BRIGHTER

You just caught me on a good day.
I’ve never seen you laugh this way—
Maybe because I just met you tonight.

I think I know you pretty well for
Having met you on the dance floor,
And having stayed up ’til five.

I’m lying on my back
And it’s pitch black.
Everything’d be brighter
If your head were on my chest.
I don’t need to see you at your worst
To give you all of my best.
So for now I’m lying on my back
And it’s pitch black.

I said I think, but know I’m certain.
My wall is down, pull the curtain.
These words are all I’ve said to you.

Trust is such a fragile thing,
I’ve heard the voice of an angel sing.
These words are how I feel about you.

I’m lying on my back
And it’s pitch black.
Everything’d be brighter
If your head were on my chest.
I don’t need to see you at your worst
To give you all of my best.
So for now I’m lying on my back
And it’s pitch black.

Finding love in your life was on your list,
But the wrong kind’s what you put on top of it.
So don’t mind me
When I go and do the opposite.

I want to fly to you and kiss you madly.
You have to know you’ve always had me
From that first kiss at the bar.

But for now I’m lying on my back
And it’s pitch black.
Everything’d be brighter
If your head were on my chest.
