Even if this is who you think you are
I love you

when the lights flood back to someone you knew, inside
when you're not sure if you're the dam or wave and it's gonna break
when you're feeling empty
 or unreasonably guilty if impossible to give
when you want it all to change but it's just so hard to live
I love you

Even if hope is not what you feel
I love you

when you can't feel my hand in your frozen palm
when nothing connects anymore to your senses in reach
when you're expecting a pity love but I give none
when there's no strength left to hold anyone
I love you

Even when this is who you think you are
rather than what you suffer
I love you
