Temporary Lovers

Written By: Annie Ortmeier

Temporary Lovers Copyright 2009
Annie Ortmeier

He owned the room
He didn’t even try
She didn’t even notice
She held every eye
He caught her attention
With his easy smile
She’s acting tough
But she’s coy and shy
By the end of the night
When it’s closing time they’ll still be

CHORUS:
Falling into each others’
Arms again
Fighting for the absence
Of loneliness
Holding onto the notion
They’re not more than friends
Temporary lovers [are]
Constant again

She says she’s not hurtin’
But she knows it’s a lie
He wrestles the urges
To break down and cry
After one night together
They swore that they found
What they had going
Was coming around

Together they find
A way to get by
Somewhere between
Lovers and friends
Easing the pain
Of that heart ache again

You're Gonna Lose Me

Written By: Annie Ortmeier

You’re gonna lose me
Lose me for good
If you can’t treat me
Treat me like you should
Cause I won’t stand back and wait
For you to make the call
You’re gonna lose me
If you don’t give your all

Love sparked the fire
And our passion fueled the flame
But that wasn’t enough for you so
So we went our separate ways

We filled up on dreams and time
Put between us miles and space
But all progress made was lost
When we came face to face

So we cannot deny now
What we’ve known for so long
The heart wants what the heart wants
So together’s where we belong

I’m through beating round the bush
And I’m tired of playing fair
If you really love me baby
You’ll love me anywhere
Don’t Lose Me

Jesus Hold My Hand

Written By: Annie Ortmeier

Today begins
Like any other day
But it’s the last time
That it remains that way
Cause standing before me
Is a prayer that’s been answered
And a new life begins here
That will live ever after

Jesus hold my hand
While I’m taking hers
Let me not forget
Just how much she’s worth
From this day forward
I promise to love
Honor and cherish
This child of yours
But I’m only human
I’m gonna need some help
So Jesus hold my hand
While I’m taking hers

I can’t believe
I’m really standing here
I can’t catch my breath
But I can’t stop these tears
My knees are weak
But my heart beats strong
Cause I know I’ve found
Right where I belong

Jesus hold my hand
While I’m taking his
Let me not forget
Just how much he’s worth
From this day forward
I promise to love
Honor and cherish
This child of yours
But I’m only human
I’m gonna need some help
So Jesus hold my hand
While I’m taking his

I know I’m not perfect
I know I’m not perfect
Tho I try to follow your lead
But in your love
And with this love
For a moment we could be

Jesus hold my hand
While I’m taking hers
Let me not forget
Just how much he’s worth
From this day forward
I promise to love
Honor and cherish
This child of yours
But we’re only human
We’re gonna need your help
So Jesus hold my hand
While I’m taking his (hers)
