6 pockets (4:58)



(Ruth Moody)

We liveded each other's pockets
We lived in each other's seams
We lived in the hope that someday
We would see our love redeemed

We took all the roads less travelled
We took the roads most would avoid
We could make each other feel so empty
Then we were there to fill th void

And my heart belonged
And my heart belonged
To all of you

We liveded each other's futures
We lived in each other's dreams
We spoke of the future less and less
'Til dream was all it seemed

And my heart belonged
And my heart belonged
To all of you

Oh but we dreamed, we would have died back then
We were young and we believed
As brothers will for brothers
And captains know they cannot leave
But soon the curtain it came down on us
Blame was laid and questions raised
And so like leaves we were all scattered
But in our hearts is never changed

We liveded each other's pockets
With the shadows and the shame
We held on for fear of losing love
Just as quickly as it came

And my heart belonged
And my heart belonged
And my heart belonged
To all of you
