Ten Paces
Inches From the Ground
by Rockwell Church
lay me down god rest your soul
clasp your hands right round my throat
and choke me, choke me
i don't want to breath no more
oh the air is deadly

years ago i might never have known
but time had made me wary
you have wronged me, wronged me
but i've been wrong before
oh it leaves me breathless

it's not hard to compare
don't need to throw
your hands up in the air yeah
you're so seriously, seriously amused
i've said this sort of thing before
i don't need to bring you
roses to show you
that i'm gonna take you there...

but maybe i could listen if you'd just
lend me your ear
but your staring out the window
and pretending i'm not here
is it something i said, something i said
was it something i said, something i said
yeah

ten more paces then we draw
i wonder what's the color of your soul
mine's gonna be black and blue
hope i stay below the lines

turn me around and take my pen
if it's stronger than the sword then
why can't i slay your heart a cherry red
oh i like you shaded

it's not hard to compare
don't need to throw your hands
up in the air yeah
you're so seriously, seriously amused
i've said this sort of thing before
i don't need to bring you
roses to show you
that i'm gonna take you there

but maybe i could listen if you'd just
lend me your ear
but your staring out the window
and pretending i'm not here
is it something i said, something i said
was it something i said, something i said
yeah

i don't need to bring you
i don't need to bring you roses to show you
i'm gonna take you there
