When Did You Stop Loving Me

Written By: William Throckmorton

I didnt have a clue you were hurting this way.
I had no idea we had come to this day.
You hit me on my blindside and I just couldnt see...
JUST WHEN DID YOU STOP LOVING ME?

I said "Lets take a walk, talk, and figure this out.
I still cant believe we've got this to talk about.
You gotta give me time to try and solve the mystery...
JUST WHEN DID YOU STOP LOVING ME?

Was there a moment when you finally realized
or did this feeling come gradually?
Where were the signs or were they right before my eyes?
I feel so hopeless, helpless, and free...

Then you said "Goodbye. Try and get on with life"
I watched you walk away saying you know that "it's right".
I am so confused, bruised, and down on my knees...
JUST WHEN DID YOU STOP LOVING ME?

TRADE A DAY

Written By: WILLIAM THROCKMORTON

WE SHARE LAUGHTER.
YOU AND I SHARE PAIN.
WE HAVE OUR SUNNY DAYS
AND NIGHTS IN THE RAIN.

THROUGH IT ALL, DAY BY DAY,
WHEN ALL OF THE TEARS HAVE
WASHED THE HURT AWAY.

WELL, I WOULDN'T TRADE A DAY
WITH YOU IN THE RAIN FOR
ANYTHING...

WE SING TOGETHER
AND SOMETIMES DANCE ALONE.
THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN
WE'D RATHER TAKE THIS JOURNEY ON OUR OWN.

THROUGH IT ALL, WE STAY STRONG-
EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING GOES WRONG.

WELL, I WOULDN'T TRADE A DAY
WITH YOU IN THE RAIN FOR
ANYTHING...

THROUGH THE STORM CLOUDS-
WHEN THE RAIN FALLS
AND LIGHTNING IS ALL AROUND.
GIRL, I PROMISE I'LL NEVER LET YOU DROWN...

WE HAVE FOREVER
OR MAYBE JUST TONIGHT.
BABY, I DON'T KNOW AND
I DON'T CARE. IT JUST FEELS RIGHT.

THROUGH IT ALL, WE BELIEVE.
WE JUST CLOSE OUR EYES AND BREATHE.

WELL, I WOULDN'T TRADE A DAY…
I WOULDN’T TRADE A DAY,
I WOULDN’T TRADE A DAY
WITH YOU IN THE RAIN FOR
ANYTHING...

(SHE LOVED ME) ANYWAY

Written By: WILLIAM THROCKMORTON

I REMEMBER AS A CHILD I WANTED SO MUCH TO PROVE
I DIDNT NEED ANYONES HELP-I COULD BE GROWN-UP, TOO
SO, I STOLE THE KEYS TO MY DADDY'S BRAND NEW BEAT-UP PICK-UP TRUCK.
I'D HAUL THAT HAY ALL BY MYSELF BUT SOMEHOW I GOT STUCK.

BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD HE FOUND ME-TRUCK STUCK IN A DITCH.
I KNEW FOR SURE HE'D KILL ME, BUT HE SMILED A LITTLE BIT...
AND HE SAID

"SON, IT AINT NO BIG DEAL.
LET'S JUST CALL IT A DAY."
WHEN HE HUGGED ME, IT WAS MORE THAN HIS WORDS COULD SAY
BECAUSE HE LOVED ME ANYWAY.

I HAVE A WIFE AND SON NOW. I'M AN HONEST WORKING MAN.
THINGS DON'T ALWAYS WORK OUT
EXACTLY AS YOU PLAN.
I'VE WORKED THE LINE FOR FIFTEEN YEARS BUT WE ALL GOT NOTICE TODAY.
HOW CAN I TELL THAT LADY HER MAN IS SO AFRAID.

AT THE END OF THE BAR, SHE FOUND ME.
HEAD DOWN IN MY HANDS.
I KNEW SHE'D SURELY LEAVE ME
BECAUSE I'VE LET HER DOWN AGAIN...
SHE SAID:

"HON, IT AIN'T NO BIG DEAL.
LET'S JUST CALL IT A DAY"
WHEN SHE HUGGED ME, IT WAS MORE THAN HER WORDS COULD SAY
BECAUSE SHE LOVED ME ANYWAY...

LAS NIGHT I GOT DOWN ON MY KNEES.
PRAYED TO GOD "FORGIVE ME, PLEASE.
FATHER, I HAVEN'T LIVED UP TO YOUR NAME"
AND I SWEAR I HEARD...

"SON, IT AINT NO BIG DEAL.
LET'S JUST CALL IT A DAY."
WHEN HE TOUCHED ME, IT WAS WHAT HIS WORDS HAD TO SAY
BECAUSE HE LOVED ME ANYWAY.
