lyrics

if i've ever known deep love outside the arms of
family, outside the forever warmth of my childhood home, well you know,
it'd be you and me -
we've been laid bare.
it's taken some re-defining, re-alligning,
but we did it as a pair

and you believe in me all those months that i barely
felt like a person, when we drove to philadelphia to see my little sister
in the hospital
all lost and scared, yeah, it took forfeiting hunger
all our wondering in massachusetts air.

you have loved the worst of me
you've surveyed my darkest dreams
and all my sunken sceneries and heavy wings, oh,
but i can lay me down to rest and know that
you still think i'm the best, and that means everything.

we were warned in high school by our seussian hometown sage
that in order to know true beauty, deep life we'd have to bury ourselves
first. dense, dark and hurt we'd have to
grow back green and slow, aching toward the light from
underneath the dirt.

and we lived in the space that yawned between manhattan and the
breath of the berkshires, where we warred with hidden cavities
our bodies had so coveted before -
run tired and sore, it seemed that every holy hallway we walked down
there stood a demon at the door.

you have loved the worst of me
you've surveyed my darkest dreams
and all my sunken sceneries and heavy wings, oh,
but i can lay me down to rest and know that
you still think i'm the best, and that means everything.

so friend, when your vision begs to fade, you can
think on this tiny world you saved
and how she thanks her lucky stars -

know that you have the soul of a lighthouse,
you're a white knight in the
dark ©
