Lyrics
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

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

And on my death bed
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

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

And on I read
Till the day was gone
And I sat in regret
For 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

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
