Lyrics

I lIked You Better When

Written By: M. Wittenbrink

Please stop talking there's this ringing in my ears
You're constant nagging is what's bringing me to tears
It's hard to say what happened from the time that we first met
But what goes around hasn't come around just yet

I keep wondering just why I let you in

Cause I liked you better when
You weren't sleeping with my friends
You took my life and turned it upside down
And I need a love that's true
I know I'll never get that from you
This nerve you're on is surely getting thin
I liked you better when

I lost my job cause you called me fifty times a day
And when I answered you didn't have a thing to say
I keep on dropping hints but nothing seems to make it through
It seems so obvious but baby you ain't got a clue

I keep wondering just why I let you in

Cause I liked you better when
You weren't sleeping with my friends
You took my life and turned it upside down
And I need a love that's true
I know I'll never get that from you
This nerve you're on is surely getting thin
I liked you better when....

You had you're friends and I had mine
You didn't take up all my time
You knew when not to cross that line
I've been trying buy I just can't stand your lying

I liked you better when
You weren't sleeping with my friends
You took my life and turned it upside down
And I need a love that's true
I know I'll never get that from you
This nerve you're on is surely getting thin
I liked you better when

Where Do I Fit In

Written By: M. Wittenbrink

Got a picture in the mail today
Of a girl I thought I'd lost
Eighteen years and not a day goes by
I don't realize the cost

When I backed out you stepped in
And I regret that you're the Dad
That I should have been

Chorus:
Cause you held her all those nights when I was gone
You're the only Dad that she has ever known
I've been waiting all these years
Maybe you don't want me here
I was hoping we could all be friends
So where do I fit in?

I kept my word and stayed away
But my heart could not forget
Each day you raised my little girl
Was another deep regret

If you back up and let me in
I can try to be the Dad you were
And I should have been

Chorus:
Cause you held her all those nights when I was gone
You're the only Dad that she has ever known
I've been waiting all these years
Maybe you don't want me here
I was hoping we could all be friends
So where do I fit in?

In my daughter's eyes, she identifies with you
Cause you're the only one
Who helped her pray at night
Watched her grow up right
Maybe I've been gone too long

Chorus:
Cause you held her all those nights when I was gone
You're the only Dad that she has ever known
I've been waiting all these years
Maybe you don't want me here
I was hoping we could all be friends
This is my last chance to start again
So where do I fit in?

Tell me where do I fit in

We Knew We Were Loved

Written By: M. Wittenbrink

We didn't have much growing up
Mom and Dad worked hard
They gave us hugs every single day
And prayed with us so we'd find our way
Yea we knew

We knew we were loved
We knew we were loved

I watched Mom holding Daddy's hand as he passed away
She just couldn't leave his side
She kissed his head as she said good-bye
And even now she feels that he's close by

He knew he was loved
He knew he was loved

The greatest gift we can ever give
Is given selflessly

Now I watch my kids as they're growing up
Their Mom and I work hard
We give our kids everything they want
But especially what they need

We just give them love
We give them our love

There In Your Eyes

Written By: M. Wittenbrink

Caught between the dark and the light
I'm just not sure what I'm to do
In my heart is an ongoing fight
How it all ends I leave entirely to you

You drained me of my will to survive
And even though I'm barely alive

Chorus: You're leaving I know damn well
Cause it's there in your eyes
You're scheming it hurts like hell
You can't hide what is there in your eyes

I can only blame myself
For giving you the upper hand
I wish that I was someone else
So I'd have the nerve to make a stand

I thought that if I let you win
That someday you might let me in

Chorus: But you're leaving I know damn well
Cause it's there in your eyes
Your scheming it hurts like hell
You can't hide what is there in your eyes
