Of note, this song begins in 5/4 time, switches to 6/8 and explores mood and tempo shifts.
Lyrics: I won't cry, for a long time. Could lose my mind, for a very long time. But time portends, to offer amends, and every time we get knocked, on our knees again, a little bit of love is stirred inside, and it knocks us, a little more, alive. And that's when the grays and the blues get all confused. And that's when time relents and this face has to learn to pretend. And that is when you notice that your rope has gotten shorter. And suddenly. Suddenly. Suddenly, it ends. So throw me a new rope and I will catch the end and I will grab your hand and I will hold on. I will hold on. I will hold on. My heart has been, smashed wide open again. And I am fragile, my friend, from bone to flesh to skin. (chorus). And when my hear is open all this way, I notice it's the same as joy, on any other day. (chorus).
