Idk if it ever got listed on here but there verse that's repeated a lot at the end of Handwritten, are the lyrics for that here somewhere because the first post didn't list that part. Even if you tell me it's in here somewhere I'll go looking. Thanks!

The part where he's singing "with this pen I thee wed from my heart to your distress"?

Underneath that he's just repeating "every word handwritten."

Yeah that line. That's what I thought but I wasn't sure. Thanks!

It might be my favorite chorus of the ones that I know so far.

Kinda She Loves You all over again with me being pissed that the bonus song is a bonus song.

I'm hearing "man enough" in the chorus through a pair of decent headphones... Also when I heard the way he sung

I got chills. Definitely wasn't expecting that, it hit me the same way

did.

That's one of the big things I'm loving about this album, his voice seems to have so much more emotion in it.

Haha yeah to be honest I heard "man enough" also hence the question mark, just seems like a kind of strange lyric if it is "man enough". Interesting though.

Haven't listened to the rest of the album but really looking forward to it if his voice is as emotional as everyone is saying.

Yeah, it seems like he's gotten a lot more confident in what he can do with his voice. If you've got even an ounce of emotion in you Mullholland, Keepsake, and Mae will hit you like a ton of bricks. Mullholland more so for me because it's so damn relatable, but the end is a REAL treat.

I'm with you on this one. Fell in love with the preview on amazon that was released a few weeks back and I absolutely love this one too.

Like for example I couldn't tell in the chorus if he's saying "could live with it" or "can live with it"
it sounds like in the first two choruses he's saying "could" and the last he is saying "can" but I just settled on "can"

Let me know for any changes but i think its like 95% correct


P.s. so far its like my favorite... I'm sure it will change but right now - so good!

Keepsake

It's been 31 years since she's been in your arms
but don't worry about Mama, Mama's got a good heart
And I'm not looking for your love, I'm only sniffing out blood
Just a little taste of where I came from

And at the bottom of this river
is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart heart heart there are these waters
where I put you down to lay while I learn to live with it
till I'm free

And its been all my life
I've been wondering on the inside
what we could of had if you had a part of my life
and there were children involved and they were brothers to me
even if we never got to meet

And at the bottom of this river
is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart there are these waters
where I put you down to lay while I learn to live with it
till I'm free-

-at last from this shadow that hangs
surely you wonder sometimes and I'm sure you won't sympathise
just what a mans to become but just like his daddy's done
I just want to love someone who has the same blood

And at the bottom of this river
is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart there are these waters
where I put you down to lay while I learn to live with it
For keepsake - till I'm free


These are mostly right with just a few lines off.

And in my hard, hard heart there are these waters

And I'm sure you all sympathize

Late answer (been avoiding spoilers), but absolutely. It's not even as if he's tried to hide it.

Thunder, escapes, dresses waving, radio, etc.

Good spot.

Wow, the dress waving thing did remind me of thunder road but I didn't actually stop to think about it. Now I feel dumb, haha.
