Loving You Up Lyrics

Never Stop

(Randall Lee Anderson)


You're probably having second thoughts about me

You've got a right to know just how I feel

And I know you're tired of wondering if I really love you

And I bet you're wondering if I always will

Well I never was much for saying what I had to say

But starting now I'm changing my ways


I love you like a banker loves money, like a bee loves honey, like a hog loves slop

I love you and I'll never stop

I need you like a fish needs water, like clay needs a potter, like a farmer needs crop

I need you and I'll never stop


This song is probably more than you expected

The kind of thing you never thought you'd hear

And I know what you're thinking, it's too good to be true

But Honey pie I really am sincere

Well I never was much for being a romantic kind of guy

But starting now I'm really gonna try


I love you like a banker loves money, like a bee loves honey, like a hog loves slop

I love you and I'll never stop

I need you like a fish needs water, like clay needs a potter, like a farmer needs crop

I need you and I'll never stop


I love you like a horse loves oats,   I love you like a mayor loves votes

I love you like a dog loves a bone,   I love you like a teenage girl loves the telephone

I need you like a teacher needs a class,  I need you like a car needs gas

I love you like a woman loves to shop,   I love you and I'll never stop


Well I never was much for saying what I had to say

But starting now I'm changing my ways


I love you like a banker loves money, like a bee loves honey, like a hog loves slop

I love you and I'll never stop

I need you like a fish needs water, like clay needs a potter, like a farmer needs crop

I need you and I'll never stop



Loving You Up

(Randall Lee Anderson)


All my life I’m holding out for true love

Holding out for someone I adore

Now that I’ve found you I’m never gonna let you go

You are the one I’ve waited for, oh Baby


Gonna show you honey, one day at a time

Prove to you that you’re the only one

It might take a while; tell you what I’ll do

I’m gonna spend the rest of my life, lovin’ you up

Lovin’ you up


Sometimes I think I must be dreaming

Can’t believe my heart could be this true

No one could ever mean so much to me

Girl I swear my whole world is you, oh Baby


Gonna show you honey, one day at a time

Prove to you that you’re the only one

It might take a while; tell you what I’ll do

I’m gonna spend the rest of my life, lovin’ you up

Lovin’ you up


Now that I’ve found you I’m never gonna let you go

You are the one I’ve waited for, oh Baby


Gonna show you honey, one day at a time

Prove to you that you’re the only one

It might take a while; tell you what I’ll do

I’m gonna spend the rest of my life, lovin’ you up

Lovin’ you up



Another You  

(Matt Dorman)


I can see the plans I made just crumble to the ground again

and nothing I can do will make it right


Differences sometimes break what took a lot of years to make

Those memories won’t go away if you walk out that door today


You said I do and I did too, now what’s become of me and you

If we can’t love why do we have to fight


Well, if you don’t want it anymore then this is it but be assured

I can make it through the pain of never holding you again


My rivers run so deep to where my heart gets broken

But somehow I always make it through

I’ll just take these dreams on down the road a long way

Where I hope I never find another you


I’ve been down this road before, I gave it all and then some more

And this time I’ve done more than I can do


My life is like an ancient tale told time again to no avail

Pieces of my history keep coming back and haunting me



Tell Me I'm Wrong

(Randall Lee Anderson)


Your love made a change in me when you came along

I'm twice the man I used to be,   but now something's gone wrong

I try to tell myself that everything's all right

It's just a phase we're going through

But I can't convince myself,   I want to hear it from you


Tell me I'm wrong,   and that you're not leaving

Tell me I'm crazy,   you're still in love with me

I don't need to be right,   and I don't want to fight

It just feels like your love is gone

So just hold me tight,   and tell me I'm wrong


Your love is the miracle I never thought I would find

And when you're away from me,   I'm out of my mind

And it's killing me to think it might be over

I'd have to go on without you somehow

But I don't have to have my way,   and I'm listening now


Tell me I'm wrong,   and that you're not leaving

Tell me I'm crazy,   you're still in love with me

I don't need to be right,   and I don't want to fight

It just feels like your love is gone

So just hold me tight,   and tell me I'm wrong


So just hold me tight,   and tell me I'm wrong



One Morning Down

(Randall Lee Anderson)


Well that’s one morning down since my Baby’s gone

One morning down since my baby’s gone

I thought she’d never leave me, I was wrong


It’s the hardest thing I’ve done, watching her go

The hardest thing I’ve ever done is watching her go

I’ve got one morning down Lord knows how many more to go


Somehow I found the strength to get up and get out of bed

When tomorrow comes I’ll just have to do it again

One morning down since my baby’s gone

I swore she’d never leave me, I was wrong


It’s the hardest thing I’ve done, watching her go

The hardest thing I’ve ever done is watching her go

I’ve got one morning down Lord knows how many more to go


Somehow I found the strength to get up and get out of bed

When tomorrow comes I’ll just have to do it again

One morning down since my baby’s gone

I swore she’d never leave me, I was wrong


I swore she’d never leave me, I was wrong



Goodbye Cruel World

(Matt Dorman)


