Ain't Over Yet

“Ain’t Over Yet”

By: Steve Everett


Verse 1

I know it’s not a plan if I just ask you for your hand

But there’s no guarantee this story even has an end

I know I don’t have money and I seem off track

But if you can be June Carter, I’ll be Johnny Cash



Then I could move your hips with mine

And tell you everything was fine



Cause it ain’t over yet

I know it’s messy but oh

This ain’t the way things end

I’ve spent the last three nights

Just drinking in my bed

And pouring over all those letters that you sent

Before I had to go and mess things up again


Verse 2

It wasn’t right to treat you like you weren’t made of gold

Or make you pay for every little lie I ever told

I know I’m out here begging for a second, second chance

But if it makes things better baby what’s the difference



This isn’t fair to you, I know that’s true and I hate it

But if we can just get through all the things I do I could change it

Need To Know

“Need To Know”

By: Steve Everett


Verse 1

6 dresses on your bedroom floor

6 never made it out the door

But then you poured yourself in 7

And you knew you’d be the center of attention

And you say kiss me, touch me

Just won’t leave me alone

You’re getting’ closer to me

You’re pullin’ at my clothes



I don’t need to know your name

I can see it in your eyes that you love to play games

Cause I can feel your hand on the back of my neck

Workin’ down to my chest and it’s makin’ me sweat

But you’re waitin’ on your boyfriend to come back

I don’t need to know your name if I can’t use oh

If I can’t use it, If I can’t use it


Verse 2

6 minutes we were out on the floor

In 6 minutes, had me wantin’ 6 more

Oh I never got to 7

But I know that you were lovin’ the attention

Then you kissed me, touched me

And said you had to go

You said you hated to leave

You wanted so much more



I’d like to think that I would know much better

That if you called me I would leave you be

But something tells me that it would not matter

I only melt in heat

West Coast Time

“West Coast Time”

By: Steve Everett


Verse 1

It’s an awful lot like crazy

The way you shake me with a kiss

And no matter my intention

You always make some time for it


Pre Chorus

And though we live in Carolina

We’re in a different state of mind

We never worry bout the morning

We like the afternoon just fine



You and I we live on west coast time

From the left-hand side of my bed

I’m inclined to lie awake all night

With my heart underneath your head


Verse 2

You always give me the attention

I never got from other eyes

You’re never quick to point a finger

And no one else can change your mind



We got a lot to live for

We got a lot to say

We do our thinking in the evening

And all our sleeping in the day
