lyrics

Outside the sun is shining, it's my birthday once again
Phone calls, cards, and letters, best wishes from my friends
Talking to my brother on the telephone today
"Is there something that you need? I could send it off your way..."
I wish that I could tell him, "Yeah, there's something you could send"
"Like an answer, a correction or a key"
And, I hope I can protect you from whatever's 'round the bend
I'll do my best, whatever it may be

(Chorus)

I'd give up all my years just to dry away your tears
That you might find some comfort, that you might have your time
I'd do anything for you, it ain't some empty platitude
More a cry of desperation in the nite
"Won't you be alright..."

The light shines through our windows, every morning every day
You paint a perfect picture, and you give it back to me
You always were unlikely, but I never doubted you
Such strength behind the beauty and you always speak the truth
You and me, the lucky ones, even in our darkest hour
We'll fight the beast as others taste the tea
The two of us together, darling, every minute matters now
We can see that that's the way that it should always be

(Chorus)
