In Pictures

Original and similar lyrics
I've got her photograph On a stand by my bed Two on the mantel And thousands in my head I can't believe how fast she's growing It ain't suppose to be like this Every time I look at her I see how much I've missed (Chorus) I missed her first steps her first words I love you daddy Is something I seldom hear oh it hurts me so to watch my baby grow up in pictures I send the money down I do my best to do my part but it can't compare with what I pay with my heart There's still unanswered questions that weigh heavy on my mind will she ever understand the reasons why (Chorus) I missed her first steps her first words I love you daddy Is something I seldom hear oh it hurts me so to watch my baby grow up in pictures it takes all I have to keep the tears inside what I wouldn't give if I could turn back time (Chorus) I missed her first steps her first words I love you daddy Is something I seldom heard oh it hurts me so to watch my girl grow up in pictures

I Love You This Much

JIMMY WAYNE "Jimmy Wayne"
He can't remember The times that he thought Does my daddy love me? Probably not That didn't stop him From wishing that he did Didn't keep him from wanting Or worshipping him He guesses he saw him About once a year He could still feel the way he felt Standing in tears Stretching his arms out As far as they'd go Whispering dad I want you to know CHORUS: I love you this much And I'm waiting on you To make up your mind Do you love me too? How ever long it takes I'm never giving up no matter what I love you this much He grew to hate him for what he had done 'Cause what kind of father Could do that to his son? He said 'damn you daddy' The day that he died The man didn't blink But the little boy cried CHORUS Half way through the service While the choir sang a hymn He looked up at the preacher And he sat and stared at him He said 'Forgive me father' When he realized That he hadn't been unloved Or alone all his life His arms were stretched out As far as they go Nailed to the cross For the whole world to know CHORUS

(d. fritz, o. thornton) I'm staring through glass Stained by insecurities and hurt I'm wondering, and I've got lots of questions But no answers why Daddy is the pastor of this church Seems to be his only out Besides basketball on the TV Basketball on the TV -CHORUS- My name is Aaron, does anybody care? I want to fly to the moon and drive a race car would like to be a star My name is Aaron, please tell me if I'm wrong Please tell me if I'm wrong I want to dream I want to dream I want to dream 'Cause dreams are real to me As nothing is reality It's like the pictures that I draw Pictures that I draw of dinosaurs They remind me of the man Who prays for the needy in our church In other words I'm not a good artist (repeat C HORUS) Does Jesus love me, Mommy Does Jesus love me, Daddy Does Jesus love me, anybody Does Jesus love -- does anyone love me? (repeat CHORUS)

No Way Out

JULIE ROBERTS "Julie Roberts"
Momma is cryin' the kitchen Even the dog can feel the chill She lays her head down on the table Next to a stack of unpaid bills Oh, Daddy puts his arms around her He says 'Girl, you're stockings starting to run.' I know it ain't never been easy, But ain't it always been fun, fun, fun. ~*Chorus*~ We fell in love And there's no way out We fell in love and there's no way out Sometimes you just gotta laugh about it, We fell in love And there's no way out Daddy's cussin in the backyard He's got the engine hangin' from a tree He's kickin the tires on the T-Bird And says 'T, you ain't gonna get the best of me' Oh, Momma comes dancin out the backdoor Snappin a dish towel in her hand She said 'Don't be waistin all the good energy, Don't you know how I love a sweaty man.' Oh Man, Oh man, oh man (Repeat Chorus) Fell in love and there's no way out Fell in love and there's no way out Fell in love and there's no way out (Repeat Chorus 2x)

My Son Calls Another Man Daddy

HANK WILLIAMS
Tonight my head is bowed in sorrow I can't keep the tears from my eyes My son calls another man daddy The right to his love I've been denied. CHORUS My son calls another man daddy He'll ne'er know my name nor my face God only knows how it hurts me For another to be in my place. Each night I laid there in prison I pictured a future so bright For he was the one ray of sunshine That shone through the darkest of nights. CHORUS My son calls another man daddy He'll ne'er know my name nor my face God only knows how it hurts me For another to be in my place. Today his mother shares a new love She just couldn't stand my disgrace My son calls another man daddy And longs for the love he can't replace. CHORUS My son calls another man daddy He'll ne'er know my name nor my face God only knows how it hurts me For another to be in my place. CHORUS My son calls another man daddy He'll ne'er know my name nor my face God only knows how it hurts me For another to be in my place.

Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)

ALAN JACKSON "Drive"
Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day, Out in the yard with your wife and children Or workin on some stage in LA Did you stand there in shock At the sight of that black smoke risin' against that blue sky Did you shout out in anger and fear for your neighbor Or did you just sit down and cry Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones Pray for the ones who don't know Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble And sob for the ones left below Did you burst out in pride for the red white and blue And the heros who died just doin what they do Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer And look at yourself and what really matters *Chorus* I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a real political man I watch CNN but im not sure i can tell you The difference in Iraq and Iran I know Jesus and i talk to god And i remember this from when i was young Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us And the greatest is love Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day Teachin' a class full of innocent children Driving down some cold interstate Did you feel guilty cause you were a survivor In a crowded room did you feel alone Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her Did you dust off that bible at home Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened Close your eyes and not go to sleep Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages Speak to some stranger on the street Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow Go out an buy you a gun Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin' And turn on 'I Love Lucy' re-runs Did you go to church and hold hands with some stangers Stand in line and give your own blood Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family Thank god you had somebody to love *Chorus* *Chorus* And the greatest is love And the greatest is love Where were you when the world stoped turning, that September day
