Sterling Price-McKinney: Music & Lyrics

Almost

(Sterling Price-McKinney)
Words and Music by Sterling Price-McKinney
From his one-man-musical-show "The Late Twentieth Century Love Affair".
They wanted you.
But everything seemed strange and new.
Everything went much too fast,
to ever last.
You didn't fall.

You wanted to.
But didn't know what next to do.
And somehow as surrender neared,
they disappeared ...
and never called.

Almost.
You almost fell in love.
You almost let your heart run free.
And let it see,
on it's own.
Almost.
A point you've been before.
But now you know there's so much more than ...
Almost falling in love.

You wanted them.
But that voice inside said,
"Not again ...
We've done this road before.
You can't take any more.
They never last."

So you walked away.
And think about it to this very day.
You waited much too late.
You laughed at fate.
Now romance
is in the past.

Almost.
You almost fell in love.
You almost let your heart run free.
And let it see,
on it's own.
Almost.
You might have found
the stars and more.
And now you'll never settle for just ...
Almost falling in love.

Almost.
You might have found true love.
And now you know there's so much more than ...
Almost falling in love.
And now you'll never settle for ...
Almost falling in love.

Almost ...
Almost ...
Almost ...
Falling in love.
