      About "One Part Be My Lover"

      Lyrics for Bonnie Raitt - "One Part Be My Lover"

      When he looks into her eyes
      He sees only the truth
      Telling him he's been living a lie
      over and over like a line in a song
      About all the love he let pass by.

      To her he might be the man of her dreams
      To find where she's been hiding inside
      Broken or battered, it really doesn't matter
      Her heart's like a wave and he's the tide.

      They're not forever they're just for today
      One part be my lover, one part go away.

      He's like a boxer who had to retire
      After winning but killing a man
      He's got all the moves and none of the courage
      Afraid to throw a punch that might land.

      Not too much later she can't meet his glance
      You see her start pulling away
      Over and over like fire and ice
      One is color, one is grey.

      They're not forever, they're just for today
      One part be my lover, one part go away.

      So if you know how
      Why don't you say'em a prayer
      They're need all the help they can get
      They remember too much about what went wrong
      It might be they should learn to forget.

      Forget themselves in each other
      And leave what belongs in the past
      Carry their hearts like a newborn child
      Cause it's only the moment that lasts.

      They're not forever,they're just for today
      One part be my lover,one part go away.
