lyrics

WAKING HEART

You’ve been holding out
Sleeping for so long
You never even knew
That anything was wrong
And then it came one night
It gave you such a start
You looked all around
But it was the sound
Of your waking heart

You never learned to build
The fences in your west
To let in what you need
And to keep out all the rest
Now you’re staking your claims
Re-drawing maps and charts
You’re trying to decide
If I’m on the side
Of your waking heart

Your waking heart
Your waking heart

I make a lot of noise
I stretch out on your land
I know I make it hard
For you to make a stand
So if I have to go
For you to learn the art
I’ll be the one to leave
So you can believe
In your waking heart

Chorus

Now you’re losing the signal
The volume’s getting weaker
And you’re scared that the voice might disappear
It’s getting hard to listen
With all the interference
And the voice that you heard is no longer clear

I’ll do my best to wait
I try to give you space
I know you need some time
For the truth you’ve got to face
But if you can’t be whole
You know I’d rather be apart
I could never stay
Standing in the way
Of your waking heart
I’d never make you try
You can never lie

To a waking heart.
