Darling...


If the world should fall away today  
just hold my hand

And if we stand at the end of time
just hold my hand

And if it’s a Sunday morning
unremarkable
in every way
just hold my hand

    (For some reason I am having difficulty getting here,
    most times it blocks me & tells me I am not signed in- which of course I am! So if you don't hear from me that's why -)
