Mindy Mccready Cross Against The Moon

Moonlight streaks across a picture of a Marilyn Monroe

While the corn stocks rattle outside her bedroom window

A strong Nebraska wind laying those prairie fields flat

She reads those Bible stories to her calico cat

She stares into the mirror at the cross around her neck

And hears her daddy’s sermons echo through her head

Then she closes her eyes and drifts into a dream

Sees her name on a marquis sign beside James Dean

It’s the cross against the moon

A restless girl in a pink bedroom

Sweet seventeen and the silver screen

Yellow brick road and technicolor dreams

Nothings black and white

Nothings wrong or right

Just questions that she hopes to answer soon

It’s the cross against the moon

Woo-oh, cross against the moon

Oh, yeah

Her daddy said Sundays spent in Gospel tents

Would keep the stars from stealing her innocence

She wants to live her life without these doubts and fears

But the sound of brimstone burning whispers in her ears

So she fights the battle of what she wants to be

Trying hard to find the courage to chase her dreams

She looks up to Marilyn says your looking good

She puts her Bible in her suitcase, pens off to Hollywood

It’s the cross against the moon

A restless girl in a pink bedroom

Sweet seventeen and the silver screen

Yellow brick road and technicolor dreams

Nothings black and white

Nothings wrong or right

Just questions that she hopes to answer soon

It’s the cross against the moon

Woo-oh, cross against the moon

Cross against the moon

Ooh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Mindy Mccready Tumble And Roll

The one I love is knockin’ at my door

With a kinda look I never saw before

He said “Hey baby, you and me,

There’s nothin’ like knowin’ when it’s time to leave”

I took a lesson from his advice

I thought about it once but I didn’t twice

Packed my life in a paper sack

Don’t miss nothin’ I never had

This old car’s our limosine

Ridin’ on hope, livin’ on dreams

Don’t wanna know nothin’ ’bout readin’ the map

We’re makin’ it up as we go

Final destination – don’t look back

’cause when you’re shottin’ the dice you just tumble and roll

If we ever get lost we can use the stars

Right now we don’t care where we are

Spinnin’ them wheels gonna get there yet

We’re runnin’ down a road of no regrets

Got each other and that’s enough

Ain’t we lucky, we got love

Don’t wanna know nothin’ ’bout readin’ the map

We’re makin’ it up as we go

Final destination – don’t look back

’cause when you’re shootin’ the dice you just tumble and roll

Got each other and that’s enough

Ain’t we lucky, we got love

Don’t wanna know nothin’ ’bout readin’ the map

We’re makin’ it up as we go

Final destination – don’t look back

’cause when you’re shootin’ the dice you just tumble and roll

Tumble and roll

Tumble and roll

Tumble and roll

Mindy Mccready For A Good Time Call

When I gave you my number

I thought you would use it

It’s just a little slip of paper

Darlin’ did you lose it?

I’ve been here alone waiting by this phone

But it ain’t rang at all

Oh, baby, for a good time call

Oh, reach out and touch me

Don’t you really wanna love me?

Seven numbers away

From this heart of mine

Do I have to write it on the wall?

Oh, baby, for a good time call.

Maybe we could see a movie

Take a walk and hold hands

I know a place that’s got good music

Where we could slow dance

Darlin’ if we do, I’ll show you

What it really means to fall

Oh, baby, for a good time call

Oh, reach out and touch me

Don’t you really wanna love me?

Seven numbers away

From this heart of mine

Do I have to write it on the wall?

Oh, baby, for a good time call.

Oh, reach out and touch me

Don’t you really wanna love me?

Seven numbers away

From this heart of mine

Do I have to write it on the wall?

I’m pacing up and down this hall

Oh, baby, for a good time call.

For a good time call

Mindy Mccready Lips Like Yours

Well I really didn’t wanna go out, to the movies

With some guy I didn’t know named Joe, a friend of my friend Susie’s

Waitin by the window, not expectin to see

Anyone who was any interest to me

You drove up in a powder blue corvette, it was a stingray

With Tony Bennett on the stereo and a rose stickin out of the ashtray

You jacked up your shades and you smiled at me

You said “Hello” I said “Oh no, here we go again”

