lyrics

Verse 1: I went to your house for the first time in years. Didn’t know what to feel, I had my fair share of fears. I knocked on your door three times, you asked me what I wanted. At first I didn’t respond, you see I hadn’t thought that I’d be wanted. But eventually, I—eventually—hesitantly, I recited my vows. And you held me in your arms. Yes, you held me in your arms. And you whispered to my heart, as you held me in your arms and said “it’s gonna be fine.”

Verse 2: I asked for your help for the first time in years. Didn’t know what to say, I had my fair share of fears. I called out your name three times, are you listening at all? Your response was “of course, you see I hear you every time you call.” And immediately, you—immediately—without hesitancy, you accepted my vows. And you said not to believe all that they say about you. You said they’ve taken it too far, as you held me in your arms and said “it’s gonna be fine.”

Bridge: Are we strong enough to make more from this? Have we waited long enough in this moment of grief? If everything’s the same, can we atone for this? Are you ashamed or disappointed in me? Are we strong enough to make more from this? Have we waited long enough in this moment of grief? If everything has changed, can we atone for this? Are you ashamed or disappointed in me?

Chorus: All I wanted was to feel at home in your home. I just wanted you to shelter me from the storm. All I wanted was to know like I wasn’t alone. All I wanted was to feel at home in your home.
