Joe Henry – Flesh And Blood lyrics

Aaaah come sit beside me
That'll do for now

The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow

Come speak my name
Fill my head with oh such foolish dreams

My flesh and blood
Is no more real to me
Than what it seems

My love for you is burning
Like a sparkle on a fuse

I feel your mark upon me now
As surely as the hand that leaves the bruise

Life is for the living
And life comes hard for some
The rest of us were flesh and blood
Make it hard all on our own

All I ever wanted
Was the freedom to refuse
Or something of my own to love enough
To hate to lose

The fever in my brain
Is leaving smoke behind my eyes
When the part of me that wants to change
Fights the part of me that tries

Come see the gold light
Cause I turned the gold light on.

Sometimes God knows
You've got to learn to shine shine shine shine all on your own

I I I I I stepped out of darkness
And for a moment
I'm only living by your kiss your kiss your kiss your kiss your lips your kiss
Your kiss
And now, just for now our flesh and blood's more real than this

More real than this (X2)

More more more more more more more more more more more more real than this

Flesh and blood is more real than this

More real than this (X2)

Flesh and blood (X2)

More real than this

More real

More real than this
