Lyrics

Thought I saw you on the road today

And if I saw you I’d wonder what you’d say.

Say you’re sorry or just turn away

Would you embrace me and squeeze the past away.

 

Chorus:

Does the ache ever go?  Does anybody know?

Will time ever heal these old wounds?

Does the past ever fade on the bed that we made

And how do we ever go on.

 

Would I forgive you?  Would it matter now at all

If I remember how far you made me fall?

Would you look diff’rent or would change be all inside?

Are you the same man who took me for a ride?

Does the ache . . .

 

If I saw you would I have the strength to smile

And make small talk just for awhile

And if I asked you would you even have a clue?

Did you love me like I once loved you?

Oh does the ache . . .

 

Oh how I wonder if ever such a day, if ever such a day.

Lyrics

I know who you are and I haven’t forgotten

As I grieve with you in your despair.

Let me lend you my spirit and the music in my soul

To lift your hopes in the air.

 

So things have changed since you were younger.

Oh how the tide turns with the rolling of the thunder.

First you’re on your feet and then you’re down under.

 

You were an actress playing your parts

Giving your all right from the heart.

Oh I remember you and the fiddler on that night

On top of your game and ev’rything was alright.

 

So things . . .

 

The years will give wisdom, years can make you strong

But the years won’t protect you from all that can go wrong.

So time passes on and something steals your thunder.

Grab hold of this life and don’t let it pull you under.

 

I know who you are . . .

Lyrics

Lived out and written in blood of the wounded

And nothing will change it all now.

But I take what I want from the mem’ries behind us

And then I throw the rest out.

I see you in stories I like to remember

The only ones I can recall

And the others that carry the bittersweet heartache

I hardly remember at all.

 

‘Cause I want what we should’ve had

But I know we just can’t.

And I try to remember it all

Just to keep on movin’ ahead.

 

And so I am able to somehow continue

And sometimes I ask myself why.

But there are no answers for those who won’t listen

For those who won’t even try.

Some call it love but we know better.

Oh yes, it was love long ago.

But now it’s just something we’ve grown to depend on

Two people who just won’t let go.

 

‘Cause I want . . .

Lyrics

I could walk forever as the wind rolls by

And catches my hair in the cool gray sky.

I could walk forever on nights like these

Through the empty streets and the tow’ring trees.

 

And the moon does her magic and I’m under her spell.

There’s firewood burning as I breathe in the smell.

And I understand life with miraculous ease

And I think about you on nights like these.

Lyrics

Verse 1

I’m standing in a desert

And there’s no one there but you.

I’m trying to escape

And there’s nothing I can do.

 

Chorus:

It’s a quicksand conversation.

I’m dying in your words.

I’m drowning in your message

And nothing can be heard.

 

Verse 2

It’s swirling all around me.

There’s nowhere else to go.

The more I try to move away

The deeper in I go.

 

Verse 3

I didn’t see it coming.

It caught me unaware.

It trapped me and it pulled me in

And I can’t come up for air.

Lyrics

Chorus:

It's not the right tie to buy a snazzy red car.

Times are kinda' hard and money don't go far.

Don't wanna make a statement or seem so bold.

Don't wanna impress you or be a star -

But then he said remember

It's ten years old.

 

Verse 1

My first car was a red Chevette.

Wouldn't've picked the color but it's all I could get.

No air, no power windoews -

But it gets me on my way.

After fifteen years of haulin' my gear

It was showin' it's age.

The end was near.

 

Verse 2

A Chevette may be small but it could hold a lot of stuff,

But we needed to expand, it was gettin' kind of rough.

A hatchback with the seat down

was just barely enough.

Then our neighbors said do you want our van?

We said okay.

It turned out red.

 

Verse 3

Then one day our other car died.

We went to see Larry for a new ride.

We drove one car, an old sedan

But it just wasn't right.

But then he says, hey man, we got something else,

Points across the lot and there's a

Shiny..., jazzy..., snazzy..., fire engine

Red car.

Lyrics

You never asked my middle name.

You didn’t care, that was my fear.

I never asked you where you’d been.

You never made it very clear.

 

You never asked my middle name

Or even if I planned to stay.

I think you knew my love was true

And would never go away.

 

I know it’s small, but it’s just this –

I wish you knew things other missed.

We share with some, take off the mask

For those we love, if they just ask.

 

I once asked your middle name

And who you loved for all times.

I sent you poems from my heart,

Only words and silly rhymes.

 

You never shared your one true love

And John you said was your name.

Our time was short, a fleeting fling

And I would never be the same.

 

I know it’s small . . .
