lyrics

I’m Here For You

you stayed where you were
you didn’t back down
you tended your garden
went out on the town
you worked hard for others
and gave them your best
you put up new curtains
you bought a new dress

you looked in the mirror
examined your face
made sure not to drive
too close to his place
threw open your windows
and ran like the wind
so many futures
you’d hoped to let in

but when it all came down
on that beautiful day
though he’d meant to be true
he just couldn’t say
“I’m here for you”

it wasn’t the first time, he was
back more than twice
so you filled up your kitchen
with apples and spice
with children and music
and bright cups of tea
and always a welcome
for someone like me

and then when your memories
came on you so strong
you’d pack up your suitcase
fly into the dawn
with clouds as your comfort
and tears in your eyes
be in rio by nightfall, and
dance until sunrise
