08. Never Be Ready

City Of Black & White
by Mat Kearney



 

we got our feet on the wire
talking íbout flying
maybe weíre diving in over our heads
scared of what iím feeling
staring at the celing
here tonight

come on and lay down these arms
all our best defenses
weíre taking our chances here on the run
if fear is an anchor
then time is a stranger
love isnít borrowed
we arenít promised tomorrow

weíll never be ready
if we keep waiting
for the perfect time to come
hold me steady
weíll never be ready
oh oh oh oh oh
when we donít know, though we canít see
just walk on down this road with me
hold me steady
weíll never be ready

youíre ok here with me
here in the silence
with all of the violence
crashing around
saying we canít go
saying we donít know
this road that is narrow
is the one we should follow

steady my hands this one could turn around
steady my heart itís beating faster
steady my hands this one could turn around
steady my heart itís beating faster, beating faster now

hold me steady weíll never be ready
