"Be Still" as written by Matthew Gray Nelson and Gunnar Nelson....
After so many years tryin' to set it free
The pain seems to fade but it never leaves
The memories haunt me and I wish they'd let me be
I gambled on love and it tore me apart
Be still, be still, be still, my broken heart
Be still my heart!

I wasn't born wise but I learned this much
Though you took all I gave it was never enough
There was a time I'd have died for your soul, your strength, your touch
But I'll leave it behind, try to make a new start
Be still, be still, be still, my broken heart
Let the pain fade away

It was the heat of the moment in the heart of a dream
You lit fire to my soul and you said you'd never leave
It's tearin' me up, baby, where have you been?
Oh, please, oh please, oh please! Please just understand me
And what this nonsense means. Oh, yeah!

I gave up my dreams to let you inside
Boy, you sure took my momma's little boy for a ride
I'll never know how I coulda ben so blind

Well, I gambled on love and it tore me apart
Oh! Be still, be still, be still, my broken heart
Be still, be still, be still, my broken heart
Be still my heart! My broken heart
Let the pain fade away!
Just a small town floozy a 'name' a Backwater Lucy,
Drivin' me down and down and down and down (be still my heart) Oh Yeah!!
That's what I get for bein' lazy, woman's drivin' me crazy

Drivin' me down and down and down and down and down (be still my heart)
