This Ain’t No Love Song March 9, 2011

Filed under: Song of the Day — Lia Randazzo @ 8:58 PM

Song: This Ain’t No Love Song

Artist: Trace Adkins

Year: 2010

Lyrics:

Well, my heart didn’t skip a beat
When I saw you standin’ there,
Lookin’ like some kinda angel,
Like you were walkin’ on air.
And the earth didn’t move
When you first said my name.
I didn’t feel a thing, no not me.
My heart didn’t skip a beat.

This ain’t no love song,
I just felt like gettin’ my guitar on,
And singin’ a tune
Singin’ ‘bout you.
Yeah, feelin’ good and tappin’ my shoes.
And all this stuff I’m makin’ up,
Well, you probably won’t be hearin’ it on the radio,
But then you never know.
So baby if you want,
You can sing along,
But this ain’t no love song.

I couldn’t sleep last night,
But you weren’t on my mind.
And I went for a drive last night,
But if you saw me driving by
Well I must’ve took a wrong turn.
I must’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout somethin’ else
Had a melody in my head.
Yeah, maybe that’s why
I couldn’t sleep last night.

This ain’t no love song,
I just felt gettin’ my guitar on,
And singin’ a tune
Singin’ ‘bout you.
Yeah, feelin’ good and tappin’ my shoes.
And all this stuff I’m makin’ up,
Well, you probably won’t be hearin’ it on the radio,
But then you never know.
So baby if you want,
You can sing along,
But this ain’t no love song.

Love song, love song.
Singin’ to you baby,
Singin’ to you baby,
All night long.

Yeah, half this stuff I’m making up
Well you probably won’t be hearing it on the radio.
But then you never know.
So baby if you want you can sing along,
But this ain’t no love song.
Love song, love song.

This ain’t no love song

 

Colder Weather March 8, 2011

Filed under: The Blog — Lia Randazzo @ 10:23 AM

Song: Colder Weather

Artist: Zac Brown Band

Year: 2010

Lyrics:

She’d trade Colorado if he’d take her with him,
Closes the door before the winter lets the cold in,
And wonders if her love is strong enough to make him stay,
She’s answered by the tail lights
Shining through the window pane

(Chorus)
He said I wanna see you again
But I’m stuck in colder weather
Maybe tomorrow will be better
Can I call you then
She said you’re a ramblin’ man
And you ain’t ever gonna change
You gotta gypsy soul to blame
And you were born for leavin’

At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln,
The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin’,
And in the waitress’ eyes he sees the same ‘ol light a shinin’,
He thinks of Colorado
And the girl he left behind him

(Chorus)
He said I wanna see you again
But I’m stuck in colder weather
Maybe tomorrow will be better
Can I call you then
She said you’re a ramblin’ man
And you ain’t ever gonna change
You got a gypsy soul to blame
And you were born for leavin'(born for leavin’)

Well it’s a winding road
When your in the lost and found
You’re a lover I’m a runner
And we go ’round ‘n ’round
And I love you but I leave you
I don’t want you but I need you
You know it’s you that calls me back here baby

Oh I wanna see you again
But I’m stuck in colder weather
Maybe tomorrow will be better
Can I call you then
Cause I’m a ramblin’ man
I ain’t ever gonna change (I ain’t ever gonna change)
Gotta gypsy soul to blame
And I was born for leavin’ (born for leavin’)

And when I close my eyes I see you
No matter where I am
I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines
I’m with your ghost again
It’s a shame about the weather
But I know soon we’ll be together
And I can’t wait till then
I can’t wait till then

 

Pray For You March 7, 2011

Filed under: Song of the Day — Lia Randazzo @ 5:09 PM

Song: Pray For You

Artist: Jaron and The Long Road Home

Year: 2009

Lyrics:

I haven’t been to church since I don’t remember when
Things were going great ‘˜til they fell apart again
So I listened to the preacher as he told me what to do
He said you cant go hating others who have done wrong to you.
Sometimes we get angry, but we must not condemn.
Let the good Lord do His job and you just pray for them.

I pray your brakes go out running down a hill
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the
head like I’d like to
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you’re flying high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know wherever you are honey, I pray for you

I’m really glad I found my way to church
‘Cause I’m already feeling better and I thank God for his words.
Yeah I’m going take the high road,
And do what the preacher told me to do,
You keep messing up and I’ll keep praying for you.

