Sister Double Happiness – You for you | Heart and Mind |

You for you

Sometimes I think about leaving home
Just pulling up stakes and go wandering
I don’t know where I belong
I hope what I’m doing is right
Lord, I pray I’m not wrong

‘Cause you know when you make mistakes
It’s really hard to right those wrongs
And you know when you cross life’s bridges
They are just as good as burned
And you know when you think that you’ve got it
It all just falls apart, don’t it?

I was hoping you would come along
Baby, there to keep me strong
I will keep you strong, too
I will never try to hold you down
I want you to stay around
I love you for you

‘Cause you know when you make mistakes
It’s really hard to right those wrongs
And you know when you cross life’s bridges
They are just as good as burned
And you know when you think that you’ve got it
It all just falls apart, don’t it?

I was hoping you would come with me
Baby, stay around to see
I will never do you wrong
I will never try to hold you down
I want you to stay around
