Lyrics
I met a girl from a small Hometown
Her form was small and her eyes were brown
It took a while for me to understand
She has the power to make me a happy man

Though her wit is bright and her face is shining
This cloud she molds has no silver lining
She has a man that shes calls her own
They plan to marry and to build a home

And though I haven’t told her what I plan to do
She shies away because she knows the truth
Someday she’ll soon have to make a choice
When fear releases its chain on my voice
She knows it’s true

And how she’s happy with that other man
Remains the hardest thing to understand
The feel is so right but the real is so wrong
My wisdom has weakened as you hear this song
I don’t know why

And if I ever get my chance with her
I’m sure I’ll even make her happier
My faith is strong, yes that’s my strongest trait
I have the patience just to sit and wait for her someday

For the love I need, I’d give anything
From the shirt on my back to these songs I sing
I need her love more than all I’ve got
I pray I don’t find that it’s all for not
I need her bad
