Bright As You

lyrics

Couldn't be as bright as you.
I couldn't be as bright as the sun in its shining.
Could I be so true?
You're the brightest thing on my horizon

Could I be so fine?
One little apple of your little eye?
No, I couldn't, not if I tried
I couldn't be bright.

Speak in my good ear, my bad one's gone down.
Stuck to the wind with the window rolled down.
Speak me some good news, but don't make a sound.
I couldn't be bright.

I could be free of it, wanting to be of it.
I could be knowing and growing inside.
I could be free of it, wanting to be,
But I couldn't be bright.

You put supernovas to shame.
They all flicker out when you call out my name.
You've got the light that right-sizes my frame.
I couldn't be bright as you.
No, I couldn't be bright as you.
