From the album Better Things

Lyrics

Details (written by Rob Morsberger, ASCAP, from "A Periodic Rush of Waves", Heiroglyph Records)

It’s in all the ways I hurt and disappoint you
It’s in all the things I fail to do and say
It’s in every little smile of forgiveness
It’s in every waking hour of the day
The measure of a life is in the details
And the love is in the details of our lives
It’s the sum of every tender quiet moment
It’s the sacrifices that you take away
It’s the number of hard times you think of leaving
You subtract it from the ones that make you stay
The measure of a life is in the details
And the love is in the details of our lives
True love is not a picnic
It’s a lot of small things melted down
And love is not monumental
It looks across a great divide
It’s the distance times the frequency of travel
It’s the baggage that you pack before you start
It’s the answer waiting for you in the darkness
And the lonely calculations of the heart
The measure of a life is in the details
And the love is in the details of our lives
