Hanging by a thread
It was always like this
Only now that they've gone
Nothing left but to hide it

Words fall apart when I speak
Not that anyone listens
Thoughts like clouds waiting for
Sunny days or thunder
Standing there on your solid principles
I'll dangle round' til someone cuts me down

All alone watching the water flow
I would drown if I could just let go

By and by I'd hoped
To harden my insides
Then I'd leave you alone
To build yourself a real home
But the sea showed me that I am weak
I'll close my eyes to all that I'm seeing

All alone watching the water flow
I would drown if I could just let go

I would follow
Looking down
At the water
Far away
I could hold on
Give and take
Wash away

Hanging on
I'm only
Hanging on
Moon shining a shimmering light
Stars Above
I'm sleeping in
Rest a while
My reflection shining on all the waves

How does it matter?
Letting my soul fall into the water
Bearing the weight of
Wanting your love all for my own greedy heart
How does it matter?
Lavender sky in the morning after
Into the greater
Bottomlessness already found, 'ready found
How did it happen?
How does the sun rise above the mountain?
How does it matter?
Wanting your love all for my own greedy heart
All of the beauty
Blaze of the light once it's seen through the dark
Coming up through me
All the pieces fall apart, fall apart

Oh my heart
