Lori McKenna – For You lyrics

You said you were leaving
And it's time for you to go
You tell me to just move on
I don't understand
You're saying it's over but I'm saying no
I never claimed to be brave or strong
But there was a time
When you loved me

Easy for you
You can hold your head up high
She's waiting somewhere across town
But what about me
Without you, who am I
Who am I without here to be your clown

I draw a breath and I cry
Because I was born

For you - my arms to hold you tight
To love you every night
Every night
For you - I could sail across the sky
Swim an ocean baby
I was born for you

You are so coy
Acting like you don't know the cost
The payment I made for your kiss
I was your penny
And baby I feel tossed
All the things that I gave up
All the things that I missed

I draw a breath and I cry
Because I was born

For you - my arms to hold you tight
To love you every night
Every night
For you - I could sail across the sky
Swim an ocean baby
I was born for you...

I was born for you...

Go play your games
Go off with someone else
Tell her the things that you told me
Just hope and pray that I find myself
And when you come running back
You won't find me waiting for you...
Will not, will not find me waiting...

For you - my arms won't hold you tight
I won't love you every night
Every night
For you - I won't sail across the sky
Swim an ocean
I will not cry for you...

I will not cry,
I will not cry for you...
