Track 03 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin

lyrics

Well you and all your fears
I can see them in your eyes
And whisper lies into your ears
I was born to steal your heart

For I am but a thief
Here to become all your best and leave what's left to no relief
Yes, I'll split your tears apart

And there was just no time
To explain to you a reason or a rhyme
But I'll borrow all your sorrows
And through all of your tomorrows I will stay
And then I'll walk the line
And there is only one price that you must pay
I will die for you tomorrow only if you swear to die for me today

And I, with all I know
Will burn away my haunted memories with the flame inside your soul As you watch its blackened smoke lead me away

And I'll be gone riding the wind
On to another hundred lovers with my lies I must begin
And you know, it's nothing personal, so they say

And there was just no time
To explain to you a reason or a rhyme
But I'll borrow all your sorrows
And through all of your tomorrows I will stay
And then I'll walk the line
And there is only one price that you must pay
I will die for you tomorrow only if you swear to die for me today

And so this song it plays
And on and on throughout the cross of love and loneliness it stays
But you know the pain will pass well over time

And then you will see
Just like the mirror I reflect on you all the lies I have received
Over years of dealing with your precious kind

And there was just no time
To explain to you a reason or a rhyme
But I'll borrow all your sorrows
And through all of your tomorrows I will stay
And then I'll walk the line
And there is only one price that you must pay
I will die for you tomorrow only if you swear to die for me today
