Hollow For Your Heart


Down the river and a ways from home,

Miles passed and miles to go

But my head is quiet and my burden light

I take your heaviness and you take mine



We can stay and watch the fire burn

My hands won't shake with yours to keep them warm

And you can lay your head down in the dark,

And I will make a hollow for your heart


The sun has set on yet another day,

But light will linger with me if you stay

Someday the world spins far too fast

Rest your bones and watch it pass




I won't shiver as winter nears, I know

Come morning, you'll still be here

You'll still be here
