lyrics

CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE

Holly Slaughter / James House

Daddy always suffered in a bitter silence
I started to notice when I was ten years old
Outside the house a beloved leader
But he hit the bottle when he came home
Did his best to put up facade
But the smoke came leaking out the windows
You can’t hold back who you are
Sooner or later everybody knows

Some people live
Some people cry
Some people are just waiting waiting to die
Some people give a little too much
Some people can’t help, can’t help but love

Mama held everything together
She was my shelter from the storm
Always there to pick up the pieces
When my world got shattered and torn
One day she said she had to leave
You can either stay or come with me
I didn’t go and I didn’t stay
I packed up and went my own way

Some people live
Some people cry
Some people are just waiting waiting to die
Some people give a little too much
Some people can’t help, can’t help but love

Spend our lives shedding baggage
Weighs us down don’t let us fly
If you find love’s forgiveness
You will know the reason why

Some people live
Some people cry
Some people are just waiting, waiting to die
Some people give a little too much
Some people can’t help can’t help but love
