Write Me A Song Edwin McCain Lyrics

Kelly is raising her son
His dad left just after the birth
Now she's living on child support checks
I guess that's all that man was worth

She said, "I just need a man who will love me
But they all just want one night of sin"
I know our life could be better
I just don't know where I should begin

She said write me a song
One that makes all the girls cry
And the old women swoon at the sound of my tune
And the hearts of the lonely will fly, yeah, they'll fly

Beth she sings straight from her heart
She's hidden her tracks very well
But these days she's falling apart
And it makes me feel just like hell

She says, "Boy, you can't imagine my life
The death and the drugs and the pain
And though I keep running
I just can't seem to break from these chains"

She said, "Write me a song
Fill it all up with words
Like brilliant and heavenly make it sound just like me
Just like the first time I love you was heard

And now write me a song
One that makes all the girls cry
And the old women swoon at the sound of my tune
And the hearts of the lonely will fly

We're all feeding our lonely
Like it might go away
The doors of heaven swing wide
If we just find the right words to say

She said, "Write me a song
Fill it all up with words
Like brilliant and heavenly make it sound just like me
Just like the first time I love you was heard

And now write me a song
One that makes all the girls cry
And the old women swoon at the sound of my tune
And the hearts of the lonely will fly, yeah, fly

She said write me a song
(Write me a song)
She said write me a song
(Write me a song)
She said write me a song
(Write me a song)
She said write me a song
(Write me a song)
