Track Name: Just The Thought
1st Verse
I always thought that she looked beautiful
In everyday dresses and shoes
I always loved the way she wore her hair
Too bad she never even knew

Chorus
If just the thought really counted she’d still be in my arms
If just the thought really counted she would not be gone
She’d a’ heard each word runnin' through my head even though I never said it
I wouldn’t be thinking lonely thoughts right now if just the thought really counted

2nd Verse
I almost picked her up a rose at the Texaco
But I bought cigarettes instead
I almost told her that I needed her
But I just kept it to myself

2nd Chorus
If just the thought really counted she’d still be loving me
If just the thought really counted I'd a' never watched her leave
She’d a’ heard each word runnin' through my head even though I never said it
I wouldn’t be thinking lonely thoughts right now if just the thought really counted

Bridge
I always heard it’s just the thought that counts but I know it's a lie
Cuz she would have known I needed her if she could've read my mind

3rd Verse
I saw her in the grocery store today
The butterflies started to churn
Had everything I'd always meant to say
Right on the tip of my tongue

Last chorus
If just the thought really counted she’d still be in my arms
If just the thought really counted she would not be gone
She’d a’ heard each word runnin' through my head even though I never said it
I wouldn’t be thinking lonely thoughts right now if just the thought really counted
