mama's boy Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

you!

(One, two)
(One, two, three)

Like water in the desert
Impossible to find
You found me when I was broken
Put me back together, gave me life

Like a flower in the concrete
So beautiful and rare
You gave me hope when I was empty
Walked me through the fire, you were there

You're the sun to the moon
You're my ocean, painted blue
You, I'm nothing without you
(Without you, without you)

Like an angel in a nightmare
You opened up my eyes
Looking in all the wrong places
You're the one I needed this whole time

You're the sun to the moon
You're my ocean, painted blue
You, I'm nothing without you
(Without you, without you)
You're the light in the dark
You're the arrow through my heart
You, I'm nothing without you (oh, oh)
I'm nothing without you (oh, oh)
I'm nothing without you (oh, oh)
I'm nothing without you

You, I'm nothing without you
I'm nothing without you
I'm nothing without you
I'm nothing without you

You're the air in my lungs
You're the veins to my blood
Yeah, you, I'm nothing without you

You're the sun to the moon
You're my ocean, painted blue
You, I'm nothing without you
(Without you, without you)
You're the light in the dark
You're the arrow through my heart
You, I'm nothing without you (oh, oh)
I'm nothing without you (oh, oh)
I'm nothing without you (oh, oh)
I'm nothing without you

cowboy in LA

Palm trees
Square dancin' under the moon
Sunsets
They ain't got nothin' on you
And the purple in the sky ain't as pretty as your eyes
Tell me what I gotta do
When you're with me
It's better than Malibu

Let's skip the club, let's skip the crowd
Wanna take you on a date
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold the door
'Cause that's how I was raised
Yeah, all the other boys in town
All look and talk the same
But I got a different kind of heart
I'm a cowboy
A cowboy in L.A.
A cowboy in L.A.

Thunder
Pick-ups and cheap gasoline
Lightnin'
Best show that I've ever seen
And you get up every day and you work hard for your pay
Happy in a pair of jeans
Oklahoma
It made a man out of me

Let's skip the club, let's skip the crowd
Wanna take you on a date
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold the door
'Cause that's how I was raised
Yeah, all the other boys in town
All look and talk the same
But I got a different kind of heart
I'm a cowboy
A cowboy in L.A.
A cowboy in L.A.

And we can take it slow, this ain't a rodeo
I can show you somethin' new

Let's skip the club, let's skip the crowd
Wanna take you on a date
I'll hold your hand, yeah, I'll hold the door
'Cause that's how I was raised
And all the other girls in town
Won't look at you the same
'Cause I got a different kind of heart
I'm a cowboy
You got a cowboy in L.A.
A cowboy in L.A.

Palm trees
Square dancin' under the moon

heart won't let me

You and I always fight 'bout the same old thing
In the car, at the bar, by the kitchen sink
You used to say you want me, now we just say sorry
You and I always fight 'bout the same old thing

I should've probably already left
But I never listen to my head

Say I'm gonna go, can't take it anymore
Keys are in my hand, got one foot out the door
Every time I try, every time I try to leave
My heart won't let me

Not okay, God, I hate-hate the place we're in
But I forget for a sec when I kiss your lips

I should've probably already left
But I never listen to my head

Say I'm gonna go, can't take it anymore
Keys are in my hand, got one foot out the door
Every time I try, every time I try to leave
My heart won't let me
Be the one to quit, I know it's gonna hurt
Lyin' to myself will only make it worse
Every time I try, every time I try to leave
My heart won't let me

(Ooh, ooh-ooh)
My heart won't let me
(Ooh, ooh-ooh)

You used to say you want me, now we just say sorry
Why can't I just walk away?

Say I'm gonna go, can't take it anymore
Keys are in my hand, got one foot out the door
Every time I try, every time I try to leave
My heart won't let me
Be the one to quit, I know it's gonna hurt
Lyin' to myself will only make it worse
Every time I try, every time I try to leave
My heart won't let me

(Ooh, ooh-ooh)
My heart won't let me
(Ooh, ooh-ooh)
My heart won't let me

if this is the last time

Hey mom, I know
We're getting old
And the lines on our hands have changed
But you still look at me the same

Hey Mom, guess what?
You're really tough
And I know you did all you could
Just to make sure my life was good

Sorry for the fights and the tone of my voice
Sorry for the nights when I made the wrong choice
Life is flying by and it's hitting me now
I hope it's not but

