River Dance

Written By: Ruben Estevez

River Dance

(written by: Ruben Estevez)

Verse:
Momma raised me right near the river dam
Baptized in these currents by the preacher man
Lots of fishing, a little bit of kissing
Something ‘bout these waters; they’re just a part of who I am

Channel:
I can hear that racing rhythm rushing through my bones
I can feel that peaceful water deep inside my soul

Chorus:
And it takes me high, high as the mountain
White water rapids under deep blue skies
It takes me low, down to the valley
Winding through the meadows on a starry night
Wu-oh, it’ll put you in a trance
When you feel the River Dance
The River Dance

Verse:
Another whiskey night down at the Red Canoe
The dogs howling at the man in the moon
Smoke rising, banjos are flying
All of us are dancing and singing that familiar tune, and

Channel:
I can hear that racing rhythm rushing through my bones
I can feel that peaceful water deep inside my soul

(repeat chorus)

Bridge:
Come down, down to the river, won’t you come down
Come down, down to the river, won’t you come down
Hey, won’t you come down

(repeat chorus twice)

Outro: (bridge with counter melody lines below)
Don’t hold back now, don’t be shy, come on down and take a dive
Bring your lover, bring your friend, where the fun will never end

Lie

Lie
(written by: Ruben Estevez / Brad Ramsey / Jason Massey)

Verse:
I heard you saw her last night at that dive down in Jamestown
I haven't seen her since the 4th of July
Did you get a chance to talk
Did she mention me at all
Was she there alone or with some other guy

Pre-Chorus:
Well, I'm dying to know but I'm scared of the truth
So before you say a word
Consider what this heart's been through, and

Chorus:
Lie
Don't tell me that she looked amazing
Just Lie
If she's with someone else I just can't take it
Tell me she looked sad and lonely
Tell me she's been missing me like crazy
Yeah, just look me in the eye and lie

Verse:
Was she over by the jukebox playing songs we used to dance to
Staring at the door sipping Maker’s on the rocks
Did she ask you where I’ve been
Was she hoping I’d walk in
Just take her by the hand and pick up right where we left off

Pre-Chorus:
Well, I'm dying to know but I'm scared of the truth
So before you say a word
Consider what this heart's been through, and

(repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
‘Cause I can’t throw away the dreams we shared
I’ve tried reaching out but she don’t care, it’s pretty clear
But I ain’t ready to let go, so

Last chorus:
Lie
Don't tell me that she looked amazing
Just Lie
Yeah, if she's with someone else then
Lie
Don't tell me that she looked amazing
Just Lie
If she's with someone else I just can't take it
Tell me she looked sad and lonely
Tell me she's been missing me like crazy
Yeah, just look me in the eye and lie…and lie

Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light

(written by: Ruben Estevez and Brad Ramsey)

Verse:
Tonite she's packing up that hatchback civic and leaving town
But I can't live my life without her in it - gotta tell her now
Cause I’m tired of laying alone in bed
Thinking of all I should have said
So I'm flying down the Interstate
And I’m praying that it’s not too late
When I reach that dusty gravel drive, Oh God

Chorus:
Let there be light in the window
Let there be shadows on the wall
Let there be songs on the radio
Any sign of life at all
If you could keep her there just a little longer
I’ll try to make things right
(Oh/So) God, Let there be
Let there be light

Verse:
Last week we had it out, she gave that key back and slammed the door
The last thing she said to me was this ain't working anymore
Well I should have chased her down that night
And let her know she’s the love of my life
If I miss my chance and lose her now
This could be my darkest hour
So when I reach that dusty gravel drive, Oh God

Solo / Bridge:
I’m going to tell her she’s my southern sun and my sweet northern star
and the perfect ending to everyday lying there in my arms, so
