Lyrics

  • 1. Flat On The Floor

    (Brett James, Ashley Monroe)

    CHORUS:
    I’M FLAT ON THE FLOOR WITH MY HEAD DOWN LOW
    WHERE THE SKY CAN’T RAIN ON ME ANYMORE
    DON’T KNOCK ON MY DOOR
    ‘CAUSE I WON’T COME
    I’M HIDING FROM THE STORM ‘TIL THE DAMAGE GETS DONE

    BABY, BABY, BABY, BABY TELL ME WHY
    YOU GOTTA MAKE ME, MAKE ME, MAKE ME, MAKE ME, MAKE ME CRY, OH LORD
    IF I’VE TOLD YOU ONCE I’VE TOLD YOU A THOUSAND TIMES
    YOU CAN’T KNOCK ME OFF MY FEET
    WHEN I’M ALREADY ON MY KNEES….’CAUSE

    REPEAT CHORUS

    BABY, BABY, BABY, BABY TELL ME HOW
    YOU THINK YOU’RE GONNA LIVE WITHOUT MY LOVE NOW
    I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU GOTTA KEEP COMING AROUND
    CREEPIN’ UP MY STREET
    BOY, YOU CAN’T BOTHER ME

    REPEAT CHORUS

    (bridge)
    YOU AIN’T GONNA GET TO ME TONIGHT
    I’LL LAY RIGHT HERE ‘TIL IT ALL ROLLS THROUGH
    I AIN’T GONNA RAISE MY BODY
    ‘TIL THERE AIN’T NO SIGN, ‘TIL THERE AIN’T NO SIGN, ‘TIL THERE AIN’T NO SIGN OF YOU

    REPEAT CHORUS X3

  • 2. All-American Girl

    (Carrie Underwood / Kelley Lovelace / Ashley Gorley)

    SINCE THE DAY THEY GOT MARRIED
    HE’D BEEN PRAYING FOR A LITTLE BABY BOY
    SOMEONE HE COULD TAKE FISHIN’ THROW THE FOOTBALL AND
    BE HIS PRIDE AND JOY
    HE COULD ALREADY SEE HIM
    HOLDING THAT TROPHY TAKING HIS TEAM TO STATE
    BUT WHEN THE NURSE CAME IN WITH A LITTLE PINK BLANKET
    ALL THOSE BIG DREAMS CHANGED….AND

    CHORUS
    NOW HE’S WRAPPED AROUND HER FINGER
    SHE’S THE CENTER OF HIS WHOLE WORLD AND
    HIS HEART BELONGS TO THAT SWEET LITTLE
    BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, PERFECT
    ALL-AMERICAN GIRL

    SIXTEEN SHORT YEARS LATER
    SHE WAS FALLING FOR THE SENIOR FOOTBALL STAR
    BEFORE YOU KNEW IT HE WAS DROPPIN’ PASSES
    SKIPPING PRACTICE JUST TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH HER
    THE COACH SAID “HEY, SON WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM
    TELL ME HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND”
    DADDY SAID “YOU’LL LOSE YOUR FREE RIDE TO COLLEGE
    BOY YOU BETTER TELL HER GOODBYE”…BUT

    REPEAT CHORUS

    BRIDGE
    AND WHEN THEY GOT MARRIED
    AND DECIDED TO HAVE ONE OF THEIR OWN
    SHE SAID “BE HONEST TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT”
    AND HE SAID “HONEY YOU OUGHT TO KNOW”
    A SWEET LITTLE BEAUTIFUL
    ONE JUST LIKE YOU
    A BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, PERFECT
    ALL-AMERICAN

    REPEAT CHORUS

  • 3. So Small

    Carrie Underwood
    Luke Laird
    Hillary Lindsey

    WHAT YOU GOT IF YOU AIN’T GOT LOVE
    THE KIND THAT YOU JUST WANT TO GIVE AWAY
    IT’S OK TO OPEN UP
    GO AHEAD AND LET THE LIGHT SHINE THROUGH
    I KNOW IT’S HARD ON A RAINY DAY
    YOU WANT TO SHUT THE WORLD OUT AND JUST BE LEFT ALONE

