Lyrics to Emerson Drive

 
FALL INTO ME
(Danny Orton, Jeremy Stover)
 
Right here waiting, staying strong
Come and fall into me
 
You say you've turned it off
Hid your heart upon a shelf
Scared of what it might cost
To take it down for someone else
Cuz loving him you lost
Too much of yourself
Baby, can't you see
That he's not me
And..
 
Chorus:
I need you to know you can fall into me
That my arms are wide open
And will always be
Right here waiting
Staying strong
Come and fall into me
 
I'll follow any road
Anywhere to get to you
I'l open up my soul
If that's what you need me to do
But now baby, it's your move
All you've got to do
Is believe in love, just believe in us
And...
 
Chorus
 
Just believe in love
Just believe in us
Baby
 
Chorus
 
Come and fall into me
Baby fall into me
 
EVIDENCE
(Vicky McGehee, Trent Tomlinson, Bobby Pinson)
 
Lipstick impressions on my white collar shirt
Number on a matchbook, so I'll get ahold of her
Oh, oh, oh, that's all the proof I need
I can smell her perfume on my passenger seat
A strand of long blond hair
That don't belong to me
Oh, oh, oh, it's not a dream
 
Chorus:
I can't believe
It's really happening
My eyes can see, Yeah
It's not an illusion
I didn't imagine this
I've got the evidence
 
Let me tell ya now
 
My machine is blinkin'
From a message she left
Her voice sounds so sweet
I can't erase it yet
Oh, oh, oh, I probably never will
I bought a picture for five dollars
That she talked me into
I was head over heels
Cramped up in a booth
Oh, oh, oh I've got it on film
 
Chorus
 
Yeah, I got the evidence
 
Chorus
 
Yeah, I've got the evidence
I've got the evidence
 
PASSIONATE DESPERATE LOVE
(Brett Beavers, Tom Douglas)
 
You oughta be a little more careful baby
You know I'm dangerous
With my wild imagination
You'd better stop right now
Yeah, you better, ohh, it's too late
That pink cotton candy
Sound of your voice
Completely destroys me
I've got no choice
 
Chorus:
Yeah, I'm coming apart at the seams
Feeling you pulling my strings
Waking me up with  a dream
That's so real
With passionate, desperate
Passionate, desperate
Passionate, desperate love
 
You're holding me
Closer than a whisper baby
Secretly I love the way you drive me crazy
Wanna feel, gotta feel
Your hands, cooling my skin
I'm caught in the flames of my desire
You pour on your kisses
They feed the fire
 
Chorus
 
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Yeah, Yeah , Yeah
 
I know I'm making a scene
But don't wake me up from this dream
I finally know what it means to feel
 
Chorus
 
ONLY GOD(Could Stop Me Loving You)
(R.J. Lange)
 
We saw the moon in Colorado
We made music in Tennessee
We found the gold of El Dorado
It's so good, making love, you and me
These arms, they will never hold another
This heart, it will always feel like this
 
Chorus:
Only God could stop me loving you
Only God could tell me not to
He sent you from Heaven
Just to make my dreams come true
When He opened the door
That you came walking through
Only God could stop me loving you
 
Now we struck oil in Oklahoma
And won the Oscar in Hollywood
And climbed the canyons of Arizona
And baby, making love never felt so good
These lips, no other girl will ever kiss
This heart, it will always feel like this
 
Chorus
 
There ain't no girl in the whole wide world
Who could take away my heart
And there ain't no man
Who could steal your hand
And tear us apart
But there is one God in Heaven above
Who gave me love
Strong enough to calm my heart
 
Only God could stop me loving you
Only God could tell me no to
Only God could stop me from loving you
Only God could tell me not to
Only God could stop me from loving you
 
SAY MY NAME
(Chris Hartman, Bobby Pinson, Trent Tomlinson)
 
You read Grisham novels
I'd rather watch a movie
Baby, were like night and day
You like frappacino, Leonardo DiCaprio
I like Al Pacino and I take my coffee straight
It's no secret, girl, we're different
It's not like we don't know
Every single hesitation
All goes out the window
 
