How you defended me when everybody put me down
How you upended me put my feet back on the ground
Dependent on your reaction to understand what was behind my back and
god it hurts so bad to leave behind the good
If i could take you with me baby you know I would

cause it is lonely trying to run free
It is only on faith that i spend each night alone
Words and pictures tossed away to show there can be room for change
there is never just one place we all dwell in
Keep wanting to fall asleep in your arms again

Cause your support of my fighting hit me like lightning
If i hadn't found you i wouldn't be lost again
People fought to find their way in but even the best parts of where we've been
isn't good enough for me for you anymore
But if we break the frame we don't have to close the door

Lillies grow up from the muck and mire
I'm gonna build you a castle in the sky
filled with pillows on which everyday you'll rest your head
Take the time to make your golden wedding bed
If i hadn't found you i wouldn't be lost again
Gonna take the time to build your golden wedding bed
