  1. Leave the Pieces
    Lyrics

    You’re not sure that you love me
    But you’re not sure enough to let me go
    Baby it ain’t fair
    You know to just keep me hanging round
    You say you don’t wanna hurt me
    Don’t wanna see my tears
    So why are you still standing here
    Just watching me drown

    [Chorus]
    And it’s alright
    Yeah, I’ll be fine
    Don’t worry about this heart of mine
    Just take your love and hit the road
    There’s nothing you can do or say
    You’re gonna break my heart anyway
    So just leave the pieces when you go

    You can drag out the heartache
    Baby you could make it quick
    Really get it over with and just let me move on
    Don’t concern yourself with this mess you left for me
    I can clean it up you see
    Just as long as you’re gone

    [Chorus]

    You not making up your mind
    Is killin’ me
    And wasting time
    I need so much more than that

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah

    [Chorus]

    Leave the pieces when you go
    Leave the pieces when you go

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah-yeah
    Yeah

    Leave the pieces when you go

  2. Way Back Home
    Lyrics

    jh-sslp
    Way Back Home
    Stand Still, Look Pretty
    Way Back Home-:–
    Purchase
    Somewhere in the country
    There’s a place where nobody knows your name
    When I’m feeling lonely
    There’s a train
    That helps me run away

    I know my mother
    She always told me
    The road would get cold
    I never listened
    Always forgettin’
    The way back home
    The way back home

    Somewhere in the city
    There’s a face that makes it hard to stay
    He never listened to me
    When I’d say that things would never change

    I know my mother
    She always told me
    The road would get cold
    I never listened
    Always forgettin’
    The way back home
    The way back home
    The way back home

    I know my mother
    She always told me
    The road would get cold
    I never listened
    Always forgettin’
    The way back home

    I never listen
    Always forgettin’
    The way back home
    The way back home

  3. The Good Kind
    Lyrics

    “Do you want to run away together?”
    I would say it was your best line ever
    Too bad I fell for it
    And I walked alone
    Waiting for you to come along
    Take my tortured heart by the hand
    And write me off

    Do you know I cry
    Do you know I die
    Do you know I cry
    And it’s not the good kind

    Well it forced me to become strong
    When I just craved being weak
    And you think you know
    And I would like to think so
    But do you know that when you go
    I fall apart

    Do you know I cry
    Do you know I die
    Do you know I cry
    And it’s not the good kind
    No it’s not the good kind

    I’m tired of hiding
    Behind these lying eyes
    I’m tired of this smile
    That even I don’t recognize

    Do you know I cry
    Do you know I die
    Do you know I cry
    And it’s not the good kind

    Do you know I cry
    Do you know I die
    Do you know I cry
    And it’s not the good kind

    No you’re not the good kind
    Good kind
    No you’re not the good kind
    Good kind
    No you’re not the good kind

  4. Tennessee
    Lyrics

    jh-sslp
    Tennessee
    Stand Still, Look Pretty
    Tennessee-:–
    Purchase
    I never had all the answers
    I never had enough time
    But I sure had all the reasons
    Why you weren’t what I wanted to find

    I never laid all my cards out
    You just wanted to play
    The king, he waited on my doorsteps
    While the joker and me went on our way

    [Chorus]
    Maybe I was much too selfish
    But, baby, you’re still on my mind
    Now I’m grown and all alone
    And wishing I was with you tonight
    ‘Cause I can guarantee
    Things are sweeter in Tennessee

    These days everything is all business
    Never in one place for too long
    And there’s no lack of arms around me
    But I still wonder if somewhere I went wrong

    [Chorus]

    And I’d wish on every star in the
    Southern sky
    For that man and our life
    If I did not think that

    [Chorus]

  5. My, Oh My
    Lyrics

    This concrete road used to just be dirt
    We’d drive out here after work
    Every Friday night when I was eighteen

    This parking lot use to be a field
    I parked here in my Oldsmobile
    Long before the Sonic and the Walgreens

    Not no more
    Not no more

    [Chorus]
    My, oh my
    Look how the time flies
    Look how the world changes
    In the blink of an eye
    My, oh my
    Look how the years have flown
    Turn around before you know it
    Up and gone
    Oh my, oh my, oh my

    But times have changed and so have I
    I once was young and starry eyed
    Now I have these bittersweet memories

    Songs were long, and gas was cheap
    No cellphones, and water was free
    Daddy paid, and I never had to worry

    Not no more
    Not no more

    [Chorus]

    Oh my, oh my, my my my

    Not no more
    Not no more
    Not no more

    [Chorus]

    Oh my, oh my, oh my
    Oh my, oh my, oh my

  6. Stand Still, Look Pretty
    Lyrics

    I want to paint my face
    And pretend that I am someone else
    Sometimes I get so fed up
    I don’t even wanna look at myself

    But people have problems that are worse than mine
    I don’t want you to think I’m complaining all the time
    And I hate the way you look at me I have to say
    I wish I could start over

    [Chorus]
    I am slowly falling apart
    I wish you’d take a walk in my shoes for a start
    And you might think its easy being me
    You just stand still, look pretty

    Sometimes I find myself shaking in the middle of the night
    And then it hits me and I can’t even believe this is my life

    But people have problems that are worse than mine
    I don’t want you to think I’m complaining all the time
    And I wish that everyone would go and shut their mouth
    I’m not strong enough to deal with it

    [Chorus: x2]

  7. Cigarettes
    Lyrics

    Got my headlights shining
    Down an old dirt road
    Smoke my cigarettes
    I should quit, I know

    The radio’s playing
    Old country songs
    Someone’s leaving
    Someone’s cheating
    On and on

