    How You Ever Gonna Know

    That old wind that's whippin' out there..
    It's whistlin' your tune..
    That wind blew pyramids to Egypt..
    And footprints to the moon..

    And that old star that you been wishin' on..
    Is shinin' mighty bright..
    But it's the fire in your heart..
    That's gonna lead you to the light..

    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like to live there..
    How you ever gonna know victory..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like when dreams become reality..
    How you ever gonna know..
    How it feels to hold her..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like to dance..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you never take a chance..

    You know failure isn't failure..
    If a lesson from it's learned..
    I guess love would not be love..
    Without a risk of being burned..

    Anything in life worth havin'..
    Lord, it has its sacrifice..
    But the gift you're receiving...
    Is worth more than the price..

    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like to live there..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What you never knew..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you're down here doin'..
    What the good Lord put you here to do..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you could have done it..
    How you ever gonna know..
    How it feels to fly..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you never dare to try..

    Listen not to the critics..
    Who put their own dreams on a shelf..
    If you want to get the truth to admit it..
    You gotta find out for yourself..

    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like to be there..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you're the best..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What you believe in..
    If you don't put it to the test..
    How you ever gonna know..
    How it feels to hold him..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What livin' means..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you never chase the dream..

    How you ever gonna know..
    Your potential..
    How you ever gonna know victory..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like when dreams become reality..
    How you ever gonna know..
    How it feels to hold her..
    How you ever gonna know..
    What it's like to dance..
    How you ever gonna know..
    If you never take the chance..



    She's Gonna Make It

    He followed her to work this morning
    He'd never seen that dress before
    She seemed to sail right through
    Those dark clouds forming
    That he knows he'd headed for

    After seven years of marriage
    He wanted out
    Now after sevon months of freedom
    It's clear that there's no doubt

    She's gonna to make it
    And he never will
    He's at the foot of the mountain
    And she's over that hill
    He's sinkin' at sea
    And her sails are filled
    She's gonna make it
    And he never will

    And you know it's not like she's forgot about him
    She's just dealing with the pain
    And the fact that she's survived so well without him
    You know it's driving him insane

    And the crazy thing about it
    Is she'd take him back
    But the fool in him that walked out
    Is the fool who just won't ask

    She's gonna to make it
    And he never will
    He's at the foot of the mountain
    And she's over that hill
    He's sinkin' at sea
    And her sails are filled
    She's gonna make it
    And he never will



    I Don't Have To Wonder

    Drove to the Church
    In my suit and tie
    But i just couldn't bring myself
    To go inside

    So I sat alone
    In my truck across the street
    Watched the chauffer smokin' cigarettes
    By that long limousine

    I could just imagine
    What was goin' on in there
    Sunlight streamin' through the stained glass
    And those flowers in her hair

    And in less time than it takes a tear to fall
    Those bells rang loud as thunder
    As they opened up the doors
    Now I don't have to wonder anymore

    Laughin' and cryin'
    Tossin' that bouquet
    And when you got in that limo
    I drove off the other way

    And I still don't know
    Why thing happened like the did
    But I parked that old pickup
    On that lonesome river bridge

    I took your ring from my pocket
    And I held it one last time
    Watched that diamond sparkle
    I drew back and let her fly

    And in less time than it takes a tear to fall
    Those bells rang loud as thunder
    As they opened up the doors
    Now I don't have to wonder anymore

    Well the angels sang like thunder
    As I felt my self go under
    Now I dont have to wonder anymore



    Two Pina Coladas

    I was feelin' the blues
    I was watchin' the news
    When this fella came on the TV
    He said I'm tellin' you
    That science has proved
    That heartaches are healed by the sea.
    That got me goin'
    Without even knowin'
    I packed right up and drove down
    Now I'm on a roll
    And I swear to my soul
    Tonight I'm gonna paint this town.

    So bring me two pina coladas
    I want one for each hand
    Let's set sail with Captain Morgan
    And never leave dry land
    Troubles, I forgot 'em
    I buried them in the sand
    So bring me two pina coladas
    She said goodbye to her good timin man.
    Goodbye!

    Oh now I've gotta say
    That the wind and the waves
    And the moon winkin' down at me
    Eases my mind
    By leavin' behind
    The heartaches that love often brings
    Now I've got a smile
    That goes on for miles
    With no inclination to roam
    I've gotta say
    That I think I've gotta stay
    Cause this is feelin more and more like home

    So bring me two pina coladas
    I want one for each hand
    Let's set sail with Captain Morgan
    And never leave dry land
    Troubles, I forgot 'em
    I buried them in the sand
    So bring me two pina coladas
    She said goodbye to her good timin man.



