Just Desserts

V1
Love at First Sight – People would try, but could not understand it
What made it right? How could we drop everything as we’d planned it?
Sometimes at night we’d both wonder why we were having such favor
Sometimes, in spite of all good intentions, we labeled them “Naysayers”

Chorus;
We thought we deserved this –
Living on the surface –
Somehow we were “worth it” – and then…

V2
Our first real fight – finally seeing weren’t insulated
“Who’s wrong? / Who’s right?” seemed to be all that we concentrated on
Sometimes at night we wondered why we were having such trouble
Sometimes, in spite of all good intentions. we’d burst our own bubble

Churus:
I did not deserve this –
I did not deserve this –
I did not deserve this from You…

Bridge:
Where did I get the idea that you had to be perfect to be perfect for me?
Where did i get the idea that perfection existed?
Where did I get the idea that conflict and doubt are not part of the equation?
Where did I get the idea and not resist it?

V3
You needed me – and they needed me – and I needed me
and you could not be all of the things i asked you to be
And sometimes at night you wondered how to provide what I’d long for
Sometimes, in spite of all good intentions, i could not have harmed You more…

Bridge:
Where did I get the idea that you had to be perfect to be perfect for me?
Where did i get the idea that perfection existed?
Where did I get the idea that conflict and doubt are not part of the equation?
Where did i get the idea and not resist it?

Chorus:
You did not deserve this –
You did not deserve this
You did not deserve this from me —-
and I’m sorry…

V4:
Love, deep and wide – we thought we had it back at the beginning
But that seed has died, and buried itself, and tripled our winnings
Sometimes at night the roots go down deeper to steady the swaying
And sometimes in spite of all good intentions we were only playing at Grace

Chorus:
We did not deserve this
having Hope resurface
Thrive, and make it worth dying for….
