lyrics

I'll talk to quiet and see what silence has to say
About the nature of my breakableness
But I'll be healed for good someday

Cause Father, I'm getting older
And these wounds collect like marks
On a knobby wooden tree trunk
But these leaves still stretch towards the sun

So I won't uncurl this curious twist across my lips
And I won't loose heart or hope
And the sticky little leaves coming from their buds in spring
Remind me

There's hope, there's hope
There's hope for me

So when you say you put forever in my heart
Does that explain why these passing days can
Make me so damn sad

'Cause Father, I keep getting older
And as beginnings meet their ends
I'm always half full, and half dead, and half way there
But I just know there's something more

So I won't believe these half-sighted lies
And I won't grow bitter or cold
And the sticky little leaves coming from their buds in spring
Remind me

There's hope
