Lyrics From This Thing Called Wantin' And Havin' It All


Nothin' Less Then Love
MPG3

Look where we are
Traveled all around our hearts
To get back to the start
The road's not easy
But it kept on leading you and me
Till we could see

Chorus
That nothing less then love can take us
Where we need to go
Nothing less then love can teach us
Anything we need to know
Ain't no mystery
Now you're with me
And what I feel
Is nothing less then love

The world Is turning with our
Planes and bullet trains and faster cars
We go to far
We buy our books and
Study all the matters of the heart
And we think we're smart
Chorus repeats twice
Oh what I feel
Oh what I feel
Is nothing less then love

Big Picture
MPG3

It was my junior year
I believe it was in the fall
The first time I decided that I knew it all
I was moving right along
Thinkin' that I could do no wrong
I remember hearin' someone say
They told me

Chorus
It's a big picture
Little man
It takes a while to understand
You don't always know where you're gonna fit in

When you get through winning the human race
Somebody's there to take your place
So live and love the best you can and remember
The big picture

I was twenty-one I remember back in the spring
The first time I could tell I didn't know a thing
The girl cut me to the bone
I was lookin' to wind up all alone
I remember hearing somebody say
They told me

Chorus
It's a big picture
Little man
It takes a while to understand
You don't always know where you're gonna fit in
When you fall down running the human race
Somebody's there to save your face
So live and love the best you can and remember
The big picture

Bridge
It cuts you down to size
And sometimes I need it
Right before your eyes
I can finally see

Chorus
It's a big picture
Little man
It takes a while to understand
You don't always know where you're gonna fit in
You just keep on running the human race
Follow your heart and find your place
So live and love the best you can and remember
Oh live and love the best you can and remember
The big picture
It's a big picture

I Will Leave The Light On
MPG3

Don't know why you must go
I'm not sure you really know
Remember me, how easy and tender that it used to be
There's no right, there's no wrong
I just want you back where you belong

And that's why
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on for you

You can run, but you can't hide
From the feeling you bury inside
In my heart, I know this is true
It's one of the things that I learned from you
Lovers come, lovers go
And there's much more to this then you know

That is why
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on for you

When your fair weathered friends
Leave you standing by yourself in the pouring rain
When the nights are dark and lonely
Call my name, call my name
You can retrace your steps
Oh but don't you forget

I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on for you

Don't know why, you have gone
Hope you can find your way home
Until then... I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on for you

This Thing Called Wantin' And Havin' It All
MPG3

Rich man grew old, owned a mansion on top of the hill
Now he's sitting at the table with his lawyer
Goin' over his will 'cause he's ill
The kids don't call, they're waitin' for the man to die
He's gonna leave 'em all a little somethin'
But they're gonna be real surprised
There's a poor man livin' on a budget at the bottom of the hill

With a wife and two kids and a worried mind
About how he's gonna pay the bills
Well, only the rich man knows see,
That's where a lot of his money goes
To the man that brought wood in the winter
To take a little weight off his shoulders

Chorus
There's this thing called wantin' and havin' it all
If you're gonna get there you're gonna have to walk
But first you'll have to crawl
And you know you've gotta do it step by step
Miss one and you'll fall into this well
Called wantin' and havin' it all

Poor man has everything that the rich man don't
He's got love in his life and his heart
He's got a house he calls home
The rich man owns everything from miles around
But what he needs can't be bought it has to be found

His rich kids think that they're better 'cause they're better off
That's how they grew up thinkin' and now
He thinks it's all his fault
So while there's still time the daddy that they nickel and dime
Is gonna make 'em learn to take a turn
And stand in line

Chorus
Bridge
See life's full of changes
And wantin' right now what you only see in your dreams
I know you don't like it and think
It's the strangest thing you've ever seen ... well
There ain't nothin' you can do about it

Another Mile
MPG3

I was sittin' at the station
Waiting for a sign
It was closed for renovation
You smiled as you walked by
You were a long time in coming
I've waited quite a while
Here we are rollin'
And we've gone another mile

Chorus
Another mile
One more mile
We can make it down this road girl you and I
Love grows strong just hold on
And you'll find that we've gone another mile

This world moves in circles
Never one straight line
It keeps us all from seeing
What lies ahead to find
But I know when I get home
You're the reason why
I had to keep on goin'
Till I'd gone another mile

