Blue
Rain on the window pane.
Tears down my face.
Sad words on the paper.
Whiskey, with beer to chase.
Things pouring now.
Memories in picture frames.
Run-ins with our old friends.
Quiet in my apartment.
Thoughts 'bout time we spent.
Reasons I cry.
Even love songs, they sound like sad songs.
Drinks with the fellas bring me down.
Tried writing to take my mind off you,
But even the ink was blue.
Loving arms to hold me.
Sweet words to pull me though.
Soft lips for me to kiss.
   You.
Good things that're gone.
Even love songs, they sound like sad songs.
Drinks with the fellas bring me down.
Tried writing to take my mind off you,
But even the ink was blue.
Even love songs, they sound like sad songs.
Drinks with the fellas bring me down.
Reread the 'dear John' that I got from you,
And even the ink was blue.

Not Gonna Think About You
Roll outta bed just a little late.
Look out the window and the sky is gray.
But I'm not gonna think about you today.
Shower, shave, and I grab my shirt.
Still smells like you and man, that hurts.
But I'm not gonna think about you today.
Work is long, but I'll take the stress
If it'll keep you outta my head.
'Cause I'm not gonna think about you today.
---------------------------------------------------------
A picture here and a memory there,
Girl you'd normally be everywhere.
But not today, no I'll be just fine.
If I can only keep you off my mind....
---------------------------------------------------------
Pick up some dinner as I'm headin' home.
Food for one makes me feel alone.
But I'm not gonna think about you today.
I stay up late but I don't know why,
With no one sittin' here by my side.
But I'm not gonna think about you tonight.
Pillow next to me is cold.
There's no one here for me to hold.
But I'm not gonna think about you tonight.

Wrote it in a Red Pen
Wrote it in a red pen, seemed like a nice touch
For the way you went and cut down our little sweet love.
Now I've got just a few words, bit of a eulogy
For me and you, now I guess it's just me.
I could write it in tears, whiskey shots or beers
but red works fine I guess.
Let's just lay us to rest and get on with our lives,
Goodbye. Amen. God bless.
Consider this a review of everything you put me through.
Bit of a critique of the terrible way you
Went and put yourself first through all the time that we spent
I'd have to say that you failed, so I wrote it in a red pen.
If we're handin' out grades for done me wrong
you're at the top of the whole dang class.
But if we're talkin' about basic human kindness,
Girl, you don't even pass.
I think it really stands out.  Bit of a testament.
Pops of the paper better than a black pen.
Consider this a warning to all the guys that follow,
Some sanguine advice:  Here lies sorrow.
Wrote it in a red pen.  Seemed like a nice

Bad Thing About a Good Dream
I look into her bright green eyes and say
I hope you know you mean the world to me.
She stares right back and says I need you so.
So much more than you could ever know.
Lean in, sweet kiss -- Snap up in bed in a cold sweat.
And that's the bad thing about a good dream
When I wake she's gone from me
I hold her tight while I'm fast asleep
But when morning comes
It was just a dream.
I roll over and smell her pillow case.
It's been empty for far too many days.
But if I try I can still smell her perfume.
So when I dream, she's right here in this room.
If I could, I'd sleep in.  Just for a few more hours of this.
And that's the bad thing about a good dream
When I wake she's gone from me
I hold her tight while I'm fast asleep
But when morning comes
It was just a dream.
Dreams and memories -- These days they're just the same thing.
And that's the bad thing about a good dream
When I wake she's gone from me
I hold her tight while I'm fast asleep
But when morning comes

Quicksand
Fool me once, shame on you;
Fool me twice, shame on me
But here I am in line for number three.
I was warned, I shoulda seen it comin',
"I told you so" will just about cut it.
Truth be told, I don't even care.
Shoulda stayed back, kept a safe distance.  
Closed my eyes and I went and missed it:
Just what that girl is for me.
Quicksand
Before you know it you're in over your head.
Ain't no one around to through you a rope,
Shoulda stayed away from that slippery slope.
Now you're heart-deep again
In Quicksand
Just one more chance seemed like a good thing,
Here I am struck out on my third swing
And that really comes as no surprise.
Maybe this time it'll turn out different
Either way, I'm in it sink or swim
One foot over the edge and I'm in

