Lyrics

The Temple

It took ?til morning for the sky to clear through
and I had walked all night
my shoes were tattered and these stones beneath me
cut in through the light

I circled round me ?til I found the traces
what once had been my home
these empty walls and now this cracked foundation
where all I?d ever known
And all around me there were

Pre-C

Pieces of places that made up each box, each room
and hours of hours that came in so soon
and I knew

Chorus

It started so simple, this labor of love
Turning stone into temple, this tower above
where I pray

Verse Two

I picked up brushes and I rolled in shades of lightening
and I spent days ablaze in sheets of walls and windows
I climbed the towers and I stained the glass for hours
?til I could see through rose
and all around me there were

Pre-C

Shimmering Images, peering in shades of blue
silvery faces all shiny new
Inside you

Chorus

It started so simple, this labor of love . . .

Bridge:

And I don?t know how I knew just where to place the pieces
stacking stone upon stone, yeah
but with every move now I feel this growing confidence, yeah
the sense I?ve found this
blue/print/that/you?ve/sent

Final Chorus

It started to simple this labor of love
Turning stone into temple
this tower above where I pray

And I cry and I treasure these secrets I?ve found
and I try not to measure the depth of this ground
where I lay
and I pray
where I pray
and I?ll . . . . . . stay.
