Album Tracks

1. The Good Life
Casey James/Scooter Carusoe (BMI/ASCAP)

A cup of coffee and a clear head
Jelly over warm cornbread
Feeling ready for whatever the day’s gonna bring

Old boots, socks are new
Neighbors waving, the sky is blue
I may be almost broke but this feeling is free
No doubt I’m right where I belong
No part of this road feels wrong
Yeah, it looks like the good life’s coming on strong

Painted toes and tangled hair
Perfect walk caught my stare
One look I was hooked and I haven’t let it go
Up ahead half a mile
I stopped in to see that smile
Thank you Lord for that angel watching over me

No doubt I’m right where I belong
No part of this road feels wrong
Yeah, it looks like the good life’s coming on strong

Like forgiveness on Sundays
Or syrup and pancakes
We’re meant to be
She opens the door and
She jumps in my arms
Yeah, it’s easy to see

Yeah, no doubt I’m right where I belong
No part of this road feels wrong
Yeah, it looks like the good life

Finally my steps are steady and true
And it’s all because of you
Yeah, it looks like the good life’s coming on strong
The good life’s coming on strong
Well, the good life’s coming on

2. Crying On A Suitcase
Lee Thomas Miller/Tom Shapiro/Neil Thrasher (BMI/ASCAP)

Boy, don’t wait, don’t think, don’t lock the door behind you
Run and jump into your truck and hit the gas
Burn some rubber up
Yeah, your time’s running out, do it now

Take a shortcut, take a back road, take the shoulder to the exit
Skip the parking, screw the ticket, hit the curb and leave it sitting
Whatever it takes, you gotta get to that gate

She’s crying on a suitcase, sitting at the airport
Waiting on the airplane ‘bout to take her out of here
They’re gonna call her number, she’ll sit down by the window
The plane’ll leave the runway and fade into a goodbye sky
You’ve gotta run while you’ve still got time
She’s crying on a suitcase

Admit it boy, you blew it, really messed it up
You can make excuses if you really wanna lose her
It’s all on the line, do or die time, getting on your knees time
Tell her that you want her, need her, love her, gotta have her
Everything good in your life begins and ends with her
Lose your pride while you can, come on, man, be a man

She’s crying on a suitcase, sitting at the airport
Waiting on the airplane ‘bout to take her out of here
They’re gonna call her number, she’ll sit down by the window
The plane’ll leave the runway and fade into a goodbye sky
You’ve gotta run while you’ve still got time
She’s crying on a suitcase

She’s crying on a suitcase
Waiting on the airplane ‘bout to take her out of here
They’re gonna call her number, she’ll sit down by the window
The plane’ll leave the runway and fade into a goodbye sky
You’ve gotta run while you’ve still got time, you’ve still got time
She’s crying on a suitcase
Waiting on the airplane
She’ll fade into a goodbye sky

3. Let’s Don’t Call It A Night
Casey James/Brice Long/Terry McBride (BMI/SESAC)

Love the way you look in that dress
You got me thinking thoughts in my head
The way your body’s moving slowly to the music
Only leaves me wanting more

So baby, let’s don’t call it a night
Love the way you’re holding me tight
When you’re next to me
There’s no place I’d rather be
Everything is feeling so right
So baby, let’s don’t call it a night

Just let that clock tick away
‘Cause in the morning we can sleep in late
Right now let’s spend our time
On what we’ve got in mind
I’ll get up and close the door

Yeah, let’s don’t call it a night
Love the way you’re holding me tight
When you’re next to me
There’s no place I’d rather be
Everything is feeling so right
Now baby, let’s don’t call it a night

Well baby, let’s don’t call it a night
Yeah, love the way you’re holding me, holding me tight
When you’re next to me
There’s no place I’d rather be
Everything is feeling so right
So baby, let’s don’t call it
No, let’s don’t call it a night

4. Drive
Casey James/Brad Warren/Brett Warren (BMI)

I don’t care if it’s a highway or a dirty country road
I don’t care if I’m leaving or coming home
I don’t know if it’s the sound of that tuned-out radio
I don’t know if it’s the smell of that burning smoke
But here I go

I’m headed out to nowhere like a bullet from a gun
Putting miles on me and the wheels I’m rolling on
Slide over baby and I’ll take you for a ride
I just like to drive

