    Favorite Lyrics from Storyteller

    What are your favorite lyrics from the album now that you've had a month to pick out your favorites?
    Maybe multiples from several tracks?

    Mine: "Life has a way of showing you just what you need, and who you were made to be"

    I'll just list my favorite lyrics from each song lol.


    With her long hair flying across the desert dirt

    Let me tell you, boy, you're never gonna catch her

    All those midnights sneaking in

    "I'm late again, oh, I'm so sorry"
    All the Ajax in the world ain't gonna clean your dirty laundry

    Jenny slipped something in his Tennessee whiskey

    No law man was ever gonna find
    And how he died is still a mystery
    But he hit a woman for the very last time

    I love the way you look in a firefly glow

    Saying everything without making a sound, a cricket choir in the background, underneath a harvest moon
    Standing on your shoes in my bare feet, dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat

    I don't drink

    But sometimes I need a stiff drink
    Sipping from a highball glass
    Let the world fade away

    But there's no body, there's no witness

    So y'all go mind your business
    It's a Choctaw County affair

    Put on those records that drive me crazy

    You look so good in this light
    Oh yeah, you look like nothing but mine

    It's the rush of the fall, not the land
    It's the catch her if you can, catch her, catch her if you can

    One or two little sips
    I'm all right, I can quit
    You're just some wine that I'm tasting

    Always hanging on the wall

    No, it don't care at all
    It won't slow down; it won't wait
    The clock don't stop ticking away

    All I want more than anything

    Is to make you proud of me

    Take the gun, hide the car and the money

    I'll meet you in Mexico

    In the quiet, in the dark

    You're stealing every bit of my heart with your daddy's eyes
    What a sweet surprise
    And now I'm holding what I never knew I always wanted

    Yeah, it's all gonna fly in the blink of an eye

    You can't slow down this thing called life

    Ill just post favorite lyrics off of each song

    Renegade Runaway

    She's a devil in a satin dress
    You don't even know her hair trigger's aimin' right at your chest
    Young gunslinger makin' new amends

    Dirty Laundry

    Now I'ma have to hang you out to dry, dry, dry
    Clothespin all your secrets to the line, line, line
    Leave 'em blowing in the wind, just say goodbye to you
    All those midnights sneaking in
    I'm late again, oh, I'm so sorry
    All the Ajax in the world ain't gonna clean your dirty laundry
    If the neighbors get to asking, I won't cover nothin' up
    I'll tell 'em every little detail, how you drug me through the mud
    I'm gonna string up your old button-down and slide it on the porch
    Just in case you get the nerve to come knockin' on my door
    I'm gonna string up your old button-down and slide it on the porch
    Just in case you get the nerve to come knockin' on my door

    Church Bells

    Jenny grew up wild, like a blackfoot daisy
    Out in the shack with a blue tick hound
    Broke as hell, but blessed with beauty
    The kind that a rich man can't turn down
    It was all roses, dripping in diamonds
    Sipping on champagne
    She was all uptown, wearing that white gown'
    Taking his last name
    And all his money could never save Jenny
    From the devil living in his eyes
    It was all bruises, covered in makeup
    Dark sunglasses
    And that next morning, sitting in the back pew
    Praying with the Baptist

    Heartbeat

    Red wine, good times, no I don't mind being with everyone else
    And then there's nights like tonight that I, I want you to myself
    And tonight I wanna drive so far we'll only find static on the radio
    You pull me closer, my head on your shoulder, baby we won't beat the song

    Smoke Break

    She's a small-town, hard-working woman just trying to make a living
    Working three jobs, feeding four little mouths in a run-down kitchen
    When you never taking nothing and doing nothing but giving
    It's hard to be a good wife and a good mom and a good Christian
    But sometimes I wanna pop that top
    Take a swig and make the world stop
    And watch it fade away

