Track Name: Stronger
I’m stronger than I use to be
I’ve got a man who loves me (but)
More importantly I love myself
You can’t touch me with a 10 ft. pole

I’m stronger and I know how
To love my life and my family

I work hard for what’s mine
No regrets take my time
Do it right I will fight
For a foundation on a solid ground

I took a look inside
Tried to realize
What it is that makes this heart beat

I’m stronger and my heart is too
For that I must thank you
You made dig down deeper within my soul
I bet you didn’t think I’d come around

I’m stronger than I was before
Doing things on my own terms

Bow my head close my eyes
Say a prayer hold on tight
I have faith I have trust
Built my foundation on a solid ground

Take a look inside
Try to realize
What it is that makes your heart beat

I’m stronger than I use to be
I’ve got a man who loves me (and)

I work hard for what’s mine
No regrets take my time
Do it right I will fight
For a foundation on a solid ground

Take a look inside
Try to realize
What it is that makes your heart beat stronger

Stronger, stronger, stronger

I’m stronger than I use to be
I got a man that loves me

I work hard for what’s mine
No regrets take my time
Do it right I will fight
Bow my head close my eyes
Say a prayer hold on tight
I have faith
Track Name: Hickory Holler
I’m going down to Hickory Holler
Weatherman said rain tomorrow
If I have to beg or (borrow)
I’m going down to Hickory Holler

Underneath that live oak tree
Is where I fell and skinned my knee
We played hide and kiss and seek
In the old graveyard

Chorus

We took turns on riding mowers
Up the hill in our backyard
Momma loves the smell of flowers
Stop and picker her some

Chorus

Daddy’s home collecting goats
They jumped the fence “SURPRISE!”
Sweet iced tea and fresh tomatoes
Suppertime again

We took off down the old dirtroad
As fast as we could go
Storm’s a raging up ahead
It’s time to get back home

I’m going down to Hickory Holler
Weatherman said rain tomorrow
If I have to beg or borrow
I’m going back to Hickory Holler

“AAAAAHEEE!”

“Going back to Hickory Holler gunna get me some of them butter beans and rice.”

“Gonna go down there and get all my momma’s sugar.”

“Hickory Holler is a state of mind.”

“That’s right”

“Woo!”
Track Name: You Don't Love Me (Like You Use To)
You use to beat the sunshine to a kiss in the morning time
You use to hug my neck and tell me all your love was mine
But lately you don't hold me or look me in the eye
I've come to find that you're unkind you're not the staying type and

You don't love me like you use to
You have proved your love's untrue

You'll call and say your sorry from a barroom down the block and
Try to drown your party with a kiss and quick depart
I'm tired of feeling heartache when you kick a door that's locked
You've lost the key to my heart
It's gone for good don't start

You don't love me like you use to
You have proved your loves untrue

solo

You don't love me like you use to
You have proved your loves untrue

You don't love me like you use to
You have proved your loves untrue
Track Name: Burn Another Candle at Both Ends
Hey boy I know you're tired
You've been working late at night and
We've both been over due for some time
To go somewhere somewhere out under the moonlight where we can

Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle or two

Hey boy what's on your mind
When you brush your hair back and take a look in to my dark brown eyes
You know it's true I've been looking for somebody like you so I can

Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle or two

Take my hair down why don't you
Spin me around the dance floor
We're over due for a night where we can
Get lost in the moment on a crowded street
Take each other dancing on a quiet beach
Pull me to you closer until you feel my heart beat
Heartbeat

Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle at both ends
Burn another candle with you
Track Name: Only Turned You Down
Hey baby it's over between me and him
and I wish that it could have been years ago cuz you know I

Only turned you down for a fantasy
Only turned you down for a fool
I found out and now, I wanna make it up to you

Hey baby it's over between me and him
and I wish that I could have those years back again
cuz all of those nights that I held out for him
could have been holding on to you

You know I only turned you down for a fantasy
Only turned you down for a fool
Could we turn around and go back to that place, I wanna make it up to you

Hey baby it's over and I should have known
that what I felt in my heart and my bones
was worth so much more than a ring and a stone
that I stared at those nights, lying faithful and alone
what a fateful decision I made and I hope it's not too late
I wanna make it up to you, make it up to you
give you all the kisses I kept locked up so tight
I wanna give em all to you tonight

