Artist: Samuel Lockridge
Album: When I Rise
I cut all the hair off my head
and I burned your scent from my bed
the night you told me the whole dirty truth
and I scattered the ashes for you.
And with one eye on the horizon
and the other one dragging behind,
I took off in the only direction I knew
would keep me away from you.
But everyone sees through my disguise
‘cause everyone bleeds and everyone dies.
An old man on the road gave me water
with tired but twinkling eyes
and when I asked him where it was I went wrong
“you don’t know what kind of journey you’re on.”
So for once I swallowed my pride,
and it felt just like choking on ice
– so rough at the start, but the warmth of the Heart
quickly melted it all into love.
And O, I could breath for the first time in years
a love so much more real than my own tears.
I always stay up late in the winter,
‘cause I cry whenever it snows.
And the icy moon says things I can’t understand,
but I still like to listen, you know.
Yeah, I still like to listen, you know.
