Been a long time I not posted a song....
Heard this over the radio..... this song never ceases to give me goosebumps. each time i hear it..... a man trying to deal with his self destructive girlfriend. Been there myself.. ironically when this song came out was about the time back in 94 when I had gone thru such an event...i can relate to this song so much that it isnt even right....i know exactly what he is saying and it is the roughest thing anyone could ever go through...
I sung this song at a variety show at the turn of the century. Just me and my friend on the acoustic. I love singin this one. And no I didn't butcher it haha. I can actually sing. :)
She sits alone by a lamppost, trying to find a thought that’s escaped her mind
She says Dad’s the one I love the most. but Stipe’s not far behind
She doesn't lets me in, only tell me where’s she’s been,
when she’s had too much to drink,
I say that I don’t care I just run my hands through her dark hair
and I pray to God you gotta help me fly away. And just…
Let her cry…if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing…if it eases all her pain, Let her go…let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow, Let her be…let her be.
This morning I woke up alone, found a note by the phone
saying maybe I’ll be back some day, I wanted to look for you
You walked in I didn’t know just what to do
so I sat back down had a beer and felt sorry for myself.
Last nite I tried to leave, She cried so much I just
could not believe, she was the same girl I
fell in love with long ago, She went in the back to get high
I sat down on my couch and cried
yelling oh mama please help me, won’t you hold my hand.
