    Well, this is just a simple song
    To say what you done
    I told you 'bout all those fears
    And away they did run
    You sure must be strong
    And you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

    When I was just nine years old
    I swear that I dreamt
    Your face on a football field
    And a kiss that I kept under my vest
    Apart from everything with the heart in my chest

    I know that things can really get rough
    When you go it alone
    Don't go thinking you gotta be tough
    To bleed like a stone
    Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical
    As this little hole

    My life in an upturned boat
    Marooned on a cliff
    You brought me a great big flood
    And you gave me a lift
    Girl, what a gift
    Will you tell me with your tongue
    And your breath was in my lungs
    And we float up through the rift

    I know that things can really get rough
    When you go it alone
    Don't go thinking you gotta be tough
    To bleed like a stone
    Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical
    As this little hole

    Well, this would be a simple song
    To say what you done
    I told you 'bout all those fears
    And away they did run
    You sure must be strong
    When you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

    Remember walking a mile to your house
    A glow in the dark
    I made a fumbling play for your heart
    And the act struck a spark
    You wore a charm on the chain that I stole
    Especial for you
    Love's such a delicate thing that we do
    With nothing to prove
    Which I never knew
