  • Lyrics: You stand at a mighty distance you hang in the dark like the moon You build these beautiful ruins You walk out of a room too soon You stand among the living but you hold hands with the past I leave jewels on your doorstep you mistake them for pieces of glass I know none of this matters I know you'll never change It's in your restlessness It's in your soul, I guess Can you hear a thing I say when you stand that mighty distance away? You drive into the water off the Bridge of Broken Dreams You are the Prodigal Daughter up against the time machine I know none of this matters I know you'll never change It's in your restlessness It's in your soul, I guess Can you hear a thing I say when you stand that mighty distance away? Somewhere we were undamaged somewhere we were ideal Now we hurry through places the same places we used to kneel You know all of this matters you know we always change It's in our restlessness it's in our souls, I guess it's in the things we say when we stand that mighty distance away
