Blinded
(Aaron Howard 2010)

I said good morning
I’ll see you when I make it back to town
I’d figured out the life I saw before me
It’s funny sometimes life can turn around
And I hate the distance
And the miles of road that lie between
But the more I try to stand for my resistance
The more I know those miles don’t mean a thing

If love is blind I’m a blinded man
As blind as I’ve become I still can see
That the more I know the less I understand
It’s amazing how blinded I can be

I wasn’t ready
To let go of what I’d left behind
But you looked at me as though my heart was steady
And you said everything will come to you in time
And we were finally open
As we watched the sun go down across the bay
When I found the strength to tell you I was broken
You said everybody falls along the way

If love is blind I’m a blinded man
As blind as I’ve become I still can see
That the more I know the less I understand
It’s amazing how blinded I can be

I thought I’d break before I’d ever bend
And love was a game or a fortune I’d missed
I couldn’t say what you meant to me then
But nothing prepared me for this

For this love
It’s all so clear
It’s getting better every day
And maybe years from now we’ll laugh at how we got here
Through the mystery of a blindness we embraced

If love is blind I’m a blinded man
As blind as I’ve become I still can see
That the more I know the less I understand
It’s amazing how blinded I can be (2x)
