This is one I have written for my wife (she hasn't heard it yet). We have been playing music together for 24 years and been married for 22. She is an amazing singer, mother and wife. I haven't always been the best husband in the world and this was something I did for her. While the words "I'm Sorry" aren't ever mentioned in the song, the whole thing is to let her know that I am just that....Sorry for the things I have put her through in my younger days. I've said before on here that every song doesn't have to be so personal, but this is not one of those. It's about as personal as I can get.

Verse 1:

Yesterday morning she crawled right out of bed
Stumbled to the kitchen looking for that first day's cigarette
She asked me if I had seen that old paperback she loves to read
No the end don't hold no surprise.....
She cries, cries..... Everytime

Verse 2:

Yeah it's been a little while since she got to do
The thing that she loves so much and that's
Playing her songs for you.
Some say when she opens her mouth
It sounds just like the Angels sing
And if you stick around for a while.....
She'll Smile, Smile..... Everytime


Chorus:

And every time I've spun undone
She continued to believe
I just need her to see
I meant every word I said
And I need a reprieve
From what I....
Used to be

Verse 3:

Everyday can't be Saturday in the month of June
And some days I think it's meant to get a little dark too soon
But still if I had my way
I'd give her a set of wings
I bet it wouldn't take but one try....
She'd fly.....fly..... Everytime


Chorus 2:

And every time I've spun undone
She continued to believe
I just need her to see
I meant every word I said
And I need a reprieve
From what I....
Used to be

Nice and warm picture. Did your wife hear it by now? I would have loved one like that.

Yes she did hear it. She wasn't supposed to yet though. Her Birthday is the 12th and we are playing that night. I was going to surprise her with it and just start the show a few minutes early without her, but she came in while the rest of us were working (rehearsing) on it and busted us. I had to tell her then what it was. She cried and probably gave me the longest hug I have had from her in 10 years.
