Lyrics

could I have a little honey

to go with all my bitter

just a little taste of sweetness

if only for a while

 

I could use a little sunlight

to break the hold of winter

it's been nothing but these grey skies

holding on so long

 

and it sounds so sweet

when you sing to me

I could almost believe...

 

I've been staring at the ceiling

ticking off my failures

I'm counting on the morning

if only sleep would come

 

I'm ready for a new day

the chance to start it over

so tired of the silence

& I'm tired of being cold

 

and it sounds so sweet

when you sing to me

I could almost let myself believe...

 

the dawn could be breaking though the sun's still pale & cold

it's a fragile awakening--- when we dare ourselves to hope

 

I could use a little bitter

to temper all this sweetness

'cause you know, I might believe it

when you sing me your song

I might just sing along...
