lyrics

Ice in its bark and holes in its height,
wearing the snow, even dusk is bright -
and if we out-walk the cracks we hear,
when it falls to the earth and nobody appears
does it make a sound anyway?
Does it make a sound at all?

Doubts fed by pleasures take hold of my mind.
Moments are miracles mapped in the time.
But if my feet drag, if I limp, if I crawl,
If I wander off course from the hour of call
will I hear the call anyway?
Will I hear the call at all?

Grace keeps the injured from falling behind -
the hands which extend it hold onto the time.
Snow makes each footstep look just like the last.
Quiet and loneliness move me to ask
won't you walk this world with me?
Won't you walk this world with me?