Well, I love to feel my worn-out boots stomping on the gas
Love to see your bare feet tapping on the dash
Love to see the hay grass swinging in the breeze
And I love burning up a tank of gasoline
Well, it smells so sweet

I’m headed out to nowhere like a bullet from a gun
Putting miles on me and the wheels I’m rolling on
Slide over baby and I’ll take you for a ride
I just like to drive

I’m headed out to nowhere like a bullet from a gun
Putting miles on me and the wheels I’m rolling on
Slide over baby and I’ll take you for a ride
I just like to drive

I’m headed out to nowhere like a bullet from a gun
Putting miles on me and the wheels I’m rolling on
Slide over baby and I’ll take you for a ride
I just like to drive
Well, I just like to drive
I like to drive
Baby, I just like to drive

5. Love The Way You Miss Me
Casey James/Brice Long/Terry McBride (BMI/SESAC)

Girl, the way you’re talking now
And everything we’re talking ’bout
There ain’t no way, no how
That I can put this phone down
Even though we’re miles apart
I can feel you touching my heart
Lying here in the dark
Wishing I was where you are

Baby, you’re driving me crazy
Girl, if I could, you know I would
I’d be right there, right now
Oh, baby, you’re making me lose my mind
And I’m counting down the days ‘til I get home
I love the way you miss me when I’m gone

You know what I wanna hear
Girl, you’re coming in loud and clear
It’s sweet music to my ears
Oh, what I’d do if you were here

Baby, you’re driving me crazy
Girl, if I could, you know I would
I’d be right there right now
Oh, baby, you’re making me lose my mind
And I’m counting down the days ‘til I get home
I love the way you miss me when I’m gone

Girl, I hate these nights
When I can’t hold you tight
‘Cause I know by your side
Is right where I belong

Baby, you’re driving me crazy
Girl, if I could, you know I would
I’d be right there right now
Oh, baby, you’re making me lose my mind
And I’m counting down the days ‘til I get home
I love the way you miss me when I’m gone

6. Undone
Casey James/Scooter Carusoe (BMI/ASCAP)

Peace of mind sometimes depends
On the path your heart’s been traveling
Mine’s been broken, mine’s been bruised
It’s fallen hard a time or two
And up ‘til now I didn’t know who could save me

I’ve searched around enough to know
About holding on and letting go
And finally I’ve found the one
Who makes me come undone

Now the bad, bad news don’t sound so hard
Long, lonely miles don’t stretch too far
I ain’t up all night praying for sleep
My empty pockets don’t feel so deep
Whatever you’re doing, baby
Keep it coming

I’ve searched around enough to know
About holding on and letting go
And finally I’ve found the one
Who makes me come undone

Undone like the clouds pouring out a perfect rain
Undone like the grace of heaven healing my pain
You lying in my arms, me whispering your name
Won’t ever be the same

Well, I’ve searched around enough to know
About holding on and letting go
And finally I’ve found the one, well, I’ve found the one
That makes me come undone
Well, you make me come undone

7. So Sweet
Casey James/Dallas Davidson/Patrick Davis (BMI)

I used to set my life on cruise control
Days just rolling on
Thought I was doing alright alone
And then I saw your smile
And then you looked my way
Yeah, everything changed and

I don’t know how I got by
How I survived life living without you
Know now what I was missing
‘Cause I’ve wanted your kisses since the day that I found you
Now everything makes sense to me
I never knew that love could be so sweet
Well, love could be so sweet

Your love has taken me to a place
A place I wanna be
It gets better with every breath I breathe
And let your loving ways
Yeah, fall on me like rain
Yeah, everyday and

I don’t know how I got by
How I survived life living without you
Know now what I was missing
‘Cause I’ve wanted your kisses since the day that I found you
Now everything makes sense to me
I never knew that love could be so sweet

Every time we talk, every time we touch
Yeah, every time I look in your eyes
I see how lucky I am and

I don’t know how I got by
How I survived life living without you
Know now what I was missing
‘Cause I’ve wanted your kisses since the day that I found you
Now everything makes sense to me
I never knew that love could be so sweet
Yeah, love could be so sweet
Ooh, love could be so sweet
Well, love could be so, so sweet, yeah

8. She’s Money
Casey James/Jaren Johnston (BMI/ASCAP)

You can take everything that I own
You can take everything that I’ve ever known
You can clean out the bank, burn it all up in flames
Take it all and run, I’ll be OK
‘Cause I don’t need a thing

