Lifetime Story

Written By: Kelly Bird, David A. Hanson

Tonight is just the start of it all
Now we can show them all how it’s done.
Tonight we’ll show how two can be as one.

Tonight we start building a future
We show our love for each other.
We’ll put in the time ‘cause the love is yours and mine.
And we’re gonna make it last.

We can make it last.
We can make it last.
We can make it last for a lifetime.

Tonight we prove we can stand up to time.
W’eve got what it take so to turn every corner
We’ll make it work out ‘cause it’s love without a doubt.

And Tonight we start our lifetime story.
An open book where there’s never and ending.
It’s just you and I: cover to cover.

And we’ll write the book the way it should be
The critics don’t matter ‘cause it’s just you and me.
Our theme will be a love that we won’t compromise
And I know when I look in your eyes

We can make it last.
We can make it last.
We can make it last for a lifetime.

Don't Say Goodbye, Girl

Written By: David A. Hanson

Don’t Say Goodbye, Girl

There so much I want to say to you
I don’t know where to begin
Where did we go wrong, girl?
Why does it have to end?
Maybe I didn’t love you enough
Ambition might have pulled me away.
Maybe I expected too much.
Maybe it’s better this way.

But whatever you do, just hear me out!
We can work this out.
Don’t say goodbye, girl
Just say goodnight.
Don’t say goodbye, girl
We can work it out in the morning.

Maybe we were meant for each other
Maybe we were meant to part
Why can’t we just say we’re sorry
And make a new start
Who’s at fault and who’s to blame?
Are things ever gonna be the same?
Is our love just a lonely candle without a flame?

But whatever you do, just hear me out!
We can work this out.
Don’t say goodbye, girl
Just say goodnight.
Don’t say goodbye, girl
We can work it out in the morning.

Everything To Me

Written By: David A. Hanson

Everything To Me

Whatever it takes to win your hear I’d do, yeah, yeah
Whatever it takes to share your love, I’d do, yeah yeah
Oh, baby, just say the word and I’m yours
‘Cause I just can’t live without your love.

I can’t hide my feelings like you do.
Give me a try don’t you worry about my pride
Meet me half way, don’t let someone else steal you away.
Don’t leave me with only a shadow of your heart.

‘Cause I just can’t live without your love.
I just can’t live without your love.
I just can’t live without your love.
You’re everything to me.

Girl, when you’re near you make my dreams come true.
Girl, I want to share all of my life with you.
I wake up feeling empty and I just want you beside me.
Girl, you know you’re everything to me.

I just can’t live without your love.
I just can’t live without your love.
I just can’t live without your love.
You’re everything to me.

Show Me

Written By: David A. Hanson

Show Me

I saw you from across the room, you touched me inside
The way you smiled, the way you spoke, the sparkle in your eye
You’re all that I’ve ever wanted, you’re all that I could ever need
When will you give me the key?

Show me the way to your heart.
Show me the way to your heart.

Living to the limit with only half of me
Never quite knowing where to find the rest
I’ve seen too many blank faces and I’ve felt too many empty hearts
But I’m looking for love from you

Looking for that someone who will make my life complete
You walked into my life and captured my heart
You’re all that I’ve ever wanted, you’re all that I could ever need
When will you give me the key?

Show me the way to your heart.
Show me the way to your heart.

When the lonely winter comes,
And the snow flies in my heart
Nothing can melt it but the love in your eyes

Show me the way to your heart.
Show me the way to your heart.

Answers

Limited access to your heart, there’s no commitment from you
Do you care that it’s up in the air?
Same lines, same time, every single day;
Can you tell me why from the start it’s been touch me and go?
Didn’t I say I love you? Didn’t you say you love me?

Answers, answers;
How can I reach you? I gotta reach you.
Answers, answers;
Tell me what I mean, Tell me what I mean to you.

Limited absence from your heart: that’s what I need!
Don’t you need me like I need you?
Empty pages, empty words, and useless actions;
Sail the ship before it runs aground!
Didn’t I say I love you? Didn’t you say you love me?

