and then you came



Transfixed by cruel twists of time
i stood like a picture in a sepia frame
when slowly, things came alive
flowers bloomed, and then you came

vagrant by nature, bohemian by calling
mine was a soul i was trying to tame
till it found a string too good to be true
faith took a flight, and then you came.

hope had gone extinct, excuses were galore
powerless before fate, reasons went lame
but where people are good, chances come to roost
chances brought me here, and then you came

running for a cover, i sobbed in my hands
tears of love, and tears of shame
gained my own ground, loved back myself
took rein of my life, and then you came
