lyrics

I define God as the face of a child
But you'd leave your eyes when you were out there wild
Even then, you were a deity

You scratch and you pull and you float around,
But I'll be right here when you come back down
I'd be lying if I said I knew the way

Cry for the love of God
And don't ask why, for the love of God

Always a veil I could never lift
Though I got you everything on your Christmas list
Colored lights come back to me now

Pick up the phone for the love of God
Come back home for the love of God

The world the weight of everything, I hear you in that hollow ring
Bear the weight of everything, I hear you in that hollow ring
This is how we end up fine, your blood is always mine
On my shoulders sitting tall, there you will not fall

I define God as an old-soul girl
That I brought into a darkened world
But you're my light, you'll always be my light

Shine for the love of God
You're always mine, for the love of God
Sleep, for the love of God
Weep, for the love of God
Sleep, sleep
