Alsion krauss lyrics

"Raising Sand" (2007)

Killing The Blues lyrics - alison krauss

Leaves were falling, just like embers,
In colors red and gold, they set us on fire
Burning just like moonbeams in our eyes.

[Chorus:]
Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.

Now I'm guilty of something...
I hope you never do
Because there is nothing
Any sadder than losing yourself in love.

[Chorus]

And then you've ask me... just to leave you
To set out on my own
And get what I needed.
You want me to find what I've already had.

[Chorus 2x]

Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us lyrics - alison krauss

Strange things are happening everyday
I hear the music up above my head
Though the sight of my heart has left me again
I hear music up above

Secrets are written in the sky
Looks like I've lost the love I've never found
Though the sound of hope has left me again
I hear music up above

Standing in my broken heart all night long
Darkness held me like a friend when love wore off
Looking for the lamb that's hidden in the cross
The finder's lost
I know I loved you too much
I'll go alone to get through

I hear Rosetta singing in the night
Echos of light that shines like stars after they're gone
And tonight she's my guide as I go on alone
With the music up above

Polly Come Home lyrics - alison krauss

If the wild bird could speak
She'd tell of places you had been
She's been in my dreams
And she knows all the ways of the wind

[Chorus:]
Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Dreams cover much time
Still they leave blind
The will to begin
I searched for you there
And now look for you from within

[Chorus]

Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On) lyrics - alison krauss

Some sunny day-hay baby
When everything seems okay, baby
Youll wake up and find out youre alone
Cause Ill be gone
Gone, gone, gone really gone
Gone, ga-gone, cause you done me wrong

Everyone that you meet baby
As you walk down the street baby
Will ask you why youre walkin all alone
Why youre on your own
Just say Im gone
Gone, gone, gone
Gone, ga-gone, cause you done me wrong

If you change your way baby
You might get me to stay baby
Ya better hurry up if ya dont wanna be alone
Or Ill be gone
Gone, gone, gone
Really gone
Gone, Ga-gone
Cause you done me wrong

Through The Morning, Through The Night lyrics - alison krauss

Believe me when I tell you
I will try to understand
Belive me when I tell you
I could never kill a man

But to know that another man's holding you tight
Hurts me, little darling
Thru the morning thru the night

The bond has been broken
The promise you gave
The words that were spoken
I can not be your slave

But to know that the trust you had in me is gone
Hurts me, little darling
Thru the nightime thru the dawn

I dreamed just last night you were there by my side
Your sweet loving tenderness
Easing my pride

But then I awoke and found you not there
It was just my old memory of how much I care

Belive me when I tell you
I will try to understand
Belive me when I tell you
I could never kill a man

But to know that another man's holding you tight
Hurts me little, darling
Thru the morning thru the night

Please Read The Letter lyrics - alison krauss

Caught out running
With just a little too much to hide
Maybe baby
Everything's gonna work out fine
Please read the letter
I pinned it to your door
It's crazy how it all turned out
We needed so much more

Too late, too late
A fool could read the signs
Maybe baby
You'd better check between the lines
Please read the letter, I
Wrote it in my sleep
With help and consultation from
The angels of the deep

Once I stood beside a well of many words
My house was full of rings and
Charms and pretty birds
Please understand me, my
Walls come falling down
There's nothing here that's left for you
But check with lost and found

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

One more song just before we go
Remember baby
All the things
We used to know
Please read my letter
And promise you'll keep
The secrets and the memories and
Cherish in the deep

Ah...

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

Trampled Rose lyrics - alison krauss

Long way going to
Get my medicine
Sky's the autumn grey of a lonely wren

Piano from a window played
Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday

I found it in the street
At first I did not see
Lying at my feet
A trampled rose

Passing the hat in church
It never stops going around

You never pay just once
To get the job done

What I done to me,
I done to you
What happened to the trampled rose?

In the muddy street
With the fireworks and leaves

A blind man with a cup I asked
Would he sing 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine'

I know that rose,
Like I know my name
The one I gave my love,
It was the same
Now I find it in the street,
A trampled rose

Fortune Teller lyrics - alison krauss

Went to the fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

How could that be so?
I thought of all the girls I know.
She said when the next one arrives
That you'll be looking into her eyes

Left there in a hurry
Looking forward to my big surprise
The next day I discovered
That the fortune teller told me a lie

I hurried back down to that woman
As mad as I could be
I said I didn't see nobody
Why had she made a fool out of me?

Then something struck me
As if it came from up above
While looking at the fortune teller
I fell in love

Now I'm a happy fellow
'Cause I'm married to the fortune teller
And I'm as happy as we can be
And now I get my fortune told for free

Stick With Me Baby lyrics - alison krauss

Everybody's been a-talkin'; they say our love wasn't real
That it would soon be over; that's not the way that I feel
But I don't worry, honey; let them say what they may
Come on and stick with me, baby; we'll find a way
Yes, we'll find a way

[Instrumental]

Everybody's been a-talkin'; yes, the news travels fast
They said the fire would stop burnin', that the flame wouldn't last
But I don't worry, honey; let them say what they may
Come on & stick with me, baby; we'll find a way
Yes, we'll find a way

[Repeat & fade:]
Come on and stick with me, baby

Nothin lyrics - alison krauss

Hey mama, when you leave
Don't leave a thing behind
I don't want nothin'
I can't use nothin'

Take care into the hall
And if you see my friends
Tell them I'm fine
Not using nothin'

Almost burned out my eyes
Threw my ears down to the floor
I didn't see nothin'
I didn't hear nothin'

I stood there like a block of stone
Knowin' all I had to know
And nothin' more
Man, that's nothin'

As brothers our troubles are
Locked in each others arms
And you better pray
They never find you

Your back ain't strong enough
For burdens doublefold
They'd crush you down
Down into nothin'

Being born is going blind
And buying down a thousand times
To echoes strung
On pure temptation

Sorrow and solitude
These are the precious things
And the only words
That are worth rememberin'

Your Long Journey lyrics - alison krauss

God's given us years of happiness here
Now we must part
And as the angels come and call for you
The pains of grief tug at my heart

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Oh the days will be empty
The nights so long without you my love
And when god calls for you I'm left alone
But we will meet in heaven above

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Fond memories I'll keep of happy ways
That on earth we trod
And when I come we will walk hand in hand
As one in heaven in the family of god

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

You're Just A Country Boy lyrics - alison krauss

Ain't gonna marry in the fall
Ain't gonna marry in the spring
For you're in love
With a pretty little girl
Who wears a diamond ring

You're just a country boy
Money have you none
But you've got silver
In the stars
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun

Never gonna kiss the ruby red lips
Of the prettiest girl in town
Never gonna ask her if she'll marry you
She'd only turn you down

You're just a country boy
Money have you none
But you've got silver
In the stars
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun

Never could afford a store bought ring
With a sparklin' diamond stone
All you could afford is a loving heart
The only one you own

You're just a country boy
Money have you none
But you've got silver
In the stars
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun

Simple Love lyrics - alison krauss

Little yellow house sittin' on a hill
That is where he lived
That is where he died
Every Sunday morning
Hear the weeping willows cry

Two children born
A beautiful wife
Four walls and livin's all he needed in life
Always giving, never asking back
I wish I had a simple love like that

I want a simple love like that
Always giving, never askin' back
For when I'm in my final hour lookin' back
I hope I had a simple love like that

My momma was his only little girl
If he'd had the money he'd have given her the world
Sittin' on the front porch together they would sing
Oh how I long to hear that harmony

I want a simple love like that
Always giving never asking back
When I'm in my final hour looking back
I hope I had a simple love like that

I want a simple love like that
Always giving never asking back
When I'm in my final hour looking back
I hope I had a simple love like that

Jacob's Dream lyrics - alison krauss

In the spring of 1856 with the snow still on the ground
Two little boys were lost in the mountains above the town
The father went out hunting the boys had stayed behind
While mother tended to her chores they wandered from her side

The two had gone to follow him and lost their way instead
By dusk the boys had not been found and fear had turned to dread
200 men had gathered there to comb the mountain side
The fires were built on the highest peak in hopes they'd see the light

Oh mommy and daddy why can't you hear our cries
The day is almost over, soon it will be night
We're so cold and hungry and our feet are tired and sore
We promise not to stray again from our cabin door

Now Jacob Diverd woke one night from a strange and erie dream
He saw a path between two hills near a dark and swollen stream
He told his wife he saw the boys huddled close beside a log
For two more nights the dream returned this vision sent from God

