lyrics

Oh these voices get so loud
They fill the house
And I can't shut them out
I can’t face my doubt
Without the sound
Of the pine boughs
Calling down
From out where no one needs me
The trees are breathing I am breathing
We carry out our blind agreement
And never once consider needs beyond the bounds of reason

All these people I don’t know
They look so warm
Inside their glowing windows
And I wonder how they are so sure
Of what they've learned
Or if they have
No concern
For why the days keep passing by
The sky is weeping I am weeping
I have these dreams where I am sleeping
And when I wake up I can never tell what I am feeling
With no one next to me to see it

I waited all day to escape this crowded room
Then I missed you
I walked to where the plow had stopped and I knew
If I laid down and died I’d still be giving and taking something

I watched her breath become a ghost
Just a year ago
Above the sidewalk snow
The cold’s so cold when you’re alone
I had froze
I was hollow
So I pulled in close
Out where no one knew me
The dawn is grieving I am grieving
For things that I used to believe in
So I huddle close to anyone that I remember needing
