Liner Notes: 

The talented @benjo sent me the lyrics! I did very minor tweaking but I'm happy with how it turned out. It's a fun challenge to put someone else's lyrics to music and just trust what comes out. Let do this again Smile

Lyrics: 

Why can't you take all of me
the pieces that I hold
are stars died out
so easily you lie to me
I’ll hang on every word
Until you let me fall

You have my heart
and have my soul
So take my mind
be in control
oh oh oh oh
it's lonely on your own
when there's no one there to love
it's lonely on your own

Only tears are left behind
Like morning dew left to dry
why don't you want everything
the parts you couldn’t see
why don't you want the rest of me?

You have my heart
and have my soul
So take my mind
be in control
oh oh oh oh
it's lonely on your own
when there's no one there to love
it's lonely on your own

birds will sing your praise
Beneath the painted sky
And the pouring rain
sweet whispers from the willow trees
that echo in my mind
I can’t leave your love behind

You have my heart
and have my soul
So take my mind
be in control
oh oh oh oh
it's lonely on your own
when there's no one there to love
it's lonely on your own
