Because You

(Don Breithaupt)

So many strong ones
Get lost along the way
Living in afterworlds
And yesterdays
You were the sunlight
When the road was hard to see
And you took your time
On what was left of me

Because you
Walked me out of the rain
Because you
Talked me out of the pain
Because you
Took my heart in your hands
Because you
Brought me back to the dance

Feels like a long time
Since the night was all I knew
Stumbling blind
On Nevermind Avenue
But if I look closely
I can almost see the place
Where we first stood talking
Face to face

Spent a year on the town
Just running dead ends down
Had to drown in the blue
To be ready for you
