Lyrics

One Step Closer Than Yesterday

Yesterday I said a prayer
I breathed the words into the air
I gave them to a sky of melted grey
I didn't say goodbye
I just gave my whisper away

Hear the thunder, feel the rain
Counting seconds between the pain
Ever after will have to wait
But I'm one step closer than yesterday

Yesterday I laid a wreath
To mark the spot where angels sleep
And look for signs of forgotten grace
I just closed my eyes
That's when I felt the fluttering of wings

Passing time
How can I get on with moving on?
Ask me today
I'd have to tell you I'll never be that strong

Yesterday I held a seed
I dug the earth to bury deep
A tragedy no words can explain
And though I walked away
Somehow I know a garden remains
