If I were a mirror
I'd look right deep inside myself
And if things were much clearer
I'd see a brighter day
And if you were my lover
I'd wrap your locks around my wrists
And shake beneath the shudders
That turn to black your faith

For you know that life is neverending
Sometimes the miles seem to long to try
I've got a love
She is my anchor
She held me down
And saved my soul
So take the blood, and hate, and anger
And let it go

If I were the summer
I'd give my light to all the world
And wake you in your slumber
So you could see my eyes
And as your feelings crumbled
And all the words I keep will twirl
I'll catch you in your tumble
And kiss your face goodbye

For you know that life is neverending
Sometimes the miles just seem to long to try
But I've got a love
She is my anchor
She held me down
And saved my soul
So take the blood, and hate, and anger
And let it go

If I were made of water
I'd slip my bones into the cracks
And freeze when it got colder
To hold the walls in true
And when it came to summer
I'd slip my soul into the yard
And give life to the flowers
That I never gave to you

But I know that life is neverending
Sometimes the miles can cut you down to size
But I had a love
She was my anchor
She held me down
And saved my soul
So take the blood you never gave her
And let it go

    General CommentI have what I thought was a complete collection of demos, live recordings and stuff. Where does this song come from? I'd love to hear it.
