Lyrics

Days of strife and winter nights
Seem so unkind I pull the blind.
I never look?. I never see? I never ask if maybe
You called out for me.
And through the quiet moments that keep me from my sleep,
I?m thinking of you, do you care.
I?m thinking of things so stark and bare.
Through the light of darkness,
I come upon this truth?
I love you.

Street lights filter through my room,
It seems so bright without the light.
Sleep comes in waves? of yesterdays? and I think of ways to make you
Want for me.
Not testing any water before I make my leap.
I?m thinking of you, do you care.
I?m thinking of things so stark and bare.
Through the light of darkness,
I come upon this truth?
I love you.

And snowflakes, they make you happy.
I see sunshine in your eyes.
Could those clouds on that horizon be a disguise.

Cuddled warmth within my bed,
A nighttime glow for me to know,
But blankets slip away from me, so I pull up all my yesterdays,
Around me.
Still knowing that your promises, they would not help me sleep.
I?m thinking of you, do you care.
I?m thinking of things so stark and bare.
Through the light of darkness,
I come upon this truth?
I love you.
