  • You took my sadness out of context
    At the Mariners Apartment Complex
    I ain't no candle in the wind

    I'm the board, the lightning, the thunder
    Kind of girl who's gonna make you wonder
    Who you are and who you've been

    And who I've been is with you on these beaches
    Your Venice bitch, your die-hard, your weakness
    Maybe I could save you from your sins
    So, kiss the sky and whisper to Jesus
    My, my, my, you found this, you need this
    Take a deep breath, baby, let me in

    You lose your way, just take my hand
    You're lost at sea, then I'll command your boat to me again
    Don't look too far, right where you are, that's where I am
    I'm your man
    I'm your man

    They mistook my kindness for weakness
    I fucked up, I know that, but Jesus
    Can't a girl just do the best she can?
    Catch a wave and take in the sweetness
    Think about it, the darkness, the deepness
    All the things that make me who I am

    And who I am is a big-time believer
    That people can change, but you don't have to leave her
    When everyone's talking, you can make a stand
    'Cause even in the dark I feel your resistance
    You can see my heart burning in the distance
    Baby, baby, baby, I'm your man, yeah

    You lose your way, just take my hand
    You're lost at sea, then I'll command your boat to me again
    Don't look too far, right where you are, that's where I am
    I'm your man
    I'm your man

    Catch a wave and take in the sweetness
    Take in the sweetness
    You want this, you need this
    Are you ready for it?
    Are you ready for it? Are you ready for it? Writer/s: Elizabeth Grant, Jack Antonoff
