Lyrics


On that early Summer night that brought you here, so far from your home 'neath Mount Rainier, it wasn't in my plans to fall for you.  But I'm so in love with you - what can I do?

You said you've met no one before like me.  And you know I feel the same about you too.  You're everything I'd ever want my lady to be.  And when you've gone, life might as well be through.

It seems so unfair when we've fallen this way - fallen so deeply in love to stay, that it should be  three-thousand lonely miles from here to that lovely mountain home you hold so dear.

But, you know, I guess it simply goes to prove that love is really blind - the old cliche is really true.  For, even though I know I can only lose, I just can't deny an unending love for you.  So when we say "goodbye" tomorrow, then I'll have nothing left but sorrow.  For until the end of time, I'll still love you.

And I'm writing you this song to let you know the way I feel, and if I could go with you that I would.  Some day, some way, perhaps there'll be a chance for you and me.  And if not, I'll always wish there could.

Lyrics


Some time ago I left my home down in the heart of Dixie. I felt a longing to be Westward bound. But, though I love to travel and see all the land’s great beauty, Montgomery always will be my hometown.

Montgomery, Alabama always will remain my home, no matter where my restless feet may roam. Not all the gold in California nor the sunny Kansas plain can outshine Montgomery, Alabama, even in the rain.

So many other places boast of glory and renown far greater than Montgomery, Alabam. But they don’t have the lady who lives in that southern town, who makes me feel the way no other can.

Montgomery, Alabama will be seeing me again, for I’m returning there soon as I can. And in her heart for me I know there burns an everlasting flame – makes me glad to see Montgomery even in this pouring rain.

In just a little while, back in Montgomery I will be - her city lights are now within my sight. And though it’s such a windy, rainy Alabama night, sunshine and bright blue skies are all I see.

Montgomery, Alabama always will remain my home, no matter where my restless feet may roam. Not all the gold in California nor the sunny Kansas plain can outshine Montgomery, Alabama, even in the rain.

Montgomery, Alabama will be seeing me again, for I’m returning there soon as I can. In that girl’s heart for me I know there burns an everlasting flame – makes me glad to see Montgomery even in this pouring rain . . . Montgomery in the rain . . . in the rain.

Lyrics


Louisville, Kentucky Lady, one more time, go on – break my mind. Walk away and leave me lonely, lonely and cryin’ – one more time.

Louisville, Kentucky Lady, you know I will surely forgive and forget all the pain you bring me. And, one day, with you I’ll live.


Louisville, Kentucky Lady, like your mighty river flows, my love for you no ending knows. And it will be callin’ you back to me.


Louisville, Kentucky Lady – Shepherdsville, Kentucky child – one of these days a woman you will be. And it won’t be a long, long while.

Louisville, Kentucky Lady, then you will know what love is of, and never hurt me or ever leave me. Together we’ll be ‘til called above.

Now, Louisville, Kentucky Lady, like the Ohio River flows, my love for you no ending knows. And it will be callin’ you back to me. Yes, Louisville, Kentucky Lady, like the Ohio River flows, my love for you no ending knows. And it will be callin’ you back to me. Leading you back to me, Louisville Lady.

Lyrics


I understand what you’re saying. But why you’re saying it I don’t know. All I know is my world is ending, for I see the time has come to let you go.

But I’ll remember you until my dying day. I won’t forget our love—there’s no way. Come let me hold you close once more before you go, for, my darling, I still love you so.

Now I can’t swear to you I’ll always love you. And one day, it’s true, the hurt may go. All I know is now, and now I know I want you, for, my darling, I still love you so.

And I’ll remember you until my dying day. I won’t forget our love—there’s no way. Come let me hold you close once more before you go, for, my darling, I still love you so. Yes, my darling, I still love you so.

(Ode To Jennifer)

When I see you there tonight, knowing it may be for the last time, I tell you, girl, I’ll be dissatisfied. But I won’t cry over what I know we never could’ve had, so please don’t worry about the way that I’ll get by. And, Jennifer, these feelings in my heart for you will never set me free.

For I could have made you love me, but you have to go away. And I know the way you feel, because it’s written on your face. And though I may never see you anymore, within my heart you’ll always be.

I don’t know if you’ll remember me the way I know I will always and forever remember you. But, Jennifer Anne, I can say that if we meet again someday, your memory in my heart will still be new. Perhaps, together, then we’ll be rewarded for the lonely, empty years.

And you could have made me love you, but you knew you couldn’t stay. Only now I wish you had tried, for it even hurts this way. But I know you know the way I feel, ‘cause, Jennifer, it’s written in my tears.

Yes, you could have made me love you, but you knew you couldn’t stay. Only now I wish you had tried, for it even hurts this way. But I know you know the way I feel, ‘cause, Jennifer, it’s written in my tears. Yes, I know you know the way I feel - Jennifer, it’s written in your tears.

Lyrics


So many ways, and for so long, you’ve tried to win my love. And, sometimes, pain was all your life was made of. But somewhere, deep inside, you’ve always found the strength to wait. Now, let me love you, if it’s not too late.

Since time has turned the pages of our lives and we’re apart, And I can see more clearly, now, I know within my heart. That no one in the world can ever love me like you do. And, darling, I just want to love you too.

I’m so afraid your weary heart will make you turn and flee, Because of all the pain you’ve suffered, just for loving me. And it would torture me to know that I had made you go— The one who loved me more than I may ever really know. So let me love you, if it’s not too late.

I’m so afraid your weary heart will make you turn and flee, Because of all the pain you’ve suffered, just for loving me. And it would torture me to know that I had made you go— The very one who loved me more than I can ever know. Please let me love you, if it’s not too late. I want to love you, if it’s not too late.