Oh mommy and daddy why can't you hear our cries
The day is almost over, soon it will be night
We're so cold and hungry and our feet are tired and sore
We promise not to stray again from our cabin door

a thousand men had searched in vain the west side of pop's creek
But Jacob's wife knew of this place and said to travel east
With a guide to take him there, Jacob came upon the scene
And found the boys cold and still beneath the old birch tree

Oh mommy and daddy, look past the tears you cry
We're both up in Heaven now, God is by our side
As you lay us down to rest in the presence of the Lord
Know that we will meet you here at Heaven's door

Oh mommy and daddy, look past the tears you cry
We're both up in Heaven now, God is by our side
And as you lay us down to rest in the presence of the Lord
Know that we will meet you here at Heaven's door

Away Down The River lyrics - alison krauss

Baby dry your eyes
There's no need to cry
Cause I'll see you again
It might be a while
Before you understand

[Chorus:]
I'm just away down the river
A hundred miles or more
Crossing over Jordan
To the other shore
I'll be standing waiting
With all who've gone before
I'm just away down the river
A hundred miles or more

Now the pictures on the wall
Will help you to recall
They're not there
To make you sad
But to remember
All the good times we had

[Chorus]

[Instrumental]

When it's time to leave
You're gonna feel the mountain breeze
And the snow will fill the stream
And carry you to me

[Chorus]

Sawing On The Strings lyrics - alison krauss

Way back in the mountains
Way back in the hills
There used to live a mountianeer
They called him fiddlin' Will
He could play most anything
And some say he could sing
But the one thing that he liked to do best
Was sawing on the strings

So get out the fiddle
And rosin up the bow
Look at ol' Will a pattin' his toe
we'll make music til the rafters ring
All that pickin' and a sawin on the string

When the neighbors had a shindig
And they all had viddles to eat
We'd always have to wait on Will
To make the frolic complete
When he comes down from the mountain
All the gals began to sway
Sometimes he'd pick that ol' 5 string
Until the break of day

So tune up the 5 string
Tighten up the hyde
Tell all the hill folks to get inside
All them pickin' and a sawing on the string

So tune up the 5 string
Tighten up the hyde
Tell all the hill folks to get inside
All them pickin' and a sawing on the string

Baby Mine lyrics - alison krauss

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
never to part,
baby of mine.

Little one when you play,
don't you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
never a tear,
baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you
they'd end up loving you two.
All of those people who scold you
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
you're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you,
they'd end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you,
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes
you're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
baby of mine.
Baby of mine

Molly Bán (Bawn) lyrics - alison krauss

Come all ye young fellas
That handle a gun
Beware of night rambling
By the setting of the sun
And beware of an accident
That happened of late
To young Molly Ban
And sad was her fate

She was going to her uncles
When a shower came on
She went under a green bush
The shower to shun

Her white apron wrapped around her
He took her for a swan
But a hush and sigh
Was his own Molly Ban

He quickly ran to her
And found she was dead
And there on her bosom
Where he soaked, tears he shed

He ran home to his father
With his gun in his hand
Saying "Father dear father
I have shot Molly Ban"

Her white apron wrapped around her
He took her for a swan
But a hush and a sigh
'Twas his own Molly Ban

He roamed near the place
Where his true love was slain
He wept bitter tears
But his cries were in vain
As he look on the lake
A swan glided by
And the sun slowly sank
In the gray up sky

How's The World Treating You (feat. James Taylor) lyrics - alison krauss

I've had nothing but sorrow
Since you said we were through
There's no hope for tomorrow
How's the world treating you
Every sweet thing that matters
Has been broken in two
All my dreams have been shattered
How's the world treating you
Got no plans for next Sunday
Got no plans for today
Every day is blue Monday
Every day you're away
Tho' our pathways have parted
To your memory I'm true
Guess I'll stay broken hearted
How's the world treating you
Do you wonder about me
Like I'm hoping you do
Are you lonesome without me
Have you found someone new
Are you burning and yearning
Do you ever get blue
Do you think of returning
How's the world treating you

The Scarlet Tide lyrics - alison krauss

Well I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate
Or take myself far from this place
I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
Man has no choice
When he wants every thing

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in the mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And brokers who break everything
The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of day
Why would I want him just to lose him again

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

Whiskey Lullaby (feat. Brad Paisley) lyrics - alison krauss

She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

[1st Chorus]
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

[Sing lullaby]

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

[2nd Chorus]
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

You Will Be My Ain True Love lyrics - alison krauss

You'll walk unscathed through musket fire,
No ploughman's blade will cut thee down,
No cutless wound will mark thy face
And you will be my ain true love,
And you will be my ain true love

And as you walk through death's dark veil,
The cannon's thunder can't prevail,
And those who hunt thee down will fail,
And you will be my ain true love,
And you will be my ain true love.

Asleep inside the cannon's mouth,
The captain cries, "Here comes the rout,"
They'll seek to find me north and south,
I've gone to find my ain true love.

The field is cut and bleeds to red.
The cannon balls fly round my head,
The infirmary man may count me dead,
When I've gone to find my ain true love,
I've gone to find my ain true love

I Give You To His Heart lyrics - alison krauss

The wind is blowing down the quiet river,
a shining road that carries you alone.
Baby boy my love will last forever.
If you're to live, I must give you up to God.

I know our God will guide, protect and keep you.
Teach you faith and hold you by the heart.
Though your mother's heart is broken by your leaving,
her Father knows just who he is and who you are.

I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way,
with Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay.
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part.
You must live.
So I give you to his heart.

The wind is blowing down the silent river,
a shining road that leaves me all alone.
A life for you's worth losing you forever.
Some day we'll stand in God's fair land, forever home.

I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way,
with Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay.
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part.
You must live.
So I give you to his heart.

I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way,
with Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay.
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part.
You must live.
So I give you to his heart.

Get Me Through December lyrics - alison krauss

How pale is the sky that brings forth the rain
As the changing of seasons prepares me again
For the long bitter nights and the wild winter's day
My heart has grown cold my love stored away
My heart has grown cold my love stored away

I've been to the mountain left my tracks in the snow
Where souls have been lost and the walking wounded go
I've taken the pain no girl should endure
Faith can move mountains of that I am sure
But faith can move mountains of that I am sure

Just get me through December
A promise I'll remember
Get me through December
So I can start again

No divine purpose brings freedom from sin
And peace is a gift that must come from within
I've looked for the love that will bring me to rest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest

Get me through December
A promise I'll remember
Get me through December
So I can start again

Missing You (feat. John Waite) lyrics - alison krauss

Every time I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here
And you're miles away
And I'm wondering why you left
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight
I hear your name in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time
Thinking about you
And it's almost driving me wild
And there's a heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What I might say
There's a message
In the wild
And I'm sending you
this signal tonight
You don't know
How desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight
In your world
I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard
to understand
And it's my heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What my friends say
And there's a message that I'm sending out
Like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What my friends say
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I keep lying to myself
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What my friends say
Ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I keep lying to myself
Ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
Ain't missing you
Oh no
No matter what my friends might say
I ain't missing you

Lay Down Beside Me (feat. John Waite) lyrics - alison krauss

[John Waite:]
I've spent my life
Lookin for you
Findin' my way
Wasn't easy to do
But I knew there was you
All the while
And it's been worth
Every mile

So lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
And kiss all the hurtin'
Of this world away
Hold me so close
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

[Alison Krauss:]
Mornings and evenings
All were the same
There was no music
Til I heard your name
I knew when I saw you smile
And now I can rest for a while

[Together:]
So lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
Kiss all the hurtin'
Of this world away
Hold me so close
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

And hold me so close
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

[she hums]
he sings
Love me and hide me

[both hum]
he sings
'Til I feel your heart beat

[both hum]

Down To The River To Pray lyrics - alison krauss

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way!

O sisters let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O sisters let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe & crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O brothers let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
Come on brothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O fathers let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O fathers let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O mothers let's go down
Come on down, don't you wanna go down?
Come on mothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studding about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O sinners, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O sinners, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

Gravity lyrics - alison krauss

I left home when I was seventeen
I just grew tired of falling down
And I'm sure I was told
The allure of the road
Would be all I found

And all the answers that I started with
Turned out questions in the end
So years roll on by
And just like the sky
The road never ends

And the people who love me still ask me
When are you coming back to town
And I answer quite frankly
When they stop building roads
And all God needs is gravity to hold me down

Restless lyrics - alison krauss

Honey, I know you've been alone some,
Why don't you 'phone some, 'cause I love you.
An' honey, I know I've been away some,
I've had to pay some and you have too.

But the one thing I know: that when I, I turn out the light,
Visions of you, dear, dance in the night.
I've been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led down town.
An' I can't help it if I'm out of sight,
'Cause I'm restless tonight.

