you should take your time,
when gathering
stones to make the house
that you're building.

because you were there
when i was building my own,
and everything was wrong.
but we couldn't know.

if you'll just wait here,
i will go get help.
but if i can't come back,
then i wish you well.

all the western winds
are blowing strong,
and with just a little touch
they will chill our bones.

so hold yourself up
in the house that you built
and wait for it to go
until you come back out.

if you'll just wait here,
i will go get help.
but if i can't come back,
then i wish you well.

and i know this won't
be the worst of it.
and i know you know,
oh you know best.

so take all your time when gathering
stones for the house that you're building.
