Michael Martin Murphey – What She Wants lyrics

She hasn't had time to learn about this world
She takes each day the way it comes
And she can get sad, but she's just a little girl
She doesn't ask much from anyone

But what she wants is you and me
Love at home like it used to be
And what she wants is what we were
The way we loved when we had her

She's only a child but all the tears are real

She may wish they didn't show
She hasn't got words to tell us how it feels
She tries so hard to let us know

Repeat Chorus

You may think it's not enough, that she wants us back in love
And I won't beg and I won't plead, but what she wants is what I need

Repeat Chorus

The way we loved, when we had her