I just can't stand bein' alone.
Gonna have to change that some day.
There's a restless feelin' in my bones an' I know,
That at times, it just won't go away.

So if it's all the same, honey, I can't take the blame, baby,
I can't play your game, honey, what's true is true.
And if, in the end, the temptation wears you thin, honey,
I'll, I'll just pretend that I'll leave it up to you.

But the one thing I know: that when I, I turn out the light,
Visions of you, dear, dance in the night.
I've been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led down town.
Can't help it if I'm full of fight.

But the one thing I know: that when I, I turn out the light,
Visions of you, dear, dance in the night.
I've been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led down town.
An' I can't help it if I'm out of sight,
'Cause I'm restless tonight.

Rain Please Go Away lyrics - alison krauss

Rain, please go away
Leave me alone, come another day
My love is gone, this time to stay
Rain, please go away

It's tough to live the whole day through
Thinkin' of her is all I do
She's happy now, and I'm so blue
Rain, she's cold like you

If only the time wouldn't drag so slow
Find a new love and let it grow
I'm kiddin' myself, it don't happen that way
Rain, please go away

Rain, please go away
Leave me alone, come another day
My love is gone, this time to stay
Rain, please go away

Goodbye Is All We Have lyrics - alison krauss

I'm soaring the sky
I can hear the birds and man they don't lie
How you gonna catch me, when I'm this high

I'm moving on
I got the words to a brand new song
How you gonna catch me, when I'm this close

[Chorus:]
Gone tomorrow here today
Just in case you got somethin' to say
I'll be leaving with the rest if
Goodbye is all we have

I disconnected the phone
Told the neighbors I'll be heading home
As soon as the light hits the morn

I'm heading north
Gonna see what this heart's really worth
I guess it's time to be on my own

[Chorus]

I sure would love to see you tonight
Maybe try to end this fight
If I don't hear you knockin' on my door
Then I'll know for sure

[Chorus]

Wouldn't Be So Bad lyrics - alison krauss

Take me back to Anona street
Fill my glass again
With a bittersweet
Cause I don't wanna see
The life I have
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

Same mistake that I made before
I'll be waking up
On the kinlin' floor
While the bells are ringing
So low and sad
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

Same mistake that I made before
I'll be waking up
On the kinlin' floor
I remember how
I made you mad
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

I Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

Pastures Of Plenty lyrics - alison krauss

Well, it's always we ramble, this river and I
All along your green valleys, I work till I die
My land I'll defend with my life need it be
'Cause my pastures of plenty must always be free

Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground
From the Grand Coulee Dam where the waters run down
Every state in this union us migrants have been
Lord, we come with the dust and we go with the wind

California, Arizona, I harvest your crops
Then it's on up North to Oregon to gather your hogs
Take the beet from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine
Just to place on your table your that light, sparkling wine

Crazy As Me lyrics - alison krauss

I'm used to being alone.
Except for six month playings without rings and phone bills that I've waited for.
This is the life that I choose.
I got no complaints if he is;
if he ain't, I guess he'll send me a rose.

Just don't ask me for the truth if you choose to lie honey.
And don't try to open my door with your skeleton key.
Some folks seem to think I only got one problem.
I can't find nobody as crazy as me.

I still love what I know.
I love to ride alone and sing a song and listen to the radio.
You can ride alone and if you change your mind, well, that's just fine,
But there is somethin' that you got to know.

Just don't ask me for the for the truth if you choose to lie honey.
And don't try to open my door with your skeleton key.
Some folks seem to think I only got one problem.
I can't find nobody as crazy as me.

Just don't ask me for the for the truth if you choose to lie honey.
And don't try to open my door with your skeleton key.
Some folks seem to think I only got one problem.
I can't find nobody as crazy as me.

Borderline lyrics - alison krauss

So you're on your own lookin' down the road that goes only by one name
And you don't need the signs to see lonely still runs both ways
So who's the fool that would think the ties would be better off undone
Did your heart heed the warning when you veered from the path that was narrower and straight

On the borderline
Somewhere between the flight for freedom
Feeling like you can't move on
The chore will be the time
Takes you off of my mind and out of my heart I know
And when you cross over there's no turning back
Once that burning bridge is gone

I may lose but I'm in it for the long run
Loving you for good reason could be the wrong one
I don't wanna lose control but the heart won't learn
To let it well enough alone

On the borderline
Somewhere between the flight for freedom
Feeling like you can't move on
The chore will be the time
Takes you off of my mind and out of my heart I know
And when you cross over there's no turning back
Once that burning bridge is gone

So you're on your own lookin' down the road that goes only by one name

My Poor Old Heart lyrics - alison krauss

Don't expect too much from my poor old heart,
You can blame me unforgiven for my scars,
you might just be the best that I can find,
but I can't seem to forget the tears I've cried,
I don't know that I will ever trust again,
it's a price I must pay for all my sins,
Time has changed me and left me full of doubt,
and my heart may be lost never to be found,

Once upon a time I did believe,
in my true love that swept me off my feet,
the nthe wind of change swept him away,
and left me drowning in my own pain
I don't know that I will ever love again,
it's a price that I must pay for all my sins,
time has changed me and left me full of doubt,
and my heart may be lost never to be found,
I don't know that I will ever love again,
it's the price that I must pay for all my sins,

time has changed me and left me full of doubt,
I don't know that I will ever trust again,
it's the price I must pay for all my sins,
time has changed me and left me full of doubt,
and my heart may be lost never to be found.

I don't know that I will ever trust again,

This Sad Song lyrics - alison krauss

Well, the rain is apourin' down in a fury
And the road is lookin' long
And the only thing that comes to mind
Is the tune of this sad song
Tune of this sad song! Oh Lord!

Well, the wind is acreepin' up my back
Through the door, through the roof, through the window crack
Tossin' and a-turnin' all night long
To the rhythm and the sound of a saddened song
Saddened song! Oh Lord!

In a dream of passion I saw a face
Of a beautiful woman in a terrible place
She looked at me, and she called for you
Then she closed her eyes and she sang this tune
Sang this tune! Oh Lord!

Doesn't Have To Be This Way lyrics - alison krauss

Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

You smell like moonlight and early morning rain
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
Or find a cure for your decay

[Chorus:]
You're at your best with an ache in your chest
And that worn out old song that you play
Only Jesus and you who long to teach us
Should know and be left to betray

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
You can choose the dancer if you could choose the flame
I think you'll find they're one in the same
It doesn't have to be this way

[Chorus]

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay
It doesn't have to be this way

I Don't Have To Live This Way lyrics - alison krauss

I been up and down before
Grief won't hold me any more
You're running out of games to play
I don't have to live this way

Thought I loved you for awhile
You were loaded up on style
Talk is cheap but I won't play
I don't have to live this way

No I won't play the games that you've designed
And I won't wait to listen to your lines
Before you speak another word
I'll repeat it so I'm heard
You're running out of games to play
I don't have to live this way

You won't stay another night
Or did you want another right
Now I've got the eyes to see
You get your kicks by hurting me

No I won't play the games that you've designed
And I won't wait to listen to your lines
Before you speak another word
I'll repeat it so I'm heard
You're running out of games to play
I don't have to live this way

If I Didn't Know Any Better lyrics - alison krauss

I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind
I know this is just a customary feelin'
The moon is our deceiver that will leave you running blind

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

Didn't want to
Look in the eyes of the one that I would be drawn to
I'm a moth lost in a fire
And I know this is just a beautiful illusion, a case of the confusion, between love and desire

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love

When the flame burns out
And fine'ly settles down
And you'd forget I ever came around

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind

A Living Prayer lyrics - alison krauss

In this world I walk alone with no place to call my home
But there's One who holds my hand
The rugged road through barren lands
The way is dark, the road is steep
But He's become my eyes to see
The strength to climb, my griefs to bear
This Savior lives inside me there

In Your love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let me be
A living prayer my God to thee

In these trials of life I find
Another Voice inside my mind
He comforts me and bids me live
Inside the love the Father gives

In your love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let me be
A living prayer my God to thee
take my life and let me be
A living prayer my God to thee

"New Favorite" (2001)

Let Me Touch You For Awhile lyrics - alison krauss

It's been a long time coming,
As you shed a lonesome tear.
And now you're in a wonderama,
I wonder what you're doin' here.

The flame no longer flickers,
You're feeling just like a fool.
You keep starin' into your liquor,
Wonderin' what to do.

I don't hardly know you,
But I'd be willin' to show you,
A way to make you smile!
Let me touch you for awhile.