    Cowboy Cadillac

    I've never known one better
    She's a real go getter
    If you met her you'd be good as gone.
    She's a real red liner
    Likes it all behind her
    She's the kind that keeps you hangin on.
    She's a cowboy's buddy
    Even when she gets muddy
    Lord, she's lovely from her front to back
    So either comin or going
    Know her best side's showin'
    She's my cowboy cadillac

    She's the perfect picture
    Of a perfect mixture
    "Tween a woman and a fine machine.
    She's a hard work lover
    A real tough mother
    She's the cover of a magazine
    And I'm happy knowin
    That what keeps me going
    Is what's gonna keep me comin back
    She's my honkin, tonkin
    Everything I'm wantin
    Cowboy cadillac.

    She loves to haul them cattle
    All my ropes and saddle
    And it doesn't matter work or play
    If it's a mountain she can crawl it
    If it's hay then she can haul it
    She's the last one to call it a day
    Every cowboy loves her
    Lord, they all dream of her
    Oh brother don't they all react
    At the end of the evening
    When they see me leaving
    With my cowboy cadillac.

    She's the perfect picture
    Of a perfect mixture
    "Tween a woman and a fine machine.
    She's a hard work lover
    A real tough mother
    She's the cover of a magazine
    And I'm happy knowin
    That what keeps me going
    Is what's gonna keep me comin back
    She's my honkin, tonkin
    Everything I'm wantin
    Cowboy cadillac.



    Fit For A King

    His pulpit's a corner on 19th and Main.
    His grip on the gospel his one claim to fame.
    He hurls fire and brimstone at the cars passing by
    And he offers salvation for the savior on high.
    His khakis are tattered and he ain't bathed in weeks.
    His bout with the bottle shows up on his cheeks.
    He looks like a scarecrow, a sight to behold
    As he works for the shepherd, bringing lambs to the fold.
    He points to the Bible he holds in his hands
    Says I'm proof that the good Lord can save any man.

    Son it ain't what you're driving or the clothes that you wear
    Material possessions won't matter up there.
    And someday in heaven when the angels all sing
    These rags that I'm wearing will be fit for a king.

    He's fighting a fever in spite of the chill.
    He pulls up his collar and he speaks of God's will.
    His body is weakened but his faith is still strong
    For he's filled with conviction for the mission he's on.
    He knows soon in heaven he'll be homeless no more
    As his work will soon echo from that far distant shore.

    Son it ain't what you're driving or the clothes that you wear
    Material possessions won't matter up there.
    And someday in heaven when the angels all sing
    These rags that I'm wearing will be fit for a king.

    Someday in heaven when the angels all sing
    These rags that I'm wearing will be fit for a king.



    Do What You Gotta Do

    Sometimes you gotta take the heat
    If you're gonna walk down on the mean street
    Take the heat and you see it through
    Cause sometimes it comes down to
    Do what you gotta do.

    Sometimes it goes right down to the wire
    And you might have to walk through the fire
    Walk on, boy, all the way through
    Sometimes it just comes down to
    Do what you gotta do.

    Well, there's people that'll tell you it's just no use
    And there's people that'll tell you that you're gonna lose
    People that'll tell you anything you're gonna listen to
    Do what you gotta do.

    Some day they're gonna call your name.
    They'll come looking for someone to blame
    What's your name boy?
    Hey you just tell them true
    Cause they can't take the truth from you
    So do what you gotta do.
    Well they'll call you a hero or a traitor
    But you'll find out that sooner or later
    Nobody in this world is gonna do it for you
    Do what you gotta do.
    There ain't nobody in this world
    That's gonna do it for you
    Do what you gotta do.



    You Move Me

    This is how it seems to me
    Life is only therapy
    Real expensive
    And no guarantee
    So I lie here on the couch
    With my heart hanging out
    Frozen solid with fear
    Like a rock in the ground.

    You move me
    You give me courage I didn't know I had
    You move me
    I can't go with you and stay where I am
    So you move me.

    This is how love was to me
    I could look and not see
    Going through the emotions
    Not knowin what they mean
    And it scared me so much
    That I just wouldn't budge
    I might have stayed there forever
    If not for your touch

    Oh but you move me
    Out of myself and into the fire
    You move me
    Now I'm burning with love and with hope and desire
    How you move me.

    You go whistling in the dark
    Making light of it
    Making light of it
    And I follow with my heart
    Laughing all the way

    Cause you move me
    You get me dancing and you make me sing
    You move me
    Now I'm taking delight in every little thing
    You move me.