    Choctaw County Affair

    Well, life's been kind of trippy down here in Mississippi
    Since Cassie O'Grady disappeared
    And me and my Bob Shaver been in all the newspapers
    But the truth remains a mystery and now it's ancient history
    It's a Choctaw County affair
    Well, Cassie O'Grady was no Southern lady
    They all loved to make her out like a sweet little devout
    All-American cheerleader type
    But her mind was cattywampus
    She was a cold gold-digger tickling a hand trigger
    Now it's best to remember Bobby Shaver's got a temper
    Like a buck-shot grizzly bear
    And that fancy D.A. from down Jackson way
    Said he'd see us in the electric chair, ha
    But the foreman of the jury told me "honey, don't you worry"
    It's a Choctaw county affair, yeah

    Like I'll Never Love You Again

    Let's make this night last forever
    Like honey dripping sweet and slow
    Every kiss just tasting better
    Every touch, every whisper, let go
    I wanna love you like the rain on a roof
    Stronger than a bottle of 110 proof

    Chaser

    Yeah, boy, you're nothing but a chaser
    You're looking at me and thinking of her
    And it cuts me like a razor
    And you ain't doing me any kind of favors
    Sticking around this one-horse town tonight
    You can follow her tracks; you can try to win her back
    Put the miles on your tires til you run out of gas
    I'm done letting you be my heartbreaker
    So go ahead and chase her

    Relapse

    Let's just hide out under the covers
    One more secret between two old lovers
    What can it hurt?
    I ain't hung up on you
    I ain't in love with you
    This is just time that I'm wasting
    One or two little sips
    I'm alright, I can quit
    You're just some wine that I'm tasting

    Clock Don't Stop

    Red dress, spilled wine
    Caught in a stupid fight
    He's wrong, she's right
    (No kiss goodnight)
    Act like I'm not home
    Can't hear the tears cry

    The Girl You Think I Am

    Eight years old wearing angel wings
    Yeah, and to this day, that's what you see
    I got my flaws and I've got regrets
    And I know there's more on the road ahead
    When I wonder if I'll ever measure up
    Oh, I thank God for a father's love

    Mexico

    Run, run, your own direction
    And I'll lead 'em down a different road
    Take the gun, hide the car and the money
    I'll meet you in Mexico

    What I Never Knew I Always Wanted

    Thought I was happy on my own
    'Til you came and proved me wrong
    finally found what I never knew I always wanted
    I couldn't see; I was blind 'til my eyes were opened
    I didn't know there was a hole
    Something missing in my soul
    'Til you filled it up with your love, yeah

    Little Girl Dont Grow Up Too Fast

    Little princess, summer flowers in her hair
    Playing Ring Around The Rosie in a picture there
    Tiptoeing 'round the house in her mama's shoes
    Coloring her lips red in her bedroom
    Little girl, little girl, don't grow up too fast
    'Fore you know it, you'll be wishing you could just go back

    She's a sure-shot, knock the ash off a smokin' cigarette

    That lipstick on your collar, well it ain't my shade of pink
    And I can tell by the smell of that perfume it's like forty dollars too cheap

    Everyone thought they were Ken and Barbie
    But Ken was always getting way too drunk
    Saturday night after a few too many
    He came home, ready to fight
    And all his money could never save Jenny
    From the devil living in his eyes

    We'll make a falling star wish
    One more slow kiss
    What are we waiting on?

    When you're never takin' nothing, and doin' nothing but givin'
    It's hard to be a good wife and a good mom and a good Christian

    Now Cassie O'Grady was no Southern lady
    Despite all the media hype
    They all loved to make her out like a sweet little devout
    All American cheerleader type
    But her mind was cattywampus
    She was greedy, she was pompous
    Struttin' round with her nose in the air
    ...
    Well I do not deny
    I wished Cassie would die
    When she threatened us with blackmail

    Pull up a comfortable chair, baby
    And put on those records that drive me crazy
    You look so good in this light
    Yeah, you look like nothing but mine

    It's the thrill, it's the hunt, it's the love of the game
    It's the get what you want and then you throw it away
    It's the rush of the fall, not the land
    It's the catch her if you can, catch her, catch her if you can

    If anyone asks, you never saw me
    And I know you know better than to call me
    Let's just hide out under the covers
    One more secret between two old lovers
    What can it hurt?
    ...
    I can quit when I'm ready
    I ain't hurting nobody but me

    You're not a setting sun
    You ain't even close to done
    Run, baby, run, run

    You think I'm brave
    You think I'm beautiful
    You think that I can do the impossible
    You always see the best in me when I can't
    I wanna be the girl you think I am

    Every lyric in Mexico is wonderful <3

    ...and I don't know all the words to WINKIAW lol.

