Allan, Gary - I'll Take Today Lyrics

Yeah, she's the one
The one I told you all about
Yeah, it was serious, but it was long ago
She just might walk over here
And give me a kiss for old times
But don't you worry dear
Old times, next to you, can never come close

I'll take today over yesterday, anyday
I'll take lyin' in your arms tonight
Over and above any love, I've known
Memories may find me, but they'll always be behind me
I'll take today over yesterday, anyday

I'd be lyin' if I tried to tell you now
That I never loved her
And she doesn't ever cross my mind
But that was yesterday, and baby, I don't wanna go back
Here is where I'm gonna stay
With you in each tomorrow of my life

I'll take today over yesterday, anyday
I'll take lyin' in your arms tonight
Over and above any love, I've known
Memories may find me, but they'll always be behind me
I'll take today over yesterday, anyday

Memories may find me, but they'll always be behind me
I'll take today over yesterday, anyday

  26. born free

    For everyone on a Gary Allan binge wallowing in your miser and self pity over that one, some people claim that it gets easier; that broken hearts mend and forgetting her is possible. I think they are probably full shit.

    IT Ain't the Whishey, I know, I love this lonely man he sounds a whole lot about this life I am living and can't seem to forgive or get past. In 1988, I married a man that I thought and did at the time, would be my strength and here is am almost 29 years later hating everything I thought I STOOD FOR, I FUCKED UP! IMMENSELY, but now this man off mine is sick with COPD and still smokes drugs and cigarettes, I myself was diagnosed in 2010 with liver Chirohisis and here I sit every lonely hour of my life in my bedroom with my door shut,,,,,, and it wasn't and it ain't the frigging Whiskey