Lyrics


I've had more than my share of lover’s dreams that can’t come true. For whenever I really care it seems to always leave me blue. Now, once again, looking in your eyes, though that longing look I see, we both know too well that for you and me a song of love can never be.


You and I both know that friends is all we’re free to be, for these two roads we're traveling on are marked so differently. If our paths had come together in another time and way, then, perhaps, there could have been a you and me, and I might not have to say... I’d love to be your lover, and it hurts that I can only be your friend.

Our day must end before it starts, and what leads us to dismay Is that we’ll never know what joy we might have shared one day. We have to realize that your world and mine will never, ever be the same. So let’s call us friends FOREVER and then NEVER even start to fan this flame.

I never will forget the way your eyes and lips met mine, you melting in these loving arms of mine last night - so fine. But you can SURELY SEE it’s not our DESTINY to share the things that lovers do. And though I know it’s RIGHT, still, I have to FIGHT just to say these words to you. I’d love to be your lover and it hurts that I can only be your friend.


Yes, you know I’d be your lover if I could, but I’ll forever be your friend.

Lyrics


The stardust that glistens in your eyes and moon dust softly sprinkled through your hair: As I’m drawn beneath their spell, I realize you’re so much woman I can’t help but stare. But you’re so much more—you’re a lady too. Your ways and things you do reveal it’s true.

And if, tonight, I were to be with you, fall magically in love is what I’d do. By tomorrow there’d be no one else but you.

I thought my heart to someone else belonged. But so far away alone I’m not that strong. Could it be that loneliness has made me see in you some things that may not really be? Well, this time with you has opened up these eyes to the truth—I can not live a life of lies.

‘Cause if, tonight, I were to be with you, fall helplessly in love is what I’d do. And here’s hoping that you’d fall hard for me too.

If I leave her at the alter now she’ll cry. But if I walk away and leave you I will too. And I know it can’t be right for me to try to share my life with her and yet still dream of you. So kiss me softly in the misty light. And hold me close beneath the stars tonight.

For if, tonight, I were to be with you, fall deep in love with you is what I’d do. And tomorrow there’d be no one else but you.

Sweet lady, there’d be no one else but you.

Forever, there’d be no one else but you.

Lyrics


Every time I lay my eyes on you I nearly lose control. For, my love, I long to hold you close. Oh, and if you say to me “Take it easy – take it slow”, then I’ll have to tell you something you need to know.

…That I’m lost within your charm, overcome by your sweet smile. You warm me up with the light in your eyes. I'm captured by your loveliness, guilty of loving you, convicted of wanting to stay lost in your charm.

Now, I don’t care what people think of me for loving you so much, 'Cause I dream about your warm, sweet loving touch. Oh, and, Darling, I can wait for you – I’ve got all the time in the world. For my life begins on the day you say you’re my girl.

And I’m lost within your charm, overcome by your sweet smile. You warm me up with the light in your eyes. I'm captured by your loveliness, guilty of loving you, convicted of wanting to stay lost in your charm.

Oh, I’m lost within your charm, overcome by your sweet smile, lighted up by the glow in your eyes, captured by your loveliness, guilty of loving you, convicted of wanting to stay lost in your charm.

Girl, I’m lost within your charm, overcome by your sweet smile. You warm me up with the light in your bright eyes. I'm captured by your loveliness, guilty of loving you, convicted of wanting to stay lost in your charm. Oh, I plead guilty of longing to stay, forever, lost within your charm.

Lyrics


If ever you would look into my eyes, and see the love light glowing there for you, In just a little while you’d recognize that I’ve been loving you a long, long time. Then look a little deeper in my eyes, and see the love light growing there for you. And it won’t take you long to realize that I’ll keep loving you a long, long time.

So many years ago, when you first came into my life, I never let you know I’d fallen for you. For I knew then we could make it, but the time just wasn’t right. Still, I believed one day you’d love me too.

Well, now that time has come that I could see right from the start. And now there’s not one thing to hold us down. And I know you well enough to know that if you knew my heart You’d take my hand and we’d soar right off the ground.

So if ever you would look into my eyes, and see the love light glowing there for you, In just a little while you’d recognize that I’ve been loving you a long, long time. Then look a little deeper in my eyes, and see the love light growing there for you. And it won’t take you long to realize that I’ll keep loving you a long, long time.

Yes, if you look a little deeper in these eyes, then you’ll see the love light growing there for you. And before too long I know you’ll realize that I’ll keep loving you a long, long time.

You’ll know that I’ll be loving you a long, long time.

Sheila J. Hardin
6/21/62 – 5/26/04

December was a colder time than ever, Even though we had so little ice and snow. For December was the time I thought I'd never See her face or touch her heart before she’d go.

Twenty years had come and gone since last I'd seen her, For the path I chose led down a different road. When they told me Heaven's angels would soon be calling for her, Deep within my heart were so many things I needed her to know.

Don't let the wings of angels find your dear ones never knowing That they are the life within your soul—the reason your heart sings— A part of Heaven sent to earth that keeps your spirit glowing. And a silent love only brings regret—it came to me on Sheila's wings.

The Lord smiled down from Heaven as she was fading, And before she flew to Him, He granted time To share with her the story of a love kept waiting Since our childhood years, locked in this heart of mine.

And though I know she went to meet Him fully knowing Thoughts of her had brought me strength for thirty years. Regretful years with my true feelings for her never showing Are all that made me have to say farewell to her in tears.

Don’t let the…

Never let the wings of the angels find the ones you love not knowing They’re the very life within your soul—the reason your heart sings— A small part of Heaven come down to earth to keep your spirit always growing. And a silent love only brings regret—it came my way on Sheila's wings. Don’t let your silent love bring you the regret that flew to me on Sheila’s wings.
