Ron Pope - If You Were A Stone

rate me

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

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
