How long must I stare into this window?
How long 'til I see the things I need?
'Cause I've been looking now for days
Hoping that I'd cross your gaze
And see myself inside your weary eyes.

How long must I sing these songs of sorrow?
What's the trick ot get the darkness out?
'Cause I've been singing now for hours
Hoping for some special powers
Teach me all the things that I can do to bring you back

I sing these hymns to call you in
I shout these songs to let you go
I use my voice to fill the space that I am in
It's a space I do not know

How deep can I dig into your past?
To hold on tight and hope that it will last
You were drifting now you're gone
You were weak and now you're strong
Teach me all the words that I can say to bring you back

Show me signs to let me know that I will be okay
Salve for sadness, balm for this mess that I sift through everyday
You are arrows tipped with pine, shot through chests and left behind
On the forest floor where I will wait 'til you come home

I sing these hymns to call you in
I shout these songs to let you go
I use my voice to fill the space that I am in
It's a space I do not know
