the moon on the hill

Be prepared
I can see it in the air
I was just wishing
Fading in the grass basking in the sunlight
In the breaking and the breathing
Or a ceiling made of stars
Tonight I'm running wild
that long last time

What do you say, is there a way
will there be someone to remember
a little place that we loved
I'm waiting
To hear your voice again
And just be pure wind

And lighten up this heart

I don't have to answer any of these questions
No one feels the same
Hush, sleep, don't think

I'm still taken by surprise
I hold sunlight and swallow fireflies
So we could walk down to the sea
But he never ever asks a single thing about me
And I am walking with my Savior
And it makes me want to cry

How will we laugh just like before
I miss the way you
How the music played all night and day
through the windows up above
I miss the way you
Said "I love you but, I don't even know why"
I miss the way you sing with me
"I see you in every little thing"

Well in my mind
we can conquer the world
You and I
It's true
I wish I could have stood where you would have been proud
Second rate
Fragile flame
Little inside and filled with pride
it's such a bitter end
no tears to damn you
when jealousy burns

But darling, I wish you well
I can tell how hard you're trying
And I would still be on my feet
From time to time
I was wrong I confess
It kind of makes me very happy
Someone like you
I wished I'd a known you
I wished I'd a shown you
But love grows old and waxes cold
And the moon don't make me dance
And I didn't know what to say
No one sees the same

I'm holding on to stupid memories
And it's in, it's in your eyes

 I will hold back the pain
We may never see each other again
a long night turns into a couple long years
disappearing everyday without so much as a word
you never gave a damn for me
for anything
it's such a bitter end
I didn't know what to say
But I said a prayer for him anyway

My Savior walks with me

Sometimes all we do is cope
Breathe in faith and hope
Grab a hold of that little song bird
Hold her in my arms tell her I'll be alright
The things I want inside
Ain't no way
that won't happen now

And the stories that fell from the sky that day
On your way to the wishing well
I just have this secret hope
The voices inside you that fill you with dread
Make the sound of thousands of angels instead
And fade away like morning dew
I'd still be on my feet

If you're listening, hear me pray
Have yourself a merry little christmas
