Now that there's nothing left, what do you say?
The morning's been coming hard, It's starting to rain
And all across the horizon, the sky is a solid slate white
And I can get through today if I can see you tonight

Some would say, hey that's life, it's one thing then the next
And if you never get so low, you wouldn't know happiness
If you were here I could block it
The pace of life I can't stop it
No matter how good you got it, baby
You know people just get sad sometimes
And I can get through today if I can see you tonight

When darkness comes for you, I will run to you
I'll keep you in my arms, I'll shelter you from harm
I'll be there wherever you go, wherever you go
I'll be there you should know

You work hard all damn day and I'm slacking off
You say you're up for this, but I know that you're not
So when I come to pick you up tonight,
I hope you say, baby, just come inside
And I can get through today if I can see you tonight
