Taylor Hicks The Deal

The sun’s shining and it’s raining

No better way to describe my feel

When you left my heart was complaining

How a couple of days can act like years

I know living with me ain’t easy

When I tell you how I feel

A simple phrase,

Hard to put into words

Let it grow

Let it show

Let it flow

I’m here to show you, baby,

This love is real

Wherever you go

My heart’s bound to follow

Wherever you go

Then I’ll be there

This being gone’s

Been a tough pill to swallow

I hope you can feel me in the air

Now I don’t mind a whole lot of waiting

If this is truly how you feel

I’m tired of scratching those reservations

If I just might, tonight, then all right

If it’s real, then go on baby

And let’s make that deal

Mmmmmm

I’ve given you the best I’ve got to offer

’cause there ain’t no more in here to see

This premonition I have is awful

Thanks to the moonbeams’ generosity

Now I don’t mind a whole lot of waiting

If this is truly how you feel

I’m tired of scratching those reservations

If I just might, tonight, then all right

If it’s real, then go on baby

If I just might, tonight, then all right

If it’s real, then go on baby

Let’s make that deal, mmmmmmmm

Let’s make that deal

Taylor Hicks The Right Place

If it’s loving that you want,

Well, it’s loving you’ll receive

’cause you’ve come to the right place, baby

Yeah, the door is always open

If you need some company

You’ve come to the right place, baby

Heaven knows that I can’t read your mind

We can turn it around,

Darlin’, one step at a time

Angel, oh angel, can’t you see

That I can’t live without you,

So baby won’t you help me please?

When there’s no one left to trust,

Well, I think that you’ll agree

That you’ve come to the right place, baby

When you’re down on your luck

Well, just look around, you’ll see

That you’ve come to the right place, baby

Sometimes you don’t know

What you’ve got until it’s gone

Then you look around

And it was right there all along

’cause angel, angel, you’ve got to understand

That I don’t want to be without you

Oh, won’t you help me if you can?

I ain’t asking for the world

I just want you to believe

That you’ve come to the right place, baby

When there’s no one else to hold you,

Well, I’ll be there yes indeed

Oh, you’ve come to the right place, baby

Yeah, you’ve come to the right place

Oh, you’ve come to the right place, baby

Yeah, you’ve come to the right place

Taylor Hicks Places I’ve Been

I think of all the places I’ve been

it always comes down to one thing

The only place I want to be

is with you

I think of all the faces Ive seen

and though they all mean something to me

The only face I want to see

belongs to you

All the places I’ve been meant nothing

They were nowhere

’cause you were not there

Everything I’ve been through

Everything before you

Was just time moving on

with no meaning

You’re what was missing

I think of all the people I’ve known

Some I’ve loved with all of my soul

But the one that I have loved the most is you

I think of all the things that I’ve learned

and after all the pages I’ve turned

the only place I want to turn is to you

All the places i’ve been meant nothing

They were nowhere

’cause you were not there

Everything I’ve been through

Everything before you

was just time moving on with no meaning

You’re what was missing

I think of all the places I’ve been

and it always comes down to one thing

The only palce I want to be is with you

And after everything that I’ve done

And after everyone that I’ve loved

The only thing I know is true

The only place I want to be is with you

The only place I want to be is with you

The only place I want to be is with you

Round your Virgin Mother and Child

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Radiant beams from Thy holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Shepherds quake at the sight

Glories stream from heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!

Taylor Hicks Hell Of A Day

I’ve been doin’ lots of time

Workin’ on Love’s assembly line

And now it’s kinda hard to make my way

Love has made for a hell of a day

Hell of a day is what love has made

They never said love was an easy trade

Say, if you don’t mind, I’ll be on my way

Well, Love has made for a hell of a day

So you can get on with your life, baby

And I can get on with mine

There ain’t no time for heartbreak or sorrow

You can’t be too concerned over spilled wine

Hell of a day is what love has made

They never said love was an easy trade

And now it’s kinda hard to make my way

Love has made for a hell of a day

I’ve been workin’ with the heart’s metallurgy

And the nights have become cold

In this world, a lonesome feelin’

