Great Lake Swimmers – The Great Exhale lyrics

Look at the names carved into the rocks.
Look at the days when they were lit up.
Brushing my hand and I feel their age.
Years of radiance, years of rain.

And the world stops spinnin' when you stop spinnin'.
Sighs when you sigh, when you sigh.
I'm coming home so leave the light on for me.
I'm drawing over the luminous [numinous?] veil
When I'll get in I will see you all there.
I'm drawing on the great exhale.

Uncertain ground so I walk lightly,
Translating names of lost families.
Somebody's sleeping that you should not wake.
Drifting whispers over damp clay.

And the world stops spinnin' when you stop spinnin'.
Sighs when you sigh, when you sigh.
I'm coming home so leave the light on for me.
I'm drawing over the luminous veil.
When I'll get in I will see you all there.
I'm drawing on the great exhale.

Wide open spaces...
Been asleep a long time...
Punctuating places...
Coming out like old teeth...

I'm coming home so leave the light on for me.
I'm drawing over the luminous veil.
When I'll get in I will see you all there.
I'm drawing on the great exhale.
I'm soaring in on the great exhale.
