Lyrics From Country Music That Made Us Feel Understood About Life and Love 

  • The vows go unbroken by Kenny Rogers-

    From the moment I met you,

    You made my life complete.

    This wave of pure devotion,

    Has swept me off my feet.

    And tonight when we kissed,

    You still took my breath away.

    It goes without saying,

    But I’ll say it anyway…

    The vows go un-broken – and you still know I do.

    Love, keep and honor – always true to you.

    Though I have been tempted,

    Oh I have never strayed.

    I’d die before I’d damage,

    This union we have made.”

    •          Second violin by Bagatalle-

     “I would have given you

    Anything that you wanted

    I would have taken you

    Anywhere you wanted to go

    I would have answered you

    Any question that you asked me

    I would have told you

    Anything you wanted to know

    We used to live

    Like there was gonna be no tomorrow

    As if a new day

    Wasn’t gonna begin

    But the light in your eyes

    Has gone and said good bye

    And I don’t wanna be

    Your second violin

    The little things you do

    I still keep them in my memory

    And little things you said

    I still keep them in my mind

    The times we had were good

    And we never had a problem

    Times that we’re leaving

    So very very far behind”

    •          The Truth- Jason Aldean 

    Tell ’em all I’m on vacation

    Say I went to visit friends

    That you ain’t heard or seen from me in quite a while

    When they ask you where I’ve been

    Tell ’em I’m out on the West Coast

    Where it don’t ever rain

    And that I’m probably doing fine

    Just don’t tell ’em I’ve gone crazy

    That I’m still strung out over you

    Tell ’em anythin’ you want to

    Just don’t tell ’em all the truth

    Yeah, don’t tell ’em all the truth

    Tell ’em all I’m out in Vegas

    Blowin’ every dollar I ever made

    Tell ’em that I must be into somethin’ bad for me

    ‘Cause I sure lost a lot of weight

    Tell ’em I’m out on the road

    With some old rock and roll band

    Living like a gypsy can

    The truth is that I’m askin’ you to lie

    And we both know that it ain’t right

    But if you ever loved me

    Please have some mercy on me”

    • Cologne by Dolly Parton –

    “You ask me not to wear cologne

    She’ll know you’ve been with me alone

    And you can’t take our secret home

    So you ask me not to wear cologne

    You can wipe the make up off

    The lipstick or a little gloss

    But fragrance lingers on and on

    So you ask me not to wear cologne

    You leave my bed and go to hers

    Leaving me alone and hurt

    I love you whether right or wrong

    And you ask me not to wear cologne

    I’m not out to hurt someone

    Not you, not her, not any one

    But I got heartaches of my own

    Why, I can’t even wear cologne

    Oh but I never meant for this to be

    It wasn’t in my heart to cheat

    Love has a nature all it’s own

    So I willingly gave up cologne

    And every time you come to me

    I realize I’m in too deep

    I know you love us both and I keep holding on

    You ask me not to wear cologne

    You say, “Don’t wear cologne”

    Oh now what am I ever gonna do

    Cause I am so in love with you

    I know you love us both

    But where do I belong

    You ask me not to wear cologne”


    • Evening star by Kenny Rogers-

    “If you never rode West of the Arizona border

    You can turn the other way boy but you never get far

    You be living a lie if you wanna see the wonders of the age

    You must follow the evening star.

    Evening star

    Shine a little Heaven

    On a stranger with no dream

    Where you are.

    You can see the loneliness I mean and if I gotta fight

    I can never play somebody else’s game

    I can follow the evening star

    Starlight, you never need somebody else’s name

    If you follow the evening star.

    Have you ever known a sunset when the sky’s on fire

    How you end another day boy you’ve been searching too far

    Like the desert I rode on any memory is lost in the restless wind

    I just lie beneath the evening star.”


    •  Mamma Mia by Abba-

    “I’ve been cheated by you since I don’t know when

    So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

    Look at me now, will I ever learn?

    I don’t know how but I suddenly lose control

    There’s a fire within my soul

    Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

    One more look and I forget everything, w-o-o-o-oh

    Mamma mia, here I go again

    My my, how can I resist you?

    Mamma mia, does it show again?

    My my, just how much I’ve missed you

    Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

    Blue since the day we parted

    Why, why did I ever let you go?

    Mamma mia, now I really know,

    My my, I could never let you go.”


    • Some Broken Hearts Never Mend by Don Williams –

    “Coffee black, cigarettes,

    start this day, like all the rest,

    First thing every morning that I do,

    Is start missing you

    Some broken hearts never mend,

    Some memories never end,

    Some tears will never dry,

    My love for you will never die

    Rendezvous in the night,

    A willing woman to hold me tight,

    But in the middle of love’s embrace,

    I see your face”


    • This world is not our own by Jim Reeves –

    “This world is not my home

    I’m just a-passing through

    My treasures are laid up

    Somewhere beyond the blue.

    The angels beckon me

    From heaven’s open door

    And I can’t feel at home

    In this world anymore.

    Oh Lord, you know

    I have no friend like you

    If heaven’s not my home

    Then Lord what will I do.”


    • Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler –

    “It must have been cold there in my shadow,

    to never have sunlight on your face.

    You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.

    You always walked a step behind.

