cradle me

a fool i know i am
but i am not ashamed
there’s nothing to forgive
‘cause nothing’s to be blamed
time is on my hand
and i keep my palms up
you can find me where i stand
but hurry up because

i run instead of stay
to jump into another day
i run instead of stay
oh cradle me
come and rock with me
while i am on this wave

i gaze into myself
it never is too late
sometimes i am the fisherman
sometimes i am the bait
i see the sky inside
while i am lying on my back
i think that’s where i am
and i am right on track

while i run instead of stay
to jump into another day
i run instead of stay
oh cradle me
come and rock me now
while i am on this cloud

a fool i know i am
as happy as can be
i’m counting all my toes
and play a major key
i sing a simple song
it’s all i need today
and i might hang around
as long as i can play

but i run instead of stay
to jump into another day
i run instead of stay
oh cradle me
come and rock me now
while i am on this wave
