Have My Cake (and Eat it, Too)

by The Amy Hoffman



Recorded on a whim; released as a thank you. Knuckz&bowz, friends.


Well, I built a life up north, but left my heart to hold the fort so in good time, across state lines I'll be again.
Now, I spill my guts from coast to coast in hopes I might find a way to see this through - to find my way back home to you.

I can't have it all at once, but I refuse to give you up. No, I can't have it all at once, but you here now is more than enough.

With every shift I watch my conscience work to keep itself upright, sorting through the pros and cons for dear life.
In your eyes I see my hands are where proof's burden still resides - that's how I know I'll find my way back home to you.

You're more than enough to keep me crossing thresholds, weathering the storm. As our friends touch home base safely, I'll be running back for more of the places I have loved, all the pieces I have lost. As I redefine livelihood you'll be my only thought.
