Track Name: Oh My Love
Oh my love
It's so nice just to see your face
But I must think twice
Before I lose my heart again

Standing here
Longing for your touch
Don't disclose too much
It's pretty how this game is played
Oh, oh love

And I don't even know your name
But I feel that you feel the same
Don't be scared, it's all too real my love
Don't be scared, it's all too real my love
Don't be scared, it's all too real my love
Track Name: Like A Dog
Now ain’t it funny
How it hurts to hold
A smile for so long
And perhaps we should practice everyday

‘Cause your smile is so strong
It’s held me so so long
Walkin’ the fence line
Marking the front lines to your heart

And I love you like a dog
Like a dog that’s found a home
With a bone
And a warm place in the sun

Yes I love you like a dog
Like a dog that’s found a home
With a bone
And a warm place in the sun

And if I’m captured
And set free
With the long cold wilderness
Between you and me
You better believe I’m gonna fight
I’m gonna fight my way, fight my way back home, home, home

Where your smile is so strong
It’s held me for so so long
Walkin’ the fence line
Marking the front lines to your heart, your heart, your heart

I love you like a dog
Like a dog that’s found a home
With a bone
And a warm place in the sun
A warm place in the sun
A warm place in the sun
A warm place in the sun
Track Name: Picky Picky Picky
Oh, Juanito
Picky, picky, picky
Pulling on my heartstrings all the day long
Oh, Juanito
Picky, picky, picky
Pulling on my heartstrings all the night long
You play me like a song
Da da dai da da da da da da dai dai
I’m in love. I’m in love
I’m a grand old opera singer

Que alegria
Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha, ha
Laughing by your bedside all the day long
Que alegria
Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha, ha
Laughing by your bedside all the night long
It’s a love. It’s a love.
Let us go and show the people
It’s a love. It’s a love
Let us go and show the people

Perfect playmate
Walk me through the sunshine
Let us share the moonlight
All the life long
Perfect playmate
Walk me through the sunshine
Let us share the moonlight
All the life long
It’s a love. It’s a love
It’s the birthright of the people
It’s a love. It’s a love
It’s the birthright of the people
It's a love. Da da dai da da dai ...

Oh, Juanito
Picky, picky, picky
Pulling on my heartstrings all the life long
Track Name: Working Lands
Sold the farm for pennies on the dollar
Don’t look back, there’s nothing for you there
And the job that held it all together
Off to foreign lands, someone’s answer to a prayer

Eyes wide open, thoughts in forward mode
There’s time for sentiment sometime down the road
One time they said all roads lead to Rome
I don’t know, I’ve a hope my road leads me home

I used to be a lover and provider
Oh to hold her close, listen to her breathe
She’d tell me things that warm my heart like fire
Turning over earth to feed a hungry land

Eyes wide open, thoughts in forward mode
There’s time for sentiment sometime down the road
One time they said all roads lead to Rome
I don’t know, I’ve a hope my road leads me home

When you’re homesick for some place you’ve never been
Lovestruck by some face that comes and goes again
Tongue tied by the language of a new means to an end
Oh, I’ve got the will, yes I do, of the winter’s cold, hard winds
But I don’t know what to do now with these hands
They’re laid upon the backbone of these working lands
I don’t know what to do now with these hands
They’re laid upon the backbone of these working lands

Eyes wide open, thoughts in forward mode
There’s time for sentiment sometime down the road
One time they said all roads lead to Rome
I don’t know, I’ve a hope my road leads me home
Track Name: Walk Away
I saw you in some photographs
Holding hands with someone
I thought it was me
I saw you in some restaurant
You were laughing
He was sitting where I used to be

Your back was facing me
A burning building with no exit strategy
You moved on obviously
Why do you continue to burn inside of me?
I could move on, but there's no place I'd rather be
I should move on, but I'd miss this moment, this opportunity
I would move on, but I'll watch you walk away from me

I ran into you like some melancholy movie
You were married and happy
The way you should be
Contemplated some cheap charade
But you were pretty and oh so witty
The joke was on me

Your back was facing me
A burning building with no exit strategy
You moved on obviously
Why do you continue to burn inside of me?
I could move on, but there's no place I'd rather be
I should move on, but I'd miss this moment, this opportunity
I would move on, but I'll watch you walk away from me

Hate to see you go, but I'm so glad that you're on your way
All this walking just keeps you from falling down into shades of grey
I can tell by that look in your eyes
Things will never be the way they were between you and I
Watch you walk away from me (la, la, la, la, bye, bye)

I know I keep telling myself (telling myself)
But the one thing that kills me is what I do best (what I do best)
Watch you walk away from me
Watch you walk away from me
Watch you walk away from me
Track Name: Cowgirl
Cowgirl
Starlight boots
Whale of a belt buckle
It's up!
(uh-huh, uh-huh ...)

I don't need you
But I'll get you all the same
I'll navigate ya
Oh yeah!
(uh-huh, uh-huh ...)

I don't like your way of talking
But I like your style of walking
Across my bedroom floor
You don't like my face a plenty
And you steal my wallet empty
Before you're out the door

You got a bulletproof hairdo
And a name I can't explain
I watch you save me
Sexy!
(uh-huh, uh-huh ...)

I don't like your way of talking
But I like your style of walking
Across my bedroom floor
You don't like my face a plenty
And you steal my wallet empty
Before you're out the door

You, you, me, me, we, we are so crazy in love
You, you, me, me, we, we are so crazy in love

I watch you tame those suckers
With your Spanish poetry
It's the last call
Whiskey!
(uh-huh, uh-huh ...)

I don't like your way of talking
But I like your style of walking
Across my bedroom floor
You don't like my face a plenty
And you steal my wallet empty
Before you're out the door

You so crazy in love (ha, ha, ha, ha)
You're so crazy in love (ha, ha, ha, ha)
Crazy in love (ha, ha, ha, ha)
You're so crazy (ha, ha, ha, ha)
I'm so crazy in love (ha, ha, ha, ha)
I'm so crazy (ha, ha, ha, ha)
We, we are so crazy in love, in love, in love
