Track 11 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin

lyrics

Steal me a wedding ring
So I can marry to the morning
And never grow tired of a'wakin'
When doors of tomorrow swing
And spring into summersaults that fall to me unhinged
The winter is what I'll go a chasin'
For all of these points of view
Well they seem to me to be too beaten and abused
For me to feel like anyone at all
To top of the trees I'll climb
And slip myself into that saddle in the sky
And laugh upon your call

Cause I feel so good without you now
That my echo no need longer trail your howl
Yes, I feel so good without you now
But I still need you for somethin' to not give a damn about

Over the hills I stroll
Leavin' trails in my steppin' stones
For a lonesome soul to find me a'climbin'
When through some strangers eyes
I've had visions of the empty skies
That reign above the gone good timin'
But why do I chase the wind
When it blows around the world and licks my back again
And makes me feel like I was never born
To mountain tops I'll pull
And drink myself dry til the thunder starts to roll
And flattens out your call

Cause I feel so good without you now
That my echo no need longer trail your howl
Yes, I feel so good without you now
But I still need you for somethin' to not give a damn about
You're somethin' I don't give a damn about
So baby, how's that make you feel now?
You're somethin' I don't give a damn about

Suppose I sail away
And point my two feet towards the war torn days
Where the answer lays within the foot steps
That are now yours to take
Well use them as you want and let 'em drip away
But write this down before you forget
That life will be bitter sweet
When you find that you're stuck at points where past and future meet
Suspended like a spider at web's end
'Tween heaven and the earth
That's where I'll be found when your seams split in reverse
And rhyme right with my call

Cause I feel so good without you now
That my echo no need longer trail your howl
Yes, I feel so good without you now
But I still need you...
And yes, I feel so good without you now
That I'm no longer the ground beneath your plow
Yes, I feel so good without you now
But I still need you, babe for somethin' to not give a damn about
