Lyrics

After Twenty Years

Written By: Andrew Dawson

After Twenty Years

Verse 1
After twenty years
After twenty thousand tears
After all the things that we’ve been through
Would you take my hand?
Would you do it all again?
Cause baby I don’t have to think it through
I’d spend twenty million years with you

Verse 2
After all this time
Now you tell me that I’ve been blind
So many things I didn’t see
Won’t you help me girl,
Try to understand your world?
And give you back a reason to believe
Spend twenty million years with me

Chorus
Now you’re not sure
Now you don’t think that you care
Now you’re not sure
That life’s been very fair
Now you’re not sure
That what your heart believed is really true
After twenty years of me and you

Verse 3
Let’s go up to bed
Let the slumber clear our heads
Drink our coffee in the morning sun
Breathe the air in deep
think about what we should keep
And talk about the meaning of our love
after twenty years have come and gone

Chorus (Outro)
If you’re not sure
If you don’t think that you care
If you’re not sure
That love's been really fair
if you’re not sure
That what your heart believed is really true
Baby I believe I do
After twenty years, you know I do
I still believe in you

Longing For Me

Written By: Andrew Dawson

Chorus
Whisper soft and slowly
Say the words clear and make me see
Hold me in a way that my heart knows your heart
has been longing for me

Verse 1
these days I’m spending way too many nights out on the road
with a baby on the way and one already that’s in tow
I need the overtime our money gets so tight
As we try to get the things we should to raise our family right
in the evening I will call her on the phone ,
If just to tell her I’m so sorry that I leave her there alone
and on the line she says she’s fine she’s waiting there for me
and when I get home she says there’s only one thing that she needs will you please …

Chorus

Verse 2

there are so many things I think that she deserves to have

things that lesser women take for granted and I get mad

I guess there will come a time when money is not so tight

and I'll dream of then but now I'll
pray to God with all my might

I 'll bring her something small it’s never much

and she always acts surprised and seems so genuinely touched

but then she says your arms your face your mouth your voice is what I need

and to hold on to this feeling that your love will never leave so please just:

Chorus
