But your d

So I w

You Are The Daybreak

Chords and lyrics for You Are The Daybreak by Kevin Devine

I think I’m falling in love again.
Such simple miracles have happened

work out the knots that line my back.

The stress I’ve stored since last December;

and this clarity I’ve never had.

You are the bounce in my step,

You are the knock of my knees,

the swollen sound of each song
I scribble down and tear up,
because they never match up.
You are the words I fumble for.

In the morning,

you are the daybreak,
and I am glad.

And at night,

you are the dream
I fall asleep to have.
