lyrics

FOR YOU

What is it - you wanted to be saved?
Has anyone come close?
If salvation’s what you’re after, then I’m game
I’m stronger now than most
But don’t ask my friends
Well, I’m certain they won’t tell you
The depths of my amends, oh yeah
And the things that I would do for you

I would trade fire with the devil for you

And there’s a war that I’ve been waging
And in the madness there is truth
Oh, I’m a solider in this battle that is raging
And my love for you is proof
And I won’t give up
‘Til the victory is offered
I’m a fighter ‘til I drop
And there’s nothing I would not do

I would trade fire with the devil for you
And I would lay angels down to waste
And for you
I would walk wires of devotion
Brave oceans through the wildest storm
Dream this ‘til the dream has come true

I would climb mountains
Face danger
Save saviours
Take measures
Break records
Make changes
Help strangers
Run miles
Fly higher
Run rivers
Eat liver
For you

All this for a moment with you

about

The Sad Truth San Francisco, California

If you wish they still made albums like they did in the 1970s, you're gonna love the Sad Truth - a wry and tuneful mashup of Steely Dan, ELO, Supertramp, and every other band you love from Back In The Day.
