It's 3 o'clock in the morning
The daylight is long gone
They're on their way to the water
‘Cause they damn what we’ve become

The water's cold and dirty
It's soaking through my skirt
And I can hear their wings now
They’re coming, have you heard?

I walk a little slower
To watch you disappear
And yes I see them coming
North wind beneath their wings

We’re old enough to be grateful now
For what has been and what’s to come
On this day 2 years from now
The earth will finally take me home

And all the trees are whispering
They’re whispering your name
Since you walked away from here
I haven’t heard them say it again

Your silence it transformed me
Into someone you once knew
Hold me sorrow, hold me close
For his eyes are all I see

Don’t be afraid of the water
It’s more to me than a means to an end
It won’t let me drown tonight
It’s just a pond that holds my hand

And I long to be done with love
By the light of the morning sun
The wilderness is getting wilder now
A million eyes are now my own

I’ll write to you until I’m nothing
And I hope you’ll love me then
What’s over isn’t over
It’ll start to grow again

Now please give them your silence
And walk these 3 long miles
I’d drink your words, I’d drink them all
I promise, I’ll be kind

This undefeatable agony
Will forever be my own
Now please write me your color
Mine is deep dark red
