A Little While
She had it all, but woke up one day
Find he was walking out with nothing left to say.
Just determined to live a life without her.
He left a note she couldnít read
Blinded by tears, she felt she couldnít breathe.
As she pondered she wondered what to do.
All I could say was
Give it just a little while, just a little while,
Because You Need Me
Where was I before your love?
Drifting like the clouds above.
And who was I before I knew your name?
A song without a melody,
A road without a destiny.
And how could I have ever known youíd touch me
And Iíll never be the same.
The world is open to me, now,
With you I feel the solid ground beneath me
Bring Him Back
Jesus, I donít mean to bother You,
Iím sure You got better things You need to do.
But Iíve been real bad, but You already know that, donít You?
And that that way ainít easy.
I did some things wouldnít have done to me,
Things that would make an ordinary man yell, fight and scream.
But no, no, not him, he just left without a scene,
Thatís just a man he is.
What me and my girls plan to do was hang around,
Have fun, girl talk, talk real loud.
Then I get approached by a man that probably didnít know I demand respect,
All I wanna do is your offers necklace and brag about his big vet house in
So I told myself itís time to make my exit, then he had the nerve to grab
my arm and say
Hey mama, wonít you, wonít you,
Come here to bar, I wonít stop you.
When I think of home I think of a place where thereís love overflowing
I wish I were home, I wish I was back here with the things Iíve been
And that makes the tall grass bend into leaning,
Suddenly the raindrops that fall have meaning.
Sprinkling the scene, makes it all clear.
Maybe thereís a chance for me to go back,
Now that I, I have some direction.
It sure would be nice for me to go back home
Iíd give you the moon, but youíll never know the warmth of a sunshine.
Iíd give you the world, but, exactly what would that do?
I promised you wings to fly, but how will you ever learn to ground?
So I wish you what you need, to be more than I could be.
This is what I wish for you.
I wish you rainy days, so you can know the beauty of a clear blue sky.
I wish you fallen leaves, so youíll understand the seasons change.
And if Iíd give you the mountains, would you like to climb?
I pray youíll always see the flowers through the trees.
One Last Cry
My shaded tears and broken heart are mending on the shelf.
I saw you holding hands, standing close to someone else.
Now I sit all alone, wishing all my feelings gone,
I give my best to you, nothing for me to do.
But Iíve one last cry, one last cry,
Before I leave it all behind.
I gotta put you out of my mind.
This time, stop live in a lie.
I guess Iím damned to my last cry.
Only One In The World
Tonight was quiet, I watch you sleep
The room is dark, I hear you breathe.
I wish this moment never ends, never ends.
Your breath is music to my soul,
A rhythm that Iíve come to know.
I canít resist, I touch your skin
Again and again.
I hold you close, up close, I know youíre my baby.
River Deep Mountain High
When I was a little girl I had a rag doll,
The only doll I've ever own.
And now I love you just the way
I loved that rag doll,
Only now my love has grown.
And it gets stronger in every way,
It gets deeper, let me say
And it gets higher than I get.
Run To You
I know that when you look at me,
Thatís how much that you just donít see.
But if you would only take the time,
I know in my heart youíd find.
Oh, a girl is scared sometimes, isnít always strong,
Canít you see the hurt in me? I feel so all alone.
I wanna run to you, you
I wanna run to you, you
Early in the morning I put breakfast at your table
And make sure that your coffee has its sugary crŤme.
Your eggs are worm for greasy, your toast unlikely,
All that stuff it means the moment kiss that used to greet me.
And now you say the juice is sour, it used to be so sweet,
And I canít help but to wonder if youíre talking about me.
We donít talk the way we used to talk, itís hurting so deep.
Iíve got my pride, I will not cry, but itís making me big.
