Lyrics

Trouble and Truth: Lyrics

It’s in the emptiness of the light

The holy turning of day to night

Slipping quietly through the trees

Bringing my lonely heart to its knees

 

You only ask me to love and to live

If I could only believe – I could give

If I could feel then I’d surely try

To reinvent this and make it fly

 

It’s a strange bliss

Finally got you on the line

Been starving for connection

And running out of time

It’s a cruel twist

Rising up like the rain

Bringing trouble and truth

To my heart again

 

Now I’m a crow bending in flight

Heading for things that’s just out of sight

Sharpening my wings on the clouds and the rain

Flying faster than a spinning weather vane

 

Now I’m a sparrow chasing the breeze

Raking the wind for the things that it needs

But things slide through your hands even when you’re good

You do what you do and you did what you could

 

I’ve been climbing not sure why

It’s a rickety ladder goes a little too high

But up on the roof there you don’t wear a skirt

And you pledge your allegiance to the sky and the dirt

 

It’s a strange bliss

Finally got you on the line

Been starving for connection

And running out of time

It’s a cruel twist

Rising up like the rain

Bringing trouble and truth

To my heart again
