lyrics

we are many miles apart
and i'm no better than the average jane.
the sky is without stars or i miss you cards
so i try hard not to complain

about the weather or anything else here
cause things have pretty much stayed the same
since the call came and you headed on your odyssey,
trying to make a name.

and most days i just hold my breath,
await the next big bang,
cause every new storm that blows in
could bring you back again.

i sit at home and work this loom,
look straight through the boys and mutter little prayers.
i weave myself a piece of sanity
and hope you're safe out there.

and most days i just hold my breath,
await the next big bang,
cause every new storm that blows in
could bring you back and

i know the road is long.
i know the sea is wide and deep.
but i know you promised to come home,
and that's a promise you should keep.

and most days i just hold my breath,
await the next big bang,
cause every new storm that blows in
could bring you back again.
