If I Give You An Inch

Written By: Ron Smith

I've played with fate enough to know I'll never win
I've prayed my life away to gods who live in sin
Stranger's shadows hide within a blinking light
Jumping, clawing, scratching,
all just out of sight

But I just think, I just know, I just dream
about you smiling there
pulling all the stitches binding me

If I give you an inch will you take a mile?
I can't help it, I gotta know,
If I give you an inch will you take a mile?

Just like everybody else, I've had it hard
A million tounges have cut me, now I show the scars
I've given little and I, I've given all
I've scurried on all fours,
I've tried to stand up tall

But I'd risk losing years, losing everything
just to see you here
reaching through the cage I've made for me

If I give you an inch will you take a mile?
I can't help it, I gotta know,
If I give you an inch will it make you smile?
It's so hard to make you smile
If I give you an inch will you act like a child?
I can't take it, I gotta know
If I give you an inch will you take a mile?

I Breath it in, breath it out
Burning air I thrash about
I fall into a dance
The drums persist, the sweat drips
Why don't you save me?

Spinning circles, dizzy heights
Will you push me off this solid wall
that I've built so thick?
If I give you just a little more
will you pull apart this fortress brick by brick?

If I give you an inch will you take a mile?
I can't help it, I gotta know,
If I give you an inch will it make you smile?
It's so hard to make you smile
If I give you an inch will you act like a child?
I can't take it, I gotta know
If I give you an inch will you take a mile?

I can't help it, I want to know
I can't take it, I got to know

If I Asked For Your Hand

Written By: Ron Smith

(kids voices- Will you marry me? Laugh.)

If I asked for your hand
would you marry me again
or walk away,
if I asked for your hand?

If I asked what you dream
would you dream of holding me
in your arms,
If I asked what you dream

Oh and tell me,
do you think of me like I,
like I think of you?
Oh and tell me,
would you light my way
or is the light on, oh is the light on
for someone new?

If I asked what you've seen
would you tell me all the truth
or would you lie
If I asked what you've seen?

If I told you how you feel
would you listen to my cries
or my heart
If I told you how you feel?

Oh and tell me,
do you think of me like I,
like I think of you?
Oh and tell me,
would you light my way
or is the light on, oh is the light on
for someone new?

Break:

If I asked how you feel
would you tell me love is real
or was never there
If I asked how you feel?

If I gave you one more chance
would you change our circumstance,
would we dance
If I gave you one more chance?

Oh and tell me,
do you think of me like I,
like I think of you?
Oh and tell me,
would you light my way
or is the light on for someone new?
