it begins and ends in the house we built
measuring the years of our lives with every brick
wrapped around me now that you've stolen away
and stranded me with thin and wrinkled skin
stuck right here between now and forever
bound by ties I've promised never to sever
still hoping that you'll give me a sign

did I do enough, beloved
in the hallowed home that waits?
did I do enough, beloved
in the hallowed home that waits?
enough, beloved
in the hallowed home that waits
enough, beloved
in the hallowed home that waits
in the hallowed home that waits

can a memory burn into your soul
like an image caught on film?
if harmony can carry down the tunnel
take ours with you as you go

she wants to create an impression of life
she checks the messages, she checks the mail
still can't trace new memories in the dust
burdened by a guilt she can't identify
hoping against hope that she'll be given a sign

did I do enough, dear mother
in the hallowed home that waits?
did I do enough, dear mother
in the hallowed home that waits?
enough, dear mother
in the hallowed home that waits
enough, dear mother
in the hallowed home that waits

can a memory burn into your soul
like an image caught on film?
if harmony can carry down the tunnel
take ours with you as you go

can a memory burn into your soul
like an image caught on film?
if harmony can carry down the tunnel
take ours with you as you go

key in the lock, sealed the last time
exhaling regret and relief
'cause we''ll still remember you
'cause we'll still remember you

now and forever
now and forever
now and forever
now and forever
now and forever
now and forever
now and forever
now and forever
