Line Without A Hook

Album: Montgomery Ricky (2016)
  • I don't really give a damn about the way you touch me
    When we're alone
    You can hold my hand
    If no one's home
    Do you like it when I'm away?
    If I went and hurt my body, baby
    Would you love me the same?
    I can feel all my bones coming back
    And I'm craving motion
    Mama never really learns how to live by herself
    It's a curse
    And it's growing
    You're a pond and I'm an ocean
    Oh, all my emotions
    Feel like explosions when you are around
    And I've found a way to kill the sounds, oh

    Oh, baby, I am a wreck when I'm without you
    I need you here to stay
    I broke all my bones that day I found you
    Crying at the lake
    Was it something I said to make you feel like you're a burden?
    Oh, and if I could take it all back
    I swear that I would pull you from the tide

    Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
    I said no (I said no), I said no (I said no)
    Listen close, it's a no
    The wind is a-pounding on my back
    And I found hope in a heart attack
    Oh at last, it is past
    Now I've got it, and you can't have it

    Baby, I am a wreck when I'm without you
    I need you here to stay
    I broke all my bones that day I found you
    Crying at the lake
    Was it something I said to make you feel like you're a burden, oh
    And if I could take it all back
    I swear that I would pull you from the tide

    Darling, when I'm fast asleep
    I've seen this person watching me
    Saying, "Is it worth it? Is it worth it? Tell me, is it worth it?" Oh
    Guess there is something, and there is nothing
    There is nothing in between
    And in my eyes, there is a tiny dancer
    Watching over me, he's singing
    "She's a, she's a lady, and I am just a boy"
    He's singing, "She's a, she's a lady, and I am just a line without a hook"

    Baby, I am a wreck when I'm without you
    I need you here to stay
    I broke all my bones that day I found you
    Crying at the lake
    Was it something I said to make you feel like you're a burden, oh
    And if I could take it all back
    I swear that I would pull you from the tide Writer/s: Ricky Montgomery
