lyrics

The Catcher

There’s a strength in letting go
That takes more than a casual hope
Commit yourself to the space across the divide
We all take the center stage
In the circus show that we arrange
But You’re the one who’s waiting on the other side.

I close my eyes and I feel the wind
Blow soft against my face and then
With outstretched arms I waiting for your hands
A leaf blown by the autumn breeze
Disconnected from these earthly trees
Carry my on to a new home when I die

There’s an empty hollow ring
To the siren song this harlot sings
Her lullabies can put you fast to sleep
Before you know, you’ll wake to find
That your roots are so deep you cannot fly
To save your life, you’ll have to cut the ties

I close my eyes and I feel the wind
Blow soft against my face and then
With outstretched arms I waiting for your hands
A leaf blown by the autumn breeze
Disconnected from these earthly trees
Carry my on to a new home when I die

Close your eyes and release your grip
Of the trapeze bar you’ve trusted in
Extend your arms and wait for the catcher’s hands.
