MISSY HIGGINS THEY WEREN'T THERE LYRICS
You breathed infinity into my world
And time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night
Then you said, "Wait for me we'll fly the wind,
"We'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him."
But oh, now my world is at your feet
I was lost and I was found
But I was alive and now I've drowned
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
So they can tell me I was wrong
But they weren't there beneath your stare
And they weren't stripped 'til they were bare
Of any bindings from the world outside that room
And they weren't taken by the hand
And led through fields of naked land
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away
So I couldn't say, "No."
You sighed and I was lost in you
Weeks could've past for all I knew
You were there blanket of the over-world
And so I couldn't say, I wouldn't say, "No."
But they all said, "You're too young to even know,
"Just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him."
