Well Bill loved Mary, all of his life
He'd say without her love, he'd never get by
And I believed him - you could see it in his eyes
On the day she lost her battle, it didn't take long
Til he was layin right beside her, now he'll never be alone
There's 60 years of love - underneath that stone

There's a certain kind of emptiness that never seems to heal
That's when I feel -

Like Bill without Mary, crops without rain
Like a lonely cemetery down an old country lane
Like a newborn baby cryin' cause she wants to be carried
Sometimes I feel - like Bill without Mary

Some say it's a weakness, some call it a curse
I say it's just like dyin', but a little bit worse
Cause you can still feel the pain - you can feel all the hurt.
When you gotta have somethin more than life itself
and nobody hears ya when your cryin out for help
and you just can't believe - what you're doin' to yourself.

Don't know why I do what I do and probably never will
Guess sometimes I feel

Like Bill without Mary, crops without rain
Like a lonely cemetery down an old country lane
Like a newborn baby cryin' cause she wants to be carried
Sometimes I feel - like Bill without Mary


Late at night when I'm alone and lying wide awake
I curse the emptiness I know, but I pray the good things never change
Like how Bill loved Mary all of his life, he'd say without her love he'd
Never get by…) Cos' Bill without Mary…..repeats chorus….cause

You Can Hold Me to That

Written By: Melissa Bollea and Scott Jarman

I’m not the kind to compromise the truth
Especially when it comes down, to the way I feel for you
You know that I’m a man of my word
Forever, is what you deserve

YOU CAN HOLD ME TO THAT, I won’t let you down
Good times and bad, I’ll be around
If you ever feel all alone, we can put some soft music on
And YOU CAN HOLD ME TO THAT

A promise, is something I keep
And girl I’m gonna prove it, as I slip on this ring
I’ll spend the rest of my life
Just to see the look in your eyes

CHORUS

Girl I know, there’s no guarantees,
But in you, I see my dreams…..

CHORUS

If you ever feel all alone, we can put some soft music on
And YOU CAN HOLD ME TO THAT

I still smell grandma's cobbler coolin' on the stove;
I can hear my grandpa cussin 'at out neighbor’s pesky dog.

I can feel that cool water on my toes in the creek;
I remember Momma wavin' and the taste of the tear rollin' down my cheek

There's something bout leavin' that never leaves;
You can't out run your history;
There's no way to hide it, you're gonna find it;
Somewhere in your Memory.
There's something 'bout leaving - That never leaves

When I hear the name Rebecca, I think about the day;
We talked bout havin babies n how that'd be our girls name.

If only we hadn't broke up that night on the bridge;
Maybe I could cross it without think bout the life we could have lived.

CHORUS

So, if your bags packed, keys in your hand;
and you think you're ready to go

Nothing can stop you, but I'm here to tell you;
take it from a man who knows

CHORUS

I Git the Green Light

Stop Light; Fifth and Main.
Waitin’ for the light to change.
He pulls up in an Escalade;

And winks at my baby.

That pretty boy want to play some games.
My Corvette feels like playin’
Straight ahead two clear lanes;

It’s gonna get crazy.

Music’s up; Top pulled down;
I can feel my heart pound.
Gonna be a fun fun ride
There it goes…..

I GOT THE GREEN LIGHT

That Pretty boy ate my dust;
Now it’s just the two of us.
We pulled off after dusk..

In the middle of nowhere.

She smiles; bites her lip.
Curls her hair with her fingertip.
I know where she’s goin’; with this.

And I’m goin’ with her.

REPEAT CHORUS

I like this; She likes this;
The engine’s smoking’ We’re Pickin’ up speed

REPEAT CHORUS

IS SHE A STROLL ON A SUNDAY MORNIN’
A RACE ON A FRIDAY NITE
IS SHE A LONG STRETCH LIMOUSINE
OR A LATE NITE HARLEY RIDE

NO YOU CAIN’T TELL BY LOOKIN’
NO MATTER HOW YOU TRY
AIN’T NO WAY OF KNOWIN’
TILL YOU GET INSIDE

AND TAKE THAT DRIVE
NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO
TAKE THAT DRIVE
DOWN EVERY HIDDEN ROAD
YOU CAINT SIT AROUND AND WAIT FOR YOUR WHOLE LIFE
TO TAKE THAT DRIVE..

SHE’S THAT WOMAN AT THE COUNTER
SHE’S THE GIRL WHO TAKES YOUR CALL
WELL SHE’S GOT IT ALL TOGETHER
BUT EVEN WHEN SHE’S WRONG
MAN YOU CAINT’ TELL BY LOOKIN
NO MATTER HOW YOU TRY
SHE’S RUNNIN ON AMBITION
GOT A FIRE IN HER EYE.…

SHE’S GOT THAT DRIVE
NO MATTER WHERE SHE GOES
GOT THAT DRIVE
SHE TAKES EVERY HIDDEN ROAD
SHE WON’T SIT AROUND AND WAIT FOR HER WHOLE LIFE
SHE’S GOT THAT DRIVE

YOU CAN SIT AND TALK ABOUT ALL THE THINGS YOU WANNA DO
AINT’ NOTHIN GONNA HAPPEN, UNTIL YOU MAKE A MOVE….

AND TAKE THAT DRIVE, NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO.
TAKE THAT DRIVE DOWN EVERY HIDDEN ROAD
DON’T SIT AROUND AND WAIT FOR YOUR WHOLE LIFE
TO TAKE THAT DRIVE…
