(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Pure & Simple

Every time I think about you,
I get chills along my spine.
It's a feeling I'm not used to,
Can't believe you're really mine.

Other love's so complicated,
Broken hearts and twisting minds.
Then you came and I'm elated,
So unlike the other times.

It's so pure it's almost sacred.
Simply put, it feels divine.
I just love you pure and simple,
Pure and simple and sublime.

Don't it seem we've spent a lifetime.
Looking for that perfect love.
Like a dream we finally found it,
Pure and simple, well good for us.

It's so pure it's almost sacred.
Simply put, it feels divine.
I just love you pure and simple,
Pure and simple, sweet and fine.
I just love you pure and simple,
Can't believe you're really mine.

Say Forever You'll Be Mine

Say forever you'll be mine

Forever is the love that is filled with understanding
Forever is the love that is true and undemanding
Forever is the love that can stand the test of time
Forever I am yours, say forever you'll be mine

Trouble clouds may fill our skies
It might even rain awhile
But the rain will go away
There's always a brighter day

Darling, I won't promise you
That we'll be happy all the time
But forever I am yours, say forever you'll be mine
Forever I am yours, say forever you'll be mine
Say forever you'll be mine, forever I am yours
And I'll do anything that you ever ask me to
And I'll do what you want me to

Darling, I won't promise you
That we'll be happy all the time
But forever I am yours, say forever you'll be mine

Never Not Love You

I may not climb that Everest
Win praise in others' eyes
I may not win the lottery
Win the Pulitzer Prize
I may not sail the ocean
In a blown apart canoe
But I will never, never not love you

I might not be in fashion
Might not be all that smart
Might not be that good lookin'
Not someone set apart

Might not stand in the spotlight
That shines upon the pew
But I will never, never not love you

I will never not
Light up when I see you
I will never not
Feel you through and through
There are many things
I may or may not do
But I will never, never not love you

I may not offer riches
Or make a bed to do
I may not give you many things
That you're accustomed to
I may not be worthy of you
I just hope my love will
Cause I will never, never not love you

No matter where you are
No matter what you do
I will not be caught
Not loving you

May not set world records
But I can promise you
That I will never, never not love
You

No I will never, never not love you

Kiss It (And Make It All Better)

When I was a child
Whenever I'd fall
Skinning my elbows and knees
Mommy or daddy would kiss away tears
Kiss all the places I need

Scraped, scratched to broken
A kiss was a token
That mended and cured every part

Then I grew up and fell in love
Fell so hard that it broke my heart
And now, there you are

To kiss it and make it all better
Kiss me and heal all this hurt
Kiss me all over, and over all over
Cause that's where it hurts the worst

Damsel in distress in a red satin dress
A knight with his armor askew
Two broken hearts and all other parts
Left in lost love's residue

Came in for a drink, so I wouldn't think
To erase every thought from my head
But on second thought, I thought we ought
To see each other safely abed

Kiss it and make it all better
Kiss me and heal all this hurt
Kiss me all over, and over all over
Cause that's where it hurts the worst

I need a shoulder to cry on, to lean on
Two loving arms to hold me
Tender words said to make me forget
And two lips to kiss me to sleep

So kiss it and make it all better
Kiss me and heal all this hurt
Kiss me all over, and over all over
Cause that's where it hurts the worst

Kiss me tonight and make it all right
Just kiss it and make it all better

Kiss it and make it all better
Kiss me and heal all this hurt
Kiss me all over, and over all over
Cause that's where it hurts the worst

Cause that's where it hurts the worst
Kiss it, make it better
Kiss it, make it better

Can't Be That Wrong

So often in my dreams
I hold you close against my skin
Waking up I wish that I could
Sleep and dream again

Cause only when I sleep
Can I not hear how it's a sin
How cheaters never win
Their heartaches never end

"Torn Between Two Lovers" on the jukebox
And I'm thinking how I could've wrote that song
Wonderin' if God loves us, when we're cheatin'
But why he lets us feels things if it's wrong

I guess I should be singing "Rock of Ages"
"Amazing Grace", some of those good songs
Can't find it in my heart to ask forgiveness
Anything that feels this right can't be that wrong

