As long as we're sharing

I know Jim's a fan of country music, and had even name dropped Hank Williams as one of his favourites. Hank was less a song writer and more of a poet. With that in mind I'd thought I'd rip him off. Writing with the simple musical accompaniment Hank's song "Cold Cold Heart" in mind I came up with this. Work in progress, but any thoughts would be welcome. Below is a link To Hank's Cold Cold Heart as a point of reference.


The Start

Before I sleep and as I wake
I only think of you
The answer to my years of prayer
And search for something new
The ground before your feet is blessed
Your smile lights up my heart
But you tell me that you don't love me
And have done from the start

He'll never know how blessed he is
To have you on his arm
It seems to me that over night
You've fallen for his charm
All the while I long for you
I make loneliness an art
Your love is meant for someone else
And has been from the start

You've seen me at my very worst
And still called me your friend
But one thing that you can't do for me
Is make this longing end
You've taught me countless ways to fail
In ways to win your heart
But each new failure driver me on
Then I plan back from the start

I'd do anything to kiss your lips and hold your pretty hand
But you're always reminding me of lines drawn in the sand
Everyday I learn anew, that we're leagues apart
But I'll keep waiting for your love
And happiness to start
