David Crosby – Melody lyrics

By David Crosby & Craig Doerge

You are my reason for being.
In my life's coldest season
I keep on seeing you: Melody

I am such
A patchwork of a man.
Out here trying to catch
Every whisper that I can
Of you: Melody

Wander, you know you wander
Through my life, all the time.
Follow, you know I'll follow
And when I do
Then my life starts to rhyme.

Sometimes I lose it;
I abuse it, and I fall
Into the worst damn places of all

Sometimes I even
Start to close my eyes
And then silence,
Comes to claim me as it's prize.

Suddenly, suddenly nearly
A song, rises up to fly
Oh melody, oh melody
Oh music, oh music of my life
I love you.
I love you.
I love you, yes I do, I love you.
