lyrics

She knocks on my door
She just wants to hang
And never asks more
She knows where I've been
Don't care what's she'll be
Babe, you know I don't talk
And you get what you see

Now, step into the light
Let me see your face
You course at me like a river
Your hands to my waist
Let me take your coat
Would you like a seat?
I guess the night is looking young
I've got nowhere to be

Sure, shake out your hair, I never mind
Hold me tight, but what are you looking to find?

Child, you're too young to know
But, the harder you hold, the faster they make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, if you want that tonight
It's been a long and winding road
You don't look like you're ready to go

Move on in
Nestle up
Take a warm sip from this cup
There's no rush
You're so sweet
The darkness is soft
Your breath the heat

Oh, now, Girl
Your eyes so wide
Your hands on my chest
Slip down to my sides
That whiskey scent
We pulled in here
Feel it in your arms
It's gonna fill up our ears

Then, you step close, trip over your shoes
I can tell you've been learning what it's like to lose

Child, you're too young to know
But, the harder you hold, the faster they make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, if you'd want that tonight
It's been a long and winding road
You look like you might want to know

And I could never
Turn her away
She never asks
Already sure she can stay
Here tonight
You feel so right
My little tempest in a teapot
Look the storm in the eye
And she'll fly
Out the window to dawn
Never wakes me for a kiss
Before she is gone
And that's alright
I just bid her good flight
She always seems to come back around
When she feels like taking my time

And that's fine, no, I never mind
Storm Cloud Baby, let's make thunder tonight

Child, you're too young to know
But the harder you hold, the faster they make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, if you want that tonight
It's been a long and winding road
You look like you already know

So, baby, fly in here
I am not one to land
I am not one to force
Rivers into my hand
Go on and ride your wave
To the top of the crest
You find you never crash down
If you have nothing left
They could want

Child, you're too young to know
But, don't hold on too tight, they just make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, would you let me tonight?
Oh, babe, this ain't about your soul
I think you already know
