lyrics

Choose me…choose me...

Never wrote a diver a poem
Never killed a candle in a poet’s home
Never let a digger retire
Never helped a builder learn the dirt’s a liar

Perfection, I’m giving you up
Selection, I’m begging you reward my trust

I’ve learned “truly” is a word that inspires
“Hardly” is a word that I have long retired
“Every” is a word that I plead
“Kindly” is a word that makes me doubt my deeds

Protection, I’m giving you up
Correction, I’m stating that I’m right enough
If it’s direction that’s holding me up
Confession will be the lesson that I trust

Because once in a generation
They make someone like me for the licked to follow

Choose me…choose me...

Never wrote a diver a poem
I was only 18 when I learned they’d follow
Never wrote a diver a poem
I was only 18 when I learned they’d follow

I’ll reach back for you
You’ll be sharing my glory
I’ll reach back for you
You’ll be sharing soon
Everything I’d never do