The Other Side of Goodbye
Hate seems like a strong word, but I can see it in her eyes.
She means it when she says that I'm the devil in disguise.
Ain't no one never hurt nobody like I hurt her tonight
But it ain't exactly heaven here on the other side of goodbye
She thinks she's the only one whose world is crashin' down.
I almost wish, here at this bar, she could see me now
But hatin' me helps hide the hurt so that's the way it's gotta be.
And I don't even like me now so it's all the same to me.
Every story has a hero but it sure as hell ain't me.
So I guess I'll be the bad guy 'cause that fits me perfectly.
It's not the part I thought I'd play, but at least I played it well,
'Cause this bar stool I've been sittin' on is feelin' more and more like hell.
She had so many plans for us and I ruined every one.
I never meant to break her heart, but that's what I've gone and done.
So I'll take a double shot of your cheapest whiskey, raise a glass up to the sky
And I'll drink a toast to a failed love here on the other

Damn it, Why'd You Do That?
Across the party - Lookin' sweet
Lifts her head - Looks at me.
I catch her eye - Heart skips a beat
And here I go fallin' again
Damn it, why'd you do that?
Why'd you have to go and look my way?
It's bad enough - I found you there
When you're around - I'm short on air
I know we're through - But man I swear
Why'd you have to show up here?
Damn it, why'd you do that?
Why couldn't you just stay home?
You said you needed your space,
Why don't you go get some of your own?
Things would be fine - If you'd never left
I can tell ya - I don't need the stress
You probably know that - And girl I guess
You really didn't care when you walked out.
Damn it, why'd you do that?
Why'd you have to throw our life away?
I blame you girl but I guess deep down I know
If I could just get over you I wouldn't be back down this road...
Guy in the mirror - Sucks to be him
Stuck in a world - Of what shoulda been's
Outlook for the future - Sure looks grim
Now that you've fallen for her again.

Greyhound Breakdown
Stormed out the door with just enough cash
To catch the next bus to anywhere fast
My life in a duffel bag.
Walked in on her with my best friend,
Can't say that I'm really happy with him
Guess they deserve each other.
Now I'm on a Greyhound headed outta town,
Gonna ride this bus till it breaks down
Or I do.
No Greyhound, please don't break down
And driver, please don't turn around.
As far as you can go, as fast as you can
Don't care where this trip ends.
I just can't break down...On this Greyhound.
Stuck by a drunk in the next seat
Can't tell if that smell of whiskey
Is off his breath or mine
Musta been rainin' when I got on
'Cause these can't be tears there rollin' down
My face.
Now here on this Greyhound headed outta town,
I feel like I might be about
To break down.
So Greyhound, please don't break down
And driver, please don't turn around.
Just a few more miles and I'll be alright
I just pray that I make it in time
'Cause I'm headed for a breakdown...On this Greyhound.

Can't
Like that old sport I used to play, till I wrecked my knee that day,
I can't stay away.
Like that last shot of whiskey there, I took on a double dare
Like I didn't care.
Like that bar just east of town, I always seem to drive around,
No I can't turn you down.
Girl you're like my cigarettes, my drug I just can't forget
I don't have the strength to tell you no.
A picture-captured memory, forever always stamped on me,
I wanna walk away and let you go.
But I can't.
No I can't.
Remember when you needed space, then you disappeared without a trace.
Guess I'm easily replaced.
You come back when you need a friend, but I know how it always ends
And you're out the door again.
Next time that you come around, I'd like to tell you to just get out
But I know I'll chicken out.
Girl you're like my cigarettes, my drug I just can't forget
I don't have the strength to tell you no.

Northern Twang
Michigan born and Great Lakes raised,
But I sure do love them country boy ways.
I'll take a banjo and guitar, fiddle and a bow
Just as soon as I'll take that Rock n' Roll
Two hours outta Motown was my home town,
But I can't get enough of that Tennessee sound.
Well my Wide Open Spaces may be Great Lakes,
I'm more at home on the ice than I am on the range.
I like my winters cold and my summers hot,
Snow in the spring more often than not,
But country ain't just a southern thing.
I've got Northern Twang.
I spend summer nights drinkin' on Chevy Tailgate.
You know beer was made to be drank that way.
Can't drive a straight line and not hit a lake
Which sure is great for them fishin' days.
We got a northern answer to a southern drawl
That you'll hear up north of Mackinac.
I walk my Country Miles knee deep in the snow
When my car slides off them icy back roads.
Alabama my not be my sweet home,
But that never stopped no one from singin' along.
Yeah country ain't just a southern thing.

I Only Talk to Her
I only talk to her when I'm missin' you.
Just another bad decision I never really do think through.
Nothin' really comes of it, and that's for the best.
Just another one night stand to add to all the rest.
I'll hate myself tomorrow, but that's nothin' new.
'Cause I only talk to her when I'm missin' you.
Her and I aren't meant to be and we both know
That when the sun comes through the window I'll be headed for the door.
I tell her that I love her and we both know that it's a lie
Because I haven't felt a damn thing since you said goodbye.
I come here so damn often now, it's the only thing I do.
And I only talk to her when I'm missin' you.
All this holdin' her and lovin' you is killin' me,
But as far as I can tell for now that's the way it's gonna be.
I'm headin' over there tonight, she knows the reasons too.
I only talk to her....when I'm missin' you.

