Bonnie Raitt – All At Once lyrics

Had a fight with my daughter
She flew off in a rage
Third time this week
Don't tell me it's the age
Don't know how I lost her
I only know that it's a shame
Ever since her Daddy left
The girl ain't been the same.

All at once I hear your voice
And time just slips away
Nothing they can say could hold me here
Take me where I only feel
The wind across my face
Let me know there's someplace left for me
Waiting just for me.
Ah, who am I kiddin'
I should have known he'd never leave
The time we spend together
Is harder than the time between
You wouldn't think it could hurt so
To see 'em out the other day
If that's what he calls leavin'
I guess I threw it all away.

They say women, we're the stronger
Somehow we always make it through
Hell, that ain't how I feel right now
I don't even think it's true
Looks to me there's lots more broken
Than anyone can really see
Why the angels turn their backs on some
Is just a mystery to me.
