Track Name: For The Love of Me
For The Love Of Me by J. K. Coltrain


First Verse

She says she loves me but I don't know why
What is it in me that she sees
All I have to offer to her is my love
She says that's her only need
Sometimes I can't give her what money can buy
She says that's OK, I thank God that you're mine

Chorus

For the love of me, I'll never know
How a woman like her, could love me so
As hard as I try, I'll never know why
She does what she does
No I can't believe
For the love of me

Second Verse

Whenever I feel like I need a friend
She's always there by my side
I could not ask for anything more
She's gentle, she's loving, she's kind
The things that she does well they amaze me
To this very day I still can't believe

Repeat Chorus

End
Track Name: Some Bridges Just Won't Burn
Some Bridges Just Won't Burn

After her I thought it would be easy
I'd move on another lesson learned
I'd burn my bridges and I'd start all over
But some bridges just won't burn

Chorus
I'd tried to go to where memories wouldn't find

me
But all roads led right back to yesterday at

every turn
I could be in love again tomorrow, but some

bridges just won't burn

What chance is there of finding anybody
It's just no good as far as I'm concerned
My big mistake was thinkin I could leave her
Cause some bridges just won't burn

Chorus
I'd tried to go to where memories wouldn't find

me
But all roads led right back to yesterday at

every turn
I could be in love again tomorrow, but some

bridges just won't burn
No some bridges just won't burn
Track Name: Someday
SOMEDAY

When I was young
I dreamed of someday growing up
And falling in love
And I dreamed
That Someday I'd find
Someone to share my (everything)
And be there by my side

And girl I knew
The first time I laid eyes on you
That you were the one
And I prayed that Someday you'd be mine
So I could hold you in my arms each night
For the rest of my life

Chorus: 1
And Someday was standing in front of me
But I was too shy to speak
And couldn't find the words to say
But I knew deep within my heart
Girl I knew it from the start
Someday

Bridge:
And baby Someday
When we're old and Grey
We can look back on the life we've shared
And all the memories along the way

Chorus: 2
And Someday when we reach the promise land
Girl we'll stroll there hand in hand
Through that world that will never fade
And we'll walk by each others side
By the waters of life
Someday

Track Name: My Pain Ain't News
MY PAIN AIN’T NEWS


THEY TELL ME THE NEW COUNTRY
DON’T MAKE ROOM FOR NO MORE CRYING HEARTACHE SONGS
OR HEARTBREAK SONGS
BUT I CAN'T FIGHT WHAT I WRITE, AND MY PAIN AIN’T NEWS

Whether it’s country or Americana
Keep it perky and Pollyanna
Yes, brother, I understand the rules
Who wants songs about victims and losers
Crying over vixens and users?
Sure, I know the drill, but that still don’t help us fools

FULL CHORUS:
THEY TELL ME THE NEW COUNTRY
DON’T MAKE ROOM FOR NO MORE CRYING HEARTACHE SONGS
OR HEARTBREAK SONGS
SO WHAT CAN I DO? I WISH I WAS OVER YOU
TO CHART WELL, PLAY AND SELL
THEY’RE IN THE MARKET FOR POSITIVE, UPBEAT TUNES
NOT NEGATIVE, ACHING BLUES
BUT I CAN'T FIGHT WHAT I WRITE, AND MY PAIN AIN’T NEWS

You broke my heart in a million pieces
Every day the pain increases
Love’s left me spinning here in space
They want songs that are well-adjusted
But since my heart got busted
I can’t live the lie, or glue the smile back on my face

THEY TELL ME THE NEW COUNTRY
DON’T MAKE ROOM FOR NO MORE CRYING HEARTACHE SONGS
OR HEARTBREAK SONGS
SO WHAT CAN I DO? OH, WHAT CAN I DO?

I’d be wealthy if my songs were healthy
I’d be so uplifting if I wasn’t drifting
I’d write about how love is like a good luck charm
If I had you back in my arms

REPEAT FULL CHORUS
(Spoken)
It don’t fill you with inspiration? Well, let’s try some affirmations: Every day and every way I’m getting – so confused, why can’t a little misery be news anymore? I don’t get all this happy honkytonk music, it ain’t natural . . . I don’t understand . . .
