Here are her lyrics:
Just Only You Can
Lyrics Chris O, Instrumental Composition Jonnie Cook © 2013
A bird that lay grounded, with a bruised and broken wing,
taking shallow breaths, couldn’t feel a thing.
I stilled down my body, my soul, and my blood,
And steadily and slowly turned my face away from love.
Well its only you, only you can fix this fearful heart.
Only you, just only you, can pull me in your river, so the rhythm can restart.
Only you, only you.
Never thought I would ever find an honest man
Surround me with your loving, as only you can
Never thought I could ever open up this heart
Haaaah…………..let the healing start
Who was that lonely one, who turned her face from love?
Who was the broken one?
Only you can know.
A heart that was sealed up, behind a wooden gate,
scarred and stranded, in a cold and empty place.
You pried away the timbers, that guard a battered soul,
pulled me in your river so I’ll never be alone.
Only you, only you, only you can fix this fearful heart.
Only you, just only you, can pull me in your river, make the beating start
Only you, only you, Haaaaah
Never thought that I would have a kind and a loving man,
You hold me in your drift-stream, just as only you can
Never thought I would ever fix this fearful heart
Surround me darlin, so the healing can start
Who was that broken one, who turned her face from love?
Who was the lonely one?
Just only you can know.
