For Your Ears Only
(T. LaFLesh copyright 2007)

I?d be sittin? alone with my new bride, It was only a matter of time
Pull out the guitar and sing a song, somethin? soft and low
She?d work in close and squeeze my arm, say Honey, you know you could go far
It?s such a pretty melody It always sounds so good to me,
She?d look up with those lovin?eyes, say you ought to let the world decide
I?d smile and say, r what you hear today, is for your ears only.

At eight years old my little girl, would sit with me in the summertime and say
Daddy please won?t you play that song, ?bout the Angels with the Honky-tonks

She?d make up words and sing along, we?d laugh until the setting sun.
She?d look up throught those innocent eyes say, you?re much more fun than those T.V. guys
I?d smile and say what you hear today, Is for your ears only

I don?t know why, I took, this road.
Lonely bars, and motel rooms
For ten long years, I?m drivin? on.
Still wondrin? when, I?ll get, back home

I arrive to find my little girl, is all grown up with her own child.
She and the wife and the tiny one, sittin? on the porch listenin? to me strum.
Surrounded by the ones I love, it ain?t hard to give it up.
Playin? all the songs I ever did, ?Bout how we loved and how we lived.

They still ask me every time, if I?ll be stayin? round a while.
The seven halves I?m split up in, there ain?t enough of me to go around.
But I promise what you hear today, is for your ears only.
