Lone Star State of Mind

Written By: BOBBY WATTS

Lone Star State of Mind

Vs1
Rockin’ to some Willie on a warm summer night
Dancin' with my honey holdin' her real tight
Resin up the bow and turn the lights down low
Play me a Strait tune nice and slow
Don't need no sign
Not hard to find
That Lone Star state of mind

Chorus
Take me straight to that Lone Star state of mind
No better place than that Lone Star state of mind
You don't need no sign
Never hard to find
That Lone Star state of mind

Vs2
You know it’s heaven for a Texan spend a night two-steppin'
And we jump in that line when it’s boot-scootin’ time
Can’t think of nothin’ better than a southern get-together
All night party with these outlaw friends of mine
Don't need no sign
Not hard to find
That Lone Star state of mind

Bridge
Shake off all my worries leave that job behind
No more need to hurry, no more daily grind
Let my hair down, kick back, take my own sweet time
Make my way back to that Lone Star state of mind

Sharing A Home But Not Our Hearts

Written By: Steven Clawson/Bobby Watts

Sharing A Home But Not Our Hearts

Verse 1

We’ve put up this wall between us
A silence that I can’t break through
I don’t know how it started
How we got so hard-hearted
All I know is how much I miss you

Refrain

I miss the laughter and the tears
The friendship shared so many years
Our quiet times…your hand in mine
The joy I felt when you were near
I just can’t tell you, girl, how much
I miss your smile your gentle touch
I can’t go on… living apart
Sharing a home but not our hearts

Verse 2

Can we tear down this wall between us
Please tell me what I need to do
Can't you see the tears falling
Can't you hear my heart calling
Can't you see I'm still in love with you

2nd Refrain

And I long for the laughter and the tears
The friendship shared so many years
Our quiet times…your hand in mine
The joy I felt when you were near
I just can’t tell you, girl, how much
I miss your smile your gentle touch
I can’t go on… living apart
Sharing a home but not our hearts

Bridge

I've learned that love untended fades away
But I never thought I’d live to see this day
How could we let it come to this
Never thought I could feel such emptiness

Repeat chorus w/ key change

First In and the Last to Leave

Written By: Bobby Watts/Cheryl Clawson

Dedicated to America’s everyday heroes—Sparky and all of our first responders and their bravery and dedication to our safety

1st verse
Did you see our friends and neighbors bravely lead the way
As we saw the twin towers fall that black September day
While others ran for shelter
Our heroes joined the fight
No time for fear—their mission clear
To save another life
They live their lives by a simple creed
Be the first in and the last to leave

2nd verse
Did you see our sons and daughters bravely heed the call
As Katrina’s mighty storm surge breached the levee walls
On the rooftops people clung in shock
As our heroes filled the skies
No time for fear—their mission clear
To save another life
They live their lives by a simple creed
Be the first in and the last to leave

Refrain
Did you know that heroes walk our streets
Young and old—every gender, race and creed
And when we face a desperate time
They always put it on the line
Not afraid of any fight
Ever ready to sacrifice
Living their lives by a simple creed
Be the first in and the last to leave

Bridge
With heads bowed we pay them homage
For the sacrifices made
We salute them for their courage
And the lives that they have saved

Your Love Is A Healing Place

Written By: Bobby Watts


Vs1
Remembering the call I made that cold and rainy day
A friendship lost I always thought would be there come what may
You said I’ll be right there, an answer to my prayers
And I felt my spirits raise
When I need a friend, when I need to mend
Your love is a healing place

Refrain
Your love (your love) is a healing place
Where I go to free my soul from the pain I can’t let go
Your love (your love) is a healing place
In your strong yet gentle arms I find shelter from life’s storms
Lost in your embrace I find amazing grace
Your love is a healing place
Your love is a healing place

Vs2
A letter from a dear friend’s mom bearing tragic news
He had lost his life in a desert fight
Left a wife and a child he never knew
Thank God you were there to quietly share
The grief I felt those days
When I need a friend, when I need to mend
Your love is a healing place

Repeat refrain

Bridge
Every time life leaves me hurtin’
When I feel like givin’ up
I know one thing for certain
I can count on is your love

