Let Love Take It From Here
@2009 Julianne Ankley

mom looked up to see her baby girl tears
She said mom I think it's over
Do you mind if I stay here, all we do is fight
We can't see eye to eye, momma said girl
there's more to this than just one try

whenever I fell down, whenever I had my doubts
I'd take a step back and try to see what the fuss is all about
You're too close dear, to see he's still right there
Runnin' won't fix your problems, I swear.
let love take it from here.

He set another up before he put the first one down
bartender said what's up boy,
don't you think you should slow down
he said it might be over,
bartender smiled and said son a marriage, it ain't easy
You need to clear your head

whenever I fell down, whenever I had my doubts
I'd take a step and try to see what the mess is all about
You're too close friend to see this ain't the end
Son, go back home she'll be waiting for you I swear
let love take it from here.

He pulled into the driveway she came runnin' out him
he said I'm sorry for my part of the way things've been
she said you can't take all the blame, I was there too
but I need to know, what we're gonna do?
it's what I want, what about you?

then he said baby I fell down, and you had your doubts
let's take a step back and see if we can't work this whole thing out
I'm still in love with you and if you're willing to
Give it one more chance I'll make it up to you, I swear
She said I need to know just how much you care
To let love take it from here
