I would have been here sooner,
Your note came yesterday;
But yesterday was crazy,
There was much to square away.
Then I tried to come this morning,
But the old car wouldn't run;
And the buses run so slowly,
There was nothing to be done.

But you, you don't need my troubles,
I'm here now, anyway;
And there's nothing left behind me,
To say I cannot stay.
When I told you that I love you,
I said, "Call me anytime;
And especially when you need someone,
When things get out of line."

And oh, there's a burning in your eyes,
And the hand you put in mine won't stop trembling;
Oh, tell me what you're going through,
'Cause all I want to do is be protecting.
No! All those shadows on your face,
They look so out of place, they should be sunlight;
I want to take you when your smile returns,
And keep you from the night,
And wake up to see me in your eyes.

I don't know how we happened,
When we're kept so far apart;
There sure are lots worse prisons,
Than the kind with iron bars.
And it almost makes me crazy,
To see you hurt inside;
When you're beautiful and really need,
To let things open wide.

And oh, there's a burning in your eyes,
And the hand you put in mine won't stop trembling;
Oh, tell me what you're going through,
'Cause all I want to do is be protecting.
No! All those shadows on your face,
They look so out of place, they should be sunlight;
I want to take you when your smile returns,
And keep you from the night.
And wake up to see me in your eyes,
I want to take you when your smile returns;
And keep you from the night,
And wake up to see me in your eyes.
