THAT'S ALL IT TOOK
Gram Parsons


That's all it took

The mention of your name

And all my love for you burst into flames

I tried so hard

To let you got but look how

I still tremble at your name

That's all it took


That's all it took

To make me know that I still care

It seems my heart just can't give up

The dreams we used to share

I tell my friends I'm happy

But they read me like a book

And when today I heard them say your name

That's all it took


That's all it took

To make me yearn for your embrace

I guess I might as well admit

No one can take your place

I fell for you completely

Sinker, line and hook

And when today I heard them say your name

That's all it took

And when today I heard them say your name

That's all it took