If this is the last time please come close
I love you with all my heart, you know
I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
If this is the last time
Then let's do the things we always do
Like go to the mall and buy some shoes
I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
If this is the last time

Hey dad, what's up?
Miss you so much
Yeah, the shade of your hair is changed
But I look up to you the same

Taught me how to fish, taught me how to ride a bike
Taught me how to love, how to treat a woman right
Life is flying by and it's hitting me now
I hope it's not but

If this is the last time please come close
I love you with all my heart, you know
I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
If this is the last time
Then let's do the things we always do
Like go for a drive or watch the news
I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
If this is the last time

Hey you, sit back
Don't go so fast

If this is the last time please come close
I love you with all my heart, you know
I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
If this is the last time
So let's do the things we always do
Or maybe we try something brand new
I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
If this is the last time

If this is the last time
If this is the last time
Oh
If this is the last time
If this is the last time
If this is the last time
Oh
If this is the last time

i still talk to jesus

Oh, no

If there's a heaven
I hope that I get in
But I probably won't
I break all the rules
Do all the things
The Bible says, "Don't"

I don't change my ways, I don't change my shirt
I go from the club straight to the church
It's the same prayer, it's the same hurt

Maybe I drink too much
Fallin' in-out of love
There's been a couple times
I've done a couple lines
I lie to my mama, smoke marijuana
Most of the time, I do what I wanna
You might not believe it
But I still talk to Jesus

I've got a past
More stained than the glass
Everyone knows
I need salvation
For my reputation
So here it goes

I don't change my ways, I don't change my shirt
I go from the club straight to the church
It's the same prayer, it's the same hurt

Maybe I drink too much
Fallin' in-out of love
There's been a couple times
I've done a couple lines
I lie to my mama, I smoke marijuana
Most of the time, I do what I wanna
You might not believe it
But I still talk to Jesus

Hallelujah
Amazing grace
Just tryna do better
Than yesterday
Hallelujah
Amazing grace
Just tryna do better
Than yesterday

Maybe I drink too much
Fallin' in-out of love
There's been a couple times
I've done a couple lines
I lie to my mama, I smoke marijuana
Most of the time, I do what I wanna
You might not believe it
But I still talk to Jesus
I know that I need it
So I still talk to Jesus

(I break all the rules)
(Do all the things)
(The Bible says, "Don't")
(I don't change my ways, I don't change my shirt)
(I go from the club straight to the church)
(It's the same, it's the same hurt)
(Maybe I)

paper

It's been a couple months since I moved in all my stuff
But this place still don't feel like it's my home
And everybody thinks that we're the poster kids for love
But we lay in bed and make love to our phones

Even at our lowest low
We don't ever let it show
We both know we shouldn't be together

But we look good on paper
We keep foolin' all the neighbors
They think we've got a perfect life
'Cause they don't hear us when we fight
So we look good on paper
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later

Friday night when we go out and meet all of our friends
You're in that little black dress I like
Posin' for a photograph, we smile and play pretend
Is there any part of you that's tired of lying?

Even at our lowest low
We don't ever let it show
We both know we shouldn't be together

But we look good on paper
We keep foolin' all the neighbors
They think we've got a perfect life
'Cause they don't hear us when we fight
So we look good on paper
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later

It's been a couple months since I moved in all my stuff
But this place still don't feel like it's my home

I don't wanna waste your time
I don't know why I'm wastin' mine
So tell me why the hell we're still together

Is it 'cause we look good on paper?
We keep foolin' all the neighbors
They think we've got a perfect life
'Cause they don't hear us when we fight
So we look good on paper
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later
Then we fall apart later

good guys

I wanna call you up
Tell you how I feel
But I might scare you away if
I get too real
So I won't text back
For a couple of hours
What I really wanna do is
Bring you flowers

I'm not gonna hold your hand
Ask if you wanna dance
I can not take you home, you know

I just wanna give you everything
Show you I'm a silent gentleman
All I wanna do is let you in
But good guys, good guys never win
I just wanna be the one you call
Anything you need, anything at all
All I wanna do is let you in
But good guys, good guys never win

When you stay out late
And I don't hear back
I always wonder where you've been but
I don't ask
You're the one I want
I don't wanna share
But when you talk about someone else
I act like I don't care

I'm not gonna hold your hand
Ask if you wanna dance
I can not take you home, you know

I just wanna give you everything
Show you I'm a silent gentleman
All I wanna do is let you in
But good guys, good guys never win
I just wanna be the one you call
Anything you need, anything at all
All I wanna do is let you in
But good guys, good guys never win

