lyrics

I’ll lie down
At the Wailing Wall
When my work is done
I’m so sick of waiting round
For somebody else’s Lord

To catch fire like the fairy lights
Do on Christmas day
And make me into a waterfall
To carry these tears away

All the stars
Look like lamps
On a distant hill
Going out

We both know
It gets darker
And it gets cold
Before the dawn

Morning born in an empty sky
Quiet as a word unsaid
I’m so tired of lying down
In somebody else’s bed

So I’m going home in a begging bowl
Fearful as a sailor’s song
It still feels like letting go
Though you’ve already gone

Hold me up
Set my feet
Make the river strong
Let me go

We both know
I get the words
Stuck in my throat
Hear me out
