Alaina, Lauren - Three Lyrics




Three weeks
before I could even meet
my brother's son.
Didn't see him turn one or two.

Three months
I haven't made Sunday service once.
I'm out on the road
praying alone
every night for a sign
that I'm doing this right.
And I'm right where I'm supposed to be

Mama said, "You'll be a star."
And daddy said, "You're gonna go far.
All you gotta do is sing your heart out."
A lot of miles, a lot of tears
have given me some of my best years.
There's so much I had to miss out on
six years of missing home
for three minutes on the radio.

Three years
of wishing that he was here
holding my hand.
No, I didn't plan
for those three words
to be the ones that hurt.
They don't sound the same
from so far away.

Mama said, "You'll be a star."
And daddy said, "You're gonna go far.
All you gotta do is sing your heart out."
A lot of miles, a lot of tears
have given me some of my best years.
There's so much I had to miss out on
six years of missing home
for three minutes on the radio.

I'll do it for the three girls at my show
who saved up for the third row.
And the three times that I heard
just this week that my words
were sung by a three-year-old:
hairbrush for a microphone.
Little girl with a dream,
And that girl was me, yeah

My mama said, "You'll be a star."
And daddy said, "You're gonna go far.
All you gotta do is sing your heart out."
A lot of miles, a lot of tears
have given me my best years.
There's so much I had to miss out on
six years of missing home.
But I'd spend fifty more gone
for three minutes on the radio.

    Three ways before I could even need
    My brother's son, didn't see him turn one or two
    Three months I haven't made Sunday service once
    I'm out on the road praying alone
    Every night for a sign that I'm doing this right
    And I'm right where I'm supposed to be

    Mama said, "you'll be a star"

    Three years of wishing that he was here holding my hand
    No I didn't plan for those three words
    To be the ones that hurt
    They don't sound the same from so far away

    Oh, my mama said, "you'll be a star"
    And daddy said, "you're gonna go far, all you gotta do is sing your heart out"
    A lot of miles, a lot of tears
    You've given me some of my best years
    There's so much I had to miss out on

    Oh my word Lauren. You are so talented. Your songs have such meaningful lyrics. This is beautiful. Keep up the great work. God Bless :)

  48. Janet Phelps

    What a great song that all Artist can relate too, all fans can feel the sacrifice but mostly, you showed the deep love for your family! It’s not worth it if I were being honest. Surely there’s another way!!! Adele and Taylor seem to occasionally show up! Making fans anticipate the return! Perhaps, you can do that one day!! Keep that beautiful spirit, Lauren. Put CHRIST first, family, job!

    This is such a heartfelt and truthful song, I can't listen/sing along without getting tears and goosebumps. Lauren your amazing and so very appreciated keep doing you girl, your voice is incredible and your shinning.

    sylvia

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover haha 😂 that's so funny, pmsl it's that funny! I don't even like pizza, you stupid imbercele let alone eat 15 pizzas. who in the actual fuck eats 15 pizzas? I don't eat it, I can't digest it you stupid idiot, yet another premustion that you made that's wrong. You do productive stuff everyday? Well I can tell you now and to repeat your words back to you being a bitch and troll that spreads hatred on the Internet isn't productive. So obviously you need to go and find something else to be productive with. I feel ashamed to even say the same screen name as you on insta, you ugly hate filled troll. I work my ass off making a difference to those around me also and no I'm not going to make a difference in your familys life which is what you said, with a woman like you for there mother they have no hope anyway.

    It's funny how your going around calling everyone trolls who pulls you up about your comment yet deny you are one. Not everyone can be and are a troll, you need to turn that view inward on yourself. Your too busy to be a bitch on the Internet? Funny, because that's exactly what you are being and how you get your kicks in life, sorry your life is so boring and also sorry to hear that you can't live with yourself because of all the hatred your filled with. My heart is good, true and proper. Yours is ugly, black and full of hate. Go away troll I'm bored with your petty drama now

    sylvia

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover your the furtherest thing from a kind hearted person I've ever seen and believe me I've come across some cold ass cunts in life. If you wasnt you wouldn't be coming out with half the shit your typing on here and especially telling people to go die and calling everyone trolls, you aren't kind hearted at all and if you think that's what kind heartedness is you need to go back to school and learn as you clearly you didn't learn anything

    sylvia

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover and, not amd another spelling mistake I would think a 2/3 year old could spell 😂
