(I WANT MORE) TIME WITH YOU

 

Locked my keys and phone in the car today

And I stood in the pourin’ rain

I almost broke a knuckle on the hood

As I cursed in vain

Ran home and climbed through the window

And while reachin’ for the spare

Saw the note that you had written

Scotch taped to that old vinyl chair

 

You wrote honey I want to apologize

For being so upset

‘Bout the car repairs and the bills

That we haven’t paid off yet

But the phone call we received this week

Well it changes everything

But I’ll be here beside you regardless

Of what tomorrow might bring

 

CHORUS:

And I’m sorry for the words I spoke

But I hope you understand

It’s no time to let minor things

Divide us in two

Recent news threw a wrench into

Everything we had planned

Hope you know that all I want is more

Yeah I WANT MORE

TIME WITH YOU

 

So I sat down there in the kitchen

‘Cause my head it swirled with thoughts

It’s true the news has shaken our world

It’s tied our hearts in knots

And it’s like you said babe it seems so wrong

But there’s no one to blame

So I picked up the pen and I wrote you back

I said I feel exactly the same

 

CHORUS:

And I’m sorry for the words I spoke

But I hope you understand

It’s no time to let minor things

Divide us in two

Recent news threw a wrench into

Everything we had planned

Hope you know that all I want is more

Yeah I WANT MORE

TIME WITH YOU (repeat)

 

BRIDGE:

And your loving words provide more strength

They fortify this heart of mine

For the road stretching out ahead now

Has a mighty steep incline

 

So I closed the door, ran back to the car

With your note still on my mind

And I realized I’d found much more than

The key I’d gone to find

Yeah the words you’d written me baby

They lifted all my fear

So I put the key in the ignition

And I shifted back into gear

 

 

CHORUS:

And I’m sorry for the words I spoke

But I know you’ll understand

It’s no time to let minor things

Divide us in two

Recent news threw a wrench into

Everything we had planned

Hope you know that all I want is more

Yeah I WANT MORE

TIME WITH YOU (repeat twice)
