Waterdeep – Learning How To Rest lyrics

I came around the corner
of the outer edge of town
You were standing in the center
There were people gathered all around

I'd never get through this crowd
My heart went kind of numb
But You smiled when You saw me
and You beckoned me to come

So I struggled through the pressing mass
I had a thousand things to say
But I was sure Your ears were flooded
And there was just too much in the way

Chorus:
But then You said to me
"Come away by yourself to a lonely place for a while
Well, I'm sure you're tired
You know, I cannot even see your smile
There's just too many people here
Why don't you come and be with me"
Then you took my hand
And we headed out for the sea

I got home late this morning
You've been gone since the other day
They took You to the tomb
But I guess we all go there someday

I came out here to get away
to get some time to think
Cause nothing's making sense right now
I feel like I'm on the brink

Then on the distant shore
I hear some strong voice say
"That side is yielding nothing
Cast your nets the other way"
It was You

Chorus:
Then you said to me,
"Come away by yourself to a lonely place for a while
Well, I'm sure you're tired
You know, I cannot even see your smile
There's just too much confusion here
Why don't you come and be with me"
I asked You where are we going
You simply told me that I'd be free

Bridge:
You know things get hard
and the world's not stopping for me
But I know now what to do,
and I know where I need to be
cause You said to me...

[repeat chorus]
