Lyrics

I Don't Wanna Dream

Written By: Bill Hunt

Don't Wanna Dream

There was a time I would've given you everything I had
I was just happy having you
There was a time I trusted every little promise you made to me
There was a time but not today

You told me you were leaving and you hoped that I would see
You were in love a real long time but you weren't in love with me

I don't wanna dream no more oh I,please someone wake me up right now,can't be real,must be sleeping again
I don't wanna dream no more oh I,I can't feel like this again,cause it hurts,and I don't know what to do,but even without you I must go on

No,it wasn't easy,each day was killing me
And every night I cried myself to sleep
But over time,it got a little bit easier to breathe until I stopped dreaming of you at all.
Then you came and you told me just how happy you have been and you want me to be happy for you but I just don't think I can

I don't wanna dream no more,oh I,someone wake me up right now,can't be real,must be sleeping again. I don't wanna dream no more oh I,I can't feel like this again,cause it hurts and I don't know what to do but even without you I will go on

A funny thing has happened on the path to getting over you,someone came and loved me just for being me,and now I'm learning how to trust again and see the world through brand new eyes and I sing a more beautiful song tonight

I don't wanna dream no more oh I,someone wake me up right now,cause it's love,and I don't wanna miss a thing
I don't wanna dream no more oh I,I want this feeling again and again cause it's real and it's beautiful and it's all thanks to you...that I moved on

With You Again

Written By: Bill Hunt

With You Again

Well it’s another lonely evening and it hurts to be alone
And I find it hard believing that something so small could hurt so long
I’ve been trying for hours to think of what I would say
If by some small chance you’d have the time to be with me today
I’ll keep on waiting,waiting
Cause someday you’ll be mine again

With you again,I’ll keep on waiting,waiting ‘till then
In my heart I believe that we can be together,forever,oh

Well,I know I was wrong and I’m hurting inside
I stare at the phone,I feel so alone
Can’t risk losing my pride
I know she’ll never forgive me,she’s probably found someone new
But if forever’s the day that I’ll have to wait,I’ll wait it for you
I’ll keep on waiting,waiting
Cause someday you’ll be mine again

With you again,I’ll keep on waiting,waiting ‘till then
In my heart I believe that we can be together,forever,oh

Day after day,it gets harder and harder somehow
Night after night,I wonder what she’s (he’s) doing now.....

With you again,I’ll keep on waiting,waiting ‘till then
In my heart I believe that we can be together,forever,oh

Well it’s another lonely evening,I guess they’ll all be the same
What else can I do but wait here for you ‘till I’m with you again
If I could pick up that phone,I’d share my feelings with you
But if you said you’re not sure or that you don’t love me no more,then what would I do
I’ll keep on waiting,waiting,cause someday you’ll be mine again

Yesterday

Written By: Bill Hunt

Yesterday

Hey baby,are you gonna change your mind
And give it one more try or is it over
Hey baby,I don’t want to see you go
But if you do then you should know that I won’t follow
Hey baby,I could never find the words to keep you
I tried and tried but I couldn’t reach you
Hey baby,if I would have tried just a little more
But there was nothing I could do to keep you
From walking out that door

I guess there’s nothing left to say,I couldn’t make you want to stay
There goes the promises we made
I guess you wanted it this way,this is the price I gotta pay
For loving you in vain
I stood and watched you as you walked away....yesterday

Hey baby,how could I know just what you need
When you never talk to me,oh,I was trying
Hey baby,I always did the best I could
But you never understood,feels like I’m dying
Hey baby,yeah,I guess I should have seen this coming
And when I did I guess I should have been running
Hey baby,I’ll remember all the good times that we had
But I never thought that losing you could ever hurt this bad

I guess there’s nothing left to say,I couldn’t make you want to stay
There goes the promises we made
I guess you wanted it this way,this is the price I gotta pay
For loving you in vain
I stood and watched you as you walked away....yesterday

I've Got Everything

Written By: Bill Hunt

I’ve Got Everything (but I don’t have you)

Well,you left me yesterday,you said there was nothing left to say
And as you’re walking out the door,you said I’m not the man you knew before
Fancy clothes,well,they’re alright but they won’t keep me warm at night
I would check my stocks and bonds each day while my real treasure slipped away
All these years together I couldn’t see,you didn’t want my money,you wanted me

Take my money,take my cars,they won’t get me very far
Take this Rolex watch of mine,no one to see,who needs the time
Take my house,my phone and all,the one I want will never call
All my happiness turned blue,I’ve got everything but I don’t have you

You said you remember better times when we didn’t have a dime
“There was no business lunch at three,all we had was you and me
Have so much love I want to share,you wouldn’t know cause you weren’t there
Guess you won’t mind if you lose me because the love I gave was free”
And up until that moment,I couldn’t see,how rich and how poor a man could be

Take my money,take my cars,they won’t get me very far
Take this Rolex watch of mine,no one to see,who needs the time
Take my house,my phone and all,the one I want will never call
All my happiness turned blue,I’ve got everything but I don’t have you

God Bless Our Love

Written By: Bill Hunt

God Bless Our Love

I'm sitting here trying to write the perfect song,to apologize for all that I've done wrong
I haven't always been the best I could,haven't always done the things I should but I'll tell you now I'm glad that you're around
And I know we've had our share of ups and downs
but I want you to know every time you cried a part of me inside just died and I want to keep you here so safe and sound

No,it's not been an easy ride but with you here by my side we made it through alive
There's so much that I want to say but I'll keep it simple babe,at the end of every day,there's one thing that I pray

God bless our love,God bless our love,keep our love alive,through the years and all our lives,let us never waste a single day gone by
God bless our love,God bless our love,we put our lives and trust in you,our hearts our fears our worries,too and with your love we'll know what we should do,God bless our love

I had given up on life for quite a while but it was you who helped me when I lost my smile
When I thought no one could understand the way I felt or who I am,you showed me that I had a place to be,where I was loved just for being me,the words aren't there it's just too tough how can you write about that kind of love when a thank you isn't nearly good enough

Once you asked me why I loved you,but the words weren't coming out of me,to sum it up so easily
But a song can only go so far,it's everything you do and say,it's everything you are,it's everything you are

God bless our love,God bless our love,keep our love alive,through the years and all our lives,let us never waste a single day gone by
God bless our love,God bless our love,we put our lives and trust in you,our hearts our fears our worries,too and with your love we'll know what we should do get through,God bless our love

Everything that we face,everything that we fear,everything that we dream of
Every day every year,our lives our laughter our tears,we pray to you to bless our love,please bless our love

God bless our love,God bless our love,keep our love alive,through the years and all our lives,let us never waste a single day gone by
God bless our love,God bless our love,we put our lives and trust in you,our hearts our fears our worries,too and with your love we'll know what we should do,God bless our love

I'm sitting here trying to write the perfect song but you,you were the notes all along
