lyrics

When I was a child, a faithless face
I could not love another for the life of me
All the while you tread so cautiously
So hard to tame the boy who prod our fourth fight of the day
This no-good light of mine
One low-down way to shine
I’d walk away but you’d stay anyway.

Then summer came around and sowed this heat
I’d always let my anger try your patient care
with words that would barrage the worse for wear
even though I could not say exactly what I need
To change this light of mine
and help my spirits shine
I fell through but you’d stay for my reprieve.

So here these days we’d laugh and joke to cry
I guess we’ve grown a while to see the finer years
while leaving room for fables still to hear
In place of all the demons now forever lost to time:
that selfless light I see
who would not dare secede
whose sympathy will stay with me for life.
