Neighborhood thumping, your Chevy truck pumping

Your music up too loud

You're laying on the horn while I'm waiting at the door

Bet you make your momma proud

Baby if you're trying to find your way to me

Your little road map to my heart must be unclear

Cause you can't get there from here


Its gotta be real

Its gotta be love

Gotta show me what you're made of

Gotta sweep me off your feet

Make my heart skip a beat or two

I won't be your "been there," "done that"

Your side show souvenir

I can let you in my heart if you show me you're sincere

But you can't get there from here, no, no, no, no


Poor little baby said you're working like crazy

Man you're such a liar

You're ditchin' out plans to hang with your friends

Boy, you set your pants on fire

Baby, if you're trying to play me

You're little game plan to my heart must be unclear

Cause you can't get there from here


Chorus


I'm not sure I'm getting thru

Can you feel what I'm saying to you?


Chorus x2

Written By: Hannah McNeil and Sherri Gough


She kept on riding that old bus

Though people told her that she must

Make room for the white

But she knew that wasn't right


The risk that she took, it shook the world

And she was just one girl


She's makin' her mark

Makin' her mark in history

She's makin' her mark

Thinkin' about life differently

She's not just any girl

There's so much to her

She's making her mark

Makin' her mark on the world


She was blind and couldn't speak

But that didn't make her weak

Beauty in the way she wrote

Overcame the dark with hope


Gave the one's without a voice, a choice to be heard

And she was just on girl


Chrous


There's a girl out there

Listening to this song

No matter what she's going through

She's strong

And one day

People will say


She's makin' her mark

Makin' her mark in history

She's makin' her mark

Thinkin' about life differently

x2


You're not just any girl

Oh, there's so much to you, I'm sure

You'll be making your mark

Making your mark

Making you mark on the world

Written by: Hannah McNeil, Rob Higgins, Nathan Brumley


Everyone tries to be what society thinks they should be

What you wear-what you say-what you drive-what you make

Or the latest craze

But I will go against this endless flow


And Dare to Be Me

Yeah I will be free

I Dare to Be Me

Your pressure won’t get to me

Cause I, I Dare to Be Me


I’m unique-I am wonderfully made there’s no one like me

Why should I fall into what the world thinks is cool

If it’s not me?

Cause I will run to the beat of my heart’s drum


Chorus


I forgive I forget but I won’t let

The sun go down on my dreams

No matter what, no matter where


Chorus x2

Written by: Robin Roy Johnson, Hannah McNeil, Rob Higgins, Lisa Johnson


Don’t ya know real love is all that matters

To leave behind you, and that’s all right by me

Well, it might leave your heart all achin’, worn and battered

A little bit tattered

But that’s all right by me


It’s a legacy unrivaled; it’s tested, tried and true

Anyway, it’s always seen me through


Well it’s real love, a timeless mystery

That can make every mountain seem worth the climbing

And keeps on growing till the end of time

And real love, it’s the only think I know

Ya give away everyday until your life is over

And still have enough to take with you when you go


Don’t ya know real love can always find you

It sneaks up behind you and that’s all right by me

It’ll turn your head around if it takes a mind to

And redefine you

And that’s alright by me


It’ll give you new direction; and change your point of view

And baby, love gave me you


Chorus


Love will carry on like a pebble in a pond

Making ripples move across the water

It’ll keep on growing and love will keep flowing

If we all try a little harder


Well, it’s all you get to take with you when you go


Don’t ya know real love is all that matters

And of all that matters, that’s all right by me

Written by: Robin Roy Johnson, Hannah McNeil, Rob Higgins, Lisa Johnson, Jesse Wray


Mama’s hat and heels might seem a little extreme

But I was six years old and I was living the dream

Serving cookies and imaginary tea

Not knowing just how tough growing up would be


But mama helped me every step of the way

Through the years I would hear her say


Live each and every minute, finding beauty in it

And to your heart be true

Be kind and find the time to be somebody’s angel

That’s what I want for you


Now I’ve got a daughter of my very own

Sometimes her life revolves around the cell phone

Someday she’ll grow up and leave her home

But she will never have to feel alone


Cause I’ll be there every step of the way

And through the years she will hear me say


Chorus


That’s what I want for you


And when my baby has a baby of her own

She’ll take these words and pass them along


Chorus

Written by: Sherri Gough, Hannah McNeil, Rob Higgins


There’ve been a few times my life has crossed that center line

I felt like a Mack truck, couldn’t get back up so I had to decide

I could’ve laid down on the ground and said “I quit!”

