about

Original song "Put To Rest" off of my acoustic EP featuring Kirsten Maxwell.

lyrics

I don't need your love
No I don't need your love
I say to me but my body disagrees
It knows when I lie
It knows how much I'm needing you

But I don't need your love
No I don't need your love
To step into the sun,
Drown in the light
Forget who I was, 'cause I love who I am
And I love what we were
And I wish you did too

Chorus:
I wanted it all
I changed my old ways
I reshaped myself I guess I was too late
I saw in my mind
Years down the line
We'd still be together and all would be fine
I wanted it all
I still want you baby
I hate that we lie just to bury the pain
So I guess if you say it's best we'll put us to rest

But I don't need this love
No I don't need this love
I drill into my head
Forcing these words which won't sink in
'Cause it's not how I feel
How can I pretend?
I'm a writer not an actor baby

Chorus
I wanted it all
I changed my old ways
I reshaped myself I guess I was too late
I saw in my mind
Years down the line
We'd still be together and all would be fine
I wanted it all
I still want you baby
I hate that we lie just to bury the pain
So I guess if you say it's best we'll put us to rest

Every time I take the LIE the thoughts of you and me come rushing on in
Ohhhh
My shoulder he is lonely only looking for a head to hold up while this train is speeding
Ohhh
I hate to say that I would wait, but I would wait to see you again

Chorus
I wanted it all
I changed my old ways
I reshaped myself I guess I was too late
I saw in my mind
Years down the line
We'd still be together and all would be fine
I wanted it all
I still want you baby
I hate that we lie just to bury the pain
So I guess if you say it's best I'll put us to rest
