lyrics

STILL ON THE RIDE
Josh Geartz / Mary Gauthier

Looking back now who the hell knows
Where the soul of a dead soldier goes
Guardian angels, maybe they’re true
My guardian angel, maybe it’s you

I shouldn’t be here you shouldn’t be gone
But it’s not up to me who dies and who carries on
I sit in my room I close my eyes
Me and my guardian angel we’re still on the ride

Got holes in my eardrums bruises and clots
Double vision, my stomach is always in knots
Pain in my fingers I hurt from my head to my toes
I wake up feeling like I’m 90 years old

I shouldn’t be here you shouldn’t be gone
But it’s not up to me who dies and who carries on
I sit in my room I close my eyes
Me and my guardian angel, we’re still on the ride

You were my brother you were more than a friend
You were family to me right up to the end
And you’re still with me now, I feel you, I know
You’re pushing me forward and you’ll never let go

I shouldn’t be here you shouldn’t be gone
But it’s not up to me who dies and who carries on
I sit in my room I close my eyes
Me and my guardian angel, we’re still on the ride
