wander off tonight
And leave the moon up above to hold your gaze.
It's only that my foolish heart is bound with foolish pride.
Maybe some day I'll see the sunshine upon your face.

Now I won't be blue with dreams that won't come true.
I'll take my heart, and head right for the door.

I'll take my heart, and head right for the door...

Too Late To Cry-Alison Krauss

Sitting all alone with my whisky on ice,
I wonder why he's not with me tonight.
If the rain be on tonight then I won't sleep.
I'm haunted by this loneliness I keep.

And it's too late to cry cause we left it all behind,
Too late to cry cause there's nothing left defied.
You won't get more than you're living for,
And it's too late to cry tonight.

It doesn't seem much point in us carrying on,
We pretend to cry but the feelings are gone.
I hear the death man has lost his mate,
The silence that follows him tells me about our fate.

And it's too late to cry cause we left it all behind,
Too late to cry cause there's nothing left defied.
You won't get more than you're living for,
And it's too late to cry tonight.

Empty glass before me tells the story in my eyes,
The dimness it has giving me won't let me realize.
That love is more or less the state of mind we go through,
with no guarantee to what it holds me or you.

And it's too late to cry cause we left it all behind,
Too late to cry cause there's nothing left defied.
You won't get more than you're living for,
And it's too late to cry tonight.

When You Say Nothing At All - Keith Whitley / Alison Krauss



It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
Now you say it best, when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near you drown out the crowd
Old Mister Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
Now you say it best, when you say nothing at all
