It was a few years after an averted disaster
It was Winter, but it was warm
A Beauty sleeping, and her Dreamer smiling
Culmination of all before
It was the very beginning of every next something
They'd be better for Evermore
As the past lay sprawling with the future calling
He was waiting outside her door

Through the conquered toppling corridors
Back-alley mystery
In the Roosevelt Hotel, he slept
By the window, restlessly
A Busker playing most every day
1960's melodies
A freedom rider and a mournful driver
Down them old forgotten streets
And, when she finally showed, he did not waste time
He gave her flowers and a place to sleep

Fractured fragments of another time
Distant days, best forgotten later
Though, their fairytale was always flawed
Maybe that's what made it better
Two injured souls on a Winter's day
Now, redemption in a shining shade
He said, "I always knew, Baby, that you'd come around
Darling, welcome to our better days
Yeah, I always knew, Baby, that you'd come around
Darling, welcome to our better days"

I could be your Paladin and you could be my Queen
We can revel in the comfort of the in-between
Though the demons may dance on our romance
They could never defeat us, Dear
I think we're one step closer to who-knows-where
But, it just might be better than here

I've got songs in my back pocket
I have not sung for years
I could play them for you, easily
If you think you might want to hear 'em
Through the saddened hallways we walked many a time
I'd never leave you standing there
I think we're one step closer to who-knows-where
