Lyrics

Devil Wont' Go

Written By: QuickShift

I said I’d never put up with a guy who does that!”
You said, “You won’t put up with a girl who doesn’t do that!”
I did……You did
What changed our minds was that first kiss…now

Chorus
Loves gonna take us where the devil won’t go
Just a sinner & a saint traveling down the same road
Never say never
You never know
Loves gonna take us where the devil won’t go
Yeah, love’s gonna take us where the devil won’t gooo

Things got tougher than we ever believed
We got tired of fighting, ready to leave
We could of …We would of
Till love stepped in & threw down the gloves

Repeat Chorus
Bridge
Out Chorus

Loves gonna take us where the devil won’t go
Just a sinner & a saint traveling down the same road
Never say never
You never know
Loves gonna take us where the devil won’t go
Just a sinner & a saint traveling down the same road
Never say never
You never know
Loves gonna take us where the devil won’t go
Yeah, loves gonna take us where the devil won’t go

Leave The Light On

Written By: QuickShift


Leave the Light On

Everyone has someone to leave the light on for
I lie here at night wondering why I don’t
Is it true two souls are destined to meet
Did I miss him already - Will he ever find me?

Chorus:
I had a few close calls
Almost broke this heart
I stopped crying
I kept trying
I want someone to hold
Give all I have to give & help fill this emptiness
I want more
Someone to leave the light on for

The years have past, thought I’d come so far
Now I lie here tossing & turning in your arms
Will you & I spend our lives alone
Was I not meant to have a child of my own?

Chorus:
I had a few close calls
Almost broke this heart
I stopped crying
I kept trying
I want someone to hold
Give all I have to give & help fill this emptiness
I want more
Someone to leave the light on for

Bridge

Chorus
I had a few close calls
Almost broke this heart
I stopped crying
I kept trying
I want someone to hold
Give all I have to give & help fill this emptiness
I want more
Someone to leave the light on for
I want more
Someone to leave the light on for

That's How She Is

Written By: QuickShift

She looks at herself more than you do/My whole outfits worth less than her shoes/With a smile or pout, makes outrageous demands/Knows how to get what she wants from her man Chorus: She’s a high maintenance, high risk/High rolling honey you can’t resist/Oohhh, that’s how she is/I know your playing for love, she’s the center of your world/She’s not playing for keeps, she ain’t that kinda girl/She’s a high maintenance, high risk & that’s how she is, Oohhh, that’s how she is. This trophy girl is messing up your world/Your’re changing everything just to suit her/Lap it up like a lovesick puppy dog/She’s got you on leash at her beck & call. Repeat Chorus/ Bridge Out Chorus

Walk Alone

Written By: Quickshfit

Walk Alone

I walk these streets alone
Time and time again
And the pain has set in
There’s something coming in the warm, warm wind

And its you
I know you’re out there
I’ve seen you a thousand times
Its you
Who keeps me standing strong against the tide
There will come a day
When I don’t have to walk these streets alone
Maybe today will be the day
When I don’t have to walk these streets alone

I’ve waited so long
I keep dreaming the dream
I’m counting on you
Come on I’m waiting on the warm, warm wind

Long Gone to Mexico

Written By: Quickshift

Long Gone to Mexico

Dark night down in the city
his clothes smell of whiskey
A young girl waits by the doorway
It’s making her crazy

The sun will rise tomorrow
Everyday the river flows
You won’t find me in the morning
I’ll be long gone to Mexico
I’ll be long gone to Mexico

Well some say she threw it all away
On one crazy night
She found more than she bargained for
Booked herself a one-way flight

Repeat Chorus

Out Chorus

I Pay Everyone With Love

Written By: Quickshfit

I, I love this Irish pub
I, I love loving - a little too much
Maybe I wear - my skirt – too high
Maybe you heard - that dirty white lie

Chorus:
I, I, I ,I - I, I, I, I
I, I, I, I - I, I, I ,I pay everyone
Pay everyone with love
I, I, I ,I - I, I, I, I
I, I, I, I - I, I, I , I pay everyone
Pay everyone with love

Maybe I do, Maybe I don’t
Think you have the last laugh
Does it stick in your throat
Tell me, tell me
You got something for me

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge

Whatever you think
Whatever I thought
Whatever you think
What makes you think
What I thought of

Out chorus
