A promise or a dare 
I would jump if I knew you'd catch me 
Staring over the edge 
I can't tell if you'll be here for me 

I close my eyes and make a wish 
Turn out the lights and take a breath 
Pray that when the wick is burned 
You would say that it's all about love 

[Chorus]
You were there when I needed you 
You were there when the skies broke wide  wide open 
You were there when I needed you 
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open 

You were never here 

I remember you said 
Love was more than your good intentions 
Empty boxes on the floor 
Things I never asked you for 
I pray that when the wick is burned 
You would say that it's all about love 

[Chorus] 

I can't see the promise of 
Excuses you fall upon 
I pray to God not holding on 
To things you've left undone 

[Chorus: x2] 

You were there when I 
You were there when I 
You were there when I needed you
