I'd rather
by John McLaird


At least I own your reflection
It may not be perfection
but it's all that I have
I can survive until morning
Then maybe we could speak again
somehow erase the dark past
I know your burning with anger
I feel the radiation
the alienation pushing me back

I'd rather lay in your shadow
than be beside anyone else
I'd rather hear your echo
than listen to anyone else
I'd rather follow your footsteps
than walk with anyone else
I'd rather touch your picture
than hold onto anyone else

So I guess I'll sleep on the couch
So you can let it all out
and I can dwell on the past
I fear its got its momentum
We’ve burned the fuse of confusion
and can't put it out
I hope its not ending
Do we both need forgiving
or has that moment passed

I'd rather lay in your shadow
than be beside anyone else
I'd rather hear your echo
than listen to anyone else
I'd rather follow your footsteps
than walk with anyone else
I'd rather touch your picture
than hold onto anyone else

I hope we're not ending
Do we both need forgiving
or has the moment past
