LYRICS

1. He Was There 3:24
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
Guitar: Tony Rice
Harmony Vocals: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jon Carroll
Bass: Bryn Davies
Dobro: Rob Ickes
Fiddle: Rickie Simpkins

She was sitting in class, painting her nails
He watched her every move, he could tell
She never knew he was there
She wore the latest styles & knew what was cool
He was tall & shy, the smartest in school
She didn’t care
He looked forward to seeing her every day, at lunch time
And as he sat down she would leave
On a dance floor and lost in the crowd,
He got the courage to hold out his hand and smile
She said “In Your Dreams”

He was there, she hardly noticed
He was invisible, and not the coolest guy
He was there, and he mattered
And all she had to do, was just return a smile

10 years & 3 kids later, she was working in a grocery store
Her marriage falling apart at the seams
Tall & shy turned into dark & handsome,
A wealthy lawyer with all the answers
And every woman’s dream
One day she passed him on the street,
He stole her heart instantly, as she stared in disbelief
She was wearing worn out clothes,
Her kids were screaming out of control,
And she smiled, and he said “In your dreams”

He was there, she never noticed
He’d been invisible, and after all this time
He was there, and he mattered
Took her years to know it, he’d been there all the time
And all she had to do, was just return a smile

2. Simple Man 2:36
Guitar: Tim Stafford
Banjo: Scott Vestal
Mandolin: Sam Bush
Fiddle: Ron Stewart
Dobro: Rob Ickes
Harmony Vocals: Sonya Isaacs, Carl Jackson

Many miles & days, spent by my Daddy’s side
I got to know him well, we were together all the time
A hard working man, with a Bible on his arm
His lungs stayed filled with dust, rolling hay on that old farm
His worn out hands they built my dollhouse
And many miles of fence
They even built a real house, him & Momma lived in ever since
He’s never missed a Sunday, in that old country church
He’s always kind to strangers, and he’s always kept his word

A simple man, worth his weight in gold
I wouldn’t trade him, for everything I own
A simple man, simply growing old
And my love for him aint simple, and I sure hope he knows

Arthritis took him over, keeps him awake at night
He don’t deserve the pain, his silver hair is turning white
He no longer drives his tractor, it just sits out in the barn
And though he is retired, he still works hard
He was never rich, but he never wanted anything
He sat out in the rain, selling cars & old machines
His old truck is barely running, but he drives it with a smile
He always made sure I had better, and that I was first in line

A simple man, worth his weight in gold
I wouldn’t trade him, for everything I own
A simple man, simply growing old
And my love for him aint simple, and I sure hope he knows

3. Daddy’s Voice 3:42
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

His eyes were blue
His hair was gray and his hands were strong
His smile was kind
He worked hard, and he worked all day long
He liked to pray
And I was in his prayers every night
And every day, he gave me wisdom and he taught me wrong from right
Losing Daddy was the hardest thing I’ve known
Thank God for Mama and my friends
I’d give anything in this world that I own
If I could hear my Daddy’s voice again
He’d tell me no
I’d roll my eyes & give him such a hard time
He didn’t know, how lost I’d feel without him here tonight
He didn’t know, that I’d remember every little word he said then
How he would smile, if he had known how much I try to be just like him
Sometimes I laugh about his same ole crazy stories
Sometimes I just break down & cry
Wish I had a dollar for every funny word he said
And I wish he never had to say goodbye
He liked to sing, him and Mama taught me all the gospel hymns
They stood behind my dreams, showed me how to work for what I believed in
Losing Daddy was the hardest thing I’ve known
Thank God for Mama & my friends
I’d give anything for this world that I own
If I could hear my Daddy’s voice again
I’d give anything in this world that I own
If I could hear my Daddy’s voice
Again

