You can listen to Taylor Hicks new album here http://kids.aol.com/KOL/2/Music/article/taylor-hicks-the-distance

below are lyrics to a few of the songs


The Distance

I saw an old friend yesterday
Guess we both had too much to say
Seems we’ve taken different sides
All caught up in politics and pride

If we can get beyond the blame
I know we’d see we’re still the same
The Distance between us will fade
They’ll be no distance between us someday

In that distant land across the sea
They are people just like you and me
They just want to see their children grow
And feel the same love we all know

When we get beyond all the hurt and blame
And realize we’re all the same
The distance between us will fade
They’ll be no distance between us someday

We can rise up toward each other
We can build a bridge brother to brother
Take the steps….. we need to take
To get us to a better place
Where the distance between us fades away
They’ll be no distance between us one of these days
One of these days

We can rise up towards each other
We can build a bridge brother to brother
Take the steps we need to take
To get is to a better place
Where the distance between us fades away
They’ll be no distance between us one of these days

One of the these days
We can rise up towards each other
We can build a bridge brother to brother
No distance.. between us one of these days




New Found Freedom

New found Freedom…. I’m leaving the past behind
New found Freedom…. Making up for lost time
Dug a little deeper…… Moved it on down the line
Musta been sleepin…. It’s about time I opened my eyes

When I walk….. I walk with confidence
I hold my head up high
When I talk I’ve got a positive since of who I am inside
New found freedom whoa ho oh Let the light be my life
New found freedom whoa ho oh Gonna spread my wings and fly

It’s no secret where I’ve been before
Turned that corner… standing at the front door
Startin down a new road…. Leaving the other side
Gonna release it…. Breaking away the ties that bind

(When I walk) I walk with confidence…I hold my head up high
(When I talk) I’ve got a positive since of who I am inside
New found freedom whoa ho ohh Let the light be my life
New found freedom whoa ho ohh Gonna spread my wings and fly
When the earth shook that’s all it took to make a change in me

It’s a new way a new day…things aint what they use to be
New found freedom…New.. Found.. freedom Let the light be my life
New found freedom New.. Found… Freedom gonna spread my wings and fly

When the earth shook it’s all it took to make a change in me
It’s a new way a new day…things aint what they use to be
New found freedom…New.. Found.. freedom Let the light be my life
New found freedom New.. Found… Freedom gonna spread my wings and fly
New found freedom new..found..freedom let the light be my life
New found freedom new..found.. freedom gonna spread my wings and fly
Freedom freedom let the light be my life
New found freedom whoo ho oh New found freedom gonna spread my wings and fly
Freedom freedom let the light be my life
New found freedom gonna spread my wings and fly
Freedom freedom standing at the front door New found freedom gonna spread my wings and fly
Spread my wings and fly
(music Stops)
HUMMMMMMMMMM





Maybe You Should

I look around this room’
And feel the pull of tender years
Before we knew enough
To be afraid of all our fears

Baby there was no corner
We couldn’t fight out way out of
And every thought of leaving left us leaning on this love
We had it all you know, before you started letting go
If you can walk away tonight, give it up for good, throw it all away, like we swore we never would

If you can tear down everything we built, deny everything we felt, I guess there’s a lot
That I misunderstood
If you can leave here tonight
Baby maybe you should

Baby I just keep on seeing all that moonlight shining down
The way our love could light up this little Alabama town
So I keep holding on to hope
Still finding reasons to believe
Cause all I ever got from you, was always just enough for me

But if it’s not for you, do what you’ve got to do
If you can walk away tonight, give it up for good, throw it all away like we swore we never would
If you can tear down everything we built, deny everything we felt
I guess there’s a lot that I misunderstood
If you can leave here tonight, baby maybe you should
If you can leave here tonight, baby maybe you should
Maybe you should



Keeping It Real

Her Daddy had the money…. All the milk and honey… she never had to pay any dues
Don’t know what her name is… but man she sure is famous… she keeps herself all over the news
They’re playing close attention… the new Inside Edition… Is feeding all they can to her fans
She’s got the paparazzi… behind her Macerate… Their snapping off as much as they can

