Almost Over You
(Cindy Richardson-Walker/Jennifer Kimball)

I saw an old friend of ours today
She asked about you and I didn't quite know what to say
Heard you've been makin' the rounds round here
While I've been tryin' to make the tears disappear
Chorus

Now I'm almost over you
I've almost shook these blues
So when you come back around
After painting the town you'll see
That I'm almost over you
You're such a sly one with your cold, cold heart
For you leavin' come easy but it tore me apart
Time heals all wounds they say and I should know
'Cause it seems like forever but I'm lettin' you go
Chorus

I can forgive you and soon I'll forget all my shattered dreams
You took the love that you wanted and left me the misery
Chorus

Already Somebody's Lover
(Mark Spiro)

Maybe he lives in the city
Workin' on a college degree
Or maybe he's a boy in Paris
Tryin' to paint a picture of me
Chorus

So I'm sorry that I can't go any further with you
And tonight may be a night I'll regret
But I'm already somebody's lover
He just hasn't found me yet
Maybe he works on the railroad
Or he's drivin' from town to town
Saving his pay for our wedding day
Then he's gonna settle down
He's just lookin' for a girl to send some flowers to
He's as honest and true as they get
See I'm already somebody's lover
He just hasn't found me yet
I see his face in my dreams every night
And I wake up with the taste on my lips
And he'll never pack it in or walk out on me
The way my father did
Chorus

A Rain Of Angels
(Michael Dulaney/Jannie Littlepage)

He prays for the harvest
To bring a record yield
Five generations counting
On his work out in these fields
The only life he knows
Is the soil that he tills
And if the drought don't take it all
He knows the banker will

He's waiting for a rain of angels
To turn these dusty acres
Back to a fertile plain
Reward him for his labor
Put his life back in his hands
He's waiting for a rain of angels

Somewhere in the city
In the hours before dawn
She huddles in a doorway
To dream her hunger gone
Forgotten by the cold world
Frightened by her own
She sips a little whiskey
To forget she is alone

She's waiting for a rain of angels
To lift her from the shadows
To give her back her name
Turn back all the pages
Give her shelter from the storm
She's waiting for a rain of angels

And all the places where the battle lines are drawn
When the bullets fly
It doesn't matter what side you're standing on
Give the farmer back his land
Pull the helpless from the street
Take the guns out of our hands
And we will be within the angel's reach

Call down through the ages
Wash away the pain
Only love will remain
We're all waiting for
Still waiting for a rain of angels

Waiting for a rain of angels
Waiting for a rain of angels
Waiting for a rain of angels

Changing Faces
(Lila McCann/Mark Spiro)

At first I didn't understand when she walked through the door
You let go of my hand and then I knew there must be more
I tried to tell myself that you were only friends
But your eyes betrayed the smile you gave
And I knew right there and then

You were changing faces
Right before my eyes
One for her and one for me
And then I realized
Changing faces
That moment I was sure
I'd be changing places with her

Please don't introduce me, don't be so polite
Tomorrow I'll get over you if I just get through tonight
I don't think I can stand it while she's standing over therev If you just want someone on your arm
Then she's the one to wear

You were changing faces
Right before my eyes
One for her and one for me
And then I realized
Changing faces
That moment I was sure
I'd be changing places with her

I think I'm gonna walk away
Head right for the door
Maybe I should stay and fight
But look what I'd be fighting for
I wanted so much more

Changing faces
That moment I was sure
While you were changing faces
I'd be changing places with her

Changing faces
The look that did you in
One for her and one for me
Now I can't go back again

Changing faces
That moment I was sure
I'd be changing places with her

Changing faces
Right before my eyes
One for her and one for me
Neither one I recognized

Changing faces
That moment I was sure
I'd be changing places with her

Down Came A Blackbird
(Mark Spiro/Micheal Smotherman)

Down came a blackbird
Set on a fence
Talkin' in riddles
Makin' no sense
Cause she's gone
You're baby's gone
Down came a blackbird
Perched on pole
Took out a mirror
And said, "Son, behold"
Cause she's gone
Your baby's gone

Gone like a dollar spent on a drink
Head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like the wind through a cabin door
Never gonna blow that way no more
Gone like the song of a mockingbird
Laughing at every little thing he heard
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke
She ain't comin' back and it ain't no joke
She's gone
You're baby's gone
Down came a blackbird
Set by the fire
Said "the future's comin' at you like a freight train
And you're walkin' a wire
Cause she's gone
You're baby's gone

Gone like a dollar spent on a drink
Head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke
She ain't comin' back and it ain't no joke
She's gone
You're baby's gone

She says she doesn't want a man who hangs around the house
Who doesn't say a word unless he's shootin' off his mouth
There's got to be a better way to be a lovin' wife
If she stays here she'll end up her waitress for life

Down came a blackbird
Set on a fence
Talkin' in riddles
And makin' absolutely perfect sense
Cause she's gone
You're baby's gone

Gone like a dollar spent on a drink
Head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like the wind through a cabin door
Never gonna blow that way no more
Gone like the song of a mockingbird
Laughing at every little thing he heard
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke
She ain't comin' back and it ain't no joke
She's gone
You're baby's gone

Down came a blackbird
Down came a blackbird

I Feel For You
(Buddy Brock/Shara Johnson)

We keep running into each other
You keep talkin' about your lover
How it's fallin' apart
And she's breaking your heart
Well I hate to see you hurtin'
And I'm sorry that it's not working
What do you want from me
You've got my sympathy
Chorus

