Gift For Meldody Anne lyrics

The Avett Brothers

I want to get back
I want to get square
I want to get back on the hopes
and dreams that I have
that the good Lord above us can spare

I just want my life to true
just want my heart to be true
just want my words to be true
want my soul to feel brand new

I just want my words to be true
I want my soul to feel brand brand new
like a fresh coat of paint, we can make it anything but blue anything but blue


Like that actor said
I don't wanna lose heart
I don't wanna get beat beat down
By the big big world
Or quit
Before I even start

Lord, I just want me life to be true
Yeah, and I just want me heart to be true
Yeah, and I just want my words to be true
I want my soul to feel brand new

I wanna hold hands
Yeah, and I wanna make love
And I wanna keep running all day
And all night even when my mind tells my body that's enough

And I wanna stand up
Yeah, and I wanna stand tall
If I ever have a son, if I ever have a daughter
I don't wanna tell ‘em that I didn't give my all

And, I just want me life to be true
Yeah, and I just want me heart to be true
Yeah, and I just want my words to be true
I want my soul to feel brand brand new
Like a fresh coat of paint
We can make it anything but blue
Anything but blue

Now when your dreams start saying, I can't come true
You'd be better off without me
Don't let ‘em go
Don't let ‘em go

I don't wanna go broke
Not from one bad deal
I don't wanna be up all night
Crying in my hands
For a girl that isn't even real

Lord, I just want me life to be true
Yeah, and I just want me heart to be true
And, I just want my words to be true
Yeah, and I just want my song to be true
Yeah, and I just want my heart to be true
Yeah, and I just want my life to be true
Yeah, and I just want my words to be true
And, I just want my heart to be true
Yeah, and I just want my life to be true
And, I just want my song to be true
And, I just want my life to be true

I want my soul to feel brand new
I want my soul to feel brand new
