Sunlight scares you, the sunlight will not hurt you,
Yeah, it hurts to hear you cry
I wish I was fit to ease you

The night will take me
No, the night will soothe you
The night will swell inside you
I won’t leave you till you ask

No, I’ll sit here by the bed, dear, with these photographs
And you
Well I just hope your dreams can touch you like I tried
Someone’s holding you in memories
Much closer than I’ll ever be
So yeah, some day soon I will leave
But not tonight

Somethin hurt you, something got you bleeding
Yeah, but it’s been healin for a year now
Maybe more
Just that sometimes I think maybe feelin something
Well it sure beats feelin nothing
So I’ll go pickin at the wounds

And then from some place, somewhere, sometime
I catch glimpses of promises
Promises I took for granted, and yeah, I miss them
And so I’m scared to let you in
Just like you’re scared to push me out
It’s gonna happen someday soon
But not tonight

Will you hold me? Just a second?
Yeah, I’ll hold you
An I’m tryin not to tell you how safe you make me feel
She fell asleep against my shoulder
Felt her dreamin
And I tried to keep from cryin
Least I was done before she woke

And when she woke up, yeah she kissed me and took my hand
Said thank you
And I said nothing, but yeah I need her,
And yeah, I’m scared
Cause she needs someone to depend upon
I’m dependent upon her
She needed me just then
But maybe not tonight
