Lyrics
A 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 it's all about love

Chorus:
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open

You were never here

I remember you said
Love was more than you're good intentions

Empty boxes on the floor
Things I never asked you for
I pray that when the wick is burned
You would say it's all about love

And I can't see the promise of
Excuses you fall upon
So I pray to God not holding on
To things you left undone

You were there when I
You were there when I
You were there when I needed you
M.U.
