Walking out alone
The night fits like a stone inside a bootheel
Hot and cold winds blow
No one's here to know the way that I feel
The corner I once knew brings me into view again
So I could stay out late
Find new bones to break, but then I'd be dragging home admitting

I am because You are I Am
I recognize
Clearly I see
I am because You are I Am
I am in You
You are in me

Spent too many days devising many ways
Trying to escape You
Played too many roles
Dug too many holes just big enough to fall into
And I could linger here
Hoping to disappear in excuses
Come morning's shining face
I'd be crawling to the place I call home
Where first You cut me loose

The places that I've carried You I wouldn't take a dog
Stop and calmly think of that
Tear this church down to its cornerstone and build it up again
Build me up again
