Donna Fargo - You Were Always There Lyrics




Can't remember my first mem'ry of you you were always there
And now I know I never knew you well
But I was just a kid and you were always there to pick me up every time I fell
And you always warmed a blanket to wrap around my feet
When you tucked me into bed to say my prayers
And I'll bet I never thanked you among all the other things
That I took for granted cause you were always there
Yes you were always there so we never took the time
For you to tell me your dreams and me to tell you mine
And we never took the time to talk of love and happiness
And life and death and heartache and pain and loneliness

Why I don't even know if you were happy or if you could have been
Or if you could have one wish what would it be
Or what would you do differently if you could live again
And were you glad that you gave life to me
And I'd give anything to tell you am I glad that you were born
But you'll never hear the words I've learned to say
Cause before I got to know you died of loneliness
And they tell me I grew up and moved away
Yes you were always there so we never took the time
For you to tell me your dreams and me to tell you mine
There were so many things that could have been but now we'll never share
Cause kids don't know much and you were always there
No kids don't know much and you were always there

    Lyrics:
    Can't remember my first mem'ry of you you were always there
    And now I know I never knew you well
    But I was just a kid and you were always there
    To pick me up everytime I fell.

    And you always warmed a blanket to wrap around my feet
    When you tucked me into bed to say my prayers
    And I'll bet I never thanked you among all the other things
    That I took for granted cause you were always there.

    Yes, you were always there so we never took the time
    For you to tell me your dreams and me to tell you mine
    And we never took the time to talk of love and happiness
    And life and death and heartache and pain and loneliness.

    Why I don't even know if you were happy or if you could have been
    Or if you could have one wish what would it be
    Or what would you do differently if you could live again
    And were you glad that you gave life to me.

    And I'd give anything to tell you am I glad that you were born
    But you'll never hear the words I've learned to say
    'Cause before I got to know you died of loneliness
    And they tell me I grew up and moved away.

    Yes, you were always there so we never took the time
    For you to tell me your dreams and me to tell you mine
    There were so many things that could have been but now we'll never share
    'Cause kids, don't know much and you were always there.

    No kids, don't know much and you were always there...

  10. Kevin Baumann

    Her music makes me happy, but sad at the same time. We will never again have singers like we had in the 70's and earlier. All the great country singers are dying one by one. :((

    Her music is so awesome. We just don't have country music like we did back in the 70's and earlier. I still have two of her albums that I listen too all the time

  25. suesongs

    I love this song, but it always brings a big "lump in my throat" when I listen to it. As a result I can hardly stand to listen, it affects me so much. That being said, I still think it is a great song and Donna Fargo delivers it in a powerful, believable way. Thanks for posting it.
