1. Stay and Wait


Gonna gather it up
All the pieces I broke
Wanna make it in time
to see the fire and the smoke
And I would leave this town
if it wasn't my home
Because it broke my heart
then made me a woman

Then the rain would fall
and fill the river to the top
I would sit and watch
I would walk and walk
My shoes are worn
the sky gets torn
the human heart
grows on its own accord

Blame whoever
you wanna blame
Name whoever
you wanna name
But I owe this to my mother and my father
my sister and my brother
and to my self

Thought I had to leave
that I stayed too long
and for a while believed
that my choice was wrong
If the world gets quiet, or old enough
I would my sing my song
and let it hold me up.
