You Can't Have Everything

Album: The Reason Why (2010)
  • The driveway winds up the hill
    Through the wildflower fields
    Where the kids like to play
    There's a little creek by the willow tree
    Oh yes, it's a beautiful place

    We have the family photograph
    The house, the life, the dream
    You're love's the only thing missing here
    Well, I guess you can't have everything

    We don't talk anymore
    You leave your ring in the drawer
    Like it don't mean a thing
    The silence crawls down the lonely halls
    That weep for what used to be

    We have the family photograph
    The house, the life, the dream
    You're love's the only thing missing here
    Well, I guess you can't have everything

    We have the family photograph
    The house, the life, the dream
    You're love's the only thing missing here
    Well, I guess you can't have everything Writer/s: JIMI WESTBROOK, KAREN FAIRCHILD, KIMBERLY SCHLAPMAN, KIMBERLY B. ROADS, PHILLIP SWEET, WAYNE KIRKPATRICK
