Before You Go (Vintage)
Lyrics
BEFORE YOU GO
Before You Go
Before You Go
Intro:
The nurses are nice
I'll stay by your bed
And tell you 'bout us
Like the night I said...
Verse I:
It's past two AM
And you've got to leave
Guess, I've never worn
My heart on my sleeve
Though I've known you
Only a short time
I've got to speak
What's on my mind...

Chorus:
BEFORE YOU GO...
I want you to know how much I love you
BEFORE YOU GO...
I want to tell you I need you sooo much
Words I should say and not just today
To let you know what's in my heart
Please listen...BEFORE YOU GO

Verse II:
Years later, I teased you
'Bout you big ole' purse
You got made at me
Stormed out of the house
Got into your car
And turned the key
I ran to your car
And said, honey please...

Repeat Chorus

Verse III:
Now the doctor tells me
You are so very ill
You've got something
Medicine can't kill
I'll hold your hand
And brush your hair
Tell you how I feel
Even after you can't hear...

Repeat Chorus (twice, fade)
