Matthew Perryman Jones, “Until the Dawn Appears”

matthew perryman jones, “until the dawn appears”

i’ve been turning up the stones of my own discontent
and i’m finding out where all my hidden sorrows went
they’ve been laying there for years, i’ve kept them out of view
well it’s time i dust you off and take a good look at you
oh, how long? oh, how long?

well it’s easier to clench your fists and grind your teeth
than to look into the sadness that lives underneath
well you can kill off all those feelings, they’ll just turn to ghosts
they will take over your house and become the host
oh, how long? oh, how long?

well the man of sorrows walked the shores of Galilee
and his eyes were cast with joy towards the crystal sea
where the shadows will be gone and all these bitter tears
and my heart will hang on that until the dawn appears
oh, how long? oh, how long?

oh, you won’t let me go.
