The Format – On Your Porch
I was on your porch, The smoke sank into my skin,
So I came inside to be with you,
We talked all night,
About everything you could imagine,
‘Cause come the morning,
I’ll be gone,
And as our eyes start to close,
I turn to you and I let you know,
That I love you.

Well, my dad was sick,
My mom she cared for him,
Her loving nursed him back to life,
And me, I ran, I couldn’t even look at him,
For fear I’d have to say goodbye,

And as I start to leave,
He grabs me by the shoulder and he tells me,
“Whats left to lose? You’ve done enough,
And if you fail then you fail but not to us,
‘Cause these last three years, I know they have been hard,
But now it’s time to get out of the desert and into the sun,

Even if its alone.”

So now here I sit,

In a hotel off of Sunset
My thoughts bounce off Sam’s guitar,
And thats the way its been,
Ever since we were kids,
but now,
Now, we’ve got something to prove,
And I, I can see their eyes, T
hen tell me something, can they see mine?
‘Cause whats left to lose? I’ve done enough,
And if I fail then I fail but I gave it a shot,

‘Cause these last three years I know they have been hard,
But now it’s time to get out of the desert and into the sun,

Even if it’s alone, (Even if it’s alone)
Even if it’s alone.

I was on your porch last night,
The smoke, it sank into my skin.
