Taylor Hicks Heaven Knows

You took my heart, baby,

And you broke it in a thousand pieces

I may not have been much to you,

But every man still needs a reason

See, I tried so hard to love you girl

Paid attention to your every need

And right now my soul is crying out

Cause you mean so much to me

I’m crying “How you say goodbye so easily?

Why you take your lovin’ so far from me?”

Now I’m calling out desperately,

“Won’t you cut me some slack?”

Heaven knows I did everything you asked me to

Gave you all my love, but nothing was enough for you

I got down on my knees, prayed for you to come around,

But my prayers went unanswered ’cause you always let me down

Heaven knows I tried

Heaven knows I tried

Now what kind of man do you consider me

When I work from 5 to 5,

When I come home I put my time in, girl,

Just to keep our love alive?

Honey, I tried so hard to please you

Because you know how much I need you

Oh girl, my soul is crying out

And I’m on my bended knee crying,

“How you say goodbye so easily?

Why you take your lovin’ so far from me?”

Now I’m calling out desperately,

“Won’t you cut me some slack?”

Heaven knows I did everything you asked me to

Gave you all my love, but nothing was enough for you

I got down on my knees, prayed for you to come around,

But my prayers went unanswered ’cause you always let me down

Heaven knows I tried

Heaven knows I tried

Ever since that day you left me, girl,

I haven’t had a wink of sleep

’cause I’ve been crying all night long, girl

Don’t you know what you mean to me?

How you say goodbye so easily?

Why you take your lovin’ so far from me?

Now I’m calling out desperately,

“Won’t you cut me some slack?”

Heaven knows I did everything you asked me to

Gave you all my love, but nothing was enough for you

I got down on my knees, prayed for you to come around

But my prayers went unanswered, ’cause you always let me down

Heaven knows I tried

Heaven knows I tried

It’s raining tears tonight

Heaven knows I tried

Taylor Hicks Just To Feel That Way

I feel you letting go

Holding on, caught in between

Could you risk the pain

Take the chance your heart might bleed

Just to feel that way

Can’t keep running in circles

I’m standing right here

Could you rewrite the story

But trade all the tears

Oh it’s not too late to feel that way

Take a walk on the wire

I won’t let you go

We’ll follow the streetlights

Down this jagged road

We’ll break it all open

Finding our way

We might end up broken and wounded

But baby it’s worth it

for even one day

Just to feel that way

Let this moment unravel

and we’ll be alright

The world might be gone tomorrow

But we’re here tonight

Oh it’s not too late just to feel that way

Let’s walk on the wire

I won’t let you go

We’ll follow the streetlights

Down this jagged road

We’ll break it all open

Finding our way

We might end up broken and wounded

But baby it’s worth it

For even one day

Just to fall apart

I don’t care

I’m not going anywhere

Without you being here by my side

Yeah I just don’t feel right

We’ll follow the streetlights

Let’s walk on the wire

I won’t let you go

We’ll follow the streetlights

Down this jagged road

We’ll break it all open

Finding our way

We might end up broken and wounded

But baby it’s worth it

For even one day

For even one day

Just to feel that way

Just to feel that way

Taylor Hicks Once Upon A Lover Of Mine

She was my only one

Loved me till kingdom come

She took me to that place I’ve never been before

Her body in the night

Revealed by candle light

Her spanish eyes were shining like diamonds on the shore.

I need her

Oh my senorita

Love was much so much sweeter

With you in my life

Now I know what my heart lacks

Every time I think back

To once upon a lover of mine.

I should have read her

Before that letter

I should have never let her get inside my heart

She led a gypsy life

Disappeared into the night

I miss those spanish eyes lighting up the dark

I need her oh my senorita

Love was so much sweeter

Wtih you in my life

Now I know what my heart lacks

Every time I think back

To once upon a lover of mine

The moonlight shadows fell

When underneath her spell

Back then when all was well

Can’t get her off my mind

Comes back a thousand times

Found out that love was blind

Once upon a lover of mine

I need her

Oh my senorita

Love was so much sweeter

With you in my life

God knows that I miss her

Her name I still whisper

How I love to kiss her just one more time

Now I know what my heart lacks

Every time I think back

To once upon a lover of mine.

Taylor Hicks I Live On A Battlefield

I live on a battle field

Surrounded by the ruins of the love we built

And then destroyed between us

The smoke has cleared

As I stumble through the rubble

I’m a dazed seeing double

And I’m a truly mystified

My new home

Has a shallow feel

With tears and muddy waters

And bits of broken heart

All around

There is desolation

Scenes of a devastation

Of love been torn apart

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

The one wear not one single drop of blood has spilled

Is no less a horrifying

Sweet memories memories

Of a bygone situation

And now shattered lord and battered

Lives scattered around

My new home

Has a shallow feel

With tears and muddy waters

And bits of broken heart

All around

There is desolation

Scenes of devastation

Of love been torn apart

I live on a battlefield

My new home

Is a shallow feel

With tears and muddy waters

And bits of broken heart

All around

There is desolation

Scenes of devastation

Of love been torn apart

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

I live on a battlefield

Taylor Hicks Georgia

The whole day through

Just an old sweet song keeps

Well, well, well, well Georgia-Georgia

Taylor Hicks Soul Thing

I’ve been traveling all these years,

Just barely getting by.

The road can be your friend

Or the devil in disguise.

