In this spare room

we better see what we have and whom

An I.O.U. for the Same Thing

Only angels have wings, so they say

Here I stand, alive unto you

My fate's mercy seat

sought blood to gulp and flesh to eat

And I can't blame you enough

but I'm indepted to your mercy and your love

Here I stand, alive unto

alive unto you

because you saved my life

Now I see there's so much to lose

so much to lose

becasue you saved my life

Darling, now I

must live for you

One reprieve grants another

until each world is born anew

Never understand, never can ignore

I'm rotten to the core, since 1994

    General CommentIt's when someone shows you that your life is worth something. Regardless of whether you wanted to feel like your life has any value, you feel that way now because you are loved, and this song is trying to explain how grateful you are to that loving person.

    It's funny how some of the lyrics could be from a christian song... like we make our partners out to be gods.

    And yeah, I think this song is great.

    General CommentI think this song has a feeling of two people functioning as one, relying on each other. Very beautiful and soft.

    I was born in 1994, making that line a cherry on top of the cake that is this beautiful song.
