From the album Transparent

Lyrics

Outside the snow is falling
I thought I heard you calling
Calling out my name but I am here alone

The clock it moves so slowly
Reminding me how lonely
Days can be and nights can turn your heart to stone

I never realized you meant so much to me
Now I’m a prisoner in quiet company

As soon as I hear you call
I throw my caution to the wind
The writing’s on the wall
I feel a lifetime’s happiness
In no time at all
As soon as I hear you call

I cannot bear the silence
Like some sudden violence
Ripping at my heart in this way

I want to reach and touch you
But shadows close around you
Pulling at your face until it fades away

Until that moment that means so much to me
I know then I am as strong as I can be

As soon as I hear you call
I throw my caution to the wind
The writing’s on the wall
I feel a lifetime’s happiness
In no time at all
As soon as I hear you call

Take me away
From this cold and lonely night
Make it right
Hold me ‘till the morning light

As soon as I hear you call
I throw my caution to the wind
The writing’s on the wall
I feel a lifetime’s happiness
In no time at all
As soon as I hear you call
