Waiting For My Heartaches To Mend

WAITING FOR MY HEARTACHES TO MEND - Written by Carroll Bryant




Hungry for love
I guess that’s what I am
I’ve suffered enough
Too many times I’ve been damned
Push comes to shove
To this I can’t hide
Tender to touch like sweet apple pie

And so the search continues
For a love that may not exist
Too many times I’ve felt like I’ve been used
Getting so upset and pissed at the world
Waiting for my heartaches to mend
Getting mad at the girls
Who are trying so hard to pretend
Why do I dream and fantasize?
When am I gonna realize?
Is every girl filled with lies?
There’s just too much pain in the night

Hungry for shelter
Seeking trust and respect
Life is a liar
And it’s lying again
So pardon the pun
You weak hearted bitch
Clap off, clap on like an electrical switch

And so I guess I’ll just go crazy
And pound my head up against the wall
Too many whores and not enough ladies
Getting so upset and pissed at the world
Waiting for my heartaches to mend
Getting mad at the girls
Who are trying so hard to pretend
Why do I dream and fantasize?
When am I gonna realize?
Is every girl filled with lies?
There’s just too much pain in the night

Is love just a roulette wheel you spin in the middle of the dark?
You lay your money down and bet it won’t even break your heart
Is love just a blackjack table without chips because you’re playing for fun?
I’ll be damned if still I’m able to catch me a number twenty-one

I always feel like I am on the run
Damn it to hell, who is the one?

Hungry for love
I guess that must be me
I’m scratching like hell
From all these female fleas
Tit for the tat
What the hell does that mean?
I’m watching them come then watching them leave

And so there is no answer
To the questions that I just can’t ask
Too many times I’ve felt like I’ve been bruised
Getting so upset and pissed at the world
Waiting for my heartaches to mend
Getting mad at the girls
Who are trying so hard to pretend
Why do I dream and fantasize?
When am I gonna realize?
Is every girl filled with lies?
There’s just too much pain in the night

Too much pain
Too much pain for to fight
Too much pain

Waiting for my heartaches to mend

Heaven Knows

HEAVEN KNOWS - Written by Carroll Bryant


Where have you been girl?
I've been waiting
You've been gone for way too long

Don't ignore me
Just level with me
Is there something going on?

I can tell by the way you refuse me
Too many nights have slipped away
If it's over then just come out and tell me
I'll pack my things and leave right away 
Because
Heaven knows
And girl it shows
Out on the town again
Why am I not surprised?
Heaven knows
And girl it shows
You messed around again
I can see it in your eyes

Is there another foreign lover?
Does he do things that I can't do?
Is he the honey with all of the money, baby?
Making me look like some kind of fool

Don't look away because you are not an angel
It's looking right now like we are temporary
You have a silence that drives me fucking crazy
It's working real hard on my sanity 
Come on now
Heaven knows
And girl it shows
Out on the town again
Why am I not surprised?
Heaven knows
And girl it shows
You messed around again
I can see it in your eyes

I shake my head in disbelief
I don't want this thing to end
No matter what I do I can't get relief
Tell me that it's over because I don't want to pretend 
Anymore

I can tell by the way you refuse me
Too many nights have slipped away
If it's over then just come out and tell me
I'll pack my things and leave right away

Heaven knows
And girl it shows
Out on the town again
Why am I not surprised?
Heaven knows
And girl it shows
You messed around again
I can see it in your eyes

My Personal God

MY PERSONAL GOD - Written by Carroll Bryant


I fly through the air with my wings extended
On a flight that never ends
In my searches I have been befriended 
Living in a barrel of sins

Valley's and mountains
Eating from a beggars hands
Drinking from holy fountains
Waiting for what I cannot pretend

I still can't deny
That this is my life
I traveled so far to fall from grace
Just to meet my personal god

And if I held you in my arms so tight
And made sweet love to you
Would that make everything all right?
What good would ... would that do?

Would you agree that it's never enough?
Sex surely is not love
Shaking hands with the devil tonight
Just to meet my personal god

And my journey continues
With each and every step or drink that I take
With you or without you
It all depends on how many hearts that I break

And still it's not enough
To be true

I still can't deny
That this is my life
I traveled so far to fall from grace
Just to meet my personal god

Could it be me?
Could it be you?
Can you break free?
Can you be true?

Everything amazing about you
Boils in your veins with your blood
I've been searching hell and high water
Just to meet my personal god

Would you agree that it's never enough?
Sex surely is not love
Shaking hands with the devil tonight
Just to meet my personal god

Getting ready to break my plans
For tonight
Just to meet my personal god