    BUT DON’T RUN OUT ON YOUR FAITH…..’CAUSE

    SOMETIMES THAT MOUNTAIN YOU’VE BEEN CLIMBIN
    IS JUST A GRAIN OF SAND
    AND WHAT YOU’VE BEEN OUT THERE SEARCHIN’ FOR FOREVER
    IS IN YOUR HANDS
    AND WHEN YOU FIGURE OUT LOVE IS ALL THAT MATTERS AFTER ALL
    IT SURE MAKES EVERYTHING ELSE SEEM SO SMALL

    IT’S SO EASY TO GET LOST INSIDE
    A PROBLEM THAT SEEMS SO BIG AT THE TIME
    IT’S LIKE A RIVER THAT’S SO WIDE
    IT SWALLOWS YOU WHOLE
    WHILE YOU’RE SITTIN’ ‘ROUND THINKIN’ ‘BOUT WHAT YOU CAN’T CHANGE
    AND WORRYING ABOUT ALL THE WRONG THINGS

    TIME’S FLYIN’ BY, MOVIN’ SO FAST
    YOU BETTER MAKE IT COUNT CAUSE YOU CAN’T GET IT BACK

    SOMETIMES THAT MOUNTAIN YOU’VE BEEN CLIMBIN’
    IS JUST A GRAIN OF SAND
    AND WHAT YOU’VE BEEN OUT THERE SEARCHIN’ FOR FOREVER
    IS IN YOUR HANDS
    AND WHEN YOU FIGURE OUT LOVE IS ALL THAT MATTERS AFTER ALL
    IT SURE MAKES EVERYTHING ELSE SEEM SO SMALL

    REPEAT CHORUS

  • 4. Just A Dream

    WRITERS: STEVE MCEWAN
    HILLARY LINDSEY
    GORDIE SAMPSON

    IT WAS TWO WEEKS AFTER THE DAY SHE TURNED EIGHTEEN
    ALL DRESSED IN WHITE, GOING TO THE CHURCH THAT NIGHT
    SHE HAD HIS BOX OF LETTERS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT
    SIXPENCE IN HER SHOE, SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE
    AND WHEN THE CHURCH DOORS OPENED UP WIDE
    SHE PUT HER VEIL DOWN TRYING TO HIDE THE TEARS
    OH SHE JUST COULDN’T BELIEVE IT
    SHE HEARD THE TRUMPETS FROM THE MILITARY BAND
    AND THE FLOWERS FELL OUT OF HER HAND

    (CHORUS)
    BABY WHY’D YOU LEAVE ME WHY’D YOU HAVE TO GO
    I WAS COUNTING ON FOREVER NOW I’LL NEVER KNOW
    I CAN’T EVEN BREATHE
    IT’S LIKE I’M LOOKING FROM A DISTANCE STANDING IN THE BACKGROUND
    EVERYBODY’S SAYING HE’S NOT COMING HOME NOW
    THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING TO ME
    THIS IS JUST A DREAM

    THE PREACHER MAN SAID “LET US BOW OUR HEADS AND PRAY
    LORD PLEASE LIFT HIS SOUL AND HEAL THIS HURT”
    AND THEN THE CONGREGATION ALL STOOD UP AND SANG
    THE SADDEST SONG THAT SHE EVER HEARD
    AND THEN THEY HANDED HER A FOLDED UP FLAG
    AND SHE HELD ON TO ALL SHE HAD LEFT OF HIM
    OH AND WHAT COULD’VE BEEN.
    AND THEN THE GUNS RANG ONE LAST SHOT
    AND IT FELT LIKE A BULLET IN HER HEART

    (REPEAT CHORUS X2)

