Pick up the stitches
Pick up the stitches
Be strong
Pick up the stitches
It's all right
Just pick up the stitches
It's all right
You're not mine
It's all right
I am fine
Just left with scars
To remind me where the wounds are
To remind me where the wounds are
Thread the light through the flesh
And push the needle past the rest
Through the bone, into the heart
Where madness ends and music starts
Listen
Don't worry
It won't be long
Just weave all your sadness into a song
And I know you will
I know you will
I know you will
Because I know you
I'm all right
You're not mine
I'm all right
I'll be fine
Just left with scars
To remind me where the wounds are
To remind me where the wounds are
Lace the ribbon up your back
And stitch the future to the past
When demons become friends at last
Hold them tight and heal the gash
Listen
Don't worry
It won't be long
Just spin all your nightmares into a song
I know you will
I know you will
Because I know you
Because I know you
I know you will
I know you will
Because I know you
It's all right
You'll survive
It's all right
You'll be fine
Just left with scars
To remind you where the wounds are
To remind you to
sew every glimmer you get to your skin
And let every sound you hear come crashing in
Knit your fragile veins to the wrists of your friends
And know that you will see them again
Sew every shimmer you get to your skin
And let every whisper come rushing back in
And pick up the stitches and start to mend
Love pierces through even death in the end
Love will pierce through even death in the end
Believe that you will see them again
(The spider knows)
You will

    General CommentThis song is amazing. I love all the imagery Hannah uses with the sewing, stitches, lace, weaving, and knitting. The song is like a tapestry that is created before your eyes. The meanings of love, loss, friendship, and death have never been pieced together so beautifully. All of these things are bonded together with the thread of life. "The spider knows"

    My OpinionWhat gorgeous lyrics. I haven't been able to find the song to listen to it yet, but I am in love with the lyrics.
    I don't know if she read 'Son of a Witch' as well as 'Wicked', but this song makes me think of Liir from that book being lead and healed by Candle and her music as light and music were weaved all through that part of the book.
