Look at the names carved into the rocks
Look at the days when they were lit up
Brush of my hand, and I feel their age
Years of radiance, years of rain

And the world stops spinning when you stop spinning
And sighs when you sigh, when you sigh

I'm coming home, so leave the light on for me
I'm drawing over the luminous veil
And when I get in I will see you all there
I'm drawing on the great exhale

Uncertain ground, so I walk lightly
Translating names of lost families
Somebody's sleeping, that you should not wake
Drifting whispers over damp clay

And the world stops spinning when you stop spinning
And sighs when you sigh, when you sigh

I'm coming home, so leave the light on for me
I'm drawing over the luminous veil
And when I get in I will see you all there
I'm drawing on the great exhale

Wide open spaces
Been asleep a long time
Punctuating places
Coming up like old teeth

I'm coming home, so leave the light on for me
I'm drawing over the luminous veil
And when I get in I will see you all there
I'm drawing on the great exhale
I'm soaring in on the great exhale
