Emerson Drive Love Hangover

Some find their daemons in the bottom of the bottle in their hand

But in the morning they still wake up with the truth in their bed

Girl, you’re like a drink, that burns going down

Hate what you do to me, but I need you right now

A tall glass of water might stop the pounding in my head

Or I could hide under the covers, and just sleep it off instead

If I had too much to drink, that’s just what I’d do

But the problem is I’m sober

Trying to find a way to get over the pain

Of this love hangover

Some days are harder than the rest, like a habit I can’t break

I should know better than to do this to myself, I always say

Cause you’re no good for me, I know that much is true

When the morning comes, I’ll still be loving you

A tall glass of water might stop the pounding in my head

Or I could hide under the covers, and just sleep it off instead

If I had too much to drink, that’s just what I’d do

But the problem is I’m sober

Trying to find a way to get over the pain

Of this love hangover

A tall glass of water might stop the pounding in my head

Or I could hide under the covers, and just sleep it off instead

If I had too much to drink, that’s just what I’d do

But the problem is I’m sober

Trying to find a way to get over the pain

Of this love hangover

Love hangover

Love hangover

Emerson Drive Still Got Yesterday

She was the love of my life

Back in ’95

We hardly spent a day or night apart

We were victims of a lonely heart

And I remember that day

It all went away

Yeah, when I think about it even now

I find a reason to smile somehow

[Chorus]

‘Cause I’ve still got yesterday

Runnin’ wild

Yesterday, when I close my eyes

I drift away

Back where I come from

And today might not be fair

And tomorrow may not be there

But I’ve still got yesterday

Zach was the one to hang around

We all used to drive through town

With the girls in his daddy’s car

Said he was gonna be a big league star

But it was rainy one night

And he didn’t see the red light

Now there’s a stone where he used to be

And everybody cries but me

[Chorus]

I’ve heard people say

You learn the future by the past

If it’s any indication

Then I’m looking back

‘Cause I’ve still got yesterday

Runnin’ wild

Yesterday, when I close my eyes

I drift away

Back where I come from

Yesterday, when we had our dreams

Yesterday, loud and free

I steal away and I find that summer sun

Today may not be fair

And tomorrow may not be there

But I’ve still got yesterday

Runnin’ wild

Emerson Drive Countrified Soul

Kick my countrified soul

Well, I heard it on the radio

They’re comin’ back to town

Playin’ at the Wilson County Fair

Put in my forty and some overtime

I think I’m overdue

You can bet your party boots that I’ll be there

For some red-hot, real fast,

Chicken-pickin’ turbo-grass

Aerosmith or Cotton Eyed Joe

A little starlight, moonshine

Down home, party time

Turn it loose and let it go

And kick my countrified soul

The band is a pumpin’

The singer’s got the crowd

Crazy and dancin’ in the aisles

There ain’t nobody sittin’

Got their hands up in the air

There’s a couple shakin’

Like the girls gone wild

For some red-hot, real fast,

Chicken-pickin’ turbo-grass

Aerosmith or Cotton Eyed Joe

A little starlight, moonshine

Down home, party time

Turn it loose and let it go

And kick my countrified

Chicken in the bread pan pickin’ out dough

Mama’s tuned in to the radio

Everybody’s in the backyard, what do ya know

Singin’ Walk This Way to the Cotton Eyed Joe

New York City, Cleveland, Boston

Carolina, L.A., Austin

Doesn’t matter where you’re from

Everybody needs

A little starlight, moonshine

Down home, party time

Turn it loose and let it go

And kick my countrified

Red-hot, real fast,

Chicken-pickin’ turbo-grass

Aerosmith or Cotton Eyed Joe

A little starlight, moonshine

Down home, party time

Turn it loose and let it go

Kick my countrified soul

Kick, kick my countrified soul

Emerson Drive What If?

