01 They Don't Know Me In Nashville I don't come from any place you might have been before I don't come from any place you might recall as having seen In a movie or a book, for it's a little place Not the kind of place you would know. They don't know me in Nashville, They don't know me anywhere at all I'm just a small town boy with silly dreams And I dream of it all and more, much more, And maybe some day out in Nashville They'll be singing, singing all my songs ***** Every place I've been I've just been there drifting Every place I've seen I just drifted there by chance And my songs they come drifting from my soul Yes my songs hey come drifting from my soul. ***** You don't set your sights too high in Smallsville You don't climb mountains at all. The hills are just too far away And there's tales of them being too tall But still, you dream of what if and of what might be And you start singing, and climbing them mountains all.

02 Are You Going To Hold Me Tonight Are you going to hold me tonight Or do have to sleep all alone I didn't mean to start a fight Are you going to hold me tonight Are you going to hold me Are you going to hold me tonight Or will I have to lie wide awake Are you going to hold me tonight Are you going to hold me Are you going to hold me to night I can't sleep when I'm alone Are you going to hold me tonight You look so pretty when you sulk But please don't do it tonight This here bed is getting cold Come on over and hold me tight I said I'm sorry and it's true I didn't mean to anger you All I said was that's a pretty dress Just too bad it wasn't on you

03 Wild Horses Driving Me Away Wild Horses driving me, Wild Horses driving me Wild Horses driving me away They won't let me stay, they won't let me stay They won't let me stay Wild Horses driving me, Wild Horses driving me Wild Horses driving me away Every time I settle down I dread I'll hear that distant sound Of hooves that are pounding and shaking up the ground They won't leave me alone, they won't leave me alone Wild horses wont leave me alone It's something I have done, something I have done Those Wild horses will come for me For something I have done. There's nowhere to hide, there's nowhere to hide There's nowhere to hide Wild horses (will come for me) Wild horses (will come for me) Wild horses (will come for me)Time and time again

04 I Got A Fire In My Soul If you look at me will you tell me what you see Do you see a river running cold. If you look at me I am sure that you can see See the fire burning in my soul. I got a fire, I got a fire, I got a fire burning in my soul. You need some Fire, you need some Fire You need some Fire burning in your soul. When you face your day can you tell me how you feel Do you feel you're sinking in a hole? When you face your day can you tell me how you feel Are you lost, your life just a role? Now every time you do anything that you do Do you do just because you have to Yes every time you do anything that you do Do you do but you don't really want to Fire, Fire, Fire burning in your soul

05 Let's Just Say Let's just say we were playing a little game And you came to me Not for what I might be but for what I am. And for a little while we put aside What anyone else might say And we take each other just for what we are Just for what we are. Looking at each other through everybody's eyes. Worrying about everybody's words. Let's just say, just for once we give ourselves Give ourselves, give ourselves a chance. Let's just say, you and I we ask ourselves in all honesty If we were meant to be as a You and I or as a We

06 All I Can Send You Is Love I see a dear friend, head low, crying. Mourning for the loved one he's lost forever today I want to soothe him, give him some comfort But words just fail me, what, oh what can I say I feel your heartache, but can't stop your grieving. All I can send you is Love All I can send you is Love. All I can send you is Love Nothing I do, nothing I say can make things better It's a sad wind that blows today I feel your heartache, but can't stop your grieving All I can send you is Love In a field that is quiet now, alone he is standing. Wondering what the past has for him today Sunshine will never mean blossoms again A touch of golden sparkle passes unnoticed his way I know you're reminiscing in your sad and lonely way But all I can send you is Love

07 My Dog Is My Very Best Friend My dog is my very best friend, My dog is my very best friend He may chew all my shoes, dig holes in my lawn My dog is my very best friend If you've ever had a dog then you'll know what I mean Dogs are truly special, ( Our dogs can sometimes drive us nuts) Their love is to be seen They only see the good in us, they're blind to our faults Dogs are our buddies, our very very best Friends. My dog has a melodious voice, my dog has a melodious voice When it's late in the night and the neighbours want to sleep My dog he will sing them lullabies. My dog likes my brand new car, my dog likes my brand new car When I've given it a wash and got it sparkling clean My dog he will perfume every wheel. My dog likes to read the daily news. My dog likes to read the daily news When the morning papers arrive my dog is first to grab them He won't miss a single page. My dog's water bowl is always kept clean Every day I fill his bowl with fresh clean water Then my dog goes and drinks from the drain

Up And Down 04:48
08 Up and Down You're going Up, I'm going Down You're going In , I'm going Out You're in the Clouds, I'm on the Ground You're going Up, I'm going Down I've been trying for ages to turn things around But all I've been doing is pulling you down Now it's time to face things square in the eye Call it like it is, and we know why There's a pretty picture hanging on the Wall Of a bird that's flying up in the sky You don't see happy birds on the ground Call it like it is, happy birds are those that fly One day if I'm lucky I'll find another bird And maybe by then I too would Fly But knowing what I am I wouldn't hold my breath Call it like it is, I never was made for the sky

09 Sweet Memories Are Calling Me Home Sweet memories are calling me home It's been too long, been too long, since I've been home Yes those sweet memories are calling me home To think that I once thought happy days would follow me Everywhere, anywhere. I've travelled the world , chased rainbows everywhere. Everywhere. But what can I say, I lost those happy days And now these memories are calling me home. Sweet memories of a place where life was good When enough was enoughand simple was best And everybody shared. Sweet memories of friends who were friends Through happy and sad, good times and bad, And you knew they really cared.

10 Where Were You Last Night Where were you, last night, where were you Where were you, last night, where were you Where were you, last night, where were you Where were you, last night, where were you. This time the hurting is really bad, I never knew I could feel so sad It's not the empty house, it's not this quiet home It's the heartache of being so alone. I came home last night, feeling kind of blue I'd had a hard day and I needed you But all that met me was a door left ajar Where were you baby, where were you. I've messed up so many times, hurting you so I've been a fool I know And you've run out of reasons for hanging on And now it's finally come the time for letting go.

11 Things A Man Will Never Learn Every time I walk away I tell myself I'll never, never return But here I am outside your door once again, I guess there's some things a man will never learn. Oh there's always some things, There's always some things A man will never learn. You took me to the cleaners with your sorry tales And perfumed letters. While I cast aside all reason and put on my shiniest armour And when I caught on to your lies you fed me sweeter. Every day another lie but I wanted to be lieve And so I believed them all Every lie a sweeter lie but I could not, would not see And so I believed them all You led me to a land of make-believe And it was filled with wonders I'd never seen before And soon that stardust was real to me And I couldn't bring myself to leave For where I came from had lost its color.
