"The Day That Marvin Gaye Died" as written by and Robert William Crawford Scott Yancey Avett....
I think I dreamed you, again last night.
I hope wherever you are, things turned out right.
But it's never the same, when you lose and you gain.

I see the truth now
I see the truth now
I just want to hold you
I should have told you
We are in love
We are in ...

You tan stomach; and that mole on your lip.
We coulda had it all in one time; if I didn't slip.
Trip on my words; and land on my heart.

I see the truth now
I see the truth now
I just want to hold you
I should have told you
We are in love
We are in ...
We are in ...
We are in ...

The road can be cold
and it's always long.
The sermon I whisper these days
are the words to a song
Are you in the old town?
Are you buckled in?

It's not the same
Our lives are not the same
I still want to hold you
I should have told you
We are in love
We are in ...

Love is on it's way
The dying wish of Marvin Gaye
Michelle I know you'll understand
The answers in your hands
The answers in your hands
