LYRICS

Lyrics from the NEW LUCKY MAYS ALBUM | OUT NOW!

SPEND FOREVER

You’ve been saving up all your life
Stowing hearts for a rainy night
And a true love, a ‘make-it-through’ love

I’ve been doing the same thing too
Saving up for the one that’s you
My true love, ‘double-down-on-you’ love

Let’s cash it in and give ourselves a reward…

Do you wanna spend forever?
(Here in my arms)
Do you wanna spend it all?
(Honey, you can bet the farm)
Do you wanna spend forever?
(‘Cause you know I want It all before it’s gone)
Spend it all before it’s gone

Love’s a gamble, but I play for keeps
C’mon honey place your bets on me
Forever, pull that lever

So much different from the ones before
I was bankin’ on so much more
I’ve found you, now let me crown you

Honey you’ve been keepin’ all that love locked inside
Just roll the dice and let it ride…

Do you wanna spend forever?
(Here in my arms)
Do you wanna spend it all?
(Honey, you can bet the farm)
Do you wanna spend forever?
(‘Cause you know I want It all before it’s gone)
Spend it all before it’s gone

Gold and glitter in your eyes
Let’s take a ‘love vacation’ for the rest of our lives…

DROP IT DOWN
(INTO LOW GEAR)

We got the music on – the wine’s all gone
That look in your eyes says “c’mon c’mon”
Every minute I’m with you goes too fast
Time to take it slow – I want this night to last …whoah

Drop it down into low gear
Take it slow here
Wrap your arms around me
I’m so glad you found me
Take it slow here – take it slow here

You’re my Cinderella midnight right on time
It’s all movin’ so fast and you look so fine
Take it down slow it down
Ease into the groove now…
So, let’s dance with the stars and the moon in the sky
Holdin’ your hand; we move side to side
Take it down slow it down
Ease into the groove now …whoah

So, drop it down into low gear
Take it slow here
Wrap your arms around me
I’m so glad you found me
Take it slow here – take it slow here 

Well, my mind says ‘go’, but my heart says take it slow
I don’t wanna rush it, honey, but I just can’t let you go!

TELLING THE TRUTH

Honey you said it hurt you that I come home late
Smellin’ of 100 proof
There’s no more forgiveness in the words that you say
I know that you’re tellin’ the truth

You tell me that I‘ve had it made all this time
That I’m just becomin’ a fool
You say that you’re leavin’ me here with my dues
I know that you’re tellin’ the truth

Each mornin’ I wake up to this old empty room
And your handwritten letter – so blue
Now that I’m sober it’s all I can see
And I must face this cold bitter truth

You tell me that I’m not the man I once was
And I’m just becomin’ a fool
You say there’s no turnin’ the hands of time back
I know that, you’re tellin’ the truth

(Tell me the truth)

You say that you’re leavin’ and not comin’ back
Well I know that, you’re tellin’ the truth
Honey, yes, I know that you’re tellin’ the truth…

COUNTRY BEAUTY QUEEN

My girl’s a natural beauty – strong , sweet and pure
She don’t need no beauty pageant to make her feel secure
When she’s dancin’ to the music I have to stop and stare

At that t-shirt and blue jeans
Before my eyes she’s a living dream
She’s an angel standing right in front of me
Though she’s never been much for dressin’ up
And she looks so fine in the fancy things
She’ll always be my country beauty queen
In a t-shirt and blue jeans

When I saw her for the first time I just had to know her name
So I moved across the dance floor no time for playin’ games
Now everytime I hear that music I see her dancin’ to our song

In that t-shirt and blue jeans
Before my eyes she’s a living dream
She’s an angel standing right in front of me
Though she’s never been much for dressin’ up
And she looks so fine in the fancy things
She’ll always be my country beauty queen
In a t-shirt and blue jeans

I used to think that beauty was dressin’ up and playin’ the part
‘til I saw inside her soul and it hit me in the heart

CAROLINA

I can feel your cryin’ eyes
Staring through the walls again
If only I could realize
That I caused you so much pain
Honey, try to understand
I tried to be a better man
But all I have are hopes and dreams
And they’re fraying at the seams

I’ve been painting pictures in my mind

Carolina hold me close – don’t you go so far away
I just wanna hold you in my arms
Carolina down the coast – up the road so far away
Take me to the places in your heart

For now, you’re just a picture in my mind

Searching through the years
And hoping for a chance to change
Holdin’ back the tears
But it always looks like rain
And I’m tired of the slammin’ doors
Broken dishes on the livin’ room floor
Pieces of a broken heart
And a world that fell apart

