lyrics

I stayed away so you could’t tell
In earshot of your wedding bells
Last thing I need
Is someone who knows me well
I use to sleep right in your palms
Lights out with the radio
And I’d wake to wrap
Our love up in a song
I tried to hold you down
And that was wrong

Do you still believe you can change anything
Having to scream when you’d rather sing
Takes a righteous queen
To overthrow a king
But I wouldn't bet against your will
Through every battle fought uphill
I witnessed it then
And I can see it now distilled
It’s nothing anyone could ever kill

I hope you found some light
To spark the flame I never could ignite
I hope you found some light
Wandering through the dark’s not for tonight

If you can’t sleep when your memories collide
Love and pain side by side
Think of me as a step along the path
You’d never even have to ask

I hope you found some light
To spark the flame I never could ignite
I hope you found some light
Wandering through the dark’s not for tonight
I hope you found some light
And wake knowing it’s been worth the fight
