D*I*V*O*R*C*E (Tammy Wynette)
Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man so we spell out the words we don't want him to understand. Like t-o-y or maybe s-u-r-p-r-i-s-e. But the words we're hiding from him now tear the heart right out of me.
Our d-i-v-o-r-c-e becomes final today. Me and little J-o-e will be going away. I love you both and this will be pure h-e-l-l for me. I wish that we could stop this d-i-v-o-r-c-e.
Watch him smile, he thinks it's Christmas or his 5th birthday and he thinks c-u-s-t-o-d-y spells fun or play. I'll spell out all the hurting words and turn my head when I speak 'cause I can't spell away this hurt that's dripping down my cheek.
Blue Eyes Cryin' In
The Rain (Willie Nelson)
In the twilight glow I see her blue eyes cryin' in the rain. When we klssed good-bye and parted, I knew we'd never meet again.
Love is like a dying ember - only memories remain. Through the ages I'll remember blue eyes cryin' in the rain.
Someday when we meet up yonder , we'll stroll hand in hand again. In the land that knows no parting...blue eyes cryin' in the rain.
Dreamin' Out Loud (Trace Adkins)
Pardon me mister, it was my mistake. I gotta be more careful in a crowd. If you caught me talkin' to someone you can't see - don't mind me - I'm dreamin' out loud. I can't help wondering what did I do wrong to lose the only one I care about. I can't stop living in the used to be - don't mind me , I'm dreamin' out loud.
All I hear is her whisper my name, all I see is her hair tumble down. When I feel the touch of her hand in mine, I find I'm dreamin' out loud.
Well, I'd better be going got some place to be. I know she's somewhere in this town. And until I find her and she comes back to me, I'll be dreamin' out loud...
Nobody Knows (Kevin Sharp)
I pretend I'm glad you went away but these four walls close in more everyday and I'm dying inside and nobody knows it but me. Like a clown I put on a show, the pain is real even if nobody knows and I'm crying inside and nobody knows it but me.
Why didn't I say the things I needed to say ..how could I let my angel get away. Now my world is just tumbling down - I can see it so clearly but you're nowhere around. Nights are lonely, the days are so sad. I just keep thinking about the love that we had. I'm missing you and nobody knows it but me.
How blue can I get you can ask my heart. Just like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart. A million words couldn't say just how I feel. A million years from now you know I'll be loving you still.
Last Date (Conway Twitty)
It's over - our love affair...too late now I find I care. Her sweet love never more I'll share...now she's gone, I'm alone...I was wrong..should have known...took her home after our last date.
I searched for a simple way totell her what I had to say. I kissed her then I turned away...set her free...foolishly..destiny, misery, tradgedy on our last date.
Took my ring from her trembling fingers, brushed the tear from my baby's eye...walked away, didn't know that I'd soon miss her so. I guess I was too young to realize.
So blind I couldn't see how much she really meant to me. And that soon that she would always be on my mind, in my heart..I was blind from the start. Lost her love on our last date.
Sweet Dreams (Patsy Cline)
Sweet dreams of you...every night I go through. Why can't I forget you and start my life anew instead of having sweet dreams about you?
You don't love me it's plain. I should know I'll never wear your ring. I should hate you the whole night through instead of having sweet dreams about you.
Sweet dreams of you...things I know can't come true. Why can't I forget the past - start loving someone new...instead of having sweet dreams about you.
Fools Like Us (another by Trisha)
Call me crazy - call me anything you want. I thought that we had something good. Now I find it was only in my mind. Guess I just misunderstood. It seems forever just came to an end. I thought our time had just begun. I will never really understand why you would turn from love and run.
Fools like me - we never learn. Fools like you are never true.
You go your way, baby, I'll go mine. I'll go crazy like the wind. I will love you for a long, long time. I'll never have your love again.
Fools like me -we never learn. Fools like you are never true.
Three Cigerettes In
An Ashtay (k.d. Lang)
Two cigerettes in an ashtray...my love and I in a small cafe. Stranger came along and everything went wrong now there's three cigerettes in the ashtray.
I watched her take him from me...now his love is no longer my own. Now they have gone and I sit alone and watch one cigerette burn away.
Since I Fell For You (as done by Reba and Aretha)
When you just give love and never get love , you better let love depart. I know that it's so and yet I know I can't get you out of my heart. Oh, you made me leave my happy home...you took my love and now you're gone...since I fell for you.
Love brings such misery and pain...I guess I'll never be the same since I fell for you...
Oh, it's too bad and it's too sad but I 'm in love with you...you loved me and then you snubbed me...but what can I do...I'm still in love with you.
I guess I'll never see the light - I get the blues most every night since I fell for you.
Anymore (Travis Tritt)
I can't hide the way I feel about you anymore. I can't hold the hurt inside, keep the pain out of my eyes anymore. My tears no longer waiting...my resistance ain't that strong. My mind keeps recreating a life with you alone and I'm tired of pretending I don't love you anymore.
Let me make one last appeal to show you how I feel about you 'cause there's no one else I swear holds a candle anywhere next to you. My heart can't take the beating not having you to hold.A small voice keeps repeating deep inside my soul...it says I can't keep pretending I don't love you anymore.
I've got to take the chance or let it pass by if I expect to get on with my life...
'Til I Get It Right (Highway 101)
I'll just keep on falling in love 'til I get it right. Right now I'm like a wounded bird - hungry for the sky. But if I try my wings and try long enough, I'm bound to learn to fly. I'll just keep on falling in love 'til I get it right.
My door to love has opened out more times than in. And I'm either fool or wise enough to open it again. 'Cause I'll never know what's beyond the mountain 'til I reach the other side. So I'll just keep on falling in love 'til I get it right.
If practice makes perfect, then I'm near about as perfect as I'll ever be in my life...so I'll just keep on falling in love 'til I get it right.
He Stopped Lovin' Her Today (George Jones)
He said I'll love you 'til I die. She told him you'll forget in time. I watched the years pass slowly by - she still preyed upon his mind. Kept her picture on his wall - went half crazy now and then. He still loved her through it all hoping she'd come back again.
Found love letters by his bed dated 1962. He had underlined in red every single "I love you". I went to see him just today and I didn't see no tears. All dressed up to go away - first time I'd seen him smile in years.
He stopped loving her today. They placed a wreath upon his door and soon they'll carry him away. He stopped loving her today.
She came back today for one last time and we all wondered if she would. It kept running through my mind - this time he's over her for good.
