Wait For The Echoes

With the weight of it all hanging over my head like a raincloud
I will set off in search of a piece of the new, morning sun
And I carefully stack all the new thoughts on top of the worries
And hope my Tower of Babel will bring me closer to You
So let me pour my wine into a goblet filled with holes
Then I'll wonder why it only falls to the floor
Let me sing my songs into empty holes and wait for the echoes
Then I'll go back to my home with a heavy load
With something I stole wrapped up in some newspaper headlines
I'm placing gifts at your feet that you never asked me to bring
The fact that I speak only proves I don't know how to listen
So I'll keep trying the door while blindly ignoring the key
So let me pour my wine into a goblet filled with holes
Then I'll wonder why it only falls to the floor
Let me sing my songs into empty holes and wait for the echoes
Then I'll go back to my home with a heavy load
I shed a couple of tears and I tell You the fears that I'm facing
And in a couple of years I find I have not progressed
Do I love You enough for me to shut my mouth when You are speaking
Or do I put on a show and hope You're entertained
I've got a weight in my chest from a love void of conversation
I've got a feeling that this isn't how You want it to be