Chorus:
When you say my name
I can feel forever
When you touch my face
Girl I feel invicnible
Nothing seems impossible
I'm Superman
You've got me flying high
Baby, say my name just one more time
 
You like hip hop dancin'
I'd rather wait for something slow
It's a little less work for two left feet
You wear Italian leather
My polyester suits me fine
It's inevitable
We're gonna disagree
 
It's no secret, girl, we're different
It's not like we don't know
Every single hesitation
All goes out the window
 
Repeat chorus twice
 
When you say my name
When you say my name
When you say my name
 
I SHOULD BE SLEEPING
(Lisa Drew, Shaye Smith)
 
I never knew there were such great movies
On TV at 3 AM
I'd never guesses that at midnight Tuesday
I could have pizza ordered in
I've never been a real night owl
But these days, I'm all turned 'round
There's only one thing I'm sure of right now
 
Chorus:
I should be sleepin'
'Stead of keepin'
These late hours I've been keepin'
I've been pacin' and retracin'
Every step of every move
And even tho I'm feeling so right
I'm so happy, still I know
I should be sleepin'
"Stead of dreamin' about you
 
I never knew that I was funny
Til I went and made you laugh
Never liked a girl to call me Honey
But you did and I liked that
I keep thinkin' about your smile
Tryin' to read between the lines
Looks like I'll be up for awhile
 
Chorus
 
After just three dates
And one great kiss
It's way too soon
To be obsessing like this
 
Chorus
 
I should be sleepin'
Dreaming about you
 
LIGHT OF DAY
(Trent Tomlinson, Bobby Pinson, Kris Bergnes)
 
I can't believe you're here with me
Inside this dream come true
I'm so  gone
So far lost
In your arms, in you
Here we are again
Between the darkness and the light
Hoping that this moment
Could be frozen in time
 
Chorus:
I don't want this night to slip away
I just wanna lie in your embrace
Never see the sun come up
Stay lost in your love
I wanna feel you brush against my skin
I don't want this feeling to end
Wanna see the moon dance on your face
I could lie here forever
And never see the light of day
 
Dawn is closing in
Stars surrendering
I'm still giving in to you
As the light arrives
Peeking through the blinds
All that's on my mind is you
I'll have to start the day
Like all my other days begin
Waiting on the moment
When I can say again
 
Repeat chorus twice
 
Never see the light of day
I wanna get lost in you
I wanna stay lost in you
 
 
LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER
(John Bettis, Neil Thrasher, Michael Dulaney)
 
I feel her hair slappin' my face
It makes me smile
She slides her arms around my waist
Tighter every mile
Her lips are against my ear
I grab the clutch and find a higher gear
 
Chorus:
She said, don't look back
I've gotcha covered
Forget the past
We've got each other
And as I left the life before her far behind
She pulled a little closer
Looking over my shoulder
 
I check the mirror and catch her eye
She blows me a kiss
A round photograph reflecting
Just how right this is
I shouted, I'm the king of the world
And I'll be yours forever girl
 
Chorus
 
Over my shoulder
Over and over
 
Chorus
 
She said don't look back
I've gotcha covered
Looking over my shoulder
 
I SEE HEAVEN
(Jeff Loberg, Noah Gorden, Kris Bergsnes)
 
I've waited all night for this moment
To watch the day kiss the darkness goodbye
And I barely remember falling asleep
But the minute I open my eyes
Every dream comes true
When I look at you
 
Chorus:
I see Heaven
I seen an angel
Lying here next to me
Bring out the best in me
Hearts entangled, wrapped in forever
This close together
Me holding you
You holding me
You opened my eyes
Baby I see Heaven
 
I reach up to open the window
Let the cool air dance it's way through
The sun in the sky is so blindingly bright
But it doesn't compare to you
Girl, I'm lost in time
As I watch you shine
 
Repeat Chorus twice
 
I've waited all night for this moment
 
HOW LUCKY I AM
Chris Lindsey, Bob Regan)
 
