"This is to me the direction to go...I like the list of things idea coming back but with fresh rhymes and words...love "ultimatums" and "different view" is in the rhyming spot...so play with how you can rhyme "different way" or an internal rhyme...that would be super cool--"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( credit to Keith Curtis for “try to be kind”) ( resubmitted from a previous round)"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"Love how "mistaken" lands at the end of line 2. I'd play around with saying

"I could show you how
Maybe you're mistaken"

then I'd write 5 more first lines with that second line...stretching out past what you have is a great trick for getting even better stuff!

another one...notice how I grow the story with this opening:

"You think you're so sure now
But maybe you're mistaken"

But what if you're mistaken

But I know you're mistaken

and on and on!! "

Lyric by kayly:

"I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"great first line and like second line but if you notice the accent is on the first syllable over the melody on "sink in" so that when you sing it is sounds more like "sinkin" ....when you would speak sink in the accent would be on "in" in normal speech...so it weakens the line to stretch the seams like that...."

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I could talk all day / hopin’ it will sink in / find a way / make you see why / you’d still say / I’m just wasting your time / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

"what is the "its"? hmmm would be great to explore how life is beautiful, strange and kind...?"

(more)

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"Ha ha ha...this one made me smile!"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / goes back to when we both were nine"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"LOVE the "might as well" idea...especially starting second line. what could the ending of that be that's not an "I" vowel so we don't have 4 in a row?"

Lyric by kayly:

"I’m never gonna change your mind / I might as well rearrange the sky"

Hope lives beyond the heartache / moving all the mountains / we steal those moments, take that break / they crumble by the thousands

No comments

We climb above the storm / reach into the heavens / pull down sunlight soft and warm / our stolen moment’s lessons
The downpour shakes our souls / caught up in the deluge / we rise up strong and bold / there’s nothing that we can’t do
Castles we may build / made of myths and legends / all we really need to steal / are moments we imagine
Planets stand in stillness / clocks forget to wind / moments stolen, full of realness / glorious and hard to find

No comments

When nights collide with days / taking darkness hostage / light will ride the waves / and give us back our lost edge
Golden sun above / announces dark defeated / stolen moments filled with love / are quiet, no words needed (resubmitted)
Just one star that moves / just one ray the sun sends / light breaks through for me and you / these moments in the dark end
In light’s open door / live each moment stolen / like we’ll never have one more / and have the heart to hold them
So right here right now / dark can’t take us under / we’ll live with hearts full out / like lightening and the thunder
Midnight rolls the dice / clock’s against the darkness / stolen moments over ice / melt wherever the heart is
Whispers fall in love / hear the noise no longer / stolen moments, just enough / to dream a dream much stronger

No comments

Golden sun above / announces dark defeated / stolen moments filled with love / are quiet, no words needed
Something in the air / makes the moments sweeter / stolen hours from the past / life lanterns, story weavers

No comments

Moments grab our hearts / pull us close together / nothing breaks us, even dark / we shine beneath the pressure
Falling into peace / beautiful and glowing / stolen moments, hear them speak / the sound of heartbeats slowing

No comments

Shadows cry and leave / done with their dark mission / stolen moments, time to breathe / for us a welcome vision
Tranquil seas of blue / like a jewel glisten / stolen moments, me and you / just hearts that hear and listen
Lessons learned somehow / at seventy or seven / stolen moments give us now / a little piece of heaven
Daylight fills the dawn / we bask in stolen hours / moments made for us alone / steal all of dark’s strong power
Heartbeats break the spell / stolen moments rhythm / leaving light where darkness fell / and all we love stays with them
Will we wish for the chance to redo this life’s dance to change all the wrong into right
We’ll wish for more moments / when dark was upon us / we’d fought back with all of our might
It’s a dream / that recurs / drives us mad / touches nerves / so we pray / for the day / sleep we fight
Can our hearts still believe / what our eyes cannot see / that faith rips the dark from the night
But the chance to get out / in front of our doubt / looks good if our hearts can keep quiet
Sword and shield we keep close / to protect what means most / dark leaves and doesn’t think twice

