Hold Your Maker / Chopping The Tree

by Andrea Gillis

1.
I'm ready, I'm ready now Ready for you I'm stronger, stronger now Pushing forward Hold your maker My life is burning out But I don't feel it Ears are ringing out Sounds deceiving Walking slower now Always evening Follow through the night Or am I leading? Hold your maker Draw up a shadow Take it down to the hollow Wade in the water Bites so cold and shallow I'm ready, I'm ready now Ready for you I'm stronger, stronger now Pushing forward Hold your maker Hold on

You always got the best of me Ocean eyes of lead and sleep Walked with me in waking dream Through the flame into the sea And now your chopping the tree You're chopping our tree right down You never said a word to me Bring the night too dark to see Took my hand and walked me in And left me in the howling wind And now your chopping the tree You're chopping our tree right down I swear if I still didn't love you I'd take that axe right from your hand And bury it so deep in your breastbone To get it out would take the world's strongest man You always got the best of me Ocean eyes of lead and sleep Walked with me in waking dream Through the flame into the sea And now your chopping the tree You're chopping our tree right down And now your chopping the tree You're chopping our tree right down
