Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hahahaha Kevin! I gotta say that's a great rhyme! But "brain fart" might create too much slap happy into the mix...though it's truly what can happen!"

Lyric by kosborne321:

"I have big brain farts/when we have these fights/please give me a fresh start"

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hey Kevin! Maybe you can focus on the "feeling" of the DMZ, and not have any detail that actually says it. Like if the two sides are so opposed to each other like in a war, the DMZ is neither side, no military forces, right? Maybe the charcters in this song need to find that middle ground... and in fact all the opposing sides in the world right now could use that as this song isn't just about this particula couple (verses 3 and 4). Not sure how you would word it. Good luck! And I hope you're feeling better!"

Lyric by kosborne321:

"In one of my submissions I'm trying to get across the concept of the argument being stuck like they're in the DMZ, but I'm stuck on how to get this to fit into the melody. Open to having a co-writer on this one. I need help with the direction to go on this. I think it could be meaningful if I put it the right way. It's a reflection upon my time as a missionary in South Korea with the DMZ, the demilitarized zone. A humorous note: In 1995 tensions were increasing between North Korea and South Korea. I was the ony one with a shortwave radio. This was the announcement from the BBC. "Tensions increase between North and South Korea. Now to the cricket scores.""

Clay Mills commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"good thought kevin. Since we use the word love in every chorus, I'd stay away from it here.

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hey Kevin, I read your message about the challenge of matching syllables to melody. If you want to match this submission better, it would be something like: (numbers of syllables)
(6) I could shoot all my truths / (6) Try to get you to know / (3) where you're wrong / (4) How would I grow (but instead of an O rhyme here, Beth wants a long I rhyme or "ind" rhyme...... like (4) I wouldn't shine /
Then from here, there is another (3) line, and a longer line following that is a (6) that ends in a long I, then the last line "but I'm never gonna change your mind". Hope this helps. You can use it as a guide. The lryic I suggested was just random. No credit to me please.

"I could shoot a quiver of truth/ from my bow Get you to know/the wrong of your insight/ How would I grow/insisting on what’s right?/But I’m never gonna change your mind"

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"that line could be "and where I'm right" instead of "I wouldn't shine"... something that makes a bit more sense. Again, just random thoughts here... just showing ideas regarding lyrics/syllable count "

"just grabbing this one line here Kevin...
"Seeing through a different sight"

Try:
You see me through a different light
But I'm never gonna change your mind

and borrowing from Gailla for the front part:

I'm jumping up and down
Banging on the tables
Shout real loud
And maybe you'll find
Somehow you can
see me in a different light
But I’m never gonna change your mind.

"fits that melody really good!"

Lyric by kosborne321:

"Well, I'm never gonna change your mind/you need to have it all your way"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hi Kevin! Thanks for going with that crazy leap of faith kind of line...it may not be the final one but some amazing creative stuff flies through when we're willing to open up to that flow.

This beginning part of the song for me is always "squishy" and yes when it's finished it needs to be clear. But it can be clear and whacky and we can do things in writing that step outside "real life" as long as it's conversational and communicates clearly. You can have a chimp drive you to the movies as long as we understand what's being communicated.

:) "

Lyric by kosborne321:

"Well, I'm never gonna change your mind/be like tellin' a chimp it will like shrimp"

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hey Frank, I can understand your confusion. But don't confine yourself to the dictionary's definition of a couplet. In songs, it is just a grouping of two lines and the rhyming isn't a set thing. For those of us who are choosing AB, if one of those line is chosen, the next couplet would probably be AB as well... so the entire 4 lines would be ABAB. For those of you choosing AA, then the next two lines could be AA or even CA (AAAA or AACA) etc. It all depends on the sounds you're going for. I like to use a lot of internal rhymes in my writing without concern sometimes for how the end of the line is. The important thing as I see it is to create the rhyme scheme that flows with the melody in the first verse, and then follow that rhyme scheme in verse 2. Anything goes at the beginning of a song while you're just settling in on structure. Don't be discouraged. All she's asking for is a second line. Those who wrote entire verses etc.. are going against what she asked.

