A Pillar at Dawn

Music & Lyrics by Ahmond

Verse:
I've never read a story quite like ours
I'm a vampire on the run
And you're a lamp post stand
Hollywood doesn't care about you
Or care about us
I've never seen a picture show
With an ending I would want
I never knew someone like you would exist
Our quiet audience wonders what this is

Chorus:
If I could turn my head
And not turn into salt
If I could turn my head
And not turn into salt
I'd look at you
I'd look at you

Verse:
I've seen the statues of all the other men
A failed but nice attempt to shine
A new light over land
You and me learned how
To halt a thoroughbred
Drown him in a sea of was
And what just might have been
I've never met someone like you before
And I don't want to say goodbye anymore

Bridge:
If love is only for a moment
Then I'm lying in a hammock with you
Under the stars
If love is only fleeting moments
Then I'm holding very tight to you
And then I let you go

I've never met someone like you before
And now I have to say goodbye once more

Chorus:
If I could turn my head
And not turn into salt
If I could turn my head
And not turn into salt
I'd look at you
I'd look at you
I'd look at you
I'd look at you
