lyrics

SOMETHING TO GIVE

She was the middle of the room
Without even trying that hard
He felt like he had nothing
That anyone could ever really want
Her need for affection
Only eclipsed by her desire to win
So he just watched and waited for something
He could hope she would find in him

If you’d known you had something to give
That someone would have wanted given to them
Sure you see the lines
Between who you were and choices now
But what of it, what of it now

Growing up and finally meeting
In the distant cities of God’s choice
He’d turned seclusion into creation
And longing into noise

If you’d known you had something to give
That someone would have wanted given to them
Sure you see the lines
Between who you were and choices now
But what of it, what of it now

Her name on a car seemed like such a good sign
Coming out of an airport
Your sorry denial of faith wasn’t right
After what you’ve been shown

That watching woman on the station
Who made a ring with her hand across her heart
Meaning where is your heart
If you don’t share when you do have things to give
In the darkness of your seat
The love of the stranger can come
Moving through the night
With the belief that you’ve got what she wants

If you’d known you had something to give
That someone would have wanted given to them
Sure you see the lines
Between who you were and choices now
But what of it, what of it now
