lyrics

A year ago, I said that it was over, and I was wrong.
You went and found your way into another song.
Six years I put barbed wire ‘round this heart of mine,
And promised myself I wouldn’t wait upon a sign,
Because the last time we were here, growing up at us both alive.
But sometimes things come back around.

So if time is what you need, then I will wait for you.
And if you need a miracle, I’ll tear down heaven’s gate for you.
‘Cause there’s this little light aglow in my chest,
That turns into a fire when I’m with you, so I guess
I’ll keep hoping you see what I do:
The best part of me is better when I’m with you.

I got lost staring across a barroom table in your eyes,
Imagining us as partners, as lovers, as allies.
Our hearts are tin cans with strings attached,
So I can hear your melody rattle in my head
It’s what I hum to myself as I lie in bed.
It sounds just like one of mine.
Oh please, let this come back around…

So if time is what you need, then I will wait for you.
And if you need a miracle, I’ll tear down heaven’s gate for you.
‘Cause there’s this little light aglow in my chest,
That turns into a fire when I’m with you, so I guess
I’ll keep hoping you see what I do:
The best part of me is better when I’m with you.

We said our goodbyes as our tempest swirled,
And I saw my own share of the world.
Now I know there’s nothing that compares to you.
Well, you love the word catastrophe,
But that’s not how it plays out for you and me.
Not when we can paint our masterpiece.
Not when you’ll always mean this much to me.

And they said “Boy if you can’t hear the music swell,
Then you’d better write some for yourself”