4. Pictures 3:01
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
Fiddle: Greg Luck
Mandolin: Chris Harris
Surrounded by pictures, pictures of you
In the pictures you are laughing
And all the skies are blue
I have so many pictures, smiling all around the room
And I’m glad I have these pictures, but I wish that I had you
They don’t ever talk to me
They don’t ever laugh out loud
They don’t reach out, to give a needed hug
They don’t ever make a sound
Pictures are all priceless
Times I wish I had again
Somehow they can’t see me, I can only see them
I was always taking pictures
And now I’m glad I did
They’re all that I have left of you
And my heart will never mend
I have so many pictures, smiling all around the room
And I’m glad I have these pictures, but I wish that I had you
And I’m glad I have these pictures, but I wish that I had you

5. I’ll See You Then 3:58
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
Fiddle: Greg Luck

Verse 1: Was it you, swirling all around me?
Was it you, who stirred those pretty leaves?
Where are you? Sitting on a rainbow?
Is that you, smiling down on me?

Verse 2: Were you laughing, when I ran from the bumble bee?
Did you send that butterfly to say hello?
When it’s raining, and splashing at my feet, are you,
There watching, and smiling down on me?

Chorus 1: So how is Heaven? Are you singing with the angels?
You’re finally home, and you’re not hurting anymore
I’ll see you around, when my work is over
I’ll see you then, if not before

Break

Verse 3: Did you lead me to that four leaf clover?
Are you catching sweet sunshine in your hands?
Did you leave that penny in my pocket, telling me save them when I can?

Verse 4: Are you the reason, that I fell off the ladder?
And somehow it didn’t hurt at all
Did you send angels to surround me?
Did you tell them, to catch me when I fall?

Bridge: The twinkle of the fireflies, on a background of stars
They say it’s beautiful and happy where you are
The sparkle of the ocean and the seashells in the sand
Can’t be as beautiful as when I see you again

Chorus 2: So how is Heaven? Are you singing with the angels?
You’re finally home, and you’re not hurting anymore
I’ll see you around, when my work is over
I’ll see you then
Tag: I’ll see you then
If not before

6. Stand By Me 3:10
Written in 1905 by Ben E. King
Piano: Donna Hughes
When the storms of life are raging, stand by me
When the storms of life are raging, stand by me
When the world is tossing me, like a ship upon the sea
Thou who rulest wind & water, stand by me

In the midst of tribulation, stand by me
In the midst of tribulation, stand by me
When the hosts of hell assail, and my strength begins to fail
Thou who never lost a battle, stand by me

In the midst of faults & failures, stand by me
In the midst of faults & failures, stand by me
When I do the best I can, and my friends misunderstand
Thou who knowest all about me, stand by me

In the midst of persecution, stand by me
In the midst of persecution, stand by me
When my foes in battle array, undertake to stop my way
Thou who saved Paul & Silas, stand by me
When my life becomes a burden, I’m nearing the banks of Jordan
Oh the Lilly of the Valley, stand by me

7. When They Ring the Golden Bells 2:54
Piano: Donna Hughes

There’s a land beyond the river, that we call the sweet forever
And we only reach that shore by faith’s decree
One by one we’ll gain the portals, there to dwell with the immortals
When they ring the golden bells for you and me
Don’t you hear the bells now ringing?
Don’t you hear the angels singing?
Tis’ a glory hallelujah jubilee
In that far off sweet forever, just beyond the shining river
When they ring those golden bells for you and me
We shall know no sin or sorrow, in that haven of tomorrow
When our barque shall sail beyond the silver sea
We shall only know the blessing, of our father’s sweet caressing
When they ring the golden bells for you and me
When our days shall know their number, when in death we sweetly slumber
And the King commands the spirit to be free
Never more with anguish laden, we shall reach that lovely aiden
When they ring the golden bells for you and me
Don’t you hear the bells now ringing?
Don’t you hear the angels singing?
Tis’ a glory hallelujah jubilee
In that far off sweet forever, just beyond the shining river
When they ring those golden bells for you and me
When they ring those golden bells for you and me

