"Can't Back Down" (2002)

Gypsy Honeymoon lyrics - Collin Raye

Outta her head
And outta her dreams
There he was just the way she's seen him
Lookin' at her a thousand times before

Said I can't believe
It's been five long years
Cause tonight they just seen to disappear
You still look the same
You haven't changed at all

She said take me away with you
We can ride on the wind
Cause I feel a gypsy honeymoon
Comin' around again
Throw the car in gear
Put the zoom on the lens
Cause we're hot as a gyspy honeymoon
Comin' around again

He said I still remember
Her sweet perfume
When it filled his head
And it rocked the room
The walked the wire of passion
So alive

It's hard to hold on
In these times
Did one of us change
Was it yours or mine
You just can't imagine
How lonely I've been

She said take me away with you
We can ride on the wind
Cause I feel a gypsy honeymoon
Comin' around again
Throw the car in gear
Put the zoom on the lens
Cause we're hot as a gyspy honeymoon
Comin' around again

We chase our hearts like open fires
Give ourselves to old desires
Surrender sweet
And here we go again

She said take me away with you
We can ride on the wind
Cause I feel a gypsy honeymoon
Comin' around again
Throw the car in gear
Put the zoom on the lens
Cause we're hot as a gyspy honeymoon
Comin' around again

It Could Be That Easy lyrics - Collin Raye


You were packed and ready to go
To your sister's
Back in Ohio
I knew you'd made up your mind
I couldn't stop you
And you didn't want me to try
The door was open
I watched you go
And I knew it was over
But I didn't know

It could be that easy
To walk away
It could be that easy
To make a change
If the heart is willin'
To start all over again
It was hard to believe
But you showed me
It could be that easy

Three weeks of bein' alone
Has left me seeing
What I should've seen all along
Your love means so much more
Than I ever told you
Than I ever showed you before
Now the car is running
And there's a sign out on the lawn
I'm packed and ready
To give up everything I own

It could be that easy
To walk away
It could be that easy
To make a change
If the heart is willing
To start all over again
It was hard to believe
But you showed me
It could be that easy

It could be that easy
To make a change
Build a new tomorrow
From yesterday
If the heart is willin'
To start all over again
Ohhh
Then so can we
Oh you gotta believe
It could be that easy

Baby, it could be that easy

Ain't Nobody Gonna Take That From Me lyrics - Collin Raye

I remember when baseball was everything
It was Little League, but what a big game
There were two men on and one man out
I got a fastball hangin' outside
I swung that bat with all my might
And the ball was gone
They say I knocked the cover off
It was the only homer that I ever had
You shoulda seen my dad

And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holdin' on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
The devil on a good day ain't that strong
I'm keepin' it here inside me
As long as I live and breathe
The ball was soarin' and the crowd was roarin'
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

I was nineteen, it was a good job
Movin' TVs on a loading dock
'Til the boss said, "Son
Try to lose every seventh one
I got it worked out with a good friend
Keep your mouth shut, and we'll cut you in
Now what do you say
Don't you want to be rich one day"
I lost a real good job that night
But I kept my pride

And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holdin' on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
The devil on a good day ain't that strong
I'm keepin' it here inside me
As long as I live and breathe
I said goodbye with my head held high
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

And sometimes it feels like
My best years are behind me
Then somehow, out of nowhere
Something sneaks up to remind me
Like this mornin', I woke up
To a little voice that spoke up
Sayin', "Daddy, please
Fix a bowl of Rice Krispies
You're the bestest friend that I ever had
You know I love you Dad"

And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holdin' on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
The devil on a good day ain't that strong
I'm keepin' it here inside me
As long as I live and breathe
I got more than I ever asked for
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

What I Need lyrics - Collin Raye

I knew all the answers
The way my life should go
And when I used to say my prayers
I would tell God so
It seemed He wasn't listening
I thought He didn't care
But lookin' back
It's plain to see
He was always there

'Cause I prayed for strength
And I got pain that made me strong
I prayed for courage
And got fear to overcome
When I prayed for faith
My empty heart brought me to my knees
I don't always get what I want
I get what I need

I'm not sayin' that it's easy
Or that it doesn't hurt
When nothing seems to go my way
Nothing seems to work
These days I'm getting better
At goin' with the flow
Accepting that sometimes the answer
To a prayer is no

'Cause I prayed for strength
And I got pain that made me strong
I prayed for courage
And got fear to overcome
When I prayed for faith
My empty heart brought me to my knees
I don't always get what I want
I get what I need

Every time I've had a door slammed in my face
In time a better one was opened in its place

I prayed for strength
And I got pain that made me strong
I prayed for courage
And got fear to overcome
When I prayed for faith
My empty heart brought me to my knees
I don't always get what I want
I get what I need

Oh I don't always get what I want
I get what I need

Dancing With No Music Playing lyrics - Collin Raye

Me in my rented tuxedo, you in your big sister’s dress
I could hear my own heart beating, when you laid your head on my chest.
No telling how long it was since the last song
With the band gone and the lights all faded.
All alone on that gym floor, dancing with no music playing.

