30 Song Lyrics I Love

-----Today is the day!!! I'm off to Nashville with the Scrap Etc. Team to get busy on the event!! I've got three girlies riding with me and I can't wait to get the car loaded and pick everyone up!! YEAH!!! - So no blogging probably while I'm gone, but I'll catch up when I get back!!!

I'll post my list for today and then hopefully come back and add the playlist back with the songs I've picked later. My old computer rejected blogs with playlist - it would take so long to load that the page would just freeze. So I took mine off. But it'll be back later today!!!

Again - these are in no particular order at all and listed by the performer, not necessarily the writer of the song.

1. "Wouldn't take much for me to up and run To another life somewhere in the sun" (No list would be complete without mention of Kenny) from "Somewhere in the Sun" by Kenny Chesney

2. "Here's to love lost and newfound friends And living out life in the boat we're in" from "Soul of a Sailor" by Kenny Chesney

3. "I'll speak my Southern English just as natural as I please. I'm in the heart of Dixie, Dixie's in the heart of me" from "My Home's in Alabama" by Alabama (can't sing it without getting a little teary eyed - really!!)

{obviously I'm just a country girl at heart}

4. "If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says When she says she loves me' from "If You Could Only See" by Tonic. Jason asked me to marry him during this song at a concert in Mobile. I loved this song at the time so very much - the words meant a lot in our relationship even though my eyes are green!!

5. "Don't just stand there, say nice things to me" from "Push" by Matchbox 20. I've loved them from the beginning and saw them in concert in April of 1997 (wow 11 years ago) at Oak Mountain back when there was a lawn and you could just throw out a blanket and sit. We were at the first X-Fest (anyone in the B'ham area remember that?). It rained and me, Michelle and Janet were determined to not give up and leave like everyone else had (well Jason and his friends). I remember we were just about the only people on the lawn standing up and we were singing along at the top of our lungs. Good Stuff.

6. "You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name." from "Indescribable" by Chris Tomlin. This is my new favorite song!!

7. 'As her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Check the oil!" Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm leaving my girl" She said, "It didn't seem like that long ago" When she stood there and let her own folks know She needed wide open spaces Room to make her big mistakes She needs new faces She knows the high stakes" from "Wide Open Spaces" by the Dixie Chicks (who I am no longer a fan of, but love this song regardless.

8. "Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic But I had a good life all the way." from "He Went to Paris" by Jimmy Buffett.

9. "There comes a time in everyone's life When all you can see are the years passing by" from "I'm Movin' On" by Rascal Flatts.

10. "I hope you never look back, but ya never forget, All the ones who love you, in the place you left, I hope you always forgive, and you never regret, And you help somebody every chance you get, Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake, And you always give more than you take." from "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts.

11. "Better than I was, more than I am And all of this happened by taking your hand " from "It's Your Love" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. (This is OUR song)

12. "I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean " from "I Hope You Dance" by LeAnne Womack. (this was popular around the time Cole was born and I would play it for him when he was cranky and he always settled down).

13. "And this love Is like nothing I have ever known, no no baby Take my hand love I'm taking you home I'm taking you, home where we can be with the ones who really care Home, where we can grow together Keep you in, my heart forever" from "Taking you Home" by Don Henley.

14. "She's a picture in my wallet and my unborn children's mother She's the hand that I'm holding When I'm on my knees and praying She's the answer to my prayer And she's the song that I'm playing" from "She's Everything" by Brad Paisley. (I really get teary eyed the first time I heard this song - I was a little jealous of his wife - he writes such beautiful songs for HER and the whole world gets to listen)

15. "I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy And he'll match me step for step And I'll tell him how I missed him Every minute since he leftThen I'll hug his neck" from "When I Get Where I'm Going" by Brad Paisley. This is my favorite part, but I think of my Granny!!

I'm half way there - this is tough!!

16. "She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway" from "3 A.M." by Matchbox 20

17. "Theres something in the way she moves, Or looks my way, or calls my name, That seems to leave this troubled world behind." from "Something in the Way She Moves" by James Taylor.

18. "I really really hate that stupid old pickup truck you never let me drive. You're a redneck heartbreak, who's really bad at lying........." from "Picture to Burn" by Taylor Swift - I just love her!!

19. "And I go back to the loss of a real good friend And the sixteen summers I shared with him" from "I Go Back" by Kenny Chesney. My cousin in law died almost two years ago and this song makes me think of him. I had known him for exactly 16 summers........

20. "What I need to do is turn this car around Drive as fast as I can 'til I see the lights of our hometown And run to her, take her in my arms Make her see how sorry I am, well that shouldn't be so hard" from "What I Need To Do" by Kenny Chesney. No real sentimental thing here just love the song.

This is the hardest list I've ever made!! So I think the last twenty will be songs I just love - the whole song, no special part of the song.

21. These Days - by Rascal Flatts

22. Mendocino County Line - Willie Nelson and Leanne Womack

23. How Am I Supposed to Live Without You - Michael Bolton (Please don't laugh)

24. Love Song - Tesla

25. She Thinks my Tractor's Sexy - Kenny Chesney (it ain't the tractor) and Cole loves to sing it!

26. Better as a Memory - Kenny Chesney

27. High and Dry - Suburban Love Junkie (that's an oldie for me)

28. Ain't Even Done with the Night - John Cougar Mellencamp

29. Watching Airplanes - Gary Allan

30. My Savior Lives - Hillsongs - Cole loves this one the most!!

Well, there you have it - a list of songs i love and some lyrics that are meaningful in some way to me!
