Lyrics

How Long

Written By: Michael Churton

She turns her head
Raises up her eyes
So surprised to see he’s left
And gone away
Without a word to say
His reasons no no

She sits back in her chair
So sad she’s feeling
Not sure what to do
She just lays down
All around
She sees these pictures of him
Memories running all through her head

How long, Do I wait for you
How long, Do I stay
Don’t you make me stay always so true

Couple days gone by
Dressed in black she sees him
Knowing to herself
This would be the last time
As the door lay open
She began to scream then
Singing and swearing something like

How long, Do I wait for you
How long, Do I stay
Don’t you make me stay…

How long can I deny
How long can I lie
The sun has gone absent from the sky
In the darkness of this sea
How long will it be
Until I find someone else for me
How long.

You dare me
To forget you
But how can I forgive you
For making me feel so blue
Barely do I know the reasons
For your leaving
All I know is my love was true

How long, do I wait for you
How long, do I stay
Don’t you make me stay always so true

She got a lot older
Then she got married
Still she keeps a picture of him to her heart
So as they will never be apart
A sweet memory she would never want to leave
The End.

Old Love

Written By: Michael Churton

Seeing you again
Conjures deep feelings within
My heart
I’m begging them not to start
Thought I was over you
Realizing finally we were through
Until You looked so beautiful still

Old love
Never goes away
It just stays, in the way

Fall kills all autumn leaves
Yellow and red they bleed to the ground
Roots keep hold as snow keeps coming down

Old love
Never goes away
It just stays, in the way
Old love
Never goes away
It just stays, in the way

Found myself someone brand knew
Just right then you came into the room
And I knew, My heart would always beat for you
Am I doomed?

Old love
Never goes away
It just stays, in the way
Old love
Never goes away
It just stays, in the way

Get That Girl

Written By: Michael Churton

I can’t get that girl out of my head
All the love I give you, woman why not be interested
I can’t get that girl out of my head
Changing seasons I’ve been grieving, so sad since we’re apart

Good she was, timing was wrong,
Wrong for us, still I hear the song
That played as we danced upon
A first night that would last until dawn
As if planned, the singer in the band

Sang at the sorrows of falling in love
Sang at the sorrows of falling in love

When it starts, dark it turns
Just like the sun, slowly it burns
A melody, reminding me
Of the love I had for you
Now I need to be set free

It had been, the coldest winter
I had known, when I met her though
Her eyes melted the snow, but the end was foreshadowed
As if planned the singer in the band

Sang at the sorrows of falling in love
Sang at the sorrows of falling in love
