He shares his burdens
And his broken dreams
His time with her safe harbour in a storm
He thinks she knows that this is his strange gift
His battered life laid on her doorstep

She takes him as he is and listens
She feeds him and accepts his touch
And all the while she wonders
Would she have noticed him
If he'd been less than shattered and undone

He knows he's half the man he used to be
Or maybe half the man he thought we was
He's spent and damaged and in denial
He's treading water 'til the lifeboat comes

She knows that somewhere he'd care for her
If he could stop to take a breath
It could be foolish pride that makes her wait
For the man she thinks he is
