David Gray – If 8 Were 9 Lyrics

If 8 Were 9 Lyrics By David Gray


If skin should touch
And words evaporate
Trouble clear outta sight
With my whole body listenin’
My heart leans out
Like these old river trees
Closer to be where you glide
Movin’ under me, glistenin’

If 8 were 9
I would hold you
Yeah I would rock you
I would shelter you darlin’
If 8 were 9
I would lift you
Lift you clear off the ground
Through the gates into morning

That time would stretch
Stretch out these magic hours
Into days into years
Tomorrow lost in the distance
A voice speaks out
Says “Hey man, let it go”
But when a heart has been true
Well it don’t make any difference

If 8 were 9
Yeah I would hold you
Yeah I would rock you
I would shelter you darlin’
If 8 were 9
I would lift you
Lift you clear off the ground
Through the gates into morning

If 8 were 9
If 8 were 9
If 8 were 9
Through the gates into morning, yeah

Yeah
Through the gates into morning