Chorus repeats twice
And you'll find that we've gone
Yes you'll find that we've gone
Another mile

'Round Here
MPG3

Sue and Jack fell in love 'round here
They been goin' steady now for years
He couldn't afford much of anything
But he worked and bought her a diamond ring
And that's the way we do it 'round here

Chorus
That's the way it is and that's the way its done 'round here
That's the way we live and that's the way we love 'round here
Strong hearts and folded hands
A workin' woman and a workin' man
That's the way it is and that's the way its done 'round here

You and I will fuss and fight 'round here
But after all this time one thing is clear
We get hurt and broken hearted
But we won't give up what we started
That's the way we do it 'round here

Chorus
That's the way it is and that's the way its done 'round here
That's the way we live and that's the way we love 'round here
Strong hearts and folded hands
A workin' woman and a workin' man
That's the way it is and that's the way its done 'round here

That's the way it's done 'round here
That's the way it's done 'round here
Yea that's the way we do it 'round here

She's Gettin' There
MPG3

She loves playin' hard to get, so I just play along
She likes to think she's real tough
But I know she ain't that strong
I can see it in her eyes
In her heart I know she cares
Oh she ain't mine yet, but she's gettin' there

Chorus
She's gettin' there, one kiss at a time
Her heart beware, she's showing all the signs
She don't know she loves me but
I can feel it in the air
Oh she ain't mine yet, but she's gettin' there

She slips up every now and then, talks about settling down
And when she catches herself, she'll try to do a turnaround
She'll claim she needs her space
Then want to get together somewhere
Oh she ain't mine yet, but she's gettin' there

Chorus
She's gettin' there
She's gettin' there
She's gettin' there
She's gettin' there
She's gettin' there

Treat Her Right
MPG3

A lot of people breaking hearts these days
Giving up and just walking away
Forever's just another word
That you hear young lovers say
I know it may be old fashioned, but I still believe
Love stays when the strong winds blow
Even when it hurts, don't let go

Chorus
You've got to treat her right, understand
That she's your woman and you're her man
Tell her that you need her
Like the desert needs the rain
And if you treat her right, show her you care
When you need her she'll be there
Like an island in the storm, a beacon in the night
If you love her, treat her right

A good woman ain't easy to find
The faithful and the loving kind
And if you don't hold her tight
She'll slip right through your hands
Love gives more than it takes
So be willing for her sake
Stand by her when the strong winds blow
Even when it hurts, don't let go

Chorus
She's your best friend and your lover
So if you want to keep her
Take good care of her

If you treat her right, show her you care
When you need her, she'll be there
Like an island in the storm, a beacon in the night
If you love her treat her right

Treat her right
Treat her right

Like A John Deere
MPG3

When a city girl starts takin' back the love she gave away
The good ole boy with calloused hands
He don't know what to say
He ain't good at giving up no matter how it hurts
All he knows in this world is how to make things work

Chorus
Oh if hearts were built like John Deere tractors
There'd be happy ever afters
Strong, true and tough, and made of steel
They pull through when times get hard
And never fall apart
If hearts were built like a John Deere

All she left was just a trail of dust across the farm
He just turned and shook his head
And walked back to the barn
Well he's got questions about love
He never thought he'd ask
In his mind when somthing's made
It should be made to last

Chorus

Small Town Hero
MPG3

I just turned twenty-nine three years in a row
Too young to be the president
Too old to turn pro
But when the seventies came and elvis died
I could not fill his shoes
But oh how I tried

It was the life and time of a small town hero
But it's another day
I've got my wife, my kids, a job and it's ok
This letter of intent now, is just for show
They say it's lonely at the top
So I did not go

Andy went to Vietnam back in sixty-five
While some folks kept from going
He kept some folks alive
A purple heart is on his shelf
That he never wears
A broken one sit in his chest
For what he lost there

It was the life and times of a small town hero
But it's another day
He's got his wife, his kids, a job and it's ok
The letter from the president now, is just for show
He could have hid out way up north
But he did not go

John got his notice, gonna take the farm away
He worked it half his life
He worked Ii every day
He burned his fields his crops
And the barn before they came
The neighbors cheered and watched as john walked away

It was the life and times of a small town hero
But it's another day
He's got his wife, his kids, a job and it's ok
The letter from the bank went up in smoke
Just when they thought he was down
He did not go
It was the life and times of a small town hero
