Lyrics

The thorn in my side is gone
It was too busy for the laws of the world
Like my need for you,
I know it doesn't register on the scale of the world
When they talk about strength they usually mean
The way that blood sticks to the hand
When they talk about strength I know
They don't mean a touch that only love understands

And I'll never leave you
I'll never leave you
Love never lies
I swear you could see me
I swear you could see me
If you could open your eyes

There's a beast in the trees
As old as song dogging my heart
Step by step
I begged it to leave me with something
'Cause my fear was like a wind
Tearing the song from my breath

And I'll never leave you
I'll never leave you
Love never lies
I swear you could see me
I swear you could see me
If you could open your eyes
