lyrics

“Hang on” is what they tell me,
while I make shields from debris.
You are all I have known, dear
yet I lost it all at farewell.

But I can’t find you here
amongst all I know.
In love or doubt, Time brings us these gales.
And you hide me here: a fallout for home.
It brings you at once
and it brings me like a tornado.

You I sent down water; you wait out for all my help.
We had all we thought we’d need;
bruising up high on the wrong grief.

But I can’t find you here,
amongst all I know.
In love or doubt, Time brings us these gales.
And you hide me here: a fallout for home.
Oh, please don’t mind the storm
when it brings me to you
like a tornado.

It sure makes this long; it’s a good thing I’m strong.

“Hang on” is what they tell me.
But I need help with all of this holding.