8. My Lord Is Near Me All the Time 2:49
Piano: Donna Hughes
Fiddle, harmony: Greg Luck
In the lightning flash across the sky, His mighty power I see
And I know if he can reign on high, his light can shine on me
I’ve seen it in the lightning, heard it in the thunder, and I’ve felt it in the rain
My Lord is near me all the time
My Lord is near me all the time
When the thunder shakes the mighty hills, and trembles every tree
Then I know a God so great & strong, can surely harbor me
I’ve seen it in the lightning, heard it in the thunder, and I’ve felt it in the rain
My Lord is near me all the time
My Lord is near me all the time
When refreshing showers cool the Earth, and sweep across the sea
Then His rainbow shines within my heart, His nearness comforts me
I’ve seen it in the lightning, heard it in the thunder, and I’ve felt it in the rain
My Lord is near me all the time
My Lord is near me all the time

9. He Reminded Me of You 2:18
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

He made my heartbeat fly, as he walked by
The way he looked at me, could get me thru the night
He was everything, that I needed
When he held me tight, I felt so wild & free
I placed his hands in mine, he looked at me & smiled
And as I held him tight, he reminded me of you
I gave him all my love, for just one night,
Then I said goodbye, cause he reminded me of you
I missed my chance, to let you go
And I missed the dance he offered with a smile
I might have fallen in love with him
If I could just forget you for awhile
I placed his hands in mine, & I liked his smile
And as I held him tight, he reminded me of you
I gave him all my love, for just one night,
Then I said goodbye, cause he reminded me of you
And as I said goodnight, he reminded me of you

10. Father Time 2:44
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

The wind is blowing, through the pines
Always stealing from me, father time
Taking from me, what was never mine
One more day, one more night
Always longing for the past
Taking for granted, the time at hand
Every moment like shifting sand
Leaving weary, the strongest man
Many fortunes have been gained and lost
Upon the ocean, many ships have crossed
Many brilliant souls, have lived & died
At the hands of father time
I’m not promised, another day
Still I’m reckless, and time I waste
All my tears, cried in vain
Gaining wisdom, as beauty fades
Gaining wisdom, as beauty fades
Many seasons have now come & gone
Fleeting memories overwhelm my soul
As the hands of fate, twist & unwind,
I’m at the mercy, of father time

11. Nothing Easy 2:44
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
Fiddle: Jenee Fleenor

Verse 1 I cannot touch the sky
And I cannot stop the wind from blowing
I cannot read your mind
And I don’t know how to stop you from going
Chorus 1
I wish I knew which way to go
What to say
or what to do enough
I wanna get inside your heart
I wish I knew, how not to let it go
There’s nothing easy about love
Verse 2 You’re so easy to love
It’s hard to walk away from that smile
There’s something that I need
And I thought that I could find it in your eyes
Chorus 2
But I don’t know where to go
What to say
or what to do enough
I wanna get inside your heart
I don’t know, how not to let it go
There’s nothing easy about love
Chorus 3
Somebody tell me where to go
What to say to you
and what to do enough
How’d you get inside my heart
I wanna know, how not to let it go
There’s nothing easy about love
Some day I’ll know, how not to let it go
There’s nothing easy

12. Nights 2:14
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
Fiddle, harmony: Greg Luck

Tears that fall on my pillow, and the shadows on the wall
A sign another day is finished, but there’s no rest for me at all
A broken heart will keep on travelin,
A restless mind is never sure
The days are so long without you
The nights are not for sleeping anymore
I force a smile beneath the sunlight
At night I’m fighting back the tears
I know that Heaven’s glad to have you
But I sure wish that we were here
A broken heart will keep on travelin,
A restless mind is never sure
The days are so long without you
The nights are not for sleeping anymore
The nights are not for sleeping anymore

13. Silver Eagles 2:22
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
Sunday morning, I’m leaving out
Done all I can, in this old town
Someday, I’ll be back again
When I forget, how hard it’s been
Silver eagles, winding down on 40
Shining in the sun, rolling into town
To carry those, whose dreams, have all come true
Across the miles, they’re coming in, I’m leaving out
Sunday morning, finds me sad
All this praying, and it’s outta my hands
All I have is a song in my heart
100 miles to home and an old worn out guitar
Silver eagles, winding down on 40
Shining in the sun, rolling into town
To carry those, whose dreams, have all come true
Across the miles, they’re coming in, I’m leaving out

