SAY YOU'RE MINE

I N S P I R A T I O N

This was a first venture into alternative tuning. It is a simple little song. I wrote it during a time when I was working in a large grass drying plant. It was at this time that I experienced being "on call" through the night. That is probably where the broken night reference comes from.



Lyrics


Day breaks on a broken night.

I need you now 'though I have no right.

I don't need candle light,

To say you're mine.


I give you all I own.

All I possess is yours alone.

Melt down this heart of stone,

And say you're mine.


Say you're mine.

Say you're mine.

Melt down this heart of stone,

And say you're mine.


We share such tenderness.

You fill this life with hopefulness.

In every sweet caress,

Say you're mine.


Say you're mine.

Say you're mine.

In every sweet caress,

Say you're mine.


I say these things while we're alive.

Today we live in hope and strive,

For all that must yet arrive,

Say you're mine.


Say you're mine.

Say you're mine.

For all that must yet arrive,

Say you're mine.
