Time takes care of the wound
So I can believe
You had so much to give
You thought I couldn't see

Gifts for bootheels to crush
Promises, deceit
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

Your eyes and body brighten
Silent waters deep
Your precious daughter in the
Other room asleep

A kiss goodnight from every
Stranger that I meet
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

Morning theft
Unpretender left
Ungraceful

True self is what
Brought you here, to me
A place where we can
Accept this love

Friendship battered down by
Useless history
Unexamined failure

But what am I still to you
Come thief who stole from you
Or some fool drama queen
Whose chances were few?

Love brings us to who we need
A place where we can save
A heart that beats
As both siphon and reservoir

You're a woman, I'm a calf
You're a window, I'm a knife
We come together
Making chance in the starlight

Meet me tomorrow night
Or any day you want
I have no more right to wonder
Just how or when

And though the meaning fits
There's no relief in this
I miss my beautiful friend

I had to send it away
To bring her back again
