Your love won't reach the bottom of this great canyon
It barely skims the surface
It's a fleeting thought, A momentary sigh
And yet it has become my branch of refuge

Your barren words can't breach the dense walls of this heart
They barely scratch the surface
They're a fleeting wish, A momentary breath
And yet they've become my grip on stability

This crutch won't catch my fall
No matter how tightly I hold on
This crutch won't catch my fall
It can't

Your subtle kiss will never fill an empty glass
It'll barely touch the surface
It's a fleeting dream, A momentary gasp
And yet it's become my reason for breathing

You will never permeate this void in my life
You'll barely coat the surface
You're a fleeting hope, A momentary laugh
And yet you've become my taste of comfort

This crutch won't catch my fall
No matter how tightly I hold on
This crutch won't catch my fall
It can't
