lyrics

You print light upon my pages, Take away the load of ages
You make this emptiness a home, Breathe flesh to my wasted bone

I turn the leaf, I turn the dial, Turn away from the denial
Listen closely for the sound, As you lift me off the ground

Winds that carry me on farther, Things that I would have done rather
Lines delivered emptily, I play the part but it's not me

Oh I play the part, And though I know the words by heart by now
I just fail somehow, To convince myself

You make sense of all my failures, Endure the oddest of behaviors
You give me guidance when I err, Help me see when my eyes blur

Yes you made me realize that, It's not the number or the size that
determines what you have achieved, It's what you do, what you believe

You're the wind that takes me farther, You're the life that I'd live rather
Than lines delivered emptily, I played the part it ain't me

Oh I play the part, And though I know the words by heart by now
I just fail somehow, To convince myself