Me in my rented tuxedo, you in your mama’s white dress
Rice in your hair, your shoes in one hand, and one hand caressing my neck.
The light from the moon filled that old hotel room
As my hands closed around your waist.
And we were holding each other, dancing with no music playing

Ohhhh, there’s nothing to say
Youuu take me away
Dancing with no music playing
Oh, dancing with no music playing

[instrumental]

Me in my old faded Levi’s, you in your blue cotton dress
Time it don’t have no effect on the way that you still steal my breath.
As we spin once more across the cold kitchen floor,
Your warm cheek touches my face,
And I could die in your arms, dancing with no music playing
Oh, I could die in your arms, dancing with no music playing

Mmm
Dancing with no music playing

You Always Get To Me lyrics - Collin Raye

We're talkin' on the phone
A million miles away
You crawl inside the line
You snake into my mind
You always get to me

You're like a glass of sweet red wine
I spill on my white shirt
Color of pleasure and pain
Your picture's in the stain
You always get to me

(You always get to me)
I'm under your thumb
Girl you're under my skin
(You always get to me)
Right before the beginning of the end
When I'm hangin' by a thread (Ahh ah)
There's a circus in my head (Ahh ah)
I'm in a lonely state of mind
You always get to me
Your love rescues me
You always get to me
Just in time

Love ain't some masquerade
To wear a plastic face
You strip off my disguise
You see the good inside
You always get to me, yeah

(You always get to me)
I'm under your thumb
Girl you're under my skin
(You always get to me)
Right before the beginning of the end
When I'm hangin' by a thread (Ahh ah)
There's a circus in my head (Ahh ah)
I'm in a lonely state of mind
You always get to me
Your love rescues me
You always get to me
Just in time

(You always get to me)
I'm under your thumb
Girl you're under my skin
(You always get to me)
Right before the beginning of the end
When I'm hangin' by a thread (Ahh ah)
There's a circus in my head (Ahh ah)
I'm in a lonely state of mind
You always get to me
Your love rescues me
You always get to me
Just in time

Oh
(You always get to me)
You're my net when I'm fallin'
The answer when I'm callin'
(You always get to me)
You're the stars in my darkness
My faith when I'm heartless
(You always get to me)
You break down the walls and set me free
(You always get to me)
You always get to me
Girl, you always get to me
(You always get to me)
You always get to me
Yeah
(You always get to me)
Oh whoa whoa whoa

End Of The World lyrics - Collin Raye

I was lost
On the outside
I almost gave up
I almost put love aside
Then I saw you
A little spark, then a flame
I felt the blood rush a million miles an hour
Through my veins
I'm not ready for this
One last breath and a kiss
'Cause my heart knows you're the one
And baby living without you
Would mean living is done
I'd say

Turn off the sun
Take down the moon
Eliminate the words "I love you"
There would be no point
No reason to live
Without you girl
Losing you would mean
The end of the world

So stop the war
Bring back the light
Life without you
Would be like autumn leaves
In black and white
Didn't we have it all
More depth than the sea
It's cruel to take a fragile heart
And promise love that life can't keep
I'm not ready to fall
Just let go of it all
'Cause I don't wanna love just to lose
I heard it's sad
But the life you live is the life that you choose
But without you

Turn off the sun
Take down the moon
Eliminate the words "I love you"
There would be no point
No reason to live
Without you girl
Losing you would mean
The end of the world

Everywhere I see your face
(I see your face)
I see your grace
And then it's gone
I can't walk on
I can't walk on

Turn off the sun

Oh, there would be no point
No reason to live
'Cause without you girl
Losing you would mean
The end of the world

One Desire lyrics - Collin Raye

 in the night
Like a raging fire, you’re my one desire,
One desire--

One desire, one desire-- oh!