    THIS IS JUST A DREAM

  • 5. Get Out Of This Town

    WRITERS: STEVE MCEWAN
    HILLARY LINDSEY
    GORDIE SAMPSON

    GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT INSIDE OF MY HEAD
    THERE’S A BAG PACKED UP AT THE FOOT OF MY BED
    YOU SAY THE WORD BABY IM ALL SET
    WE’LL COVER OUR TRACKS TELL A COUPLE WHITE LIES
    MAKE SURE WE’VE GOT A GOOD ALIBI
    AND BY THE TIME THEY CATCH ON
    WE’LL BE OUT OF THEIR SIGHT

    LONG GONE BABY

    CHORUS
    LETS GET OUT OF THIS TOWN TONIGHT
    NOTHIN’ BUT DUST IN THE SHADOWS
    GONE BY THE MORNING LIGHT
    SOMEWHERE
    WE WON’T EVER GET CAUGHT EVER BE FOUND
    BABY LET’S JUST GET OUT OF THIS TOWN

    DONT NEED DIRECTIONS DONT NEED A MAP
    IF WE GET LOST I’LL BE GOOD WITH THAT
    YEAH, WE’LL FIND A WAY TO MAKE THE TIME PASS
    WINDOWS ROLLED DOWN WITH THE HEAT ON HIGH
    STARS ALL ALIGNED IN A RUNAWAY SKY
    HOLDING MY HAND AS THE MILES ROLL BY

    LONG GONE BABY

    BRIDGE
    IF WE LEAVE TONIGHT AND DRIVE FAST ENOUGH
    ALL OUR TROUBLES WILL BE JUST LIKE US
    LONG GONE BABY

    REPEAT CHORUS

  • 6. Crazy Dreams

    (UNDERWOOD/DEAN/VERGES)

    HELLO, YOU LONGSHOTS, YOU DARK HORSE RUNNERS
    HAIRBRUSH SINGERS, DASHBOARD DRUMMERS
    HELLO, YOU WILD MAGNOLIAS JUST WAITING TO BLOOM
    THERE’S A LITTLE BIT OF ALL THAT
    INSIDE OF ME AND YOU
    THANK GOD EVEN CRAZY DREAMS COME TRUE

    I’VE STOOD AT THE BOTTOM OF SOME WALLS I THOUGHT I COULDN’T CLIMB
    FELT LIKE CINDARELLA AT THE BALL JUST RUNNING OUT OF TIME
    SO I KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO BE AFRAID
    THINK THAT IT’S ALL GONNA SLIP AWAY
    HOLD ON, HOLD ON

    HERE’S TO YOU FREE SOULS, YOU FIREFLY CHASERS
    TREE CLIMBERS, PORCH SWINGERS, AIR GUITAR PLAYERS
    HERE’S TO YOU FEARLESS DANCERS
    SHAKING WALLS IN YOUR BEDROOMS
    THERE’S A LOT OF WONDER LEFT INSIDE OF ME AND YOU
    THANK GOD EVEN CRAZY DREAMS COME TRUE

    NEVER LET A BAD DAY BE ENOUGH
    TO GO AND TALK YOU INTO GIVING UP
    SOMETIMES EVERYBODY FEELS LIKE YOU, FEELS LIKE YOU, JUST LIKE YOU

    I’VE MET SOME GO GETTERS, SOME DIFFERENCE MAKERS
    SMALL TOWN HEROES AND BIG CHANCE TAKERS
    I’VE MET SOME YOUNG HEARTS WITH SOMETHING TO PROVE
    HERE’S TO YOU LONGSHOTS, YOU DARK HORSE RUNNERS
    HAIRBRUSH SINGERS AND DASHBOARD DRUMMERS
    HERE’S TO YOU WILD MAGNOLIAS JUST WAITING TO BLOOM
    THERE’S A LITTLE BUT OF ALL THAT INSIDE OF ME AND YOU
    THANK GOD EVEN CRAZY DREAMS COME TRUE

    THANK GOD EVEN CRAZY DREAMS COME TRUE

  • 7. I Know You Won’t

    (Steve McEwan/Wendell Mobley/Neil Thrasher)

