Once I could make myself at home
Anywhere curl up like a cat
But I’ve grown out of being that way
You could say I got wary
Or just learned to carry
More baggage around of my own

I sat on the edge of your leather chair
Like I was about to go somewhere
And when I left your place
I left no trace behind me
I was treading lightly
Not a single thing
Not a bobby pin
Not a strand of hair

I was just visiting
Where I was living
Was somewhere alone
And you’ve known I was visiting
But I think I just might stay for while
It’s the way that you smile
it’s the way I feel
Lucky to be here
Lucky to be here at all

I saw you at the bar and I thought
I had missed my moment when I saw
The woman you were with
And it gave me a shock
That knock of my heart in my chest
I was certain that it was too late
To decide to say yes or resist

So to wake up beside you
As the morning light comes in
Washing the room in white
Is so sweet that it aches
And it shakes me a little
To think maybe it’ll be
Something I learn not to fight
