It is almost 2 AM and I am sitting up in bed drinking coffee and avoiding sleep. This song just came up on shuffle and I stopped to listen and it just hit me really hard and I started to cry. This is just so beautiful and heartfelt. It reminds me of this one night last summer that I was thinking about earlier today. It makes me miss things. I can’t sleep now. Maybe I’ll go outside.
I was on your porch The smoke sank into my skin So I came inside to be with you And we talked all night About everything we could imagine ‘Cause come the morning I’ll be gone And as our eyes start to close I turn to you and I let you know That I love you
When my dad was sick And my mom she cared for him Well her love, it nursed him back to life And me I ran I couldn’t even look at him For fear I’d have to say goodbye And as I start to leave Well he grabs me by the shoulder and he tells me
What’s left to lose Well you’ve done enough and if you fail well then you fail But not to us And these last three years I know they’ve been hard But now it’s time to get out of the desert and into the sun Even if it’s alone
So now here I sit In a hotel off of Sunset My thoughts bounce off of Sam’s guitar And that’s the way it’s been Oh ever since we were kids but now Well now we’ve got something to prove
And I I can see their eyes Oh but tell me something Can they see mine?
'Cause whats left to lose I’ve done enough And if I fail, well then I fail, but I gave it a shot And these last three years I know they’ve been hard But now its time to get out of the desert and into the sun Even if it’s alone Alone
Even if it’s alone Even if it’s alone
I was on your porch last night The smoke it sank into my skin
And as I start to leave he grabs me by the shoulder and he tells me: “Whats left to lose? You’ve done enough. And if you fail well then you fail but not to us. ‘Cause these last three years, I know they’ve been hard. But now its time to get out of the desert and into the sun; even if its alone.”
