Track Name: You & Me & the Radio
We were just kids, drivin' out in my daddy's car
Kickin' up enough dust that we couldn't see the shining stars
Like we were never going back, we were never going back
Back to that one horse town

(CHORUS)
It was just you and me and the radio
A light guiding lovers with the world in tow
Crank it up for that song we know
You and me and the radio
You and me and the radio
We could break all the rules, or just go slow
Ain't no place that we can't go
Just you and me and the radio

Well life caught up pretty quick after the honeymoon
Had bills to pay and a baby on the way, soon
I was workin' two jobs just to bring home a little bit of dough
But Friday night, pick you up after work, and your face lit up in the glow of

(CHORUS)

Well the kids, they've been talking about you and me driving
Eyes ain't perfect and the years keep on climbing
But maybe we've got time for one last ride..
So baby close your eyes..

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Summer End
Hot night, cool breeze, wind blowin' up off the beach
Toes buried in the warm white sand
You holdin' my hand
Talkin' bout nothing and everything at the same time
No moonlight, feels like a sign
Thinkin' 'bout leaning in
Lookin' at your red lips, sweet like the wine we've been sipping all night
We ain't gonna make it on the last ride home
But if you're fine, I'm fine...
We could talk all night

(CHORUS)
Please don't let the summer end
Come September you'll be gone again
Let the world stop spinning, let the moon drop out of the sky
Ain't willing to say goodbye, and can't pretend
That I don't love you girl
Please don't let the summer end

We ain't been talkin' like this for long
But the last week of summer
It's all about holding on to something, holding on to someone
I'm holding on to anything to keep you by my side
Just to keep me in your mind
Just one more minute on a wild summer love ride
Just a little more time

(CHORUS)

You and me girl underneath the stars
Leave tomorrow for tomorrow cuz tonight's all ours
All good times, no goodbyes
Just you and me, kissin' on.

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Better than Me
What a thrill
To see you lookin' like he's loving you right
Sweet relief
I can shake his hand and not try to fight
Cuz any man that makes you smile like that deserves all of the loving he gets
And a girl with a heart like yours deserves the best

Do what makes you happy
And love who sets you free
Is what I'd say to you if I was better than me.

(CHORUS)
But I'm not strong enough for cryin'
Mourning, moving on
Not man enough to come to terms that you up and gone
So I'll just stand here lying to myself, and trying to be
The man that you'd still love if I was better than me.

I don't mind
This sleeping in an empty bed
Learning to love myself
Yeah, I listened to what you said
And my head's a whole lot clearer without the smoking and the booze
I sure ain't sitting around here singing the blues

Spread your wings and fly
Set your sails out on the sea
Is what I'd say to you if I was better than me.

(CHORUS)

I don't need your love
I don't miss your kiss
I don't think about you often, just a little bit
And I ain't gonna hang on to this heartache
And I ain't gonna take it to my grave
Is what I'd say to you
Is what I'd say to you
Is what I'd say to you

(CHORUS)
