lyrics

So my sister weeps for the morning
And I weep at the sight
And she dreams of releasing her burden
Releasing both the grunt and the light

And she lives out west where postmen won’t go
She envies my home in the sun
She struggles to find the words to say
To her husband and son

Oh words and binds that stick
Around in minds and contracts thick
Oh faith that this will work
Oh pray to end our search

Darling, don’t go
Darling, you’re not alone
Darling, come home
Darling, don’t go

She spends her days outside in the cold
Remembering promises she’s made
She swore she wouldn’t be the one
To repeat our parents’ mistakes

I visit her when I can
I find her in the garden alone
Before I leave her husband says to me,
“I love her, but take her home”

Oh words and binds that stick
Around in minds and contracts thick
Oh faith that this will work
Oh pray to end our search
