Rosanne Cash A Lover Is Forever

I think I understand

The reason you won’t stay with me

You think a ring upon your hand

Will solve your insecurity

So go ahead and play your games

If that’s what you must do

Nothing here remains the same

But the way I feel for you

I can watch you walk away

And I know that I’ll get by

And I know just what to say

But honey I can’t tell a lie

So figure out what you must do

I know you think you’re so damn clever

You can marry any time you want

But a lover is forever

I can watch you walk away

And I know that I’ll get by

And I know just what to say

But honey I can’t tell a lie

Figure out what you must do

I know you think you’re so damn clever

You can marry any time you want

But a lover is forever

You can marry any time you want

But a lover is forever

Rosanne Cash Dreams Are Not My Home

The waves are breaking on the wall

The queen of roses

Spreads her arms to fly, shed falls

If I had wings I’d cut them down

Live without these dreams

So I could learn to love the ground

‘Cause I wanna live inside the world

I wanna act like a real girl

I wanna know I’m not alone

And the dreams are not my home

The future’s like a ringing bell

The road to good intentions

Wanders all the way through hell

The note that hangs in the gilded hall

The clanging of my empty rooms

Yeah, I could learn to love them all

‘Cause I wanna live inside the world

I wanna act like a real girl

I wanna know I’m not alone

And the dreams are not my home

The waves are breaking like they do

The spiral of churches

Are the last place to enjoy the view

If I had wings I’d use them now

I could follow you

Then hope someone would pull me down

‘Cause I wanna live inside the world

I wanna act like a real girl

I wanna know I’m not alone

And the dreams are not my

Dreams are not my

Dreams are not my home

(Dreams are not my home)

Rosanne Cash She’s Got You

I’ve got your picture, you gave to me

And it’s signed, “With love” just like it used to be

Only thing different, only thing new

I’ve got your picture, she’s got you

I’ve got the records we used to share

And they still sound the same when you were here

Only thing different, only thing new

I’ve got your records, he’s got you

I’ve got your memory or has it got me

Really don’t know but I know it won’t let me be

Won’t let me be

I’ve got your memory or has it got me

Really don’t know but I know it won’t let me be

Won’t let me be

I’ve got your class ring that proves you care

And it still looks the same as when you gave it, dear

Only thing different, only thing new

I’ve got your class ring, he’s got you

Only thing different, only thing new

I’ve got your picture, who’s got you

Who’s got you, who’s got you, who’s got you, who’s got you?

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, who’s got you?

He or she? Gender bender to me

Who’s got you?

Rosanne Cash Where Will The Words Come From?

Where will the words come from

When I tell you I don’t love you anymore?

When I command my lips to say

“It’s over now, please go away”

Will the words be there

Or will they fail me like they’ve always done before?

Where will the words come from

When I tell you I don’t want you, I don’t love you anymore

What happened to the love we had when it went away?

Did it change itself into a cloud & become a rainy day?

Where will the words come from

When I tell you I don’t want you, I don’t love you anymore

Where will the words come from

When I tell you I don’t love you anymore?

When I search inside my soul

For words to tell of love grown cold

Will the words be there

Or will they fail me like they’ve always done before?

