You talk about tomorrow, About raising the stakes You think about your sorrow About all those past heart breaks You talk about the feeling Of her skin against yours You say you want the healing Of a love that roars You talk about a story Where all live in the end But you needn't worry brother, You can grab my hand Alone is not the way I'm right here by your side No you're not alone today, I'm along for the ride Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Can't you feel the love around us Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Can't you feel the love rise from the dust You talk about revival About how your soul was saved You wait for her arrival You say she's got what you crave You say one night in her bed Will bring you to the edge You want your life colored in red A way out of your cage You're ready to jump right off that cliff You don't have wings but hey, you'll do as if

I walked into the bar She said you're looking good so far And do you wanna be my man tonight I said I don't know who you are But baby jump into my car And we'll figure out how to make this feel all right Her hands were on my old guitar Said baby I'll make you star Just promise you'll never leave my sight She lit up my big cigar I took a swig from her mason jar Proceeded to fly high as a kite G D A And we loved all night Till we couldn't stand up right Yeah we loved all night G A Love all night When my front door was left ajar I knew she'd left me with a scar A broken heart and a song to write I wished on the first morning star Heard the whine of the steel guitar And let the words on the paper take flight Bm G D A X2 G A G D A Cause we loved all night Till we couldn't stand up right Yeah we loved all night G A Love all night
3.
G She said come with me tonight C Let's see if love can take flight D Before tomorrow comes around We could live life far away Let's drop anchor in the bay Never again wear a frown C As the sun sets on the island G She's in my arms to stay D And we sat down on the sand C G And waited for the brand new day Life has been so good since then That I can't remember when A smile could not be found We do not have much, it's true oh but we have me and you And that's why love sticks around
4.
G C Well there's a world on the other side of this mountain G I know one day I'll walk the windy trail Before I go drink from the heavenly fountain I pray my sense of adventure will prevail Sometimes I stay up late at night and dream of a voyage To a world I heard about but I've never seen The day will come when I will be of health and age And I'll go roaming all over this world of green And the old man he tells me Stories and tales Bout being young and free And all the fun that entails And I wanna be a vagabond with the world as my front yard I wanna see the ruins of Babylon And give Ireland my regard My mother tells me to find me a nice girl To settle down and start a family But all I wanna do is travel round the world LIke Fogg did right before 1873 So I've been saving all my money and my dreams Of places far away and lands of marvel I've got maps for every continent it seems I'm finally ready to start my travel And the old man he tells me Stories and tales Bout being young and free And all the fun that entails After thirty years on the road I found my way home I'm sitting on the front porch of my grandpa's house There are many roads less traveled left to roam But I never did find me a good spouse
5.
G You say my love is sweet A7 That you can't wait to meet C G And I'm all right with that You say your love is strong Strong as the day is long And I'm grateful for that Em A7 C But we gotta wait at least another day G Oh man there's no way Em A7 C I want you here with me, as close as you can be Oh close enough that we Can dance to the same beat When love turns up the heat We'll love warm and sweet We'll make up some new moves Who cares who disapproves Oh baby, we're in the groove Babe tell me where you are And I'll jump in my car If you're OK with that I wanna love you strong Strong as the day is long
6.
Sold the house and bought a boat Left behind my winter coat Nothing but you and the sea Nothing but knowing we are free We can sail until we like the view Until the water's deep and blue We'll read stories bout a world of love As we gaze at the stars above The wind will take us where it may Across the world or across the bay We'll take the time to live again Sure is nice meeting you again, my friend We'll try an island for a day Maybe we'll go maybe we'll stay There's no plan, no rendez vous Feel free to just be you And if we feel the time is right I'll hold you in my arms so tight We'll say the words that make us one We'll say the words then we'll be gone

Standing here on the sand Thinking 'bout holding your hand Seeing times in my mind Before love was ours to find And I know in my heart That what sets us apart Is the love that we share Like there ain't a minute to spare And we live and we laugh and we love And we talk of forever And we sing and we dance And we know we'll grow old together And we smile and we stay close and strong for each other And we thank God above that we found one another Sitting here on a chair Our heads bent, lost in prayer And our words as one sound Pick us up right off the ground And we know clear as day That our love's here to stay Take my hand right in yours Let's see what life has in store And we live and we laugh and we love And we talk of forever And we sing and we dance And we know we'll grow old together And we smile and we stay close and strong for each other And we thank God above that we found one another Let the storm come to our front door Know that I'll only love you more And we live and we laugh and we love And we talk of forever And we sing and we dance And we know we'll grow old together And we smile and we stay close and strong for each other And we thank God above that we found one another

She's worth 04:05
They've been together For a couple of weeks Feels like forever Whenever she speaks He said I'll never find another like her God willing, that's what we 'd all prefer Man she's worth leaving the country overnight She's worth running til she's outta sight She's worth speeding through any red light She's worth leaving it all behind She's worth turning deaf and blind She's worth paying any fine Just to get her out of your mind They've been apart for a couple of weeks It breaks his heart, that his mind still seeks The feel of that joy of that original thrill Oh how he wishes he were holding her, still Man she's worth leaving the country overnight She's worth running til she's outta sight She's worth speeding through any red light She's worth leaving it all behind She's worth turning deaf and blind She's worth paying any fine Just to get her out of your mind

You say you'd be happy if you had a new car You say you'd be happy if you could live far With more money in your pocket You'd take off like a rocket You say you'd be happy with just a couple of more things You say you'd be happy if you could live like kings One great big shopping haul Your life wouldn't feel so small But things don't give you the happy So stop looking for the next sugar daddy Find your happy, you left it somewhere At the bottom of your heart, did you look there? You say you'd be happy with a house from a magazine You say you'd be happy with a big movie screen You need more things to show your worth Buying new stuff is like a second birth You say you'd be happy with a room just for your shoes You say you'd be happy with more stuff than you can use You wanna buy a boat just to talk about the sea But if you don't use your freedom are you really free?

You're still alive cause I can't afford a hit man And I don't have the money, but I have the plan You better watch your back If I win at the track You know an itchy finger Will pull that trigger You're still alive cause the law says I can't take you out And I don't have a way to stay beyond a reasonable doubt A shower at the jail Not a good place for my tail You know an itchy finger Would pull that trigger It's a pity, it's a shame But I loathe you all the same I hope I'll be around When they put you in the ground You're still alive cause the time and the place aren't right And I don't have the perfect line of sight I'm seeking higher ground With nobody around You know my itchy finger Will pull that trigger It's a pity, it's a shame But I loathe you all the same I hope I'll be around When they put you in the ground I know you think this is wrong But they can't all be love songs.
