Lyrics

I Held Out lyrics

By Sheryl Diane

 

Oh I held out a place in my heart for you . . .

 

Now you've gone sadly astray

like a fool off-leash hound

Why can't you be

the kind of dawg I'd keep around?

 

You could come here

Or you could stay there

 

'Cuz honey I ain't gonna give chase...

 

But I held out a place in my heart for you.

I held, held out it's true

I'm gonna keep that place in my heart for you

a doghouse deep in the dark.

 

See you buried my heart

here just like a bone

to return to it

If I'd pick up that phone

 

So when you come back

like you always do

 

Lookin' a disgrace, waitin' outside my gate

 

Oh I held out a place in my heart for you

Yeah ya' had me tangled up, oh that you knew

I'm gonna keep that place in my heart for you

a doghouse deep in the dark.

 

'Cuz I know that you're there

laying on her front porch

still trackin' the scent of what's

cookin' up north!

 

Oh I held out a place in my heart for you

I held out, held out it's true

Oh, there's still a place in my heart for ya' baby

That doghouse deep in the dark, painted blue.
