I'd give you up just to get things started
How would I know if the sky was falling right to your door

This is a gift
If a gift's departed
You'll never know if the sky was falling
Now that you're sure

You know you'd better not laugh
You had better be something

This is a letter to feelings that you had sown
There's no reason or rhetoric answer, love

You will see when I mean cathartic
Now you know the sky is falling right to your door

So save me lady
Open up and give it with some grace
Hold on to me
Give me one good reason to be here

So now that it's time to say
Give yourself to someone else
We've given our god the pain
Ease yourself on something else
I know that you'll try

So I will give my reasons instead
Now I know what keeps me here

Love, you're better for me

    Song FactAt 4:02 in the video of their song "Belief", the dude in the car holds a piece of paper in his hand with the text "you keep me here". Not sure how it relates to this song, though.
