lyrics

Old roads to take you home

through these foreign fields where you awoke at dawn

to a golden change, the warmth in stones;

a slow thaw to this winter of war.


For Katherine Cove. Katherine Cove.

Some day soon I shall return, my love.


All the widows flock to where the church bells sound,

My keepsakes worn down in my hands

And the names get noted through the towns.

All of your sons are blooded now.


Katherine Cove. Katherine Cove.

Some day soon I shall return, my love.

I’m so far from God here, so far from home.

In my weakest hours I kept you close.


She is within me, she is my place of rest

Drawing closer now with every step

and of all the things I left behind.

She is a whisper in me, she plays on my mind.


Katherine Cove. Katherine Cove.

Some day soon I shall return, my love.

I’m so far from God here, so far from home.

In my weakest hours I kept you close.