    I know you don’t mean to be
    Mean to me
    ‘Cause when you want to you can make me feel like we belong
    We belong
    Lately, you make me feel all I am
    Is a backup plan
    I say I’m done and then you smile at me and I forget
    Everything I said
    I buy into those eyes
    And into your lies

    You say you’ll call
    But I know you
    You say you’re comin’ home
    But I know you
    You say you’ll call
    But I know you won’t
    You say you’ll call
    But I know you won’t

    I wish you were where you’re supposed to be
    Close to me
    But here I am just starin’ at this candle burnin’ out
    Still no sound
    Of footsteps on my stairs
    Or you’re voice anywhere

    You say you’ll call
    But I know you
    You say you’re comin’ home
    But I know you
    You say you’ll call
    But I know you won’t
    You say you’ll call
    But I know you won’t

    (repeat chorus)

  • 8. Last Name

    Carrie Underwood
    Luke Laird
    Hillary Lindsey

    Last night I got served a little bit too much of that poison baby
    Last night I did things I’m not proud of and I got a little crazy
    Last night I met a guy on the dance floor and I let him call me baby

    Chorus
    And I don’t even know his last name
    Oh my Mama would be so ashamed
    It started off “Hey, Cutie where you from?”
    And then it turned into “Oh, no, what have I done?”
    And I don’t even know his last name

    We left the club right around three o’clock in the morning
    His pinto sittin there in the parking lot, well it should’ve been a warning
    I had no clue what I was getting into so I blame it on the Cuervo
    Oh, where did my manners go?

    Chorus

    Today I woke up thinking ‘bout Elvis somewhere in Vegas I’m not sure
    How I got here or how this ring on my left hand just appeared outta nowhere
    I gotta go, I take the chips and the pinto and hit the road they say what happens here stays here all of this’ll disappear …there’s just one little problem

    I don’t even know my last name
    Oh my Mama would be so ashamed
    It started off “Hey, Cutie where are you from?”
    Turned into “Oh no what have I done?”
    I don’t even know my last name

  • 9. You Won’t Find This

    WRITERS: TOM SHAPIRO/CATHY DENNIS

    DID YOU CHECK THE TIRES
    PUT GAS IN THE CAR
    DON’T THINK YOU’LL NEED TOO MUCH ‘CAUSE YOU AIN’T GONNA GET THAT FAR
    DID YOU PACK THE GOOD TIMES
    DON’T FORGET A MAP
    JUST IN CASE THE ROUTE YOU TAKE ISN’T THERE TO TAKE YOU BACK

    (CHORUS)
    YOU CAN HOLD ANY GIRL THAT YOU LIKE
    FALL IN LOVE WHEN IT’S EASY AT NIGHT
    BUT YOU’LL WAKE UP WONDERING WHY
    SHE AIN’T EVER SOMETHING BETTER
    WHEN YOU’RE LOST AND YOU’VE RUN OUT OF ROAD
    FIND WHAT I ALREADY KNOW
    IN THE END CLOSE IS ALL THERE IS
    BUT YOU WON’T FIND THIS
    NO YOU WON’T FIND THIS

    NOW THERE’S ONCE IN A LIFETIME
    AND THERE’S ONCE IN A WHILE
    AND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO IS ABOUT A MILLION MILES
    OH YOU MIGHT GET LUCKY
    WHILE THE MOON IS LOOKING ON
    BUT IN THE TRUTH OF THE MORNING THE STARS WILL BE LONG GONE

    YOU CAN HOLD ANY GIRL THAT YOU LIKE
    FALL IN LOVE WHEN IT’S EASY AT NIGHT
    BUT YOU’LL WAKE UP WONDERING WHY
    SHE AIN’T EVER SOMETHING BETTER
    WHEN YOU’RE LOST AND YOU’VE RUN OUT OF ROAD
    FIND WHAT I ALREADY KNOW
    IN THE END CLOSE IS ALL THERE IS
    BUT YOU WON’T FIND THIS

