03. 8 Ways from Sunday

A Voice in the Wilderness Vol. 1
by David Vaters

       
Lyrics:

Monday comes and goes without a sweat
Sheís smiling even when I may forget Her birthday or some special time like when we first met
Now Tuesdayís laundry and picking up clothes
I go to work and I donít even know Sheís praying on her knees each day for us to be so close
She loves eight ways from Sunday

Now Wednesday thru Friday Iím on the road
A turn around 10,000 miles I roam Iím thinking of my girl my woman I left at home
I tremble as I try to find speed dial Hey Iím turning my life around Iíll be home in a while
Tears fall now on my face and only with Gods grace I begin to smile
She loves me eight ways for Sunday
Eight ways for Sunday

Sometimes she feels she hasnít done enough
the good lord and I know that its been so rough
One thingís for sure and for evermore weíll have each otherís loveÖ.. eight ways from Sunday

It used to be every weekend Iíd be gone
But now Iím taking care of things at home Iím committed to loving you all day long
I love you eight ways from Sunday
Eight ways from Sunday

I love her so and Iíll never let her go
I love her eight ways from Sunday
Eight ways from Sunday Ė one thing is for sure for evermore I love her eight ways from Sunday.

Eight ways to Sunday Words and music by David Vaters ASCAP 2015

Behind the Song:
I wrote this on a rainy day in a hotel room in Franklin, Tennessee. I wanted to tell my wife just how much I love her. I'm not a perfect man but I love her more than I can put into words. So, how do I love thee? 8 ways from Sunday! Thank you Susie for also loving me 8 ways from Monday thru Sunday!
