Vow

I pressed the black ink down onto the page
old words from a pen of such a young age
but they were written for you on our wedding day
and spoken for all to hear
I stood before myself in a three-piece suit
trying to look like the guy who should be with you
but I ran into some problems, I found quite a few
I spent some time looking in the mirror

cuz I know I'll never be the man you want
but I hope that you can love me while I try
cuz even though no doubt without me you'd be fine
if you didn't have ribs to hold your heart I'd give you mine

The weather's been rough, but the work's been good
there's been bad overlaid that we've understood
and I've done you wrong like you knew I would
you've shown your love the most
Do you remember that night when the storm came through
it shook the house and it shook me too
I cannot believe I did that to you
I thought I'd lost us both

cuz I know I'll never be the man you want
but I hope that you can love me while I try
cuz even though no doubt without me you'd be fine
if you didn't have eyes to see your worth I'd give you mine

So, Marcus stole threads of Folk, Country, Blues, and Rock, spun a sleeping bag, and skipped town. Please contact local authorities if you've seen him. ... more
