A New Life

ffffffffffff

Finally, the fighting's over

ain't nobody crying round here anymore

the house is still and oh, so very quiet

ain't no sound but the swinging of that back door

 

For years I've heard  you lying, saying this was,

just a temporary thing

Then why'd it take you so many years when

he never even gave you a ring

 

I don't know what is in your tomorrows

I wish I could tell you what God intends to bring

All I know is my heart's been gray and clouded

and I hope now you remind it how to sing

 

I had to learn about relationships by hearing you half the night

One day you're fine, next day you're hit, next day it's

"everything will be alright"

From the beginning, you had the highest hopes for me

but don't you realize that all you ever asked was

that I learn, from all I see

 

I don't know what is in your tomorrows

Wish I could tell you what God intends to bring

All I know is my heart's been gray and clouded

and I hope now you remind it how to sing

 

I never thought you had the strength to leave him

Our lives are starting over today

so get your guitar and sing a song for a while

Let me welcome you to a brand new day

 

I said, I don't know what is in your tomorrows

wish I could tell you what God intends to bring

All I know is my heart's been gray and clouded

and I thank God you reminded it how to sing.
