Walking on thin ice, I'm paying the price For throwing the dice in the air. Why must we learn it the hard way And play the game of life with your heart?
I gave you my knife, You gave me my life Like a gush of wind in my hair. Why do we forget what's been said And play the game of life with our hearts?
I may cry some day, But the tears will dry whichever way. And when our hearts return to ashes, It'll be just a story, It'll be just a story.
I knew a girl who tried to walk across the lake, Course it was winter when all this was ice. That's a hell of a thing to do, you know. They say the lake is as big as the ocean. I wonder if she knew about it?

Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
