I’ll Be

After I’ll Be by Edwin McCain

 

The depths of Your eyes that reveal a love so true

Stop me and steal my breath.

From the peak of the mountain, the valley is wide

But I’m no longer afraid of death.

Tell me that we will merge together,

Dress it up with the trappings of love.

I’ll be captivated,

I’ll hang from Your glances,

Instead of the gallows of heartache the world is made of.

 

I’ll be Your candle holder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be there to behold Ya

I’ll be giving You my hand and my life.

 

With the angry pain desire produced

My heart and my body have bled.

Now You’re my survival, You’re my living proof

My love is alive and not dead.

Tell me that we will merge together,

Dress it up with the trappings of love.

I’ll be captivated,

I’ll hang from Your glances,

Instead of the gallows of heartache the world is made of.

 

I’ll be Your candle holder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be there to behold Ya

I’ll be giving You my hand and my life.

 

Oh, I’ve dropped out, I’ve burned up, I’ve fought my way past what I dread.

I’ve tuned in, and turned on, remembering the things You never said.

 

I’ll be Your candle holder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be there to behold Ya

I’ll be giving You my hand and my …

I’ll be Your candle holder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be there to behold Ya

I’ll be giving You my hand and my life.

 

Giving You my hand and my life,

My hand and my life.
