Sugarland Hello

I was born in the heart of a hurricane season

In the house where my mamma was raised

That old September wind feels just like a long lost friend

And I…

[Chorus:]

I want to run through those cottonwood trees

Fall asleep in a big bed of fresh fallen leaves

And in every wind that blows there’s a song of letting go

It’s not goodbye, it’s hello

When we met underneath the blue skies of summer

And those summer skies turn into fall

That sweet September wind made us so much more than friends

On Night…

And we ran through those cottonwood trees

We made love in a big bed of fresh fallen leaves

And in every wind that blows there’s an innocence that knows

It’s not goodbye, it’s hello

In the moment that one thing ends

Is the same time that one begins

And return as we must

We are ashes to dust, amen.

When the days of my youth have all faded

And the memories are all that remain

Let that old September wind take me back to where I’ve been

So I…

[Chorus:]

I can run through those cottonwood trees

And remember the smell of those fresh fallen leaves

Now in every wind that blows there’s a part of me that knows

It’s not goodbye, it’s hello

Sugarland Guide You Home

It’s hard to say goodbye

So pack up your secrets

Nobody asks you if it hurts

Just if you keep it

You’re counting the steps

Of what you have left

When your hands

Worn down to the bone

And you’re not sure

You can stand on your own

And the darkness

Won’t leave you alone

The light will guide you home

When it all falls down

And you wish you could fall too

Did you call out for this life

Or did it call you

You’re counting the stars, 1, 2

Is there anything left

When your hands

Worn down to the bone

And you’re not sure

You can stand on your own

And the darkness

Won’t leave you alone

The light will guide you home

When your hands

Worn down to the bone

And you’re not sure

You can stand on your own

And the darkness

Won’t leave you alone

The light will guide you home

Sugarland 50 Cent Lovin’

I’m so tired of being all alone

So frustrated waitin by the phone

When I think of everything I miss

Wonder why I carry on like this

I can’t hide my love for you

But I can surely do without

The shit you put me through

[Chorus:]

You can tell me that you’re sorry til your face turns blue

Oughta go out with you brother and your best friend too

Sit on the porch and drink some more beer

I don’t need your fifty-cent lovin’ round here

round here [x5]

fifty-cent lovin round here

No use tryin’, I won’t change my mind

You’ve been cheatin’ honey I’m not blind

I’m not half the fool you took me for

No surprise I don’t love you anymore

Take your love and diamond ring

Shove’em up your buttercup

Cause they don’t mean a thing

[Chorus:]

You can tell me that you’re sorry til you face turns blue

Oughta go out with your brother and your best friend too

Sit on the porch and drink some more beer

I don’t need your fifty-cent lovin’ round here

round here [x5]

fifty-cent lovin round here

You can tell me that you’re sorry til you face turns blue

Oughta go out with your brother and your best friend too

Sit on the porch and drink some more beer

I don’t need your fifty-cent lovin’ round here

round here [x5]

fifty-cent lovin round here

Sugarland Little Wood Guitar

It’s Christmas day

And the snow is coming down

Church bells sway

They’re ringing awake the town

Preacher Kline recites his lines

The pews’ll be full today

Mr. Howe cranks up his plow

His baldes’ll clear the way

It’s Christmas day

And the pecan pies are baking

Mothers say it’s the giving not the taking

My brother’s brand new bicycle is out jangling in the street

I watch him through the icicles

With that wood box beneath my feet

[Chorus:]

All I got was this little wood guitar

What it brought was neon lights and crowded bars

Like all the kings with all thier gold

Went chasing down your star I’m told

Every highway takes me where you are

With this little wood guitar

It’s Christmas day

Funny how the years can shape us

Much has changed

I’m a musician not a waitress

Chicago’s a winter wonderland

At my brother’s and his wife’s

Passing around thier dinner plates

And dissecting my life

[Chorus]

