Court Yard Hounds Watch Your Step

You’re the guy that starts a fire

And then you walk away

It’s so like you to change the rules

Just when I wanna play

But there are pitfalls, deep dark holes

A mine that you can’t see

I’m just a girl

To change your world

Yeah you could fall for me

Ooh… Once you start falling down, you’re way down, and it’s all over now

Ooh… You just might just fall in love

You better watch your step

In the bar we sit and talk

But you’re not making sense

You’re tongue tied, be both know why

I scare you half to death

‘Cause I’m a trip wire, make you walk on fire

Balance on the

Who knew I’d sneak up on you

And push you off the ledge

Ooh… and once you start falling you’re down, you’re way down, and it’s all over now

Ooh… You might just fall in love with me

You better watch your step, you better watch your step

It’s a crash site, up all night

Making all the noise

I chalk it up to sewin’ oats

And boys will be boys

But deep down, way deep down

You want someone to care

When the dust settles turn around

You know that I’ll be there

Ooh… Once you start falling you’re down, you’re way down, and it’s all over now

Ooh… Once you start falling you’re down, you’re way down, and it’s all over now

Ooh… You might just fall in love with me

You better watch your step

You better watch your step

You better watch your step

You better watch your step

Court Yard Hounds Gets You Down

When life gets you down

What you gonna do?

[x2]

Are you gonna stick your head in the sand?

Are you gonna turn and run just like that?

Are you gonna take a fall or a stand today?

When hearts break you down

What you gonna do?

[x2]

Are you gonna pitch a fight and cry?

Are you gonna beg the reasons why?

Are you gonna say and do what’s wrong or right?

Well you could always love me

Yeah you can always love me

Yeah you could always love me

And if it don’t feel right

At least you tried

When I let you down

What you gonna do?

[x2]

Are you gonna slip away in the night?

Are you gonna hold the babies tight?

Are you gonna give me more of your maybes and mights?

Well you can always love me

You could always love me x2

And if it don’t feel right

At least you tried

You could always love me

And if it don’t feel right

At least you tried

But did you try?

Court Yard Hounds It Didn’t Make A Sound

When I called, I heard you say, “Tell her I’m out.”

And don’t you know I’m smart enough to figure you out?

You said, “Come on we need to talk, let’s go for a ride.”

But you don’t have to say a thing, I can read your mind

I hear the song on the radio playing loud

I might forever hear the words you thought would let me down

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

It didn’t make a sound

We sat up all night while you apologized

And I think you were surprised to see me smile

But all I heard was the sound of the freedom bells ringin’

And I bet you thought I would be breakin’ down

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

It didn’t make a sound

It didn’t make a sound

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

Hey, yeah, yeah, but my heart breakin’

It never made a sound

It didn’t make a sound

It didn’t make a sound

It never made a sound

Go ahead and leave me, darlin’

You won’t ever see me cryin’

You’ll never hear my heart breakin’

It didn’t make a sound

It didn’t make a sound

It never made a sound

Court Yard Hounds Delight

Yeah, we have arrived

Animation, we come to life

Celebration of something so right

The creation in perfect time

Of something new under the sun

Court Yard Hounds Straw Cage

Lyin’ in bed, it’s a Saturday

So hard to feel

Cold sheets stuffed between my legs

This time it’s real

Oh, what have I done?

Babe, I was wrong

What time did you leave last night?

Where did you go? Where did you stay?

Here in the morning light

Is it gone or just time away?

I know I was wrong

Hey, I know I was wrong

Oh, the things I said but didn’t mean

I was outside myself, it wasn’t me

How to make you believe?

I know I was wrong

Stare at the food on my plate

And lose track of time, where’s the sun?

I’d call and I’d find those words to say

But I’m afraid they’re already gone

Babe, I was wrong

Hey, you’re already gone

Oh, the things I said but didn’t mean

I was outside myself, it wasn’t me

How to make you believe?

