Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Fixer Upper
 

 
I’ve been down too many roads
All littered with love gone bad.
Tears and agony came in loads
Leaving nothing of the good we had.

My heart has bled at each ending
There’s a hole you could whistle through.
When I learned they were all pretending
I wasn’t dead but I sure turned blue.

Chorus

Beautiful women walk through my days
But my beaten heart sees only a haze.

My heart is a fixer upper, like an old home
that needs a special touch.
Like a bad hair day, it needs a comb
To part the tangles and such.

Chorus

Beautiful women walk through my days
But my beaten heart sees only a haze.


You came along, not a moment too soon
And saw my eyes searching for hope.
You’ve been singing the same sad tune
In your heart as you tried to cope.

Bridge

A meeting of eyes from across a room
Swept away anguish like a new broom.


Somehow you saw a reclamation project
that your overflowing heart could take on.
I was the perfect subject in every respect
where the seeds of true love could spawn.

The mere touch of your hand sent a wave
through my heart that’s been hibernating.
Your tender words saved it from the grave,
Lord knows how long it’s been waiting.

Chorus

A beautiful woman walked into my life
Now this fixer upper has made her his wife.

Repeat chorus