I never stopped believing

I just kept on singing

Now people come to hear from miles around

And I don’t mind confessing

That I still count my blessings

I just never thought I’d settle down

It’s Christmas day

And the little one’s are waking

I hear them play

I can hear the presents shaking

The boy’s outside on his new bike

Jangling in the street

That little girl, she’s watching him

With that wood box beneath her feet

All she got was this little wood guitar

What I thought is it might take her pretty far

Like all the kings with all their gold

Went chasing down your star I’m told

Every highway takes me where you are

With this little wood guitar

Little wood guitar

Sugarland Something More

Monday, hard to wake up

Fill my coffee cup, I’m out the door

Yeah, the freeway’s standing still today

It’s gonna make me late, and thats for sure

I’m running out of gas and out of time

Never gonna make it there by nine

[Chorus:]

There’s gotta be something more

Gotta be more than this

I need a little less hard time

I need a little more bliss

I’m gonna take my chances

Taking a chance I might

Find what I’m looking for

There’s gotta be something more

Five years and there’s no doubt

That I’m burnt out, I’ve had enough

So now boss man, here’s my two weeks

I’ll make it short and sweet, so listen up

I could work my life away, but why?

I got things to do before I die

[Repeat Chorus]

Some believe in destiny, and some believe in fate

I believe that happiness is something we create

You best believe that I’m not gonna wait

‘Cause there’s gotta be something more

I get home 7:30 the house is dirty, but it can wait

Yeah, ’cause right now I need some downtime

To drink some red wine and celebrate

Armageddon could be knocking at my door

But I ain’t gonna answer that’s for sure.

There’s gotta be something!

[Repeat Chorus]

Sugarland All We Are

[Exagerated notes]

Fire like lightening

Burnin’ up the night

Smoke horizon

Won’t give up the fight

Fire like lightening

Burnin’ up the night a smoke horizon

Won’t give up the fight

Well, deep inside can you hear that call?

Wakin’ your heart and shakin’ your walls

Where love is found, the nations fall

A cry will rise above it all

All we are (We are!)

All we are (We are!)

All we are (We are!)

All we are, We are young!

Shine like diamonds

Cut the night into the sky

Light ridin’

Show me your love

Deep inside I can hear that call

Wakin’ my hear and shakin’ my walls

Where love is found, the nations fall

A cry will rise above it all

All we are (We are!)

All we are (We are!)

All we are (We are!)

All we are, We are yoouuunnnngggg!

Oooooohhhhhhhh

Lift me up (Fire like lightening, baby)

It’s not over (Fire like lightening, baby)

We are young (Fire like lightening, baby)

Tell me (Fire like lightening, baby)

Over and over (Over and over)

We are young (Over and over)

Over and over (Over and over)

Over and over and over and over and over and over

Fire like lightening

Sugarland Happy Ending

Cowboys ride into sunsets

The good guy always gets the girl

Cinderella has just fit

A glass slipper that changed her world

We all know the stories

We all know the fairy tales

We all get the glory of making it for ourselves

From the beginning

We’re all looking for a happy ending

Every dream of winning

Every love we’ve been in

Right from the beginning

We’re looking for a happy ending

We’ve come here with nothing

And take it with us the day we leave

The first and last breath don’t matter

It’s all the ones that are in-between

It’s the reason for living

It’s the reason the caged bird sings

It’s why we sit in the movies

All the way to the closing scenes

From the beginning

We’re all looking for a happy ending

Every dream of winning

Every love we’ve been in

Right from the beginning

We’re looking for a happy ending

And all those dreamers who have come and gone

Who’ve reached for the stars, who’ve overcome

You’re the hope, you’re the wish, you’re the truth

Baby, here’s the proof

Baby’s born in this ghetto

Baby’s born with a silver spoon

One tells his Mama I have a dream

One tells his Mama I’ll walk the moon

From the beginning

We’re all looking for a happy ending

Every dream of winning

Every love we’ve been in

Right from the beginning

We’re looking for

From the beginning

We’re all looking for a happy ending

Every dream of winning

Every love we’ve been in

Right from the beginning

We’re looking for a happy ending

Sugarland Keep You

We said goodbye. Tried a hand at magic.

But we couldn’t make us disappear.

