David Gray – If 8 Were 9 lyrics
[Verse 1]
If skin should touch and words evaporate
Trouble clear out of sight with my whole body listening
My heart leans out like these old river trees
Closer to be where you glide, moving under me, glistening

[Chorus]
If 8 were 9, I would hold you
Yeah, I would rock you
I would shelter you, darling
If 8 were 9, I would lift you
Lift you clear off the ground
Through the gates into morning

[Verse 2]
The time would stretch
Stretch out these magic hours
Into days, into years
Tomorrow lost in the distance
A voice speaks out
Says, "Hey man, let it go"
But when a heart has been true
Well, it don't make any difference

[Chorus]
If 8 were 9, I would hold you
I would rock you
I would shelter you, darling
If 8 were 9, I would lift you
Lift you clear off the ground
Through the gates into morning
If 8 were 9
If 8 were 9
If 8 were 9
If 8 were 9
Through the gates into morning, yeah

[Outro]
Yeah, through the gates into morning
