Michael Ray Summer Water

Sometimes that lake got angry, as the lightnin’ went and crashed

Sometimes it was so still, it looked like a sheet of glass

But it washed away our beer cans, and it washed away our sins

It talked us out of all our clothes, and begged us to jump in

There was magic in the summer water

Learned to swim in the summer water

All the small town sons and daughters

Were baptized a thousand times

Built a fire by it like an altar

Gave it every song we could offer

Memories float on it like a bobber

Out there on the summer water

When a heart was broken, it was better than a church pew sanctuary

A lot of long kiss, rocks skip, sun drenched orange crushed bottle caps got buried

It’s where you spend your first night with your first love before the mercury starts fallin’

It’s where you spend the last night with your first love before somebody goes to college

There was magic in the summer water

Learned to swim in the summer water

All the small town sons and daughters

Were baptized a thousand times

Built a fire by it like an altar

Gave it every song we could offer

Memories float on it like a bobber

Out there on the summer water

There was somethin’ ’bout the summer water

Every girl that’s where you brought her

It’s where you slipped that ring you bought her

On her shakin’ hand

Built a fire by it like an altar

Gave it every song we could offer

Memories float on it like a bobber

Out there on the summer water

Yeah out on the summer water

Michael Ray Real Men Love Jesus

Real men love fishin’

Fast cars and livin’

Out on the edge so far

They’re gonna need forgivin’

Real men like football

Cowboys and outlaws

Can’t help but fly so high

It’s gonna hurt to fall

They like Saturday nights out on the town

Sunday morning coming down

A pretty girl out on the dance floor spinnin’

Round and round and round they go

Cold beer and a dirty hand

Calling home every chance they can

To say I love you

They don’t need a reason

Real men love Jesus

And they love mama

If they can get more than forty hours

You know they gonna

They give it hell till they get it right

The kind every country girl’s tryin’ to find

Every girl’s daddy’s kinda guy

Ain’t scared to pray, ain’t scared to fight

They like Saturday nights out on the town

Sunday morning coming down

A pretty girl out on the dance floor spinnin’

Round and round and round they go

Cold beer and a dirty hand

Calling home every chance they can

To say I love you

They don’t need a reason

Real men love Jesus

Real men love Jesus

They don’t believe in leavin’

When the goin’ gets tough

They just keep on keepin’

They like Saturday nights out on the town

Sunday morning coming down

A pretty girl out on the dance floor spinnin’

Round and round and round they go

Cold beer and a dirty hand

Calling home every chance they can

To say I love you

They don’t need a reason

Real men love Jesus

Real men love Jesus

Michael Ray Think A Little Less

Midnight’s creepin’ in, we know better

Than leaving here together

And in case you were wondering

You’ve never looked hotter

So why even bother

Looking at the reasons not to

Maybe we ought to

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

Burning up the night like a cigarette

And get you out of this bar

Out of that dress

And kiss a little more

And kiss a little more

Think a little less

When your friends start asking you

Look ’em in the eyes

Tell a white lie

How I dropped you off at home

And I walked you to the door

Nothing more

Tomorrow you can say we’re just friends

But baby ‘til then

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

Burning up the night like a cigarette

And get you out of this bar

Out of that dress

And kiss a little more

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

I’ll go warm up the truck if you wanna hop in

Give you a minute or two

To say goodbye to your friends

Ain’t gotta go home

But we gotta get gone

Cause we’ve already waited way too long to…

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

And do the only thing we’ve been thinking ‘bout doing

Since the moment, girl, we met

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

Burning up the night like a cigarette

And get you out of this bar

Out of that dress

And kiss a little more

Kiss a little more

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

Burning up the night like a cigarette

And get you out of this bar

Out of that dress

And kiss a little more

Kiss a little more

Think a little less

Yeah, think a little less

Yeah, think a little less

Michael Ray Another Girl

She hung her halo up

And put her boots on

She got all prettied up

Rockin’ in the mirror

To a country song

Girls in the driveway pickin’ her up

She can hear that bass drum kickin’

All week long she been bottled up

Like a time bomb ticking

Aw, now look at her go

Sippin’ on somethin’

On the way to the show

Flirtin’ her way

To the front row

She got her moonlight wild side

Crazy coming out on a Friday night

Straight out of another world

She turns into another girl

You gotta stand back watch her move

One that the band’s all singing to

Spin around like a tilt-a-whirl

I can’t look at another girl

Another girl

When she’s at her 9 to 5

No, she don’t say much

She’s a little shy tied

Don’t ever hear her say much

Oh, if they could see her now

They wouldn’t recognize her

Wearing some boys hat she just met

Holding up her beer like a lighter

She got her moonlight wild side

Crazy coming out on a Friday night

Straight out of another world

She turns into another girl

You gotta stand back watch her move

One that the band’s all singing to

Spin around like a tilt-a-whirl

Yeah, I can’t look at another girl

Another girl

Turns into another girl

There ain’t ever been another girl

That can move me like she does

I can’t take my eyes off of her

She got her moonlight wild side

Crazy coming out on a Friday night

Straight out of another world

She turns into another girl

You gotta stand back watch her move

One that the band’s all singing to

Spin around like a tilt-a-whirl

I can’t look at another girl

Yeah, look at her go

She’s getting down in the front row

Yeah, do your thang girl

Michael Ray Get To You

Somebody had to hurt you bad

For you to give up like that

Somebody had to break your heart in two

But that ain’t me and you

So tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

You can’t look me in the eye

What am I supposed to do?

When you say we’re through

Why do you?

Run away, run away from love

What the hell are you so scared of?

