lyrics

You wrote a song I'll never hear
’bout a forest black with fear
Only sound a whisper on the wind
Of wolves gathering

You told a story tears on your face
How the wolves kept you safe
Did they lead you through the gray
When you slipped away

You waited for me to hear your cry
I waited for you to look to the sky
You waited for me to set things right
But limbs fall from trees in the stormiest night
Limbs fall from trees in the stormiest night

I listened to your song again
’bout choosing between love and a friend
What was the choice made in the end
Who did you intend

You bet on me you laid it on the line
I bet on you with a growing pine
Branches bend under the vine
Did you fold in time

You waited for me to hear your cry
I waited for you to look to the sky
You waited for me to set things right
But limbs fall from trees in the stormiest night
Limbs fall from trees in the stormiest night

Now I know I waited too long
To hear the words in your song
You sang that you'd soon be gone
But music carries on

I wrote a song you'll never hear
Out of the forest into the clear
Can you hear my words on the wind
May they take you home
