Time takes care of the wound

So I can believe

You had so much to give

You thought I couldn't see

Gifts for boot heels to crush

Promises deceived

I had to send it away

To bring us back again

Your eyes and body brighten

Silent waters, deep

Your precious daughter in the

Other room, asleep

A kiss "Goodnight" from every

Stranger that I meet

I had to send it away

To bring us back again

Morning theft

Unpretender left


True self is what

Brought you here, to me

A place where we can

Accept this love

Friendship battered down by

Useless history

Unexamined failure

But what am I still to you

Some thief who stole from you?

Or, some fool drama queen

Whose chances were few?

That brings us to who we need

A place where we can save

A heart that beats as

Both siphon and reservoir

You're a woman, I'm a calf

You're a window, I'm a knife

We come together

Making chance in the starlight

Meet me tomorrow night

Or any day you want

I have no right to wonder

Just how, or when

You know the meaning fits

There's no relief in this

I miss my beautiful friend

I have to send it away

To bring her back again
