lyrics

BLESS MY HEART (ALYSIA KRAFT)

I WAS EVERYBODY’S DARLIN WITH NO LOVE OF MY OWN
COULD HAVE HAD THEIR RESPECT IF I GAVE UP ALL MY OWN
AND KILLIN THEM WITH KINDNESS WAS ONLY KILLING ME SLOW

AND SOMETIMES FOLKS CAN GIVE YOU THE CREEPS
DON’T HAVE TO TALK TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT THEY THINK
AND I KNEW I WAS MORE THAN WHAT THEIR EYES ACCUSED

CHORUS
BLESS MY HEART FOR BREAKING
BLESS MY HANDS FOR LETTING GO
BLOW ME A KISS ON THE BREEZE WHEREVER YOU ARE
AND WHEN IT HITS ME I WILL KNOW
BLESS MY HEART FOR BREAKING
BUT KEEPING A STEADY BEAT
ALL THE WHILE I WAS BREAKING BABY
I WAS BREAKING FREE

I SAT DOWN AT THE TABLE WITH SOME REAL BIG THINKERS
THEY WERE MAKERS AND TALKERS AND TRUE BELIEVERS
BUT MAN, THEY MADE ME CRAZY ALWAYS TELLING ME WHAT I SHOULD THINK

SO I BOUNCED AROUND LIKE A RUBBER BALL
HITTING EVERY CEILING AND EVERY WALL
TILL I FINALLY FOUND SOME SOLACE WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL BOYS IN THE BAND

CHORUS

ALL OF THIS HOLDING MYSELF TOGETHER
WAS KEEPING MY HANDS PRETTY FULL
AND WALKING AWAY MEANT USING ALL OF MY SELF CONTROL
AND I BET THAT THOSE BYGONES ARE STILL GOING ON ABOUT THE MESS THAT I MADE BACK THERE…
BUT I DON’T CARE

I THOUGHT YOU WERE THE ONE
THEN I HAD ONE OR TWO MORE
AND I’VE SAID FOREVER TWICE BEFORE
I’LL LOVE YOU HARD, HONEY
BUT I AINT GONNA SAY HOW LONG


I FIGURE I’LL MAKE THE MUSIC IF YOU MAKE THE MONEY
YOU BRING THE BREAD AND I’LL BRING THE HONEY
YOU’D BE SO BLUE WITHOUT YOUR TRUE LOVE TROUBADOR

CHORUS

BLESS MY HEART FOR BREAKING
BUT KEEPING A STEADY BEAT
ALL THE WHILE I WAS BREAKING, BABY
I WAS BREAKING FREE
