I pray for the power to stay in love with you
I pray for the power to stay in love, like you're supposed to be able to
And you may be the cause of this
Yes, you may be the cause of this low grade happiness

Thus, you must behave when you're faced with the way I operate
Be brave when I'm facing away from you, and I don't want to cooperate
'Cause I may be the cause of this
Yes, I may be the cause of this low grade happiness
You're a sweet, unlikely savior of a human falling star
Yes, you are

It didn't work out, but at least we gave it a shot

You're a sweet, unlikely savior
Yes, you are

    General CommentThe first time Rufus performed this song for an audience was the very first concert of his I attended (or at least that's what he told us) so it has a special place in my heart.

    I remember him saying it was about when you have every reason to be happy, but still aren't able to bring yourself there. It's heartbreakingly beautiful.
