And if the waters rise up
And drown out the whole city
And all of the houses where we live
A shimmering light spinning
Each of the waves bearing a name,
The name of the body
Somewhere below
And to all the saints who drowned in the sea,
I am still here with you
And if there’s nothing living to be,
I will be here with you

And when all of this has turned its course
I’m gonna see you
Not always walking,
Always walking through the door
Did you build walls up,
Did you build them up all around you
To keep you from,
To keep you from the howling wind
And to each one seeking the words that they need,
I’ll stand beside you now
And to each one listening to wind in the trees,
My voice behind you now
And I can see she’s one of us
In how I stand beside you now

This is where we are
This is where we are
Don’t be frightened
This is where we are
This is where we are
Don’t be frightened

Do you think when he died
He was alone
There is the room with yellow walls
When I left it was rising
Not the sun this time
The tide if I recall
And we built up a fire,
To remind us of the people,
The people that we are
And the flames rose like spires
In the houses there
And we lost way and said,
“Do you think when I die,
I’ll be alone
Deep in the room with yellow walls?
Will you leave when its rising up all around you,
All around you?
And you build me fire
To remind you of the person,
The person that he was
The flames rise like spires
In the houses
And everyone says,
“This is where we are.
This is where we are.
Don’t be frightened.”