When the tough get going,

The muses visit me.

Yet in soft, low tones,

They always say to me,

Say to me,

“It ain’t no groove thing,

It ain’t no country twang,

It’s a simple refrain;

It’s a soul thang.” [2x]

Where the city street meets the county road,

Where the sun is nice and warm,

No matter how long I may roam,

This song still takes us home,

Takes us home.

Now we’ll tell you about these times,

When the blues come out to play,

And jazz leaves her number…

It’s funny, she always says:

“It ain’t no groove thing,

It ain’t no country twang,

It’s a simple refrain;

It’s a soul thang.” [2x]

Now I’ll tell you about these times,

When the blues come out to play,

And jazz leaves her number…

It’s funny, she always says:

“Well, the city lights fly by me,

As their eyes are getting heavy.

We’re sending our love over telephone wire.

These days getting lonelier by the mile…by the mile.”

It ain’t no groove thing,

It ain’t no country twang,

It’s a simple refrain;

It’s a soul thang. [2x]

It ain’t no groove thing,

Yeah, ain’t no country twang,

It’s a simple refrain;

It’s a soul thang. [2x]

Taylor Hicks New Found Freedom

New found freedom I’m leaving the past behind

New found freedom Making up for lost time

Dug a little deeper Moved it on down the line

Must have been sleeping it’s about time I opened my eyes.

When I walk I walk with confidence

I hold my head up high When I talk

I’ve got a positive sense Of who I am inside

New found freedom Gonna spread my wings and fly.

It’s no secret where I’ve been before

Turned that corner Standing at the front door

Starting down a new road Leaving the other side

Gonna release it Breaking away the ties that bind.

When I walk I walk with confidence

I hold my head up high When I talk

I’ve got a positive sense Of who I am inside

New found freedom Let the Light be my life.

New found freedom Gonna spread my wings and fly

And the earth shook That’s all it took

To make a change in me It’s a new way

A new day Things ain’t what they used to be.

New found Freedom Let the Light live in my life

New found freedom Gonna spread my wings and fly

New found Freedom Let the Light be my life

New found freedom Gonna spread my wings and fly

New found Freedom Let the Light be my life

New found freedom Gonna spread my wings and fly

New found freedom Starting down a new road

Let the Light be my life Standing at the front door

New found freedom Gonna spread my wings and fly

Spread my wings and fly

Taylor Hicks Maybe You Should

I look around this room

And feel the pool of tender years

Before we knew enough

To be afraid of all our fears

Baby there was no corner

We couldn’t fight our way out of

And every thought of leaving

Left us leaning on this love

We had it all you know

Before you started letting go

If you can walk away tonight

Give it up for good

Throw it all away like we swore we never wood

If you can tear down everything we built

Deny everything we felt

I guess there’s a lot I misunderstood

If you can leave here tonight

Baby maybe you should

Baby I just keep on seeing

All that moonlight shining down

The way our love could light up

This little Alabama town

So I keep holding on to hope

Still finding reasons to believe

Cause all I ever got from you

Was always just enough for me

But if it’s not for you

Do what you gotta do

If you can walk away tonight

Give it up for good

Throw it all away like we swore we never wood

If you can tear down everything we built

Deny everything we felt

I guess there is a lot I misunderstood

If you can leave here tonight

Baby maybe you should

If you can leave here tonight

Baby maybe you should

Taylor Hicks The Runaround

It’s a whole new education

I’m learning from you all the time

There’s no need for explanation

Your examples do just fine

I’m getting an A in Broken Hearts

I got my degree in Crying

You tell me, “It’s not fair,”

but I am so gone

Oh, I loved you

Why’d you do me so wrong?

And to think I sat there

Singing you a love song

I’d give you everything

All I get from you is your runaround

You don’t like these accusations

but I have seen with my own eyes

the compromising situations

as you walk around in your disguise

And I aced at Broken Hearts

I got my degree in Crying

You tell me, “It’s not fair,”

but I am so gone

Oh, I loved you

Why’d you do me so wrong?

And to think I sat there

singing you a love song

Oh, I’d give you everything

All I get from you is your runaround

I aced at Broken Hearts

I got my degree in Crying

You tell me “It’s not fair,”

but I am so gone

Oh, I loved you

Why’d you do me so wrong?

And to think I sat there

singing you a love song

I’d give you everything

All I get from you is your runaround

ooh yeah

no more lovin’ on the run

no more just having fun

ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

Taylor Hicks The Distance

Saw an old friend yesterday

Guess we both had too much to say

Seems we’ve taken different sides

All caught up in politics and pride

If we can get beyond the blame

I know we would see we are still the same

The distance between us will fade

There will be no distance between us someday

In that distant land across the sea

There are people just like you and me

They just want to see their children grow

And feel the same love we all know

When we get beyond all the hurt and blame

And realize we are all the same

The distance between us will fade

There’ll be no distance between us someday

We can rise up

Join each other

We can build a bridge

Brother to brother

Take the steps

We need to take

To get us to a better place

Where the distance between us will fade

There will be no distance between us one of these days

One of these days

We can rise up

Join each other

We can build a bridge

Brother to brother

Take the steps

We need to take

To get us to a better place

Where the distance between us fades away

There will be no distance between us one of these days

One of these days

We can rise up

Join each other

We can build a bridge

Brother to brother

No distance

Between us

One of these days
