Benjamin Francis Leftwich Hole In My Hand

There is nothing we could say or do

To stop the world from tearing us in two

From your heart where I drew a line

Through the water and down your spine

I blew a hole in my hand to see you

I drew a line through the sand to be with you

Can you hear me call your name?

In the winter it didn’t sound the same

When my gun jams, my heart stops again

And I close my eyes and see you

I blew a hole in my hand to see you

I drew a line through the sand to be with you

I blew a hole in my hand to see you

I drew a line through the sand to be with you

I wanna come home

And I wanna come soon

I wanna come out

And I want it to be with you

I wanna come home

And I wanna come soon

I wanna come out

And I want it to be with you

I wanna come home

And I wanna come soon

I wanna come out

And I want it to be with you

I wanna come home

And I wanna come soon

I wanna come out

And I want it to be with you

I wanna come home

And I wanna come soon

I wanna come out

And I want it to be with you

I blew a hole in my hand to see you

I drew a line through the sand to be with you

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Immortal

One step forward and two steps back

I get love and I throw it back

Make my peace with the moon as the party ends

One step forward and two steps back

That blue sky just fades to black

Can not see why I needed to know

I am so ready for you ya know

It is true, it is true

I’ve been warmer when I’m dreaming of you

When I’m dreaming

I would make heaven for you ya know

It is true, it is true

I have been warmer when I’m waiting for you

When I’m waiting

[?]

I am so ready for you ya know

It is true, it is true

I’ve been warmer when I’m dreaming of you

When I’m dreaming

I would make heaven for you ya know

It is true, it is true

I have been warmer when I’m waiting for you

When I’m waiting

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Don’t Go Slow

Don’t go slow

You’ll miss all the things that you need

Your love and heat

Runs from your head to your feet

I saw you first

In the car on the way to the lake

I kept you there

If my bones were wrapped around you

My skin was right in front of you

Would you smile and close your eyes?

I’m yours tonight

If you stay

I promise to keep it alight

For all these days

When you fell

Like a feather from out of a plane

You’ve got time.

If my bones were wrapped around you

If my skin was right in front of you

Would you smile and close your eyes?

I’m yours tonight

If my bones were wrapped around you

If my skin was right in front of you

Would you smile and close your eyes?

I’m yours tonight

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Break The Day Open

When I said I wanted to see ya

I only ever wanna talk

I only ever wanted to tell ya

To walk the walk

When I said I wanted to be there

I only ever wanted to say

Why don’t you come dancing?

