Crime Scene

Written By: Amy Bonner

I called the police and I told them I would like to report a crime
He said, "Ma'am can you tell me what happened, and around about what time?"

I think I caught him off guard when I said,
"Sir, this crime hasn't happened yet...

But now, this time he ain't getting off easy
He's out living it up with some sleazy
little short skirt, what a big flirt
And he thinks that I don't know

But I won't sit around anymore waiting
Holding up my end of the vows that he's breaking
This time I'm gonna show him what I mean
This here home is the sight of a future crime scene"

That old police man sat in silence on the other end of the line
Then he finally said, "Ma'am if you do this, you're gonna be convicted of a premeditated crime"

And I asked, "How's that different from what he does to me?
Cause he lies and plans and schemes before he cheats

And now, this time he ain't getting off easy
He's out living it up with some sleazy
little short skirt, what a big flirt
And he thinks that I don't know

But I won't sit around anymore waiting
Holding up my end of the vows that he's breaking
This time I'm gonna show him what I mean
This here home is the sight of a future crime scene

I got to thinking, what if I'm wrong?
How could I do this to the man I love?
So I decided to go and see
And what I saw was my husband out and looking
way to friendly with Ms. Mini, Ms. Mini skirt
What a big, bad flirt

And now, this time he ain't getting off easy
He's out living it up with some sleazy
little short skirt, what a big flirt
And he thinks that I don't know

But I won't sit around anymore waiting
Holding up my end of the vows that he's breaking
This time I'm gonna show him what I mean
This here home is the sight of a future,
Well now we've got no future,
This is the sight of a future crime scene

I Still Remember

Written By: Amy Bonner

Like a whisper I still hear you
Those words just keep resounding
With the image of your tears
It echoes through the years

There was a time that I remember
That's now long been forgotten
Of a happy peaceful place
I used to see it in your face

And I still try to find you
in anything I see or in anywhere I go
And how I want to reach you,
You've drifted far away from every memory we've made
But I still remember
I still remember you

The chance that you'll forgive me
Doesn't seem too likely
Still I wonder how you are
And if you think of me at all

And if I could say just one thing
I'd tell you that I love you
That will never ever change
No matter who's to blame

And I still try to find you
In anything I see or in anywhere I go
And how I want to reach you
You've drifted far away from every memory we've made
But I still remember
I still remember you

The Further We Go

Written By: Amy Bonner

There's a reason life hands you these battles
You gotta get tough and weather the storm
Cause if you listen, you can hear Him
And then you'll realize you're never alone

I can't tell you the world is with you
Cause it's a fight wherever you go
But there are some things you've got to believe in
Have a little faith cause you already know

It's so easy to lose your focus
Trying to find your way back home
But keep walking that straight and narrow
Cause it gets better the further we go

I can't tell you the world is with you
Cause it's a fight wherever you go
But there are some things you've got to believe in
Have a little faith cause you already know

It's so easy to lose your focus
Trying to find your way back home
But keep walking that straight and narrow
Cause it gets better the further we go

I can't tell you, no the world ain't with you
It's a fight wherever you go
But there are some things you've got to believe in
Have a little faith cause you already know

It's so easy to lose your focus
Trying to find your way back home
But keep walking that straight and narrow
Cause it gets better the further we go
The further we go
The further we go

Ford Girl

Written By: Amy Bonner

Met him at the bar, he was looking so fine
Offered me a drink, took it as a good sign
Listened to the band playing a little George Strait
Dancing real close, I could feel my heart race

It was getting late, people going home
He offered me a ride and I just couldn't say no
He said, "I'll get my truck, meet me outside,"
I was looking forward to a good ride

Until he pulled up to the front door
I could feel my heart sink
Looking for that old blue emblem on the tailgate
But it had a bowtie and what would that say about who I am?
Cause I'm a Ford girl, and he's a Chevy man

He opened up the door expecting me to jump in
I looked into his eyes and I was half tempted
But he saw me pause, asked me, "Darling, what's wrong?"
I just couldn't lie, knew I had to be strong

Told him, "I was wrong, this could never work out,"
He tried to change my mind, but I knew there was no doubt
It's like a wolverine trying to court a buckeye
There are things in life that just ain't right