"Well, I'm never gonna change your mind/be like tellin' the wind it will never blow again"

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"I agree with Keith. I think trying to be clever can work against you. You'll hear publishers say a lot, that feels "too written" or like it's trying to be "too clever". Kind of like a person trying too hard to be funny versus something that just naturally IS.

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hey Meredith, everything you said makes perfect sense! Thanks for taking the time to write. The only reason I am on this thread is Kevin asked for my feedback on his edit. I usually don't offer feedback, because writing is such a personal, subjective thing. And you're so right... just like Beth mentioned how verse 2 emerged for KISS from a line she blurted out in the room, is a good reminder that an out of the box thought can lead to something great. I see so many lines on here that I can hear being batted around in a room between writers as it spins into something special. I love that and this."

Clay Mills commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Good line but we've already used fire and summer in the line before, so we should introduce new images here."

Lyric by kosborne321:

"That fiery summer so full of spark and desire will live in my memory."

Clay Mills commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"Hey Kevin, I like the concept. But I try to avoid words or similar words that we've have already mentioned. The line before was about setting the summer on fire. So let's move on to new territory and away from firefly, etc. :)"

Lyric by kosborne321:

Clay Mills commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"the word rewind is a good word for this song. "

Lyric by kosborne321:

"We can't relive the past by puttin' it on rewind"

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"I like the "cuz of you I am what I am girl". If you remember what Clay said in his video, he feels that the second line of the chorus should have two rhymes with the first line. The two being "back" and "girl". In your new line, the "am" is a soft rhyme with "back" and of course girl and girl match. Also, in general any chorus for the country genre is a general big idea. The verses have the details and the chorus just is the emotional umbrella that you can hold over every verse. Each verse should lead the listener to the general emotion/big idea in the chorus. So, for instance in your one idea you put something about a shack in there. That would be a detail for a verse. And in general, I agree with the above comments about keeping all language conversational. For the country market, we are shooting for what a guy in his 20's or 30's would say. Even though you say these beautiful phrases to your wife (which is so wonderful), we are trying to write in a way that the average artist who might want to record our song, speaks... and also how the average listener speaks. Country commercial writing is writing for the masses. Save your beautiful language for songs that you might want to do or an artist who you know absolutely speaks that way, perhaps in a different genre. Wew are writing a country song with Clay as that is his market. Hope this helps!

"Remember that song I wrote for you, girl /Sang about how you got my heart in a whirl/I wouldn't have become the person I am 'cause you gave me what I lack."

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"You"re sweet but no need for that. The ONLY thing I would do was either out complete in the past tense or say something like "I thought you"d complete me.." because he is no longer in this relationship. 😊😊

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"I like the second half of this Kevin! If you could think of a more positive spin for first half, I think it could be a strong lyric! The "wounded" thought coming right after the positive first verse has a disconnect. This character just had a positive memory... so what would he actually say immediately after that?"

(more)
Lyric by kosborne321:

"You wounded me/mem'ries of your love are healin' me."

jaynesachs commented on kosborne321's lyric:

"I think in this scenario... the character is reflecting on a relationship that didn"t last BUT he is grateful for it because it has helped him become a better person. That is why there ain"t "one kiss I"d give back" is the title... SO, if you think in those terms, coming from his memory of that scene, what would someone say next? " I thought you completed me... but instead you helped make me better" might be the content you"re looking for.. but the challenge is how to sday it. If you want to end with "memories of your love are healing me", you could day something like: "thought you"d be the one to complete me, but now the memories are healing me". That line says that he thought she was the one, but they didn"t stay together or are not together... but he is better now.

