about

Written by Ross Breen

lyrics

Steppin’ out to the precipice
Staring into the void
Standing on the outer edge
Bereft of hope and joy

One more step and it’ll be all be over
The ice and water will take me
There’s a guardian angel at my shoulder
I think of my wife and baby

And it turns me back
From drawing a shade
Over all of my tomorrows

Oh baby, if I had a big ole lasso
I’d throw it round the moon
And pull it down for you

Driving out to meet my girl
Frost in the tarmac twinkling
Winter coats at the cemetery
All the families and I start thinking

Of my own friend and the kin who spend
The first Christmas without him
Slow to a stop, give myself in
To the weight of it and I’m drowning

Then she turns me back
Away from the shade
Toward all of our tomorrows

So baby, if I’d a big ol' lasso…

[inst.]

And it turns me back
From drawing a shade
Over all of my tomorrows
Oh baby, if I had a big ole lasso…

Back in the shack, sense won’t stack
The wood stove keeps on burning
All adrift, the white won’t shift
And start to feel the yearning

Just to meet my lover
And see the light dance in her eyes, hear the laughter
Flowing from her like the river of time
I know I’ve always been after

It will carry me back
Over the shade
Into all of our tomorrows

My lady, if I had a big ole lasso
I’d throw it round the moon
And pull it down for you
