Like A Stone



On a cobweb afternoonIn a room full of emptinessBy a freeway, I confessI was lost in the pagesOf a book full of deathReading how we'll die aloneAnd if we're good we'll lay to restAnywhere we want to go
(chorus)In your house, I long to be Room by room, patientlyI'll wait for you there Like a stoneI'll wait for you there Alone
On my deathbed, I will prayTo the gods and the angelsLike a pagan to anyoneWho will take me to heavenTo a place I recallI was there so long agoThe sky was bruisedThe wine was bledAnd there you led me on
In your house, I long to be Room by room, patientlyI'll wait for you there Like a stoneI'll wait for you there Alone
And on I readUntil the day was goneAnd I sat in regretOf all the things i've doneFor all that I've blessedAnd all that I've wrongedIn dreams until my deathI will wander on
