In my heart lies a desert
That has glorified the rain
From the downpour of water
To the reason for my pain

There's a price to kindness
There's a bridge I've yet to cross
Where the downpour of silence
Is the reason we get lost

And find me a partner that can stand the way I shake
On the paths of my framework
From the laughter to the lake

Oh I try be clever
Oh I try to be good
Oh I messed up the same way
That I always knew I would

There was dirt on the carpet
There was freedom in the smile
Of the one I chased after
Oh you sat there all the while

I don't claim to be more than I ever have been
But at night I was badness
Oh that night I was framed
Oh that night I was madness
Oh that night I was shamed

[So you will change today.
The lights you so frequently cover will begin to shine again.
The pathways you tread so blindly will start to have purpose, or disappear.
The drastic decisiveness that you must learn to inherit will make its first cautious journey upwards into your neglected but patient soul.
I would like to be your friend.
Life, the gift you so often squander, is precious as it has always been.
And faith, though hidden, still sits above your head.
So pull back the murky curtains.
Go wash and purge those demons clean.
Today is the first day, as they have always been.
And today, on you, you will begin again to love thyself with joy.]

Oh, stay with me my baby
I know I'm not an easy ride
But I'll do anything to keep you
To keep you by my side

Oh, stay with me my baby
I know I'm not an easy ride
But I'll do anything to keep you
By my side

I may not ever find the one
I spend my whole life trying to run
But I can't let a good thing die
I'm gonna fight for you and I

I may not ever find the one (stay with me my baby...)
I spend my whole life trying to run (I know I'm not an easy ride...)
But I can't let a good thing die (but I'll do anything to keep you...)
I'm gonna fight for you and I (by my side...)

I may not ever find the one
I spend my whole life trying to run
But I can't let a good thing die
I'm gonna fight for you and I

Oh, stay with me my baby
I know I'm not an easy ride
But I'll do anything to keep you
To keep you by my side

Oh what's the point in moving
When you don't have a place to go
I might never come home, I might never come home

    General CommentThis song is so amazing it's unbelievable. I get a euphoric rush once the guitars come in during the text-to-speech converter's segment.
