  1. Saving You

Lyrics

You’d run out of final chances
I was in the throes of grief
Escaping hopeless circumstances
My despair was your reprieve

Face devoid of all expression
Teeth bared, you let no one near
Met your monsters with aggression
Rising from a deep set fear

(Chorus) Who could know – Who could see
Saving you would rescue me – rescue me
But given love, given time
You found your hope and I found mine

Such a trove of contradictions
Soft fur begging to be touched
You shied away from affection
Seeking treats, you turned down hugs

Timely gifts we gave the other
You were lifted from your plight
Sweet reward for our patience
To see your eyes reclaim their light

Who would know – Who could see
Saving you would rescue me- rescue me
But given love, given time
You found your hope and I found mine
I learned to bend expectations
Knew we’d taken on a lot
But I’d do it again, no hesitation
For those eyes spoke what words could not

Reaching out past no tomorrows
As the coils of pain untwined
Beyond fear, beyond the sorrow
You found your hope and I found mine

Who could know – Who could see
Saving you would rescue me – rescue me
And given love, given time
You found your hope and I found mine
You found your hope and I found mine
