if I knew where love would get me
I’d have turned that car around
I saw each sign & exit
but I could not make a sound
then the road became a river
and this boat she ran aground

the running kept me holy
but the winter wind was wild
in a city paved with lonely
I sought comfort for a while
then your blue eyes and soft blankets
took me in just like a child

I wanna love you love you love you
like I’ve never known pain
but this february rain keeps coming down
if I could hold it all above you like an Atlas of sorts
would you say to me “of course I’ll stick around”
‘cuz you’re the best thing I have found

my poetry deserts me
in my time of greatest need
no twisted rhyme could testify to
what’s been tangled up in me
but when I fear I’ll float into the sun
baby you’re my gravity

I wanna love you love you love you
like I’ve never known pain
but this february rain keeps coming down
if I could hold it all above you like an Atlas of sorts
would you say to me “of course I’ll stick around”
‘cuz you’re the best thing I have found

It’s no great consolation to have crossed the world alone
Some days a car’s a car and a boat is just a boat
There’s no better destination
than the sum of all our fears
So come on baby let me sing it sweetly in your ear

I wanna love you love you love you
like I’ve never known pain
but this february rain keeps coming down
if I could hold it all above you like an Atlas of sorts
would you say to me “of course I’ll stick around”
‘cuz you’re the best thing I have found
the best thing I have found
