You were used to being looked at, Darling, I could see that it was true
As I'm sitting here, across from you, inside this room, I'm looking, too
I am not shy, Baby, I'm looking, too

What'd you learn from him I ask you, you say "Everything and Nothing"
I say, "Darling, I wish that you could hear me now"
Hear me now, hear me now, hear me now
Yeah, just once again somehow

But, no matter if you hear 'em, I will own these words I sing
They mean just what I want 'em to, y'know, they might mean anything
And, maybe, i am not the player that I want to be, but, I dig the one I am
I am, I am, I am, yes, I dig the one I am...

I wish you Patience and the Time to learn it, Darling
I wish you Time, I wish you Time, I wish you Time

Maybe, finally I'm the singer that you wanted me to be
But, if I have slept in weeks, my Dear, it comes as news to me
Yeah, if I have slept at all, Dear, I must be just too tired to see
I'm too tired to see... I must be just too tired to see...

I thank you for allowing me my mishaps and mistakes
I should've been home early, Darling, now it's getting really late
I know it's late, it's late, it's late
Yes, it's getting really late

I take comfort in some places that I shouldn't, Dear
But, I could always take comfort in you

If we only get one Season, shouldn't we try to be extreme
Least something to remember 'stead of something short of dreaming
Like a hidden Saint among Us, Lazarus without a bed
Is it a Fable or a Deal dancing visions in your head?
But, I will love you Here instead...

If you always feel outnumbered, Babe, ain't it hard to get some rest
And, if you're scared of being forgotten that ain't some sin you must confess
When I think of where we're headed, Darling, it's always to the West
Always to the West, into the Sun, always to the West

So, now I'm fighting 'gainst the darkness, Darling, searching for the light
I'm fighting 'gainst the darkness, Darling, searching for the light
I'm always fighting 'gainst the darkness, I'm just trying to get it right...
