Marble Steps



I climb the marble stairs that lead away
Away from everything I used to know
I try to keep my eyes down on the way
The way my mother told me not to go

Well all I ever wanted was
A hand to hold me down
To keep the sky from swallowing me up
And all I ever needed was someone to come around
And tell me that Iíve suffered long enough

So take me away
Find me a home
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I wonder when Iíll see the stars again
I thought that they had faded long ago
With every step Iím closer to the end
I'm climbing 'cause I don't know where to go

Well all I ever wanted was
A place to store my faith
I thought that I could keep it locked away
It burns my eyes to look at him
And see the truth inside
And so I turn my broken face away

So take me away
Find me a home
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I always dreamed of Sundays together with you
Only your echoes can break my heart
I need a hand to hold me, to keep me on land
I fear Iím drifting too far apart

Well all I ever wanted was
A hand to hold me down
To keep the sky from swallowing me up
And all I ever needed was someone to come around
And tell me that Iíve suffered long enough

Oh, take me away
Find me a home
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I'm on my way
On my way
I'm on my way
And now Iím gone
I'm gone
I'm on my way
