Track 06 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin


Well babe,
I've been savin' for the rain
And in the sun you must remain
Grown hollow,
This holy eclipse you kiss and follow
Oh girl, I'm a boy and you're a shadow
But I love you so

Well you say,
That life lays where the sunlight stays
But oh I suppose those were different days
For now,
You thirst for midnight storms and shrouds
Oh girl, I'm a boy, you're an echo loud

As I howl to you,
Be my guardian angel and keep me from the night
As I trick you into drinkin' from my skies
Brought you along only to just leave you behind
And babe there ain't no shadows where there ain't no light

And by the shade,
This mask of love hides a scheming face
But oh, I scheme for to keep you safe
From the thunder
That rolls in the darkness and damns asunder
Oh girl, I'm the boy born to hold you under

As I cry to you,
Be my guardian angel-I love you, just sleep tight
As I trip you to my rivulets of night
Brought you along only to just leave you behind
And babe, there ain't no shadows where there ain't no light

So please go,
Peacefully to heaven's shores, you're goin' home
And that's a place I'll never know
Like you do, oh like you
Beautiful girl
If you're sent back to this dark world, come back as me
And maybe then you'll live to see how much I love you (x2)
