He Sees Me

Papa Bear played this song for me tonight. It was the first time I’d heard it, but its me, to a T. The notes floated through the room, and I bathed his face in kisses, clinging to him like we were drifting through space and we’d fly apart if either of us let go.

“Thank you for seeing me,” I said.

“Thank you for letting me.”

“Thank you for letting me fight with you,” he said.

“Thank you for fighting with me.”

“She looks at the rain as it pours. And she fights for her life.Nobody knows.”

Sun been down for days
A pretty flower in a vase
A slipper by the fireplace
A cello lying in its case

Soon she’s down the stairs
Her morning elegance she wears
The sound of water makes her dream
Awoken by a cloud of steam
She pours a daydream in a cup
A spoon of sugar sweetens up

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And she goes…
Nobody knows

Sun been down for days
A winter melody she plays
The thunder makes her contemplate
She hears a noise behind the gate
Perhaps a letter with a dove
Perhaps a stranger she could love

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And she goes…
Nobody knows
Nobody knows

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
Where the people are pleasently strange
And counting the change
And she goes…
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Nobody knows

P.S. Watch the video. Seriously!!!
