Alison Krauss

I love Alison Krauss's voice, and the lyrics of her songs are some of my favourites. Her music is some of my best fic inspiration. The new CD I got in this week has a song called "Doesn't Have To Be This Way", and it's another winner.


Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

You smell like moonlight and early morning rain
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
Or find a cure for your decay

[Chorus:]
You're at your best with an ache in your chest
And that worn out old song that you play
Only Jesus and you who long to teach us
Should know and be left to betray

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
You can choose the dancer if you could choose the flame
I think you'll find they're one in the same
It doesn't have to be this way

[Chorus]

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay
It doesn't have to be this way
