Lyrics

For You

Written By: Anne Deming

Come and lie here beside me where there’s only room for you
You could say that it feels different and definitely long overdue
You feel as if you belong here so I can excuse the pain
Needing this one last moment like a drug into my vein
Can’t bear to see you leaving me, stay awake to hear you breathing with me
I stumble through the night to you, I wait until the light for you
I’ll pretend to be strong here so you can wish that you were like me
And I’ll pretend to enjoy this as I’m standing here in agony
You’re hiding your feelings and I’m hiding my love
You’re breaking my heart and I can’t get enough

Crawl

Written By: Anne Deming

Are you lonesome is it tearing you apart?
Are you trying to figure this all out?
You look hungry I know that looks can kill
Come on taste me you’ve broken down my will
I like the way you look at me I like the way you make me crawl
I like the things you do to me I like you just the way you are
You seem tired come rest your weary head
Take shelter on my burning bed
Swift and silent I won’t make a sound
I’ll be gentle now let me hold you down
Love destroys you I see it in your eyes, you deny this but it’s something you can’t hide

Love Is Never Something To Betray

Written By: Anne Deming

I drove past the river down the highway searching for your car along the road
And I kept awake just thinking about you, the heat between us could have chased away the cold
With a smile on my face I started crying as the hope that slept within me started dying
I’m tempted by the way you gaze upon me but fate was never kind to me and you
Because my heart belongs to another there’s nothing left that could have been for to me and you
And life is full of chances worth the taking but not worth all the hearts that I’d be breaking
I could have loved you for a lifetime if you could carry me away
Sad but true my heart is already taken and love is never something to betray
No love is never something to betray
It’s been four weeks and still I dream about you knowing that I made the better choice
I love the man who sleeps beside me but every now and then I hear the echo of your voice
Calling out to me it’s like a haunting filling me with need and I start wanting
The man I love was all I needed until you opened up my eyes
Now my love is that much stronger but I’ll remember you until the day I die

I'm Keeping the Truck

Written By: Anne Deming

We did it right we fell in love we got married we bought a house we even bought a truck at first I laughed and then I cried there are days that it seems something just ain’t right but I will always love you no matter what we go through but if I had to choose when we run outta luck babe I’m keeping the truck. It wasn’t easy might not be fair but I got places to go and that truck can take me anyway it’s strong it’s tough and it drives real good and even when I’m gone I know exactly what’s underneath that hood I will always love you no matter what we go through but if I had to choose when we run outta luck babe I’m keeping the truck I’m still in love and I feel alive I got a full tank a V8 and four wheel drive I will always love you no matter what we go through but if I had to choose when we run outta luck babe I’m keeping the truck but if I had to choose when we run outta luck babe I’m keeping the truck

She cries for me

Written By: Anne Deming

There are times when I have been wrapped around the bottle there are times that I have been on bended knee. In my time of great need in my desperation she was there singing softly to me well I know I’m weak and my soul is weary and I know she cries for me. In the dark of the night I was cold and I was lonely I was in the ocean looking for a shore from the dark from the night came my true salvation when I thought I couldn’t take it anymore well I know I’m weak and my soul is weary and I know she cries for me well I couldn’t walk but then she carried me to heaven so I didn’t have to walk alone my tears have dried my heart is open I am drowning in the glory I’ve been shown. We didn’t talk we didn’t touch but then I felt her arms around me I was sheltered from the storm and from the cold my broken bones my heavy heart all my sinning and my sorrow didn’t matter to the sister of my heart well I know I’m weak my soul is weary and I know she cries for me she cries for me she cries for me she cries for me.

Don't lie to me

Written By: Anne Deming

Don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are you lying for? I can tell you’re lying the way your eyes keep sliding farther from my gaze and there’s no use trying you know I’m just not buying anything you say don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are you lying for? Don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are you lying for? I bet your heart is racing I can see your hands are shaking it’s a heavy toll and there’s no use escaping the end that you’re facing as you dig yourself that hole don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are you lying for don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are you lying for? Aren’t you tired of all the lying I’m so tired of all the crying is it so hard to tell the truth better for me better for you I know this can’t be easy you lie so prettily even I’m impressed but I think that you love me and I’m hoping you can see I’m watching what you do next don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are you lying for? Don’t lie to me don’t lie to me no more what are lying for? What are you lying for? What are you lying for?

Don't wanna make my mama cry

Written By: Anne Deming

Well I’ve made my mistakes and I’ve had my share of heartaches I’ve wondered if I’m strong enough did I try hard enough? When I’m about to lose my cool I think of one simple rule would it make my mama cry? Would it make my daddy angry? Could I hold my head up high when all the fingers were pointed right at me I’m running out of time my reputation’s on the line when I’ve got to decide well I wonder would it make my mama cry? I’ve always tried to do my best and not worry about the rest I’ve been tempted to grab an easy win I’ve even thought about giving in when I’m about to lose my cool I think of one simple rule would it make my mama cry? Would it make my daddy angry? Could I hold my head up high when all the fingers are pointed right at me I’m running out of time my reputation’s on the line when I’ve got to decide well I wonder would it make my mama cry? I’ve got to be scared to ever be brave from the cradle to the grave Would it make my mam cry? Would it make my daddy angry? Could I hold my head up high when all the fingers are pointed right at me I’m running out of time my reputation’s on the line when I’ve got to decide well I wonder would it make my mama cry? Would it make my daddy angry? Could I hold my head up high when all the fingers were pointed right at me I’m running out of time my reputations on the line when I’ve got to decide well I wonder would it make my mama cry? Don’t want to make my mama cry.

I'm sinkin' in

Nowhere to run

Written By: Anne Deming

Nowhere to run nowhere to hide I see darkness on every side and there are mountains I cannot climb and there is heartache that I cannot leave behind all this beauty is such a mess I am overcome and I am restless but I keep moving on I’m headed west I feel the peace inside with every sunset and I see trouble everywhere I turn I make the same mistakes I never learn so teach me teach me how to believe that everything I need is all around me all this beauty is such a mess I am overcome and I am restless so I keep moving on I’m headed west I fell the peace inside well I stopped running and I turned around I woke the stars and I kissed the ground all this beauty is such a mess I am overcome and I am restless but I keep moving on I’m headed west I feel the peace inside with every sunset I feel the peace inside with every sunset.
