about

This song was a Valentine’s Day present written for someone who was very anxious and believed I was going to leave because of their anxieties. It was to reassure them that I wasn’t going anywhere.
Originally Named After A Kiss Song was entirely acoustic, but in the studio we decided to try something different and give it a little more oomph. - Brad

lyrics

You say, you always say
You're alive, that you're still breathing, you're here
How lucky can I be

I'm watching, hoping, I'm helping, or trying to anyway,
and really all I'm doing is being here
And I want to help, but what can I say
To erase the the pain, make it all go away
What haven't I already said with my arms
Or the fingers in your hair
How lucky can I be

Nothing ever lasts forever
I swear you'll do better, 'cause I'll be here as long as I can be
When sun comes up on summer, as one we'll have conquered this weather
You're helping me do better for myself

Why are you scared
I'm not leaving
I want to stay right here
I am yours
