Katie Tuck

Emerging country starlet Katie Tuck's rich and powerful voice captivates listeners and can only be described as a gift from God. At only 15 years old, Tuck has already recorded in the notorious "Sound Kitchen" of Nashville, Tennessee. In 2010, Tuck's first single, a powerful ballad called "I Wanna Be That Girl," caught the attention of many well-respected country music insiders including Grammy award winning songwriter Liz Rose, best known for her work co-writing with country superstar Taylor Swift ("White Horse," "Teardrops on My Guitar," "You Belong With Me").

A Virginia native, Katie grew up listening to a mixture of country, pop, and rock music. Tuck's idol is country music sweetheart and American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood. "She is so amazing and a great role model," says Tuck. Being a good person and setting a good example is at the very core of who Katie Tuck is as a person and artist. Tuck devotes her time and talent to numerous charity fundraisers including the National Children's Advocacy Center to help fight child abuse and neglect. "I believe that God has given me the talent, passion, and desire to do this. I believe that my music will be used to bring smiles, tears, and healing to people. I want to make a difference."

LYRICS

Forget

You swore that you weren't
gonna see her anymore
and I believed you
Give me one more chance
I caught you lyin' by her side
and stood there crying with a knife
Stuck in my back

No matter how bad it hurts
God says that I should forgive

CHORUS:
So that's what I'm gonna do
While I'm walkin' out on you
I won't hate you when I'm gone
For all the times you did me wrong
I'll give you all my grace
But I don't have to stay
And let you break my heart again
Cause God never said I have to forget

If I could dig a hole
deep enough to bury
everything you've done
I would be glad to
Baby I can't erase the past;
I can't pretend like nothin' happened
And I don't have to

God knows I've only loved you
And nobody else
Its time that I loved myself

CHORUS

No matter how bad it hurts
No matter what the sin
God says that I should forgive

CHORUS

God never said
I have to forget
God never said
I have to forget
God never said
I have to forget

You Get Me

I laugh a little too loud
I talk a little too fast
Wear a lot of red
but my favorite color's black
I am out on myspace
In on e-mail
Up with sleeping late
And down on perfect males
I'm right brained a little left of center
But somehow you always seem to get my

Chorus:
Constant stupid jokes
Sometimes crazy hair
Or what I say
and my lost in space stare
You get my midnight chocolate urge
Tie die hippie shirts
And wholly 100 dollar blue jeans
Baby you get me

When the buildings get too tall
I get vertigo
I'm less New York
And a lot more Mexico
Tea in the evening
with my Beethoven
Toast in the morning
with a little bit of pearl jam
I'm conservative and sometimes liberal
But even when I am in between
You get my

Chorus x 2

Baby you get me
That's why you get me
Ooh you get me
You get me

A Love That's Alive

We try to put in a bottle
Put it in a locket
Put it in a picture, in a frame on the wall
And we wear it like a medal
On a ring around a finger
Though it's beautiful
It's not what really matters at all
So boys don't promise me any of those things
Cause what I really need

Chorus: Is love that blows like the wind
Kisses my skin and says a prayer at night
When I lay down turn out the light
It's a love that burns in your heart
Falls like tears from my eyes
I need a love that's alive

It's knowing without saying
It's giving without taking
And remembering what it was like
the moment we met
It's a time it takes to listen
It's fighting for forgiveness
Without forgetting just how fragile
Both of hearts of our hearts can get
It's arms that are open wide anywhere anytime
So what I really need is

Chorus:
Is love, that blows like the wind
Kisses my skin, and says a prayer at night
When I lay down turn out the light
It's a love that burns in your heart
Falls like tears from my eyes
I need a love that's alive

It's stronger every day
More beautiful with age
And I know once I have it
I won't take one kiss for granted
A Love, that burns in your heart
Falls like tears from my eyes
I need a love that s alive
I need a love that s alive

I Wanna Be That Girl

Nothin' brings her down
Nothin' breaks her heart
Nothin' makes her fall
When it all starts falling apart
She never breaks a sweat
When nothing's going right
She never backs down
from another lonely night

I wanna be that girl
I wanna be that strong
Don't wanna care, don't wanna cry
When it's time to carry on
I wanna be the one to find
The answer to her broken heart
So it won't hurt no more
I wanna be that girl

Nothin' makes her cry
Nothin' ever will
She doesn't take the time
For her broken heart to heal
She doesn't shed a tear
When she's down and out
Love's just a luxury
She can live without

I wanna be that girl
I wanna be that strong
Don't wanna care, don't wanna cry
When it's time to carry on
I wanna be the one to find
The answer to her broken heart
So it won't hurt no more
I wanna be that girl

Sometime I have to remind myself
When I fall short of grace
I have to just look in the mirror
And I'll see her face

I wanna be that girl
I wanna be that strong
Don't wanna care, don't wanna cry
When it's time to carry on
I wanna be the one to find
The answer to her broken heart
So it won't hurt no more
I wanna be the one to find
The answer to her broken heart
So it won't hurt no more
I wanna be that girl

You

Everybody knows what everybody thinks
Everybody knows where everybody lives
Around here
Around here
And everybody dreams of leaving some day
Off to New York or maybe L.A.
But not me. No not me
I'm stayin' close to home
cause you're everywhere I go.

Chorus:
We got one high school we say it's the best
Two stop lights you can see the rest
In two short minutes hardly know you're in it
Our Main Street runs three blocks
A hardware store and two old cops
It's the same thing
Other small town people do
What makes it different
What makes it wonderful is you
Oh oh it's you.

Other guys try but it's not the same
Nobody else can' say my name like you do
You call me beautiful
All the other girls in all the little towns
Would give anything for what I found
Cause it's so true so true
It's so true
I love these streets we walk together
I love this place but you make it better

Chorus

Something about Those big blue eyes
That make me see a different sky
When I'm with you It doesn't matter where.
Ohh Ohh

We got one high school we say it's the best
Two stop lights you can see the rest
In two short minutes hardly know you're in it
We got a diner that stays open late
A corner table our first date
It's not the greatest but it's our favorite
Ohh movie house where we hold hands
A front porch that's our first dance
This town might not make the evening news
What makes it different
What makes it wonderful is you
Oh oh it's you
Oh you know it's you.
