lyrics

I’ve been sitting by the window
Waiting for a star to shoot by
Hoping for a glimmer in my eye
But it didn’t fly past tonight

I said I’m sorry but it won’t pay the bills
Can’t cash in words for gold
The truth filled me with sight
But I couldn’t open my eyes

I said it isn’t but it’s over
And you’re gone though you didn’t go
This house just ain’t a home
Oh no

Apologies limply hang like clothes hung out to dry
Full of broken dreams we wanted but didn’t have the strength to try
I’ll be hoping for the best to come
But preparing for the worst
Looking forward to a life to love even if it doesn’t hold you

The rain is pouring down
Upon this hollow ground
Its come to clean out my soul
Old soul

The greatest gifts in life are the things we can’t control
We plant, we feed and wait
But we just can’t make it grow
So I’m learning how to trust
To let go and be free
Be free with me

I said it isn’t but it’s over
And you’re gone though you didn’t go
This house just ain’t a home
Oh no
The rain is pouring down
Upon this hollow ground
Its come to clean out my soul
Old soul
