Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

BandCountry

We're a couple of sisters born and raised in Texas now living half way across the world from each other but still pursuing our dream of becoming successful songwriters. Our songs have primarily a country flavor but sometimes we have to let inspiration be our guide and take the music where it will.

Biography

Lori, who is currently a missionary in Africa, has been writing songs since age 11 and Anni didn't decide to jump on the bandwagon until age 30 or so. Some of our songs are influenced by our experiences growing up in a small town in Texas - others are just working it to the fullest extent when a great hook comes our way.

She Still Calls Texas Home

Written By: Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

She Still Calls Texas Home
© 1997 lyrics & melody by Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

There’s a Lone Star sunset burning in her soul
She’s a thousand miles from Abilene but she still calls Texas home

She misses her mama – she misses her daddy too
She misses Sharon and the crazy things that best friends do
I know she loves me – I know she loves the kids
But I don’t know how to help her when she gets like this

After fifteen years from time to time the tears still flow
That’s when I know she’s got Texas on her mind
There’s a Lone Star sunset burning in her soul
She’s a thousand miles from Abilene but she still calls Texas home

It’s worse in the wintertime – I know she hates the cold
And you’ve never felt a chill ‘til you feel this wind blow
She tries to hide it – she says everything’s alright
But it’s hard to miss that lonesome distance in her eyes

After fifteen years from time to time the tears still flow
That’s when I know she’s got Texas on her mind
There’s a Lone Star sunset burning in her soul
She’s a thousand miles from Abilene but she still calls Texas home

She left it all – everyone she loved – everything she knew
She swears she’d do it all again
She left a Lone Star sunset for a life with me
She’s here in Iowa and it cuts me to the bone
But she still calls Texas home

Time Take Your Time

Written By: Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

Time Take Your Time
© 2006 lyrics & melody by Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

It borders on crazy – undeniable control
Nothing short of amazing how you bid the tide to roll
The sunrise and sunset await your command
The moon changes phases when you wave your hand
Even the seasons heed your beck and call
Still I keep on believin’ I’ll get you to stall

Time - take your time – what’s the hurry – what’s the rush
I’m in this perfect moment – let me own it – just this once
Stay for a spell – hear my plea – hear me call
Time can’t you tell – I need you to crawl
Just this one time - take your time

It goes without saying - I’ve squandered my fair share
But I was mistaken when I thought it was mine to spare
Relentless, impartial and just in your cause
For no one you falter - for no one you pause
If you’re so high and mighty with powers that heal
Then how can it be you can’t just stand still

Time - take your time – what’s the hurry – what’s the rush
I’m in this perfect moment – let me own it – just this once
Stay for a spell – hear my plea – hear me call
Time can’t you tell – I need you to crawl
Just this one time

Show some compassion – for once be a friend
Don’t let it happen – don’t let this end

Time - take your time – what’s the hurry – what’s the rush
I’m in this perfect moment – let me own it – just this once
Stay for a spell – hear my plea – hear me call
Time can’t you tell – I need you to crawl
Just this one time - take your time
Just this one time – take your time

Save Me A Place

Written By: Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

Save Me A Place ©2005

lyrics & melody by Anni Lichty & Lori Earles

How do I say goodbye to such a precious part of me
Your burdens here on earth now lay aside
Your eyes forever shine deep in the heart of me
To slowly dry the endless tears I've cried

Looks like it's your time to fly
A beautiful Angel's been called home
My sweet boy I wish you didn't have to leave us
Until I see your smiling face - save me a place by Jesus

I know the sweetest gift was just to be here next to you
I never knew that I could love so much
Your gentle spirit lives in every heart so blessed by you
Your smile brightens every life you touched

But now it's your time to fly
A beautiful Angel's been called home
My sweet boy I wish you didn't have to leave us
Until I see your smiling face - save me a place by Jesus

Until I see your smiling face - save me a place
Sitting at His feet - Angel's singing sweet
I'll be by your side - tears will all be dried
Until I see His shining face
Won't you save me a place by Jesus