Like when he pulled up to the front door
I could feel my heart sink
Looking for that old blue emblem on the tailgate
But it had a bowtie and what would that say about who I am?
Cause I'm a Ford girl, and he's a Chevy man

Guess he liked my style
He gave up the fight
He said, "Honey, next time you drive"

And so I pulled up to his front door
In my F150
Riding with that old blue emblem on the tailgate
Ready for a good time
Showed him just how that baby ran
Cause I'm a Ford girl
I'm a Ford girl
And no Ford girl falls for a Chevy man
yeah, don't fall for a Chevy man

Heaven Sent

Written By: Amy Bonner

Friday never came for me it up and passed me by
I guess the road I took didn't have a long ride
And maybe some would say,"If I knew back then what I know here today
I would change things if I could", but I wouldn't

Cause there's a picture of our wedding day
In my bible where I stopped to pray
When I got the news that life was closing in

And though I stood there in my room in tears
I knew I'd been blessed with too many good years
To be crying for the time I wouldn't get
I knew every day I had was heaven sent

Fifty years of memories went flashing through my mind
From the day we met to the day we had our first child
And I still can't believe just how much our boys have your silly stubborn pride
But I'll sit back and watch them change just like you did

Cause through the baseball and the football games
And their rowdy adolescent ways
I would never ever want to change a thing

And though they're grown up now and on their own
I still look at them and see those little boys
With the smiles that I never will forget
Every day I had with them was heaven sent

I was never very good at saying my goodbyes
So I'll just have to write them down this one last time
So keep this letter that I have left for you if you ever need to know
Just how happy my life was, you can look back

Look for the picture of our wedding day
In my bible where I stopped to pray
When I got the news that life was closing in
And though I stood there in my room in tears
I knew I'd been blessed with too many good years
To be crying for the time I wouldn't get
I knew every day I had was heaven sent
Every day I had with you was heaven sent

Friday never came for me it up and passed me by
I guess the road I took didn't have a long ride

Burn To The Ground

Written By: Amy Bonner

There was a time we were happy
At least that's what I like to believe
There was a day in December
When you promised your love just to me

But now we're getting caught in vicious circles that are never ending
When I keep trying to tell you what kind of message that you're sending

Lately all you do is curse and complain
Your words cut so deep they just drive me away
But when you told me I wasn't worth having around
You might as well just took a match to our home
and watched it burn down to the ground

I could cry but it ain't worth it
No tear can erase what's been said
Cause right now nothing can save us
You'd have better luck trying to raise the dead

Cause lately all you do is curse and complain
Your words cut so deep they just drive me away
But when you told me I wasn't worth having around
You might as well just took a match to our home
and watched it burn down to the ground

Cause there's no reason left to fight for something that you don't believe in
It's a useless battle when you've already been defeated

Lately all you do is curse and complain
Your words cut so deep they just drive me away
But when you told me I wasn't worth having around
You might as well just took a match to our home
And watched it burn down, well and watched it burn down,
watched it burn down to the ground

We Haven't Spoken In A While

Written By: Amy Bonner

We haven't spoken in a while
I guess it's been about a year or so
And how the time flies by
Since that night I chose to let you go

When I begged you for your help
I kept praying that I'd hear from you
Looks like you didn't try to hard
To help me face what I was going through

I thought that I could count on you
To stand beside me and pull me through
We used to be the best of friends
I thought you'd be there to the very end

But when my world was turning upside down
I never saw you come around
I'd like to trust you but I don't know how
We haven't spoken in a while

My friends keep telling me you care
Say you've asked them how I am
They tell me to open up my heart
So I can heal and let you in again

But I'm not ready to forgive
You left me stranded when I needed you
Now it's hard for me to live
And trust someone I only thought I knew

I thought that I could count on you
To stand beside me and pull me through
We used to be the best of friends
I thought you'd be there to the very end

But when my world was turning upside down
I never saw you come around
I'd love to trust you but I don't know how
We haven't spoken in a while

It must be hard to be the first one everybody blames
But I felt the truth in my heart
When I knelt down at the altar to pray
And I said, "God...

We haven't spoken in a while
I guess it's been about a year or so
And how the time flies by
Since that night I chose to let you know

Anymore

Written By: Amy Bonner

Empty bottles, broken dreams
Both sitting right here in front of me
Now our future's in the past
Was it ever really meant to last?