14. Saying Hello 3:16
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
The misty fog stretched across the highway
The gentle breeze circling the leaves
That pretty cloud, shaped just like a heart
That’s Daddy saying hello to me

That time I saw, a bright shooting star
The colored butterflies that glide along the road
A nickel on the ground, made the year I left for college
Reminding me he’s waiting for me to come home

Chorus He’s all around me now
He’s up there smiling down
He isn’t hurting now
I’m gonna make him proud
Four leaf clover in the spring
Red bird on a snowy tree
In my heart I do believe
It’s really Daddy…… saying hello to me

The silver rain that danced across my windshield
The crazy bird laughing loudly in the tree
His favorite song playing on the radio
Could that be Daddy saying hello to me

The wind is moving my porch swing today
He must be looking at the tears on my face
His favorite team is playing baseball on TV
I miss my Daddy
Saying hello to me

The leaves are dancing on the sidewalk today
He must be telling me it’s gonna be ok
I saw a little boy with blue eyes smiling
Just like Daddy…………….
How I miss my Daddy………………..
Saying Hello to me

15. Dangerous 2:26
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

I’m dangerous when I fall
I’m heavy, on another soul
I’m overwhelming, when I call
I’ll leave you weary, as my love will take it’s toll
I make decisions that will make you wonder why
You’ll feel guilty cause you’ll wanna say goobye
Take what you want from me, and get it while you can
Cause I’m dangerous, I’ll never love again
When I love someone, it takes control of me
I want what I can’t have, and I want what I don’t need
Nothing’s ever, good enough for me
If you wanna be happy, here and now you’ll set me free
I make decisions that will make you wonder why
You’ll feel guilty cause you’ll wanna say goobye
Take what you want from me, and get it while you can
Cause I’m dangerous, I’ll never love again

16. Never Let You Go 2:27
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes
I don’t know what makes the rain
Or what’s inside the moon
Why do kids grow up so fast
And why can’t things stay new

I don’t know why leaves must fall
And why the snow’s so cold
But I know that I need you
And I’ll never let you go

I don’t know why the earth is round
Or why the sky is blue
Some things I’ll never know
But I know I’ll never let you go

How do birds find their way
Do they say goodbye
Why do good folks die alone
Will the stars come out tonight

I don’t know why life’s so short
And why friends come and go
The way I feel about you now
Is all I really know

I don’t know why the earth is round
Or why the sky is blue
Some things I’ll never know
But I know I’ll never let you go

Bridge:
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow may not come
Today is all we have, so I’m gonna, I’m gonna hold on

I don’t know why the earth is round
Or why the sky is blue
Some things I’ll never know
But I know I’ll never let you go
Yes I know I’ll never let you go

17. Facebook 2:10
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Donna Hughes

Facebook was made by the devil
Facebook was made in hell
Facebook is nothing but tramps & cheatin
Causin relationships to fail

You know what everybody’s doin
It’s nothing but games & lies
Half naked pictures & wild, wild parties
Somebody’s getting left tonight

Your new tattoo, your new fake boobs
Your night out at the bar
Your dog just died you’re at the lake, and who just broke your heart
You’re lonely tonight, you got in a fight, your best friend just got nailed
So hold that beer up and tell me to cheer up, cause facebook was made in hell

There’ way too much temptation
So pucker up those lips
All it takes is a smile and a trampy dress this just aint fit for kids

Nothing but tasteless photos
Teachers are losing jobs
Running around with the students
And husbands are getting shot

Your new tattoo, your new fake boobs
You’re trying to steal my man
Bible verses and dirty jokes
And your vacation plans
Everybody’s broke, and there’s no jobs
No wonder the market fell
Nobody’s workin, eveybody’s posting, cause facebook was made in, the devil made me do it, facebook was made in hell
Post your puppy, your jokes are funny
I wish I lived 100 years ago, cause facebook was made in hell

