Lyrics

Same Old Heartache

Written By: Rick Alan Carpenter

SAME OLD HEARTACHE

Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day
What’s It Gonna Take To Make It Go Away?
Even Though You’re Gone, Long Gone
All My Love For You Stays
Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day

Well I Woke Up Feeling Pretty Good This Morning
When Suddenly It Hit Without A Warning
Out Of The Blue Your Memory Came Calling
Next Thing I Knew My Bitter Tears Were Falling

Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day
What’s It Gonna Take To Make It Go Away?
Even Though You’re Gone, Long Gone
All My Love For You Stays
Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day

No Matter Where I Go Somehow You Find Me
The Pain Is Always Sneaking Up Behind Me
So I’ll Relive The Sadness And The Sorrow
At Least Enough To Last Until Tomorrow

When You Left I Said “Go On Who Needs You Anyway?”
Little Did I Know The Price My Pride Would Make Me Pay
And Pay And Pay

Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day
What’s It Gonna Take To Make It Go Away?
Even Though You’re Gone, Long Gone
All My Love For You Stays
Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day
Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day
Same Old Heartache, Brand New Day

Heaven Knows Why

Written By: Rick Alan Carpenter

HEAVEN KNOWS WHY

Heaven Knows Why I Love You
Heaven Knows You Don’t Care
When The Sun Goes Down You’re Not Around
Can’t Find You Anywhere
I Never Ask You Where You’ve Been
’Cause I Know You’d Only Lie
Still Can’t Leave You
Heaven Knows Why

Heaven Knows Why You Break My Heart
Heaven Knows You’re Cruel
But I’ll Be Right Here If You Need Me
Your Faithful Lovesick Fool
I Call You But You Don’t Answer
Another Night Crawls By
Still I Wait For You
Heaven Knows Why

There’s No Earthly Reason
For Me To Be With You
When It’s Plain To See That your Love For Me Is Gone
I’ll Try To Find An Answer
Somewhere Up Above
To Tell Me Why My Heart Keeps Hangin’ On

Heaven Knows Why I Listen
When You Tell Me I’m To Blame
You Make Me Feel Like I Deserve
The Torment And The Shame
Friends Laugh Behind My Back
I Shake My Head And Sigh
Still I Can’t Leave You
Heaven Knows Why
Still I Can’t Leave You
Heaven Knows Why
Heaven Knows Why
Heaven Knows Why
Heaven Knows Why

Nothing Left To Lose (But the Blues)

Written By: Rick Alan Carpenter

Nothing Left To Lose (But the Blues)

My Heart’s Already Broken
You’ve Taken Care Of That
You Left Me With The Hyundai
And Took The Cadillac
Got A Letter From Your Lawyer
Telling Me More Bad News
But Why Should I Worry
I’ve Got Nothing Left To Lose But The Blues

All The Money’s Gone
From The Checking Account
The Landlord’s At The Door
Says He’s Throwing Me Out
The Bills Keep Pilin’ Up
They’re Long Overdue
But I’m Not Upset ‘Cause
I’ve Got Nothing Left To Lose But The Blues

We All Have Our Troubles
We All Have Our Cross To Bear
But Lately I Feel Like I’ve Had More Than My Share

Repeat

I’ll Scrape Up A Few Bucks
Go Out On The Town
Got A Couple Dozen
Sorrows To Drown
If I Start Actin’ Foolish
Got The Perfect Excuse
It’s Easy To Do When
You’ve Got Nothing Left To Lose But The Blues
It’s Easy To Do When
You’ve Got Nothing Left To Lose But The Blues
And I’ve Got Nothing Left To Lose - But The Blues
