lifeblood: songs: lyrics: rodeo


she comes down to georgia
to dance across my kitchen floor leavin'
black marks on linoleum and
a country song on the radio
and i am just a rodeo calf
with tender feet and sewn on horns and
love is a kindness
that i've never known before
i've never known before

she say's i'm bound to carolina
to join the kids in truth or dare and she
laughs and says its just a game
when i tell her that i'm scared
cause i am just a dog
waitin' at the kitchen door
and love is a kindness
that i've never known before
i've never known before

make it last
make it stay
can you hold on long enough
just to make it pay
just to make it pay

and she says my daddy was a grifter and
i was in my momma's way and so i
drifted for a while cause i
could not stand to stay
she says love is a kindness
that i have never understood
and i said i'll give it to you willingly cause its
something you deserve
its something you deserve

and i'll make it last
and i'll make it stay
if you can hold on long enough
i can make this pay
cause i am just a calf
with tender feet and sewn on horns and
love is a prize
waitin' on her at the rodeo
