If I could open all the doors
If I could turn on all the lights
If I had all the strength I though I had
To sleep alone at night
I'd never once have wished for someone
Anyone that wasn't you
I'd never let myself remember
That it was me I never knew
And like the ocean's gentle thunder
Rolling past the sliding door
Every second, every minute
Every moment wanting more
Sinking suns embrace the evening mist
Shadows standing on the wall
I'm not afraid to show my soul to you
Not afraid to stand and fall

And I
Try to turn away
Try so hard to keep myself from wanting you
And oh
I fall into your smile
Tripping over everything I meant to do
To make you stay

Whoever said that love is blind
Could not have seen the starry night
Could not have known the angel's dance at all
And chased the sacred light
And in between the quiet rain
Empty sounds that fill the day
In my arms I try to wrap you
From all my holds you slip away

And I
Try to turn away
Try so hard to keep myself from wanting you
And oh
I fall into your smile
Tripping over everything I meant to do
To make you stay

I won't hold hands
I won't be bruised and broken in
I won't allow this to get heavy and so serious
I won't get close
I won't desire every inch of you
Or reach a deeper part of you
Unless you invite me in
Oh won't you invite me in?

I
Try to turn away
Try so hard to keep myself from wanting you
And oh
I fall into your smile
Tripping over everything I meant to do
To make you stay
