lyrics

How could we not have seen
The men we would become and not just the boys we’d been
Oh, all we ever recognize
Is every foolish thought, we’d held as such a prize
But then I look to you
And see the kind of truth I’d hold above my head
A crown above the fools
Love, take me at my word
Pull it from my lips and with your measured touch, relieve it of its dirt

Wait, and wait for me
Not for some other kind of man, who only knows to flee Take all this
All you can see
I’d give my self away, but it won’t make me free
For now I’m yours, and yours I’ll be
So come and rest your head

Lies only took us far
And drove a line
Through the center of who we are
All those days wore heavy cloaks
And etched into your face
The words you never spoke
Then, the city held us close
And through its jagged streets we wandered back to love, a sun that only rose Oh, show me who I am
With your voice reveal my name and give it weight, so I may simply stand

Wait, and wait for me
Not for some other kind of man, who only knows to flee Take all this Take all you see
I’d give my self away, but it won’t make me free
For now I’m yours, and yours I’ll be
It’s all we ever said
