The Lyrics

I went fishing a few days ago and thought of this. Mariah shot the music video of Love Takes Time on a beach.
I had it all
But I let it swim away
Couldn't see did it wrong
Now I wonder about
Feeling down and cold
Trying to believe that their gone

Fish takes time
To catch when you're hurrying so much
Couldn't see that I was blind
To let them go
I can't escape the mess inside
Because fishing takes time
I don't want to be here
I don't want to be here alone

Losing my mind
From this hollow in the rod
Suddenly I'm so incomplete
Lord I'm needing you now
Tell me how to catch them
They're swimming off endlessly


You might say that it's over
You might say that you don't care
You might say you don't want it
You don't need it
But I know that you do and I feel that you do inside

Good idea Amy, I think you started something, but I think you should rewrite it and add more changes to the original. Parodies take time to write!
