lyrics

You closed your eyes, so tired and buried
Everyone watching, you're so... alive and weary
Of my, outstretching arms, embracing every single change

So we perspire, breathe in the marrow
Fearless ascending and we float like a sparrow through the
Unending skies, and say you'll stay with me tonight

It won't be long, til' the day
It won't be long until the pain washes way
It won't be long, so you say
It won't be long until you're right here with me

We rode on through that distant passage
We never thought that this would cause so much damage
Now we're, dreaming of far off fallen cities as we sleep

And I woke up, a fallen arrow
It's 1:15... your breathing, shallow and narrow
In my, fast fading arms, embrace the quiet that you keep

It won't be long, til' the day
It won't be long until the pain washes way
It won't be long, so you say
It won't be long until you're wandering with the wind

Turn the lights on
Find the way home
Hold me close while
Living things roam
Say you want me
Breathing haunting
Leave the lights on
If you can't sleep
When I find you
In the fields blown
Hold me close while
Living things roam
If you're waiting
Leave the lights on for me
