Under a blanket of matches you spark a flame and toss it as you walk away
As I lie there singed in my covenant skin, I'm still glad that you came
As I rise from the ashes to fall at your feet
It's too soon I don't want you to leave
You say you can't settle then hand me your candle and get out the gasoline
If you'd name this man
what would it be?
Would it be devotion or would it be the biggest fool you've every seen
If you'd name this man what would it be?
At the bridge of forgiveness you send me across saying, “wait for me on the far side”
But, half of the way I feel the ropes break
I look back on an axe swinging high
On the edge of denial I reach for your hand
then push me away