All our pictures underneath the bed
And all those memories in the back of my head
For every tear I ever cried, goodbye, goodbye

I can't see you anymore
I can't feel you anymore
I can't hurt you anymore
You can't hurt me anymore

I can't love you anymore
I can't love you any less anymore

Old love letter, found it just the other day
It's funny how you put those words on that page
Oh, I wish I would've lost it, conveniently misplaced
Or erased

It finally happened, you're finally gone
No more missing you and no more hanging on
No more pain, no more being strong, so long,
Yeah, no more being strong

I can't see you anymore
I can't feel you anymore
I can't hurt you anymore
You can't hurt me anymore

I can't love you anymore
I can't love you any less anymore
Anymore

Good Morning Sunday

Written By: Amy Bonner

Good morning Sunday haven't seen you in a while
I've been caught up in Saturday night
Cause the devil gets in when the drinking begins
Good morning Sunday good to see you again

I've been searching for water in a well that runs dry
I've been looking for daylight in the night
But you won't find salvation in a room full of lies
Good morning Sunday haven't seen you in a while

My soul is weary from this road I've been on
Caught in a battle between right and wrong
But it's not worth the cost of all that I've lost
Good morning Sunday, how you saved me again

I've been searching for water in a well that runs dry
I've been looking for daylight in the night
But you won't find salvation in a room full of lies
Good morning Sunday haven't seen you in a while

I've been searching for water in a well that runs dry
I've been looking for daylight in the night
But you won't find salvation in a room full of lies
Good morning Sunday haven't seen you in a while

When the Rubber Meets the Road

Written By: Amy Bonner

I've been rolling down this highway steady between the lines
I never took the exit even though I saw the signs
Now this road has got a hold on me no matter where it winds
There goes the city limit sign
Out of this town of mine

I've never believed in rear view mirrors
Or spinning my wheels on wasted years
These windshield wipers are covered in tears I'm moving fast
And never look back

When the rubber meets the road and my foot is on the gas
White knuckles grip that steering wheel and my heart is beating fast
I let the windows down as I roll on out of town
When he sees those marks I've left behind he'll know
This time I'm gone, I'm moving on
When the rubber meets the road

My baby brother lives in Tennessee I can make it there by morning
He said he'd always have a place for me in that town that I was born in
Low on gas I just hit "e", I'd say that that's fair warning I'm too far gone, gonna keep on pushing on

A hundred miles ago I probably would've answered
But if that phone starts ringing now I'll just drive a little faster
Cause looking back it's plain to see it never really mattered Oh, it's too late, that's why I'm flying down the interstate

When the rubber meets the road and my foot is on the gas
White knuckles grip that steering wheel and my heart is beating fast
I let the windows down as I roll on out of town
When he sees those marks I've left behind he'll know
This time I'm gone, I'm moving on
When the rubber meets the road

When the rubber meets the road and my foot is on the gas
White knuckles grip that steering wheel and my heart is beating fast
I let the windows down as I roll on out of town
When he sees those marks I've left behind he'll know
This time I'm gone, I'm moving on
When the rubber meets the road

That Man

Written By: Amy Bonner

It's a shame that you tried so hard
It's a shame that you cried so hard for that man
That man

It's a shame that the tears and the rain
Were the only things that ever came from that man
That man

Cause the storm clouds seemed to follow him wherever he would go
And the baggage that he carried weighed twice as much as most for that man

He ain't right and it ain't your fault
Gotta let him go but Lord knows you won't
Fighting fire with fire will only leave you damned
And it ain't strong enough to save that man

It's a shame that he would not change
No matter how hard you prayed for that man
That man

Cause the devil sure knows him well
He's got a plan in the pit of hell for that man
That man

Every day he turns a little further from the light
He's been a victim of a painful past
Life was such an uphill fight for that man

He ain't right and it ain't your fault
Gotta let him go but Lord knows you won't
Fighting fire with fire will only leave you damned
And it ain't strong enough to save that man

It's a shame that the devil got in
Now he knows how much you'll sin for that man
That man

Now he's got his sights set on you
All because of everything you'd do for that man
That man

Your faith has gotten weak and his hold is getting strong
You'll never know how much you lost from trying to hold on
To that man

He ain't right and it ain't your fault
Gotta let him go but Lord knows you won't
Fighting fire with fire will only leave you damned
And it ain't strong enough to save that man
