Mason Jennings Mark My Heart With Ashes Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2012 11:00:00 AM

Every morning when I'm waking up
I keep hoping that you're breaking up

I want you to be mine
I want you to be mine
I want you to be my girl

If I told you that I need you
Would you mock me? Would it matter?
If I sang you songs of heaven?
Would you let me see your wings?
If I drew it with my finger on your foggy rainy window
Would you mark my heart with ashes?
Would you press your windswept body to my shore?

Looking at your eyes is like falling through the trees
The earth above your knees
The sun it shines within me when I'm with you

Lone sailor, body found washed out to sea
I'm lying in your arms, sun shining down on me
Sun shining down on the rail yard
Hot pitch melting in the sun

I never was a boy
I never was a man
All I ever was was yours
I never was a lover, baby
I never was a friend
All I ever was was yours

From the first time that I saw you, baby
From the first time that I saw you, baby
From the first time that I saw you, I adored you

And I knew
I never was an answer, no
I never was a question, though
I never was nothing but yours

And I want you to be mine
I want you to be mine
I want you to be mine
I want you to be my girl
