  • I call what we have indigo
    Unclear what we are or what we know

    And though you never take my hand
    Even when I raise your shipwreck from the sand
    And though you never count the cost
    Of the innocence you've lost and what it meant

    You don't have to love me
    There's one thing you should know
    My love will not unravel
    It's unconditional
    My indigo

    Even when the heart won't let me show, you don't have to say to let me know
    My indigo
    Even when the heart won't let me show, you don't have to say to let me know
    My indigo...

    Ink burns on the page, blue to black
    But words are fireproof, can't take back
    While the memory's alive
    When there's pennies on our eyes, we'll never rest
    Can we take a second now
    To rain down the heavy storm that's in our chest

    You don't have to love me
    There's one thing you should know
    My love will not unravel
    It's unconditional
    My indigo

    Even when the heart won't let me show, you don't have to say to let me know
    My indigo
    Even when the heart won't let me show, you don't have to say to let me know
    My indigo...

    You don't have to love me
    There's one thing you should know
    My love will not unravel
    It's unconditional
    My indigo

    Even when the heart won't let me show, you don't have to say to let me know
    My indigo
    Even when the heart won't let me show, you don't have to say to let me know

    I call what we have indigo...
