Lyrics

Good Luck Woman

Written By: Josh Paulson

Gonna find me a whole new woman
Gonna find one with nothing wrong
Gonna take you off of your pedestal
Put you back where you belong
Gonna hold my head up higher
Gonna hold myself today
Gonna find you Good Love woman
Before you just get in the way

Because you
Got me crazy
Woman you
Gonna drive this man insane

I can hold you like I love you
I was told you were here to stay
Saw you in another mans arms
and oh I lost my head today
Maybe hold you a little too high now
Maybe love just a little too much
Gonna find you Good Luck Woman
Before you just get in the way

Because you got me crazy
Woman you
Gonna drive this man insane

Becasue you got me crazy
Woman you
gonna drive this man insane

Written By: Josh Paulson

I'm sitting on a mountain top
Just trying to find my place
And I drove for five hours
Just for this view
I can see the city below
and all the beauty it has to bear
But all I can think about is you

Because you're the only one who makes me smile
And you're the only one who's captured my attention
You're the only one who makes me speechless
You're the only one who can make me cry
And love every tear

I'm sitting on a mountain top
A mile above the world
Trying to open the flood gates
To let this rolling sea
Roll out of me
And there's a million people below me
But I can think of only one

Because you're the only one who makes me smile
And you're the only one who's captured my attention
You're the only one who makes me speechless
You're the only one who can make me cry
And love every tear

Becaue I know for every tear I cry
There'll be one in your eye

I love every tear
I can see the world from here
and all I'm missing is you.

Most Beautiful

Written By: Josh Paulson

The most beautiful girl I ever did see
Oh, she's in the same bar as me
And I knew form the first time I saw her face
Oh that she was oh the one

Oh but she's with another guy now
Oh well she's with another man
Gota do what I do
and try to make some plan
Maybe all night
Make it real Gonna find something
Nobody ever can
Take away from me

Oh but I gotta gotta know
Is it you that I'm looking for
You that I'm dreaming of
Is it you
I've been waiting on your smile
For a while
Oh Oh Oh

Worst time I ever had
Fell in love with a girl who was mad
Try to make something of myself
She went and took me to the coast
Took me away from everthing I love
Took me away form everyone I know
And I don't know why
She keeps beating on my mind

Oh but I gotta gotta know
Is it you that I'm looking for
You that I'm dreaming of
Is it you
I've been waiting on your smile
For a while
Oh Oh Oh

Saw you baby
When you were walking up
You've been walking for a while
Since you've been on my heart
I've been thinking
and I've been wondering
Does all this love in my head
Just go to make me wild

Oh but I gotta gotta know
Is it you that I'm looking for
You that I'm dreaming of
Is it you
I've been waiting on your smile
For a while
Oh Oh Oh

The most beautiful girl I ever did see
Oh she's in the same bar as me
Oh well she's with another guy now
Oh, well she's with another man

Gotta go and make some plan
