I was on your porch
The smoke sank into my skin
So I came inside to be with you
And we talked all night
About everything you could imagine
'Cause come the morning I'll be gone
And as our eyes start to close
I turn to you and I let you know
That I love you

My dad was sick
My mom she cared for him
Her love it nursed him back to life
And me I ran
I couldn't even look at him
For fear I'd have to say goodbye
And as I start to leave
He grabs me by the shoulder
And he tells me

What's left to lose?
You've done enough
And if you fail, well then you fail
But not to us
And these last three years
I know they've been hard
But now it's time to get out of the desert
And into the sun
Even if it's alone

So now here I sit
In a hotel off of Sunset
While my thoughts bounce off
Of Sam's guitar
And that's the way it's been
Ever since we were kids
But now, now we've got something to prove
And I, I can see their eyes
But tell me something
Can they see mine?

'Cause what's left to lose?
I've done enough
And if I fail, well then I fail
But I gave it a shot
And these last three years
I know they've been hard
But now it's time to get out of the desert
And into the sun
Even if it's alone

I was on your porch last night
The smoke it sank into my skin
