Write Me A Song

Album: Far From Over (2001)
  • Kelly is raising her son
    His dad left just after the birth
    Now she's living on child support checks
    I guess that's all that man was worth

    She said I just need a man who will love me
    But they all just want one night of sin
    I know our life could be better
    I just don't know where I should begin

    She said write me a song
    One that makes all the girls cry
    And the old women swoon
    At the sound of my tune
    And the hearts of the lonely will fly
    Yeah, they'll fly

    Beth, she sings straight from the heart
    She's hidden her tracks very well
    But these days she's falling apart
    And it makes me feel just like hell

    She says, boy, you can't imagine my life
    The death and the drugs and the pain
    And though I keep running
    I just can't seem to break from these chains

    She said write me a song
    Fill it all up with words
    Like brilliant and heavenly
    Make it sound just like me
    Just like the first time I love you was heard

    And now write me a song
    One that makes all the girls cry
    And the old women swoon
    At the sound of my tune
    And the hearts of the lonely will fly

    We're all feeding our lonely
    Like it might go away
    The doors of heaven swing wide
    If we just find the right words to say

    She said write me a song
    Fill it all up with words
    Like brilliant and heavenly
    Make it sound just like me
    Just like the first time I love you was heard

    And now write me a song
    One that makes all the girls cry
    And the old women swoon
    At the sound of my tune
    And the hearts of the lonely will fly

    Yeah, fly
    She said write me a song
    She said write me a song
    She said write me a song

  • Mercedies from Soldotna, AkThat is a great way to mask all the emotions and feelings of people. I love how the song makes you feel like you can picture the people that he mentioned.