There's this little part/ready to ignite/Love lives in one spark
Maybe we can start/Mending hurt inside/I can see a spark/The notion…
There's this tiny part/where hope lives inside/Love lit by one spark/The notion...
There’s this little spark/filled with hope and light/that can be discharged/The notion...
There's this little spark/filled with hope and light/waiting to be discharged/The notion...
Here you can press restart/Get love to ignite/Hope lives in one spark/The notion...
Maybe we can start/to mend the hurt inside/I can see a spark/The notion...
There's this little part/that lives deep inside/Hope to heal the scars/The notion...
Could we press restart/Mend the hurt inside/Turn over the dark (Credit to Rebecca7387 for Turn over the dark)
It’s where healing starts/The soft part inside/Hope that we won’t part/The notion...
Can lose who we are/Fail to see the light/Be lost, off the mark/The notion...
You are classy, sharp/brave, true, fair and wise/kind, soft and not hard/The notion...
These inside parts are/ soft, hard, unyielding/blunt, rough, smooth and smart/The notion...
This is who you are: soft, hard, unyielding/ blunt, rough, smooth, and smart/The notion...
You shine little sparks/that are true, fair, wise/ kind, rich, soft and smart/The notion...
You have a bright star/that is brave, real, wise/fair, kind, cheerful, smart/The notion...
There are tiny sparks/that are brave, fair, wise/honest, gentle, smart/The notion...
You’re a work of art/Shine these tiny lights: kind, fair, brave, not dark/The notion...
You’re a work of art/Tiny bits that are/kind, fair, real, not dark/The notion...
You're a work of art/Little rays you shine/Kind, fair, real, not dark
Here you are not hard/Soft, bright, full of light/You're not a discard/The notion...
Could we press restart/ mend the hurt inside/Turn on light leave the dark/The notion...
You’re not a diehard/gentle, soft, contrite/You're not a discard/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
Could we press restart/ Mend the hurt inside/Ignite and then start/The notion...
Could we press restart/ Mend the hurt inside/Turn from light to dark/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
Could we press restart/ Mend the hurt inside/Turn over dark to light/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
Could we press restart/ Mend the hurt inside/Turn on the switch, ignite/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
You’re not a diehard/gentle, soft, contrite/full of hope and light/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
Could we press restart/ mend the hurt inside/work to see the light/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
Here you are not hard/Soft, bright, full of light/I hope you hear this/The notion that I might/ Might just/Might be right
Inside you like art/there is dark and light/So please think about this/the notion that I might/ might just / might be right
In much works of art/there is dark and light/They have fresh insights
Seeing far apart/Never eye-to-eye/Love can still be kind
Seeing far apart/Never eye-to-eye/Love can still be kind
Seeing far apart/Never eye-to-eye/Love can spark a fire (Co-write with Rebecca 7387)
On pie a la carte/I’m dropping by/note on bag says why
When we’re apart/Fail seeing eye-to-eye/Love shows the reason why
Too many people apart/Divided insight/Not seeing the light
Show with an eye-chart/read it line by line/where you are not right
At the mini-mart/meet you eye-to-eye/my points all define
I have big brain farts/when we have these fights/please give me a fresh start
We talk all about/the world and its problems/I'm filled with doubt/hurt by our fight/Maybe we/can work on our insights/But I'm never gonna change your mind(BNC)

Open to having a co-writer on this one. I need help with the direction to go on this. I think it could be meaningful if I put it the right way.

You always see night/I want to see the day/I see forward/You see behind/Keep a smile/Come see things more like me/But I'm never gonna change your mind
Don’t get your point/Like I’m lost in a sea/The words you speak/tearing at me/How I pray/Maybe you’ll see the light/But I'm never gonna change your mind
Don't get your point/You’re stuck in the DMZ/The words you speak/keep you from me/You don't see/You're frowning; I'm smiling/ I'm never gonna change your mind
You’ve got no plan/You’re stuck in the DMZ/The words you speak/keep you away from me/You’re frowning and I’m smiling/But I’m never gonna change your mind
I could give you moonbeams/ Let their glow light you up/ I keep hope/alive you'll see/the whole truth/'bout our world. I still care/but I’m never gonna change your mind.
Cats don’t have drawn out fights/Hiss at one another/ They lay down/No wrong or right/They still care/Play of the healing kind/But I’m never gonna change your mind

