Before I Loved You


Before I loved you
My world all around
Was falling apart
My life knocked down

Calendars would stop
For months as a time
Breathing would seem
First degree in crime

Trains went backward
As ships sunk
Your love for me
Was far more than luck

My imigination ran wild
As walls came alive
I couldn't leave
Four doors were five

Sidewalks moved
When I'd try to run
When I'd get the courage
I'd lose the gun

I was living to run
Running to live
Things now so different
Since my love I give
