Lyrics

Until I Believed it Too

Written By: Mary Sue Englund, Kim McLean

I thought everything was fine, I thought he was a perfect dream
You said he loved me more than life,
He used to buy me pretty things
Sometimes he’d work so hard and sometimes I was in his way
But he kissed away the tears and the bruises on my face

I was always so afraid so there things that I would hide
I guess I tried to make a saint of a devil in disguise
You told me he was bad but you never could get through
He told everyone how much he loved me
Until I believed it too

I painted such a picture of a Fairy tale life
Truth is it was nothing but a castle full of lies
All I ever wanted was a day in paradise
So I’d close my eyes and click my ruby shoes
Until I believed it too

When they told you I was gone
I was right there in the room
And I saw you fall apart
When they showed it on the news
A man found his wife today
There was no gun there was no proof
He’s so sorry he could die
And now I believe it too

How the truth begged me not to leave it alone
Now it’s covered with roses and it’s carved out in stone
He sat there in church that day like he’d done nothing wrong
Sheriff, tell me that the devil gets his due
Tell me so that I believe it too.

Sister, here beside my grave
we will share our bitter tears
Tell my story to the world
Don’t leave it buried here

When You've Lost Your Way Home

Written By: Mary Sue Englund, Lisa Brokop

Long day behind her, started her car
headed for her new place and her new start
a rented apartment on Reilley Road
yeah, it's all right, but it ain't home
she thinks of him across town
now she's got herself all turned around

she used to take a left on 8th
pass the Elliston Cafe
cross the bridge that turns into 3rd Avenue
But it's all out of place
every road on her map points to alone
where do you go when you've lost your way home

she pulls to the shoulder and lets the cars pass by
seems everyone has somewhere to be tonight
how can things be so different when they all look the same
will she ever get used to hearing her maiden name?
what will she do, here in the dark?
she used to know the way by heart

she used to take a left on 8th
pass the elliston cafe
cross the bridge that turns into 3rd avenue
but it's all out of place
every road on her map points to alone
where to do you go when you've lost your way home?
where do you go when you've lost your way home?

I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

Written By: MARY SUE ENGLUND, VICTORIA BANKS

I'VE STOOD WITH BOTH FEET IN THE OCEAN UNDERNEATH A STARRY SKY
I'VE SAT UPON MY DADDY'S SHOULDERS, AND WATCHED THE PARADE GO BY
I'VE HEARD THE SWEET SOUND OF A LOVER SOFTLY WHISPERING MY NAME
I'VE FELT THE HEAT, I'VE FELT THE HUNGER AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

I'VE TASTED KISSES AND I'VE TASTED TEARS
WATCHED LOVE GROW AND WATCHED IT DISAPPEAR
I HAVE SEARCHED FOR TRUTH AND CHOSEN LIES
I'VE BEEN SELFISH AND I'VE SACRIFICED
I'VE LET GO TOO SOON, HELD ON TOO HARD
BROKEN PROMISES AND BROKEN HEARTS
I HAVE LIVED AND LEARNED AND HEALED AND HURT AND LAUGHED AND CURSED AND PRAYED
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

I'VE GIVEN UP THE THINGS I NEEDED
OF WHAT I THOUGHT MADE ME WHOLE
AND I'VE FOUND BEAUTY IN MY WEAKNESS
I'M NOT AFRAID TO LET IT SHOW
AND I HAVE SCREAMED OUT LOUD AT JESUS WHEN I THOUGHT HE COULDN'T HEAR MY PAIN
BUT THEN I HEARD HIM ANSWER AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

I'VE TASTED KISSES AND I'VE TASTED TEARS
WATCHED LOVE GROW AND WATCHED IT DISAPPEAR
I HAVE TRUSTED AND I'VE BEEN BETRAYED
FOUGHT MY WAY BACK OUT OF MY MISTAKES
I HAVE LOST MY FAITH, BEEN FOUND BY GRACE
I'VE MADE TEARS RUN DOWN MY MOTHER'S FACE
I HAVE LIVED AND LEARNED AND HEALED AND HURT AND LAUGHED AND CURSED AND PRAYED
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

I HAVE LAID FRESH FLOWERS ON A GRAVE
SEEN THE FUTURE IN A BABY'S FACE
I HAVE LIVED AND LEARNED AND HEALED AND HURT AND LAUGHED AND CURSED AND PRAYED
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
