Like A Stone

By

On a cobweb afternoon
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages of a book full of death
Reading how we’ll die alone
And if we’re good we’ll lay to rest
Anywhere we wanna go

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I’ll wait for you there like a stone
I’ll wait for you there alone

And on my deathbed I will pray to the gods and the angels
Like a pagan to anyone who will take me to heaven
To a place I recall, I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised, the wine was bled, and there you led me on

In your house I long to be
Room by room, patiently
I’ll wait for you there like a stone
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone

And on I read until the day was gone
And I sat in regret of all the things I’ve done
For all that I’ve blessed, and all that I’ve wronged
In dreams until my death I will wander on

In your house I long to be
Room by room, patiently
I’ll wait for you there like a stone
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone
