lyrics

Robert
Words and Music by Samantha Schultz
© 2010 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

Robert, you’re no ordinary man
But you have scraped and bruised your two hands
Too many times
Robert, they say you’re made out of steel
But these dark days are turning out to be quite real
This extraordinary man who talks as fast as he can

Robert, you’re crossing four into five
On the concrete walls that are killing you
But you stay alive
Robert, you plead guilty for the millionth time
For the millionth time
For the millionth time

Why can’t you just see the light?
Why can’t you just steal the light?
Steal it like you steal my heart
Steal it to blow these things apart
You must have some sort of clue
Take my light and light your pipe
Burn it bright to guide
The freezing man within you

Robert, you’re walking on blood red floors
Please realize that when you are good, you get much more
Robert tends to cry but doesn’t know what for
Such a conflicted man who doesn’t like to follow plans

CHORUS

Guide your way back to the stars
And no matter what you lack, you’re still my star
I would erase all the scars if I could, it’s true
But would you be the man who I knew?

CHORUS
