PoL #6 – What the Lyrics Say

What if I’m wrong, what if I’ve lied
Nothing will change, I feel the same

What if I’ve dragged you here to my own dark night
Similar bleeds, similar souls, lost and then found

And what if I know, what if I see
If you only knew, wanting you near

There is a crack run right down the front of me
Breaking me down, breaking you down…

What if they’re right, what if we’re wrong
Who are they… we belong to each other

What if I’ve lured you here with a siren song
Intentions… bold and strong

But if I be wrong, if I be right
You are for me and I am for you

Let me be here with you tonight
Yes please… what the lyrics say

Ten thousand cars, ten thousand trains
Distance and time between us… holding you

There are ten thousand roads to run away
Leaving histories… futures curve in our favor

But I am not lost, I am not found
Clarity beaming truth… you and I

I am not Dylan’s wife, not Cohen’s hound
I am a nobody… with you a somebody

But if I be wrong, if I be right
You are for me and I am for you

Let me be here with you tonight
Yes please… what the lyrics say

And what if I can’t, what if I can
If I could… I so would… make love to you

What if I’m just an ordinary man
What if I’m just an ordinary woman

If there is a will, there is a way
Hoping the breath into “us”

I will escape for sure, I am David Blane
Forever trapped in our lyric, no escape

But if I be wrong, if I be right
You are for me and I am for you

Let me be here with you
Yes please… what the lyrics say

If I be wrong, if I be right
You are for me and I am for you

Let me stay here in your arms tonight
Catching my breath! Let it be this way forever!

And I have been wrong, I have been right
Experience with wings, soaring in love

I have been both these things all in the same night
A lifetime lived in a day… together

So if I be wrong, if I be right
Let me be yours right or wrong

Let me be here with you tonight
Stay here with me… forever
