Lonestar Runnin’ Away With My Heart

Hey Buddy can you get me some faster wheels

I got a heartache nippin’ at my heels

I’ll be hurtin’ if she gets a big head start

First that girl stole my attention

Not to mention all my affection

Now she’s running away with my heart

I don’t know where she’s bound

But I aim to be there when the sun goes down

Do a little catchin’ up in the dark

When we’re out there under the moonlight

Even when I’m holdin’ her tight

She’s running away with my heart

No don’t tell me ’bout the speed limit

I’ll go a million miles a minute

Till I run the wheels right off of this car

I know exactly what I’d be losin’

That’s why I’m doin’ what I’m doin’

She’s running away with my heart

I don’t know where she’s bound

But I aim to be there when the sun goes down

Do a little catchin’ up in the dark

When we’re out there under the moonlight

Even when I’m holdin’ her tight

She’s running away with my heart

She’s running away with my heart

Lonestar Class Reunion

Well I rolled into town

With the ragtop down

I was looking for that homecoming queen

That three-by-nine lit hotel sign read

Welcome back class of ’83

There were football guys twice their size

Cheerleaders hiding the grey in their hair

The names were the same but the faces had changed

I didn’t recongize anyone there

That used to be us, we used to be cool

With the music cranked up, hanging out after school

That used to be Jill, that used to be Joe

Tell me where in the world did we all go

That used to be us

Oh, that used to be us

I had a drink with some buds

Played a lot of catch up

Danced with my date from the prom

But as hard as I tried until I closed my eyes

Everybody I knew was gone

There was Mr. Finch, he taught English and French

He was dancing with a couple of canes

And that homecoming queen, yeah the girl of my dreams

She didn’t even remember my name

That used to be us, we used to be cool

With the music cranked up, hanging out after school

That used to be Jill, that used to be Joe

Tell me where in the world did we all go

That used to be us

As I stand here and look around

I can’t help but wonder

Who will we be ten years from now

That used to be us, we used to be cool

With the music cranked up, hanging out after school

That used to be Jill, that used to be Joe

Tell me where in the world did we all go

That used to be us

Oh that used to be us

That used to be us

That used to be us

Lonestar What I Miss The Most

I hear the sound of gentle rain

Like teardrops on the windowpane

A priceless smile in a wooden frame beside the bed

I stare at the ceiling and talk to the walls

I lay here alone and imagine it all

As a river of memories rush through my head

I can almost taste your kiss as I think about how much I miss

Your hungry eyes, your satin skin

The sound of your voice whisperin’

The love I feel inside your heart

When you’re wrapped up in my arms so close

That’s what I miss the most

I try to rest but sleep won’t come

My body aches and my mind is numb

Shadows fall as the morning sun begins to rise

Another day without you here

Has it been weeks or has it been years

I find it getting harder to keep track of time

I breath in and I breath out but it’s getting tough to live without

Your hungry eyes, your satin skin

The sound of your voice whisperin’

The love I feel inside your heart

When you’re wrapped up in my arms so close

That’s what I miss the most

What I miss the most

I can almost taste your kiss as I think about how much I miss

Your hungry eyes, your satin skin

The sound of your voice whisperin’

The love I feel inside your heart

When you’re wrapped up in my arms so close

That’s what I miss the most

Lonestar Long Lost Smile

She squeezed the handle, topped the tank off

Pulled out her necklace and kissed the cross

El Paso he waved, horizon off the hood

She’s going through with something

He never thought she would

By now he’s rolling over on his back

He ain’t waking up

Not with all the liquors he’s had

She’ll be halfway to Longview by the time he starts to stir

By the time he opens his eyes she’ll already be a blur

You go girl, get in that Cadillac

There ain’t no lie in looking back

She tore outta that station

Dust and gravel flying

Sideswiped a couple of highway signs

Tore off both mirrors

Something free and wild

Yeah, seems like ages but there’s that smile

That long lost smile

Staring through the windshield

A new look in her eyes

A conscience as clear as the Texas sky

She ran out of patience, out of strength

And out of tears

He ran out of second chances

And now she’s outta here

You go girl, don’t look back

And there ain’t no lie in living like that

She tore outta that station

Dust and gravel flying

Sideswiped a couple of highway signs

Tore off both mirrors

Something free and wild

Yeah, seems like ages but there’s that smile

That long lost smile, tthat long lost smile

Yeah, you go girl, you go girl

Hey, you go girl

You go girl

Lonestar I Miss When

I can still hear my boombox boomin shakin my bedroom walls

Turn it down boy that hair metal noise don’t sound like music at all

I can still see that next door neighbor girl face down in the sun

On her trampoline with that little string of her bikini top undone

[Chorus:]