    YOU CAN HOLD ANY GIRL THAT YOU LIKE
    FALL IN LOVE WHEN IT’S EASY AT NIGHT
    BUT YOU’LL WAKE UP WONDERING WHY
    SHE AIN’T EVER SOMETHING BETTER
    WHEN YOU’RE LOST AND YOU’VE RUN OUT OF ROAD
    FIND WHAT I ALREADY KNOW
    IN THE END CLOSE IS ALL THERE IS
    OH, IN THE END, IT’S ME YOU’RE GONNA MISS
    ‘CAUSE YOU WON’T FIND THIS
    NO, YOU WON’T FIND THIS

  • 10. I Told You So

    Suppose I called you up tonight
    And told you that I love you
    And suppose I said I want to come back home
    And suppose I cried and said I think I finally learned my lesson
    And I'm tired of spending all my time alone
    If I told you that I realized you're all I ever wanted
    And it's killing me to be so far away
    Would you tell my that you love me too
    And would we cry together
    Or would you simply laugh at me and say...

    Chorus
    I told you so, I told you so
    I told you some day you'd come crawling back
    And asking me to take you in
    I told you so, but you had to go
    Now I've found somebody new
    And you will never break my heart in two again

    If I got down on my knees
    And told you I was yours forever
    Would you get down on yours too and take my hand
    Would we get that old-time feeling
    Would we laugh and talk for hours
    The way we did when our love first began
    Would you tell me that you've missed me too
    And that you've been so lonely
    And you've waited for the day that I returned
    And we'd live and love forever
    And that I'm your one and only
    Or would you say the tables finally turned
    And would you say...

  • 11. The More Boys I Meet

    WRITERS: STEVE MCEWAN/ GORDON KENNEDY

    THIS BOY HERE WANTS TO MOVE TOO FAST
    HE SEES MY FUTURE AS HAVING A PAST
    WELL, I DON’T THINK SO
    I DON’T THINK SO

    THAT BOY THERE, WELL HE’S PLAYING THE FOOL
    HE THINKS HE’S FUNNY AND HE THINKS HE’S COOL
    WELL, I DON’T THINK SO

    CHEAP DATE, BAD TASTE
    ANOTHER NIGHT GONE TO WASTE
    TALKIN’ ‘BOUT NOTHING IN SO MANY WORDS

    (CHORUS)
    AND I CLOSE MY EYES

    OVERSIZED PANTS WITH AN EGO TO MATCH

    ‘CAUSE I’LL GIVE ANYONE A SHOT ONCE

    (REPEAT CHORUS)

    (BRIDGE)
    WHY CAN’T THEY BE LIKE THE ONES THAT MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME

    IT’S NOT LIKE I’M NOT TRYING
    CAUSE I’LL GIVE ANYONE A SHOT ONCE

    (REPEAT CHORUS)

  • 12. Twisted

    Hillary Lindsey/Luke Laird/Brett James

    baby, you're a wreckin' ball
    crashing into me
    nothin' i could do but fall
    piece by piece you broke down every part of me that ever thought i'd never need you baby

    (chorus)
    it's twisted
    messed up
    and the more i think about it
    it's crazy but so what
    i may never understand it
    i'm caught up and i'm hangin' on
    i'm gonna love you even if it's wrong

    everybody's telling me, i'm over my head
    but they don't feel you lovin' me
    they all say that i've gone crazy maybe but it's too late now to save me I'm too tangled

    it's twisted
    messed up
    and the more i think about it
    it's crazy but so what

    and the more i think about it
    it's crazy but so what
    i may never understand it

    messed up
    and the more i think about it
    it's crazy but so what
    i may never understand it
    i'm caught up and i'm hangin' on
    i'm gonna love you even if it's wrong
    [even if it's twisted]

    (Lindsey/Lindsey/Mayo)

    LOVE GOES OUT, OUT LIKE A LIGHT

    IT’S THE WHEEL OF THE WORLD

    THEN I’M WONDERING WHY
