I remember it was Monday
Got tongue tied; you knew just what to say
Spent 3 hours in that café
I still have your number on my latté

I'm playing back all these memories
'Cause 6 months later there's no you and me
Seems to me it ended so quickly
And baby I miss you so desperately

PRECHORUS
And I don’t even know where I went wrong
Maybe it was all in my head all along

CHORUS
'Cause every time I see you I don't even get Hello
Why you’re so cold with me baby I don't know
I thought that we had something special, now my heart's hollow
It looks like you’ve moved on and now this love’s gone solo

I called you at least ten times a day
Always had our song on replay
Bought matching shirts, his and her ball caps
Weren’t you impressed by all these loving acts

Today I'm lucky if I get one word
You still won't tell me what occurred
Seems to me it ended suddenly
And baby I miss you so desperately

CHORUS

I don't want to let us go
But I know I'll have to
I just want to let you know
That I still think about you

CHORUS

Every time I see you I don't even get hello
Watched you walk away from us and now I’m left solo

Cause every time I see you I don't even get Hello
Why you're so cold with me baby I don't know
I thought that we had something special, now my heart's hollow
It looks like you've moved on and now this love's gone solo

He said, "it's for the best"
Said, "don't blame yourself."
It wasn't meant to be.
Said, "It's not you, it's me."
Said, "I've got to move on."
Where did I go wrong?

PRECHORUS
He took my heart into his hands
I guess he had different plans

CHORUS
It gets harder every day
I still daydream about our first date
I've been wrong about him from the start
'Cause everything points back to his heart

Showed up in a pickup truck
Never thought that I'd get stuck
In his cowboy affair
I never really liked those boots
(But) Something 'bout the way he moved
Swept me off my feet

PRECHORUS / CHORUS

I didn't want to fall for him
Mama warned me about boys like that

It gets harder every day
I still daydream about our first date
I've been wrong about him from the start
'Cause everything points back to his heart

I didn't want to fall for him
Mama warned me about boys like that
It gets harder every day
I've been wrong about him from the start
'Cause everything points back to his heart

I used to think that we could be
Together, forever
And now I see
it wasn't just you and me
You had someone else's heart on your mind

PRECHORUS
I can see the way you look at her
When you think I'm turned away
I can feel the way you're slowly
Drifting away

CHORUS
I'm through playing games of love
Tired not being good enough
You are just a waste of time
If you're too good to pick up the phone
Then why don't you leave my heart alone
Cause I won't take this anymore
So why don't we stop
Games of love

You used to say, you'd pick me up at eight
But you always got here an hour late
I'd stare at the clock
Wondering where you were
Little did I know you were out with her

You say you can't choose;
Boy, What's got you so confused?
Well I won't stick around
You don't wanna be tied down

PRECHORUS/CHORUS

I wish I could feel your kiss…
Not time to reminisce
Can't say you've moved on
when you never loved me all along

If You Really Loved Me

I was sitting at the bar,
Thought I recognized your car
When you pulled in
You walked in with all the guys,
So this is how you spent your nights
When I was grievin'

You're always looking for a good time
(and) I was never first in your mind
I guess we're just not meant to be
So put another on my tab,
I won't sit here feeling bad
It's time for you to see

If you really loved me, you never woulda left me
If you needed me, why was I so lonely?
Oh oh, baby, we are clearly over
I figured it out, no need to wonder
Don't try to call, don't keep my number
Oh no, it never would've come to this,
If you really loved me

I've put my thoughts in two words
Baby it's time your heard
What I've got to say
Our plans always fell through
No wonder that I left you
Keep drinking the night away

You're always looking for a good time,
Bartender, take him off my mind
So I don't have to feel so bad
I guess we're just not meant to be
I won't let that get to me
Just put it on my tab

If you really loved me, you never woulda left me
If you needed me, why was I so lonely?
Oh oh, baby, we are clearly over
I figured it out, no need to wonder
Don't try to call, don't keep my number
Oh no, it never would've come to this,
If you really loved me

While I was drowning in my tears
You were having a couple beers
Unaware of the pain I was feeling
Baby I've got news for you
I've still got my dancing shoes
Yeah, I'm healin'

‘Cause if you really loved me, you never woulda left me
If you needed me, why was I so lonely?
Oh oh, baby, do you see it now?

