we made us a home 
from shambles and ash 
we colored the walls 
and cleaned up the glass 
and you took me in 

we pulled out the past 
and made it a statue 
we tore it apart 
it wanted to fall 
so we could get up 

please hold me to this 
with light hearted fists 
and don’t let me slip 
for me this is it 
just wanted to love 

no holding back when it comes to former lives 
i know it’s hard to say it 
if you could would you live your past again? 
i’m good right in the moment 

had you known would you want that former life? 
because i want it too 
no better than you 
just wanted to love
