Lyrics - pg 10

You're Stronger Than Me, I Hate You, That Girl Who Waits on Tables, Better Off With the Blues, Somebody's Gonna Get That Girl, I'm Playing For You

"You're Stronger Than Me"

 

If you are sincere when you say you don't care
That our love is just a memory
If the love that we knew won't bother you
Darling you're stronger than me
For if still loving you means I'm weak, then I'm weak
For I still fall apart when we speak or we meet
If the love that we knew won't bother you
Darling you're stronger than me
If you can have fun with some other one
With no thought of what used to be
If it's easy to say that it's better this way
Darling you're stronger than me
For if still loving you means I'm weak, then I'm weak
For I still fall apart when we speak or we meet
If the love that we knew won't bother you
Darling you're stronger than me
Darling you're stronger than me

"I Hate You"

 

I hate you...oh, how I try to hate you
I get bitter every time you run through my mind
Between love and hate there's a little thin line
And I'm trying to hate you right out of my mind
Oh I hate you..each time I cry, I hate you
Little drops of anger fall from my eyes
You said that you loved me
Tell me, how could this fool be so blind
And I'm trying to hate you right out of my mind
Oh, ain't it funny how a heart that loved you one time
Could be filled with so much anger
For you and your kind
I hate you..oh how I try to hate you
I get bitter every time you run through my mind
Between love and hate, there's a little thin line
And I'm trying to hate you right out of my mind
I'm trying to hate you right out of my mind

"That Girl That Waits on Tables"

 

I watch her picking up their tips off the tables
And see them smile as she brings another round
That dress she's wearing shows she's all woman
And it reminds me that I had what they want now
That girl who waits on tables used to wait for me at home
And she waited til all her love was gone
I'm too late but I still worship the floor she's dancing on
That girl who waits on tables used to wait for me at home
I see her playing that old jukebox with their dimes
It's a song about a fool who did her wrong
And I'll wait for her again til closing time
But when she goes home tonight I'll be alone
That girl who waits on tables used to wait for me at home
And she waited til all her love was gone
I'm too late but I still worship the floor she's dancing on

That girl who waits on tables used to wait for me at home
That girl who waits on tables used to wait for me at home

"Better Off With the Blues"

 

Oh, now since you've been gone I've had time to myself
I haven't even tried to find somebody else
When you told me you were leaving
You know it almost came as good news
It may sound funny but it's true
I think I'm better off with the blues
Listen, I must admit that I miss you sometimes
Not a day goes by baby that you don't cross my mind
But at the same time I think of all the hell you put me through
And it's the lesser of two evils
I guess I'm better off with the blues
Chorus:
You know someday I'm gonna wake up and these blues will be gone
And I'll forget about you and the way you did me wrong
But if you had stayed I'd be dead in my tracks
You know I still love you baby but I sho' don't want you back, no no
Oh, tonight I'm gonna go down to the sad site of town
Sit there by myself and just start pourin' 'em down

And I'll know just what to say
When someone asks about you
I'll say yeah we had a good time
But I think I'm better off with the blues yeah
I said woman if I had to choose
I think I'm better off with the blues yeah

"Somebody's Gonna Get That Girl"


Step right up now and place your bets down
Put your money on love to win
Cause there's a good chance that there'll be romance
Hey, look what just walked in
The kinda lady who drives you crazy
Can make a man do anything
So play your cards right this could be your night
I know this time its a sure thing
Chorus:
Somebody's gonna get that girl (somebody)
Somebody's gonna make her happy
Somebody's gonna change her world
Someone will set her heart free
Somebody's gonna be me
Now it's your move, whatcha gotta lose
Go on and give it all you've got
Cause when the dealin's done
I'll be the lucky one
So come on step up take your best shot
Repeat Chorus
The first time I saw her I said
Repeat Chorus (twice)

"I'm Playing For You"

 


The show is over.....the footlights are dim
The roar of the crowd is faded again
It's just me and my eighty-eight ivory friend
Playing for you
Maybe you've heard me on the radio
Maybe he was with you and holding you close
I can't help but wonder if somehow you know
I'm playing for you
Bridge:
You always said.....someday I'd make it
Well, I made it.....but it cost me you
Now every night there's part of all the dreams we had
in every song that I do
Repeat Bridge:
The show is over...the stage is bare
The crowd is gone now and they're folding the chairs
But I'll keep singing my heart out what else can I do
I'm playing for you
I'm playing for you (repeat 3 times)
