Shallow lines and promises I give you none.
I wouldn’t die without you; you’re not the only one.
I don’t think you’re perfect; you don’t worship me, but
All we’ve got is who we are and who we’re gonna be.
You’re the sunshine through a thunderstorm,
The porch light on a foggy night when I’m
You’re the candle when the power’s out,
The moonlight from behind the clouds.
That’s who you are, that’s who you are to me.
There are things about us that we’d rather hide
Working themselves out from where we’ve had them
But years ago we vowed we’d never shy away;
We’re not always happy but ever after starts today.
When I’m down you hold me through the
You push the shadows back until the morning light.
