danger in loving you

Wasn’t that long ago
I was all alone
Like a dead man waiting to walk
I had nothing to show
For what I had done
There wasn’t much to me beyond talk

Then you picked me somehow
Singled me out
Said you’d help me turn things around
I had to lay some things down
Say it out loud
Put the things I held dear on the ground

They never warned me
of the dangers in loving you
Never told me
that what I’d heard about you is true
That you’ll love me
In spite of the things I might do
No, they never warned me
of the danger, the danger in loving you

There’s an end I can see,
and you’re taking me
to a better place than I have known
Like a mark on the tree
measuring me
To see how much I have grown

They never warned me
of the dangers in loving you
Never told me
that what I’d heard about you is true
That you’ll love me
In spite of the things I might do
No, they never warned me
of the danger, the danger in loving you
