And If My Heart Should Somehow Stop


Verse 1

The wind changed, the first day that you came through

Cut the corn, washed it clean

Now everything that’s ever gone before, is like a blur

And It’s all because of you

And now i find, the city’s like a stranger to me

I once was fooled by Cadillacs and honey

But no one feels like you

Not like you

Not like you

Not like you

Cause even though the flower fades something takes it’s place

A marching band on a sunny day, pretty eyes or a pretty face


Then in the forest i made my home

Lay down on hard and ancient stone

Then if my heart should somehow stop

I’ll hang on, to the hope

That you’re not too late

That you’re not too late

Verse 2

And there are times i know when i will have to chase you

The further from my side you go, the long you grow

And i will hate it, but i’ll still want you,

And I’ll hate it though, i’ll still want you around

Even though the flower dies somethings by it’s side

A helping hand or a kiss goodbye, to ease it on it’s way