Some days blue skies are endless
Sometimes rain falls like tears
Every day that you're with me
Is a day I'm glad to be here
 
There are high roads, low roads and choices
Reasons to doubt and believe
But, I'll be okay
As long as you're right here with me
 
Chorus:
When the new day falls on my window
Soft as the touch of your hand
And your light fills my heart
And warms my soul
And I know how lucky I am
 
Some days my prayers are answered
Sometimes the answer is no
You smile at me
It's more than my heart can hold
 
Repeat chorus twice
 
When the new day falls on  my window
And the stars rise together and dance
And your light fills my heart and warms my soul
I know how lucky I am
 
(Marcus Hummon)
 
The morning after
What have I done
What did I promise
Did I say love
I can't believe it's come to this
All on account of one goodnight kiss
She must have learned how at the movies
Only fiction could move me like this
 
Chorus:
She was Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts
She was Madonna, I wouldn't stop if I could
She was Brigitte Bardot, she was Sophia Loren
She was Jean Harlow, it was a Hollywood kiss
 
Celine was singing in the background
Oooh, she had the lighting down just right
She said something like "Take me you fool"
And the cameras moved in tight
I had a vision of the future
Our wedding day the preacher says
"Lift the veil and go ahead"
 
She was Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow
She was little Miss Love Hewitt
I never had a chance
She was Marilyn Monroe
Wind blowing in the white dress
She was Mae West
Pretty miss was a Hollywood kiss
 
She was Marilyn Monroe
Wind blowing in the white dress
She was Mae West
It was a Hollywood kiss

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
 
It was a Hollywood kiss
 
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

It was a Hollywood kiss
Kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss
 
IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
(Jeffrey Steele, Reed Neilson)
Come here baby
I told you when I met you
I'd do anything it took to get ya
Bet you never thought I'd ever take it this far
I work two jobs, but that's alright
Made up my mind
To dedicate my whole life to your life
Baby, you're a superstar

Chorus:
It's all about you
Everything that I do
It's all about you
My mission in life
My purpose on Earth
To make sure you get
All the love you deserve
It's all about you
 
I buy a dozen roses
Box of chocolates
Get you tickets to the opera, Pavorotti
And the monster truck show
I'll take you on a Caribbean cruise
Buy you a hundred pairs of new shoes
Dress you up in diamonds, pearls and all that stuff
 
Chorus
 
Do what you gotta do
Don't worry about me
As long as I got you
That's all I need
 
Ain't no one, no where, no how, no way, no man gonna work harder for you any day, Baby
Everyday
 
Chorus
 
It's all about you

Two songs off of the album used to be different.  Here are the original lyrics.
 
ONLY GOD(Could Stop Me Loving You)
 
We saw the moon in Colorado
We made music in Tennessee
We found the gold of El Dorado
It's so good, making love, you and me
These arms, they will never hold another
These eyes, they are blind to any other
These lips, no other girl will ever kiss
This heart, it will always feel like this cause
 
Chorus:
Only God could stop me loving you
Only God could tell me not to
He sent you from Heaven
Just to make my dreams come true
When He opened the door
That you came walking through
Only God could stop me loving you
 
We struck oil in Oklahoma
We won the Oscar in Hollywood
We climbed the canyons of Arizona
And baby, making love never felt so good
These arms, they will never hold another
These lips, no other girl will ever kiss
This heart, it will always feel like this cause
 
Chorus
 
There ain't no girl in the whole wide world
Who could take away my heart
And there ain't no man
Who could steal your hand
And tear us apart
But there is one God
In Heaven above
Who gave me love
Strong enough to calm my heart
 
Only God could stop me loving you
Only God could tell me not to
Only God could stop me from loving you
Only God could tell me not to
 
SAY MY NAME
 
You read Grisham novels
I'd rather watch a movie
Baby, we're like night and day
You like frappacino, Leonardo DiCaprio
I like Al Pacino and I take my coffee straight

