Grain Of Salt

This song is by John Doe and appears on the album A Year in the Wilderness (2007).

That grain of salt
You talk about
Gets bigger and bigger each day

It's making a pearl
Inside my heart
With layers and layers of tears

I give you this pearl
To save our hearts
To keep them from bursting a vein

My only hope
Is that someday soon
You'll press your palm to my chest
And the warmth of your hand
Will draw out the stone
That wakes me every night

I give you this pearl
To show my love
I've grown it for over a year
And if I'm true, then maybe you
Will take me along with the jewel
