One Track Heart - jimmy white

Lyrics:

Katy Did

Met her in a sleazy club, much too late one night
She was dancing to a song, underneath a flashing light
Well that’s about all that I remember
Seems it’s more like I can’t forget
Cause she took me home
And she took me down
And I ain’t got over it yet

Oh of anyone who loved me
No one ever done it
Like Katy did
Oh of anyone who loved me
No one ever done it
Like Katy did
Not like Katy did
Sure not like Katy did

You think there’s certain places you find a lover
And then there’s certain places you don’t
So I never gave her a second thought
She said “don’t bother”
I said “I won’t”
Well I don’t feel quite so above her now
But she’s gone so what can I do
Others come
Others go
But Katy they don’t do it like you

CHORUS

“Not like Katy did”
Some old words I keep hearing in my mind
“Not like Katy did”
After every new love that I find
“Not like Katy did”
The hottest lovers leave me cold
Sure not like Katy did

CHORUS

 

Change My Life

I never expected to feel this way
I never suspected I’d want to say
The things to you
That I want to
I never thought that a love could grow
From something that started out so slow
But I know how I feel
And I know that it’s for real

You make me want to change my life
You make me want to turn around
And call it lost, at any cost
And call you found
You make me want to love you more
Then anything I’ve done before
I only want to hold you tight
Each and every night
You make me want to change my life

I thought that my life was set
But you showed me that it wasn’t yet
Now I’m up in the air
But I don’t really care
Cause I’m crazy as a man can be
For you, and the thought of you loving me
Now I’ve got to know
Baby should I stay
Or should I go

CHORUS

Change my life
You make me want to
Change my life

 

One Track Heart

Starlight eyes, sunlight smile
I’ve loved you, baby all this while
But you’re so cold and I’m so blind
Cause every time, I try to change my mind

This one track heart keeps sayin
You are where I’m stayin
There’s no use in playin games
Cause baby my one track heart
Ain’t gonna change

Stand me up, knock me out
Your power trip, ain’t what love’s about
But a closer look sees the hurt inside
A frightened girl who’s just afraid to try
So my

CHORUS

Open up
And let your guard down
I’ll always love you
I’ll never leave you
I’ll always be around

Cause my one track heart keeps sayin
You are where I’m stayin
There’s no use in playin games
Cause baby my
One track heart
Ain’t gonna change
Sure ain’t gonna change now

 

She’s Probably On The Parkway

She’s probably on the Parkway now
Around exit 105
She hasn’t known him very long
But he must be worth the drive
My heart hears her “I love you’s” call
But my head knows very well, that

She’s probably on the Parkway now
She must be on the Parkway now
She’s surely on the Parkway now
Just as sure as I’m in hell

She’s probably on the Parkway now
Cause she can’t stand suspense
She’s so afraid that love must die
She kills in self defense
I can almost see the Belmar sign
Asbury Park as well

CHORUS

She’s just a frightened girl, I know, who wants to run away
I know she really loves me cause she’s so afraid to stay
She thinks a token lover, will make me leave her flat
And justify her deepest fears
And I’m afraid
That it just might
At that

She’s probably off the Parkway now, stepping foot abroad his ship
She won’t be coming back tonight, cause it’s just too long a trip
I won’t sleep at all tonight,
And in the morning not too well
She’ll be on the Parkway then
Heading North-back again
She’ll be on the Parkway then
I’ll still be here in hell
Oh I’ll still be here
In hell

 

One Hand Clapping

I remember times when we never thought it’d end
And I remember you
You were my lover and my friend
But that was long ago and I can’t remember why
We ever said hello,
Or we ever said good-bye
And I wonder baby
I wonder baby

Where you go when you hear the sound
Of a broken heart falling to the ground
Are there words to explain the sound
Of one hand clapping- it’s the sound of loneliness
One hand clapping- its the voice of emptiness
One hand clapping- its the sound of loneliness
It’s the voice of emptiness

I hear the radio, the songs are not the same
But somewhere out there I know
Two more begin the game
I envy them their youth
Cry for their innocence
On the day they wake to find
It no longer needs defense
And I wonder baby
I wonder baby

CHORUS

And I wonder
What becomes of the broken hearted?
Where do the lonely people go?
Does the sun catch you crying?
Oh Caroline, No
And I wonder

CHORUS

Where do you go when you hear the sound
Of your heart, breaking on the ground
Where do you go when you hear the sound?

My My Maria

All around the island I have made myself
I never had the space for anyone else
But floating to me gently
Maria came to shore
And I found this island had room
For just one more
Now I say

My my, my my Maria
Dancing to the music
I never thought
Anyone else could hear
My my, my my Maria
I can hardly believe it’s true
My my, my my Maria
Can you?

Helpless, or so happy
Neither could I be
They weren’t words
You’d ever apply to me
But then nothing on this island
Will ever be the same
Like every time the earth moves
When I say her name
When I say

CHORUS

I’d have never known this wonder
Here in my own world
The joy and love that I could find
From just one girl
Like you

CHORUS

Oh my Maria

You Gave Me

Never thought you’d come along
But now I’m glad that I was wrong
You showed me love
Strong and true
But most of all
You gave me you
Most of all
You gave me you

And you gave me sun when I had rain
You brought me love to ease the pain
And you had the sight to see me through
But most of all,
You gave me you
Most of all
You gave me you

When I’m down you make me high
And when I’m stuck you lead me by
And when you’re here
It feels so great
That if you’re not
Baby I can’t wait
No if you’re not
I just can’t wait

CHORUS

I Can Take A Heartache

Well she didn’t have to let me, discover it like this
She could’ve left me gently, with a final kiss
She didn’t have to think that, I couldn’t take the blow
I never liked the cliché, he was the last to know
I was the last to know, but

Its alright, I can take a heartache
To find love, well you’ve gotta take a chance
It’s alright, I can take a heartache
In search of, the right love

Nothing good comes easy, and sometimes it’s so tough
But you’ve gotta keep it ready, for that diamond in the rough
And I thought I saw her glitter, but the sparkle I supplied
And I suppose I should be bitter, but this failure’s just the price
For tomorrow’s paradise

CHORUS

That’s why I’m sayin’ it’s alright
I can take a heartache
Nothing ventured nothing gained
Said it’s alright
I can take a heartache
In search of
The right love

Oh it’s alright
I can take a heartache
To find love,
Well you gotta take a chance
Said it’s alright
I can take a heartache
To find love
You’ve gotta take a chance

I can take a heartache
