lyrics

Sweet Sister

Eyes without longing
ear that hears no beat
heart left artless
hands that have never known a need

Sparrow on your rooftop
lilies upon the sill
the ocean lies out your window
yet nothing holds you in its spell

You are a fleeting hour
You're a faded summer day

Can you see it
Can you feel it
You child of an ancient sin
your mind is the stillest water
aching for a terrifying wind

You who couldn't see
with ears that couldn't hear
hearts that could not sense
when he began to leave

This is why
your ageless father turned
and walked away
It is finished
and I am crying
while you hold fast
to the ashes of your broken home
and you hold his memory
in your frail hands
Sweet sister
let it fall