I'm gonna ruin my black mascara.
You're drinkin whiskey when it should be wine.
You keep a-lookin' into that mirror.
But to me you're lookin' really fine.

I don't hardly know you,
But I'd be willin' to show you,
I know a way to make you,
Laugh at that cowgirl as she's walkin' out your door.
I know a way to make you smile.

Just let me whisper things,
You've never heard before.
Just let me touch you, baby.
Just let me touch you for awhile.

I don't hardly know you,
But I'd be willin' to show you,
I know a way to make you smile.

It's been a long time,
Let me touch you for awhile.

The Boy Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn lyrics - alison krauss

Tell You a little story and it won't take long,
'Bout a lazy farmer who wouldn't hoe his corn.
The reason why I never could tell,
That young man was always well.

He planted his corn in the month of June.
By July it was up to his eyes.
Come September, came a big frost.
And all the young man's corn was lost.

His courtship had just begun.
Said: "Young man, have you hoed some corn?"
"Well I tried and I tried, and I tried in vain.
"But I don't believe I raised one grain."

He went down town to his neighbour's door.
Where he had often been before.
Sayin': "Pretty little miss, will you marry me?"
"Little miss what do you say?"

"Why do you come for me to wed?
"You, can't even make your own corn grain.
"Single I am, and will remain.
"A lazy man, I won't maintain."

He turned his back and walked away.
Saying: "Little miss, you'll rue the day.
"You'll rue the day that you were born.
"For givin' me the devil 'cos I wouldn't hoe corn."

The Lucky One lyrics - alison krauss

You're the lucky one
So i've been told
As free as the wind,
Blowin' down the road
Loved by many, hated by none
I'd say you're lucky 'cause I know what you've done
Not a care in the world
Not a worry in sight
Everything's gunna be alright
Cause you're the lucky one

You're the lucky one
Always havin' fun
A jack of all trades a master none
You look at the world with a smilin' eye
And laugh at the devil as his train goes by

Give you a song and a one night stand
And you'll be looking at a happy man
'cause you're the lucky one.

Well you're blessed i guess
By never knowing which road your choosin.
To you the next best thing
To playin and winning is playin and losing

You're the lucky one i know that now
Don't ask you why, when, where, or how
You look at the world thru your smilin' eye
And laugh at the devil as his train goes by

Give you a song and a one night stand
And you'll be looking at a happy man
'cause you're the lucky one

Well you're blessed i guess
By never knowing which road your choosin.
To you the next best thing
To playin and winning is playin and losing

You're the lucky one i know that now
Don't ask you why, when, where, or how
No matter where you're at, it's where you'll be
You can bet your luck won't follow me
Just give you a song and a one night stand
And you'll be looking at a happy man
Cause you're the lucky one.

Crazy Faith lyrics - alison krauss

I lit my love and watched it burn
Asking nothing in return
Except the lessons I will learn
By holding crazy faith

I've been touched by that bright fire
Down to the root of my desire
While the smoke it rises higher
On crazy faith

You're not asking if I love this man
I know you don't, you don't believe you can
Yet I've seen love open like a dancer's fan
It's crazy I know
But my faith says so, it tells me

Am I a fool for hanging on?
Would I be a fool to be long gone?
When is daylight going to dawn
On my crazy faith?

The questions will not let me sleep
Answers buried way too deep
At the bottom of a lover's leap
Made by crazy faith

You're not asking if I love this man
I know you don't, you don't believe you can
Yet I've seen love open like a dancer's fan
It's crazy I know, but my faith says so
It tells me

Love your losing, lose your love
Let the hawk fly from the glove
Then do not search the skies above
Search your crazy faith

Love is lightning, love is ice
It only strikes the lucky twice
Once, so you will know the price
And once for crazy faith

You're not asking if I love this man
I know you don't, you don't believe you can
Yet I've seen love open like a dancer's fan
It's crazy I know,
But my faith says so

Momma Cried lyrics - alison krauss

Momma loved us, every one.
Every daughter, every son.
She gave herself so happily,
That's just the way she was, you see.

From dawn to dark she'd find a chore.
And work it 'til it was no more.
And every day until she died,
In the evening, Momma cried.

Momma cried;
There was mourning in the evening.
And Momma cried;
'Cos her little girl was gone.

Her little girl was snatched away.
She was there and then just gone one day.
And Momma blamed herself, I'd say,
But all of us had debts to pay.

Momma cried;
There was mourning in the evening.
And Momma cried;
'Cos her little girl was gone.

I did my best to cheer her pride.
That day that something broke inside.
I swore I'd find her and I tried.
In the evening, Momma cried.

Momma cried;
There was mourning in the evening.
And Momma cried;
'Cos her little girl was gone.

Momma cried;
There was mourning in the evening.
And Momma cried;
'Cos her little girl was gone.

I'm Gone lyrics - alison krauss

When you came to me
You said love could not erase
The ever present memory of another face

I tried to make you love me
How I could I be so blind
To think I'd be the one to change your mind

And if I'm gone before you start
Well you can find me in your heart
Who can say if its right wrong
I've waited for you too long
And if I can't hold on
I'm Gone

When you came to me
I said love will find a way
For every heart that leaves another heart must stay

I guess you couldn't see
As the shadow's in the night
It seems the time for us just wasn't right

And if I'm gone before you start
Well you can find me in your heart
Who can say if its right wrong
I've waited for you too long
And if I can't hold on
I'm Gone

Daylight lyrics - alison krauss

Daylight falls and I'm lost in the big parade.
Hold my hand, darling, I'm afraid of the daylight.
Shade is dark.
Cool and languid for life or love.
Safe in shadows; never stark as the daylight.
As the daylight.

When I was just knee high,
My Momma told me, never try,
To be someone that I am not.
Yet over time I had forgot,
The wandering child, so lost at play:
He's found himself but he can't find his way,
In the daylight.
Oh, the daylight.

Ooh, daylight.
Ooh, daylight.

Life is short, and there's no turning back the time.
Fragrant meadows and rocks to climb in the daylight.
In my mind,
There's a corner I need to turn.
Lessons lived is a lesson learned in the daylight.
In the daylight.

I miss the forest shade,
You took me there, the promise I made,
To never leave the dark so deep.
Safe and soothing, yet I fear,
As I recall and now reflect,
I see it's safer to connect,
To the daylight.
Oh, the daylight. (Light.)

Ooh, daylight.
Ooh, daylight.

Daylight falls and I'm lost in the big parade.
Hold my hand, darling, I'm afraid of the daylight.
Of the day...

Bright Sunny South lyrics - alison krauss

From the bright sunny south to the war, I was sent,
E'er the days of my boyhood, I scarcely had spent.
From it's cool shady forests and deep flowing streams,
Ever fond in my mem'ry and sweet in my dreams.

Oh, my dear little sister, I still see her tears.
When I had to leave home in our tender years.
And my sweet gentle mother, so dear to my heart,
It grieved me sincerely when we had to part.

Said my kind-hearted father as he took my hand:
"As you go in defence of our dear native land,
"Son, be brave but show mercy whenever you can.
"Our hearts will be with you, 'til you 'turn again."

In my bag there's a bible to show me the way,
Through my twelfth year on earth and to Heaven some day.
I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword,
In defence of this land and the word of the Lord.

Stars lyrics - alison krauss

Stood out in the rain.
Let it soak me down,
Before I called you...
I called you.

You did not see me there,
Hidden by the dark,
Beneath your window,
But I saw you.

When putting on a face for the mirror on the wall.
Dreaming that the looking glass is you.
Catching my fondest gazes;
Living through my fickle phases.
I love you.

Spend my time on 'phones,
Tryin' just to talk,
But you didn't answer...
You let it ring.

Spend my nights alone,
Catching fallin' stars,
To give to you, love.
They're just for you.

Stars fall every time a lover has to face the truth.
And far too many stars have fell on me.
And as they trail the skies,
And burn their paths upon my eyes,
I cry.

And it's getting easier, each day, to weep about you.
Harder, every night, to sleep without you.
How many years must I be,
Driven by this dream of love with you?

It All Comes Down To You lyrics - alison krauss

Who do you think you're talkin' to.
You know me, and I know you.
Your silence and your stony face,
You don't have the ground to waste.
Your love is gone, 'cos it all comes down to you.

What can we say when all is said?
A house divided cannot stand.
Your head and heart and chary gaze,
Life is just too short to waste.
Your love is gone, 'cos it all comes down to you.

I've paid for you and you don't seem to mind.
I'm bending over backwards; you're not satisfied.
What more can I offer, to leave 'pon the alter?
Love is gone, 'cos it all comes down to you.

