Story

This song is one of my personal favourites, inspired by one of those heart connections that are near impossible to let go of.

 

I was asked by someone to try and explain why this connection was so important to me and my response was simply “I've tried, but they're just sitting here, like a rock... actually it's not a rock—they're sitting here... like a boulder just underneath my shoulder (pinpointing my heart area) and I can't let them go.”

 

I sent the words to Kat and presto! Again, if you're a songwriter, I urge you to look at the words and see if you could possibly predict the exquisite melody that Kat created, in finishing this song; I never saw it coming and was beyond thrilled.

Lyrics

V1

I wanna peel your clothes off

Till there’s nothing left to bare

Just you and me, eye to eye

Standing in, God’s, air

V2

I promise I won’t make you bleed

Till you’ve nothing left/else to give

No, I’m not like her

When I’m with you

CH

You sit like a boulder here,

Just underneath my shoulder and I am

Way too weak to move you

And the truth is, I don’t know if I want to

You’ve gone and changed the landscape

Around my heart, and it feels so ahhh

Why would I wanna (go and) move you away?

V3

Come kiss my white bits

Now that my sun’s asleep

In my skin, I’m trembling with awe

I’m gonna keep, till, daylight

V4

Wishing time away was just

My way to have you near

And now I’m whispering to angels, to stop hands ticking

While you

CH

Sit like a boulder here,

Just underneath my shoulder and I am

Way too weak to move you

And the truth is, I don’t know if I want to

You’ve gone and changed the landscape

Around my heart, and it feels so ahhh

Why would I wanna (go and) move you away?

Bridge

Want you to use me, slowly infuse me

If you get cold feet, come try my body heat

Intensified by a look through your eyes

When I see you, you see me

CH X2

You sit like a boulder here,

Just underneath my shoulder and I am

Way too weak to move you

And the truth is, I don’t know if I want to

You’ve gone and changed the landscape

Around my heart, and it feels so ahhh

Why would I wanna (go and) move you away?

You sit like a boulder here,

Just underneath my shoulder and I am

Way too weak to move you

And the truth is, I don’t know if I want to

You’ve gone and changed the landscape

Around my heart, and it feels so ahhh

Why would I wanna (go and) move you away?
