Lyrics

Exactly what I didn't want to Happen

Written By: Tony Mullins, Whitney Duncan, Richard Fagan

Exactly what I didn’t want to Happen

My life used to feel so safe and secure
Being on my own independent I’m so sure
Didn’t need nobody to complicate my life
And like a boat out of the blue you caught my eye
(Chorus)
And that’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen
One look was all it took and that was it
Yeah you came on with love so strong
My heart didn’t stand a chance
When you packed that comin’ over here,
Gimme got have you bit
And that’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen
But I’m glad it did

Yeah I used to stay home watch TV by myself
Didn’t have to share my benefits with anybody else
I used to find peace of mind and my solitude
And now I’m going crazy every minute without you
(Chorus)
And that’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen
But you and me had to be a perfect fit
Yeah right from the get go I couldn’t let go
When he held me tight I felt so right then I said I want
Some more of this
And that’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen
But I’m glad it did

(Guitar Solo)
I wasn’t livin’ till I found your love
I didn’t know the what I really needed or was
(1st and 2nd Chorus)
Exactly what I didn’t want to happen
One look was all it took and that was it
Yeah you came on with love so strong
My heart didn’t stand a chance
When you packed that comin’ over here,
Gimme got have you bit
And that’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen
But you and me had to be a perfect fit
Yeah right from the get go I couldn’t let go
When he held me tight I felt so right then I said I want
Some more of this
And that’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen
But I’m glad it did

Yeah exactly what I didn’t want to happen
But I’m glad it did
Oh I’m glad it did

Set It on Fire

Written By: Tony Mullins, and Danny Wells

Set it on Fire

Sittin’ on the couch late at night
Looking out the window at the street light
Wine bottle in a paper sack half empty on the floor
I’ve laid down about three times,
But sleep ain’t never took my mind
Cause all this stuff remind me of you
Only one thing I know to do is
(Chorus)
Haul it all out in a field
Only way I know to kill this pain
Kick out the back of my truck
And stack it up
Let emotion start this thing
Douse it down with some kerosene
Sit and think you one last time
And set it on fire
Set it on fire!

Like our bed that we slept on
I let it burn till the break of dawn
Let all those photographs go up in smoke
I know I never live it down
Till it’s all black ashes laying on the ground
Out of sight out of mind
I’m telling you its time!

(Chorus)
To haul it all out in a field
Only way I know to kill this pain
Kick out the back of my truck
And stack it up
Let emotion start this thing
Douse it down with some kerosene
Sit and think you one last time
And set it on fire!
Whooooo….
Yeah! To haul it all out in a field
Only way I know to kill this pain
Kick out the back of my truck
And stack it up
Let emotion start this thing
Douse it down with some kerosene
Sit and think you one last time
Set it on fire
Set it on fire!
Gonna strike a match and set it
I’m gonna set it on fire
