Lyrics

Hold On

I like it when you loved me, and you didn't have to think about it

Like every breath you'd take, or every simple move you'd make

It all came naturally, now you remind yourself to breathe

I like it when you kiss me like we'd never ever kiss again

And you'd take my breath away, with every word you'd say

A thousand kisses on your lips, now there's good bye in every kiss

Hold on, baby, hold on

Hold onto what we've got, let go of what it's not

And hold on, baby hold on

I like it when you held me like you'd never let me go again

And the whole world went right by, days turned into nights

We were lost in love's ebb and flow, now your drowning in the undertow

Remember when we used to dance in the middle of the room

With my arms wrapped around your neck, listening to your breath

We'd shuffle step in time, now your stumbling at the finish line

Hold on, baby, hold on

Hold onto what we've got, let go of what it's not

And hold on, baby hold on

Maybe we won't fight anymore, maybe we won't cry any more

Maybe we won't die anymore, hold on

Baby, hold on Hold onto what we've got,

let go of what it's not And hold on,

Baby hold on

Lyrics

Don’t Waste Your Breath On Me

 

It’s what you want till you don’t want it anymore

It’s what you need till you are walkin out the door

Oh baby I’ve heard all your stories before

Don’t waste your breath on me.

 

You’ve got it all til it ain’t enough

You’re all full up baby till you’ve got half a cup

I know she used to have all the right stuff

Don’t waste your breath on me

 

Cause love is what you make it

You can’t feign, you can’t fake it

Once it’s got you, you can’t shake it

Take it from me.

 

It’s alright, till it all goes bad

It’s what you want baby, till it becomes

What you had

Oh I know that you’re sorry and your sad

Don’t waste your breath on me

 

 

Cause love is what you make it

You can’t feign, you can’t fake it

Once it’s got you, you can’t shake it

Take it from me.

 

It’s what you want ill you don’t want it anymore,

It’s what you need till you are walkin out the door

Oh baby I’ve heard all your stories before

Don’t waste your breath on me.

Lyrics

Send Me Back My Man

Send me back my man

If he comes to you

Don't take him by the hand

With your beauty and your youth

Tell him I love him so

Please, let him go

Send me back my man

Don't let him kiss you there

Don't let him whisper all the secrets old lover's share

As bad as he can be

Please send him back to me

His hearts' a drifter he gets lost from time to time

If you should find him won't you remind him

Send me back my man

Don't let him hold you tight

Help him to understand

His baby's lonely tonight

Please send him back to me

Save yourself this misery

 

Send me back my man

Send me back my man

Lyrics

Be Free

I am nothing, I am no one

To this world, I'm dead and gone

I am forsaken, I am forgotten

Earthly treasures have I none

And when my time comes,

I know, I am gonna rise up and go

Where I'm gonna be free,

Gonna be free

Gonna drop these chains binding me

I'm gonna be free,

Gonna be free

Jesus cool my brow, and wash my feet

I am a shadow,

I am a whisper

I am the least of these

Not born to power,

or born to privilege

Just dyin in my mediocrity

And when my time comes,

I know, I am gonna rise up and go

Where I'm gonna be free,

Gonna be free

Gonna drop these chains binding me

I'm gonna be free,

Gonna be free

Jesus cool my brow, and wash my feet

Lyrics

Love of You

If I was a flower,

I would be bloomin

If I was a juke box,

I would be boomin

If I was honey

I would be drippin

If I’s a dreamer

I'd be trippin,

For the Love of You

For the Love of You

If I was a river

I would be rollin,

If I was a heart oh baby

I'd be stolen 

If I was a mountain you could move me

If I was a word it would be groovy

For the Love of You

For the Love of You 

If I was a question it would be

What in world has come over me (someone tell me please)

If I was a kiss,

I'd bee a deep one

I'd be a promise baby

If you'd keep one

If I was a kite I would fly higher,

than any drug, a real flyer,

For the Love of You

For the Love of You

 If I was a peach, I would be juicy

If I was a sight

Oh I'd be something to see

If I was art I'd be graffiti, 

If I was crazy

It would be completely

For the Love of You

For the Love of You

Lyrics

Gone, Gone, Gone (Karla Anderson) (Karla Anderson/Lefty Was Right Music) SOCAN ©2005

I know you said, you'll love me forever

Maybe you wished that you would know how

I thought you were sweet, I thought you were clever

But I know better now

It's clear to me after hanging so long,

All the love, that we never had

Is gone, gone, gone

The love that we never had is gone

I'm under your skin,

While she's in your bed

You're thinkin maybe baby you love me instead

You say that this love is a tie you can't sever

But I know better now

It's clear to me after hanging so long,

All the love, that we never had

Is gone, gone, gone

All the love that we never had is gone

Instrumental break

The heart that's left hanging

Gets so strong, strong, strong

Oh the love we never had

The love we never had

The love we never had, is gone

What Else Can I Do? (Karla Anderson) (Karla Anderson/Lefty Was Right Music) SOCAN ©2004

What else can I do

But bring a blanket for you

To wrap around your shoulders

Or put upon your knees

Try to keep the cold away

Keep your heart from turning blue

What else can I do

But bring a blanket for you

What else can I do

But lend my shoulder to you

To bury your head in

And let the teardrops roll

I'll try to hold your head up high

When the rest of you is falling through

What else can I do

But lend my shoulder to you

I have tears for you

When another tear won't fall

When you feel like dying

Or feel nothing at all

When there's nothing left we can do or say

I'll pray

What else can I do

But share the silence with you

When every word has been said

And every piece of ground has been turned

Nothing makes any sense

And no answers are coming through

What else can I do

But share the silence with you

I have tears for you

When another tear won't fall

When you feel like dying

Or feel nothing at all

When there's nothing left that

We can do or say

I'll pray

What else can I do

But bring a blanket for you
