    I heard your voice at midnight
    By the river shore
    I saw your child sleeping
    Behind an open door
    The moon was in the river
    Shining up from the floor
    And the fish swam like moonlight
    Through your child's closing door
    And morning is the long way home

    The fisherman was drowning
    By his broken heel
    His screams were tiny bubbles
    And his tongue made of steel
    When he died his teeth made stones
    For your lonely child to feel
    And his eyes like prayers were quiet
    When you heard his tongues of steel
    And morning is the long way home

    The ghost of ghosts was passing
    And the grasses waved like hair
    I knew I'd die forgotten
    I'm the whisper of your care
    The water would surround me
    And my body would despair
    But my heart would understand
    The door that's closing there
    And morning is the long way home
