WIDE OPEN SPACES








I Can Love You Better (Kostas/Pamela Brown-Hayes)

Doo-n-doo Ooh-ooh-ooh Yeah-ee-yeah She's got you wrapped up in her satin and lace Tied around her little finger She's got you thinking you never can escape Don't you know your heart's in danger There's a devil in that angel face If you could only see the love that you're wasting. I can love you better than that I know how to make you forget her All I'm asking is for one little chance 'Cause baby, I can love you Baby, I can love you better I'm gonna break the spell she's got on you You're gonna wake up to find I'm your desire My intentions are true Hey babe, I know in time You're gonna see what you mean to me So open up your eyes cause seeing is believing I can love you better than that I know how to make you forget her All I'm asking is for one little chance 'Cause baby, I can love you Baby, I can love you better Oh-n-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh Yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah-eah Ooh-ooh, yeah I can love you better than that I know how to make you forget her All I'm asking is for one little chance 'Cause baby, I can love you I can love you better than that I know how to make you forget her All I'm asking is for one little chance 'Cause baby, I can love you Baby, I can love you I can love you better than that I can love you better I can love you better than that Baby, I can love you Baby, I can love you better

Wide Open Spaces (Susan Gibson)

Who doesn't know what I'm talking about Who's never left home who's never struck out To find a dream and a life of their own A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone Many precede and many will follow A young girl's dream no longer hollow It takes the shape of a place out West But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed She needs wide open spaces Room to make her big mistakes She needs new faces She knows the high stakes She traveled this road as a child Wide-eyed and grinning she never tired But now she won't be coming back with the rest If these are life's lessons, she'll take the test She needs wide open spaces Room to make her big mistakes She needs new faces She knows the high stakes As her folks drive away her dad yells, "Check the oil!" Mom stares out the window and says "I'm leaving my girl." She says, "It didn't seem like that long ago When she stood there and let her own folks know." She needs wide open spaces Room to make her big mistakes She needs new faces She knows the high stakes

Loving Arms (Tom Jans)

If you could see me now The one who said that she'd rather roam The one who said she'd rather be alone If you could only see me now If I could hold you now Just for a moment if I could Really make you mine Just for a while turn back the Hands of time If I could only hold you now I've been too long in the wind Too long in the rain Taking any comfort that I can Looking back and longing for the freedom from my chains Lying in your loving arms again If you could hear me now singing somewhere through The lonely nights Dreaming of the arms that held me tight If you could only hear me now I've been too long in the wind Too long in the rain Taking any comfort that I can Looking back and longing for the freedom from my chains Lying in your loving arms again I've been too long in the wind Too long in the rain Taking any comfort that I can Looking back and longing for the freedom from my chains Lying in your loving arms again I can almost feel your loving arms again

There's Your Trouble (Tia Sillers/Mark Selby)

Should have been different, but It wasn't different, was it Same old story Dear John and So long Should have fit like a glove Should have fit like a ring, Like a Diamond ring Token of True Love Should have all worked out but it didn't She should be here now but she isn't There's your trouble, there's your trouble You keep seeing double with the wrong one You can't see I love you You can't see she doesn't But you just keep holding on There's your trouble So now you're thinking 'bout All you're missing how Deep you're sinking Round and round dragging down Why don't you cash in your chips Why don't you call in a loss Not such a big loss Chalk it up better luck Could have been true love but it wasn't It should all add up but it doesn't There's your trouble, there's your trouble You keep seeing double with the wrong one You can't see I love you You can't see she doesn't But you just keep holding on There's your trouble Should of all worked out but it didn't She should be here now but she isn't There's your trouble, there's your trouble You keep seeing double with the wrong one You can't see I love you You can't see she doesn't But you just keep holding on There's your trouble There's your trouble There's your trouble There's your trouble There is your trouble

You Were Mine (Martie Seidel/Emily Erwin)

I can't find a reason to let go Even though you've found a new love And she's what your dreams are made of I can't find a reason to hang on What went wrong can be forgiven Without you it ain't worth livin' alone Sometimes I wake up crying at night And sometimes I scream your name What right does she have to take you away When for so long you were mine I took out all the pictures of Our wedding day It was a time of love and laughter Happy ever after But even those old pictures have Begun to fade Please tell me she's not real And that you're really coming home to stay Sometimes I wake up crying at night And sometimes I scream your name What right does she have to take you away When for so long you were mine I can give you two good reasons Show you love's not blind He's two and she's four and you know They adore you So how can I tell them you've changed Your mind Sometimes I wake up crying at night And sometimes I scream your name What right does she have to take you away When for so long you were mine I remember when you were mine

Never Say Die (George Ducas/Radney Foster)

Lyin' next to you in the dark I can feel your beating heart You've been here beside me through the test of time We've both had our share of doubts Waited out those ole storm clouds Boy it's nights like this that I know why Lovers like you and me will never say die 'Cause there's a long line of folks giving up on love So man hearts get broken in The push and shove I'll believe in you for the rest of my life Baby lover's like you and me will Never say die Tears of joy and tears of pain Tears say more than words explain There's no need for words here tonight We've both felt each others power A tender touch in the wee small hours Is strong enough to hold us for a lifetime Lovers like you and me will never say die 'Cause there's a long line of folks giving up on love So man hearts get broken in The push and shove I'll believe in you for the rest of my life Baby lover's like you and me will Never say die

