lyrics

So the heart,
she raises her voice she says,
“It’s time to let go”
And the mind, full of worry
frets back, “But how do you know?”
So the heart says,
“Do the waves hold to the shore;
when they kiss, do they want more?
And when the trees weep their autumn leaves
do they wonder: how do I let these go?”
They just let go

I dream of you
in the morning when the stars fade
I wake without you
and wonder how is this new way
I sweetly lay myself down

I bravely return to me
I return to me

So the child who scrapes her knee
cries out, “Oh mama please come hold me”
When no one comes to her cries
she dries her eyes, gets up
and walks on
How do we learn to be alone
to hold ourselves when no one’s home
to be ok with the pain
to watch it pass
just as the waves slip from the shore
not needing anything more

I dream of you
in the morning when the stars fade
I wake without you
and wonder how is this new way
I sweetly lay myself down
I bravely return to me
I return to me
