From the recording AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU

I wrote this the day the terrible tornado hit Nashville in 1996. Woke up with melody and lyric in my head, put it down on cassette, then took cover. When I got this rare tape from Becca, I about lost it..for 2 reasons..or should I say 3..

Maureen absolutely nails it, and toward the end of the take, I can hear my late doggies Minstrel and Paul barking. I'm so glad I have them on tape...'sniffff..'

I love this sad, sad song. It's our first band rehearsal of it..we performed it a handful of times at our gigs.

Lyrics

AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU

AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU
WHY CAN'T I JUST LET YOU GO?
I'M BESIDE MYSELF AWAY FROM YOU
NO..YES..I'M SURE I LOVE YOU SO
AND EACH DAY I FEEL MORE LOST
AND EACH NIGHT I TURN AND TOSS
HOPING YOU'LL SLIP IN OUT OF THE BLUE
IS MY MIND SLIPPING TOO?
AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU

AS I FEEL MYSELF TOUCHING YOU
WHY CAN I NOT SEE YOU'RE GONE?
THEN I TELL MYSELF I'M SUCH A FOOL
FOR NEEDING SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT
STILL THIS TORCH FOR US I KEEP
TIL I FORCE MYSELF TO SLEEP
KNOWING DEEP INSIDE WE'RE REALLY THROUGH
GUESS I'M BLIND TO THE TRUTH
AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU

(SOLOS)

TO MY FRIENDS WHO FEEL THE URGE TO ADVISE ME SAVE YOUR WORDS
A HEART CAN'T MAKE DECISIONS SPLIT IN TWO
AND CRYING'S WHAT I DO
AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU..

HANDS OF TIME PULL ME THROUGH
AS I FIND MYSELF LOSING YOU
