Somewhere Beneath These Southern Skies

CAN YOU FEEL IT
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Can you feel it?
I think we said too much too soon
And now you got me reeling
Spinning circles round this room
Did you notice me
cause I’ve been standing out here waiting baby
for a long long time
I can tell that we gotta bigger plans so
don’t you dare go change your mind
not yet

I see you standing there
heart in your hands
everything you fear
I’ll be there
I know just where i belong
for you I’ll be strong
but please don’t make me wait on this
for too much longer

I see you’ve got a new friend
well he can’t love you like i do
I said I’m through with choosing… me
just wanna spend my life with you

I’ve been seeing things all wrong these days
these days
I know you, and you know me
Together we can make it
make it on time
you, you always told me to never give up
to never give up
to never give up

I see you standing there
heart in your hands
everything you fear
I’ll be there
I know just where i belong
for you I’ll be strong
but please don’t make me wait on this
for too much longer

DON’T GIVE UP ON ME
(Jenkins/Trimble)

First class, never had a ticket made
Whole life, living in the aisle way
Back row, the window if felt so cold
Last night, singing on the interstate
Released, feeling I could breathe again
Today, heaven it don’t feel close

All I really want is someone to tell me I’m wanted
Can you hear me? I’m longing to know tonight

Gimme an answer
I need a fighter
I’m a long way off, hanging on a little string
Hoping you notice
Loaded with questions
Old enough to know, young enough to still believe
Don’t give up on me

The story that i’m living in
It’s a story in my mind
Thought life it would be different
I thought i’d have more time
And control…
It’s hard to decide
When your soul…
Is caught inside your mind

All I really want is someone to tell me I’m wanted
Can you hear me? I’m longing to know tonight

So give me an answer
I need a fighter
I’m a long way off, hanging on a little string
Hoping you notice
Loaded with questions
Old enough to know, young enough to still believe
Don’t give up on me

You know I will, I’ll come running
You know I will, I’ll come running
You know I will, I’ll come running
Yeah, you know I will

Don’t give up on me

GOOD LUCK CHARM
(Jenkins/Trimble)

I drove here to tell you I’m sorry
I ain’t been sleeping
and there’s no good way to tell ya
but I’m leaving ya here tonight

I swear tonight with God as my witness
You were important to me
But sometimes love, it ain’t easy
I always confuse what I want and I need
yes indeed

You’re the sweetest, little secret
Yes, I’m mean to the bone
You’re my good luck charm
And baby I can’t leave you alone
Would you please, please forgive me?
For draggin you over stones?
You’re my good luck charm
And baby I can’t leave you alone

So I hide away and sleep for the weekend
And do some drinkin
Feeling lonely and silent
As I try to renew my mind

But then late at night alone in the darkness
I get the notion
for maybe one more rehearsal with circles
that we’ve been spinning and now we’re caught up again
oh, my friend

You’re the sweetest, little secret
Yes, I’m mean to the bone
You’re my good luck charm
And baby I can’t leave you alone
Would you please, please forgive me?
For draggin you over stones?
You’re my good luck charm
And baby I can’t leave you alone

You’re my good luck charm
and baby i can’t leave you alone
Oh, my little secret
and I can’t leave you alone
I’m sorry
I’m sorry

TEMPTATION
(Jenkins/Trimble)

I’m thankful that we’ve made it
I should be satisfied
But we need to be the way we were
At the start, we were bold
Our legs were strong
But weakness came and changed, changed our mind

Somewhere beneath all the running
Deeper we rolled in the lie
She tried to bribe me with money
But I won’t take her side

Temptation, I don’t need you

So, I’m up here watching over
Over everything I’ve done
And I swear, I can’t believe what I see
How on earth do I fall for every bribe, every time
Greed, she won’t stay silent

She’s gonna sing like a love song
She’s gonna sound like a prize
She’s gonna promise tomorrow
But I’m not trading mine

Temptation, I don’t need you

Oh, oh she wants to live inside your mind
Oh, oh she’ll try to stay
Oh, oh dig in deep you got to fight her
Hold on to me

Temptation, I don’t need you

HONEY YOU
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Target on your back
You best be payin’ ‘ttention
There’s a war going on
Rolling up my short sleeves
and dirty britches
Keepin my eyes on ya
My eyes on

