Track Name: "Addicted To You"
ADDICTED TO YOU

You won't find me drinkin'
Hard liquor, or stinkin'
With cigarette holes in my clothes.
I don't like to gamble
So I buy Glen Campbell.
It's safer that way, heaven knows.
I don't do much eatin'
Or calorie cheatin'
So cheese cake and Twinkies won't do.
When I need to have it,
It must be a habit.
And I'm so addicted to you.

Addicted to you,
Addicted to you.

I don't fool with ladies
In bright red Mercedes,
Easy as Mrs. Smith's pies.
I don't buy subscriptions
For doctor's prescriptions
To keep me on Valium highs.
You never will see me
In front of the TV
With Monday Night Football in view.
I know it ain't moral
To go through withdrawal,
But I'm so addicted to you

Addicted to you,
Addicted to you.

Now when I'm much older,
My pulse beatin' slower,
And temperature startin' to fall.
There'll be no complainin'
The time I'm remainin'
Knowin' that we had it all.
And someday in heaven
I'll roll me a "seven"
And browse through a Playboy or two.
But not for a minute
Will my soul be in it.
I'll still be addicted to you.

Addicted to you,
Addicted to you,
Addicted to you.

Track Name: "Turnin' Blue"
TURNIN' BLUE

Lord knows, that my way of thinkin'
Is only done in black and white.
Sometimes, I see red from drinkin',
And that ain't a pretty sight.
Friends say I never turn yellow
By runnin' away from a fight.
That's why it's hard to understand it,
What's happened to me tonight.
I'm turnin' blue, turnin' blue,
Turnin' blue, turnin' blue,
Missin' you.

Each day, I look in the mirror
And wish I were still in the pink.
At night, when the silver moon's nearer,
I pour me some gold to drink.
The times I get green with envy,
Come and go quick as a wink.
That's why, while all my hope is fadin',
It's hard to say, but I think
I'm turnin' blue, turnin' blue,
Turnin' blue, turnin' blue,
Missin' you.

And when it's time,
I will pull down my shades of gray.
Then hold my breath for you
Another lonely day, lonely day.

(Instrumental Break)

And when it's time,
I will pull down my shades of gray.
Then hold my breath for you
Another lonely day, lonely day.

Turnin' blue, turning blue,
Turnin' blue, turnin' blue,
I'm turnin' blue, turnin' blue,
Without you.

Track Name: "Out Of The Blue"
OUT OF THE BLUE

A cold wind
Was blowin' in my life.
It'd begin
Each morning
And howl late at night.
I was shakin'
My heart breakin'
In two.
Then you came from nowhere,
And I came out of the blue.

Like the streams
Whose waters have run dry.
I had dreams
That crumbled
Without knowin' why.
I'd forsaken
Thoughts on makin'
It through.
Then you came from nowhere,
And I came out of the blue.

Out of the blue
The darkest shades
Of blue and gray
Changed hues...
Out of the Blue.

Now a rose
Is growing in our lives.
Heaven knows
The color,
It's gold in my eyes.
When we awakened,
There's no mistakin'
It grew,
Since you came from nowhere,
And I came out of the blue.
Since you came from nowhere,
And I came out of the blue.
