the beggar and the proud young lady lyrics – anthem

cast away, i count the days,
chalk lines on a dull grey wall,
my battered copy of shakespeare with me,
hideaway world at the call.
then you came along and changed me
we fought through it for a time,
i feel i’m finally deserving,
yeah i feel like i’m
caught up in the moment,
i didn’t realize the changes were so deep.
i see you in everything,
you give me something to believe.
i never thought i could feel like this
never knew what my heart could do.
but i’d sell my soul for a new guitar
just to serenade you.
just past the point of awkward,
not completely comfortable yet
like two familiar strangers
lying side by side in bed.
doesn’t matter what once was,
doesn’t matter what used to be
i don’t care who you were before,
i only want what’s here with me.
i’m sorry for the jealousy
sorry that i was so insecure
i had to settle things in my heart,
yeah i had to know for sure
(now i do)…
i never thought i could feel like this
never knew what my heart could do.
but i’d sell my soul for a new guitar
just to serenade you.
come dance with me in the moonlight
lay your head on me and smile
then dance with me in the morning
come stay with me for a while.
i know in the end we’ll be alright
i can see that in your face
we have p*ssed through the green world
and the other side awaits…
i never thought i could feel like this
never knew what my heart could do.
but i’d sell my soul for a new guitar
just to serenade you.
i never thought i could feel this way
and i’d give it all for one more day
i would walk on water and steal like a thief
just to be a beggar at your feet
i never thought i could feel like this
never knew what my heart could do.
but i’d sell my soul for a new guitar
just to serenade you.
