I had big idea
I had a lazy eye
I broke the sacred seal
I told a lazy lie
I've had my conscience bent
I've had my patience tried
I've been up in the desert
And down by the riverside

Will the eagle try
If the sky's untrue
Do the faithful sigh
Because they are so few
Remember when I cried
Remember when you knew
Remember that look in your eyes
I know I do

And count the stars to measure tme
The earth is hard, the treasure fine
To the sea I'll crawl on my knees

Feel it coming in
Feel it going out
Water covers sand
Blood covers doubt
So I begin again
Again, the healing bow
There was a time that I might have surrendered
But not now

Consult the cards to measure mine
The earth is hard, but the treasure fine
At the sea, I'll wait on my knees

    General CommentThis is one of the most lyrically beautiful songs I have ever heard. The entire second verse is so agonizingly well worded. This is a powerful song about infidelity and the loss that results. This and Charlie Peacock's My Mind Played a Trick on Me are two songs that I wish did not speak to me the way that they do.
