Drew Womack Song Lyrics

Any love at all

Fastest way to Texas

Fine art of failure

Hey Daisy

Leaving October

Melancholy Cafe

Premium Gasoline

Tearin' it up tonight

That's just me

Devil's been working overtime

To her and back

Waiting on a bullet

Any love at all

Baby we need a little time alone

No outside distractions
let's unplug the phone

We need a secret rendezvous

Where I can get to know you

And you can get to know me all over again


If there's any love at all we'll find it

Throw out everything that hides it

We both know a place to lay our hearts bare

If there's any love at all let's save it

Remember every kiss that made it

'cause the love we share is not
just any love at all


The cool of the evening keeps telling me

To lay down beside you, you're all I need

For one precious moment

Heartfelt and heaven sent

Binds us together eternally


If there's any love at all we'll find it

Throw out everything that hides it

We both know a place to lay our hearts bare

If there's any love at all let's save it

Remember every kiss that made it

'cause the love we share is not just
any love at all

Not just any love at all


For one precious moment

Heartfelt and heaven sent

Binds us together eternally


If there's any love at all we'll find it

Throw out everything that hides

We both know a place to lay our hearts bare

If there's any love at all let's save it

Remember every kiss that made it

'cause the love we share is not just
any love at all

It's not just any love at all

Not just any love at all

Fastest way to Texas

She was still in Ontario when
I headed down Thunder Bay

I stopped off for gas in St. Paul
and it got me through all of IA

Yeah, she really made me mad this time
and I had to get away

So I was Texas bound just like that,
and Texas I'd stay


In a Kansas City bar off of I-35

I stopped off for directions to make up
for lost time

Said I was looking for the fastest way
to Texas tonight


A man on a stool by himself started
giving me advice

He said, I know the shortcuts, cause that interstate,
it messed up my life.

It was San Antonio, it was the middle
of the night

She knew I was all wrong, but she didn't
want to fight

So I jumped in my car and I drove out
of her sight


The way I get back is, son, I...


Walk up, sit down and buy myself
a double, then

The whole time I'm there, that's
when I crumble

And it's whiskey, not the highway,
that drives me to tears

And that's the fastest way to Texas from here

The fastest way to Texas from here


He went on to tell me all the things along
the way that remind him of her

That's why he won't go back the same way
cause of how much it hurts

He said, light conversation can lead anywhere

From football to baseball to how life
just ain't fair

But in this part of this bar we don't
like to go there


But if you really want to know I just...


Walk up, sit down and buy myself
a double, then

The whole time I'm there, that's
when I crumble

And it's whiskey, not the highway,
that drives me to tears

And that's the fastest way to Texas from here

The fastest way to Texas from here


Well, it's my way

Or the highway...


(Solos)


Well, he stumbled his way through his life,
through the pain and regret

He said, take a look at that old car outside,
cause it's all I have left

And let me say one last thing,
before you hit the road

And buy you a round, propose a toast

To the one man in this bar who knows
who I hurt the most


And I guess I got it then cause I just...


Walked up, sit down and bought us both
a double, then

The whole time we were there,
that's when I crumble

And it's whiskey, not the highway,
that drives me to tears

And that's the fastest way to Texas from here

The fastest way to Texas from here

The fastest way to Texas from here, yes it is

Yes it is, baby...


She was still in Ontario and I headed up
Thunder Bay...

Fine art of failure

Kickin' back in local time

Got the wheels off the trailer 'cause
it's finally mine

Wire coat hanger on the TV set

Stacked up on the other 'cause it's almost dead


Dead broke, no job, no joke

No drive, no wheels, no smokes


My old lady found a better life

Packed up, shipped out, she's someone
else's wife

He's an old ditch digger for the county morgue

And he's pushing amphetamines on the side


All cash, no tax, no couth

Beer gut, no hair, one tooth


The fine art of failure, it ain't just a choice to

Carvin' out a place at rock bottom is a
creative way to lose


I was watchin' Judge Judy just the other day

A lawyer came on, said someone else should pay

Yeah, someone is responsible for my big ass

Now Burger King is paying me a load of cash


New car, new shoes, new vest

Double wide, new suit, who's next


The fine art of failure, it ain't just a
choice to choose

Carving out a place at rock bottom is a
creative way to lose


The fine art of failure, it ain't just
buying cheap booze

Drinking it up first thing in the morning
is a creative way to lose

Hey Daisy

There ain't too much to this small-town scene

Timing every traffic light's a driver's dream

Outsiders say we're too far from everything

The interstate it has a distant view

Flyin so fast they just drive right through

Yeah it's miles from a first run movie but
it's close to you

So give 'em all time

They'll see the sign

And stop and listen for the little bell a-ringin

From the catfish jumpin on the end of that line


You and me could get a good crop growin

Find an acre and a half worth holdin

Hey Daisy, I thought maybe

We could spend the afternoon mellowin'