What can we do when all is done?
Your life's not the only one.
Just take a look beyond yourself,
The reason of your private hell:
Your love is gone, 'cos it all comes down to you.

I've paid for you and you don't seem to mind.
I'm bending over backwards; you're not satisfied.
What more can I offer, to leave 'pon the alter?
Love is gone, 'cos it all comes down to you.

Take Me For Longing lyrics - alison krauss

Don't choose me because I am faithful.
Don't choose me because I am kind.
If your heart settles on me, I'm for the taking.
Take me for longing or leave me behind.

I would be, for you, a fire in a rainbow,
I would be, for you, an opening door.
Time and hard lessons are one kind of wisdom.
Try to forget them or love me no more.

I'm not asking your heart to believe me.
I'm not asking for promise or pledge.
Whatever the answer, it's yes that's the question.
I am the fool dancin' over the edge.

Don't choose me because I am faithful.
Don't choose me because I am kind.
If your heart settles on me, I'm for the taking.
Take me for longing or leave me behind.

New Favorite lyrics - alison krauss

New Favorite
They all say it
I'll say it too
You've got a new favorite

You're old standby
your right hand guy
is nothing new
you've got a new favorite

Why do you lie about love?
I saw the light go out

And should I go
you won't say so
I know its true
I know you've got a new favorite
I know you've got a new favorite

You've got a new favorite

"Forget About It" (1999)

Stay lyrics - alison krauss

Where have you been,
My long lost friend?
It's good to see you again.
Come and sit for a while
I've missed your smile
Today the past is goodbye.
Time can't erase
A lover's embrace.
Can't you hear it calling?
A new day dawning
You were longing to find.

Love's taken you far
Away from my heart,
And I've been here all alone.
Have your eyes failed to find
What took you from mine,
A vision that's faded through time?
But you sailed away,
A fine summer's day,
Cause you heard it calling,
A new day dawning,
You were longing to find.

There is a way to make you stay.
Darlin don't turn away
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay

There is a way to make you stay.
Darlin don't turn away.
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay.

Forget About It lyrics - alison krauss

Forget about it
I'm admittin' I was wrong
And I'll just take what's mine
And walk right out the door
Forget about it
I'll split and I'll be gone
And you'll have memories
You'll find hard to ignore
'Cause after all
I see you sometime
Maybe when I can't recall
How you drove me crazier
Forget about it
When forever's over
I won't remember how much
I loved you anymore
Forget about it
Put me out of your head
Now that you're free and easy
Out there on the town
Forget about it
When you're lying in bed just wishing
I was there to lay you down

'Cause after all
I see you sometime maybe
When you will recall
How I drove you crazier
Forget about those starlit nights
Laying by the fireside
Holding you tight
I can't remember when I felt so right
So just forget about it

Forget about it
When you see me on the street
Don't wink, don't wave
Don't try to tease me with your smile
Forget about it
If we chance to meet somewhere
Don't think it's cause I'm trying to reconcile

'Cause after all
I see you sometime maybe
When I can't recall
How you drove me crazier
Forget about those starlit nights
Laying by the fireside
Holding you tight
I can't remember when I felt so right
So just forget about it

It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference lyrics - alison krauss

Do you remember the last time I said
If I ever thought of lying
I'd rather think of dying instead
And the last time you called me
To say we were through
How it took a million tears
Just to prove they all were for you

But it wouldn't have made any difference,
If you loved me
How could you love me
When it wouldn't have made any difference,
If you loved me
You just did not love me

'Cause I know of hundreds of times I could be
In the most unfaithful arms
That you always picture me
Though I can't always show proof I was true
No one else could change my mind
Or stop me coming home to you

But it wouldn't have made any difference,
If you loved me
How could you love me
When it wouldn't have made any difference,
If you loved me
You just did not love me

Enough to believe me
Enough not to leave me
Enough not to look for
A reason to be unhappy with me
And make me regret ever wanting you

It wouldn't have made any difference
Wouldn't have made any difference

Maybe lyrics - alison krauss

Yesterday the odds were stacked
In favor of my expectations
Flyin' above the rest
Never fallin' from the nest
Tuesday came and went and now
I'm in a little situation
Maybe it's for the best
I can live alone, I guess

Maybe I can stand alone
Maybe I'm strong as stone
Even though the bird has flown
Maybe he'll fly on home

Forgive me if I'm keeping you
Apart from better conversation
Hung up on all my doubt
Trying to sort the whole thing out
Tell me that I'm smart enough
To deal with all the information
Spinning inside my head
Every word he ever said

Maybe I can stand alone
Maybe I'm strong as stone
Even though the bird has flown
Maybe he'll fly on home

Maybe I can stand alone
Maybe I'm strong as stone
Even though the bird has flown
Maybe he'll fly on home

Empty Hearts lyrics - alison krauss

Are you leaving, are you going?
Did you think you could lose that feeling
Without me knowing?
Are you wishing you'd never met me?
Does it take some train whistle blowing
To forget me?

All the losing
And the knowing that you love her still
Could be nothing to what empty hearts must feel
Tell me what an empty heart must feel

Are you leaving, are you going?
Did you think you could lose that feeling
Without me knowing?
All the losing
And the knowing that you love her still
Could be nothing to what empty hearts must feel
Tell me what an empty heart must feel

Never Got Off The Ground lyrics - alison krauss

My father was a farmer
But his head was in the sky
He worked everyday but Sunday
'Til the day he died
He prayed for rain and thunder
And listened for the sound
In the dry years he went under
He never got off the ground

We all dream when we're younger
That we will do great things
Me, I used to have a hunger
To wear a pilot's wings

But the circle's that I ran in
Turned my head around
And the planes I had my plans in
Never got off the ground

Don't raise your hopes
You hear so many say
The higher they get
The closer they are to flying away
Fly away..

Don't raise your hopes
You hear so many say
The higher they get
The closer they are to flying away

They say there but for fortune
Is the way it would have been
If we could take a bigger portion
We'd fill our hands again
You see them on the sidewalks
In the parks all over town
Those who've taken flight
Never got off the ground

Ghost In This House lyrics - alison krauss

I don't pick up the mail
I don't pick up the phone
I don't answer the door
I'd just as soon be alone
I don't keep this place up
I just keep the lights down
I don't live in these rooms
I just rattle around

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shadow upon these walls
As quietly as a mouse I haunt these halls
I'm just a whisper of smoke
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house

I don't care if it rains
I don't care if it's clear
I don't mind staying in
There's another ghost here
He sits down in your chair
And he shines with your light
And he lays down his head
On your pillow at night

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shadow upon these walls
I'm living proof of the damage
Heartbreak does
I'm just a whisper of smoke
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
And took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house
Oh, I'm just a ghost in this house

It Don't Matter Now lyrics - alison krauss

It's finally come
Is that sorry on your breath?
Where were you when I was sitting back here
Missing you to death?
It don't matter now
How, I wanna know
Can you tell me plain and true
How high will you fly
Without me there to be your sky?
Well, it don't matter now

Don't mean to leave you standing on your own
I think back on days and nights we had long ago
Maybe love is just a game you play
This much I do know
It don't matter now

It's finally come
Is that sorry on your breath?
Where were you when I was sitting back here
Missing you to death?
It don't matter now
Now I don't tell stories
And I don't pretend
I won't be around to say I told you then
Cause it seems like something's finally broken
That'll take a lot of mend
But it don't matter now

Is that sorry on your breath?
Where were you when I was sitting back here
Missing you to death?
It don't matter now
It don't matter now
It don't matter now

That Kind Of Love lyrics - alison krauss

Who would sell their soul for love?
Or waste one tear on compromise
Should be easy enough
To know a heartache in disguise
But the heart rules the mind
And the going gets rough
Pride takes the fall
When you find that kind of love

I can't help feeling like a fool
Since I lost that place inside
Where my heart knew its way
And my soul was ever wise
Once innocence was lost
There was not faith enough
Still my heart held on
When it found that kind of love

Though beauty is rare enough
Still we trust
Somehow we'll find it there
With no guarantee
It seems to me
At least it should be fair

But if it's only tears and pain
Isn't it still worth the cost
Like some sweet saving grace
Or a river we must cross
If we don't understand
What this life is made of
We learn the truth
When we find that kind of love
Cause when innocence is lost
There is not faith enough
We learn the truth
When we find that kind of love

Could You Lie lyrics - alison krauss

Go on and lie I've heard it all before
You had no shame
This pain I feel you've never known
The rain outside is shifting in the wind
The road is looking lonelier
Alone again

Love is real
Then love goes on and on
The words you say condemn you
As the guilty one
I guess you're not the kind you claim to be
Always looking out to get your love for free

