lyrics

Every time I take a step I’m convinced I have arrived
Until I realize there’s still a river in the way
Where is the path that will take me to your house?
Where is the song that will make you pay attention, attention?

But words mean nothing when they are on my tongue
And breaths mean nothing without your tender lungs
And flowers bloom until they rot to dust
And I am cold as stone until there’s some sign of life
From your corner, some sign of life from your corner

Now I’m standing still while the wild water blocks me in
I’d try to cross but I don’t know how to swim
So I’ll hold my tongue and let the birds do all the singing
I’d send one to your window if I knew where you were living,
if I knew where you were living.

But words mean nothing when they are on my tongue
And breaths mean nothing without your tender lungs
Your wings have clapped themselves over my heart
And I was as cold as stone until I felt your blood red
feathers, I felt your blood red feathers
