So this is me, age 18, playing a guitar my brother gave to me, trying to write a song to impress a girl called Allison Stewart. Still hard to impress. Now, she’s here tonight, so help me out here.

You got a face not spoiled by beauty
I have some scars from where I’ve been
You’ve got eyes that can see right through me
They’re not afraid of anything they’ve seen
I was told that I would feel nothing the first time
I don’t know how these cuts heal
But in you I found a rhyme

If there is a light
You can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
There is a dark
And you shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And this is a song
Song for someone
Song
Song for someone

You let me into a conversation
A conversation only we could make
You break and enter my imagination
Whatever’s in there
It’s yours to take
I was told I’d feel nothing the first time
You were slow to heal
But this could be the night

If there is a light
You can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
If there is a dark
Within and without
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And this is a song
A song for someone
A song
Song for someone

Love me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I’m a long way
From your hill of Cavalry
And I’m a long way
From where I was and where I need to be
If there is a light
You can’t always see
There is a world
We can’t always be
I know there is plenty
Of reasons to doubt
If there is a light
Don’t let it go out