Could you lie and say you love me just a little
One more wrong will keep us one more night
When quiet fades at the light of day
I see the truth
It's on your face again

When morning breaks my heart won't understand
Spend a lifetime raising houses on the sand
The rain outside is shifting in the wind
The road is looking lonelier
Alone again

Could you lie and say you love me just a little
One more wrong will keep us one more night
When quiet fades at the light of day
I see the truth
It's on your face again

Dreaming My Dreams With You lyrics - alison krauss

I hope that I won't be that wrong anymore
I hope that I've learned this time
I hope that I find what I'm reaching for
The way that it is in my mind

Someday I'll get over you
I'll live to see it all through
But I'll always miss
Dreaming my dreams with you

I won't let it change me
Not if I can
I'd rather believe in love
And give it away
As much as I can
To those that I'm fondest of

Someday I'll get over you
I'll live to see it all through
But I'll always miss
Dreaming my dreams with you

Someday I'll get over you
I'll live to see it all through
But I'll always miss
Dreaming my dreams with you

"So Long So Wrong" (1997)

So Long So Wrong lyrics - alison krauss

I know I'll be lonesome
That brings about a little fear
I know I'll be sad and I'll be blue
I have given the best of me
When I forgot to say to you
What you forgot to say to me
So long, so wrong

I have tried and cared, baby, it was never enough
In your mind I never had a clue
So I'll repave the same old road I'm on
Where I forgot to say to you
What you forgot to say to me
So long, so wrong

Did we take forever in vain
Into the past
Did we think forever was really gonna last

You have tired me with your wanting ways
You can't buy yourself to be complete
I have given up caring anymore
Once you were big in a world that's small
And now you're all alone

Have we taken forever in vain
Into the past
Did we think forever was really gonna last

No Place To Hide lyrics - alison krauss

When I was a child
I used to love to watch the rain
I'd stand under the downspout
Let the water cool my brain
I never thought to worry
If the river rose too high
That all the seeds we planted
Would get washed out with the tide
But now I am a man
And I need a place to hide

[Chorus:]
But there's nowhere to run
And there's no place to hide
Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide

When I was a young man
I could work through wind and rain
I never thought to worry
Had no reason to complain
I thought that I was standing
On a rock so firm and strong
But it was easy then to see
Just what was right
And what was wrong
But now I am a man
I won't be hanging round too long

When I was a child
I used to love to watch the rain
I'd stand under the downspout
Let the water cool my brain
I never thought to worry
If the river rose too high
And all the dreams we planted
Would get washed out with the tide

[Chorus]

Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide

Deeper Than Crying lyrics - alison krauss

Leaving is the longest word I ever learned
In the time it takes to say it, the whole world has turned
If a heartbeat lasts a lifetime then I've lived before
`cause I remember standing at this open door

[Chorus:]
This path is not the one I'd choose to travel
Even as we watch what tied us unravel
And the tears fall like rain
Deeper than crying, the loving still remains

Neither wants to be the one to say goodbye
And neither wants to be the one who's left to cry
But in our secret heart of hearts we both know
That the time for patching up has passed and it's time to go

[Chorus]

So I'll be the one to pull our tangled lives apart
I won't dodge the angry words that hide a broken heart
And my calm fare-thee-wells cannot obscure
That deep inside, my heart is also hurtin' so

[Chorus]

I Can Let Go Now lyrics - alison krauss

It was so right
It was so wrong
Almost at the same time
The pain and ache
A heart can take
No one really knows
But when the memories cling and take you there
Till you no longer care
You can let go now

It's not right for me
To cling to you
Somehow I just needed time
From what was to be
It's not like me
To hold somebody down
But I was tossed high by love
Almost never came down
Only to land
Where no love is found
And I'm no longer bound
I can let go now

The Road Is A Lover lyrics - alison krauss

I met a man
Traveling down the road
He looked me in the eye
And he gave me a ring
And he gave me a rose
And he told me some gypsy lies

[Chorus:]
The road is a lover
You never recover
Not now or any time soon
My head starts to spin
When I think where I've been
Playin' twin to an old fiddle tune, oh
As the wind chases after the moon

Through the kindness
Shown me that day
I gave him this melody
And we sang in duet
`Neath the stars in the sky
And the shadows of dancing trees

[Chorus]

It Doesn't Matter lyrics - alison krauss

It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
It doesn't matter if I cry
Don't matter if I bleed
You've been on a road
Don't know where it goes or where it leads

It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
If you've made up your mind to go
I won't beg you to stay
You've been in a cage
Throw you to the wind you fly away

It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
It doesn't matter if I cry
Doesn't matter if I bleed
Feel the sting of tears
Falling on this face you've loved for years

Find My Way Back To My Heart lyrics - alison krauss

I used to laugh at all those songs
`bout the rambling life, the nights so long and lonely
Well, I ain't laughin' now
Now that I'm caught up, it seems
In all the same ambitious dreams
That only lonely life allows

And the home I don't go home to
The friends I don't see
Aren't the part of this life
That endears it to me

If that's the price I have to pay
For doing things my own way
Then it's what I'll have to do somehow

[Chorus:]
Till I find my way back to my heart
For there's no one but me's gonna take my part
It's too early to say that it's over
Or to find we can make a new start
It's too early to say
Till I find my way back to my heart

I thought at least we'd meet again
Since we have been the best of friends and lovers to each other
Meet again and speak our minds
Force no issues, turn no blind eye
Toward the road that lies ahead

But it seems that I missed you
By a coast and a song
When time gets so short
"So what?" turns to "so long"

I cannot keep your love inside
It's a flame I cannot hide forever
In the name of hanging on

[Chorus]

I used to laugh at all those songs
`bout the rambling life, the nights so long and lonely

I'll Remember You, Love, In My Prayers lyrics - alison krauss

When the curtains of night are pinned back by the stars
And the beautiful moon sweeps the sky
Dewdrops from Heaven are kissing the rose
It's then that my memory flies

Well, upon the wings of a beautiful dove
I'll hasten this message of cheer
And I'll bring you a kiss of affection and say
I'll remember you love in my prayers

Now the angels of Heaven are guarding the good
As God has ordained them to do
In answer to prayers that I offer to Him
I know there's one waiting for you

Now go where you will upon land or on sea
And I'll share all your sorrows and cares
At night as I kneel by my bedside to pray
I'll remember you, love, in my prayers

Well at night as I kneel by my bedside to pray
I'll remember you, love, in my prayers

Looking In The Eyes Of Love lyrics - alison krauss

I wonder should I tell you
`bout all the crazy things I've ever done
I've been searching all my life
And when I should have stayed
I tried to run
I was searching for an answer
In a world full of strangers
But what I found was never real enough
Now that I've found you
I'm looking in the eyes of love

Darlin' you've been good to me
You are so much more than I deserve
I never thought that I would find
Someone who's so sweet and kind like you
Please believe me when I say
This time I won't run away
I swear by all of heaven's stars above
Now that I've found you
I'm looking in the eyes of love

[Chorus:]
Looking in the eyes of love I can see forever
I can see you and me walking in this old world together
Lord my heart's found a home
I've been dreaming of
Now that I've found you
I'm looking in the eyes of love

[Chorus]

Pain Of A Troubled Life lyrics - alison krauss

I've lived a dozen lifetimes in twenty-some-odd years
Got no use for trouble, got no use for tears
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

[Chorus:]
I've had my share of sorrow, more than you could know
Save your lies and alibis, I've heard that tune before
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

You're out all night, asleep all day, so pack it up and leave
I've got no use for trouble, trouble's using me
Don't you see my love won't be forever deaf and blind
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Can't you see that love can't be forever deaf and blind?