‘Cause she’s money
Well, she’s silver and gold
Pure honey
So good for my soul
Whether rain or sunny
She’s money

Got all the green I need in her emerald eyes
I got empty pockets, babe, but I still get by
My ride ain’t fancy but she don’t care
That don’t matter as long as it gets us there
And that’s why

She’s money
Well, she’s silver and gold
Pure honey
So good for my soul
I love this greed
She’s all that I need
Whether rain or sunny
She’s whoo
She’s money, baby

She’s money
Oh, she’s silver and gold
Pure honey, babe
So good for my soul, yeah

She’s money
Oh, silver and gold
Pure honey, babe
So good for my soul
I love this greed
She’s all that I need
Whether rain or sunny
She’s money
Well, she’s money

9. Tough Love
Casey James/Brett James/David Lee Murphy (BMI/ASCAP)

They said we’d never make it
They said we’d never last
They said this love was a hurricane
That would come and go so fast
But baby, we’re still standing
We’re still going strong
So take my hand, don’t look back
We’re gonna prove that they were wrong

It’s just you and me
It don’t matter, baby, what they say
‘Cause we ain’t listening to them anyway
Gonna make them see
Just keep on making a stand
Gonna show them just how tough love
Show them how tough love can be

I know you get nervous
And I know you get scared
Don’t you worry, baby, I ain’t goin’ anywhere
‘Cause I am strong enough to hold you close when times get bad
You are my reason for every dream I ever had

It’s just you and me
It don’t matter, baby, what they say
‘Cause we ain’t listening to them anyway
Gonna make them see
Just keep on making a stand
Gonna show them just how tough love
Show them how tough love can be

They said we’d never make it
They said we’d never last
They said this love was a hurricane
That would come and go so fast

But it’s just you and me
And it don’t matter, baby, what they say
‘Cause we ain’t listening to them anyway
Gonna make them see
Just keep on making a stand
Gonna show them just how tough love
How tough love, how tough love can be

Bob DiPiero/Brandon Kinney/Daniel Tashian (BMI)

My old truck won’t turn
But, I’m workin’ on it
Ain’t got no money to burn

I ain’t tangled up in that long blonde hair

But, I’m workin’, yeah, I’m workin’

And it’s all there in my head

In a cover band in a country bar

11. Miss Your Fire
Casey James/Chris Lindsey/Aimee Mayo (BMI/ASCAP)

It’s 3 a.m. and I’m wide awake
I keep wondering where you are
This empty ache, it cuts through me
Like a piece of glass in the heart

Oh, I miss your fire
Oh, I miss your fire

Your passion made me feel alive
Like the blue inside of a flame
Well, I can’t get you off my mind
It burns me when I hear your name

Oh, I miss your fire
Oh, I miss your fire

This bed is freezing cold
I never felt so alone
And I can’t get you off my mind
There’s so much that we left unsaid
So much that I can’t forget
I just wanna hold you tonight

I’m tossin’, turnin’ in these sheets
You still keep me up all night
I miss the way you weren’t ashamed
The way you never closed your eyes

Oh, I miss your fire
Oh, I miss your fire
Miss your fire
I miss your fire

Non-Album Song Lyrics

Done Made Up My Mind
I couldn’t leave here
Never good as gone
I always left it way too nice, babe
I don’t plan on making that mistake again
Ain’t nothing like a bad goodbye
Ya, Every bridge behind me burning down
Ain’t no use in turning around
Ain’t no going back this time
Well, I done made up my mind

Don’t hear those voices telling me I’m wrong
Only voice I’m hearing is my own
Fire in my rearview
My future up ahead
All I gotta do is get gone, Ya
Every bridge behind me burning down
I’ve gone too far for turning around
Ain’t no going back this time
Well I done made up my mind

Every bridge behind me burning down
I’ve gone too far for turning around
Ain’t no going back this time
No I cant stay and hold that line
I cant stay and hold that line babe

Every bridge behind be burning down
Gone too far for turning around
Ain’t no going back this time no no
Well I done made up my mind

Til My Guitar
By Casey James, Gary Nicholson & Jon Randall

If I was a drinkin’ man, I’d know just what to do
I’d go find the darkest hour?? and I’d knock me back a few
But for me there’s just no way to get over you
‘Til my guitar gets tired of playin’ the blues

