We haven't talked in almost two years
But I heard your voice tonight
And was startled by its disrepair
Your rusty hollow words
Did not touch my well oiled open heart

I saw my responsibility in her eyes
A need to make it better
And all you saw was worms

My love comes naturally
Not because, but despite, you
It's okay to find the faith to saunter forward
With no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
And you'll breathe easier just knowing
that the worst is all behind you
And the waves that tossed the raft all night
have set you on dry land