Happiness lyrics - alison krauss

With your love I was complete
Like a haven safe from harm
Till the bitter stole the sweet
I was perfect in your arms
A precious while I had your smile
Till it all fell apart with one change of heart

The pain and regret will fade but a fact of love will still remain
You can't always trust happiness
Love like a sweet parade till the saddest part when the music fades
You can't always trust happiness

If a single star I see
Ever made a wish come true
It would bring you back to me
But the best my heart can do
Is to love again, I don't know when
Still it's worth all I fear, the heartaches and the tears

Love like a lesson learned when we pass the point of no return
You can't always trust happiness
There in love's steady glow hides the power to hurt us so
You can't always trust happiness

Blue Trail Of Sorrow lyrics - alison krauss

Blue trail of sorrow
Lies upon the ground
And I get so lonely
Since you let me down

Well, I used to be so happy
Walking on these streets
Now there's just sadness
Everywhere I meet

[Chorus:]
Start walkin', baby
Walk all over town
Sweet tears of sadness fallin' down
Keep lookin', baby
I won't be around
Blue trail of sorrow on the ground

Now when I had a dollar
You'd stick right by me
Now I've got nothin'
But blues for company

Well, I think I'll leave tomorrow
I'm tired of this old town
But it won't be hard to find me
If you look down on the ground

[Chorus]

There Is A Reason lyrics - alison krauss

I've seen hard times and I've been told
There isn't any wonder that I fall
Why do we suffer, crossing off the years
There must be a reason for it all

I've trusted in You, Jesus, to save me from my sin
Heaven is the place I call my home
But I keep on getting caught up in this world I'm living in
And Your voice it sometimes fades before I know

Hurtin' brings my heart to You, crying with my need
Depending on Your love to carry me
The love that shed His blood for all the world to see
This must be the reason for it all

Hurtin' brings my heart to You, a fortress in the storm
When what I wrap my heart around is gone
I give my heart so easily to the ruler of this world
When the one who loves me most will give me all

In all the things that cause me pain You give me eyes to see
I do believe but help mine unbelief
I've seen hard times and I've been told
There is a reason for it all

Oh, Atlanta lyrics - alison krauss

Same old place
Same old city
What can I do?
I'm falling in love

I'm just an old hound dog
Roaming around, oh Lord

No need to worry
There ain't no hurry cause I'm
On my way back to Georgia
On my way back to Georgia

When I remember all those crazy days and crazier nights
Can't you hear the music playing?
You must have heard them saying
We're gonna rip 'em up and light up the night

Oh, Atlanta
I hear you calling
I'm coming back to you one fine day
No need to worry
There ain't no hurry cause I'm
On my way back to Georgia
On my way back to Georgia

Same old place
It's the same old city
What can I do?
I'm falling in love

I'm just an old hound dog
Roaming around, Lord, Lord
I've got all this and Heaven above

I'm coming back to you one fine day, hey
No need to worry
There ain't no hurry cause I'm
On my way back to Georgia
On my way back to Georgia

Baby, Now That I've Found You lyrics - alison krauss

Baby,
now that I've found you
I won't let you go
I built my world around you
I need you so,
baby even though
You don't need me
now

Baby,
now that I've found you
I won't let you go
I built my world around you
I need you so
Baby even though
You don't need me,
You don't need me oh, no

Baby, baby,
when first we met
I knew in this heart of mine

That you were someone I couldn't forget.
I said right,
and abide my time

Spent my life looking
for that somebody
to make me feel like new
Now you tell me that you want to leave me
But darling, I just can't let you

[guitar & fiddle solo]

Baby, baby,
when first we met
I knew in this heart of mine
That you were someone I couldn't forget.
I said right,
and abide my time

Spent my life looking
for that somebody
to make me feel like new
Now you tell me that you want to leave me
But darling, I just can't let you

Now that I found you
I built my world around you

I need you so, baby even though
You don't need me now

Baby, now that I've found you
I won't let you go
I built my world around you
I need you so
Baby even though
You don't need me
You don't need me no, no

Broadway lyrics - alison krauss

I stood on faith and the corner of ambition
I came here to sink or swim
And to show them all that they were wrong
And though I never thought I'd make it this far

So the curtains are down
For the moment I'm someone
There were those in the wings who waited, who came this way
Now there gone
But there's always someone at home who never forgets who you are

When I'm down and I'm growing old
I won't be along no railroad track
I won't be bound to a life out in the cold
It's been a steady pace to keep my steps between these cracks on Broadway
And my stride in rhythm to the beat of home, sweet home

When I'm down and I'm growing old
I won't be along no railroad track
I won't be bound to a life out in the cold
It's been a steady pace to keep my steps between these cracks on Broadway
And my stride in rhythm to the beat of home, sweet home

Can't go on, I'm on the top of my better years
I'm going home, it's too lonesome on the bottom rung here

It's been a steady pace to keep my steps between these cracks on Broadway
And my stride in rhythm to the beat of home, sweet home

When God Dips His Pen Of Love In My Heart lyrics - alison krauss

When God dips His love in my heart

When God dips His pen of love in my heart
And He writes my soul a message He wants me to know
His spirit all divine fills a sinful soul of mine
When God dips His love in my heart

Well I said I wouldn't tell it to a livin' soul
How He brought salvation and He made me whole
But I found I couldn't hide such a love as Jesus did impart
Well He made me laugh and He made me cry, set my sinful soul on fire
When God dips His love in my heart

Well sometimes though the way is dreary, dark and cold
And some unburdened sorrow keeps me from the goal
I go to God in prayer, I can always find Him there
To whisper sweet peace to my soul

Well I said I wouldn't tell it to a livin' soul
How He brought salvation and He made me whole
But I found I couldn't hide such a love as Jesus did impart
Well He made me laugh and He made me cry, set my sinful soul on fire
When God dips His love in my heart

He walked up every step of Calvary's rugged way
And gave His life completely to bring a better day
My life was steeped in sin but in love He took me in
His blood washed away every stain

I said I wouldn't tell it to a livin' soul
How He brought salvation and He made me whole
But I found I couldn't hide such a love as Jesus did impart
He made me laugh and He made me cry, set my sinful soul on fire
When God dips His love in my heart

I Will lyrics - alison krauss

Who knows how long I've loved you?
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
If you want me to, I will

For (and) if I ever saw you
I didn't catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For (and) the things you do endear you to me
You know I will

I will

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For (and) the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know I will

I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby lyrics - alison krauss

Last night my dear the rain was falling
I went to bed so sad and blue
Then I had a dream of you

I dreamed I was strolling in the evening
Underneath the harvest moon
I was thinking about you

Then we met out in the moonlight
The stars were shining in your eyes
But another was there too

I don't believe you've met my baby
You looked at her, you looked at me
I wondered who you were taking to

I shook the hand of your stranger
But I was shaking more inside
I was still wondering who

Your arm was resting on her shoulder
You smiled at her, she smiled at you
Her eyes were filled with victory

She said "My brother wants to marry"
And then my heart was filled with ease
I knew that you would marry me

In The Palm Of Your Hand lyrics - alison krauss

If I could have the world and all it owns
A thousand kingdoms, a thousand thrones
If all the earth were mine to hold
With wealth my only goal

I'd spend my gold on selfish things
Without the love that Your life brings
Just a little bit more is all I'd need
'Til life was torn from me

I'd rather be in the palm of Your hand
Though rich or poor I may be
Faith can see right through the circumstance
Sees the forest in spite of the trees
Your grace provides for me

If I should walk the streets no place to sleep
No faith in promises You keep
I'd have no way to buy my bread
With a bottle for my bed

But if I trust the One who died for me
Who shed His blood to set me free
If I live my life to trust in You
Your grace will see me through

I'd rather be in the palm of Your hand
Though rich or poor I may be
Faith can see right through the circumstance
Sees the forest in spite of the trees

If I could have the world
If I could have the world and all it owns

"Every Time You Say Goodbye" (1992)

Every Time You Say Goodbye lyrics - alison krauss

Look at the sky baby
What do you see?
Looks like the tears that I cry
Fallin' down like rain on the ground
Every time you say goodbye

Take a look around now
Why don't you feel
The way that cold wind stings and bites
And your words just are like arrows through my heart
Every time you say goodbye

There's a restless feeling knocking at my door today
There's a shadow hanging 'round my garden gate
I read between the lines of words you can't disguise
Love has gone away, and put these tears in my eyes

Look at the sky baby, see how it cries?
Ain't it just like my tears
Fallin' down like rain on the ground
Every time you say goodbye

There's a restless feeling knocking at my door today
There's a shadow hanging 'round my garden gate
I read between the lines of words you can't disguise
Love has gone away, and put these tears in my eyes

There's a restless feeling knocking at my door today
There's a shadow hanging 'round my garden gate
I read between the lines of words you can't disguise
Love has gone away, and put these tears in my eyes

Another Night lyrics - alison krauss

Wind is blowin' 'round the cabin
I hate to hear that lonesome sound
I'm all alone and so downhearted
Since my true love she ain't around

I hate to see that sun a sinkin'
Another night to toss and turn
Another night to dream about her
Another night for her I yearn

She had no cause to go and leave me
For I had never done her wrong
She left our own little children
Now with another man she's gone

I hate to see that sun a sinkin'
Another night to toss and turn
Another night to dream about her
Another night for her I yearn

Children they are sound asleepin'
Oh they don't know that their mother's gone
What will I do when they awaken?
Can I tell them their mother's wrong?