If another woman could feel right in my arms
Wouldn’t be alone tonight wondering where you are
‘Cause for me there’s just no way to get over you
Til my guitar gets tired of playin’ the blues

As long as your memory only has one remedy
Playin til my fingers bleed like there’s nothing left to lose
Til my guitar gets tired of playin’ the blues

As long as your memory only has one remedy
Playin’ til my fingers bleed like there’s nothing left to lose
Til my guitar gets tired of playin’ the blues
Playin’ til my fingers bleed like there’s nothing left to lose
Til my guitar, til my guitar gets tired of playin’ the blues

Casey introduced this song on 4/30 by saying, about the writing of this song: “I moved to Nashville back in October from Ft. Worth, Texas…I was feeling a little bit lonely and so this song’s kind of a representation of that.”

Bulletproof
By Casey James, Delbert McClinton & “Big Al” Anderson

I want to be there
in that crowd;
I want the music
up way too loud.

Can you hear me
I’m feelin like I’m

Show Me a Bridge
By Casey James &?

Two weeks in
Here I am still right here
Usually be two, three days gone

Girl I try to do what’s right
My biggest fear is like always
I’d just wind up going wrong

Show me a bridge, I’ll show you a fire
I’m bound to burn us both with my selfish desires
Girl my whole life has been
a path of molten ash and smokin’ tires
Show me a bridge, I’ll show you a fire

People change, that’s one thing I’m countin’ on
‘Cause I’ve never wanted anything more to last
Like I want you, I want me to stay here forever
Girl I’m afraid my future can’t outrun my past

Show me a bridge and I’ll show you a fire
Bound to burn us both with my selfish desires

Girl my whole life has been a path of molten ash and smokin’ tires
Show me a bridge, I’ll show you a fire
Show me a bridge and I’ll show you a fire

I Lied
By Casey James &?

I don’t know what I just said
But don’t get the wrong idea
I hear wheels spinning in your head now
Don’t believe everything you hear

Just stand there let me explain
Cause if I said I loved you, I lied
Cause love’s just a word
And it can’t describe
All these feelings of
There’s so much more
I feel inside
If I said I loved you, I lied
Oh if I said I loved you, I lied

I need everything about you
Though all I want to do is let you know
I want to wrap my arms around you
And I don’t ever want to ever to let you go
It’s something I can’t explain
So if I said I loved you, I lied
Cause love’s just a word
And it can’t describe
All these feelings of
There’s so much more
I feel inside
If I said I loved you, I lied

So if I said I loved you, I lied
Cause loves just a word
And it can’t describe
All these feelings of
There so much more
I feel inside
If I said I loved you, I lied
Oh if I said I loved you, I lied
Man if I said I loved you, I lied

Hold On
By Casey James and Kristian Bush

Time is slow, fog is rising
Sky is broken far as I can see
I can see through the darkness stars are shining.
There’s a voice that carries me
sayin’ hold on hold on.
It’ll turn before too long.
When it feels just like all hope is gone
Don’t give up, baby hold on.

Heartbreak follows me all around you
covered up in brick and dust
Rose grows
out of the rubble
Whispering love to each of us.
sayin’ hold on hold on.
It’ll turn before too long.
When it feels just like all hope is gone
Don’t give up, baby hold on.

ummmm
We’ll find faith to rise above it
Find a rock where you can stand
When the ground stopped shakin’ neath you
what you know has fallen down
Take a hand babe if they need you
don’t let go of what you’ve found

Hold on Hold on
It’ll turn before too long
When it feels just like all hope is gone
don’t give up baby hold on

Sayin’ Hold on, hold on
it’ll turn before too long
when you feel like you, you cant’ go on
don’t give up baby hold on
I say hold on

Why I’m Feeling Blue
By Casey James &?

