Just You And Me-Tracy Lawrence

Baby take off your coat we ain't in no hurry
I see the fear in your eyes but girl don't you worry
I'll keep the candles lit all night so you'll know everything's all right
We've got everything we need and it's just you and me
I've got the covers turned down come lay here beside me
Oh baby let down your hair and your doubts about me
I'm gonna make you feel tonight like you've never felt in your life
We've got everything we need and it's just you and me
There ain't no one around and the only sound is your heart beating next to mine
Cast your fears in the fire give into your desire put your faith into me
Cause I've got everything we need and it's just you and me
[ guitar ]
There ain't no one around...
Oh baby let down your hair and your doubts about me


Lonely-Tracy Lawrence

There's a red brick in a white wall
Somebody's brush forgot to paint so it sits there all alone
Like a hopeful sinner who finally goes to church
She don't sit among the Christians cause she questions her own worth oh she's lonely
Lonely like the way you left me nothing I know's gonna get me through losing you
The worst of loves analogies are tangled up inside of me
But the only one that brings me to my knees is lonely

There's a man in his own prison with a crime nobody knows
He has sentenced himself to life with no pardon or parole oh he's lonely
Lonely like the way you left me...
[ guitar ]
Lonely like the way you left me...
Oh oh lonely
I'm a red brick in a white wall somebody's brush forgot to paint lonely

Lessons Learned-Tracy Lawrence

I was ten years old the day I got caught
With some dime store candy, that I never bought
I hung my head and I faced the wall
As daddy showed me wrong from right
He said this hearts me more than it does you
There's some things son, that you just don't do
Is anythings I'm sayin getting through
Is daddy I can see the light

Oh lessons learned, man they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh there's no way around it
'Cause this world turns
on lessons learned

Granddaddy was a man I loved
He bought me my first ball and glove
Even taught me how to drive this truck
Circling that ol' town square
He spoke of life with a slow southern drawl
I never heard him, 'cause I knew it all
But I sure listened when I got the call
That he was no longer there

Oh lessons learned, man they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh there's no way around it
'Cause this world turns
on lessons learned

Oh lessons learned, man they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh there's no way around it
'Cause this world turns
on lessons learned

Long Wet Kiss-Tracy Lawrence

If I was lost on the ocean stranded in the middle of the sea
I'd have to live on devotion hopin' that you'd rescue me
If I was nearin' the end and runnin' out of time
The only thing that would keep me alive
It's your long wet kiss in the mornin that I can't resist
Can't deny it when it feels like this there's nothin' more I would miss
Than your long wet kiss
[ guitar ]
Some men are driven by diamonds some they are drawn to gold
I could live life on desire with only your body to hold
If I was pushed to the edge and had to offer my life
Darling I would pay any price I wouldn't think twice
It's your long wet kiss...
[ guitar ]
It's your long wet kiss...

As Lonesome As It Gets-Tracy Lawrence

I've been sittin' here alone in the darkness
With the sound of goodbye ringing in my head
I don't know how much longer I can go on like this
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
For a long time now we've been drifting apart
I should have been glad to see you go
But now that it's over and you're on a silver jet
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
If it rained straight whiskey forty days and nights
It wouldn't be enough to numb this hurt I feel
Keep this lump that's in my throat from chokin' me to death
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
[ guitar - fiddle ]
When they dig a six foot hole in the ground and throw the dirt over me
Just let these words mark my final place of rest
This is as lonesome as it gets damn sure as lonesome as it gets
If it rained straight whiskey...
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets

I Hit The Ground Crawlin-Tracy Lawrence

It's true I lied I cheated and the truth is that ain't all
While you were thinking of me I was busy thinking of myself
I never gave and I took all I needed running wild until you walked
And since you left if you're wondering where I fell
Well I hit the ground crawlin' I heard your memory callin'
And I can see from the bottom of this bottle I'm clinging to
That the reason you're long gone is that I treated you so wrong
But I hit the ground crawlin' right back to you
[ guitar ]
To get us back together I'll cry I'll beg I'll bend
I swear I've learned my lesson darling don't give up on me
Cause the nights go on forever will the heartache ever end
Can't stand to live without you I'm begging on bended knees
Cause I hit the ground crawlin'...
Yeah I hit the ground crawlin' right back to you

Livin' In Black And White-Tracy Lawrence

In A Moment Of Weakness-Tracy Lawrence

I knew she was lonely and I was alone
A stranger in a strange town too far from home
Her eyes blue as diamonds her hair black as coal
I could feel her desire burning like fire right down to my soul
In a moment of weakness who would have known
God was in heaven you were at home
I could have easily fallen forgotten till dawn
But in a moment of weakness your love held strong

I could say I wasn't tempted that would be a lie
A man is only human man and she was so alive
Could have said it didn't matter thrown caution to the wind
Could have been in her arms truth is my heart wouldn't let me give in
In a moment of weakness...
In a moment of weakness your love held strong

One Step Ahead Of The Storm-Tracy Lawrence

Broke down on the interstate just outside of Wichita
I said dont' worry baby it'll be alright
Two young and crazy kids who thought we knew it all
California hunger in our eyes
I could smell the rain I could feel the wind I could see the clouds rolling in
But in the arms of love we stayed safe and warm one step ahead of the storm

Our California dreams went south so we headed east to Baton Rouge
You said don't worry baby it'll be alright
Louisiana holds a brighter day had my doubts to tell the truth
But through it all you were right there by my side
I could smell the rain...

