All I Ask

ALL I ASK - Written by Carroll Bryant



Who would have thought of thinking 
Of getting out of this mess we made
From to which our daily lives come
And go too far too fast

It's like we're driving down a highway
In a car that needs to be towed 
We can't escape the facts of our love
You and I both know 
It's going nowhere

All I ask is for your help
This relationship is a scary thing
All I ask is for your hand
The reason for this life is to marry a man
Everybody always seems to be in a hurry
Patience is a word that starts every war
No need to wait around and there's no reason to worry
We take our chances and sometimes we lose
Sometimes we win

That is what our love is for

Who could have ever tried to conceive 
Too many people living in too many romances
You could have told me and I would have never believed 
Too many perverts performing too many dances

In the end I don't think we really care
We just move on right to the next one 
When we're not here then we're over there
Spending our nights totally all alone

All I ask is for your help
This relationship is a scary thing
All I ask is for your hand
The reason for this life is to marry a man
Everybody always seems to be in a hurry
Patience is a word that starts every war
No need to wait around and there's no reason to worry
We take our chances and sometimes we lose
Sometimes we win

That is what our love is for 

Yeah, sure we can get a shovel and start to dig
That'd be okay
We do what we had to do
And maybe so we are to blame
You and me with the bullet holes
Buried right up to our dirty souls

It's like we're driving down a highway
In a car that needs to be towed 
We can't escape the facts of our love
You and I both know 
It's going nowhere

All I ask is for your help
This relationship is a scary thing
All I ask is for your hand
The reason for this life is to marry a man
Everybody always seems to be in a hurry
Patience is a word that starts every war
No need to wait around and there's no reason to worry
We take our chances and sometimes we lose
Sometimes we win

That is what our love is for

Two Lonely People

TWO LONELY PEOPLE - Written by Carroll Bryant


Good looking man
Good looking lady
Different directions as they walk down the street

They say hi as they walk on by
When deep inside they would really like to meet

They get home from their two little jobs
Feed the pets and turn on the T.V. screen

Lost in though as they gaze out of their windows
Innocently they both begin to dream

Two lonely people too lonely to discover
Two lonely people who don't have a lover
Two lonely people wishing for another
Two lonely people who don't have a lover
Life can be so cruel and we all know this is true
But it's worse when those two lonely people are me and you

They go to their kitchens and they fix a bite to eat
Take a lonely shower before trying to sleep

They toss and turn as their passion yearns
Close their eyes and get caught up in their fantasies

Two lonely people too lonely to discover
Two lonely people who don't have a lover
Two lonely people wishing for another
Two lonely people who don't have a lover
Life can be so cruel and we all know this is true
But it's worse when those two lonely people are me and you

They're on the brink as they think about the life they live
He thinks about her 
She thinks about him
There's so much that they could give 
To each other
But they're gone, gone, gone
And they're not coming back
And they're gone, gone, gone
On the edge of their climax
And this is where it ends
For everyone of them
Because you know it that they are not the only ones alone

Two lonely people too lonely to discover
Two lonely people who don't have a lover
Two lonely people wishing for another
Two lonely people who don't have a lover

Two lonely people too lonely to discover
Two lonely people who don't have a lover
Two lonely people wishing for another
Two lonely people who don't have a lover

Life can be so cruel and we all know this is true
But it's worse when those two lonely people are me and you

Extraordinary Girl

EXTRAORDINARY GIRL - Written by Carroll Bryant


You know I like to live my life on high
Leaving everyone that I pass by 
Just standing there and helpless in their tracks

Girl, you have this way I know
Of making me to want to take things slow
It's an affect on me that no one else could ever have

You're an extraordinary girl
In an otherwise ordinary world
You're a small town beauty queen with those big city dreams
Your personality impresses me
And your love just sets me free
And there's nowhere else that I'd rather be
Than living in an ordinary world with an extraordinary girl

It's like, every single day you have something sweet to say 
And when you touch me in the morning 
It moves me in every single way

It's like there's nowhere that I can hide
From wanting to burst from inside
All that I feel is all so real and baby, you know that I can't deny

You're an extraordinary girl
In an otherwise ordinary world
You're a small town beauty queen with those big city dreams
Your personality impresses me
And your love just sets me free
And there's nowhere else that I'd rather be
Than living in an ordinary world with an extraordinary girl

I want to keep on living inside all of this sunshine
I need you in the wet, wet rain
Even in the darkest night 
I need to speak your name

I want you inside all of this laughter
I need you to want the same
Even in the brightest rainbow
I need to speak your name

You know it comes as no surprise
The moment I'm near you I come alive
Making love and looking down at those heavenly eyes

You're an extraordinary girl
In an otherwise ordinary world
You're a small town beauty queen with those big city dreams
Your personality impresses me
And your love just sets me free
And there's nowhere else that I'd rather be
Than living in an ordinary world with an extraordinary girl

And there's nowhere else that I'd rather be
Than living in an ordinary world 
With an extraordinary girl
