All the broken plans
That you are holding in your hands
You are so much older now
You are so much older now

Are you building a house to hold
a nowhere man
Are you building a house
With these broken plans

In your slow moving way
There's no trace of belief
But in your own broken way
You're holy in your grief

You had so much more to say
You had so much more to say
But maybe another a day
Is all now you have to say

Are you building a house to hold
A nowhere man
Are you building a house
With these broken plans

In your slow moving way
There's no trace of belief
But in your own broken way
You're holy in your grief

    General CommentI think this song describes that moment where you realize a person has changed into someone tired, crippled, and old emotionally. For some reason I picture this being written about a parent.
