From the recording Originals

Since Bree is out of town this week we don't have any new recordings to put up. Here is a song we've sung a few times at Victor's NY Deli recently. This is a demo from back in the '80s. Perhaps we'll record it again with Bongo and the Point.

Lyrics

How many nights did I
How many days did I cry
How many things did I
How many ways did I try
My heart was far from tender
I never would surrender
I had wounds that time could never heal

This time it's real
This time it's real
This time it's really, really, really, really real

How many nights have you
How many days have you cried
How many things have you
How many ways have you tried
You thought that you could take it
You always said you'd make it
You have wounds that time can never heal

This time it's real
This time it's real
This time it's really, really, really, really real

When I didn't care
He knew my pain
Would drive me home
Now not even hell itself
Can drive me from His arms

How many nights did I
How many days did I cry
How many things did I
How many ways did I try
I thought that I could take it
I always said I'd make it
But I had wounds that only He could heal

This time it's real
This time it's real
This time it's really, really, really, really real

This time it's real
This time it's real
This time it's really, really, really, really real