You know I only turned you down for a fantasy
Only turned you down for a fool
Could we turn around and I'll make it up to you

You know I only turned you down for a fantasy
Only turned you down for a fool
Could we turn around and go back to that place, I wanna make it up to you
Track Name: Tell Me
I've tried and I've tried to show you how I feel
Tell me oh tell me this love is real

Your old flannel shirt buckets of tears
Are all I have left since you disappeared
I even took off the necklace you bought me last year
The crazy thing is I still want you near

I've tried and I've tried to show you how I feel
Tell me oh tell me this love is real

Letters I wrote you with unbroken seals
I'm staying up late going through this ordeal
I use to be strong stronger than steal
Since you left me darlin the pain just won't heal

I've tried and I've tried to show you how I feel
Tell me oh tell me this love is real
Track Name: Can We Find Forgiveness?
Can we find forgiveness
With what we carry with us
Our hearts are the witness
Can we find forgiveness

Think of all those times
Being less than strong
Going down a path
You know the way is wrong
Do we moan and beg
Promising no more
Until we stray again and
Knock on satans door

Can we find forgiveness
With what we carry with us
Our hearts are the witness
Can we find forgiveness

String together sin
Stretched out far and wide
Before you see the speck
In someone else's eye
What if others we transgress
Might not be so kind and
With our final breath
There's nothing to decide

Can we find forgiveness
With what we carry with us
Our hearts are the witness
Can we find forgiveness
Track Name: Are You Ok Alone?
You you're out there on the road
So far away from home
That's just the way it is
You making your way through another town
Called me on the phone
To tell me that you miss me
You counted eighteen hundred and seventy five
Little white lines as they pass you by
You're one step closer but a million miles away
And you say

Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok are you ok alone
Do you think of me in the darkest night
In a candle lit world do you hold a light for me

Last night I laid in cold sheets again
Ridiculous thoughts running through my head
It be so much easier if you were here
It be easy be so easy if you were near
But that's not true
It's not so black and white
Some times you have to fight
For the things you love
And you say

Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok are you ok alone
Do you think of me in the darkest night
In a candle lit world do you hold a light for me

Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok are you ok alone

I'll be right there baby I'm coming home
I'll be right there baby I'm coming home
Keep thinking of me in the darkest night
In a candle lit world I hold a light for you

Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok are you ok alone
Are you ok baby I'm coming home
Are you ok are you ok alone
Track Name: Don't Cry Little Girl
Don't cry little girl
Your daddy's coming soon
There ain't nothing in the big bad world
That he can't see you through
You might be standing at the bottom of a mountain and you think that it's too steep to climb
You're going to get there little darling all good things in all good time

Don't cry little girl
You'll fly with out a net
There's so much new for you to do
It's not time to worry yet
To see the mountains through your eyes is a thing we could all probably use
But before you climbing to the top you've got to learn to tie your shoes

Don't cry little girl
No matter what you choose
Time is very hard to understand
It gets easier the more of it you loose
You might be standing at the bottom of a mountain and you think that it's too steep to climb
You're going to get there little darling all good things in all good time
Track Name: Long, Long Gone
When the train rolls through the station I'll be long long gone
When your eyes are barely waken in the early hours of morn
When that morning sun is breaking
While my ticket's being taken
Farewell my lover I'm gone long gone

Well I tried to do it right but it was wrong wrong wrong
When I held you in the night well I couldn't hold you long
For that morning sun was breaking but my hands were a shakin
Farewell my lover I'm gone long gone and

I'm gone long gone
I'm gone long gone
Farewell my lover I'm gone long gone

I'm gone long gone
I'm gone long gone
Farewell my lover I'm gone long gone

Farewell my love I'm gone long gone
Track Name: Stars
Stars fill up the sky like tears in my eyes sometimes they fall
Stars come and they go you see them you don't but oh when they glow
Darkness bends around each light that holds my heart and shapes the night
Stars shine bright tonight

Her eyes would tear up when she laughed and she would throw her head back
We could laugh at anything even if we were sad and
I so miss her now she's gone
She shaped my heart and she lives on
Stars shine bright tonight

As we spin around the sun we can only hope for
The chance to make it all slow down and love with more vigor cause
We will miss them when they're gone
So love them hard and love them strong
Stars shine bright tonight oh
Stars shine bright tonight
Stars shine bright tonight
