david m. bailey: Music & Lyrics

My hero

(david m. bailey)
1996
david m. bailey
you know when i am crying before i even know i'm sad
and the words you use to comfort are the same i say to you
some call it compassion, others call it courage
I guess i'll call it soulmate, and hope that you can too.

you know when i am laughing before the smile forms on my lips
and the tender touch of brilliance found in your embrace
is a touch some might call fleeting, others call it chance
I guess I'll call it soul-deep, and hope you see it on my face

don't ask me to make sense, I know I cannot
words are not the right tool to explain
softer than a whisper, more eternal than the mountains
it's the sweet buried in the bitter of the pain

it ain't easy, fighting every moment
sometimes it's hard to love what you cannot know
but i thank you, for rising every morning
more than a soul mate, you shall always be my hero