Hard times knocking at your door from the cradle to the grave
You gotta fight like the devil just to keep the wolves at bay
[ guitar ]
Hey I could smell the rain...
Oh we were one step ahead of the storm

Any Minute Now-Tracy Lawrence

I always pride myself on being strong you've never seen me cry and carry on
But after seeing you with your new love suddenly I'm all choked up
Any minute now you're gonna see years of tears rolling down my cheeks
A flash flood of old memories will come pouring out
Any minute now it won't be long it's been coming since you've been gone
I'm holding back what I can't hold on I'm gonna cry out loud any minute now

Said I'd always live by my own rules swore I'd never be nobodys fool
Thought I knew how to hide the pain but that's all about to change
Any minute now you're gonna see...
Any minute now oh oh any minute now any minute now

Coast Is Clear-Tracy Lawrence

Say the weather in Atlanta is foggy and gray your work gets harder everyday
And your new boyfriend is holding on too tight
I got a gig at the beach a room with a view the only thing missing here is you
Some fresh ocean breeze might ease your mind
We could walk barefoot through the warm wet sand
Take a second look at what we had
I been thinkin' a lot since I been here
Past the neon lights and the LA haze I'm a different man these days
So come on out the coast is clear

Got a picture in my wallet from back in '91
That week we spent in the Santa Belle sun
Ridin' the wave of our love those were good times
But somewhere I got lost and let you down
Young and naive I didn't know what I'd found
But I do now and there ain't a cloud in my mind
We could walk barefoot...
Yeah come on out the coast is clear
Oh oh oh the coast is clear oh oh oh the coast is clear the coast is clear

Better Man, Better Off-Tracy Lawrence

The hardest thing I'll ever do is to walk away still loving you
But I'd give anything if you loved me something's just ain't meant to be
Can't say it's all been time lost
And in the long run I'd be a better man better off
Gonna find my pride and self esteam get on with my life follow my dreams
Ain't lookin' back
Learn from my mistakes once I've past this heartache
I know when the hurtin' stops I'll be a better man better off

I know Rome wasn't built in a day there's a lot of good mem'ries in my way
If I had it all to do over again wouldn't change a thing cept for the end
You want to be something you gotta pay the cost
But in the long run I'll be a better man better off
Gonna find my pride...
[ guitar ]
I'm gonna learn from my mistakes once I've past this heartache
I know when the hurtin' stops I'll be a better man better off
A better man better off a whole lot better off
[ guitar ]

From What We Give-Tracy Lawrence

Johnny Baker works down at the mill
Makes enough to make ends meet and pay his bills
Even though he comes from the wrong side of the tracks
He's the first on there to lend a hand or give the shirt right off his back
From what we give we make a living those dollars diamonds and gold
But that old cliche is a given you reap what you sow
When you reach out your hand and your heart then your soul is satisfied
From what we give we make a living from what we give we make a life

Mr Miller's got a mansion on the hill
He spent his whole life chasing that almighty dollar bill
But all his so-called riches somethings missing in his soul
It takes more than havin' everything to make a man feel whole
From what we give we make a living...
[ guitar ]
When you reach out your hand...
What we give we make a living from what we give we make a life

Stars Over Texas-Tracy Lawrence

As you lie in my arms girl my heart's on my sleeve
Words come so hard in moments like these
There's feelings I have that are so hard to show
But right now there's one thing I want you to know
As long as the tides ebb the earth turns the sun sets I promise I'll always be true
As long as there's stars over Texas darling I'll hang the moon for you

I know I have stumbled and caused you some tears
When you needed me most I haven't always been here
I know I'm not always the man I should be
But don't ever wonder what you mean to me
As long as the tides ebb...
[ mandolin ]
And as long as there's stars over Texas darling I'll hang the moon for you
Darling I'll hang the moon for you

Excitable Boy-Tracy Lawrence

I was one or two just lying in my crib
Shaking that rattle like I always did
Susie strolled in that little girl next door
Next thing you know we were rolling on the floor
Mama came a runnin' to her little pride and joy
Said bless his little heart he's an excitable boy

High school redneck rebel to the bone
Running eighty miles an hour in a thirty mile zone
Steal a little kiss skip a little school
Break another heart bend another rule
Cop tells the principal he's only making noise
Cut the kid some slack he's an excitable boy

I've been a renegade since the day I was born I get a little carried away
Never meant to do nobody no harm I gotta rock it I can't stop it
I ain't about to change
[ fiddle - guitar ]
Parking with my darling fogging up the glass
Slipping cross the truck seat tryin' to make a pass
My baby said stop we gotta take it slow
But you know me I'm always raring to go
It's the way I am I don't have no choice
What can I say I'm an excitable boy
I've been a renegade since the day I was born...
What can I say I'm an excitable boy what can I say I'm an excitable boy
[ guitar - piano ]
Ah you know I just can't help myself it's just the way I am

Somewhere Between The Moon And You-Tracy Lawrence

Sittin' here in Fort Worth and for what it's worth it might as well be Timbuktu
Girl I'm missing you
The further I go in life the more I realize I'm no closer to that elusive moon
I can't put out your fire cause everywhere I turn there's a memory to burn
Somewhere between the moon and you
I fought the chill of the cold hard truth
That rainbow I've been chasin' left my whole world blue
I lost my dreams somewhere between the moon and you

I still see you smile and it haunts me every mile along this winding road
That I walk alone
They say that time should ease the pain but in my heart a bitter rain still lingers on
Could I have been so wrong
I climbed that ladder thinking' I could never fall until I lost it all
Somewhere between the moon and you...
[ steel ]
That rainbow I was chasin'...

I Know That Hurt By Heart-Tracy Lawrence

Speed Of A Fool-Tracy Lawrence
