You know I know you like the day knows daylight
I know you like the sun knows warm
You know I know who you are

You know I know you in your strength
And when you’re weak you hide your face
You know I love you, I love you anyway

If I could break, you know I’d break
If I could bend, I’d bend to
Become the knot that holds you up
I’d mend you

If I could speak you know I’d say the right thing
And you would see we’re so much deeper than the depths
It’s us or no one, or no one else


I love you so much more than all of this
Oh, than all of this
I love you so much more than anything
Than anything else

So if you should break you know I’ll break
If you should bend, I’ll bend too

If I should break, you know I’ll break
If I should bend I’ll bend too
I’ll be the one who holds you up
I’ll mend you, I will mend you, I will mend