MODULATION
If you really loved me, you never woulda left me
If you needed me, why was I so lonely?
Oh oh, baby, we are clearly over
I figured it out, no need to wonder
Don't try to call, don't keep my number
Oh no, it never would've come to this,
If you really loved me
Sad Love Song

My heart was freed by the paper
I left our love behind… in a sad love song

This ain't one of those dumb love songs
Where the girl's torn up ‘bout some guy
'Cause I'm not one that you'll find crying
in an ocean of tears left wondering why

PRECHORUS:
Why, why does it always have to end that way
oohh ooh I, I'm gonna start a new chapter today

CHORUS:
My heart was freed by the paper
I let it all come out
The words fell down like pouring rain
And washed away the pain
Everything I felt for you
I left it all behind
in a sad love song

Now I'm not saying that it took one day
Needed time to find words to say
Tried to get my mind off you
Writing a song was the thing to do

PRECHORUS:
why, why, had to find another way
oohh ooh I, I'm gonna start another chapter today

CHORUS

OUTRO:
in a sad love song
that's where you belong
in a sad love song
I'm moving on
'cause that's where you belong
in a sad love song

Pouring rain, it's almost midnight
At last, I'm heading back to you
Can't wait to catch this last flight
Yeah, I've been away for far too long
I hope you've missed me while I've been gone
Baby, I'm on my way

It was nice for a little while
But I miss the way you smile
Don't wanna feel this loneliness

Life on the road makes me miss you and home
I don't want this anymore
I wanna kiss you slowly
Wanna hold you closely
Don't wanna have these feelings anymore
Take me home

Countless times I walked out that door
Bags packed, guitar on my back
You watched me from the front porch
Yeah, I've always got just one more show,
One more hit song on the radio
Between two worlds; I cannot choose

It's always nice for a little while
But I miss the way you smile
I start to feel this loneliness

Life on the road makes me miss you and home
I don't want this anymore
I wanna kiss you slowly
Wanna hold you closely
Don't wanna have these feelings anymore
Take me home
I-I-I I'm in Love

I've got something on my mind
Been thinking about it for some time
But I get too shy, scared that you'll deny
We may not be perfect, but I think it's worth it
Give us a try, let out what you feel inside

PRECHORUS
And I-I-I I think that we should
Yes I-I-I I know that we could

CHORUS
Put aside all the differences, and think about what really matters
I'm not gonna say it, if you're not gonna think about it
But every time I look at you, I get that love at first sight feeling
I-I-I I'm in love with you
Whoa whoa o-o-o-o

When I see you walk my way, I try to find the right words to say
My heart just stops, my tongues tied and nothing comes out
They say opposites attract, you and I sure prove that
So stop resisting, don't worry what they're thinking

PRECHORUS/CHORUS

I think about you every night, dreaming of you holding me tight
When will these dreams come to reality, it's up to you, not up to me

CHORUS
Out Of My Mind

They met on the coast one summer day
Sandy beaches, the ocean spray
Countless hours hand in hand
Hopes and dreams, their love was grand

Skies turned gray, the days turned cold,
Her restless heart he could not hold
A month of Sundays since she’s been gone
Although he tried he couldn't move on

He made his way down the familiar path
Like he did night after night
And as he walked, he put her in the past
As the sun would rise, he could see the light

On the boardwalk, the sea talked, it whispered everything's okay
He'd try to keep his head high, leave her behind,
He was better off that way
(1st) A thousand steps in darkness later, and all this time
(2nd) 23 cups of coffee later, and all this time
(3rd) Miles of walking along the sea shore, and all this time
She was out of his mind

She was his one true love
That's what made it so tough
He kept trying to forget
Guess he hadn't gotten there yet

Her memory kept him awake
All these feelings he had to shake
One night he just had enough
Grabbed his keys and a coffee cup

PRECHORUS
CHORUS

He used to be so empty
Felt tumbleweeds roll through his heart
He walked away his sorrow
Ready for a brand new start

CHORUS
Bad Love

My heart's filled with lonely roads
All the signs they point me home
But home is where my heart used to be
Yeah, I keep trying to find my way
But I can't move on hanging to yesterday
Every time I try you always make me stay

PRECHORUS
I wish I had no heartache
I wish I had no pain
Wish I wasn't standing here hiding these tears
In the pouring rain

CHORUS
We're headed for bad love, time to hit the brakes
‘cause I don't think we're on the road I wanna take
I can't go on like this, our love is on the edge
It's a matter of time this love will have a tragic end
Maybe (baby) we are better off apart
Bad love is breaking my heart

Baby this time I won't stay
It's time to go our separate ways
No more beer and pizza next to my chardonnay
You're the dark clouds in my blue sky
You're always right, you never compromise
This time you're wrong, we both need to say goodbye

PRECHORUS
I don't want this heartache
I don't want this pain
Don't wanna be standing here hiding my tears
In the pouring rain

CHORUS

If Shakespeare wrote our ending we would be apart
Sorry for leaving you, for breaking your heart

CHORUS
