about

Everybody knows this story ... for those of you who don't, wander over to our CDBaby page for 'Beth'. This song probably has more fans than I do ... very popular with the ladies! The lyrics to this song were almost thrown out by mistake, I began writing a new song on the flip-side of the page and well, it wasn't going well and I would have tossed it out if not for the telltale coffee cup ring. I spent six hours working out the parts on Baby Taylor in Nashville tuning. No reason really, as I had nailed the parts and picking structure within the first fifteen minutes ... just didn't want to stop playing. Crystal.

lyrics

Here I am…make your move
It isn’t hard for you to hold me tonight
You should know….you can’t lose
I’m the best thing you could have in your life

Shall I wait … in a room
‘Til your small voice beckons me on
Until that day gets closer, babe
It’s just one more night alone.

I only want to be a hero
In a world where we can win
I’ll be the author of your story
And you will be my heroine.

Ah, the moon … burns like a candle
Pools of wax all over the ground
Tonight the nightbirds scream your name
And you’re nowhere to be found

Shall I stay … in this tomb
With tapestries as dark as the stone
One more day in this empty place
And just one more night alone
