There’s paper scattered on the lawn, birds up on the line
There’s letters left unopened here that never is the time
There’s messages I should return and people I should call
I’m still tripping over echoes left lying in the hall
There’s a light comes through the darkness slowly to my eyes
You can fall back here forever, I just never realized
Oh time won’t let me go
And every night I know

That you could pull me through
You could always pull me through
Even when I’m lying here drowning in my blues
You take the sting out of the rain
And bring the sun back up again
And you could always pull me through

Oh we stood outside together and we laughed like ancient friends
Then we laid down in a field just where the road begins and ends
Well I see you in the mirror and I watch you from a far
My friends all think I’m crazy but I know the way things are
Outside I hear voices underneath the moon
But I’m grateful for whatever breaks the silence of this room
Oh time won’t let me go
And every night I know

That you could pull me through
You could always pull me through
Even when I’m lying here drowning in my blues
You take the sting out of the rain
And bring the sun back up again
darling you could always pull me through


I hope you’re traveling well now and there’s stars over your head
And I hope the river carries you everywhere you said
Well I miss the way you look at me, the way you wear your hair
And I miss the conversations we left hanging in the air
Oh late at night I wake up, wonder what’s been done
But I know our life together will go on and on


You could pull me through
You could always pull me through
Wrap your arms around me and chase away my blues
You take the sting out of the rain
And bring the sun back up again
And you could always pull me through
You could always pull me through

    General CommentHave seen Jim as well as Blue Rodeo many many times. Last time I saw Jim was in a bar in Whitby Ontario when he was releasing this album. When he sang this song he told us that it was a result of watching his uncle go through losing his aunt. At the funeral Jim thought about what it meant for his uncle to have to go on alone. It makes me think about that terrible day when I will have to be without my own love.
