Lyrics

Skin Deep

Written By: Kris Martin (Oswald)

When I first saw your face
Well I knew it was love at first sight
You were in the right place
Up under a Budweiser light
I thought I'd found a lover
To connect with my soul
But in the morning light girl
Your true colors show

Your beauty's
Skin Deep
Just a coat of make-up
I'll leave
Hope she doesn't wake up
Phone rings
Pray she keeps her eyes shut
Where's my keys
Got to get to my truck
I wonder if she's got my number
I don't even know her name
I prefer to keep it that way
Oh, Oh
She's skin deep

I think I left my wallet
I'll cancel all my credit cards
I wonder who all saw it
When I left with her from the bar
Man she sure looked different
With a pitcher or two
Now my cell phone's ringing
Don't know what I should do

Her beauty's
Skin Deep
Just a coat of make-up
Well I'll leave
Hope she doesn't wake up
Phone rings
Pray she keeps her eyes shut
Where's my keys
Got to get to my truck
I wonder if she's got my number
I don't even know her name
I prefer to keep it that way
Oh, Oh
She's Skin Deep

Yeah standing at another bar
The very next night
Saw another beauty
Underneath the Budweiser light

And she was
Skin Deep
Just a coat of make-up
I'll leave and
Hope she doesn't wake up
Phone rings
Pray she keeps her eyes shut
Where's my keys
Got to get to my truck
I wonder if she's got my number
I don't even know her name
I prefer to keep it that way
Oh, Oh
She's Skin Deep
Skin Deep

Martin Springs

Written By: Kris Martin (Oswald)

Every Summer
I remember
Wild adventures
In the hills
Swimming holes and
Fisihing poles and
Tractor rides, man
What a thrill

In a little place called Martin Springs
My Ma and Pa they taught me things
That all them city schools ain't figured out
All that education's fine
But when it comes down to the line
You gotta learn what life is all about
It's about those little things
Like moon pies and front porch swings
And sittin' down to supper with good friends
Spending time with family
That cool crisp water in the creek
And summer days that seem to never end

Every summer
I remember
Wild adventures
In the hills
Swimming holes and
Fishing poles and
Tractor rides man
What a thrill

Sometimes I forget those things
They taught me and my life just seems
Too fast to notice all that's passing by
Slowing down is hard sometimes
When life has got you in a bind
But you've just got to find the time
For all those little things
Like Sunday morning church and singing
Songs that make your soul fill up with joy
The first time that she held your hand
When you bought those wedding bands
And everytime you hold that little boy

Every summer
I remember
Wild Adventures
In the hills
Swimming holes and
Fishing poles and
Tractor rides, man
What a thrill

Every summer
I remember
Wild Adventures
In the hills
Swimming holes and
Fishing poles and
Tractor rides man
What a thrill

Nobody Wins

Written By: Kris Martin (Oswald)

I’m a little hot tempered sometimes
I reckon that it’s left me just a little cold and empty inside
But you, you should have let me know how you felt
I guess I didn’t realize it I was driving you to someone else
When I walked out that night
Just blowin’ off some steam
The things I said to you
I didn’t really mean
But don’t you think you went
A little to extreme
I told you I was sorry
But forgiving ain’t your thing

Cold hearted woman, hot tempered man
Two lonely people, single again
One lost his head, one lost her heart
Both lost a lover, livin’ apart
Nobody wins

You, you wanted more than I could give
I wanted you more than I ever could have said
But we, we should have spent more time talkin’
Stead of fussin’, fightnin’, hurtin’, now you’re walkin’
Right out of my life
To find another man
We didn’t have to fight
You didn’t understand
I guess I could’nt put
My lovin’ into words
I tried to tell you girl
But you must have never heard

Cold hearted woman, hot tempered man
Two lonely people, single again
One lost his head, one lost her heart
Both lost a lover, livin’ apart
Nobody Wins

Well I guess this is goodbye
Until we meet again
And I can’t help but think
I’m losin’ my best friend
Maybe I’ll cool down
And you’ll learn to forgive
We’ll try it one more time
So we don’t both have to live as a

Cold hearted woman, hot tempered man
Two lonely people, single again
One lost his head, one lost her heart
Both lost a lover, livin’ apart
Nobody Wins

Waffle House Waitresses

Written By: Kris Martin (Oswald)

Waffle House waitresses and truck stop beauty queens
Things look up when the lights go down
And if you’ve been there, you know what I mean
Yeah I’d give up half of Tennessee
Just to have you here with me
But for now it’s Waffle House waitresses
And truck stop beauty queens

Well I used to have a brick home
Now my house sits up on blocks
Two fancy cars in my garage
Now everything I had she’s got
Well I used to live the high life
Before you went away
Now I’m drinkin too much coffee
And I smoke two packs a day

Waffle House waitresses and truck stop beauty queens
Things look up when the lights go down
And if you’ve been there, you know what I mean
Yeah I’d give up half of Tennessee
Just to have you here with me
But for now it’s Waffle House waitresses
And truck stop beauty queens

She ain’t too sophisticated
She ain’t got your kind of class
But her idea of dating
Involves beer and catchin’ bass
And at three o’clock in the morning
You know the benefits are nice
I get my hashbrowns smothered, diced and chunked
And I only pay half price

Waffle House waitresses and truck stop beauty queens
Things look up when the lights go down
And if you’ve been there, you know what I mean
Yeah I’d give up half of Tennessee
Just to have you here with me
But for now it’s Waffle House waitresses
And truck stop beauty queens

Well I guess that things ain’t all that bad
In fact, it’s kind of fun
Cause she like me just the way I am
And when all is said and done
I love them

Waffle House waitresses and truck stop beauty queens
Things look up when the lights go down
And If you’ve been there, you know what I mean
Yeah I’ll keep that half of Tennessee
I don’t need you here with me
Cause I’ve got Waffle House waitresses
And truck stop beauty queens
Yeah I’ve got Waffle House waitresses
And truck stop beauty queens

Slow Down

Written By: Kris Martin (Oswald)

I can’t help but notice
We’re spending less time together
And sometimes I wonder
How we’re going to make it through
And it’s nobody’s fault
But life is so fast
And there’s things that just have to be done
So I’m spending the night
Trying to make it all up to you

Slow down, take your time
Cause there’s nothing but us going on here tonight
So slow down, not so fast
I’m just trying to rekindle a flame from the past
You’re still the same girl
And I’m still the same man
Making love like the first time around
So darling hold on tight
And slow down

Remember the nights
Back in the very beginning
Just like high school kids
We’d never get enough
Yeah we lost some sleep
But our love was so deep
That we’d lay there and talk for hours
And sometimes the talkin’
Was as good as the makin’ love

Slow down, take your time
Cause there’s nothing but us going on here tonight
So slow down, not so fast
I’m just trying to rekindle a flame from the past
You’re still the same girl
And I’m still the same man
Making love like the first time around
So darling, hold on tight
And slow down

Yeah you’re still the same girl
And I’m still the same man
Making love like the first time around
So darling, hold on tight
And slow down
