I could be the perfect lover if you let me
I could be the only thing you've ever known
I could scream out all your lonely heart's desires
I could hold all your life's pain inside my own

I could bring the clouds for you to walk among them
I could raise the seas for them to know your grace
I could teach the Gods of all your Autumn's glory
I could bring the Summer stars to know your face

But if I come again and only as a friend
Would you still know the way my heart is pourin' out
Or would you laugh aloud, an angel all too proud
To ever be lonely again

I been locked up here with all these lonesome questions
I need a new word just to whisper in your ear
Baby right now I am open to suggestions
I'm gonna tell you all the things you need to hear

There's a mirror in my room with no reflection
There's a table where your friends have gathered 'round
There's a doorway that my heart could never walkthrough
There's a graveyard full of times I let you down

But if I come again and only as a friend
Would you still know the way my heart is pourin' out
Or would you laugh aloud, an angel all too proud
To ever be lonely again
