7DD02 Lyrics: Silk of Your Hand

SILK OF YOUR HAND Chris Murphy © Running Mower Music, a division of Erfeemay Entertainment If you want to get on that plane without me Just go right ahead But you’ll leave lying here with a broken heart And the rest of me will be dead I can’t stop thinking last night while we drove The sun chasing us down that Vegas road And I knew I was in the middle of a memory When I felt the silk of your hand I felt the silk of your hand I felt the silk of your hand It saved me If you want to live your life without me I won’t complain I also won’t leave your voice mail alone As I use that pay phone in the rain It’ll be like a scene from a tragedy Where career and the life takes the place of me And I’ll die all alone ‘cept the habits I own But I’ll remember the silk of your hand Remember the silk of your hand Remember the silk of your hand It saved me So go on girl do what you need As you walk away please think of me Leaving me alone and wrecked forevermore I know, death will be slow If you want to get on that plane without me Just go right ahead But you’ll leave lying here with a broken heart And the rest of me will be...

The part of the movie that really sticks with me long after the credits roll is the underlying theme of improving yourself beyond what is considered possible (changing your stars). I think it is healthy to push yourself to greatness, but trying to do it without a plan seems foolish. So far in my life I wish I had been more intentional with pushing forward to change my stars.
