I'll Follow You

Album: Amaryllis (2012)
  • If I could find assurance
    To leave you behind
    I know my better half would fade
    And all my doubts
    Is a staircase for you
    Opened out of this base
    The first step is the one you believe in
    The second one might be profound

    I'll follow you down to the eye of the storm
    Don't worry I'll keep you warm
    I'll follow you down
    While we are passing through space
    I don't care if we fall from grace
    I'll follow you down

    You can have the money and the world
    The angels and the pearls
    Even trade my heart for color blue

    Just like the tower we never built
    And the shadow of all the guilt
    When the other hand was pointing at you

    Yet the first step is the one you believe in
    The second one might be profound

    I'll follow you down to the eye of the storm
    Don't worry I'll keep you warm
    I'll follow you down while we are passing through space
    I don't care if we fall from grace
    I'll follow you down to where forever lies
    Without a doubt I'm on your side
    There is no where else I'd rather be
    I'm not about to compromise
    Give you up to say goodbye
    I've got you through the deep
    I'll keep you close to me

    I'll follow you down to the eye of the storm
    Don't worry I'll keep you warm
    I'll follow you down
    While we are passing through space
    I don't care if we fall from grace
    I'll follow you

    If I could find assurance
    To leave you behind
    I know my better would fade
    I'll follow you down Writer/s: ERIC BASS, DAVE BASSETT, BRENT SMITH

  • Bailey from Cincinatti, OhioThis is I and my boyfriend's song :) beautiful lyrics!
  • Zero from The Abyss, NjIt seems that this song is a wedding song for a lot of people recently.
  • Melissa from Newtown, PaThis will always be my favorite song for the soul fact this is my wedding song. My husband and I both love rock and we didn't want anything clichéd in a sense. We were going through the playlist and stop here. September 14 2013 was the best day for me and the love of this song will continue down to our children and they will always know Shinedown.