    So I was the one with all the glory,

    while you were the one with all the strength.

    A beautiful face without a name for so long.

    A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

    Did you ever know that you’re my hero,

    and everything I would like to be?

    I can fly higher than an eagle,

    ’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

    It might have appeared to go unnoticed,

    but I’ve got it all here in my heart.

    I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.

    I would be nothing without you.”


    • when you say nothing at all by Ronan Keating 

    It’s amazing how you

    Can speak right to my heart.

    Without saying a word

    You can light up the dark.

    Try as I may, I could never explain

    What I hear when you don’t say a thing.

    The smile on your face

    Lets me know that you need me.

    There’s a truth in your eyes

    Saying you’ll never leave me.

    The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall.

    You say it best when you say nothing at all.

    All day long I can hear

    People talking out loud 

    But when you hold me near

    You drown out the crowd

    Try as they may, they can never define

    What’s been said between your heart and mine.

    ​NGAI AKURATHIME


    Judging from facial expressions we have invented an emoji

    Misarranged teeth, cracked lips and a smile drawn like a G

    Inside our vests and bras we are generating tons of happiness

    We are proud of you

    (Ngai akurathime)
    We can tell that those who make it are few

    This is great you just made it like the morning dew

    As an eagle you flew

    High above the limits

    (Ngai akurathime)
    I was to sing 

    But I couldn’t get the best song even in Bing

    In my mind a story has cling

    A story of a girl who flew faster than her wings

    (Ngai akurathime)
    It all started in pre-school

    She was never cool with school

    But she needed to learn the vowels and spell the word fool

    She thought the spelling was full but the teacher always corrected her to fool

    She was taught about words with different meanings like stool

    And for survival education was a basic tool

    (Ngai akurathime)
    Lower classes was next

    A running nose and hunting for birds’ nests

    Always thought the sun had a bedroom in the west

    Just because the teacher had said that the sun sets in the west

    But she still managed to be the best

    (Ngai akurathime)
    Class four and the upper classes

    Some teachers complained that she was making faces

    The boys too were giving her a chase

    Hips and breasts were developing and she was experiencing a race

    A race between adolescence and academics

    Academics made it in a faster pace

    (Ngai akurathime)
    In high school

    She thought of getting born again during the weekend challenges

    Slept during the preps, hated teachers and school too

    Received letters from boys from the neighboring schools

    Envied girls who had lost their virginity

    She still made it

    (Ngai akurathime)
    Joined Campus

    She thought everyone has to pass

    She never read for the CATS

    She had thoughts of cheating in the exams

    She missed a Supplementary by whiskers

    (Ngai akurathime)
    She broke bottles and also hearts

    Turned off her crush with a cup of coffee

    Got sex advances, drank to blackout

    But God is great she still made it

    (Ngai akurathime)
    (Ngai akurathime)

    Agikuyu sentence meaning

    God bless you

    And that girl is Daisy Riri

    PS. A poem from my poet lover on my graduation. It has so much truth in it. Thanks


    ​In her eyes 
    Her beautiful eyes 

    I see something so beautiful 

    In her eyes I see my reflection

    A reflection of my future

    Beauty in the way she fell in love with my demons  the same demons I thought she’d fret

    That’s why she got me

    She says she got me for life 

    I don’t know coz our love is illegal

    Illegal to the religion to the society 

    But who set the standards .

    I love her voice

    That voice that soothes my demons

    Just a lilt and they obey

    I love her feline grace

    Her ability to dance with my angels

    By Barry 

    I would Come For You

    ​…

    Just one more moment, that’s all that’s needed

    Like wounded soldiers in need of healing

    Time to be honest

    this time I’m pleading

    please don’t dwell on it

    cause I didn’t mean it.

    I can’t believe I said I’d lay our love on the ground

    but it doesn’t matter cause I made it up

    forgive me now.

    Everyday I spent away my soul’s inside out

    Gotta be someway that I can make it up to you now

    somehow.

    By now you know that

    I’d come for you

    no one but you.

    Yes I’d come for you

    but only if you told me to.

    And I’d fight for you

    I’d lie, it’s true

    give my life for you

    you know I’ll always come for you.

    I was blindfolded

    but now I’m seeing.

    My mind was closing

    now I’m believing.

    I finally know just what it means to let someone in

    just see the side of me that no one does or ever will.

    So if you ever lost and find yourself all alone

    I’d search forever just to bring you home here and now

    this I vow.

    By now you know that

    I’d come for you

    no one but you.

    Yes I’d come for you

    but only if you told me to.

    And I’d fight for you

    I’d lie, it’s true

    give my life for you

    you know I’ll always come for you

    you know I’ll always come for you.

    No matter what gets in my way

    as long as there’s still life in me

    no matter what, remember

    you know I’ll always come for you.

    Yes I’d come for you

    no one but you

    yes I’d come for you

    but only if you told me to.

    And I’d fight for you

    I’d lie, it’s true

    give my life for you

    you know I’ll always come for you.

    No matter what gets in my way

    as long as there’s still life in me

    no matter what, remember

    I could cross this world for you

    do anything you want me to

    no matter whadt, remember

    you know I’ll always come for you

    you know I’ll always come for you.
