When I'm cold and alone all I
want is my freedom, and
a sudden gust of gravity
I stop wailing an kicking just
to let this water cover me,
cover me,
Only if I rest my arms,
rest my mind,
You'll overcome me and swell
up around me,
With my fighting so vain,
with my vanity so faught,
I'm rolling over
'Cause in just the same way
that the stream becomes swollen,
swollen with cold up over the ground,
When my heart draws close
to the close of Autumn

Your love abounds.
All the time I'm thinking,
wondering how would it be
to breath in deep.
I guess I need to be careful
when I ask for a drink

(just might get what I ask for).
And I know just what You'd
say to me,
that's why I don't ask You.
What would I ask You?
I'm like a bull-headed boy
these days, crying

my toy's gone...

You're shiny and new

Guess I'll drop my anger here
before I float away
and the chains around me.
An awful lot of talking,
I don't leave You much to say;
You didn't ever leave me-
And my greatest fear was
You'd leave me here.
A long time back my feet
could touch the bottom.