No comments

We will long for our youth / and the moments of truth / and wish we had wasted no time
Still we shine in our soul / in the heart we are whole /the dark is no match for its might
We will think of the place / we all fell from grace / and search for a way back from night
Will we fail this last test / will we try, do our best / to change, cleanse the heart, just in time
Take the key / turn the lock / now our mind / off the clock / can’t touch / what was never / in sight
Wide awake, dreams are gone / back to earth, we are home / to run toward the sun, shining bright

No comments

We will wish for more time / not to spend our last dime / but to laugh and hold loved ones tight
‘Tho a dream, makes us think / life can leave in a blink / so we chase it with all of our might
And we hear darkness roar / right behind heaven’s door / we know it’s a dream of the night
In between two masters / on the verge of disaster / our should haves and could haves will fight
Giving up’s not our style / there are angels for miles / and dark is no longer in sight
Then we stick to our plan / to cling to the man / who’s brought us this far out of night

No comments

In the midst of the doubt / hoping hope brings us out / faith wins this blind fight with the night
Angels pull us aside / in the blink of an eye / we soar like an eagle in flight
But the anguish of the past / like a fragment of glass / keeps piercing and searing our souls
Black storms rage like a jealous lover / once again we run for cover / hiding and riding it out
Just when we think it’s done / new clouds that weigh a ton / come blasting and casting their spell

No comments

In our haste we overlook / the shadows sunset took / while we’re sleeping they’re creeping around

No comments

Still we’re pushed and pulled back / freight trains off the track / plunged into dungeons in chains
Now the night holds its breath / to summon sunlight's death / how we long for a strong star to shine
But are we drawn to the flames / does the dark call our name / do we set fires, get higher, by choice

No comments

Now the pendulum swings / rain falls on angel wings / and we’re back to the black truth unfazed

No comments

When the stress in full force / pounds our souls with remorse / over mistakes and heartaches of old
Black shadows block the sun / we’re back to square one / blinded and reminded of our past
But we speak far too soon / revive doom and gloom / and we’re mangled and tangled in night
Then we’re ripped from our rest / as shadows tempt and test / blows smashing and crashing close by
Still the clouds, raging black / sweep in with fresh attack / and we’re crushed in the rush of despair
Yet the night falls again / to linger and pretend / it’s untangled, an angel of light
Far from done, demons lurk / and shatter all our work / while we huddle and struggle in vain
In the mind, battles rage / til we snap, turn the page /and the broken, unspoken words flow
Still we face one more fight / one more race with the night / and the thunder rolls under our feet
And it’s on us to choose / lose or make breakthroughs / pull the light upon us / in a few stolen moments
Pull a song from the beat / leave the stress on the street / keep the sunlight on us / in our stolen moments

No comments

Soaked in cleansing rain / dark no longer torments / cloaked in light, erasing stains / we're washed in stolen moments
Saved by the power / of each stolen hour / we wear rose-colored glasses / til the darkness passes
It’s our time to touch the light / dream the dreams, set fire to night
And for a moment, we bask in the quiet / soft sounds of hope and life, in stolen moments

No comments

Now the door to light opens, vision clears in stolen moments, breaking through the black night’s clamor, quiet beauty with each hammer
Take a breath / a stolen moment / slowing down / the hands of time / think of only / what still matters / stolen moments / find the light
Silent sounds of life / draw new hope upon us / beauty brought to light / the hush of stolen moments
Suddenly, sorrow leaves / on a sea blue breeze / quiet light upon us / in stolen moments
And we find a hideaway, a dream escape, a reason to take, stolen moments
Close our eyes / light we find / hurt is gone / left behind / peace of stolen moments / sweet, stolen moments
Wait for it, stolen moments/ don’t forget, time has told us

