Song Lyrics

There's something in my heart singing,
A song I've not heard before,
Came to me as if in a dream,
when you walked through the door,
 I try to save the words of this tune,
Before it all drifts away,
so I can play it over and over again,
Forever and a day. 

What is this thing that I'm feeling,
 I 've never felt it before,
 Lifts me up to the highest high,
 And leaves me wanting more,
 what is this thing that feeling,
 Makes my emotions soar,
 Like a bird in a clear blue sky,
 And leaves me wanting more.

I've been scrubbing the floorboards,
 and been painting the walls,
 while I'm building this house for you,
 you don't even call.

 They say you're painting the town red,
 out there having a ball,
 I turn around in the debris,
 And you are nowhere at all.

you drunk me under the table,
 and threw me out of the door,
 you gave me nothing but nothing at all,
 I couldn't take any more,
 But now I hear from your sister,
 you've been asking for me,
 and I wonder if you came back,
 Just what my feelings would be


at end:

Like a bird in a clear blue sky,
 And leaves me wanting more.
