Desire, Lying Here With Linda On My Mind, 

"Desire"

 

I wake up with it each morning take it to bed every night
I feel it taking control when I turn out the light
Just like a lonesome coyote just like a dog on the prowl
I got this burning inside makes me wanna howl
Chorus:
Every move that you make is fueling the fire
Every ounce of my soul is feeling desire
From the day that I met you the first time I looked in those eyes
I felt my knees getting weak ok felt my temperature rise
You're all I taste in my coffee you're all I dream when I sleep
You're every whisper I hear everything I can see
Repeat Chorus
I want you to want me too
Can't think of nothing but bein' with you
Repeat Chorus

"Lying Here (With Linda On My Mind)"

 

Now I'm lying here with Linda on my mind
And next to me, my soon to be the one I left behind
And Lord it's killing me to see her cr..yyy
She knows I'm lying here beside her with Linda on my mind
Yes I know that I once loved her
And I placed no one above her
And I never thought I'd ever set her free
But it just wasn't in my plans
The way Linda squeezed my hand
The first time that I held her close as she danced with me
She said I've loved you for such a long time
But you're married to a friend of mine
And I try hard to never let it show
But my love for you is stronger
And I can't hide it any longer
And so I thought I'd better let you know
Now I'm lying here wiith Linda on my mi..innnd
And next to me..my soon to be..the one I left behind
And lord it's killing me to see her cry...yyy
She knows I'm lying here beside her with Linda on 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)
