i can't make anything
of why the brightest light fades
or how you slept a sleepless slumber
and through the rhythm of the timeless season
and you are the dark on my soul
and it's your love that i steal
and you're my cuts that won't close
and this i'm certain
and this i'm certain
and this i'm certain
i don't see anything
through all your worries
and the worst in people
and you're the builder of your own high temple
and that's the magic of your mind
and you're the reason that i'm down
but you're the promise that i found
and you're all that i got
who's the meanest
and who's a genius
and who's mine
and from the bed you lay and wonder
and from the morning come like thunder
it's the downfall of your time
and you're the dark of our home
but still the home that i feel won't let up
or let go
and this i'm certain
and this i'm certain

    General Commentthis song is really heartfelt on a mature level. if someone were to ask me what true love is, i would probably just tell them to listen to this song.

    it amazes me how few people have ever heard this song.

    General Commenti think this song is about how a girl meant absolutely everything to him; he so reveres her that she even becomes an idealized caricature of herself; so great that he almost resents it, but at the end of the day his love for her overcomes even that resentment

    this is one of RHP's better songs, i think

    General Commentbuenos, you're right about it possibly being the best unknown song. it's a sort of privilege to know it at all :). great melody, great heartfelt lyrics...

    i think i got a more correct version here, tho (look closely for differences):

    i can't make anything
    of why the brightest light faded
    or how you slept a sleepless slumber
    and through the rhythm of the timeless season
    and you are the dark on my soul
    and it's your love that i steal
    and you're my cuts that won't close

    and this i'm certain
    and this i'm certain
    and this i'm certain

    i don't see anything
    through all your worries and the worst in people
    and you're the builder of your own high temple
    and that's the magic of your mind
    and you're the reason that i'm down
    but you're the promise that i found
    and you're all that i got

    who's the meanest
    and who's a genius
    and who's mine

    i can't take anything
    and from the bed you lay and wonder
    and from the morning come like thunder
    it's the downfall of your time
    and you're the dark of our home
    but still the home that i feel won't let up
    or let go

    and this i'm certain
    and this i'm certain
    and this i'm certain

    General CommentI think it's just about living with someone for a few years, how difficult it is and how it's very tough to leave such a situation. "I can't anything of why the brightest light fades."
