Carry you home
After the Wave - track 3
music and lyrics: Tracey Roberts © 2005

 

You were the one who came looking for me, I was caught unaware
But I had time on my side, or so I thought
So we had fun, and we were happy then, venturing everywhere
Contented, we laughed a lot and never fought
Then you asked for commitment from me but I just couldn't be sure
Were you my friend and lover or a lovely friend?
And so aloofness started creeping in, distancing us more and more
And then I knew it was the beginning of the end

I wish I could have loved you stronger
I wish I had have loved you longer
Oh baby if only I'd known (if only I'd known)
That time is a thief and deceiver
And it can love you or leave ya
Or it can carry you, carry you, carry you home

Then you fell into the abyss of lust but I just couldn't let go
So I stayed and watched as everything went wrong
Mama told me when I was young when it's love you will know
Why does learning that have to take so long?

I wish I could have loved you stronger
I wish I had have loved you longer
Oh baby if only I'd known (if only I'd known)
That time is a thief and deceiver
And it can love you or leave ya
Or it can carry you, carry you, carry you home

Why fight the demons?
The battle never ends
Timing and reasons
Have a mind and agendas of their own

Now you're married with a family and I won't see you again
Another fading memory to file
So I'll travel on my merry way with my career and my friends
But in my heart I hope I recognize love next time

I wish I could have loved you stronger
I wish I had have loved you longer
Oh baby if only I'd known (if only I'd known)
That time is a thief and deceiver
And it can love you or leave ya
Or it can carry you, carry you, carry you home

I wish I could have loved you stronger
I wish I had have loved you longer
carry you, carry you, carry you home
