  • Lyrics: When I met you I was drawnBy your face marked with tears not your ownI gave you a sad book to readYou stayed up all night crying about greedWith time ticking softly all JuneWe laughed at nonsense to make roomBoth hearts had been beat up and bruisedBy petty and selfish ones usedSymphonies of sideways glancesHands grazed and midnight romancesFairytales stories and feastsBrilliant lights just out of reachYou lived many miles awaySo we gently moved closer each dayYou calmed me with unfettered wordsI wept and my vision was blurredSo I’d fight your enemiesI’d brave the seven seasI’d break my back in the service of a queenAll I do is crumble underneathAt times your pain would appearA black serpent full of fire and fearI’d cry out and loose sleepNightmares upon me would creepYour friends always left you undoneTheir selfishness eclipsing the sunYou called out to heaven aboveYou called out for unhurried lovePiece by piece I came to knowThe broken down town where you’d grownNice places kind people you’d seenAnd darkness so ugly and meanYou found bright places in the dustLight reflected up among the rustYou held tight to innocenceHoping it could not be taken by forceSo I’d fight your enemiesI’d brave the seven seasI’d break my back in the service of a queenAll I do is crumble underneathYou fought brave against the tide With odds against you ran to hideWish I’d been there to shield the blowsWish I’d been there to hold your clothesI realized that I could not save youI realized that I’d never be that braveI pushed until I had to waitI waited till you pushed me awayThen one day the sky above was clearThe towering demons were nowhere nearSacred songs filtered through the cloudsRescue came down with joyous soundsFinally you knew you could sleepAt last you were not afraid to thinkYour heart held together every dayOne came to fight, that man made a way
