Watson, Gene - Desperation Lyrics




On this lonely bed I'm lying deep inside my mind just crying
Far away to break this hold she has on me
I wish that she would call but the phone upon the wall
Seems to turn the time into eternity

She keeps walking through my brain lord and I can't stand the strain
That face in light without her brings to mind
Hurtin' heavy hanging on realizin' that she's gone
That is only desperation that I find

Desperation has a hold upon my body and my soul
Loving her was all I had and now I lost control
Help me make it to tomorrow lord send me down your soothing word
And calm this desperation in my soul

Lord the world is filled with others who were broken hearted lovers
And I know they must have faced the night like this
Empty heart and all alone hurtin' clear down to the bone
Reeving life into a sweet remembered kiss

Life is just an endless motion yet I can't dispell the notion
That without her loving I can't make it through
Now dreaming daydreams of the past knowing I have seen the last
Of her love and there's nothing I can do

Desperation has a hold upon my body and my soul
Help me calm this desperation in my soul

    On this lonely bed I'm lying deep inside my mind just crying
    Far away to break this hold she has on me
    I wish that she would call but the phone upon the wall
    Seems to turn the time into eternity

    She keeps walking through my brain, lord
    and I can't stand the strain
    That face in light without her brings to mind
    Hurtin' heavy hanging on realizin' that she's gone
    It is only desperation that I find

    Desperation has a hold upon my body and my soul
    Loving her was all I had and now I lost control
    Help me make it to tomorrow, lord

    This is the first time I've heard this song, anywhere. We used to could hear this type of good country on the radio, but I guess those times are gone forever. I'm glad we still have You tube, and the people that take the time to find the good music, and then post it. Thanks a lot

    very special song to me, after we lost my mom this is the only song that can tear my dad up, he loves it so much and thinks of her. contacted Gene's fan club about where to locate this song on cd for my dads b-day and told them the story about my parents, they told me they'd get back to me. little do i know a couple days later Gene calls me himself and said he was very touched by my story and sent me a free cd and autographed pic made out to my dad in my moms memory. :)
