lyrics

Our world turned to gold
At the touch of your hand
Washed over with something
That we’ll never understand
We tucked you in tightly,
So fragile, so new,
He gave a little sigh, and said,
“It had to be you.”

We’d read all the books
We knew what to expect
You made us feel perfect
You were ours to protect
We turned out the light
As your room faded blue
I saw you in his eyes, and thought,
“It had to be you.”
It had to be you.

Maybe you saw my heart break
And you’ll let me sing you awake
If that falls through,
Just know this is true:
For us, it had to be you

He put those worries
Inside of my head
We checked you by the hour,
Then by the minutes instead
Above you the comets
And rocketships flew
I watched your last breath, and thought,
“It had to be you.”
It had to be you.

Maybe you saw my heart break
And you’ll let me sing you awake
If that falls through,
Just know this is true:
For us, it had to be you
It had to be you.

The doctors assured me
That we weren’t at fault,
It happens sometimes,
That they’d give us a call

Maybe you saw my heart break
And you’ll let me sing you awake
If that falls through,
Just know this is true:
For us, it had to be you

Our lives turned to gold
At the touch of your hand
Washed over with something
That we’ll never understand
