Poetry Friday: Drop to Hold You by Matt Nathanson

I've got a love that comes in colors
I got a voice, comes in screaming
My old clothes, they don't fit me now

When I was young, I took off running
I had a head full of tangles
I had my heart full of splinters, oh

And you came around
to save me

Now I drop to hold you...

I had a thief who stole my money
Took my heart, took it so quick
And left a hole as big as Texas, oh

And now I can hear the sweet swell of music
Feel the soft beat, beat push to the surface
Living life out loud, no one to blame it on

Yeah, you came around
to save me

Now I drop to hold you...

The satellite beams me closer
Keeps me steady
The satellite beams me closer
Oh, and I won't let you down

Now I drop to hold you...

- lyrics to Drop to Hold You by Matt Nathanson from his new album Modern Love

Listen to the song.