I miss when time moved slower and too loud sounded good

And work meant pushin’ a mower all over my neighborhood

I miss when a’s and b’s were all I had to worry about

And love was seven minutes in heaven and spinnin’ a bottle around

I can still smell mama’s fried chicken in the kitchen right after church

Every sunday’d be a pickup game

In the yard til somebody got hurt

I can still feel my knees buckle

With the taste of that first kiss

Bubblegum mixed with cherry chapstick and I couldn’t wait to do it again

[Chorus:]

I miss when time moved slower and too loud sounded good

And work meant pushin’ a mower all over my neighborhood

I miss when a’s and b’s were all I had to worry about

And love was seven minutes in heaven and spinnin’ a bottle around

I miss when time moved slower and too loud sounded good

And work meant pushin’ a mower all over my neighborhood

I miss when a’s and b’s were all I had to worry about

And love was seven minutes in heaven and spinnin’ a bottle around

Yeah love was seven minutes in heaven

And spinnin’ a bottle around

Yeah I miss when

Lonestar Don’t Let’s Talk About Lisa

Don’t let’s talk about Lisa

Don’t let’s even start

Let’s leave Lisa out of this one

Lisa broke my heart

Gwendolyn was splendid, but her tendency to spending

Spun a little out of control

Two nights on the town and

My poor bank account was crawling around on the floor

And pretty young Alicia, she could take a piece of your heart

And lead you to the light

Lucy, Melinda, Loretta and Lucinda

We could go on all night but

Don’t let’s talk about Lisa

Don’t let’s even start

Let’s leave Lisa out of this one

Lisa broke my heart

Priscilla was a killer, meaner than Godzilla

But oh what a pretty girl and

Dawn in the dawn with her pom-poms on

She could twirl like a tilt-a-whirl

There’s wonderful women all over the world

I’ve said it again and again

But she whose name must not be spoken

Has it all over all of them so

Don’t let’s talk about Lisa

Don’t let’s even start

Let’s leave Lisa out of this one

Lisa broke my heart

You can talk about the weather

Cotton or leather

And do you think the Beatles shoulda really gotten back together

Talk about the truth

Mantle or Ruth

Fabio, DiMaggio or John Wilkes Boothe

Don’t let’s talk about Lisa

Don’t let’s even start no, no

Don’t let’s talk about Lisa please sir

Lisa broke my heart

Oh Lisa she’s off limits man

Lisa broke my heart

Lisa Lisa Lisa broke my heart

You can talk about Hanson, Marilyn Manson

And do you think they’ll ever have a show down in Branson

Talk about desire, Sosa or McGwire

And is we in the fryin’ pan or is we in the fire

Talk about what’s real and what you really feel

And how’s about those mini skirts on Ally McBeal

Talk about the X-Files, Macaroons and mistrails

And did you ever snag your jacket pocket on a turnstyle

Lonestar You’re Like Comin’ Home

Riding restless under a broken sky

A weary traveler something missing inside

Always looking, for a reason to turn around

Desperate for a little peace of mind

Just a little piece of what I left behind

Well I’ve found it now

You’re like comin’ home

You’re like a Sunday morning

Pleasing 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

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 they can’t be erased

Baby there isn’t a better place

You’re like heaven

You’re like comin’ home

You’re like a Sunday morning

Pleasing 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

You’re like comin’ home

You’re that innocence

That serenity

That long lost part of me

[Repeat Chorus]

