There For You (vom Album: Dear Heather)

When it all went down

And the pain came through

I get it now

I was there for you

Don't ask me how

I know it's true

I get it now

I was there for you

I make my plans

Like I always do

But when I look back

I was there for you

I walk the streets

Like I used to do

And I freeze with fear

But I'm there for you

I see my life

In full review

It was never me

It was always you

You sent me here

You sent me there

Breaking things

I can't repair

Making objects

Out of thought

Making more of them

By thinking not

Eating food

And drinking wine

A body that

I thought was mine

Dressed as Arab

Dressed as Jew

O mask of iron

I was there for you

Moods of glory

Moods so foul

The world comes through

A bloody towel

And death is old

But it's always new

I freeze with fear

And I'm there for you

I see it clear

I always knew

It was never me

I was there for you

I was there for you

My darling one

And by your law

It all was done

Don't ask me how
