Won't You Be My Solid Ground?

The Perishers
"Sway (live)"
Listen | Buy

NOTES: I'm still in love with this band. This is a live track from the band's live release on iTunes (the Buy link above goes to a player on the band's website that let's you listen to all of the tracks). This track was apparently featured on an episode of Veronica Mars. I love the chorus of this song, especially the sentiment of asking someone to be your "solid ground."

I talk to you as to a friend
I hope that's what you've come to be
It feels as though we've made amends
Like we found a way eventually

It was you who picked the pieces up
When I was a broken soul
And then glued me back together
Returned to me what others stole

I don't wanna hurt you
I don't wanna make you sway
Like I know I've done before
I will not do it anymore
I've always been a dreamer
I've had my head among the clouds
Now that I'm coming down
Won't you be my solid ground?

I look at you and see a friend
I hope that's what you wanna be
Are we back now where it all began?
Have you finally forgiven me?

You gathered my dreams in
When they all blew away
And then tricked them back into me
You saved me I was almost dead
