Like a Stone

On a cold wet
Afternoon
No room for love and emptiness
By a freeway
I confess I was lost in the pages
Of a book
Full of death
Reading how we’ll die alone
And if a God will lay to rest
Anywhere we want to go
In your house
I long to be
Room by room
Patiently
I’ll wait for you there
Like a stone
I’ll wait for you there
Alone

And on my death bed
I will prey
To the gods and the angels
Like a pagan
To anyone who will take me to heaven
To a place
I would recall
I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised
The world was black
And there you led me on

In your house
I long to be
Room by room
Patiently
I’ll wait for you there
Liek a stone
I’ll wait for you there
Alone

In all I read
Till the day was gone
And I sat in regret
In all the things I’ve done
For all that I’ve blessed
And all that I’ve wronged
In dreams till my death
I will wonder on

In your house
I long to be
Room by room
Patiently
I’ll wait for you there
Like a stone
I’ll wait for you there
Alone
Alone
