I close the door
But you let yourself back in
I let you go
You find me again
You enter my heart, uninvited
And I recognize all the signs

You fill up my eyes
You roll down my cheeks
Take over my heart, piece by piece by piece
But you're just passing through
You're gonna have to leave soon
You need to know
This is not your home

Every now and then you change your name
I've heard you called heartache
Some call you sorrow or pain
You come like a breeze and settle on me
And sometimes like a storm without warning

You fill up my eyes
You roll down my cheeks
Take over my heart, piece by piece by piece
But you're just passing through
You're gonna have to leave soon
By now you must know
This is not your home

You bring the tears
The tears release my pain
So in a way, I have you to thank

But now I must
Dry my eyes
Wipe my cheeks
Reclaim my heart, piece by piece by piece
'Cause I need to breathe again
I have to let the sunlight in
God didn't make my soul
To be your home
This is not your home

    This has special meaning to me after the death of my husband and loss of my children. Dealing with it piece by piece by piece. But when you let the sunlight in, there's eternal perspective and being together forever. Still the pain and sorrow come without a warning.
