Lyrics

Verse 1
This wanting takes me over
I dive in though I may sink
I’m swimming in deep water
While I’m dying for a drink
I abandon my direction
Where the river’s standing still
And if my wet reflection
Says wander then I will

Chorus
Oh my soul
Oh my soul
Oh my soul
I’m listening to you now
Between the river and the railroad
Between the forest and the sea
I’ll follow you to places
You want my heart to be
Oh my soul
Oh my soul
Oh my soul
I’m listening to you now

Verse 2
Breaking glass can sound like music
In the moment where I stand
And the sand inside my hourglass
Is softer in my hands
Time drips into an ocean
Where only truth is heard
And we answer all our questions
Without saying any words

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
I swear that I can taste you
Between the bitter and the sweet
And a hunger for connection
Comes washing over me

Repeat Chorus
