  • Street lights along the highway
    Throwing shadows in the dark
    And the memories keep on turning
    To the rhythm of a broken heart

    You only need a roof when it's raining
    You only need a fire when it's cold
    You only need a drink when the whiskey
    Is the only thing that you have left to hold
    Sun comes up and goes back down
    And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground
    Say the word and I'll be there for you
    Baby, I will be your parachute

    Parachute
    There's a song that I remember
    I never learned to play
    And a lifetime of forgotten words
    I never got to say

    You only need a roof when it's raining
    You only need a fire when it's cold
    You only need a drink when the whiskey
    Is the only thing that you have left to hold
    Sun comes up and goes back down
    And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground
    Say the word and I'll be there for you
    Baby, I will be your parachute

    Parachute
    If you think you're going down
    Just know I will be around

    You only need a roof when it's raining
    You only need a fire when it's cold
    You only need a drink when the whiskey
    Is the only thing that you have left to hold
    Sun comes up and goes back down
    And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground
    Say the word and I'll be there for you
    Baby, I will be your
    Baby I will be your parachute

  • Wallace Crossley from Mountain Home, Texas If you haven't heard a Chris Stapleton concert, you haven't lived, he just knocks it out of the park.
  • The Dan from Ptk ScotlandPretty good tune!
  • Jo from EarthBrilliant piece of work. I'm completely biased & admit to being overwhelmed emotionally by this track. It holds a very deep meaning to me. This song perfectly describes everything I ever wanted to be for my late wife. Chris did a great job here of capturing the way it feels to never want a loved 1 to feel uncomfortable or sad. When your greatest pleasure in life is providing comfort & love to someone so loved you finally felt complete when you found them. Thank you Mr. Stapleton & God Bless Blondie Bond.
