If I Wrote Music, This Would Be a Country Song

SOON IT WILL BE DAY

No lights are on,
And your shades are drawn.
When I’m here you pretend
That you’re not home.
While I wait,
I can feel you
Wishing me away.
I’m here to stay.

You’re the only home
I’ve ever known,
And I’d rather sit here
All alone,
In the dark and cold
With you just a wall away.
It’s still night right now,
But I’ll wait.
It will soon be day.

You can’t shut out
All emotion.
Love and pain are
Here to stay.
We’re still meant to be
Together
So don’t hide your face
Don’t push it all away.
It’s night right now,
But soon it will be day.

How did our love
Go so wrong?
It was strong and deep,
And we got along through
The toughest days and
Coldest nights I’ve known.
You held me close, and
You were my only home.

Why are we such strangers
now? You’re locked inside
Your darkened house,
I know those locks—
I used to be the key.
I know you’re in there
Listening—so please,
Let me in and say you see it too—you’re the only one
for me, and I’m here for you.

You can’t shut out
All emotion.
Love and pain are
Here to stay.
We’re still meant to be
Together
So don’t hide your face
Stop pushing me away.
It’s night right now,
But soon it will be day.
