Far across this red horizon
I am walking down the line
I am picking up the pieces
That this storm has left behind

After all the clouds have fallen
I would breach the battle ground
Turn your darkness into light love
Turn your silence into sound

(Chorus 1)
But I can’t cage you in my arms
When my heart is jumping forward
To avoid your false alarms.

And you can’t tell me not to stay
When I opened up the window
And I watched you fly away

Have you raised the final anchor?
Have you cut the mast-sail free?
Sending offer to redemption
Like a funeral at sea

I will always hear you calling
You’re the sway of falling leaves
Like a bird you’ll spiral onward
And you’ll know just where I’ll be

(Chorus 2)
And I can’t cage you in my arms
When my heart is jumping forward
To avoid your false alarms.

And you can’t tell me not to stay
When I opened up the window
And I watched you fly away

(Repeat chorus 2)

And I am closing up my window
‘till I see a blue horizon
And the quiet call of love will fly my way
