  1. Because You Can

From the recording Surviving the Echoes

Lyrics

Baby, you worry too much
As if you had that much control
And you can be hard to touch
Now that the world has taken its toll And I know the road we’re on
Is not the road that you had planned
But it’s no good to be alone, dear
So you come here and take my hand

A younger me would be shocked by what I’m looking at
But, baby, I think I see where you went wrong
If the war has taught me anything it’s that life don’t go as planned
So, baby, kiss me just because you can

Baby, you always seem lost
But you’ve never had a map
And you like to count the cost
But that’s money you don’t have
Now, all of this means nothing
‘Cause it was never up to you
So when you’re broke down, beat, and busted There’s always one thing you can do

Baby, all you have to do is turn around
And what you need will be right in front of you
But know the thing you never touch will always be out of hand
So, baby, kiss me just because you can

Baby, you cling too tightly
To things you simply cannot hold While that which lies within your grasp
Well, baby, you just let it go
And you watch it float away
Then you wonder why it leaves
Well, quit looking at the sky
You look right into my eyes
Oh, baby, you just look at me

A younger me would be shocked by what I’m looking at
I lead with me best cards but life didn’t follow suit
When it all breaks down maybe all that’s left is to just strike up the band
But you should kiss me just because you can