No comments

Waves of peace / life’s sweet rhythm / bring release / deep within us / stop the world / stolen moments / beautiful, stolen moments
Ev’ry beat, soothes our souls / ev’ry breath, pulls us close / stolen moments, clear the mind / stolen moments, beams of light
Softly come, stolen moments / glowing hope, quiet garments / timeless peace, ever promised / take us home, stolen moments
Then the mind runs away / to escape yesterday / and it’s lost, it’s a walk in the park
When restraint is removed / and battles rage of old / with words spoken we’re broken apart
When the clouds burst and cry / raining tears black and bold / and the thunder of plunder now starts
Though fortunes may be spent / in futile failed repent / we’re branded, remanded, and marked
And the air of the night / seems vacant, blue and cold /full of rebels and devils at large
Let the stains tell a tale / of sinister control / sound a hazy and crazy alarm
No matter how we fight / to walk into the light / death eludes us and truth must depart
We pretend fear is gone / but the show must go on / we’re uncertain the curtain will part
When time is no more and terror reigns so bold and we’ve traded our jaded black hearts
Speak the words that wash clean our evil hungry soul / delusion, confusion, we starve
And we watch and we wait for a chance to escape, as the fire burns higher skin chars
There’s a place demons flee to be washed and set free just by asking, unmasking the heart
When the beast that will come wakes us all one by one and we’re shaken and taken and marked
Soul in stress ridin’ clouds of doubt, I’m / lookin’ for new ways to tune out
I just want a little time machine to / fly back in familiar dreams, I’ll / find a space to make wrongs right and / steal a little thunder from the starlight
Why am I countin’ sheep to slumber / why is age more now than a number
Best move I ever made was stand still / stay in now, future, past, they’re not real
Endless nights I’m up til a.m. / nowhere in the dark can dreams live / tell me better days are out there / maybe I’ll believe and I’ll care
“Make my day”, the Devil still taunts me/ this is it, I won’t let him haunt me
Wake up, rerun the same old same old / I’ve just begun to hate this stronghold / do this, do that, do as I’m told / how do I breakthrough, break these molds
Fly like wind was the way outta heartache / Try again can’t outrun my mistakes
Young and full of dreams I remember / yesterdays would burn into embers
I need a minute off this planet to breathe / I can’t really afford just to leave / there’s too many people who still believe / to their happiness I hold the key
There have been days I’ve been paralyzed / afraid to move with my fear disguised / so if I’m taken by surprise / come find me with encouraging eyes
Where can I find what you need to show me / gotta keep hopin’ that hope will hold me
Some might say that I’m sinkin’ low now / losin’ all control of me somehow
So we'll leave love's cover, wrapped around each other
So I'll stay near you now, find my way here somehow
I’ll reach out with these arms, give you now my whole heart
So, from this time forward, I'll make sure my heart's heard
So, you'll hear my heart now, and my arms will reach out

No comments

And if tomorrow’s not there, will you wait for me somewhere
Treasure’s in these hours, and my heart is now yours

No comments

But, in my mind's a movie of time now I'm losing, (so)
So I’ll make a new vow, fill my hours with right now
And because of that time, I can promise this time
Memories I’m making, desperately not faking
So, together we’ll stay, I’ll make sure for always
Bittersweet time may be / but I’m free from wasting

No comments

Time for me’s not over / so I’ll be much bolder

No comments

So, I’ll change completely, rearrange these feelings
So I'll stay in the present, do things now that I haven't
So I’ll look at my life, make my moves with new eyes
So tomorrow’s new eyes won’t let time just slip by
So I’ll keep those memories and you’ll make new ones with me
So, I'll face my future, living dreams that endure

