Lyrics

Forever is a Long Long Time

Written By: Lana Rae Lacroix

WHEN I SAID I DO, I THOUGHT I WOULD FOREVER
YAH I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD ALWAYS BE TOGETHER
BUT I DIDN’T KNOW THAT YOU WERE GONNA BREAK MY HEART
YAH THE FLAME IS OUT OUR LOVE IS IN THE DARK

WHEN I SAID I DO I THOUGHT OUR LOVE WAS TRUE
BUT I DIDN’T KNOW THAT YOU WERE GONNA MAKE ME BLUE
WHEN I SAID I DO I THOUGHT I WOULD FOREVER
BUT FOREVER I S A LONG, LONG TIME
YAH FOREVER IS A LONG, LONG TIME

WHEN YOU SAID I DO I THOUGHT I HEARD COMMITMENT
GOOD INTENTIONS FLEW I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE LOVE WENT
WHEN YOU TIED THE KNOT YOU THOUGHT YOU’LD TIE ME DOWN..
YAH YOU THOUGHT YOU’LD HAVE A MOTHER AND A MAID AROUND

FOREVER MEANT FOREVER…WHEN I SAID I DO
BUT I FOUND OUT THAT IT WAS JUST AN EMPTY WORD TO YOU
THOUGHT YOU’LD HAVE YOUR FREEDOM
AND TREAT ME LIKE A FOOL
YAH ALL THIS TIME YOU THOUGHT YOU’LD HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO……

Trucker's Song

Written By: Lana Rae Lacroix

I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS LITTLE SITTING ON MY DADDY’S KNEE
SAID DADDY GOT SOME QUESTIONS COULD YOU ANSWER THEM FOR ME
WHAT GOES ON WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT AT NIGHT
SAID DADDY WON’T YOU TELL ME WHERE DO LONELY PEOPLE GO
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FOLKS WHO WANDER STREETS WITHOUT A HOME
OR THE OTHERS ON THE HIGHWAY WITH THEIR THUMB OUT FOR A RIDE

ONLY THE TRUCKERS KNOW
WHAT GOES DOWN WHEN THE LIGHTS GO LOW
ONLY THE TRUCKERS KNOW
WHO’S HANGING ‘ROUND…WHO’S SHADES ARE DOWN…WHO’S LEAVING TOWN
ONLY THE TRUCKERS KNOW…ONLY THE TRUCKERS KNOW

SEE TRUCKER’S GET TO SEE THINGS WE ALL MISS WHEN WE’RE ASLEEP
THEY’RE ROLLING DOWN THE HIGHWAY WHILE WE’RE BUSY COUNTING SHEEP
THEY KNOW HOW MANY STARS LIGHTEN UP THAT MIDNIGHT SKY
THEY KNOW JUST WHERE THE HIGHWAY STARTS AND WHERE IT’S GONNA END
THEY KNOW WHO’S LOST AND LONELY AND WHO’S LOOKING FOR A FRIEND
THEY KNOW HOW MANY TEARS…ARE GONNA MAKE THAT FULL MOON CRY
