Lori McKenna – Shake lyrics
(Verse)
Don’t leave me is all I hear you say
Somehow it keeps me from all the plans that I’ve made
Your promises sparkle, I tell myself not to believe
The things that I want lose out to the one that I need

(Chorus)
Time does not waste itself
A dream cannot wake itself
The truth cannot disgrace itself
An unwritten prayer cannot save the lost soul
Arms cannot embrace themselves
A heart cannot break itself
And I cannot shake myself from you

(Verse)
We both know there’s only so much a person can take
Only so far you can reach on a so long you can carry that weight
So some of us learn how to live with what we know we can’t fix
So we walk all and act proud and pretend that it’s better than it is

(Chorus)
Time does not waste itself
A dream cannot wake itself
The truth cannot disgrace itself
An unwritten prayer cannot save the lost soul
Arms cannot embrace themselves
A heart cannot break itself
And I cannot shake myself from you

(Bridge)
Don’t leave me, it’s all I hear myself say
As you pursway me to throw the rest of my life away