It's no secret, girl, we're different
It's not like we don't know
Every single hesitation
All goes out the window
 
Chorus:
When you say my name
I can feel forever
When you touch my face
Girl, I feel invincible
Nothing seems impossible
I'm Superman
You've got me flying high
Baby, say my name just one more time
 
You love Lenny Kravitz
I gotta have Alanis
Isn't it ironic
You and me
You wear Italian leather
My polyester suits me fine
It's inevitable
We're gonna disagree
 
It's no secret, girl, we're different
It's not like, we don't know
Every single hesitation
All goes out the window
 
Repeat chorus twice
 
When you say my name
When you say my name
When you say my name
 

Lyrics to Until You Walk The Tracks
 

TONIGHT SHE JUST WANTS TO DANCE
 
She's had 40 long hours worth of underpaid and overworked
Yes Sir, and right away M'aam
She's been goin' to bed at 9 o'clock
Wakin' up and gettin caught in the same ole traffic jam
Now it's finally Friday night
She's got her Justins and her jeans on tight
There's only one thing on her mind
 
Chorus:
Tonight she just wants to dance
Tonight she don't need no honky-tonk romance
She's out to feel good
Tear up the hardwood
She just wants to dance
 
There's parkin' lot Romeos
Crankin' up their stereos
Yellin' come and sit in my cab
She just smiles and walks by
Through the door and inside
She ain't havin' none of that
She fights her way through the crowd
Up to where it's good and loud
And she let's out a rebel shout
 
OWWW
 
Chorus
 
She's in line, the joint's rockin'
Everybody hollers more, more, more
Feelin' fine there's no stoppin'
Well, she's gettin' what she came here for
 
She's out to feel good
Tear up the hardwood
She justs wants to dance
 
Tonight she just wants to dance
Kick up her heels to a honky-tonk band
She's out to feel good
Tear up the hardwood
She just wants to dance
 
Chorus
 
SOME TRAINS NEVER COME
 
Billy had an eye for the girl
She had her eye on him
They made a vow they'd stay together
Be it sink or swim
Through the autumn, through the winter
You'd never see them apart
Then BIlly left for a summer job
That girl she broke his heart
 
Chorus:
Don't you know that you might have a ticket
Oh and you just might be right on time
But if fate ain't willing love have mercy cause
Some trains never come
Some trains they never come
 
Sally found her Mr. Right
Wrapped in a three piece suit
That night he offered to drive her home
After drinks after two
He never bothered to mention a word
About the wife and kids
In fact, he'll never bother to call her at all
Ain't that the way it is
 
Chorus
 
You'll meet some people who swear it's coming
Some say it's already passed
I say you'll never find it at all
Until you walk the tracks
 
It goes to shows you that you might have a ticket
Oh, you just might be right on time
But if fate ain't willing
Love have mercy cause
Some trains never come
Some trains they never come
 
Don't you know you can't see where you're going
If you can't remember where you've been
Cause now love will leave you waiting
Crying at the staion
Some trains never come
Some trains they never come
 
HEAVEN IS WHEREVER YOU ARE
 
The search has been on through the ages
Searching for the promised land
Poets have filled up the pages
Preachers have taken their stand
So many hearts that were lost in the dark
'Til I saw the light in your eyes
When I'm with you there's no doubt
That I found paradise
 
Chorus:
Heaven is wherever you are
It's not a faraway place
It's a state of the heart
So I look to the stars
But I don't have to go that far
Heaven is wherever you are
 
I lay by your side in the moonlight
And wonder how a man could be so blessed
An angel like you holding me tight
You've chosen me above all the rest
You've shown me the path to a love everlasting
The answer to all my prayers
Everybody's dying to find it and we're already there
 
Repeat chorus two times
 
So I look to the stars
But I don't have to go that far
Heaven is wherever you are
 
LOVE'S A TRIP
 
This is crazy
I've been swept away
It's amazing
I'm walking around in a daze
It hit me from the blindside
But I could see that it was right
Looks like I'm in it for the ride of my life
 
