1. One Good Day [3:31]

When life is tearing me apart
And I canít stand the strain
Of ringing phones and pager tones
And deadlines I canít change
I close my eyes, and let your face
Fill up my memory
And wish that I could wake up
To a new reality

Give me one good day
When things are going right
And I can find some peace of mind
To get me through the night
And you are lying close to me
As the twilight slips away
That would be enough for me
One good day

You told me I could reach the stars
And then you watched me shine
I made the grades and made the rounds
But missed the vital signs
Now scalpel blades and x-rays
Could never let me see
How I came to be this man
Who really isnít me

Success is just a hollow rush
That lingers in your veins
But pride can't start an empty heart
And I'd give it all away for

One good day
When things are going right
And I can find some peace of mind
To get me through the night
And you are lying close to me
As the twilight slips away
That would be enough for me
One good day

A second chance, another dance
One good day

2. Changing Horses [3:58]

After so many seasons, itís hard to recall
The rhymes and the reasons that started it all
But I made my choices in a younger manís skin
Now itís time to start over again

Changing horses
Can you ever remember your dreams?
Changing horses
Do you dare to cross over the stream?
When you risk it all
The higher you ride, the farther you fall

I worked hard and waited, while my dreams slowly died
My pockets were full, but I was empty inside
And I finally realized my biggest mistakes
Were the chances that I didnít take

Changing horses
Can you ever remember your dreams?
Changing horses
Do you dare to cross over the stream?
When you risk it all
The higher you ride, the farther you fall

Youíre trapped on the shoreline where the water is wide
You hear a voice calling from the opposite side
Chances are horses and you must decide
Let the horse that you choose be the one you can ride

Changing horses
Can you ever remember your dreams?
Changing horses
Do you dare to cross over the stream?
When you risk it all
The higher you ride, the farther you fall
When you risk it all,
The higher you ride, the farther you fall.

4. We Don't Have To Say Good-bye [4:13]

I lift her up into the truck and buckle up her seat
I put her backpack and Teddy bear down beside her feet
She folds her arms and pouts her lips, she doesnít make a sound
As another weekend visit winds down
A five-year-old with teary eyes can tear a father up inside
But I know when this Sunday drive is done

We don't have to say good-bye
Baby there's no need to cry
I canít see you every day
But when Iím far away
Your heart will still be close to mine
We'll be together soon
Next Friday afternoon
We don't have to say good-bye

Her Mom and I, Lord knows our life didnít turn out like we planned
Now Iím just a weekend Dad, but I do the best I can
Sheís got some friends and her own room, thereís always lots to do
But this back and forth is leaving her confused
Blame someone, make her choose, thatís a game we all lose
I watch the road and tell her one more time

We don't have to say good-bye
Baby there's no need to cry
I canít see you every day
But when Iím far away
Your heart will still be close to mine
We'll be together soon
Next Friday afternoon
We don't have to say good-bye

I stop in front of Momís house and turn the engine off
She takes her backpack and Teddy bear and we go up the walk
I ring the bell, I turn to go, but then she pulls my sleeve
And I look at her through misty eyes, as she says to me

We don't have to say good-bye
Daddy there's no need to cry
I canít see you every day
But when Iím far away
Your heart will still be close to mine
We'll be together soon
Come get me Friday afternoon
We don't have to say good-bye

5. Waves On The Water (Chico's Song) [4:38]

I remember when you came to me
You were trying to outrun heredity
But something dark was flowing through your veins
With virulence that I could not explain
On and on, here and gone
The answers might be crazy
But the questions can't be wrong
Stand your ground
Before the rising waters pull you down

The waves on the water roll along
Winter winds will rock you
And chill you to the bone
You can float upon the surface
Or sink like a stone
But the waves on the water roll along

When I told you it was time to choose
The only choice you had was how to lose
I watched that fire burning in your soul
Surrender to the darkness and the cold
You had dreams, you had faith
But on that day they vanished
And your angels flew away
You canít hide
When youíre caught between the reaches of the tide

The waves on the water roll along
Winter winds will rock you
And chill you to the bone
You can float upon the surface
Or sink like a stone
But the waves on the water roll along

The beating of a heart is like a song
It's true, but doesn't last for long
The drawing of a breath is like the wind
It fades, but then comes round again
What it means, I canít tell
Iím still trying to learn the lesson
Chico knew so well
Take that ride
Donít stop until the water meets the sky

The waves on the water roll along
Winter winds will rock you
And chill you to the bone
You can float upon the surface
Or sink like a stone
But the waves on the water
Waves on the water
Waves on the water roll along

9. The Only Thing Missing is You (The Cliché Song) [2:51]

The truck is in the driveway
The dog is in the yard
Iím sittin in the kitchen
Drinkin really hard
The line is full of laundry
The skyís a perfect blue
The only thing missing is you

The only thing missing is your gentle touch
I canít live without you
I love you so much
I thought it meant forever
When we said ďI doĒ
Now the only thing missing is you

Iím trying to figure out
Why you left me this way
Was it something that I said
Or, maybe, didnít say?
What straw broke the camelís back?
I wish I had a clue
Why the only thing missing is you

The only thing missing is your sweet smile
Which hasnít been spotted
ĎRound these parts in a while
But love is blind and hard to find
So Iíll have another brew
Cause the only thing missing is you

Soon it will be bedtime
Thatís when we would rendezvous
I guess I could start all by myself
But itís more fun with two
I sure could use a little
Of that voodoo that you do
The only thing missing is you

The only thing missing is your pretty face
Which seems to have vanished
Without any trace
Whatís wrong with this picture
Is sad, but itís true
The only thing missing
Iíd rather be kissing
Perhaps Iíll go fishing
Cause the only thing missing is you

10. Carry Me Home [3:51]

There was a time when I was lost
Had no light to find my way
You gave me sight to guide my steps
Along the path through night and day
When I trembled, when I stumbled
You were there to lead me on

You lift me up
You take me over
You carry me home

The road is narrow, the road is long
But your love is all I need
When Iím weary of the struggle
You will keep me company
And when my legs have taken me
Just as far as I can go

You lift me up
You take me over
You carry me home

Iím not as strong as you think I am
But I will follow you and see
If I can try to justify
This faith you have in me

When my time is almost through
And I am near my journeyís end
Iíll have no fear or apprehension
About the trials that lie ahead
With you here by my side
I wonít ever be alone

You lift me up
You take me over
You carry me home

And I know you will be with me
In that dark before the dawn
You lift me up
You take me over
You carry he home