Ihere's too many poor people/a lot of suffering/We can’t fix everything/ You and I should stay friends/caring for one another/But I’m never gonna change your mind

Birds sing their morning songs/Mountains talk to the sky/Peace like them//Maybe we’d find/Hope in them/Sight of the healing kind/But I’m never gonna change your mind

More a man 'cause of you/nothin' I'd redo
In your mind hope you know/still love you so...
Your love made me a man/can love again
The man I wanted to be/you made of me
Hun, your love completed me/made a man of me
You taught me what true love is/and to forgive
I've learned what true love is/it's more than bliss
Now I'm a better me/my spirit's set free
Love is carin' sharin'/it's forgivin'
Love is givin'/it's forgivin'
Love is carin', givin'/it's forgivin'
I shouldn't have let you go/losin' helped me grow
Helped shape the man I would be/Healin' mem'ries
I didn't treat you right then/ helped me love again
I've loved, learned, man I see/ growin' to be
Man I was meant to be/lives on in me
There's healing in the pain/tears fall like rain
In the gray there is blue/joy that we knew
Though our love faded away/I just wanna say
In our love, we did grow/want you to know
I'd be a more caring man/be your best fan
When all's said and done/lovin' you was fun!
Love is like diamonds/shines more with time
I learned that in the end/you're my best friend
I learned in the end/you're my best friend
Loke is like diamonds/shines more with time

You're my reason for livin'/'cause you're so givin'
I'd speak truth not lies/wouldn't say goodbye
I'd be a more caring guy/wouldn't say goodbye
One thing I'd change is me/better man you'd see
I would play a new song/wouldn't treat you wrong
Could say who's to blame/won't play that game
Love isn't about just takin'/it's about givin'
'cause of you I'm freer/see life clearer
Learned love is list'nin'/not just lustin'
I wouldn't change a thing/you are my everything
Now I'm a better me/my spirit feels free
Love didn't stand the test/didn't have any zest
If I did it again/I'd remember when...

