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
