Wanting to Stay

[VERSE: C Am G F C / C F G F C CHORUS: C Am G F CGF CGF]

You were a southern storm
Hypnotic and bright
You were sand in my shoes
You were all that I knew for a little while

Sudden and cruel
Soaking me through
Frozen in fear
Somehow wanting more
Was all that I knew

But oh for a gentle breeze
on one sunny day
I was a crab on the shore
Digging my little home
Singing wanting to stay, wanting to stay, wanting to stay
wanting to stay, wanting to stay, wanting to stay

You were Kudzu vine
Blocking out all the light
Weaving in between trees
Climbing taller each day
Chocking out all the life

Persistent and strong
A weed through and through
Spreading far and wide
No place that could hide from your system of roots

But oh for some sweet relief
For a tidal wave
I was a crab on the shore
Digging my little home
Singing wanting to stay, wanting to stay, wanting to stay
wanting to stay, wanting to stay, wanting to stay
