the view from our front porch changes every day
they stack bricks on top of concrete
and they haul the rest away
we wake up every morning to the sound of their machines
and i think i might go crazy without you lying next to me

i am not ashamed of my sadness or my fear
about where we are today and where we'll be in 50 years
but it's you who keeps me sane who gives me hope who keeps me clear
on why we should keep doing what we do even if the end is near

sometimes the sunsets somewhat terrify me
they're beautiful and colorful but not the way they used to be
when the scariest statistics are racing through my head
at least i know when you get home you'll tie me to the bed
and i'll forget all about hopelessness
and feel hopelessly in love
for an instant i remember
all the dreams i've ever had
it's not escape, it's ecstasy
it's never felt so right to me
i have so much more hope now that
there's someone here to fight with me

‘cause what the end has in store
will be no match for you and i
we're not afraid to be afraid
or to just break down and cry
and we may be overwhelmed
but we won't be immobilized
and together i think we can
touch this world before we die

i am not ashamed of my sadness or my fear
about where we are today and where we'll be in 50 years
but it's you who keeps me sane who gives me hope who keeps me clear
on why we should keep doing what we do
why we should keep doing what we do
why we must keep doing what we do
even if the end is near
