The One You Love (Album Version)

The One You Love (Album Version)

Terri Clark

He says itâ??s none of my damn business
How much he drinks
And he doesnâ??t have a problem
No matter what the whole town thinks
At his babyâ??s birthday party
There was whiskey on his breath
Everybody wants to save him
But heâ??s not ready yet

[Chorus]
You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope thatâ??s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, itâ??s the deepest wound there is
When you canâ??t help the one you love

Her reads the bible
Her father sits and snores
Theyâ??re with her every minute
Cause they may not have many more
She was dancing in New Orleans
Only seven weeks ago
Life may go on with out her
But not the life we know

[Chorus]

When someoneâ??s slipping away
Right before your eyes
How useless we are
Is a painful surprise

[Chorus]

When you canâ??t help the one you love
