Lyrics



I been deep in the weeds for so long now

That it’s starting to look like up to me

I got fireflies sending signals out

but it looks like it’s all up to me

Life, she caught me slumbering

the wake up call came much too late

I went to dial your number friend

But the numbers didn’t add up straight

I had nothing to show you but I had somewhere to go

So I walked outside, on down the line

And I lay my body down, can’t get my feet back on the ground

walk my head around, walk my head around

If I can stay alive, If I can stay alive, If I can stay alive

I could be somebody tomorrow

I’m not saying keep sharp objects away

but I cut this shirtsleeve from my heart

and if red is the color of life and love

I want to wear your love like heaven, yea

My desire to survive is second only to my desire to be loved by you

Let me take you

to the waters edge, show you how beautiful you are in the reflection of these tears

in the reflection of these years

If I can stay alive, if I can stay alive, If I can stay alive

I could be somebody tomorrow

You say you’d love me anyway, and if I were the hotel maid I think you’d love me more

But I feel like a loser, like a shaker not a mover, like a worn out lonely whore

I been deep in the weeds for so long now

Machete swing don’t cut me down

One more day and I just might

Turn this darkness into light

If I can stay alive, if I can stay alive, if I can stay alive

I could be somebody tomorrow

him, run for