Where will the words come from

When I tell you I don’t want you, I don’t love you anymore

Rosanne Cash Rosie Strike Back

He’s a bruiser, he likes to tease you

He’s a loser, you think he needs you

You always come back, you always come back for more

He winds up tight, out all night

Been drinkin’ down he’s looking for a fight

He knocks you down; you don’t even know what for

Rosie strike back

Rosie strike back

Hit the road and never look back

You can’t suffer your whole life living like that

Get goin’, don’t pack

Take the baby and the clothes on your back

Keep walking Rosie

Strike back

You think he’s changin’, weeks pass

He’s angry, lies coiled like a snake in the grass

The time will come when he takes it all out on you

He throws punches, you bear with him

Don’t take it on you, Rosie, don’t be his victim

You can’t carry the blame for what he’s puttin’ you through

Rosie strike back

Rosie strike back

Hit the road and never look back

You can’t suffer your whole life living like that

Get goin’, don’t pack

Take the baby and the clothes on your back

Keep walking Rosie

Strike back

Don’t take his world on your shoulder

Don’t let your heart grow much colder

There’s people out there who can help you

If you let them help you

Hey, Rosie

Keep walking, Rosie

Rosie strike back

Rosie strike back

Hit the road and never look back

You can’t suffer your whole life living like that

Get goin’, don’t pack

Take the baby and the clothes on your back

Keep walking Rosie

Strike back

Rosanne Cash House On The Lake

Well, I miss the sounds of Tennessee

And the smell of heavy rain

The roses in the garden

Laugh before the pain

But I hear his voice close in my ear

I see her smile and wave

I blink and while my eyes are closed

They both have gone away

Blue bare room, the wood and nails

There’s nothing left to take

But love and years are not for sale

In our old house on the lake

Well, I’m goin’ down to New Orleans

‘Cause we both are sinkin’ fast

And I’ll stare into the Bourbon moon

We’ll see how long we last

But I hear his voice

I follow down the velvet undertow

Back to the place where I was born

Back to my southern home

Blue bare room, the wood and nails

There’s nothing left to take

But love and years are not for sale

In our old house on the lake

In our old house on the lake

In our old house

Rosanne Cash Paralyzed

I picked up the phone, you were both on the line

Your words to each other froze me in time

A lifetime between us just burnt on the wires

Dissolved in a dial tone, consumed in your fires

Your footsteps beside me, the phone in my hand

I can’t move

I can’t stand

Our faces in pieces, facades on the floor

The pretense between us for a moment destroyed

I don’t want to go on with these words in my heart

But the ghost of your anger will tear us apart

How my little world just went up in smoke

I’m too young

I’m too old

One day soon I’ll know

One day soon I’ll just let it go

I run from the bedroom with legs paralyzed

I carve out my future part prophet, part blind

It’s nobody’s business, no one is to blame

We’ll meet in the distance, new numbers new names

I’ve lifted the veil, I’ve walked through the fire

I’ll move on

I’ll go higher

Rosanne Cash I Want A Cure

Distance makes the heart start wondering

Absence makes the anger grow

The world may just be spinning through us

And seperation lets it show

I walk away the fear and anger

I’m talking through the tears each day

I push myself to points of danger

But nothing makes it go away

[Chorus]

I want a cure

A mental, geographical cure

A physical, chemical cure

Sugar or shopping

Drinking or dropping

The emotional highs

Of my life in disguise

There’s one thing for sure

I want a cure

Love seems like a fancy theory

Fame a substitute for friends

Those who love can’t get near me

Those who don’t are moving in

A heart is like a broken window

Pain depends on point of view

The world may just be slowly stopping

And no one knows but me and you

[Chorus]

Where no one can see me

No one knows how I’m feeling

[Chorus]

Rosanne Cash If You Change Your Mind

If you change your mind

And leave the past behind

You know where you’ll always find me

And if she breaks your heart

And tears your world apart

You can always count on me

And when your heart’s in doubt

And things aren’t working out

I can be the one who makes you happy

Call me on the telephone

Darling, I’m always home

If you ever change your mind

When the time is right

I can hold you tight

You know I can wait forever

And time is on our side

And we can surely find

All the love we’ll ever need

And take a chance on this

Seal it with a kiss

I can be the one who makes you happy

Call me on the telephone

Darling, I’m always home

If you ever change your mind

All I have is love to give you

Baby, I could be there with you

If you ever change your mind

Call me on the telephone

Darling, I am always home

If you ever change your mind

Rosanne Cash What Kinda Girl?

What kinda girl am I really am?

I love some turkey but I don’t eat lamb

No sweet potato but I do like ham

What kinda girl am I really am?

What kinda girl am I really I?

I kept my jacket but I lost my tie

I’ll tell ya truly that I sometimes lie

What kinda girl am I really I?

What kinda girl am I really who?

Don’t wear pajamas and I don’t sniff glue

I’m Mississippi, got the New York blues

What kinda girl am I really who?

What kinda girl am I really what?

I might be leavin’ but the door ain’t shut

I’m here for lovin’ but I ain’t no slut

What kinda girl am I really what?

What kinda girl am I really am?

I love some turkey but I don’t eat lamb

No sweet potato but I do like ham

What kinda girl am I?

Am I really am?

Girl
