lyrics

The cabin on the lake, the eastern summer heat
the sloping, winding woods and the dogs running free
the piano playing soft the old familiar tune
and there at the window, calling me home was you

One with my blood and the scent of the land
I knew where to wake, I knew how to use my hands
beholden to none and a daughter to two
there was summer and autumn, winter and spring, and you

Lord, bring me back to the life that I knew

When you first saw me and gave me a name
it was for the sound and the way that it rang
Not for the martyr and not for the saint:
a witness of torment, destined to die of heartbreak

No, this wasn't the way it was all meant to go
Our story was stolen from us years ago
Now every morning I wake feeling blue
No joy is as deep, no vision as sweet without you

Lord, bring me back to the life that I knew
