I'll Be

Album: Missguided Roses (1998)
Charted: 5
  • The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful
    Stop me and steal my breath
    Emeralds from mountains and thrust towards the sky
    Never revealing their depth
    Tell me that we belong together
    Dress it up with the trappings of love
    I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips
    Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

    [Chorus]
    I'll be your cryin' shoulder
    I'll be love suicide
    I'll be better when I'm older
    I'll be the greatest fan of your life

    And rain falls angry on the tin roof
    As we lie awake in my bed
    You're my survival, you're my living proof
    My love is alive and not dead

    Tell me that we belong together
    Dress it up with the trappings of love
    I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips
    Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

    [Chorus]

    And I've dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead
    Tuned in, turned on, remembered the thing you said

    [Chorus: x2]

    The greatest fan of your life
    The greatest fan of your life Writer/s: EDWIN COLE MC CAIN

  • Orlando from CaliforniaI’ve always loved singing this song even though I never knew what love suicide meant. It’s what brought me here. Btw, Edwin, the Starry, Starry Night song is actually called Vincent. :) But no biggie.
  • Chelsea from Pa, AzSuch a beautiful song!!!