    This seems like a fun game and I'm on lunch, so why not! Sometimes it's hard to tell if these are my favorite lyrics because of the actual words or because of the way she sings them, lol.

    Renegade Runaway - "Looks like an angel, so picturesque, like she walked right out of the Wild Wild West"

    Dirty Laundry - "Well, you drink beery and whiskey, boy, and you know I don't drink red"; "Found it over in the corner, wadded up on the bedroom floor, you shoulda hid it in the closet, you shoulda burned it, you shoulda lost it"; "Leave 'em blowin' in the wind to say goodbye to you"

    Church Bells - The whole first verse "Jenny grew up wild like a blackfoot daisy, out in a shack with a blue tick hound, broke as hell, but blessed with beauty - the kind that a rich man can't turn down...she had the looks, he had the mansion, you can figure out the rest" into the "it was all roses, dripping in diamonds, sipping on champagne. She was all uptown, wearing that white gown, taking his last name"

    Heartbeat - "Tonight I wanna drive so far we'll only find static on the radio. We can't see those city lights and I love the way you look in a firefly glow. Saying everything without making a sound, a cricket choir (river rolling) in the background"

    Smoke Break - "Sipping from a high ball glass, let the world fade away"; "First generation to go to college instead of driving a tractor, Never had nothing handed to him on a silver platter"; "So here's to you and here's to when the day gets long. Go ahead, I understand if you wanna take a load off"; then finally because my family picture made the lyric video on this part "When the work's all done", but I like the whole bridge

    Choctaw County Affair - Second verse "Well, Cassie O'Grady was no Southern lady, despite all the media hype. They all loved to make her out like a sweet little devout, All-American cheerleader type. But her mind was cattywampus, she was greedy, she was pompous, Struttin' round with her nose in the air. She was a cold gold-digger, tickling a hair trigger"; and I LOVE the first line of the last verse because of how she sings it "Well, the press went wild on the day of the trial"

    LINLYA - "We haven't even started the good stuff yet. It's ok, we've got plenty of time"; "Every kiss just tasting better, every touch, every whisper, let go"; "I'm gonna slow it all down and then take you from zero to ten"; "I wanna love you like the rain on the roof, stronger than a bottle of 110 proof. I wanna take love to places that love has never been"

    Chaser - First verse "I need something strong tonight. I'm needing me a 100 proof. Something to erase my mind. Rid me of the thought of you"; "You'll be looking for me when you change your mind"; then the killer bridge "It's the thrill, it's the hunt, it's the love of the game. It's the get what you want and then you throw it away. It's the rush of the fall, not the land, it's the catch her if you can, catch her, catch her if you can"

    Relapse - "Oh it's just me, falling off of the wagon. What can it hurt"; "I ain't hung up on you, I ain't in love with you, this is just time that I'm wasting. One or two little sips, I'm all right, I can quit. Your just some wine that I'm tasting"

    Clock Don't Stop - "Red dress, spilled wine, caught in a stupid fight, I'm wrong, you're right, Kiss me Goodnight"

    The Girl You Think I Am - "Eight years old wearing angel wings. Yeah and to this day, that's what you see"; "I've been daddy's little girl since my first cry"; "When I wonder if I'll ever measure up, I thank God for a father's love"; "All I want more than anything, is to make you proud of me" (This song makes me tear up every freaking time I hear it)

    Mexico - "If they get the cuffs on us, it's 25 to life"; "Blonde had a little too much fun, I'll be brunette"; "Suntan, seaside, feeling that breeze blow, We'll be sipping that smooth Don Julio"

    What I Never Knew I Always Wanted - "Never pictured myself singing lullabies, sitting in a rocking chair in the middle of the night. In the quiet, in the dark, You're stealing every bit of my heart with your Daddy's eyes."

    Renegade Runaway - "She's a sure shot, knock the ash off a Smokin' cigarette."

    Dirty Laundry - "And there's a little wine stain on the pocket of your white cotton thread. Well, you drink beer and whiskey, boy, and you know I don't drink red."

