When You’re Ready

From EP

I know you trust me,
I know you’ve loved me
From the start
You said you needed
Someone to reach into your heart

I can’t begin to understand the things
You still carry with you
I’m sorry if I
Made it seem like I could solve everything
With a kiss

Call out my name
Tell me the way
How do I get to you?
Light up the lock
Hand me the key
When you’re ready

You know my motives
You knew my reasons were all real
They say the truth hurts
But when you touch it
Can it heal?

I don’t expect
To know the whole of it
I’m just here, and I’m listening
Make me your safe
Holding your secret that’s shared
And a burden that’s halved


When you’re ready…
