Lyrics

Steal Away

Written By: John Turner

Too many red Jeep cherokees
driving 'round this town
teasing me to think maybe
she's still around
I keep thinkin' maybe I'll see her
behind the steering wheel
but I'm only disappointed
'cause I know she had to steal away

Steal away
she had to steal away

You know she called me late last night
quarter after two
How I longed to hear her voice
but it still sounded new
She said she wondered if this old town
was missing her very much
I hope I didn't disappoint her
'cause all I said was that I miss her touch.

Lately I've been pacing between
the nail holes in these walls
Looking back on little lies
I hung all over her
Funny how in hindsight
I would've changed my world
for just a little more time
a little more time with her

These days I'm wondering
has she forgotten me for good
I lay awake some nights thinking
maybe I should
hop a flight to meet her
where ever she might be
but I'm only disappointed
cause I know she's already said goodbye to me

Too many red Jeep cherokees
driving 'round this town
teasing me to think maybe
she's still around
I keep thinkin' maybe I'll see her
behind the steering wheel
but I'm only disappointed
'cause I know she had to steal away

Steal away
she had to steal away
Steal away
she had to steal away

Find Your Way Back

Written By: John Turner

You said you were going away for a while
but I knew then you wouldn't get further than a few miles
'cause the distance on a run away can be a short one
you get halfway to somebody els and see you
left behind the wrong one

The trip back won't get any easier
but the makin' up sure gets sweeter
and I hope that you'll

find your way back
to the place where you left our love

You thought you'd be better off without me
now you just sit drivin' around trying not to let yourself come back here
wheels spun, give out from your journey
well take a rest and then head my way
there's no need to be in a hurry

'Cause the love we have won't leave us
the love we found won't cheat us
'cause I know that you'll

Find your way back to the place where you left our love
that you'll find your way back to the place where you left our love

No need to knock just walk right through my door
No need for invitations, no need to run any more

Find your way back to the place where you left our love

Repeat

This Heart You Left Me With

Written By: John Turner

I kept all your I love yous
tucked away like they were true
but the echoes left here now
sound more like lies
I held your promises inside
like some old song's worn out lines
now I wish I could throw away
a line or two

Tear it out if thats what it takes
rip out my heart if that will stop this pain

Just take it with you when you go
this heart you left me with
this heart you left me with
Cause I can't keep holdin' on to it
this heart you left me with
this heart, this heart you left me with

I know you want me to move on
put our past where it belongs
but a piece of you is still inside my heart
it must be hard for you to see
the pain you left inside of me
had to ask 'cause you walked away so easily

I can't believe this is what you want
but I'll let go if it will right the wrong

Just take it with you when you go
this heart you left me with
this heart you left me with
Cause I can't keep holdin' on to it
this heart you left me with
this heart, this heart you left me with

Tear it out if that's what it takes
rip out my heart if it will stop this pain

Repeat Chorus
