Some Stay'n'Measure

some stay n measure

 

Black smudged hands from the eyes of last night

Staring out at the birds on a branch holding tight

Try as hard as try I just might, I can't seem to be up for this fight.

Please come back

Please come back

 

Some stay'n' measure, some run away

Some go under 'till another day

Some stay'n'measure, some run away

Some go around and loose their way.

 

Scattered petals from a messed up thrown bouquet

Bridges burned never gonna be ok

I lost my fire, put my light away

 It"s all too stark now in the cold light of day

 Please come back

 Please come back

 

Some stay'n'measure, some run away

Some go under 'till another day

Some stay'n'measure, some run away

Some go around and loose their way.
