08. What's Stopping You

You Were Never Alone
by Emery



 

I wanted to sit out of this one but my God youíre so convincing
I said I would and I meant Iíd try but with a wealth of doubts came a mouth full of lies
(I said that I would, and I meant every word but it took the ending)
I sank my teeth in the kingdom come and spit out my years and held back my tongue
(And all that I heard, from the foot of my bed this was just the beginning)

Make this your business what I am about to say
The last touch between us took this all the way.

Donít believe for once that I could let this go away
Itís right behind, these eyes of mine even if I stay

And I wanted to fix this like you fixed my name to this

I said I would and I meant Iíd try but with a wealth of doubts came a mouth full of lies
I sank my teeth in the kingdom come and spit out my years pulled back my tongue

Forget the wasted time we've made it
The stars are out just in time to see.
The dark retreating and shadows fleeting
We found the ground beneath our feet.
Whatís stopping you (Whatís stopping you)
Whatís stopping you donít let this in
Whatís stopping you (Whatís stopping you)
Whatís stopping you canít stop all of this

These clumsy arms canít be the first
Distance your regrets is what Iíve heard

You sit there with a pardon like a present
Oh my soul
Those words I guess Iím never gonna be alone
But Iím on my own

Donít believe for once that I would let this go away

Forget the wasted time we've made it
(I knew it right away)
The stars are out just in time to see.
(This would break all of their hearts)
The dark retreating and shadows fleeting
(I couldnít stay away)
We found the ground beneath our feet.
(A good person always plays their part)
Whatís stopping you (Whatís stopping you)
Whatís stopping you donít let this in
Whatís stopping you (Whatís stopping you)
Whatís stopping you canít stop all of this

Always wanted to say that I would be the first.
From the ground to the table I planned and rehearsed
To be there at the moment to capture my name,
But itís yours and not mine and itís yours that he made

Lift up your hands itís surrender or praise
So you burn all your plans for the words you believed
The nails you learned to drive between
The wood and earth that made you see
That simple men of simple means
Can hold the heavens in their hands

Second place I find here
(Iíve always known my part)
The upper case is yours not mine
(But I would love to see this through)
Teach these hands to have fear
(Could we go back to the start)
Orchestrate my words and lines.
(When it was just me and you)

But I never said I wanted any of this, I never said no