No comments

So I'll give you flowers while I have these hours
And with you I'll always find the hope, strength, and faith
So I'll make these minutes count til my life's finished
So I'll move on freely, tell you while I'm breathing
So I'll take thia treasure, give my love full measured
All my hopes aren't behind me / even unknown tomorrows, visions I'll never let go, dreams I imagine are mine
Let my fears fall behind me / let love cover tomorrow as far as the seas flow and surround me with peace all my days
Of the losses behind me / what I'd give if tomorrow could take me back there though, where I'd relive my yesterdays
To take a good look behind me / and remember tomorrow can change all that I know and turn my whole world upside down
I should throw fear behind me / or toss it onto tomorrow and just let my cares go ‘cause now is what matters in time
Of each breath left behind me / I can’t touch my tomorrows or see what they may hold, my future’s not written yet
Of love amazing inside me / I have more for tomorrow, I’ll make sure that you know how priceless and treasured you are
Life is far from behind me / but I can’t waste tomorrows on which way the wind blows, I’ll fight this battle with time
Living’s not all behind me / minutes making tomorrows are there to change sorrows and give me the chances I need
Of the treasure behind me / I can't wait til tomorrow 'cause now is all I know, it's time to use all of my time
Though most may be behind me / love has all my tomorrows as sure as the stars glow, it’s gonna keep burnin’ bright
Learn from lessons behind me / and tell all my tomorrows to make what’s left go slow so I might have that second chance
My life’s not behind me / I’ve still got some tomorrows, a chance that my heart knows will give loved ones more of my time
Of the lost years behind me / and the chance for tomorrows without all the sorrows, I’ll get it so right this time
I'm lovin' you always
My heart loves you always
Year's can't erase my love
The years won't dim my love
My emotion’s endless
My love never leaves you
Time's calendar keeps love
I'll love endless lifetimes
I need so much more time
I need more tomorrows
Time's calendar keeps love
Love owns all tomorrows
Love has our tomorrows
Love's timeless, won't move on

No comments

Love's endless, it goes on
There's no end to my love
'Cause love lasts a lifetime
Emotions will endure
Forevermore love lives
Time's taken for granted
These mem'ries won't vanish
Love's light burns forever
My ring of love’s endless
Love outshines this lifetime
Worth more than kings' ransoms ( revised with "more than", credit to Terry :)
It's worth a king's ransom
More time would be priceless
Wish we were immortal
Wish our time was endless
I'll stay til time's through here
I'll cling to tomorrows
No limits for my love
You're always my treasure
This love will last so long
I'll dream it's unending
We'll stay like this always
I'll feel this fire always
I'll want this for always
My love's everlasting
Eternity's endless
And I'll pull you closer than I ever have before
I'll put minutes on my priority list
I'll make sure I just choose to do things dearest
I'll treasure each minute while it still exists
I'll hold all the hours in my sweet caress

No comments

I’ll pay it all forward, won’t settle for less
I won’t leave cause I’ve seen too much as it is
I’ll stay through the tough times, I’m right there in it

No comments

I’ll rewrite the future, the past I’ll outwit
And let it be so clear they won’t have to guess
My family, my friends, too, you’re top of my list
I’ll weigh every minute and feel it’s fullness
And maybe I won’t lose more minutes like this
I'll pour my soul into remembering this
Each minute is precious, can’t wait about this

No comments

‘Cause people important to me, they need this
I'll give all the flowers my pockets will fit