Answers, answers;
How can I reach you? I gotta reach you.
Answers, answers;
Tell me what I mean, Tell me what I mean to you.

You used to make me fly so high, now all that I can do is cry.
Oooh, I can see our love fading to black.
We shared the secrets and tears, the laughs the fears.
Now the moment has come to draw the line, cut and dry give me

Answers, answers;
How can I reach you? I gotta reach you.
Answers, answers;
Tell me what I mean, Tell me what I mean to you.

Tax Blues

Real Job

If I get a real job, I’m gonna get cable TV
If I get a real job, where people will appreciate me
When I get a real job, my bad luck’s gonna disappear
When I get a real job, it’s gonna be better than it is here

Loading up the flatcar with shiny new rent-a-cars
Maybe be a bodyguard to a guitar superstar
It’s gotta be better than this.

Putting on the mudguards of a turbo muscle car
Handing out the bankcards, stamping out the postcards
I know it’s better than this.

If I get a real job, I’m gonna get cable TV
If I get a real job, where people will appreciate me
When I get a real job, my bad luck’s gonna disappear
When I get a real job, it’s gonna be better than it is here

Taking tickets on the street car, driving kids to the school yards
Filling up the box car in a steel or lumber yard
It’s gotta be better than this.

Maybe train the saint bernards to dance around in leotards
Maybe teach a seminar on how to work your VCR
I know it’s better than this.

Planting in the courtyard, mowing in the backyard,
Shoveling in the barnyard, herding in the farmyard
It’s gonna be better than this.

Singing in the churchyard, digging in the graveyard
Maybe hold the door ajar, maybe work a crowbar
It know it’s better than this.

If I get a real job, I’m gonna get cable TV
If I get a real job, where people will appreciate me
When I get a real job, my bad luck’s gonna disappear
When I get a real job, it’s gonna be better than it is here

Attitude Adjustment

Written By: David A. Hanson

Attitude Adjustment

Fighting myself, fighting everyone;
There’s no relief, I can’t find any peace.
My eyes refuse to see, my ears to hear.
You can’t get through to me: I just don’t care.
Where am I going, just what do I want to do?
All of these questions, what’s it to you?
“You’ll never make it, your plans will not go through”
I know I’ll get there without any help from you.

I’ve spent ten nights alone. I’ve been buried alive.
I’ve been wandering around all night, but still I will survive.
Have you come to watch me stumble, trip and fall?
I will be standing up in spite of it all.
You say that I can’t get there from here
That’s real funny, I’ve been going this way for years.
What’s my problem? is there nothing between my ears?
Step aside, I’m switching gears. Yeah!

Walking Barefoot

Written By: David A. Hanson

I’m walking barefoot, through the breeze
Sing with the hummingbirds, up in the trees.
I see my baby, she’s standing by the door.
She says I can’t stay outside anymore. what a shame.

Walking barefoot, along the fence,
Checking the mailbox, what bills have they sent?
Seems I’m in limbo, no work today
Guess I’ll be walking barefoot all day.

Taking my baby out to dinner tonight
Can’t wear my shoes, cause they’re just too tight.

Walking barefoot, through the restaurant
There’s a special today, I can eat all I want.
Waiter, waiter, more beer, more wine.
Light another candle ‘cause we’re dining fine.

Don’t fight about the check, use Mr. Plastic
No need to worry, credit is elastic.

Walking barefoot, look at that moon
It’s kind of a share, the sun’ll be up soon.
Don’t be meloncholy, tomorrow is Sunday
That means I’ll be walking barefoot all day.

Walking barefoot, up a hill, down a hill.
Walking barefoot, the ultimate thrill.
Walking barefoot, walking with my baby.
Walking barefoot, really makes my day.

Walking barefoot, my toes in the sand.
Walking barefoot, got my guitar in my hand.
Walking barefoot, me and my baby
Walking barefoot, barefoot all day.
BAREFOOT!
