Track Name: Centuries
when all that's left is love
slow the heartbeat into silence
surrender to the violence in your blood
for there will come soft rains again
and you will see the silent hand of God
the past is no one

stuttering you'll go
to where your feet recall the footsteps
that were taken here so many years before
as if by no one
as if by nothing more than circumstance you rose

i'll try to catch
the bliss of these moments that pass
before they fall behind me
as you do
as you did

for centuries i roamed
(baby won't you come home)
as silent as the snow

the past is yourself
in the moments where you lose yourself you live
tell me, is this all there is?
the sum of all these yesterdays is loss
tell me it's the same for you
meeting eyes could bring a heart to beat and how
and yet now
all this sentiment amounts to little more
than scattered ashes on the ground

try to catch
the bittersweet moments that pass
before they fall behind you
as I will
as I do

for centuries I roamed
silent as the snow
