Song Description

Self Sacrifice bordering on self destruction; sacrificing oneself for a lover; addiction

Story Behind the Song

This was written about an ex-lover for whom I would do anything for. Constantly trying to save her while I was decomposing myself.

Broadjam Member Reviews

"Katie Kelly has created a masterful song about relationships and redemption, crafted out of sounds she seems to have harvested from deep inside the Earth."

Let me know if that works! Thanks again, and best of luck.

Lyrics

VERSE:
Smoke from the ashtray and the fire's half lit
Ya got a broken bottle, toxins, and a demon footprint
mmmmmmm
Now my own skin is melting, but you kind of life the burn
Ya see me treading water in a pool of gasoline
mmmmmm
Light a match and dance with me, 'til we're finally scorched clean

CHORUS:
And I'll Carry You
I'll Carry You
And I'll Carry You
And I'll Carry You
With my broken arms
On broken legs
'Til I collapse and split into you

VERSE:
Wasted by the bathtub and starting to get cold
I've been choking down your life and it's starting to get old
mmmmmm
Now this storm's been a brewing since the day that you were born
And the rain will fall upon us and rust our carved hearts
mmmmm
Go outside and dance with me, 'til we're finally drenched clean

CHORUS:
And I'll Carry You
Yes I'll Carry You
And I'll Carry You
And I'll Carry You
With my broken arms
On broken legs
'Til I collapse and split into you

BRIDGE:
And when the earth covers me whole
Will it finally start sinking in?
Years upon years and the ash upon my grave
Your flower falls
But it was you I tried to save

Light a match and dance with me until we're finally drenched clean

CHORUS:
I'll Carry You
Yes I'll Carry You
And I'll Carry You
And I'll Carry You
With my broken arms
On broken legs
With my broken arms
On broken legs
'Til I collapse and split into you
