Hand to Hold

lyrics

oh sweet sister won't you be my morning
wanna be you comrade, don't want to be your informant
you and I are lovers baby
but that don't mean we can't be friends
I want your hand to hold
I aint asking for your hand to wed

don't wanna be your mister, wanna be your homey
saving all of my kisses for you and you only
we can take a stroll
we don't have to know what's coming around the bend
I want your hand to hold
I aint asking for your hand to wed

I know where you see yourself in the future
because you showed me
I know you think I'm super dooper
but it wasn't me you was holding
I wanna be your campfire
don't want to be your white-picket fence
I want your hand to hold
I aint asking for your hand to wed


I wanna get to know you baby
I aint trying to get up in your head

I don't want to be your man at all
baby, let me be your salty dog instead

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
