Lately I’ve been out here reckless, switching lanes
Pulling ninety to one-hundred on slicks in the blinding rain
I keep praying this won’t end up the same
I swear I love you, but I’m not to blame
I swear I love you ’cause you numbed the pain
I once chewed on haunted fears then blithely went insane
Your unyielding deep compassion’s been my Novocain
A blissful revelation that confounds a rational brain
A blissful revelation I can no longer live without
So I talk to the sky all night, trying to figure out—
Why do we see darkness in the daylight? What’s this all about?
Could we be the quiet storm to end a lifelong drought?
Could we be the quiet storm to rise and finally end this mess?
The trophy for internal warfare’s humbling madness… I guess
Maybe it’s because we aren’t like anyone else
We love people better than we’ve ever learned to love ourselves
We love people better than we probably should
Wouldn’t change a single thing about us even if we could
‘Cause we’re both just yearning for something good
The good in people, love, and life
A better world, no hate, no pain or strife
All we’ve ever really wanted is this dream we share
So, I’m willing to pull over if you’ll take me there.
