This Song Is For You Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This song is for you, you know who you are
I won't embarrass you for callin' out your name
You're here every night, several night of drinks
Wearin' your superficial smile

You still wear the wedding band and you left hard work in hand
For a memory of a man who's chain and bound
Lord knows you need a man and an understandin' hand
Before you run completely out of love

You can't stay in love with a memory
You can't stay in love with a dream
Yet you've fallen in love with the picture on the wall
The sad part is that the picture is not of me

That cold December day, they took her man away
Never dreamin' of a gentle heart they've grown
Now she waits by the phone, she waits there all alone
But the only one who ever calls is me

Now I'm a prisoner of a slave to one way love
And I'd wish they let him go so I'd be free
Break this chains that bind and release this heart of mine
Before I run completely out of love

You can't stay in love with memory
You can't fall in love with a dream
Yet you've fallen in love with the picture on the wall
The sad part is that the picture is not of me
