Something I Left Behind

Written By: Lance Barnett

FEEL LIKE I’M FLOATING ON THE SEA OF DESPAIR
RIDING ON A SHIP GOING NOWHERE
I’VE LET NO ONE GET TO ME,
GOT NOBODY TO LOVE AND CARE.

BEEN ON A JOURNEY FOR THE LONGEST TIME
SEARCHING FOR A DREAM I HAD IN MIND
EACH ROAD I TAKE SEEMS TO LEAD
TO SOMETHING I LEFT BEHIND.

SOMETHING I LEFT BEHIND
MAYBE IT’S YOU.
THINKING ABOUT ANOTHER TIME
WE ONCE PASSED THROUGH.
REMEMBERING PLACES AND FACES
I’D FORGOTTEN ABOUT -
I’M REACHING OUT
FOR SOMETHING I LEFT BEHIND.

I’M SUCH A LONG LONELY WAY FROM HOME
WANTING TO PICK UP A TELEPHONE
INSIDE A VOICE PLEADS WITH ME
BEGGING TO LEAVE IT ALONE.

SOMETHING I LEFT BEHIND
MAYBE IT’S YOU.
HOPING FROM TIME TO TIME
YOU THINK OF ME TOO.
WITH SET MY SIGHTS ON THE FUTURE
MY HEART KEEPS LOOKING BACK -
I’M KEEPING TRACK... OF SOMETHING
SOMETHING I LEFT BEHIND.

Don't Call Me

Written By: Lance Barnett

HEAR YOU TELLING ALL YOUR FRIENDS I’M NO GOOD
I’M DEMANDING - CONTROLLING AND YOU’RE MISUNDERSTOOD.
I WON’T STAND FOR CHEATING OR YOUR ALIBIS
ANY FOOL CAN SEE YOU’RE LYING BY THE LOOK IN YOUR EYES.

I KNOW THAT YOU’RE LEAVING CAUSE YOU’RE ALREADY GONE
EVEN WHEN WE’RE TOGETHER – I FEEL SO ALONE.
WELL BABY DON’T WORRY - YOU’LL BE RID OF ME
IF THAT’S THE WAY YOU WANT IT – I COMPLETELY AGREE.

DON’T CALL ME
I WON’T CALL YOU.
LET ME BE
DON’T TELL ME WE’RE NOT THROUGH.

GO YOUR WAY
I’LL GO MINE
DON’T CALL ME
I WON’T CALL YOU.

DON’T KNOW IF I CAN STAND THE PAIN
TEARING AT MY HEART.
JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS NOW
HOPING FOR A BETTER START.
I KNOW I DON’T WANT YOU AGAIN
I WANT A LOVER AND A FRIEND.

DON’T CALL ME
I WON’T CALL YOU.
LET ME BE
DON’T SAY THAT WE’RE NOT THROUGH.

GO YOUR WAY
I’LL GO MINE
DON’T CALL ME
I WON’T CALL YOU.

GETTING MYSELF TOGETHER LEAVING YOU BEHIND
THINGS ARE GOING BETTER – JUST A MATTER OF TIME.
STARTING TO HAVE FUN AGAIN – EVERY GIRL SHOULD
MET A GUY WHO TREATS ME RIGHT I KNEW THAT I WOULD.

NOW I’M HEARING FROM MY FRIENDS YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT ME
NOT COMPLAINING, NO MORE BLAMING - OH WHAT CAN THIS MEAN? DON’T EVEN START TO LET THOSE THOUGHTS BACK IN YOUR HEAD
I WON’T BE SOON FORGETTING THINGS YOU’VE DONE AND SAID.

DON’T CALL ME
I WON’T CALL YOU.
LET ME BE
I’LL HAVE TO SAY WE’RE THROUGH.

STAY AWAY
DON’T EVEN WANT YOU ON YOUR BEST DAY
DON’T CALL ME
I PROMISE I WON’T CALL YOU!

DON’T CALL ME
I GUARANTEE I WON’T CALL YOU!!

DON’T CALL ME
YOU CAN BET I WON’T CALL YOU!!!

Gettin' Over You

Written By: Lance Barnett

WAKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING
REACH OUT ACROSS MY BED.
FEEL FOR YOUR BODY WARMING
FIND A COLD SHEET INSTEAD.

IN THE HALL I LOOK FOR YOUR PICTURE
ALL I SEE IS AN EMPTY WALL.
WALK DOWNSTAIRS TOWARD THE KITCHEN,
LISTEN FOR YOUR VOICE TO CALL.

REACH FOR MY CUP OF COFFEE
ALL I GRAB’S A HANDFUL OF AIR.
I GET A SINKING FEELIN’
WHEN I REALIZE YOU’RE NO LONGER THERE.

NO MATTER WHERE I AM
OR WHAT I DO,
MOST EVERY THING BABY
REMINDS ME OF YOU.
IT’S MORE THAN A SIMPLE CASE
OF DÉJÀ VU
CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO GETTING OVER GETTING OVER YOU
NO THERE AIN’T NO GETTING OVER GETTING OVER YOU!

JUMP INTO MY FORD PICKUP
CRANK THE RADIO REAL LOUD
BOOT STOMPING PEDAL TO THE METAL
KICKING UP A DUSTY CLOUD.

I’M RACING AS FAST AS SHE’LL TAKE ME
FAR AWAY FROM ANY THOUGHTS OF YOU
I GOT ONE EYE IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR
THE OTHER TRYING TO SEE ME THROUGH.

SINGING ALONG TO A JOSH TURNER SONG
REACHING FOR THAT LOW KEY
IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG TO FIGURE OUT WHAT’S WRONG
CAN’T HEAR YOUR SWEET HARMONY.

