lyrics

I was just a silhouette.
None of the color had happened yet.
But you can't want something you don't know.

You were carrying a spark -
a fire inside of a guarded heart.
You can't choose where these things can go.

We were loving sight unseen,
all matches and tinder and gasoline.
We burned it hot, then we burned it slow.

The tie that binds grew frayed and frail
and we fought each other tooth and nail,
and hurt the thing we had tried to grow.

We discarded all our thoughts,
then discovered each other in the dark
and got swept up in the river's flow.

We dug our heels in side by side
and uncovered the bruises we used to hide,
if only to know and to be known.

Some day you're gonna bury me
and skew our line of symmetry.
But you can't regret when a thing hits home.

I was just a silhouette.
None of the color had happened yet.
But you can't want something you don't know.
