I Think He’d Understand

I THINK HE’D UNDERSTAND

Written in August 2009

As the rain was falling down they went their separate ways
He’d hit the ground.  They said goodnight
But meant goodbye
And he drove in the dampened glow
The moonlight shivered as the rain turned to snow
He was so tired

CHORUS

How could… why would you make me choose
Between my God and you, my son?
Father what does your God have to do
With my love or you?
I think he’d understand
I think he’d understand

It was late, the room was dark
Side by side, the silence marked by still breathing
He held your hand
And you dreamed a face slipped through
The whispered words, a night that drew them both closer
He said, “I love you”

CHORUS

Tell me what to do, I don’t know what
Don’t even know who I am…
But you know, how can you be so sure
That our love is worth everything?
And I am trying to believe in you
I am trying to believe

As the rain was falling down they went their separate ways
He’d hit the ground, they said goodnight
But meant goodbye
