​He Came To Meet Me

This song is by Hem and appears on the album Funnel Cloud (2006).

He came to meet me
On some July morning
He said he'd missed me
He came without warning
We walked for half the day
Got lost in my neighborhood
Came back another way
Just like I knew we would
When he came to meet me

He had some stories
He knew a few of mine
I had not heard his voice
For such a long time
My mind would race a bit
Come back to where we stood
I could not keep hold of it
Although I knew I should
When he came to meet me

I'd seen this whole day
Like it was drawing near
Sometimes I'd pray for it
Sometimes I'd shake with fear
Sometimes the only thought
That kept me in the night
Was one that I forgot
In summer's blinding light
When he came to meet me

I wrote myself a song
I could not speak what I'd done
He could have been here all along
He could have been anyone
But there is no one who
Could wake my heart like this
Could break my world in two
I felt a suddenness
I felt a suddenness
The day fell completely still
The dream was a lot like this
But I never knew until
He came to meet me
