Anchor

By ruby blu and christopher blevins

I added a couple verses to Ruby Blu’s original song “Memories” to create this one. Inspired by the anchors that we drop to hold us to what we believe in.

lyrics

(Ruby Blu)

We often live in our memories

Because it's harder letting go of what it used to be 

And you wouldn't believe it could ever happen to you

But the truth hits hardest, when you don't listen to it.

And all my tears have fell for nothing

All my love has been forgot

And all this hope it has been lost

And it's hard to go on

It's hard to go, this way

And I could dance with somebody else, somebody new

But the rhythm wouldn't quite feel the same without you

And I could find somebody else, somebody new

But time isn't well spent when I'm without you

(Christopher)

So I'll head off to my destination. I don't know what's next I'll take it

I don't know what's left to say, our roads will curve to separate places

I'll forget the empty spaces, I will let it go

But I'll still keep it close somehow

I don't know why I tend to doubt, stepping with my head in clouds

I guess I should remember there won't ever be a better route

I'll forget that you have left me out, and then I will let it go

I'm fine just on my own for now

So sometimes it's dark skies and all are, are paper planes

Facing all that can't be changed, I won't get swept away with rain

And if we start to sway, know that I will take the reigns

I promise we won't touch that ground

So find me trying to rearrange, I can see the seasons change

I know a piece of mind should be the only thing I reach today

But if I don't then either way, know that I will be okay

I still smile when the sun goes down

I still smile when the sun goes down

I still smile when the sun goes down

(Ruby Blu)

I'm hoping time will forgive me

Because I've been living in a blind reality,

And I didn't think that this would ever be me,

But all my wasted hours have finally found me.

And all my tears have fell for nothing

All my love has been forgot

And all this hope it has been lost

And it's hard to go on

It's hard to go, this way

And I could dance with somebody else, somebody new

But the rhythm wouldn't quite feel the same without you

And I could find somebody else, somebody new

But time isn't well spent when I'm without you

(Christopher)

So I'll head off with these photographs, I don't know why I'm holding back

I stole a couple moments from the ocean that I hoped we'd have

I'll forget the broken path, I won't fix it today

So I will plead the fifth for now

I don't know why I overthink, I simply don't get over things

I tossed my anchor overboard, I'm staying if the boat will sink

I watched you as you went and broke the link, and now we drift away

We float until our ships go down

So sometimes it's clear skies and all we have are clouded minds

I sat down and counted time I somehow let some hours by

If life's a road I'm now reminded by encountered signs

Of my home within the mountain sound

So find me trying to chase the storm, I will step away for more

And I know I will reach it with my moral compass facing north

My heart knows what I made it for, I'll never change the way it's formed

Because I'll always have my anchor down

I said I'll always have my anchor down

I said I'll always have my anchor down

Always have my anchor down
