Oh, The Places

My darling, you are here, but you are silent as a deer

There is distance in your face, your eyes are miles away from here

Do you feel me, I am near, be with me if you can

Let me try and heal your heart with my hand

 

Please tell me if you hurt and allow yourself to cry

I will hold you and lift the hair from your eye

If I speak, it will be sweet and I will not tell a lie

I will whisper to you this wild lullaby

 

Oh, the places, the places we'll go

Oh, the places, the places we'll know

Oh, the places, the places we'll go

The wonders we'll see, the world we will know

 

My darling, you are kind, won't you please take my hand

For I know you have questions about where you stand

When your fears take you down and only silence can be found

Let my heart and presence bring you back around

 

So tell me if you hurt, and allow yourself to cry

I will open your arms to the sun and the sky

If you speak it will be sweet and it just might make me cry

When we whisper together this wild lullaby

 

Oh, the places, the places we'll go

Oh, the places, the places we'll know

Oh, the places, the places we'll go

The wonders we'll see, the world we will know
