Magical Moment 112, "How?"

Man, this blog is really gonna force me to put all my songs out there. Some are better quality than others. All are a work in progress. Here is one I started writing years ago, but only finished recently. Recording is a bit rough, but hope you enjoy. Click play at the bottom to hear recording.

“How”
Words and music by Elizabeth Grimes copyright 2009
Vs 1:
The first question asked when something goes wrong
Is, What have I done? Or, Why me God?
I can’t deny the thought’s crossed my head.
But what’s burning me up is another question instead.

Chorus:
How do you change overnight when you swore that you’d love me for the rest of my life?
And how do I make it through the night without you here to hold me and be by my side?
And how do I trust again when you’ve broken every promise and word you’ve ever said?
Just tell me how feelings that strong can be so convincing and then go all wrong?

Vs 2:
I would have bet my life that you’d still be here
When I’m old and I’m gray in fifty or more years.
You swore up and down you’re love was secure
Til I finally was at ease and you made me fee sure.
There’s just one thing you didn’t explain
And I’d like to know, if it’s not too much pain.

Chorus:
How do you change overnight when you swore that you’d love me for the rest of my life?
And how do I make it through the night without you here to hold me and be by my side?
And how do I trust again when you’ve broken every promise and word you’ve ever said?

Bridge:
I’m begging for answers so answer me please.
If I could just read your mind to put mine at ease.

Chorus:
How do you change overnight when you swore that you’d love me for the rest of my life?
And how do I make it through the night without you here to hold me and be by my side?
And how do I trust again when you’ve broken every promise and word you’ve ever said?
Just tell me how feelings that strong can be so convincing and then go all wrong?

Repeat and fade
