Livingston – The Author Lyrics

Darling, I will be the wind behind your sails
I will be the one to tell your tails
I will be the one to hold your secrets
I will be your earth when all else fails
So if you’re ever scared to jump before me
Take the fear off of your face
‘Cause I will be the one to write your story
And I won’t forget a single page

But you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
I began by writing down your name
You and I will be the characters, we’ll meet by the seventh page
Suburban drama, picture-perfect in the frame
But by the seventh chapter things will never be the same, ’cause
Eighth grade we met, it wouldn’t be the last time
The suspense that I meet you in a past life
Heroes in our stories save the world like a past time
But the road to happy endings ain’t a fast line
The Epiphany in chapter twenty-two
Recurring theme in me living life without you
Some would call it tragic but it’s only just the start
‘Cause even faith couldn’t keep them apart

 Darling, I will be the wind behind your sails
I will be the one to tell your tails
I will be the one to hold your secrets
I will be your earth when all else fails
So if you’re ever scared to jump before me
Take the fear off of your face
‘Cause I will be the one to write your story
And I won’t forget a single page

But you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
So follow me
Through the page, don’t pray for perfection
I won’t be
The one to save you from all your questions
I still see
That you are brave despite the scars you hide
Don’t turn away from the night
Don’t you turn away from the night

 Darling, I will be the wind behind your sails
I will be the one to tell your tails
I will be the one to hold your secrets
I will be your earth when all else fails
So if you’re ever scared to jump before me
Take the fear off of your face
‘Cause I will be the one to write your story
And I won’t forget a single page

But you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
Oh, darling, you could be the author
