Before it took you away
I tried to think of something I could say
I watch the shadows in the hall
How they dance with the light and the white on the wall

Your face in these pictures looks like a poem
Your eyes lit up like a river stone
Your body so much like a blanket thrown
On a warm bed at night, like a house in a storm

Then you walk right through the doorway
You tell me you're here to stay
"The worst is gone and my God, how long
Have you been here this way?"

I surprise myself sometimes
The way the days unfold and this road unwinds
You tell me you see it too
And the miles feel like inches when I think of you

It's been 25 days since I've been gone
25 weeks since I've seen my home
I spent 25 months chasing this song
And all of this time I've been alone

Then you walk right through the doorway
You tell me you're here to stay
"The worst is gone and my God, how long
Have you been here this way?"

And you knew it all along
I was unhappy all along
And your body whole and warm telling
Me to just come home

Then you walk right through the doorway
You tell me you're here to stay
"The worst is gone and my God, how long
Have you been here this way?"

And I only just learned how to stand like a man
I've got 25 years of running in sand
How could I see with no ground at my feet
What you gave to me when I was caught in the storm
That I wasn't alone
