Lyrics

RENOVATION


I?m sitting alone in a place quite apart
I?m lonely and low, no place to go
The rain on the window beats time with my heart
I?m colder than snow, lonely and low
Over that mountain the sun?s in the sky
The birds are all singin?, they?re higher than high
And I want to be there in the sweet bye and bye
As soon as I?ve started to grow
As soon as I?ve started to grow


Today is a Friday, autumn is here
I?m lonely and low, no place to go
I?m reaching for something that?s guarded by fear
I?m colder than snow, lonely and low
The mountain seems closer, at least in my mind
So many heartaches I must leave behind
I?m hoping those clouds are all silver-lined
As I look up from way down below
As I look up from way down below


There?s hurt and there?s grief and there?s pain all around
I?m lonely and low, no place to go
I really must lower these walls to the ground
I?m colder than snow, lonely and low
I?m building a house where the old one used be
A full renovation of what was once me
And I hope you?ll be there when I?m turning the key
Of a door into some place to go

Where I?m not feeling colder than snow
Where I?m not feeling lonely and low
To a place that I?ll want you to know
