YESTERDAY'S MAKEUP

Written By: sunny

V.1
i don't know what drove me
into his cold arms
it wasn't his money
it wasn't his charms
it wasn't a promise
of love in the air
it wasn't to please him
i just didn't care

CHORUS
i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
and last night's reget
the tears they keep falling
they haven't stopped yet
he knows i don't love him
but he'll take what he gets
i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
and last night's regret

V.2
the tears on my pillow
have their own tale to tell
of promises broken
of nights spent in hell
with strangers who play me
like a broken guitar
then leave me to wonder
how i fell so damn far

CHORUS
i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
and last night's reget
the tears they keep falling
they haven't stopped yet
he knows i don't love him
but he'll take what he gets
i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
and last night's regret

V.3
i've tried and i've tried
to keep love away
whenever it finds me
it never will stay
so i've given up searching
for a heart dear to mine
that's one thing i'm certain
i never will find

CHORUS
i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
and last night's reget
the tears they keep falling
they haven't stopped yet
he knows i don't love him
but he'll take what he gets
i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
and last night's regret

i'm wearing yesterday's makeup
yesterday's makeup
yesterday's makeup
and last night's regret

SIXTY TIMES A MINUTE

Written By: sunny

v.1
i understand you had to go,
and i don't blame you for leavin'.
you made the choice you had to make,
but it don't stop me from grievin'.
if the times were diff'rent,
we might have found a way
to hold on to the love we shared.
now ev'ry minute makes me pay.

chorus
i miss you sixty times a minute,
from sunup to sundown.
and when the night comes creepin',
it's you i want around.
there's not a time i'm dreamin'
that doesn't have you in it.
do i ever think of you?
sixty times a minute.

v.2
the life i live don't suit me.
i take it day by day.
ev'ry hour holds mem'ries of
the love you took away.
and even in the ev'nin'
ev'ry shadow bears your name.
my tears should wash away the hurt,
but ev'ry mornin' feels the same.

chorus
i miss you sixty times a minute,
from sunup to sundown.
and when the night comes creepin'
it's you i want around.
there's not a time i'm dreamin'
that doesn't have you in it.
do i ever think of you?
sixty times a minute.

bridge
time will never stop the clock from tickin'.
my heart's worn out from keepin' the beat.
yours never stopped, you just stopped tryin'.
how can you give up a love so sweet?

v.3
you say you're havin' a grand ol' time,
and a lot of folks believe you.
but me, i know you better.
you wear a mask that i can see through.
hard workin' days and lonely nights
are written on your face.
your mask don't hide the emptiness inside
or the love you can't replace.

chorus
i miss you sixty times a minute,
from sunup to sundown.
and when the night comes creepin'
it's you i want around.
there's not a time i'm dreamin'
that doesn't have you in it.
do i ever think of you?
sixty times a minute.

oh, darlin', do i ever think of you?
only sixty times a minute.

LIBERTY STREET

Written By: sunny

there's a

G C G C G
house for sale on liberty street; fresh coat of paint and the yard's kept neat
G C G C G
room for a family, make your dreams com-plete; house for sale on liberty street

G C G C G

built by a couple back in twenty nine, he was a doctor; they did just fine
G C G C G
raise two kids here, then they passed it down; come on over, let me show you a-round

G C G C G
their daughter married, the house went to her; her man kept her in diamonds and furs
G C G C G
he had a heart attack at forty three; don't you love that big shade tree?

G C G C G
her son came home, then times got hard; put in a wood stove, grew crops in the yard
G C G C G
he scrimped and saved, managed to hang on; imagine summers on this big, green lawn

G C G C G
his wife and daughter lived here twenty more years; took out a mortgage, but jobs disap-peared
G C G C G
with payments due, the bank took it a-way; picture your kids on that swing some-day

G C G C G
sure, money's tight, but that's the best time to buy; you know the value will go sky high
G C G C G
a great investment, only ten percent down; if this won't suit you there's more all over town
C G C G C G
all over town; all over town; all over town...

there's a
G C G C G
house for sale on liberty street; fresh coat of paint and the yard's kept neat

I PLAY FOR KEEPS

Written By: sunny

1.
I see you over there, wearing that smile.
I know you're thinkin' I might just be your style.
You tell the waitress to send over a drink,
to make sure I'll stay, and give you more time to think.
Mister, I'm not gonna try and shoot you down,
but this lady's got both feet on the ground.
And, while you're thinkin', here's some thoughts of mine own.
You're gonna want to know before you take me home.
===========================
Chorus
All this foolin' around, well, it ain't for me.
If it's games you want, you better let me be,
or be prepared to play by my rules.
I'm tired of gamblin' with jesters and fools.
Put your heart on the line and roll the dice.
But I'm warnin' you right now: I play for keeps.
===========================
2.
I'm not lookin' to have a little fun.
I've been there, my friend; that time's over and done.
I want somebody who treats me right.
Who can love me even when we're havin' a fight.
You won't find me walkin' out the door,
leaving you there, with your heart on the floor.
And I need a man who’s gonna stick it out, too,
when makin’ up with me is hard to do.
===========================
Ch.
All this foolin' around, well, it ain't for me.
If it's games you want, then let me be.
Yes, I'm gonna cry when the tears are real.
And I need you to tell me how you really feel.
So, put your heart on the line and roll the dice.
I'm just warnin' you, mister: I play for keeps.
===========================
Instrumental bridge
===========================
3.
Don't stand there staring, honey, don't play dumb.
The scotch may be old but the night is still young.
You don't need a line; I've heard 'em all before.
And if you just want a playmate, then head for the door.
Or you can let me in, open your heart.
Don't try to be cool; don't play a part.
Why don't you pull up a chair, and we can talk this out.
We're not kids anymore; we know what life is about.
===========================
Ch.
All this foolin' around, well, it ain't for me.
If it's games you want, then let me be.
A lifetime of lovin's as good as it gets.
But it takes a real man to place that bet.
Put your heart on the line and roll the dice.
Just remember, baby: I play for keeps.
