What You Got

lyrics

Won't you believe me
I won't change a word
don't you deceive me
or no one ever learns
that now is the best of times
and all these lies just make us blind
and everybody knows

the only way I'll leave is with you by my side
the only place I'll go is where you hide
when I see your face you lift me up
the only thing I want is what you got

now that I see you
and I can feel your heart
now that I see you
and no one is in the dark
this fortune is in our hands
there's no way out if it goes as planned
and everybody knows

the only way I'll leave is with you by my side
the only place I'll go is where you hide
when I see your face you lift me up
the only thing I want is what you got

you're the way I waste my time
you're the way I lose my mind
just a rose beside the road

the only way I'll leave is with you by my side
the only place I'll go is where you hide
when I see your face you lift me up
the only thing I want is what you got

the only thing I want is what you got
the only thing I want is what you got
you're the only thing
the only thing I want is what you got

about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs. I write love songs and political songs but mostly love songs.

I play a lot of acoustic guitar, some electric, and different kinds of piano plus accordions and harmoniums and other assorted weird shit.
