Hudson Thames – Chess Lyrics

Chess By Hudson Thames

It’s amazin’ the way you can change me
From so far away
I miss you more now that I know you’re happy
Isn’t that cliche?
You make me feel like I conquered Goliath
In an ancient Rome
But, God, I love how I use this piano
Now that I’m alone

‘Cause I’ve been dancin’ in this room by myself
I’ve been playin’ games of chess with my health
I’ve been missin’ you, if you couldn’t tell
I’m here to tell you that I made up my mind
I took everything and you took your time
But I miss the way that life looks inside of your eyes
I’ve been waitin’ here for you, tonight

You’re the reason I stare at the ceilin’
When I’m all alone
‘Tis the season and I quit the drinkin’
Will you come back home?
I’ve fought with angels and seen every angle
Of the setting sun
But if every time that I hear Blackbird, I lose it
Maybe you’re the one

‘Cause I’ve been dancin’ in this room by myself
I’ve been playin’ games of chess with my health
I’ve been missin’ you, if you couldn’t tell
I’m here to tell you that I made up my mind
I took everything and you took your time
But I miss the way that life looks inside of your eyes
I’ve been waitin’ here for you, tonight
I’ve been waitin’ here for you, tonight
Waitin’ here for you

Dreams
Are tearin’ at the seams
I’m lost in what it means
Keep tellin’ me
It all gets better
Time has thrown me to the tide
I’m flawed if by design
Keep tellin’ me
It all gets better

And time has thrown me to the tide
I’m flawed if by design
Keep tellin’ me
It all gets better

‘Cause I miss the way that life looks inside of your eyes
