There was a guy making a plan
Find a girl, she'd understand
And say, "Please don't worry"
This one was right, well that was the thing
Closing your eyes, see wedding rings
Well there is no hurry
A day like today, waiting for wings to form
You're waiting for clouds and storms
And for safety
And I said, "I will"
And I ask you please lie still
Your faith means everything

The one thing that I protect
Well don't you know, don't you forget
The sound of my voice
And hands down in the hold I brace
Put your hands on your handsome face
And lie when you say
"I haven't got much, maybe today"
And it's all you won't become
And it's everything you might have done
My dear
Closing in fast on another year

And I will be anxious arms
Beside myself when there's no one else
Would you be my answer then?
Won't you be my answer?
Say it again
(Repeat)

A day like today, waiting for wings to form
You're waiting for clouds and storms
And for safety
And I said, "I will"
And I ask you please lie still
Your faith means everything

And I will be anxious arms
Beside myself when there's no one else
Would you be my answer then?
Won't you be my answer?
Say it again
(Repeat)

Say it again
Say it again
Say it again
Say it again (So unsure until tonight)
Say it again (Strong and pure and know it's right)
Say it again (Today is our whole life)
Say it again

And you care
(And you give what you have and it's all that you've got)
What you have
(And you hope it's enough but you know that it's not)
And you say
(You say)
"Please don't worry"
And you care
(And you tear it apart and you count up the cost)
In your heart
(And your head swims, it all gets lost)
And you say
(You say)
"There is no hurry"
(Repeat)

    General CommentThis song is so perfect; I listened to it every day on my trip in Seattle. My cousin's friends had this cd, and I've been addicted to it ever since!

    General CommentThis is another song I absolutely love by Jealous Sound. It's the only song that creates such a clear picture for me of something so aweful; like a wave of melon choly, but oh so good.
