"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Mat Kearney - All I Need

Here it comes.. it’s all blowing in tonight.
I woke up this morning to a blood red sky.
They’re burning on the bridge, they’re turning off the lights..
We’re on the run, I can see it in your eyes.

If nothing is safe, then I don’t understand..
You call me a boy but I’m trying to be the man.
One more day and it’s all slipping with the sand..
You touch my lips and grab the back of my hand.. the back of my hand.

Guess we both know we’re in over our heads..
we’ve got nowhere to go and no home that’s left.
The water is rising on a river turning red..
it all might be okay or we might be dead.

If everything we’ve got is slipping away,
I meant what I said when I said until my dying day.
I’m holding on to you, holding on to me..
Maybe it’s all gone black, but you’re all I see.. you’re all I see.

Walls are shaking.. I hear them sound the alarm.
Glass is breaking, so don’t let go of my arm.
Grab your bags and a picture of where we met..
all that we’ll leave behind and all that’s left..

If everything we’ve got is blowing away,
we’ve got a rock, and a rock till our dying day.
I’m holding on to you, holding on to me
Maybe it’s all we got, but it’s all I need.
You’re all I need.

And if all we’ve got is what no one can break, I know I love you,
if that’s all we can take.
The tears are coming down.. they’re mixing with the rain..
I know I love you, if that’s all we can take.

A pool is running for miles on the concrete ground..
we’re eight feet deep and the rain is still coming down.
The TV’s playing it all out of town..
I’m grabbing at the fray for something that won’t drown.
