The One You Love Lyrics

by Terri Clark

He says its none of my damn business how much he drinks
And he doesnt have a problem, no matter what the whole town thinks
At his babys birthday party there was whiskey on his breath
Everybody wants to save him but hes not ready yet

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope thats in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, its the deepest wound there is
When you cant help the one you love

Her sister reads the Bible, her father sits and snores
Theyre with her every minute 'cause they may not have many more
She was dancing in New Orleans only seven weeks ago
Life may go on with out her but not the life we know

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope thats in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, its the deepest wound there is
When you cant help the one you love

When someones slipping away, right before your eyes
How useless we are is a painful surprise

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope thats in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, its the deepest wound there is
When you cant help the one you love
When you cant help the one you love
