"Charlene" as written by Mark Christopher Batson and Anthony Cornelius Hamilton....
Woke up this morning found a letter that she wrote
She said she's tired that I'm always on the road
To hard to swallow being alone
She needs someone at night that she can hold

She must have told me a thousand times before
Silent cries I use to ignore
God knows I love her
Didn't mean to hurt her

Baby I'll be
Sitting here waiting on you to come home again
I won't leave
Promise I'll be here to the very end
By your side
To protect you and to love you and to be with you for life
Come on home to me Charlene

She knows I really love this old music thing
Since I was a child it's been my dream
I can support her treat her and spoil her
You know buy her the finer things

But I forgot about loving her
Damn the money, diamonds and pearls
What about the hard day she had with the baby
All she need is for me to love her

Baby I'll be
Sitting here waiting on you to come home again
I won't leave
Promise I'll be here to the very end
By your side
To protect you and to love you and be with you for life
Come on home to me Charlene

Promise I can't live without her
God knows I need her loving
And it hurts so bad that's she gone
I pray that she'll come back one day
In my life

Baby I'll be
Sitting here waiting on you to come home again
I won't leave
Promise I'll be here to the very end
By your side
To protect you and to love you and be with you for life
Come on home to me Charlene

Oh oh oh
Sometimes I cry
Charlene if you're listening would you call on me
Because my heart is aching

    General CommentAnthony Hamilton has an amazing voice. There's a lot of soul in his songs. this is kind of a simple song to understand; he's waiting for his woman to come back to him, yet it's so deep because of the way he sings.

    General CommentHis voice is amazing, my boyfriend and I worship this guy, nothing better than some anthony hamilton in the background whilst having a bubble bath with some candles. He is so sexy.
