Stretched as thin as paper, hollow as the sky
Empty as my pockets, hungry as my eyes
Wells fill from the bottom, and it's gonna take some time
It's gonna take a little doing,to gather my insides
Such a wide-open space. such a wide and open ache
With answers to these hard and silent whys
Look as far as you can toward the horizon
Hear the low sound of the glory train
Chances are I'll live to see the new moon risin'
But I believe the likes of you
I'll never see again

On the wings of hope and angels, in the sounds of solitude
I've circled ever closer to the heart of something true
Most courage is an answer, a firm or shaky "yes"
When you cannot see the outcome, but still giving it your best
Such a wide-open space. such a wide and open ache
With answers to these hard and silent whys
I saw you walk away, I saw you waving
I know your leaving here, always to stay
Is this a bad hand or just a slow horse
Is it alright in time and due course

In the normal course of walking over roads of light and storm
With grief as a companion I have already come
Some days it's hard to take a step and avoid another fall
Still believing in the dark horse, when it's way to close to call.
Such a wide-open space. such a wide and open ache
With answers to these hard and silent whys