So I'll never play it cool
'Til I know you want me too
So I'll never play it cool
'Til I know you want me to

I just wanna give you everything
Show you I'm a silent gentleman
All I wanna do is let you in
But good guys, good guys never win
I just wanna be the one you call
Anything you need, anything at all
All I wanna do is let you in
But good guys, good guys never win

So I'll never play it cool
'Til I know you want me too

So I'll never play it cool
'Til I know you want me too
So I'll never play it cool
'Til I know you want me too

sharing you

I never saw it comin', I was havin' fun alone
It took a couple shots, now I got your number in my phone
I wanna give you all of my time
Even though I know I'm not yours and you're not mine
I never saw it comin', I was havin' fun alone

I kinda wish you'd talk to me more than you do
I know you're out tonight, but I don't know with who
I'm sorry I get jealous or if I ever act selfish
But it's only 'cause I've got a hard time sharing you

I never saw it comin', I never really get this way
Pretty good with words, with you, I don't know what to say
I wanna tell you all my secrets
But I don't even know if you're willing to keep 'em
I never saw it comin', I never really get this way

I kinda wish you'd talk to me more than you do
I know you're out tonight, but I don't know with who
I'm sorry I get jealous or if I ever act selfish
But it's only 'cause I've got a hard time sharing you

Tell me what you wanna know, I'll probably want it too
Tell me where you wanna go, and I'll go there with you
Take my hand, I swear to God, there's nothing we can't do
Tell me what you're scared of, I bet I'm scared of it too

I kinda wish you'd talk to me more than you do
I know you're out tonight, but I don't know with who
I'm sorry I get jealous or if I ever act selfish
But it's only 'cause I've got a hard time sharing you

bad news

I'ma make your mama love me
Every time you take me home
I'ma make your daddy hate me
Every time that we're alone

I'ma treat you right, you'll wanna be mine
And baby, that's the worst part
'Cause I'm never in town, I'll probably let you down
And I don't wanna break your heart

And I don't wanna break your heart

Don't wanna make promises that I know I can't keep

Baby, I'm bad news
(Ooh)
Baby, I'm bad news

when you're drunk

2AM, I'm wide awake
Ceiling fan, Coldplay
Haven't heard from you all day
Tv light, the sound is off
I'm keepin' my fingers crossed
But all you do is put me on pause

I know, I know if I'm bein' honest
Then maybe we should call it

Is it love
If you only ever want me when you're drunk?
If the only time you ever think of us
When you're out and had a little bit too much
Is it love?
Is it true
If you say it in the middle of the night?
Or you're caught up in your feelings on a flight
If you only ever want me when you're drunk
Is it love?
Oh, oh

You don't want me like I want you
You don't want me like I want you

Now it's been a couple days
When I start to feel okay
Phone lights up, I see your name

I know, I know that I shouldn't pick up
But I don't wanna give up

Is it love (is it love)
If you only ever want me when you're drunk? (When you're drunk)
If the only time you ever think of us (think of us)
When you're out and had a little bit too much (bit too much)
Is it love?
Is it true (is it true)
If you say it in the middle of the night? (Of the night)
Or you're caught up in your feelings on a flight (on a flight)
If you only ever want me when you're drunk (when you're drunk)
Is it love?
Oh, oh

You don't want me like I want you
You don't want me like I want you

Is it love
If you only ever want me when you're drunk?
If the only time you ever think of us
When you're out and had a little bit too much
Is it love?
Is it true (is it true)
If you say it in the middle of the night? (Of the night)
Or you're caught up in your feelings on a flight (on a flight)
If you only ever want me when you're drunk (when you're drunk)
Is it love?
Oh, oh

You don't want me like I want you
You don't want me like I want you

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh-ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh-ooh)

anything 4 u

I know the house you grew up in
All of the names of your best friends
I know the way you feel about your dad
I spent the summer on your couch
You fell in love with someone else
You came to me the times that it went bad

I'm something so familiar
That you don't even notice
The way I wanna love ya
It's time that you should know this, know this

I'll catch a flight, go to the moon
Lay on the floor of your livin' room
And talk about the things that make you cry (cry)
I'll sell my soul, sell my guitar
Sleep in the back of a beat up car
Girl, just tell me what I have to do
I'll do anything for you

You know the house we grew up in
You wouldn't knock, you'd just walk in
Stay up for hours talkin' to my mom

