Ron Pope If You Were A Stone Lyrics

Last updated: 05/22/2012 11:00:00 AM

If you were a stone then I'd be the rain
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
If you were a tree then I'd be the earth
Clutching your roots as you reach skyward

I am a metaphor for all the things I couldn't say
It's never easy
Then it hurts
Like scratching diamonds I have tried to find my way to you
But we're both moving in reverse

I wish that we could both find a simple way just to make it by
Right now I'm alright if you're just fine

But if you were a stone then I'd be the rain
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
If you were a tree then I'd be the earth
Clutching your roots as you reach skyward

Some nights you're a photograph fading in my memory
Some days I feel you on my skin
We're trading silence
There are words that seem to steal our breath
And I just dream about your lips

And I wish that we could both find a simple way just to make it by
Right now I'm alright if you're just fine

But if you were a stone then I'd be the rain
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
If you were a tree then I'd be the earth
Clutching your roots as you reach skyward

We'd count the stars
My hands in your leaves
And I'd hold my breath 'til we both fell asleep

If you were a stone then I'd be the rain,
Turn you to sand as the time slips away

I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for you

I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for you

If you were a stone then I'd be the rain
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
If you were a tree then I'd be the earth
Clutching your roots as you reach skyward

If you were a stone then I'd be the rain,
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
