The Love That Allows Me To Be

Where the heartache is the deepest where the old tears flow the sweetest; It's there that I'm making my home

In the deep woods of wisdom past the highways of flashing bright lights where you can't be alone

There I'll unfold my weakness, my sad incompleteness, the last of my works all undone

With my fallen brothers and the ghosts of old lovers, forgiven by every last one


(chorus)

Everyone thinks that they know me, and everyone's wrong don't you see

Cause I still hear the silence through the buzzing, that music is the love that allows me to be


In this age of illusion, through the fog of confusion; It's hard to know what to believe

When the wind of emotion whips the waves on my ocean; The truth seems too deep to perceive

But dive only a moment weighted down with atonement, and trust in the stillness below

Past the passion and the mission and the wars of ambition, it's still there wherever I go


(chorus)


(bridge)

And when my time comes to fly

I'll join the heart of the sky

How I know, don't ask why

I don't know


Time is just here to grieve us, here to tease and deceive us, and leave us with nothing at last

But hold hands together and we can stand here forever in this now that all futures have past


When everyone thinks that they know you, When the world is a cage with no key

You just listen through the buzzing for the silence, that music is the love that allows you to be

You just listen through the buzzing for the silence, that music is the love that allows us to be

It's the love that allows us to be
