Theres a can in the street
Kicked to the curb
And the last bridge I crossed suddenly burned

Daylights all gone
And the night just wont end
And Im thinking of leaving again

Could you love me like home, like hills that slumber?
Could you love me like dreams, like stars without number?
Could you love me like morning mist off of a road?
Could you love me like the shadows of evening?

In a car going fast
Like it needs to be gone
Ive got the window rolled down, radio on

A couple of hours
And miles ago
I turned into someone I didnt know

Could you love me like stones, like wonder, like rain?
Could you love me like ghosts, like echoes, and then
Could you love me like hope, loves forgiveness, and grace?
Could you love me enough not to lose me?

All the sad songs
That I ever heard
I never believed a single word

That was before
When I was with you
And now I know every sad word is true

Could you love me like traces and places in time?
Could you love me like bells, like roses that climb?
Could you love me like breath catching hard on your name?
Could you love me enough to believe in

In the cool, quiet shadows of evening
And all that we hear is our breathing
