lyrics

I wipe a rag across the mirror, sweep up the dust that’s on the floor
I let the breeze in through the shutters and watch the morning greet the shore

I chop the wood, carry the water like before

and I bet Sarah’s waking up
the sun rising like a dream
Sarah’s waking up to a new day without me

I dig my hands into the compost, where everything I touch still turns to shit
but I’ve spread my sorrow on the surface of the earth and grown a new life out of it

chopping the wood, carrying water like before

and I bet Sarah’s waking up
the is sun rising all around
Sarah’s waking up and I am back on solid ground

sometimes you’re perfect for each other
so how could anything go wrong?
sometimes you start to plan a future
then your past goes off like a bomb
through all the fire and the thunder
I couldn’t hear her when she called
and sometimes you don’t get second chances
but it’s a miracle we both survived at all

So I carry water from the well and feed the wood into the stove
I bring the kettle to a boil, sing my little song of letting go

and don’t you know

I think things are looking up
the sun, it rises in mysterious ways
Sarah’s waking up and I’m getting stronger every day

I’m getting stronger every day
Sarah’s waking up
Sarah’s waking up
Sarah’s waking up
