I called you up, you were in bed
Could barely make out the words that you said
But you wanted to see me instead so I got dressed
Then I stepped out into the snow
And walked for a mile or so
Felt the rush of blood come from the cold in my chest
You finally came to the door
And we talked for an hour or more
Until I asked if you would stay up till four
You said, "That's fine."
But you said, "There's something I have to say,
And I can't because I'm just so afraid."
And so I held you as you started to shake that night
Oh, my dear I'll wait for you
Grace tonight will pull us through
Until the tears have left your eyes
Until the fears can sleep at night
Until the demons that you're scared of disappear inside
Until this guilt begins to crack and the weight falls from your back
Oh, my dear I'll keep you in my arms tonight
You slowly lifted your head from your hands
You said, "I just don't think that you'll understand,
You'll never look at me that way again if you knew what I did."
And so your tears fell and melted the snow
You told me secrets nobody had known
But I never loved you more even though now I knew what you did
