Cherish – Gretta Ray Lyrics

It’d be so brave of me to walk away
Leave this apartment, leave this place we taint
Hold my head, sleep on it, keep you waiting
Draw it out, give you space ’til it pains you

We sit in silence here in the bed we made
I sit beside you, wearily taking your weight
You pull back, I reach out, try to save you
Come undone then go numb, like it’s easy to

I’m playing all of my cards, sweetheart, but I’m no match for your demons
I know that I won’t beat them
Questions I should never ask are all that I seem to ponder lately
As times ahead look hazy
What do I have to do
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?

Summer was wondrous feeling assured and safe
Soaked in daylight and love
We were thinking straight
Photographs show us as we were then, babe
Look at us now, tearing this down like we want it this way

My childhood room is in boxes
Packed up half of my life
Everything I have to offer is in your hands, still I
Feel I may not be enough
You think I don’t fit quite right
But the way your body holds mine makes me think otherwise

I’m playing all of my cards, sweetheart, but I’m no match for your demons
I know that I won’t beat them
Questions I should never ask are all that I seem to ponder lately
As times ahead look hazy
What do I have to do
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?

What do I have to do
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?
What do I need to say
To bring you back to recenter and see me the way
I want you to?

I’m playing all of my cards, sweetheart, but I’m no match for your demons
I know that I won’t beat them
Questions I should never ask are all that I seem to ponder lately
As times ahead look hazy
What do I have to do
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?

It’d be so brave of me to walk away
