Saving The Day

© Anne Sumner 2016

Fighting back memories
To stand with you on your undefended territory
Looking for brighter days
A deep longing for your sweeter words and kinder ways
Holding back all my needs
To see you in a better place eventually

I didn't show up with intentions of saving the day
Fighting the demons that threaten to stand in love's way
Fearing you'll find all that's left of your lover's a friend
But it is what it is and I'd gladly go back there again

You fall in love, you never know
If it's freshly turned soil or a field of stones
You take their hand, give your heart
Try to hold it all together while they fall apart
You take the hit, you take the blame
And when it comes around you take it all again

I didn't show up with intentions of saving the day
Fighting the demons that threaten to stand in love's way
Fearing you'll find all that's left of your lover's a friend
But it is what it is and I'd gladly go back there again

It's you my love, the only one
I can imagine would inspire me to get this strong
And nothing's changed, nothing's lost
In my heart I'm keeping everything the way it was
Be by your side forever more
For glimpses of the person that you were before

I didn't show up with intentions of saving the day
Fighting the demons that threaten to stand in love's way
Fearing you'll find all that's left of your lover's a friend
But it is what it is and I'd gladly go back there again
It is what it is, and I'd gladly go back there again