I'm workin' as a singer for the Peace Corps 'cause you inspired me to help others
Heard you've fallen for another man/hope he treats you well or he'll answer to me
Heard you're a singer too/Best of you shines like diamonds from the best of me
Heard you’re a singer too/Best of me shines like diamonds from the best of you
I was so lost/ didn't know who I was/'til you came into my life
That guitar you stored in my closet/still plays a sweet melody
The guitar you stored in my closet/still plays a sweet melody
You brought out the best in me/by shinin' the best that's inside you
You brought out the best me/by bringing out the best that shone from you
There's always sunshine after the rain/learnin' lessons in all the' pain
The tequila and chicken wings sure were fine/kinda repeated on me like this line
You rocked my world/turned it upside down/changed me into a better man
What my young eyes couldn't see I see now 'cause of you bein' in my life
What my young eyes couldn't see, I see now 'cause of you bein' in my life
When darkness/ like a gray could hung over me/ you helped me see the light
When darkness/ like a gray cloud hung over me/you helped me the light to see
Gave me wings to fly so high/to live my dream/help others reach theirs too
You rocked my world/turned it right upside down/changed me into a better man
I'm the man/ I am today/ 'cause I listened to/ hard things you'd say
Now I'm tryin'/ real hard to be/ the man you wanted me to be
Mem'ries rewind teaching me it's a strong man who is gentle and kind
Mem'ries rewind teaching me it's a strong man who is gentle and kind
The man you were makin' of me sayin' hard things I needed to hear
I'm singin' in Nashville Tennessee 'cause the man that you made of me
The songs I sing /inside of me /are 'cause you believed in who I could be
Still young in spirit 'cause of you after all these years
I'm singin' in Nashville today/ 'cause how you/ never gave up on me
You helped bring out/ the songs that were always/inside of me to sing
You showed me how my challenges helped make me into a better man
I was lost/didn't know who I fully was/'til you came into my life
'cause you were in my life/ I have changed/ into this kinder man you see
You rocked my world/turned it upside down/changed me into a better man
Memories rewind/ how you taught me/ that a gentle man can be strong
Hope lives inside of me 'cause of sweet memories of you
Helped me soar to my destiny 'cause you never stopped believin' in me.
I'm the singer I am today/'cauee you believed so much in me
That breaks a heart but keeps it beating (Co-writer credit to Marlasaritkd)
Those carefree times I'll never forget
Two hearts touching one another
or the hurt that it's going
On the other side of hurting there can be healing.
Tears are an open window that lets the healing begin
You want its joy to go on forever
You want it to last forever
It gives joy to the living
It gives life its meaning
It's real/ something precious to hold on to
Memories that keep a heart beating
Special times live on in my memory
Tou were the healing air I was breathing
Passion can still live on in a memory
Need to open a window to let fresh air in
Mem'ries are like a flower more beautiful as time goes on
That wound a heart and keep it healing
Mem'ries are beautiful if you give them room to breathe
When tears start falling that's when the healing begins
Healing mem'ries that keep a heart beating
That hurts a heart and keeps it beating
Young, carefree, full of life
Young, so fresh, wild, carefree
Memories rewind when were so right for one another
Memories rewinding when we were so wild
Time when we were so wild and carefree
Young love so fresh, alive, like a heart beating quickly
That breaks a heart and keeps it going (Co-writer credit to Marlasaritkd for "breaks a heart")
That breaks a heart and keeps it pumping (Co-writer credit to Marlasaritkd for "breaks a heart")
Each other's breath stealing
Wish we would have given romance a second chance
Mem'ries rewindin' a touch, caress, having a heap of fun
Your touch, tender caresses, blowin' in my ear
You were 18, I was 21/we had so much fun!
Mem'ries of my heart broken, bruised, still beatin'
Mem'ries rewindin' bein' wild, carefree
Mem'ries rewindin' of bein' wild and carefree
Mem'ries of mountains, caresses giving our love meaning.
Ssnsin' my heart poundin' thinkin' 'of you
That my heart stops and starts broken and mending rememb'ring you.
My heart stops and starts broken and mendin' rememberin' you
Such a special time , a mem'ry helping this heart healing
Your hair all a mess, windows fogging.
Mem'ries of seeing mountains, sweet caresses, that gave our love its meaning.
Memories that warm me inside, give love its meaning
Flashbacks bein' with you help this hurtin' heart healin'
Did you hear the one about two songwriters who walk into a bar? (play on bar of music). They left on a sour note.
You can't stop two trains collidin' (Co-writer credit to Kayly for not stopping concept)
