Somewhere behind the house
I thought I might feel
Some hand I’d held too tight
Say how wrong it had been to grow.
Just when I was so strong
No rescue could throw me,
Or too weak to be free,
You made light of me.

I almost said to you,
You never knew me.
That night’s burned off us now.
I don’t have anything to say.
Every time you did right
I’d make like you owed me.
Dark was all I could see,
And you made light of me.

When the green man gave in to the tame,
And the mountain was mocked by the tree,
And all I could hear was my name,
And the jailer turning his key,
And I did it and I got the blame,
And the Greek boy fell into the sea,
And I stayed up all night just to say
My sins like a rosary,
You made light of me.
