1. Here With Me

From the recording Here With Me


I’ve got questions
That I keep to myself
Hard and heavy as marble
Dark and deep as a well
I don’t ask for answers
What can anybody say
That could ever make sense of
What we lose on our way

I just want things to be the way they were
I don’t need a tragedy to build my character
I’m as strong now as I want to be
I just want you back
Here with me
Here with me

Forget fairness
Some get more than their share
Of the lonely room
Of the empty chair
Still we all play
The hand that we’re dealt
But only the lucky
Keep what they’ve held

Morning rises
All bird songs and light
You find that you’ve made it
Through another night
But your heart carries
The song sorrow sings
And flowers in April
Don’t change a thing
