Keith Magnus I am continually struck by Jasmine and her abilities as an artist and musician. This song is just another example of her incredible talent.

Frank Ried Beautiful extremely slow and soulfully sung adaption of a song by John Burns. - It's by far not the only wonderful adaption / rendition of Jasmine, but it stands for several other beautiful covers from her, which you can get for free on ReverbNation.

thanks from jasmine and me!


I hear ya cry, I hear you weep
I watch ya turning in your sleep
it breaks my heart and I can't take it anymore
I wish that I could give you what you're longing for

I know it's right, I know it's true
the love I have inside for you
I never realized the things you've given up
so we could have a life baby it's been tough
and in my mind I know it's wrong
holdin back my love so long
if I could go back and undo the things I've done
if that were possible baby I would run

if I were a millionaire,
I'd spend away all your cares
I buy a smile and put it on your pretty face
pay off your worries they'd be gone without a trace

but you know me I've not a dime
I couldn't buy an ounce of time
and lately I've been slacking on the love I give
but I'm here to tell you baby you're all I live for
(repeat chorus)
