1. With You There

From the recording Mama's Biscuits

Sometimes we need the shoulder of a friend who isn't nearby. This song is from the point of view of the one who is consoling from afar, and who longs to be near.

Musicians: Kirby Heard: Vocals, Guitar
Danny Gotham: Mandolin
FJ Ventre: Upright Bass
Laurelyn Dossett: Vocals

It makes me sad to see you cry
Your quivering lips, your red eyes
Wish I were there in the same town
To take away what makes you frown

But I’m too far and you’re alone,
Can’t hold you closer than my phone
Nor wish the miles away, instead
I’ll hold you in my dreams ahead

Close your eyes, I’m with you there
You must know how much I care

Kiss your brow, stroke your cheek
I’ll hold you close while you’re asleep

I hate to see him break your heart
He has no clue how far apart
He’s driven you, though close you were
But not so now; that seems a blur
Longing to restore your smile
I’ll hold you in my mind awhile
Your light I wish to reignite
And see your beacon in the night
