Track 09 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin

lyrics

Well out in the back roads of our yard
There's a suicide silence that shakes hard through the dark
And bases ring around the broken hearts
That you touch to keep safe from my seekin' arms

So slowly I skip back to riverside
To the last known place that you had gone to hide
And tagged me to be chased by dreams to find
A deliverance from your absence in my eyes

And by the light the night sky bleeds
I'll cut my ties and let the water cover me
And when I've seen you hang by your own tree
I'll be free from the riverside in me

Well old friend, like the games we used to play
In forty corners my call has carved your name
But you laugh at me like Lazarus fraught with no faith to be raised
By the shadows drippin' dark from shades of day

And by the light the night sky bleeds
I'll cut my ties and let the water cover me
And when I've seen you hang by your own tree
I'll be free from the riverside in me (x2)
