Look at the names carved into us
Look at the days when they were lit up
Brushing my head and I feel their age
Years of radiance, years of rain

And the world stops spinnin' when you stop spinnin'
Sighs when you sigh, when you sigh
I'm coming home so leave the light on for me
I'm drawing over the lunarless veil
When I'll get in I will see you all there
I'm drawing on the great exhale

Uncertain ground so I walk lightly
Translating names of lost families
Somebody's sleeping that you should not wake
Drifting whispers over their grave

And the world stops spinnin' when you stop spinnin'
Sighs when you sigh when you sigh
I'm coming home so leave the light on for me
I'm drawing over the lunarless veil
When I'll get in I will see you all there
I'm drawing on the great exhale

Wide open spaces
Been asleep a long time
Punctuating places
Coming out like old teeth

I'm coming home so leave the light on for me
I'm drawing over the lunarless veil
When I'll get in I will see you all there
I'm drawing on the great exhale
I'm soaring in on the great exhale
