lyrics

Getting close.
Hold the doors for me.
Let me slip into them one more time.
Because I've got this feeling
That my chances are running low.

If I fall
Will you come for me?
Leave the comfort of the fire place?
Because I've got this feeling
I can't stand on these paper legs.

Turn me, turn me, turn me, turn me 'round.
Deep in, deep in, deep into the ground.

There's a longing that I hide
Watching fading distant light
Through a window in a door
That won't open anymore.

So let me hear that sound.
The thunder from the other side.
A life we lived out loud.
The mountains we would try to climb.
Take my aching hands.
I've taken all I can.
Just let me hear that sound again.

Something lurks
Just behind you.
I see the shadows as they undulate.
And I've got this feeling
My belief was a big mistake.

It spins me, spins me, spins me, spins me 'round
Deep in, deep in, deep into the ground.

And your face is looking strange.
Seem I haven't seen it change.
In silent stops along the way
We let the stations fade away.

So let me hear that sound.
The thunder from the other side.
A life we lived out loud.
The mountains we would try to climb.
Take my shaking hands.
I've taken all I can.
Just let me hear that sound again.
