Lyrics

Is it Still Snowin' In Durango?

Written By: David Hosley

Verse:
From a dark and smoky barroom,
Just off the main road
He took one last sip of whiskey,
Before dialing the phone
It rang for quite a while,
And then her voice came on the line
And then he said the only words he could find,

Chorus:
Is it still snowin’ in Durango?
‘Cause it sure is raining here.
That was quite a storm we had
I was hoping it would clear.

I’ll always love you baby
And I want to make it right
But I need to know
Is it still Snowin’ in Durango tonight?

Verse:
She paused for just a moment
And wiped the tears from her eyes
And then she whispered “Thank you Lord,
For keeping him safe tonight.”
She picked up his picture,
From the nightstand by the bed
And as she looked at his smiling face she said,

Chorus:
Yes it’s been snowin’ in Durango
But the storm has almost past
Hard times always come along
But you know they never last

I’ll always love you baby
Long as there’s stars up in the sky
And thank the Lord
It just stopped snowin’ in Durango tonight

Bridge:

He said, “I’ll always love you baby and I’m on my way.”
And as he drove through the cold Colorado night
He could still hear her say,

Chorus:

Yes it’s been snowin’ in Durango
But the storm has almost past
Hard times always come along
But you know they never last

I’ll always love you baby
Long as there’s stars up in the sky
And thank the Lord
It just stopped snowin’ in Durango tonight

Only Pictures

Only Pictures
By Dave Hosley

Verse:
The movers called, they were on their way
I had boxes everywhere
I was headed to California
I could smell the ocean air

I’d cleaned out all the closets, thought I was finally done at last.
That’s when I saw that dusty box marked, “Photographs”

Pre-Chorus:
I got a funny feeling as I pulled it off the shelf
And as I opened it up and looked inside I had to tell myself

Chorus:
They’re only pictures
Just a boy and a girl
Young and hopeful
Ready to conquer the world

So full of life
Graduation night
Where did the years all go?
I told myself,
They’re only pictures of two kids I used to know.

Verse:
There we were, all dressed up
New Year’s in ‘93
Then spring break two years later
Laughin’ on the beach

Dancin’ to the music next to my old Chevy van
Cheerin’ at the football game with all our crazy friends

Pre-Chorus:
And then I came to the portraits of you all dressed in white
Well I threw that box across the room and I cried out in the night

Chorus:

They’re only pictures
Just two people I used to know
Happy lovers whispering, “Baby I love you so.”

We were meant to be, everyone could see
Tell me where did it all go
Cause all that’s left are only pictures of the love we used to know

Bridge:

No matter where I run
Even after all this time
Still I see you in my dreams each night

Chorus:
But they’re only pictures
Just two people I used to know
Happy lovers whispering, “Baby I love you so.”

We were meant to be, everyone could see
Tell me where did it all go?
Cause all that’s left are only pictures of the love we used to know

VERSE:

SEEMS LIKE TOUGH TIMES FOR LOVE THESE DAYS
AT THE FIRST SIGN OF TROUBLE PEOPLE JUST SAY GOODBYE
MAKES YOU KINDA WONDER IF OUR LOVE IS SO SPECIAL
CAN WE MAKE IT LAST A FOREVER, SHOULD WE EVEN GIVE IT A TRY

PRE-CHORUS:
GIRL I BELIEVE IN YOU AND I KNOW YOU BELIEVE IN ME
AND I SWEAR I'LL BE THERE, WHEREVER THE ROAD MIGHT LEAD

CHORUS:

TELL ME YOU'LL TAKE THIS LEAP OF FAITH
TRUSTING OUR LOVE WILL LAST FOR A LIFETIME
SAY YOU BELIEVE IN THE DREAMS WE'VE BEEN DREAMIN'
WILL YOU TAKE THIS RING AND MAKE THIS LEAP OF FAITH WITH ME

VERSE:

YOU SAY SURE IT'S FUN NOW, BUT THE GOIN GETS ROUGHER
WILL THERE BE A TIME WHEN YOU WE'RE WISHIN YOU WERE FREE?
GIRL I KNOW YOU’RE MY ONLY ROAD TO FREEDOM
YOU MAKE ME THE MAN I WANT TO BE.

PRE-CHORUS 2:

WELL I KNOW I THIS LIFE THERE AIN'T NO GUARENTEES
AND I'M ASKIN' YOU TONIGHT TO SHARE YOUR LIFE WITH ME.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:

DON'T LET YOUR FEARS KEEP YOU FROM LIVING
NEVER KNOWING HOW GOOD LIFE CAN BE
GIVE ME YOUR HAND AND TOGETHER WE'LL FLY
ON THE WINGS OF TWO HEARTS THAT BELIEVE