Everywhere we go

From the summer to the snow

We will pave the way

And break the day open

Everything we did

I know we made mistakes

We were kids

But now we could be woke up

When I said I wanted to meet you

At an airport in December

I only ever wanted to hope

When I said I wanted

To walk with you

Down the old road

I only ever wanted to let go

Everywhere we go

From the summer to the snow

We will pave the way

Break the day open

Everything we did

I know we made mistakes

We were kids

Now we could be woke up

And I could stand on a goldmine

That runs from your eyes

And I can see down the whole line

And stayed with you tonight

Everywhere we go

From the summer to the snow

We will pave the way

Break the day open

Everything we did

I know we made mistakes

We were kids

And now we could be woke up

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Just Breathe

Stay, I could be your hiding place

Together we’ll weather the storm

If you stay, I could be a fall from grace

When the heavens, say we’ll never belong

Any time you’re losing touch

Just breathe, I’ll catch you on the way down

We can turn around, the weight of the sky on top of us

Just breathe, I won’t let you fade out

We can turn around, the weight of the sky on top of us

Just breathe

Stay, tell me that it’s not too late

To recover, to get over life before

Nothing’s changed, every time your body breaks

I’ll come running, so you never have to fall

Any time you’re losing touch

Just breathe, I’ll catch you on the way down

We can turn around, the weight of the sky on top of us

Just breathe, I won’t let you fade out

We can turn around, the weight of the sky on top of us

Just breathe, just breathe, just breathe

Just breathe, I’ll catch you on the way down

We can turn around, the weight of the sky on top of us

Just breathe, I won’t let you fade out

We can turn around, the weight of the sky on top of us

Just breathe

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Pure Morning

A friend in need’s a friend indeed

A friend with weed is better

A friend with breasts and all the rest

A friend who’s dressed in leather

A friend in need’s a friend indeed

A friend who’ll tease is better

Our thoughts compressed, which makes us blessed

And makes for stormy weather

A friend in need’s a friend indeed

My Japanese is better

And when she’s pressed she will undress

And then she’s boxing clever

A friend in need’s a friend indeed

A friend who bleeds is better

My friend confessed she passed the test

And we will never sever

Day’s dawning, skin’s crawling

Day’s dawning, pure morning

A friend in need’s a friend indeed

A friend who’ll tease’s better

Our thoughts compressed, which makes us blessed

And makes for stormy weather

A friend in need’s a friend indeed

A friend who bleeds is better

My friend confessed she passed the test

And we will never sever

Day’s dawning, skin’s crawling

Day’s dawning, pure morning

Day’s dawning, skin’s crawling

Pure morning, pure morning

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Shine

I could live in a different place

With a different house and a different name

I could sing you your favourite song

Yeah, you’d sing along, you’d sing along

I could wrap you in your favourite clothes

And kiss your face just so you know

That I’m the one who has got your back

Now turn around and don’t be sad

I hope you find the love that’s true

So the morning light can shine on you

I hope you find what you’re looking for

So your heart is warm for ever more

I could fly you away with me

To the furthest place you’ll ever be

We could smoke ’til the sun goes down

And without a sound, without a sound

We’d fall asleep by the big blue sea

With open eyes so we could see

The way it shines for you and I

You know it’ll shine until we fly

I hope you find the love that’s true

So the morning light can shine on you

I hope you find what you’re looking for

So your heart is warm for ever more

I could wait with you by the water

I could wait with you for the winter to come

I could stand with you with your snow boots on

I hope you find the love that’s true

So the morning light can shine on you

I hope you find what you’re looking for

So your heart is warm for ever more

I hope you find what you’re looking for

So your heart is warm for ever more

Benjamin Francis Leftwich See You Soon

When you were young

You lost on everyone

Then you closed your eyes

And said your goodbyes

In a year

Or ten, I will be there

I will come for you

When you are on your own

On a chair

In a room with no one there

I will touch your hand

And say I understand

What we lost

Was equal to the cost

Of my skin on yours

And say you want it back

If you get time

Come back and be mine

If you pass by

I will see you in the sky

I hope that you’re told

I was young, now I’m old

If you pass by

I will see you in the sky

Now in the dark,

You’re a light without a spark

In a car you drive back home

To see your friends

While you say

That everytime you pay

You were broke because

Your love has got away

You’re the one

That fires off your gun

Then catches all the fire

When you’re done

Are you sure

That you have won this war?

‘Cause I heard you say

That this is our day

If you get time

Come back and be mine

If you pass by

I will see you in the sky

I hope that you’re told

I was young, now I’m old

If you pass by

I will see you in the sky

I’ll see you soon

I’ll see you soon

I’ll see you soon

You know

If you get time

Come back and be mine

If you pass by

I will see you in the sky

Benjamin Francis Leftwich Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm

This is just the start

You’ve got a cold heart

Don’t you wanna spend

more time ’round here?

I ran out through the garden

Ended up by your home

With broken arms and stolen charms

I knew you weren’t alone

Don’t you love me, yeah?

Don’t you wanna be my sky?

If you trust me, yeah

We won’t ever have to fight

We are not departed

From the place in which we started

We just got up on the bridge

So we could see it glow

The things that we have left in

The cities which we’ve slept in

The coming of the winter on the fields

Don’t you love me, yeah?

Don’t you wanna be my sky?

If you trust me, yeah

We won’t ever have to fight

This is just the start

You’ve got a cold heart,

Don’t you wanna spend

More time ’round here?
