Hiding Place

When the moon spills the light
Over oceans and dunes again tonight
And you cannot shake this feeling inside
Come, I’ll kiss it out of your silent mouth
Never even ask what you’re silent about

 

I’m the birth of a tear
In the dark, in the cold embrace of fear
In the eye of every sinner in hell
Soothing like a prayer on a hopeless day
Bare your scars before me, I won’t look away

The world, it is sinking
But mine’s such a fine boat
Climb atop darling
Oh I’ll keep you afloat
Be your hiding place
On the rocking waves

We’ll rise in the morning pure
We’ll rise in the morning pure
And innocent, innocent
(x4)

If you’re thinking right now
That the past is alive and we should bow
We should bow before the power it holds
The terrifying certainty of a reckoning
One for every burden you carry within

 

There’s a place, an invisible space
In the depth of an embrace
A safe haven where forgiveness awaits
Come and stay a moment, however brief
Let me wash over your island of grief

 

The world, it is sinking
But mine’s such a fine boat
Climb atop darling
Oh I’ll keep you afloat
Be your hiding place
On the rocking waves

We’ll rise in the morning pure
We’ll rise in the morning pure
And innocent, innocent
(x4)

Come and lay down
Come and lay down
Come and lay down a minute 
(x4)