Time can be a healin' remedy to a memory.
Mem'ries on rewind that hurt but also help in the healin'
Memories that keep my heart beatin' (Credit to Marlasaritkd for leaving out the word lovin' from my previous lyric) Thanks a lot, Marla!
How do I move on from a memory?
If only the times that are gone we could have once again.
Time brings healin' to a broken heart in the leavin'
Keepin' this fractured heart beatin' and healin'(Credit to Marlasaritkd for the heart beating concept)
From not knowin' how to love to you smilin'
Young, hopeful, believin', mem'ries helpin' in the healin'
What you did with whip cream helps in the healin'
Young lovers, broken hearts, healin' mem'ries
In mem'ries rewindin' peace I'm findin'
Why did we pretend thinkin' our love would never end?
In mem'ries rewindin' healin' I'm findin'
Love remembered that helps me go on, helps in the healin'
From heartache losin' you to lovin' mem'ries that are healin'
Lovin' mem'ries that kept my heart beatin'
Lovin' mem'ries that make me smile.
Hearin' in my heart lovin' mem'ries that are healin'
Sweet cherry lips, whipped cream thought's helpin' in the healin'
Precious love mem'ries that help in the healin'
Thoughts of bananas, whipped cream, lovin' healin'
Time brings healin' to the leavin'
Only time will bring healin' in the leavin'
Those lovin' times will live in my mind.
You can't rewind the past.
Ain't one moment I regret/Those times of being wild and carefree I'll never forget
There's not a day I would rewind/Your love made me a better man/Our love didn't endure but ain't one kiss I'd take back (Credit to jaynesachs for the rewinding concept)
That fiery summer so full of spark and desire will live in my memory.
That fiery summer so full of love and desire will love in my memory/I'm a better man for having known you
Got the note you left at the motel that read: "The sizzle has fizzled out. We'll always have El Paso. Goodbye."
I'll never forget the note you left for me at the motel. "The sizzle has fizzled out. We'll always have El Paso. Goodbye."
I got your note that said, "Goodbye. The sizzle has fizzled out."
The sparks didn't continue/By Fall our love fizzled out
Our love cooled by Fall/The sizzle fizzled out
By Fall those fiery flames fizzled out
That summer sizzled but my the Fall our love had fizzled out
By Fall our love had crashed and burned/Guess we couldn't keep up the heat
The spark fizzled out/ a smile remains thinkin' how much you loved me
Thought our love would endure/it burnt out, but it leaves me smilin' inside your love changed me into a better man
That sizzlin' summer will live in my memory.
By Fall our love fizzled out/higher and higher the flames went until they burnt out
Hun. that final summer you showed me what true love means/We'll always have those smokin' lovin' mem'ries of El Paso
Showed me mountains/made me feel powerful emotions never knew were there. Always will have our fiery summer
Hun, our love was special, soul-givin/'Tears me up inside sayin' goodbye 'cause you're holdin' on too tight
When you look in the mirror don't know who you are/when you can't fix what's wrong time to move on
Our love that summer was pure, beautiful/fall came and somehow our love had gone, flown away, left in El Paso
Desired love wild as a Texas thunderstorm/Couldn't endure this suffocatin' of my soul
How can I endure? How can I move on from this soul-stealin' life unless I leave and find who I am.
Shared my dream being a songwriter/ Have to leave and live my dream or I'll lose what defines me
Don't want to say who was right or wrong/hun, we just grew apart
The more I gave the less there was of me/Had to leave much sooner /Had to find me again (Credit to Karly for the less of me and finding concepts)
Secret part of my heart I'll always keep for you/Gave 'til fire of love in me was consumed.
We were young lovers like stallions full of fiery fury, didn't last/loved way too wild and fast
Young lovers like us didn't last so full of fiery fury/lovin' way too wild and fast
Our love is like lightning/it appeared for an instant and then it was gone (Credit to Rebecca7387 for lightning gone in an instant concept) Write on, Rebecca!
Like lightnin' strikes, there were flashes of our thunderin' love growin' distant, didn't last
Our love was like those towerin' Texas thunderstorms/a nuclear blast that didn't last
I'm ragin' like a wildfire burnin' inside you had to go/but lovin' you was a gift that in my mem'ry will always endure
My heart's churnin' and burnin' inside like a ragin' wildfire you left me/guess our love wasn't meant to be
My heart's churnin' like a raging wildfire you left me/guess our love wasn't meant to be
My heart is churnin' inside like a raging wildfire that you left me/guess our love wasn't meant to be (Credit to Karly for the widfire concept)
Sorry our love didn't last/lovin' you was a blast
Our love didn't stand the test/Lovin' you made me the best
Could say who's to blame/Choose believin' 'cause of your love I'm a better man/never will be the same
