Rather Be

Verse 1
We’re a thousand miles from comfort,
We have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me,
There’s no place I rather be
I would wait forever,
Exulted in the scene
As long as I am with you,
My heart continues to beat

Pre chorus 1
With every step we take,
Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually
We’re different and the same,
Gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

Chorus 1
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be, oh oh

Verse 2
We staked out on a mission
To find our inner peace
Make it everlasting
So nothing’s incomplete
It’s easy being with you,
Sacred simplicity
As long as we’re together,
There’s no place I’d rather be

Pre chorus 2
With every step we take,
Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually
We’re different and the same,
Gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

Chorus 2
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be

When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
Be, oh
Bridge
Be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Chorus 4
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be

Cold ending.

Supermarket Flowers

I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill
I threw the day old tea from the cup
Packed up the photo album Matthew had made
Memories of a life that’s been loved
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
Dad always told me, “don’t you cry when you’re down”
But mum, there’s a tear every time that I blink

Oh I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up, but I know
A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved

So I’ll sing Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you’d be there holding me up
Spread your wings as you go
And when God takes you back we’ll say Hallelujah
You’re home

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
John says he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek
And wiped a tear from the side of my face

I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know
A life with love is a life that’s been lived

So I’ll sing Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you’d be there holding me up
Spread your wings as you go
And when God takes you back we’ll say Hallelujah
You’re home

Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
You got to see the person that I have become
Spread your wing
And I know that when God took you back he said Hallelujah
You’re home
