She'll never know
When she tells you goodnight
The fear that you hide
As she lays by your side

When you stand
All the thoughts of a man
Etched right in your face
Still she lays there

How the warm
How the god in you so
Is the stuff of these bones
Once broken and cold

And you go home
And you sleep in your bed
Feel like you're dancing in sync
With the ghosts in your head

And she waits
You say, go back to sleep
And you dare never say
The greatest secret you keep

Is that you might be alone
That you might have to run
That the rest of your life
Will be a series of nights

That you spend in your mind
Staring backwards through to time
At something you lost

And you'll never be home
You'll never be warm
Eyes closed in the sun
On a warm day in June

But on the damp, dirty floor
Of your wintry cold room
YOu see a face in the dust
How it fills you up

And you say hello
Please don't ever leave
Please don't ever go

And you can call me a man
It's etched right in my face
But it can never stand
The endless expanse of space

All around us alone
Just this once my home
One brief moment of time
The only thing I call mine

It's this line that we cross
Now we came like a call
Of everything that I love