Key change and repeat refrain
Your love (your love) is a healing place
Where I go to free my soul from the pain I can’t let go
Your love (your love) is a healing place
In your strong yet gentle arms I find shelter from life’s storms
Lost in your embrace I find amazing grace
Your love is a healing place
Your love is a healing place
………
Every time I lose my way I find your amazing grace
Your love is a healing place
Your love is a healing place

With These Roots

Written By: Bobby Watts/Steven Clawson


Vs1
When I’m in need of inspiration
I know just where to go
Find that old oak tree still standin’
Planted centuries ago
A reminder of my parent’s love
And the strength of family
That old tree recalls fond memories of
The roots they’ve given me

Chorus
And with these roots no storm can break me
I can rise and face each day
With these roots no wind can shake me
I stand tall and unafraid
With these roots I never face alone
Life’s sorrow and despair
With these roots I’m never far from home
And the love that I found there

Vs2
When I’m in need of consolation
Feelin’ lonely, feelin’ low
I find that old oak tree still standin’
Planted centuries ago
A reminder of my parent’s faith
And the comfort of family
Lifts my spirits as I pause to pray
These roots they’ve given me

Chorus
And with these roots no storm can break me
I can rise and face each day
With these roots no wind can shake me
I stand tall and unafraid
With these roots I never face alone
Life’s sorrow and despair
With these roots I’m never far from home
And the love that I found there

A Love That Sets Me Free

Written By: Bobby Watts

A Love That Sets Me Free
Verse 1

I’ve stood right at the edge where fear and freedom meet
Peered into the dark afraid to take the leap
Not knowing where I’d land…not knowing if I can
Just step out fearlessly

Chorus

But when I close my eyes and leap I fall into your arms
You give me all I ever need—safe haven from life’s storms
Knowing that you’re always near—such sweet security
Just on the other side of fear I find a love that sets me free

Verse 2

Waiting for a sign...searching for the light
Not seeing all the time the treasure here inside
All I have to do is fully trust in you
And your love will pierce the night

Chorus

But when I close my eyes and leap I fall into your arms
You give me I ever need—safe haven from life’s storms
Knowing that you’re always near—such sweet security
Just on the other side of fear I find a love that sets me free

Bridge

Standing at the edge
I face the mystery
As I empty myself you fill me
In surrender you set me free

Repeat chorus

Desert Place

Written By: Bobby Watts/Matthew Watts

(based on temptation of Jesus in the desert)

(Acapella intro solo--refrain)

Why have you brought me to this desert place
My eyes are burning and I can’t see your face
All my strength you’ve taken…left me here forsaken
Why have you brought me to this desert place

Vs1

What is the purpose
What is the point
Hear your people calling for a king to anoint

Where is my army
Where is my throne
Why have you left me, Father, here all alone

Refrain

Vs2

You left me hungry
You left me thirsty
Tired and alone and left to Satan’s mercy

Time’s come to pass the test
Give you my very best
And rise victorious from this wilderness

Refrain

Bridge

Burning…heart on fire
Burning….my one desire
Burning…lift me higher, Lord

Refrain

2nd Refrain

I’ll rise victorious from this wilderness
Calling on Your power I’ll pass Satan’s test
Resist temptation ….know God’s salvation
I’ll rise victorious from this wilderness

Christmas In Our Hearts

Written By: Bobby Watts

Vs1
We await in anticipation
The coming Yuletide celebration
Counting the days till that joyous season starts
And it defies explanation
Why we don’t use our imagination
And live each day with Christmas in our hearts

Refrain
The spirit of the season and all that it imparts
Is ours when we choose to live with Christmas in our hearts
The gift that keeps on giving
It’s magic never far
Each day that we spend living
With Christmas in our hearts

Vs2
It’s the Christmas choirs singing
The silver bells ringing
And the tale of a wondrous star
Leaves me believing
The reason for the season
Is to plan the seed of Christmas in our hearts

Repeat refrain

Bridge
So no matter what season of the year
We can find the Christmas spirit near
And it can play a special part
Brighten every day we start
When we keep Christmas in our hearts

Refrain
The spirit of the season and all that it imparts
Is ours when we choose to live with Christmas in our hearts
The gift that keeps on giving
It’s magic never far
Each day that we spend living
With Christmas in our hearts
