Rook

Written By: Joe Letchworth

ROOK, by Joe Letchworth

Verse 1:
You considered life
To be a game,
And you always took the high ground
When the chances came.
You’re set apart
When you’re just standing.
I’m handing my heart to you.

Chorus:
I’ll be your fortress,
A tower of strength.
I’ll be your refuge.
Oh, I’ll be anything.
Pieces have fallen
From the table you shook.
I’m the only one standing.
Let me be your rook.

Verse 2:
In private and public
I’ll be your support.
‘Cause all that’s left in front of us
Are squares on a board.
Oh, I’m deep, I’m sincere,
But I’m not a machine,
But if a pawn can be a queen,
Then I’ll be anything in between.

CHORUS

Bridge:
A rook can only go straight,
So let me be straight with you.
I won’t end in stalemate,
Cause I have to see this through.
Oh, I'll be your fortress,
A tower of strength
I'll be your refuge . . .

Wave

Written By: Joe Letchworth

Verse 1:
My lips are bleeding.
My arms are needing
Someone to wrap around,
To wrap around.
It's been a rough day,
But I'll be okay
Walking to my car,
Walking to my car . . .

Chorus:
And then you waved at me,
And I knew everything would be
Alright, alright.
And then you waved at me,
And I knew everything would be
Alright, alright.

Verse 2:
Who knew five fingers
Could do so much
Without a touch,
Without a touch.
I didn't know her,
But she was always sober.
She was like a dream.
That's how it seemed . . . .

CHORUS

Bridge:
The way you look
Makes me sing
The way you smile
Takes away everything. 4x

CHORUS

Verse 3:
My heart is desperate.
I think I'll rest it for
Another day,
Another day.
You never see me,
But it's too easy
Living in my head.
My thoughts were dead . . .

CHORUS
