Almost There.

Almost there
but itís taken me years
you can forget that old clichť
about blood, sweat and tears
Itís more like busting my ass
each weekend, year after year
singing in backwater dives
for no one who cared to hear.

no one really cared to hear.

Playing covers that never
seemed to cover the fact
that I was struggling each day
to write my own damn tracks
with voracious bill collectors
always giving me flack
till all the efforts I made have
finally cut me some slack
cause my wallets grown fat
yeah my wallets grown "FAT!:
Yeah, babe Iím back in the black
oh, yeah I'm back in the black.

Almost there.......

Yeah Iím almost there
but itís taken forever
I had to learn to reach farther
then my last endeavor
I had to satisfy the audience
with something more clever
Iíve got doors opening up
and Iím ready to enter
Fame is holding my ticket
and Iíll see you all stage center.
I'll see you all stage center

And like I promised you baby
we are almost there
though you spent so many
weekends with me off somewhere
you waited for me faithfully
with love to share
and though I may never
ever be a Millionaire
Iíve got more than any riches
with your love so rare
Thereís almost nothing else
the world can offer
that compares
Except you saying "yes,"
to that white wedding
because my life was a mess
but you get me through the stress,
by always being there
to bless my tribulations
with your sweeeeeet administrations of love..
and now you're all Iím dreaming of
and I canít be at the top
if your sweet love were to stop
No I canít be at the top
If your sweet love were to stop.

Letís make a contract for
that isle wedded bliss
where two are always two
and one is never spoken
and promises are never broken

Where the fruits of
love are abundant
and so damn easy reach.
letís spend our lives together
on that warm, sunny beach
your love is all that I need
Your love is all that I needÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖBaby

Almost There!!

Weíre almost there, baby
Letís take those joyous steps together
In a long walk to forever
forever in love Baby
Forever in loveÖÖ..

Hey there MFB...................I like the lyrics......the recording sounds "distant", however.
Good luck.........
