Knew I was falling when I looked inside your eyes. She said, “I know you are, but what am I?” Tell me, have you seen a sunset turn into a sunrise? Kiss right through the night? Cause we should try that sometime. Hold you ‘til the mornin’ and if I said I’m fallin, would you just reply, “I know you are, but what am I?”
I still can’t believe you happened. It came out of no where. A brief conversation over two maybe three days that died out quickly. Turned into a month of not speaking. The usual. But then one random snap.. and everything just happened all at once.
You stole my heart and you stole it quickly. Everything about you makes me so ridiculously happy I want to cry. You deserve the world and everything good in it, I wish you could see that.
It’s all so new. It’s all so insecure. We’re charging through just like we knew for sure which way to turn, and what’s in store. You look at me like I’m your everything. It’s plain to see the blindness love can bring. But while it lasts I won’t change a thing. No I never said it was easy and I never told you you’d know which way to go. But now that you’re here I can promise you wherever you’re going, you’ll never go alone.
I never thought in a million years I’d love someone as much as I love you. I never thought I’d be so one hundred percent sure of someone in my life. I never thought I’d ever see a future for myself, especially with anybody, until you came along.
I knew you were special right away. I knew I loved you not long after. Having to fight back the urge to just say it to you because it felt and still feels so natural and just right was so hard. I’m so glad you said it first and felt the exact same way.
You’ve got destinations calling out your name. Fame and fortune for the restless and the brave. But no matter where you go, look back and you will know. Lighthouse on the sea, that’s all I want to be. I want to lead you safe to shore. Though you sail away, I know there’ll come a day when through the night my light will guide you home.
I’ve never felt so loved before.
The storm it will rage, the waves they will crash. The darkness will make you lose your path. But over it all I just want to be the light that shines so bright, that lighthouse on the sea, that’s all I want to be. I want to lead you safe to shore. Though you sail away, I know there’ll come a day when through the night my light will guide you, and wrong or right my light will guide you and through the night my light will guide you home.
We’ll find our hiding place clear across the Milky Way. Beyond the galaxy on the furthest star that we see. Behold the day she found me here, so near the end of love’s career. I feared every flower that appeared had been uprooted by my peers. But then my autumn prayers were heard, just before the frost emerged. And I’ll have my just deserts when once again I’m next to her.
I dream of oceans blue and wide where we can sail away and leave it all behind in classic fashion. No one to blame us but the tide. Nothing to be blamed for anyway, no reasons we should hide. So I’m gathering my own rotten kindling and I’m gonna make myself a beautiful bonfire. Feel free to join me if you’re angry or you’re lonely or just sick of fearing falling off the wire. Open your eyes and look around. Open your ears and hear the sound. All that we’ve lost will soon be found.