Like a raging fire, all I ever need, oh

Young As We're Ever Gonna Be lyrics - Collin Raye

Everyone tells them that they’re too young to know
‘Bout the ways of the world and curves that fate can throw
They’d never ask for much with their backs against the wall
He turns to her, says, baby tonight let’s take it all

‘Cause tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be
These may be the best days of our lives
Who knows as we grow older if we’ll ever feel this free
Tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be

A man and a woman who’ve been left behind
Knowing age is the enemy of hearts and minds
The freedom of faith has made them reckless and sincere
He says, darlin’ we’ve got one last chance at some magic here

‘Cause tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be
These may be the best days of our lives
Who knows as we grow older if we’ll ever feel this free
Tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be

Everywhere you look there’s caution outside lookin’ in
Searchin’ for that perfect circumstance
But time never has stood still and it ain’t about to start
The sidelines are covered with wreckage of wasted hearts

‘Cause tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be
These may be the best days of our lives
Who knows as we grow older if we’ll ever feel this free
Tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be
Oh
‘Cause tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be
These may be the best days of our lives
Who knows as we grow older if we’ll ever feel this free
Tonight we are as young as we’re ever gonna be
Oh, tonight

Dear Life lyrics - Collin Raye

I watched you begin, my child, See you fading in your father’s face.
For the first time I’m in the mirror, looking both ways
At where I’ve been and where I’m headed
It makes me want to live each day like I may not get it.

Dear Life, from my very first breath,
You were one step ahead
Of where I thought I was going
Dear Life,when I loved and I lost
Somehow at all cost
You kept me holdin’ on, for
Dear Life, through the healing and scars
Through all you’ve showed me so far
I see how precious you are, Dear Life.

I was bound to give away my heart and have it handed back to me
Until you led me to the one that was always meant to be
I’d’ve never known joy if I never knew sorrow
When I didn’t know how to face tomorrow

Dear Life, from my very first breath,
You were one step ahead
Of where I thought I was going
Dear Life,when I loved and I lost
Somehow at all cost
You kept me holdin’ on, for
Dear Life, through the healing and scars
Through all you’ve showed me so far
I see how precious you are, Dear Life.

For once I’m gonna rest in the arms of the unknown
And wait to watch you unfold

Dear Life, from my very first breath,
You were one step ahead
Of where I thought I was going
Dear Life,when I loved and I lost
Somehow at all cost
You kept me holdin’ on, for
Dear Life, through the healing and scars
Through all you’ve showed me so far
I see how precious you are, Dear Life.

What I Did For Love lyrics - Collin Raye

Everybody's heart is torn and tattered
Mine was not designed for giving up
'Cause all I've ever done that really matters
Is what I did for love

So count me with the wounded and the shaken
Even when I'm barely standing up
I've tried to offer more than I have taken
That's what I did for love

What I did for love
I gave everything
And I hope that you can see
All that love has given me

When they sit and list the reasons I existed
I'm afraid it won't add up to very much
'Cause I gathered all I had and gladly risked it
That's what I did for love
Yeah

What I did for love
I gave everything
And I hope that you can see
All that love has given me

Someday I may silently surrender
When this old heart has finally had enough
But I hope that I will always be remembered
By what I did for love
See all I've ever done that really matters
Is what I did for love

I Can Let Go Now lyrics - Collin Raye

It was so right
It was so wrong
Almost at the same time
The pain and ache
A heart can take
No one really knows
When the memories cling
And keep you there
'Til you no longer care
And you can let go now

It's wrong for me
To cling to you
Somehow I just needed time
From what was to be
It's not like me
To hold somebody down
But I was tossed high by love
Almost never came down
Only to land here
But love's no longer found
Where I'm no longer bound
And I can let go now

I can let go now

"Tracks" (2000)

She's All That lyrics - Collin Raye

She was singin' "Love Me Tender" at the local karaoke
I knew right then and there I had found my one and only
She takes my breath away everytime I see her
Just couldn't wait for all my boys to meet her
She's got season tickets and sweet pouty lips
She's all that, well equipped

She's all that, she loves to ride in my pickup truck
She's all that, Mom and Daddy can't believe my luck
She's all that, she looks so good we never wait in line
She's all that, she's all mine

She can throw a split finger and she's got her own glove
When she sinks a twenty footer, man I know I'm in love
Saturday night she's like a time bomb tickin'
She looks better on Sunday than Mama's fried chicken
She only gets mad when she missed SportsCenter
She's all that, even tempered

She's all that, she swings a nine handicap
She's all that, she looks sexy in a baseball cap
She's all that, she makes me want to lay it all on the line
She's all that, she's all mine

Whoa she's a perfect combination
Whoa got my defense off the field
Whoa every day's an education
Got my head a spinnin' like a spoke inside a wheel

She's all that, I'm in touch with her feminine side
She's all that, let me tell you man, it's one sweet ride
She's all that, a humdinger,boy, straight off the blocks
She's all that, no doubt about it, the girl rocks
The girl's all that
The girl's all that
The girl's all that
Going home to baby sure is fine
She's all that, she's all mine
She's all that, she's all mine
She's all that
