How long will your crowns stay gold?
Will it slip away and leave when you're old?
I'll wait where the tall tree bends.
If you find me, I'll be with you near the end.

How long before that fear sets in?
Will it come to you to wash away your sin?
How long before you cut me down to size?
However long it takes you to realize.

Oh, my love - you're not alone.
Oh, my love - you're not alone.

And you move around in this city.
It's veins shaped your history.
I know you've been far from home -
and that medicine cuts right to the bone.

I see the grief got caught on your face.
Running from a nameless place.
Go tell your father you didn't mean to lie.
Don't worry about us - we'd never ask you "why?"

Oh, my love - you're not alone.
Oh, my love - you're not alone.

You'll take off your sides.
That river runs wide.
You'll wait where only better winds have blown.
For a little peace of mind - it's a hard way to be.
For a little peace of mind - that's a hard way to be.
