On bended knee
I’ve looked through every window then.
Touched the bottom,
The night a sleepless day instead;

A day when love came,
Came easy like what’s lost now found.
Beneath a blinding light
That would surround.

We were without, in doubt,
(and now) we were about saving for a rainy day.

I crashed through mirrors,
I crashed through floors of laughter then.
In a blind scene,
No ties would moor us to this room.

A day when love came,
Came easy like what’s lost now found.
And you would save me,
And I held you like you were my child.

If I were you, defiant you,
Alone upon a troubled way.
I would send my heart to you
To save it for a rainy day.
