Patty Loveless

A Thousand Times A Day – Patty Loveless

I gave up cigarettes
I haven’t had to light one yet
And it’s been a year since I stopped
The same goes for alcohol
I don’t touch the stuff at all
And I used to drink till I dropped
Those were tough, this is easy
And it feels so good to say
Forgetting you is not that hard to do
I’ve done it a thousand times a day

Friends said it’d take some time
To get you off my mind
They thought I’d never let you go
Well, I guess I proved them wrong
One more bad habit gone
Just like the whiskey and the smokes
Those were tough, this is easy
Well, I’m all right, yeah, I’m okay
Forgetting you is not that hard to do
I’ve done it a thousand times a day

I’ve given you up for good
Just like I said I would
The night you walked away
Forgetting you is not that hard to do
I’ve done it a thousand times a day
Yes, I’ve done it a thousand times a day

A Little On The Lonely Side – Patty Loveless

You ask me how I’m doin’ since you left
I can’t lie, sometimes I’m beside myself
And the way I feel is to hard to hide
A little on the lonely side

Do you really want to know
What I’ve been through
Let me just say I’m still wrapped up in you
And the broken heart keeps me alive
A little on the lonely side

I’m a little on the lonely side
Where only the strong survive
And I’m barely gettin’ by
A little on the lonely side

Some days I spend all my nights on memories
Goin’ through what’s left of what used to be
And the nights get longer all the time
A little on the lonely side

I’m a little on the lonely side
Where only the strong survive
And I’m barely gettin’ by
A little on the lonely side

I’m a little on the lonely side
Where only the strong survive
And I’m barely gettin’ by
A little on the lonely side

A Little Bit In Love – Patty Loveless

I don’t fall in love as a rule
It always made me look like a fool
‘Cause it keeps me up late
I can’t concentrate
And I pride myself on keeping my cool
But I’ve got to admit
That I’m a little bit in love with you

Now I don’t want you gettin’ me wrong
Because I don’t sit up at night by the phone
But then you come around
I let my guard down
And I can’t seem to leave you alone
But I’ll get over it
I’m just a little bit in love with you

Well I tell myself that alittle bit of love
Can’t hurt a big girl like me
But I never have heard
Of a little heartache
And baby that’s what’s scarin’ me

So don’t you get your hopes up
If I call
Because I always catch myself
When I fall
But I’ve got to admit
That I’m a little bit in love with you

So don’t you get your hopes up
If I call
Because I always catch myself
When I fall
But I’ve got to admit
That I’m a little bit in love with you

Yes, I’ve got to admit
That I’m a little bit in love with you
But that’s all you get
I’m just a little bit in love with you

A Handful Of Dust – Patty Loveless

Break us down by our elements
And you might think He failed
We’re not copper for one penny or
Even iron for one nail
And a dollar would be plenty
to buy twenty of us
Until true love is added to
These handfuls of dust

Handful of dust, handful of dust
Sums up the richest and poorest of us
True love makes priceless the worthless
Whenever it’s added to a handful of dust

However small though our worth may be
When shared between two hearts
Is even more than it would ever be
Measured on its own, apart
And our half what it could be
Is now twice what it was
When true love is added to
These handfuls of dust

Handful of dust, handful of dust
Sums up the richest and poorest of us
True love makes priceless the worthless
Whenever it’s added to a handful of dust

Handful of dust, handful of dust
Sums up the richest and poorest of us
True love makes priceless the worthless
Whenever it’s added to a handful of dust

O Little Town Of Bethlehem – Patty Loveless

(Traditional) Arranged by Emory Gordy, Jr.

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

For Christ is born of Mary,
And gathered all above,
While mortlas sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth.

How silently, how silently,
The wondrous gift is giv’n!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heav’n.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him, still
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem!
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Immanuel.

I Already Miss You (Like You’re Already Gone) – Patty Loveless

Oh friend the hour is near
You must go
And I’ll be here to face
An empty life on my own
I can’t hide it when I’m sad
After all the joy we’ve had
I already miss you
Like you’re already gone

If you could rock my heart to sleep
With your breath upon my cheek
I could dream, you’d be returning
With the dawn
But when I face reality
Hands of time, hands of time
Don’t turn for me
I already miss you
Like you’re already gone

I already suffer with this pain in my heart
When I stare out my window
My whole world’s turning dark
In the time that remains
I will try to be strong
But I already miss you
Like you’re already gone

I already suffer with this pain in my heart
When I stare out my window
My whole world’s turning dark
In the time that remains
I will try to be strong
But I already miss you
Like you’re already gone

I already miss you
Like you’re already gone

Halfway Down – Patty Loveless

Raindrops on the treetops
Waiting there to fall
I know how they’re feeling
But I’m only, yes I’m only, halfway down

Fighting with the devil
Harder all the time
Sinkin’ to his level
But I’m only, yes I’m only, halfway down

Halfway down, just a getting started
Yes I’m beginning on my journey now
But I’ve only gotten halfway down
Halfway down, just a little bit farther
Well I believe you better catch me now
‘Cause I’m only going halfway down

Sippin’ shallow water
Sharks out for the kill
Almost hittin’ bottom
But I’m only, yes I’m only, halfway down

Halfway down, just a getting started
Yes I’m beginning on my journey now
But I’ve only gotten halfway down
Halfway down, just a little bit farther
Well I believe you better catch me now
‘Cause I’m only going halfway down
Yeah I hope you better catch me now
‘Cause I’m only going halfway down
Yes I’m only going halfway down
Yes I’m only going halfway down

Half Over You – Patty Loveless

I’ve seen rock bottom
And I’ve sailed to the top
Now I’m somewhere in between
Believe that it’s over
But sometimes still blue
There’s no place so lonely
As bein’ half over you

And I don’t feel much like climbin’
And I don’t want to fall
Here in the middle I don’t feel much at all
I’ve almost excepted the fact that we’re through
And there’s no place so lonely
As being half over you

I wasn’t as bad off
When first you were gone
Misery kept me company
Then I remember the heights
We’ve been to
There’s no place so lonely
As being half over you

And I don’t feel much like climbin’
And I don’t want to fall
Here in the middle I don’t feel much at all
I’ve almost excepted the fact that we’re through
And there’s no place so lonely
As being half over you

There’s no place so lonely
As being half over you…