The way you move
You oughta know
ewww – do me a favor

Honey you, you and me, we’re gonna have a good time
the good and the bad
you’re the best thing I ever had
yeah you make me surrender
Honey you

Surprising me at night in a cocktail
lookin like a maggie monroe
on my knees, itchin like a beggar
I can’t relax would ya leave me alone

Pinchin pennies, for my lunch
i’m outta gas and i’m hungry for love

Honey you, you and me, we’re gonna have a good time
the good and the bad
you’re the best thing I ever had
yeah you make me surrender
Honey you

LIVE FOREVER
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Like you told me
in that story
by the moonlight
all the glory
when you wrapped me
in those mighty arms of fate

There’s a cold rain
on my forehead
There’s a warning
in these 4 chords
Sometimes you can’t run away from what you’re meant for

I don’t wanna be waiting underneath

Every birthday
I get older
I still fumble
all my words
hoping one day
I’m gonna be finding just what I’m worth

Cause there’s a yearning
deep inside me
it’s been burning
long before
tonight I can’t make it wait
anymore

I don’t wanna be waiting underneath

I wanna live forever

3000 MILES
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Silence on the radio tonight
Feels just like the first time
Out here on my own
Away from all the cars and all the fistfights
Feels just like the first time
I’m on my own

If ya called, cause ya missed me
Then just say it, that’s you’re head’s exploding out
and you need a place to hide

I wanna believe it
I need to believe it
I wanna be where you are
And be there to see it all
I wanna be closer
I’m needin to hold ya
But there’s 3,000 miles between us
You’re waiting at home

If I’m honest I’m still not sure
Don’t know much anymore
Its harder and harder to keep it straight
Straight in my mind
And I apologize
Each and every one of the last three times
Its not ok to lie

If you go, will you miss me
Then just say it, will you ever believe in love?
Let me be your place to hide

I wanna believe it
I need to believe it
I wanna be where you are
And be there to see it all
I wanna be closer
I’m needin to hold ya
But there’s 3,000 miles between us
You’re waiting at home

Home

I wanna believe it
I need to believe it
But there’s 3,000 miles between us
You’re waiting at home

THIS IS MY HEART
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Come on, come out wherever your hiding
Lay your armor down
You can sing the song of your choosing
But please don’t push me around
You know love it ain’t the answer
If you guard it close
and You don’t learn to hear the music
Please don’t refuse it

This is my heart
This is my heart

Sometimes we got caught in the fighting
We forget just who we are
Yeah we bleed for affirmation
Just to feel the want
If we learn to lean on one another
With our lies exposed
Let our honesty be clearer than any mirror

This is my heart
This is my heart

This is my heart
Please don’t refuse it
We can tear these walls right down
Come on, yeah, do you feel it?
Tonight, tonight we can turn this thing around

FAIRLANE
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Going on vacation, got no destination
But you’re next to me
Pretending it was summer, wrapped up in a blanket
It was 40 degrees
We got holes and the floor’s coming loose
Got no money, but honey our love is the truth
You and me, gonna be the festival prize

I’m gonna love you in the Fairlane
I’m gonna try to keep you smiling
Don’t you worry bout the answers
To the worries on your mind
Come put your head upon my shoulder
And hang around til we get older
I’m gonna love you in the Fairlane
I’m gonna love you for a while

Dressin up to meet ya
The sunday morning preacher
With nothing to lose
Living on suspicion, got no ammunition
But we’re fighting for truth
I might be the wandering kind
Full of emotion and hungry for violence,
I’m a backseat of dreams
And you’re my bottle of wine

I’m gonna love you in the Fairlane
I’m gonna try to keep you smiling
Don’t you worry bout your problems
They’ll be plenty more to find
I know it won’t always be laughin
Oh, and honey it’s taken a while to decide
Would you love me in the Fairlane?
Would you be for me, my bride?

