From the recording Searching for September
I guess I'm tired of fighting you. I can't stand to knock you down again. And still I'm losing in spite of you. This silent war we never win. Lord knows I've tried to replace you. Lord knows I've tried to erase you. But all the while I knew, you can't erase something you never drew. So pull out your pencil and paper now, and write me down a list of all you need. I'll draw you a mouth so you can scream and shout, or don't you say a word if you don't please. I feel this silent war has darkened your mind for sure, but when all has come and gone, you cannot dim a light that isn't on. So stand on your stool now to reach the light. I'll be there to catch you if you fall. I'll build you a window to make it bright. You see we never needed lights after all. Lord knows I've tried to replace you. Lord knows I've tried to erase you. But all the while I knew, you can't erase a love that you wanted too.
