The only time I ever heard the voice of God
Was in the silence of the night in the arms of the one I love.
Staring at the ceiling up above
Like it contained the secrets of the stars.

Anytime I ever woke up in a dream
I saw my shadow there, staring back at me.
Moving through the walls and wandering
As all the world rose up inside of me.

And I long to hear the melody
That one time played inside my mind.
And to love another helplessly,
So breathing feels like putting out a fire.

Anytime my life flashes right in front me
I see a child there as if on a screen
Standing in the shadows flickering
For a moment I’d know what it means.

All this time I lived inside a memory
Daylight creeping in through a crack in the weathered seams
Severing the ties and trembling
Losing all the voices in the wind.

And I long to hear the melody
That one time played inside my mind
And to love another helplessly
So breathing feels like putting out a fire.
