Hold You Tight

Out on the driveway shooting hoops in the rain
I got stuff to be doin’, but she’s on my mind again
I think to myself, it’s only been a day
That means she’s been twenty-four hours too long away

Lookin’ through the pictures, thinking of the past
Wonderin’ where it’ll go, and wonderin’ if it’ll last
Then the phone rings, I sit up in my chair
Oh, how I wish that it would be you there

I need you here so I can hold you tight
You could be my queen and I will be your knight
I’ll guard your castle, I’ll be so true
And if you’ll have me, I’ll be so good to you
I’ll wield sword and shield until our battles are won
And as night draws near, we’ll ride off into the sun
I’ll slay your dragons, I’ll fight so hard
You’d be safe behind my armor cause you’d be in my heart

Sorting through the memories, hoping through the pain
Bracing for the ton of bricks that just might be the end
Give us a chance, let fate have a try
I’d do anything to have you by my side

I need you here so I can hold you tight
You could be my queen and I will be your knight
I’ll guard your castle, I’ll be so true
And if you’ll have me, I’ll be so good to you
I’ll wield sword and shield until our battles are won
And as night draws near, we’ll ride off into the sun
I’ll slay your dragons, I’ll fight so hard
You’d be safe behind my armor cause you’d be in my heart

You see my shadow you turn around in surprise
I don’t say a word, I just talk to you with my eyes
Through thick or thin, through rain or shine
I’ll hold you close for the rest of my life

I need you here so I can hold you tight
You could be my queen and I will be your knight
I’ll guard your castle, I’ll be so true
And if you’ll have me, I’ll be so good to you
I’ll wield sword and shield until our battles are won
And as night draws near, we’ll ride off into the sun
I’ll slay your dragons, I’ll fight so hard
You’d be safe behind my armor cause you’d be in my heart

A little history:

This was the first song I ever wrote, in 2003.  It was written about my first true love.
