THE BEST OF REBA MCENTIRE






You Lift Me Up To Heaven (Jim Zerface, Bob Morrison, Johnny Macrae)

Been to Colorado where the mountains touch the sky And I've done other things in life to lift my spirits high But nothing that I've ever tried to do Has taken me as high as loving you Chorus: Cause you lift me up, up, up, up to heaven When you gently lay me down You lift me up, up, up, up to heaven Yes you make my world go round I never try to get away on daydreams anymore Love's taken me to places that I've never been before But if it's not heaven when you're holding me It's the way that heaven oughta be Repeat Chorus And we never leave the ground Up, up, up, up to heaven Yes you make my world go round

There Ain't No Future In This

Honey I know you tried When you loved me tonight But the memory slipped from your lips So if she's on your mind That much of the time There ain't no future in this There was somebody who Took a whole lot of you And I guess you're not over it yet If I'm just Standing in for a memory then There ain't no future in this Cause mine are the arms that hold you Hers are the arms you miss So if she's still the one When it's all said and done There ain't no future in this So if she's still the one When it's all said and done There ain't no future in this

I Don't Think Love Ought To Be That Way (Layng Martine Jr., Richard Mainegra)

Oh, I'm feeling so fine and you're looking so good And I'd like to get together Oh Lord, I wish we could But there's someone at home Who's depending on me And boy they'd never know it If I set my passions free Chorus: But I don't think love ought to be that way No I don't think love ought to be that way I could tell him a lie And I know I'd get by But I don't think love ought to be that way You say a precious moment Is all that it would be That I'd forget about you And you'd forget me Oh I love what you're saying It's tempting me so And though I love to hear it There's no way that I'll let go Repeat Chorus No (Repeat Chorus x3)

Only You (And You Alone)(Buck Ram, Ande Rand)

Only you Can make this world seem bright Only you Can make the darkness bright Only you and you alone Can thrill me like you do And fill my heart with love For only you Only you Can make this change in me For it's true You are my destiny When you hold my hand I understand The magic that you do You're my dream come true My one and only you Oh, oh, only you Can make this change in me For it's true You are my destiny When you hold my hand I understand The magic that you do You're my dream come true My one and only you

I'm Not That Lonely Yet(Bill Rice, Mary Sharon Rice)

I don't mind to give you a slow dance or two I'm sorry I'm not at my best I know you can see I'm incredibly blue But I'm not that lonely yet I look in your eyes while you're dancing with me And try to fulfill your request But don't ask for favors when it's time to leave Cause I'm not that lonely yet Now don't say you want me I've heard that before The words weigh like stones in my head There may come a time when I'll think of you more But I'm not that lonely yet It's nice to be dancing To waltzes again And maybe it helps to forget You've opened the door but I'm not waltzing in Cause I'm not that lonely yet No I'm not that lonely yet

Can't Even Get The Blues No More

I walk into the kitchen The silverware is gone The furniture is missing I guess you got it all uhuh This is where it ought to hurt Seems like every time you leave me You try to think of something worse Chorus: I can't even get the blues no more I try to worry like I did before And nothing happens when I walk the floor So what am I supposed to do I toss and turn but then I fall asleep I'm going under but it's not too deep You want to hurt me but it's just no use I can't even get the blues Well this time ain't no different The sun's up in the sky Sitting on the back porch Clouds are rolling by Oh this is where it ought to rain But it doesn't really matter To me it's all about the same Repeat Chorus (You try and hurt me) Repeat Chorus

Today All Over Again(Bobby Harden, Lola Jean Dillon)

Chorus: Is this how it is when it's over Between a woman and a man Must tomorrow just keep on being Today all over again You made it look so easy Falling for somebody new But I must be going about it all wrong For I just can't stop loving you Repeat Chorus This morning I reached out to touch you A habit I've held for so long But I just started hurting all over again Like I have ever since you've been gone Repeat Chorus Today all over again

Why Do We Want What We Know We Can't Have(Don King, David Woodward)

Some come for the music Some for romance You gotta be with the boy that brought you to the dance Then across the room comes a casual glance And you be making some dime even half the chance Now some like to look And some like to touch All the things that they can't have Way too much Some like to get real close to the flame once you feel the heat You know they're never the same Why do we want What we know we can't have Why don't we want What's in the palm of our hands Why we always looking At what's just out of our grasp Why do we want What we know we can't have Well Susie was out driving her new corvette She hadn't made that second payment yet She rear ended a Semi But not by choice She was a rubbernecking a new Rolls Royce Repeat Chorus x2

My Turn (Len Chera, Jay Huguely)

Turn out the light Turn yourself over to me Turn off the world Turn my feelings free Just enjoy the pleasure For the pleasure pleases me You've been turning me on all night long Now it's my turn You have reached the woman in me Through the man in you Let me be that woman Before the lovin's through You just turn yourself over to me While I turn my feelings free You've been turning me on all night long Now it's my turn All night long I've been driven to your touch Haven't had time to give I've been taking so much I know you want to hold me But darling you've done enough You've been turning me on all night long Now it's my turn Repeat Verses #3 and #4 Repeat Verse #4

You're The First Time I've Thought About Leaving(Dickey Lee, Kerry Chater)

I've seen you smile more than I thought you would And I smiled back a little more than I should And lately at night while he's sound asleep I'm thinking things that I shouldn't think Chorus: You're the first time I've thought about leaving And I really don't know what I'll do You're the first time I've thought about leaving him I've never done known someone like you Sometimes I wait when I really should go Lord only knows what I do that for When I get home and he holds me close I try not to think what I'm thinking most Repeat Chorus I've never known someone like you
