Benjamin Francis Leftwich - Maps Lyrics

I named a star for you
I named a star after you
But that wasn't bright enough for you

I climbed a hill for you
I climbed a hill just for you
But you said "That's nothing new, what does that prove?"

I know if I find when you hide in your mind, I'll get lost in it
I'll wait for the day when I find a way to make you mine

I put up a building for you
With thirteen floors and a nice view
But that wasn't good enough for you

So I pushed it down down like you asked
Built it again out of glass
So every star could shine through, darling,
And you'd change your mind
Didn't you?

Oh my darling, you should know
Since the last time you saw me, I have grown

I know if I find when you hide in your mind, I'll get lost in it
I'll wait for the day when I find a way to make you mine

    This piece fascinated me so hard. I love that moment i drew pictures of what i love while listening to this beautiful song. I get this feeling that he's saying it's okay, you're safe, you're enough, you're loved.

    Anyone have an idea why this isn’t on spotify?

    Ascoltai questa canzone un anno fa, me ne dimenticai.
    l'ascoltai di nuovo 6 mesi fa, me ne dimenticai. stessa cosa 2 mesi fa.
    e tutte le volte che l'ho ascoltata ho pensato che un giorno sarebbe diventata una delle mie canzoni preferite. così è stato. oggi la riascolto per la quarta volta, ma sembra sempre la prima, e allo stesso tempo la millesima.

  9. Sean Morris

    This music is so great to make you sit back and think about how great and lucky we are for life, this music makes me happy

  10. Anton Kolisnichenko

    You are amazing ! Thanks for your music . I love you.....

  11. Yiro Waarr

    is love ! ..

    is it odd that this song makes me upset rather than happy? my partner of two plus years left me and this song can have a very sad, but beautiful undertone. this is how i felt those two years. they left me because they just didnt love me. this is how it feels.


    @Bekky Steenstra Not odd, but it isn't the song that makes you upset, its the reminder of your partner of two years who left you that your associating with this song. If you associate it to this its because the song evoked an emotion or memory in you and only music can do that which is a beautiful thing. Your mind can set a tracklist of music to experiences you have but only you can apply the soundtrack to your life where you want it most. Hear this song and cheer up Bekky, someone better always comes along the way and create better experiences and new memories for you that will overshadow the ones that may upset you. It is only then where you can look back at those unwanted experiences and possibly laugh or cry but take it as an experience which will only build you for the better and will gain insight to know what you really want in an ideal man.

    Its not odd at all. At one point I felt that way but now I just enjoy it.

  15. Helena Vieira


  16. Lisa Oliveira

    His music is really soul and head cleansing.

  17. German Cepeda

    Why the fuck you aren't coming to mexico?

  18. Tatiana Z

    these types of songs should be shared more <3


    I loved hearing him play this without his mic and with his guitar unplugged. He asked us all at the HMV institute, Birmingham, to be as quiet as we could. It was so intimate and magical - he was also extremely brave to do that to the whole crowd - no mic or amps... Really impressive musician and person

  20. Liv Farrell

    this at Newcastle last night... unplugged from the amp, just started singing. Could hear a pin drop, was beautiful. UNREAL

  21. N4B5

    I love you more though <3