Forget About You Song
I'm gonna write me a forget about you song,
It really shouldn't take me all that long.
With your lyin' and your cheatin' and your dirty double dealin'
It should be easy just to sing you gone.
First I'll talk about how we met
And all the fond memories.
That's all past tense now thanks to you girl
and your lousy rotten she-devil ways.
I was worried when I started that I'd miss you just a bit,
but would you believe that I'm havin' fun?
I'm pretty much over you, how bout that?
And we've only even finished verse one.
I'm busy writin' a forget about you song,
It really shouldn't take me all that long.
With your lyin' and your cheatin' and your dirty double dealin'
It should be easy just to sing you gone.
I guess it'd be right to feel sad about now,
Maybe cry a couple tears of regret.
But I'm realizin' now that you walkin' out
Is about as good as it gets.
It's hard for me to say what I ever mighta saw
In a cold-hearted woman like you.
See the memory's mostly slippin' and I barely even miss ya

La-la-la-leavin'
We had a fight last night
That's the third time this week.
Spent the night on the fold-out couch
And lost a night of sleep.
Now when I get home
I know just what I'll find.
It doesn't take a genius
'Cause it happens every time.
She's La-la-la-la-la-leavin' me,
At least thats what she'll say.
She'll threaten to walk out that door
If I don't change my ways.
Its all a big sh-sh-show
To make me think I'm wrong.
But this'll be the first
That I don't play along.
I heard her yell at me
Through alligator tears.
Its all just fibs and lies
And I've had it up to here.
I'm headin' down the hall
And packin' up my bags.
I think I'll take off now
Before she has the chance.
She's La-la-la-la-la-leaving me
At least thats what she said.
Wouldn't be the first time
That she stayed around instead.
Its all a big sh-sh-show
to make me feel wrong.
But it'll be her surprise
When she finds out that I'm gone.
I'm headin out the door
Yeah I've had enough.
Baby this time
I'm callin your bluff.

If
Well the tear drops are rollin' down my face,
By now they should know the way.
I found myself wishin' that we never met,
How it coulda been different that way.
I asked the genie in my bottle of Jack,
Take a little trip back in time.
I had one or two things I wanted him to change
To make sure you were never mine.
If we never woulda met, I never woulda liked you.
And If I never liked you, I woulda never loved you.
And if I never fell in love, I wouldn't have to miss you.
But we did, and I did.  So I do, and I will.
I left the barroom still sober,
The drinkin' didn't help a bit
There ain't enough whiskey in the whole damn world
To change what I already did.
If we never woulda met, I never woulda liked you.
And If I never liked you, I woulda never loved you.
And if I never fell in love, I wouldn't have to miss you.
But we did, and I did.  So I do, and I will.

Done went and cried myself dry.

I Miss When
I Know when you walked away, it hurt you too.
Now it seems that I'm the one that can't get over you.
I'm not askin' for a second chance, just a little sign that you feel.
I'm tryin' to tell myself that you haven't already healed.
I'm not sayin' I'm in love with you,
But I miss when you missed me too.
I'm findin' out that movin' on ain't as easy as they say.
I guess not everyone can just up and walk away.
There were times I hoped that you'd come walkin' back through my door.
But now I've wisened up and I don't think like that anymore.
I'm not really expecting much from you,
But I missed when you missed me too.
Maybe someday soon I'll heal just like you,
But until then I'll be thinkin' 'bout you
Yeah I still miss when...
Yeah I miss when you missed me too.

She Never Said
Well I haven't seen her since she left on that rainy night,
Packed up her bags and said her goodbyes.
Tears in my eyes, beggin' her to stay,
She just drove off into the rain.
She never said, "No, don't follow"
She never said, "I'm never comin' back"
She never said, "I'm so sorry,
I let our love slip through the cracks."
Is this really the end? 'Cause she never said
Night turns to day and days to weeks,
Looks like she's really done with me.
No final words no reasons why,
Just a quick goodbye.
She never said, "I don' love you,
It's over boy, we're done."
She never said, "I don't need you,
And I won't miss you when I'm gone."
I'm left holdin on to the words that she never said.
Well you know screw this, I'm done.
She never said, "Go ahead
And waste your time on me."
She never said, "I'm so worth it,
Stick with it boy you'll see."
So now its my turn
To say goodbye to her.
Like she never said.