Wet our feet in the Concho River

I'll make you sweat until I make you shiver

Hey Daisy, I thought maybe

I could talk you into lovin me


Lookin back to when you caught my eye

All the way from second grade to my surprise

You swore someday you'd leave this
small town life

But dreams change and baby roots grow strong

And when we get the chance to move along

We find that urge for leavin is long gone

So give us all time

We'll see the light

And stop and listen for the white
wings a-whistlin

Till they light in Mesquite right
in front of our eyes


You and me could get a good crop growin

Find an acre and a half worth holdin

Hey Daisy, I thought maybe

We could spend the afternoon mellowin'

Wet our feet in the Concho River

I'll make you sweat until I make you shiver

Hey Daisy, I thought maybe


Hey Daisy maybe we could

Wet our feet in the Concho River

I'll make you sweat until I make you shiver

Hey Daisy, I thought maybe

I could love you into lovin me


Hey Daisy, I thought maybe, yeah

Leaving October

The autumn leaves they rush outside
my window

Like they've got something so important
they must do

Sara will be home now any minute

She likes her third grade class and looks
so much like you


I struck a match to light the furnace
in the hallway

I could smell the summer dust burning
in the vent

It's just another thing that brings your
memory back to me

I think that Sara knows I'm trouble by
that scent

She reads my mind


I'm just fine 'til the end of September

Then I remember losing you October '89

But if I live in the past there's no future

I'm looking forward to leaving OCtober behind


There's a girl I really like down at the office

Me and Sara asked her out for New Year's Eve

It made me cry when I told her all about us

But Sara says there's nothing wrong with me

It just takes time


I'm just fine 'til the end of September

Then I remember losing you October '89

But if I live in the past there's no future

I'm looking forward to leaving October behind


All things work for good

Has become my favorite verse

Sara told me that they would

But when the nights get cold

And the leaves turn rust and gold

That's when your memory hurts


I'm just fine 'til the end of September

Then I remember losing you October '89

But if I live in the past there's no future

I'm looking forward to leaving October behind

Melancholy Cafe

I'm the cafe down on Lonely and Main

My special is heartache and pain

You can order what you're longing for

But it always comes out the same


Party of one at a table for two

I'll seat you with the cold hard truth

It's a blackened night

But at least you'll get my window view


On the menu we have lost dreams

Wash it down with some half empty memories

Thinking this ain't how life's supposed to be


But here at the Melancholy Cafe

There's never room,
but I'll never turn you away

And you can feed that empty feeling inside

And feel as empty as when you first walked by

Yeah, we all come here to dine alone

But some of them sometimes, they come in

And they make themselves at home


Ruth comes by every Tuesday at eight

She has her reservations
but doesn't mind the wait

She'll hang around 'til closing time

Just thinking about what's on her plate


John he stops by every day for a while

He sits around and thinks about
his life as a child

He never seems to lose that Mona Lisa smile


Happy hour, what for?

It's loneliness that keeps them coming back
through my door

And they'll keep wanting more


But at the Melancholy Cafe

There's never room, but I'll never
turn you away

And you can feed that empty
feeling inside

And feel as empty as when you
first walked by

Yeah, we all come here to dine alone

But some of them sometimes,
they come in

And they make themselves at home


Yeah, sometimes we all just need to be alone

But some of them sometimes, they come in

And they make themselves at home


I'm the cafe down on Lonely and Main

My special is heartache and pain

You can order what you're longing for

Tearin' it up

I don't claim to see the future

But give me credit when it's due

I probably got what I deserved

But I didn't need to see the proof


I got off work a little early

I can tell that you're suprised

So is this man lyin' in my bed

I can see it in his eyes


What an awkward situation

The three of us in our bedroom

I'll just leave through our back door

'cause I ain't about to fight for


Don't bother waitin' up this evening

'cause I ain't coming home tonight

Somethin' about this place reminds me

Of how my life is one big lie

A goddamned lie


Well, I know it's just a piece of paper

And forever's just a long, long time

And they were just some vows

That we just wrote down

Swore we'd never cross that line

But I'm tearin' it up tonight


Gonna find an empty barstood

Make me a friend or two

Tell the barman to keep 'em comin'

