Like A Stone Lyrics

Verse 1

On a cobweb afternoon in a room full of emptiness
By a freeway, I confess I was lost in the pages
Of a book full of death, reading how we’ll die alone
And if we’re good, we’ll lay to rest anywhere we want to go

Chorus

In your house, I long to be
Room by room, patiently
I’ll wait for you there like a stone
I’ll wait for you there alone

Verse 2

And on my deathbed, I will pray to the gods and the angels
Like a pagan to anyone who will take me to heaven
To a place I recall, I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised, the wine was bled, and there you led me on

Chorus

In your house, I long to be
Room by room, patiently
I’ll wait for you there like a stone
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone

[Guitar Solo]

Bridge

And on I read until the day was gone
And I sat in regret of all the things I’ve done
For all that I’ve blessed and all that I’ve wronged
In dreams until my death, I will wander on

Chorus

In your house, I long to be
Room by room, patiently
I’ll wait for you there like a stone
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone
