Noah Gundersen - Ledges Lyrics




I've got a lot of loose ends, I've done some damage,
I've cut the rope, so it frayed,
I've got a lot of good friends, keeping me distracted,
keeping my sanity safe,

[Chorus:]
Here, I stand on the edge of the ledges I've made,
Looking for a steady hand,
Here, I stand in the land of the rocks in the valley,
Trying to be a better man (for you),

And I drink a little too much, it makes me nervous,
I've got my grandfather's blood,
And I take a little too much, without giving back,
If blessed are the meek then I'm cursed,

[Chorus]

I want to learn how to love
Not just the feeling
bear all the consequences

And I want to learn how to love,
And give it all back,
And be forgiven for all I've done.

[Chorus]

    My close friend wanted new music suggestions and I thought of this and here I am crying for the first time in a while. The Holy Spirit is so present in you man... it shows, and that energy transfers to others. Been a fan since 2013 keep doing what you’re doing my friend.

    Great song, but the stripped down acoustic version is so much better.

  25. Athena

    Nothing compares to this music. Seeing him live in a cathedral in Seattle was definitely the most hauntingly beautiful concert of my life. I would love it if anyone checked out my cover of Heartbreaker on my channel :)

  39. Phil1119

    Thank god for the Coffee House is all I can say....

  40. Victor Winter

    Noah, ever since I saw you with my aunt in Portland three years ago. your music has been a part of my soul.

  41. Alex Helenius

    If Justin Vernon from Bon Iver and him got to Collaborate, imagine the compositions they would make.

    Andrew Utz

    +Alex Helenius That would be good. I think a Sufjan and Justin Vernon collab would be even better though!

    Danah Koch

    +Alex Helenius My brain is about to explode trying to comprehend this collaboration. My two favorite songwriters...holy shit. It'd be genius.

    Olly Chrich

    Or him and The Lone Bellow

    Noah, all of your music is absolutely amazing, and your videos only improve the listening experience, refreshing and creative.

  46. Solomon Lujan

    I met him. A wonderful man indeed.

  47. Philip Ervin

    I acknowledge that this song is amazing, and that music videos rarely represent what they accompany; Though I must express my confusion between this video and a Levi's commercial.

  48. Carynmusic

    He would've loved this. Thanks for your music. It keeps me sane when I understandably shouldn't be.

  49. Catseman

    ugh, I dont know how I ended up with this open in a tab but I didn't notice and kept trying to figure out what the fuck was coming from. sounded like some pre-teen white bitches wet dream, coulda been a trailer for a new gilmore girls movie or some shit.  

  50. Rosie Milne

    This is such a beautiful song! 

  51. Prodigalallan

    Awesome fuckin song. We all need a steady hand sometime. Even the strongest of us can make it alone...

  52. Amber Carr

    In love with this song.

    I don't ever listen to music like this but it was amazing! Keep on doing your music!

  54. Eric Lambrecht

    Who else thinks the Intro / Main Theme has a striking resemblence to "If I Am A Stranger" by Ryan Adams!?

    Fredo

    Yes, completely

  55. Seth McEntire

    This song is phenomenal and the quality of this video i right up a long with it.  Great Stuff!!!

  56. dmbkersh

    This video is Holoscene by Bon Iver. Just sayin.

    Anicsi Roscoe

    What are you saying, they're two completely different videos. With the exception of there being a child. The feeling and concept are entirely different.

  57. Peter Tuthill

  63. James Meloche
