Today I feel like I'm evolving
Taking two stairs at a time
Learning to love you and to keep you
As a staple in my mind
Well I never met a woman
So afraid she'd never grow out of a girl

I will see you in the morning
With your words across my eyes
And I will learn the things I can
When out your bed you finally rise
And I will tell you of my travels
Now I know more and I'm considering the world
Well I never met a woman
So afraid she'd ever grow out of a girl

You make me wonder about my fate
I have been shaken by your sensitivity
Cause I am vulnerable but I am strong
And I wrong sometimes

And since the day that I was born
I wanted to be aged and worn
Hoping for callous and for burn
Hoping there was something I could learn
Can you feel me now?
Can you feel me whisper in your ear?
The things you think you fear?

I used to dream that I had cancer
Just so I knew how it felt
I still wonder now and then
But seeing the pain that it has dealt
Well I lost a friend of mine
Out in Arizona quite some time ago

And since then I've been more careful
'Bout the things I do or say
I will keep my lover close to me
Until I see the day that I must answer for my words
And gain perspective on my placement in the world
Well I never met a woman
who I loved, I end up finding I don't care

But you make me wonder about fact
You make me wonder if I'll take you back again
Cause I am vulnerable but I am strong
and I am wrong a lot
And I cannot keep you off mind
I have tried but you come right back in again
Cause you are shaken and I am scared
And I will care for you

Jillian we are nothing without faith
We must try harder than we said
We thought we could
Cause you are scared and I am home
You're not alone now dear
(You're not alone now dear)

Now I've been running for a while
My vicious drive has finally tired
I want to settle in my skin I am a man now not a child
Can you feel me now? Can you feel me
Brush against your skin
My fingers are knocking once again
But you will never let me in

    General CommentThis is my favorite RCE song and one of my favorite songs period. It hits so hard and it is very well written. So many verses are relatable.

    Song MeaningJoe posted this in a blog once,

    "...It is about a girl I went on a few dates with named Jillian. She was never interested in anything serious transpiring between us. That upset me, and I ended up writing that song. It all kind of came out at once. There are a couple different thoughts about a few people in there, but that’s the gist of the song."
