where you've been? Lyrics by Kathy Mattea


Kathy Mattea Lyrics

where you've been? Lyrics
Clair had all but givin up when
when she and edwin fell in love
she his touched his face and shook her head
indisbelieve and sighed and said
in many dreams i've held you near
no at last your really here

Where you've been i've looked for you forever and a day
Where you've been i'm just not my-self when you're away

he asked her for her for life
and she became a sales mens wife
he was home each night by eight
but one stormy evening he was late
her frightened tears fell to the floor
until his key turned in the door

Where you've been i've looked for you forever and a day
Where you've been i'm just not my-self when you're away

they never spend a night apart for sixty years she heard him snore
now there in the hospitle on seperate beds on different floors
clair soon lost her memory, forgot the names of family
she never spoke a word again, then one day they whelled him in
he held her hand and stroked her hair, in a fragile voice she said

Where you've been i've looked for you forever and a day
Where you've been i'm just not my-self when you're away
no, i'm just not my-self when you're away