I hate to see that sun a sinkin'
Another night to toss and turn
Another night to dream about her
Another night for her I yearn

Last Love Letter lyrics - alison krauss

I'm writing my last love letter
And for reasons now, I don't know where to start
Seems so many times I've written down "I love you"
Well I hope this time I can get that through your heart

Only fools will go on and keep talkin' to a wall
But I can't fool around forever
And if stone is the wall that you've built around your heart
Then I guess it's goodbye in this letter

And maybe I was wrong to ever think that you could love me
I was hoping you just couldn't find the time
Have my efforts been in vain with pen and paper?
Did you ever care, did I ever cross your mind?

Only fools will go on and keep talkin' to a wall
But I can't fool around forever
And if stone is the wall that you've built around your heart
Then I guess it's goodbye in this letter

In this letter
In this letter

Who Can Blame You lyrics - alison krauss

Who can blame you, though your heart's untrue
When you say it's my fault anyway
You turn your head from the tears I've shed
Though your heart is untrue, who can blame you

You justify yourself in your love for someone else
When you say, I never loved you anyway
Your vows were made in vain, although my love still remains
Though you broke my heart in two, who can blame you

Who can blame you, though your heart's untrue
When you say it's my fault anyway
You turn your head from the tears I've shed
Though your heart is untrue, who can blame you

In a heart of rusty steel you kept your love affair concealed
'Til the day she was asking you to stay
You turned your head from the tears I've shed
Though you broke a heart in two, who can blame you

Who can blame you, though your heart's untrue
When you say it's my fault anyway
You turn your head from the tears I've shed
Though your heart is untrue, who can blame you

Who can blame you, though your heart's untrue
When you say it's my fault anyway
You turn your head from the tears I've shed
Though your heart is untrue, who can blame you

You turn your head from the tears I've shed
Though your heart is untrue, who can blame you

It Won't Work This Time lyrics - alison krauss

You walked up yesterday and you told me you were leavin'
Left a note sayin' momma won't be back
But you'll come back and I've got news for you dear
You won't have a home and that's a fact

Don't you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness
Pack your bags and move on down the line
Don't you roll them eyes at me, tellin' me your sorry
It's too late babe, and it won't work this time

I've always been around, Lord when you needed someone
I played the role 'til I knew each line by heart
But now it's time to change, won't you find another playmate
Someone who'll be glad to play the part

Don't you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness
Pack your bags and move on down the line
Don't you roll them eyes at me, tellin' me your sorry
It's too late babe, and it won't work this time

Don't you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness
Pack your bags and move on down the line
Don't you roll them eyes at me, tellin' me your sorry
It's too late babe, and it won't work this time

Way up north where the snow flies and the sun don't hardly shine
If it weren't for my true love, I'd long ago lost my mind
I'd long ago lost my mind

There's good folks here, good folks there, most everywhere I go
But the land of my heart is down where the snow white cotton grows
Where the snow white cotton grows

When the river runs over from the melting snow, we'll take to the higher ground
When the water goes down again we'll saddle our old paint
We'll be homeward bound
Me and my love will be homeward bound

Heartstrings hold tighter than the roots of a live oak tree
Holdin' through tornado winds
Tougher than timber, stronger than steel
They'll guide me back southward again
They'll guide me back southward again

When the river runs over from the melting snow, we'll take to the higher ground
And when the water goes down again we'll saddle our old paint
We'll be homeward bound
Me and my love will be homeward bound

I Don't Know Why lyrics - alison krauss

I don't know why the sky is so blue
I don't know why I'm so in love with you
If there were no music, I would not get through
I don't know why I know these things, but I do

I don't know why somewhere dreams come true
I don't know where we'll find a place for you
Every time you look that way I lay down my life for you
I don't know why I know these things, but I do

I don't know why sun can make you cry
I don't know how I'm bound to get you back, but I'll try
They don't mean to cause you pain, they're just afraid of loving you
I don't know why I know these things, but I do

I don't know why the trees grow so tall
I don't know why I don't know anything at all
If there were no music, I would not get through
I don't know why I know these things, but I do, I do
I don't know why I know these things, but I do

Cloudy Days lyrics - alison krauss

Dark clouds hangin' over me
When will they go away?
Rain is in my eyes and I can't see
Life's become just cloudy days

Why she done me like she done
I guess I'll never know
She knows I need her more than anyone
I made a point to let it show

Cloudy days don't the sun ever shine anymore?
Stormy weather will you always be around?
When I'm down, I can't stand cloudy days

I recall a time when times were good
Lord, it seems so long ago
But you know they say if rain won't come
Then love has no chance to grow

Cloudy days don't the sun ever shine anymore?
Stormy weather will you always be around?
When I'm down, I can't stand cloudy days

Cloudy days don't the sun ever shine anymore?
Stormy weather will you always be around?
When I'm down, I can't stand...

Cloudy days don't the sun ever shine anymore?
Stormy weather will you always be around?
When I'm down, I can't stand cloudy days

Stormy weather will you always be around?
When I'm down, I can't stand cloudy days

New Fool lyrics - alison krauss

Sad songs and teardrops will surely mend this broken heart
Time forgets these bitter things I feel
But your days are numbered
You'll learn your lesson well
When you finally play a heart that plays for real

There's a new fool somewhere waiting
For your old fashion heartbreak love affair
She'll see through your intentions
With each lie that you tell
And the old ways will go out with the new some way

Leaving was so easy
But old hands do make fancy moves
And I for one fell victim to your game
But someday, you'll see that cold hearts can be broken too
What goes round must come around your way

There's a new fool somewhere waiting
For your old fashion heartbreak love affair
She'll see through your intentions
With each lie that you tell
And the old ways will go out with the new some way

Shield Of Faith lyrics - alison krauss

Sometimes I'm battle weary
I forget to use my shield
The arrows pierce my armor
And I stumble in the filed

A shield won't do much good if it's hangin' by your side
Keep the shield of faith before you if you want to stay alive

I'll think my life is over
But the Lord he comes to me
He heals my wounded spirit
And he sets me on my feet

A shield won't do much good if it's hangin' by your side
Keep the shield of faith before you if you want to stay alive

Sometimes your battle weary
But the war's already won
Keep your head and hold your shield high
'Til your days of life are done

A shield won't do much good if it's hangin' by your side
Keep the shield of faith before you if you want to stay alive

Keep the shield of faith before you if you want to stay alive

Lose Again lyrics - alison krauss

Save me, free me from my heart this time
Train's going down the track and I stay behind

Nothing can free me from this ball and chain
I made up my mind that I would live today
And you're keeping me going, I know it's insane
Cause I love you, and lose again

When the heart calls, the mind obeys
And it knows better than me
Hold on one more day and maybe he'll be true

Nothing can free me from this ball and chain
I made up my mind that I would live today
And you're keeping me going, I know it's insane
Cause I love you, and I'll lose again

Save me, free me from my heart this time
Train's going down the track and I stay behind

Nothing can free me from this ball and chain
I made up my mind that I would live today
And you're keeping me going, I know it's insane
Cause I love you, and I'll lose again

Another Day, Another Dollar lyrics - alison krauss

Another day, another dollar
That's what I'm working for today
Another day, another dollar
Sure can't buy my blues away

I'm just trying to make a living
Working jobs that I enjoy
But it ain't easy finding something
For this lonesome-hearted boy

Another day, another dollar
That's what I'm working for today
Another day, another dollar
Sure can't buy my blues away

You know my life is like a highway
Just too many roads to take
You know I'll try to take the right one
Just gets harder every day

Another day, another dollar
That's what I'm working for today
Another day, another dollar
Sure can't buy my blues away

Another day, another dollar
That's what I'm working for today, hey
Another day, another dollar
Sure can't buy my blues away

Another day, another dollar
Sure can't buy my blues away

Jesus Help Me To Stand lyrics - alison krauss

Through trials, troubles and care
I know Jesus my savior is there
Giving me faith through darkest days
Keeping me on the narrow way

Jesus savior, help me each day
Fill me with hope, fill me with faith
Darkness retreats at the touch of Your hand
Jesus savior, help me to stand

Jesus lived through darkest pain
Rejected by men, despising the shame
Man of sorrows, acquainted with grief
He gave his life so we may be free

Jesus savior, help me each day
Fill me with hope, fill me with faith
Darkness retreats at the touch of Your hand
Jesus savior, help me to stand

I know that Jesus died for me
Cancelled my debt at Calvary
Rose from the dead, unlocked Heaven's door
Trust in his love and live evermore

Jesus savior, help me each day
Fill me with hope, fill me with faith
Darkness retreats at the touch of Your hand
Jesus savior, help me to stand
