Lyrics

The fortune teller waits for another chance
Puts her hand on mine, her eyes are closed
I stare out the window at the icicles
So much higher than I think I’ll ever go

Drinking in the noise of the evening air
Fading out like a man
Sometimes I can’t belong anywhere
But I’ve been thinking that since my thoughts began

And don’t you know - the miracle of silence
Oh don’t you know - was broken by the sirens
Oh yes I know, I know, I know
I know, I know
I’ll be home soon

He says that the mornings are for letting go
Takes another breath, looks at his notes
I stare out the window at the icicles
Winter’s tears sharpened by the cold

And just like that I’m running down an empty road
Running like the future is unknown
Across the bridge and over to the places I have never gone
I kept on until my lungs explode

And I said
Help me
Help me know
I can be
I can be all
I can be
Before it’s done

And I said
Help me
Help me know
I can be
I can be all
I can be
Before it’s done

And don’t you know – even in the darkness
There is a glow – underneath the harshness
Oh yes I know, I know, I know
I know, I know
I’ll be home soon