Not a day goes by I don’t wish I had you.

So in a way, I’m glad you’re still here.

It’s a bitter sweet victory.

Lovin’ the ghost in front of me.

Now I can’t laugh, can’t cry.

And I can’t run, can’t hide.

What do I gotta do?

What do I gotta do to keep you?

What do I gotta do to keep you from doing this to me?

I wrote a couple of notes.

One in love, one in anger.

They’re lying there dying in the dresser drawer.

Lived louder than my voice. Struggled through a stranger.

He loved me until I loved you even more.

It’s a bitter sweet victory.

Knowin’ someone else wanted me.

Now I can’t laugh, can’t cry.

And I can’t run, can’t hide.

You get used to the pain, and numb to the sting

Till you can’t feel anything.

You tried to explain, but I couldn’t hear it.

As if your words were my tears.

Flowing freely, warm and quiet.

From the edges of my eyes and my ears.

Then all that disappears.

Now I can’t laugh, can’t cry.

And I can’t run, can’t hide.

Now I can’t laugh, can’t cry.

And I can’t run, can’t hide.

What do I gotta do?

What do I gotta do to keep you?

What do I gotta do to keep you from doing this to me?

Sugarland Speed Of Life

[1st Verse]

We drove all night to get to Corpus Christi

My parents slept right through

They never missed me

We were far from sleepin’

When the truth began to creep in

That we weren’t goin’ home anytime soon

[2nd Verse]

The mornin’ light sure took us by surprise

We grabbed our clothes

Watched a beautiful sunrise

We were one together

And we must have talked forever

And it was then and there I realized that

[Chorus]

(And) I don’t want to wait even one more night

It’s hard to slow it down when it feels so right

Knees buckled, white knuckled

We’re holdin’ on tight (holdin’ on tight)

(We’re) travelin’ at twice the speed of life

(Yea, yea, yeah yeah)

[3rd Verse]

We worked our way through college waitin’ tables

Bought a little white house with a picket fence and cable

I asked if he was ready

To become a Mom and Daddy

And then I found my answer in his eyes

And he said…

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]

Now, our oldest girl is almost grown

She’s got a boyfriend of her own

I heard her sneakin’ out with him last night

And if she’s anything like me

She’s desperate to be wild and free

We know now it’s just a matter of time

‘Til she says…

[Chorus Out]

Sugarland Find The Beat Again

Why you walking around with your heart so heavy?

Is it gettin you down? Steady beat, beat steady.

And with the way you’re feeling, thinking that it never will end

And I know you say you got your reasons, you kick it ’til you break it again

But I wanna say

Hey! (Hey!)

Hey! (Hey!)

Things are lookin’ better now

Hey! (Hey!)

Hey! (Hey!)

Nothin’ lasts forever if you open up your heart and let it in…..

You’ll find the beat again

You’ve been blue for a while and you just can’t shake it

Got no reason to smile so you have to fake it

And with the way you’re feeling, thinking that you gotta pretend

Though I know you say you got your reasons, you kick it ’til you break it again

Still I wanna say

Hey! (Hey!)

Hey! (Hey!)

Things are lookin’ better now

Hey! (Hey!)

Hey! (Hey!)

Nothin’ lasts forever if you open up your heart and let it in…..

You’ll find the beat again

Come on, Come on!

Come on, Come on!

Come on, Come on nowwwww

Everybody say

Hey! (Hey!)

Hey! (Hey!)

Things are lookin’ better now

Hey! (Hey!)

Hey! (Hey!)

Nothin’ lasts forever if you open up your heart and let it in…..

You’ll find the beat again

(Hey! Hey!) Come on, Come on!

(Hey! Hey!) Come on, Come on!

(Hey! Hey!) Come on, Come on!

(Hey! Hey!) Come on, Come on!

(Hey! Hey!) Why you walking around? (Come on, come on!)

(Hey! Hey!) Why you walking around? (Come on, come on!)

(Hey! Hey!) Why you walking around? (Come on, come on!)

(Hey! Hey!)