With lips like yours you could talk me into anything

And with arms like yours you could hold me all night long

I guess I’ll dance the dance, take my chance, a leap of faith

Fly further than I’ve ever flown before

And even though it’s frightenin, I’ve got a taste of lightnin

With lips like yours

So we drove into the night, three hundred and fifty horses, hot as a piston

Said you didn’t know what I liked so you got sushi to go, and a bag of crispins

You said you were a black belt, had a kitten, loved your mom

Lookin for the right girl to travel the world

With lips like yours you could talk me into anything

And with arms like yours you could hold me all night long

I guess I’ll dance the dance, take my chance, a leap of faith

Fly further than I’ve ever flown before

And even though it’s frightenin, I’ve got a taste of lightnin

With lips like yours

I didn’t plan it but halfway through the movie

I couldn’t stand it so I kissed you then you whispered to me

With lips like yours you could talk me into anything

And with arms like yours you could hold me all night long

I guess I’ll dance the dance, take my chance, a leap of faith

Fly further than I’ve ever flown before

And even though it’s frightenin, I’ve got a taste of lightnin

With lips like yours

Oh yeah

From lips like yours

Ooh yeah

I guess I’ll dance the dance, take my chance, a leap of faith

Fly further than I’ve ever flown before

Mindy Mccready Don’t Speak

Wind chimes outside my window

Inside two hearts in tempo

Inhibitions slowly let go

We hold on

In a place where the world can’t find us

Love takes the wheel and drives us

Nothin but our senses guide us

All night long

Words get in the way

Throw them all away

Don’t speak, don’t rush

Whisper with your touch

Don’t talk, I’ll know

When I’ve reached your soul

Say it all to me

Don’t speak

Time moves in a gentle motion

Slow waves on a quiet ocean

We pledge our deep devotion

With a kiss

Your eyes are so revealing

Your fingertips are healing

I’ve never felt this feeling

Not like this

Please please pull me near

I hear you loud and clear

Don’t speak, don’t rush

Whisper with your touch

Don’t talk, I’ll know

When I’ve reached your soul

Say it all to me

Don’t speak

Please please pull me near

I hear you loud and clear

Don’t speak, don’t rush

Whisper with your touch

Don’t talk, I’ll know

When I’ve reached your soul

Say it all to me

Don’t speak

Mindy Mccready Tremble

It’s like you’re holding my heart in your hands

And for a moment, I can’t breath

More now forever there in your eyes

Oh the way you move me, I can’t help it, I

Tremble, every time that we touch

It’s a shock to my soul, I’m shakin all over

Baby it’s just too much

Cause your kiss, always leaves me like this

I have no defenses, lost all control

Something about your love makes me tremble

Oh I tremble

Baby for the first time I’m so completely lost

Somehow I’m right where I belong

Feel you like sunlight rushin through my veins

No one else could ever make me feel this way

I tremble, every time that we touch

It’s a shock to my soul, I’m shakin all over

Baby it’s just too much

Cause your kiss, always leaves me like this

I have no defenses, lost all control

Something about your love makes me tremble

I’m falling apart here in your arms cause I need you

Look at me baby, I just can’t help it

I love you

Oh your kiss always leaves me like this

I have no defenses, lost all control

Something about your love makes me tremble

Oh I tremble

Oh I tremble

Mindy Mccready I Hate That I Love You

All alone here in this bed, starin’ at the TV set

God, how did I get here again?

You say it’s over when you leave

Let the world pave way for me

Oh, what I’d give to be a man in times like these

When this wouldn’t mean a thing

Learn to look you in the eye, smile and say goodbye

Try to act like you don’t hurt like him

But damn, this stubborn heart keeps fallin’ apart

No matter how many times I tell myself it’s wrong

To be in this love at all

I hate that I love you

It’d be so much easier if it were true

I hate that I love you

But I do, oh, I do

I hate the way you make me feel

I love the way you make me feel

Don’t come back, baby, please come back

I hate that I love you

It’d be so much easier if it were true

I hate that I love you

But I do, oh, I do, yes, I do, oh, I do

Mindy Mccready I’ve Got A Feeling

I, I, I’ve got a feelin’

And I, I, I’m gonna hold you tonight

I, I, I’ve been dreamin’

Of holding your sweet body next to mine

Oh baby it’s sure been a long time comin’

Oh take me to that place that you’ve got hidden

In your e,e,eyes dark and yearning

Time is given to desire

M,m,my mind is spinning (my mind is spinning)

Thinking about what’s about to be mine

Oh baby it’s sure been a long time comin’

Oh take me to that place

The two of us just one heartbeat

Your love it’s so easy oh, oh

I, I, I’ve got a feelin’

And I, I, I’m gonna hold you tonight

I, I, I’ve been dreamin’

Of holding your sweet body next to mine

Holding your sweet body baby

Holding your sweet body baby

Holding your sweet body next to mine

Mindy Mccready Ten Thousand Angels

Speakin of the devil

Look who just walked in

He knows just where to find me

Here we go again

I can tell he’s gonna ask me to dance

Thats not as far as he wants to go

I need ten thousand angels

To help me tell him no

[Chorus:]

Lead me not into temptation

Heaven help me to be strong

I can fight all that I’m feelin

But I can’t do it alone

Help me break this spell that I’m under

Guide my feet and hold me tight

I need ten thousand angels

watchin over me tonight

It’s time to face my weakness

Look him in the eye

Lord knows it wont be easy

but I’ve just gotta try

I cant let myself get lost in his arms

Thats how i got my heart broke before

I need ten thousand angels

To walk me out the door

[Repeat Chorus]

I need ten thousand angels

Watchin over me tonight

Ten thousand angels watchin over me tonight

[Repeat]