18. Love 3:36
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Donna Hughes
Love is patient, love is kind
It leaves you weary, makes you blind
Love is scary, love is cold
A fairy tale, that can’t be told

It makes you high, leaves you low
It comes on fast, and leaves you slow
Love is pain, love is tough
But I can’t live, without love

Take your time, Don’t let it go
Love with all, Your heart and soul
We are young, Then we’re old
And we can’t live, without love

Love is heavy, love is deep
It holds you down, and sets you free
Love is crazy, gives you wings
Worth the heartache, it will bring

Verse 4: Love can kill you, make you wanna die
But you can’t live, if you don’t try
Makes you weak, makes you strong,
But you can’t live, without love

Take your time, Don’t let it go
Love with all, Your heart and soul
We are young, Then we’re old
And we can’t live, without love

Take your time, Don’t let it go
Love with all, Your heart and soul
We are young, Then we’re old
And we can’t live, without love

19. Love Me 2:49
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

I don’t care what you have or don’t have
I don’t care, what you did in the past
This love is perfect, this love is true
Millions of people, millions of miles,
And I chose you
I don’t care,
If you live like a king
I don’t need, material things
Just give me your heart, give me your time
And just love me
Just love me tonight
With feelings you can’t fight
We won’t live forever
Just surrender, your heart
And just love me
If I had you, that’s all I’d ever need
Don’t be scared, don’t fight the way you feel
It can’t be wrong, only right
No more long, and lonely nights
Just love me
Take my hand
Don’t ever let it go
Take me away
To places I don’t know
How can I
Make you stay
Please don’t run
Don’t be afraid
And just love me
Just love me tonight
With feelings you can’t fight
We won’t live forever
Just surrender, your heart
Just give me, your heart
And just love me

20. Make or Break Me 3:16
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Donna Hughes

I keep holding on & you keep letting go
Heartache & sorrow is all that I’ve known
I need you to show me how love’s supposed to feel
Cause I’ve never known a feeling so real
Down the road, we’ll know where we stand
You hold my heart, in the palm of your hand
And I don’t know, where this love will take me
But I think your love’s gonna make me or break me
I wanna give you the best that I have
I’ll be right here through the good & the bad
All that I ask is that you can be faithful
And I’ll give you my love just as long as I’m able
Down the road, we’ll know where we stand
You hold my heart, in the palm of your hand
And I don’t know, where this love will take me
But I think your love’s gonna make me or break me
I think I need you more every day
I hope you need me, and I hope you’ll stay
If I had my wish, I would have you forever
Cause I’m only happy, when we’re together
Down the road, we’ll know where we stand
You hold my heart, in the palm of your hand
And I don’t know, where this love will take me
But I think your love’s gonna make or break me
Yeah I think your love’s gonna make me or break me

21. Stars 2:26
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Donna Hughes

A country boy and a small town girl, back in high school days
She thought he was cute, he thought she was fine, he asked her on a date
They shared some laughs, and they shared some love, out underneath the stars
And then they went their separate ways, spent years & years apart
She moved away, he got tied down, life was flying by
Many times he crossed her mind, sometimes late at night
Often on those lonely nights, she wished upon a star
She longed to find a boy like that, he was always in her heart
Falling stars & four leaf clovers,
Don’t give up, it’s never over
When it comes to love & life, don’t ever question why
Lucky horseshoes & pretty rainbows
When you find love, don’t let go
Don’t worry about your heart
It’s written in the stars
The tides would turn, and things would change
He found himself alone
Outta the blue, they met one day, now they’re never letting go
It took 20 years to find her way, back into his arms
It’s meant to be, and it’s destiny, and it’s written in the stars
Falling stars & four leaf clovers,
Don’t give up, it’s never over
When it comes to love & life, don’t ever question why
Lucky horseshoes & pretty rainbows
When you find love, don’t let go
Don’t worry about your heart
It’s written in the stars

