Everything


You asked me to come home
I thought it would be easy
I traveled for a day, a month, a year
Somehow a lifetime went by
Footsteps forward: were they toward you?
Yes, I saw you
Vaguely, at first not realizing

I asked you what to say
I thought it would be easy
I guess I spoke too fast, too much, too soon
Sometimes I'm too quick with words
Tell me words that you'd prefer
Yes, I heard you: Silence
In the cold dark of mourning

And I'll give everything I have, I said
Not knowing what it meant
I'll give everything I have, I said
So confidently

I could not find my way
I thought it would be easy
I could not see far enough to know
If I still knew right from wrong
Memories of you not enough
Yes, I loved you
Can I still
Sing you a love song?

And I'll give everything I have, I said
Not knowing what it meant
I'll give everything I have, I said
So confidently
I'll give everything I have, I said
Not knowing what it meant
I'll give everything I have, I said
So confidently

You asked me to come home
I thought it would be easy
I traveled for a day, a month, a year
Somehow a lifetime went by
Footsteps forward: were they toward you?
Yes -- I saw you