I feel for you
Oh I Feel for you
I know what it's like
To reach out at night
For someone to hold onto
I feel for you
Since you left me for someone new
Don't come to me now
When you know how
I feel for you

I could easily be persuaded
To take you back but I'm too afraid it'd
Hurt me even more than it did before
And it'd be the same old story
You'd leave another heartache for me
Oh how I wish I could help
But I've got to think of myself
Chorus

I Wanna Fall In Love
(Mark Spiro/Buddy Brock)

Look at me now
Won't you listen to my heart
Cryin' out loud
I've been standing in the dark

I want someone to show me the way
I'm lost on a lonely road
There must be a light at the end of the tunnel
Before I go out of control
Chorus

I wanna fall in love
I wanna feel that rush
Runnin' into my heart, shakin' up my soul
Feelin' like I've never felt before
I wanna fall in love
I wanna feel that touch
I've only dreamed about it, I've been livin' without it
And that ain't good enough
I wanna fall in love

Somewhere out there
Someone else is searchin' like me
And I know he must be hurtin'
Maybe tonight he's walkin' down
The same road I've been takin'
And we'll meet up without even talkin'
And he'll know what I'm sayin'
Chorus

Maybe tonight he's walkin' down
The same road I've been takin'
And we'll meet up without even talkin'
And he'll know what I'm sayin'
I wanna fall. . .
Chorus

Just One Little Kiss
(Kim Carnes/Greg Barnhill)

I thought you were just a friend
Someone I could talk to when I needed a shoulder
Seemed like just another night
Somehow you just happened by
But you knew better
I found out when we kissed
Chorus

And oh, just one little kiss
And now I know what I missed
Baby all my life and I was not expecting this
Now you got me where I live
With just one little kiss

They say things we leave unsaid
They just turn into regrets
When nights get long and lonely
Somehow baby you got through
I've been waiting for you too
I didn't know, I found out when we kissed
Chorus

You think that love forsakes you
Then by surprise it takes ahold
Chorus

Please Help Me I'm Falling (In Love With You)
(Hal Blair/Don Robertson)
from "Traveller Soundtrack"

Please help me I'm falling
In love with you
Close the door to temptation
Don't let me walk through
Turn away from me darlin'
I'm beggin' you to
Please help me I'm falling
In love with you

I belong to another
Whose arms have grown cold
But I promised forever
To have and to hold
So I can never be free
But when I'm with you
I know that I'm losing
The will to be true

Please help me I'm falling
And that would be a sin
Close the door to temptation
Don't let me walk in
Lord, I mustn't want you
But darlin' I do
Please help me I'm falling
In love with you

Please help me I'm falling
In love with you

Saddle My Dreams
(Mark Spiro/Tim Pierce)

I'm a restless girl
That's right
And I'm gonna be free 'til the day I die
I can't hang around
This one-horse town
I want to fly like an eagle flies
And I won't give up
'Cause I've gone too far
I'm gonna circle the wagons
'Round my lucky star
Chorus

Gonna saddle my dreams and away I'll fly
Baby wishes have wings and so do I
I wanna ride like the wind 'til the sun sinks low
Saddle my dreams wherever I go

By the harvest moon
I'll be on my way
Into the arms of a no-man's land
And I won't settle down
And I won't give in
'Cause I'll pick myself back up and do it over again
'Cause I want your love
Gonna take my shot
And I won't give in 'til I get what I want
Chorus

I want the wind in my hair
The sun on my face
Gonna spread my soul around
All over the place
Gonna stick to my guns
No I ain't gonna change
'Til I find my perfect little home on the range

Chorus twice

Gonna saddle my dreams
Whoooooo
I wanna ride like the wind 'til the sun sinks low
Saddle my dreams wherever I go

Yippy Ky Yay
(Mark Spiro/Andrew Gold)

Hey pretty boy whatcha pullin' on me
Ya think you got it all wrapped up
Lyin' in the shade of the sycamore tree
Sorry, but it just ain't enough
You gotta do better than talk the big talk
Or an occasional courtesy call
I ain't seen roses and I ain't seen a thing
Of what love's got to do with it all

If you wanna steal a kiss
Then you've gotta steal a piece of my heart
You're a pretty little boy, but a fumblin' fool
If you're goin' for a tumble in the dark
Chorus

My oh my have you got a lot to learn
You've got to wrap me up in romance
Before you crash and burn
And if you never call me to blow my heart away
Yippy ky yay
(Yippy yippy yippy yippy yippy ky yay
Yippy yippy yippy ky yo
You wanna dance to the rhythm of a country girl
Boy you got a long way to go)

Would it hurt so much to open my door
Or send me a flower or two
'Cause I believe in love like the good book says
Not the gospel according to you
You can't two-step around step number one
And then skip down to three and four
You can't touch me with a ten-foot pole
'Til you back off a little bit more

If you wanna steal a kiss
Then you've gotta steal a piece of my heart
You're a pretty little boy, but a fumblin' fool
If you're goin' for a tumble in the dark
Chorus

I know what you want
And there are times I want it too
But I'm lookin' for a gentleman
Who knows just what to do
And I can take the boots and jeans
And even your beat-up Cadillac
But when it comes to what a woman needs
You ain't no Cary Grant

Hey, hey, oh
Chorus Twice

Yippy ky yay
