For You

Album: Unguarded (2015)
  • [Verse 1]
    When the door shuts, bolted, I'm thrown out of the way
    The girl who borrowed someone, I'm the night without the day!
    & when the week moves onwards, it's ruthless and it's gray
    Like this girl who once held someone & was caught along the way

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 2]
    And when I'm brought forth, stranded, I'm broken, I am grazed
    From a choice, a second class one, you are the livin' proof of phase
    And when your swollen heart, teased, fickle n' insane
    Makes the call to me yo someone, you are the meanin' of my name

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    To make that call fo' someone
    To show them all you've got
    To make that call fo' someone
    To show them all you've got
    And oh when your only love has gone, slipped away
    Oh, when your only love has gone, slip away
    In the night befo' we sleep, the day is ours for us to keep
    And in the night you say to me, say a prayer, say a prayer for me Rae
    To make that call fo' someone
    To show them all you've got
    To make that call fo' someone
    To show them all you've got

    [Chorus] Writer/s: RACHEL ANNE MORRIS, SIMON ROBBS, ARIEL ZVI RECHTSHAID
