More Than This

More Than This

Lori Lieberman

We’re more than the town we’re from
More than this love that we couldn’t give up
Not just the names that defined our lives
Somebody’s husband
Somebody’s wife
These things beneath the skin
Acts of grace and acts of sin

We’re more than these
We’re more than these

You’re more than the slam of the door
More than the tone at the end of the phone
Not just the stories that they’ll believe
Not just your checkered history
You’re more than the last thing you did
More than the secrets that couldn’t stay hid

You’re more than these
You’re more than these
You’re more to me

You think that I don’t know but I know
You think that I don’t see, I do
I watch you live your life
And face each day with a brand new fight
You gather up your strength
And you will go to any length
To comfort me
To shelter me
You’re there for me
You’re there for me

We’re more than this town we’re from
More than this love that we couldn’t give up
Not just the names that defined  our lives
Somebody’s husband
Somebody’s wife
These things beneath the skin
Acts of grace and acts of sin

We’re more than these
We’re more than these
When will they see
We’re more than these
When will we see
We’re more than these
More than these…