Chorus:
Love's a trip
It's a one way ticket
To a destination that's unknown
Take a chance and go for it all
Cuz love's a trip when you fall
Love's a trip when you fall
 
She's perfection
An angel in my eyes
Keeps me guessing
Every turn is a surprise
With the body of a woman and the spirit of a child
Everything about her drives me wild
Yes it does

Chorus two times
 
Love's a trip
Oh, love's a trip
 
EASY STREET
 
You're late again boy
 
I showed up at the office in my workboots, jeans and t-shirt
Boss said that's a good way to lose a job
You shoulda seen the look on his face
When I emptied out my briefcase
I said I think I'll take the rest of my life off
I've got a brand new Beamer that I'm tradin' up
For a run down, puddle jumpin' pick-um up truck
It's got a camper shell and a rifle rack
I've been to the top now I'm goin back to Easy Street
 
Chorus:
Well the road to success leads back to the woods
Down to the creek where the fishing is good
Made in the shade ain't fine Chablis
It's sipping lemonade under an old oak tree
You don't worry about the cost of living getting too high
When you've got everything that money can't buy
The best things in life are free down on Easy Street
 
Now when  I  buy stock
I go to the local farmers' market
It's a heavy trading at the auction barn
I can get more motivation from old timer's conversations
Than I ever got from a corporate seminar
Now I call living high on the hog
Pork chops, green beans, and corn on the cob
Swap my suite on Fifth Avenue
For a forty acre farm with a country view
On Easy Street
 
Chorus:
You don't worry about the cost of living getting too high
When you've got everything that money can't buy
The best things in life are free down on Easy Street
If you're looking for me, I'll be down on Easy Street
 
I got your job right here
 
SEASON OF GOODBYE
 
No turniing back
That time has come
What used to be
Just you and me
Has come undone
Yes I know can't tell me why
There's no room for reason
Through the season of goodbye
 
Chorus:
When the sky turns black
And the rain comes down
And you wonder if you'll see the light from solid ground
When the final truth becomes a lie
How does a heart survive
The season of goodbye
 
The perfect plan
The dream come true
Oh the best laid plans go wrong
But for the chosen few
Can't tell you why
But it must be so
Every prayer gets answered
But sometimes the answer's no
 
What you needed most
When you started out
Has finally become
What you must do without
When a flame of hope flickers and dies
How does a heart survive
The season of goodbye
 
I feel my heart just screaming
Each pounding beat is seeming
Like it's gonna be the last
Memories come flooding from the past
Seasons of another time
Somehow that's not far behind
For the season of goodbye
 
When the final truth
Becomes a lie
How does a heart survive
The season of goodbye
 
HARD LABOR OF LOVE
 
I used to want my freedom more than anything at all
I thought love was just another ball and chain
Captured by her tenderness, glad I took the fall
In your loving arms I shall remain
 
Chorus:
I'm looking for a  lifetime of the hard labor of love
It's gonna be so fine with the one I'm dreaming of
I'm ready to tow that line
I've been running long enough
I'm ready for a lifetime of
The hard labor of love
 
My friends all think I'm crazy for turning myself in
But I don't really care what people say
Maximum security's the best it's ever been
So lock me up and throw the key away
 
Repeat Chorus twice
 
BLIND FAITH
 
Sometimes a change is good for the soul
You gotta looik inside your heart to find what you need to know
With my head held high, I'm gonna take that first step
Wherever it leads, there'll be no regrets
 
Chorus:
I'm at a crossroad and I don't know where to go
I'm scared, uneasy, afraid to follow
I feel the wind, hair on my face
I close my eyes, take a breath and roll with the change
Inch at a time every step feels like a mile
I walk the tightrope of blind faith
 
I feel like a runaway train on a one way track
The destination unknown and there's no turning back
One foot forward, I'll find my way
The strength that I found will carry me through each day
 
Chorus
 
I feel the wind, hair on my face
I close my eyes, take a breath and roll with the change
Inch at a time, every step feels like a mile
I walk the tightrope
I walk the tightrope of blind faith
With blind faith
 
