Beautiful Evangelina
Tell me what you hear
This surely can’t be as good as it gets
Rearrange the things I’ve said
In confidence and fear
And show me to a day with no regrets

I couldn’t guess how bad it was
‘Til you gave me the space to fall apart
To piece together who I am
Before the real mistakes could ever start
For that I thank you
More than I think you know

Beautiful Evangelina
Tell me what you see
This surely can’t be all that I’ve got left
From out of the blue
You and your smile brought back to me
Some of the hope I’d lost to time and theft

I couldn’t guess how bad it was
‘Til I could feel the blood rush through your hand
So when I was left fumbling
At least you had the grace to understand
For that I thank you
More than I think you know

Bittersweet Evangelina
Here’s to a life that might have been
A chance to rest a troubled mind
A chance to leave the past behind
A chance for both of us to dream it up again

I couldn’t guess how bad it was
‘Til somehow I walked into your embrace
A season of uncertainty
One that you made just possible to face
For that I thank you
More than I think you know
