From night til dawn, you soldiered on, did ya?
Each day is a gift
But you lead us strong and kept us on, did ya?
Like each day is a gift
I never thought that I'd be here with you
Saying all these words that I have to
After all is said and all is done
I never meant to ever hurt no one
And nothing has to change
You and I are strange
Passing in the night between the darkness and the rain

At the crack of dawn, you grabbed my arm did ya?
Each day was a gift
You told me slow
Before I move on you must remember
Each day is a gift
I never understood it was for you
Could never be for me
This will have to do
Yet after all you've said and all you've done
I know you never meant to hurt no one
And nothing has to change
You and I are strange
Passing in the night between the darkness and the rain
Nothing has to change
You and I can be strange
Passing in the days between the morning and the rain
I can see you now, it's like you're never gone

From dusk til dawn, you soldiered on
Like each day was a gift
Oh you lead us strong but you couldn't hold on
And that's fine cause each day was a gift

I don't know when I'll be home
So save a place for me til I get there
I don't know when I'll be home
So save a place for me

    I think this song is about a man coming to terms with the death of his lover and how he sees how she was strong for them trying to prepare him for when she is gone. To treasure each other while you can because each day together is a gift. He is with her when she passes and he tells her even after she is gone to save a place for him for when it's his time to go home and be with her again.
