lyrics

The story starts with the ending
Heartbreak’s born in befriending

The wind can't make a crack in the willow's spine
And no season has freedom so live blind to time
While the calls are on hold, the telephones all grow old
But hope is sewn deep into my pillow.

Your small life’s weight is deceiving
Love the lightness in breathing

My hope is sewn deep

The past has passed and I've calmed at last
The kinder cup has been filled
I'll pour you all a waterfall
Now that my river has stilled.

Ties are untaught like time is
Unseen cords form and bind us

The wind can't make a crack in the willow's spine
And no season has freedom so live blind to time
While the call is on hold, telephones all grow old
Hope is sewn deep into my pillow
Hope is sewn deep into my pillow.