I was standing on the edge of desperation

Staring at the broken hearts below

I was trying to assess the situation

When she appeared from somewhere I don’t know


She took me by the hand and said “Don’t do it”

There ain’t nothing worth what you are thinking of

It ain’t never too late to get some schoolin’ in

And honey I can show you how to love


Goodbye cruel world Hello cloud nine

No more standing in love’s unemployment line

Ever since the first time my sweet angel took me to heaven above

Goodbye cruel world hello true love


Don’t get me wrong now my life wasn’t’ over

I can stand my ground when push comes to shove

I wasn’t’ thinking ‘bout giving up on getting older

I was thinking about giving up on love


Goodbye cruel world Hello cloud nine

No more standing in love’s unemployment line

Ever since the first time my sweet angel took me to heaven above

Goodbye cruel world hello true love



If I Could Turn Back Time

(Randall Lee Anderson/Betty K. Miller)


The boy said dad, I haven’t done things right

But I’m sure glad to see you here tonight

I know it’s killing you to visit me behind these prison walls

If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t be here at all


The girl said dad, it’s me, can I come home

I’m somewhere in a phone booth, cold and all alone

I don’t know why I ran away, but I’m glad you took my call

If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t be here at all


Time is like water rushing under a bridge

There’s no turning it back, but that’s ok

‘Cause the love that a father has for his child

Is strong enough to wash the past away


I said oh Lord, I haven’t done things right

And I’m on my knees calling to you tonight

I didn’t know how much I needed you until I took a fall

If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t be here at all



Wasn't It You

(Randall Lee Anderson)


Girl I'd have never believed the way and how easily you just threw our love away

There must have been a side of you that I had never seen

Now I see it all real clear you were entirely someone else when you weren't here

You kept me believing in love by saying things you didn't mean

Why did you have to lead me on


Wasn't it you who talked about forever

Wasn't it you who promised me the moon

When I gave my heart to someone and swore my love was true

Oh Baby, wasn't it you


How could I have been so blind not to see there were two of you inside one mind

One of you was gentle and loving and the other was wild and free

You always played the part so well and when we made love it was impossible to tell

That I was only holding part of you 'cause you gave your love so willingly

But who was I loving all along


Wasn't it you who talked about forever

Wasn't it you who promised me the moon

When I gave my heart to someone and swore my love was true

Oh Baby, wasn't it you


Is there a part of you,   a part of you that's still in love with me

Could I change your mind,   or am I just dreaming


When I gave my heart to someone and swore my love was true

Oh Baby, wasn't it you

Oh Baby, wasn't it you



The Great Divide

(Randall Lee Anderson/Betty K. Miller)


Five miles out of Memphis, She wants to turn the car around

She’s thinking about going back to old familiar ground

But her mind keeps replaying scenes from their last fight

This time he was crying too, She speeds in into the night


There she was at the great divide

Holding on to the wheel and what’s left of her pride

Though tears were falling on either side

She still crossed over the great divide


Five miles from Grand Junction she calls to tell him she’s OK

Though he said he missed her he didn’t have much else to say

As she drove on through the Rockies she couldn’t stop thinking of him

Oh they had some good times too, and she was crying once again


There she was at the great divide

Holding on to the wheel and what’s left of her pride

Though tears were falling on either side

She still crossed over the great divide


Though tears will fall on either side

She still crossed over the great divide



Another Man’s Castle  

(Matt Dorman/Randall Lee Anderson)


Sittin’ on the front porch, grandpa and me

I was seventeen, he was seventy three

We were having a talk about love and life

When he gave me some fatherly advice, he said


Love will find you, no need to go and look

And all of life’s secrets are in the good book

Like a speeding locomotive time will pass you buy

So make every moment count as you’re going through life

Don’t love money, it ain’t worth the hassle

And never play house in another man’s castle


Ten years later I was talking to a friend

He was having an affair with a married woman

I could hear my grandpa talking as I looked him in the eye

And I gave him some brotherly advice, I said


Love will find you, no need to go and look

And all of life’s secrets are in the good book

Like a speeding locomotive time will pass you buy

So make every moment count as you’re going through life

Don’t love money, it ain’t worth the hassle

And never play house in another man’s castle


Oh, love’s a precious thing, and if you treat it with respect

You won’t want for anything



Lorraine

(Randall Lee Anderson)


Excuse me for staring but you remind me of someone

I fell in love with a long time ago

She had your eyes and that same pretty smile

And I loved her more than she’ll ever know

Well I know I’m a stranger and I probably should go

But there’s something I’m dying to know


Could you put my heart back together

Could you take away some of my pain

Could you hold me tonight and just for a while

Help me forget about Lorraine


I’m sorry for laying my troubles on you

It’s goanna take some time before I’m all right

But if you’re willing to try I’m sure you could help me

To get over her starting tonight

I’m not asking for love or intimacy

I just need some good company


Could you put my heart back together

Could you take away some of my pain

Could you hold me tonight and just for a while

Help me forget about Lorraine

Never Stop

Lovin’ You Up

Another You

Tell Me I’m Wrong

One Morning Down

Goodbye Cruel World

If I Could Turn Back Time

Wasn’t It You

The Great Divide

Another Man’s Castle
