Stopping your heartbeat
But the parts stay in their place
Call on yourself tonight
Don't back away

Scratches on skin move slow
Put it back put it back down low
I felt a trace of your craving

The living sometimes will wait their whole lives
Today you take mine
Strength of a God as I open my hands to you

Send all my blood to you
Till your oceans have filled right through
And on the shores I will wait for days

It's not a cause for alarm
It's a strange and a lovely place
Your absence makes me strong
So here I will wait, I will wait, I will wait

The living sometimes
Today I told it goodbye
A creature dead in your jaws
Strength of a God as I open my hands to you

Here in these oceans I wait as you call
You said you would come back you told me yourself
Light will escape you wherever you are
So in darkness I will wait
