lyrics

Absence


Sister Moon over my shoulder
Thinks I don’t see her
Trying not to make it obvious
That she’s checking on me

All the stars I’ve wished on
Inside these wailing walls
Not one has brought you back
Guess they’re not wishing stars after all

Chorus
The absence of your presence
Is an aching, phantom limb
Ever in my heart
Never in my arms again

I’m doing fine
I hear myself say the words
But it takes all I can do
To get through the day


Mornings are the hardest
In sleep I can forget
Then I wake, and have to remember
How to breathe again

Chorus
The absence of your presence
Is an aching, phantom limb
Ever in my heart
Never in my arms again
