Lyrics

Take Me Back

Written By: Mike Miller & Scott Palmer

Oh I can take you to this place
This place I talk about
Just put on your play clothes & your tenna shoes
Because we could be gone for hours

Yes for four long years I have been waiting for this day
Just to have my girl right by myside
I'll find us a shady spot neath that tree
Where we can catch some shut eye

Take me back where the winds blow softly
Take me back that extra mile
Take my hand little darlin, just so you can stay a while

Well she's sweeter than a lemon
Sweeter than a lime
But you'll get your fill with her blueberry eyes
She'll take your breath away almost everyday you catch a glimpse of her strawberry smile

The days they came
The days they will come
When eyes will need be dried
For someday you're going to leave this town and leave all you've loved behind

Take me back where the winds blow softly
Take me back that extra mile
Take my hand little darlin, just so you can stay a while

My whole life I have loved you my darling
The Kind of love that can't be named
So seal your lips girl no need to speak
You'll feel what I can't explain

The sun will be shadowed
The day you say goodbye
Memories will fill our tears
As you leave my heart behind

Cant Find My Way

Written By: Mike Miller

Cant find, find my way
Through these lonely days
I can't find my way pass these lonely days

Well I feel it's getting hard
But it's so hard to say
When it seems things are going my way
A simple twist of fate
Thats when I cant find my way pass these lonely days

I know I've seen brighter days
So I'll sit here and wait
For better things to come my way
Time shall kill pain
And so I live through these days struggling just to make my way

Cant find, find my way
Through these lonely days
I can't find my way pass these lonely days

Lost all I had to my name
Took it all away
Like a bad dream with no escape
I awoke the day
And so I live my life as a criminal so they say(but what do they know)

So I'm working my way on back from the start
Just to see the light of day
It was all to dark
What a trip it's been, to see it all fall apart

Well what a struggle its been
What a struggle its been
What a struggle its been

Cant find, find my way
Through these lonely days
I can't find my way pass these lonely days
