Nobody but You

That blood has stopped
My cuts have healed
The pain I felt
I no longer feel
Since you became
My lover and wife
I have a reason to live
To continue my life
A husband and father
A daughter and wife
I finally found my place
And the happiness in life
Without you two
I don't know where I'd be
Plastered with friends
Or dead on the streets
You saved my life
Te first time we kissed
Never had I felt
Such neverending bliss
The day we met
You changed my life
Since then I've been longing
For you to be my wife
The happiness I feel
You'd never understand
I can't explain it
So I just kiss your hand
One day you'll understand
Why my love is true
Why I have eyes for nobody
Nobody but you

I Don't Undertand

You don’t understand
Why I cry at night
Or why I’m afraid
When you turn down the light

The pain I’d feel
Every night
When he came home drunk
Wanting to fight

Baby, I love you
And you’re here with me
I’d never hurt you
You’re safe as can be

You don’t understand
It was all my fault
I came home early
Around three o’clock

When I shouldn’t be home
I caught him cheating
I told the Doctor I fell
I denied the beating

That’s no excuse
To hit your wife
I understand you were scared
Fighting for your life

You don’t understand
I didn’t wanna stay
It’s all my fault
I didn’t walk away

I lied to the Police
They took him anyway
He broke my arm,
And came back the next day

You can’t continue
Blaming yourself
You’re safe with me
You’re no longer in hell

I don’t understand
Why you love me so
Why you hold me tight
Without letting go

Because I love you
And that’s what you deserve
A man to be there for you
Not one you have to serve

A man to be your husband
And love you ‘til the end
Keeping you safe
And being your very best friend

You were always there
Through good times and bad
I'll always remember
The good times we had

From walking across the yard
You holding my hand
To building a birdhouse
or planting seeds in the land

You took me in
Accepted me as your own
Gave me safety,
And a loving home

Sneaking off to find you
At such a young age
Time has flown to fast
I'm not ready to turn the page

I'm laying here writing
Choking back tears
Thinking about you leaving
Trying to calm the fears

I know I never told you
Although I knew I should
I hoped it wouldn't come to this
But I always knew it would

I need to see you
Before you go
I need to tell you that I love you
Because I don't think that you know
