Lyrics

One perfect day,
hopeful and anxious.
I cried
when I saw your open hand,
the promise
of a new day.
The promise
of a new faith in one another.

Then we felt the cold.
No one
could
rise above
such lofty expectation,
the sum of our hopes
not enough
to overcome
our
fear.

You retreated,
you showed your doubt.
Yet we’re still climbing.
We’re still here,
seeking
the promise
of that one
perfect
day.
