about

I just felt like writing a country singer songwriter tune

lyrics

Chorus
Do you want me to stay
Do you want me to go
Do you want me here right here with you,
Or somewhere down the road.
Do you want me to laugh
Do you want me to cry
Do you want me to lay down at your feet
Do you want me to die.
Verse
I thought that I was independent
I thought I was immune to the call
Of the blood that flows in another's veins,
I thought that I would never fall.
I was good with the old arrangement
I thought that I had a need for control.
I was secure in the isolation
Of a psychopathic soul

Do you want me to stay
Do you want me to go
Do you want me here right here with you,
Or somewhere down the road.
Do you want me to laugh
Do you want me to cry
Do you want me to lay down at your feet
Do you want me to die.

I was lost in the contemplation
Of the ways I was losing my soul
I was blind to the cost , but I took no heed
But it was taking its toll.
I can say with no hesitation
That I was alright with the way
I could stumble through my life
Like a hopeless drunk.
I thought that I'd never pay.

Do you want me to stay
Do you want me to go
Do you want me here right here with you,
Or somewhere down the road.
Do you want me to laugh
Do you want me to cry
Do you want me to lay down at your feet
Do you want me to die.

Now, I'm coming out of hibernation,
The ice is beginning to thaw.
The fire in the blood is beginning to burn,
Like a flame in the straw.
I put it down to the inspiration,
Of the one who is pulling me out
Of the darkness in the pit that I made for myself,
When I was ready to quit.

Do you want me to stay
Do you want me to go
Do you want me here right here with you,
Or somewhere down the road.
Do you want me to laugh
Do you want me to cry
Do you want me to lay down at your feet
Do you want me to die.
