You were the silhouette
Shivering shadow in the middle of ash and snow
I took your fevered hands
Felt like embers of the world's dying glow
You were feather light
As I carried you quietly through the crumbling streets
And in the fading light
I could see in your eyes that somehow we were meant to meet

But would stay with me
If you thought the war was over?
And everything made right
Would you still believe in us?
Or would your love for me grow colder?
With no one left to fight
Would you stay with me?
Would you stay with me?

After the fever left
Together we scavenged through the city and her scars
When the day would end
Bar the door against the demons and the dark
Share a can of something
And a bottle of bourbon I had hid away
It warmed me from within
And you from without till I forget the chill in the breeze

It seems like every night
We lie in bed and worry
That the world would start to bleed
Now I'm terrified
If indeed we start to ask if what we have is real
