Don't Let Her Love Hold You Down

This song is by Gretta Ray and appears on the EP Elsewhere (2016).

He says, "Give it a rest, woman and put down your smokes
Now, there's no need to curse
Don't let anymore words through your throat
Inhale with me, try to keep yourself still
You know the air will seem colder until you get over this hill"
And for his sake, I hope that she will

He says, "You're working harder than I ever have seen
To fix up your act and to clamber right back on the horse
That you fell off when you were fourteen
And so I'm here if you need, won't you settle on down?"
And then he hangs up the phone, letting his voice change its tone
Wipes his brow, "She's all good for now"

And though time is your friend
It runs out at the end of the line
You might say that you're fine
But don't you know

Brother, the world is your oyster
So open your window and blink in the light
And turn away from the fight

You see, since he grew stubble
He's in a drunk state of mind all the time
Well, honey, I met him sober with his hair down to his shoulder
And he couldn't even see through his naked eye
However, wait till you see him with a paper and pen
For his words find a rhythm and he puts a tune with 'em
And he kind of starts looking like a free man again

And since I am your friend
I refuse to pretend that I don't mind
How could you be so blind?
When you know

Brother, the world is your oyster
So open your window and blink in the light
Brother, if only your choice were
To climb into my skin and see yourself through my eyes
So, for now, some advice

You don't know the places you could go
Don't let her love hold you down
You don't know the places you will go
Don't let her love hold you down

Brother, the world is your oyster
So open your window and blink in the light
Brother, if only your choice were
To climb into my skin and see yourself through my eyes
'Cause you're wrapped 'round her finger so incredibly tight
So turn away from the fight
