lyrics

lyrics by Ethan Nickerson
music by The Mines

Can I be here, facing the dawn when I go home;
Behind me, the ground disappears, each step of the way...
The sand on my feet, the breath of my father leads me on;
I dreamed of that harbor once, but I couldn't stay...

And I'm drawn on to find You,
And there's more ground before me,
And it's for this that I live.

The more that I move, the less that I want to find the end;
My scales begin to fall, like waves on the sea...
There's nothing to prove, and nothing requires me to pretend;
The boundaries weren't there at all, so who can I be?

And I'm drawn on to find You,
And there's more ground before me,
And it's for this that I live.

I'll trade you sway for sway, the night before the day,
the dawn's silhouette;
The breaking, the light bleeds in, as the curtain is torn.
You made us soul for soul, and threw the clock away,
and I feel the debt;
And all this, to sing to me, so that I am reborn.

And I'm drawn on to find You,
And Your voice carries me,
And it's for this that I live.
