LYRICS - Granite

Granite

by Charity Kahn

‚Äč

if you went away
my heart would sink
to the center of the earth
my whole world
is open, laid bare
unfurled

sleepin' with angels
on a cloud so high
I came upon a dream
dancin' with the devil
in a fire so hot
things are as they seem

ragged edges
tattered soul
restless heart
find a way across now
to my home
hold it strong
life's as hard as granite
but I love you like the songs

in the stars

where are the legends
of childhood
and the stories that got us through
lines drawn down
then laid to waste
the labyrinth we once knew

true love tryin’
so hard to exist
ocean in a drop of rain
wind comes down
and drives it home
rides it hard, drives it insane

ragged edges
tattered soul
restless heart
find a way across now
to my home
hold it strong
life's as hard as granite
but I love you like the songs

in the stars

don’t tell me
we can’t cross that line
we hold it in our hands
 
come into my sanctuary
come and taste my absolution
come and share the roaring silence
come and know my wild untouched
come and be inside my ocean
come and live awhile beside me
come and feel how time is frozen
come and love me like a song

come inside my raindrop
‘cause you can hear
the stars sing in here
you can hear
the stars fall in here
you can know
the stars love in here

come inside my little raindrop
come inside my little raindrop
come inside my little raindrop
come inside
