Jacob’s Song

Jacob’s Song

The first thing I did when I got out of bed
Was to fall to my knees and put my hands on my head
When the daylight called me I closed the blinds
Cause without you dear I can’t tell time
And without you dear I can’t tell time

And I thirst for you, and I’m hungry too
And I’m calling in the darkness cause your eyes are blue
The first thing I said when they asked my name
Was that I’m lost in the world and I’m tired of this game
Yes I’m lost in the world and I’m tired of this game

Weeks pass by at an angel’s pace
And the statue by the river leaves an empty space
And they wonder I wander in the whispering wilds
But without you dear I’m a helpless child
And without you dear I’m a helpless child

And I thirst for you, and I’m hungry too
And I’m calm in the darkness cause your eyes are blue
The last thing I said when I asked my name
Is that I’m lost in this world and I’m tired of this game
Yes I’m lost in this world and I’m tired of this game

They found me by the railroad tracks
With a star on my head and an ex on my back
And they called my mother and they asked my age
But without you dear I’m an empty page
And without you darling I’m an empty page

And I search for you in the wind at dawn
And I listen for your voice when the daylight’s gone
And I know you’ll come back when I call your name
And I know that this time is an empty pain
And I know if I call you’ll come back to me
But without you my dear I don’t know how to speak
And without my dear I don’t know how to speak

And I thirst for you, and I’m hungry too
Cause the world is missing colors from your eyes so blue
The only thing I said when they asked my name
Is that I’m lost in this world, and I’m tired of this game
Yes I’m lost in this world, and I’m tired of this game

And I thirst for you, and I’m hungry too
And I’m drinking in the desert cause your eyes are blue
And when I lay in bed I whisper your name
Because I miss you dear and I’m tired of this game
Yes I miss you dear and I’m tired of this game
If you listen close you can hear your name

Make It Through

Say it before it goes away
Feelings are so fleeting it isn’t allowed to last
I promise one day this will all make sense
And I’ll sweep you away to a castle in Ireland
You and I can forget this life we lived in this tiny box
You and I will stand on parapets and breathe the earth
You and I will see the stars the way they were meant to be seen
You and I will laugh at how silly we’ve been
You and I will kiss beneath a sky that doesn’t care at all what we get up to
When no one can see me
When no one can see you
You’re allowed to breathe me
If I’m allowed to miss you
And if you chance to see me
And if I chance to kiss you
Then we work this out together
Then we can dream of something better
Just hold on
We’ll get through this
You promised you’d stay if I promised you the same
So don’t forget the words we spoke and don’t forget my name
Remember I care where you are and how you feel
Remember I’m worrying but soon this may be real
Give it time, give it a chance
Give it some space and let it learn to dance
We’ll get through this together
We will find each other
In moonlight in starlight in parapets of aging stone
On a rooftop far away in the night sky you and I
We can make this
We can get through this
