Why must a man lose everything to find out what he wants?

I’m workin’ on the high hope
And if it all works out, you might just see me
Or hear from me in a while

I’m gonna make it across this tight rope
And I’m comin’ for my prize
No more I’ll be waitin’ ’round
While life just passes by

Maybe when our hearts realign
Maybe when we’ve both had some time
I’m gonna see you there

I’m gonna see you there, lay
Where we can be natural, lay

‘Cause I’ve been livin’ in the half life
Not sure which way to turn
Why must a man lose everything
To find out what he wants

I’m gonna wait until it feels right
And when that time has come
Wild horses won’t keep me back
From where you have gone

Maybe when we’re both old and wise
Maybe when our hearts have had some time
I’m gonna see you there

I’m gonna see you there, lay
Where we can be natural, lay

After all we’ve seen
We can do anything, lay
Where your heart is strong
Where we can go on and on, lay
Where your good times gone
Where we are forever young, lay
Where your heart is strong
Where we can go on and on, lay, lay!

 

Oh Glen Hansard, always right in the feels.

Maybe I Was Born….

To hold you In These Arms

The Swell Season – In These Arms

Use the truth as a weapon to beat up all your friends
Every chink in the armor
An excuse to cause offense
And the boys from the hallway calling out your name
And true love will find them in the end

You were restless
I was somewhere less secure
So I went running to the road
And so now there's a long list of places I was
I quit my rambling and came home

'Cause maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms

Use your saints and your mantra
And your things to keep you calm
If you stay with that asshole he's gonna do you harm
There's a voice singing loudly on the radio just for you
And good fortune will find him in the end

Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms

Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
