She's been watching the sun set
For the past couple months
As it dies in the west
And she says, hey how appropriate.
It's like he made it for me
As the scorched earth rejects the rain
And the saline begins to hurt
She says, the desert holds my soul
I am one with the dirt

This silent desert scene screams things
Her mouth would never ever dare
Of hopeless hoping lost inside
Of a quiet, sincere, muffled prayer

And she says
I've fallen farther then I wish to admit
One burning failure, a flagrant hypocrite
And all this failing
Just to feel like I belong

He's been watching the road now
For the past couple months
Like an expectant child
His faith and the look in his eyes
Would drive a sane man wild
He says no storm last forever
it may seem that way while we're here
but hope lives is every corner, every minute in every tear

Photo albums on the floor
Reminding him how it was before
Before the world stopped turning
Before his heart was burning

And he says
Look back, look up at my outstretched arms
Open your ears and hear my song
And all this longing
To show you where you belong