I say why, why, why has it got be such a big deal?
We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real
Better off keeping it real

She got a brand new movie..bout giving up the bootie… she showed it all and nobody cared
And made her such a mess..when she didn’t get the press so she went and cut off all her hair

I said why, why, why haS it got to be such a big deal?
We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real
Better off keeping it real

Harmonica solo

I said why, why, why haS it got to be such a big deal?
We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real
Better off keeping it real

He said he didn’t do it.. they couldn’t hold him to it… he smiled and walked away a free man
The glove didn’t fit him…. the jury said acquit him…. It all worked out the way that he planned
But he Couldn’t live without it… he wrote a book about it.. yea everything he did that night
They didn’t get him for the crime…but he’s gonna do the time… cause he’s got to get back in the spotlight
I said why, why, why haS it got to be such a big deal?
We try, try, try… I’ve come to the conclusion.. we’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real
I’ve come to the conclusion.. We’re living an illusion.. better off just Keeping it real
Better off keeping it real
Oh we’re better off just keeping it real




Woman Gotta Have It Taylor Hicks/Elliot Yamin

Taylor: (Fella's I wonder would you mind if I talked to ya for a minute. You know, sometimes we have a tendencies, or should I say we forget, what a woman needs every now and then. That is if you wanna keep your thing together. Listen to me now)

Do the things that keeps the smile on her face
Say the things that make her feel better everyday.
Then you got to stay on your p's and q's. If you don't, the woman you can easy lose.

Whoa oa oa I, Oh I had a love, a love and I lost her, and no one can help me share the pain that she caused me. Ohhh, a woman's gotta have it, I believe, she's gotta know that she's needed around. When you kiss her, you gotta make her feel it, everytime boy, she wants to know that she's not walkin' on shakey ground. Ohhhh, yeah.

Elliott: Well, think it over.
Taylor: Think it over
Elliott: Think it over my brother. Don't take for granted the smile
(Taylor and Elliott)on her face.
Elliott: Check a little bit closer, you might find
(Taylor and Elliott)a tear trace.
Elliott: Maybe the girl might never say a
(Taylor and Elliott) mumbling word,
Elliott: but you gotta make sure that her voice is heard.

Taylor: Whoa Ohhh Ohhh I had a love,
Elliott: Had a love
Taylor :, a true love and I lost it,
Elliott: Yes I did
Taylor: I'm suffering all this pain that that love caused me. A woman gotta have it,
Elliott: Woman gotta have it
Taylor: I believe
Elliott and Taylor: she's got to know that she's needed around
Taylor: you gotta make her feel it,
Elliott: You gotta make her feel it
Taylor: Anytime boy
Elliott: Every time boy
Taylor and Elliott: she wants to know that she's not walkin' on shakey ground.
Elliott: Ohhh Yeah.
Taylor: WHOAAAAAAAAAA Yeee ahhh
Elliott: Yeah, yeah, yeah Think it over yeah whoo hoo
Taylor: What ya trying to say boy?
Elliott: yeah you know a womans gotta have it

Cindy, thanks so much for the link! I am listening to the tracks now and I am really enjoying the music. I am looking forward to the release of the new CD. LOVE Nineteen!

I love the new CD, the Distance. There is so much depth of emotions as the listener follows Taylor's Journey using his tremendous voice to show us the way. I too love "Nineteen." but there are so many treasures is this CD. I hope there will be more videos and that Taylor's vibe climbs the charts. He really deserves the recognition!
A faithful TH folower of Taylor and his growth as an entertainer. toffee

Someone on another blog is jealous of you. That someone isn't known to be nice to others that get more attention on their blogs than she does. She was also jealous of Gray Charles.

You have me curious. I have no clue who you mean. No reason at all to be jealous of me. I enjoy Taylor's music very much, have total respect for him as a human and enjoy writing and talking about Taylor.
