lyrics

The hours turn and
Our time is paid in tears
The constant noise won't
Silence all my fears
So I left my home
A ringing in my ears
When the noise dies down I find
You're already here

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song
How good to be made
So small

In the cool of the trees
Shaded from the light
Gnarled limbs grow long
On every side
Then sheer and quick
I am at the edge
The land opens wide and
I am at the edge

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song
How good to be made
So small

You go before me
A glimmer in your eye
You speak in gems
Your silence loud and bright
Oh hallowed, you
Breathe the depths of me
Your bow is on
My lowest strings

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song

The earth in song

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song
How good to be made
So small

How good to be made
So small
