Lyrics

Words

Written By: Nathan, Sawchuk

I keep tryin
to love you as best as i can
but you keep on pushin me away
and it takes everything i have sometimes
just to keep from walkin away

somehow all my fears fall away
i guess i'll stay and fight another day

I keep breakin down these walls
just to get to you
hoping you'll be there
on the other side
waiting by the phone
not knowin what to say
hoping that the words
don't get in the way

oh but i can't keep tryin
to love you to love you to love you
when you just keep running away
damn...
you're gonna have to make up your mind darlin
meet me half way

cus i wish all your tears would fall away
cus this heavy heart can't take the pain

chorus

Sugarcane

Written By: Chris Nathan, Rick Huckaby

Verse 1:
Well everyday I wake up
I feel the sun shining on my face
You begin to fill my cup
There's nothing like your warm embrace

Oh your love is real love
And not a drop is wasted
Oh your love is sweeter
Than anything i've tasted

Chorus:
Well i would dig a hole to hell
And fight the flames
If the devil shackled me
I'd break his chains to taste your
Sugarcane
Your sweeter than a summer rain
Cut through you like a windy day
Nothing is sweeter than your
Sugarcane

Verse 2:
Everybody knows it
They hate to see you go
but love to watch you walk away
I swear I must be dreamin'
How in the world did I get you girl

You show me something to believe in
I know it cause I feel it
I never think of leaving, no
You never give me a reason

Chorus

Solo

Chorus

Tell Me

Written By: Chris Nathan

Verse 1:
You low down, dirty, dirty
Girl you treat me
Like a hole in your pocket
Always playing with me

You're saying there's a light
At the end of the tunnel
I've been seeing nothing
But the writing on the wall

Chorus 1:
So tell me
Tell me
You're with another man
I said tell me
Baby tell me
I don't understand
What it takes to be your man

Verse 2:
I can't help but feeling wrong
You treat me like a dog
On the streets
Only giving me scraps

You say you'll bring me change
But I'm still short a dollar
From the last time you lied
Gone and made my heart broke

Chorus

Bridge:
Your love is like a trainwreck driving me down
I'm trying but I just keep losing ground

Chorus

Happy

Written By: Chris Nathan, Terry Sawchuck, Tom Douglas

Verse 1:
Moved into an apartment
Underneath some powerlines
Maybe that's the reason
We lost our minds
And maybe that's the reason

The rumble of a subway
Over our heads
The paint is cracked and peeling
It's probably filled with lead
And maybe that's the reason

Chorus:
That I'm standing on the edge
I can feel my heart
Pounding through my chest
Baby I'll be ok for another day
So I close my eyes
And try to hear the voice
Above the noise
That's telling me to be Happy
Oh to be Happy

Verse 2:
Standing outside your new house
I know you're inside but not alone
I left you messages
On your telephone
and maybe that's the reason

Chorus

Bridge:
Thought I'd turn this thing around
After you go
But no matter how hard I try
You're still on my mind

Chorus

Refrain:
So I close and I hear the voice telling me
Oh it keeps telling me
Now I'm on the edge and I hear my heart telling me
Oh it keeps telling me
To be Happy