    I think I might like
    The quiet nights
    Of this empty life

    [Chorus]
    ‘Cause someday, maybe somebody
    Will love me like I need
    And someday I won’t have to prove
    ‘Cause somebody will see
    All my worth but until then
    I’ll do just fine on my own
    With my cigarettes
    And this old dirt road

    See I left another
    Good man tonight
    I wonder if he’ll miss me
    Lord knows I tried
    But I think that maybe
    The thing that I did wrong
    Is put up with his bullshit
    For far too long

    I think I might like
    The quiet nights
    Of this empty life

    [Chorus]

    I ain’t gonna sleep
    I don’t want to dream
    About the things that I used to be
    I ain’t gonna cry
    Don’t wanna live a lie
    I’m just gonna drive
    Oh, oh

    ‘Cause someday maybe somebody will love me
    And someday I won’t have to prove

    [Chorus]

  8. Hard to love you
    Lyrics

    Why do they make it hard to love you
    Why can’t they even start to try
    ‘Cause now I feel the bridge is burnin’
    Oh oh
    And all the smoke is in my eyes
    Oh oh

    I realize I never let them know me
    I always wanted to be right
    Took a mistake to really show me
    Oh oh
    Exactly what they were like

    [Chorus]
    I’ve been wrong but I’ve been changin’
    I’ve been wonderin’ what to do
    Here I am alone and waitin’
    For you

    Why do I try to make them happy
    Why am I always playin’ nice
    It isn’t easy tryin’ to tell you
    Oh oh
    Exactly whats on my mind

    [Chorus]

    I’ve been wrong but I’ve been waitin’
    For you

    I’ve been wrong but I’ve been changin’
    I’ve been wonderin’ what to do
    Here I am alone and waitin’
    Waitin’
    For you

  9. Lay Me Down
    Lyrics

    jh-sslp
    Lay Me Down
    Stand Still, Look Pretty
    Lay Me Down-:–
    Purchase
    You let me in
    ‘Cause after all
    It seemed like the right thing to do
    I closed my eyes
    And let you fall
    I wonder what you could possibly know
    About breaking down that I don’t

    It’s been awhile
    Since I begged for
    Anything but now I want more

    So lay me down
    I’m lonely
    You don’t understand me
    And you never even try to
    Anyway

    I hear you say
    It’s not the same
    I’m sorry
    It’s something I just can’t explain
    So shut your mouth
    And hold me close
    We both know
    It’s better than being alone

    I don’t mind
    Killing time
    As long as I can see it in your eyes

    So lay me down
    I’m lonely
    You don’t understand me
    And you never even try

    If wanting you’s so wrong then I’m wrong
    I’ll admit it
    Time after time you’ll realize
    You don’t mean it

    Lay me down
    I’m lonely
    You don’t understand me
    And you never even try

    I’m sorry
    Lay me down
    I’m lonely
    Lay me down

    You don’t understand me
    And you never even try to anyway

  10. One More Girl
    Lyrics

    I took off my iron smile, babe,
    ’cause I found it weighed me down
    Tomorrow when the world wakes up
    I’ll be in another town

    You don’t know what you want
    At this moment could be me
    You move your hand across my knee
    Turn me in to some novelty

    [Chorus]
    I guess I’m one more girl on a stage
    Just one more ass that got stuffed in some jeans
    And its one more day that you don’t find true love
    Because you don’t know what it means
    Yeah yeah

    Did you ever take the time to
    Think about who I might be
    Where I’ve been, what I’m thinkin’
    Who I love, what I’ve seen

    Yeah yeah, Yeah yeah, Yeah yeah
    Oh oh

    One more car out on the road there
    You might pass on your way home
    Someone’s sister, someone’s wife or
    Just some bitch who’s probably got no life

    Yes I’m

    [Chorus]

    One day we’ll be a pile of ashes
    For the rest of time it passes
    So take your hand off my knee
    Do you know what it means to be

    [Chorus]

    Yeah Yeah

  11. Rain
    Lyrics

    You’d never give up
    I can’t believe anything you say
    And it must be my luck
    ‘Cause no one else gets treated this way

    And I wanna know
    What goes on in that head of yours
    Yeah I wanna know
    ‘Cause I don’t think I can take much more

    [Chorus]
    Rain
    You must be sick or something
    I can’t take another day
    Rain
    is falling down
    will the sun come out again

    I never speak up
    I just tried to stay out of the way
    And I must have messed up
    ‘Cause that’s all that I hear you say

    And I wanna know
    What on earth makes you act like this
    Yeah I wanna know
    ‘Cause I don’t think I can take this shit

    [Chorus]

    sun come out
    sun come out

    [Chorus]

    Rain
    You must be sick or something
    Rain
    rain, rain, rain

    is falling down
    but will the sun come out again

  12. Crazy People
    Lyrics

    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me
    They come from all over
    To be with me
    Bank robbers and killers
    Drunks and drug dealers
    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me

    He came from Carolina
    On a west-bound freight train
    He didn’t have no ticket
    But he got here the same
    He left me a reminder
    With nine months to go
    That’s why I killed his wife
    And wrecked up his home

    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me
    They come from all over
    To be with me
    Bank robbers and killers
    Drunks and drug dealers
    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me

    He fled Mississippi
    With me at his side
    A trunk full of money
    And no place to hide
    Well he loved his whiskey
    And his fist loved my face
    So I buried that man
    No they won’t find a trace

    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me
    They come from all over
    To be with me
    Bank robbers and killers
    Drunks and drug dealers
    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me

    Only crazy people
    Fall in love with me
