lyrics

LYRICS
Early light like summer ghosts
Stealing softly through my mind
Stuccoed walls in seamless motion
Shadows of a day gone by
When the day is easy
We count the faces in the clay
Count the days between us
Consider reasons we could stay

Morning
Wake up to the wind outside your door
I wanted to hold you
I wanted to pull you a little closer to me

Turn your eyes and shut the door
When were we alone before?
All the seasons and the days
All the things that keep us waiting
It’s like running through the sand
Spilling out of broken glass
Running through your hands
Hold it there to make it last

Morning
Wake up to the wind outside your door
I wanted to hold you
I wanted to pull you a little closer to me

Morning
Wake up to the wind outside your door
I wanted to hold you
I wanted to pull you a little closer to me

Faces in the moon tonight
Catch 'em while they’re still in flight
Passing skies like skipping stones
Turn your eyes and then it’s gone
Lighter than the air
Closer when the day is done
Spinning to the edge
Hold me closer ‘til the morning