    Church Bells- "She was all uptown, wearin' that white gown, takin' his last name." / "And that next mornin' sittin' in the back pew, prayin' with the Baptists."

    Heartbeat - "I love the way you look in a firefly glow."

    Smoke Break - "It's hard to be a good wife, and a good mom, and a good Christian."

    Choctaw County Affair - (TBH I could put most of the song here, but I'll go with "Cassie O'Grady was no southern lady, despite all the media hype. They all love to make her out like a sweet, little devout all-American cheerleader type. But her mind was cattywampus, she was greedy, she was pompous, strut tin' round with her nose in the air." / "Well, I do not deny I wished Cassie would die when she threatened us with black mail." / "They thought we'd turn on each other but soon they all discovered we would live or die hand in hand."

    Like I'll Never Love You Again - "You look so good in this light, oh yeah, you look like nothin' but mine."

    Chaser - "It's the rush of the fall, not the land."

    Relapse - ""I ain't hung up on you, I ain't in love with you, this is just time that I'm wastin'."

    Clock Don't Stop - "Can't hear the tears cry on the other end of the line."

    The Girl You Think I Am - "All I want more than anything is to make you proud of me."

    Mexico - "Look for the golden sombrero, Puerto Nuevo west."

    What I Never Knew I Always Wanted - "You're stealin' every bit of my heart with your daddy's eyes."

    Little Girl Don't Grow Up Too Fast - "Cause it's hard to know just what to do, when I still feel like a child in my mama's shoes." (To be honest I have never related to a Carrie line more.)

    You think I'm strong, you think I'm fearless
    Even when I'm, I'm at my weakest
    You always see the best in me when I can't
    I wanna be the girl you think I am

    I got my flaws and I've got regrets
    And I know there's more on the road ahead
    When I wonder if I'll ever measure up
    Oh, I thank God for a father's love

    maybe my favorite line on the entire album:

    Daddy said you're gonna take the world by storm / Mama said he cried the whole way home

    What a great lyric. The kind of lyric that tells the entire story in 2 lines!

    another classic Carrie; pure and honest in its simplicity.......

    "didn't know there was a hole. Something missing in my soul, till you filled it up with your love......."

    I get emotional just writing it down......

    Oh this is easy. My favorite lyrics from Storyteller are:

    "Jenny slipped something in his Tennessee whisky no law man was ever gonna find, and how he died is still a mystery, but he hit a woman for the very last time..."

    Having three girls that song is one of my favorites on the album.

    My oldest told me that could be the song she uses for the father/daughter dance when she gets married and I told her that it could be if I ever let her get married.

    One of my favorite lyrics is from Relapse: I ain't hung up on you/I ain't in love with you/This is just time that I'm wasting/One or two little sips I'm alright, I can quit/You're just some wine that I'm tasting

    When I first heard the song I thought the lyric was "someone that I'm tasting." I wonder if they used the word wine intentionally knowing it sounded like someone.

    Although it may sound weird to "taste" someone, it is entirely possible that the writers liked that it "almost" sounds like that. Besides, one of my favorite songs ever DOES use that lyric. Staind, "It's Been Awhile" uses the line "it's been a while, but I can still remember just the way you taste".

    I thought it was "someone" for a long time (like a month or two) and I still sing it that way cause I like it better.

    TGYTIA is getting a lot of "views" on VEVO. I think it could be a hit for Carrie.

    Too funny! Those father/daughter dances at weddings always make me tear up. With those lyrics, I'd be crying!

    My favorite lyrics as a standout alone are-

    "It's the thrill, it's the hunt, it's the love of the game. it's the get what you want and then you throw it away. It's the rush of the fall, not the land. It's the catch her if you can, catch her, catch her if you can"

    All of CCA 🙃

    "All I want more than anything, is to make you proud of me."

    "You believe in me, yeah, you're my biggest fan, I wanna be the girl you think I am"

    "In the quiet in the dark, you're stealing every bit of my heart. With your daddy's eyes, what a sweet surprise"

    Jenny slipped something in his Tennessee whiskey, no law man was ever gonna find.
    And how he died is still a mystery.
    But he hit a woman for the very last time.
