lyrics

Taste these words upon my tongue – I’m not sure where they come from.
The deepest dark of heart is stone – mine it ‘til you bring me home.

Feel the wind upon my check – I do not know what I seek.
Sail to catch the eventide – find me in the seabird’s cry.

The world is wide, the world is long, we only live to greet the dawn.
The world is high, the world is deep, we only live when not asleep.

See the lines upon my back – can I sense the things I lack.
Ev’ry day is marked with toil – know the richness of this soil.

The world is wide, the world is long, we only live to greet the dawn.
The world is high, the world is deep, we only live when not asleep.

Smell the rain upon my face – there is peace within this place.
Salt streams touch a father’s heart – this is where our ways must part.

The world is wide, the world is long, we only live to greet the dawn.
The world is high, the world is deep, we only live when not asleep.

Won’t you take a white stone for your name?
An answer for the pain that’s still burning deep inside.
Won’t you join the saints around the throne?
An answer to the groan that is the spirit’s wordless cry.

The world is wide, the world is long, we sing the everlasting song!
The world is high, the world is deep, we are alive when not asleep.
