(Words & Music by Dennis Warner / From the Dennis Warner CD “Live! Volume 2”
How did I drift this far Who cut the rope that anchored me?
Like peaches in a mason jar I'd been preserving my heart from love
These walls, they must come down You made it clear right from the start
Little pieces would fall to the ground You took your own sweet time
You took your own sweet time....
CHORUS Old friend
Runnin' up the shore and back again
On calm seas or against the wind
If I'm in trouble, you jump on in (You've been there thru the thick and thin)
You tried to play your hand Intuition troubled me
I drew my lines deep in the sand And buried my soul from you
I said, "Please, please, walk away" "I'm confused when you're around"
But knew the truth in what you'd say Could save me from myself
You saved me from myself...
BRIDGE: My boat was not that strong
To carry more than my own load
You asked if you could ride along
You travel light
Won't bring me down...
These scars run deep inside Reminding me I survived
Secrets I could not hide You wanted to know them all
Now you know them all...
