Story

This song is another of my favourite co-writes. It comes from a place of deep loss, yet the melody and phrasing that Kat came up with, lends an almost lullaby quality to it that, for me, is soothing and I find myself unconsciously singing it from time to time.

 

The words came first, along with a melody in my head that was B-O-R-I-N-G but having said that, I emailed them to Kat and what she created I absolutely L-O-V-E.

Lyrics

V1

Don’t talk to me; talking only makes me weak

I’ve left him now, and prayed his soul to keep

Life’s how, it happens, when you turn away or blink

And what you thought was solid ground, slowly washes down

PC1

Would I do it differently? Feel you close to me?

I don’t think so, no I don’t think so

CH

’cause anywhere you go, you go with me

Only truth can set your soul, can set your soul free

Anywhere you go, you go

Only truth can set your soul free

V2

My words are just an ocean, somewhere safe for you to swim

Don’t be frightened/afraid of the undertow, every time you step in

PC2

Hush sweet baby, don’t cry, my arms will keep you safe

And lead you to, a better place

CH

Anywhere you go, you go with me

Only truth can set your soul, can set your soul free

Anywhere you go, you go

Only truth can set your soul free

Anywhere you go, you go

With me

Bridge

Felt so sure you needed me to help you stay afloat

If I thought you’d feel unsafe I would’ve never led you in 

To feel emotion running thin; my ocean’s deep

CH

’cause anywhere you go, you go with me

Only truth can set your soul, can set your soul free

Anywhere you go, you go

Only truth can set your soul free, truth can set your soul free

Anywhere you go

With me, with me, with me

OUTRO

With me; with me
