Lyrics

Don't Leave Me Burning

Written By: John Griffin

I can feel the mercury on the rise
It’s not from the heat outside
In fact there’s a cool breeze coming through the screen
But as soothing as it might sound
Sweat’s breaking on my brow
And my t-shirt’s starting to cling

Because baby
Your touch is like fire
Kiss me cool this desire
But baby don’t leave me burning
Don’t leave me burning
Baby
Stop stoking this passion
Just let me go to ashes
But baby don’t leave me burning
Don’t leave me burning

All choked up and my throat is dry
Needing something that will satisfy
But all you offer me is a drink
Contemplating the ice in that glass
Wondering how it can last
Cuz’ I’d be melted if it were me

Because baby
Your touch is like fire
Kiss me cool this desire
But baby don’t leave me burning
Don’t leave me burning
Baby
Stop stoking this passion
Just let me go to ashes
But baby don’t leave me burning
Don’t leave me burning

Because baby
Your touch is like fire
Kiss me cool this desire
But baby don’t leave me burning
Don’t leave me burning
Baby
Stop stoking this passion
Just let me go to ashes
But baby don’t leave me burning
Don’t leave me burning

Carolina Kiss

Written By: John Griffin

SHE COMES CREEPING IN JUST LIKE THE FALL
RIDING THE COOL MELODY
OF AN OLD JAMES TAYLOR SONG
RAISING THE HAIR ON MY ARMS
AND SHOOTING ME STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART

I MISS HER CAROLINA KISS
THE HONEYSUKLE DEW UPON HER LIPS
I CLOSE MY EYES AND I REMEMBER WHEN SHE WAS MINE
RUNNER HER FINGERS THROUGH MY HAIR
THE SUMMER BREEZE, SMELL THE CLOVER IN THE AIR
SO PURE I COULD TASTE THE INNOCENCE
I MISS HER CAROLINA KISS

THE EVENING SKY IS FULL OF STARS
AND THOUGH SHES A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
I CAN FEEL HER BEATING HEART
BREAKING IT’S WAY THROUGH THE NIGHT
IN PERFECT RHYTHM WITH MINE

I MISS HER CAROLINA KISS
THE HONEYSUKLE DEW UPON HER LIPS
I CLOSE MY EYES AND I REMEMBER WHEN SHE WAS MINE
RUNNER HER FINGERS THROUGH MY HAIR
THE SUMMER BREEZE, SMELL THE CLOVER IN THE AIR
SO PURE I COULD TASTE THE INNOCENCE
I MISS HER CAROLINA KISS

I FEEL HER HEART BEATING IN THE NIGHT
IN PERFECT RHYTHM WITH MINE

I MISS HER CAROLINA KISS
THE HONEYSUKLE DEW UPON HER LIPS
I CLOSE MY EYES AND I REMEMBER WHEN SHE WAS MINE
RUNNER HER FINGERS THROUGH MY HAIR
THE SUMMER BREEZE, SMELL THE CLOVER IN THE AIR
SO PURE I COULD TASTE THE INNOCENCE
I MISS HER CAROLINA KISS

LOVIN’ SOMEONE, LOSIN’ SOMEONE AND MOVIN’ ON

Written By: John Griffin

I DON’T FEEL THE NEED
WHEN I SEE YOU ON THE STREET
TO TURN AROUND AND WALK THE OTHER WAY

AND IT’S NO BIG SURPRISE
I CAN LOOK YOU IN THE EYE
AND NOT BAT A LASH WHEN I ASK ABOUT YOUR LIFE

THERE ARE TIMES I STILL LOSE SLEEP
THINKIN’ ABOUT ALL WE’LL NEVER BE
AND EVEN SHED A TEAR BY THE EARLY MORNING LIGHT

IT’S JUST PART OF LOVIN’ SOMEONE,
LOSIN’ SOMEONE
AND MOVIN’ ON

I TOOK YOUR PICTURE FROM ITS FRAME
TRIED TO THROW IT AWAY
BUT THE DRESSER DRAW’S STILL HOLDING YOU FOR NOW

IT THE LITTLE STEPS I FIND
THAT TRIP ME UP MOST TIMES
BUT IT’S BEEN LONG ENOUGH TO GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY

IT FEELS JUST LIKE A DREAM
WEREN’T WE SO HAPPY
I HAVE TO PINTCH MYSELF TO MAKE SURE THIS IS REAL

IT’S JUST PART OF LOVIN’ SOMEONE,
LOSIN’ SOMEONE
AND MOVIN’ ON

I USE TO HIDE WHEN I’D SEE YOUR FACE
AFRAID OF THE FEELINGS LEFT BEHIND
BUT I’VE LEARNED THE TWINGE OF A HEARTACH
JUST MEANS YOU’RE STILL ALIVE

SO AS AWKWARD AS IT MAY BE
FOR ME TO FINALY SEE
ANOTHER WOMAN STANDING BY YOUR SIDE

IT’S JUST PART OF LOVIN’ SOMEONE,
LOSIN’ SOMEONE
AND MOVIN’ ON

MORE RIGHT HERE THAN WRONG

Written By: John Griffin

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING STILL FUMING FROM LAST NIGHT
I TURNED TO WAKE YOU UP A DRAW ANOTHER BATTLE LINE
BUT AT THE SIGHT OF YOU SLEEPING
THE ANGER WAS GONE

FROZEN IN THE MOMENT I REFLECTED ON OUR FIGHT
YES I STILL DISAGREE BUT THAT WAS NO WAY TO TREAT MY WIFE
I TURNED THE RING AROUND MY FINGER
AND THOUGHT
THERE’S MORE RIGHT HERE THAN WRONG

YOU KNOW I’M NO DEVIL
AND I KNOW YOU’RE NO SAINT
THANK GOD THE REASONS WE’RE TOGETHER
ARE NOT UP FOR DEBATE
AND EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE OUR MOMENTS
WHEN WE TEST EACH OTHERS VOWS
WE’VE BEEN SO FAR TOGETHER
THERE’S NO WAY I’D TURN BACK NOW

WATCHING YOU IN SILENCE AS THE DAWN REACHED FOR YOUR FACE
I THOUGHT ABOUT THE DREAMS THAT HAVEN’T ALWAYS GONE OUR WAY
HOW MONEY’S TIGHT
AND HOW WE WORK MORE THAN WE PLAY

BUT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE ARE SO MUCH IN SYNC
YOU’LL TELL A JOKE THAT HAS ME ROLLING AT YOUR FEET
AND IT’S THE PERFECT END
TO A DAY THAT’S BEEN TO LONG, TO LONG
YEAH THERE’S MORE RIGHT HERE THAN WRONG

YOU KNOW I’M NO DEVIL
AND I KNOW YOU’RE NO SAINT
THANK GOD THE REASONS WE’RE TOGETHER
ARE NOT UP FOR DEBATE
AND EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE OUR MOMENTS
WHEN WE TEST EACH OTHERS VOWS
WE’VE BEEN SO FAR TOGETHER
THERE’S NO WAY I’D TURN BACK NOW

WHEN I WOKE THIS MORNING I WAS BLIND AS I COULD BE
BUT IN A FEW STOLEN MOMENTS I SAW THINGS SO PERFECTLY
SO I CLOSED MY EYES AND LAID BACK DOWN WHERE I BELONGED
YEAH THERE’S MORE RIGHT HERE THAN WRONG
