orange light

if she hadn’t found that key in the chest
if i hadn’t come through the field in the mist
if she hadn’t knocked on my door at the 11th hour
i never would’ve learned how to love you
i never would’ve looked up and seen that airplane fall
i never would’ve stood in the orange light and let go of it all

if the creek hadn’t been so swift in the spring
if the darkness I’d felt wasn’t such a beautiful thing
if the sky hadn’t opened up and rained our heads
i never would’ve learned how to love you
i never would’ve read that book about traveling on
And i never would’ve found a reason to come back home

if he hadn’t cut his hand and bled
if i hadn’t heard through the walls what they said
if i hadn’t gotten to turn that ring in my palm
i never would’ve learned how to love you
i never would’ve cried out my guts for the aching world
and i never would’ve seen the whole heavens
in the heart of a girl