I'm something so familiar
That you don't even notice
The way I wanna love ya
It's time that you should know this, know this

I'll catch a flight, go to the moon
Lay on the floor of your livin' room
And talk about the things that make you cry (cry)
I'll sell my soul, sell my guitar
Sleep in the back of a beat up car
Girl, just tell me what I have to do

If you say, "I wanna leave this town tonight"
Then let's do it
If we're halfway there and then you change your mind
There's nothing to it
If it takes the rest of my whole life
To prove it

I'll catch a flight, go to the moon
Lay on the floor of your livin' room
And talk about the things that make you cry (cry)
I'll never walk into another bar
I'll burn these tattoos off my arms
I'll go to hell and back if I have to
I'll do anything for you
I'll do anything for you
I'll do anything for you

sad

You cut your hair, you dried your tears
You look happier than ever
And I hear he's nice and treats you well
I wish that I had loved you better

'Cause it feels like I'll never get over you
And I don't know what I'm supposed to do

So I stay out late with all your friends
And I get so drunk that I pretend
That I don't miss all the good things that we had
'Cause I heard you found somebody else
And it breaks my heart and hurts like hell
'Cause I know that I will never get you back
Wish that I could make you sad
Wish that I could make you sad

I kissed someone in front of you
Just to try to make you jealous
But you don't care, you don't cry
And there's nothin' I can do to change your mind

So I stay out late with all your friends
And I get so drunk that I pretend
That I don't miss all the good things that we had
'Cause I heard you found somebody else
And it breaks my heart and hurts like hell
'Cause I know that I will never get you back
Wish that I could make you sad
Wish that I could make you sad

And I can't believe what I'm going through
I hate myself for losin' you

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

So I stay out late with all your friends
And I get so drunk that I pretend
That I don't miss all the good things that we had
'Cause I heard you found somebody else
And it breaks my heart and hurts like hell
'Cause I know that I will never get you back
Wish that I could make you sad
Wish that I could make you sad
Wish that I could make you
Wish that I could make you sad

(what i wish just one person would say to me)

We were young, we fell in love
And our hearts were set aflame
I don't know what life is like
If I'm not next to your name
Everything I've ever wanted
Everything I need
But the space inside your heart
Is gonna need more than me

I'm here to stay, I'll find a way
I know it hurts
There's no one else, I'll go through hell
To make it work

Look at you go
The world is yours, I'll hold it down at home
Even though I hate to be alone
I know this is what you gotta do
I'm happy, I'm happy for you

Now and then I find myself
Gettin' lost without you here
Been gone for a couple days
Tell me why it feels like years
Everything I've ever wanted
Everything I need
I'm gonna be strong for you
But I wish you'd never leave

I'm here to stay, I'll find a way
I know it hurts
There's no one else, I'll go through hell
To make it work

Look at you go
The world is yours, I'll hold it down at home
Even though I hate to be alone
I know this is what you gotta do
I'm happy, I'm happy for you

Look at you go
The world is yours, I'll hold it down at home
Even though I hate to be alone
I know this is what you gotta do
I'm happy, I'm happy for you
So, hurry back and let me hold you tight
Even if it's only for the night
There is nothin' that I wouldn't do
I'm happy, I'm happy for you

nobody else

California sunshine
But sometimes it's gonna rain
I wish it was always blue skies
But they can turn to gray
Work yourself to the bone
But sometimes you just can't win
Life ain't about what you do
It's who you do it with

So let me know

Would ya lend a hand to me if I needed help?
Would ya keep me company when I'm by myself?
And if heaven doesn't want us
Would you go with me to hell?
Hope you know I don't want nobody else

There's just no way around it
One day we're gonna die
If we can't live forever
Let's laugh until we cry
We can go to Paris, go to bed
It's all a crazy trip
But life ain't about what you do
It's who you do it with

So let me know

Would ya lend a hand to me if I needed help?
Would ya keep me company when I'm by myself?
And if heaven doesn't want us
Would you go with me to hell?
Hope you know I don't want nobody else

Would ya lend a hand to me if I needed help?
Would ya keep me company when I'm by myself?
And if heaven doesn't want us
Would ya go with me to hell?
Hope you know I don't want nobody else

Would ya call me back in the middle of the night?
Would ya kiss and make up after a stupid fight?
If I share my darkest secrets
Would you promise not to tell?
Hope you know I'd do these things as well
Hope you know I don't want nobody else
