Lyrics

Just Breathe

Written By: Andrew Hanna

I turned and walked away from her.
I left a note it said it’s done I’m leaving today.
I lost a piece of me along the winding road.
I said goodbye but I just want you baby don’t cry.

Just breathe everything will be okay.
Breathe I’ll be coming by today.
Breathe what I said is far from true.
Breathe all I want is to have you.

Her tears poured down on the pillow.
I wanted to hold her close, my arms were frozen.
The air tightened around my chest I had to run.
I said goodbye but I just want you baby don’t cry.

Just breathe everything will be okay.
Breathe I’ll be coming by today.
Breathe what I said is far from true.
Breathe all I want is to have you.

I could never give you away.
I could never give you away.
I could never be without you.
I could never let you get away from me.

Just breathe everything will be okay.
Breathe I’ll be coming by today.
Breathe what I said is far from true.
Breathe all I want is to have you.

Just breathe everything will be okay.
Just breathe I’ll be coming by today.
Just breathe what I said is far from true.
Just breathe all I want is to have you.

A Lullaby

Written By: Andrew Hanna

Joanne I’ll see you when the summer light fades.
When you called I could tell you had a bad day.
I’ll paint over the grey clouds that covered you in rain,
And dry your pretty face.

If you like I’ll sing you a lullaby,
And make you feel warm in your bed.
I’ll sit at your side and sing softly,
And kiss you on the cheek,
Before you fall asleep,
Oh for you I’ll sing a lullaby.

I can’t help but laugh, she’s buried in her bed.
Two eyes peak out when I rub her head.
Joanne I’ll relax you like a warm summer’s breeze,
The way my mom did for me.

If you like I’ll sing you a lullaby,
And make you feel warm in your bed.
I’ll sit at your side and sing softly,
And kiss you on the cheek,
Before you fall asleep,
Oh for you I’ll sing a lullaby.

I’ll tuck you in and tell you a bedtime story.
I’ll turn down the lights so it looks like the sun is still setting.
Baby I’ll keep you safe from what hides in the dark.
Oh I could sing for you, oh I could sing for you until you fall asleep.

If you like I’ll sing you a lullaby,
And make you feel warm in your bed.
I’ll sit at your side and sing softly,
And kiss you on the cheek,
Before you fall asleep,
Oh for you I’ll sing a lullaby.
Oh for you I’ll sing a lullaby.

These Words

Written By: Andrew Hanna

Darling we might cross different seas,
Hidden in shadows I’ll see your sunlight.
When storms arise I’ll run to your side.
I’ll keep you close wherever I go,
And pull you near whenever you need me.
I’ll stay with you till the end of the road.
These words are true.
These words are just for you.

Darling there’ll be bumps and unclear signs.
Blinding lights might blur our map.
When you get lost I’ll guide you home.
I’ll keep you close wherever I go,
And pull you near whenever you need me,
I’ll stay with you till the end of the road.
These words are true.
These words are just for you.

You are my guiding light when I loose sight of the shore when the fog rolls in.
I’ve looked into a crystal ball, I can see you smile, the rest is unclear baby the rest is unclear.
I wish this summer would never end, maybe autumn will sleep in, then things will never change.
Wherever the wind takes us too, just remember my words to you, oh they’re true, oh they’re true.

I’ll keep you close wherever I go,
And pull you near whenever you need me,
I’ll stay with you till the end of the road.
These words are true.
These words are just for you.
These words are true.
These words are just for you.