Lonestar When Cowboys Didn’t Dance

Seven hundred head of cattle on an old forgotten trail

Six cowboys and one old man in another day of hell

Chuckwagon lagging behind from the strain of a broken wheel

The only thing to look forward to was a campfire and a meal

Asleep beneath an open sky with just the stars above their heads

A saddle for a pillow and some sagebrush for a bed

Waking up tomorrow was merely done by chance

Back when the west was wild and cowboys didn’t dance

When cowboys didn’t dance

Didn’t wear designer shirts

When their hearts were filled with memories

Their bodies filled with hurt

They would sit around the campfire and exchange a piercing glance

Back when the west was really wild and cowboys didn’t dance

More coffee from an old tin cup, more sweat upon the brow

Another day of chasing that same old lonely cow

With every new horizon began a brand new day

Thirteen hundred miles to go as they slowly made their way

Across the plains of Texas and through the Colorado snow

Final destination Blackfoot, Idaho

When cowboys didn’t dance

Didn’t wear designer shirts

When their hearts were filled with memories

Their bodies filled with hurt

They would sit around the campfire and exchange a piercing glance

Back when the west was really wild and cowboys didn’t dance

When cowboys didn’t dance

Didn’t wear designer shirts

When their hearts were filled with memories

Their bodies filled with hurt

They would sit around the campfire and exchange a piercing glance

Back when the west was really wild and cowboys didn’t dance

Seven hundred head of cattle on an old forgotten trail

Five cowboys and one old man in another day of hell

Lonestar All My Love For Christmas

It don’t jingle like a jingle bell

It ain’t made by a bunch of elves

It don’t come from the old North Pole

Can’t be delivered by a Ho-Ho-Ho

What it is

Your gonna love it

You can’t get to much of it

Here’s the package baby open it up

I’m givin’ you all my love for Christmas

I’m givin’ you all my love

You won’t find it underneath the tree

You can’t buy it with a roll of green

It’s the thing that makes life worth living

It’s the gift that just keeps on giving

What it is

Your gonna love it

You can’t get to much of it

Here’s the package baby open it up

I’m givin’ you all my love for Christmas

I’m givin’ you all my love

Yeah what it is

Your gonna love it

You can’t get to much of it

Here’s the package baby open it up

I’m givin’ you all my love… for Christmas

I’m givin’ you all my love for Christmas

I’m givin’ you all my love

Lonestar Cheater’s Road

Down a dirt road in southern Louisiana

Flew a white Continental with the top laid back

Pretty blonde sittin’ on a seat of red leather

Dust blowin’ outta those well wore tracks

She goin’ back

Moss hangin’ down like beards in the bayou

Old folks watchin’ from a rockin’ chair

Ain’t no place for a girl of her state

She’s gonna ruin her reputation

She don’t care cause he’s waitin’ there

She’s gonna say

Tell me you think that I’m pretty

Tell me you think that I’m smart

Tell me anything and I’ll believe it

‘Cause I’m listening with my heart

Maybe it’s wrong but that’s the way it goes

When the only love you get is down

Cheater’s road

Bedsprings rubbin’ her back through the blanket

Sweat like a tear rollin’ down her neck

Watchin’ him pullin’ down the shades on the window

She’d rather have him than an empty bed and her self respect

And she says

Tell me you think that I’m pretty

Tell me you think that I’m smart

Tell me anything and I’ll believe it

‘Cause I’m listening with my heart

Maybe it’s wrong but that’s the way it goes

When the only love you get is down

Cheater’s road

Old man countin’ his money in the city

Nothin’ but the bottom dollar on his mind

The whole situation is a downright pity

He didn’t even notice when she crossed that line

When she crossed that line

And she said

Tell me you think that I’m pretty

Tell me you think that I’m smart

Tell me anything and I’ll believe it

‘Cause I’m listening with my heart

Maybe it’s wrong but that’s the way it goes

When the only love you get is down

Cheater’s road

Down cheater’s road

Oh tell me you think that I’m pretty

Tell me you think that I’m smart

Oh tell me you think that I’m pretty

Tell me you think that I’m smart

Oh tell me you think that I’m pretty

Tell me you think that I’m smart