You can’t turn silver into gold

Hell of a day, yeah, is what love has made

They never said love was an easy trade

And now it’s kinda hard to make my way

Love has made for a hell of a day

Hell of a day is what love has made

They never said love was an easy trade

Say, if you don’t mind, I’ll be on my way

Well, Love has made for a hell of a day

Taylor Hicks Hide Nor Hair

Ohhhh, I was lying in the bed with fever

And I was, burning up inside

My baby walked, in my bedroom

And I could hardly open my eyes

She said that she was going to the pawnshop

Just across the track

She started packing some clothes in a hurry

And then she said she would be right back

But I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day, yeah

Well I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since she went away

I remember so well when she slammed the door

But the girl didn’t make it back no more

I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day

Well, I waited for 24 hours, and I was just about to starve to death

It didn’t look like she was comin’ back, so I had to look out for myself

Well I called, the police department, to find out what they knew

They said, “No, by heck, but we will get her yet”, because they was lookin’ for her too

Well I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day, yeah

Well I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since she went away

Well I don’t know what happened a-cross the track

But I know my baby didn’t make it back

I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day

[Instrumental break]

Well I called, my Dr. Foster, and when the girl answered the phone

I got a funny feeling, the way she said Dr. Foster had gone

She said, “He left with a lady patient, about 24 hours ago”

I added two and two, and here’s what I got: I got I’ll never see that girl no more

Well I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day, yeah

But I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since she went away

If Dr. Foster has got her, then I know I’m through

Because he’s got medicine and, money too

I ain’t seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day

Whoaah, no

Taylor Hicks The Fall

It’s funny how my life changes with the snow takes a long, hard solid state of gold all the times I look it still occurs to me just passing time, trying not to mind set my spirit free

There’s a place and time for everything when the good gets going bad and every time I try to look and hide it leaves you lonely, feeling blue, and feeling sad

Here it comes just rushing in

The distant smile replied, a distant grin it’s not so bad after all I climbed the ladder, and you took the fall you took the fall

Light on my feet I’m walking down

My steps are heavier to lessening frown soon I’ll be gone so pay me no mind there’s always the worries wasting time, and ways to whine

Here it comes just rushing in

The distant smile replied, a distant grin it’s not so bad after all I climbed the ladder, baby, and you took the fall you took the fall

Feelings will pass and soon have to go

The colder the heart, the harder the wind blow although you’re trying to make your own throughway you turn your back on love with the games that people play

Here it comes just rushing in

The distant smile replies, a distant grin it’s not so bad after all I climbed the ladder, baby, and you took the fall you took the fall, took the fall

Taylor Hicks Keepin It Real

Her Daddy had the money…. All the milk and honey… she never had to pay any dues

Don’t know what her name is… but man she sure is famous… she keeps herself all over the news

They’re playing close attention… the new Inside Edition… Is feeding all they can to her fans

She’s got the paparazzi… behind her Macerate… Their snapping off as much as they can

I say why, why, why has it got be such a big deal?

We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real

Better off keeping it real

She got a brand new movie..bout giving up the bootie… she showed it all and nobody cared

And made her such a mess..when she didn’t get the press so she went and cut off all her hair

I said why, why, why haS it got to be such a big deal?

We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real

Better off keeping it real

[Harmonica solo]

I said why, why, why haS it got to be such a big deal?

We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real

Better off keeping it real

He said he didn’t do it.. they couldn’t hold him to it… he smiled and walked away a free man

The glove didn’t fit him…. the jury said acquit him…. It all worked out the way that he planned

But he Couldn’t live without it… he wrote a book about it.. yea everything he did that night

They didn’t get him for the crime…but he’s gonna do the time… cause he’s got to get back in the spotlight

I said why, why, why haS it got to be such a big deal?

We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real

I’ve come to the conclusion.. We’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real

Better off keeping it real

Oh we’re better off just keeping it real

Taylor Hicks Nineteen

Nineteen

The number on his back wore the captain of the high school football team

Took us all the way to state

Got a scholarship to play down in Tennessee

He could catch he could throw he could run he could go like you’ve never seen

Nineteen

But on the day those twin towers came down his whole world turned around

He told them all I can’t play ball there’s a war on now

He marched right in with a few good men and joined the marines

At nineteen

[chorus]

He’s a boy next door

He might of carried your bags at the grocery store

Now he’s somebody’s son in a hole with a gun in a foreign land

Trying to hold on to his American dream

At nineteen

There’s a sniper out there in the dark somewhere and a soldier is down

Need someone who can duck and run and get him out somehow

What one good man will raise his hand and take one for the team

How bout you nineteen?

[chorus]

He’s a boy next door

He might of carried your bags at the grocery store

Now he’s somebody’s son in a hole with a gun in a foreign land

Trying to hold on to his American dream

Nineteen

Nineteen

Brought him home today with a big parade down on main street

Gotta Purple Heart and a Silver Star solder gave a speech

Said he could catch he could throw he could run he’s the one that rescued me

…could have played for Tennessee

He was nineteen

He was only nineteen
