Shake – Lori Mckenna

Filed in Music, Video by on May 15, 2013 0 Comments

For those who keep asking WHY, WHY, WHY. For those who don’t understand WHY, WHY, WHY. I just never have been good at pretending so I have become #sunshine #shineonshineon! Thats okay with me, how about you?

We both know there’s only
so much a person can take
Only so far you can reach on
a so long you can carry that weight.
So some of us learn how to live
with what we know we can’t fix
So we walk all and act proud and pretend
that it’s better than it is.

Time does not WASTE itself,
A dream cannot WAKE itself,
The truth cannot DISGRACE itself,
An unwritten prayer cannot SAVE the lost soul.
Arms cannot EMBRACE themselves
A heart cannot BREAK itself
And I cannot SHAKE myself from YOU.

What I have done is to be free of YOU of every damn thing I allowed you to do to me. Of every damn thing you are capable of. You are toxic to ever damn thing you come into contact with. But you CAN’T touch me anymore.

“Shake”

(Verse)
Don’t leave me is all I hear you say,
Somehow it keeps me from all the plans that I’ve made.
Your promises sparkle, I tell myself not to believe
The things that I want lose out to the one that I need.

(Chorus)
Time does not waste itself,
A dream cannot wake itself,
The truth cannot disgrace itself,
An unwritten prayer cannot save the lost soul.
Arms cannot embrace themselves
A heart cannot break itself
And I cannot shake myself from you.

(Verse)
We both know there’s only so much a person can take
Only so far you can reach on a so long you can carry that weight.
So some of us learn how to live with what we know we can’t fix
So we walk all and act proud and pretend that it’s better than it is.

(Chorus)
Time does not waste itself,
A dream cannot wake itself,
The truth cannot disgrace itself,
An unwritten prayer cannot save the lost soul.
Arms cannot embrace themselves
A heart cannot break itself
And I cannot shake myself from you.

(Bridge)
Don’t leave me, it’s all I hear myself say
As you pursway me to throw the rest of my life away.
