Well, I told you don’t you ever walk away from me
Close your eyes and remember how you could see
In the darkness as I sang from that dusty old stage
We locked eyes and were both free from our cage

The love in my eyes, the thrill of the words in the song
Once I saw you there I thought I have waited so long

Don’t you hurt me now, don’t you make my eyes red
Take me in your arms, my love, and take me now to your bed
We will listen for our lovers loud and rapid heartbeat
Sweat dripping our bodies alive in the southern heat

The love in my eyes, the thrill of the words in the song
Once I saw you there I thought I have waited so long

Forgiving you once again for your lies and cheating on me
Cut down little by little along with my favorite oak tree
Broken my heart and killed by your words slowly again
Can I ever forget, oh her scent, is still alive on your beautiful skin

The love in my eyes, the thrill of the words in the song
Once I saw you there I thought how I have waited so long

Oh, how I waited so long
Oh, how I waited so long

    1. Thank you Brenda. Your words mean a lot to me my friend. I hope you got my message about not being able to make a comment on several post. It just said their was an error. It finally took one. I get irritated but am trying to accept the fact that I am blessed to hear and see your post and that sometimes you and I have a problem with each other’s sites. Have an amazing day. Love and hugs to you Brenda. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ₯°πŸ’• Joni

      1. Oh, Joni, I love trying to “talk” to the WP Happiness engineers” they try so very hard to “Not understand anything we say unless we are talking “geek talk” which I don’t know about you, but I “no speak a da English!” Sorry, can’t help poking a little fun at them. My Sun fixed my site for me, but I am sure I will have a lot of “fun” when I try to do my anchor project. Don’t ask unless you already are ahead of me and have it working for you. I have been working on cleaning our MH so we can do some traveling. Maybe to where you are???

      2. I have not been able to send you a single response which is frustrating. I can see your post but even today my responses came right back. This has been going on for a while. You better let me know if you are close to us my friend. I hope I can connect to you soon. Hope your having a great evening. We will see
        If this comes flying back. Love ❀️ Joni

      3. Yea this one finally went. Maybe it is working. Yea!!! Sending hugs and bet you were making waffles today. Love ya ❀️Joni

    1. It doesn’t seem to be working through the reader. You have to go into a browser and open up the-inner-child.com. We are trying to fix it. Thanks so much for letting me know my friend. Love ❀️ and hugs to you both. Sorry about the song. So glad you told me. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ’•Joni

      1. You are a sweetheart for telling me Francisco. The last one worked with reader but this one did not. Scott got on line and put a link to the my site it is working there. So it is unfortunately another step because you have to go back to the reader. It sounds a bit better with ear buds or Bluetooth. I just use Macs voice memo and no Mike so to you it has to sound pretty raw. Thanks again my friend for letting me know. Sending my love to you two cozy in Valencia. By the way your sweetie is an amazing marketer, really talented. πŸ’•πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ₯°

      2. Thank you Joni, I will look on your site for sure and yes, she is an amazing girl in many ways! I am truly blessed with her. Love to you both and blessings from sunny ValΓ¨ncia πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ

  1. I love the lyrics Jonikins! And you sing it beautifully. Not an easy thing to sing acapella. You are much more brave than I to put yourself out there and I applaud your uniqueness!

    1. Thank you so much Brad. You are such a sweetheart and your words mean a lot. You know of course you are right Brad but the older I get the the more I do things that make ME happy. This doesn’t include being offensive. I never want to hurt anyone.

      Part of it is making up for lost time as a child. Thank you especially for your gracious comment on my uniqueness, that really made me smile I don’t even have a little computer mike. I wait till only my little side kick Esther, my dog is home and sing into my Mac and I use an application called voice memo. It does sound a bit better with Bluetooth or ear buds.

      By the way I don’t know if I have ever heard a more beautiful A cappella group then the Pentatonic group. You can find them on you tube. The BYU A cappella men are amazing and their group brings me to tears, they are just phenomenal.