No comments

I'll show my emotions, the feelings I hid
Put no one above you, my carin’ won’t quit
I'll make sure to hug you and really commit
I fell for the feelin’ / the young keep believin’ / the old me won’t get here for so many more years / and chances seemed endless somehow
I wish I had just known / seen visions of days gone / all the plans that I made / like a melody played / spin through my mind round and round
I can’t make the past change, my choices will remain / if I wish on a star and get there where you are, will I be happy somehow
If I could just go back, stay on the right track / maybe I’d find a way to use lost yesterday’s, more of those moments would count
The way we were, kids without a plan / tearin' through the yesterdays, like they were endless sand
What can I say or do in the now / makin' the most of days I still have / why am I waitin' to knock on that door / anticipatin' what might be in store / ' cause life is short
Sittin’ on the sidelines, turnin’ a blind eye / I’ve been guilty of that
Can’t say I didn’t hear it comin’, my mind’s a major traffic jam / the sound of passin’ years is sure somethin’, I’m stuck there wonderin’ who I am
How do we get lost in what we lose / beggin’ to rewind the things we choose
Don’t wanna live this way, full of regret / for things of yesterday, I’ve not done yet / turns out it’s the memo I didn’t get / life is short
The younger me would not know this / the now’s not what I’d really miss / it’s the people who have passed through heaven’s door / it’s the time, it’s the years I had before / life is short
Six o’clock sunrise, slippin’ into my eyes / one more day to dance
I've still got tomorrows I take for granted / won't know the sorrow of seeds that I planted
A little livin's all it takes / to look at life with new eyes
Some have those who live and breathe / some have only memories
Part of me, part of you / the heart that beats without a clue
The time we’ll never have / it’s gonna hurt the most
All around this globe / common situations / in this boat / all of mankind / our hearts know / we should work it out this time / but I'm never gonna change your mind
So, when I’ve said it all / runnin’ close to empty / walls will fall / hope won’t flatline / love will call / your heart will move you to my side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I see our future now / locked in love forever / free somehow / two of a kind / I’ll back down / let you simmer where you shine / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I won’t let it go / I’m too close to winnin’ / heart and soul / partners in crime / love you so / but losin’s where I draw the line / and I’m never gonna change your mind
So, here’s my strategy / you’ll think it’s your idea / one small seed / planted design / light you see / spread there with my love will shine / and it’s maybe gonna change your mind
So, I could make you choose / my way or the highway / we’d both lose / blind lead the blind / here’s good news / my heart just may accept your side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, have I said enough / do I keep on hopin' / signs show up / breakthrough takes time / real results / I'll look for later down the line / but I'm never gonna change your mind
If I could dream that dream / put you on my page now / be one team / cross t’s and dot i’s / no pulled seams / just our little perfect lines / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could rock this boat / make all the waves I want to / sit and gloat / if you see my side / I told you so’s / well, they would have an endless life / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I’ll keep eyes on you / look for alteration / watch for clues / listen and smile / take breakthroughs / run with them a thousand miles / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I sense some hope / I'll maybe hold my breath now / wait and cope / send up smoke signs / on tiptoe / stand there in the patience line / but I'm never gonna change your mind
Well, the time has come / I'll take a new direction / the night's still young / and tomorrow sun shines / I'd hold my tongue / but it would never toe the line / and I'm never gonna change your mind
Like an avatar / symbol of your sign / you can’t shake this part
Keys to who you are / unlock every light / settin' free as stars / the notion.....
Keys to who you are / unlock ev'ry light / settin' free as stars are
Little doors ajar /start to open wide /lettin' in a part
I can sense a start / jostle so, so slight /motion from afar
There's a gear in park / waitin' on the light / spinnin' wheels would start /
hesitation part / kinda sees the light / maybe it can start /
Lives a piece of art / wrapped up really tight / painting of a part /

Flyin’ off the charts /much to my delight / lives a little part (credit to Greg Litt for “off the charts”)
So, I’ll blow my top / as often as I need to / that won’t stop / I’m drawin’ the line / your mental block / well, I gotta say it’s one of a kind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I'll take this chance / to tell you I'm not angry / and like romance / I can't design / a perfect dance / but maybe if I'm not unkind / someday I can change your mind
Well, I'm not sure how/ we ever got this started/ just know now/ its gonna be fine/ we'll take a vow/ never let our souls divide/ but I'm never gonna change your mind/ yet I'll try, try, try
Blind and deaf / a lethal combination / no soul’s left / I can’t be unwise / you, yourself / have to see you fell for lies / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I’ll hold on still / cling to my convictions / how I feel / deep down inside / strong and real / enough to bring you back from blind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So give me room / to regroup and recover / I’ll resume / my same worn out lines / hopin’ soon / you’ll listen with no axe to grind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I’ll step this up / a couple notches higher / push my luck / spend my last dime / fill your cup / with all the facts you failed to find / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, before you think / oh, another accusation / here’s a link / you’ll wanna find / I’m on the brink / of provin’ you’re so out of line / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, if I lose my cool / I’ll take a long vacation / like a fool / I still won’t unwind / it’s my rule / never leave the fight behind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I’ll say you need / major alteration / yes, indeed / it’s time to revise / when you see / determination in my eyes / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could stop and give up / say you’re more than hopeless / wish you luck / leave you behind / I’m just stuck / lovin’ you for all this time / but I’m never gonna change your mind (resubmitted from a previous round)
I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( alternative lines 1 and 2 BNC) “you think you’re so sure now / but maybe you’re mistaken” ( resubmitted from a previous round)
Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( credit to Keith Curtis for “try to be kind”) ( resubmitted from a previous round)
Well, I could make a deal / compromise and settle / keep it real / let it all slide / break your will / or learn to let your heart decide / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( resubmitted from a previous round)
Well, I’m almost out / patience nearly empty / my card of clout / it’s been declined / there’s no doubt / you’re runnin’ back to bein’ blind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
(Verse 4 line 3) But when the real deal shines clear
Well in reality / what you hear is useless / if you can’t be / open to right / you must see / lookin’ out of brand new eyes / if I’m ever gonna change your mind
I’m not through / I will keep on pushin’ /thanks to you / I’m here for the climb /it’s past due / facts I’ll make you get behind / but I’m never gonna change your mind