    In Another's Eyes

    In Another's Eyes
    I'm someone who
    Loves her enough
    To walk away from you
    I'd never cheat
    And I would never lie
    In another's eyes

    In anothers' eyes
    I could do no wrong
    And he believes in me
    And his faith is strong
    I'd never fall
    Or even compromise
    In another's eyes

    In another's eyes
    I'm afraid that I can't see
    This picture perfect portrait
    That they paint of me
    They don't realize
    And I pray that they never do
    'Cause everytime I look
    I'm seein' you
    In another's eyes

    In another's eyes
    Starin' back at me
    Tryin' desperately
    To turn the tide
    Before it dies
    In another's eyes
    And what they don't see
    Is killing me
    It's a blessing and a curse
    That love is blind
    'Cause in another's eyes
    I'm afraid that I can't see
    This picture perfect portrait
    That they paint of me
    They don't realize
    And I pray to god they never do
    'Cause every time I look
    I'm seein' you
    In another's eyes



    When There's No One Around

    This is a song that nobody knows
    I couldn't begin to describe how it goes
    But it makes me cry or laugh right out loud
    It's a song that I sing when there's no one around.
    This is the man that nobody sees
    He wears my old clothes and he looks just like me
    Just one of the boys who gets lost in the crowd.
    He's the man that I am when there's no one around.

    Its four in the morning
    I'm lyin' in bed
    A tape of my failures playin inside my head
    It's heartaches and hard knocks
    And things I don't know
    I listen and wonder
    Where will it go

    This is a glimpse of the child that's within
    He' so immature but he's my best friend.
    If he could learn how to fly he'd never touch down
    He's the kid that I am when there's no one around.
    This is the dance I do every day
    I let my feet get carried away
    I let my soul lead and follow the sound
    It's the dance that I dance when there's no one around.

    Its four in the morning
    I'm lyin' in bed
    A tape of my failures playin inside my head
    It's heartaches and hard knocks
    And things I don't know
    I listen and wonder
    Where will it go

    This is a song that nobody knows
    I couldn't begin to describe how it goes
    But it makes me cry or laugh right out loud
    It's a song that I sing when there's no one around.
    It's a song that I sing when there's no one around.



    A Friend To Me

    Well you and I
    We're buddies
    And we've been since we've first met
    Me and you
    Well we've sure been through
    Our share of laughter and regret

    Lord knows we've had our bad days
    And more than once we've disagreed
    But you've always been a friend to me

    You can be so stubborn
    There's times I think that you just like to fight
    And I hope and pray
    I live to see a day
    When you say I might be right

    And there's times I'd rather kill you
    Than listen to your honesty
    But you've always been a friend to me

    You've always been
    Time and again
    The one to take my hand
    And show me it's okay to be
    Just the way I am
    With no apology

    Oh you've always been
    And you will 'til God knows when
    Yes you've always been a friend to me



    Take The Keys To My Heart

    I've been out on this highway of heartache
    Hopin' that somewhere down the line
    I could find somebody who
    Could rev me like you do
    So grab on to my wheel
    And I'll be fine


    Take the keys to my heart
    And drive me crazy
    I've been runnin' on empty way to long
    Honey you got the touch
    That heat's my motor up
    Take the keys to my heart
    And drive it home

    I don't know where this road is gonna lead us
    But what a beautiful night for a drive
    Baby put your mind at ease
    Drop the top and feel the breeze
    Just follow all the signs to paradise


    Take the keys to my heart
    And drive me crazy
    I've been runnin' on empty way to long
    All that work under the hood
    Sure has got it runnin' good
    Take the keys to my heart
    And drive it home

    Tonight we're gonna set these wheels on fire
    And find out just how far this thing will go
    Honey we don't need no map
    'Cause where we are is where it's at
    Take the keys to my heart
    And drive it home


    Baby make my motor yearn
    I long to feel that rubber burn
    Take the keys to my heart
    And drive it home
    Drive it home



    Belleau Wood

    Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence
    Over Belleau Wood that night
    For a Christmas truce had been declared
    By both sides of the fight
    As we lay there in our trenches
    The silence broke in two
    By a German soldier singing
    A song that we all knew

    Though I did not know the language
    The song was "Silent Night"
    Then I heard my buddy whisper,
    "All is calm and all is bright"
    Then the fear and doubt surrounded me
    'Cause I'd die if I was wrong
    But I stood up in my trench and began to sing along

    Then across the frozen battlefield
    Another's voice joined in
    Until one by one each man became
    A singer of the hymm

    Then I thought that I was dreaming
    For right there in my sight
    Stood the German soldier
    'Neath the falling flakes of white
    And raised his hand and smiled at me
    As if he seemed to say
    Here's hoping we both live
    To see us find a better way

    Then the devil's clock struck midnight
    And the skies lit up again
    And the battlefield where heaven stood
    Was blown to hell again

    But for just one fleeting moment
    The answer seemed so clear
    Heaven's not beyond the clouds
    It's just beyond the fear

    No, heaven's not beyond the clouds
    It's for us to find it here
