This song is about someone who helped me to leap from one place in life to the next. I will always be grateful to him for this.

lyrics

Lyrics and music by Angie Nussey

You could have waited
'cause I would've gotten better
Would have come to you with vigor
You'd have never seen me down

I would have been polished.
I would have been rested.
I would have been all the things it takes
For your time to be invested.

Chorus
But you took me anyway
Full knowing
All my weakness showing.
You took my hand into your arm.
Without another word spoken..
..took me when I was broken

You were kind
and you were thoughtful.
When I was shaken
you were careful.

And I found strength
to be myself.
You were everything I needed at the time
like nobody else.

Chorus

Bridge
There was a time when I knew nothing of the person I could be.
I was haunted by the demons that you didn't even see.
You took me in when I thought never would I find a place to land.
It was a time I needed someone more than just another man.
And I held onto you like I would never leave you then.
Here I go again. Hoping you'll remember when….

Chorus
