Flesh And Blood

Album: Don't Give Up on Me (2002)
  • Come sit beside me
    That'll do for now
    The night has come and left me
    Just the light that you allow

    Come speak my name
    Fill my head with all such foolish dreams
    My flesh and blood
    Is no more real to me
    Than what it seems

    My love for you is burning
    Like a spark along a fuse
    I feel your mark upon me now
    As surely as the hand that leaves the bruise

    Life is for the living
    And life comes hard for some
    The rest of us with flesh and blood
    Make it hard all along

    All I ever wanted
    Was the freedom to refuse
    Or something of my own to love enough
    To hate
    To lose

    The fever in my brain
    Is leaving smoke behind my eyes
    But the part of me that wants to change
    Fights the part of me that trys

    Come see the golden light
    Cause I've turned the gold light on
    Sometimes god knows
    You gotta learn to shine, shine, shine shine, shine gold.

    I stepped out of darkness
    And for a moment
    I'm only living by your kiss your kiss your kiss your kiss your
    Lips your kiss
    And now, just for now, our flesh and blood
    Is more real than this
    More real than this Writer/s: JOE HENRY
