I know your mama said some bad things about me
and some of them are probably true
But you'll never know how she treated me
or how much your daddy loves you

it's a shame we couldn't fix it
but we were sleeping with our swords
they say all is fair in love and war

When I think back, I'm still driving you home
you're in the back seat
I blinked my eyes and now you're grown
do you remember what blue whales eat?

Love ain't competition
but we were always keeping score
i guess all is fair in love and war

now I'm the devil on your shoulder
and Sometimes i get mad as Hell
I'm not as bad as they've all told you
But I'm here waiting for a time, that time will only tell
To save you in a fight, always here to wish you well
And everything will be alright
Like the old times

Time has passed I built my walls
of one way glass and Virginia stone
I will answerif you ever call
A Dad's last chance to right his wrongs

these years in isolation
Have left me tattered and torn
but I guess all is fair in Love and War

Jeff Lane Tennessee

Combining soul-infused folk with a country-blues edge, Tennessee native Jeff Lane puts big stories to song from a common man's point of view. His style is like taking a ride in a '76 Thunderbird, ridin' shotgun with Bill Withers and Paul Thorn!
