lyrics

I had a vision of you

crying in the cold.

Through sobs you called out my name,

begging me to hold you.

And as you cried, your tears caught in the sun.

And I saw they were beads of jewels, every one.

I had a vision of you standing by the willow tree.

You knew I was all alone, so you said a prayer for me.

I saw you in my mind,

how I held you tight

for you were sad and afraid,

frightened in the night.

I said, “I’ll protect you,

don’t worry, hon.”

You laughed, “You’ll protect me, huh,

little one?”

And I just nodded at you,

and you knew, in that moment you knew.

You looked down at me so still

and you said, “Yeah, I guess you will.”

Every night I close my eyes

I hear your voice inside me.

I feel your breath upon my neck.

I know that you’re beside me.

And I pray to the gods that made us to be

That you’ll find your way back to me.

That soon I can squeeze your hand

and we’ll find us a happy end.

And now I feel your eyes

searching for my soul.

Wondering if I’m still here with you,

begging just to hold you.

If only you knew

these visions are true.

If only you knew

I’m still here for you.
