Jesca Hoop – While You Were Away lyrics
While you were away
You were away
I made
Bricks of bread
Bricks to break
From home grown grain
Planted in rows
And gathered when gold
And ground by my hand stone

While you were away
You were away
I slept past the dawn
The sun would set
And the sun would say
This night will be long
So I lit up the stars
On this ceiling of ours
And I wrote song for hours

So your home is warm
Cuz I kept warm and alive while you were gone

While you were away
You were away
I made
A charm of herbs
Herbs that pray
And the charm is brave
It’s guarding the glass
And it guarding the doors and it guarding the floor boards
Through the storm through the storm
The windows fought the wind
And the rival oak’s broken arm
But they never gave in
So I’m tending the fire
That built before you left
It’s not gone out once

So your home is warm cuz I kept warm
And alive while you were gone
