Lyrics

lyin' here staring at you
up to me I'd never leave
time wasted until now
love set me free

if I had to do it over again
I'd leave it just the way it was
price I'd pay for a love like this
babe I couldn't pay enough

love don't you go, don't you go
don't you go
I love you so

I love you so
more than you know
I love you so

if I had to do it over again
I'd leave it just the way it was
price I'd pay for a love like this
babe I couldn't pay enough
Track Name: Betcha Didn't Know

LYRICS

been a month full of mondays
lordy me
what's a girl gotta do
to get herself free

i really don't think
it oughta be this hard
queen a' hearts
in a house of cards

took a likin' to you
when I's just a girl
the biggest thing
in my little world

i really don't think
it oughta be this hard
queen a' hearts
in your house of cards

if you were to take
your love away
my little heart'd break
and i'd a-fade away

oooh i wanna love you
oooh i wanna love
listen up baby
to what i say
stays the same
gonna be a change

my little girl
on my lap
i said lookee here hon
doncha take no crap

boy comes along
mess wit' your heart
need to decide
wanna play that part

really don't think
it oughta be that hard
don't build your life
in a house of cards

oooh i wanna love you
oooh i wanna love
listen up baby
to what i say
you better get ready
i'm coming your way

betcha you didn't know what i's gonna do
pack my things and walked away from you


betcha you didn't know what i's gonna do
Track Name: Sweet

LYRICS

hey baby...

well it's sweet, like honey
just like honeysuckle grows on the vine
and I'm free, free baby
ain't got nothin left of you on my mind

woke up this morning and I wanted to say
look here baby, it's a beautiful day

for so long, I've waited
like a flower awaits the day
and I love, so freely
noone can ever take that away

woke up this morning and I wanted to say
look here baby, it's a beautiful day

not afraid of growin old
it's a part of the play
but if the truth is bein told
I was running away

runnin from a place
that I don't understand
I ain't runnin no more
'cause I'm taking a stand

took a hard cold sober look
and saw into the light
when the moon looked back at me
at the end of the night

it's another day, just another day

it's a beautiful day...

well it's sweet, like honey
just like honeysuckle grows on the vine
well I'm free, free baby
ain't got nothin left of you on my mind
Track Name: Savor
___________________________
LYRICS

I guess I wanna thank you
for doin' me a favor
cause this newfound freedom
is a taste I'm gonna savor

and I believe
and I can breathe

I guess I wanna thank you
for doin' me a favor

startin to see you oughta believe
in the little things that set you free
finally makin time for me again
at the end of the day I gotta say
everything's gonna be OK
maybe I'll see you down the road, my friend

and I believe
that I can breathe

I guess I wanna thank you
for doin' me a favor

you poor thing, thought you had it down
but the little boys they just fool around
I will leave this wreckage gracefully
do what you like, and like what you do
I'm doin it all without you
maybe I'll see you down the road, my friend
baby I'll see you down the road, my friend
maybe <down> I'll see <ooh> you on down the road....

beeda liddit bowm...
Track Name: Margarite

LYRICS

young heart is just too small
to understand the coming fall
leaves feather to the ground
she sits and cries to the sound

of the blight-man's footsteps
coming fast
patiently waiting
summers past

Margarite, oh Margarite
dry your cryin eyes
the leaves no longer crumble
'neath your feet
summer's heart beats
and fall's dies

she grows older, every year
little does she know
that there's more to fear

seasons come and seasons go
her head is heavy and
it hangs low

such a burden on her heart
it goes to fall, she falls apart
her face is pale and she takes a breath
who do you mourn for, is it
your own death

Margarite, oh Margarite
dry your cryin eyes
the leaves no longer crumble
'neath your feet
summer's heart beats
and fall's dies

oo-oo-woo-hoo

young heart is just too small
to understand the coming fall
leaves feather to the ground
she sits and cries to the sound
