Ember

 

I’ll build the coziest lantern

To help you cross the ocean

I want to keep you dry

I want to keep the spark

And if the storm is hitting

I’ll try to keep you steady

And if I feel I‘m shaking

I would return to practice

 

And if my arm is hurting

And I if I need to rest

We’d have to switch positions

And you would do it well

We’d light the darkest forest

Brighten our darkest sins

We’d light the deepest cave and

Enlight the deepest meanings

 

You know I gave my breath so I could feed it

I blew too hard I thought I killed it

I saw an ember hidden in the ashes

I’ll blow again if it can be ignited

 

I’d build the strongest walls

(So you could feel protected)

Made of the purest glass

(Cause you simply deserve it)

I‘ll build the coziest home

(And we would learn to live in)

Made of the purest love

(Cause you simply deserve it)

 

And you could hear the rain banging the ceiling

And not a single drop could stain our feelings

And you could hear the rain banging the ceiling

And not a single drop could stain our feelings

 

You gave me your trust cause you knew I could keep it

The fire’s so pure we could learn how to drink it

You gave me your heart cause you knew I could light it

Cause you know, cause you know

Cause you know, cause you know

Cause you know, cause you know

Oh, cause you know, cause you know