Yellow sun beatin’ down on me
Yellow flower on the city streets
Yellow cab could bring me back to you
So tell me why am I feeling blue

Red lipstick on a coffee cup
Red light stops the traffic long enough
For me to see a girl in red that looks like you
So tell me why am I feeling blue

‘Cause this is where we were the night
You looked at me and said goodbye
And nothing hurts like the truth
I guess that’s why I’m feeling blue

Maybe I just need to close my eyes
So I can get you off my mind
‘Cause every color I see makes me think of you
And that’s why I’m feeling blue

‘Cause this is where we were the night
You looked at me and said goodbye
And nothing hurts like the truth
I guess that’s why I’m feeling blue

Shine Your Shoes
By Casey James

I woke up early this morning
Somebody was tappin on me
He said, “Man, ya best get movin.”
Ya just can’t sleep out on the street

So you see me on the corner
Same old boots down on my feet
And I know that I ain’t picture perfect, baby
But I sure could use some food to eat

Yeah, and I’ll, I’ll wash your windows, shine your shoes
Ya give me something I can do
Well I’m just tryin to make my way
Spendin my time here on earth
Lookin for things that have more worth
Than all this stuff you think you need

Now you see me at that stop light
And you quickly turn and look away
And I don’t think that it’s mighty strange, baby
How fast you want that light to change

But you might say that I’m just lazy
And I won’t tell you that it ain’t true, babe
But while you sit there in that office, girl
Yeah, gonna have a better day than you

Yes, it’s true and I’ll, I’ll wash your windows, shine your shoes
Give me something I can do
Well I’m just tryin to make my way
No, no, na no, Spendin my time here on earth
Lookin for things that have more worth
Than all this stuff you think you need, yeah

Well I’ll, I’ll wash your windows, shine your shoes
Give me something I can do
Well I’m just tryin to make my way
No, no, spendin my time here on earth
Lookin for things that have more worth
Than all this stuff you think you need

No, no, no, na, no, no
Do, do, do , do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, doot, do, do

You Need Some Texas
By Casey James and Kristian Bush

Don’t need no farm boy, a big green tractor
You don’t need no white beach, some pretty actor
You don’t need no dirt road to kick up some dust
You don’t need that mud

So get out your boots, old guitars and rusty strings
And let ’em loose
Throw your head back when you sing
These baby blues
Might not be what you were expecting
But I know what you need
You need some Texas

If a red rose feels like it misses
I will bring you bluebonnet kisses
Baby there’s no mystery
What you get is what you see

If something’s missing from what you’re getting
I know what you need

So get out your boots, old guitars and rusty strings

And let ’em loose
Throw your head back when you sing
These baby blues
Might not be what you expected, baby, yeah
Well I come from Texas, let me tell you now.
I know what you need.

If you’re not finding what you’re after
And you need a long day full of laughter
Baby there’s no mystery
I know what you need
Come on home with me

So kick off your boots
Let your hair down while I play and let it loose
Come and see there’s more inside these baby blues
They might not be what you were expecting
I know what you need
You need some… ooo hoo

Crazy Tonight
By Casey James, David Lee Murphy & Brett James

We’re headed down to Cowtown
That Friday biker crowd is rolling in
We loaded through the back door
Pull the guitars out, plug ‘em in

I step up to the microphone
Check to see the sound is working right
Well I guarantee you one thing
It’s gonna get crazy tonight

Frankie’s cleaning glasses
While the barmaid watches ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Just wait a couple hours
There’ll be 15 girls dancing on the bar

They’ll be swinging from the rafters
Underneath those neon lights
I guarantee you one thing
It’s gonna get crazy tonight

It’s gonna get crazy
We might stay ’til morning light
But it won’t faze me
Everything’s gonna be alright
We’re gonna get crazy tonight

Gonna get crazy
We might stay ’til morning light
But it won’t faze me
Everything’s gonna be alright
We’re gonna get crazy tonight

It’s gonna get crazy tonight
Gonna get crazy tonight

Never Walk Away
By Casey James and Natalie Hemby

I had a dream that I woke to find
You were flying along through the friendly skies
Traveling far to a warmer place
Trying to change the life we made

Swimming alone in a sea of blue
Letting the tide bring you to the moon
Whether by boat or whether by train
I know that you have to leave
It’s the world you need to see
Promise me that you’ll never walk away

Fast as a fleeting thought you run
And disappear like the setting sun
Whether for a week or whether for a day
I know that you have to leave
It’s the world you need to see
Promise me that you’ll never walk away

Like fields of cotton dressed in white
Winds that blow through desert nights
None of these will make you feel at home
City lights in distant places
Unfamiliar nameless faces
None of these will make you feel at home

I had a dream and I woke to find
You were sound asleep laying by my side
You opened your blue-green eyes to see
This beautiful life you made with me

This beautiful life you made with me
This beautiful life you made with me
