The Follow Through

This song is performed with Patricia Lynn from The Soldier Thread. Her lyrics are in italics.

Pride
It leaves you hollow
Another attempt
Just to settle the score
A war, you know the one you built it up
It’s real defining
Humiliation
Knocks at your door

You say, I blow up
I say, you cave in
We never found the line between
The real and pretend
You know you should accept it
This is really the end
I know for sure, it’s what I have to do
Is follow through

You were everything I ever want to be
The only one I ever need to know
I’d wait for you till time lay down to sleep
and I’d sneak across the world to let her know

Yeah, that’s what I do
Yeah, I follow through
Oh, I follow through

And here I stand
I’m too close but still you’re far away
You never tried but I did
And we still remain divided

Oh, I can’t believe that your heart’s still beating
It’s beating for me at all
How sad of you
But I’m not sad at all

You say I blow up
I say you cave in
We never found the line between
The real and pretend
You know you should accept it
This is really the end
I know for sure, it’s what I have to do
Is follow through

And you were everything I ever want to be
The only one I ever need to know
I’d wait for you till time lay down to sleep
and I’d sneak across the world to let her know

And as it falls down into night we run away
Once again divided
But each one knows just what we have to do
We do
We have to follow through

I will lay down my heart
I will let you go
That’s what’s best for us all

‘Cause now we stand beneath the clouds and God above
I will lay down my heart
Like we did before
I will let you go
But this time for her
That’s what’s best for us all
Yeah, we’ll follow through

You’re everything I ever want to be
The only one I ever need to know
I’d wait for you till time lay down to sleep
And I’d sneak across the world to let her know

Justin and Patricia together
Hold my heart
Patiently
Take my hand
And walk with me
‘Cause when the evening comes
We’ll set the world on fire
I was wrong
Let me help you live on

You’re everything I ever want to be
The only one I ever need to know
I’d wait for you till time lay down to sleep
And I’d sneak across the world to let her know

And as it falls down into night we run away
‘Cause when the evening comes
Once again divided
We’ll set the world on fire
But each one knows just what we have to do
I was wrong
We do
Let me help you live on
We have to follow through

Hold my heart
Patiently
Take my hand
And walk with me
‘Cause when the evening comes
We’ll set the world on fire
I was wrong
Let me help you live on

Justin: What?

Blue: It’s way over there, on top of the plane.

Justin: What is it?

Blue: It’s a flag.

Justin: That’s an American flag

Blue: Yeah

Justin: I love you.