(V4 line 3) But then reality shines clear Line 4 would need to begin with “and” instead of “then”
Life is kind of strange these days

Will I ever walk away / realize the madness never ends / there's no question I will stay / no givin' up, I'm gonna try again
Well, until we're wearing someone's shoes / we'll never feel the stones they're walkin' on / and whatever hard roads they choose / we're gonna have to let them run alone
We’re totally in diff’rent worlds / It’s universal, common to mankind / And everywhere a truth is hurled / It bounces off the stubborn and the blind
We’re walkin’ in a world unknown / never seein’ clearly other views / when the seeds of fear are sown / we’re afraid to even watch the news

I'm feelin' like a fool who's failed / at gettin' just a simple thing across / but I won't be the one who bails / I'm gonna keep on fightin' like a boss
If I have somehow made you see / errors in a twisted point of view / you’d probably still not concede / and I’ll be even more upset with you
Well, I swear I'm makin' progress here / in spite of all the bridges we have burned /and someday on this great blue sphere/ persuasion's gonna be the art I learn
Well, my sanity I'm sure I've lost / always knew there'd be a price to pay / I never thought to count the cost / I'm still not gonna give you any breaks
For all I know I’m on the brink / something in the air says I have won / but then again I stop and think / the game I’m playin’s only just begun
For the record, I’ll not hold back / everything I say I really mean / proof’s in every punch I pack / I’m givin’ you a side you’ve never seen
If only you could realize / livin' in a battle takes it's toll / when your mind is tellin' lies / you gotta get the answer from your soul
Well, I guess I'm chasin' dreams again / runnin' after those that won't come true / just remember I'm a friend / I'm hopin' that I mean as much to you
Well, it seems like this is just a dream / and in the daylight gonna disappear / differences that come between / are gone now and no longer welcome here
Well, I'm never ready for defeat / I'll keep on hopin' I'll get through to you / and maybe when our two hearts meet / the love they have will show us what to do
If we ever put an end to this / there’ll be flyin’ pigs and freezin’ hell / what I’m gonna mostly miss / the fussin’ and the fightin’ we do well
When everything is said and done / and battles are in yesterday's news / nothing's different, nobody won / the love is what we're never gonna lose
I’m wonderin’ if you’re just like me / wishin’ we could stay the way we were / and if we do or don’t agree / all we really want is to be heard
I'm hopin' that I've let you see / sides you never knew were there before / whatever you may think of me / I'm just gonna love you more and more
Well, I could set you straight / write out all my reasons / sit and wait / chill and unwind / you’d erase / everything I underlined / and I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could stop and give up / say you’re more than hopeless / wish you luck / leave you behind / I’m just stuck / lovin’ you for all this time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could use big words / or try to keep it simple / it’s occurred / you don’t need lines / if you’ve heard / what I’ve said a thousand times / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could spend my days / caught up in this quarrel / it’s that maze / built while you’re blind / I could raise / that elusive bar in time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could make a deal / compromise and settle / keep it real / let it all slide / break your will / or learn to let your heart decide / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind (Credit to keithcurtis for “try to be kind”)
Well, you are so strong-willed / it’s too hard to reach you / your heart is sealed / it’s one of a kind /like a shield / I can’t ever get behind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could wring my hands / like I’m goin’ crazy / which you can’t stand / you’ll run and hide / and there’s a chance / your heart ends up on my side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could play my role / Use the love unspoken / Win your soul / Give it some time / Break that mold / The one that made your heart’s design / But I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could give you proof / there’s somethin’ to my thinkin’ / it’s plain truth / I’m not gonna lie / your excuse / is sayin’ “I’m always right” / and I’m never gonna change your mind
If I could reach that place / Would it make a difference / I can’t wait / For what I might find / It’s not too late / A heart’s got plenty of time / But I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could climb that tower / like “Sleepless in Seattle” / we’d stay hours / like Hanks and Meg Ryan / give me the power / I’ll make you my Valentine / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I know you’re not me / we’re like oil and water / can’t agree / and that would be fine / if you’d see / we’re still on the same side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
When you hear me out / ‘n have a light bulb moment / then that doubt / erases my try / my hope’s drowned / your heart is what I can’t find / and I’m never gonna change your mind
I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could talk all day / hopin’ it will sink in / find a way / make you see why / you’d still say / I’m just wasting your time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I’m never gonna change your mind / Life’s not givin’ us the room for one more chance
I’m never gonna change your mind / ‘cause it overrules your heart and hides your soul
I’m never gonna change your mind / If your heart is set on stayin’ just the same
I’m never gonnna change your mind / in a perfect world my side would be so clear
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s as difficult as wakin’ up a dream
I’m never gonna change your mind / might as well be turnin’ sunlight into gold
Well, you’re never gonna change my mind / if you keep on spinnin’ all your bad as good
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / you don’t listen to what my heart has to say
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s beautiful, it’s strange, it’s kind
I’m never gonna change your mind / guess you lost it when you left me last time
I’m never gonna change your mind / I’ve learned to leave it up to life
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / goes back to when we both were nine
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s like tryin’ to tame the tide
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s set on sayin’ that same goodbye
I’m never gonna change your mind / I’m dreamin’ on borrowed time
You’re never gonna change my mind / this love I got ain’t goin’ outta style
I’m never gonna change your mind / I might as well rearrange the sky
I’m never gonna change your mind / like mountains too high for the climb
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s so outta sync with your heart / one is whisperin’ “Stay this time” / one is shoutin’ that we’re better apart
But don’t apologize / we really tried
I’m over you, I’m strong / but don’t get me wrong
Tomorrow I’ll be fine / at least I’ll try
Moved from an also ran / a much wiser man
Regret ain’t called my name / I’m stronger an’ I’m sane
A match is handy sometimes / read between the lines
I’m still in love with you / so much stronger too
Still in a little love / wasn’t quite enough

