Erin's Birthday Song

lyrics

You see the light?
it wasn’t always that
dark in here, the only game in town
the story goes, "the damsel in distress”
when sometimes it’s the other way around
I was a selfish piece
not much more to my name than
the wind that you knocked out of me
i found reprieve, just kind of stared at you a while

she dismantles me
so overwhelmingly
and I’ve built out of sound
habit of you around
I’m yours for taking

when I was young
I used to dream of you
years before I ever saw your face
and there were songs about you even though
I didn’t know the letters in your name
you make me nervous like
you did when I met you
it’s only a cold look away
but don’t look away
I would’t handle it that well

she dismantles me
so overwhelmingly
and I’ve built out of sound
habit of you around
I’m yours for taking

I was a selfish piece
not much more to my name than
the wind that you knocked out of me

she dismantles me
so overwhelmingly
and I’ve built out of sound
this new addiction
she dismantles me
she moves I cannot speak
and I’ve built out of sound
habit of you around
I’m yours for taking
