Tuesday morning, the blank sheet
Sits before me and the pen won’t move
Won’t you tell me what I’m missing?
Won’t you tell me how you feel?
Would you let me fall when I let go?
Would you ever let me know?

Please, I’m begging
Take this hand and hold it
Take this heart and know it
Take the chances, take the pain
Take the sun babe, take the rain

And if the water drowns you
And if the dampness creeps
And if the morning thunders
And if the anger seeps
Well morning dries those tears
And shelter hides those fears
Your tight lips press back
The darkness several years
So take the chances, take the pain
Take the sun babe, take the rain

Friday morning, and cold feet
Finally freeze my steps into ice
Won’t you hold me please, I’m slipping
Won’t you tell me how you feel?
Would I fall away when you let go?
Would you ever let me know?

Please, I’m begging
Take this hand and hold it
Take this heart and know it
Take the chances, take the pain
Take the sun babe, take the rain

And if the water drowns you
And if the dampness creeps
And if the morning thunders
And if the anger seeps
Well morning dries those tears
And shelter hides those fears
Your tight lips press back
The darkness several years
So take the chances, take the pain
Take the sun babe, take the rain

Take this hand and hold it
Take this heart and know it
Take the chances, take the pain
Take the sun babe, take the rain

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
