Lyrics

Don't Wait Up for Me

Written By: Mitch Hammer & Diann Hammer

(verse 1) One night she said I’m leavin’, I want more than you can give
I love you and the children, but I need some time to live
I told her we’re a family, I want her in my life
She said I need to be much more than a mother and a wife

(verse 2) Her distant eyes looked past me, she didn’t care who she left behind
There was nothing I could say or do, to make her change her mind
The next day after working hard, I saw her letter on the bed
I never thought this day would come, I must have been too blind

(Chorus) She said, I’m thirty thousand feet up high, don’t wait up for me
I’m sick of spending every night, just watchin’ the T.V.
I won’t be coming back again, there’s a world I have to see
So tell the kids I had to leave, and don’t wait up for me

(verse 3) Each day the kids are askin’, will momma be back tonight?
I tell them maybe someday soon, don’t worry she’s alright
And when they finally fall asleep, I tuck them in their bed
I go outside and see the stars, rememberin’ what she said

(chorus) I’m thirty thousand feet up high, don’t wait up for me
I’m sick of spending every night, just watchin’ the T.V.
I won’t be coming back again, there’s a world I have to see
So tell the kids I had to leave, and don’t wait up for me

[bridge] Well go ahead, run away, as for me, my minds’ made up, I’m here to stay

(chorus) Thirty thousand feet up high, that’s where you want to be
The kids and I are doing fine, one happy family
Snugglin’ on the couch at night, watchin’ our T.V.
I’m doing fine and you should know, I now have custody
So don’t wait up for me
Don’t wait up for me
Don’t wait up for me
Don’t wait up for me

Sunset View

Written By: Mitch Hammer & Diann Hammer

(Chorus) I’m sittin’ on the deck, of the Lady Di
Cruising on the Chesapeake Bay
Steamin’ hot java, warmin’ my hands
Waiting for a brand new day

The sun is-a-climbin’, the moon drifts away
The water, . . . a cobalt blue
A warm breeze is blowing and I see God’s touch
As I take in this sunrise view
As I take in this sunrise view

(verse 1) People pass me by, on their way to work
Never look up to see the sky
The day is still early, but they’re already late
To a job they never question why

(verse 2) When the workday ends, they all run aboard
twenty dollars clenched tight in their hands
So I take them out, to the water’s edge
Where the sky melts into the land

(verse 3) Soon they got to go back, so many things to do
They just don’t have the time to wait
I turn around, and head for shore
They’re already running late

(Chorus) I’m sittin’ on the deck, of the Lady Di
Cruising on the Chesapeake Bay
Steamin’ hot java, warmin’ my hands
Waiting for the end of the day

The sun is-a-fadin’, a stillness sets in
The water, . . . a cobalt blue
A warm breeze is blowing and I see God’s touch
As I take in this sunset view
As I take in this sunset view

[Bridge] I go down below and grab me a beer
Ready for the night to draw near
Packing up tight, stowing my gear
As the seagulls slowly disappear

(Chorus) I’m sittin’ on the deck, of the Lady Di
Cruising on the Chesapeake Bay
Steamin’ hot java, warmin’ my hands
Waitin’ for the end of the day

The sun is-a-fadin’, a stillness sets in
The water, . . . a cobalt blue
A warm breeze is blowing and I see God’s touch
As I take in this sunset view
As I take in this sunset view
Just taking in this sunset view
Just taking in this sunset view
