the places we’ve been to these past seven years seem so far.
and the way that we came to be here, where we are, seemed so hard.
and maybe i’m not in my right to long for peace in your eyes,
but baby, i know you’re not right …
if only the love that you’d feel for me, you’d feel for you.
you made it easy for me to give myself up.
you leaned out for me,
and you never changed, did you, my love?
and after the pain came a peace;
then a happiness like we’ve never known.
so help me to help you and say for me,
after all that you did for me, what can i do?
i could find a way.
i would do anything;
and i would never let you go.
open my eyes and let me see you shining.
and maybe, one move at a time, you’d learn to love yourself again.
i’d take you in my longing arms and try forever;
please be happy, my love.
and all of the pain in your life, i’d make it better;
and all that you do, i’d make it matter;
matter to me and to you.
and in my way i’ve only tried to love you more.
i opened everything …
now open your eyes.
can you see me shining?
