THAT, I BELIEVE

THAT, I BELIEVE By Linda Craig
COPYRIGHT MAY 2009

DID YOU KNOW IT SNOWED IN BAGHDAD TODAY?
AND I WAS JUST TWO MILES AWAY.
FIRST TIME IT SNOWED IN A HUNDRED YEARS,
AND IT RAINED HOPE AND CALMED THE FEARS
SO I CALLED TONIGHT TO TELL YOU, ANYWAY,
YES, I’M ALRIGHT, MOM, I’M OKAY.
KIDS SMILED AND DANCE, SOME CALLED IT FATE.
BUT ME, I THINK THAT GOD WAS HERE TODAY.

I WANT TO BELIEVE GOD IS LOOKING DOWN
I WANT TO BELIEVE SPREADING HOPE ALL AROUND
I WANT TO BELIEVE IN WHAT IT MEANS TO ME
AND I’LL SEE YOU ALL SOON
I BELIEVE
THAT, I BELIEVE

SORRY, MOM I MUST HANG UP THE PHONE.
YOU KNOW I’M NEVER HERE ALONE.
YES, I THINK I HEARD WE’LL BE HOME SOON
AND JUST REMEMBER MOM, YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU.

I WANT TO BELIEVE GOD IS LOOKING DOWN
I WANT TO BELIEVE SPREADING HOPE ALL AROUND
I WANT TO BELIEVE IN WHAT IT MEANS TO ME
AND I’LL SEE YOU ALL SOON
I BELIEVE
THAT, I BELIEVE

GOOD THINGS ALWAYS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT,
DID YOU KNOW IT SNOWED IN BAGHDAD TODAY?

YOU GO FIRST

Written By: LINDA CRAIG

YOU GO FIRST BY LINDA CRAIG WORDARTIST55@AOL.COM Copyright March 2009

YOU GO FIRST, SHE DARED, AS I FOLLOWED HER THERE
TO THE EDGE OF THE OLD SWIMMING HOLE.
AS I JUMPED IN I KNEW THAT MY HEART JUMPED IN TOO
WITH A LOVE THAT WOULD NEVER GROW COLD.
YOU GO FIRST, I SAID, AT OUR FIRST HIGH SCHOOL DANCE
WE MADE SUCH AN ELEGANT PAIR
MUSIC SPILLED OUT THE DOOR, AS WE TOOK TO THE FLOOR
STEPPING INTO A LIFETIME AFFAIR

YOU GO FIRST, MY LOVE, YOU GO FIRST, GO FIRST
YOU GO FIRST, MY DARLING, GO FIRST.

WE WALTZED THROUGH THE NIGHT WITH SMALL STEPS AND LONG STRIDES
THEN EMBRACED AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS
WHERE I STOLE A SMALL KISS, FROM THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
AND PROMISED I WOULD ALWAYS BE THERE

YOU GO FIRST, I SAID, TO HER MOM AND DAD
AS WE ENTERED THE CHURCH ON THAT DAY.
WHERE WE STOOD SIDE BY SIDE, PLEDGING BOTH OF OUR LIVES
TO EACH OTHER, THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY.
YOU GO FIRST, SHE WOULD SAY, AT THE END OF EACH DAY
AS WE SHARED OUR SMALL SECRETS ALONE
COOL SHEETS AND WARM LOVE BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES OF
THAT FIRST CHILL AT THE OLD SWIMMING HOLE.

YOU GO FIRST, MY LOVE, YOU GO FIRST, GO FIRST
YOU GO FIRST, MY DARLING, GO FIRST

INSTRUMENTAL

YOU GO FIRST, MY SON SAID, AS I WALKED TO THE BED
HER LAST MOMENTS SLIPPING AWAY.
SAD EYES SAID “I’M SORRY”, AS SHE SWALLOWED HER PAIN
THEN HOLDING HER GENTLY, I PRAYED.

YOU GO FIRST, MY LOVE, YOU GO FIRST, GO FIRST
YOU GO FIRST, MY DARLING, GO FIRST

AND ON THAT STILL NIGHT IN JUNE
AS HER SOUL LEFT THE ROOM
YOU GO FIRST, I’LL BE WITH YOU SOON.
YOU GO FIRST, I’LL BE WITH YOU SOON

SHE'LL TAKE YOUR WALLET

Written By: LINDA CRAIG

SHE’LL TAKE YOUR WALLET AND YOUR HEART
Copyright by Linda Craig March 2009
YOU FOUND HER AT THE AIRPORT COMING BACK FROM THE BAHAMAS
ASKED HER FOR A DATE, AND WOUND UP DRUNK IN TIJUANA
YOUR FRIENDS ALL TRIED TO WARN YOU THAT YOU’RE GOING WAY TOO FAST
YOU TELL ‘EM IT’S NOT TRUE, AS YOU’RE HANDING HER YOUR CASH

SHE’LL TAKE YOUR WALLET AND YOUR HEART, BUT MAN THAT’S JUST THE START
YOU’LL SOON FIND OUT THAT YOU CAN’T TELL HER “NO.”
WITH THAT PRETTY LITTLE SMILE, AND LEGS THAT STRETCH FOR MILES
WHEN SHE SAYS “VEGAS”, YOU SAY “BABY, SURE, LET’S GO!”

SHE’LL ASK YOU FOR THE PLASTIC WHEN YOU DRIVE HER TO THE MALL
SHE SAYS “HONEY, I NEED MONEY” AND YOU BARELY BLINK AT ALL.
YOU HAND OVER YOUR VISA WHEN SHE SAYS SHE NEEDS SOME CLOTHES
I HATE TO TELL YOU BROTHER BUT I KNOW WHERE THIS ONE GOES.

REPEAT CHORUS

AFTER SHOPPING DOWN IN TEXAS,
YOUR CREDIT CARD’S REJECTED
HER PRETTY SMILE TURNS TO A NASTY POUT
SHE’LL LEAVE YOUR PICK-UP ON THE LAWN,
WHEN ALL THE MONEY’S GONE,
WITH YOUR HEART AND POCKETS ALL TURNED INSIDE OUT

REPEAT CHORUS
