You Are the Songbird

Julie Snow

You are the answer my life's the question to
I did not know the question till my love landed on you.
You are the anchor, my life's the stormy sea
Have you come all the way out here just to rescue me?

You bring the light to me each time I get myself lost in the dark
The hole becomes a tunnel I can see through.
Oh I know I should not need it, I need to do my part
Maybe someday I can light your way.

You are the songbird. Even while I sing
Yours is the song that's filling me, while I am emptying.
You are the messenger. You bring the olive branch
If I seem ungrateful just give me one more chance.

I never had it handed to me quite like this before.
I find that I'm afraid to let it happen.
Oh I've always been prepared to be the first to use the door
But now no one's going and love is growing.

You are the answer my life's the question to
I did not know the question till my love landed on you.
You are the anchor, my life's the stormy sea.
Have you come all the way out here just to rescue me?