But I know I make my own heartache and my own bliss


We’re all goin’ somewhere

It might be heaven and it might be hell

Don’t have to wait ‘till I get there

I decide right now what’s inside myself

Don’t want my life to just exist

I’m livin’ it

I’m livin’ it


I used to do that 8 to 5, 24/7, 365

Everyday I was trapped in, shipped in for that same ol’ ride

Had to find meanin’ instead of learnin’ on that tried routine

Found where I went, so I could get back to who I’m meant to be


Chorus


Circumstance can get me but I don’t let it get me down

I face those bad times take what my mind tells me, to turn it around


We’re all goin’ somewhere

It might be heaven and it might be hell

Don’t have to wait ‘till I get there

I decide right now what’s inside myself


Chorus


I make my heartache and my own bliss

I’m livin’ it

I’m livin’ it


Good and bad, it’s all part of livin’ it

I’m livin’ it

Written by: Hannah McNeil, Rob Higgins, Jesse Wray


It’s time for me to help see

This house is not a home for me

A couch, a table and your big TV

The room still feels so empty


It’s bottled up inside of you

And every time I try

I can’t get through

You slam the door and mumble as you go

You just wanna be left alone


Communication is the key

Why don’t you talk to me?


Get it our

What’s on your mid

The jig is up, so is your time

Spit it out, here’s your life line

Talk to me, or baby you and I

Is good-bye


Why don’t you ask me about my day

Maybe text and see if I’m okay

Send an email or just ring my cell

Silent treatment puts me through hell


Communication is the key

So why don’t you talk to me?


Chorus


Communication is the key

So why don’t you talk to me?


Chorus


Talk to me so you and I

Ain’t good-bye

Written by: Robin Roy Johnson, Hannah McNeil, Jesse Wray


Eighty-seven lime green Chevy four-door

A Bon Jovi bumper sticker on the back door

Four hundred thousand mile and still going… strong


I’m holding hands with my baby in the front seat

Elvis singing while we’re cruisin’ down Main Street

You have a way with me that keeps making… old things new again

Life can be like a boomerang

Sometimes you might feel like you’ve thrown it away

Then love brings it back with a bang… (bang)… old things new again


We’ve been together since we were ‘bout nineteen

You’d think b now that our kissing would be routine

But when you hold me close we’re still making… old things new again


Chorus


And if we ever find it falling apart

We’ll just gather up the pieces and we’ll put it back together again… yeah


Chorus x2

Written by: Tom Brasfield and Walt Aldridge

Now you can walk out on me tonight

If you think that it ain't feeling right

But darling, there's ain't no getting over me


Well you can say that you need to be free

But there ain't no place that I won't be

Sweet darling, there ain't no getting over me


I'll be the bill you forgot to pay bass run up

I'll be the dream that keeps you awake

I'll be the song on the radio

I'll be the reason that you tell the girls no, don't you know


You can tell everyone that we're through

You might even believe it too

But darling there's ain't no getting over me

Sweet darling there ain't no getting over me


I'll be the face that you see in the crowd

I'll be the times that you cry out loud

I'll be the smile when there's no one around

I'll be the book that you just can't put down


So you can walk out on me tonight

If you think that it ain't feeling right

But darling, there's ain't no getting over me

Written by: Robin Roy Johnson, Hannah McNeil, Rob Higgins, Linda Johnson


Sweet little boy, should be fishin’

