Track 01 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin


So here lays my name
Laid to rest on a bed of shame
And I have nothing to say that you haven't heard
But I turn the darkness on
To let it shine down on everyone
In hopes that I hear a voice that fits with my words

Cause I found life in this place
When I wrapped my hands all around your waist
And lynched my dreams from the trees like old tire swings
And I'm gonna love you until
Silence sings alongside my will
For you know all that goes in the fall must come back in the spring
And my dear, it don't mean a thing

Say I'm a no one now
That's all I'll ever be anyhow
I've only clenched my fist when light danced in my hand
Just like those silhouettes, that burn on the tips of your cigarettes
It's something I can only explain as well as you can understand

That I found life in this place
When I traced a grin to your grieving face
Be it Cheshire or Chelsea like garland that hangs from your ears?
But never mind, lemme love you until
Stillness runs alongside my heels
When you look for yourself you may find that all is a mirror
And it don't mean a thing, my dear
