Knew It Was Cold

i knew it was cold when i had to buy my own tune

never did i see you doggin’ me this soon

let u lay in my playroom and gaze at the full moon

i knew it was cold

i knew it was cold

saw you shakin’ a leg when you said you gonna stay in

tried to call you out in the middle of a tail spin

then you look at me and say i must of met ur twin

i knew it was cold

i knew you were cold

you can’t fool a fool see i ain’t no guaranteed shoo-in

i’ve made my share a mistakes and i know how to ruin

so before you burn a brother know what you doin’

i knew it was cold

i used to be cold

Ian’s Ballad

i wake up in the morning with thoughts of you in my mind

about the way that you love me and your beautiful smile

and it feels so good waking with you in my arms

if we stay right here and never get up

the world won’t do us no harm

but you know i got to leave you for the day

there’s just one thing that i want to say

you’re the only one that i love

and you can be sure that will never change

though i try my hardest

to carry these good feelings through the day

but every now and then there seems to be

obstacles that get in my way

i get stressed and i let my troubles get to me

and i end up taking it out on you

sometimes i can’t stop myself before it’s to late

i forget this isn’t what i ought to do

it builds and builds and bad turns to worse

and in the heat of the moment we fight scream and curse

why didn’t i stop and think about what i was doing to you

solo

i realized if i think about what i say

maybe we wouldn’t end up playing these silly games

i see it takes a strong woman to love a man

when at times he’s so hard to understand

i’m so thankful to have someone like you

who can forgive me and love me through and through

who can put behind her the nasty things i say

and still love me each and everyday

Spanish Girl

spanish girl

dont you dig my blues

if i don’t keep trying

i’m surely gonna lose

latina bombshell

don’t you hurt me so

dance with me one time

then i’ll let you go

mamacita

when can i see ya

i’ll be your whiskey honey

you be my margarita

Calamity Jane

a woman with a drink in her hand

and a gun on her mind

the wild wild west

another dame another time

here she comes better make a dash

find a new disgiuse

trigger finger ready

for your own demise

so the tale goes she so bold

no mercy shown

a liar and a thief

make you laugh make you groan

raising hell riding hard

a legend through and through

but if you cross her path say a prayer

one for me one for you

Heaven Help Me

i can’t see you baby you just break my heart

i can’t see you

i can’t please you

heaven help me you just broke my heart

seems you been playin’ me right from the start

don’t come around me no more

i swear i’ll call the law

heaven help me

don’t come around no more

i’m about to call the law

Lord help me this is the last draw

heaven help me

In The Dark

i walked into the bar to have a drink

there you were just what i prefer

what are you doing baby alone in the dark

as time goes past we amass our share of glass

one could assume we’re headed for the bedroom

i think it’s time to leave and be alone in the dark

i drove you home is that your phones ringtone

now tell me Anne was that your man

you shoulda been honest with me

while we were alone in the dark

hopped into my car and i had to tell OnStar

take me away from this driveway

it’s best i leave her alone in the dark

Been Gone Since Yesterday

you been gone since yesterday

now i miss you like a thousand ways

i know i did you wrong baby

but can you take me back cuz now i’m broke

i aint got no money

but i’m the richest man in the world

when i got you honey

in the past i let you down

given you the run around

your girlfriends say i’m a clown

but this aint no joke cuz now i’m broke

i aint got no money

but i’m the richest man in the world

when i got you honey

when you want to give to the poor to the needy

i mean charity

look no further baby you talkin’ about me

girl i can’t constitute

Lord knows i don’t own a suit

don’t make me prostitute

i couldn’t break a five because i’m broke

i can’t buy no good cigar

my dinner is a cookie jar

yesterday i lost my car

repossess my what? oh no!

so what you say give me one more chance

be my soulmate with finance

before we have this final dance

meet me at the bar because i’m broke
