I want love where love is due
Do you know how much I found in you?
Do you know how painful it is to lose
The one you'd a million times choose?
The spot you left vacant is a gaping wound
I search for water in sandy dunes
My heart, too shallow, will be buried soon
Alongside the love I thought I knew
I thought I held it close, kept hope alive
Could fill an ocean with tears before I dive
Searching aimlessly for life below the tides
I knew the truth when I ran out of time
That the hand encircled around my wrist
The lips that healed with a steady kiss
Laid my worries, my fears, my head amiss
In favor of a heart that basks in this
This light, this warmth, I'm safe to adore
Settled my blood, strengthened my core
Opened me up, brought me to shore
Then love welcomed me home through an open door
