It sounds like this is nothing new
And that it hasn't been for a while
You wake up on the other side
And you strain to force a smile
The fairytale inside your head has become
Your new best friend
But I can assure you that I'll be there
Before the story ends

Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

I'm racing to the finish line
Of a lifetime that's barely started
The peace of mind I left behind
I pray you'll keep in your perfect garden
You're waiting on a minute hand
In a countdown that lasts for days
But I'm here to tell you it won't be long
Before I'm here to stay

Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

The weightlessness
And the lack of rest
Away from you
I'm in over my head
Even when it's dark before the dawn
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

Even when it's dark before the down
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

    But for the grace of god there is weightlessnes and lack of rest. God is there to hang your heart on when it is dark. He is the only light. Only by his grace can we cary on.

    He is going to leave his wife and come to her when he can get it worked out... Telling her to hang on until he can resolve all issues with his current life and he will be there with her, he promises.
