lyrics

It's been such a long life
I can feel the years in my face
I can't tell my story
Memory failed to keep words in their place
Now I'm just a scrap of a song
Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh

It's been such a cruel night
I'm the only creature still breathing
On the edge of my solace,
another road appears behind a hill -
how long is this death march?
There are angels covering me
to soothe my soul,
soothe my soul.

It's been such a sweet sight
The world opens to me in the shape of your face,
and I'm waiting
I still sit in the mystery of things I can't say
And words are my failing

I've got to find home
Been out here far too long
There's an aching in my bones
I'm trying to be alone

I've got to find home
Been out here far too long
There's an aching in my bones
I'm trying to be alone

Oh, I've got to find home
Been out here too damn long
There's a breaking in my soul
I'm tired of being alone

Joy will come, joy will come