Boxed in, feel small, four walls closin’ in again

Just like clockwork, ahhhah

On a line, too long, hung out, dryer than the desert sand

And I just don’t feel like

The stars are aligned, the world is mine

The time is right, but what if

Yeah what if that is that

[Chorus:]

One day, the one that you always say

If it never came along

You’d never let it get away

Just like a last dance

There’s never a second chance

To hold on (hold on), so hold on

What if this is that one day

It’s so hard to see dreams you’re building

Crashing down fast just like dominoes, ahhhah

Can’t hide on roof tops from raindrops

So spread your wings, soak it up

Before it gets too late and

It’s easier to quit the game and hide your pain

But what if, yeah what if this is that

[Chorus]

Oh you never know, oh you never know, oh you never know

No you never really know, what if, what if, what if, yeah what if this is that

[Chorus]

Emerson Drive Believe

Five year old Superman

Got a beach towel cape

And he thinks he can

So he takes a dive off the chicken coop

Red behind and a broken foot

Daddy said, “I hope you learned your lesson good”

“Yes sir, next time

I’m gonna wear the Superman boots”

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try

Red rhinestones and a Silvertone

Opry playin’ on the radio

He says, “One day I’m gonna be on that stage”

Spends all his time practicin’

Gets a big break and it all begins

Now he waitin’ in the wings

And Porter’s callin’ out his name

Believe

You can fly, you can sing

Take a leap, spread your wings

Believe

Have a little faith, little trust

Little luck, little love and dream

Whatever you want but you’ve gotta believe

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try

Her momma said

It’s wastin’ tips in an all night diner

Babies, boys and black eye liner

It’s a woman’s life, it ain’t rocket science

But she set her sight on the Ivy League

Got a full free ride and her PhD

Now she’s down in Houston

And she’s one of NASA’s finest

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try

He’s 91, she’s 85

Said, “By God, we’re still alive

Let’s go steppin’ out before we cash it’ in”

Take the Cadillac down to the Broken Spoke

Do the ole two step or cotton eyed joe

Just like the South, they’re gonna rise again

Believe

You can fly, you can sing

Take a leap, spread your wings

Believe

Have a little faith, little trust

Little luck, little love and dream

Whatever you want but you’ve gotta believe

Good things come to those who will believe

So believe

You can fly, give it a try, you’re gonna see

Whatever you want, whatever you dream

If you believe

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try

Go on, give it a try, ohh

You can fly, you can sing

Take a leap, spread your wings

Believe

Go on, give it a try

You can fly, you can dance

Take a leap, take a chance

Believe

Go on, give it a try

You can fly, you can sing

Take a leap, spread your wings

Believe

Go on, give it a try

You can fly, you can dance

Take a leap, take a chance

Believe

Go on, give it a try

Emerson Drive Running Back To You

Haven’t been myself these days

Tryin’ to see through a deep blue haze

Wonder if my live will ever be the same

And I know that giving in

Is easier that starting over again

But don’t expect to hear me call your name

[Chorus:]

I’ll shout at the walls, hold my breath till I fall

But it won’t get the better of me

I’ll live with the pain till all that remains is a memory

Where you used to be

Go nowhere fast with my foot on the gas

Howling at the moon

But I won’t come running on back to you

I bet you think I’m drinking too much

Spend every moment longing for your touch

That I’m in little bitty pieces on the floor

I made up my mind this’d be the last time

And you held me to my word

The night you walked our future out that door

[Chorus]

Don’t ask me where we went wrong

You were weak, baby, now I must be strong

Yeah

I’ll shout at the walls, hold my breath till I fall

But it won’t get the better of me

I’ll live with the pain till all that remains is a memory

Where you used to be

I won’t back down, when you come back around

No matter what you do

But i won’t come running on back to you

No it won’t get the better of me

I’ll live with the pain till all that remains is a memory

Where you used to be

Go nowhere fast with my foot on the gas

Howling at the moon

But I won’t come running on back to you

Emerson Drive You’re Like Coming Home

Ridin’ restless under the broken sky

A weary trav’ler somethin’ missing inside

Always lookin’ for a reason

To turn around

Desperate for a little peace of mind

Just a little of what I left behind

Well I’ve found it now

You’re comin’ home

You’re like Sunday mornin’

Pleasin’ my eyes

You’re a mid-summer’s dream under a star-soaked sky

That peaceful easy feelin’

