For Ethan.

lyrics

In passing days I've kept my ear pressed firmly to the ground
Skin mixed with dirt as I waited for a familiar sound
but nothing came to me

I'll be waiting for you to come back home
And if you never show, well, I'll still keep you close
to my heart, and in my soul.

Sunday morning gatherings still house an empty pew
As we raise our voices to the Lord I can't help but think on you
and re-stitch these stubborn wounds
They never mend, I don't let them.

I'll be waiting for you to come back home
And if you never show, well, I'll still keep you close
to my heart, and in my bones.

And I am told that time will heal the emptiness inside
You were full of love and full of life
Why do the best ones always have to die?

You gotta remember to never surrender the memories you left behind
You gotta remember that no one ever said life was fair unless they didn't try.
And my God, I never meant to blame you. I'm sorry if I tried
It's a celebration of a life that cared and mattered, and only left love behind.

Rest your eyes, and I'll close mine. A grave can never take your life.
Rest your eyes, and I'll close mine. Death can never take your life.
Rest your eyes, and I'll close mine, and we will be alright.
Rest your eyes, and I'll close mine. Death can never take your life.