One day you’ll see it and i’m hoping it’s soon
One day you’ll see me the way I see you….
Sometimes, I feel like the sun… chasin the moon
I feel the pulse between our fingers, late in the night
Beneath the cedars, and we’re synchronized
My heart is beating, to the tune of your lingering eyes

I’m gonna love you in the Fairlane
I’m gonna try to keep you smiling
Don’t you worry bout your problems
They’ll be plenty more to find

LEAD KINDLY LIGHT
(A. Hoskins/Trimble)

Lead me on
Out into the dark
I’ll try to hold the spark
Amid the circling gloom
Keep my feet
I do not ask to see
The far or distant scenes
One step enough for me

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh (Are you ready?)
My arms are open
but my heart is scared to move
Hard times are coming
only honesty will do
My love

Life
Mine but only slight
A gift to be invited
Into the world at bloom
This my path
Mine, but not by choice
Born with just one voice
One thing set to do, sing it

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh (Are you ready?)
My arms are open
but my heart is scared to move
Hard times are coming
only honesty will do
I wanna know where i belong
I wanna feel powerful
I wanna know if I belong
to you

Lead, Kindly Light
Do not fear
I’m homesick for a place… I’ve never known

DEAR ALICE
(Jenkins/Trimble)

I remember the words that you said when we left for Alaska
Let’s pack our bags in the truck with our love and go drive for a while
I can’t understand all the mysteries in this old Bible
But the closer we get, well, the harder we hurt when we fall
I can’t win them all

But I still want you
and I’m hoping deep down that you want me too
Are we worth it?
Are we worth what I put you through?
I can’t earn it
I can’t earn it, you’ve got to choose
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And I burn for you

My brother he called and said I should get back home
Out in East Tennessee where it’s prettiest there in the fall
They say that true love tells the truth even if it’s a burden
Well, I guess I’m still learning
Cause most of the time I just talk
and fill up these walls with half-hearted tunes

I’m a good man with bones that bruise
I’m not perfect
But I’m learning to tell the truth
Show me some mercy
Cause I’m hurtin, for hurtin you
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Oh, Oh

All that I wanted was never enough
All that I needed was more of your love
Please come home to me
Please come home to me
Please come home to me

CHILD
(Doody)

Gather round in the living room
Been awhile since you told her “I’ll see you soon”
Mark the ground and we’ll cover your body today

Papa’s words were they all a lie?
I heard the truth from a blackbird in the sky
It’s never easy when you bury a man to be free

It’s a blind, crying shame
When you deal, and you feel, only pain
So I lie to myself, yes I bleed down the middle
The gift that you made is worth more than a little
She’s a child, running wild and free

Faded letters laying on a shelf
Memories that were only for herself
Light a match now, leave em and light em on fire

What’s a child ever gonna say
Bout a man gone twenty years to the day
Let the light come and carry you back to your home

It’s a blind, crying shame
When you deal, and you feel, only pain
So I lie to myself, yes I bleed down the middle
The gift that you made is worth more than a little
She’s a child, running wild and free

Tell me where’s your pride
And did you ever think to miss
The ones you cast aside?

GOODNIGHT CHICAGO
(Jenkins/Trimble)

Goodnight Chicago
hope to see you soon
this whole revival
we came here just for you
don’t trade your skies
for the seas
you got the wind
but got to learn to breathe
what’s right in front of you

Wake up, Virginia
I love to watch you move
new york is just a day away
Tennessee is too
don’t leave your dreams
up in the sky
oh, you got an astronaut’s mind
honey I do too

One day we’ll all take center stage
Raise glass, join hands, and give thanks
But until then just be where you are
Sing a song for me
And we won’t give up on you

ONE DANCE LEFT
(J. Hoskins/Jenkins/Trimble)

I was gonna run my fingers through your hair
but I sold myself short again
I was making plans to grow it old with you
but I never really showed i cared

I’m alright, at least that’s what I’m selling
I still like the late nights after dark
there’s one dance left and I’m willing
two hands that need a second start

I was gonna save these feelings all for you
but I sold myself short again
the lines are blurry, but as is just won’t do
when you’re wantin to be more than just friends

I’m alright, at least that’s what I’m selling
I still like the late nights after dark
there’s one dance left and I’m willing
two hands that need a second start

and you know, you know desperate it ain’t pretty
when you feel just like you’re dying deep inside
there’s one dance left and I’m willing
two hands that need a place to hide… a place to hide
