On a cobweb afternoon
In a room full of emptiness 
By a freeway I confess 
I was lost in the pages 
Of a book full of death  Reading how we'll die alone 
And if we're good, we'll lay to rest
 Anywhere we want to go

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently 
I'll wait for you there 
Like a stone 
I'll wait for you there  Alone 

On my deathbed I will pray
To the gods and the angels 
Like a pagan to anyone 
Who will take me to heaven 
To a place I recall 
I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised 
The wine was bled
And there you led me on

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently 
I'll wait for you there 
Like a stone 
I'll wait for you there  Alone 

 Alone 

And on I read
 Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret 
Of all the things I've done
For all that I've blessed 
And all that I've wronged 
In dreams until my death 
I will wander on

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently 
I'll wait for you there 
Like a stone 
I'll wait for you there  Alone 

Alone