It’s just a painful picture in my mind

Carolina hold me close – don’t you go so far away
I just wanna hold you in my arms
Carolina down the coast – up the road so far away
Take me to the places in your heart

Love was just a picture in my mind
Honey, you were in it all the time…

ALREADY GONE

He asked her forgiveness – wrote her a song
With sweet poetry he said he loved her all along
He never even noticed – she was already gone…

You see, after the fire when the embers cooled
All those lonely nights she waited she traded for another song
Never even noticed she was already gone…

I tried so long to tell you – all the cryin’ nights without you
I guess it just wasn’t enough and it was time to move on
But I never noticed – you were already gone…

Please try to forgive me, for the way this may sound
Honey, I don’t hate you, I just don’t love you no more
But I didn’t notice – and you were already gone…

If things here were different – put it all on rewind
But there’s no going back to the place where it all went so wrong
Nobody noticed – we were already gone

THE LITTLE THINGS

3AM the sweetest smile the world would ever see
Tiny hands, a button nose, kissin on those baby feet
She had her mama’s eyes and her daddy’s hair
Laugh to bring you to your knees

It’s a world of great big skies, Ocean’s deep and rivers wide
He remembers the little things

She was five years old when daddy died so she couldn’t remember his face
When he went away he said he’d be home soon and she longed for his embrace
The way he held her in his arms when the world went wrong
And it made her feel so small

In a world of great big skies, Broken dreams and bitter lies
She remembers the little things

Sometimes in the day to day you think they pass you by
You look up and deep inside
You remember the little things

On those long cold nights when the stars won’t shine
And the morning seems so far away
You look up and deep inside
Just remember the little things…

BIG RED CADILLAC

I can see that he hurt you – you were only seventeen
I’ll take my daddy’s car and the spare key
Honey just trust me – the road belongs to us

Nowhere to go, no looking back – In that Big Red Cadillac
Just running scared, and going fast – And hoping hope will last
In that Big Red Cadillac

If we can make it to Memphis – We can learn to live like kings
I’ll work for the food and rent – And you can paint your dreams
Honey just trust me – the world belongs to us

Nowhere to go, no looking back – In that Big Red Cadillac
Just running scared, and going fast – And hoping hope will last
In that Big Red Cadillac

All I wanna do is take you in my arms
Hit the open road and away from harm
Two small lanes and one big dream
We’re rollin’ down the road and never lookin’ back

Maybe we can get married – and start a family
Honey look into my eyes – and run away with me

Nowhere to go, no looking back – In that Big Red Cadillac
Just running scared, and going fast – And hoping hope will last
In that Big Red Cadillac

I CAN HEAR YOUR VOICE
(WHISPERING PINES)

The snowflakes fall as winter calls
And time keeps passin’ by
My heart growss cold the darkness falls
And my soul just wants to fly

I hear the beating of your heart through the stillness of the night
And it takes me to that special place
That look in your eyes the smile on your face

I’ll always hear your voice through the whispering pines
Calling my name from the highest heights
I’m not alone your keeping me warm
My life and protection safe in your arms again

The gentle breeze flows through your hair it sings a symphony
I can feel your words before they kiss the sky and fly away from me
When your spirit went away with that message in the wind
I knew that it just had to be
Then a lifetime of tears came rushing over me

Still I can hear your voice through the whispering pines
Calling my name from the highest heights
I’m not alone your keeping me warm
My life and protection safe in your arms

Now it’s time to turn the page the sun will give me light
And your kisses give me poetry
I can still see your eyes
And your smile won’t fade away…

I’ll always hear your voice through the whispering pines
Calling my name from the highest heights
I’m not alone still keeping me warm
My life and protection safe in your arms again…

DIRT ROAD
(TAILLIGHTS)

Dirt road, taillights
Riding out into the midnight
Blue-eyed tears are burning in the rear view

Two far, too gone
I hear the words from the saddest song
Telling me to turn this truck around

Hank Williams singin’ Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain
And I don’t know if we’ll ever meet again

New town, new life
I can’t stop thinkin’ ‘bout the old life
Tell me why it’s crystal clear in the rear view

But those days are long gone
Still the radio plays my song
Telling me to turn this life around

Willie Nelson singin’ Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain
And I don’t know if we’ll ever meet again

If I said I’m sorry
And I could make it all up to you
Would you dry those eyes and maybe understand

Hank Williams singin’ Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain
And I don’t know if we’ll ever meet again

Dirt road, taillights
Riding out into the midnight…
