You let me in,
I can see more clearly
Who you want to be
And what you’re needing from me.

I shake a bit
And the tears start falling,
The night is dark
But the stars are glowing.

The rain is loud
On the roof of my old car.
Keys hanging in the ignition
We aren’t getting very far.

We sit awhile
And share our secrets,
Our painful times and deepest regrets.
Time has stopped,
We’re just letting our mouths run wild.

Your hand trembles in mine
And I hold it tight,
You’re opening up and
Just trying to fight
Back the memories that are rushing through your mind.

Along your back
My fingertips trace lines.
In my bravest voice
I say it’ll be just fine.
I wonder if you believe me…
