lyrics

I’ve heard you’re risky like smoking cigarettes
like taking a quick pull into my lungs
but I know too many like billows from my lips
that disappear before my second breath

but I’ve heard you’re steady like a marksman in the night
with cold and ready sights upon my heart
I don’t know if I’m ready to sever and disarm
every single right I have to death

like a sheriff longs for daylight
my heart has longed for home
My reservations can’t withstand Your tender voice’s tone

heights I’ve never seen
have been placed beneath my feet
as I jump I see that the fall is where we’ll meet
I’ve come to believe looking back gives no certainty
All I guarantee is your heart is turned toward me

I thought you’re risky
like smoking cigarettes
until I realized You cost far more
