So Help Me God

So Help Me God

A Poem by TadKent

Pledge. Lyrics.



One, long breath

Cause we both know

That you need it

Silence, again

Cause we both know

That I did it


Give  me comfort I don't deserve.

Feed me words, but try not to hurt.

If you stay with the same love

you walked in with,

There's no doubt I'll walk out 

A better man


'Cause this time,well I'm not

Crossing this line,

So help me God.


Wrap me in blankets I'll never need.

I've got all this warmth when you're here with me.

If you stay with the same love

you walked in with,

There's no doubt I'll walk out

a better man


Oh, this time, girl I'm not

crossing this line

So help me God.

'Cause won't I watch you cry

For the hunredth time?

Oh, please not that again, Oh God...


I need you to know that I'm still real.

I need you to say what you still feel.


This time, well I'm not

Crossing this line

So help me, God.

Argh how do you do that??? Maybe it's because I'm musically retarded, but it amazes me how you can write lyrics, and the music, and still do it so that when read without instruments and without singing it, it's still gorgeous.
I don't know whether the melody is first for you, and this is there to decorate your music, or you begin with the words as a foundation and go from there, but either way this is solid, I'd love to hear the song, I really would, I'm stunned by people who can put feelings into music sheets, it's an art I'll never be able to master.

My admiration, totally. You said so much simply, and perfectly, and honestly without the false fluffy imagery you find in poetry that has no bearing anymore in a modern world, gorgeous.

the more mistakes we make, the better people we become- IF we learn from them. Not knowing your situation, just thought I'd throw that out there. Good for you that you can channel all that into great lyrics. I'd like to hear this one played. Reminds me a bit of "Snow Patrol". If you haven't heard them, check them out. their lyrics have an intimate quality that is appealing on so may levels. Good work.

I just really love the line "I need you to know that I'm still real" to me, at least, it almost has the meaning behind it that even you still need to know that you still exist. This was a really great read !