Instead of hangin’ around at the mission

His single mom, doing all she can

Her little man does his best to understand


Let’s open out hearts

Open our hands

Open our minds to things we don’t understand

Open our arms to somebody

Instead of just walking away

Let’s open our dreams… open our eyes

Open ourselves enough to recognize

Opening up to somebody can help the healing start

Just open your heart

Open your heart


Sam left his leg back in Vietnam

Risking his life for his buddies in the homeland

Lost his job, fell on harder times

Now he makes his living with a cardboard sign


Chorus


Little girl wants to be a dancer

In the battle for life fighting cancer

Her daddy cries, so does her mother

Then try to be strong for one another


Chorus


Just open your heart

Open your heart

Written by: Roger Cook and Sam Hogin


I don't believe in superstars

Organic food and foreign cars

I don't believe the price of gold

The certainty of growing old

That right is right and left is wrong

That north and south can't get along

That east is east and west is west

And being first is always best


But I believe in love

I believe in babies

I believe in Mom and Dad

And I believe in you


Well, I don't believe that heaven waits

For only those who congregate

I like to think of God as love

He's down below, He's up above

He's watching people everywhere

He knows who does and doesn't care

And I'm an ordinary man

Sometimes I wonder who I am


But I believe in love

I believe in music

I believe in magic

And I believe in you


I know with all my certainty

What's going on with you and me

Is a good thing

It's true, I believe in you


I don't believe virginity

Is as common as it used to be

In working days and sleeping nights

That black is black and white is white

That Superman and Robin Hood

Are still alive in Hollywood

That gasoline's in short supply

The rising cost of getting by


But I believe in love

I believe in old folks

I believe in children

I believe in you


I believe in love

I believe in babies

I believe in Mom and Dad

And I believe in you

Written by: Sean Gasaway and Sherri Gough


Lord I’ve Made Some Mistakes Just Like Every Man Since My Daddy On Back

And Even Though I Try Livin’ Right I Can’t Seem To Keep My Life On Track

Lord I’m Tryin To Change And It Seems The More I Fall The More I Grow

But I Know I’ll Never Measure Up To The Man Who Was Here Two Thousand Years Ago

You Know The One Who Saved Our Souls


I Never Claimed To Walk On Water

And I Damn Near Drowned The Time I Tried

And The Only Thing I’ve Raised Up From The Dead

Are Some Memories That I Thought I’d Left Behind

And I Don’t Have Disciples

But I Got Twelve Steps That Help Me Since My Last Drink

I Ain’t The Devil And Lord Knows That I Ain’t Jesus


He said I Don’t Pretend That I Am Perfect And I’m Not The One To Be Castin’ Stones

And If You Look In My Grave When I’m Gone I’ll Be There And You’ll Find My Bones

Cause I’m A Sinner Not A Saint, Hell It’s A Miracle That I’m Still Alive

From All The Crazy Things That I’ve Done, From When My Heart’s Been Hung Out To Dry

But I’ve Never Been Crucified


Chorus


So Don’t Ask Me What He Would Do

I’ve Never Walked A Mile In His Shoes

And I’m Not Here To Save You

So Don’t Judge Me Just Love Me And

Pray For Me And Wish Me Well

Cause I’m Stuck Somewhere Between Heaven And Hell


Chorus


Lord Knows I Ain’t Jesus

Lord Knows I Ain’t Jesus

Written by: Hannah McNeil and Rob Higgins


It’s easy, it’s easy to see, oh, oh

How much you mean to me, yeah, yeah

You taught me, you taught me, you know

How to love and make sure it shows


You’ll never be far from me

No matter where you are

You’ll never be far from me

You’ll always be in my heart

You’ll never be, you’ll never be far


It’s like I could reach out and touch your soul

Anytime, anyplace, yeah, yeah

I see you in our baby girl

In my whole world, yes I do

You touch my life in ways you’ll never know

Lovin’ you has made me grow


Chorus


Don’t think, don’t think, don’t think

I don’t miss you

Don’t think, don’t think, don’t think

I don’t miss you


Chorus


You’ll never be, you’ll never be far

Written By: McNeil/Higgins


As I lay beside you

I can feel your heart touch mine

I can see your spirit

There’s nothing’ so divine


I think of how you love me

As you lay so soft and still

Never thought it’s be so good

Find something real and be fulfilled


Your love keeps reachin’ out to me

You’ve shown me things I never thought I’d see


I want you

I need you

Baby all the time


I want you

I need you

Baby all my life


When I think of what we’ve done

and that it’s just begun

There’s no place I’d rather be

Now that you’re holding me


You’ve shown me things I never thought I’d see

You bring where I never thought I’d be


I want you

I need you

Baby all the time


I want you

I need you

Baby all my life


Chorus


NA NA NA NA NA NA Baby all the time (all the time)

NA NA NA NA NA NA Baby all my life


As I lay beside you, I can feel your heart touch mine