I’m more than I was then / a better man times ten
Because we had this dance / I’m a better man
Wish you’da wanted us / and never caught that bus
If you ever change your mind / I ain’t hard to find
I’m takin’ chances now / you showed me how
I thought we had it all / hearts made the fall
Wish stayin’d made you see / what we could be
Been travelin’ back in time / losin’ my mind
I’m takin’ one last risk / to tell you this
So hard to let you go / but still I know
For a moment, I was back there / caught between my heart and mind
Set the bottle by the bedside / and laid that photo by the phone
Never told you, never meant to / I never thought to thank you then
Can’t be sorry, not one second / for turnin’ up that Texas town
So much better, life is good now / the man I am I owe to you
You’re the one I’ll atill remember / that time ain’t gonna fade away
Every misstep moved me closer / to the man I’m meant to be
I’m still starin’ at those blue eyes / wishin’ they could see me now
Lessons learned through all those young years / that better man they talk about
Or close the door on what we’ve been

Couldn’t make it past the dreamin’
(But) I can’t shake the way that we end
It’s like jumpin’ off the deep end
Or a future place where we win
We tried so hard to believe it
You can’t stop love when it’s leavin’
And we both knew what we needed
You were gone by the first of September / All I got are the flames to remember / And baby, that ain’t bad
There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl /not one in all of this whole world /but we knew we weren’t a perfect match/ and tho you shaped my heart, it wasn’t in the cards/ but there ain’t one kiss, no not one kiss, there never was a kiss I’d wanna take back

There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl / not in all of Texas, not in all of this world

And I wouldn’t miss our last act, girl
Blue eyes askin’ where this thing will go / mine were sayin’ not so fast
‘Bout to hold me while we danced slow / on the banks of the Rio Grande
How can just one simple photo / bring the memories flowin’ fast