I JUST WANNA HAVE YOU
 
Well I got a bad reputation
For staying out all night long
Partyin' with my good time friends
'Til all my money's gone
There's been a lot of ladies
Tryin' to settle me down
Oh, but it's all in vain
"Til you came along with a love so strong
And now I'm ready for the ball and chain
 
Chorus:
I'll give up smokin', drinkin', fishin'. gamblin',
Huntin', boatin', fightin', ramblin'
Baby just to be with you
But it ain't no sacrifice
Cause you're the only vice
Honey, I'm addicted to
My friends all say
My funning days are through
But I don't wanna have fun
I jsut wanna have you
 
So take me out of circulation
Put me under lock and key
Cause if you don't save me from myself
I'm gonna be the death of me
All my bar room buddies think I've lost my mind
Cause I don't come around anymore
Well, it may be so, but
They don't know what goes on behind closed doors
 
Chorus
 
I'll give up my remote control
And we can watch some old movie
Instead of the Super Bowl
 
Chorus
 
I don't wanna have fun
I just wanna have you
 
PEACE COUNTRY BOYS
 
One hot Alberta day
We loaded up our Chevrolet
A flat of Bud and a fishing pole by my side
Hey don't let forget
There was Virgil, Dan and Brad
Pat told his girl he wouldn't be home for nights
 
Chorus:
These are the days we will remember all our lives
Those times of freedom when we left the world behind
And the only woman that we'll let up here
Is Mother Nature if she brings some beer
Big city life left far behind
And under the open sky is where we'll be tonight
Finding peace with the good Peace Country Boys
 
Never take nothin' that you don't need
Like my daddy said, son you gotta live your dream
And try to keep your intentions of the purest kind
Tell our girls no hanky pankin' goin'  on
Just some fishin' and pickin' to a country song
So come on boys, let's go for a ride
 
Chorus
 
And the only woman that we'll let up here
Is Mother Nature if she brings some beer
Crazy city life left far behind
And under the open sky is where we'll be tonight
Finding peace with the good Peace Country Boys
 
Yeah, finding peace with the Good Peace Country Boys
 
Let's go fishing boys
 
 
 
 
 

Left off of the original, and sorely missed:
 
STONE ANGEL
 
She stopped counting
The times her hearts been broken
Too many promises and too many tears
Yeah, each time somebody hurt her
She fell a little bit further
Heaven left her stranded here
 
Chorus:
She's a stone angel
Her wings are just too heavy to fly
She's a stone angel
It's not that there's no love left inside
She's just heard one too many good-byes
 
Her dreams unguarded
She was such and easy target
For every joker with a smoking gun
Yeah Yeah
For every lie they told her
She turned a little bit colder
Now she don't trust anyone
 
She's a stone angel
Her wings are just too heavy to fly
She's a stone angel
There's still alot of love left inside
She's just heard one too many good-byes
 
Repeat
 
She's....
She's a stone angel
A stone angel
 
C'MON LET'S EXPERIENCE
 
You gotta pay attention in this life
Opportunities could slip right by
You gotta take a chance
Or you'll never know
Sometimes you gotta stop to see
Which way to go
 
Once upon a time could be today
We could be in love
It's hard to say
Maybe we should stop to reasses
Maybe I should ask instead of guess
Are you ever talking about me
When you tell me all your fantasies
Do you really think of someone else
It sounds like me, but it's hard to tell
 
Chorus:
Woah oh oh oh, c'mon let's experience
Yeah all of the love we feel tonight
C'mon baby, don't keep me waiting
Yeah grab on the reigns and join the ride
Life is too short to sit on the fence
So c'mon let's experience
 
Lately when we try to say goodnight
Feels like we never get it right
Every little touch
We still want more
Don't think it was that way before
 
Even tho, you say we're only friends
Everybody asks again and again
Even tho we don't
Maybe we should
Together they all say we look so good
 
Chorus
 
Yeah
 C'mon let's experience
Woah oh oh oh
