Until You're Ready

here we go across the lines
we built our fires one hundred times
you make me say the words that i
might need to hear to feel alright
so i don't need a second chance
to be the one that i know i am
i see you from a different side
i still believe that you're here tonight

true as i can be, we were never really standing
but i won't make you leave until you're ready
long as we can trace what i know that i believe
then i won't make you leave until you're ready

i wonder what our friends would say
to see us now with a different aim
sharper light, stronger eyes
a different shape on a truer line
it's greyer than the blackest white
it's darker than the darkest sky
i see you from a different side
i still believe that you're here tonight

true as i can be, we were never really standing
but i won't make you leave until you're ready
long as we can trace what i know that i believe
then i won't make you leave until you're ready

as true as i can be, like a ship not on a sea
so much stronger underneath with or without me
as true as i can be, like a ship not on a sea
so much stronger underneath with or without me

true as i can be, we were never really standing
but i won't make you leave until you're ready
long as we can trace what i know that i believe
then i won't make you leave until you're ready
