lyrics

I have felt
so full before
but now I feel so hollowed out.
I never wrestled
with my faith
but of late I've been filled with doubt.
And why when things
fall right into place
can't they just stay where they are?
Oh God I'm growing
restless for home
Oh now it feels so far

Just like the morning moon
who asks the sun,
"Where did the night go?"
And in the light of day
she fades in the blue,
fades in the day glow.
Oh how the morning moon
always seems
so out of place,
and as time goes on
you cannot see her face.

I couldn't seem
to find myself,
oh how long this dark night has been.
I've been lost and stumbling
searching all around
until I could only look within.
And I find that in
emptying myself
that I have new room to fill
And slowly I'm transfigured and
glowing with new light
and a whisper says, "I am; be still".

Just like the crescent moon
who asks the sun,
"Where did the day go?"
And in the dusk of day
she lights up the blue,
and she has found home.
Oh how the growing moon
always seems
to find her place,
and as time goes on
she will not hide her face.
