who knew this day would find me?
 consuming the past behind me 
insisting my heart will define me no matter that i show the work of my hands and the hours
 spent growing the sand into towers
 calling your sea to devour more than you know gone are the days that i carried 
a grief that alone i had married
 to everything held and then buried deep in my soul for now you speak far beyond reason
 a bridge with a foot in each season 
extending a hope i believe in more than you know what kept me here and standing free? What part of you saw this in me
oh how long until I see? this light goes on forever
 carrying time in it’s treasure
 by blood and above us like weather further than we’ll go for all of the breath that leaves us
 the ghosts we invite to deceive us
 i hold to the grace that believes for us more than we know more than we know
in the darkest hour of the darkest day 
you came and darkened my doorway just tryin to drive the dark away but i kept my shades drawn i drew a bath after you'd gone
 got in the tub and soaked til dawn why'd you keep me here so long? i'll keep singing you my songs, i'll sing 'em til my voice is gone
 then you put a record on you put my favorite record on 
you know i wanna sing along i know the beating of your heart like the beat of a drum
 the beating of my head against the wall after you leave, before you come like the captain's clock what i wanted from you wasn't what got from you
 now all i got are thoughts of you
 so i put them in my dresser drawer and put on a shirt you wore and try to put my best foot forward i know the beating of your heart like the beat of a drum 
the beating of my head against the wall after you leave, before you come like the captain's clock in the belly of the croc do you wanna take a trip with me to mexico or tenerife? i wanna lie on a beach do you wanna take a trip with me up to the roof, down to the street
 who’s gonna hold my hand who’s gonna shoe my feet if you find somebody new, i won't weep or mourn for you i'll hold my head up high to prove 
that one is indivisible by two and i'm invisible to you