Tonight The Heartache's On Me (Johnny MacRae/Bob Morrison/Mary W. Francis)

You could've heard a pin drop-when they Walked trough the door I had to turn my eyes away-my heart Fell to the floor Someone whispered, "Where's her halo?"- Cause she had an angel's face He stood there smiling holding on to the One who took my place So tonight the heartache's on me, on me Let's drink a toast to the fool who couldn't see Bartender, pour the wine 'cause the Hurtin's all mine Tonight the heartache's on me I wonder if he told her-she's the best He's ever known The way he told me ev'ry night when We were all alone She'll find out when the new wears off- He'll find somebody new She'll learn what the heartache's all about-and what I'm going through So tonight the heartache's on me, on me Let's drink a toast to the fool who couldn't see Bartender, pour the wine 'cause the Hurtin's all mine Tonight the heartache's on me So tonight the heartache's on me, on me Let's drink a toast to the fool who couldn't see Bartender, pour the wine 'cause the Hurtin's all mine Tonight the heartache's on me Yes tonight the heartache's on me

Let 'Er Rip (Billy Crain/Sandy Ramos)

I can tell there's something you Don't wanna tell me It's killing you cause the words Are hard to find I know you want to break it to me gently Well sweet baby say what's on your mind Let'er rip, Let it fly Come on baby say it, do you think I'm gonna cry I ain't about to ball, and I ain't gonna die So if you're gonna say goodbye Don't take all day and night Let'er rip, Let it fly Why the drama, we don't have to drag Out this situation It wasn't you, it wasn't me, sometimes The chemistry don't ignite There ain't no rings, no mortage, there ain't any complications It's just a hyphenated word, get it our I'm sure I'll be all right Let'er rip, Let it fly Come on baby say it, do you think I'm gonna cry I ain't about to ball, and I ain't gonna die So if you're gonna say goodbye Don't take all day and night Let'er rip, Let it fly It ain't no big deal, ain't no great loss You and I are on the same train of thought So you don't have to tell me where to get off Maybe I misunderstood you If you're leaving baby would you Let'er rip, Let it fly Come on baby say it, do you think I'm gonna cry I ain't about to ball, and I ain't gonna die So if you're gonna say goodbye Don't take all day and night Let'er rip, Let it fly So, if you're gonna say goodbye Don't take all day and night Let'er rip, let it fly

Once You've Loved Somebody (Thom McHugh/Bruce Miller)

I should go out tonight Get on with my life Break these chains of solitude With a little luck and a little help I might even find myself In the arms of someone new Once you've loved somebody It ain't that easy to do Once you've loved somebody Like I loved you Look what you've gone and done You've ruined everything for anyone Who tries to steal this heart away I can't get you off of my mind I've tried to tell myself a million times A little time is all it takes Once you've loved somebody It ain't that easy to do Once you've loved somebody Like I loved you I gave you everything that I had to give I don't know if I can go that far again Once you've loved somebody It ain't that easy to do Once you've loved somebody Like I loved you Once you've loved somebody It ain't that easy to do Once you've loved somebody Like I loved you

I'll Take Care Of You (John David Souther)

Times are hard and rents are high What can a working girl do But struggle through another day Then I'll take care of you Nights are long and dreams are cold If they're all you wake up to But should you rise with cryin' eyes I'll take care of you So let them talk about us Let them call us funny things People sometimes do I don't care as long As you know I love you Oh, and you know I do I'll be there but you might not see me It's never easy to get through But when the laughter dies away I'll take care of you Darling I'll take care of you

Am I The Only One (Who's Ever Felt This Way) (Maria McKee)

There is no good reason I should have to be so alone I'm smothered by this emptiness Lord, I wish I was made of stone Like a fool I lent my soul to love And it paid me back in change God help me, am I the only one Who's ever felt this way? A heart that's worn and weathered Would know better than to fight But I wore mine like a weapon Played out love like a crime And it wrung me out and strung me out And it hung years on my face God help me, am I the only Who's ever felt this way? Now my sense of humor needs a break I see a shadow in the mirror And she's laughin' through her tears One more smile's all I can fake There is a wound inside me And it's bleeding like a flood There are times when I see a light ahead Hope is not enough As another night surrounds me And it pounds me like a wave God help me, am I the only one Who's ever felt this way?

Give It Up Or Let Me Go (Bonnie Raitt)

Well I told you, pretty baby Such a long time ago If I found you with another Well, I'd walk right out your door Woh, you might call me crazy There's one thing you should know Well, if you want me to love you, Got to give it up or let me go I know it's useless to be jealous I couldn't tie you if I tried When I'm thinking you're messin' Around my back, It sure brings a pain I just can't hide Oh baby, I've been true to you And if I can make that sacrifice, Honey, you can do it too Well, you come home drunk and nasty You won't tell me where you've been Just when things are nice and sweet, Your going back out again Why do you want to mess up a good thing? I'm gonna find me another man, One that wants to give me everything Well I told you, pretty baby Such a long time ago If I found you with another Well, I'd walk right out the door Woh, you might call me crazy There's one thing you should know Well, if you want me to love you, Got to give it up or let me go And if I can make that sacrifice, Honey, you can do it too
