ALL I CAN SAY IS WHY! by Sherrie Beckman

 

MY HEART IS TORN APART
FOR THE LOVE I HAD
HAS BEEN RIPPED APART
I WILL HOLD TO THE BITTER SWEET MEMORIES
MY HEART WILL NEVER DRIFT APART
I WILL MOVE ON LOOKING FOR THE FRESH MORNING DEW
AND I WILL ALWAYS STAY BEHIND TO GAZE AT THE MOON

THE WAIT WAS OVER
THE TIME WAS NEAR
TO SIT IN FRONT OF THE TELEVISION AND CHEER
FOR MONTHS I WAS BORED
HAD NOTHING TO DO
AND HAD NOTHING TO SEE BUT SIT AND DRINK BEER
ONLY VISIONS OF HERE COMES MY #3
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY ALL SUNNY AND CLEAR
ALL I CAN HEAR IS THAT #3 CHEER
BEFORE YOU'D SADDLE YOUR  BLACK STALLION
YOU HAD HUGGED YOUR SON
AND KISSED YOUR WIFE WITH PRIDE
THERE WERE TEARS IN MY EYES
FOR WHAT I JUST SAW
LITTLE DID I KNOW IT WOULD ALL END IN AWE


ALL THAT NIGHT I CRIED IN DISBELIEF
'TIL I FELL TO MY KNEES IN OVERWHELMING GRIEF
AS  MANY IN DISBELIEF YOU WERE MY HERO, THE INTIMIDATOR ALL IN BLACK
YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE AT THE FRONT OF THE PACK
AS I TRY TO DRY MY TEARS AND SAY GOODBYE
ALL I CAN THINK OR SAY IS
OH GOD WHY!
FOR YEARS YOU BROUGHT ME THRILLS AND JOYS
I BOUGHT HATS, COATS, SHIRTS
AND TOYS
ALL I CAN SAY IS WHY!
ALL I WANTED WAS TO SAY
GOODBYE!
YESTERDAY IS FOREVER IN MY MIND
NO MATTER WHERE TOMORROW WILL LEAD ME
A PART OF YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WITH ME
JUST LIKE THE INTIMIDATOR IN BLACK WHO NEVER LOOKED BACK

BUT STILL ALLS I CAN SAY
IS OH GOD WHY!! NOT MY INTIMIDATOR IN BLACK