Our love was like flashes of thunder/ here then only heard at a distance
Love is like a sheet of music/some notes slow/others the beat too fast/ our notes weren’t whole, so they didn’t last
Some songs are short and others long/our short love song was beautiful
Our love didn't endure/that's for sure, yeah
Our love like a firefly shone brightly and quickly burnt out
Our love was like a firefly lasting two months and then it died
We can't relive the past by puttin' it on rewind
Like stars lighting up the sky/love burning brightly that quickly burnt out(Credit to Paul Goerke for the lighting up the sky concept)
Not one day of our love I regret/Not one caress I forget/lovin’ you made me the man you wanted to see/sorry to see you go but I want you to know there ain’t one kiss I’d wannna take back
Not one day of our love I regret/Not one caress I forget/lovin' you made me the man you wanted to see/sorry to see you go but I want you to know there ain't one kiss I'd wannna tacke back
Our love went in and out like the tide/risin' and comin' back again/gone out to sea far too soon
Not one mem'ry/not one moment would I redo/'cause lovin' you made me more of the man I am/no there ain't one kiss I'd wanna take back (Credit to Jaynesachs for redoing concept)
Our love rose and came down quickly like the settin' sun
But the wood on the fire fizzled out
Not a day I'd rewind/found myself when I found you/forever I'll always see you're love brought out the best in me/ sorry to see you gone/time for movin' on but there ain't one kiss I'd wanna take back (Credit to Jaynssachs for the finding and losing concept)
Ain't one thing I regret/Ain't one mem'ry I'll forget/Ain't one kiss I''d take back (Credit to Colleen for the regret concept)
Enjoyed the hayride/hand me 'nother beer
Desire smouldered a while then burnt out like a fadin' mem'ry
Our love ran out of gas before I could get a fill-up 'gain
Scorchin' blaze like our love ignited and burnt out just as it was beginnin'
Desire smouldered and then burnt out
Higher and higher our love flew/ came crashin' down too soon
Sun rises sun sets like our love sun goin' down too quick
Fall came and love's flame burnt out before winter
That parkin' meter read expired/ truck got towed away
Our love was on a 60-day warranty that ran out.
I'd play that song again, but my SmartPhone is broken
Our love like my truck broke down/needs a new spark plug
It's time to change my shirt/this one's fadin'
I need another pair of blue jeans/these are fadin' too quick
Lyrics of our song didn't last as long as I wanted them too
Our love was like that Pontiac I just got out of the parkin' lot and returned/'cause the engine gave out
Our love was like maple syrup/sweet-tastin' but short-lived
You were like cherry wine/sweet, short-lastin oh so fine
Our love was like the heat of a summer wind blowin' gently on the skin/ felt then gone
The race was at full tilt but didn't reach the finish line.
Our love faded quickly like shadows in the night
Time to write another love song/this one didn't last long
The chewing gum was yummy but lasted a short time.
I need another lifesaver/this one's lost it's flavor
Time to write another song
It's ime to write another song/this one wasn't enjoyed that long
I needed to get off the merry-go-round.
It was one heck of a ride while it lasted!
The embers of our love burnt a short time and were snuffed out
You were like dynamite/had a blast with you
Love's breeze blew briefly in and I closed the window
Story went from start to climax short-lived but enjoyed
Who turned the light on and off fading to black?
We were caught in a smolderin' flame of desire that burnt out
The sun rises then it sets like our love bright then sun going down
Who am I to say who is right. who is wrong/All I feel is this smoldering heartache for love that didn't last long
Our love like a candle glowed brightly, dimmed and burnt out.
Our love was like autumn leaves bright colors fading then dying/cryin' over what we had then lost
You were like a spark to a flame that blazed briefly and burnt out
The taste of love like d.ark chocolate can be short, bittersweet
Like passion's scorchin' desire was our love's short love story.
Love's burnin' ecstasy flame's desire risin' in me.
Your cherry sweet lips smacked and curled as you kissed me, girl.
Lovin' you made more of a man of me, girl.
Made me see who I needed to be, girl.
Lovin' you made me see what I lacked girl.
Girl, loved you all night long kissin' and caressin' in our cozy shack.
Girl, loved you all night long in our cozy shack.
Girl, how we danced as we twisted and twirled to Merle singin' "My Favorite Memory."
Girl, how we did twist and twirl to Merle singin' "My Favorite Memory."
There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back (girl) Marla’s chorus. We danced, twisted and swirled to Merle singin’ “My Favorite Memory.”Loved you all night long in our cozy shack/No, girl, there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back.

