Light another candle
In my room
Live another season
Straight through
You're the one that makes me
Feel nice
From all the things you said tonight

Early in the morning
The streets
Run across the shadows
Of trees
But we just stayed inside and
Lost time
We talk til we lose track of time

Even in the songs that
I sing
Do you fear the history
They bring?
Sleeping with my head in
Your arms
You're the one that keeps me
From harm

Early in December
Last year
The biggest moon fell broken and clear
West of where our city
Lies still
Over there on Chestnut Hill

Philadelphia Streets turned
To ice
And my bed felt empty
Those nights
Sleeping with my head on
Your chest
You're the one that knew me
The best

And you were there so long
You were there for so long

Will you come back?

Maybe it's in you that
I saw
All the hope I thought I
Had lost
Sleeping with my head on
Your chest
You're the one that knew me
The best
