The One 04:08
There’s a star out in the sky, and I’m wishing hard and trying to get right I think it’s calling me And I have never been the kind who lives on hope but I am flying tonight I think I’m finally where I want to be Dead end lovers let you down Some time gets lost but love can still be found CHORUS Is this The One, that I’ve been waiting for all my life Is this The One, I’ve only heard about Is this The One, that I’ve been holding down in my heart Is this The One, that I’ve been waiting on People come and people go, but I am here and I am full-on alive I’m feeling everything And right now in the story, is the time to make or break or take a chance What else am I waiting for A thousand lovers let you down So much noise but no pure sound
I used to think that I was rolling easy All I could do to keep my feet on the ground I used to stare up at the stars at night I used to think that I was heaven bound But now some days are like a long bad movie But sometimes they’re like a quick hot-shot Sometimes it’s like they hand it to me Sometimes I’ve got to take what I’ve got So I say, have a little fun when you think you can Live hard in the moment, And don’t dare forget your friends Chorus So come on we’re going down, down, down Down to the river at night Just to listen to the sounds, sounds, sounds And run out in the wild moonlight ‘Cause this world is spinning ‘round and ‘round So roll the dice and hold on tight I just know my life’s where you are And it’s been so good, so far They say sometimes that you eat the bear, And sometimes they say that the bear eats you Seems like they’re always saying something But, man I think the part about the bear is true So spread a little kindness whenever you can And if you do you know it will come back to you again Chorus Try to fall in love when you think you can And if you get your heart broke jump back in and love again Chorus Some days I sit and thank the lord, For these friends and this place that I’ve found Some days it’s like I just need more And some days I just curse this town Some days I’m on a backed up black top Sometimes I’m on the open road Sometimes I try to be what I’m not, Sometimes it’s like I broke the mold
Been in love a couple times Enough to know about how bright that light can shine And I have seen love ripped away And I have learned to trade tomorrow for today I’ve been down, but I won’t stay down anymore And if the spirit knocks, I’ll throw open my door Chorus And I will open up my heart And make another brand new start, don’t need to run away And I will open up my mind And leave the pain of loss behind, live through another day And I don’t know where or when But I believe I will love again Brother, it ain’t worth a dime To save a little pride, and leave the one you love behind But there are two things in a soul And one wants to settle down, and one is always ready to roll I’ve been broke, but I ain’t broke down anymore And if the spirit knocks, I’ll throw open my door Chorus
Forty Years 04:33
Forty years and big dreams ago Back when the world was turning slow Back when everything was so clear A young man with his whole life coming on Wasn’t scared of the right turn or the wrong one Had the King-Hell run around here Chorus Now I ain’t gonna tell you if I’ve been broken But you might see it if you look in my eyes And sometimes living on heart and hoping Can be harder than you realize And I guess if you’re counting, that I have lost more than I’ve found But I still hold my head up in this town Every morning I wake up around here Day after day, year after year And I think of all that might have been But if just a few of a young man’s dreams come true They’re worth dreaming, and I still dream of you And I’d do it all over again Chorus You live your life out on your sleeve, and everybody’s looking to see But I don’t owe any answers to you, if you ain’t my God and you ain’t me Chorus … and tonight I’ll raise my glass up in this town Forty years and big dreams ago
