Wait a minute, baby
Stay with me awhile
Said you'd give me light
But you never told me 'bout the fire

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
When you build your house
Then call me home

And he was just like a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match, he was singing
And undoing, and undoing the laces
Undoing the laces

Said Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, never stop
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
But when you build your house
Then call me home

Hold on
The night is coming and the starling flew for days
I'll stay home at night, all the time
I'd go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
Ask me and I'm there, yeah
Ask me and I'm there, I care

In the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
They say it doesn't matter anymore
If you build your house
Then please call me home

Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, and don't you ever stop
Now it's gone
No it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
I'll come by

Sara
Sara

    General CommentThe reason I think this is about a woman who is grown up is the verse that says,

    "And he was just like a great dark wing
    Within the wings of a storm
    I think I had met my match, he was singing
    And undoing the laces
    Undoing the laces"

    This sounds to me like meeting a man who thinks she is the perfect match and undoing the laces - well to me that sounds like a sexual metaphor. I'm not quite sure whether Sara is supposed to be a child, grown up, or in-between, but the sexual metaphor is what made me think this is about someone coming of age.