NO MATTER WHERE I AM
OR WHAT I DO,
MOST EVERY THING BABY
REMINDS ME OF YOU.
IT’S MORE THAN A SIMPLE CASE
OF DÉJÀ VU
CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO GETTING OVER GETTING OVER YOU
NO THERE AIN’T NO GETTING OVER GETTING OVER YOU!

I WANTED MY FREEDOM – NOW I WANT YOU AGAIN
IT’S CLEAR TO ME NOW – YOU WERE MORE THAN A FRIEND.

SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE CRAZY HORSE
LEANING ‘GAINST THE BAR DRINKING BEER
A BIG BUSTED BLONDE IN A PINK TANK TOP
TURNS MY HEAD WITH A COME ON STARE.

SHE ORDERS A DRINK PUTS IT ON MY TAB
SAYING EVERYTHING BUT NOTHING AT ALL
SIPPING SEX ON THE BEACH LIKE YOU USED TO DO
THE CONVERSATION STARTS TO STALL.

SAID I’M STEPPING OUT FOR A CIGARETTE
THOUGHT I SAW YOU DANCING ‘CROSS THE FLOOR
MAKE MY ESCAPE - WITH NO PLACE TO GO
I END UP PARKED OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR.

No Second Chances

Written By: Lance Barnett

YOU CAN TAKE YOUR CHEATING WAYS,
GET OUT AND SHUT THE DOOR BEHIND.
I USED TO BE IN LOVE WITH YOU,
NOW I KNOW THAT LOVE IS BLIND.
YOU’VE BEEN SNEAKING AROUND MAKING ME YOUR FOOL,
SO AS OF TODAY – NO SECOND CHANCES FOR YOU!

REMEMBER BACK WHEN WE FIRST MET,
YOU SAID I WAS THE ONLY ONE.
I SAID LET’S TAKE OUR TIME YOU WOULDN’T WAIT -
SO WE HAD OUR FUN.
YOU’VE BEEN LYING WHEN YOU PROMISED TO BE TRUE,
SO AS OF THIS MOMENT – NO SECOND CHANCES FOR YOU!

I DON’T WANNA PLAY YOUR GAMES NO MORE,
WE’VE BEEN THROUGH THIS TOO MANY TIMES BEFORE.

I’M GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF APOLOGIES,
DON’T EVEN BOTHER GETTING BACK ON YOUR KNEES.

I’VE HAD MY SAY - YOU’VE HAD YOURS,
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO TALK ABOUT.
YOU’RE DOWN ON THE MAT,
YOU’VE BEEN COUNTED OUT.
NOW I’M SAVING MY LOVE FOR SOMEBODY TRUE,
CAUSE AS OF TODAY - NO SECOND CHANCES FOR YOU!

All I Want Is You

Written By: Lance Barnett

All I Want is You

MORE THAN ANYTHING,
MORE THAN ANY DREAM,
NO MATTER WHAT THE GAIN,
OR IN THE MIDST OF PAIN,
WHEN MY DAY IS THROUGH -
ALL I WANT IS YOU.

SET MY SIGHTS SO HIGH,
REACHING FOR THE SKY,
SOMETIMES I LOSE MY WAY,
LEAVE THE SURE PATH AND STRAY,
WHEN MY DAY IS THROUGH -
ALL I WANT IS YOU.

YOU’RE THE REASON FOR MY BEING,
WITHOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE HAS NO MEANING.
AND WHEN I’M FALLING DOWN
YOU’RE ALWAYS RIGHT HERE BY MY SIDE.

AS I GO MY WAY,
KNOWING YOU’RE HERE TO STAY,
YES I KNOW YOU’LL NEVER LEAVE ME,
MAKES LOVING YOU SO EASY,
AND WHEN MY DAYS ARE ALL THROUGH – I’LL KNOW
ALL I EVER WANTED WAS YOU.

ALL I WANT IS YOU (REPEAT)

Alone

Written By: Lance Barnett

Something’s troubling me,
They refuse to see,
All the things they do,
Shout – forget you,
Alone.

Everywhere I go,
Everyone I know,
Running scared in a paper sack,
Doing as they’re told,
Alone.

Second hand - first man,
Wretched woman on the witness stand,
Fighting over every dollar,
Just to see who wears the collar,
Alone.

What about the now generation,
Waiting on the next sensation?
Trapped inside the high tech box,
Hold the key – can’t find the lock,
Alone
Alone
So Alone
All Alone.

Running On You

Written By: Lance Barnett

Remember back in the day you were king,
Nothing ever seemed to faze you.
Everyone swayed so easily,
Didn’t seem like much they could do.

Riding the tide of personal pride,
You didn’t think you needed a friend.
Nowhere to hide from the demons inside,
It seems they took control of your head.

Time was always on your side,
Payment hadn’t come due.
You would never compromise,
Now time’s running on you.

Seasons come seasons pass you never change,
A coward’s role is all you fulfill.
The actors in your play just slow fade away,
That happens when they’re all second bill.

Genius isn’t always recognized by her peers,
I guess you’re way ahead of your time.
Perhaps you’ll be discovered in a thousand years,
It’s certain that you’re way past your prime.

Time is suddenly passing by,
Payment’s gonna come due.
Who’s left standing by your side? -
Time is running on you.

How’s it feel to know the deal you counted on,
Is nothing but a dream fallen through?
Your rising star was supposed to shoot far
Who listens to your bull shift excuse?

Keep your façade – it’s all that you’ve got,
Keep fantasizing right till the end.
You hid from the truth - now it’s found you,
Emptiness is your closest friend.

Time won’t listen to your lies,
Master’s payments come due.
Now there’s no place left to hide,
Time’s through running on you.

Time was never on your side
It’s turned you into a fool.
Your whole life has passed you by
Time’s quit running on you.
