lyrics

“Birmingham”
© 2010 C. Rose


on the road to Birmingham you held my hand
telling me that we were more than friends
questioning the truth about my innocence
the night was black and cold but you were warm.

something in the darkness of that lonesome car
a kiss I think we finally understood
a dream I thought that I had learned to live without
but that was long ago, so long ago.
_____

pray these roads never take us home
for the stars to burn until we’re far away from all we know
may this night never break for dawn
we have come too far to surrender our tomorrow.
_____

all the way to Birmingham you held my hand
telling me that we were more than friends
testing every truth about our innocence
the night was black and cold but you were warm.
_____

pray these roads never take us home
for the stars to burn until we’re far away from all we known
may this night never break for dawn
we have come too far to surrender our tomorrow.
_____

near Birmingham you held my hand and turned away
the car was fast, the alcohol was slow
and the words intoxicated finally came
without the insecurity of shame.
_____

pray these roads never take us home
for the stars to burn until we’re far away from all we know
may this night never break for dawn
we have come too far to surrender our tomorrow
we have come too far
