“I Forgot to Be Your Lover” by William Bell

Have I told you lately that I love you?
If I didn’t, darling, I’m sorry.
Did I reach out and hold you in my loving arms
Oh, when you needed me?

Now I realize that you need love, too,
And I’ll spend my life making love to you.
Oh, I forgot to be your lover,
And I’m sorry, baby.

Have I taken the time to share with you
All the burdens that love will bear?
And have I done the little simple things to show you
Just how much I care?

Oh, I’ve been workin’ for you doin’ all I can;
To work all the time didn’t make me a man.
Oh, I forgot to be your lover
And I’m sorry; I’ll make it up to you somehow.

“I Found You” by the Alabama Shakes

This isn’t sometimes—
yeah, it’s for always
if I’m gonna love you with all of my heart
and if there is no more time,
this always remains.
even as the world spins itself apart…

cuz i remember them days i waited so patiently
for God to bring someone who’s gonna be good to me
and then He blessed my soul

well, i traveled a long way
and it took a long time to find you…
but i finally found you…

i remember all them lonely days
i traveled out on my own
then you brought me everything
ya made my house a home
if it’s not the real deal then i don’t know it
cuz it sho does feel, and i think it sho does show

i remember all them days i waited so patiently
until God brought someone who’s gonna be good to me
and he blessed my soul…

But, I traveled a long way
And it took a long time…
to find you…but, i did find you…

and he blessed my soul….

“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy Moley, Me-oh-My, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend,
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie,
chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park,
through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls,
alleyways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die,
barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the streets we’re running free
like it’s only you and me
Geez, you’re somethin’ to see.

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

“Jade?”
“Alexander?”
“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do; you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you off to the hospital. Do you remember that?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you and I never told you ‘til just now.”
“Now I know.”

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is whenever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you