You walk away when you’ve had enough

Of trying, of trying

Girl there’s always gonna be some pain

A little sunshine, a little rain

It doesn’t mean it ain’t worth it babe

I’m trying, I’m trying to get to you

To you

One day you’re gonna love again

Mess up and let somebody in

To every part of your whole world

You think it’s unthinkable girl

But somebody’s gonna break those walls

Somebody’s gonna watch you fall

Gonna give it your all and I hope that I’m around

When you finally find out why you

Run away, run away from love

What the hell are you so scared of?

You walk away when you’ve had enough

Of trying, of trying

Girl there’s always gonna be some pain

A little sunshine, a little rain

It doesn’t mean it ain’t worth it babe

I’m trying, I’m trying to get to you

To you

So tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

You can’t look me in the eye

What am I supposed to do?

When you say we’re through

Why do you?

Run away, run away from love

What the hell are you so scared of?

You walk away when you’ve had enough

Of trying, of trying

Girl there’s always gonna be some pain

A little sunshine, a little rain

It doesn’t mean it ain’t worth it babe

I’m trying, I’m trying to get to you

To you

Somebody had to hurt you bad

For you to give up like that

Somebody had to break your heart in two

But that ain’t me and you

Michael Ray Why Did You Say Yes

Was it too many fights

Too many slips of the tongue

I guess it doesn’t really matter what was said

And maybe they were right we were just to young

Or did you burn out like some old cigarette

How could you fade that fast

Cause I ain’t a perfect man but girl I gave you all I had

Working doubles damn near killed me just to pay for that diamond ring

Maybe I should have known when I saw that number on your phone

How did everything we build become such a mess

Girl why did you say yes

Tell me I was wrong and that I just don’t understand

And that voice on your machine wasn’t there

Did you know all along, was it something that you planned

Cause I’m wondering if you ever even cared

How could you fade so fast

Cause I ain’t a perfect man but girl I gave you all I had

Working doubles damn near killed me just to pay for that diamond ring

Maybe I should have known when I saw that number on your phone

How did everything we build become such a mess

Girl why did you say yes

Yes to another man’s tender kisses

Yes to the touch of his finger tips

Yes to the empty promises and broken lies from his lips

Cause I ain’t a perfect man but girl I gave you all I had

Working doubles never killed me just to pay for that diamond ring

Maybe I should have known when I saw that number on your phone

How did everything we build become such a mess

Girl why did you say yes

Girl why did you say yes

Michael Ray Fan Girl

Michael Ray Look Like This

You don’t know what you’re doin’

Or do ya

Got me sittin’ over here

Wishin’ that I knew ya

I ain’t got ya yet

But I don’t wanna lose ya

Gotta get a little closer to ya

And it starts with a look like this

In the dark like this

Got me thinkin’ I should

Walk across the bar like this

Sayin’ hey like this

Who you be here with

Nah, it doesn’t really matter

We could leave like this

Get to know each other better

All night or whatever

Keeps your kiss

Feelin’ good like this

And it starts with a buzz

And a look like this

Is it the song or how that neon’s glowin’

Maybe I’m just caught up in the moment

But baby there ain’t no real way of knowin’

Til we get goin’

And it starts with a look like this

In the dark like this

Got me thinkin’ I should

Walk across the bar like this

Sayin’ hey like this

Who you be here with

Nah, it doesn’t really matter

We could leave like this

Get to know each other better

All night or whatever

The night ain’t gettin’ any younger

Let’s get one thing leadin’ to another

I don’t know or care how this things ends

But it starts with a look like this

And a drink like this

And you movin’ to a song

With a beat like this

Hittin’ me like this

Like a midnight fix

Girl I got a feelin’

That you might like this

And it starts with a look like this

In the dark like this

Got me thinkin’ I should

Walk across the bar like this

Sayin’ hey like this

Who you be here with

Nah, it doesn’t really matter

We could leave like this

Get to know each other better

All night or whatever

Michael Ray Forget About It

Forget about it

Forget about it

Forget about it

What’s wrong girl? You’re lookin’ down and out

I’m sittin’ over here tryin’ to figure it out

Why a pretty girl like you is corner booth cryin’

All alone, well who raped your world? On a Friday night

You should be movin’ slow in the neon lights

Held close with a kiss, feelin’ right

‘Stead of waitin’ by the phone

Didn’t he hold the door? Didn’t he bring ya flowers?

Girl you deserve down on one knee with a ring in front of that Eiffel Tower

Forget about it, he ain’t in the picture no more, shut the door

Bock it out, I’m here right now to unbreak your heart

Let’s chase a good time and erase the pain

The hurt and the tears and the wasted jeers

You need a little bit of “Hey, baby come of here”

Let me buy you a beer, get to workin’ on movin’ on

When it comes to him, forget about it

Whatcha say girl? How do we turn it around?

Maybe move to the bar, knock some whiskeys down

Hit the dance floor and get down

Baby are you down to

Forget about it, he ain’t in the picture no more, shut the door

Bock it out, I’m here right now to unbreak your heart

Let’s chase a good time and erase the pain

The hurt and the tears and the wasted jeers

You need a little bit of “Hey, baby come of here”

Let me buy you a beer, get to workin’ on movin’ on

When it comes to him, forget about it

Forget about it, he ain’t in the picture no more, shut the door

Bock it out, I’m here right now to unbreak your heart

Let’s chase a good time and erase the pain

The hurt and the tears and the wasted jeers

You need a little bit of “Hey, baby come of here”

Let me buy you a beer, get to workin’ on movin’ on

When it comes to him, forget about it

Forget about it

Forget about it

Forget about it
