I don't want to live this way
Giving up my heart to a game
Where nothing is sure and I hold it over the flame

Twenty-five years could pass
Who knows how long the silence will last
Waiting for impossible news but it's not coming fast

We'll never have these words in the sky
And none of these towers can answer me why
I live in hope that you'll open up my eyes

They're running in circles again
Finding a hook to connect the string
To hoist up decorations, cause they can't feel the wind

Maybe they'll float away
Maybe they'll summon the clouds to my day
But over the rain I can hear you speak

Can I trust my sight
The sea and the grass and the skies
Are they illusion dancing on in my mind

My feelings are black and white
Nothing has felt as right
As the bread and the wine on a warm Sunday night