Thou shalt not commit it
It's written in the tin
The spirit is always willing
But the flesh is weak again

And you're as close to heaven
As I might ever fly
An angel in disguise
A wrong that feels so right

And Torn Between Two Lovers just keeps playing
And I don't wanna be right if lovin' you is wrong
It goes against all I've ever stood for
Knowin' I have someone else at home

I guess I should be singing "Rock of Ages"
"Amazing Grace", some of those good songs
But my cheatin' heart can tell on me tomorrow
Cause anything that feels this right can't be that wrong

To hell with heaven if it means I'll lose you
Anything that feels this right can't be that wrong
It just can't be

Outside Your Door

Darlin', I'm outside your door,
Knowin' you'll welcome me in.
Don't have to knock twice, it feels so right
Bein' here with you again.

Might not be the right thing to do
But I swear it doesn't feel wrong.
Might not be forever, but never say never,
I'm standin' outside of your door.

I guess I should feel cheap,
But I just can't keep
My mind and my hands off of you.
The way we make love
Is so far above
Anything I ever knew.

So here I am, I'm outside your door,
Knowin' what's waitin' inside.
Heaven on earth and for all that it's worth,
We'll be here til we're both satisfied.

Two bottles of wine, one white and one red,
Few drinks to unwind, and then be off to bed.
We can't fight this passion, no need to pretend
And oh yes, I'll be outside your door again.

Darlin', I'm outside your door,
And I know you welcome me in.
(Don't have to knock twice)
It feels so right
Just bein' here with you again.
Yeah, I'm standin' outside of your door (once more)
And I know you'll welcome me in.

Don't have to knock twice, it feels so right,
Standin' outside of your door, once more.
I'm standin' outside of your door,
(Outside your door)
Once more.
(Outside your door)

Tomorrow Is Forever

Take my hand and run with me
Out of the past of yesterday
And walk with me into the future of tomorrow
Yesterday must be forgot
No looking back no matter what
There's nothing there but mem'ries that bring sorrow

Yesterday is gone, gone, but tomorrow is forever

No more crying tears leave tracks
And mem'ries find their way back
Tomorrow's waiting let's journey there together

Yesterday is gone, gone, but tomorrow is forever

I care not for yesterday I love you as you are today
Yesterday just helped to pass the time while waiting
We must forget the passing time
My love for you is the real kind
The kind that won't hurt you, oh never

Yesterday is gone, gone, but tomorrow is forever
Yesterday is gone, gone, but tomorrow is forever

I'm Sixteen

I'm sixteen burstin' at the seams
I'm back in my teens
Caution to the wind, yeah
You love me and what could be
More rejuvenating, I am young again

I'm sixteen, I'm sixteen
Loving you's a dream
And life is a breeze
Kickin' up my heels
Haven't had such thrills
Since I was sixteen cruisin' round the Tasty Freeze

It goes to show you're never old
Unless you choose to be
And I will be sixteen forever
Just as long as you love me

Baby, we can go to the drive-in show
Drinking Cherry Coke and Concession Trees
And maybe kiss and hug
Doing all that stuff
Always leading up
To that old back seat

I'm sixteen, yeah
I'm sixteen, yeah
We're in love
Oh, happy days
You and me, we are wild and free
We'll go steady until your daddy takes the T-bird away

It goes to show you're never old
Unless you choose to be
And I will be sixteen forever
Just as long as you love me
Watch me

You and I take a little dive
In the mill pond after midnight in our birthday suit
Makin' sweet, sweet love
Meet the stars above
Sneakin' back in through the window
'Fore the clock strikes two, yeah

I'm sixteen, burstin' at the seams
I'm back in my jeans
And I feel no pain
Kickin' up my heels
Haven't had such thrills
Since drivin' my old Chevy down Lovers' Lane

It goes to show you're never old
Unless you choose to be
And I will be sixteen forever
Just as long as you love me

Yeah, I'm sixteen, yeah
I'm sixteen, yeah
I'm sixteen, yeah
Caution to the wind
I'm sixteen, I'm sixteen
I'm sixteen, I feel young again

