Promise or a dare
I would jump if I knew you'd catch me
Staring over the edge
I can't tell if you'll be here for me

I close my eyes and make a wish
Turn out the lights and take a breath
Pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it's all about love

You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
(Wide, wide open)
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
But you were never here

I remember you said
"Love was more than your good intentions"
Empty boxes on the floor
Things I never asked you for
I pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it's all about love

You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
(Wide, wide open)
You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
(Wide, wide open)
(Ooo)
(Aaa)

And I can't see the promise of
(Ooo)
(Aaa)
Excuses you fall upon
So I pray to God not holdin' on
(Ooo)
(Aaa)
To things you've left undone

Eyea hey, hey, hey
(Aaa)
Eyea hey, hey, hey
(Aaa)

(Aaa)
(Wide, wide open)
You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
You were there when the skies broke wide wide open
(Wide, wide open)
You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
You were there when the skies broke wide wide open
(All about love)
(Wide, wide open)
You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
You were there when the skies broke wide wide open
(All about love)
(Wide wide, open)
You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
You were there when the skies broke wide wide open
(All about love)
(Wide wide, open)

You were there when I
You were there when I
You were there when I needed you
(Aaa)
(Aaa)
(Wide, wide)
(Aaa)
(Aaa)
(Wide, wide)
(Aaa)
(Wide, wide)
(Aaa)
