don't hide this time
i can't take that
show up uninvited
grab me by the hand
laugh loudly
like footprints in the garden
and dancing on the roof
tell me that there's proof
that babies born can conquer death
songs can carry every breath
hope is twin to faith
but i can't recall her face.

no one can find us
under the oak trees
sunlight shines through
the ache is quiet
if i had words i'd speak
if i had a song i'd sing
your eyes are saving me
your blood is in my years
and grace is in your tears.
