Anderson, Keith - Every Time I Hear Your Name Lyrics

Fin'lly got over that song of ours; stopped chasin' little red sports cars,
To check the license plates an' I quit drivin' by your place.
Back makin' the rounds at our old haunts... Honky Tonks, restaurants.
An' seein' some of our old friends... it feels good to dance again.
An' I can fin'lly smell your perfume an' not look around the room for you.
An' I can walk right by your picture in a frame an' not feel a thing.

But when I hear your name,
I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky.
An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes.
An' nothin's changed, an' we're still same.
An' I get lost in the innocence of a first kiss,
An' I'm hangin' on to every word rollin' off of your lips...
An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place,
Every time I hear your name.

Got someone special in my life... everyone thinks she'd make a great wife.
Dad says he thinks she's the one... reminds him of Mom when she was young,
But it's way too soon to be talkin 'bout rings; don't wanna rush into anything.
She's getting over someone too, kinda like me an' you.
An' she talks about him every once in a while, an' I just nod my head an' smile,
'Cause I know exactly what she's goin' through... yeah, I've been there too.

An' when the conversation turns to you,
I get caught in a "you were the only one for me",
Kinda thought, an' your face is all that I see.
I know I can't go back when I still go back.
An' there we are, parked down by the riverside,
An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time,
An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place,
Every time I hear your name.

So I'm thinkin' 'bout the words I left unsaid.
(Every time I hear your name.)
Stop tryin' the change the things I can't change.
(Every time I hear your name.)
In my heart I know you're gone, but in my head,

I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky.
An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes.
That's all it takes, an' I'm in that place.
An' there we are, parked down by the riverside,
An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time.
An' I can't explain, but I'm in that place,
Every time I hear your name.
Every time I hear your name.
(Every time I hear your name.)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
(Every time I hear your name.)
Ah ah.
Every time I hear your name.

  5. Uchiha Warrior

  6. Julie Raye

    That's all it takes... Honestly takes a hell of a lot less then that... Yet there are those that come along and give a girl a little hope and inspiration that maybe just maybe life is not perfect. It has its moments that break your heart, that have the strength to build you back up, then show the dedication of every human SOUL one has been fortunate enough to get to know to help one SOLDIER ON....

  60. Jesse M

    I'm slowly getting over you Vic.. but a part of me is still holding on to hope. Hope that you'll give me and our kids a second try at making our family whole again. I still love you, to the moon and back baby. Say when. Cause I could really use you beautiful blue eyes right about now. They brought sunshine into my cloudy life and could again. But if there's a next time.. I'll give you my All. I love you Victoria Fawn.. but I'm losing hope that there will be another Us.. and could fully move on.. I don't want that.. I want my little family back.. just better than before. No pills.. More God.. More happiness.. We could make it work. Think bout it. You know where I am. You know you can come to me. Just make it soon..

  82. Babykins Feeney

    Can relate to this song so much. My ex hurt me so bad. We been broken up for 2 years now but when I hear his name or see our old friends I'm right back in the past when we were tog and happy. I'm with someone new now engaged to be married but I still go back to a time when I was with him whenever hes mentioned. Funny how things work.

  83. Dustin Hensley

    Leanne you'll never see this but 4 year later I still love you. No woman will ever get my heart that'll always be yours. We didnt end well and I push hard. When i was being difficult i was loving you the most . I know now that was wrong. but i do know i love you with all my heart .

  84. Bethany George
