Keep Me Lyrics

This can't really be what life is all about
Learning how to live just to live without
The travesty's the irony and the irony is you
I've traded in my sanctity for a cheaper
shade of blue

And as I surrender to this sunken bed
So afflicted by the tenant in my head
Even now, I wonder how you lay her down
to sleep
When secretly, I know it's my soul that you
pray to keep
But will you really keep me

(Keep me)
On your porch, or on your tongue
(Keep me)
Beating in your chest, or coming undone
(Keep me)
Folded neatly in the cover of your
favorite book
(Keep me)
At a distance, in your maze
Fumbling through a contemplative haze
Or tucked away clandestinely, where no one
else will look
Where my broken sky reaches to your
velvet sea
Will you keep me, will you keep me

Drowning in the bottom of this empty glass
I pray God is good and that this too shall
Then from the abyss, maybe i'll find a
sweet reprieve
When the echo of your kiss reminds
me to believe
That you'll always keep me

(Keep me)
Under God or on your wall
(Keep me)
Behind closed doors, forever after all
(Keep me)
Or headed south on the blacktop ribbon we
(Keep me)
On the mantel of integrity
(Keep me)
Investing in something I'll never see
(Keep me)
At thirty-thousand feet or in the windows of
your mind
In a corner of your heart under lock and key
Will you keep me, will you keep me

Traipsing on hallowed ground
Has brought a lifelong sentence
Now, living without your breath to fill my
Will be my penance
And even as I feel
I hope you feel it just as deeply
And even though you've let me go
Say you'll always keep me
Say you'll always keep me

The melody you misconstrue
On the ocean crashing into you
Or waiting for the man you'll never have the
heart to be
In the fervent strains of this tragic elegy

Will you keep me
Will you keep me
Oh, oh, will you keep me
Will you keep me
