Lyrics

Til The Last Margarita

Written By: Lane Gaffney

it's where the senoritas go for margaritas
at the end of a hard day at work
where the guys stop by to loosen up their ties
and sit next to the beautiful girls
it doesn't matter when you stop by
we're all here just to have a good time

Chorus
Whoa-oh let the tequila flow
take the salt and the lime
leave your troubles behind
Whoa-oh let your worries go
cause we won't go home
'til the last margarita is gone

you can tell Jose, to chase your blues away
and dream about the waves and the beach
or you can grab his friend the good ol' captain
he's never too far out of your reach
we'll be here until we can't walk
or until we run out of salt

chorus
Whoa-oh let tequila flow
take the salt and the lime
leave your troubles behind
Whoa-oh let your worries go
cause we won't go home
'til the last margarita is gone

solo
bridge
you don't need money or an airplane ticket
just a drink with a little umbrella stuck in it

Chorus X2
no we won't go home
'til the last margarita is gone

You Complete Me

Written By: Lane Gaffney

BEFORE YOU I NEVER KNEW
THAT LIFE COULD BE THIS WAY
YOU SHOW ME ENDLESSLY
HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME EVERYDAY
WITHOUT YOU IN MY LIFE
A PART OF ME WOULD NEVER BE RIGHT

CHORUS
YOU COMPLETE ME COMPLETELY
YOUR LOVE FILLS A HEART THAT WAS EMPTY
YOU MAKE ME WHOLE
LIKE I’VE NEVER KNOWN
A PERFECT FIT LIKE THE LAST PUZZLE PIECE
YOU COMPLETE ME

MAY OUR HEARTS NEVER PART
THROUGHOUT THE END OF TIME
THICK OR THIN HAND IN HAND
WE'LL STAND SIDE BY SIDE
MY DAY TO MY NIGHT
TO A BLIND HEART YOU BRING SIGHT

CHORUS
YOU COMPLETE ME COMPLETELY
YOUR LOVE FILLS A HEART THAT WAS EMPTY
YOU MAKE ME WHOLE
LIKE I'VE NEVER KNOWN
A PERFECT FIT LIKE THE LAST PUZZLE PIECE
YOU COMPLETE ME

SOLO

REPEAT CHORUS

The Skies In Texas

Written By: Lane Gaffney

I can read that look in your eyes
you're worried what will happen after we say goodbye
I've thought about the very same thing
we'll just have to take it day by day

chorus
you wonder how long I'll love you
I'll be true as long as the skies in Texas are blue

Now I am miles away from that Texas sky
but I know what it looks like in my mind
and i bet that sky hasn't changed
like my love it's still the same

chorus
you wonder how long I'll love you
I'll be true as long as the skies in Texas are blue

bridge
Every now and then a storm may blow in
but my love won't fade at the end of the day
a strong wind will blow through
and turn the grey skies into baby blue

chorus
you wonder how long I'll love you
I'll be true as long as the skies in Texas are blue

I Guarantee It

Written By: Lane Gaffney

I WANT TO STAND BY YOUR SIDE
WHEN THINGS GO WRONG I WANT TO MAKE IT RIGHT
AND I WANT TO SAY I DO
AND DO EVERYTHING IN EVERY WAY FOR ME AND YOU
BUT EVERYDAY CAN’T BE LIKE TODAY
SOMETIMES THERE’S GONNA BE SOME RAIN

CHORUS
I GUARANTEE SOME TIMES WILL BE ROUGH
AND THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU THINK
THAT YOU WANT TO GIVE UP
BUT I CAN PROMISE HAPPINESS AND LOVE
AS LONG AS I LIVE
I GUARANTEE IT

WITH THIS RING I THEE WED
AND HOLD CLOSE EVERY WORD THAT I SAID
FROM HERE AND NOW ON
OUR TWO LIVES OUR TWO HEARTS WILL BECOME ONE
IN THE GOOD AND IN THE BAD
AND ALL THE TIMES THAT WE’LL HAVE

CHORUS
I GUARANTEE SOME TIMES WILL BE ROUGH
AND THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU THINK
THAT YOU WANT TO GIVE UP
BUT I CAN PROMISE HAPPINESS AND LOVE
AS LONG AS I LIVE
I GUARANTEE IT

SOLO

CHORUS

What Daddy Said

Written By: Lane Gaffney

Be honest don't get into telling lies
be strong remember you don't have to fight
always have faith and believe in love
when ever you get down you can always get back up

Chorus
What daddy said
I never knew sometimes I didn't understand
as I grew up from a boy into a man
I found out I learned a lot from what daddy said

Think twice only fools leap first
be a leader don't just follow the herd
choose your words say what you mean
there are things in life worth saving more than just the green

Chorus
What daddy said
I never knew sometimes I didn't understand
as I grew up from a boy into a man
I found out I learned a lot from what daddy said

look 'em in the eye never let 'em see you cry
learn the value of a dollar cause a penny saved today is one you'll have tomorrow

Chorus
What daddy said
I never knew sometimes I didn't understand
as I grew up from a boy into a man
I found out I learned a lot from what daddy said
I found out I learned a lot from what daddy said

Little Hope Diamond

Written By: Lane Gaffney

A band of gold, a stone that sparkles and shines
three little words and a promise for all time
a little box that holds great big dreams
just one night turning into eternity

Chorus
there's a lot of wishes in a wishing well
a lot of stories to tell
sometimes this world just needs a reminder
there's a lot of love in a little hope diamond

a boy and a girl living in a small town
a little church where they take some vows
build a home with a white picket fence
a dog and a cat and a couple of kids

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
Now they're reaching sixty years young
and everyone asks them hows it done

Chorus
There's a lot of wishes in a wishing well
a lot of stories to tell
sometimes this world just needs a reminder
there's a lot of love in a little hope diamond

What Cures a Heartache

Written By: Lane Gaffney

They say coffee cures a hangover
and asprin helps to ease the mind
drink water to cure the hiccups
and everything heals with time
but I can't wait
with this much pain

What cures a heartache
What can I do about the pain
Doctor there must be something I can take
Tell me what cures a heartache

They have pills to take for this
and pills to take for that
there must be something
for a good love gone bad
I'll be alright
as soon as they find

What cures a heartache
What can I do about the pain
Doctor there must be something I can take
Tell me what cures a heartache

Bridge:
There's a pain in my chest
or all in my head
somewhere in the back of my mind
someday I just might find

What cures a heartache
What can I do about the pain
Doctor there must be something I can take
Tell me what cures a heartache
I'll do whatever it takes
Tell me what cures a heartache