Remember that song I wrote for you, girl /Sang about how you got my heart in a whirl/I wouldn't have become the person I am 'cause you gave me what I lack.
I'll never forget that night I gave you that necklace with the pearl/Saw the light in your eyes shine, girl.
I'll never forget that night I gave you that ring with a pearl/Saw the light in your eyes shine, girl.
I thought you'd complete me/mem'ries of your love are healin' me.
You complete me/mem'ries of your love are healin' me.
Girl, I'll always love you/never forget the fun times we had.
We went through the worst/we went through the best.
Through the hurtin' words I''m healin'/hope you are too.
Through the heartache/through the grief, I'm glad for the good times we had.
You wounded me/mem'ries of your love are healin' me.
I''m sad/I'm glad thankful for the good times we had.
This hurtin' won't heal 'til I let go of it.
Through the pain, I remember how much you loved me.
Full of sorrow/full of joy...
Hate put me in jail/love freed me from it.
Hating yet loving you...
Sorrow shackled me/love freed me.
Out of my mind loving you/rememb'ring how you were the best.
Love hurts but it also heals.
Through the sorrow, you brought me joy!
You helped these blind eyes to see the best in me.
You put happiness in my heartache.
Through the gray, I see the blue/the joy of having loved you...
Though our love has flown away I say...
Through the sadness and the sorrow there's....
In every tear, I cry I ask, why did our love die?
There's healin' in the leavin' when...
There ain't one sorry/ain't one love story I'd forget...
Though our love was a mess and the makin' of me I confess...
There's a healin' in goodbye when...
Mem'ries of love tastin' your sweet cherry lips and...
Love can be like a broken heart with healin' in the mendin' and...
While our love song on my laptop plays just wanna say you're the best...
While songs on my Ipod play I just want to say...
Your goodbye took me by surprise but this I can't deny... Credit to Colleen for the not denying concept.
Mem'ries of your tender lips/love's maturin' caress and...
You were the makin' of this romancin' cowboy and...
The rollercoaster ride was the best and the makin' of me but...
Leavin' you tore me in two/'t was for the best.
In the rearview mirror, I'm growin' realizin' in love's test...
Your goodbye took me by surprise but this I realize...
Echos of these love reflections ringin' in my mind but...
Thinkin' 'bout that pressnt/can't rewind the past
Growin' thinkin' of the present/can't live in the past
Growin' rememberin' the present, but can't live in the past.
Though or love was a mess and the makin' of me I confess...
The memory fades but the movie isn't over.
Tears fall and then life blooms.
When one laugh stops another one begins.
When one smile fades another one begins. Credit to Marlasaritkd for the concept of coping and closing.
You're like poblano peppers in Texas chili / hot spice but...
Girl, I'm growin' through the fire love's flame and desire burnin' out but...
Girl, I''m growin' ' through the fire' though love's desire is burnin' fadin' out but...
Time our love can't erase, oh no it can't erase and...
There's a growin' lesson in goodbye but...
In losin’ there is findin’ and growin’ to be the best, but that caress put paid to the rest.
In losin' there is findin' and growin' to be the best, but that one kiss put paid to the rest.
in the lettin' you go, I will grow to be my best.
In the losin' there is finding I can be the best but...
Our love like a candle is flickerin' fadin' fast.
Girl, there's a blessin' in lettin' you go.
There's a blessin' in confessin' that goodbye can be for the best.
Lettin' you go freed me to be the best.
Heartache in lettin' you go is for the best but...
Torn in two letting you go but it was for the best
Stir crazy letting you go but it was for the best
Sorry you ain't here seein' leavin' you made me the best
Regrettin' you ain't here seein' leavin' you made me the best but...
Leavin' you tore my heart in two but it was for the best.
Leavin' you tore me in two but it was for the best.

Darling, when I look at your picture on the table, I'm reminded how I was such a fool to lose you and how much you mean to me.
Memories of times we spent together, holding one another, hearing the birds sing, a clear blue sky, the beauty of the mountains and those tall evergreen trees dancing with the wind. Darling, I was such a fool to lose your love, but the times we shared together will always be so precious to me.
Darling, every lonely night without you tears away at me. I’m so sorry to lose you but I thank you for teaching me I need to be careful of the words I say because they live in my mind reminding me of how I caused you such suffering and pain.
