Track Name: A Foolish Thing
A Foolish Thing

You took the china and you made a clean break
You said "don't worry baby, everybody makes mistakes".
Cause the heart can be a foolish thing

I tried to hold you Just one more time
I told myself "man everything'll work out fine".
But the heart can be a foolish thing

The heart can pull people together
Make you crazy with one kiss
We hope it's love but we don't know
Whether to stand back a bit or take the risk
Cause the heart can be a foolish thing

You drove away as I waved bye bye
It's funny how the bad times ain't what made me cry
Cause the heart can be a foolish thing
Track Name: Ain't You Glad
Ain't You Glad

I got one foot out the door
I got one foot in
One foot says we gotta go
The other foot say let's do it again
I've got half a mind to stay here
The other half don't know
The half that does the talkin'
Is all mouth and no show
Ain't you glad

My wallet got stolen
And then I got mugged
They took my watch and ring
Then they beat me up
Gridlock on the highway
Stitches in my lip
Man gave me the finger
And my mind began to slip
Ain't you glad

Ain't you glad, you ain't me
Ain't you glad, you ain't me

I entertained a fantasy that had me aiming lasers
At every car around me and the rubber red necked gazers
Before the last picture and the red switch is thrown
A chemical short circuit and the fuses were blown
But in the warmth of the TV stiffening in a chair
I know nothing will happen and no one will find me there
Ain't you glad

Ain't you glad, you ain't me
Ain't you glad, you ain't me
Track Name: Like A River
Like a River

The sun came up on a beautiful day
Birds were singing but I couldn't stay
I went downstairs and tried to write a note
I threw it away when I read what I wrote
You were still sleeping
On your side of the bed
When the memories came rushing
Like a river into my head

I went outside to my beat up old car
I had to do some magic trying to get it to start
I was headed south out to the interstate
Trying to beat the traffic before it got too late
I was finally leaving like I always said
When the memories came rushing
Like a river into my head

The memories come rushing
Like a river into my head
Thinking about all the things we never said
Memories that will haunt me until I'm dead
Bittersweet movies of the life we lead

Well I made it out to the county line
I ordered up some coffee and the Drive and Dine
I don't know why I decided to call
You were standing sleepy by the phone in the hall
You said you were dreaming that I was there in bed
When the memories came rushing
Like a river into my head

The memories come rushing
Like a river into my head
Thinking about all the things we never said
Memories that will haunt me until I'm dead
Bittersweet movies of the life we lead
Track Name: True Love (Nobody Knows How to Talk About)
True Love

How come everybody seems to understand you
When you talk about the things that you want to do
We talk about work and the money we make
We talk all day 'how much the governments takes
We could tell our secrets to total strangers
But talk about love and we start to clam up
Cause nobody knows how to talk about true love

We talk about our families and where we were born
We talk about leaving and how we are torn
We talk about lovers and the way they kiss
And the expectations that seem to miss
Cause we're always expecting fantasies
But nobody knows how to talk about true love

Well I'm lying on the floor with a fever to know
The secret of romance and the incandescent glow
The power of illusion that can lead you astray
Holds no candle to true love ways
But nobody knows how to talk about true love

I was talking to the loneliest boy in the world
He said he was looking for a lucky girl
He said there's got to be someone out there for me
Someone who can love what I'm about to be
Cause nobody knows how to talk about true love
Track Name: We Got A Deal
We Got a Deal

I've had all the bad days I'm ever gonna have
They're all behind me now that we have got a deal
No more lonely nights to pull me apart
I rest easy now that we have got a deal

She loves me, she loves me not
I don't wonder about it
We go a deal to stay together
It makes a difference
Now that we have got a deal

Every day I fall more deeply in love
It's so simple now that we have got a deal
I'm in a dream that feels so real
She's all around me now that we have got a deal.

She loves me, she loves me not
I don't wonder about it
We go a deal to stay together
It makes a difference
Now that we have got a deal.

We got a deal that nothing can erase
We made a promise pressed face to face.

She loves me, she loves me not
I don't wonder about it
We go a deal to stay together
It makes a difference
Now that we have got a deal.
Track Name: You Married Men
You Married Men

Well she got mixed up with a married man
She was crazy 'bout him but she didn't understand
When he said he liked the married life
And he felt shook up cause he loved his wife.

He used to meet her at the oddest times
In the weirdest places for lover's crimes
It was thrillingly romantic till they felt the despair
That came from knowing it could go nowhere.

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.

She made him promise to be her friend
But their days as lovers had to end
It was so much easier said than done
No matter what she said, she knew he was the one.

He said she'd always be his fantasy and
He'd never forget the girl he ran to see
But he felt like a fool for being untrue
It was something he never thought he could do.

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.

When she left town she never said a word
She wondered how he felt when he finally heard
Did he think of her in the middle of the night
Could he forget her now that she was out of sight?

He went back to how things were and
Eventually he told his wife about her
But sometimes he sees her in the back of his mind
And closes his eyes as if love were blind

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.
Track Name: All Over You
All Over You

I don't know where you've been
hanging out these days
I hear stories about how you
have been changing your ways
And I wonder to myself
Could they all be true
Well I guess it doesn't matter baby
Since I'm all over you

Do you mind if I ask you
How you've been since then
You know I used to think that we
Would get together again
But I let it go and I know
That you did too
Well I guess it doesn't matter baby
Since I'm all over you

Well you fell on your knees
And you told me the reasons
Why you had to leave
And I picked up the pieces never believing
That I'd ever wade through this grief
It was only the passing of time
That pulled me through

Well I would've bet money against it baby
But I'm all over you
Track Name: Can Your herat Be Touched
Can You Heart be Touched

Well I've been waiting for you to come around
Walking these streets all over town
Wonderin’ if you're ever gonna make up your mind
To love me baby or leave me behind.

Some people say you shouldn't wait too long
You've gotta make a move while the feeling is strong
I ain't trying to mess you up
I only want to know if your heart can be touched

I want more than memories I've had enough
I want a girl who still believes in being loved
I want to know can your heart be touched

Maybe it's too early to ask you all of this
Come on baby put yourself in your kiss
You say you can't help think it's all a game
Well let me tell you baby I don't feel that way

I want more than memories I've had enough
I want a girl who still believes in being loved
I want to know can your heart be touched
