Andrea Pearson’s Song Lyrics

GIBSON
I met you there in that shop in Kentucky
In that little Elizabeth-town
You’ve been there for a while just hanging around waiting for someone to try you out

You were tucked away, way back in that corner
A little rough around the edges just like me
I fell in love the first time I ever saw you
I said your name right out loud .. My Gibson

(Chorus)
We’ve been to Tucson Arizona
Nashville Tennessee
You’ve listened to all of my stories
And I’ve poured my heart out on your strings
I let you be you and you let me be me

Well I’ve stood out there in the spotlight
With only you holding my hand
You’ve seen me at my best and you’ve held me through my worst
And those when I couldn’t find the words

(Chorus)
We’ve been to Tucson Arizona
Nashville Tennessee
You’ve listened to all of my stories
And I’ve poured my heart out on your strings
I let you be you and you let me..

Know that it’s not always ..
The shiniest of things
That make the most beautiful melodies ring
Give me the broken and the bruised
The banged up and the used
And I’ll take it .. And I’ll sing ..

From Tucson Arizona
To Nashville Tennessee
You listen to all of my stories
I’ve poured my heart out on your strings
From a little pawn shop to bright lights and dreams..
Oh you’ve been right there through everything
And I let you be you.. And you let me be me

GROW OLD WITH YOU
If you live to be 100, I want to live to be 100
Minus one day.. Minus one day

‘Cause I never want to know Being here alone
My heart could never take this life without you babe

(Chorus)
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be lying in your arms
Tomorrow morning when I wake
Until God calls me home
I wanna grow old with you
Spend forever by your side
See each other through
I wanna grow old with you

Now when your hairs turning gray
I’ll still see you the way that you’ve always been , so beautiful

And when your hands are weak
And it’s hard for you to see
I’ll be there through it all , I won’t let you fall

(Chorus)
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be lying in your arms
Tomorrow morning when I wake
Until God calls me home
I wanna grow old with you
Spend forever by your side
See each other through
I wanna grow old with you

SHOULDA MISSED YOU BY NOW

It’s been two weeks now and it’s the strangest thing..
I don’t sit here waiting for the phone to ring

Said that time apart would only make us stronger
But I don’t know anymore and I can’t quite figure it out..
I should have missed you by now

It shouldn’t be this easy to fall asleep at night
And mornings should be harder without you by my side
I hate to admit it but I’m doing okay
You think with all the silence.. all this empty space .. This big old house ..
I should have missed you by now

(Chorus)
Maybe that means I finally know
I’m at the point where I can let go
You can fool your mind , you can play the part
But you can’t fool your heart
I should have missed you by now

I feel like the bad guy for standing here so sure
Like I should fall to pieces , hurt a little more

I don’t know where my tears went
Guess I’m all cried out
I think it’s finally over , my heart keeps telling me how ..
I should have missed you by now

(Chorus)
Maybe that means I finally know
I’m at the point where I can let go
You can fool your mind , you can play the part
But you can’t fool your heart
I should have missed you by now

It’s been two weeks now and it’s the strangest thing …
I don’t sit here waiting for the phone to ring

THE KEEPER OF THE STARS
My daddy’s an action figure
My daddy’s superman
Mama says he can fly just like a like an eagle
And today we’ll watch him land

I’m holding this little flag
The one where I learned to count stars
Mama said there’s one for every state
And that’s why daddy works so hard

He’s coming in on a big shiny airplane
And I finally get to see him today

(Chorus)
Did you know my Daddy fights
For something we call freedom
It makes me sad sometimes but mama says our Country needs him
He’s got a job that takes him far
The defender of the red and white stripes
My Daddy , he’s the keeper of the stars

Mama did my hair today
Picked out my favorite bow
Than I watched her put on her red lipstick
And some pretty dress up clothes

And we made a great big sign
Saying ‘ Daddy welcome home ‘
I used up a whole jar of sparkles
That way Daddy’s name would glow

He’s coming in on a big shiny airplane
And I finally get to see him today

(chorus)
Did you know .. My daddy fights
For something we call freedom
It makes me sad sometimes
But mama says our Country needs him
He’s got a job that takes him far
The defender of the red and white stripes
My Daddy , he’s the keeper of the stars

He’s got a big job that takes him far
The defender of the red and white stripes
My daddy … He’s the keeper of the stars
