She Said...aka...The Lyric Compromise

**Editor's note: Today is new CD day for me and I finally got a greatest hits collection of Collective Soul. Because my head is just not in the political game today, have some lyrics instead. There has to be some sort of compromise on days like this.

She said that time is unfair
To a woman her age
Now that wisdom has come
Everything else fades
She said she realizes
She's seen her better days
She said she can't look back
To her days of youth
What she thought were lies
She later found was truth
She said her daddy had dreams
But he drank them away
And her mother's to blame
For the way she is today

Life's river shall rise
She Said
And only the strong shall survive
She Said
But I'm feeling quite weak
She Said
Will you comfort and forgive me
She Said

She said she's still searching
For salvation's light
She said she wishes all day
And she prays all night
She said she won't speak of love
Because love she's never known
She said it's moments like these
She hates to be alone

Forgive me
She said

And I thought I was the only person left who still likes Collective Soul and who bought anything after Hints, Allegations.... Actually, I already owned all the previous albums, so I couldn't bring myself to get the Greatest Hits collection just for two more tracks.

I don't own all of the albums, I actually only own Dosage and have some other tracks burned on various CDs. 7even Year Itch is awesome!