'til I wash away the likes of you


Well, I know it's just a piece of paper

And forever's just a long, long time

And they were just some vows

That we just wrote down

Swore we'd never cross that line

But I'm tearin' it up tonight

Tearin' it up tonight


Well, I know it's just a piece of paper

And forever's just a long, long time

And they were just some vows

That we just wrote down

Swore we'd never cross that line

But I'm tearin' it up tonight

Tearin' it up tonight

Tearin' it up tonight

Tearin' it up tonight

I'm tearin' it up

I'm tearin' it up

That's just me

You got a lot of your mother's smile

You got a lot of your father's money

I'm just lucky I'm on your ride

I sit and watch you fly high above me

I'm a sucker for a good romance

I like battin' way out of my league

You were more than just a long shot chance

I asked anyway, but that's just me


You say you want love, you want magic

I'll find some way to turn my water into wine

If you need devotion, baby, I have it

I'll paint your world and keep on painting
outside the lines

And I mean anything you want in life

Beyond your wildest dreams

Oh, baby, I'll be anybody you need

'cause that's just me


You want somebody witha fancy car

I'll rub until I make that bucket of rust shine

A cowboy who'll hook your heart

I'll sadle up and go bait my troutline

A rocket man with a cool space suit
and weighted boots

Counting down to take you on a
trip to the moon

There's no place too far

Too far for you


But if you want love, you want magic

I'll find some way to turn my water into wine

If you need devotion, baby, I have it

I'll paint your world and keep on
painting outside the lines

And I mean anything you want in life

Beyond your wildest dreams

Oh, baby, I'll be anybody you need

'cause that's just me


And I mean everything you want in life

Beyond your wildest dreams

Baby, I'll be anybody you need

Devil's Working Overtime

You can't know how it feels

When everything worthwhile is gone
without a fight

And I pretend it's no big deal

Let her walk out, didn't stop her, didn't try


And I'm left to face what's real

But all the damage done caught up
with me tonight

Caught up with me tonight


And I can't go home

'cause this house is not my home
without my wife

And I hope she knows

I never meant for us to see this side of life

Or take her on this ride

But the devil he's been working overtime


I stare across the room

There sits the devil with a halfway broken seal

And he's been here all afternoon

Patiently watching me spinning my wheels


And I can't go home

'cause this house is not my home
without my wife

And I hope she knows

I never meant for us to see this side of life

Or take her on this ride

But the devil he's been working overtime


There's no reason now to hide

'cause no one ever gets inside

I can't do this on my own

But he stands between me and the telephone

Me and the telephone


And I can't go home

'cause this house is not my home
without my wife

And I hope she knows

I never meant for us to see this side of life

Or take her on this ride

But the devil's he's been working overtime

Back to Top

To her and back

She gets a reaction everywhere she goes

She's got an attraction and she already knows

She'll have be then hang me out to dry

Make me walk a thousand miles, but it's
worth the ride


I may look like I've been to her and back and
back again

I've been dragged through the love of a girl they
said I could never win

And I've denied I'm just some boy on the side,
now it's sinking in

Yeah, but I'm going back again


I take what I can get, and I get what I can

Every Tuesday afternoon, she knows I'm her man

No matter if I figured it out, I don't care

'cause I'm Mister Right right now


I may look like I've been to her
and back and back again

I've been dragged through the love of a girl
they said I could never win

And I've denied I'm just some boy on the side,
now it's sinking in

I may look like I've been to her
and back and back again

I've been dragged through the love of a girl
they said I could never win

And I've denied I'm just some boy on the side,
now it's sinking in

Waiting on a bullet

Sometimes a second lasts forever

Feels like a pendulum is just hangin'
there now

The last word you said floats like a feather

And all at once I realize I ain't
got a prayer now


Get down to it

Spare me the rest

Never mind the small talk

I know what's coming next


You got me waitin' on a bullet

Just like a bird on a wire

We both know the outcome

Now that the shot has been fired

And I know there's nothin' I can change

To change the way you feel

So I'm just waitin' on a bullet

And my time's standin' still


Is that what you call a fair warnin'

To wear you lipstick in a brighter shade now

When you put it on this morning

You loaded up that chamber with
the choice you made


Get down to it

Say it's for the best

Tell me that you're sorry

And get it off your chest


You've got me waitin' on a bullet

Just like a bird on a wire

We both know the outcome

Now that the shot has been fired

And I know there's nothin' I can change

To change the way you feel

I'm just waitin' on a bullet

And my time's standin' still


Your lips are a smokin' gun

And they're movin' in slow motion


Get down to it

Say you're movin' on

Get up and start walkin'

Get up and get gone


Can't take this waitin' on a bullet

Just like a bird on a wire

We both know the outcome

Now that the shot has been fired

And I know there's nothin' I can change

To change the way you feel

I'm just waitin' on a bullet

And my time's standin' still


I'm just Waitin' on a bullet

I'm just a bird on a wire

We both know the outcome

Now that the shot has been fired

And I know there's nothin' I can change

To change the way you feel

I'm just waitin' on a bullet

And my time's standin' still

And my time's standin' still


I'm just waitin' on a bullet

I'm just waitin' on a bullet
