Collin Raye - Anyone Else Lyrics

Baby I bought wine and roses on my way home
Yeah I know we can't afford it but life doesn't last too long
This world has gone half-crazy
And knocked us both to our knees
I'm fumbling for the words to try to tell ya
I love you for hangin' onto me

When anyone else would've been long gone
Packed it up and headed back home
And not a soul would blame you after what I put you through
Yeah anyone else would've gone insane
Called the game on a count of rain
Anyone else, anyone else
Anyone but you

Mayday baby, all the rivets popped loose, it's a total tailspin
Too much grindstone, too little time with you
Girl, you know it's wearing thin
Baby let's trade in these teardrops
For warm kisses on skin
You got a drawer full of IOU's
And it's high time you called those things in

When anyone else would've been long gone
Packed it up and headed back home
And not a soul would blame you after what I put you through
Yeah anyone else would've gone insane
Called the game on a count of rain
Anyone else, anyone else
Anyone but you

You've passed up so many chances
To walk right out that door
Instead of dodging a champagne cork
And watchin' the wet clothes fall to the floor

When anyone else would've been long gone
Packed it up and headed back home
And you can hide behind a Cheshire cat grin but you know it's true
Yeah anyone else would've gone insane
Called the game on a count of rain
Anyone else, anyone else
Anyone but you

Anyone else
Girl, anyone but you

    This song is my boyfriend and me. So many times, so many chances, he could have walked away from me, and I wouldn't have blamed him. But he has still stuck around for nine months. I honestly didn't know if we would last this long.

  48. Jeremy Prunty

    Collin of the best singers to ever walk into a recording studio, every time I hear one of his songs on the radio it goes way of, i'm 19 years old now, but I remember listening to Collin Raye back when I was 3, 4, 5 years old, etc. I loved his music then and to this day I still love when a Collin song is playing, this song, is one of my favorite songs from him, please bring back 90's country, I miss artists like Collin Raye, Garth Brooks, John Michael Montgomery, Clint Black, etc.

  49. stan rich

    JESUS CHRIST is the Light of the world. Whoever follows Him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Open your heart to Jesus Christ !

  51. Céline .S. Sauvé

    Odd. Why didn't they show the whole of "Chekov's banner" in there. You only catch glimpses of the weird blue thing with the white writing...

  52. Mike Holder

    Country music today should be named Country POP. It is nothing like the good ole music from the 1980s and 1990s. Sure miss them good ole days.....

  53. Jimmy A.S

    its a beautiful song, i miss the old days the song of garth brooks, alan jackson, tim mc graw, john michael montgomery, dixie chicks. those are country superstars during 90s. country song today is not as good as before.- country lover from philippines.
