Lyrics

Love For The Road

Written By: Bob Drake

I don't wanna go
I only want to let you know
that I wish that I could stay
never go away
but there's traveling to be done
lot of miles I've got to run
till I can come back for more of the love I'm looking for

So give me love for the road, Baby
love for the road tonight
let me lie in your arms
till the morning light

Out there on the road
all alone, it's such a heavy load
and I wish you could be there
there's so much we could share
though I'm leaving you alone
my heart stays here at home
and your heart travels on with me if only in a memory

So give me love for the road, Baby
love for the road tonight
let me lie in your arms
till the morning light

So many roads to be traveled
so many bridges to cross
so many plans can unravel
it's easy to get lost

I need love for the road, Baby
love for the road tonight
let me lie in your arms
till the morning light

Never Got to Sing My Song for You

Written By: Bob Drake

I remember how you looked that first night
glowing in the candle’s dim light
and thought I'd try to tell you in a song
but it seems I couldn't get the timing
we were having trouble rhyming
the song I thought I'd write, but I was wrong

And I never got to sing my song for you
no, you never heard it
never got to tell you that it's true
never got the nerve
wish you'd had the chance to listen
to all the things that we'll be missin'
never got to sing my song for you

There were times I thought I'd try to tell you
times I wished like hell I’d held you
and times when I just didn't know what to do
all the time I heard the music playing
in my mind I still kept saying
there'll be time, but now our time is through

And I never got to sing my song for you
no, you never heard it
never got to tell you that it's true
never got the nerve
I wish you'd had the chance to listen
to all the things that we'll be missin'
never got to sing my song for you

All too soon the candlelight was fading
there was no time for serenading
and soon our only future was the past
well we had so little time together
now I sit and wonder whether
this song I sing is the one for us at last

And I never got to sing my song for you
no, you never heard it
never got to tell you that it's true
never got the nerve
wish you'd had the chance to listen
to all the things that we'll be missin'
never got to sing my song for you