I'm sixteen
Don't I look sixteen?
You don't have to say
But I feel sixteen

Head Over High Heels

Put on my tight dress
Hair teased on my head
I painted my lips red
And my eyes like Adele
I step in my high shoes
Cheeks blushed in rose rouge
I'm lookin' too cool
But you never can tell

When I look in his face
My heart begins to race
It's just a disgrace
These thoughts that I think

When he holds me to him
I want to woo him
I want to undo him
And don't think I ain't

Head over high heels
I'm head over high, high heels
Head over high heels in love
I've never known such thrills
I can't believe how this feels
I'm head over high heels in love
Head over high heels in love

Oh, racing heart be still
I'm hoping he will
Make love to me 'til the sun's comin' up
Have mercy on my soul
I'm losing control
Head over high heels and I can't get enough

Well I put on my sexy dress
Hair piled on my head
Painted my lips red
I got a hot date tonight
I step in my high shoes
Cheeks blushed in rose rouge
I'm feeling too cool
Even glittered my eyes

Head over high heels
I'm head over high, high heels
Head over high heels in love, in love
I've never known such thrills
I can't believe how this feels
I am head over high heels in love

Sure enough, I'm head over high heels in love
Can't get enough
I'm head over high heels in love
I'm head over high heels in
Love

Head over high heels in love

Forever Love

You touch me it's like no one else ever touched me
Kiss me and all other kisses just fade
No other arms come to mind when you hold me
As if ever knew that for you, I was made

You are my joy and my laughter
You are the moon and you gave the stars light
You are my ever after
Forever love, the light of my life

You wrote the book, each page and each chapter
You are my poetry, story and song
Each moment I try to capture
All of the magic that you bring along

Fantasy, romance, story-book feelings
Wrapped as a gift sent from Heaven above
I promise I'll always love you
I'm yours, forever, love

You are my joy and my laughter
I vow to drink only from your loving cup
You are my ever after
You're mine, forever love

You are my joy and my laughter
My ever after
My forever love

My cherished
Forever love

Mama

(Bonus Track)

Mama, the one that wipes the noses and the tears
Mama, the one who keeps the peace and calms the fears
She irons and washes clothes
She cooks, she cleans, she sews
She's good about resolving family drama
A friend, our guiding light
She's daddy's loving wife
A constant in our lives
Mama

The one that never sleeps 'til all's in bed
The one that never eats 'til all are fed
Her never-ending love,
Her gentle, caring touch
She never asked for much
Mama

Oh mama, the one that wipes the noses and the tears
Oh mama, the one who keeps the peace and calms the fears
She irons and washes clothes
She cooks, she cleans, she sews
An angel heaven knows
Mama

Mama you will always be
The very core and heart of me
And even though you're gone
I see your love in everything

When I look in my children's eyes
It makes me think and realize
What you've done to enrich my life
I hope I can do the same

Oh mama, the one who wipes the noses and the tears
Oh mama, the one who keeps the peace and calms the fears
She irons and washes clothes
She cooks, she cleans, she sews
An angel heaven knows
Mama
A friend, our guiding light
She's daddy's loving wife
A constant in our lives
Mama

An angel in our lives
Sweet mama
Oh mama
Mmm-hmm
I love you, mama

Lovin' You

(Bonus Track)

If you've been wonderin' what I'm gonna do
While you are sleepin', am I sleepin', too
Well I just sittin' here lovin' you
Close my eyes an' lovin' you
I'm just sittin' back, sittin' here lovin' you

An' I have been wonderin' just what I would do
If I weren't sleepin', had I not found you
Well I'd be outside findin' you
I'd be walkin' on the avenue findin' you
Well, I'm just sittin' back, sittin' here lovin' you

Now the reason that you never see me runnin' 'round
Fingers on my forehead couldn't calm me down
An' he can't even get me up and on my feet

When I've got to take care of some business on the street
I have been walkin' all my streets alone
But I won't keep walkin' to keep from goin' home
Couldn't quite barely concieve of you
Aw, an' I'm just sittin' back, sittin' here lovin' you

If you've been wonderin' what I'm gonna do
While you are sleepin', am I sleepin', too
Well I just sittin' here lovin' you
I just close my eyes an' lovin' you
Aw, an' I'm just sittin' back sittin' here lovin' you
