Dobie Gray Let Go

Moonlight and roses are the goin’ things.

Champagne, a little love and a wedding ring!

And everytime she leaves,

It’s gonna break your heart.

It’s happened before.

Don’t you come to me.

I don’t want no part.

Let go.

It ain’t worth it if it hurts you.

Let go.

You don’t need it if she don’t care.

Like a good ol’ wine you rock ‘n roll,

If it feels real good,

Let it move your soul,

But if it hurts to say her name,

You better let go.

First time the both of you makes for urgent love,

Gives the feel that it’s all unreal. It’s from up above.

You tell her all your secret dreams

When you call her on the phone,

But you’re terrified there’ll be a time

When she won’t be alone.

Let go.

You don’t need it if hurts you.

Let go.

You don’t need it if she don’t care.

Like a good ol’ wine you rock ‘n roll,

If it feels real good,

Let it move your soul,

But if it hurts to say her name,

You better let go.

Walk away, leave well alone, you know you should.

To be in love can be just as bad as it can be good.

The counts of your best friends ain’t wise,

But you sure need to see,

You gotta know the beat before you sing the song

And the sing goes for me.

Let go.

It ain’t worth it if it hurts you.

Let go.

You don’t need it if she don’t care.

Like a good ol’ wine you rock ‘n roll,

If it feels real good,

Let it move your soul,

But if it hurts to say her name,

You better let go.

Yes if it hurts to say her name

You better let go.

Let go.

Dobie Gray I’m Only Speaking My Heart

I can speak the lines of a poet

saying all the right things

at just the right time

I think love says more when you show it

More than all the words that I can’t find

but three words are all I need

when it comes to you and me

I’m only speaking my heart

let me begin with a kiss in the dark

and if you listen real close

you’ll hear I love you

each time I touch you

I’m only speaking my heart

Please don’t think I take you for granted

just because sometimes I’m a man of few words

deep inside I’m a hopeless romantic

hoping what I feel won’t go unheard

sometimes love at its best is easier done than said

I’m only speaking my heart

let me begin with a kiss in the dark

and if you listen real close

you’ll hear I love you

each time I touch you

I’m only speaking my heart

If something tells you you’re made for me

I’m holding you this way

if you sense that I’m right where I wanna be

that’s what I’m trying to say

And if you listen real close

you’ll hear I love you each time I touch you

I’m only speaking my heart

And if you listen real close, you’ll hear I love you

each time I touch you

I’m only speaking my heart.

Dobie Gray Good Old Song

All the world is a room and the room is painted blue

You look at me and I look at you

We need our song to pull us through

But the melody is changing and the words all slip away

And we cannot sing our good old song

Like we could in the good old days

This leavin’ you sure ain’t easy

I think of the summer nights we knew

I remember the way you used to please me

But the time has come us now to go our separate ways

‘Cause we cannot sing our good old song

Like we could in the good old days

Don’t you wanna have your chance?

Don’t you wanna try a new romance?

Oh, and I know you will when the time is right

And you will dance on the highest hill in the night

Tonight I want to hold you close

I wanna feel you near me one more time

It’s too bad it’s sad but that’s, it’s how it goes

And when your friends all come an ask you

Why your lover went away?

Just say that we could not sing our good old song

Like we could in the good old days

Like we could in the good old days

Oh, we could not sing our good old song

Like we could in the good old days

We couldn’t make it, no

No, we couldn’t take it any more

We could not sing our good old song

Like we could in the good old days

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

We could not sing our good old song

Like we could in the good old days

Couldn’t take the time couldn’t make it right

Dobie Gray Loving Arms

If you could see me now

The one who said he rather roll away

The one who said he rather be alone

If you could only see me now

If I could hold you now

Just for one moment if could really make you mine

Just for a while turn the hands of time

If you could only hold you now

I’ve been too long in the rain, too long in the wind

Taking any comfort that I can

Looking back and longing for the freedom from of chains

Lying in your loving arms again

If you could hear me now

Singing somewhere through the lonely night

Dreaming of the arms that held me tight

If you could only hear me now

I’ve been too long in the rain, too long in the wind

Taking any comfort that I can

Yes I’m Looking back and longing for the freedom from of chains

And lying in your loving arms again

I can almost feel your loving arms again

Dobie Gray There’s A Honky Tonk Angel

When was the last time you kissed me

And I don’t mean a touch now and then

It’s been a long time since you felt like my woman

And even longer since I felt like your man

So tell me if you think it’s over

And I’ll leave it up to you how it ends

‘Cause if you don’t want the love I can give you

Well, there’s a honky tonk angel who will take me back in

You never look at me and say, “I love you”

How much more do you think I can stand?

Oh, there’s an old friend out there and she’s waiting

Lord, she’s happy just holding my hand

So tell me if you think it’s over

And I’ll leave it up to you how it ends

‘Cause if you don’t want the love I can give you

Well, there’s a honky tonk angel who will take me back in

Yes, there’s a honky tonk angel who will take me back in

Dobie Gray That’s One To Grow On

True devotion, sweet emotions

Have spent the night out in the rain

Morning sunshine will make it better

light up the pleasure, burn out the pain

That’s one to grow on

Ain’t no reason we can go on trying

’til we get it right

keep hanging in there

who’s to say we can’t begin where

We left it all

on a stormy night.

Hold me tight love, and

Don’t lose sight of

the simple fact that my love is yours

Yes and, these few times

when our dues ain’t made up

The love is laid up

We got the cure

That’s one to grow on

Ain’t no reason we can go on trying

’til we get it right

keep hanging in there

who’s to say we can’t begin where

We left it all

on a stormy night

That’s one to grow on

Ain’t no reason we can go on trying

’til we get it right

keep hanging in there

who’s to say we can’t begin where

We left it all

on a stormy night

That’s one to grow on

Ain’t no reason we can go on trying

’til we get it right

keep hanging in there

who’s to say we can’t begin where

We left it all

on a stormy night
