Tough Love

Written By: Charlie Hutto

Tough Love:

Verse 1:
I was fightin mad in the top of the ninth, when daddy made me ride the pine
for calling that boy a "son of a" you know what
and I was in a rage and threatened to leave, the night he took away my keys
cause he found that case of beer there in my truck

PC:
yea I was determined, to be my own man
but daddy stood his ground, and said son "someday you'll understand"...that

Chorus:
Sometimes Love is saying no
Setting your limits, and holding strong to all the things you know to be true
Yea sometimes love is putting up a fight, and standing up for what is right
and trusting in that voice inside of you
yea it can pick you up, kick you down, and it can call your bluff
and sometimes love is tough

Verse 2:
Well I'm older now, got a boy of my own, he's just a squirt but he thinks he's grown
and daddy just loves to watch him give me grief
I guess this is my payback, for all the hell I gave my dad.
cause i know his temper comes from me

PC:
yea he'll yell and cuss and throw a fit, and wanna go to blows
but I stay strong like daddy did ,cause I learned long ago....that

Chorus:
Sometimes Love is saying no
setting your limits, and holding strong to all the things that you know to be true
Yea sometimes love is putting up a fight, and standing up for what is right
and trusting in that voice inside of you
yea It can pick you up, kick you down, and it can call your bluff
yea sometimes love is tough

Bridge:
It ain't always easy,
and it don't come free
but I'm the man I am today
cause my daddy he believed...yea that

Chorus:
Sometimes Love is saying no
setting your limits, and holding strong to all the things that you know to be true
Yea sometimes love is putting up a fight, and standing up for what is right
and trusting in that voice inside of you
yea It'll pick you up, kick you down, and it can call your bluff
and sometimes love is tough

Forever Was Just Too Long

Written By: Charlie Hutto

Forever was just too long

Verse Ideas
I still recall your satin gown, and the lillies in your hair
as the organ played our favorite gospel song
we vowed to have and to hold and sealed it with a prayer
but forever was just too long

We pledged from that day forward, we'd give all we could give
through sickness and through health we'd stay strong
and we promised to stay faithful, as long as we shall live
but forever was just too long

Chorus:
we swore to comfort and to keep
to give much more than we recieve
to always put each other first
through the best and through the worst..yea
Our love was made to last
but now that love is gone
I guess forever was just too long

Verse 3:
Tonight I hold the pillow, where your head use to lay
and try to figure out where we went wrong
cause we vowed to honor and to trust, until our dying day
but forever was just too long

Chorus:
We swore to comfort and to keep
to give much more than we recieve
to always put each other first
through the best and through the worst..yea
Our love was made to last
but now that love is gone
I guess forever was just too long
I guess forever was just too long.

Live for Today

Written By: Charlie Hutto


Verse 1:
Life is a game that we all play
making our moves as the days go by
We only get one chance with fate
so we have to get it right

and time only moves in one direction
There's no fast forward and no rewind
So spend it giving love and affection
cause you have to leave it all behind
yes you have to leave it all behind.......so

Chorus
I'm gonna laugh a little longer...and
I'm gonna love a little stronger
I'm gonna let go of the past
toss the pain away
not worry about tomorrow
I'm gonna live for today

Verse 3:
I want to give without hesitation
be thankful for the ways I've been blessed
forgive with no reservations
and live without regret
yea I wanna live without regret....so

Chorus
I'm gonna laugh a little longer
I'm gonna love a little stronger
I'm gonna let go of the past
toss the pain away
not worry about tomorrow
I'm gonna live for today

Chorus:
I'm gonna laugh a little longer
I'm gonna love a little stronger

Chorus
I'm gonna laugh a little longer
I'm gonna love a little stronger
I'm gonna let go of the past
toss the pain away
not worry about tomorrow
I'm gonna live for today