      By the way I am really loving your romantic poetry. I love them all but wow pretty amazing. Have a great rest of your week. Love to you my friend. πŸ’•πŸ€—

      1. Thank you Jonikins! I love acapella music. You may want to check out “Rockapella”. The first found their rise to fame doing the “Folgers” jingle.

      2. Oh my josh your kidding me. I will definitely check them out. Thank you so much my friend. I remember my parents making Folgers coffee, or wait, could that have been me. Great catchy name too. Thank you my lovely friend. Have a blessed rest of your week Brad. Love ❀️ Jonikins

    1. Thank you Tim I am glad you liked it. By the way I was blown away by the incredible amount of detail on your beautiful guitar and cover of course, what an amazing collaboration that was. She is a talented artist. Sending hugs to y’all and hugs to your trees and all your furry loved ones including those owls. β€οΈπŸ€—Joni

    1. Oh thank you so much you have touched my heart deeply Sovely. Your kindness and comments on my song mean so much to me. I really appreciate your friendship and support. I wish my parents would have gotten me dual citizenship. I think I shared with you that I was born in Munich and from the pictures taken it was so beautiful. Sending you such appreciation and love. Yours, Joni πŸ€—β€οΈ

      1. Dear Joni, you are very welcome! You should come back to Germany, when traveling is more convenient again. You always have a tourist guide living in Northern Germany!

    1. I am sorry, Francisco told me he couldn’t hear it either. So there is a link there to my site page if you click on it from the Reader it should come right up.

      May the sunshine bring happy thoughts filled with comforting love my friend. In a package wrapped with love will be the gift that I will what I send.

      1. It was soooo awesome to hear you “live” in the flesh. I try not to miss but I do and I don’t think it’s possible with WP not to and have a life.
        It was my joy and pleasure.

        I’m feeling your love and warmth surrounding me now and I love every minute of your beautiful gift!

      2. Always my pleasure Sunshine. You are right, we could visit those we care about all day long every day and not touch the surface. It becomes overwhelming for me at times. However, it is such a blessing in my life. Meeting people like you who seem like a next door neighbor almost. Love you Sunshine Cindy. xoxoxo

      3. Oh it’s soooo true Joni and to save us both since we do have other things to do but who wants to really, I will just say love ya like crazy neighbor! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒ·

    1. I bet you can sing a song and I bet you use to sing to the ladies too! Thank you for your very kind words John. It is funny how our voices change as we get older. I use to sing all the time and I can not even come close to hitting the notes I use to be able to hit. I am sure you don’t sound like a wounded dog my friend. Hope all is well with you and everyone in your family is healthy my friend. Stay safe John, sending hugs and love to you. We are having a lovely day in NC I bet you are having a warm day as well. xoxoxo

      1. Cold in Michigan today. Tomorrow a warm day. Here in Michigan. We never know dear Joni. Your voice is beautiful. Just need more practice. The only one who loved my singing is my grand-daughter Mia. Have some fun and stay safe my friend.

      2. What a beautiful gift for your grand daughter. She will never forget your sweet songs. I can tell she has stolen your heart. I am enjoying my evening dear John. Love ❀️ Joni

  6. What a perfect way to cheer up my raining drizzle grey day at home, to hear sweet Joni singing. I love the jazzy element of your voice & that you share it with us. Keep on signing Joni, from all the wonderful comments from your community, they are enjoying the musical treat too! Love you much!

    1. Hi buddy, you are such a sweetheart. I am excited that we are soon going to get to catch up. I sure love and miss you. It is Misty, and cool here today too. I love you dearest Janette. Can’t wait to talk soon. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ’• Give my love to Mark and kiss the fairies. πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸ»πŸ§šπŸ»

  7. You have so many amazing gifts, Joni! Your words, both read and heard are filled with emotion and honesty, it’s impossible not to feel your soul! So well done, thank you for sharing your being with us, you are beautiful! πŸ₯°πŸ€—β€πŸ’•
