I called you up you were in bed
Could barely make out the words that you said
But you wanted to see me instead
So I got dressed

And I stepped out into the snow
And walked for a mile or so
Felt the rush of blood come from the cold
In my chest

Well you finally came to the door
And we talked for an hour or more
Until I asked if you would stay up til 4
You said "that's fine

But there's something I have to say
And I can't because I'm just so afraid"
And so I held you as you started to shake
That night

Oh my dear
I will wait for you
And grace tonight
Will pull us through

Until the tears have left your eyes
Until the fear can sleep at night
Until the demons that you're scared of
Disappear in sight
Until this guilt begins to crack
And the weight falls from your back
Oh my dear, I'll keep you in my arms tonight

You slowly lifted your head from your hands
You said "I just don't think that you'll understand
You'll never look at me that way again
If you knew what I did"

And so your tears fell and melted the snow
You told me secrets nobody had known
But I never loved you more even though
Now I knew what you did

Oh my dear
I will wait for you
And grace tonight
Will pull us through
(Repeat whole thing 2X)

Until the tears have left your eyes
Until the fear can sleep at night
Until the demons that you're scared of
Disappear in sight
Until this guilt begins to crack
And the weight falls from your back
Oh my dear, I'll keep you in my arms tonight
(Repeat whole thing 2X)

I'll keep you in my arms tonight...
