If You'd Only Said

Written By: Simon Groves

If You’d Only Said

©Simon Groves June 2004

If you’d only said what you were going through
I could have helped, you know, I’ve been there too
I know it’s hard to see things through
It’s a world away from the life you know

You feel the gods have spat on you
They’ve ground you down with their hob-nailed shoe
Well they’ve pressed you down til you can hardly feel
They’ve forced you down with their leather heel

You feel so small, so insecure
You feel you’re on a losing score
But you’ll soon see, it’s not all down to you
It takes two to fail, and she’s losing too!

If you’d only said what you were going through
I could have helped, you know, I’ve been there too

Snowed Under

Written By: Simon Groves

I was too young to know you then
Too young to realize
I let you leave, I was so naïve
I chose the road
That forced our lives apart

With childhood far behind we left down different roads
After meeting at the wrong time, right place
We parted with words that wouldn’t say just what we felt.

Time swept along pulling me where I belonged
Washing pain away, … or so I thought
As I watched you go, I never dreamed our paths would meet again

ch:
I’ve been snowed under, ground under
Dreaming of the light,
I’ve been pushed under, held under
Hidden from your sight, I’ve survived!

But somewhere in my heart, there lay a place for you
A cool calming port free from storm
After all that time, I found you when my life was torn apart.


I’ve been …

I’ve been …

Constant Disappointment

Written By: Simon Groves

I’m a constant disappointment to you:
See it in your eyes
Wish I knew what I could do
To keep you satisfied

But you’re all I’ve ever wanted
All I’ll ever need
Wish I could find the words
To tell you without pleading

Guess it slowly dawned upon you
Like a misty winter morning
I’ve got nothing more to offer you
There’s nothing new to learn

But you’re …

Your face once shone with fire
Now glances pass me by
No “Tell me how you love me”
Don’t care if it’s a lie

But you’re …

I’m a constant disappointment to you:
See it in your eyes
Wish I knew what I could do
To keep you satisfied

But you’re …

You’re all I’ve ever wanted
All I’ll ever need

How will I stop loving you when you’re gone? (*2)
When you’ve been in my arms so long

Tell me how to face these dreams every night (*2)
When everything no longer feels so right

How can I turn to face each worrying day
When all my thoughts have you in some small way

Was I a fool to let this pain slip deep?
Maybe it’ll ease once I can sleep

You don’t seem so clever now, to me
No answers there that I can see

Turn Back Time

Turn Back Time
©2011 Simon Groves

If I could turn back time
If I could make time stand still
That skill would be no use to me
Til I could spend that time with you

I’m taking my chance to tell you this
Hoping you won’t turn from me
Praying I’ve read the winds correctly
These words won’t blow you away

There’s no way you’re leaving me
There’s no way I’m giving up now

Been waiting in a Summer sun just to touch you
Heat ain’t gone to my head
I know that in the cold light of night I’ll still want this
My thoughts are crystal clear

There’s no way you’re leaving me
There’s no way I’m giving up now