I know I was wrong

I know I was wrong

Court Yard Hounds Fairytale

Every girl wants the fairytale

I guess I do too

We’re restless, we’re young

With so much to prove

You ask me to wait

But wait I won’t do

‘Cause the time I’ve been wasting

I could be spending with you

Take me… we’ll run away

Out of this town ’til it fades

And they’ll say we’re wrong

But with you I’m alright either way

Money can burn

And money can talk

But it’s love that makes the girl

Get up and walk

Ah, all I want’s my turn

Yeah, I could be happy just livin’ to learn

So take me… we’ll run away

Out of this town ’til it fades

And they’ll say we’re wrong

But with you I’m alright either way

Take me… we’ll run away

Out of this town ’til it fades

And they’ll say we’re wrong

But with you I’m alright either way…

We’ll run away

I can’t take this town one more day

And they’ll say we’re wrong

But with you I’m alright either way

Every girl wants the fairytale

I guess I do too

Court Yard Hounds Then Again

He’d drive a mint green van and watch the Mexicans scatter

Be the first to admit he thought it was funny as hell

Now he’s taken to flippin’ off hippies at the river

Yeah, I never really liked him but I would never tell

Then again, I never did understand me

But then again, I never did understand me

I have bitten my tongue ’til I can taste the blood

And I scream ‘uncle’ when you twist my arm

I could say I was just too young

But I haven’t yet learned to trust my bleeding heart

But then again, I never did understand me

But then again, I never did understand me

And just to keep the peace and quiet

I’d forfeit my peace of mind

Then again, I never did understand me

Come for me and I’ll be your canary

And stay ’til then end when it’s bad for my health

Yeah, I can can forgive every Tom, Dick, or Harry

But when it comes down to me

I can’t forgive myself

But then again, I never did understand me

But then again, I never did understand me

Just to keep the peace and quiet

I’d forfeit my peace of mind

Then again, I never did understand me

I lift myself up for you to wear me down

And I do it every day as crazy as it seems

It’s such a little thing like when I catch my reflection

I think, ‘Girl don’t you know you shouldn’t wear those jeans?’

But then again, I never did understand me

But then again, I never did understand me

And just to keep the peace and quiet

I’d forfeit my peace of mind

Then again, I never did understand…

But then again, I never did understand…

But then again, I never did understand me

But then again, I never did understand me

Court Yard Hounds Aimless Upward

Part of me is a climbing vine

A ball of nerves like a ball of twine

Laws of love and gravity

We are seeds with promises to keep

Part of me is a setting sun

In my skin and in my lungs

Almost wholly mystery

We are seeds with promises to keep

My eyes are wide

Aimless upward I will rise and

I’ll be fine to take my time

It’s a gift to see the stormy skies

But too much rain and the waters rise

I’ve got steady hands when my roots are deep

We are seeds with promises to keep

My eyes are wide

Aimless upward I will rise and

I’ll be fine to take my time

Take my time

We fool ourselves with our happy tunes

Convinced the beauty is in the bloom

Can I let go of my vanity

We are seeds with promises to keep

My eyes are wide

Aimless upward I will rise and

I’ll be fine to take my time

And eyes are wide

Aimless upward and I will rise and

I’ll be fine and take my time

Yes, I’ll take my time

Court Yard Hounds The Coast

I’m gonna head down to the coast

Where nothin’ ever seems to matter

You know I love it there the most

When every piece of my world gets scattered

Blue skies, green water

White birds in the air

Brown skin, blue collar

And the wind blowin’ in my hair

And I wrote you this little note

And I never even sent the letter

But I still want you to know

I found a place I feel a whole lot better with…

Blue skies, green water

White birds in the air

Brown skin, blue collar

And the wind blowin’ in my hair

Blue skies, green water

White birds in the air

Brown skin, blue collar

And the wind blowin’ in my hair

I’m gonna leave my old winter coat

And I won’t even need a sweater

I’m gonna sit out on a boat

‘Cause it’s time for some sunny weather and…

Blue skies, green water

White birds in the air

Brown skin, blue collar

And the wind blowin’ in my hair

In my hair…

Blue sky, green water

White birds in the air

Brown skin, blue collar

And the wind blowin’ in my hair

And the wind blowin’ in my hair