22. Never Been This Close to Heaven 3:31
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Joel Keys
The moon is full…The leaves are falling
My heart is burning, like a flame
The air is cold….The stars are shining
I must be dreaming, as you touch my face

I’ve never been this close to Heaven
And my feet can’t touch the ground
Your love defines me like words cannot explain
I’ve never been this close to Heaven

Hand in hand….My heart is melting
I’ve never found this before
All my life, I’ve been waiting
You are standing, at my door

I’ve never been this close to Heaven
And my feet can’t touch the ground
Your love defines me like words cannot explain
I’ve never been this close to Heaven

We’re moving closer, hearts on fire
Feels like I’m flying, in the sky
The world stands still…I light a candle
The light is moving, in your eyes

I’ve never been this close to Heaven
And my feet won’t touch the ground
Your love defines me like words cannot explain
I’ve never been this close……………………….I’ve never been this close to Heaven

23. Cold, Cold Heartache 2:15
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Joel Keys
The wrong place, the wrong time
Carried away with beautiful lies
Head over heels
Sadly mistaken
Nothing but sorrow, is how it feels
Cold, cold heartache
Killing me again
Cold, cold heartache
Cold, like the winter wind
Losing my way
Losing my faith
Giving my best, wasting the days
Looking for truth
Finding regret
Is there anyone out there to make me forget?

24. He’ll Do For Now 3:30
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Guitar: Booie Beach
Fiddle: Jenee Fleenor

He drinks too much, and he needs to go to church
His car’s a mess, and it’s a piece of crap for sure
He’s the laziest guy I’ve met by far
He blows all his money, hanging in bars
My Daddy hates him
I wanna make him proud
I don’t have time to look around
So he’ll do for now
I’m tired of working and paying the bills
While he watches NASCAR change a wheel
No hunting rifles are going on my wall, or deer antlers either
FYI he’s gone, the next guy who calls
It’s no secret, he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed
He’s better than nothing, I guess
He’s not ambitious
They say he brings me down
My Daddy wishes he would drown
He’ll do for now
I need a man who can mow my yard
Takes me to dinner, washes my car
I got a man who plays video games
Lays outta work and drinks beer all day
I’ll admit it, he’s not the best that I can get
I think I was desperate when we met
My Daddy hates him
Thinks he’s nowhere bound
He’s really cute, but his teeth are brown
He’ll do for now
I hate his friends, and his family’s not the best crowd
Unfortunately, he’ll do for now – oh yeah
Unfortunately, he’ll do for now – oh yeah
He’ll do for now
He’ll for now
Until somebody better comes along
I need Mr. Right, not Mr. right now!

25. Gospel Song 2:30
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

Riding down the highway
My old Daddy by my side
Gospel playing on the radio
Nothing sad on our minds
Outside the world is crazy
Sometimes that road gets long
I won’t forget that time with Daddy, when we were listening, to a gospel song
I know Jesus loves me
I am weak, but He is strong
And I know we’ll get to Heaven
I learned it, from a gospel song
Yeah we all get old & feeble
And you know our time is not long
And someday we’ll be together, forever, listening to a gospel song
Smiling to a gospel song

26. Not Anymore 3:11
Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound Publishing, BMI
Piano: Donna Hughes

I used to cry over you
I lost my heart & there was nothing I could do
I couldn’t smile when you would leave
If you were mad, I couldn’t find the strength to breathe
I used to pine for what we had
I woke up hurting in my heart for you so bad
A stronger love had never been
I used to miss you, and all the times we spent
Not anymore
Not now
You tore my heart out, gave me up & brought me down
You set me free, walked out the door
I used to need you to be happy, not anymore
Time heals everything
You almost killed me when you left & now I see
I think of you now & then
But you’ll never get the chance to break my heart again
Not anymore
Not now
You tore my heart out, gave me up & broke me down
Now I’m free, I’m out the door
I couldn’t stand a day without you, not anymore
Not anymore, I’ve had enough
I used to think I couldn’t live without your love
Now I’m free
Now I’m sure
I used to think I really loved you
I used to think I’d without you
Not anymore