At the end of a long, long road

You’re like comin’ home

You’re like comin’ home

You’re like comin’ home

Go ahead and let your hair fall down

This wanderlust, it’s gone now

Here in your arms I’m safe from the world again

These are the days that can’t be erased

Baby there isn’t a better place

You’re like heaven

You’re like comin’ home

You’re like Sunday mornin’

PLeasin’ my eyes

You’re a mid-summer’s dream under a star-soaked sky

That peaceful easy feelin’

At the end of a long, long road

You’re like comin’ home

Oh, you’re that innocence

That serenity

That long part of me

You’re like Sunday mornin’

Pleasin’ my eyes

You’re a mid-summer’s dream under a star-soaked sky

That peaceful easy feelin’

At the end of a long, long road

You’re like Sunday mornin’

Pleasin’ my eyes

You’re a midsummer’s dream under a star-soaked sky

That peaceful easy feelin’

At the end of a long, long road

You’re like comin’ home

Oh you’re like comin’ home

Emerson Drive She Always Gets What She Wants

She wants to get dressed up and dance out on the edge

Knock on my door and stumble to my bed.

She loves to kick me out and pull me back again

She’s got a way of messing with my head.

She knows I can’t deny her soul

She holds my heart to the flame.

She smiles and I’m reminded that

I’ve got no one else to blame.

She doesn’t know it hurts

She only knows she’s beautiful

It’s not her fault, I tell myself

To just let go of her

Every time I say, “I’ll never fall again”

Well she comes around and I’m right back in the hurt

Yeah she always gets what she wants, whoa.

She needs to feel the eyes of envy on her skin

She don’t ever tell me where she’s been.

She hates it when I act like I don’t give a damn

She turns it on and I’m right back in her hands.

She knows I can’t deny her soul

She holds my heart to the flame.

She smiles and I’m reminded that

I’ve got no one else to blame.

She doesn’t know it hurts

She only knows she’s beautiful

It’s not her fault, I tell myself

To just let go of her

Every time I say, “I’ll never fall again”

Well she comes around and I’m right back in the hurt

Yeah she always gets what she wants,

She always gets what she wants!

She knows I can’t deny her soul

She holds my heart to the flame.

She smiles and I’m reminded that

I’ve got no one else to blame.

She doesn’t know it hurts

She only knows she’s beautiful

It’s not her fault

I tell myself to just let go!

Every time I say, “I’ll never fall again”

Well she comes around and I’m right back in the hurt.

Yeah she always gets what she wants

She always gets what she wants.

Yeah she always gets what she wants.

Emerson Drive That Kind Of Beautiful

Have you ever been flyin’ down a long country road

With the windows open and the sun rushin’ in

Have you ever sat starin’ at shoreline all night

Don’t wanna blink your eyes thinkin’ man this is it

And the last thing you think about is leavin

You cant believe you’re seein’ what you’re seein

Shes that kind of stop you right in your tracks

Knock you out just like that somethin’ you just cant explain

That kind of blows your mind every time

That you thought you’d never find shes that kind

That kind of beautiful

Shes like that feelin’ you get on a Sunday

Forgiveness when you need it the most

Like that little girl singing every single word

With a big smile in the front row

Wanna stand so close you can feel it

Yeah you’re wishin’ that the whole world could see it

Shes that kind of stop you right in your tracks

Knock you out just like that somethin’ you just cant explain

That kind of blows your mind every time

That you thought you’d never find shes that kind

That kind of beautiful

Once you’ve held on you wont remember where you’ve been

Just like a song you want to sing again and again

Shes that kind of stop you right in your tracks

Knock you out just like that somethin’ you just can’t explain

That kind of blows your mind every time

That you thought you’d never find she’s that kind

That kind of beautiful

Emerson Drive Simple Miracles

When I got up this morning you were still asleep

And the rain tapped on my window as if reminding me

To make out a list of every single gift

That you give me every day

[Chorus]

It’s the dream that never dies

It’s the wonder in your eyes

It’s the magic in your touch

Every star and every wish

I wake each day and live

A life that’s filled with simple miracles

Sometimes in the madness I tend to forget

And I take your love for granted when I should

Hold you close instead

But let me say right now so there is no doubt

All the things you are to me

[Chorus]

And as time goes by the more that I find

That my life is in much bigger hands than mine

[Chorus]
