lyrics

There are no ghosts under the table
But there’s a spare key in the door
There are curtains on the windows
But we’ve forgotten what they’re for
There’s light on our backs
And nothing on the walls
But a shelf full of books
About a long forgotten war

And there’s a boat just off the coast
That belonged to a good man
Who said he only felt free
When he lost sight of the land
Now he’s a fire on the beach
And he’s a black dog in our dreams
He’s the poem in our pockets
That’s not as sad as it seems

It says hold the things you love
With both of your hands
And hold the things you don’t
Until you understand

I was chest deep in the Tasman
On the night you went away
I was still just trying to figure out
What to sing and what to say
Because I couldn’t feel it
In your cold hands
But I could see it in your eyes
You asking what are you going to do
With your one wild and precious life?

Because you’ve got to hold the things you love
With both of your hands
And hold the things you don’t
Until you understand
And oh this house was
Never built to last much
Longer than a year
It’s just the sunshine
In the springtime
It’s just the shedding of a tear

Three more days and the sun will come up
There’ll be bread in our bellies
And there’ll be wine in our cup
Three more nights and we’ll be tired no more
And together we’ll all push that boat
Off of this rocky shore

And we’ll holding what we love
With both of our hands
We’ll no longer hate anything at all
Because we’ll understand
And for the first time that dawn light
Will warm up our skin
As we lose sight of the land