I pray your tire blows out at 110.
I pray you pass out drunk with your best friend and wake up with
his and her tattoos.

I pray your brakes go out running down a hill.
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the
head like I’d like to.
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you’re flying high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know wherever you are, near or far, in your house or in your
car,
wherever you are honey, I pray for you.
I pray for you

 

God Love Her March 6, 2011

Filed under: Song of the Day — Lia Randazzo @ 4:29 PM

Song: God Love Her

Artist: Toby Keith

Year: 2008

Lyrics:

Just a girl born in Dixie, washed in the blood
And raised on the banks of the Mississippi mud
She always had a thing about fallin’ in love with a bad boy

Yeah, they could see it all comin’ but her daddy never dreamed
She’d grow up that fast, you know what I mean
The way a girl gets when she turns seventeen, kinda crazy

She’s a rebel child and a preacher’s daughter
She was baptized in dirty water
Her mama cried the first time they caught her with me
They knew they couldn’t stop her

She holds tight, me and the Bible
On the back seat of my motorcycle
Left her daddy standin’ there preachin’ to the choir, you see
God love her
Oh, me and God love her!

She kissed her mama goodbye, said I’ll be sure ‘n phone ya
She called her from a truck stop in Tucson Arizona
{ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/toby-keith-lyrics/god-love-her-lyrics.html }
With Amazing Grace, we made California line

And then my gypsy life started takin’ its toll
And the fast lane got empty and out of control
And just like an angel she saved my soul from the devil

Yeah, she’s a rebel child and a preacher’s daughter
She was baptized in dirty water
Her mama cried the first time they caught her with me
They knew they couldn’t stop her

She holds tight, me and the Bible
On the back seat of my motorcycle
Left her daddy standin’ there, preachin’ to the choir, you see
God love her
Oh, me and God love her!

Now she holds tight to me and the Bible
On the back seat of my motorcycle
Left her daddy standin’ there preachin’ to the choir, you see
God love her
Oh, me and God love her!

God love her
Me and God love her

 

Don’t Happen Twice March 5, 2011

Filed under: Song of the Day — Lia Randazzo @ 1:14 PM

Song: Don’t Happen Twice

Artist: Kenny Chesney

Year: 2000

Lyrics:

I haven’t seen you in forever
Oh you haven’t changed a bit
You didn’t think that I would remember
How could I forget

We sang Bobby McGhee on the hood of my car
Made a wish on every star
In that clear September sky
One bottle of wine and two Dixie cups
3 am I fell in love
For the first time in my life
Oh that’s something that just don’t happen twice

To this day I still taste that first kiss
How I prayed it wouldn’t end
In a way, seeing you like this
I guess it never really did

We sang Bobby McGhee on the hood of my car
Made a wish on every star
In that clear september sky
One bottle of wine and two Dixie cups
3 am I fell in love
For the first time in my life
That’s something that just don’t happen twice

One bottle of wine and two Dixie cups
3 am I fell in love
For the first time in my life
Oh that’s something, baby that’s something
Oh that’s something
That just don’t happen twice

Oh yeah

We sang Bobby McGhee on the hood of my car
Made a wish on every star
One bottle of wine and two Dixie cups
Yeah we fell in love

 

Picture To Burn March 4, 2011

Filed under: Song of the Day — Lia Randazzo @ 4:41 PM

Song: Picture To Burn

Artist: Taylor Swift

Year: 2008

Lyrics:

State the obvious,
I didn’t get my perfect fantasy
I realized you love yourself
More that you could ever love me
So go and tell your friends
That I’m obsessive and crazy,
That’s fine
I’ll tell mine
You’re gay,
And by the way,

I hate that stupid old pickup truck,
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really been a lie
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I’m concerned,
You’re just another picture to burn.

There’s no time for tears
I’m just sitting here planning my revenge
There’s nothing stopping me
From going out with all of your best friends
And if you come around saying’ sorry to me
My daddy’s going to show you how sorry you’ll be

‘Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck,
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really been a lie, yeah
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I’m concerned,
You’re just another picture to burn.

And if you’re missing me
You better keep it to yourself
‘Cause coming back around here
Would be bad for your health

‘Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck,
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really been a lie, yeah
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
In case you haven’t heard,

I really, really hate that stupid old pickup truck,
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really been a lie, yeah
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I’m concerned,
You’re just another picture to burn.
Burn, burn, burn, baby burn.
Just another picture to burn
Baby burn
