Dwight Yoakam - The Heartaches Are Free

Album: "Tomorrow's Sounds Today" (2000)

Buddy, you might think
That I've lost my mind
But mister, I'd pay twice
To do it one more time

It cost a thousand tears
And wore out my knees
But buddy, that's okay
The heartaches are free

You probably thought I'd used
Up every brain I had
But mister, once you've tried
You'll swear that it ain't bad

It cost a thousand tears
And'll wear out your knees
But buddy, that's okay
The heartaches are free

[BRIDGE:]
Hey man, if she takes a notion
To sell you a hit of potion
Waste no time
And boss, if you need a reason
To pay for all her teasin'
Well, just take mine

It cost a thousand tears
And'll wear out your knees
But buddy, that's okay
The heartaches are free

Yeah, I can guarantee
The heartaches are free

Honey, if you only knew
What I've the will to do

Each blades embrace

Any sacrifice that I'm prepared to make
All for love's sake

For love's sake

Dwight Yoakam - Dreams Of Clay

Album: "Tomorrow's Sounds Today" (2000)

I'd been building hopes so long
Honey, I must have lost sight of what went wrong
'Cause in sorrow's blinding light today
Baby, it looks like my dreams were made of clay

Years of yearning spent for you
Honey, I know now were the cravings of a fool
I guess your wants just slipped away
And baby, it looks like my dreams were made of clay

[BRIDGE:]
I knew love could toss you down
An' leave you there to crawl around
But never thought that was a fall we'd make

Getting up was nothing new
The kind of thing hearts learn to do
But knowing how doesn't mean it's easy to take

So I'll forget about
Plans we had for me and you
And dwell on thoughts lonely lives pursue
Praying memories don't stay
'Cause baby, it looks like our dreams were made of clay

So I'll forget about
Plans we had for me and you
And dwell on thoughts lonely lives pursue
Praying memories don't stay
'Cause baby, it looks like our dreams were made of clay

Yeah baby, it looks like our dreams were made of clay

Dwight Yoakam - The Sad Side Of Town

Album: "Tomorrow's Sounds Today" (2000)

We've agreed not to mention any memories
Or share a single passing thought
That's just better for all concerned, is what we've found
When you're living on the sad side of town

There's always hope, but we don't ever let it show
'Cause hopes start out real small, but how they just grow
And, just like dreams, are better left alone, is what we've found
When you're living on the sad side of town

[BRIDGE:]
Please never bring up how she used to laugh at night
Would smell so sweet and giggle when I squeezed her tight
If you can put a stop to that, there's a chance you might
Fit in here well enough to try this style of life

Dwight Yoakam - A Place To Cry

Album: "Tomorrow's Sounds Today" (2000)

What I'm looking for is all I need
'Cause what I've wanted most is some space between
Her heart and mine
Which sure ain't no small chore to find

What I get will lead to what I do
I just hope that's not later than it's soon
Or else all night
I'll be up again alright
'Cause what I straight up need to score
Is a place to cry

[BRIDGE:]
I don't need a lot
Just some quiet spot
That won't stain from tears
Please, I'd rather not
See us both get caught
With cleaning up that could take years

This ain't over until once it's through
But once more's twice as much as I can use
Or care to try
For my eyes to get dry
'Cause man the fix I need right now
Is a place to cry

[BRIDGE]

What starts hurting worst is not as strong
As the aches that happen next, then before long
It passes by
But not until I want to die
'Cause what I'm strung out for
Is a place to cry

Yeah, what I'm jonesin' for right now
Is a place to cry

Dwight Yoakam - A Promise You Can't Keep

Album: "Tomorrow's Sounds Today" (2000)

I heard you swear your love this morning
And it caught me almost wanting to believe
The three little words that serve as warning
And say it's just a promise you can't keep

[BRIDGE:]
A statement that's been so used
I felt compelled to tell you
But knew there wasn't much to say
I could have threatened leavin'
Or listed hopeless reasons
If I didn't have this need to stay

Three little words should be my warning
'Cause I know that's a promise you can't keep

Three little words should be my warning
'Cause I know that's a promise you can't keep

I heard you swear your love this morning
