i do not need saving
but be my strength when i have none
take me in arms of invisible steel
it is a togetherness that i need

i do not need keeping
but be my wall to grow my branches along
and blossom flowers everyday with me

i do not need skin
but we will come together in the night
and sleep in the day
and take peace in heart given god-speak

he will walk quickly to me
when i am nothing
he will be something.
when he is frail
i will be his stamping bones

they think I am stronger alone
he makes me weak and stronger still
we stand straight through
cracking cold dawns
holing down the weather

be my bone
be my blood
be yours
